Re: to be fair to Farthosts
Agreed. I'm serious and don't call me Shirley.

"This hack hasn't slowed us down. That source is already missing a ton of fixes and improvements we committed over the last week alone, and six months from now it will be missing major critical new features. In short: it's old and getting older," he argues.
That's what he said, as he pleaded with Tim Cook.
Perhaps he means the criminals will submit code improvements back to Apple?
Don't you fucking forget that the Grey Beards have got Linux to the point where its usable by the masses. If you want binary logs and a single point of failure (and compromise) then enjoy your future - while it lasts. Just don't expect a warm welcome when you return to the fold...
Thanks for that.
Yes I'm testing Slackware too at the minute but I believe they are currently sitting on the fence regarding this. The thing is that if systemd gets too invasive (which it already is) then core services and apps may require more effort than what its worth to run as non-systemd versions.
From what I know, the only non-systemd committed distros (at this moment in time) are Slackware, Gentoo, Crux and Alpine Linux. I think out of those I would go with Alpine Linux, a distro which is very much underrated IMHO.
Well i thought it was April 1st when I heard Gimp was getting systemd integration, this is just one big fucking piss take IMHO.
You have Mr Pottyring saying systemd is perfect and that any faults are with downstream implementation. Well I spent several days wondering why the fuck my Cups server had broken in Debian Sid, only to find out that systemd requires both IPv4 and 6 to be active else Cups will not work - I had disabled IPv6 due to previous issues. I would expect Cups not to work if both stacks were non-functional.
Now I have a Samba server on my main desktop that hangs at shutdown due to fact that systemd appears to be killing Samba before it dismounts the networked shares properly - no sane fix so far from what I see.
Yes I know Debian Sid is "unstable" but it was rock solid before this systemd shit came along. My impression of Sid and Debian itself are now one of turmoil and I can only hope that Debian reverses its original decision and boots systemd into touch also, I hope they seriously have a look at their leaders because they have allowed this mess to happen.
If Debian stay with systemd then I will go elsewhere. I have already started playing with FreeBSD and FreeNAS along with OpenBSD too as I'm quite familiar with these systems anyway and their leaderships are not prone to follow like sheep at a whim.
Personally I wouldn't want a Debian fork but if that's what it takes then so be it but the Linux ecosystem is already too fragmented in my opinion. If there was a fork then sure I'd look into it but whats really needed is a weed out of the Debian leaders that have got us to this point, they are setting the distro up for its potential downfall.
The work is based in our Clerkenwell offices. Be aware that you'll be selecting and maintaining your own office hardware: if you need tech support to use a computer and keep it functional this is not the job for you.
So you actually need to know something about how computers operate. How novel...
"I've been on UFB (NZ Fibre) in Christchurch for 6 months now (recently changed to an uncapped 100/50 plan) and I have to say you're entirely wrong about Netflix. I regularly stream HD content (as do my wife and daughter, often all simultaneously) and the international bandwidth isn't ever an issue."
So you're one of those 10% of the population that can actually get it at the moment. Good for you, when we get to a customer usage rate of 70% come back here and let us know how good your experience still is.
I hope Telecom have done their homework as the data usage is going to explode exponentially. Remember several years ago when they released that unlimited ADSL plan which brought the broadband network to its knees? My connection went from 5mbps down to dial-up speed. After a few days of that shit, Telecom no longer had me as a customer.
