Facebook is raking in billions? Did I miss something?
You're basically hooked to a pager, which means you need to be near a phone, and usually near a computer with internet connectivity.
I don't work in operations, but everyone in decent places I've worked at did get paid around 3hours of salary per 24hours of wearing the pager. Then it was a minimum of 1 hour per "call" (more like issue, as it could involve multiple calls) except for the first one of the day which was included in the 3hours.
That meant that in a typical week you'd get paid for (24*7)-40 hours of "pager duty", which amounted to 16 hours of salary, so 2 days extra. That's pretty good, assuming you're on a decent rotation and don't have to be THE guy doing it every single week.
Supposed to be ported to Alpha as 'Was sold for Alpha' ?
I saw that it exists in USB format, called the Mouse wiggler or something similar.
Apparently, police use it to prevent machines from getting locked when they seize them. I don't remember who makes them but they also make some kind of power 'bridge' to allow you to plug a running machine to a UPS without shutting it down.
Well, I guess it depends on the amount of servers. Drive failures are very very common to me, I mean, techs go in and change at least a drive or two every week. Those would be one or two servers down, with one or two restores, with one or two pissed clients.
RAID is very very, very useful, as long as you don't think it replaces backups obviously.
An option would be giving her an iPhone 3g with a data plan and install http://findmyi.org/ .
But then, who's going to protect her from interweb-predators?
I believe this is not necessary. You should not be playing with RCs and betas on machine you use for actual work, and it could end up creating a lot of support problems for Microsoft from people who installed older versions.
Why is this being posted over and over on very tech site?
You're installing a beta or a release candidate. Do you expect it to be supported forever?
And are we really surprised Microsoft put in just a tiny bit of protection to prevent the average joe from continuing to use Windows 7 RC forever?
Mod this up guys! A lot of links seem to be redirects to malware sites containing FakeAV etc..
I'll wait until Netcraft confirms the death of PalmOS.
Or did they confirm it 5 years ago already?
