Blackberry is dead anyways. One way or the other it's going to be cannablised. Move to a platform with a future.
You can encrypt text files as well.
And how exactly would a binary log be any more secure even in that regard? You can have binary streams in stdio as well.
Binary logs are anti-*nix. Rebut that.
Getting to the point. A couple of KVM hosts may have to stay Debian for a while, but my other servers will be migrated very soon unless Debian removes systemd dependencies.
What if I want a straight text log file that requires no other tools? Why would anyone even have a binary log on a *nix system?
If you want binary log files that require tools to dump them to text, use Windows.
Binary logs are also far more secure, but I guess that doesn't matter to you.
That has to be most bizarre justification I've yet read. How exactly is a binary log more secure?
*nix systems have had permissions systems for the better part of half a century. If you don't want someone looking at a file, don't give them permissions, but if they do have permissions, the mere fact that a file is binary isn't an obstacle save to the technically illiterate (who wouldn't likely be looking at a log file anyways).
I think balkanization is the way it's going to go. It may suck in some respects, but if I end up paying $30 or $40 a month, but it's made up of programs I actually have to watch, as opposed to flipping through dozens of channels filled with duplication or crap I have no interest in, for double that price, then i'll be happy.
And frankly, the studios should start getting worried. With Netflix producing and buying original programming, with HBO bringing its own suite to streaming, you can be sure players like AMC will be close behind. The traditional production and distribution model is beginning to break down. It may take a few more years, but you will, in a decade, have companies like Netflix and HBO as online behemoths, and the studios will find themselves the poor cousins.
For me it's never really been about price. I've started using Google Play to rent movies and episodes of TV programs. I won't pay $18 for a brand new movie, so Google can get stuffed on that, but $4.99 isn't too bad.
Just buy a Chromecast and deal with it. I stopped caring about DRMed video a long time ago. All I care about is that I can watch Netflix with my tablet as a remote control. If HBO works on Chromecast, I'll be the first guy in line to buy a subscription.
Will someone just tell me if it's time to panic or not?
That depends. Are you bleeding through every orifice yet or not?
Years ago I took one of the Windows server 2008 courses. While I did learn a bit on how to manage CAs in Windows, all in all, it was a tremendous waste of time; equal parts obvious crap and annoying horn tooting ("Windows Server 2008 is the best server operating system on the market today" was literally one of the statements in the intro). It was an utter joke and worst of all taught very little that couldn't be find in other, more definitive sources. At the end of the whole process, I decided that Microsoft certifications were in some ways more of a marketing ploy than educational tool.
Else all this is going to prove is whether you paid the tithe to oracle or not.
I thought that's what certifications were pretty much for.
Do you do online banking and shipping? Same tubes.
So your advice is what? That women should hide their sexuality because there are deviants who will try to rape them or break into their cloud accounts?
A free society must protect the right of people to enjoy their freedoms, and where some small group of criminals and sociopaths attempt to destroy that freedom, the first words out of a free people's mouths shouldn't be "Well you had it coming you slut!"
