The proper way to install your VoIP system is to run all the phones on their own VLAN that does not have Internet access. There is no reason for the phone set to have Internet access so why would you even have that on its wire? It shouldn't even have access to your desktops or servers, and vice-versa. The only thing that should be able to talk to the phones is the VoIP controller.

I was going to reply but the AC in post #49205121 said all that needs said about your rant. But please allow one point: " A quarter of all male suicides in India are directly attributed to family problems." So? I'm surprised it's that low. Besides just plain mental health issues I'm guessing that family and business problems are the cause of most suicides, anywhere.

As far as "..a world they've never experienced and have little understanding of.." I've walked those halls for over two decades as employee and contractor. I've seen it with mine own eyes, and listed to the stories of coworkers.

Yeah, I got about 20 minutes in before I was about to put my fist through the monitor. The main perp said that only 20% of women are decent? I though we had rednecks in the US. Nothing like these total pieces of shit.

Now I see why women avoid IT jobs with all the H1-B dudes roaming the halls.

So the assumed front runner for the Democrats isn't credible when speaking about foreign policy? Not saying she's the best for the job, and you may not agree with her policy ideas, but her being a First Lady, a Senator, and a Secretary of State, you have to give her some foreign policy chops. Much more than any state governor may have.

I will give Jeb some chops just for hanging with dad and W, but not much.

Speaking of points of failure. I was helping out at a site that our corporate overlords purchased (makes things for airliners) that had an old SGI server that had one HD in it that is the boot device. They know nothing about SGI nor how to back it up, they don't have support for it. They say this is mission critical.

Fuck me running.

I think I'll have to build up a BSD box and dig through the garage for an old Adaptec SCSI card, maybe I can dd it, I hope.

Or let it die, they deserve it.
