Since this is slashdot - let's talk about the new tech systems:
So will mental health professionals be required to do a check against gun owner databases? Will a mental illness database need to be created so that potential gun buyers can be screened at purchase time? How about house-holding - if someone in the same residence is a registered gun owner, will they be forced to surrender their weapons?
How about posting some pictures of the milky way? I've only barely seen it once while on Hilton Head island.
Until we have an open source printer that can be forked to print another printer which can be used to print the chip and the board, we won't be truly open.
Would the printer spec qualify for GPL or LGPL?
If you live in the US (the posting implies that you do) and you can't resolve the issue with AT&T, then I would file a FCC Complaint.
You can even file the complaint online.
That said, 20%, is not a huge difference - is it worth fighting over?
Remember when people used to be concerned that when buying a 10 Gig hard drive, it wasn't really 10 Gigabytes?
(I hope you weren't expecting me to make your decision for you.)
I may answer the phone, and in general, talking to me on the phone is usually unpleasant, even bordering on unsafe.
He'd be smokin hot for at least a second or two until he vaporized.
Pretty much, no matter what you do, even if you build a wiki, have everything amazingly documented, and are in the top 10% of all shops in terms of best practices, the new person will find reasons to find fault with what you have done. Servers will be rebuilt, upgrades will happen, etc. A year from now, things will either be better off than when you were running them or worse off, but the reality is that re-use just doesn't happen enough in our industry. So if re-use isn't happening, then it's really just up to the quality of the individual.
I'm not sure at what age I learned that when I put my baby bottle down that it wouldn't mysteriously float in the air, but I suspect that I wasn't educated on gravity, but in fact learned of the existence of gravity through observation and tests.
Outside of perhaps the favorable mutation's of bacteria to become antibiotic resistant, I don't have a significant opportunity to observe and test evolution.
I find it bizarre how emotional both sides of the evolutionary debate get. Either take the time to do real science or go watch TV.
Of course if I was actually God's proxy, I would have had first post.
Later that day Tim used some toilet paper and noted that although the manufacturer said that it was a soft as a cloud, cloud computing is not ready for the toilet yet.
We currently have Checkpoint (firewall and vpn), MS Windows Server 2000 (file and print services), and a number of other systems that are browser based and internet/intranet friendly.
So the questions are:
1) What would work best for VPN access to internal resources?
2) What would work well for File sharing over a VPN/Remote access?
Some more explanation:
The vpn would need to support both Linux clients as well as Windows XP clients, hopefully able to support Vista and OSX clients into the future.
We do run a checkpoint VPN today, however we only have a single T1 for vpn access. I'm currently thinking that I'll move our high traffic volume email file services to a colocation site so that I'll have access to much higher bandwidth for those servers. Our lower traffic development servers (mostly linux), will remain behind the T1 which will be fine for 99% of the access.
Although accessing Windows Server is bearable over the VPN, running a Windows Domain over a vpn, domain logins, don't seem to make much sense. I'm currently thinking of using samba for 'shared file' access.
From a sysadmin perspective, we can run linux, bsd or any *nix based solution. We could handle a windows based solution as well, but are somewhat biased against it.
From the subject — SMB = Small / Mid sized Business, as opposed to Server Message Block (although you can see that I'm concerned about both topics)
Thanks for your time!"
