... and after the dump, you have to flush the filesystem to make sure there are not dirty bits left before finally unmounting.
I am amazed you were able to take that pun as far as you just did. Wow.
Trust me. Your running IE6 on Windows. Many of your companies PCs are infected.
Well, I have to admit most of the people I work with now are also in technology, which tends to mean lower infection rates than "regular" users, but I still haven't even heard of it happening, which says something. My last employer used industry standard safeguards, and PCs got infected on a daily basis. Now, I just don't hear about it anymore.
At the very least they are infected with the Windows Virus and the IE6 variant
Yes, the XP SP2 strain.
but most users are not allowed. It's just what the software says
Rats. I got distracted and hit submit without typing in the message about Firefox being individually licensed. Oh, well, that will teach me not to reread my post before submitting.
So basically your company has an enormous number of highly secured steel doors, but only three walls?
Funny, but (fortunately) not the best analogy. I'd say it's more like having a screen door inside the bank vault. We have a lot (and I mean a lot) of precautions in place, some of which I didn't even know existed until I started working there. I actually think the easiest way to get past them all would be to physically force your way into one of our buildings and remove it that way. Come to think of it, I can't think of a single instance of malware infection since I started working there.
Another funny tidbit, though... There is an option to install Firefox on our workstations, but most users are not allowed. It's just what the software says because it doesn't know how to say anything else, but I always thought that was funny, too.
IE shows no sign of vanishing from the corporate landscape
I work at a big company that takes an enormous number of precautions to secure and protect the confidential information of millions of people. And we still use IE6 with no sign of changing any time soon.
is ndiswrapper too much to expect of anyone to use, even the easy as hell to use gui for wireless because it isn't installed by default?
ndiswrapper probably isn't necessary. The software was most likely VZ Access Manager, which is just a modem dialer. Ubuntu recognizes the modem, so you only need to tell it what number to dial: #777. I'm a total linux noob and managed to get WWAN setup on Ubuntu.
Have they perhaps considered that it's the hallucinations that somehow drive the craving for coffee, and not the other way around?
However, they also suggest that people who are more prone to hallucinations could also be more stressed and more likely to consume large amounts of caffeine.
There is no mention of the control group.
No, there's not, but they did mention that they polled them about a variety of questions, including their caffeine use. The control group would be the subset of those 200 people who admitted to not drinking caffeine.
ANYONE can raise them in a clean, sterile environment for very little in the way of captial
I dunno. To me, "clean, sterile environment" means "no bugs."
With the information age on the rise, conscious use of IT becomes a vital skill for following generations — and when I see how teachers over here use computers, I do certainly not want to trust schools with this. So as the days of 10 CLS:? "HELLO WORLD!" are over, what would be a good programming language for a six year old to start with? What concepts are most important to teach first to a kid? Is there something like "Eclipse Kids Edition"? And as our daughter is also due for school in two years — does it also come in pink?
In addition, we want the kids to learn the social aspects of coding, so "free and open source" is a must."
