You do know that Cingular started when AT&T decided to spin off their wireless operations into its own division? And that then they just pulled it back into the fold later?
I was in college, and I found out about it on the way back from class. I skipped the rest of my classes that day, and just kept the TV on, watching in shock.
My dad worked for IBM doing contract work for NASA through the Apollo missions and SkyLab (we have all the patches at home), but he wasn't involved in the shuttle at all. But I still wanted to go to space. Still do.
And don't forget the movie Sneakers!
"My voice is my password. Identify me."
But, the difference is that Apple fanbois would willingly sign up to that or worse, as long as Saint Steve asked.
Well, maybe not Windows ME, but they did agree to Snow Leopard. That's in the same ballpark.
Trolls rising to trollbait in 1....
For one, randomly not allowing Mac users to get/send their mail. They did some upgrade on the Exchange end that broke the SMTP sending, which it shouldn't have, since they don't auth. This lasted a few days, and kept recurring at random intervals. I have no idea whether it was the fault of Exchange or the admins, honestly. I just had angry users (and was one myself). I'm not privy to CIS's inner workings; just a tech geek in a non-teaching department here.
This will make me unable to moderate, but what the hell?
Brown had a unix based backend for years. A few years back, they got a new IT head, who insisted on off-the-shelf packages for everything. So out went postoffice, and in came Exchange. It's been running Exchange since then, and yes, untold numbers of problems (though nothing like this). We're not even on the most recent version of Exchange, which will make my office's future transition to Snow Leopard problematic since afaik the native Mail interoperability with Exchange that comes in 10.6 won't work with anything but the latest.
AFAIK, the plan is to move everyone to Google eventually, departments too. Once they get all the security figured out. This isn't helping, of course.
Are you on AT&T? Are you in the US? Which site did you download the mobileconfig from? Are you on a 3G or 3Gs?
I'm on AT&T, in the US, downloaded the mobileconfig from benm.at, and I'm on a 3Gs, and my tethering went away when I upgraded to 3.1.
LOL they are. Though the Bank of Nikolai stole from Steve Martin's Fred's Bank bit.
Gah. Not indent.
I have told my family that if they want me to fix their computers, they have to consult with me and take my advice on purchasing a computer first.
Except my mom. She'll still get free help.
