It is a tank made look like a car. It reminds of of this hammer I bought where all I changed was the head and the handle.
They still aren't doing their design in like Microsoft does, in their Marketing department.
Do not forget that Google is a marketing company. What they sell is your views. So their IT department is part of the whole marketing as they ARE a marketing company.
I was thinking along the same lines. If you have 20TB you should already have a NAS. So buy a second NAS and mirror it. Cost of a QNAP os about 1000 EUR and 8x4TB=1200EUR. So for 2200EUR you have 32TB available. Those including Belgian taxes and I have not even searched for prices. If you 'only' want 20TB and no way to grow, you are ready with 5x4TB + 5tray for 1550EUR. (all prices via alternate.be if you want to verify. Cheaper IS possible.)
Companies do not like change and competition.
It might be a like a bigger brother, but not really a friend. http://public-dns.tk/ has a list of servers. Even many not from the US
Those two parties are inside a box. Even the whole govenement system is inside the box. Perhaps people need to start thinking outside the box. If you do that every 200-250 years, you are still way below average.
If the type of governement you have does not work, perhaps the type of governement doesn't work for you and it needs to be changed.
Perhaps a system where the majprity has all the power is not a good enough system as it lays too much importance on the power.
To me politics is not just doing what the one majoority wants, but try to find what the REAL majority wants.
Instead of doing something where it is 50% is happy (e.g one part memmbers) you can get to something where 60% or even 70% is happy. Perhaos not all of your party, but still some of the other party.
Once you are in governement, you should govern ALL the people, not just those from your party
Make your system robust against weak passwords. This is not rocket science
It is for a LOT of situations more complicated then what you believe.
Suere you have the standard measurements you talk about, like pasword hashes not bevoming public.
The problem is that security is a social problem that is being solved by technical solutions. On the social part is also that people are not able to remember 174 logins and seperate passwords and remember the new passwords every month. That 174 is a total ransom number. I am sure if I look at how many websites I have a login and password, that number is easily reached.
So people will look for a way to still be able to reach that website or do their work. They will find easier passwords. Write them down. Use the same login and password for different systems.
A password reminder program is not a solution, as I am not allowed to install programs on my work PC. I will also not have access to it all the time.
Living in Europe with the Euro, so prices are easy to compare. When I visited Munich, I had heard that Munich was an expensive city to live and I thought the beer prices were indeed very high as they were almost double as what I would pay where I live.
That was untill I realized they were also twice as big.
For those interested, I was comparing Hoegaarden and Paulaner Weisdbier. Both Wheat beers
I my language the continent is written as Europa, so my first thought was : "Please don't."
It is stupid naming anyway. Naming a planet after a continent is like naming a continent after a person. Oh. Wait. Nevermind.
Same in Belgium and I would guess the rest of Europe. In Europe the laws tend to lean more towards users and not companies. Also more towards privacy.
Several places I worked have been VERY upfront on what they were doing. Most also worked with whitelists. The majority of people do not need any internet access anyway. Next they place several Internet PCs on several places, so people can look up their facebook during their breaks.
This makes it safer for everybody, although when new staff arrives I tell them that the public PC is not something I would do any banking on, because I have NO idea how safe it realy is and it is THEIR fault if somebody robs their bank by using a public PC.
Also up front explanation that company mail may not be used for personal use. As the Intenetcmputers are available (obviously seperated from the rest of the network. They even have a seperate internet connection.) there is no excuse to do that.
What I hate is companies who focus on people looking at porn. Why is watching 4 minutes of porn worse then 4 hours of BBC news? One giggled perhaps a bit and the other did not work for half a day. To me the second is way worse.
As good as mandatory vacinations would be, there will be people who would make this political. This because it isn't about what is right, but about not letting the other get what they want.
PETA's Secret Slaughter of Kittens, Puppies. Just to let you know that they might not always be what they claim to be.
I am against animal cruelty (mostly because it ruins the taste of the meat) but I am more against hypocracy.
Food, right? Chocelate coins and some variation on apple pie.
Depending on the distro, some things I really need might already be there. So installing or checking if it is installed are the same to me. I often have no idea if it is default or my selection.
The first I will always install or at least check is mc
Espercially for a new install, I think it is easier then using cd, ls and what not as I will be going around a lot and copy files from other places.
vim will be already installed and so will be others, like bash, apt or yast or other software to install.
On the GUI I will always go for XFCE and add the plugins.
I use the NVidea drivers on my 4 screens that run not in xinerama.
Then mplayer and a gui for it. Last in the top of things I will check or install is yad as I have several scripts that depend on it.
I will then copy my scripts and run them one by one to see what is missing.
I was also looking at the ease of use part. How many people do encrypt their email? And I mean because of reason, not because they are geeks.
I am talking about the CEO sending messages that should stay secure.
I think the reason they do not encrypt their email is because it is not implemented in the email client as a standard and doing so is not easy enough.
"But there is XYZ that they ciould use/do." Well, they don't and that is a serious problem.
