They can sound hurt all they want that OpenDNS and Cisco and Microsoft wrote public blogs or took action rather than reporting the individual offenders to No-IP first.
Really? What about all their legitimate customers? Just "collateral damage", all worth the cost? Most of their customers use their free services, they only have a staff of *12* people. Of COURSE they want help getting reports of abuse. And the *DO* respond to those quickly and appropriately.
What Microsoft did was unconscionable. It's like some vigilantes wanted to put an end to shootings in South Side Chicago, but instead of reporting all the shooters to police, they just decided to set off a nuke in the area and wipe out everybody. Problem solved, right?
TFA calls NO-IP shady. ITworld aren't journalists either, apparently.
The whole summary reads like propaganda.
And, of course, along with being the big, bad, good-guy cop, some "alleged" that their business was disrupted. Poor old Microsoft is "weary" of its role.
What's with all the services hiding under svchost.exe anyways?
They're not hiding.
Sorry to dispel your ignorance.
If I didn't know better, I might ask what's with all those daemons hiding behind xinetd? But I do know better.
'grep' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
A while back, a friend of mine went to the doctor complaining of fatigue. He was just constantly tired and unsure why. They checked him into the hospital for tests, and shortly declared he had Leukemia and needed to start chemotherapy right away. After several weeks, including a long stay in the ICU, the doctors declared the treatment a "success". He remained in the ICU and died yesterday.
Fucking quacks "practicing" medicine and performing "treatments" that have a proven low survival rate - but, hey, everybody including the pharmaceutical companies are raking in the money, so it's all good. Except for my friend, who would have lived longer and had less pain than he did under their "treatment".
Fuck them. Stop it with the myopic single diagnosis / single treatment crap. People are NOT petri dishes.
Who says that the free stuff "utopia" is not the terrible future.
The term you are looking for is "distopia". See: 1984, Animal Farm, Hunger Games, Brave New World, and Agenda 21, for starters.
Soon the market for US based programmers will be flooded by a new wave of corporate-sponsored graduates fresh and ready to be burned out, thus driving programmer wages down to "competitive" levels.
But not elsewhere. So why in the wide wide world of sports would they hire American's? It just doesn't make any sense. It is not life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, and a guaranteed 6 figure income. That is not how any of this works.
How come all the shills in this thread defending hiring 3rd world workers for 1st world company jobs are all Anonymous Cowards? Are they all Social Media Strategists for ManPower and Infosys? Just asking.
It probably will not go over well in this venue, but I just don't see how people can get so worked up at companies for doing what's in the company's best interests
Well part of the issue is that often times it is clearly not in the company's best interest - certainly not in the long term, and even more often not if the company relies on any decent level of customer satisfaction to survive and compete.
There's a reason they don't want to hire American's, and it's because they cost too much. The fact that people in other countries are lining up to do the same work for cheap is concrete proof that it isn't as difficult work as you think.
And yet, clearly, they are NOT doing the same work. Sure, they're lining up - with worthless 3rd world degrees handed out from a corrupt system and paper qualifications that make them appear qualified while they can't figure out how to poor piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel.
Recent labor statistics show that productivity in the US has dropped significantly in the last few years. Want to know why? American workers replaced with cheap labor. It's been happening for more than 5 years, but the results are now starting to be felt in the labor market as a whole.
There is no getting around the fact that you can find skilled workers from anywhere, and you will find paper-qualified workers that are incompetent boobs from anywhere, but I've been in IT for a long time, and the fact is, if you want decent skills, you have to pay for it. Period.
While it is true that businesses create job descriptions specifically designed to eliminate American workers, it is *also* true that plenty of American IT workers think they are super-awesome and really aren't.
Yes, I've seen lots of these folks. It's not just "American IT workers", though, this phenomenon knows no nationality bounds.
...what does that make beavers?
A dam nuisance.
What gives whales the right to alter the environment? Whales should be regulated so their engineering impact to the oceans can be controlled.
I am shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, that there are absolutely NO federal regulations on whale activities. Next they'll be deregulating the growing of vegetables!
There is something else that makes connector contacts less than desirable for maximum reliability, I don't remember what that is.
