So this book was written to educate fanboys about their bad habits? I don't need another book on security that assumes I'm an irresponsible, apathetic, zealot. Your apparent attitude has just unsold this book for me.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
No kidding. Let's wait 'till they REALLY start oppressing us before we start taking any of it seriously. Obviously he hasn't read 1984... once it's too late, it's too late. 2+2=
...if you get audited and delete it all without remorse.
If your management won't support you on this you need to find another job.
Well... I was going to ask why anyone would want to go into I.T. as a career change when it's the most underappreciated, disrespected field you're going to find but you guys illustrated that pretty well.
I guess if you like being treated like a janitor while having the fate of the company's operation put on your shoulders and listening to everyone's complaints then go for it.
BTW: One of my programming projects as an I.T. guy was to write an interface that sychronized an HP mainfram order entry system with a novell based MRP system... both of which I helped build.
So no, I.T. is not (just) programming.
Seems like a bad idea.
Apple had to be bailed out by Microsoft so they didn't disappear from the face of the earth. They are hardly a good example of doing things right.
Just as Newtonian or Eistienian physics don't refer only to their work but the paradigm their work created.
A stupid argument doesn't need further stupidity to resole it.
We've already paid for this!
Time to turn the telcos into public utilities.
I have to wonder if the auto-updaters that every piece of software seems to install these days will count as applications.
It would be really cool to know that my machine can't do anything but make sure Java, Acrobat and Quicktime are up to date.
Apples to Rocks?
Copyright infringment vs Constitutional violations of millions of people... both are crimes... one is a bit more serious than the other.
It's terribly amusing that AT&T is going to be involved in trying to stop people from doing something illegal.
Will I get the same punishment they did?
Can I assume it will be available through bit-torrent?
The Linux TCP/IP stack is more effecient than the XP stack.
The problem is, as I've been flamed for before, Linux is still nowhere near the point where a non-techie will consider adopting it.
No... the problem is if you're too stupid to read Dells' website that tells you EXACTLY what OS will be shipping on the machine you just ordered you're too stupid to use a computer no matter what OS is on it.
"Oh... I can save another $300 on this machine and I don't know what that is so I probably don't need it."
Ah... the future of America.
Yep... I predicted it more than a year before the product was available. Seems like it should be grounds for a great big "Bait & Switch/false advertising" class action lawsuit to me.
