Windows NT Server Admin: taught by morons, for morons.
And that's all I have to say 'bout that.
I swear... I used to like the NT line. I really did. Until I entered this class, and observed how it seems to promote stupidity. All these prof's teach are the simplest, most terrible ways of doing things. Security!? NAAW! Surely Microsoft has thought of that for us!
Just shoot me. Please. Really. Somebody shoot me.
I have to get back to class now... we're installing 2k Server. Yippee! (as if a band of roving chimps couldn't manage this)
Ok.. so I've had this
So I'm sitting here... in lab.. with a migrane.. watching a professor try to describe the bootstrap process to the largest group of lusers I've ever witnessed in one location. I'm sitting here, and playing with the backdoors on this 2k box. Ok now... I'll admit.. I actually like Windows 2000. Well... I at least like it for a workstation. But what kinds of morons put an admin account on a system named 'backdoor' and then gives it a password 'backdoor'? And, to make it even more fun.. it isn't a local account. It's a domain-wide account. So I've got access to all these boxen, and I'm pondering how many others have it, too? Who knows... I don't really care what worm infects this network. My point is: I've finally come to accept the truth. Windows really does help breed stupidity. It took me a while to get here... but once the conclusion was made, it can't be unmade.
Well, I've got to go... they're going to show us how to log in to these computers now. After all, it's a 400-level class and it's the third week of the s'mester! We're a week behind here!! (sarcasm very much intended)
ps. I wonder if anyone would notice if replaced Win2k with FreeBSD.
