Comment: Re:Yes MS has lost and is now nice (Score 1) 421 421

I have to say it: I've been running Win7 Pro in a VM for 3 years now and it is, indeed, a stable desktop. I wish MS (Ballmer, prick) didn't screw it up and leave it behind. Our POS requires a Windows backend and Win7 is fine.

Running on a Debian host, of course. Still, not a bad desktop OS at all.

It gives you plenty of information and tool descriptions to test your own setups as you put them together. This, to me, was always the hardest part. Building LibreSSL fro source for the hell of it is also useful if for no other reason than getting the updated man pages. Just sayin'.

This book + wireshark = very, very informative, esp. if your background is in hardware design and not networking...

Comment: Removing gluten in the mash? (Score 2) 46 46

"(There are now innovations in the mashing process that can remove most of the gluten from a full barley grain bill, so it's no longer necessary to resort to sorghum!)"

As a professional brewer this is news to me. I would love to see this point expanded upon.

+ - Offering wi-fi access as a small business

motorsabbath writes: We are opening a small business in a downtown area. Metropolitan wi-fi locally ran out of funding and ended. We are considering offering wi-fi access to our customers. If someone commits an "internet nasty" while using our wi-fi, where does the liability lie? No lawyer we ask has any idea. Our ISP has no idea. Anyone here offering wi-fi to customers as a small business? Does one have to use some sort of paywall with a disclaimer to get around legal liability? For the record, these disclaimers never hold up in court....

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
