Things like dropping a laptop from 20 feet up onto concrete because you had more residual lubricant on your gloved hand than you realized happen on occasion
Yeah thanks for that. Fscking TSA... how you accidentally dropped it *up* 20 feet is beyond me though. And geez, ferchrissake change gloves after the cavity search before inspecting my notebook.
But then I remembered how many SUVs there are on the road, and how badly they handle and brake.
WTF? A company I used to work for made us go on a high speed collision avoidance driving course (lot's of fun as it turns out) we had the option of using our own vehicles, so I brought my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Co-workers were shocked. "You'll roll it!!" I said "you watch too much TV" and took it through all the manouvers. Most were shocked at how well it handled, and braked. Yes my current German AWD sedan handles/brakes better, but not much better, the Jeep was great in it's day.
"Then again they actually spent the R&D money to come up with something better. Everyone keeps talking about needing innovations in batteries for Hybrids, Electrics, Laptops, Cell Phones and Apple actually did it."
Really? Apple actually came up with a new or improved battery technology? DO tell. Usually they just buy from Sony et al. And they REALLY get 7 hours? Colour me skeptical.
My personal experience is that Nagios is probably the LEAST easy to use of any piece of software, period.
You've obviously never installed/configured RT3.
I used to use Big Brother, tried Zenoss after reading about it, then tried Nagios. Nagios totally rocks.
It's not THAT hard to configure. We use Nagios, Snort, Ntop and RT3. Hard to say how much money I saved by not using any of the big commercial products, but it's a lot. But RT3, crap, THAT is hard to get going..
Many people write memos to tell you they have nothing to say.
