No, I have not read the article. However, keep in mind, employees to Amazon are like potentially expanding or reducing your networking on a "cloud" system, they need them now, they lay them off later. Boeing has been doing this with worker bees for 20 years. Here today, gone tomorrow . A job at Amazon is no better than a job in a lonesome boiler-room call center. Oh, it's a job, it's job for sure, and people need jobs. But since we became a "consumer society" (that's a society that does nothing but consume), we better get used to "being the product", and being Jeff Bezo's nigger. And dropping fry baskets.
The current method of remaking everything with ethnically diverse cast members is boring...
But the next Batman will be an African American from the "hood"... And they're going to bring back Robin, Justin Bieber is slated to fill that role. It'll be a BLOCKBUSTER!!!
Having no windows makes this story as relevant for me as the UAE story today.
Indeed. I "disabled" Windows a few years ago. Being an old foggie, I went for RHEL, but it works for me.
Perhaps we should require spotlights and mandatory cameras over every square inch of the planet too?
Don't the Brits already do that? CCTV on every corner with car tag readers? You folks don't think MI-5 is not harvesting oll of this stuff in real time and tracking cars and people?
Making decent movies with talented actors that look really good on the big screen instead of computer generated pap might be a start to getting folks back into theaters. That and maybe an experience that doesn't set a family back $150.
How is Adam Sandler still making movies? How many times do we need to see Eddy Murphy in a fat suite? How many times will Pixar put out a computer generated fish film or some studio regurgitating a comic book through a stack of Silicon Graphics machines?
When I was growing up we as a family would see a film every week or maybe two weeks. But we didn't have to take out a mortgage to do so. I'm just not paying theater prices to see sketchy Hollywood pap on a screen only a little bigger than one I can buy at Costco.
1. Think of a very memorable event in your life.
2. Come up with a password based on that event.
3. Make it follow convention. (e.g. capitals, letters, length, etc)
4. Make it able to be changed easily without changing the event.
Example: My dog Daisy died in 1998
Remember that through 20 permutations associated with 20 random user accounts.
Like I said, I write them down and secure them. No "hacker" is going to break into my office and pry open my desk. And if they do? They can have 'em, not that important, they would find out how to hack in anyway.
Hopefully, they don't use the same one for their DoD job and Slashdot.
My DoD CAC pin is 123456. My Slashdot pass is a little more secure.
Most jobs that I had only required a single password.
You are the exception. Many jobs require indevidual logins to many systems. I've had as many as 25, though right now it's 10. Yes, I write them down.
The notorious group gained access to Seattle-based writer Devin Coldewey's account, and posted the following message earlier today: "Hello Guys, don't worry we are just testing techcrunch security, we didn't change any passwords, please contact us...
So they fished a single user's account and by the way, "contact us"? Yeah, no . Coldewey, if he actually has any other access than to submit stories for editorial review (you know, like I do at Slashdot), needs to have his account douched, but beyond that, this is most likely just some "leet" little boys playing on the 'puter.
If it turns out to be something more than almost nothing, I would be surprised.
As an IT support technician, I had to prevent people from telling me their passwords. It never fails that find someone's password written on a Post-It note on their monitor or underneath their keyboard. Whenever a user compromises their password, I set their AD account to change password on next login
So, when you are talking to a non-IT / non-IT savvy network user who has to "remember" 20 (and that's not a high number for some folks) different UID/PAS combos, what exactly is your suggestion beyond writing it down and securing the written source?
This is an honest question that should not be poo-pooed by the "leet IT Dudes" as the fallout of moron netwrok users...
Let me guess, majored in Medevil History?
No, it's where you learn to be a spelling Nazi and a pedant.
When you are unable to afford food, housing, and defaulting on your student loans you quite likely will reconsider this stance.

...The local government feared that if news outlets were to report using signals coming from social media, there was a chance that fake, non-credible, and rumors would slip through the filter. It was absurd, to say the least...
Was it? Not trying to support censorship of any kind, especially the kind that China practices, but "social media" is well known to spew "fake, non-credible, rumors..."
Hahhaaaa... You took the Anon Troll bait!
