Comment Re:Sensationalist fearmongering and attention whor (Score 1) 164

Sorry, but I totally agree with the original post. The title is "Ubuntu 0day world of hurt". The reality is "Ubuntu12.04, no privilege escalation". That is not a serious issue, and even the author acknowledges it, so please hush big boy.

The main users of ubuntu 12.04 are mostly servers (so not likely to be affected) and the EOL is near anyway.

Comment Re:Only Fixed by Resigning (Score 1) 410

I'm actually happy to see people learn from their errors. I would trust him much more than anyone else. He recognized what he did, he recognized his error. He knows he'll have no other chance now.

On the other hand, I'm sad to see every other guy call for resignation every time someone makes a mistake. It is actually the opposite : someone who did a mistake and suffered from it will never make it again. So that guy is now better and smarter ... why should he resign ?

Comment Re:It's OVH (Score 1) 103

I'm surprised to read that. Are you sure it is OVH ? I would expect many providers to suck at understanding such problems, but OVH tends to be on the very competent side, so if that is true, I would wait for OVH version of the problem before drawing a conclusion on who's wrong.
