In total, more than 420,000 web and FTP sites were robbed.

Robbed? huh

We really have to come up with a better word to describe digital "theft" that leaves the original unharmed and intact. If someone stole my refrigerator by making an exact copy of it and leaving me with my own copy... would I really care? Would I consider it theft?

We should do a wanted poster for it: It could be an old western cowboy silhouette on a Matrix style background. Have you seen the 3D printed pistol waving binary bandit 10011001? Dial 1-800-NarkBoy to report sightings.

Okay, now that looks incredibly interesting. If I have time this weekend I'll find out how well it runs on IIS ... Because I do have a use for something like this.

Dual boot was fun to play with back in the day, but it eventually ends up being a real hassle when you need to get something from the old OS...when you're already in the middle of something on the new OS.

Few months back when I made the jump to Win8, I just virtualized my old Win7 install so I could keep it handy incase something I forgot to move was needed. Sysinternals Disk2vhd makes doing this as close to idiot proof as anything I've ever seen. I've used it to virtualize dozens of production systems and haven't lost one yet.

Also if you're really paranoid, you can always pull and save the old drive.

And yeah, this stuff is utter nonsense and really needs to be fixed. I've already seen a few new sysadmin hires who wanted to talk about arranging licensing for the entry-level shell script they just wrote - for the client who is paying their wages  - because ad hoc administrative scripting wasn't specifically mentioned in their job description.

I wonder just what blog or irc channel they got that idea from? undecided

And here I thought I was a BOFH...

Oh don't worry, we still are ... That bar isn't to be trifled with....ever. This new breed of self entitled sniveling millennials is just the type that gets sent down an elevator shaft riding a custom high output cattle prod.

I don't know what ring of hell produces people stupid enough to think that they can administer anything from GUI land ... But if they started whinging about doing a little script coding (and yes wanting a license qualifies) in the first 90 days... I'll happily kick them through the door myself.

Great, now the new poster child for IP law really is a monkey with a loaded weapon.

Man, do I ever know the pain of the last panel in that comic.

+1 - I just had a poorly timed interruption cost me 2 hours of putting Humpty-Dumpty's ass back together last week.

Yup! Happens to me from time to time. Usually during a server configuration. 15 second interruption for something stupid. One hour plus getting the big picture back in your head. Then another 30 minutes getting fully back into the zone...

Oh it wasn't so much that the big picture went out of focus. It was more a case of applying it to the wrong target...

Hmm, one way...just divide up the whole drive into multiple partitions, say 10 of them (10% per partition), then run speed tests on each partition until you find the fastest one.

You can only create 4 partitions on a hard drive, unless you switch to (old school) logical drives, or (new school) dynamic disk. DD has performance issues (e.g. overhead) of its own...and I've just never trusted the logical drive thing.

Using /t 0 implies the /f (force) switch for shutdown, that may probably be why it doesn't send the pre-shutdown event to all active applications?

That didn't sound right to me, so I did a shutdown /? and found this.

/t xxx     Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
           The valid range is 0-315360000 (10 years), with a default of 30.
           If the timeout period is greater than 0, the /f parameter is
           implied.

Hold Security warned in a blog post .... Hold Security is telling people not to panic and instead to strategize. It's recommending that users sign up for identity monitoring or identity protection services -- specifically touting its own service that is said to cost roughly $120 per month.

Right! Because nobody can steal you money if you've already wasted it all buying dumb shit ... Like an insurance policy that purports to ensure that you are indeed the real you...just because they say so. Even though they've never actually seen your ass IRL.

@wraith808 and Stoic Joker:
Your suggestions are valid, but I think I get the programmer why he chose this layout. We are in agreement that this interface is not as nice and tidy as it can be, but I find it also a pain in the donkey to continuously select an item from a list, configure it and continue with the next item on the list. Especially when I want to do that for all possible drive options. And keep an overview of what I have set.

Both control options suggested offer multi select which would allow the same work to be done with less clicks. Wraith's is more compact, and mine allows for the birds eye overview of which you speak. Either would be less intimidating for the user than opening with what appears to be a zillion options.
193  DonationCoder.com Software / DC Member Programs and Projects / Re: Drive Policies Management Toolkit BETA on: August 04, 2014, 11:26:35 AM
Just my opinion, but that interface looks a bit too busy for what it does, especially for the Drive Letter policies.  I know I wouldn't use it personally because of that.  Just feedback...

+1 - I was trying to find a tactful way of saying that this morning, but ran out of time.

Maybe a ListView control with an options panel might be nice.

I'm a bit vague about who Kim Kardashian is. I mean, I've heard/seen the name, but have no real idea who/what she is known for

You just answered your own question. She is one of those people who is described as being famous for being famous ... Because they have exactly zero actual accomplishments. Kind of like Paris Hilton, who outside of the infamous video...never did a damn thing worth noticing. Yet she is (or was) in the news constantly for doing what exactly? Nothing. Oh look there is who-gives-a-shit doing who-gives-a-shit again!! ...Quick get a photo!!!

*Sigh*

You actually know who Kim Kardashian is. In an ideal world, you’d be as unaware of her existence as you are of the names of the Chinese kids who made the futurephone or featherweight laptop you’re almost certainly reading this on. In an ideal world, Kim Kardashian would have spent her life getting sport-fucked anonymously by hip-hop stars in some Bel Air mansion, ran a salon, and either died of a coke overdose or Botox poisoning. There is no reason that her face and her life and her tits and her deathless thoughts needed to be foisted upon the world outside of the 90210 ZIP code. Except that somebody figured out that you could make money off showing people the car accident in slow motion, that people would watch that. Sure they will. People love to watch stupid people do stupid things. It makes them feel less stupid.

Reality TV in a nutshell there.

Y'know...if I were in power, I'd probably covertly be encouraging efforts like Bleep and Tor. And the more, the better. It defuses some of the geek outrage - and ties up some very smart and dedicated people (and money) who might otherwise be causing all kinds of problems for me. So let all these brainy types (most of whom will do anything to avoid dealing with an actual person) code to their heart's content. Because in this scenario, the only thing better than my opposition not having a good solution, is having them put their trust in a broken one...

I so hope you are wrong. That's just utterly depressing.

Yet I suspect we both know he's right.


I'm still hopeful and cheering for the cryptoanarchists out there.

As do I ... But a little piece of me died - Part of my inner child that still clings to silly things like 'Hope' - when Anonymous went under.

From my own personal perspective, spam incidence has just jumped up dramatically in the past week or so.

I can confirm that observation as the filter on our Exchange server flashed Tilt like 3 times today.

It strikes me more as what they see as a way to put a partial "unlimited" data plan in place.

Strikes me as a New Speak small step in changing how service terms are to be understood. They're acting like it's an increase in the "Data Plan" implying more bandwidth/traffic/access as we know and understand things now. When it really is a incremental step towards the cable TV provider-esq Social Network and Entertainment Channel Package.

...And all the horrors we've long feared and suspected will manifest true.
