Illinois Students Suspected of Cyberbullying Must Provide Social Media Passwords

Jharish If I were a kid in that school district... (320 comments)

...I'd change my password to 'the-principle-fucked-me-in-the-ass-and-told-me-he-would-kill-my-parents-if-I-told-anyone-so-I-write-about-it-here' before engaging in any cyber bullying.

After Silk Road 2.0 Shutdown, Rival Dark Net Markets Grow Quickly

Jharish News=Where to find drugs (86 comments)

I really enjoy the fact that the 'news' tells us where to go to buy our drugs now that Silk Road is down again. And reading the comments told me which top competitors to look for as well. Thanks 'the news'. And thanks Slashdot. Thanks to you I no longer have to face the world sober.

Microsoft Tip Leads To Child Porn Arrest In Pennsylvania

Jharish I hate when they go for the lowest hanging fruit (353 comments)

The big deal here is that we've blown the crime of child porn out of proportion. Thanks to American minimum sentencing laws, anyone caught LOOKING at child porn will be put away for longer than if they murdered the child. You'd have to murder multiple people to get put away longer than someone who is caught MAKING child porn.

Also, open note to Google, MS and everyone else thinking they can get press on this. Please IMPRESS me by showing off something way more drastic like stopping a gang murder or preventing a terrorist attack. Those guys are violent and hard to go after and tend to like vengeance which makes it much more impressive than snagging some nerdy child porn consumer.

Also, as someone who was subjected to the kinds of child abuse these films portray, being molested as a child hasn't destroyed my life or caused deep damage. I'm extremely happy with how things turned out and the only thing is that I'm a bit more kinky than average because I have 10-15 more years of sexual experience than most people thanks to getting started around the age of 3.

In no way am I advocating it, but we should seriously consider why we think murder isn't as important as possessing child porn?

Snowden: NSA Spied On Human Rights Workers

Jharish Fantasy Analysis (230 comments)

One of the tools of the psychohistory discipline is a 'fantasy analysis' where you take out positive and negative adjectives and simply rely on verbs and nouns to reveal the thoughscape of the writer/speaker.

When someone says 'We're not going to war, we are not killing women and children' it means that they are actually thinking about war and killing women and children.

When I see 'We're not making up Nightmare Scenarios' I get REALLY scared because now I think the NSA also has a list of every type of minority and a scenario to eliminate them.

Author Says It's Time To Stop Glorifying Hackers

Jharish Victim Response (479 comments)

Hacker says it's time to stop listening to authors. Especially if they think hacker=computer criminal. It's got as much integrity as saying white people=bankers.

Apple Urges Arizona Governor To Veto Anti-Gay Legislation

Jharish Hate is not a religious freedom worth protecting (917 comments)

I'm all for religious freedom, but institutionalizing the hatred of religious zealots who tend to ruin religion for everyone else seems a very inhuman thing to do.

Next they can pass laws saying that religious freedom can also include suicide bombing.

EV Owner Arrested Over 5 Cents Worth of Electricity From School's Outlet

Jharish This sounds racist (1010 comments)

I bet if the "suspect" was named "John Smith" and white he might not have been arrested.

I'm surprised that didn't make it into the summary.

Internet.org: Altruistic, Or the Ultimate In Cynicism?

Jharish Re:For once Bill Gates is right (174 comments)

I've never really 'liked' Bill Gates, but I have admired the fact that he's a tycoon who got to where he is by not exploiting third world non-white people as most other billionaires do.

If you think about it, the 'shady but successful business practices' really only screwed other rich white people and didn't enslave entire third world countries and rape their resources like most other non-tech billionaires. For that, I see BG as an evolutionary step forward in the ecosystem of greedy business men.

Amazon Censorship Expands

Jharish Boycott? (764 comments)

I've been attempting to boycott Amazon for stuff like this but I simply can't help myself over how convenient it's become not to have to spend several hours a week shopping. I would seriously like to have input into their decisions and would like alternatives to use that are better than Amazon in terms on not censoring and offering such a wide selection of stuff available for free delivery.

Server Room and Data Center Inventory?

Jharish Jharish writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Jharish (101858) writes "Ask Slashdot: I've been managing server rooms and data centers for over a decade now and I've been finding that I'm unable to find one good "app to bind them all" so I'm curious what Slashdot readers do for inventory control, resource management and so forth. Essentially, I've been keeping spreadsheets as well as using Cacti and/or Zabbix to monitor. But what I'm looking for is something that sort of rolls together everything. I have monitoring, inventory control and the ability to generate quick reports like how many outages per machine or how many support tickets per machine. I'd even like to be able to pull up a monitor to show me how many VMs are running on any host and for how long. None of the monitoring OSS projects seem to be able to do that that I know of. (Maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing) How do others manage their server resources?"
