Zeromous Re:Could have fooled me (203 comments)

That's funny, they pretty much won those majorities with Liberal outposts in every major province except Alberta- despite a bloc minorities/majority of seats in Quebec.

In ontario and Nova scotia there is full day kindergarten for 4 and up, which is basically stealth free day-care.

Brian Stevens Resigns As Red Hat CTO

Zeromous RHEL7 related? (38 comments)

Did he greenlight the Anaconda UI changes in RHEL7, because that trash makes Microsoft look like UI whizzes.

How Red Hat Can Recapture Developer Interest

Zeromous Re:Docker & RedHat's Software Collections (231 comments)

Docker is indeed a godsend to developers and the admins that coddle them. Especially on distributions like RHEL and Debian. It may even allow me to skip this whole RHEL7 debacle but time will tell.

How Red Hat Can Recapture Developer Interest

Zeromous Re:IT departments, on the other hand... (231 comments)

I'm with you but debian is rock solid. I hate ubuntu but find working debian to be sweet sweet stability. Unfortunately it almost never handles the latest new new that developers wantwant.

I deliver them to a VM i run just for this purpose, with the background of goatse.cx

I then tell them it's not so much the infection as it is the distention.

I think you underestimate just how much of your world still runs on PowerPC.

IBM Gearing Up Mega Power 8 Servers For October Launch

Zeromous Re:That ship has already sailed. (112 comments)

Abomination is right. All the new kids and their systemd, reinventing that which was not broken (and was still portable!)

Try doing an non-kickstart installation to see the abomination in all of its glory. Whoever does the UI at redhat should be shot out of a cannon, sufficiently that they land somewhere around the Canonical offices. I've never seen a more disjointed, confusing clusterfuck in my life, and I've used Solaris 7, Windows 8, and Suse 9

Cause of Global Warming 'Hiatus' Found Deep In the Atlantic

Zeromous Re:Every week there's a new explanation of the hia (443 comments)

I don't know, I tend to support whatever leads us to a more efficient use of our hydrocarbon resources as a society. I look at this as the greatest economic opportunity of our times, as it's pretty clear to me, the remaining hydrocarbons yet to be extracted would be far more beneficial to society as a strategic fuel source, and source of polymers, rather than literally burning it 'up in smoke' out of our tailpipes.

The Quiet Before the Next IT Revolution

Zeromous Re:If you didn't know what you were doing ... (145 comments)

> There is another trend of third parties marketing infrastructure solutions to high level management, skipping local subject matter experts.

Trend? I thought this was SOP for sales, because SMEs kill sales. This has been known by Salesmen and SMEs since time immemorial.

Password Gropers Hit Peak Stupid, Take the Spamtrap Bait

Zeromous Re:How fucking stupid are you (100 comments)

Mister44, it doesn't matter if it's for mail or for passwords, the result is the same. It is using hacker's automation to automate blacklists. Parent is not wrong, just misstated.

DARPA Wants To Kill the Password

Zeromous Re:The problem is false negative (383 comments)

>Yes, we've all seen dozens of those science fiction stories where they steal people's eyes, or cut off their fingers, or take swabs of their DNA.

Well obviously it's time to two-factor that shit. We'll need a random series of characters meeting certain criteria, and we're good to go!
