Netcraft: Microsoft Closing In On Apache Web Server Lead

fak3r Re:But are these SharePoint sites? (102 comments)

New gig, all the docs are in SharePoint, have been for 5 years, and it's impossible to find anything, but if you do it's outdated. No bother, I'm making up new standards and procedure, and it's all written up in Markdown and getting checked into git/gitlab for easy viewing/editing by anyone.

Smart Car Tipping Trending In San Francisco

fak3r Re:Smart Cars = HiTech ??? (371 comments)

fak3r Re:Ummm... (44 comments)

I'm with you, I've built a few networks of VMs, and my latest has an OpenBSD KVM host as the gateway - what is the fear this article is trying to perpetuate? Maybe it's BE AFRAID, BUY MORE NETWORK APPLIANCES!

Gmail Takes Largest Webmail Service Crown

fak3r Re:Own email server (383 comments)

Yes, this is also my reason. Spam was killing me 4 years ago when I still ran my own mailserver, and those addys were 5 years old then, now, I look at my Spam folder every now and then and can't believe the traffic.
