Netflix Will Delay Renting New WB Releases

methangel Re:28 days later (418 comments)

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

Best FOSS Active Directory Alternative?

methangel Re:Active Directory is Microsoft's best work (409 comments)

Ok, I call bullshit. I want you to show me one example of a FOSS implementation that lets you convert to Active Directory after the fact.

Best FOSS Active Directory Alternative?

methangel Re:There isn't an alternative. Next question. (409 comments)

Amen. Amen. AMEN. Amen. I was reading through this thread wondering why in the HECK someone would want to subject themselves to this level of pain. Fact of the matter is, none of the "directory replacements" are even going to begin to touch on the level of quality, support, integration, and ease of use that you'd find with a 2003/2008 Active Directory implementation.

I mean, really, don't do it.
