During the time when I was a hiring manager, I openly rejected candidates who abused the ratio of quoted messages to new text in their posts.

I thought I would do it before others did. Now you'll be revoking my access here.

Guess my employment prospects are well and truly shot now, too. ;)

I was actually picking on Ladyhawke and her 21:1 quote-to-post ratio on September 6. But if you guys want to mea-culpa yourselves into oblivion, go ahead :)

I see this specific misspelling a lot:

http://bernaerts.dyndns.org/linux/76-gnome/283-gnome-shell-install-extension-command-line-script

Just above '2. Automatic Installation Script', you see this line:

"If you forget it, you will loose your terminal prompt !"

Mind you, there are worse things in the world to unleash upon the world than a terminal prompt. My father's ex-wives, his current one, volcanic activity, American politics, pollen, and crippling arthritis strike me as being worse than terminal prompts to unleash upon an unsuspecting world. But then, I'm a bit more familiar with most command-line driven interfaces than your average person, so I could probably get around in such situations. Loosing a terminal prompt on folks who have never experienced one would likely lead to an extreme lack of productivity.

Heh.  I knew a guy who bought what he thought was an awesome domain name, and was waiting for the day when some gaming or gambling site would offer him a lot of money for it.  He wondered why no one ever approached him about it.

winloose.com

If he registered winlose.com along with winloose.com it would not have been a bad idea, people make that mistake often.

That'd work for a porn site, though.

But here's the cherry on top of this nonportable sundae:  once you
do get it running, do you know how the user interface is built?  It
talks to you through YOUR LOCAL BROWSER.  That's right, kids: it's a
web application.  But no, you aren't allowed to install it once on a
server somewhere and then point to it with any browser.  You have to
install it on your desktop and let it launch a browser.

Here we are three years later and ... hey, it does seem that NetApp finally fixed this :)

Clustered OnTAP 8.x (and 9.x) can be accessed with just a web browser.

But they still don't support any form of single sign on. No LDAP, no TACACS, nothing except local accounts. And when you have storage administrators who guard the array passwords like they're the f***ing crown jewels, this gets frustrating.

Is that the same for the SVMs? I'm trying to figure out, currently, how to grant my Windows admins centralized authentication, via AD/LDAP for share management within the SVMs and not finding anything, so far.

Does anyone actually get 8+ hours out of a laptop? I never even come close to those numbers, even on brand new machines. I can't even get half-way across country on a plane ride and have a laptop last the trip.

Get a much smaller laptop and keep the display on barely readable?


I think I can get 5 hours or so.. But that's pretty much it.
