Our company web log, web site, shopping site and forum get hit by
varying degrees with SPAM bots, or in some cases possibly paid SPAM
shills, signing up for accounts, posting "comments" and sending
"track-backs" that aren't. Constant administration oversight is needed
to keep these cleaned up, which is one reason why all comments and
track-backs here at The ERACC Web Log are moderated. We see the SPAM
so you don't have to. I also see the occasional SPAM in my

in all these locations, nothing completely stops these annoying
SPAM-ing jerks. Invariably, when I trace back the IP addresses of
these SPAM attempts with nmap and check the running OS I see something

Of course he is frustrated.
He's a Unix guy who is probably using Linux.

That alone would cause intense frustration.

   Yes, all the Microsoft "guru" types out there are gnashing teeth and
   insisting Microsoft operating systems can be secured. Yup, I agree. But
   not by the technically clueless who are coddled by intellect smothering
   GUI love, which means the majority of Microsoft users.

   Too many Microsoft users have been taught the attitude, "I don't want to
   have to learn something 'hard', I just want this thing to work." when
   talking about computer systems.

If you don't know the materials you're working with, and the tools you are
using, you are fooked.

I agree. Now make sure 7 understands this basic concept as he is the one 
taking almost 2 hours to do something that is easily done in 5 minutes.

In his OS of choice, no less.

in addition, his utter ignorance of "other" tools of the trade, 
underscored by his inability to even spell "windows" correctly, means he 
is royally "fooked" (whatever that means) and happily misleading his 
employer as to what tool may be best for the job at hand while happily 
milking the company of those 250€/hr his 200-IQ commands... ;)

If you want to keep homer around and chiming in with his "Amen!  Brother 
Hardon!" chants, you better hide this post.  If he ever actually goes to the 
source and reads about the circle-jerk the IT weenies have going there, he 
will be out of action for a week.

Microsoft Windows =?windows-1251?b?lg==?= Promoting Mediocrity Since 1985 #2
http://blog.eracc.com/2011/04/26/microsoft-windows-promoting-mediocrity- since-1985/ http://goo.gl/MOlyD <quotes> Too many Microsoft users have been taught the attitude, "I don't want to have to learn something 'hard', I just want this thing to work." when talking about computer systems. Unfortunately, since Microsoft systems always use a brain atrophying GUI for Every Freaking Thing, the ignorant users are usually not taught how to think for themselves. So these people rarely know the hows and whys of network security or how to parse and solve network problems with their own brain. The GUI keeps these poor people ignorant. If "it" is not in a GUI, "it" is not possible or even knowable as far as many of these folks are concerned. Further, when basic design decisions are made that start off without any thought of security for this same operating system you get an operating system that is easy to suborn, regardless of the endless Microsoft Patch Tuesdays. Add to this heinous equation all the clueless Microsoft users and Microsoft "administrators" clicking their way to GUI Nirvana to realize a world-wide network nightmare called Microsoft Bot-nets, Microsoft SPAM relays and other Microsoft related malware spewing sewers. Here have some Microsoft based SPAM, or a Microsoft based DOS attack. Isn't mediocrity just Totally Sweet? When a company promotes ease of use mediocrity over security for its ...

Microsoft Surface Touch keyboards self-destruct =?windows-1251?b?lg==?= and more
<http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/09/microsoft_surface_problems_surface/> <quote> It appears that your brand-spanking-new Microsoft Surface may need more than the security patch The Reg told you about – you may also need a physical patch for its Touch Cover keyboard. According to multiple posts on Microsoft's Surface Forum, the edge of Surface Touch keyboards can split open at the seam where the keyboard-cover magnetically attaches to the tablet unit, exposing wiring within. As one Forum poster notes, "my touch cover, in the middle at the join to the screen is peeling. like the top layer has come loose and is ruffling up." Another writes, "Mine, too. Right in the middle on the seam it tore open, and pretty quickly too." Another: "I had the same issue with the Surface touch cover I bought for my wife and exchanged the cover for a replacement at my Microsoft store (extremely simple and quick process). However, within 24 hours it was peeling back again at the same place." And so on. The splitting keyboard is not the only problem being reported. One support forum thread is devoted to users who have experienced audio muting. "Glad I found this thread," one poster posts. "I've had the problem happen about 10 times and it's all on different occasions." </quote> -- A stupid man's report of what a clever man says is never accurate because he unconsciously transl...

[News] Microsoft Puts the =?UTF-8?B?4oCcQ2FuY2Vy4oCd?= Insider Linux, to Promote Windows
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 “Donating” Code ,----[ Quote ] | So, if my reasoning is correct, and I am very happy to be corrected, this is | what seems to be the order of events: | | 1. MS want Linux to run on its Hyper-V platform | | 2. They develop and release drivers that use some GPL code and link to static | GPL binaries. I don’t know where that original GPL code came from but it sure | would be interesting to find out. | | 3. These drivers are in breach of the GPL and a third party notices | | 4. MS are forced, nicely, to comply with the GPL, just like every other | organisation whose GPL breaches have been seriously challenged. | | So, whilst this is all good and marvallous, especially if you want to run | Linux on Windows, keep this other factlet in mind. Microsoft has shaken money | out of at least 500 organisations including Linux distributers, claiming IP | rights over code they have not written because of patents they refuse to | identify in public. | | This is an interesting story, but not in the way it is being told. Celebrate | because we can chalk it up as a success…to the GPL. `---- http://passthesource.org.nz/2009/07/22/donating-code/ "Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches."                                 --Steve Ballmer, Microsoft CEO Microsoft contributes to Li...

Linux in 2013: 'Freakishly awesome' =?windows-1251?b?lg==?= and who needs a fork?
<http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/17/state_of_linux_2013/> <quote> LCS2013 If there was a theme for Day One of the Linux Foundation's seventh annual Linux Collaboration Summit, taking place this week in San Francisco, it was that the Linux community has moved way, way past wondering whether the open source OS will be successful and competitive. "Today I wanted to talk about the state of Linux," Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, began his opening keynote on Monday. "I'm just going to save everybody 30 minutes. The state of Linux is freakishly awesome." Zemlin said that each day some 10,519 lines of code are added to the Linux kernel, while another 6,782 lines are subtracted from it. All told, the kernel averages around 7.38 changes per hour – a phenomenal rate for any code base. Zemlin went on to liken Linux to a multi-million dollar R&D project, on which over 400 companies collaborate – some of which, at the same time, are fierce competitors. </quote> -- No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says; he is always convinced that it says what he means. -George Bernard Shaw Crabbit Bampot <crabbit.bampot@gmail.com> wrote: > <http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/17/state_of_linux_2013/> > <quote> > LCS2013 If there was a theme for Day One of the Linux Foundation's > seventh annual Linux Collaboration Summit, taking place t...

Five Reasons to be excited about Linux Mint 13 =?windows-1251?b?lg==?= LTS, MATE, and more
<http://www.linuxuser.co.uk/features/five-reasons-to-be-excited-about-linux-mint-13-lts-mate-and-more/> <quote> The next version of Linux Mint will be with us soon, find out why 13 is going to be the lucky number for the worlds most popular Linux distribution Last week the release candidate for Linux Mint 13 was made available, code named Maya. Based on the recent release of Ubuntu 12.04, Linux Mint 13 takes the core of Precise Pangolin and adds it’s own branding and desktop environments on top of it. It’s these additions, and more, that go towards making Linux Mint so great – and here are five fantastic reasons to look out for the next version of Linux Mint. </quote> -- Christianity did not come with tidings of great joy, but with a message of eternal grief. It came with the threat of everlasting torture on its lips. It meant war on earth and perdition hereafter -Robert G.
