  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    But AD is just an embrace-and-extend version of Kerberos, isn't it? Of LDAP, actually, with Kerberos sprinkled generously all over it. Or the other way around, depending on your POV. Re. interoperability: yes. I've built Thin Clients for hospitals myself...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    While the issue of the $$$ medical equipment with Windows XP is very serious, it's also relatively easy to resolve - or at least improve. For example, each one could be put on a private network with extremely tight ingress...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    But saying "our machine runs Windows!!" has become a marketing point as much as anything else. To be fair, this is not because of the UI (or not just). Having worked for hospitals in the past, the main point...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    I'm defining "summer" as "it's too warm for my liking", roughly June-September, for this. TNS, by OGH, obviously. Diane Duane, the Young Wizards series; fluffy YA fantasy, perfect for the commute and for "a couple pages before I turn off...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Name: SSD Classificatioin: SIEM (Secure, Intelligent, Effective Measure) Deployment: Using a SOC Summoning Device (SSD) by plugging it into a standard mains socket (110V/50Hz, DO NOT ATTEMPT to use 230V) will attempt to summon enough suitable personnel to form a...
  • Commented on The morning after
    I do think the EU has helped in preventing another war in Europe. Or at least the spreading of one, to be a tad more exact. Think of ex-Yugoslavia. Those of us living in neighbouring countries certainly do - and...
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    As seems to become usual, amazon.de doesn't hold with release dates - they shipped out my copy on June 23rd (arrived on the 25th). They do block Kindle editions until July 3rd, though....
  • Commented on The regular holy war ...
    KDE 4.x ... I couldn't even figure out how to find and launch applications That was my experience with Unity, and also that of my SO (who is Not A Computer Person)....
  • Commented on The regular holy war ...
    As someone who's using Enlightenment for well over a decade now ... Enlightenment has one thing going for it - everything is configurable (the opposite of the Gnome3 doctrine). Which means you can go, tailor it to your needs and...
  • Commented on Why Microsoft Word must Die
    This rant could've been written by my father, who works as something between a proofreader, fact-checker and layouter. Back in the day, if you wanted random stuff to look presentable, and editable for your proofreader and layout-folks, you'd use PageMaker...
  • Commented on Rinse, Drain, Spin ... more Laundry!

  • Commented on The jet lag game
    Cattle-class seating, well, it plays merry hell with blood circulation for me, so everytime I fall asleep it's only to wake in full-on adrenalin-pumping emergency mode 5-10 minutes later because some body part's not working. I'd love a law mandating...
  • Commented on The ticking clock, stopped
    Hell yes, I'd take it. Or I'd wait a couple years for near-term side-effects to show up, just to be on the safe side, and then take it (just as I do with laser eye-surgery). 1-5% of my net income...
