Good ol' Microsoft eh ? Had this happen to me at Work and it took a fair whack of searching to come across this. Well done Greg. :)

I like it.. :P

(With thanks to fark.com...)

Also....

The latest in Penguin bashing.. I have a suspicion that maybe the BSD-Freaks write these things? :P

Well.. now that I have a forum to rant on - i'm going to use it !

Kentucky Fried Chicken, now known universally as KFC - defeats the definition of Fast Food. Sigh!

Had some KFC this afternoon at about 2pm, in Ponsonby. (Wasnt my idea!) Unfortunately this KFC, like the others i've visited from time to time, seemed par for the course:

- Waited in the queue 4 minutes With noone infront of me before ordering something simple - total cost less than $5 (and a drink was at least 1/3 of it).
- When my order was supplied ("Chicken Crisps"... 2 oversized chicken fingers with dipping sauce) - it was missing the sauce!
- When trying to find somewhere to sit, all the tables were dirty.

KFC has some serious issues IMHO, including
- Hygiene levels within the restaurant eating area (if not behind the counter)
- Never enough staff behind the counter
- Speed of service is often terrible.
- Get the order right!

I only have KFC once a month or so at this point - mostly for variety given the disproportionate number of times I eat fastfood over a week - but seem to be dissapointed more often than not. :/

Looks like a legacy site for a Fire Police unit in Pennsylvania, USA. Havn't read all of it yet but what I have looks interesting enough. :)

Ok so this is what happens when staff @ F&P get bored.

Macworld.com News Story - Study shows Mac OS X Server among most secure in world

The article includes the following quote which I think is important:

"the swift adoption of Linux last year within the online government and non-government server community, coupled with inadequate training and knowledge of how to keep that environment secure when running vulnerable third party applications, has contributed to a consistently higher proportion of comprised Linux servers."

So there you go. Its one thing moving to an Open Source environment- its another thing using it securely.

Ok so I found this and wanted to share... its a pretty damn good review of the LiveCD Linux examples, Knoppix being the most famous.

I run a Harddisk-installed version of Knoppix 3.3. These are IMHO the best examples of Linux yet to be produced....

I'm just getting the hang of this system and it seems i'd be better off using Blogs, not Nodes, for - well - blog stuff.

The above is a list of all the road closures in place in the Manawatu area at the moment, due to flooding and so on. NZ's in the midst of the worst flooding its had in 100 years, with the bill already running into in excess of NZ$100 Million.
