    The temptation to edit it down to 2999 is strong...

    The timeout is 15mins, no persistence or refresh. This was knocked together in 3~ hours or so and I am now away from home so can't update it #sorry.. Just answer quickly or note your answers

    I thought this was going to be a car rental joke.. disappointing..

    Looks like it was deleted - he found the server in the end though so happy end to the story...

    We cannot give you any help with this as it's not our server..

    I think you have already said in the chat that this was a "death-inc" clan server.. so I would suggest you appeal to them not us.

    I have been using Win 11 since insider beta and haven't had any major issues - have now pushed out to my work/personal devices. No major changes to usability for me. Have got an annoying Intune issue where the device is partially enrolled.

    Are we using the same definition of 'censor'? I for one will never be part of a community that does not censor threats against people or content such as racism, child abuse, physical harm, personal safety, terrorism and many many others. Go to the dark web if you don't want censorship. But alas, this diverges us from the original topic which is around censorship of questionable or objectionable material is it not? it is not a straightforward topic to be driven by a set of predetermined rules and is by nature subjective.

    Nope not a politician Yes being in XI has been on my resume (curriculum vitae over here) - it has surprisingly helped me accelerate my career. But, check above - I posted twice. Once with a longer 'non-politician' response.
  16. Sitting-Duc

    Just to clarify. Yes - part of the moderation of this forum is censorship. We censor certain topics to sections of the forum e.g. politics/nudity. We censor illegal content (yes it gets posted). We censor inflammatory and racist remarks. To think we do not censor is not correct. You can of course disagree with me saying that I believe in "some aspect of" freedom of speech - comical but go for it. Yes I am at fault - my actions are mine. You forget that this community has been built upon the personal feelings and beliefs of many members including my own. And that is how many communities are made and torn down by the alignment and misalignment of those beliefs with others. I am happy where I live thanks The mistake that I consider I have made is posting on the topic after locking, what I said didn't need to be said. I don't believe it was a mistake to lock it though. I have made many worse mistakes in this community.

    I wrote out several responses to this post, but deleted most. It's hard to answer some of your questions but I will try and be honest. I felt free to lock your thread on the technicality that people had got to the point of 'personal attacks' and multiple 'reports'. Personally I would have liked to delete it - but ya know.. I do believe in some aspect of "freedom of speech". You wonder why I let the 'Mandated' one go? I hadn't read it until 12/10 12:30 my time when Rugger asked our thoughts on it. At that point my response was it was utter bullshit, the thread and content annoys me and some other expletives. However it was not yet a "real problem" so suggested leave as is. I have not read it since as I know the content will annoy me. So yes that is 'why' I have let it go, other seniors are aware and can step in when they feel the time is right. I also see people in the forums saying stupid shit and think very much differently about them. It's fair to not visit the forums, sad but makes sense. I also haven't been visiting the forums as much as I used to due to these types of topics. Anyway - hope that helps you understand. You probably won't agree and will find fault. But that's life - full of fault.

    I am so confused by this thread and the content.
  20. Sitting-Duc

    FYI it does seem like they have messed up their BGP routing - they host their own DNS etc. and having messed that up they essentially 'withdrew' from the internet. https://web.archive.org/web/20210626191032/https://engineering.fb.com/2021/05/13/data-center-engineering/bgp/ That article (access through web archive as live is obviously down) details a bit into how they are managing it. But if they have pushed a bad update then I imagine they lost access to the development/engineering tools to rollback. On top of that if you imagine most corporate structures use VPNs for remote working which are under their DNS and many other internal and external tools that is likely impeding the resolution simply due to access issues. How does one authenticate against a domain if it does not resolve? Fascinating problem that they are experiencing and I'm intrigued to see if we get details of the root cause and resolution. I wouldn't be surprised if there are people attempting to breakdown access controlled doors as we speak or manual patching of configs in data centres.

    or ya know.. someone just broke their DNS?... A $500+ billion company doesn't purposefully take down all their services like this to 'scrub the evidence' - they hire a hitman or pay people off...
  22. Interesting you say that - are you talking visuals or underlying changes? There is lots wrong with Windows 10 and many things holding back it's evolution.. but in the end it's down to the consumer to choose whether to upgrade or not.

    Nothing in particular - just learn more about the framework in principal. So start with building up the management groups, landing zones etc. Essentially I need to understand it enough to assist with enterprise implementation of it. Out of interest - is your migration purely IaaS with no conversion to SaaS or PaaS?
  24. Has anyone done anything with the Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure? or interested in learning? Link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cloud-adoption-framework/ I have a need to learn and implement for work so have been (naturally) looking at shifting some XI stuff around to enable me to do that - thought I would ask if anyone else has experience of or would be interested in learning it with me to help get things moving?

  25. *sigh*.. I don't know; I made the mistake of clicking on this thread and see if has turned into a he-said-she-said conspiracy riddled mix of toxic substances that have come out from breeding cows and budgies with each other on nuclear submarines and then giving them the ability to talk and attack each other verbally in different languages when they can't understand one another. <--- see this crap. It's like the other content in this thread. But; on a serious note. Now you have got to insulting each other I think I can get away with locking this thread without being accused of attacking the constitution of the United States of America. Even though I am not American. And the server is not American. And being American has nothing to do with it.
