@OceanDefenders Great story, I hope it is read by many people.@thepacketrat Remedy ITSM (IT Service Management) is as bad as PeopleSoft; though PeopleSoft is bad to many more people than Remedy.
Apple warned us for years that "This file is going away." - etc/hostconfig is gone from Yosemite. #RIPhostconfig http://t.co/zrA3234U6AVerizon just sent the monthly bill with a new $10 increase on FIOS. (No advance notification, no increase in bandwidth or service.)
What pisses me off the most about disabling Pay is: a.) It was working and b.) they turned it off because it protected my identity.
Retweeted by Dan O'DonnellIt is now running OSX 10.10, and has a stack of HDDs attached. It'll get OSXS 10.10 in a few days, once the base OS is stabilized.@GlennF I vaguely remember that we didn't transfer the passed over the net. So it was definitely good that you did. And it was a clever one.@GlennF Yep.@rtrouton @ctdawe @tbridge I'm also thinking of taking the big leap to IPv6. :-)@rtrouton Ah, and "Forget Computers". I talked to Ben at length at MacITconf last March. Sharp guy, knows what he's doing. Thx for the rec.@rtrouton Bender is now on the list of things todo. (Bilingual pun intended.)And the deed is done. RAID is broken. Yosemite is coming down the FIOSwire. (Seems like it takes forrrrevah!) #IWantItAndIWantItNow@ctdawe Glad to be of service for your hours-before-workweek wordplay humor needs!@tbridge PS: "Overhead" = a super-secret famous surf spot in northern SoCal. Maybe Apple could use that name… :-)@tbridge Thanks!@tbridge Okay. Well - here goes… :-)@tbridge You think the RAID is overhead? Or breaking the RAID is overhead.@tbridge In-house OD, storage and file serving, wiki (for online documentation), nothing more that I need.@tbridge So you recommend straight to Yosemite and then OSXS?C2D, 4GB RAM, 2x 500 GB intHD (RAID) - am thinking about breaking the RAID.Yep, awhile back (okay, 3 years ago) I bought Glenn's old mini server. Finally getting around to installing it for the SOHO.Now, to see if I can upgrade to 10.9 OSX and then OSXS… (How do I dodge/wait on the 10.10? Or is it worth it to go straight to Yosemite?)Saved! The most clever @glennf put in a password hint that I grokked, and I was able to log in. Yay!All disk drives inventoried, ✔. New ScanSnap installed, ✔. Hardware installed for mini OSXS 10.6., ✔. Log into … Forgot password - argh!
@ctdawe That hashtag is on the money. Triple entendre intended.So the retailers that have been badly, consistently hacked are building their own payment system tied direct to our checking accounts?

Many rationalizations for Apple’s QA problems seem based in Apple’s refusal or inability to grow some staffs. Scrappiness has a limit.

@atlauren It's a bit more complicated than that, but they're like American pilots in the 60s and 70s - except they're now in 21C.@atlauren The pilots of Air France are on strike because they don't like the business model of having to live somewhere that's not Paris.Hey @AirFrance pilots! What's it feel like to be so entitled and egotistical!? How many 100s of 1000s of people did you damage?
