By the time you read this, you are probably auto-magically running on WordPress 4.2.4.
It’s a security release. You can read about the changes here.
Have a good time sitting back and doing nothing while it takes care of itself!
When I say “voodoo” in this context, I’m really talking about bullshit explanations for things based on guesswork, rather than reasoned argument built using facts and investigation.
It’s really easy for voodoo explanations to proliferate when people are starved of facts. There are several ways this can happen, but a couple of them that spring to mind and really piss me off are:
In this post, we’re going to use Delphix to create a virtual ASM diskgroup, and provision a clone of the virtual ASM diskgroup to a target system. I call it vASM, which is pronounced “vawesome.” Let’s make it happen.
Most viewers assume Gollum was talking about Shelob the giant spider here, but I have it on good authority that he was actually talking about Delphix. You see, Delphix (Data tamquam servitium in trinomial nomenclature) is the world’s most voracious datavore. Simply put, Delphix eats all the data.
I read a post this morning and it hit a raw nerve or two.
As followers of the blog will know, I use KeePass for all my work and personal passwords. I’ve come across a number of sites that prevent pasting passwords for “security reasons” and it drives me nuts. Fortunately, most of the them can’t prevent the auto-type feature, so at least that’s something…
Technology is scary for a lot of people, but the biggest problem I see out there is denial (It’s not just a river in Africa! ).
For people who are new to technology, the biggest problem I see is they refuse to actually read what is on the screen. I’m not talking about those stupid End User License Agreement (EULA) screens that nobody reads. I’m talking about basic instructions. If a screen says,
“Enter your username and password, then click the Login button.”
I just noticed MobaXterm 8.0 was released a few days go.
WordPress 4.2.3 has been released.
It contains fixes for some pretty nasty stuff. Usually, the updates have to be manually triggered for a day or so before the auto-update feature picks them up. I was on the blog this morning and there were no “manually triggered auto-updates” available, so it looks like this one has been pushed straight out, which probably makes sense.
By the time you’ve read this you are probably up to date already, but if not, get on your blog and give it a nudge.
The title of this post is taken from tweet I saw a few weeks ago and it keeps coming back to haunt me, so I thought I would comment on it.
Let me start by saying I don’t have any context as to why the tweeter thought people were showing Azure so much love. From my perspective, I kind-of like Azure and I think it is what my employer will end up using, but I’m not a crazed fan-boy about it.
