  • Re: Security Through Insanity

    [quote user="Zemm"] Top-right "Forums" link still comes here. It's only the comments on the front-page articles that randomly links to the two discussion areas (both of which are not these forums) [/quote] That, and the section on the left "Side Bar" that points to the discussions here for ...

  • Re: Clairvoyant Microsoft documentation

    [quote user="Daniel Beardsmore"]I really hope someone doesn't have to type those in by hand. Microsoft Minutes have taken a turn for the worse. It reminds me of Crtl and Son of Crtl: [clipped shot] Yes, in Windows you had to (still do have to?) type menu shortcuts out by hand.[/quote] Are those actual bugs?  Ctrl-S is ...

  • Re: All the networking equipment goes in the attic

    Oh, things could also be worse.  (Paraphrased below)  Me:  Ok, that should do it.  We have converted off of all of those temporary analog telco lines (POTS) onto the T1.  The only analog lines left should be those couple marked for 911 failover support.  Jr Engineer sent by a good contractor:  Ok, I will go ...

  • Re: All the networking equipment goes in the attic

    [quote user="eric76"]Yeah. I'm tempted to pull the wall outlets and see if they connected the pairs correctly. Years ago, I knew someone who wired an office for ethernet but skimped on cables by using two pair of a cable for one connection and two pair for another connection. I hope I never see anyone do that again.[/quote] I ...

  • Re: Finaly a Front page WTF worthy of the title

    [quote user="locallunatic"][quote user="slavdude"]Yeah, and even more fun, if you don't post very often (like me), you have to recreate your account in the new system.[/quote] The import didn't work super well (name length limits, characters being not allowed, and so on) and was mainly intended to keep people from ...

  • Re: Sql Constants!

    [quote user="Darsithis"] I got the impression from a few people that they thought I wrote this. I did not. I'm debating how to deal with it because this system IS in production (not development, no replacement, it is the replacement) and I have to be careful how many hours I devote to it and what I do. While I do stage all of my ...

    [quote user="db2"][quote user="anachostic"] [quote user="Lorne Kates"] Explain how this gets injected with Option Strict On: Sub Whatever(id As Integer) Dim sql As String = "select name from users where id={0}" exec(String.Format(sql, id)) End Sub [/quote] [/quote] And now your ...

  • Re: Damn forced upgrade to Win7!

    [quote user="too_many_usernames"]4. Some of my customer-specific apps don't work on Win7 64 bit. Third party, not mine, I know, I know. (Best part? The app was written in .Net...)[/quote] I may have missed it, but typically it is some native API/DLL code (non CLR) that causes a 32 bit program to not work on 64 bit.  In most ...

  • Re: Perfect email footer

    A couple of years ago I recieved an e-mail without such a disclaimer and attatched was some one elses Tax Return from their accountant.  Just because we had the dame first/last name and simmilar email addresses (different domain names)  In retrospect, does that mean I now "own" their tax return?  Can I claim their ...
