7/14    Wall-E is totally annoying. That horny iron POS has the IQ of
        a 2 year old kid. It's like that annoying pitbull you see on TV
        that always wants to hump other dogs or other people's legs.
        \_ ^annoying^cute.  Its a child's movie, get over yourself.

7/14    Help sendmail experts. I forward email from my own domain to I have never had any problem until recently. The problem
        happens only when eBay sends an email to my domain (as I receive the mail on my domain/my machine, and
        when it tries to forward to gmail, I get the following:
         Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; host <DEAD><DEAD>[w.x.y.z]
         said: 550 5.7.1 Unauthenticated email is not accepted from this
         l31si10176981rvb.6 (in reply to end of DATA command)
        What could be causing this and how do I fix it? Thanks.
        \_ anti-joe-job/spam measures, probably relying on SPF dns records. See
   Mail forwarding is a known problem for SPF,
           though you may be able to fix it for just your case. -ERic

7/15    help, if i see anyone driving a Land Rover or Humvee in a non
        combat situation I automatically think they are an asshole.
        \_ what's wrong with that?
        \_ Look at the way those cars were advertised a few years ago.
           They are marketed as "fuck you" cars.  No duh people who own
           They are marketed as "f*** you" cars.  No duh people who own
           them are assholes.
        \_ Feel the same way about Jeeps?
           \_ My 1996 Jeep Cherokee (169.2in) is shorter than a Honda Civic.
              \_ So what?  When people complain about SUVs and the people who
                 buy them, the car's length is generally not what they're
                 objecting to.  What on earth are you trying to say?
                 \_ I'm just trying to say not all SUVs are equally bad-ass,
                    in terms of the space that it takes up and gas mileage.
                    Mine has better gas mileage than some full-size sedans.
                    Mine has better gas mileage than some luxury sedans.
                    Mine has better gas mileage than some luxury sedans. -- PP
                    \_ Doesn't change that Jeep was designed for combat.
                       \_ Also designed without shock-absorbers or comfortable
                          seating. Hardcore means no more kidney stones.
        \_ I wished that Cal Tech student burned down more Hummers.
           I totally support his cause.
        \_ if you really want to punish those assholes, lobby congress don't
           do anything about the high gas prices.  Let these road bullies
           PAY for their choices.   Right now, we would rather invade another
           country than willing to let gas price rise.

        Move over Tesla, a cheaper electric car is on the horizon!
        \_ The RAV4 EV wasn't that expensive.
        \_ Why do you say 'move over tesla' when the linked article is actually
           about the next model of tesla?
           \_ What I mean is "Move over, expensive car for rich people.
              FUCK Y'ALL RICH PEOPLE who benefited from tax breaks from
              F*** Y'ALL RICH PEOPLE who benefited from tax breaks from
              GWB and Reagan, now we poor suckers can drive EV as well!"

7/14    anyone know this guy?
        A disgruntled city computer engineer has virtually commandeered
        San Francisco's new multimillion-dollar computer network,
        altering it to deny access to top administrators even as he
        sits in jail on $5 million bail, authorities said Monday.
        \_ The article is short on technologies involved.  It sounds vaguely
           like he commandeered their domain's administrator account.
           \- i suspect waterboarding would be successful in this case.
              \_ Is that you in the sfgate comments?
                 \- no, i didnt not read the comments.
                    \_ probably better that way.  they make me sad.
        \_ I enjoy how the article says there is no known motive.  Anyone who
           has hung out with disgruntled sysadmins know that no motive is
        \_ No, but he is the poster child for a BOFH. I wish I knew him,
           so I could shake his hand.
           \_ Having worked with IT guys who couldn't comprehend the fact that
              IT is fucking support and not an ends to itself I wish I knew
              IT is f***ing support and not an ends to itself I wish I knew
              him so I could kick him in the balls.
              \_ Depends. IT can be support or it can be an ends to itself.
                 For the city I'd say IT is a big part of what they do.
                 \_ IT by itself is nothing.  IT is a tool to make other
                    tasks easier.  I accept that.  Keep the tools running
                    is an honorable job.  Just admit that's not what you
                    are doing.
                    \_ Well it depends. I think you are too limited in
                       your scope. There are a lot of situations where the
                       tool is more important than the operator. Making a
                       job so simple that a monkey can do it is one of the
                       areas where IT can help and in those instances I
                       think the IT adds more value than the actual "doers".
                       At that point where IT is contributing more
                       significantly to the bottom line I wouldn't say it
                       is a supporting role anymore, but a key role.
                       Addendum: What role you would say IT plays at companies
                       like eBay?
                       \_ Or Amazon, with the EC2 project?
        \_ it might be a big Peoplesoft install.
        \_ He made $149,269 working for the gov't, which is not bad now is it?
           \_ Previous motd postings lead me to believe that this makes him
              rich. Still won't make $5m bail, though.
           \_ This is a lot of money, almost as much as I make as a Director
              in the private sector. Maybe those public sector IT geeks are
              overpaid afterall...
              \_ Plus he can't get fired even when he's clearly got issues and
                 he probably has better benefits than you do, too.

7/15    Real Mac iPhone docking station costs too much. Where is a good place
        to buy 3rd party docking stations that are GOOD? I'm a bit wary
        of eBay after 2 incidents.  Thanks for any advice.
        \_ You spend 2-300 bucks on a phone and $70 a month on service and
           the 50 dollar docking station is too much?
           \_ It's only $70 a month?  Where?
              \_ It's always $70/month. I'm paying for $129.00/month
                 for 2 iPhones. It's always been like that. I have the
                 3G BTW. And you'll pay like $20 extra for tax, FCC,
                 anti-terrorist, and vote for GWB fees. Those stuff.
            \_ Isn't the min plan 40 for voice and 30 for data?  I never
               even come close to 450/month non nights/weekends minutes so
               all I need is the minimum voice plan.  Then again I don't
               own an iPhone so I may be confusing the plans.

7/15    FUCK YOU dim shit and your SUV and big suburb Republican loving
        Southern Californians. I hope the big one wipes out you fuckers.
        FUCK YOU ALL.
        \_ Agreed, die in hell dim!
           \_ Uh, what? Sounds like you have issues. I'm not Republican
              and don't own an SUV. I live in the suburbs, but what does
              that have to do with anything? Bay Area is full of suburbs,
              too. I hope this response humors you.

7/15    Nouriel Roubini feels a great disturbance in the Force:
        This is by far the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
        Hundreds of small banks with massive exposure to real estate (the
        average small bank has 67% of its assets in real estate) will go bust.
        Dozens of large regional/national banks (a la IndyMac) are also
        bankrupt given their extreme exposure to real estate and will also go
        Some major money center banks are also semi-insolvent and while they
        are deemed too big to fail their rescue with FDIC money will be
        extremely costly.
        In a few years time there will be no major independent broker dealers
        as their business model (securitization, slice & dice and transfer of
        toxic credit risk and piling fees upon fees rather than earning income
        from holding credit risk) is bust ...
        \_ Young Padawan, you have obviously never lived through a real
           recession. My WFC is up 25% today, BAC up 10%, KRE and KBE up
           recession. My WFC is up 33% today, BAC up 22%, KRE and KBE up
           almost as much...

           over 30. That sort of thing. Never been truer.
