@kingu_platypus_gidora As I mentioned before, these kinds of comments were made every time a new music style showed up:
Even back in the 1920's the older generation was shocked at what the younger generation was listening to. This repeated again and again, with Rock, then Metal, etc.
However, in the 90's it is my belief that we reached peak noise. Once you have things like Merzbow, where do you go from there?
I'm certainly not a huge fan of some of the music my kids are listening to, but I'd never say "that's not music, it's just noise" just the generations before mine did.
What is the best way to have secure unattended file sharing?
I have a fileserver on my network that holds a number of video files. I also have a mediaserver (running Emby) which mounts the fileserver using NFS.
Now, I treat my home network as being insecure, and therefore I want to make sure all traffic is authenticated and encrypted. For this purpose, I'm using NFS with Kerberos authentication.
I've created a boot script on the mediaserver that runs
kinit -k -t file.keytab username@DOMAIN, and then a cronjob that re-runs this every hour. This ensures that it is able to access the fileserver using krb5p security.
Is there a better way to get secure filesharing like this? Perhaps using Samba instead? I'd like to avoid having a script reauthenticate on a regular basis. It feels quite fragile to me.
@snowyfox 8-bit bytes does not work very well with octal. Octal systems were generally 24- or 36-bit. There was also the 60-bit CDC machines. Again, these are divisible by 3.
It wasn't until the IBM System 360 architecture that the 8-bit words became popular. And once you have an 8-bit unit hexadecimal becomes a lot more convenient.
this song is seven minutes of dudes goin complete ham on their instruments it's a joy to listen to
Is anyone available for some remote part-time work (sysadmin)
A relative of mine is running a small company and needs someone to help them do some work managing a few cloud instances (setting up VM's, installing software), as well as managing their Office 365 service.
The amount of work is a few hours per week, but they want the person to be able to answer quickly (within a few hours) within work hours (Singapore time, UTC+8).
If anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll forward the contact information.
Wow. It's funded. It looked bad for a while there but for some reason things came together in the end. Was it mentioned somewhere so it got some more visibility? @viTekiM
Is there some article or something I can read that explains what happened? Those new terms of service was so bad that there must have been a lot if complaints.
