    They'd make them work worse than they did originally forcing you to go paperless.

    You better inform Tom Mueller he has no idea what hes talking about, because it was him who said musk basically developed the falcon 1 rocket himself when Tom Mueller was the 3rd person to be employed by spacex to design the Merlin engine. Tom also states that the reason for the overall architecture and what makes Merlin such a good reliable engine was completely driven by conversations with musk and then musk pulling his money where his mouth is ( they destroyed nearly 50 engines figuring out how to make merlin work).

    Looks like nothing but tall poppy syndrome from where i stand.......

    We use ECM (TechOne). I'd really rather stab myself in the eye with a blunt spoon than use it TBH.

    How many companies have been fined for not correctly reporting?

    Looking at the places I've got phishing links served from compromised company sharepoint sites... there should be a few.

    I know a company that probably should have reported - but spent a bunch of time with lawyers to work out they didn't need to. Catch is that you need to prove harm or something, which is open-ended as fuck.

    Zero.

    To be fair, we're only just out of year zero. I hope (but pessimistically don't expect) that there will be whopping big fines for the worst offenders into the future. GDPR type stuff, or better.

    But I fear that outside of Europe, such "give a fuck" is impossible.

    Yeah this had a bit of a surge a few months ago, now they've just gone back to sending an invoice style link to a dodgy page. In fact a few weeks ago we had one of our lowest spam weeks in a year or so <5% spam on our mail volume. I have no idea what happened that week it was a bit odd, considering its averaging >60% for quite a while now.

    Dunno how your SSH client is gonna cope with 6 and a half minute RTT. Configurable option?

    Supports MacOS and Linux apparently. Anyone using this IRL for non-Windows platforms, and care to comment?

    Sophos are giving me the shits.

    First port of call would probably be to check budget. ATP is mucho pricey compared to others - but thats mostly because you're getting a response team as well.

    On a different note, AFP Police check, country selection doesn't default to Australia, nor does it put Australia at the top of the list... everything else was a minor irritation. WTF AUSTRALIAN GUBERMINT SITE!

    The best MSPs hack their own software so at least you know who's in your shit.


    I did mine like 6 months back and it was all fine for me. Maybe the government hates you specifically?

    Nah... I'm just more observant about work flow then you mouth breathers, and get annoyed by simple logic decisions not being made by dumbass devs.
