    That's just the first test, not-australian = insta-fail.

    despite having a much higher level of clearance, gov departments that are supposed to use/rely on these clearances still insist I get a police check regularly.

    Alphabetically Australia is 10th and will require you to scroll down the list, when most people dealing with Australian Federal Police will most likely live in Australia. However they could just set Australia as the default so you are at that position, or place it first on the drop down along with New Zealand and other countries that have a higher percentage rate or usage for the site. But I guess thats why you all have such a high opinion of programmers because your willing to accept mediocrity.

    October, March and May are the most popular months to be born in, Should DOB fields be ordered with these at the top?

    As long as the field is called "Country" let your browsers form autocomplete deal with it :).

    I'm with you. Carsales has the most common vehicles listed right at the top, Holden, Toyota, Ford, Subaru plus a few others. Then if you want can scroll down the full alpha list.

    If you don't use the usability tools provided by the software, I'm not sure you can complain about the usability of websites.

    2nd attempt at a telstra/nbnco ADSL-FTTC changeover today. First attempt they had assigned the wrong DPU, tech couldn't find it. At 5pm he was 24th in the queue to get support on the phone so we gave up.

    Second attempt today. It took an hour, but the tech found the DPU, 200m up the street. He finishes in 30mins so is giving up and leaving.

    local privileged admin access reduces the attack vector dramatically.

    It's a vulnerability that relies on administrative access to the device to fuck with boot security. If an adversary gains that much access to the firewall/core switching hardware without anyone noticing then it's pretty much game over anyway.

    What are the odds on poor code quality from Cisco, or a nation state inserted vulnerability?
