    Not just outbound. Switch to the storage side and you discover rate limiting and daily quota limits on inbound traffic. Response to all questions - 'Pay me, bitch'.

    i love the way this thread complains about people incapable of change while simultaneously complaining about people embracing change.

    Not Australian IT faeries. Not any more. Our jobs got outsourced twice: once to far away lands, and then again to robots.

    Pornhub just pulled like,14 billion user created videos, so it's probably munched the Googs with the massive delisting.

    Sounds like usual Christmas time family drama. Half the mob don't want to talk to the other half of the mob.

    I just sit in the corner and pour more rum into my eggnog.

    is "eggnog" a Qld dialect term for "mouth"?

    I've been making white Russians with my egg nog.

    Although I prefer to use gin instead of vodka in my white Russians and lately I've been dropping in a splash of Cointreau (I mean into my white Russians in general, not into the egg nog variety).

    it had nothing to do with the storage required.

    Trusteer endpoint protection.

    I wonder what nerds got together at IBM and thought "lets make our own antivirus", "let's design it like it's from 1980", from the golden age that brought you bottom fed dot matrix printers with the teary offy bits of paper on the sides. Let's give it stupid features, annoying prompts, let's make it behave exactly like a virus. All the banks get on board (Possibly because bribes from IBM) and start asking end users to install because virus = bad, credit card theft = bad, broken pc = good. IBM still trying to remain relevant in 2020 by releasing malware. MaaS?

    This is NOT a market ready product! The name and looks do not resonate with anyone except ageing fossils that still like using XP because the future scares them, and their lotus notes doen't install on anyhing modern so they can't use their blackberry anymore.

    It has been out LONG enough that they could have polished this pile of crap somewhat, instead they just keep adding shit to the already oversized pile of poo.

    I thought that was normal for all IBM products.

    to my eyes that's 100% the Windows XP aesthetic. Which is probably worse. Would much rather an 80s green screen terminal.

    Red Hat is an IBM product now

    Indeed, and it already shows. Sad fate for a once pretty decent commercial org.

    Rust in peace. You don't get acquired by IBM, you get sucked into a black hole.
