    The trust model is not broken, when you control all parts of the trust.

    They control the CA, they control the distribution of their Root. They control their servers. They control their server certs. They control their endpoints. They control the certs on the end points. They control which certs are trusted by their servers.

    The DISA model, works just fine, because the trust boundary never leaves themselves.

    Ah yes, I see that now.

    This was also the same day I had trouble getting my internet working again after the storm. Apparently you need to plus the phone line in for ADSL to work....

    Marketecture is the conerstone of the industry and cant be avoided.


    I am pretty sure i made checkpoint dude cry when pulling his marketecture apart late last year and the said solution is still not working due some basic sht that people never bother to think about.

    I asked a Juniper rep what their switching marketshare was after he proudly proclaimed that they're the fastest growing switch company. The answer was 3%.

    Sad donkey.

    If you Buy my PabloSwitch9000!*, I'll be the fasted growing switch company...

    I've gone from Zero switches in the field, to 1 switch in the field... that's Infinite Growth, you can't beat that.



    *The PabloSwitch9000! is a Virtual Virtual Appliance, so you can't actually see it anywhere, but trust me, its worth the money.

    And as soon as you buy it, we'll release PabloSwitch9001. It's 1 better!

    There is a migration process, but it is of course fiendishly difficult and expensive. but com'on it's 1 better!

    Please, tell me more about how much better your $product is than $vendor through the use of obscure and irrelevant metrics based on unreasonable assumptions and half-truths.

    That's one thing I found out a while back when looking at UTM's.. it was like watching 2 monkeys fight each other.

    Vendor A: "Ours is better it does this".
    Vendor B: "Ours is 5% faster than Vendor A"
    Vendor C: "Vendor A and B still wet the bed, don't trust them"
    Vendor A: "Vendor C has herpes, don't shake his hand when doing a deal!"
    Vendor B: "We are disease free - Hurrah!!"
    Vendor D: "Will you all just shut the fuck up, we do an average job, we know it, but we don't want to wank on about being 0.0005% faster or more reliable than anyone else".

    Just trying to recall who the major pissing competition was between.. it was two of the large corporate firewall vendors.

    Whats worse, is when VendorA changes their name to VendorB... it works for a little while, but eventually everyone realises that VendorB is still VendorA, just with a name-change.

    I know of several companies that have gone through a number of "corporate rebrandings" to try and escape a shitty reputation, each time, the shitty reputation catches up with them, mostly because they are providing the same terrible service.

    Not a rant really, just thought I'd brighten the day of those of us who are struggling with this 9at least read the first page). I mean with this and old whiteboxes mate, what could possibly go wrong?

    IT "Professionals" that cannot do a basic software install without a 40minute hand-holding session.

    I've had said professionals ask for a calculator, while either:

    a: sitting at a computer
    b: holding a smart phone
    c: both

    We had a 87 year old engineer at work who still used a calculator and he was a fucking genius.

    Sometimes you are more efficient at certain tasks if you've spent the last 40 years doing it that way.
