    "You've said our printers are Linux systems, that is incorrect"

    You could filter on Get-Process rather than pipe to a Where-Object loop e.g.

    Code:
    Get-Process -Name chrome
    
    And while I enjoy your 79 instances, I'm more interested in your memory footprint

    Code:
    get-process -name chrome | measure-object -Sum PrivateMemorySize | Select-object -Property @{Name="MemoryUsage(MB)"; Expression={"{0:N0}" -f ($_.Sum/1MB)}}, @{Name='Instances'; Expression={$_.Count}}
    
    I only scored:
    Code:
    MemoryUsage(MB) Instances
    --------------- ---------
    4,370                  37
    
    It's low today because my computer is in a pilot group that got rebooted this morning :(

    I can't even compete, I only have 16GB of RAM and if Chrome was using ~15GB of it, I think I'd be in some real trouble.

    I wasn't sure on the process being "Chrome" or "Google Chrome".

    much easier on *nix.

    killall chrome


    But nix guys purposely make command line stuff hard to keep them in work.

    And now my production Solaris box is shutting down...

    Thanks for your help *nix.

    edit:

    Also, "kill -name chrome" works in powershell.

    Over (and thin) provisioned volumes on the offsite SAN.

    11.34TB available in the pool.

    4x 3.75TB volumes made available to the backup server.

    #whatcouldpossiblygowrong?

    Then volumes randomly go offline because the pool is full.

    Now to fix the mess without upsetting Veeam...

    Password policies....

    While there are technologies such as two-factor auth based on hard or soft tokens, my employer persists in their belief that the following Active Directory password policy meets contemporary security needs.

    Minimum length 8 characters
    Password complexity..... dont be silly, its totally unnecessary.
    50 grace login attempts.
    Don't worry if you get your password wrong 50 times, because we only lock the account out for 10 minutes then you're welcome to continue getting your password wrong another 50 times ad-infinitum. No fear of it becoming disabled so someone can investigate why you're a fucking retard, the password isnt complex and you can't seem to remember a dictionary word... maybe your drunk ?

    Oh lordy, password policies, aren't they fun.

    In a previous place of employment, there was no password expiry, 999 login attempts allowed, with no lockout.

    Machines were also set to not lock after extended periods of time, and users would be disgruntled when their computer woke from sleep and prompted for a password.

    For starters, they can't Extend/Extinguish this. It's too big, and there's too many deeply invested parties now. And I genuinely don't think the current Microsoft top brass want to any more. They see more value in working with people, instead of controlling them. It's been a change for the better.

    Regardless of all that political crap, yes, this is good for both Microsoft and their customers. Being more compatible with more stuff is good for everyone in an infinitely connected world.

    You run chrome on a Solaris server? :p

    Current leadership, sure... We'll see in a few years after everyone has stopped paying for SA, and NOT moved to Azure if the next leadersheep wants to continue.


    You don't?

    Well like I said, they can't, even if they want to. Those "copyleft" hippies were smart in using the very laws that protect proprietary code to also protect open source code. Anyone who tries to degrade that law only shoots themselves in the foot. Mutually assured destruction. :)

    Tried, but it wouldn't install on my ZFS appliance.

    It never fails to blow my mind how many users just don't get multiple screens.

    Or, for places still using VGA, the 'auto adjust' button.

    HOW ON EARTH CAN IT LOOK SO BLURRY OR STRETCHED AND YOU DON'T FIND THAT CAUSE FOR CONCERN???

    Heh took me a second to realise that the corp proxy was blocking that. But honestly that's how I imagine them.
