If you're in my business of looking at logfiles to be able to determine what's going on or what has happened one of the most annoying, and frightening, things to see is a sheer amount of failed login attempts. In most cases these are simply genuine mistakes where a lingering management ...

Oh boy.

And here's Comcast's quick apology now that the shit hit the fan: http://corporate.comcast.com/comcast-voices/a-public-apology-to-conal-orourke.

What a rotten company, too big to operate in a way that takes good care of customers.
Comcast is a "very valuable" client to PriceWaterhouseCoopers—where he worked.

5 Years ago wrote this article: Server virtualisation is the result of software development incompetence. Yes, it has given me some grief given the fact 99% of respondents did not read beyond the title and made false assumptions saying I accused these developers for being stupid. Tough luck.

Adobe has just given us a graphic demonstration of how not to handle security and privacy issues. A hacker acquaintance of mine has tipped me to a huge security and privacy violation on the part of Adobe. That anonymous acquaintance was examining Adobe’s DRm for educational purposes when they noticed that Digital Editions 4, the newest version of …

I always try to keep a clean slate on my Linux box. Not only when it comes to security but one thing I really hate is the massive amount of stuff that gets downloaded as “chemical waste by-products” like a gazilion revisions of twitter and other (anti-)social media icons, pictures, style-sheets ...

As we normally don't spend much time in our rooms we went for the "less luxurious", and thus cheaper option. This allowed us to spend the money on the "all-inclusive" package the hotel offered which was very good. We did a few excursions like a boat trip on the river (my daughter had her birthday on the day and the boat was all dressed up :-)), checked out my ancestors heritage in Galle where we spend a few hours in the Dutch fort. Colombo was on the bucket-list as well where we visited the old colonial Dutch museum as well as the Dutch Hospital (which has been transformed in a shopping centre). All in all I can certainly recommend this hotel for a great holiday. The hotel has all amenities you wish for. Gym, massage therapy (I can certainly recommend that), water-skiing and other fun stuff. All-inclusive package provided us with enough to drink and eat during our stay. The buffet has a wide range of choices with different 'themes" throughout the week so there is a taste for everyone. If you want to dine alone or with your partner there are also other options available.

After a full days drive from Melbourne the nice folk at BW Bluegum gave us a recently renovated room. All very clean and nice. Good service at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Excellent place to do some short hiking with your family. Plenty of parking space, nice BBQ areas. Dogs are allowed on a leech. No restaurants or cafes.

Friendly people. Always happy to help out. A bit understaffed but I guess woollies is not putting any money into it anymore. Too bad. Wood have been good competition wise.

Nice small resort suitable for a short stay. The place could use either a thorough cleanup or an overhaul as interior, furniture and appliances could use a update to more modern standards. I found that the end-cleaning was rushed as for a two bedroom, kitchen and living area you would need more than 30 minutes to clean. No further complaints though. Very nice people who run the place and very helpful. Kids enjoyed the pools and spa and Noosa is a great place to stay.
