  • The positive is that Chrome makes updates seamless. However, I definitely have some users that never close their browser even though there is a honkin' update icon next to their address bar. 
    On that note, I recently had a user whose machine's uptime was ~70 days. So they somehow got missed during our patches (fixed) and their definition of shutting down their computer was locking it (hopefully fixed but not holding my breath).

  • Microsoft Employees Exposed Own Company’s Internal Logins - I'm not picking on Microsoft, because they're not the only large company that continues to be plagued with events like this.   It goes to show how difficult implementing information security is.

    I have no doubt Microsoft has multiple documented security policies following "best practices" which should have prevented this.  As a result of this exposure, new policies will probably be published.   But there has to be a disconnect between policy and reality, and as long as the disconnect exists, I think events such as this will continue.

    Edited to add: Maybe the next fortune to be made in IT, is not development or refinement of policies, but finding a way to consistently and efficiently make existing policies become reality.

  • With the number of development stories that banter around billion dollar price tags, it is nice to hear that NASA spent a conservative 50 million on a new chip. Never thought the day would come when I thought 50 million was a good deal.

  • "Up to three meteors per hour will be visible".  This sounds like not a lot to me.  I could easily miss all three every hour.

    Cube space computers?  That's how the Borg started.

  • Saw the report in Defender about the Chrome update and was able to start updating in the head office. Now the fun begins where I can get Chrome to update via Intune automatically so it free's up more of my time for other things on the network.



    I think this is more realistic for most of us before we get to the type of computer that GuruGabe1​ posted but we can wish and hope we just automatically get upgraded

  • Well, Asteroids with Moons is a cool thing!

    As for 3 meteors an hour, doesn't sound like a meteor storm to me - I wonder what the average is when not in a "meteor storm"?  Probably about the same or more?

    And Occult?  so Nasa are consulting the dark arts now?  50 points to Slytherin!

    Specially designed to work in the environment that is space ... not just a matter of zero-G, but also other radiation considerations, etc.

    It might seem strange on the surface, but when you consider the operating environment parameters, there are significant differences to our ground-based operating environment(s).

    Admittedly, while there is probably a reasonable chance most off-the-rack CPUs would be OK, there is a higher level of uncertainty than what they are willing to risk lives with (or so it would seem).

    And you can't simply send a technician to the device of an unmanned mission many hundred million kms away for replacing a too damaged CPU.
