Work and College
Authored by: inemo on May 04, '05 07:41:06PM

At college there are only two of us with laptops (I have a 12" powerbook and the other guy a 14" iBook.) The college network is 100% windows XP, but running on a w2k server. Its also only locked down to pc's, for some reason macs have unlimited access to staff server data. We can also reconfigure the printers remotely.

At work (pie factory) we use windows 98 running inhouse booking software. The servers are Unix though. Not sure what flavour.

Haughtiness of Windows admins
Authored by: gabester on May 05, '05 12:32:15AM

It's illustratively ironic that, for all their so-called security measures and the clearly identifiable security issues, Windows "admins" are often so clueless about actually setting up their systems. For instance, they think that, just because Microsoft taught them while they were studying for their MCSEs, that running all your printers through a Windows Server print queue, you're guaranteeing that all PCs authenticating against the domain will have to utilize those queues. They never think to ask the question, "how does the Windows Server then access the print queue??" Whaddaya mean, those Macs/Linux boxen/hacker machines don't autheticate against my domain??
