    Checking to see if servers we manage were targeted was eye opening.
    So many script kiddies out there

        I think they'll sweep the emmys this year.
        Would happily watch a Tom and Greg spin off show.

          Surely you just get everyone in your group to take an antigen test each and away you go? At this stage of the vaxx program.

            Or Greg???
            That was a decent last episode I have to say (not sure it was enough to make up for the crappiness of the first 2/3 of the series).

            They completely lost the plot with whatever they were trying to do with the Kendall character imo

              Last Christmas you gave me the bug and the very next day I gave it away,
              This year to save us from tears I’m doing some antigen testing.

                  While my org doesn't appear to be in bad shape it's causing plenty of requests from 3rd parties. The only bonus is I finally got the green light to make some security changes I was blackballed on previously. I couldn't believe how many systems have this dependency when I went looking. Thankfully the majority are all gravy.

                  There are some pretty big enterprise solutions from a very well known 4 letter company that still haven't been patched or given mitigation instructions.

                    Grand if you're just going to someone's house.

                    Nov 2020 we were told to prepare for my wife's Mam's last Xmas. Thankfully she's gotten another one, and hopefully more. Plans to cook dinner at her house. I can't imagine the cunt I would feel if I went out, picked up Covid and deprived my wife of that.

                    Got invited to a party in Malahide this Sat, from a guy boasting about how his mate owns the place and there'll be 'none of that fucking vax passport bullshit'

                    He goes to me 'I'm not vaxxed, fuck that, are you vaxxed?'

                    Yep I says, 'Jab that booster into me'

                    'oh right yeah, each to their own, each to their own'

                    Yeah I'll go to your party, GTFO
                    I hold silver in tit for tat, and I love you for that

                        Booster appointment with the GP on Dec 21st. Nice to get it out of the way before Christmas. If I have to get me next phone/covid topup (thanks Mick) by Paddy's day, so be it. Sore arm for a day or so isn't great though.

                          As I rested on my bench grateful to rest my sore feet, I admired the delicate wrought but flaking ironwork of my saviour, the humble bench, and for a a few moments I travelled back to a time when we shared loftier aspirations..

                            And so he said to me, anothers sockets due,
                            I turned me face away, and called Lazare to the stairs

                            I could have punched him Will, well so would anyone,
                            He took your tools from you , when you 1st came here,
                            He kept them with him Will, he kept them as his own
                            Can’t make my DIY, I’ve me own bleedin stuff to do.

                                Working in Tom Keogh of Keogh's crisps' house today.

                                Said to him 'Hey Tom, I've a bag of King with me for me lunch, do I have to leave your property?'

                                He goes 'You have to leave the county' he points out the back and says 'see that fence over there, that's Meath'

                                He went off then and came back with a big box of jumbo sized salt and vinegar and says 'There ya go, there's some real crisps for you'

                                  What stage are we on in the vaxx programme ? In Germany in one province they are giving boosters one month after the last or second dose. Thankfully on last day of quarantine here and exactly 6 months of Covid recovery pass. Frustrating 10 days feel good now sense of smell taste is back. For the vast majority nothing to fear it’s a virus not the Black Death.

                                          It’s been shown umpteen times that the number of Covid deaths have been exaggerated over estimated. But you are rugby I’m guessing the people 18 months ago who had stage 4 cancer would still be alive and dancing.

                                            So how many deaths would you deem acceptable?

                                            The precautions society are collectively being asked to take will protect those who are vulnerable.

                                            everyone get it in the name of herd immunity
                                            resulted in both to geniuses being hospitalised.
                                            They then proceeded to downplay it's effects.

                                            You're better than them sir.
                                            Take a more enlightened path.

                                              We could go full military lockdown and have zero deaths if we wanted to. Clearly there is a line.

The only bonus is I finally got the green light to make some security changes I was blackballed on previously. I couldn't believe how many systems have this dependency when I went looking. Thankfully the majority are all gravy.

                                                                                                      MrsHiFi: What is that? Is it like black metal?
                                                                                                      Me. No. I suppose you'd call it noise rock. Maybe sort of avant grade indie.
                                                                                                      MrsHiFi. I don't know how you can listen to it. Why do you like it?
                                                                                                      Me: I dunno. It's challenging. It's shocking. It's extreme. I like the way it sounds. Why does anyone like any art?
                                                                                                      MrsHiFi: It's making me feel sick
                                                                                                      Me: Well they were never really popular. They took a lot of acid and lived in a van and had a naked girl dance on stage with them. It was chaos.
                                                                                                      MrsHiFi: Do you not think that's demeaning to women.
                                                                                                      Me: Well she was a performance artist. She was part of the band. Her name was "Ta Da the shit lady" I won't tell you why though...
                                                                                                      <silence for about 30 seconds>

Was on some kind of UK placepot prize pool that rolled over a few times unclaimed. Half of it was from some kind of outside syndicate though....
