The problem is, this:
Less than 7% of the private sector benefit from anything you have googled

is not true, or rather is an effect of:

Unions get "smeared" because of the host of things I've pointed out. Union membership will be lower again next year because of how terrible they are.

It's disconcerting that you or AD even question my  point that unions aren't situational and they aren't for a specific type of worker. They either work, or they don't. Currently they don't.


Yes, I'm willing to agree that only 7% of the work force is in Unions, but they have definitely benefited from Unions of Christmas past. That's the issue here.

This may be another year where I can't keep up due to work, plus we changed cable providers on the road to cutting the cord, to get a better deal and lost some channels (kept 1 SEC though). We're ranked pretty well right now.

Tech Heads / Re: Storage Administration question
« on: September 03, 2015, 07:43:37 PM »
gotcha. thanks.

I can also probably deduce from current usage how/why I should configure things in the future.

Also, I was going to just drop a Mac Mini with a USB3 and a Thunderbolt external disks and do it that way, from my Racks at LAN speeds, but we already have a 10GbE link to them any way and how to access this storage we bought has already come up again in the last day, so I do need to figure this out one way or another. My google-fu was weak for checking basic questions like, will CIFS to NFS destroy Windows ACLs (I'm pretty sure yes) and can you use rsync on CIFS shares (like using the Mac Mini as sync host), and finally will CIFS to CIFS copies between non-domain members preserve Windows ACLs.

yeah, we just bought it and a whole NetApp setup too, for VMware (Servers + VDI), and grid/project storage. Of course that means I will have to figure out how to support complicated storage appliances for the next 5+ years with 0 experience. That's what I was getting at, as far as how to administer storage, though also the basic shit like when/what RAIDs to use behind the scenes.

I finally caved and admitted my ignorance asking WTF he means.

If they don't, virtual SANs will certainly kill the NetApps due to commoditization of direct attached storage.

As for ACLs, I don't care if they are readable on the other site, so long as they are there and unmodified during a copy back, if necessary.

Backstory: my coast was never meant to have a datacenter. We have always leveraged our main campus in Maryland for that. But, as it always goes, some infrastructure has creeped in over the years. We eventually got 2 "Big RAM" boxes several years ago and an out of support NetApp to handle holding the data for computation. Even though everyone was told, "this is out of support and can die at any moment" and "we aren't going to back any of this up" it has come to handle storage for just about everything on this coast. Now, some of it may have been replicated to the East Coast, to run on the grid, but not enough to avert disaster I am sure.

This all came to light again, now that this will become my headache as we slowly kill the MD office. The Datacenter, and a lot of newly purchased NetApp and Isilon storage, is heading this way before Dec 31. I just need a DR spot to hold the ~4TB of data that's not backed up here, until storage comes online and we can kill these old hosts, or at least repurpose them to less dire tasks.

This "other site" was initially presented as NFS, but due to the Windows ACL requirements, they said that they could do CIFS, as well. So is that the deal for the UID request, they are expecting me to use a Linux host to replicate the data? Can you use rsync to replicate CIFS shares and retain ACLs?

Tech Heads / Storage Administration question
« on: September 03, 2015, 02:35:46 PM »
I am woefully unprepared to administer storage, but then again I think it's an easier topic to learn about. Questions:

1) I am in a situation where I need to backup an internal CIFS share (preserving all windows ACLs), disk-to-disk, to what is essentially another storage area, outside our network, at a CoLo; CoLo in this case is actually a University that we have free rack space at, that is also playing the role of ISP. They are asking for a UID from the system I will use to access the share. This is a Windows machine, so what are they really asking for?

2) As long as this is CIFS to CIFS, even though this is not within our domain, the ACLs will persist as meta data during the copy, right?

3) What's a good place to start/continue reading about storage and best practice, including backup topics?

Since I don't have a smartphone, I didn't know about this, but I'm with AD on this one.

Oftentimes I'm out backpacking where there is no service whatsoever, can't even make a call.  If I had a smart phone I might want to play music or something, and this would disallow me to do that.

you can save music locally and play off-network. AD is just not happy with the way it works, as far as how you save those things.

all of them? why do people trust corporations to not rape them for every last thing they are worth? they do it to everything else, both historically and in the present.

The threat of the union is what keeps my non union job honest and equal w/o having to pay union dues.
Unions cost companies money so of course a smart business would just do things right so a union doesn't come in. They cost money because they can cause delays and encourage mediocrity. They also cost lots of money in attorneys fees. If your talking about a union that represents workers in corporations, don't ever go to a union for pay or benefits. Unions don't call shots, they don't set salaries, they don't determine benefits (unless of course they come from the union and still, good luck with them being any better than obamacare). Every corporation in America that has a labor attorney pays their non-union employees the same as their unionized employees. They have the same benefits. They have the same rules and procedures. Two differences:
1. Unionized workers can file grievances. Is that an advantage? Not really. Your shop steward and local business agent come to an agreement and most of the time, it's agreeing with management. If you violated a policy (which are all in the union contract) they won't give a damn (open and shut).
2. Unionized workers won't receive any type of payment incentives that non-union employees will be eligible for (the unions never want them, it encourages working harder/might get the job done in less hours -- less pay for the union). The unions need dues to subsist. I've personally seen the Teamsters open up a negotiation with "give us Dues check off and you can write the rest of the contract".

For anyone that doesn't know, dues check off means the employer authorizes the union to automatically deduct your union dues from your paycheck and electronically transfer it straight to the union. Otherwise the union has to try to collect from everybody and that costs them money in collecting and processing. Dues check off is a complete win for the union and once they're paid, they really don't care.

If you are the minority union worker that works at a port or mega-trade, you're doing OK and congrats on that hook up (since it takes a hook up to even get into one of those jobs). Retail/hotel/security/warehousing -- you lose your ass. Don't work in these industries for pay unless you plan on becoming mid-senior level management.


Sure, that's everything wrong with the way unions can be run. Wasn't always like that. However, if you don't think Unions do have some impact in workers rights/compensation then you aren't being intellectually honest. My Dad was an uneducated grunt mechanic working night shifts for 25 years. We always had good medical coverage and he put me through 4 years of college and was prepared to do the same for my younger brother. We both went to private HS 'til by bro fucked that up. We rarely had new shit, but all our necessities were taken care of. If you think businesses - especially large corporations - would happily give that out without needing to, then we'll have to just disagree.

also, you can text voice messages. Recording a memo and doing it later would suck.

I need to email a voice recording to a student practicing for a speech contest

That may be a highly particular circumstance, but you'll never convince me it's not stupid that there's a perfectly good file sitting on my phone that I can't do anything with because the only way to access it is through the app I recorded it in, which can only play it or delete it. And even if it's particular, I seem to be running into this /type/ of problem left and right just doing day-to-day stuff since I got the phone. Even if other people don't it still just seems...stupid.

I'd say you're just the Android prototype user. Sounds like you'll only be happy with them. I've had to support them, IT-wise, and I can tell you it's much easier and more secure to use iPhone. Since it's a business tool for me it just needs to work and be secure. Those aren't your concerns, so stick with what you like. Android was also way more wonky at release, which also gave me greater affinity for iOS. I doubt that's the same on higher end Android these days.

« on: August 26, 2015, 05:12:43 PM »
Never had time to learn an instrument. My little bro bought me an acoustic once and I started practicing a bit, building strength, but I was finishing up my Comp Sci degree at the time and programming ate up what ever spare time I had out of work.

I loved playing drums on Rock Band and have always loved the sound of the cello.

Come from a Union family. There were 2 times while growing up that my Dad had to strike. Didn't affect me too much, but I'm sure it was hard on the parentals. My Dad is now Teamsters New Orleans local President.

in other unrelated news i've wacked off 5 times in the last 2 days. Thrice yesterday and twice today. lately i've legitimately gone a week before realizing 'man, i havn't beaten off in more than week, i probably should' but in the last 2 days everything i've seen has made me want to pop open porn hub and rub one out. I'd have hit 3 today already but had to work a bit late, but hey, the nights still young and murdering an asian guy is giving me half a chubby atm.
