@sotolf @hund People seem to have forgotten the principle of progressive enhancement. Build your website so simple that it works with a console based browser.

As usual: saving money, live better guy never thought that this would happen so all zone files along with other settings for ~30 domains are gone. It's going to be a hell tomorrow morning for him :-). Machine was running since 1999. He could not find older model of motherboard which could take this disk. Ah well .. RIP

Humans: People can't be trusted to do the right thing. We need a government to keep the masses in line.

Also humans: I demand my autonomy!

Anybody ever heard about ? Anyone uses it ? Sitting in the training for the product which utilizes this product and I can't believe that people are actually falling for this kind of .

.... getting lost in this freaking corporate dictionary :-(. Always thought that I am at the level where I can handle life situations in English but the longer I am in this job the more I am convinced that my English is literally s**t for corporate world.
