Everybody is an Admin



  • Hi I just saw this on a client computer in our domain. This was made by a previous admin.

    MEmbers of the Admin group

    So everybody was an admin on this system. This is quite handy as everybody is allowed to log onto this workstation... And if you forgot your password, just remeber John.Doe@Domain.local's password is"jd"

    They also spelled "computer", "admin" and "administrator" correctly, but that's all.

     

    Seriously, though, this looks like some pretty bad malware is screwing up the system; probably because every user runs as an Administrator.  The obvious solution would be a liberal application of napalm to Dresden, and a mix of conventional and nuclear weaponry applied in a line from Berlin to Stuttgart.

    What about the Bavarians? You're gonna kill half the country, but leave the Bavarians alive? Well fuck you then! Make the line go from Berlin to Munich, and we have a deal.

    Bavarian cream donuts

    Hello Wikipedia:
    Bavarian cream or Crème bavaroise or simply Bavarois[1]is a classic dessert, a Swiss invention according to the French,[2] but one that was included in the repertory of Marie-Antoine Carême, who is sometimes credited with it.[3] It was named in the early nineteenth century for Bavaria or, perhaps more likely in the history of haute cuisine, for a particularly distinguished visiting Bavarian, such as a Wittelsbach. Escoffier declared that Bavarois would be more properly Moscovite, owing to its preparation, in the days before mechanical refrigeration, by being made in a "hermetically-sealed" mold that was plunged into salted crushed ice to set— hence "Muscovite".
    What the fuck.

    They talk strangely (really, REALLY strangely), and ruin the reputation of the whole country with their Lederhosen and Schuhplattler.

    Also, when I see 'von', I can only think of honorific names or titles. "Sir! The French have gone over the top, and Baron von Administratoren's troops are surrounded! What are your orders?"



  •  I'm not a proponent of making everyone local admin, but we've sufficient clients who are adamant they need to be local admin (and no explaining from us can convince them otherwise, and we've tried...) to not have done this a number of times myself.

     

    At the end of they day they foot the bill every time we have to reinstall their computer, we install anti virus and anti malware software and the firewall in the DSL router is blocking SMTP outbound. Sure, we could deny their request but then they will just take their business to a competitor.

     

    Luckily this is just a small minority of our clients.

    Well obviously they need to install itunes, FF, AIM, Azureus, and LimeWire.  Why would you deny them that?

    I work at an insanely huge company and our standard is that all users are admins of all computers.  We have local desktop techs at, or a short drive from, each of our locations.  We simply arm all of the desktop techs with a spindle of re-image disks.  Re-imaging broken computers is much less work than centrally deploying all software.  At last count we support about a thousand application across the company.

    The process of installing non-standard software is interesting.  You fill out an online form to request the software, and the form goes into a jumble of systems to get paid for and the media acquired.  Eventually, you get an email telling you to install the software your damn self, along with either a link to the media on the network or a tracking number for the media that has been mailed to you.  If you need help, call the help desk.  They'll remote in and install it for you if you prefer.

    So 100,000 heads, which, at 8% of your body weight, would correspond to 8000 people?
    Why would you hire heads anyway?



  •  Actually it's a smart move. If you hire only heads, you don't need to build shitters, because the asses stay at home. Great savings.



  • Not to mention how much you prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.

    We simply arm all of the desktop techs with a spindle of re-image disks.
    I hope that when you say "spindle" you mean "booklet." Spindles, aside from being a pain in the ass to use regularly (imagine if the disc you want is at the bottom), don't protect discs very well if they're transported a lot.

    It's quite economical if you also hire head shrinkers.

    He probably means spindle.

    I mean, there's no way the IT staff would be that large unless it was completely chock-full of WTF. In another 5-6 years, they might hear about USB memory keys, or those small USB portable hard drives.

    But I agree with you: every time I see somebody using a spindle to store disks, it boggles my mind. It's like a disk scratching machine, I can't imagine a worse way to preserve data. (Maybe tying the disks to rabid wolverines?)

    I think France is just pissed that people found out French Fries aren't actually French, so it's going around talking shit about other countries.  Next the assholes will be claiming Danish pastries don't come from Denmark, German shepherds are actually from Spain and that The Netherlands' single contribution to society, the Dutch Rudder, isn't actually Dutch at all.
