    They exist.
     
    To be honest the headline kind of reads like "nasa hacked by keyboard" or "nasa hacked by microsd card"

    No, but apparently with a Raspberry Pi you can.

    tl;dr employees got lazy and didn't follow protocol because it was "too hard". So instead of proactively working to get the underlying issue resolved they simply didn't do their job.

    As a result the organization was hacked.

    Ah Pi(e), is there anything you can't do?

    Raspberry Pi is a normal computer at the end of the day. It runs Linux or Windows. You connect a keyboard and mouse (or touch screen)
    You can replace this with anything. "Dell computer helped enabled an April 1028 hack...", "HP computer helped enabled an April 1028 hack..." "Custom built computer helped enabled an April 1028 hack..."....
     
    That said, there seem that the IT manager is horrible at its job. That person has the responsibility to ensure that its employee has the adequate tools to perform their job. Having each of them, their own, not sync, Excel sheet of inventory shows complete lack of proper tools. If the manager and its employee are too old, in the sense that they live in their comfort zone, don't seek to better their work environment and tooling, then you have a big problem right there. This is also a common issue when you have a team constituted of exclusively senior roles, and not juniors and intermediates who tend to be more active in learning and bringing to attention better ways to do things (it is a human trait that, for most of us, we like to stay in a comfort zone).

    Cyber security just isn’t routine enough because everyone views it as an extra hassle or nuisance. Should be the top priority. Side not sounds like what mr robot did

    so this means that NASA needs to fire some people. However this is scary because people are careless in a lot of sitchouations.

    If it works fine otherwise you can quiet these boxes easily by putting reisistors on the fans or by getting quieter fans for it.

    I have an MD1200 and can confirm, they're as loud as jet engines - easily twice as loud as my T410 or x3650 M4 servers.
     
    As others have said, you can try modding the fans with resistors.
     
    Otherwise, there's not really a good solution for a "true" purpose built DAS, since they're usually all loud, and the good ones are super expensive (MD1200's go for $400+ CAD on eBay on the low end typically - with most of the listings being closer to $700+ CAD).
     
    Creating a custom "DAS" using a Server chassis like this is probably the "best" way to create a good quiet chassis.
     
    I've considered replacing my MD1200 with a custom built one - but the MD1200 is just so goddamn bullet proof.

    If you want to get very quiet the only option is to make a custom JBOD using a Supermicro chassis and external to internal SAS HBAs otherwise modding standard disk enclosures is all you can do, none of them are quiet.

    This somewhat reminds me of how a few years ago a group of prostitutes in Australia successfully petitioned Target [Australia] to remove GTA V from sale because they claimed the game was setting a bad example for children and was not in line with Target's family friendly values.
     
    If you don't like a game; don't play it. That simple.

    It's even more bizarre writing an article of underpresentation based on a 40 min gameplay video. The cry to be noticed is through the roof.
    But then again, RPS has been especially garbage in the last year so not unexpected.

    That's great and all, don't really care much since people complaining about politically correct is quite mainstream and the best thing you can do about it is ignore it, what I do want to know is: Will they address this?

    Last week, gaming news site Rock Paper Shotgun ran an article written by a gaming journalist who is transgender and who emphasizes pronouns on their Twitter profile, who saw the depiction of minorities in Cyberpunk 2077, including "transhumans", black people, and Latinos as uninspired and as reinforcing stereotypes and racism. The author also threw in some swipes at Cyberpunk's gunplay in the same breath, just to make sure readers didn't miss the fact that the article has an objective of taking down the game by any means possible.
     
    I personally suspect the author's criticism is disingenuous and basically made to swipe at CDPR and Cyberpunk in hopes of causing damage to the company and the game's sales because Cyberpunk 2077 wasn't the personal soap box platform the RPS author wanted it to be for transgenders and other groups of people, with game characters' attitude toward modifying themselves in Cyberpunk being the trigger for it all.
     
    Well, the Rock Paper Shotgun article caused a sizable stir from commentators about whether Cyberpunk 2077 was plagued by racist ignorance and cultural insensitivity. One comment made in a reddit thread featuring a video interview with Cyberpunk's creator, Mike Pondsmith, summarized the comments on the RPS article like this:
     
    That comment sparked a response from Mike Pondsmith, himself, who categorically and succinctly refuted each of those assertions being made by commentators and also in the RPS article.
     
    The response made by Mike (who, in case you didn't know, is himself a black person) reads:
     
    So, Mike Pondsmith says the critics are wrong and are interpreting things in a way that fuels their agendas rather than how they actually are supposed to be understood.
     
     
    Another article I read said it's unacceptable to call a gang of (allegedly) mostly-black people The Animals when there's a history of negative association. There was also some criticism over an in-game poster showing a chick with a dick:
     
    Deeply transphobic ad in ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ represents everything wrong with cyberpunk
    Cyberpunk 2077 art criticized as transphobic is meant to reflect corporate exploitation, says the artist
     
     
    I kind of see the RPS article as the author thinking that the world and everyone in it is to be judged based on whether they're using every opportunity as a soap box to further that author's own agenda - including when the author's agenda is unrelated to the projects people are working on. Like, as though the RPS author thinks their personal goal overrides everyone else's and the purposes of other people's work.
     
    I also noticed that the Rock Paper Shotgun article's author takes aim at Cyberpunk 2077's presentation of "transhumans" and black people as allegedly being "unimaginative stereotypes", but then also takes aim at the game's presentation for the opposite, alleging the "clumsy and inauthentic presentation of a Latino character". So, some characters are supposed to be less stereotypical, while others are supposed to be more stereotypical? Or, are the author's attacks on the game disingenuous?
