    This_guy1998 got a reaction from leadeater in An Open Letter to Linus Tech Tips from The Passthrough Post   
    As a user of both Linux and Windows, I think it would be common sense that everything may not work on the first try depending on what guides you use (I literally just had to nuke my Ubuntu install a few months back because I had screwed it up messing around with software and stuff). I use a mix of KVM (I've just started with messing around with advanced stuff like passthrough), VMWare (mostly because I use VMWare Workstation on my Windows PCs), and VirtualBox on my Ubuntu machine.
     
    Recently I had to use a OS X VM image (which are available online) for an Operating Systems class and guess what? I was one of few people in that class that got the VM image supplied to work on my Windows PC (wouldn 't work on my Linux box), but that was after modifying the image (as per instructions for this image) and even then it was painfully slow to do the tasks required (I was running this on a NVME SSD, plenty of RAM and CPU too).
     
    Since hackintoshs are hit or miss thats why I won't use them and since Apple won't do Mac Clones nor have user fixable computers anymore, I guess I will never have a PC with MacOS (I really want to switch to MacOS because of Windows 10).

    Good. One warning, most universities have very very mediocre career services. Don't ask me how I know. Same thing with people offering advice. Question the quality of just about everything (including what I write).

    Here, employers have no choice. You want to stay open on a Holiday? Cool. Pay your employees time-and-a-half. Outside of retail/restaurants, most businesses will close on stat holidays in Canada.

    In Canada, for a Statutory (Mandatory) Holiday, you either:
     
    1. Get the day off, or
    2. Get paid 1.5x your normal wage
     
    Each province has their own set of Statutory Holidays - but they pretty much all have the same 6-8 base holidays, with minor variations here and there. For example, In BC, Remembrance Day is a Statutory Holiday. Whereas where I live, in Ontario, it's a non-statutory holiday. Very few (if any) places are closed, and no one gets bonus pay.
     
    On the flip side, Ontario is the only province that observes Boxing Day as a Statutory Holiday.

    YOU GUY GET OFF FOR HOLIDAYS???
     
    I say that because it still blows my mind you guys are required to be off on standard holidays. Here in the US the only people that are get off for standard holidays are government employees, banks (I guess because technically the FDIC is closed on holidays), and usually people that work education (if the school or such is closed). The private sector isn't required to be off (this varies by state). Working retail for the last 2.5 years has ruined holidays for me (I may be off of school, but then that typically means I am working) (my employer is only closed on Christmas).
     
    It also blows my mind that maturity leave is so long up there too.

    This_guy1998 reacted to colonel_mortis in why does the LTT forum have Google and Amazon trackers on it?   
    The Amazon tracker is, as other have noted, for the Amazon ads. It is only included when an Amazon ad is displayed on the page (this means it's not included for Bronze/Silver/Gold contributors, who get no ads).
    The Google tracker is Google Analytics, and is used to monitor how the site is being used, to give a quantitative basis for future improvements.
    For what it's worth, per our Privacy Policy, we don't sell, trade or rent any of your data to third parties. Information that we gather is only used internally, for monitoring how the site is used and making it better.
    Amazon does collect some data, as governed by their Privacy Policy, and Amazon ads do help to offset the substantial costs of running the forum.

    You can also search for this:
     
     
    And once you connect and stuff you should get this in your Explorer's Quick Access with two OneDrive Options (top is my school's, the bottom is personal):
    Just keep in mind that anything in your school's OneDrive the school can have access to and they don't have to guarantee storage.  I have a tb but will never fill.

    Currently 53.3% of the internet agrees with you

     
    To me it was mostly bad next to the one important thing they brought up which was mental health and such things.
     
    HOWEVER later in the video they disclosed that the comment section should control rewind, if that is true, then guess what. The internet made rewind bad this year not YouTube ?
     
    at 5 minutes in I personally thing she underplayed what actually happened, maybe by googles request?

    Another problem in this case even the employees are/were owed $134,000 CAD according to their trustee https://www.bowragroup.com/bowra-netlink-computer
    The law hasn't caught up to the times sadly for computer data. I work for a major big box retailer here in the US while I'm in college and I know if the data from their main system (this is one telnet based program that probably runs on a mainframe (they are moving to a GUI for parts of it, but I got a feeling that it still uses this system as a backbone) mostly used everything from customer and store to employee data) were to get leaked they would be in deep water (don't ask how they have employees login any part of system there, it's bad but they claim it's safe, probably because of some of the illiterale employees is why it's super "simple" to login). This system has been continuously used since the early 1990s, and I'm surprised it hasn't been hacked yet (considering they have been laying off people from their ISD (even though they are trying to become an online company) for the last bit. What I"ve learned from a professor is that even with low level access to any system damage can be done.

    The bad thing about when a company goes into Brankruptcy (in this case very quickly), the servers are usually the last thing to be flipped off because they are needed to run the business while they are closing. Also NCIX couldn't afford to pay a systems administrator to wipe (or transfer to the trustees) the system after they closed. This is a common but sad reality.

    NCIX password. Retailers will never see your Paypal password.

    However, if you've used the same password for multiple services then you will need to change it.

    Because the law isn't caught up to this day and age. Plus who are you going to sue if the company went under and supposedly the owner might of left the contiant. Essentially the trustees responsibility is to liquidate assets (both physical and non-physical), pay off debt, and then make sure overall the business is wound down (things like acting as HR, basic Customer service, and such).
