You also wish he would open Minecraft?

I still remember when I purchased 10 licenses and started giving them out. I wanted to spread it specifically because he promised the community he would open the game when he was done with it.

He's clearly done with it. Judging by who he sold it to, he probably just wants it to die at this point. To be fair, few people would consider their own honor and integrity to be worth more than $2.5B...

I get it, that Notch is freaked out about being a head of a community of
people when he really just wants to program more games. But... Microsoft...
gads...

Everyone just knows Microsoft will fuck this up. Everyone hopes otherwise,
but they're a huge business with no sense of maintaining a gaming community
whatsoever. They were, possibly, the oddest choice if you care about that
community.

But, in the end, we'll see. Microsoft is apparently trying to change their
culture. Maybe this is what they need to accomplish that. I dunno. I just
don't have any faith in them.

I wish Notch had found a way to just open-source the game and be done with
it, but I guess he wanted the money.

Any recommendations for backup tools on MS Small Business Servers? The builtin service sucks big time, it does not like the external HD and it flooded the SAN on the NAS.

I need at least one daily copy of the data, incremental. Preferably freeware. I have searched the intarwebz and I did not like what I found. :(

Freeware?

I don't know. I've never investigated freeware backup solutions for Windows.

Otherwise, Symantec has BackupExec, which I've used in the past (admittedly because I was in the company that sold it in those days). It does a very good job.

I guess the folks at h-soft are thinking that Minecraft is going to be the upgrade to Minesweeper.

That moment when you reboot Hitlersoft Windoze, need to get something done quickly, and are presented with the lovely grey screen "Please do not power off or unplug your machine. Spending the next three hours installing update 1 of 2345893582974..."

yes, definitely; had that several times. boot over to winsux just to participate in some lync conference call... and it starts updating until the conf is mostly over.

since then I tried rebooting the box to winsux the day before... and waited the hour.

but... once I removed oracle BTRFS the vm with windows ran fast enough to do the confcalls, so no rebooting anymore.

anyways, glad I don't have these problems anymore.

And another thing !

Real operating systems tell you what they're doing while they boot up.

Windows Phone Server 2012 just shows the stupid 2-D Windows logo. It doesn't even animate it.

What, no "Hi mom" messages?  I zone out and view them all in a daze like viewing the screen in The Matrix movie and just perk up for the interesting bits.  Don't yet have 2012 in production, but that sounds less interesting than the installing update 12 of 20102120 of 2008 server.

As an OS boots, I like to watch the messages for anything that stands out.
They can hint to other problems.

Heh. Then nothing beats linux, where you can watch the boot process, one line of the script at a time!!!

If they want a pretty splash screen that's fine, but:

1. Make the ESC key work to switch from the splash to an actual boot progress screen

2. *Animate* the damn thing so we know it didn't hang!

Or allow you to go to a different vt to watch the "hi mom" messages.  I could live with that.

As if a more verbose windows server boot screen would shed any light on any problem....

"Unpredicted Error in Module 0x000666823892 due to malformed 0x3993493934. Please reboot or contact your system administrator."

 

And of course the error code is generated randomly and will never be the same, even if you reboot and it hangs at the same place. Or it is non-random, but also without meaning, so nobody else on the internet got it. Or, if they had it, 12 people will give you 25 explanations and "solutions", which are all garbage and do not work in your case. They can stick their verbosity up their arses until they choke on it.

Nobody did crash screens quite like Commodore. When the Amiga crashed, you got that famous "Guru Meditation" box.

Now that was a random hex address I didn't mind seeing.

Instead of all the bitching and moaning about Micro$lop, why not just switch to linux and be *done* with it!?!?!?

I know, I know, I know.

"I can't do that because I simply *must* be able to use [insert your favorite WinBlowz-based slopware here].

Solution:

1. install your favorite flavor of linus
2. once up and running on-net, grab VirtualBox from the oracle site and install that.
3. install WinBlowz in a virtual box.
4. Done. You now have the best of operating systems and the ability to visit Micro$lop Hell whenever you want - without the worry of Micro$lop trashing the machine. If that happens, it is a VIRTUAL BOX - just delete and reinstall.

Any program that only runs on WinBlowz isn't worth running.

That having been said, my "daily driver" is configured exactly as you describe.
