I've been doing computer security, networking, and system administration for a living for over a quarter century. Along the way, I've done everything from help build the (at the time) 3rd fastest supercomputer in the world to helping create computer security "best practices" guidelines for the computer security industry (see http://www.cisecurity.org).
Anybody else think we should have separate categories for those two, so those of us wanting to answer *other* stuff don't have to wade through the "Is <foo> down?" clutter?2 AnswersInternet1 decade ago
So when Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Messenger crash, the users would have someplace to go look rather than 43 zillion people ask on Yahoo Answers? (And yes, I do systems admin for a living - if my site can keep track of 2,000 servers in a room, Yahoo should be able to keep track of what they have),
NAGIOS, Cricket, BigBrother, Openview, and all the other usual suspect... I'm sure they're in use, all that's left is to hook it up to a status webpage. :)2 AnswersMy Yahoo1 decade ago
