No, in IT it's called staging.  Beta is long since done.  Production is getting pushed now as the primary client has agreed to migration. 

The users have already had the opportunity for input to service desk and their regional IT managers.  If they did not prepare for the cut over since 2007, then it's their problem now.  We're not here to fix stupid, just restore the system to functional and working so everyone can use it instead of the current situation.  Too many users with admin privileges on the infrastructure. 

If anyone gets in your way, permission to pull their privileges from the system is given.  They can sit on the bench and wait with everyone else.  Allow them to keep web by controlled proxy filter and mail, nothing else.  The toys, all of them, are getting taken back by IT because the place is a mess after running headless and clueless for too long.

Any requests to the system can be put into the service desk and and reviewed with the SDLC or regional functional CAB groups for dependency analysis to fit into the established baseline infrastructure under the following conditions:

  • If it actually makes sense in purpose that everyone can use it,
  • It's not duplication of effort by another group (otherwise go talk to them and help them),
  • The change is a REAL service improvement and not paper tiger bullshit.

This will be forklifted into place and that's that.

May the cache be there when we need it, and flushed when it is full.  Fear not, ASCII a question and recieve an ANSI.  For it is said that an ACK in turn is given a SYN by the 7 layers of OSI.  Let us file share by IRCC with xmodem resume with the extra bit given in 7n2 with the direct console connection given.  We ask for no paraelle when a serial connection is only needed to the great router.  It takes and gives with a ping reply.  And temporary files live on in our hearts.

I have been an engineer/techie/chief cook/bottle washer/jack of trades for a long time. 

My last gig I was let go for 'technical competence', pointed out the flaws in the presented infrastructure and the undocumented dependencies plus gave solutions to correct the gaps.  Therefore I got fired for knowing my business and their business.  Last I heard the place is an accident prone nightmare now, like all the luck got sucked out of the place.

Right now however; I am gloriously underemployed just like everyone else in the people's paradise our 'leaders' proclaim.  My idle hands however are never idle for long.  Paid or unpaid, an Engineer always finds something to tinker with that needs fixing or new tools required for future projects.

"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them against you, you may know that your society is doomed." - Ayn Rand

I am updating my skillset to more traditional methods of production. IT is being overrun by the unproductive fascist food that dealing with government graft requires.

Anyone have any experience with goats? Perhaps Alpacas?

We have gone from checks "bouncing" to big banks "bouncing."  Does this mean that Chinese expatriates will no longer have access to the millions in their private accounts that are needed to buy co-ops in Manhattan, as Chinese authorities clamp capital export controls in the China Construction Bank's software?  If that is the case, the Donald is doomed.

China Construction Bank (CCB) is a big beast. It is the country's second largest bank, valued at over $200bn (£118bn) with profits of close to $5bn (£2.95bn) a quarter. It accounts for more than 12% of all loans and deposits in China and is a major investor in property developments.

It is feeling its way into Western markets and has just been named as the first Chinese bank designated for offshore renminbi trading in London - a shot in the arm for the City's aspirations to be the major centre outside Hong Kong for dealing in the currency. That opens up new trading opportunities for UK and Chinese firms as deals can now be settled in London in local currency.


The cost of propping up China’s banks in the event of a financial crisis have nearly quadrupled in the past three years to $526.2 billion, the largest of any banking system, according to the latest analysis by the Volatility Laboratory at New York University’s Stern School of Business .


It may come as no surprise that China’s biggest banks top the list of the riskiest to the system — the bigger the come, the harder they fall and the more money it would take to prop them back up. Bank of China tops the chart, followed by the Agricultural Bank of China, China Construction Bank and the Industrial & Commercial Bank of China.

V-Lab’s figures don’t suggest the likelihood of a crisis, however, just the risk one poses to a country’s financial system. As a percentage of its GDP, moreover, the cost to keep China’s banking sector afloat seems less onerous. On this ranking, China places 10th behind a group led by France, the United Kingdom and Japan.

That has led a number of economists to conclude that China can easily mop up any financial crisis, using central government funds to bail out both banks and heavily indebted local governments and prevent the kind of balance-sheet recession from which the U.S. and EU are still trying to recover.

But the IMF and World Bank have both warned that China needs to rein in lending and promote reform or face an increasing risk that it may have to test that hypothesis.

you're asking the wrong question.

the question you should be asking: was ccb victim of a cyber attack?

if yes, then who was behind it and why?  what's the message being sent?

if no, then ccb's cto/cio might want to start "pursuing opportunities outside the company" and/or the application/infrastructure team(s) responsible for this particular business process.



what sources are 100% solid?

This is one of the ways the banking scum can control exactly who it falls on. When they crash it. They will also halt trading for regular folks. HFT will take care of the rest.

 We are only gonna get one chance to pull the plug and we better do it before they do. Because they are going to pull the plug on us without effecting thier power. The only way to be sure is for us to pull all the plugs and make it all stop.

The reason being that we have an obligation to protect our customers, and to minimise the opportunity for financial crime.

The black market is the REAL market.

Manipulation of prices of gold, silver and rates of interest  is a big fucking crime.

The bank bailouts are crime, central banks are financial crime and fraud as well as the fractional reserves banking system.

Please someone tell the all the bank employees that they are working for an organized and globally protected mafia most of them have no idea about.

 If cyber warfare and cyber-attacks are not on your list of modern worries, it is time you put them on. Either could make your life much more difficult or in a worse case scenario end it. A series of high-profile events since 2010 has highlighted the increasing and multifaceted threat of cyber-attacks.

U.S. cyber-security policy continues to evolve to meet these challenges, but critical gaps remain, including the incomplete protection of digital infrastructure vital to national security, such as power grids and financial networks. On a personal level having your accounts hacked, or having someone steal your identity can turn your life upside down. More on this subject in the article below.
