M$ Patch tags pirated Windows Boxes

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Meat Plow, Apr 25, 2006.

  1. From this discussion, that seems to be the score over here in Leftpondia
    as well.
    I've wondered about that. Serial is Good. Always has been.
    I'd think so too.
    Yeah, I just proposed that idea (with less detail) in another post in the
    thread.
    Sorry 'bout that. :)
    I think I read something about that one, too. NetZero? Freeserve?
    :)

    If you're legit, you shouldn't see anything!

    If not,click on your Windows Update and you should see the *new*
    High-Priority Updates, one of which is *Windows Genuing Advantage
    Notification (KB905474). Install it then you'll have your nagulator
    (hehe).

    Ah; NetZero was the name. There used to be an ISP in the UK called
    'Freeserve', who pioneered easy dial-up internet access here. They were
    taken over by a dutch (?) firm 'Wanadoo'.
    In case anyone's interested,
    <http://www.ukfsn.org/> (the one I use) and <http://www.aaisp.net.uk/>.

    But they don't have to. The setups are all done on the client's end. All they do
    is install the antenna and make sure it's getting to the receiver correctly.
    They'll do the in-house setup, if it's 98, or XP, but not if it's anything but.

    "Oh, well. It makes more business for me, I guess."

    My ISP doesn't actually say they support linux on their website (just the
    usual windwoes & MACs), however in the support forum there is a /very/
    active linux /discussion/ section. Interesting to note too, that some of
    the ISP's support staff participating in the forum, use various linux
    distros themselves as a matter of choice. :)

  7. I was thinking about phone droids, not onsite installes. My bad.

    Well, it used to be thought that enough monkeys with enough typwriters would
    write Shakespeare, Usenet has proved this to be untrue.

    Oh, I actually enjoy talking to mine. There are actually some that have clue -
    although they still haven't gotten the fact that even if you're sending UBE to
    all your own customers and no one else, it's still spam.

    Don't knock egyt ISP's. Like you, I've found them to be a good source of
    income.

    .... another one helping to fund FOSS: "In addition, profits from
    uklinux.net go to promoting free or open-source projects." :))

    (UKFSN say "In addition to offering all of the following services, we
    promise that all of the money raised by this operation will be used to
    fund Free Software in the UK").

    I have my machine set to automatically d'load the latest updates, so I can't
    understand why I am not getting this "Nagulator" But while it stays like
    this I won't complain,

    Just when I think, "Surely this person has reached and encapsulates the
    limits of Internet tedium" you go and push the boundary even further. In
    future, kindly proofread your posts before assaulting unsuspecting readers
    of this message board with a litany of misspellings, egregious grammatical
    errors, and other verbal atrocities. Clearly, you have lost your fingertip
    grip on reality and have descended into an abyss of irreversible lunacy. Are
    you always this ignorant, or are you making a special effort today? Anyway,
    who was talking to you or even taking you under consideration? As Abba Eban
    so aptly said: "His ignorance is encyclopedic." Most repair manuals are far
    more interesting than you, and far less turgid to read. You are the kind of
    person who, when one first meets you, one doesn't like you. But when one
    gets to know you better, one hates you. Maybe you wouldn't come across as
    such a jellyfish-sucking mental midget if that pimple on your ass hadn't
    turned out to be a brain tumor; if your weren't so fat that all the
    restaurants in town have signs that say: "Maximum Occupancy: 80 Patrons OR
    You.", or if you didn't have a face that is registered as a biological
    weapon. Who am I kidding? You would. Anyway, I'm not really good with fools,
    but a friend who is good with fools wrote something down for me. Oh, yeah,
    "Shut your cake-hole, stupid!"

    Obhuh: Huh?

    I for one would think that ISPs would welcome Linux, as it would reduce
    their support costs for such things as:

    "Help, my [censored] machine's been infested with malware!"

    "Uh...how come my modem link is so busy?"

    "I'm serving *WHAT*???"

    "Hello...yes this is <mumble mumble>...I'm sorry, I've
    never heard of Shakira....? Erm...lemme check....oh...uh...I'll
    have to get back to you as to how that file got there heh heh I
    don't want to get sued...What's that? They're ... oh, yeah,
    there's a limo outside. That's ... not a limo...? *knock knock*
    Excuse me a moment... *click*....*brrrrrrrrrrr...*"

    Then again, there's a fair number of issues with a Linux installation,
    starting with which GUI desktop one is using (KDE or Gnome). But
    once set up...malware? What's that? Oh, I might get a poke at port
    445 on occasion.

    (For the record: my recent reconnection to DSL included a modem
    with a Web interface.)

    Followups to COLA exclusively.

    Did you MANUALLY go to Update to see if the *new* nagulator has/has
    not been installed? First look at your update history. If nothing
    after 4-24 it's not yet installed. I too had auto updates *on* and
    noticed in the taskbar *upgrade in process*. But nothing happened.
    On going to MS Update manually the cute *WGA Notification (KB905474)
    is waiting to be installed. Trigger the install and then you'll be
    up-to-date....with a nagulator (LOL).

    It isn't being released in all locales just yet though, so you may not be
    supposed to be getting it.

    I noticed that when it did the update yesterday, it wouldn't be denied its
    restart. I clicked Restart Later, as I normally would if I'm in the middle
    of something, but every few minutes it would pop up asking whether to
    restart. The dialog had a timer that would count down 5 minutes and then
    restart anyway. If I'd been away from my PC for a few minutes right at that
    time, it would have rebooted even though I'd told it previously that I'd
    restart later.

    It is further alleged that on or about Wed, 26 Apr 2006 10:16:44 GMT,
    in alt.os.windows-xp, the queezy keyboard of
    spewed the following:

    | wrote in message
