And another thing.

I would like to express my extreme displeasure at sites that use illegible Captcha pictures as a means of self-defence, followed by a "prove you're human" question, then use an IP address blocking service to double-check you're not a spammer, and then finally declare that you are one, and deny you access.

I'm talking about you, FreeNAS forums.


Oh, and while I'm whinging about FreeNAS.  Guess which free NAS device's web interface does not play well with Internet Explorer?  You guessed it, FreeNAS.  It needs Firefox to work properly.  Now, I know that the open source community is absolutely full of open source zealots and people who by their nature hate Microsoft and all its products.  But, really.  Face facts:  IE is the default browser with a Windows OS.  Most every machine on this planet runs Windows.  Accept reality.  Fix your fucked GUI.


Oh!  One more whinge!  Why did the FreeNAS AD integration break in the first place?  Because, having asked an ambiguous question about hostnames, FreeNAS then creates a computer account in AD using that hostname.  FreeNAS doesn't give a single fuck if that computer account already exists.  It just overwrites it.  One little fucking LDAP query could've prevented that DC destruction.
