    I found another story to keep you happy. ;-)

    Apparently someone brought down a corporate storage array by connecting
    to it from a system running Lion. Think about that one - one unwitting
    user bringing down a vital bit of kit which serves the whole company.

    EMC had a patch available back in March, but their own advice to
    customers recommends a 6 month patch cycle, and someone got caught out.

    I can't remember where I read it. There's a less dramatic version here:


    "El Reg has been told there is a problem with Mac OS X Lion clients
    accessing the Celerra filer array. The NAS head goes offline and
    failover doesn't kick in. An EMC patch is available and fixes the

    It poses an interesting question. I know I haven't a clue what kind of
    hardware might be in use by a corporate wide file share.

    Now back to Adobe. They may feel justified in pointing the finger at
    Apple after Steve Jobs criticised Flash Player, but to me at least they
    don't seem to be making any real effort to keep their own products up to
    date. It's not long ago they were bitching about having to support 64
    bit browsers on other platforms, and indeed I had a battle on my hands
    installing the latest version of Flash on my Windows system last week.

    They aren't very helpful on the Linux side either: they have a beta
    Flash Player for that, but they give you not idea where to put it,
    simply telling you to look it up yourself. With the large variety of
    Linux flavours out there they may feel justified, but they could easily
    give more of clue and don't.
