Security Through Stupidity
I purchased a Dell server today for work, through our account representative at Dell. At the end of the order process, just before confirmation, the Dell representative said:
Federal law requires that we ask what will this server be used for?I asked, incredulously, “Why the hell does the federal government care?” to which the Dell representative replied “PATRIOT Act”.
I certainly feel a lot safer knowing that terrorist are on their honor to tell the truth when buying servers from Dell.
