So over at the day job, it looks like we want to upgrade the firmware for the RAID controller on our web server, a Dell PowerEdge. So I poke around support.dell.com and find the file. Great. I'll use wget to download it to the server...
(Or to a server where you're running a web browser. Do you know what should happen to someone who runs something as insecure as a browser, on a server machine? Bad, bad things.)
So I have to download it to my home box, then sftp it over to the server. A stupid annoyance that would be easily avoided by competent web site design; and so congratulations Dell, you're the winner of this weeks' coveted Sirius Cybernetics Corporation "Go Stick Your Head in a Pig" award.
