The main cost of having computers for most companies lies not in

security fix is announced.
I'd be grateful for any input on this. I can picture waking up to
find that every machine I administrate is simultaneously *#!$%ed one
This would be the necessary result of complete automatization,
That's the nub - is it the inevitable outcome?
Did you think about remote access? All administrative tasks on a
FreeBSD system can be done via ssh from a text console. Thus you
wouldn't have to be present personally, but keep full control of things.
Yes, that's what I normally do.
