From The Economist:
"The euro zone is showing the symptoms of an internal balance-of-payments crisis, with self-fulfilling runs on countries, because at bottom that is the nature of its troubles. And such crises put extraordinary pressure on exchange-rate pegs, no matter how permanent policymakers claim them to be."
Differing economic performance (policy, productivity, industrial production, consumption) has an effect on the currency exchange rate; I am not sure if I agree that the Euro is just an “exchange-rate peg”, since I don’t know enough, but it makes sense that currency depreciation is something that needs to happen but can’t happen because of the Euro.
Ergo - the Euro is dead?
I was reading Slate’s review of this week’s Community episode… and it reminded me why this show is doomed to not last.
Maybe it is too complicated or too smart for its own sake; I love most of the episodes and I don’t get many of the references they make… somehow the dynamics and the characters are so well defined that even when you don’t get all the references, you still enjoy every line.
I just hope that along with 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, it keeps going for a couple more seasons. I don’t include The Office in my list anymore, and it is not because Michael isn’t there, it is just that, humm, it’s just not as smart or alluring as it used to be.
The identity model in IIS 7.5 changed, so to make the application work correctly make sure:
1 - You have Kernel Mode Authentication enabled,
2 - The IIS Apppool<<your app pool name» account has permissions to the folder where you app resides (read). Note, this is a special account that resides on the local computer, and the account is created after you start the APP Pool for the first time.
3 - If you’re going to debug locally (for development of course), make sure you do the DisableStrictNamesChecking and BackConnectionHostNames changes in your registry.
4 - Obvious, but anonymous authentication needs to be disabled.
5 - Recommendation: keep integrated mode on for the application pool, the application pool user default of “ApplicationPoolIdentity” is a must.
Use the “TEST” button in the “Basic Settings” dialog on the website you are configuring to make sure it works.
Accessing sites with Windows Authentication (locally) (i.e. in the same server, remote desktop)
