and blew a little crater out of every NAND flash chip in the SSD
I have an old phone line modem that's got a nice huge crater blown in the main chip. Turns out, lighting struck the phone line and tried to enter the computer via the modem. Somehow, nothing else was damaged, but it left quite the impressive scorch mark on a piece of metal on the other side of the modem. Needless to say, the modem did not work properly after that...
It occurs to me that I have a ten year old daughter (here's one I prepared earlier!). And yes, it's true that she would use "nobody told me that" as an excuse for not knowing something that she hadn't been told. Of course, so would I. I guess that means I too am no better at my job than a 10-year-old.
Or is there perhaps more to my job than merely being able to divine the unknown through some flash of mystical inspiration? Huh, turns out there is. So I guess I'd better stop wasting time here and get back to it
You know who wouldn't use that excuse?
Status: Wow, Steam sure eats a lot of CPU while downloading...
That shit better be compressed to frick!
It also gets unnatural download speeds. Nuking the ability to download anything else in the process...
I've got VMs on there that will cry bloody murder if they go down for 5ms.
Would they really cry if they're down though?
Oh not while they're down of course. But they'll trigger downtime detection and email me when they come back...
Status: First time installing Server 2016...there is no easy way to disable automatic updates and reboots. You have to be fist-fucking me? For a server OS? Fuck you Microsoft. Do you really think it is a good idea to do this on a server OS? You fucking retards. You fucking idiots. Goddamn it, this fucking earworm you fucking morons have going is just too much.
Uh, FWIW on default settings I haven't had Server 16 reboot on me yet. It gives me a "update pls" nagscreen every time I log on, but it hasn't forced a reboot. It's been a while too - I know because I've got VMs on there that will cry bloody murder if they go down for 5ms.
