First meeting with my new manager. Death by Powerpoint. Kill me. Please.
Lucky You lol....
Oh no, all these disks don't seem to work oh well such a shame.....
They wouldn't work if I was asked to test them all.
Stolen from the Programming Jokes thread.
I hate this.
If you're buying 4x$3.5k laptops per month and have to put it on a credit card rather than an account* you should get the business to provide you with a company card - not just borrow one from someone else and hope they have enough $$ on it to go through, and definitely don't put that much on your personal card.
* seriously at that sort of volume you should have no problem getting an account set up with a VAR.
What's taking you an hour to do, and can you automate it? From your previous posts it sounds like the company is expanding quite decently, so automating account setup would be wise, no need to worry about short notice aside from hardware wise, and just make it well known that hardware purchases take X time (include time to get spending approval if required), if people don't give you the required notice to get hardware, it's on them.
Was going to post this, although time escaped me, the best part is the several references to System Of A Down, obligatory love Serj Tankian:
Day 2: The curse of the never-ending floppy stack. Somehow, there seem to be more than yesterday. Oh well, another podcast, and more coffee.
WARNING NON PC COMPLIANT STATEMENT READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
LOL Systemd programmers are downsies.
Again for those that missed.
Poettering fuck off you dumbass...
Optus business actually send single page proposals using powerpoint
Stop it, I'm being indoctrinated at the moment and you're invading my safe space.
Need to do something in linux? The Red Hat answer is <something>ctl. Nice and simple. Screw learning the interfaces file, because networkmanager. And soforth
cli interface is not the issue, journald has always been an issue.
Also, windows world is just as fragmented at the cli.
EDIT - logging has been done nicely for 30+ years by syslog and logger, journald adds complexity and incompatibility when run in binary mode.
If I wanted to see the world and get fucked by my manager as well I'd join the navy, which is a funny coincidence because my last boss was a US Navy vet and he did a whole lot of fucking, thankfully only over con calls for me.
Seriously though, grass is greener - I'd prefer to do what you're doing right now.
Only when idjits don't follow the rules
Rant; When spoken, Australian mobile numbers should always be given in 4-3-3
Oh, Four, One, Nine, <slight pause>, Nine, Six, Six, <slight pause>, Six, Seven, Eight
shits all over
Oh, Four, One, Double Nine, Triple Six, Seven, Eight
you'd hate my number then, a double and two triples.
Right people! The boss has left for the day, now I'm eating a nectarine in shorts and a t-shirt at my desk.
Looking up for the weekend!
I never liked that way of saying double and triple in repeating numbers.
This is the one thing Americans do better, no confusion, and using phonetic alphabets.
A double and two tripples could work, as long as its
ABXX-YYY-ZZZ and not AXXY-YYC-CCB
And I won't hate the number, I'll hate the person giving it to me.
I'm also, not sure who to hate... the person the put slashes in group names, or the people that whose tools, don't correctly deal with slashes in group names
