  1. * internet issues, slow speeds, packet loss, etc ... *

     

    Me : spend 2h diagnosing my network, changed the modem and then the router, tried different combinations, removed switches, switched equipment to different ports, etc ...

     

    Me : goes to my ISP website to contact support, only to be greeted by an outage warning ...

     

     

     

    *sigh* damn it, should've checked my ISP network status first! :(

      About ~4 months ago there was a Spectrum(TWC) Internet outage along the US East Coast. I had no idea why our Internet died but it took me bringing their modem back to the store and this lady turning away dozens of people from entering the building for me to find out.

       

      I thought the Internet was redundancy built on top of redundancy. Now I think the Internet is one janitor short of tripping over a power cable consequently knocking out the whole East Coast again.

  2. Friday ; I get a ticket escalation, it's to recover a folder that's been deleted accidentally.

     

    * I recover the folder during the weekend *

     

    Monday ; I close the ticket and give the path to the recovered folder (user had already made a new folder with the same name, containing similarly named files)

     

    Today ; I get a ticket to recover a folder ... the same folder ... erased "accidentally" by the same person ... I see a pattern here! 🤔

     

    * recovers the folder, but not before removing her access to delete the folder *

    * close the ticket *

      @Lurick 

      That's a possibility that I'm not the one that gets the ticket to give her back access to delete that folder

       

      ... I wish I could add note one group / user combo, so that the next admin that tries to assign the "full access" group for that folder get a warning "hey, she deleted that folder twice, in 4 days, maybe don't give her access to do that again!"

       

      :P

      Worked retail when I was young, that's way worse IMO. People are horrible to retail workers and restaurant staff ! :(

      At least with IT, there's very little "bad" people, but a lot of "dumb" people ;)

      I'm not sure which I'd prefer. The uneducated people I deal with here on the forum already infuriate me. I can't count how many times I've said "Just let me do it." in my head despite knowing that's not an option.

      "Dumb people"
      Yes indeed. I had a client before where every time she puts in a request, she would type up a giant story as to why this needs to be done. Like ma'am, I get it, you have new employee and they need a user account. I don't need to know when the interview was, which other company they're coming from, or what they'll be doing with each shared folder access. 🤦‍♂️

      Aus was always too close and had many Azure Regions there so it didn't make any sense to deploy in to NZ, now with all the crap going on now and Aus Regions getting full (VM deployment requests were disabled for a while and heavy restrictions on OneDrive and SharePoint/Teams) it's basically forced Microsoft's hand.

      Only reason to do this, and read me out, is because local privately owned companies are requiring a face mask to allow you to enter and transact business (their right, I support fully) - and this lady is just complying and pretending to be ignorant - if so that's funny

       

      Shes probably just retarded

  12. For goodness sake Microsoft ... could you not break RDP settings on a computer with random updates !!!!

     

    We're all working from home, and one of the accounting people, need to access their work computer from time to time to run applications that don't run in virtualized environment and that we couldn't install on her laptop before the quarantine.

     

    RDP stopped working on her PC, and of course there's nobody physically at work ! Took me all afternoon to get that working (lots of remote management stuff was off, even though it's managed through GPOs and shouldn't have broke... great job MS! 🤦‍♂️)

      RDP is one of those things where it's absolutely fantastic and nothing beats it... but it's also terrible in ways it shouldn't be at this point. 😫

      No, I meant the normal mesh - with an aircooler it isn't that terrible, real problems start once you put an AIO in the front - and since it's the only place to put one that's larger than 140mm... Well, it definitely isn't ideal :P

    3. wkdpaul

      wkdpaul

      ahhh!!! lol

       

      Yeah, my CPU temps aren't bad, especially since I undervolted it, and it's only a 8700 non-k, but even my small 1060 3GB gets ridiculously hotter than needed in summer with the regular front panel on (in the 70's, while removing the front panel drops the temperatures to mid to high 50's, so around 15+c just because of the front panel on the GPU alone).

       

      I know that's not bad, but still, I feel it's quite surprising to see that much of a difference! That's why I've been looking for that mesh front panel for a while!

    4. Morgan MLGman

      Morgan MLGman

      Oh I get it now - I always used this case with beefy, top-end, 3-fan GPUs so GPU temps and the noise were pretty good despite poor airflow

      I switched my P400 before the panel went on sale, but I assume it must help a great deal as it's the only major thing that's wrong about this case. Got no regrets about the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic though ;)

    (because all my crafting jobs are at lvl 80 and he didn't even started one! :P )

      And, to be fair to my cousin, he's actually lvl 80 with his WAR, WHM, SAM and SMN, it's far more than me with just my WAR !!! :P

      Can you switch your class on the go?

    3. TVwazhere

      TVwazhere

      Yes you can literally bring up a menu of all your classes and switch in 1 second. There's no down time, load states or wait times, and all your gear switches with your classes based on your pre sets. Makes it easy to re-queue as different classes for dungeons and raids, no need to have separate characters either.

      @TVwazhere

       

      yup, DoH (disciple of the hand) = crafting, I've maxed them out because of the quarantine. I mean, 2 weeks ago, I hadn't started the Weaiver, Leatherworker and Goldsmith classes yet !!!

       

      There's a reconstruction happening in one of the city, it lets you craft special items that you can donate for gold (Gils), XP and "seals" (that you can exchange for equipment and accessories), at lower levels, 2 or 3 items is enough to level up (up to level 55-60 I would say), after that you start needing a lot more, but it's basically an express route to lvl 80! :D

       

       

      For the DoL (gathering), there's no fast track, so I just gather whatever gives the most XP and then sell that on the market :P

       

       

      EDIT : didn't realized (or forgot?) you were playing FFXIV :)
