" It would be better if each side didn't assume the other side were idiots or evil."
With one line you've summed up the vast majority of all online trollfests. Kudos.
It is the extremist responses and extremist assumptions that have resulted in a certain real estate con artist running the excited snakes, and the reactions of certain elements of the european population to changes in immigration, amongst so many other things.
"Yes the buzzwords abound in any crisis from a large company.
However I have witnessed many times that when the engineer looks for and finds why something is wrong they might be tempted to power cycle ........"
I've never in my 30 years in IT seen a gateway do vacuuming for anyone let alone a server.....
So Colorado's entire government are going to jail are they?
Controlled Substances Act contains a HELL of a lot more than Mary Jay Wanna. And not everything on it is "illegal". They are 'controlled'. There is a subtle difference that tone deaf echo chamber residents have a problem hearing.
“In your greenfield you can introduce a microservice architecture so that the developers and new applications can use the latest technologies, build tools, frameworks, and methodologies to help the business innovate and adapt quickly.”
The only greenfield this has direct relevance to is the green field(s) that are now legal here in Canada. Someone done been smokin a bit too much.
I'm the body that knows the 20 year old legacy system. I'm movin on.
--- B side ready for a break -- time to put the A side back to work.
While I get the distance/risk bit I'm still somewhat curious as to why they don't swap them on a regular schedule. Especially now that they've patched the original issue on the A side. (something like every 200 sols or such)
You keep saying these things that make me want to meet you .......
"So... why shouldn't we have stuff? So long as society as a whole is treating people decently, and things are sustainable, I really don't care."
And sometimes I think you're layering stuff in there that means far more than the words on the page.
people keep forgetting that Server Message Block is a communication protocol. That there was at one time a number of stupid uses of this communications protocol is the problem.
Common internet file system is slowly and quietly catching up to networked file system.
Samba was a suite of tools that (at the time) made using and connecting to the stupid services run out over Server Message Block somewhat doable. Sometimes. When MS wasn't playing hide the pickle.
<and if you get that last line, a) you're old enough to know better and b) I can tell you where you were in May of 2002>
Once, long ago, in the darkness of a friday night I was faced with an initialization process after the 5 node cluster came up, and whilst I was looking at logs, I noted that the bundle of software that had been laboriously unpacked and distributed across the cluster was a) using about 48% more memory than it typically had prior, and while the daemons were starting up they were dumping debugging output to the logs instead of "INIT_START, INIT_DONE RUNNING".
I quietly pointed out to the release manager that we'd received a debug set from the QA team and we'd best either roll back or have QA do up a run without the debug. QA reported that it would take between 20 and 38 hours to recompile the application suite.
Y'all just *SPOILED* buggers with your 10 minute compiles.......
Glad I'm not the only one that caught that. I'm hoping that it was a sly nudge on the whole 'we're radicalizing both ends of the entire population so they don't see what we're letting the wall street financial trolls get up to in the next 5 years'. But I suspect it was just a typo.
Currently the only purpose to a headphone jack on any phone that I use is to provide the FM antenna. I have several very dead button type headphones about (thanks to cats, 12 year old and shoddy build) that provide this service admirably. So I can listen to the FM radio on my phone. On a bluetooth headset.
Me: "Good afternoon, @#$%@#$% command centre, how can I help you?"
Her: "I was told that the power outage in the data centre was repaired and everything was back online, is this correct?"
Me: "Well, yes, we've recovered from the power failure and most systems are back online, how can I help you?"
Her: "Well, you're absolutely wrong, I'm at my desk in the data centre and none of the lights are working, and I can't turn on my computer!!! You guys need to change that message on your phones right now, and get back to work on the problem!!!"
<queue puzzled look at my compatriot, who can hear this woman screaming at the top of her lungs into my headset>
Me: "Ma'am, which data centre are you in please?" <We do have several, although there are *NO* desks in any of them and certainly damned few user desktops>
Her: "I'm in the 8th floor computer centre at 888 #@$%@ street, in room *#$%^, and the lights wont go on, my computer wont go on and I'm pretty sure my phone isn't working either"
<aaaaaahhh!!!! Thats an outbound call centre phone pharm, not a data centre, aaaaaaaaaaand there *should* be a rather long banner hung on the doors about the building service and where the reps are supposed to go instead for the day>
Me: "Are you aware that the building is under power maintenance, and you are supposed to be across the street in 1 @#$%&^#& @#$%&# on the 9th floor?"
Her: "Oh, so it was you that told the security guards that lie!!!!"
We wont go into where I and my compatriots took this dear lady, but we'd already had a 4 hour power outage to deal with in our data centre that day and we were looking at about another 11 hours of work to sort out the fallout on a long weekend sunday. All I can say is that I was thankful for the hold button. She ended up across the street on the 9th floor with her co-workers about an hour and half later, but *ONLY* because we had a call from someone already there and managed to connect the two bodies to convince her that we were not "Utterly incompetent lying @$%^@#$%^s" Sadly for her, it ended up being her second last day on the job. Inbound calls were recorded all the time, and she got pretty darned foul.
I've just handed in my resignation with my long term Canadian employer, and I'll be working for an American company now. From home. Remote. No visa needed. Although, having asked the question, I've been told I'd be greencarded without issue.
First time I've needed a passport in a long time. (Have to visit head office for the initial Hi, howareya, this is how we do it meetings).
If you're willing to absorb the penalty you will likely be nailed with, have the SO engage that while you're in the hall. Use your card to unlock the bolt, take two steps back and give the door a good solid kick. You will then understand the utter uselessness of those cute little chains and or slidy loops of white metal, that have been plated in brass like finish.
There was a time in the *past* where the mob had a huge influence in Vegas, and there is little question that the "What happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas" expression *probably* came out of their blackmail habits. I'm not so certain that we're dealing with the same mentality in whatever security theatre is running Ceasars. I'm inclined to agree with the "We had some shit happen, so now we have to be SEEN to be DOING something" class of theatre.
As for why Vegas, well, it is on one of the more solid portions of that section1 of the continent. I suspect that in the zombie apocalypse, it will be quite well defended and, other than starving to death, rather well defended.
1. It is still however quite prone to earthquakes, relative to, say, the lower portion of the Canadian shield, or, say, Cincinatti.
There is a pivot to the *current* case, and that is that Hansmeier still has an outstanding appeal pending that could in fact toss out *all* charges against him, resulting in *this* judgement being moot and invalid.
Apparently his partner in crime is 'helping' the investigation and is basically free and clear at the moment.
I know a *real* lawyer, who actually takes her job quite seriously, and one just has to mention these two and she has a tendency to become volcanic.
Hansmeier copped a guilty = bypass a trial now, hang off the contest of the 'pitch out all the charges'.
can someone *not* find this bugger and help him to do his time for screwing folks over?
Oh, and locate the stash of cash while you're at it and help out a couple thousand homeless folks.
