  • Well just had a talk with my PM and he said he's all in for me getting a raise. Time to start negotiating.
    Had a weird issue on my work laptop. It wouldn't let me connect to MS Teams or open up Outlook. I tried signing out of teams and signing back in and got Error with connection to Trusted Platform Module. Had to power off and boot again. Almost missed a meeting due to this bs.
    Stupid Desktop Windows Manager memory leak on Intel is preventing me from running VM's on my laptop. Great!
    Classic MS. It used to be that "Update and shutdown" was update, shutdown, finish update on next boot. Now it is Update->Restart->Finish Update->Shutdown.

    Eh, don't get mad, but I think that makes more sense? You boot up the system the next time and is ready to go (well, besides maybe a "getting things ready" screen when you log in)

    Ultimately, can you not just use the "normal" shutdown option?
    Had a weird dream where I was fighting snakes that nested in my house. I got 2 out of 3, the third one will probably strike back in another dream

    Practice taking control of your dreams so you can put on a shoe and step on the snake's head before it gets you.
    Though knowing dreams the snake will just vaporize your shoe.

    @RealKGB I guess they teach those tricks at the KGB ;)

    The last one was the smallest, it will take some time before he grows big enough...

    ...unless Freddy shows up!
    Freaking pigeons are trying to nest in a plant on my balcony. Damn flying rats!

    Why does your complaint read like either Dr. Magnusson about the crows in HL2 Ep2 or that british cook about the fucking pigeons? :laugh:

    Kin pigeons I was harassed by two nesting and s#@# on my bedroom window only for one of the thick rats to try and dive bomb my face while I was washing the pots one day, like you would imagine, I wash the pots in the kitchen sink, it didn't go well for him but funny, I nearly died he left a Scoobie doo print on the window.
    He lived though, thick #@#£r.

    Well, washing machine is borked. Hopefully technician will fix it tomorrow. I don't have time or skills to deal with it on my own.

    Sadly there is little fixing, and more replacing in modern devices.
    It doesn't take a "technician" to swap parts.
    Have you looked up the beep codes or light flashing sequences online to determine the fault?
    Chomiq
    Chomiq
    There are no beep codes and no flashing lights. It's simply leaking and I don't have time and skills to troubleshoot it so yeah,I'd rather pay a guy that's certified by the manufacturer to fix it.

    Well, it's utterly borked. Fixing it would costs 70% of new washing machine
    Had a terrible dream in which I was moving in to some boarding school and random people kept barging in without knocking as I was trying to unpack. Finally freaked the f*ck out and screamed for everyone to leave me the f... alone. This must have been some sort of analogy to my work right now.
    48" C11 is on promo for €895 down from €1300. Must not give in!

    Despite the bribery talk, my LG OLED has still been an 11/10 purchase.

    Sorry/not sorry

    Yeah they make good products, at least when it comes to oleds. It's just that their marketing was forgetting the golden rule that when the product is good it will defend itself.
    C1 down to €850.

    Morning ruined thanks to troubles with shady ebay seller. Eventually he agreed to accept my refund once I opened official claim with photo evidence. Freaking pawn shops trying to pose for actual stores selling defective items.
    Have a scheduled meeting with people from Orlen - oil giant in PL. They've sent a Skype invite. Who the F... uses Skype in 2021?!

    Wait... is Soulja Boy beefin with Linus over Soulja's shitty emulator consoles? lol

    I feel like LTT had to have covered that at some point. I assume that's why he's comin in hot like that.

    He got ripped up across tech media for that dog and pony show. Seems like he's still jumpy hah

    For those wondering - turns out that AIDA64 key from some random promo site was in fact a pirate key. Thanks mods!
    Google is clever "Um, we need to verify your age because you're in EU. You can use credit card (no charges) or photo of ID". Fill in the credit card details, immediately added as payment option. Of course you don't get any information about it unless you check it yourself.

    Don't they also charge a dollar or something "to make sure the card is legit" and refunded after a day or 3 or something? I think they at least used to do that.

    Think they used to but this shows $0.00
    That's some productive spam here: "have a legal business proposition for you worth $45,275,000.00"

    Well, I got a proposition from Princess Gaddafi and from some high office in the UN. Suck it up, plebs. :laugh:

    Seriously, though. I can't believe scammers think that someone will fall for that... then again, there is probably someone out there ignorant enough to fall for it.
    I might one day try and see what happens if I respond to one of those. Probably the day before I erase my account...

    Seems like COVID made wild boars more adventurous and they explore the city areas more often. Just saw two police cars chasing a pack around the neighborhood.
    Freaking IT departments outsourced to India. Sure, cost is low but they have no idea what they are doing when it comes to dealing with product they're suppose to support.

    They have flowcharts for that.

    "I see your computer has a problem"
    "Please first press this button"
    "Did that work"
    "OK then please press that button"

    I'm not joking. Ironically, the result is no different from domestic support desks...
