What a shit fuck of a day...

I woke up tired without enough sleep.

Then all of a sudden anxiety triggered in and I had a panic attack without any reason.

That irritates me beyond anything.

After all the morning struggle, I reached office and bam!!! My system has is turned off.

WHO FUCKING DID THIS???? WHO THE FUCK TURNED OFF MY SYSTEM ABRUPTLY?

I lost some of my work and setup.

Well, no worries. Let's turn it on.

Guess what? The network wouldn't connect.

Aaarrrgghhhh!!!!! Rage fit.

Tried turning it on and off. Did everything. No success.

Raised a ticket and network guys are friends so they helped me.

After diagnosis, we realise that this is not a network issue as system is working on static IP and even desk phone works fine.

Contacted the desktop team. They said try connecting on another desk.

Well fuck you lazy piece of monkey shit!!

Removed all the cables and tried on neighbouring desk.

This doesn't work you shit head. I told him to help but bugger left because he had some another important meeting.

Now I am stuck without network. Time to play some games before my manager fucks me up for wasting time.

I see no good thing happening today. But I found this while on Chrome.

I think it's Terry's birthday. Happy birthday Terry!!!

    It is. Chrome was released 10 years ago this week.

    Why did you leave your pc on with unsaved work in the first place?

    If it's Windows, the static IP can be checked back to DHCP when you go into the network center, adapter settings for your interface, properties or something like that, and eventually you'll see a big menu that you can scroll through. There you'll be looking for the IPv4 settings. Click something saying "Change" or whatever and check DHCP instead of static. Then you'll be able to get a DHCP lease, that is if there's a DHCP server present in your network. Ask the network guys about it, I'm sure they've gone static for a reason (though they should really build a local DHCP server that does DNS, DHCP and static leases within DHCP if they want to ping back into your machine and keep things maintainable).

    Likely your networking chaps will do the obvious layer testing. Layer 1, is the cable attached and can we ping loopback? Layer 2, do we have a MAC address? Layer 3, can we ping the router? Layer 4 (well then you'll have network access so troubleshooting stops there, just ping something like google.com), can we reach services on certain ports? Layer 5, can we get a session? Layer 6, I forgot that one. Fuck it. Layer 7, can we access certain servers (fuck, that's layer 4!) and doesn't the client have problems? Layer 8, did the user or WanBLowS update fuck up?

    Eh, whatever. Troubleshooting is a pain in the ass.

    @not-sure the work was saved. Only some was unsaved.

    @Condor windows troubleshooting is pain.

    @hubiruchi nice perspective. Thanks

    @C0D4 and talk to myself

    @C0D4 when he said we would do anything to troll him it was not a challenge

    @Floydian

    The problem is you tried turning it on and off.

    You should try turning it off and on, so it ends up being on.

    @Condor
    I'm currently trying to memorise this myself for a Net+. I hate memorization...

    @C0D4 lol this reminded me of a story horror story:

    "It's not creepy if you hug a Teddy Bear. Shit gets real when Teddy hugs back".

    @hubiruchi I fucking hate you all.

    @bittersweet hahaha yes.

    @RiderExMachina in german there's a "Eselsbrücke" like a sentence to help you remember stuff, going "Alle Prister Saufen Tequilla Nach Der Predigt" roughly translates to (while keeping the first letters) "All Priests Sip Tequilla Network Datalink Physical" sorry havent found a good replacement for the lower three layers. Maybe you could use "All Priests Sip Tequilla Naturally During Priesthood" or something?

    @Wack
    My coworker came up with one that's really memorable the other day: "Avoid People Saying They'll Never Download Porn."

    There's another one I found for layers 1-7 which is "Phew! Dead Ninja Turtles Smell Particularly Awful!"

    Thank you for the Tequila Sipping Priests suggestion!

    @RiderExMachina Just do it! I failed my first Net+ by one question, and regretted it for a year instead of rescheduling for the next week. I’m CCNA now, but it too me *so* much longer than it should have. If you fail, RESCHEDULE IMMEDIATELY!! Good luck!!🍀
