Corona times and remote work be like:
hm, can't connect to my pc at work again. Why is it down? Whatever
*starts writing to collegues asking if anyone is physically present and could kick (aka. boot.) the pc.*

ah yes, fun times

    thanks to a very nice collegue who took time of his day to go and check on my pc (it is a very busy time right now), it was determined that *somehow* the lan cable was unplugged. What the f. Who the f unplugs Lan cables from running pc's in Corona times, where half the office is working remotely....

    well, at least it was an easy fix.

    Maybe the staff did it accidentally, while cleaning the place?

    @Makenshi maybe. Or maybe someone accidentally pulled it out with their foot or something. who knows? it is to forever be a mystery....

    I lately debugged like 20 minutes why my docking Station in the office wouldn’t recognise my monitors.
    Replugged the Laptop, rebooted the Laptop, checking Settings... rebooting again.
    After a while I checked cables and found the usb-c wasn’t connected to the dockingstation in the table.

    @hbr147 those are the most painful bugs aren't they. Where one just lets out a deep sigh after fixing it.

    @hasu they really are.
    I felt it’s kinda sad that I more likely think that this is some sort of a software issue instead of just checking the cable when I get no signal.
    before I started programming and working in data science for a big company I had more trust in software and probably would have had solved that much quicker.
