My train is running Debian...
Normally it just shows the PXE boot screen when it's not working.
Seems like they've improved 😂7

A friendly reminder that Deutsche Bahn fucking sucks.
Their trains show up 10 minutes later than they would have to everyday.
Once I saw that there was a train that was 120+ minutes late.
Today I had to wait almost 20 minutes at a SINGLE train station. Thus I couldn't enter the next train.
To my luck the next train arrives in an hour.
As a student it makes my life way harder than it already is.
It is not reliable at all.
They charge you with 60€ if you forget your ticket btw.
I don't forget my ticket though. My ticket is my campus card.
Their tickets are fucking overpriced and they are always damn late. I ain't paying for that shit. I would rather ride with a horse to the university than paying for a ticket.
Second EDIT as an update:
They just announced that my next train is going to come 10 minutes later. What a bloody surprise, eh?31
Someone call a dev, this website is sick!
I'm talking about the website of the German train company (Deutsche Bahn).
Their ticket information and selling module has not being feeling well for a couple of days now.
- error 500 pages when trying to find a connection through their search
- not being able to book tickets
- being able to book tickets, but receiving them twice
- being charged twice for one ticket
- not being able to download tickets you bought
Suggested treatment: If you were charged too much, you have to send them a letter by postal mail to get your money back.
Or buy a ticket directly at the train station.
What year is this? 🤔😐7
This was posted by the largest German railway company "Deutsche Bahn". Rough translation: "Today's quiz photo shows modern fiber optic networks as part of our control center components - who knows what their purpose is?"
That explains a lot. Someone should tell them.7
Sitting in a germans-only company on a germans-only talk, listening to german presenters trying to speak english.
"...And sis is a Integräitontest, witsch is verry important [...] sis here is my sird maven plugin..." schnitzel.
Why for god sake do you funky hip devs mean you have to speak english to me?! Especially if you are simply not able to?
Some of my favorites:
My english is not se yellow from se egg but I hope you understand me.
Sänk ju for trävveling wis deutsche bahn.
Someone has similiar sentences?22
Deutsche Bahn once again.
Deutsche Bahn and I will never be friends I guess.
I'm at a train station where my train arrives only once per hour.
As if that's not enough time to wait already, the first train got canceled.
I was like "Ok, that's Deutsche Bahn. That can happen (and will happen always). Guess that I will wait for another hour".
Minutes before the planned arrival of the second train, they announced that the second train isn't coming either.
I have been at a fucking train station for bloody 3 hours approximately.
Let's wait and see, if my train will ever arrive.
Honestly, thinking about buying camping tools to sleep at this train station and go to university and come back to this place just because of this problem.21
Advertisement boards at german undergound station.
Thank you windows for the bright blue light down there under ground <34
German train notifies me 8 minutes in advance that my train is cancelled.
Yeah, so useful, thanks...
(I know off-topic but I’m pretty pissed rn)9
Went out with friends last night to celebrate a birthday, on our way back with the train we are asked for our tickets. We had bought a group ticket (for 30€/5 Persons) and showed it to the ticket checker. It was 6:20 am at that point and we were all tired and just wanted to go home, but apparently the ticket was only valid to 6 am (it does not say that anywhere on the ticket and it is called a "9-o'clock day ticket"). That asshole seriously made a record about all of us and took 60€ from everyone of the 5 of us.
The Deutsche Bahn company is the only rail company in my region, there is nothing that could compete with them, so they just shit on their customers. And now they want to privatize the highways too? Stop making public traffic something to pay for! There is no competition if there is only one traffic company with the only highways or train-web in a specific region.6
Remember this rant? https://devrant.com/rants/2049166/...
How the fuck is their search still broken? It's a portal with hundreds of thousands visitors each day. -.-!8
HOLY FUCK (!dev) SOMEONE KILL THE MANAGEMENT OF DEUTSCHE BAHN ALREADY
Seriously where can I complain? delays on every single train i was on since weeks. and always because of some stupid shit like "we need to let another train pass by". wtf you didnt know that earlier?15
Finally back at home (after having some trouble with Deutsche Bahn).
It is cold and cloudy here.
It feels so weird to use a laptop. I was there (in Turkey) only with my phone, typing this post on my laptop. The screen is so god damn big.
My bed is very soft. My kitten got very strong and fluffy. He looks more muscular now lol. And it seems like he missed us :3.
I missed him and I missed my car that I did not like like a month ago. I really understood how much value it has. Besides of that my mind is clean now. It was like meditation.
Fuck that pussy ass description.
How was your day, fellas?6
dear deutsche bahn developers: please review you handling for dynamic contents width. yours sincerely
ps. riding in a full train and not enough space to handle my computer is boring.5
The fact that buying a paper train ticket from automates in Germany requires you to write your name on it afterwards with a pen is putting me through a lot of pain.20
Deutsch Bahn, again: A delay of 8 minutes (the DB officially recognizes this as late) results to an impossible to reach connecting train leading to a total delay of ca. 2 hours, as I cannot use the Inter City train anymore, but have to use a "Regional Express" instead.
Out of 5 times travelling this route, I arrived 2 times 2 hours later.3
Talking about Deutsche Bahn ticket buying not working, but the NS sends me emails with non-functional buttons to press in order to get my ticket. What a train wreck2
Shout-out to the German Bundesbahn (railway company) for using debian on their infotainment systems inside the trains!
But please, make them reliable... I regularly see systems stuck in boot and kernel panics as soon as they start...
But hey, it's the right direction :)4
German "deutsche Bahn" 6 days after a storm... Red and crossed means that it it isn't coming at all.8
There is no greater embarrassment for me as a german then the Deutsche Bahn. There is no greater accumulation of incompetence than this bundle of dillitants.6
Not sure if this is supposed to be a debug duck - things you find in Mannheim when the Deutsche Bahn makes you doubt again about German punctuality3
The departure display at the train station seems to like a rant very much. It even wants to +++ it two times...
Offtopic: What tf is this information supposed to inform me about?4
