Search - "reboot"
Wanted to reboot my work pc today. I always do that through a terminal and I've got dozens open anyways.
*wants to reboot right away*
*stops at the last possible point to check if I'm not in a server-logged-in terminal*
*silently logs out of prod server*
Well that was god damn close.28
I used "shutdown -r now" on Linux for like 4 years and my colleague just showed me "reboot" command22
"could I get admin privileges to reboot this server?"
Sounds valid enough, right?
OH YEAH SURE, YOU'RE A TINY USER ON A HUGE ASS SHARED SERVER, OF COURSE I'LL GIVE YOU ROOT ACCESS TO REBOOT THE WHOLE FUCKING SERVER.
Worst part, he didn't understand why that would be weird.
Can I buy a little common sense somewhere for this guy?28
Had three servers running in prod. For extra security all of them were encrypted (hdd encryption) just in case.
"mate, servers need a quick reboot, that alright?"
Me: yeah sure!
"oh hey they're encrypted, what's the password?"
Yeah, i also forgot to turn on the backup process...17
Who the fuck thought this feature would be a good idea?!
*holds the power button because want to reboot*
*presses reboot in the tiny menu*
*walks away to return in about an hour*
"Are you sure you want to reboot?" *cancel and OK buttons*
Me: arrives in office plugin laptop
Laptop: ok let's a start windows
Windows: hello, welcome back!
Me: opens Android Studio, VS code, Nativescript Sidekick ... Continue work where I took off before Christmas
Windows: lets reboot this bitch!
Laptop: Oh lord!
New phone rom doesn't allow bloatware app removal, even at root level.
Root file manager -> /system/app -> remove whole 'uninstallable app's' whole fucking folder -> reboot -> device still works well.
Working 600 km from home on my first big web project, with a raspberry pi as server (located at home). Decided to reboot it today in order to see if it would resolve a problem.
It probably booted up with a different local ip, cant access it anymore with ssh or ftp.
Me: "Delete this folder"
Windows: "Oki, done."
Me: "How is it still there, F5. Still there! Hey, you forgot to delete this one file. Fix it."
Windows: "Requires permissions."
Me: "Eh, it was my file, but here you are, my admin credentials."
Windows: "None shall pass."
Me: "Wtf, this is my computer. Who owns this file?"
Windows: "No one."
Me: "What do you mean? Oh, time for your reboot pills, ms. Wandows."
Windows: "Noooooo... ... ... Welcome."
Me: "Ha, the file is gone. Glorious victory."
Windows: "It's just a flash wound."

I have a colleague who has a fear of closing any window. He'll let his Mac run for months on end without closing any of the windows he's opened. He also has all kinds of browsers with tons of tabs open. He's a designer so I get his urge to not do all the technical bits and bobs every day, but for the love of zalgo restart your computer once in a while. Or at least close windows you don't use. It's come to a point where non of us want to help him, because helping him out takes forever with his slow as shit computer. We've asked/told/joked about it too him several times, but he just doesn't want to listen. At one point when I was helping him everything took so long that I decided to reboot for him. And of course Mac had to go and reopen every window that was open during shutdown, which took another good fifteen minutes. Shite OS. And naturally he spent the next hour fixing everything the way he liked it. He hasn't turned off his computer since (couple of months ago), except for when we moved to a new building a month ago.
Just had to get that annoyance of my chest.8
I'll start my own series on hacking.
BECOME A HACKER WITH 4 SIMPLE STEPS!!!!!1!
#1 Open cmd
#2 Enter hackermode
Type "color 0a"
#3 write a Hackerscript
Type "%0 | %0"
Step 3 is a bit risky and may fail. Reboot and repeat until you understand why it failed
#4 Realize that the internet is scary place and that you can't trust anyone.10
Windows 10 Native SSH client inside CMD is crazy nice, no more putty... given its a windows feature and all!
(Hidden in additional features if any one is interested, will need a reboot to work)17
TL;Dr be specific, it's actually helpful.
Client rings... "The internet is down"
Me "ok where are you exactly and how are you connecting"
"Ugh the WiFi! Just fix it"
"Ok but where are you?"
"Ok and which wi..."
"The wifi?!! Can you do anything right?"
Well... I'm allowed flexibility in terms of pleasantry...
"Ok, there are 3 buildings, 55 rooms, 2 SSID's, 17 access points, 3 routers a RADIUS server and 2 gateways... Be specific or I'll do nothing"
Simple reboot of an access point, but c'mon... It's not a secret where you are7

So I was driving my car the other day and the screen on my radio decided to go blank and the music stopped. I ended up pulling over and turning my car off and back on again.
I had to reboot my car. Didn't see that one coming. 😡😂3
Me: *reinstalling windows10 using the recovery disk.
"Your partitions will be reformatted if needed... warnings this, that... Continue?"
Me: do it already!
"Sorry cannot recover. We didn't change anything."
"No bootable drive found"
YOU MOTHERFUCKING LIAR! *throws away the thumb drive with the laptop attached out of spite28
just wanted to watch a movie on a flight, then this happened 🤦♂️
Flight assistant: "oh no, not again. I will reboot it for you."11
That mini heart attack you get when you've rebooted the server, but it takes longer than normal before it comes up again (and before you can ssh it).2
(Starts up, chat window pops up)
IT guy: Okay we fixed it.
Me: Fixed what? You shut off my PC I was in the middle of something!
IT guy: I have here Jeff needs Java updated
Me: This isn't his computer
IT guy: Have a good day (chat status changes to "in a meeting")
For retaliation I found him on AD and spent the day writing a script to reboot his PC every hour.2
Microsoft, if I click the "Update and shut down" button it means I want you to update and shut down, not do a third of the update, shut down then wait for me to turn the computer back on for you to finish! Why can't it just do the update, reboot as necessary then shut down once it's all done?3
Me: *on the phone with client* "Ok, now reboot the cashier terminal"
Client: *reboots server causing whole system to go down*
Me: *internal screams*6
Working hard on a project. Suddenly, my system freezes except for my terminals. I curse, as I really don't want to reboot. I spend 10 minutes that I don't have investigating processes, and then look at my mouse.
It's wireless, and had simply run out of juice.
4 week summer vacation over. Did not code any sideprojects and opened laptop only to watch netflix on vacation (Stranger Things ❤️). My liver will be pleased that its over. Tomorrow back to work, hopefully I remember how to code again 😜9
When you break the Mc Donalds ordering system, and you don't feel bad, bcuz it runs Windows...
(Took 5 minutes for the system to reboot...
McDonalds should have run Linux... ;_;)8
Mac: you have to reboot for updates
Mac: ... ... (It didn't start anymore)
Work project was there and I did not push :(12
All I wanted was for you to live in harmony with my Arch install on my laptop. I appreciate both of you guys for different reasons. You guys did okay for for 2 weeks. Then, when I was using you, you blue screened quickly and rebooted.
On reboot, the BIOS couldn't boot. I reboot again, but instead of my normal GRUB menu, it just goes straight to you. I call for Arch, but only you responded.
I understand you are a bit possessive, but you really need to learn to play with others.
You are in time out until your brother is fixed. Now nobody is happy.10
So I work in the service desk and the moment and one of our clients use Mac's.
One of the end users called up saying that it was being slow and sluggish.
End user: hi my Mac is being slow.
Me: when did you last reboot it?
End user: last night
*Runs uptime in terminal*
Me: are you sure you rebooted it last night?
End user: yes I close the lid every night...
The up time was 68 days...9
This is kinda funny even if the picture is in Swedish. When Avast requires the computer to restart and you can let Avast to remind you to reboot about 10 mins, 1 hour, 4 hours, 6 hours, tomorrow, next week or the best of all - next century, WOW!!
Maybe something Microsoft should implement in their Windows Update?4
PSA: "sudo apt-get remove nginx" doesn't actually remove nginx. It will still continue to run and block port 80 on every reboot.
Until you run sudo apt-get autoremove, nginx-core and others still remain.
And that's how twenty seconds of scheduled downtime turns into 10 minutes.
That moment when you have important programs running in Windows 10 (Including an Ubuntu virtual machine) and Windows decides to just reboot, without permission for updates.9
When you reboot your server and on boot it asks for the hdd encrypted password. I have no clue anymore. Oh how fucking happy I am that we have no users yet and are in closed alpha. Happy to learn this now so I'll never make this mistake again. 😨3

Why must you do this to me, Debian?21
"Delete node_modules folder and execute npm install" is the js version for "reboot the machine". Often works, but no one knows exactly why.3
Did the only sensible thing IMO and installed a Linux VM on that thing.
In case you don't know what this is about. Essentially at the hotel I'm staying at they have put iMacs in every room as a TV replacement. And some of them run an OSX version from 2011! That means there a quite a lot of known remote execution bugs known for these devices. You can't update them either because they reset after each reboot. Because I was sick of using Firefox 6 for watching videos I installed xubuntu on that thing. (God knows why the admin passwort is blank)3
During highschool years I was using Ubuntu for the 1st time and saw this strange looking icon named vim....had to reboot PC to close vim 😅
Not my proudest moment.6
Today I broke our testing server.
I accidentally (don't even ask, I'm stupid) renamed the /lib folder and nothing worked anymore. Not a single bash-command. I had to shutdown the server and reboot it with a recovery-cd to rename the folder again. Luckily it all runs in a vSphere so I didn't even had to stand up from my desk.4
Trying to install ubuntu on usb...
Make it persistent, so everything stays installed on the usb.
Installing some packages, personalizing it.
Reboot... And..... It's gone.7
User: "But if you reboot my phone, won't all my pictures go away?!"
Me: "No, sadly your thousands of cat photos are here to stay."1
Question for networking persons or persons who might know more about this than me in general.
I'm looking at setting up a server as vpn server (that part I know) which tunnels everything through multiple other vpn connections.
So let's say I've got a vps which I connect to through vpn. I then want that vps to have one or multiple connections to other vpn servers.
That way i can connect my devices to this server which routes everything to/through other services like mullvad :).
Tried it before but ended up losing ssh access until reboot 😬
“Get Linux, they’ve said. You don’t have to restart after the update, they’ve said”
Maybe I’m stupid, or Ubuntu Budgie sucks, but every time after tiny update, the system says I need to reboot. Just like Windows!19
Android 8.1 on Nypon ?
They said i was crazy.
Im not crazy i just want it to run 8.1 no matter what.
Bootanim reached. Android part mostly done. NOW just binder kernel shit and im done.
To be honest i expected just kernel screen and reboot. Well it got bootanim and then crash due to missing binder stuff in kernel.
Now this is going to work.9
My friends trynna bullshit how windows is much better than Linux. They sayin shit like "at least our csgo don crash when we alt tab" then I say "at least I don't have to reboot when something go wrong" and they be like "yea but windows better" 😡16
I took part in a programming competition yesterday. The computer provided to me crashed just before we begun and took five minutes to reboot. I wrote an inference engine to solve a problem that would have put me in the top 5, but they refused to accept my solution because it was seconds after the submission time despite them being aware I started later than everybody else.2
Fucking Windows 10 entered an infinte reboot-BSOD-repeat loop after a failed upgrade... I JUST WANTED A FUCKING GAMENIGHT ON A SATURDAY YOU UTTER COCKSUCKING ABORTION9
Accidentally clicked Android studio while working and it freezed my system bad. Had to hard reboot it. FUCK THIS SHIT.5
My Sunday Morning until afternoon. FML. So I was experiencing nightly reboots of my home server for three days now. Always at 3:12am strange thing. Sunday morning (10am ca) I thought I'd investigate because the reboots affected my backups as well. All the logs and the security mails said was that some processes received signal 11. Strange. Checked the periodics tasks and executed every task manually. Nothing special. Strange. Checked smart status for all disks. Two disks where having CRC errors. Not many but a couple. Oh well. Changing sata cables again 🙄. But those CRC errors cannot be the reason for the reboots at precisely the same time each night. I noticed that all my zpools got scrubbed except my root-pool which hasn't been scrubbed since the error first occured. Well, let's do it by hand: zpool scrub zroot....Freeze. dafuq. Walked over to the server and resetted. Waited 10 minutes. System not up yet. Fuuu...that was when I first guessed that Sunday won't be that sunny after all. Connected monitor. Reset. Black screen?!?! Disconnected all disks aso. Reset. Black screen. Oh c'moooon! CMOS reset. Black screen. Sigh. CMOS reset with a 5 minute battery removal. And new sata cable just in cable. Yes, boots again. Mood lightened... Now the system segfaults when importing zroot. Good damnit. Pulled out the FreeBSD bootstick. zpool import -R /tmp zroot...segfault. reboot. Read-only zroot import. Manually triggering checksum test with the zdb command. "Invalid blckptr type". Deep breath now. Destroyed pool, recreated it. Zfs send/recv from backup. Some more config. Reboot. Boots yeah ... Doesn't find files??? Reboot. Other error? Undefined symbols???? Now I need another coffee. Maybe I did something wrong during recovery? Not very likely but let's do it again...recover-recover. different but same horrible errors. What in the name...? Pulled out a really old disk. Put it in, boots fine. So it must be the disks. Walked around the house and searched for some new disks for a new 2 disk zfs root mirror to replace the obviously broken disks. Found some new ones even. Recovery boot, minimal FreeBSD Install for bootloader aso. Deleted and recreated zroot, zfs send/recv from backup. Set bootfs attribute, reboot........
It works again. Fuckit, now it is 6pm, I still haven't showered. Put both disks through extensive tests and checked every single block. These disks aren't faulty. But for some reason they froze my system in a way so that I had to reset my BIOS and they had really low level data errors....? I Wonder if those disks have a firmware problem? So that was most of my Sunday. Nice, isn't it? But hey: calm sea won't make a good sailor, right?3
That time I thought I crashed a prod server which I had no access to physically turn it back on. Turned out it was doing its weekly reboot. Scary 3 minutes.
I was to optimise a SQL query (7 min to execute,yes) with around 20 joins (I did not write this). Checked for missing indexes,etc.. but nothing worked. Stared outside the window, and back to desk reordered the joins ,executed in 10 secs.1

Windows 10 has just decided to reboot my notebook during the installation of Qt... because the updates are more important...
I really wanna share this with you guys.
We have a couple of physical servers (yeah, I know) provided by a company owned by a friend of my boss. One of them, which I'll refer to as S1, hosted a couple of websites based on Drupal 7... Long story short, every php file got compromised after someone used a vulnerability within D7's core to inject malicious code. Whatver, wasn't a project of mine, and no one bothered to do anything about it... The client was even happy about not doing anything about it. We did stop making backups of such websites however, to avoid spreading the damage (right?). So, no one cared about this for months!
But last monday? The physical server was offline. I powered it on again via its web management interface... Dead after less than an hour. No backups. Oh well, I guess I couls keep powering it on to check what's wrong with it and attempt to fix it...
That's when I've learned how the web management interface works: power on/reboot requests prompted actual workers to reach the physical server and press the power on/reboot buttons.
That took a while to sink in. I mean, ok, theu are physical servers... But aren't they managed anyhow? They are just... Whatever. Rebooting over and over wasn't the solution, so I asked if they could move the HDD to another of our servers... The answer was it required to buy a "server installation" package. In short, we'd have had to buy a new physical server, or renew the subscription of one we already owned for 6 months.
So... I've literally spent the rest of the day bothering their emoloyeea to reboot S1, until I've reached the "daily reboot reauests limit" (which amounts to 3 reauests. seriously), whicj magically opened a support ticket where a random guy advised to stop using VNC as "the server was responsive" and offeres to help me with the command line.
Fiiine, I sort of appreciate it. My next message has been a kernel log which shows how the OS dying out was due to physical components becoming unavailable after a while, and how S1 lacked a VNC server, being accessible only via ssh. So, the daily reboot limit was removes for S1. Yay.
...What to do though? S1 was down, we had no backups, and asking for manual rebooting every time was slow as Hell. ....Then I went insane. I asked for 1 more reboot. su. crontab -e. */15 * * * * /sbin/shutdown -r +5. while true; do; rsync --timeout=20 --append S1:/stuff .; sleep 60; done.
It worked. We have now again access to 4 hacked, shitty Drupal 7 websites. My boss stopped shouting. I can get back to my own projects.
Apparently, those D7 websites got back online too, still with malicious php code within them. Well, not my problem (for now).
Meanwhile, S1 is still rebooting.3
When using Windows, I really feel like I don't own my computer. Like it'll update automatically without giving a single fuck wether you wish to install these updates on YOUR machine and install what Microsoft wants.
"Sup I'm the Windows update manager, seems like you're in the middle of some important work right now, let me just force reboot your machine and install some crap bloatware"9
Things that only happen on Windows:
1. Windows updates itself with a security-update
2. On next reboot, upgrade procedure fails and reverts changes
You cannot prevent the update, you cannot shutdown or reboot without the update and it takes around 30 minutes to install and revert every time during boot.
There is a saying; "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." I therefore officially proclaim insanity of my Windows installation.5
1) Remove kernel linux
2) Change kernel to linux-zen
3) Make init ramdisk
4) Everythings great -> hit reboot
5) Stuck at Grub
Me: Fuck.. Forgot to update grub config.
(Lesson : RTFM first.)1
Got an email from IT saying that a new anti ransomeware software is being installed company wide, but it doesn't play well with visual studio. His suggestion is that each time we need to compile, we run a batch file, reboot, compile, run another batch script, then reboot.
...he's in IT?8
i just love WINE
you can be playing something for an hour, and then BAM!
reboot doesn't help
loading diff saves doesn't help
just, no, "i dont wana work right now"4
I just earned my first experience with a "MacBook Pro"..
1. Started in safe mode (reboot solved that)
2. Safari crashed..
I see what you mean with innovation.. NOT!4
Used teamviewer to login to my other system to ssh into my other system to reboot cz didn't want to walk 5 steps and press the button.1
11.1/11.4 GB of RAM is being eaten open on boot, even though I just rebooted. Almost half of my swap is in use too. WTF! Windows is no help in explaining it either...SO ANNOYING!19
Hi.. Recently I began my career in IT firm but my work doesn't involve coding.
But I really aspire to become an programmer. I have been always searching playstore for apps related to programming.
Google play suggested me devRant. I installed it and found that it is the right place for me.
I hope you guys will be helpful and kind.
Thanks Guys !!!5
Installs Ubuntu 16.04
Try to put my favorite software installed.
Reboot failed, drops to BusyBox shell.
Me thinking : I fucked up.
Friend walks by, couldn't read shit.
Friend: Look at his kid, he's trying to hack into someone's computer.
Me: (Agrees just for reputation) Yeah, damn teachers been giving me bad grades.
Friend: Could you help me too?
Me: (Don't have hacking experience, making shit up) NO, because your not my best friend. And school security is hard to crack.
Got away safely2
Windows 10: Please reboot, I want to update
Me: K, do it
Windows 10, after reboot: I could not update, what do?
I had this conversation with my laptop about 15 times in the past couple of months and SINCE THEN I DID NOT HAVE A SINGLE SUCCESSFUL UPDATE. WHEN A NEW WANNACRY ROLLS OUT I WILL BE THE FIRST VICTIM BECAUSE AT THIS POINT A POTATOE HAS MORE RECENT SECURITY UPDATES THAN I DO9
Nothing interesting. Just 11 GB ram using and increases steadily. After restart app the bug was again. Okaaay, I thought. I reboot my PC, but bug was adamant. Well, then I update phpStorm and everything became fine. Ok, JetBrains, good idea to say user about new release version and make update:) Seriously, it works fine. I think every company should adopt this idea:)8
The WTF moment when I realized that the main production DB server was configured with **dynamic** private IP. After maintenance upgrade and reboot the rest of environment stopped. When I explained to sys admin what caused the production breakdown hi still did not get that :/3
I'm working on a laptop in the shop and Explorer crashes. I try restarting it, and get RPC endpoint call errors. On reboot, I get this.
Russian roulette but 3 will probably crash instead of 1.13
I use my windows computer usually for nothing but games. It's even a shared computer with my wife. But today I have to code something for this computer so I installed IntelliJ on it. And when it was done installing, it asked me to reboot the computer.
Honestly, I feel so nostalgic. Like I am a child again. Thank you IntelliJ or reminding me about my childhood.11
Fucking apple & Mac OS..
So.. Before high sierra, you could create a USB using boot camp.
All good & dandy without too much fuss.
No longer. instead it automatically mounts & copies the os onto a apfs partition(?) and without as much as a mention or warning it just reboots immediately when it's done.
Srsly, not even a silly "hey, we need to reboot"..
Now, I could probably have gone to diskutil, formatted, set the boot flags and copied the files..
But rly, Nvm that.
Besides I might actually find some use in a windows install.
So needing to install windows to create an USB is acceptable.
But Bloody hell, it's been a while since I've been in this triggered from something..
T_T no warnings, just force reboot into windows.
Added a bond interface in my Proxmox installation for added cromulence, works, reboot again, works, reboot once more just to be sure, network down.. systemctl restart networking, successfully put the host's network back up.. lxc-attach 100, network in containers is still down apparently.. exit container, pct shutdown 100, pct start 100, lxc-attach again... Network now works fine in containers too.
Systemd's aggressive parallelization that likely tried to put the shit up too early is so amazing!
I'm literally almost crying in despair at how much shit this shitstaind is giving me lately.
Thank you Poettering for this great init, in which I have to manually restart shit on reboot because the "system manager" apparently can't really manage. Or be a proper init for that matter.
And yes I know that you've never had any issues with it. If you've got nothing better to say than that then please STFU. "Works for me" is also a rant I wrote a while back.12
Set up a 2GB upload to run and a 6GB folder to compress while I went to do an errand. Came back to find computer had rebooted itself while I was out. No reason for it in event logs. Just a random reboot for giggles, I guess. File upload aborted with no resume and I’m unsure if the full folder compressed. Have to start over.3
So Apache and I don’t seem to understand one an other.
# sudo service httpd restart
I’m still here waiting for this fucking useless thing too turn off 10 minutes later.
I’m starting to think it would have been easier to reboot the entire server.6
Well that's it folks,
Australia has started to shutdown and become the isolated island it once was again, even more so with states shutting down independently.
Atleast we have the intern -
fuck, got to reboot the modem... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
where was i, oh yea -
internet right? It's not like the NBN wasn't designed to have every fucking Aussie using it at once or anything 🙄
Alright, I need to reboot Windows *click*
OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE!7
That's what we call "conf" in school. Normally we have to lock our computer everytime we leave the table. If we don't, anybody can reach your computer and make kind little bad things to your computer :
alias firefox="firefox youporn.com"
alias emacs=" ls"
Changing keyboard sensibility and many things !1
I did not use my Windows 10 since weeks. Now I wanted to play some games and I got a bluescreen. It reboots several times. I did not miss it.8
"Did you manage to reproduce this issue in-house?"
Yes, off course we managed to reproduce your fucking random reboot issue that happen to two in thousand customers and might happend just after boot of after several hours or days or not at all when you, as you said yourself, were doing nothing. While at it we also turned lead to gold, water to wine and resurected Elvis (although he is a little bit grumpy and mumbles something about brains).
Things I understand but still hate #457:
"You must restart this _application or OS_ for changes to apply."1
If microsoft developers were ever on life support, we should unplug then plug them back in and see if that works!9
Updated windows 10, was a feature update or something
Reboot and can't boot into Debian, grub error
I've been using arch for like 2 months now. And I can even play games on it quite smooth (cs and stuff). But I'm missing Witcher 3 and Rise of the Tomb Raider. So I took all my courage and booted into win10. Guess what they welcome me with...
Edit: this was after the 5th reboot. Now I'm getting fucking bsods like nothing because of bad memory allocation :( fuck this shit. Has anybody of you got a working windows PC? I just want to playyyy 😢10
*trying to install arch linux for the first time*

Installed windows 10 in a virtual machine, fresh install no updates.
"Windows, what are you playing at we both know you are lying, how many updates do you have?"
"Away and install them NOW so that you don't reboot on me when I'm doing something important, ok?"
Remember, windows update rules should be like bathroom breaks on a long car journey, everyone goes before you leave and only when you stop for gas
When you just want to reboot but Windows decides to do this for 20 minutes.
Windows is the best OS :^)4
TLDR: There's some days where the Gods of IT are not with you. Just lost a whole day of work.
So this morning, we (me and my team) big performance issues with our web app. Lot's of requests time out, big latency, etc
Try to ssh to VPS, latency of 10 seconds between user input and output.
Usual checks: RAM ok, Proc ok, hard drive ok, reboot server (20 minutes), update/upgrade
We decide to call OVH. After 15 minutes call, we try to reboot in rescue mode. Reboot fails at 60% + everything freezes.
After an hour, OVH opens an incident ticket on +200 vps instances (including mine) everything is down during +1h
Finally everything is okay ! Even had time to migrate my new database schema.
Still, quick heavy on the mind but feels good to go home with everything working out correctly
Just tried to install the Windows 10 anniversary update, got 26% done did a reboot and I got a black screen and my laptop doing literally nothing. A couple of resets later, "Windows is restoring a previous version" at least they made sure it can restore a previous version.5
I think this is a new record... # of "Productionized" personal apps running at once
... Or maybe it means its time for another full reboot...2
A client once send me an email and wrote that his internet connection is down. I replied asking him to just reboot his pc. He thanked me later on.... What can I say....5
Sat at my desk this morning, computer incredibly slow, lots of error windows saying files could not be found.
I decide to reboot. Post is slow. And that's a HDD failure. I lost half of my storage. Luckily, almost everything is for projects so it's all in the git repo.1
note to self:
install the fucking network tools DURING the Arch installation, BEFORE you reboot and remove the install media.
wrote this handy dandy notebook guide up because i get tired of having to look up the archwiki12
I've just spent half and hour trying to fix a problem when I remembered that Arch upgrades kernels in-place and I just have to reboot.
Because deleting the CURRENTLY RUNNING KERNEL is definitely a sane thing to do...
Be me at work, 12h nights shift, 4th day like that
Following online course on machine learning, instructor says we'll use python 3.x as the interpreter for the project, boot personal laptop and start pycharms, create the file, choose right interpreter no big deal
pip install the modules I need for the course - done, try to import them.
Doesn't work, first reboot, still not working, browsing Internet for answers, no ideas, reboot again (you never know) reload pycharms, browse Internet again, find out the modules only work on python 2.7.
Wasted 45minutes for this shit
Feels good bro.2
Windows Update prompted me to install the 1809 update for Windows 10 recently.
I left the machine for a while and came back to find it frozen at a completely blank screen.
It eventually restarted...and got stuck in a continual loop where the Windows logo would flash for a second and then instantly restart again.
The restart occurred so early in the boot process that I couldn’t even get it into recovery mode or do anything with it to fix it.
So I had no choice but to reinstall Windows from scratch and reinstall and restore all my software and files. Took about 7 hours.
Corporate Training: to lock your screen press ctrl+alt+delete and select lock screen.
Non-Dev: need to lock screen, ctrl+alt+delete... It's not responding... Ctrl+alt+delete.... Wait why did my computer reboot.... NOOOOOOOO... MY WORK
Me, Dev: uhm I just used Win+L...2
PC crashed while in the middle of a build, "ok, shit happens". Reboot, pc is super sluggy (a BSOD kinda does that, I guess). Reboot again and I check the event logs...I didn't find the problem, but at least my pc is sorry for whatever it was doing earlier.1
sudo pacman -Syu --force
Openfire and owncloud no longer work.
sudo systemstl status openfire
Java exception relating to SQL.
sudo systemstl status mariadb
No such service mariadb
WTF why would that get uninstalled, how the hell.
sudo pacman -S mariadb
Everything now works again
Arch can be a confusing place
Maybe that force was a bad idea.5
At first I thought, damn there is something wrong with my phone, it sounds odd.
No I think one of my ears has stopped working. :-(
Damn ageing !
Was fine last night before I went to sleep..
Maybe a reboot tonight might make it magically work fine tomorrow..
I miss stereo..
This will degrade my performance in 3D shooters if I can't figure out where that bullet which just missed me came from !
Also makes it harder to code games with sound too..13
That moment when Windows locks your computer, forces you to reboot, only so it can install the 28,348 updates that you've been pushing off for the last week.5
Fed up with f@_#-$&@_ Microsoft bullshit, computer refused to install IIS without a reboot first. Rebooted, got bluescreen with some error like APC_Index mismatch since it was hooked up to an external monitor (this has happened before, but only when booting into Windows, not Ubuntu), god knows why now since it was hooked up to same monitor before reboot and worked just fine. All this because some stupid school related task requires Visual Studio and a web project-solution that takes ages to run/debug which I would rather build and devug through attaching remote debugger to the running IIS-process. Instead I get into a boot-loop when the screen is connected, and when I connect the screen after a normal boot it restarts itself. Why is it always like this? Most of the time is spent just to setup the environment or making Windows work. F#&#_ this and the assignment, goodnight.1
Windows 10 - You unreliable fucking piece of shit excuse for an OS!
The fucking thing smells urgency, I tell ya. And it fails when you need it the most! The worst part is, you can't even open the start menu without letting a whole bunch of background tasks and network fetches from eating your CPU cycles and system memory. I don't need your fucking suggestions for your lame ass apps. I don't want to give you feedback about the "Microsoft experience" (which I'm reconsidering), I don't want to be prompted every 5 seconds to reboot my PC for system updates to take effect. Stop fucking with my productivity!
I'm ashamed of it, but I want to share my tifu-story:
My colleague asked me if I could rename his windows user name because he married and changed his last name. I changed it in the Active Directory, but he got some problems when he wants to log on. On every startup his old name appears. Simpliest task. Let me google that.
Easy going, let me just change this registry entry. Reboot. Old behaviour. Okay, I changed some of the other entries. Reboot. Yeah, his new name appears. But wait a moment. Windows just nulled his entire user profile and deleted all the data. "oh, haha you have a backup, right?" - "no, I saved everything on the desktop, all my work is gone!"
But at the end, the boss was mad at HIM, because he doesn't used the file server or any backup system.
i am not a smart man5
When you spend the entire afternoon wondering why a simple piece of out-of-date php doesn't work. Then you reboot the server and realise the IT Crowd taught you everything.
I don't generally agree with the death sentence, but maaaybe it should be allowed specifically for the person who created the current iteration of Windows Update. Just got woken up by a video playing on my computer, which happened because Windows fucking Update thought it was a good time to reboot for no reason.
So everyone here has probably seen many posts ranting (or should that be rants posting) about windows updates in the lastest version of Windows. I have seen one too many rants about losing work due to this well it happened to me to. ..almost.
Since I have an editor that saves work automatically I didn't lose anything but just had to restart by applications and set my windows how they were again. It wasn't planned and I had previously manually disabled windows updates but they still ran and rebooted my machine...grrrrr!
Doing some more research I found my previous fix which worked in Windows 10 1511, and 1607 versions (anniversary update and prior) doesn't work in version 1703 or 1709 the Creator's and Fall Creator's updates respectively.
If you have version 1511 or 1607 you can just disable the windows update service and windows store service and appxpackage services to completely stop windows updates and unexpected reboots. I ran it like that for over a year from 2015 well into 2017. After being impressed with the newer Fall Creator's update I decided to manually update to 1703 and then to 1709 which is the latest version.
The problem is, the old disable service fix isn't enough now in these newer versions. To disable updates in the newer versions you have to stop the usoclient which is the update orchestrator. Simply disabling the services doesn't work anymore.
Changing the file permissions of the usoclient will work and stop the scheduled tasks from firing.
Here ya go, no more unscheduled reboots. YOU pick when you want Windows to update:
So I actually got an update for my PC at work, proposing me to postpone it or to do it later. I postpone it to one hour later, since I'll be buying food for lunch, it can update and reboot.
When I came back from lunch, laptop is asking me to postpone or do the update right now. So I sigh because the laptop just stayed locked without doing anything, and ask it to do the update in 4 hours, when I'll be leaving.
2 minutes later, it forces me to update with the "30 min left before rebooting", so I sigh again, closes everything and reboot.
Since it's a Windows, it's slow on booting by definition. Plus launching Slack, Eclipse, Firefox, VLC. Takes time. Plus launching the server. +1000 files to compile then deploying.
I lost 20 minutes because of that edgy bitch called "update".3
Started up KiTTY to connect to my virtual test server per usual when I couldn't establish a connection.
Nothing too unusual so I do the typical troubleshooting I make sure host, port and authentication is all correct and it is. So now I open the display for the virtual server and start looking at ip info, host info, checking ports and everything is completely fine.
Now I'm getting frustrated so I start running things like configtest in apache, using systemctl to check the services status, even restarting virtualbox in my windows 10 devpc. Still cannot connect!
I start feeling hopeless and just shut everything down, the whole operating system.
Computer boots up and I start my usual thing of creating workspaces, opening editors, starting servers, etc.
I open KiTTY again and launch my virtual test server..
Somethings you just can't fix without a reboot.
Worked fine in previous PC under Windows 10..
Newer PC, works fine if you unplug it, and plug it back in again, then when you reboot, it forgets its there..
Plug it in via an unpowered USB hub and it installs the driver for the IR receiver, then, when rebooting, no issues !3
So I have a dual boot Windows 10 / Ubuntu 16.04.
This evening, I finally decided to update Ubuntu to 17.10.
Note to self, never try to install Ubuntu from the live usb when trying the "demo", prefer to install on boot, because this fucker encountered an error, forced me to reboot then decided to occupy the whole disk and wipe Windows out.
I'm sure that Ubuntu 17.10 was made by DevRant, that's totally something you guys could do 😂5
When Windows tells me I require permission from my own user account to delete or modify contents of a folder...
...makes me wish I still used Linux...
...but many of my favorite PC games don't work with Wine...
...so I guess I just have to suck it up and reboot my damn computer so I can delete this folder. 😡3
Me installing software:
>"Software installed, must reboot"
>"Not the latest version, must update"
>Uhm, ok then
>Update dialogue pops up
>"Program is already open, please close program"
>"Update complete, must reboot"
Please kill me3
Today in office one lady came to me and asked "how to reboot iPhone when it stuck?"
I'm android guy and using iPhone only for Dev purposes. So I never encountered such issues and was a bit confused.
Then I were smoking on the roof with coworker and asked:
- When last time you seen unresponsive android device?
- Hmm... I dunno
- And what about iPhone?
- Yeah, my wife's iPhone 7+ and daughter's iPhone 6 stuck regularly.
We laughed, but wtf?
Then I've tried to remember when Linux or Mac were stuck. Nothing.
Don't start holy war, please. Just noticed that.13
What is with IT and their obsession with error messages?
"If there is no error message, I cannot help"
Your not going to get an error message because the problem is VPN is messing up my DNS due to tunneling. There is no error other than me not having Internet if VPN disconnects unless I reboot.2
I started programming on a new POS machine and I noticed that sometimes it reboots randomly. The boss and the assistance said that it's a well known bug and happened also in all old machines. Ah.... Ok.
And that shit costs a lot and it's stupid as fuck. Really? How the fuck is it possible? Sometimes I think that if I put a cardreader and a printer in a 50$ android phone I would save a lot of time6
Fuck you VS Code! Have to reboot my VM every four hours because that piece of shit starts glitching on the screen and freezes the entire system when I want to close it!8
this is so cool! will be mirroring all my sites there the week of launch and building some servers to start hosting company.
Passover cleaning, for a keyboard geek.
On the right, I duct-taped a funnel and mesh screen on a vacuum cleaner motor, since I ran out of compressed air.
The keyboard is a Model-M reboot from Unicomp, bought on Massdrop (https://www.massdrop.com/r/JDLA54).1
Can someone tell me what does this mean? Every time I reboot my MAC ( MacOs Sierra: MacBook air: version 10.12) Every time i reboot and put in the password for my login this pop up keeps popping up once I'm login. I try finding the keychain first aid, but it doesn't have it. I know this isn't ranting but if someone fix this befor3 can you help please.3
Playing saxophone and learning music theory helped me a lot. Also reading books and being a scout boy contributed getting my mind away from computers and clearing my ideas, like a reboot or something.
Get to work, reboot your machine to try to fix VS throwing way too many exceptions...get locked out of the computer cause keyboard stoped being recognized...Go to IT...now the mouse is not being recognized either...Well, this morning is just going downhill...
None of my friends have interest in learning programming. But I have desire to become a programmer.
I am daily spending 2+ hours other than my work time in doing online courses. But I will feel good if there is anyone to talk and discuss the concepts that I learned.
I am talking and thinking in programming terms like ( Data structure , algorithm) within myself...
Guide me guys... !!!8
I have a really slow machine and it's running Ubuntu, so annoying. I launch VS Code and Chrome, 30mins in and it fkn hangs, then I have to hard reboot.2
I fucking love my SD card reader driver fucking up my whole system. How did that driver even pass BayHub's fucking QA, causing a bluescreen of death right during reboot of Windows? Anyways thanks Microsoft for that nice new bluescreen not telling me anything about the fucking problem why Windows just crashed. But at least it looks nice, so that it's more fun working all night and half a day to find the fucking problem myself. Fuck this.1
Tonight I spent 5 hours installing arch. After seeing everything go smoothly I do the final reboot, only to watch the grub command line appear on the screen. I tried to boot into my arch installation but it kept talking about kernels missing and stuff. I thought I learned a ton but Fuck me. Now I'm installing neon kde just so I have my fucking linux desktop ready. Maybe someday I'll make it...3
In a call from customer support to SRE:

dump all the money i have left into investments, which i see as a random lotto, like a business, real estate, or literally lottery?
bail and become a vagabond?
Which one of you is it that works for Apple or Microsoft and writes the code that tells a computer to slow down, lose its internet connection, freeze, reboot, crash your browser, or generally respond to a request for a website with a friggin' spinning beach ball of death right at the moment of highest productivity or crisis?10
My Windows laptop randomly shut down 3 times tonight. I then had to completely reboot, but it looked as if the computer just went to sleep. Always at the worst times too just as I went to do something. Seriously, Microsoft?3
Ask to get DB back ups done, contact DB team => cant log in => have 2 contact wintel team => they believe a reboot will sort it => contact customer => permission to bounce given => contact team to bounce => shifted back onto DB team => bd team open lync conversation about bouncing => no reply to mails if all is well in the world => sit at desk cant start dev cuz know will be sucked into aroganizing this brewery piss up with a bunch of bums....... cue putting on headphones and blasting some music at 11 ,,,,,,,,,,,, been waiting to deploy for 4 hours !!!

Using a raw vmdk on windows and not knowing that after reboot windows decided to reorder my drive numbers. Then proceed to install a Linux onto an other hdd deleting the partition table and many things. Happily vbox crashed before it wrote a lot then I realized that my drive is not there anymore. Anyway photorec saved my life. I survived without any major losses.
Now it updates.
Stayed for 10 freakin minutes on "Working on updates. 100% complete. Don't turn off your computer!" and then went back to 0%. FUCK YOU WINDOWS, FUCK ME FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO RUN LOL ON UBUNTU. FUCK FUCK FUCK.3
So my desktop just crapped itself big time... 😧
It has been having trouble booting for the past few weeks, going into a rave flashing all the monitors, but usually recovering after a couple of minutes.
Today a got even more rave and after 10 minutes and a forced reboot, all I get now is a cursor... 😢
Guess it's time to reinstall Windows, hopefully that will fix the missing icons and thumbnails too 😅4
I reckon Microsoft could have made Windows updates less dread inducing if they took a leaf out of apple's book and included a "reopen windows on login" option.
Whenever there's an update for OS X I just install it knowing I'll be right back where I was when I reboot, There's probably some architectural reason why this can't be done but surely if frequent, mandatory updates are going to be your strategy this is a must have option for the user?1
So I want to boot to no-failure mode on windows 10 to reinstall my video driver...
Start menu > Settings > Security and Update > Restore > Advanced start > Reboot now > Fix > Advanced settings > Settings (yes settings submenu after advanced settings one) > Reboot (total: 9 clicks)
Computer: Press F4 to boot to no failure mode
Me: *Press F4*
Me: *Waits 5 seconds*
Me: *Press F4*
Me: *Is confused*
Me: *Looks at keyboard*
Keyboard: *Is not powered*
FUCK YOU MICROSOFT !!!
*Reboot to normal mode...*
Win+R "msconfig" > Boot > Minimal > "Would you like to reboot your computer now" > Yes
*Reboot to no-failure mode*
EAT THAT PIECE OF SHIT !5
Today the impossible happened. Windows 10 refused to update! Clicked "Update and reboot" .. aand.. Nothing! It's like christmas in November.1
If the are rebooting The Matrix franchise, that means there is a chance Nokia will reboot the 7110.2
I used some kind of application on a compact disc (don't remember what it was) and it asked to reboot in order to do some stuff before Windows loads. Apparently in order to do so it overwrote MBR along with my TrueCrypt loader. Didn't make rescue disc, so lost about 300GB of stuff.
Noooooo... all I wanted is to quickly reboot to Ubuntu! Why Windows, why?!?!?! So much time wasted staring at this screen, so many lines of unwritten code...6
Service necessary for many applications is failing at 8am this morning, it connects to a virtual directory. Trying to figure out why it's failing, application is fine, Middleware is fine, asked to reboot virtual directory servers "no we can't do that" fast forward to a wasted day trying to find the error, asked again to restart, they said yes, what do you know it started working again
FUCKING FUCK WINDOWS FUCKINGHANGS IN LOCK SCREEN AFTER WAKEUP FROM SLEEP FOR THE THIRD FUCKING TIME TODAY FUCK YOU WINDOWS. JUST CAN'T REBOOT EVERY FUCKING TIME3
DAMMIT WINDOWS! WHY EVERY TIME I DO A LENGTHY FILE UPLOAD OR BACKUP OR COPY OPERATION YOU GOTTA FREEZE THE HELL UP SO I HAVE TO RESTART AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHERE THINGS LEFT OFF?!
It’s like the Microsoft programmers wrote a function:
How the heck does nvram magically forget your boot entries while your system is up...
Worst reboot of windows I've experienced in a long time, ugh.
The boot/*.efi files are still present but no entries in the menu...
My phone died today...
I was following up on a production ramp-up... Open one of our tracking dashboards through corporate VPN and while loading... It crashed...
Reboot after non-stop reboot... Cleared cache, factory reset... Stabilized for an hour or two and it's crashing again...
I give up... Rest now my friend... You did good, you did good!4
I know maaannny rants like this exist, but it's just sad that so many devices run 1. windows and 2. an very old version of windows.
This is an info display in school, we managed to reboot it and have seen it's IP. I'm not gonna post it because I don't want to get into trouble.
Is there a way in LineageOS to reboot directly into twrp? I remember in the old times roms would include an "advanced restart menu", but I cant find that anywhere.
I am always sweating, if my phone is going to get wiped, whenever I have to access twrp via "wipe everything" boot menu, because I can never know if something deleted twrp and it will actually wipe my phone.6
I just tested a VPS and it was kind of impressive: I just had shared hosting until now and it is a total difference when you're having full root access.
Kind of hating these greedy shared hosting fuckers now ;)
Because it was just for testing purposes, I wanted to try the mysterious command "rm -rf / --no-preserve-root".
It was working for around 5 minutes and after that literally no command worked anymore!
Not even reboot worked :P
Then I tried reboot it via the VPS panel :) End of the story: vps panel chrashed with error message: unable to start vps :P
I thought it was kind of funnny and nice to share & thanks for reading 'til here!5
I turned my computer off. When I came back it said "Reboot: System Halted".
I think my computer has a halting problem.
Did you guys know that the computers in the back of the Delta airlines' seats run Linux? Lol just tell them it's not working right and they'll reboot it for you 😋3

Computer does a BSOD right at the end of a tiebreaker competitive overwatch match where the enemy is about to cap the point and win. I'm one of the tanks. Hard reboot and back in the game within 45s. Just barely hold them off in overtime and win the match. Epic!

fuk pulseaudio and its mother cancer systemd >=0
idk how or why ppl defend this shit. have to use pulseaudio because i've tried to NOT have systemd and pulse audio before but arch insist everything needs pulseauadio.
i have never, EVER, had pulseaudio just "work"and be consistent for me - on any distro.
reboot a minute ago, some how all my audio is fuked up. bass is off. balance went to the right. volume went down to almost nothing. wtf is this shit? you've been around for years, these shouldn't still be problems.1
5 GB magically lost!
Had to partition a drive and i used easeus partition manager..reduced 1 partition from 100 to 95
Said computer had to be rebooted so i said ok...went to some boot screen of easeUs and had to hard reboot computer...ended up with this
Had to copy 95 gb worth of files and format drive with windows partition manager to fix it
Wasted 2 hrs
Yesterday I tried to install virtualbox to be able to run gitlab-runner with a Docker executor locally. I completely fucked up. After a reboot, I'm not able to run GDM/gnome/cinnamon(segfault), so I have to run Xorg as root without any window manager, and it sucks. I have to work all day with this shitty config.
Fuck myself, Fuck Arch, I'm switching to manjaro7
Stayed up all night to "just add another MySQL instance as replication". Guess what's not working: the instance that worked till yesterday and the new one. Somehow, MySQL ignores statements from the config, looses the server-is every now and then and forgot that I stopped it, so I need to reboot the whole server.
I guess we're the only one how say "just this thing and I'm off for today" and ending up doing this "just thing" for 20 hours.

I got a compulsory SAT/SUN reboot on my work pc this morning when I logged in.... after i just rebooted it... BTW today is Monday...
you done fucked it up!
I had a god damnit run, finishing the last mammoth task of our sprint.
Then, i decided to take a 3 minutes bio break.
Came back to my machine just to realise that this little OS bitch sneaked up on me, used the few seconds of my break to do a unholy, reboot of doom and damnation.
As a result, my virtual machine dropped it's php-storm settings...
I lost my precious focus on the task and my last nerves to figure out the correct settings again.
To cut a long story short.
We missed the aim of the Sprint.
The Sprint failed and i got a half-baked module.
At least, all the complicated businesslogic is proper covered by unittests.2
There is a time in every programmer's life that the only thing to be done is to take a deep breath and reboot the server.
When your program runs on first compilation itself and you are not sure how it happens..... !!!! Blessed !!!2
Things I say to my clients when I know that a reboot is required to fix their issue but I don't have enough evidence to prove it to them :
"... On any computing platform, we noted that the only solution to infinite loops (and similar behaviors) under cooperative preemption is to reboot the machine. While you may scoff at this hack, researchers have shown that reboot (or in general, starting over some piece of software) can be a hugely useful tool in building robust systems.
Specifically, reboot is useful because it moves software back to a known and likely more tested state. Reboots also reclaim stale or leaked resources (e.g., memory) which may otherwise be hard to handle. Finally, reboots are easy to automate. For all of these reasons, it is not uncommon in large-scale cluster Internet services for system management software to periodically reboot sets of machines in order to reset them and thus obtain the advantages listed above.
Thus, when you indeed perform a reboot, you are not just enacting some ugly hack. Rather, you are using a time-tested approach to improving the behavior of a computer system."
I am new to programming. I know the syntax very well in Java. How can I improve my logical thinking , problem solving ability that can land me in a decent job ?8
Anyone else get slightly terrified after apt-get upgrading and want to never reboot again.
On a side note.. I return!6
Windows update service on servers...that trigger a 15 minute countdown to reboot when you log in. Even under business hours.1
Python will occasionally forget how to do comparisons, so a statement like "if x == y:" will sometimes be false even if x == y. And then when someone else tries it or you reboot, it's all fine.5
Me boots Windows. "Updates finished, please reboot" >.>. Is it just me who wonders why Windows can't just wait until I decide to reboot?1
"Success! One more step to go. Please restart your computer before you start Visual Studio Community 2017."
Why the ... what the flying ... what the fuck did you install that requires a fucking reboot? Did you install the compiler in my fucking graphics driver for accelerated build times? What year is this, and why does Windows want to reboot like a fucking superhero franchise?!
I'll just change which directory this thingy uses from here to there..
How hard can that be !
First, the shortcut to that other place, is no longer valid.
No problem, I'll just put in a new shortcut.
Of course, luckily I can remember you have to do it a certain way, or Windows doesn't work correctly..
I accidentality click on the old shortcut, so whilst I wait for Windows to tell me it doesn't work, instead of it doing that, it decides to crash the OS and I have to reboot..
Note, this machine doesn't like rebooting !!!
As such, I rarely ever ever reboot it !
So, an hour later it boots correctly..
I change the shortcut, everything is fine, it seems..
Now, I just have to move some files from here to there..
1+ hour estimate..
45 minutes to go now !4
Last night I wasted over an hour fiddling with efibootmgr, because newly created boot-entries got removed after a reboot.
Turns out, my latops uefi auto deletes entries with a missing loader and it recognised them as such, because I had a typo in the kernel-name.1
I was setting up a network minutes server. Install, check for updates, reboot, and the grub entries for the os are gone. Atleast I still have memtest
Nothing like rebooting to hopefully fix a problem when you're in a coding groove. Thanks visual studio.1
working for an hour and a half and my computer decides it's time to reboot without even asking...then I have to wait 20 minutes while Windows updates.
Thanks a lot Microsoft.6
Freaking bitchass smartphone that decides to reboot out of FREAKING NOWHERE ! Are you trying to beat windows update ? Cause you goddamn did... freaking hell and if it wasn't enough i had to lose the freaking bigass text i was writing2
I had to contact my ISP's tech support because I suddenly lost my Internet connection. I explained to the guy who answered that my router was working fine, and that my devices could connect to my WiFi network, but they didn't have Internet access.
He was so confused because he didn't understand that WiFi and the Internet are not the same thing. He then made me reboot my router and reset my configuration (like I hadn't done that before) and eventually ran out of ideas and scheduled a technician to visit my house next week. What a moron
wrong display resolution on my laptop
removed display drivers, reboot to disable driver signing, wanna install fixed resolution drivers, now its the correct one by it selfe...
why did i wrot that inf file?
I modified the registry on a co-workers computer to execute a reboot command when they logged in. I removed it for them after they were about to start deleting random files in safe mode they thought were viruses.
One of the top reasons why I hate windows is because updates are taking soooo much time. I mean when I install a greater update on Linux e.g. Linux mint 18.2 to 18.3 it takes 1 reboot and about ten minutes of installing... When I install any windows update I have a 50% chance that Microsoft decides that it is a update which requires a restart which means in reality that my pc restarts about 3 times and takes at least 30 minutes for updating. WTF1
So, I tried to set uo hibernate on my hdd.
It takes longer to start than to reboot, but atleast I learned a bit more about my bootloader / systemd ...2
Was about 13-14 years old, on my first laptop, a HP Pavilion G6. I had Ubuntu on it, and tried to write an iso to a USB with dd. Didn't work, so I forgot about it for up to maybe a week, and was playing Minecraft one day when my laptop froze and nothing was responding, so I did a hard reboot.
No operating systems found.
Many tears were shed that day.
Took me maybe 6 months to realize that the "botched" dd probably caused the wipe.
Still don't know why my computer was still running... If anyone thinks that the dd didn't cause it I'm curious what your theory is.4
when you get excited about working on the train instead of playing games on your phone but then have to wait thirty minutes to reboot because windows 10 and Dell laptops don't care about computer people.
Current task: take a word document of test cases and turn them into code.
My issue with this: the document appears to have been written by a drunk 10 year old with no knowledge of the system or development in general.
Half of the English makes no sense in the document, let alone the technical points.
My favorite mistake that is all over this document, "this will not cause an error but will reboot the system" they're the same thing in our context, raising the error reboots the system.
I want to cry.
MiniRant on windows
This morning i noticed that the led on the mute key of the keyboard didn't turn on.
I started swearing because I thought the led died (relatively new laptop).
Long story short: reboot windows, the led magically works again.
The only think i can think of is this:

Guys how to get engaged in projects that contains lots of files (either source code or other data's).
The size scares me. So I always procrastinate to get involved in it.
Help me guys !!!4
After coming back to my desk I cannot unlock my screen. So again I have to go to my Mac or even Windows to google my shitty Linux problem. Nothing particular turns up. So I switch to another tty and rummage through the process list. Kill some java that took 11GB of RAM and Firefox that always keeps some zombies. Nothing.
Grep the processes: oh let's nuke "light-locker". Bingo.
The only downside of this brutal unlock: I cannot lock the screen again. So in any case another reboot? Wasn't this the standard repair method of that other OS that should not be named?3
My Microsoft surface boots into a bsod after every windows update reboot... Hard reboot helps. While my desktop bios can't reboot with the reset button at all. Means, doesn't boot afterwards until 5 second power button hold...
Another on workflow:
When the IT department thinks it's a good idea to limit the snooze function in windows update to ten minutes, and of course, you think about that half a day you'd need just restoring the workspace and get back into the groove, so you decide to postpone and remember to do so again.
Then like clockwork (literally and figuratively): within twenty minutes the machine reboots because you were too focused to notice the notification again.. And all is lost.
Ok, so windows does a good job restoring everything now, but that's Windows 10 while work uses 7. The conclusion is the same: IT department should focus on their tangled cables, things they know.
That Microshit motherfucker, Windows 10, is constantly messing up AMD drivers by "updating them out".
I did a clean reinstall, moved past the retarded Crimson installer hanging up on branding components, and configured everything. I had to reboot, and that little twat of an OS prompted me with "just a second, Windows is updating" reboot screen, after which the drivers are fucked up again. And that is the second time it has done that.
I just had to move my screen back out of my punching radius, otherwise I would probably had to buy a new one.
Linux with GPU passthrough seems to be the only sane option theesedays.7
Every, single, time, Windows, updates, and reboot...
I do not know what I did wrong with this Mint. It works perfectly until I reboot to Windows. So Windows update itself, I have to reboot and, after finishing all Windows boots, when I come back to Linux it does not work anymore.10
updated docker for windows a few days back.. I have to reinstall on every reboot in order for it to work...
its either Hyper V being a dick or the docker guys screwed something with the update... fml1
When a reboot kills your Docker service and the recovery script bricks the hardisk, it would be nice to have a not so old backup
1) Starting long running process on a Windows test computer.
2) Switching back to working computer and coding.
3) Switching to the test computer to see how the long process is doing and sees the Win10 reboot screen saying "We are getting a few things ready for you..."
Just gotta love it when MS decides when it's a good time to reboot. :-(
Damn it XenCenter! Why won't you reboot the VMs like I tell you!? Force reboot also didn't work. Now I have to shut it down and restore a back up VM. This has been going on for the past 2 weeks!!
when windows 10 crashes and your vagrant takes AGES to get up after windows forced reboot on the crash.
Also found a stupid bug in some validation code I have written. SHAME.1
When you pull the drives out (or change boot order) because fast boot on that (New, clever) motherboard seems to ignore bios keystrokes on boot... only to have the system blinking saying no boot drive found...
Why didn't you just take me to the bios?!?
Wooow, Windows just crashed my touchpad and USB drivers to force me to reboot, woow... Unbelievable... Peice of shit
(the drivers crashed right at the moment when the windows notification that it will update popped up)
Had to reboot to windows for a small task
The task was done in 3 minutes
Now i have to reboot back to continiue working because time is tight
I was angry and hoped it would be over as soon as possible
It is already updating for more than an hour and a half(it is not stuck)
and its only 32% done
*me crying in the corner*1
When you have high performance set, yet your lame CPU won't get above 0.75Ghz, so you have to constantly reboot to hit the 3.50Ghz jackpot1
Today wasted around 5 hours installing nginx, apache stills working and keeping listen on 80 port after uninstalling it reboot finally the thing was i dont change the fucking dns of the server and trying to connect to the domain 5 hours later tried to connect to the ip... Fuck my life1
How to force a reboot without being rude:
"click 'no' to reboot now, otherwise click 'yes' to manually reboot later."
Late night thoughts: what if I write a simple script to reboot my PC and run it automatically after each start up? How do I ever stop it?
Seems quite dumb but I can't think of any easy solution..1
What do you think about the new Youtube layout?
New Youtube, new bugs.
I reported a bug when it was opt-in and guess what, it's still here: in subscription feed's listed view, scrolling is laggy after loading more items with stepless scrolling (e.g. Chrome w/ touchpad). So many unnecessary animations.
It's just really frustrating when you try to info large company about a bug and they do nothing. The previous ones are also still there...
I guess it's time to reboot my Youtube Data API client project, which I started just for this reason.3
Me: Time to work on wife's website.
Server: Unable to Validate DMI.
Server: HAHA no CPU information and still no DMI
Me: Remove drives part from SSD.
Server: HI THERE.
Confession : I swear -> my sweet Arch Linux was freeze in my laptop in my super lightweight tty env + tmux after about to quit demonstrate my friend about vim in vimtutor on yesterday.
(1st freeze after 1 half a year of using it. Maybe something wrong about my rot potato, but hey -> its a things ;)
(no data lost after hard reboot after all.)
(First time it failed without me thinker it ;) -> Its not my fault Jim~)12
Colleague of mine deployed application using @reboot target in crom, LD_PRELOAD and screen. The only positive thing is I'm not responsible for infra :-)
For some reason I thought it is nice to work from home and finishing my driver after working hours, until kernel panic reboot kernel panic reboot kernel panic re.... Lucky me I found someone in the office pull out the power. Lesson learned, nerver work remote if you might need to physically reboot the your device.1
Great winows update caused all my vms to reboot breaking my dev environment. Thank you windows 10.1
My university's IT department can't even install debuggers on the computers, so if we're on linux and need to debug something, we need to save the code to an usb stick, reboot to windows, boot a VM and install valgrind there (or manually install the needed .deb files, which ends up being even more of a hassle than just rebooting)2
fuck peoplecert. youre software is crap. i dont have anything against yoire requirement that you need to see that someone doesnt cheat. but WHY is my cpu burning and so buggy. i needed 1 hour until the client started the test and somebody was able to see me and the desktop. 10 restarts of your client and one reboot IS TO MUCH.
By the way: i passed
Look, C++, I love you and all, but I don't want to reboot my computer every time I mess something up.1

Is it possible to know everything and every concepts in computer science or should I focus my career in one particular area of cs... ??!1
what makes a evening better? bluescreen and a automatic driver error scan after reboot... but no problem at the moment, luckily
Just updated my OP2 to the 3.0.2 through the bootloader, because it wasn't capable of installing it through the OS... I guess that was because I was running the Beta.
When it was done I got the lovely option of "Reboot" or "Yes". I pressed Yes, which sent me to the menu.... ? Well then the reboot option in this menu might work? Got "Reboot" or "No"... I guess someone forgot the meaning of yes and no :P (forgot to take a picture :()
Hey guys. Need your help. I bought a new laptop with Windows in it. I just use Windows for gaming and gave been using Linux for the past few months. I installed it properly, but when I try to shut it down, it shows me a black terminal full screen and on the bottom it says 'try to repair loop, reboot needed, shutdown failed' and this has been happening every time. What do I do?7
My remote server and local machine both run Linux and I'm logged in with similarly formed user names. All I had to do was reboot my local machine and I ended up shooting across a `sudo reboot` on my SSH window! 🤯6
The moment you try new tty and forgot to enable both old and new before reboot....
(atleast, I have bootable usb)
Branch Staff Member: EFTPOS isn't working
Me: Are you logged in as the right user?
*staff switches user*
Staff: Still not working
*remote in and see software had crashed*
*check computer uptime* ... 38 days
Me: Give it a restart
Rant: why do people expect their issues to be resolved magically by IT when rebooting would (usually) fix it?
Updated Linux Kernel to 4.8.3 with pacman - Syu and KDE also updated. After reboot I get the message "Could not start D-Bus, can you call qdbus?"
I was updating packages through Synaptic Package Manager and I cancelled it from some weird reasons while it was downloading 😐 But it installed everything that was downloaded and right after a reboot,every peripherals stopped working 😶 Does this happen often?3
Let's start the week fresh and reboot the PC with some updates. Also because of the while WannaCry drama.
Ok after 10 minutes of 'waiting for profile service' i just pressed the button. Time is precious!
installed xscreensaver on my phone and suddenly haven't had to reboot it in like a week due to unrelated issues
There's this thing I have with flux capacitors that makes me want to reboot my resurrected Moto G all the time! 😂
