'your good with computers right'?
Me: I work with one every day so I guess...
Can you fix a problem I have with my pc? (relatively old man, and I feel bad for him so I agreed)
Next day he had me fix 4 laptops (from his kids) and a Macbook of his own almost all had shady malware and were WAY behind of their windows updates... Like sub wannacry level...
Rip one of day of my vacation 😠8
When I die, I want the R.I.P on my tombstone mean something different
Recursion Investigator Program
On my computer, there will be a file with that name
and when you decompile it to assembly
it will tell my life story in assembly
this will be a death propper for an assembly programmer6
I know it is 1 week too late but i dont care. Im aware that my workbench looks like shit but in reality it is a "creative mess"
@Condor Do you envy me now? I have 1054z that is hacked and has all its features unlocked! I have desoldering station and crappy (very crappy) soldering station. In addition to that i got simple sine/square generator that goes to 1Mhz (old communist poland tech - indestructible and great)
Situation with my pc is complicated. My main pc (with the curved monitor)
-12 Gb or ram (2*4Gb and another 4 that friend gave me)
-radeon 7800hd (*RIP* cant play games anymore 😥)
-256Gb sata SSD
-2Tb WD blue HDD
In addition to that i have a laptop
i5 4 cores, 8Gb ram, 1Tb HDD, GTX1050
I use my lap for gaming now, i even connected that monitor as main lap.
(double monitors yay!) sometimes i use my old pc for minor things but i use rdp for that, it is great experience! (my lap displaying rdp from my old pc on second monitor that was my old pcs main one 😂 i find it a tiny bit funny)15
So, this was about 6 years ago, I had a small HDD of only 80 gigs dedicated for projects code, models, textures etc.
I didn't use GitHub or anything as a backup.
One morning when I turned my pc on I could hear a metal on metal-ish sound, no idea what it was, when windows finally booted ... And I wanted to start coding again, the 80 gig HDD was unformated like brand new ...
Few hours later I gave up and opened the HDD, the arm fucked up the disk inside ... Rip
I started backing up my shit ever since
Question: What was the worst mistake you made in Linux?
So... Because I've finally upgraded my PC (rip money on bank account) I can now run a VM with Linux all the time that isn't slow as a snail.
I installed Linux mint, with 4Gb of Ram and 6 cores, and it runs like a brize, while I play on windows and stuff. BTW I'll be using the VM for programming stuff, since I'm finally at home (homesick because of burn out), when I'm better I'll finally have the patience and memory to learn new stuff and get my projects up and going.
And because I've never really used Linux I'm watching YouTube videos about Linux, and found a Perl I've watched before, #Linux Sucks
And It's great... I get so many laughs, but also, learn stuff I didn't know, like, how Linux Pros make mistakes that Windows users can't even do, like breaking the OS.
So... I would love to know, what was the worst mistakes you ever done on Linux? How did you brake you're system?
BTW this would also be great for noobs like me to not make them... I hope. Since I'll be moving full Linux when I'm comfortable.
BTW @dfox this would be a great wk ...18
Good input field design. Every time I press enter it sent the message. From subsequent tries, ctrl+enter, shift+enter did not work.
ps. don't use parcelforce to courier your PC...
The usual... press F to pay respects.2
RIP the great Jerry Pournelle. Enjoyed his wonderfully witty dawn of PC revolution columns in Byte magazine - Chaos Manor. So many memories.
You guys would have loved his columns and he would have loved devRant 😪
Ugh... those feels when your 2 year old gaming PC is already falling way behind on benchmarks and handling games. AMD FX sucks so hard.5

Good. I was cleaning my PC today and it won't start. Event for a millisecond. MB LED is lit, every cable is in the right place but nothing.5
