Schrödingers WhatsApp, I both have new messages and I don't have new messages up to the point I open it and look.
Thanks for the useful notification!

Once you realize your server is hacked, just disconnect the ssh and forget about it. It is known as Schrodinger defense.
The server will be both okay and fucked at the same time until someone get back into the server.1
you have the USB in your hand. you don't know if you have it in the upright position or not. you can only find out if you've got it right when you try it!... otherwise the you're holding it both wrong; and right!4
We had a tutorial on how to use spark/Hadoop.. part of the tutorial was the installation instructions for Ubuntu vms.
The Prof insisted we used an older version of Hadoop (v2.1.5), so naturally this required pulling older repos and older versions of java.
Naturally, some of the people in the class got some namespacing issues and garbage left from uninstalled packages.
Now, the tutorial was geared towards business/math people, not com sci. So most of the people didn't understand why apt didn't let them run certain commands (even though it very clearly just asked for them to run autoremove or autoclean, like in the "error message"). When the Prof and their "experienced TA" saw these messages, their recommendation was "make a new fresh vm".
The fuck? I heard that, run over and was like no. Just run the suggested command, it's literally a simple issue. And the guy didn't believe me. I had to sit him down, show him how I literally typed what the console was asking for, and everything just worked... The guy's response was "well that's Linux for you, its really complicated and can never trust anything, this time it worked, but next time it might not". Dude... Do you even know what you are saying? Like you are a supposed expert, least have some understanding of the package manager you are using. Maybe things will then be less "schrodinger cat".
God damn I can't wait to be out of this stupid fucking school. Never going back to academia.1
Client is "always" right. Except when he's wrong, but it will come back to first statement.
