EAT THAT PIECE OF SHIT !5
I have a dual boot on my portable computer, (windows + linux) I was feeling very bored and so I decided to boot on windows to play some games... Wrong idea !
1) Windows anniversary update
- took 1h to complete
- rebooted 3 times... and each time I forgot to select windows instead of debian in grub
2) Video card update
- It was using the integrated graphic card instead of dedicated GPU in games...
- It reseted all my very specific configuration (basically max perf, min quality) to factory default
3) Couldn't play any multiplayer game cause I'm on wifi and the connection sometimes drop
Not sure why I keep this windows partition :/
Before you tell, I tried wine, my games are not supported yet :(2
Little job story about dev server cleanup :-)

Chef: Guys can you take a look at the server, I see postgresql is taking 51GB
[a few minutes later]
Ops 2: otherwise we can truncate the whole database
*Dev 1, 2, 3, 4* D: !!!!!
Dev 1, 2, 3, 4: ok we are looking at it

Dev 2: I cleaned 13GB, more can be cleaned if we do a backup
Dev 3: I also cleaned a few gigs2
1) Webapp to choose the beer
2) Computer vision and robotic arm to get the beer
3) Motorized plate delivering the beer at our desk
Typical Belgian Hackathon :DDD4
Develop the IT culture of students, facilitate speech and ideas. Replace targeted narrow project by problems they need to solve by their own means.
Best: a school project with tons of cool stuff: NodeJS, Express, jwt, Jest (unittests), VueJS, pwa, Mongo, Python, OpenCV and tesseract
Worst: the teacher complaining all the time on the background colour of the website6
My favourite Linux distribution is Windows, it just works and has thousand of settings available !8
Tomorrow is the final technical review on a project we're working on with friends at school since September. The subject was not entertaining but we had a lot of fun trying stuffs (think Node, Vue, Raspberry). I've been writing my part of our final report all the week-end (security and deployment) and it is very nice to see how we managed to do something cool out of that subject !
