Call me old fashioned, but I still use Owncloud and I intend to do. Nextcloud feels to much "hip'n'cool" and that does not always end well.
When I drove up the parking lot, I had a feeling that this was a special day. Not "good" special, but "BAD" special.
I parked my car, went out, double checked to I got my headphones with me and walked in.
People where not at the places, they where talking to each other. Not talking but everyone where at some different place.
I have seen this before, when people is not working at they desk - that means that something is not working as it should and they are not telling.
I went directly to the serverroom, and directly noticed that one rack was completly black. No power. And the monitor server was one of the victims - FUCK.
"Do you have 2 factor auth for the database?"
a customer asked. I stared on the wall in front of me and suddenly fel and urge to punch and piss on something.
I took a deep breath while thinking to myself
*Oh boy, here we go. Another retard*
I put on my nice voice and asked:
"What you mean?"
The customer seems confused, as if my question did not make sense and he said:
"TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION! Dont you know what it is? To make the database more secure."
I was fucking right, this person reads to much shit. The fact that the email signature of that person said "Wordpress Developer" made me more angry.
I, still with the nice voice asked
"How would that work?"
"Two factor authentication when I am connecting to the database."
"So, do you want it by SMS then? You'll get alot of messages if it is going to send you one every time a query is made."
The following 7 seconds was dead silent until I heard the person hang up.3
This was the first intense work day for month, seems like people is coming back from vacation now.
I worked 4 hours straight.2
> me when angry
" what the fuck you stupid dev stop doing crappy shit"
> me when trying to do stuff
#!/bin/bash set -e
echo "no please"
I should stop blaming devs for doing crappy stuff
But fuck, why are so many so called devs so fucking stupid?
Or have life decided that I should get all the stupid ones?
If the last one is true, Am I the Jesus for sysadmins?2
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.9
I have been absent from devrant for atleast a year (deleted old account, created a new one with a cool name just in case I wanted to return).
And the community is still the same, love it!
But not that much GPL.5
Had a customer today that claimed that crontab did not work as it should, and he has proof of that (in form of some very abstract logs).
Well, I guess noone can rely on one of the most fundamental binary in the unix world.
