OpenVPN Server  fucked..
I somehow fuck up and now the open VPN server won't accept my SSH Auth key.
And I connect through my VPN server to my local network where all my Services/Server are running and now I can't reach shit..
Well, only 4 more hours until I can go home and fix my mess :(5
I wrote myself a ImageViewer for Windows. (see my website) and to test every possible situation which can cause the program to crash, i wrote a little script to rapidly load new pictures. like really fast importing, we are talking about every 50ms a new picture. And here comes my fuck up. I forgot to implement the disposal of the pictures. this means my program unloads the pictures but they stay in the RAM. So i managed to fill my 16gig of Ram in about 10 sec which causes Windows to close unused windows/program and then it crashes.
So Windows decided that my Crashreport from my Program was not imporant enough to keep open.
It took me 3 crashes until i figured it out.. :(2
Fucking asshole piece of shit ass licking cock suckers (am i doing it right? @AlexDeLarge) Cryptominers.
Why do you buy all the GPU's?!
Yesterday I might have killed my GeForce 980.
It is still 30+°C here in Germany and my flat isnt much colder. So yesterday before my lateshift i gamed a littlebit on my pc and went to work @ 2pm. When i was finished with work @ 11pm i wanted to continue on my personal project.
So i went to turn on my Pc just to see that its already on, i forgot to turn it off, and the game was still running. how did i know? I heard the sound through my headset but my display stayed dark. (fucking shit). I rebooted my pc but the monitor stayed dark. i switched the HDMI from my GPU to my Onboard graphic just to be greeted with my login screen. So far so good. I checked the temp of the GPU, and it was running on 88°C, the.whole.fucking.day!
Today, one day later, the GPU is running cool on 35°C but still no picture.
So yeah long story short, RIP 980 and fuck those high GPU prices6
It is 23:00 here in Germany and im about to start the nightshift in the workshop, but its 31°C outside and even warmer in here.
How am i supposed to write the CNC program?!
Its like Satans Anus in here. Fuck this climate change, we need to stop destroying our Planet.
Anyway, im going to tape my portable Fan to my swamp ass and hope for the best20
do you know what grinds my gear?
when a company thinks they have to lead the industry with developing one big project after another to reach the so called "Industry 4.0" and using this pathetic shit for our Intranet..2
I have a low cost gameserver running at my home and my friends told me that said server is apparently offline.
So i wanted to check whats wrong, but there is one thing, im @work and no PC is near me so no chance to ping my local server to see if it responds.
BUT i have my trusty VPS which i can connect to via my android phone (Termins app / SSH) so i logged onto it and send a ping requests to my local server which was succesful!
tl:dr ping my local gameserver from my VPS which i reached from my Android phone2
If i sacrafice my own freetime to help a fellow .NET Dev on a helpboard, by writing almost 300 lines of sample code (because i dont know the variable names in his code) and he answers with "Copy and Paste didnt work, i think your code is wrong.."
Am i allowed to find where he lives and punch him right in the face? Fuck those ungrateful people..3
Please be gentle, first rant here.
I'm a hobby .NET Developer, so nothing serious, but when a "close" friend asked me if i could help him, i saw my opportunity to show my skills.
Said "close" friend is working for a non profit agency and deals with a lot of people, so he asked for a database with some extras. The task was fairly easy and i needed 2 weeks (besides my real Job), to get what he wants.
The big day comes and I show him my work. He was very pleased with it, and also I did it for free, he paid me actually really good money for it. I designed that DB as idiot proof as possible, but i should have known better.
2 month went by without a single crash or any other Problems, but yesterday i received a call..
Him: Your Update broke everything!! fix it asap!!
Me: What happend, I did not push an update for 2 month.
Him: You A**hole, its all your fault!!
After like 5 mins of swearing, I agreed to come over and have a look.
Oh boii, you would'nt believe how stupid some people can be..
Let me tell you, he got 2 files "ProgrammName.exe" and "ProgrammName_Database" and this idiot of a Person thought "hmm my PC ist getting kinda slow, let me delete some junk, so he goes ahead and deletes the whole Database and calls me stupid names, because he lost all his data, and no, MR.I GOT 20 TOOL-BARS INSTALLED AND I DELETE SOME JUNK ASS FILES, I DONT HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR STUFF!!
So now you know why i called him "close" friend..19
