I got a new computer recently. I got it with an evo 970. I tried installing the Samsung controller software so that I can view the health of the drive.
No go. Why?
Looked around and everywhere they are saying turn off raid. I checked in bios. Says my drive is not in a raid volume.
Okay, now what?
Look at manual of laptop maker. Says there is a mode that allows you to use either VMD or RAID on the drive. Apparently I was in VMD mode. I had already backed up the computer at this point. Yes, I suspected this was coming. So I changed the mode.
Okay, I have Aomei backup and linux boot disk I made using Aomei. Linux boot disk won't boot... Well fuck.
Luckily I have my old computer and a Windows 10 install disk. I install Windows 10 again, install Aomei and proceed to try and restore.
4 hours later... I dunno how long. I went to bed.
Wake up and test.
I try disk repair.
So I boot into Windows 10 install disk to look at partitions. 5 or 6 fucking partitions. It has installed 3 partitions into the space of one.
Delete all the fucking partitions. Cause fuck you!
Okay, lets try this again.
I make a window pe boot disk this time.
I do restore while I am at work.
I get home.
Check partitions and find only 2. Better than last time.
I try disk repair.
Search the net. Literally: "Aomei restore no boot"
Someone says, just assign drive letter with drive C using diskpart.
Seriously?! Disk repair couldn't figure this shit out by context?
Seriously doubting this solution.
Now, I am an engineer/programmer/computer genius. I have been learning how to fix this shit for over 30 years.
How the fuck is Joe Bloe ever going to fix an issue like this? I feel sorry for the technically un-inclined. I honestly don't know how neither Aomei nor Microsoft cannot solve restoring disk images by setting a drive letter. How did this not get backed up by Aomei? How did this not get detected as one of the most common problems with a disk restore? Why has this been a problem with Aomei restore for over 3 years? I love Aomei. It works most of the time. But this is terrible. The tech world is definitely a shit show at this point in time.
I also read that VMD actually makes the communication to the drive a bunch faster. Not sure if the samsung drivers do the same. So there may be a tradeoff. Oh well. I can see the temperature of my drives now! Woot!2
Started new job.. left Facebook.. and joined devrant.. much productive week it has been. Hopefully I will find new friends here.9
Apple paid bounty hunter 18k instead of 250k by silently tweaking their help page, so it seems like the bug is less severe.
Dear apple, I defended you from baseless and opinionated attacks just like I defend every company that is bashed for no reason, but this is some straight up bouba shit. I will still be fair when it comes to your products, still never silencing bugs and downsides and praising what deserves to be praised, but I will always mention this incident when someone asks me about _working_ at apple. That kind of ethics bs can't be silenced just because I enjoy your new arm chip.
Sigh same bug
Or design flaw

You know a combination of trustworthy coders and retaining improvements would make my having to debug opencv build process unnecessary
Just saying god
Who the hell wants to learn to program in dart, would rather learn php than learn an inutill, and complicated language that only works under Google frameworks. Also, a flutter app weighs twice as much as a app native and closes all the time. I hate Flutter and its community
I officially cut ties with all my family.
Shitty, cringy, egoist people to ever exist.
They treat me like shit. Just use me as their slave all the time and when anything goes wrong, blame me for everything.
I consider you all my family now. Though we are virtual friends but you guys are better than real family.23
We whitelisted IP range X.X.X.X - Y.Y.Y.Y The application works if we connect from within this range but if we use an IP address from Z.Z.Z.Z we can't connect.
I don't get it
My brain does not have the capacity to understand it
How the fuck does my colleague manage to write 12 classes/interfaces for something so stupidly simple??
Two classes, a hand full of functions, done.
Why do you need this level of abstraction?
To mock the interfaces in unit tests? The unit tests you didn't write because "they're not necessary"?
No one will be able to understand this clusterfuck of a module even though it's entire purpose is "read number and write number elsewhere"...26
New phone after 5+ years and it's fucking awesome.
Successfully avoid American and Chinese stuff by going with a Korean brand.
And I fucking love Android. The kind of feature advancement that has happened in past so many years is outstanding.
The amount of customisation options available for the users are beyond one can utilise to fullest.
And my favourite feature is dynamic lock screen pictures every-single-time I unlock. I fucking love it. Makes me cheer up with joy. Very similar to Bing Wallpapers for Windows, but more dynamic.
Lately, I have been hearing from Apple users, that iPhone lacking a ton of basic features, apps not supporting functionalities, and we all know the overall advancement in Apple ecosystem.
While this post was more about sharing my experience with my new phonw than iPhone comparison but let's face it, the reason Apple went bonkers with the first iPhone launch was the app capabilities which led to a larger developer community building apps for iPhone while Android wasn't even born yet.
This is where Google is trying to capture the market now. More devs > more apps > more users > more devs and repeat.25
Calling all those ass boogers so called ExPerTs who publish monitoring stacks that weigh 15000% the target's load... you should form a line and pick numbers to suck my fat cock until you can't spell "wanker".2
The jolly of unriddling multiple DNS zone overrides to a static, single IP of a HAProxy loadbalancer which acts as a router and has domain based backend association rules, but frontend based CORS overrides.
My eyes are bleeding, my brain is defeated and I think I need more gaffa type to put together the pieces of what some puny humans call a soul.
Repeat after me - micro services solve team scalability problems not tech problems.
Please don’t come into a infrastructure meeting demanding this new shinny project be built utilising a micro service architecture when the entire project is going to be managed by three engineers and to top it off, you don’t understand the fucking domain. You cuntwaffle.7
What sort of fucking asshole decided to name it "data science"? We already have a "science of studying data", it's called Statistics...8

Arghh! Designers, why, when you have the actual content, do you design for the content that you can make look the prettiest instead of the content on most of the documents which would not fit your design. Assess the content and design to the lowest common denominator. You lazy, useless cunt!1
I think my favorite MacBook Pro™ with touch bar feature is when I'm changing the volume while listening to music, and the bar bugs ou- ahem, decides that I actually want to listen at max volume, and proceeds to rape my ears.
If only Tim Cook were here, and would grace my humble existence by allowing me to pleasure him with my mouth. It is moments like these that make me feel truly blessed to be an Apple chosen one.2
Since roughly 981 Malaysians are using my app now for helping the needy. So I decided to send this message to those who use my platform , to remind them to stay strong.
Because I begin to see people are fed and slowly I believe someday we can do a better job than our government.10
One of the worst weekends of my adult life. I'm flying to attend my best friends funeral tomorrow. My flight is delayed over 6 hours by a cyclone that already passed over my house 3 days ago. And I am still in my 90 days at my new job so I can't take any PTO and have to take a redeye Monday morning and be back online for standup.3
Ans: What's the relation between Car and Carpet?!6
