Fucking over night updates, and the fucking shitty piece of shit update software. Fucking shitty ass network that fucking disconnects you every 15 min. Not because it's supposed to. But because, just like fucking other thing it shits the fucking bed, everytime it has to actually fucking work. And fucking shitty windows, getting bsod(or some other error). I fucking hate updating.
Okay, angers out. So a little background story. The company I work at supports about 200 factories. So quite often we have updates that needs to be rolled out. Now the downside there is that we have to do it manually, on the other side it's usually not a big problem, because they get small incremental updates.
Which just means it's extra hours.
Now comes the reason for my rant. Let me introduce you to one of our customers. Let's call them fuck face Inc. So fuck face Inc here, has around 70 different factories that we support spread all over the world.
Now fucking face Inc here, is our biggest customer, so we can't really say no to them. Which leads me into the problems. 1. They have a closed network, so no one can get in. Now that in itself is not a problem, the problem is that we have to spend a fucking hour to get their piece of shit VPN to accept us. Now that is if the didn't block our accounts, I had to call my coworker on vacation, so he could give me his login, and authenticate it with his phone. 2. With every other customer, we have a max life span on our computers. So that after like 4 years I think, we tell them to buy a new computer from us. Now when it comes to fuck face Inc. That's not important, so half of the fucking time we have to update them, the 8 year old slow ass shit bsod halfway through. And we have to spend hours to fucking fix it. 3. And this one here is really the big problem. They only want an update to our program twice a year. Which means that whenever we have to update them it takes fucking hours for each factory on average 2 hours, depending on the amount of data. Which is why we have to roll out the updates during the night. And since it's such a huge update every single time, changes of it failing are fairly high. That is if the computers even have enough hard-drive space left to get the new version.
So I think that was enough back story, now to the reason why fuck face Inc. Had decided to royally fuck me in the ass. (not really 100% their fault) So I was updating through the night, looking forward to meeting 2 hours later. But no after it failing to update, not only once but fucking 3 times, after I fixed 3 different fucking problems. I gave up and started the restore procedure, where it decided to only restore one of the 4 databases. When I tried to restore them manually, the computer bsod. So now all I can do is go to bed, and wait for a phone call in about 4 hours from fuck face Inc. Yelling at me, telling me to get off my ass and fix it. Sorry for any grammatical errors, and other English related shit. To tired to really give shit.
Not really a programming thing. But I once forgot to set a server to use a static ip. So after 3 months of runtime, it had to be restarted. And everything broke.2
