First Exchange crash today. Fuckin' awesome. I love when the 10 people in my immediate cube-farm-area all start jabbering about email not working...

Luckily my boss was around. I might have actually discovered the underground cause, but for some reason the cluster service needed a restart.

Openstack.  Don't get me started.  It's a clusterfuck of a technology.  Yeah it may rule the world in the future but right now it's deep in the midst of too-many-open-source-cooks-in-the-kitchen and unbridled opensourcy enthusiasm and despite my idealist side, I desperately want one single uber-corp to lay down the law and pull the fucking project together so it's not a rambling mess.

good. something I can wait to look into for a change...

Ugh. Yeah, pretty disappointing, but now we know what we really play like against competition. We were certainly not a #8 team. I'll be happy if we manage to stay in the top 25 by end of year. We're too young.

cats actually do tend to heal differently. they tend to abscess more. Depending on size you may want to take it in. I never did see one on a cat though. For bigger ones, on dogs, the vet I worked at would stitch in a pressure bandage after drainage to prevent its return. If not, scarring can happen and ruin the conformation of the ear, leading to worse problems; once again that was dogs, not cats.

being scared is going to happen no matter what you do to recuperate. Start slow and small like Pal suggested and build confidence.

You need to go to your IT office before spending any money. It's probably on their end.

This is probably true. Since you already updated drivers, about the only other thing I would expect them to put you off with is antivirus. Make sure you run a scan and are fully windows updated. Then go to them and explain the issue. Either APs can't support the number of connections, or they have an artificial cap on number of connections.

Also, do you always sit in the same spot? If so, try another desk, if possible.

How do you sign on to this network? From your description it sounds like this is an open school network, but is there any authentication (like a sign in page or a registration form you use for personal machines on their network)? If you have a link to your school's IT services, particularly with wireless information page, post or send to me in PM, and I'll try to take a look. Don't hold your breath or furiously refresh this page as I am extremely busy these days, but I'll try.

down 7lbs weight wise and my abs are peaking through.  I have roughly another 15-20lbs to go but I think my LBM is increasing so I'll probably end up at 2:05.  Endurance is through the roof now.  I really like this diet because mentally I feel very clear, and I'm never hungry.

And that's really all that matters. The one that works for you is the one to do.

Young team that, while it didn't have me screaming (more than normal) during the first half, did have me pondering a less than stellar season. I think it's going to be 2-3 more game before we see how things will pan out. I was a bit ticked with the "let's go another season with 2 QB's" approach, but once our starter got settled he did pretty well. He's got a decent arm, but his adrenaline was causing fastballs on screens and his accuracy was a bit off, early. I've got  shit ton on my mind these days, so even while I watched the whole game, I didn't get a feel for things like defensive line, or secondary, which is where I normally look.

yeah why did you even make this thread? you're training wrong for a dude who wants a 6 pack and you refuse to do the simplest thing which includes logging your diet. its not hard to weigh meats and veggie and if there isnt fructose in them you can assume you can have infinite veggies. its pretty easy. do you think checking labels for carbs is easier?

cardio makes you fat. sorry dude but you'r training like an endurance athlete and you're eating like someone who shouldnt be doing any cardio. recipe for failure.

Didn't say I wouldn't change my routine OR my diet.  I said I'm not logging my food. 

Fair enough, but you need the data to make the right choices. Commit to two weeks and see if you really are eating what you think you are.

I know it's fucking hard. I'll probably have to do it off and on the rest of my fat ass life. Sucks, but if you're serious, it's the only way to be sure.

in other awesome news, my boss, who I will be sharing duty with, was just told he will be running 2 main projects over the next 4 months, minimum: New ADP system for HR (with consolidation/elimination of other systems currently doing the various jobs), and migrating our accounting/finance suite (Deltek) to the cloud, to be maintained/managed by a 3rd party. When he (and Director if IT) said "no way, you need to spend some consultant dollars" he was told "no, you will not be doing helpdesk work" so I am now literally responsible for everything. Even things I don't know exist.

So this is either the best opportunity in my life, or the worst disaster that will ever happen.

Some successes. I have (on its own subnet) the site server running deployment tasks. I can PXE and NetBoot; I can even NetBoot to DeployStudio so that I can phase in tasks/jobs in Altiris, that mimic our current DeployStudio processes.

That said, I used the SIM to update to the latest hotfix, to support the agent on my Win 8.1 Update 1 VM. It was kind of a whim and I didn't think things through, nor read the release notes on how you are supposed to do a real upgrade. I fucked up a few agent versions. Tomorrow I will try to unfuck myself. Looking back on the fuckup, it makes sense how they describe the order of operations.

You know what you sound like? Every fucking fatty that was in my fat camp classes. "I really am active." "I really eat pretty healthy." You can eat yourself to death with the "right foods" too.

If you want to see a 6 pack, that's what you have to do. So, either get with the program or realize that you don't want it bad enough. It really is that simple. If you are doing everything so correctly, than why is it still there? It ain't magic. Sorry Tucc, but you've reduced yourself to the tough love approach since everyone has told you the same thing. So keep the fat or do the work.

I'm certainly not heartless. I do have empathy for them, but once again, no one made you send the pics. Stay in control of your stuff. Once they leave your person, they are out of your control. Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you should. And if an SO cajoles you into doing it, it's still your fault for giving in (and they would be an asshole for forcing you to do something you don't want to do). I don't see why this is such a crazy idea.

In case it needs to be said, but was certainly implied, this is strictly for private photos leaked by an SO. Someone stealing your shit is different. It's preventable, once again by not taking the pics, and also through using cell phone locks due to encryption, but I have more empathy for that. If you take photos for money, like in the OP, expect it to come back and haunt you later.

In all cases though, the person that leaks them is an asshole; unless the pics-for-money situation for a website, as I don't see that as a leak.

I believe what Iven said, though with the caveat that it would be mostly for young people. Don't send no nudes, won't be no nudes.

As a person who went through Katrina, no one is ready for any major outage and you should not depend on your government to get to you for a week, for planning. I'm pretty fucking dumb about it too, considering my experience. My wife has started the whole "keep a half tank of gas" but I need to get onboard as well. I have researched emergency rations, but haven't purchased any yet. I do have a camping water filter pump, that could be used in emergencies. I also have a Red Cross solar and crank radio/flashlight/USB charger. I also keep a backup propane tank for the gas grill that could be used for a bit. Oh and basic first aid pack. I also got the opportunity to take a BERT class, based off of CERT:

that gives you some training on initial recovery, triage, first aid, and organization - beyond a typical first aid class, which I also have with AED training - so have have put some work into it.

when I was hired, he was the Linux Team lead. He has been promoted a couple of times to manager, Sr Manager, and now director. As a senior manager, he started the VMware project and grew it to VDI. He's kind of the topic expert. The senior Admin on my team that is leaving was the other one, to a lesser extent. We also don't have a lot of people. We support something like 250 people with 750 machines with 11 people: 5 (now 4) Windows admins, 3 Linux admins (including web admins and grid), and 2 DBAs; plus Director of IT. Add in one Graphics/Web Dev guy, one CCNP for networking/phones/video teleconferencing, and one NetSec guy who also does network work and you have our whole IT dept.

Glad to hear you are alright.  Never experienced one, I hear you never forget your first.

*Your first real one

Your first usually feels like a big truck passing on the street and you have to ask yourself if it even was an earthquake until you verify via google.

6.0/6.1 for 10-20s and there's no doubt and you wonder if this is the one, or if it will ever stop, or get bigger; I'm still an earthquake n00b though. I'm sure there are Californians who don't get flustered until over a 6.5 (remembering this is a base 10 logarithmic scale)

I was secretly hoping that our licenses were so screwed up that we'd have to drop support due to it being too expensive to true up. I would then be looking into Puppet for Macs and the new Desired State Configuration (DSC) for windows; very puppet-like and native Microsoft product.

Since Altiris has been on my mind for a few years now, I have to say I hear nothing but trouble on all cross platform solutions: KACE, Altiris, LanDESK. And that's really the deal here, I am on the Windows support team, who also support OSX server/desktops. I'm pretty sure the Linux team has been using puppet for a while now - at least in testing. Those guys don't open up about much though and probably feel like they would have to pickup desktop support if they took on Puppet for Windows, which they successfully dumped on us years ago - even Linux desktops. Our Director of IT came from that side and still does a lot of those tasks all the time, in addition to running our VMware infrastructure, so that might be another hurdle. So, whatever I do, will involve working around that. 

My near term goal was to get Altiris all the way working for Macs and Windows (maybe convince them to deploy to Linux desktops, as well), to prove we are finally getting our money's worth from the maintenance agreement, then get into testing the above solutions, to show that, "OK, we are paying $XXXX dollars/yr on this complicated mess, but I can do just as well - for free - using these tools, which are open-sourced, industry standards. This would allow me to get some experience in  SQL and PKI, in non-business critical areas, that would help when I picked up support of Exchange or our HR and/or Accounting apps.
