    saying "colon" is weird too, "dot" is so easy because it's so common and we say it a lot and it's quick to say.

    Technically you could say "dot dot".

    I hate printers, but specifically ones that resist being set up via TCP/IP port and want to be set up through their software and WSD or whatever.

    Anyone use Brother? We're HP/Xerox right now, but I've heard some good things about them but outside of my own personal printer at home, not any experience with their laser devices.

    working on user's computer

    VPN won't sign in, gives no error message

    I know this problem, it's because they changed the system time (instead of changing the time zone), so i'm guessing some bit of the authentication gets rull mad because UTC is off by several hours

    go to switch it back

    "ah, yeah it wasn't signing in because you changed the actual time instead of the time zone, so the server gets confused and doesn't..."

    "I didn't change the time."

    Q4moQQf.gif

    this is a brand new windows install
    that I sent out to this guy as a bare hard drive, to replace a dying one in an otherwise good laptop

    so what you're telling me is, what

    someone opened your package
    took out your drive
    slotted it into a laptop
    entered in the bitlocker key they didn't know
    it booted up
    oh also the laptop was the same model as yours so windows didn't shit the bed
    then they logged in, with your username and password
    changed the time
    shut down, removed the drive
    packaged it back up
    and sent it on its way

    sure

    I was trying to tell you about a weird gotcha so you could avoid it in the future
    but I guess your stubborn lying ass wouldn't remember a new piece of knowledge anyway

    life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb
    that's right we're on a fucked up cruise / God is dead but at least we have booze
    bad things happen, no one knows why / the sun burns out and everyone dies

    We have lots of Brother printers. They are good if you don't mind a cheap printer that you plan on replacing in 3 years. We eventually decided we did mind, and are currently switching to HP.

    The Brother's we have print quickly and the drivers work well, but keep in mind I run a Linux shop.

    The colon thing is because IPv6 lets you mix v4 syntax with v6 addresses, eg, xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:ddd.ddd.ddd.ddd

    The hex thing makes the addresses shorter. Or maybe it was just so they could write silly words with IPs like DEAD:BEEF:CA1F

    I think the 4 letter word combination would have been smaller than ipv4.

    That is like what, 1.5 million addresses?

    There's more than that in ipv4, which is like 4.25 millionish.

    Yeah, I second this. All printer suck, but Brothers suck least.

    HP is still okay.

    I mean, you still want to avoid the usual pitfalls:

    Never buy inkjets. Laser only.

    Never use a printer's built in wifi. Wired Ethernet only. If it absolutely positively needs to be wireless, use an Ethernet-wifi bridge.

    Never buy multifunction machines. Printers should print, nothing more. (Obvs this doesn't apply to big copiers.)

    But in these parameters then a Brother HL or an HP LaserJet M6xx work fine.

    you can do base32 with 0-9 + A-Z (minus O, I, and L [use 1 or 0] and no U [use V like a roman])

    Wireless printing is a fucking curse, and should never ever be seen in a business setting.

    I get that home users are going to use such a thing because most people's homes aren't wired for ethernet.

    If you bought a wireless printer for your business, you suck at business.

    I have some old Linksys routers that I've thrown DDWRT on and configured as wireless bridges around my house.

    One of them is plugged in to my Brother laser with an Ethernet cable.

    Scanning on those... Do they deliver the scan via email or drop it on a network folder...

    ...or do you have to have scanning software installed on your workstations?

    If they do plain old scan to email or scan to network folder then I can see that. It's usually the workstation software that's shitty.

    I had one hell of a week. Upgraded Two puppet servers. The second one did not upgrade properly.

    On top of that I also got thrown into managing another issue that was also on fire. I had two emergencies juggling all week.

    I fixed the puppet server at about 2 hours past eob today and and the other issue is only waiting on some quick info to code and drop in the puppet module.

    I.think I've slept like 6-7 hours since Wendsday.
