    I read the docs and I tried ESC+L (at the same time) and it didn't work, so Thawmus's secret sauce was do them in sequence

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    so I'm doing some networking testing, needing external access so I have a laptop tethered to my phone using the cellular connection. It boggles my mind how inefficient cellular networks are. I'm doing a traceroute and the number of hops it takes just to get out of my carrier's network to the internet is absurd.

    It's 8 hops to get to an internal router, and the 9th hop is finally the external facing router to connect to the wider internet.

    So instead of an account manager for our accounting software we now have a customer success manager.

    I didn't know that was a thing now.

    Me leaving freaked out my old company. They started doing market evaluations to give significant raises right after I left.

    On one hand good for them. On the other it makes me feel far less valued.

    I'm noticing an increasing trend with various instructions on the Internet starting with the base assumption that you know way more about how to do something than they probably should. Not sure if I should chalk that up to the IT market leaning harder into specialization or what but it's becoming a sharp pain in the ass.

    Having a lengthy exit interview and seeing the things that actually precipitated action from management versus those that actually feel important as far as reasons I left was... validating

    Manager quit, staff have started to do things like call local vendors and get quotes on colour printers for their offices. Unreal.

    I've come across an odd issue on 4 different computers where a black or white bar appears on an active window and stays there until the program is taken out of full screen mode, system restarted, or the video buffer cleared.

    3 of them are the same model of old Dell about 3-4 years old, the other is on a brand new Lenovo P330. The Dell's have AMD cards, the Lenovo uses on board Intel.
    - On the Lenovo the issue happens in Microsoft programs only - Explorer, IE, Word, Excel, Outlook. Fun part is that you can actually click straight onto the desktop when it is there as if the toolbar hasn't loaded.
    - On the Dells, the Issue happens in any program.
    - Drivers are fully up to date on all systems.
    - The issue will follow the input if the screens are swapped

    It's simple to clear the issue, either put the program into full screen and back out of that is an option (Chrome F11), or clear the video buffer (CTRL+SHIFT+WIN+B), just wondering if anyone has seen this before and whether there is a real fix.

    I would feel the opposite: you single handedly forced them to give raises to people.

    You could call previous coworkers and just tell them "you owe me."

    Because you’ve been rebuilding your entire PKI system and deploying certificates to all of your devices, at the same time as writing a bunch of scripts to deploy software, at the same time as setting up a new syslog server, at the same time as building an informational web page to query a database with tomorrow as the deadline, at the same time as updating your virtual environment. No wait, that’s why I have so many tabs open.

    It looks like this former client is going to hire me, but I'm still thinking about next steps. Are y'all familiar at all with any good training for agile/scrum or PM stuff? A friend is telling me that the solid move is to get out of helpdesk-adjacent positions and shoot for something more along the lines of 'product champion'

    alternatively, anyone looking for a sugar baby?

    Maybe go for PMP or CAPM ? I know there's some good resources for that on Udemy, but it's my wife that knows about those subjects.

    Edit: This is the one she took for PMP, but I believe it's good enough for CAPM too.

    Backup solution is a good thing, but note how long it takes for you to get your hardware.

    That's how long you'll be down when there's a critical failure.

    Hey linux friends - running a cloud compute VM of Debian Jessie. Apparently whatever Google's apt-get source mirror was was depreciated and I am trying to change my sources.list to point to debian.org.

    I have edited the file, saved it, but every time I run it it is still looking for the old GCE stuff and getting 403 errors. Do I have to go manually remove and reinstall those packages? Is there a cache of the list somewhere to flush?

    Edit: Nevermind, got it. It was an extra, very deceptively labeled file in the sources.list.d folder. Deleted that and everything worked fine.

    I swear to god. My last job was the first one I had where I needed to work with normal users in a normal IT environment, rather than more specialized infrastructure.

    One of my questions from this day forth will be, "In any way do you expect me to care about print toner?" That'll be a pass/fail step of job selection.

    Most office printers these days will order toner automatically if you let them. Even some of the dinky little networked Brother laserjets I work with have Amazon Dash built in. The Xeroxes have software running on a server reporting usage back to the leasing company as well as handling the toner orders.
