How did they lose 30,000 files because of naming? Didn't they have backups?
Dilbert_X wrote:Yeah anyway, I've spent the last six months digging through 20 yeas of files to try and figure out what a company was making and how.
1. Buy Company
2. Fire all staff
A good number of the folders are named "Not this folder, use the other one!"
Also a while back a business unit was transferred over, the file and folder naming was so fucked up 30,000 files were lost, probably due to max path errors.
Also don't let mentally ill chinese people with little grasp of english decide on structure and syntax.
No they're just small PCs

Speaking of spammers, how are spammers able to post on bf2s? I thought they were placed in a 'special area' until they were approved by a mod?

Maybe you should bonk yourself on the head

For the rest of the day my left hand shooting was a good deal better than normal and in fact better than my right hand shooting, and I did better than normal in a match I rarely shoot.
Maybe Douglas Adams was right with his pseudo-injury theory.
Now I don't know if I should smack both thumbs before a match to maximise my scores.
Yeah I know what QoS is but apart from the fact that 99% of people won't know how to do that properly, basic QoS doesn't really scratch the surface with what this can do.

you can throttle for web traffic or devices using QoS rules on any consumer-level router m8. don't have to pay £100 a year for the privilege. ditto ad blocking. i have free ad blocking plug-ins on all my devices. do you watch lots of videos on your phone? why?
it obviously works for you and ye fair enough m8 but seems a highly specific thing.
This isn't an adapter for the PC but last week I upgraded my home Wi-Fi with Plume and am very happy with the results. On every speed test I've done my phone is getting exactly the same speed and latency as my wired desktop, in some cases the phone has actually gotten better latency than my PC which is nuts and I can't quite work out.
DesertFox- wrote:What kind of network adapters would y'all recommend? Switched from ATT to Xfinity this summer and at that time I switched from a wired ethernet connection to a Linksys adapter, which was a brand my brother had used for a while and said worked fine. However, it's far more common than I'd like that my connection either has short disconnections or downgrades from the 5 GHz to 2.4 GHz band.
Because I had been wired before, I'm not sure if this was potentially happening all the time and I was just insulated or if there's something else afoot. I'm still trying to troubleshoot things like router positioning, but it's just often enough to be frustrating. Is my adapter brand just shit and I am blissfully unaware?
Just skipped through parts of this but got a huuuge dose of nostalgia just watching the bases with the UAV radar spinning etc

Have you flown in a glider before? They are awesome, especially on a winch launch. The acceleration is immense.

Not even unaffordable, compared with some cars, especially a share.

I'm mainly gonna be using it for Windows multitasking lol

I'm very close to deciding to buy this but keep getting held back by the fact that it's only 1440P and not 2160P (seems like there's no 40"+ ultrawide 4K monitor yet)
I think that's mostly because there was a defect with some of the panels which cause a light leak issue, supposedly it's fixed now. If I got a faulty one i'd just return and get a replacement.

“Oddly enough, last December’s ‘war game’ was a novel coronavirus,” said Mr. Kwon of the KDCA. The simulation featured a South Korean family, traveling back from China, suffering from an unknown pneumonia.
Hope you're alright m8, did the test come back ok?

Had to shut the office down and request all employees get tested.
Coworker's family member who they live with was symptomatic, but coworker did not disclose it until after the family member tested positive. Coworker was still coming to work despite knowing their family member may have covid-19.
Stay safe everyone
I've had a pretty stiff/sore neck for the last few months. Dunno what caused it. I've been ignoring it thinking it would go away but it didn't change.

For some reason I'd never even considered the Channel Islands as a holiday destination but after looking it up I'm going to book a trip in a few weeks for a little getaway. I'll probably take a ferry instead of a plane because of the 'vid

Dirk Benedict, a prostate cancer survivor. In 1974, medical doctors recommended surgery, but he claimed to have cured his cancer through a macrobiotic diet recommended by Gloria Swanson, his co-star on Broadway in "Butterflies Are Free," and by exercise and fasting. Over a period of 3 years and under the guidance of Michio Kushi, according to his book Confessions Of A Kamikaze Cowboy, beat the cancer. He continues the diet to this day.
I'd sort of forgotten about macrobiotics in general but it's something I should read up on more. Thanks for the posts Sup MindWhile working on Georgia, Georgia (1972) in Sweden, he made the first contact with a macrobiotic diet and changed his eating habits drastically. He was 26 at that time. A few years later, doctors found that he had cancer of the prostate. He refused to accept the usual treatment and moved away to a secluded cottage. Dirk managed to cure himself from cancer by following the rules of his macrobiotic diet. When he got his part as "Starbuck" in "Battlestar Galactica" (1978), the doctors stated that he was in good health.
I keep doing this too. I guess I just read the first 3-5 letters and stop reading
