Later found that they had just gone to the dad's (i.e my uncle's) standard appliances and electronics store and bought whatever the (clearly incompetent) sales clerk had told them. After a similar incident involving a smartphone my cousin at least stopped asking me for advice rather than doing so and then ignoring it.

Them going there and getting ripped off by the sales clerks is hardly an issue for me, except for how my grandmother goes to the same uncle whenever she wants to buy new appliances or electronics. When she wanted a new TV this same store is the first place that my uncle drove her to and the fact that she had to use her savings account when her use account didn't have enough money on it despite them selling their house not long before is quite telling of how much she overspent on it.

Ripping off people who should know better is one thing, but ripping off the elderly like that store does is just despicable.

You have to restart both devices one at a time. Sometimes it doesn't solve an IP conflict on the first go. Along with some of our devices are old and will take upwards of 5min before I can shell back into them.

Just happened today.
Be me.
Get email from teacher saying the can't print to copier.
I think it's just a connection issue, no big deal.
Go up to see her and send a print job to the copier.
Since we use the store function for the copier, I have to put in her pin to access her files.
Put in pin.
Copier starts giving birth to her files.
Look at her and tell her it's fixed
She yells at me and says it's my fault it didn't work.
Ohwell.jpg


Also,within minutes, the same teacher says her computer is slow. I asked her if she has restarted it in a while. She says she did, and that she does everyday.

Let'ssee.jpg

Log into lansweeper and go to her computer, notice it hasn't been turned off in 4 months. I tell her about it and she yells at me. I just told her to restart her computer and I went back to my office to read Manga.

What if ISPs just dropped customers for being rude? Like it was a general rule. I would love to see the fallout.

A kind of similar thing happened with the game DOTA 2. If you were reported by a bunch of players for being rude (telling your teammates they suck or being a dick) you get restricted to a group of players like yourself for a limited amount of games. The fallout when they changed the requirement to leave from "x games played" to "x games WON" was pretty hilarious. I bet the shit storm would be 1000 times larger.

so he wasn't blaming you and acting like a dickhead afterwards? or did you just leave that out?
>>
>>52277080
no thats not it at all anon. It's that no coding on linux is taken seriously. No one takes linux serious that is relatively normal. People know of it but think it's "too complicated to work with" but people like us, who are smart enough to use it sometimes do. However, Windows on the other hand is easier to use, and is basically flexable compared to Linux and not annoying to install shit. Why any one honestly cares about linux, the only answer really is "CAUSE IT RESPEKTS MUH FREEDUMBS AND THE GUBERMINT CANT SEE MUH LOLI PORN!"

That is literally the only stupid reason. At this point, it's a giant joke that no one even cares about linux. The only things it's good for is shit like a net book, hand helds and phones. Android and iPhone are java based. They work yes but would you use Android on a daily basis? No? Why not? what's the issue? they make their own applications for said devices. At least, in comparisons, you wont get a virus as easily unless you're a complete idiot. And I mean COMPLETE IDIOT. Any one that gets a phone will go "HEY! LOOK! GOOGLE PLAY STORE! HEY LOOK! APP STORE!" No one takes unix seriously because there is no need too.

you can JUST now game on linux compared to years ago. And if you say"It's better for my work!" you're a dumbass. Who fucking cares what you do online unless you are specifically doing illegal shit, the guv does not care about anything you do unless you are a national threat. You're on 4chan, you're on /g/. you're not any more of a threat then my dog. Be happy, make a nice rig, plop on 7 or 8.1 and play games and shit like you're suppose to at this point.

I've never had an issue. You must not know what the fuck you're doing. the only time you have an installation error is literally when something physical cannot handle your program or because the program itself is damaged. The os has nothing to do with it.

Your career explanation doesn't make sense.
Programming/IT has thousands of jobs available despite a "lot" of people studying CS/etc (currently over a million taken jobs in the us according to gubment info just for software development).
Gamedev music has probably less than 1000 jobs already taken in the entire fucking country, the amount of game developers are ridiculously few to the point that most successful indie developers know each other personally and big companies are probably under 100 total, and music is way more saturated and accessible than technical jobs.
>>
>>52283639
basically i heard there are more people into IT than there are people into Music game production. That's what I meant.

Even so, I could do it. And I want to do that. Cause making music is fun to me.

A friend of mine said that I should look into working at the mac store. Told him, I couldn't deal with idiots like that. It's not that I'm not a people person, it's that I can't stand idiots any more. I went to the Apple store one day, and I asked one of the guys what he thinks is the percentage of "user error" that walks in with a busted device. he ranged it between 60-85%. I told him I wasn't an idiot when it came to computers, he got it.

but, maybe it's area. I don't know. Cause I'm here in GA and people are fucking stupid.

You heard wrong. I work in videogames and musicians are a dime a dozen, the field is saturated. You hear about less people doing it because it's not an actual career and scoring a job in the field is a miracle, you need to be both excellent and luck out in who manages to get your demo/contact info, and even in that case many times you get underpayed or even get faggots going "It's good for your portfolio do it for free".
I encourage you to send some mails to people who lucked out and work in the indie scene and ask them about their careers and recommendations. Harry Mack, Chris Christodoulou, those kind of guys.
>>
>>52283898
well alright, I get that then. That would make sense.

then what do you think is the likelihood of getting a game made and on steam?

Why do you think so many people get into game deving and then quit so soon?
>>
>>52283944
Getting a game on steam is ridiculously easy these days and it no longer guarantees any financial success. There's some incredibly bad games there. I mean, look at this for example: http://store.steampowered.com/app/329480/
Game development is hard. Just learning all the things you need to know takes a few years and quite some practice. Then more time making an actual commercial game. A lot quit there as bills pile up. Then of the rest, 95% of wannabe indie developers don't understand that it's a business and they need to do market research/marketing/social media/PR etc. They just want to make a game and hope they luck out. Some make it purely on luck and good taste, but most don't.

holy shit, are you me? my networking class teacher was a fucking retard that got surprised when I connected 2 monitors to a single machine, when I installed nagios on ubuntu server and when I managed to control a hp switch that he tried to connect to via ethernet to the console port(the poor guy didn't know he needed a rj45->serial cable)

and his english was pretty fucked up too, some examples I remember were "expalin RARP?"

also he was the teacher for another class about workstation installation, and divided our whole class to pairs, 8 of them, and made each pair write a document about BIOS, and then complained they were too similar like wtf? how can you write 8 completely different documents about the same relatively small subject.

and when the internet was down I just used my laptop and phone as a hotspot to do the tasks he had assigned, and he said "that is not allowed here" like wtf?

he was also a macfag

also when I brought my PC to the school (our school hosts a yearly LAN event that the students set up) and he just walks over to my pc, slams his hand on top of it and tilts it to the side while saying "ooh, are those LEDs" (yes, I have led strips in my pc, sorry for falling for the "good lookin' pc" meme) and I hear my gpu fans start to rattle...

well, I have erased most of the fucked up things he did from my brain... luckily I dont ever have to see him again.

just thinking about him makes me beyond mad.

Now online:
You: can i have the file path location and you know i am not refererring to the block and cylinder, of my apache error log
You: its a cpanel server
Jijo: the error log is in /usr/local/apache/logs/errorlog
You: WHO PUTS SHIT IN THERE?!?!
Jijo: By default cPanel apache error log is on this location
You: Well, I don't know who put them in charge... I will file a ticket about that.
You: one second please
Jijo: okay
You: WHM PHP Configuration 5.2.9 says error logs will go into 'error_log', this is the one with like PHP Notice / Warnings 'asdf' does not exist etc
You: What about that file?
You: My php error log file has at least one million entries.
You: (just like my ex girlfriend - LOL thats why shes my ex)
Jijo: This is the exact file for apache and php error /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
You: Thats a pretty big log
You: thats what she said
Jijo: what issue are you facing?
You: the whm php configuration 5.2.9 editor says the php errors, warnings, etc will be in error_log
You: i dont see any php error or notice in the cpanel/apache file
Jijo: Do you have any error while accessing your site?
You: yea
You: its all internal 500 errors
Jijo: Please let us know the link
Jijo: also provide me your server main Ip
You: whats the typical cause sir of a 'graceful restart requested'
You: ours is doing that every 16 minutes or so
Jijo: We will need to check the server.
Jijo: Please provide the server main IP
You: whatever
your apache and cpanel goes down more than my ex girlfriend
Jijo: We will check the cause for this and have it fixed. Please open a ticket with server login details
You: ITS BECAUSE SHES A SLUT
You: Will open ticket.
Jijo: okay
You: Do you have any advice?
Jijo: We will need to check the server first.
You: On my ex
Jijo: Sorry smile emoticon

(contd)

You: Ok, pretend she is Apache 2.2 with PHP 5.4.3 and MySQL version (who cares what version SQL, shes a whore)
You: She went down too many times
You: What do i do?
You: What is your advice
Jijo: We will need to check the server for the cause. And optimize apache, php and mysql server if needed
You: It shouldnt be hard she is like slackware unix, everybody is using it
You: Should I replace it (her) with a newer version? (younger whore)
You: I dont know what to do
Jijo: Please provide your server main IP
You: Ok
You: I will probably just get drunk and surf porn, this other chick doesnt wanna go out with me either
You: What should I do?
You: The other Ubuntu of the office looking pretty hot, if you know what I mean
You: I kind of want to upgrade her system, if you know what I mean
Jijo: Sorry I can only advise you on your server with us. Please open a ticket with your server details, if you face any issues on your server.
You: Ok
You: If i upload her to the server will you give advice?
You: Also, rm -rf?

(contd 3/4)
You: Definitely
You: I will open a ticket on our server going down
You: You dont know what causes it to 'graceful' restart apache every 15 minutes? Whats the common cause? It may be a crash
Jijo: This happens when the parent apache process kills the existing child process after finishing their current request. We will need to check your server for more details
Jijo: Before we can proceed further i will need your server main IP address.
You: Alright
You: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here.
It came to me when I tried to classify cPanel and Apache and I realized that it's not actually software.
Every application on the internet develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but cPanel and apache do not. They move to an area and they multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way they can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. cPanel and apache are a disease, a cancer of this planet. cPanel is a plague and we are the cure.
You: ZendFramework is pretty fucking awful too.
You: ...
You: I said apache and cpanel are spreading
You: What can we do?
Jijo: Before we can proceed further please provide us your server main IP address
You: Ok
You: How do I?
You: get that
You: i mean how do i get the ip
Jijo: Do you have a VPS created with us?
You: http://123.222.111.122/
