See how he paid thousands of dollars to fix his GIANT ZFS ARRAY WOWEE WOW WOW because he decided to use the 'hda','hdb',etc naming convention which any guide will tell you to NEVER loving DO (use the UUID).
lol he paid a few grand for someone to run "zpool import -f"? (That'll make it scan all drives for ZFS pool signatures and fix it.)

I think the video fits this thread the best. I mean Bitwit's Chinese guy shtick gets old quick, but it highlights the best parts of the riffed original video.

And it still misses the PSU being put in upside down and the short snippet of the guy trying to remove thermal paste from the underside of the CPU.

Yeah, I have no idea. I wish there was a proper summary of what happened, because it must have been clown college. Over on Ars, in the relevant thread, people are talking about it, seemingly knowing details, but not really linking them (apart from a few unreadable stray pages). But apparently in typical DrPizza fashion, he was being a know-it-all fuckwad again, and did a testimony in self-defense, against the better judgment of his lawyer, and it must have been so annoying that court spectators left in the middle of it.

I have no way of knowing the work environment at LMG, but loving lol if you unironically think that people at a job aren’t unhappy, under appreciated, or overworked unless they are quitting.
Yeah, pretty much that. I'm annoyed as gently caress by my job (actually it's the poo poo pay for what I do), but given my qualifications (mostly just a lack those lovely papers spelling D-I-P-L-O-M-A) my options are limited. So I just stick with it, because it mostly can just get worse. I know plenty of others with the same situation.

I'm sorry you're in a lovely situation. The way the US work culture and education system is setup does have some problems, it does hold people back. That said, I know my job really sucks right now, but I know I am here in part because of my own fault, and in part because of factors I feel have been beyond my control. You're right, but that is a debate that is not the same as whether or not Linus is a good or bad boss.
It sounds worse than it is. It's relatively seen a nice job, because the activities are diverse. I'm just paid like poo poo, in my opinion anyway. I moved from operating a cable insulation extrusion production line, where most of my day consisted out of 6-7 hours of Netflix and internet browsing, to production planning with a side-dish of statistician and data analyst/programmer. And for some reason I still earn the same (actually less, since I got shift bonuses as blue collar). I certainly don't want back to the factory floor, but I also don't know what else I want to do. IT is interesting, but they want all sort of paper work to consider you worthy. Yet when I look at our IT department (where I applied once, also note that I'm coding regardless), dumping SQL results into an SWT table in Java seems to be considered high art, yet trying to get them to decode a simple Excel formula makes their heads spin like a propeller (happened more than once when me and my senior coworker were both on vacation, and people called them for support). So I'm not sure what extended education I _do_ actually need. Bitter? No sir, not at all.

Also to get back on topic. Yea I guess it would be nice to work at a shop like LTT, but if they're indeed actually underpaid, fun isn't a currency that pays the bills. On the other hand, at least the editing team, considering what a shitshow the movie/TV industry is, specifically the VFX branch, it's probably saner to live on dry bread anyhow.

Paper promotions with no raise or benefits is the worst poo poo, if you haven't made your request for a raise to your boss clear then do so and if you have then send out the resume.
Oh I did make it clear, but here we are. As far as sending out the resume, I have to sit on this position for a while, to "pad" the CV. There's a reason I went for that blue collar job to begin with. Judging the salary discussion on r/belgium recently, it also seems more like workers in the metal sector are overpaid. According to there, IT people don't really make that much more, unless they're working in Brussels at a Top 500.

That said, my salary is going to rise with seniority every year, and there's a bunch at least three raises left, which my boss is gonna try to push through (one each year). It's a 2D salary table.

She actually knows what she's talking about. The produced videos aren't really an indicator of that, since it's essentially acting with a script. But you'll notice when she's doing more candid stuff when recorded while visiting conventions... when that was still possible.

Scuttlebutt is that her boyfriend pressured her into getting those big tits. Does help attracting more viewers, tho.

Seems extremely unlikely given that she's lesbian.
I'm going by information I picked up a long while ago, when she was more controversial. Google now says this, so I guess yea:

quote:

“To this day, people still repeat the rumour, even though I’ve hundreds of hours of video disproving it,” Wu says. “My authenticity is well established enough at this point that prying into my personal life is just shorthand for attempting to deprive me of agency, so I don’t take kindly to it.”

Dougherty’s accusations stemmed from Reddit conspiracy theories, claiming Wu was married to a white male, and he was the one behind her work.

“I had what we call a ‘contract marriage’ or a fake husband,” Wu says. “This is common in China for the LGBT community. It makes life go smoothly.”

Should I keep watching it? The first claim about heatsinks being pointless made me pause immediately, considering the VRM drama back with with the Core i9, because the mainboards lacked heatsinks and the manufacturers scrambled getting some on there right before release.
