Mac based environment and my office is in Stockholm and I’m she-Mac Janitor (for no extra loving pay because I’m an idiot). We used to have a solid IT admin but he asked for a COL raise and was denied, so he rightfully left. the person who took it over had very little experience even as a regular degular Mac OS user and it wasn’t his job to IT admin initially and left abruptly. I managed to fix the printer and explain “no you can’t use an .exe and don’t download poo poo you don’t know” to people so I got saddled with Mac wrangler. the actual IT head is based in Sydney and doesn’t understand that my actual position is within design and I can’t spend half a day fixing networking and firewall issues and WE NEED AN ACTUAL PERSON HERE TO DO SO, NOT VIA WHATSAPP. NOT AT 4 AM BECAUSE YOU REFUSE TO UNDERSTAND TIME ZONES.

it’s all good because the people who need those files won’t look at them and instead email me “plz send file” despite me telling them “you can download all of these at your loving leisure” over and over again.


the day I learned that I swear I aged a decade in mere minutes. there are so many dumb things within the Office environment that cruises me into an early grave. YES let’s have an email search that conflicts with Spotlight indexing and not fix it for [squints] years. YESSS I love excel choking and going to the loving error hell program that INEVITABLY CHOKES AS WELL.


gently caress YOU

to be fair, this is not entirely MS’s fault as my org is draaaaggging their heels on upgrading hardware and must! download! every! update! immediately!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%CA%BCPhags-pa_script


came across it when looking up tibetan buddhism



this was my takeaway about tibetan buddhism


so basically buddhism is like, here's ya consciousness, lets look into it and see what it does and what it shows, and lots of techniques evolved around it
but some people decided that just doing meditation wasnt enough so lets discover all sorts of esoteric rituals to enhance what consciousness might do. tantric tricks. eat jizz. look at weird hosed up mandals. that kind of thing

also the pointing out instruction which i still cant grasp gently caress it all

my great-uncle is one of the world’s leading experts on Tibetan Buddhism

In junior high this was the site that boys my age would look at because it was edgy/gross/whatever, so I just registered the idea of sites with names like "rotten dot com" being poo poo that people would link you to gross you out.

Around grade 9 (~2003) I was on just a random small message board and made a post about how bored I was and how I wanted people to link cool stuff. The admin of the site just pasted a link to "http://www.somethingawful.com"
I didn't even click it, just replied to him about how I'm not gonna be fooled into looking at hosed up weird poo poo

to be clear, it ran about as well as you would expect of IE5 being run through some kind of reverse-WINE setup, which is to say barely at all

iirc it was also packaged in an manner that reflected MSFT’s lack of understanding of UNIX and took some major janitoring to make it work

playing a japanese version of fantasy star online on the Dreamcast, which involved using my Amiga as router to change the IP packets TTL on the fly because the Dreamcast sent them with a TTL that was too low to make it to the japanese servers from france

I did this by patching the amiga tcp stack (Miami) directly in memory with an assembly program

a friend had an even worse setup where he directly linked the Dreamcast modem to a us robotics PC modem with a RJ12 cable and made the PC modem listen to incoming connection (i had the Dreamcast ethernet thing myself). The PC was running Linux and we did the TTL patching thing by directly hacking the kernel source, checking for a hard coded address to see if the packet was coming from his dreamcast

this is wild
