But windows 7 can.
Stop abusing boxes MacTrekkie
Oh fuck, I'm just about to kill my dad.
So my dad wanted to use my file server I have setup (Basically a NAS, Except Decently big. It's in a rack mount case, runs arch linux with no GUI and has about 6TB of hard drive space (3 2TB's, Soon to be 4), It's pretty much hidden away in a cabinet in my room with a shitty CRT, I Generally use SSH and FTP to access it so of course my dad has to goto it directly instead of using the SSH and FTP Details I gave to him and I had to leave, So I come home today to find that my SSH Details have been reset and multiple new files in the root directory, Things to do with the OS. So I goto the station itself and find that a FUCKING GUI has been installed and multiple other things! And I find the wallpaper to be "You're Welcome Zac!" (Zac Being my name) So I confront him and he says "A server can't be run without a GUI, It can't be done!" I argue and he goes "I went to TAFE for 2 years to learn about computers, STOP THINKING LIKE YOU KNOW THINGS!", So now I've been spending 2 FUCKING HOURS Deleting unnecessary shit like fucking APACHE, x.org, MySQL, And NGINX, I mean what the fuck is he trying to do? I also find openVZ half installed on the fucking machine, I'm better Off to fucking format the system drive, What I made was a barebone install! He's turned it into a fucking desktop machine with server systems on it, I'm about to fucking kill him, He's never EVER touching ANYTHING of mine ever again.
Oh fucking hell, Now I found he's tried to install shit onto of the storage drives (forgot to mention I have one 80GB Drive for the OS), He's tried to fucking install wget over Pacman ON a storage drive.
Take the CRT away as well; he doesn't sound smart enough to use SSH.
Also, try using a BSD instead of Linux, just for the added obscurity. That way, even if he does break through the passwords, he's baffled when "pacman", "apt-get" and the like return "not found". Make sure you don't install the man pages, so he'll never figure out the command is "pkg_add".
My friend and I had some discussion about our old Junior High's computer lab. Somewhere around the middle of it one of us brought up Call of Duty Black Ops and he said he pirated it, went to visit a teacher broke into the computer lab and played it in there. I'm just looking at a wall thinking, "HHHHHHHHHNNNNNNNNGGGGGG."
And I'm re-installing arch. He's fucked up everything, So I'm currently wiping my OS Drive.
"Investigator: So, what's the cause of death?
Coroner: Blunt force trauma to the head, massive exsanguination from multiple puncture wounds, probably glass, electrocution, and a bit of heavy metal poisoning.
Investigator: Heavy metal poisoning?
Coroner: Yeah, CRTs are full of shit like that. Metals didn't get a chance to do much - guy died before he knew what hit him.
Investigator: I guess he...
Investigator: should have seen it coming."
OK, the pun at the end there sucked, but you get the drift.
And what did we learn here folks?
Never share your root password with anyone.
It wasn't root, He used sudo su like a fuckhead.
a) they can't "sudo su", "sudo bash" or "sudo sh" to get full root access
b) they have to know my password to use sudo, so if I leave the session open, they can't abuse it too much
c) even if they get through all that, and do some damage, I'll know exactly what they did, so I can undo it easily.
No, I'm not paranoid. WHY ARE YOU ASKING?
I gave an ethernet switch to my friend as a birthday gift, because he said he needed one. When I gave it to him he said "Thanks! Now I just need more powercables!" I responded "Well, a powercable for the switch is included.." he then says "No, no, no.. They're not, see, there's only one cable, and there's five ports!".
By powercables he meant ethernet cables. He's a guy that think he knows alot and he can learn the rest in 1 day. He tried to win a contest about making a Starcraft II map, and me and my friend were a little sceptic, but he just said "When I win, you will look stupid", when the contest is over and I ask about how his map turned out he just said "that he had coded a plus worng and therefore when he tried to run the map he got a message saying "ERRORERRORERRORERRORERRORERROR". He also bragged about how he had designed a jet on a piece of paper and that he was just about to put it in the game. He's supposedsly (did I spell that shit right?) also working with a dude from Scotland on a game based on the Unreal Engine and he's also about to learn C/C++. A game only fills up 10MB of your HDD too, if you believe what he says.
Sudo is now going into my daily use vocabulary.
Anyone have the link for the "Computer Illiteracy" comics. Those were funny.
So I just finished a test for a class and
what the fuck, macs have preview for PDF and Windows has Adobe Reader
which you gotta install but w/e. it would be rtf as it's a standard file format
Most text editors can read rtf.
PDF readers are widely available on most major operating systems.
docx can be read with Microsoft Office in Windows and OS X and OpenOffice has support for docx reading too (Windows, OS X, Linux).
Windows Media Audio can be played by most media players (VLC, supports Windows, OS X, Linux)
So the whole question is stupid.
Not sure if this is content or not, but here we go.
Right now, in my current class, our teacher was talking about how we're going to get flash drives for our laptops soon. She finishes talking about it and then she says, "Any questions?" Then one kid blurted out, "What's the size on the flash drives? Are they 1 terabyte?"
Then, in the same class, one of the kids couldn't open inspiration without getting an error. She says shut down the computer, and boot it back up. Then she said this when it didn't work again, "It must be a command error that's not letting the software work."
Although, to be fair, I use my 500GB FreeAgent Go as a flash drive most of the time.
You fool! Do you realize what you've done!
Seriously. And I took that test this year. Fucking retarded.
My Visual Basic exam was on a piece of paper.
I had to WRITE a setup for a working calculator.
My brother thinks Alienware makes quality computers....at a fair price.
