    I haven't noticed any app-stability issues on El Capitan (I tend to stay a year behind latest OS releases), but major issues with sleep / waking from sleep. They're rare, but this is something that has always worked before ever since I switched to macs. It's just infuriating because I need to power cycle the machine.

    Only had issues with hard crashes dealing with HDMI on a USB-C hub, switched the HDMI to a dedicated apple dongle and it's been rock solid after that.

    I went through a period of safari locking up at random and the wifi just shitting is self, but that seems to have been patched out (plus I don't use the mac much anymore)

    I just installed Mac on my gaming pc. Never bought the components in mind to specifically do a hackintosh build with it, but as it turns out, I just installed it and everything works brilliantly (Sierra 10.12.4)

    I got pretty inspired, which led me to hackintosh all the things (including two laptops) all of them ended in abysmal failures.

    But my desktop hackintosh runs p. stronk

    edit: will probably reinstall windows on it, since you know. It's my gaming pc. But will do a dual boot configuration. Running graphics apps (like ps,lightroom and final cut pro) on the Mac is nice and I can do the fun stuff in winblows

    workflow is hobbyist tier and the options for grading are not as granular as most people would like. Lightworks is the most autistic of the bunch but it certainly gets the job done. You can get davinci resolve for free and it is awesome, alternatively you could use premiere which is what I used when I had an adobe CC subscription.

    FCP certainly works for some people but I haven't seen anyone use it, even for instagram tier shallow blurbs, for years.

    I didn't think Lightworks was that bad to get into. Will see if I bother to stick with FCP, probably not. Lightworks runs on Mac too so

    I will admit, I'm too dumb to use davinci resolve.. All i wanted was hobby level stuff, and I just couldn't work this out..

    In IT news.. Today I'm building new vcenters. 2012r2 because it's the highest we are licensed for.. Vcenter 6.0.0u2 because it's the last version that will work with esxi5.1 which is the latest version (and only) we have..

    It will be nice to finally be able to use esx6 hosts.

    Ok there has to be more to it than that.. You dont just delete an RODC because its stopped working..
    ikr. Flattened the whole thing and we're still trying to find out why he did it. Let alone why he did it on a Monday evening
    He surely made an image of the machine before dumping it ...
    So apparently the partition on the hyperV server that contained the vhds "went bad due to a faulty nic corrupting data" and the vhd couldn't be retrieved which somewhat explains the fresh start. I'm struggling to believe the whole partition just blew up in the techs face but that's the excuse they're giving

    How does a faulty NIC affect a disk partition?

    I feel like that somali dude in the meme right now.

    ikr and shit like this keeps happening. I just dont want to get caught in the crossfire when all of the fuck ups my colleagues keep making start to snowball and we lose clients over it. I'm not in Canada long enough to leave this job and look for something else so I've decided to stick this one out, even if at times it feels like a sinking ship
