    cheers mate, its never too late..

    Im 41 now, last year i said fuck you all (my semi-legal second jobs and legal but incredibly shit insurance job) , and i enrolled to private college here in Croatia, 3 year software developer program (bacc. degree). Finished first year with 4/5 mark, cleared everything before second year started.

    It was incredibly hard for me because of mathematics I and math II - last time i did math was 23 years ago, and i hated it than as well. Literally hundreds of hours of repeating highschool math, and than implementing it into this one - i pissed blood. I got so drunk when i cleared those 2, fuck, me and jagermeister celebrated that one.

    On the other hand Programming i found easy and Data structures and Algorithms was hard as bitch, but doable (unlike math).

    I did the right thing, because as far as i can see, i like programming a lot, and its gona get easier as i clear these non-programing stuff ( goodbye Math - welcome Probabilities and Statistics )

    Good luck man, it takes an especially large size of steel balls to do this when you are 41 and have a well paying (assumption) job. If the program is nice you will learn many little things and nuances that will help you later on immensely. Good luck and fuck jägermeister, I still remember the consequences when I downed a bottle after taking my last exam in my exchange year.

    I'm still not sure if this is true or not. Oracle have denied it, but honestly the numbers of people who moved to Linux after oracle bought sun it's inevitable that it will be shut down one day.

    Wanted a job with more responsibility and more pay yet I find myself grumpy now that I was connected to a clients server from home from 9-10pm continuing to unfuck them after a cryptolocker. Can't have it all I guess

    EDIT:

    Oh and on my second week they said I could look through the recycling pile for anything I liked the look of. Managed to get my hands on a HP 6300 desktop with an i5 3470 and 12 gigs of ram. Gonna slap a 1050ti in it and save around 800 bucks on the new PC I was planning on building in the new year

    So one field tech recommended just restoring a back up of the sites hyper v vhd file after a cryptolocker while the other said to run a ps script to delete all the encrypted files and then robocopy everything from the back up and I have to say that robocopy is actually doing an alright job

    Robocopy is pretty good for any file copying, especially with all the various switches it has.

    Punctuation is also pretty neat when conveying messages to other shit posters.

    Hahaha. I once changed the default route on a router I was connected to via SSH.. That was 10 mins of my life I'll never get back before the delayed reboot fixed it all.

    So I'm pretty sure my colleague, the only other guy that works on the help desk mind you, got drunk in work this morning. Not only that but he took on helping a photocopier company swap out three machines across two sites while I was out viewing an apartment and now there are emails going to the directors which how much this copier transfer was a fuck up

    A different colleague just tanked a new server by trying to install the cpu with the plastic guide tool attached and managed to mash a load of the socket pins down
