    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

    I did that when I built my 2nd PC.

    RMA'd the board and they where like "nah mate, u broke dis"

    hard lessons for a 15 year old.

    That was 3 months wages wasted.

    Same here. Was one of the machines I had to built for a client. Fortunately enough, we could RMA it, but I was for 1-2 days until the supplier OK'd the RMA. Sometimes the best way to learn a lesson is to fuck up and suffer from it.

    I bent CPU pins as a kid once, AMD Dual core masterrace, good times. I tried to take off the heat sink, was very hard to pull out so I twisted it a little. CPU came off with it and 1/4th of the pins ended up at a 45 degree angle off target. I used a very small screwdriver to straighten them, was still noticeable but I could install the CPU back. Never told my dad, it was his PC. The machine was never as stable afterwards, had some random blue screens every several weeks, not sure what the cause was

    Never bent CPU pins before.. (Also, haven't really played with computers since the pins were on the mobo). I HAVE managed to pull a card from a running machine before and force some RAM in backwards (pre-DDR).

    Bent lotsa pins, Pentium 4, Athlon64 as well. Always managed to straighten them up with a razor, never had any issues. If it helps bring you peace, the system being unstable in the above example wasn't because of bent pins but likely due to other stuff. With pins it's either it works or not, p black and white iirc (yep, I also did break a few off in some cases).

    Eh I wouldn't be so sure cosmin. I managed to chip a fucking core and the thing still booted and worked but ofc very unstable.

    I've been building my own PCs for 15 years (I AM OLD!!!!) and just last year I managed to not rip the PCIe slot off while removing the graphics card. Because the securing thingy broke before the PCIe slot came off. Good engineering, I say.
