Statements like "if it's not empty, add a line break, otherwise make it empty" hurt my brain because I simply cant fathom why for the love of god why anyone would add so many extra lines that do nothing.

This is going to take a while.
Wiring up the power to a juniper server today. All looks well, flip the circuit breaker, sparks fly circuit breaker trips. Work out the negative was touching the earth and had blown a hole straight through the insulation. All the power went straight to earth so the power supply shouldn't be damaged but stil have to send it off and get a new replacement. That should delay this very urgent job that they wanted running yesterday. By a day or 5

We have a bunch of workstations not on any domain but need a local group policy put in place. So I've created the Group Policy as intended on a VM, zipped the contents of system32\GroupPolicy, and put it in a script that overwrites the system32\GroupPolicy directory on each intended system.
Preliminary tests seem to indicate it works as intended... but I got that feeling in the back of my mind that this is going to blow up something fierce. The administrative templates are likely to bite me in the arse if they don't exactly match.
This week has been just great so far... Monday, just after lunch, a consultant we worked with while setting up our new printing system called my boss and asked for temporary access to the printservers so he could get some reports...
The fucker somehow managed to crash our print cluster... Not just one of the servers, but all of them, stopping all printing for thousands of users...
How the fuck he managed this epic feat I have no idea, cause once he noticed something was wrong, he tried to "fix" it by reinstalling all the services and software on it, and in the process deleted all the print queues...
Luckily we have daily backups, but it still took a few hours to get it all running again... Forced overtime because of others mistakes is fun...
Tuesday, the consultant remembered he forgot the reports... He connects to the servers and proceeds TO FUCK IT ALL UP AGAIN...
Riddle me this:
our ProCurve switches can only have 1 mirror port, but i need to hook both a NAC and a IDS into one switch.
And no-one has seen a hub for 15 years.
No. A Rhinoceros is not a fat Unicorn.
virtual hub on your hypervisor or on a linux box?
while you're at it do tell how i can enable port mirror on my procurve..
I put in a request for a second monitor a while back. This attracted the attention of one of my colleagues, who subsequently put in his own request. All the bits and pieces turned up yesterday (monitor, 2x dp to vga adapter, vga cable, monitor power cable, graphics card). My colleague set up as much of it as he could on his own and put all the remaining pieces away again.
Someone from IT turned up this morning to install the graphics card, and it was at this point that my colleague realised that he'd put it back in the box the previous day, then put the box out for recycling. By then, it had already been collected. The rest of us are taking bets on whether the company claws it back out of his salary, as he'd already signed for the delivery...
Website went down today. I inquired wtf, boss forwarded me an amusing email from Site5.
lol site5We wanted to apologize for the prolonged outage that occurred today on your VPS's host node.
After being notified by our monitoring systems that a hard drive had failed in the RAID array, we contacted the datacenter to replace the drive accordingly. After doing so, the hard drive went read only and the datacenter reported three drives had simultaneously failed. When three hard drives fail within the same span, it is impossible to salvage data. As a result, the failed drives were replaced and the operating system reloaded. We are currently in the process of recreating all VPS servers on the node.
If you purchased remote backups, we are currently restoring your data from our last successful backup run (December 13th). If you did not purchase backups, your VPS has been recreated and a welcome email has been resent. You will need to upload data from your own local backups. We highly recommend purchasing remote backups, and if you are interested in adding them to your account, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org at your convenience for further assistance. Adding remote backups at this point would not bring your data back that was lost in the hard drive failure, but it would safeguard your data in the future if it were ever needed.
Keep watching our forum post for further updates and information: http://forums.site5.com/showthread.php?t=34156
Three hard drives failing at the same time is extremely rare! It is something we have never seen before, and we certainly apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know!
The Site5 Team
I don't think we purchased remote backups from them either. Thankfully, not my problem v0v
EDIT: From the forums:
Heh.Unfortunately the disk array became corrupt due to a failure on multiple drives on the server.
There were 3 Hard Disk Drives on the server that had very similar serial numbers, which makes us believe this was actually due to a bad batch during the manufacturing process:
So very glad this is not my problem.
Gonna go to a computer fare and buy a hub, it's the only way - or wire up a port-duplicator
It's in the horrible java webUI. Configuration -> Mirror ports. Select the "output" port, then in that window below select all ports except for yoru miror port. Bam. All traffic is replicated through this port.while you're at it do tell how i can enable port mirror on my procurve..
