Did I mention that I got my wallet stolen right after that 7-15 shift?

I lost my bank cards, my national ID card (you 'muricans have no idea what it means, but I can open businesses with that, can go abroad, do pretty much anything), my licenses (specially my diving license, I am not certain there exists a duplicate or a record of it...), my membership cards (some of which had funds on them), some items of sentimental value and of course, all the cash...

Pshhhh. You guys got nothing on my old job. FRIDAY: 1600-0000
SATURDAY: 0900-0000
SUNDAY: 0900-0030
MONDAY: 0900-1800

and then I went to 15 credits of classes between Monday night and Friday morning. Sometimes I'd pick up another. 4-7 hours on a Wednesday if my class canceled.

Never again.

Worst retail schedule I had was shift end at 23:00 and they had me come at 04:00. Pretty sure it was just a schedule [bleep] up because they never did that again.

 

 

Today I got a blue screen of death (unmountable boot volume) and was unable to boot at all so I bought a new sata cable ($10) and a new hard drive ($50) and spent hours trying to figure out a legitimate way to get windows 7 (as it turns out even with a product key torrenting is your only option) and it turns out that the cause was socket that you input the sata cable on the motherboard was dead and that by simply plugging into another socket it works fine again.

 

Its not the end of the world I guess since I was planning a new build in the next few months, let this be a lesson for anyone reading, always check the little things first.

My best day of work was not last Christmas Eve, but the one before, where I did 5AM till 9:30PM. Now I just normally work a lot, but spread it out over the entire week.

I physically beat somebody up last night and I really should have ignored her.

Oh yeah it's definitely illegal. I think you need a minimum of 9 or 10 hours between shifts

Torrenting Windows? I don't think so in the US. Uploading/seeding it to a swarm is distribution of copyrighted material.
I haven't seen anyone get sued over it for Windows, but I'm out $1500 (attorney's fees and settlement, because it was cheaper than continuing to pay the attorney) after (I'm guessing) one of my sister's kids downloaded some Adam Sandler movie on my connection. I hadn't heard of it until Comcast sent the subpoena notice, and it apparently did very poorly in theaters. Maybe they could have had the case continued, but they never provided anything to support that the IP address had been used to share copyrighted material, only that some device at the address was a member of the swarm. (TL;DR: copyright trolls suck)

DigitalRiver used to host Windows 7 installer images via http, which wouldn't involve redistribution on the downloader's part.

Haven't seen this thing since I got it 3 months ago. It was nice enough to stick around long enough for a picture, too!

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Bought Steelseries Rival 300 mouse.

Seems good at first glance.

 

My old Roccat served me well for over 5 years, but the wheel stopped working and in the end tracking also got jumpy.
