A true programmer: Hacker Scripts Based on a true story: build engineer has left for another company. The dude was literally living inside the terminal. You know, Xxx: OK, so, our that type of a guy who loves Vim, creates diagrams in Dot and writes wiki-posts in Markdown... If something anything - requires more than 90 seconds of his time, he writes a script to automate that. xxx: So we're sitting here, looking through his, uhm, "legacy" xxx: You're gonna love this xxx: smack-my-bitch-up.sh - sends a text message "late at work" to his wife (apparently). Automatically picks reasons from an array of strings, randomly. Runs inside a cron-job. The job fires if there are active SSH-sessions on the server after 9pm with his login. xxx: kumar-asshole.sh scans the inbox for emails from "Kumar" (a DBA at our clients). Looks for keywords like "help" "trouble", "sorry" etc. If keywords are found - the script SSHes into the clients server and rolls back the staging database to the latest backup. Then sends a reply "no worries mate, be careful next time". xxx: hangover.sh another cron-job that is set to specific dates. Sends automated emails like "not feeling well/gonna work from home" etc. Adds a random "reason" from another predefined array of strings. Fires if there are no interactive sessions on the server at 8:45am. xxx: (and the oscar goes to) fucking-coffee.sh - this one waits exactly 17 seconds (!), then opens a telnet session to our coffee-machine (we had no frikin idea the coffee machine is on the network, runs linux and has a TCP socket up and running) and sends something like sys brew. Turns out this thing starts brewing a mid-sized half-caf latte and waits another 24 () seconds before pouring it into a cup. The timing is exactly how long it takes to walk to the machine from the dudes desk. xxx: holy sh*t I'm keeping those XX: A true programmer

transgenderteensurvivalguide: nonbinary-dysphoria: ascaloner: micdotcom: Male and female brains aren’t wired differently New research, published in October in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, concluded that despite size discrepancy, there’s no functional difference between men’s and women’s brains. “Male” brains and “female” brains simply don’t exist. In fact, there’s significant overlap. This study had 1400 people in it… Remember that sample size matters. remember this when someone tries to rebuke this with a study that has 80 participants.

Several doctors are dumbfounded after finding a patient’s suspected malignant brain tumor disappeared without surgical treatment, giving the patient a renewed sense of hope. CBS Sacramento reported Friday that the neurosurgeons and specialists in charge of treating Paul Wood, a patient from Lodi, California, are scratching their heads after brain scans revealed his tumor disappeared the day before he was scheduled for surgery. Wood, a father and volunteer in his community, noticed something was amiss several months ago when he could barely stand up straight. “I had massive headaches, I couldn’t walk down the hallway without holding on to the walls,” he said. The Lodi man went to his primary care doctor, who referred him to a neurosurgeon at UC San Francisco. The neurosurgeon said his brain was bleeding, but radiologists said there was evidence of a tumor. Wood, who considers himself a man of faith, turned to his community for support. But what he did not expect was the overwhelming amount of prayer and support for him on social media. “My phone is blowing up, my Facebook is prayer after prayer, all over California,” said Wood. When doctors took another brain scan the day before his operation, they canceled the surgery because the tumor had disappeared. Wood said it was nothing short of a “miracle” from God. “It’s a miracle and that is the way God planned it,” he said. Wood’s doctor struggled to explain why the tumor disappeared, admitting that there are some things “that we can’t explain.” “We do tests and we have medical technology and we try to come up with some conclusion… sometimes things happen that we can’t explain,” said Dr. Richard.: MEDICAL MIRACLE: MAN'S BRAIN TUMOR VANISHES WITHOUT SURGERY Several doctors are dumbfounded after finding a patient’s suspected malignant brain tumor disappeared without surgical treatment, giving the patient a renewed sense of hope.

Then we head to the beach to confront our truth about your mysterious past. Odyssey looks set to Origins, with a skew towards more some bold new directions. The people off cliffs, but with additions sandals of an outcast mercenary how characters behave around you, This could feel very similar to take the series insea warfare and 300-kicking larger fights will feature up to 300 characters in a battle, just like a famous movie. Amid the chaos we spot our target and enter some Origins-like combat, with dodges, parries, and strikes offering a tactical skirmish. We also see the Spartan-kick in action as Kassandra smashes her foe in the gut, sending him falling backwards. There's a neat parry move too, where she can disarm her enemy, flipping his shield skywards. setup sees you slip into the like dialogue choices that affect playing as either Alexios or Ubisoft is slowly adding more Kassandra - on a journey from complexity to its RPG-lite ideas. coun ar tactical scoundrel to Spartan warrior Ahead of you lays a whole lot of SOCRATIC QUESTIONING human history- Periods n collectibles, the entirety of Greece In the E3 demo we see much of what's new play out, first with Kassandra engaging in wordpla building a guild to set the world to with Socrates, our choices in the explore, and maybe an olive branch or two as you set about While on the surface it shares a lot with Origins, scratch deeper and this adventure has many features we've not seen before in Assassin's Creed - it could well be this generation's Black Flag. THIS ADVENTURE HAS MANY FEATURES WE'VE NOT SEEN BEFORE IN ASSASSIN'S CREED ion BEST SANDBOX E3 SHOWFLOOR VERDICT Assassin's Creed go next? Turns out Ubisoft is taking us to Ancient Alexios or Kassandra (your choice of gender doesn't affect the story), you get caught up in And if Origins' map was big, Odyssey's is bigger still, covering chunks of the mainland.

A tale from tech support: arionwind: autismserenity: arionwind: autismserenity: ARE computers flammable? 1 feel like they're probably not? This depends entirely on how much uncooked rice you have shoved in the floppy drive Ok 1 feel like there's a story behind this There is, yes! After I quit school, I worked briefly as a computer repair tech. Going to people's houses or businesses, fixing their various bugs, etc. While I would rapidly decide that field was not for me because of the one businessman who needed mult know, you push that button and that plastic holder thing with the hole comes out 1 think it is technically call the "Cup Depository Tray CD, right?), he is not the most memorable encounter. No, that goes to one of the nicest ladies I ever encountered on this job iple cup holde eplacements (you She called us out because her computer had stopped turning on, and wouldn't even make a noise when she tried to push the button. One day it had just shut off while she was using it and stubbornly refused to come back on, and could we please see what we could do to fix it? So I go out there expecting some wire had gotten loose and there was no power getting to the machine or something. It happens sometimes if a machine gets banged around enough, or if someone fiddles with it wrong or is careless putting it together, computers are finicky like that But as soon as I get to the box itself, 1 know it isn't that simple, because of the smell. I have smelled computers with dust all up in them, that isn't uncommon, but this is just vile and, more importantly, entirely new. I am now more curious than afraid, so 1 open it up and there is a mass of goopy off-white mush spilling all over everything, parts of it are burnt to circuits, there is almost nothing untouched by the mass. But by far the worst off is the A drive. That is the obvious source of the problem, and the thing has not "exploded", but more burst from the pressure of whatever this stuff was So 1 ask the woman if she had used the floppy drive recently and noticed any problems, and she says no, not until the whole machine stopped working. But I come to find out what she used it for Turns out this woman was a devout Shinto practitioner and believed that her computer (among other things) had a soul that needed to be respected an honored. Which, fair enough. But she chose to honor it by feeding it a grain of rice every time she had to wake it up and disturb For years this kindhearted woman had been putting a grain of rice into the A driv from sleep mode. And eventually that was enough pressure to break the drive and start spilling out onto the internal bits, where the heat melted it all and caused no end of problems ime she turned it on or woke t iing u After that it was a simple enough thing to explain that there are better ways to honor and take care of your computer's needs, what with virus scans or defrags and the like, but t poor device was entirely lost. I guess the moral of the story here is that you can try your best to be good and still wind up hurting people? Maybe? Or else it's that even the most horrible out of context problem isn't nearly as frustrating as one middle aged jerk who won't freaking listen when you tell him that CD trays are not for your dang coffee cups!
