    Yeah I did that. It all appears to be set correctly. I also changed the time zone in the system preferences and then changed them back to the correct zone which forced outlook to resync but the time stamps are still exactly 1 hour off.

    It might be time to try resetting the pram.

    any time something is off by an hour my first suspicion is daylight savings time settings. dunno too much about tech but this thread is still amusing.

    Now I understand not everyone has a grasp of tech and the sort. SO, when I was asked today how to send a picture back to themselves I went down the list of flash drive, etc and said well email it to yourself.

    What I don't understand is their desire to then take this small picture the size of a wallet photo to Wallgreens to then have it printed out. Just get a piece of photopaper. We have so many various printers in the office from dot matrix "tractor feeds" to laser to good ink jets up to the Epson Sylus Pro 4900s. I mean something in the office is able to print what you want. WHO goes to Wallgreens?!!

    Not using office equipment for personal use..... and you are ranting about it.....

    I remember having to install a tracking system for all our printers for a school (About 400 printers). Paper and Ink cost went down by almost 70k that year...

    idk if any of you are in the right field to understand this, but here goes:

    took a test today. feeling pretty good about one question on cache miss rate. ask my friend after class if she got the same answer. long story short, it turns out I did the question as if it were a direct-mapped cach, but the question was asking about a four-way associative cache.

    I was like... "god. DAMNIT." I even remember reading that it was four-way associative; it just never clicked. fucking hell that was a fail on my part. good thing everyone is failing the class and it's curved.

    my fault really... I should have known not every single answer would be 100% miss rate. that's too easy lol

    Those are the mistakes that I always hated myself for and never got over. (What class? Comp. Architecture?)

    It's never the easy way out, and if it was you'd still get credit.

    yeah I think I'll get a few points for effort and for having the right logic even if I answered the wrong question... I hope.

    The funniest fail I have seen at work is someone asked for help with setting up their Dell docking station. It is the Dell D3000 displaylink if anyone is familiar. He admitted on the phone that it was probably user error before I said anything. I head up to his desk and he has the USB 3.0 from the dock plugged back into the dock instead of the laptop. Once I moved that plug, he started laughing.

    I don't mind helping with simple things as long as the person can admit it and have a good sense of humor about it.

    I recently changed over to mATX build so I had to do a fresh install of W7. After getting everything set up I go into disc management to make sure everything is how I like it. I notice on my 3tb HDD for some reason there was a 100mb partition that I swear wasn't there before. Same on my 512gb SSD. I go to attempt to merge them and I started with the SSD. I somehow wiped the entire drive which had the majority of my gaming data on it. The biggest bummer is I thought GTA V had cloud saving for single player. Nope! Roughly 20 hours or so down the drain.

    You could probably run something like recuva or some other free file forensics to find those files. Simply formatting the drive, like deleting a file, doesn't erase everything. Keep this in mind.

    These days I don't mind helping no matter the issue. You'll never know, at work or not, the person you help may someday be useful to you. A tiny bit trickier if it's at work as it's kinda my job, but yeh turn the tables around and for any other issue in life that I need help with, I bet someone will think it's simple (i.e. broken facilities at home none IT).

    I can confirm Recuva does work (back in 2006 at least, today I find it hard to find a working app that's free... not looked at Recuva today though). I never used it personally but a friend had some problem/corruption with an external disk and I gave him the app, and he was able to rescue everything.

    Here I am figuring I should take advantage of the moment I had and wipe my phone to go from Hyperdrive ROM version 20 to 21. So I reset and go to flash, and boom file is corrupted. So Here I am at work with no phone the last 40 minutes as this download finishes so I can go try and reflash. Just have to pretend I know anyone calling because it is all just numbers instead of contacts. Guess I should have imported my contacts in the meantime for 30 seconds.

    I've been building a new VDI environment from the ground up, because the guy i replaced experimented so much with production, it was easier to start new. As anyone who has done anything like this knows, there are little bugs and shit here and there that need to be fixed as you progress to final testing. We have deployed it to about 30 users for testing. Out of those 30 people, 1 has been calling every day about a problem with this or that, 99% of which is just user configuration (How they like it to work). I've been documenting everything i do for the future and my boss walks in and starting reading it.

    "You have been fixing all of this shit? These complaints are retarded, stop wasting your time with this nut. If you keep fixing things like this, they will expect too much. Only fix things that affect their performance."

    This is the first IT job i've ever had where i can tell a user "No"......

    Haha, this is precisely why one of our in-house created software comes with errors known by the common users but to the new users they are actually "features".

    I'm still working on the recovery. the C: drive recovered some things, but I do not see anything that pops out at me that it's my save files. I'm doing a deep search recovery on the larger SSD now.

    Not fail on my part, but fail on NCIX.US. Yesterday they listed a I7-4790k for $229+shipping. Using a coupon I was able to snag it for $226 with shipping. I just got an email stating, "Sorry we f'd up no I7 for you!". Second time this week an online retailer hasn't honored what they advertised.

    Our main programmer has a board called "Features" which is his bug board. That started when he rebuilt one of our web apps, and one of the "Bugs" would leave the last known input in the search area. All new people LOVED that it.

    Welp, I don't think I'm recovering my GTA V save files. Used recuva and test disk and no .bak files were recovered.
