Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback. Not sure if they did any others. Made with actual sugar, not corn syrup. I thought they tasted strange, but also they didn't have the same smoothness that "normal" soda did.

I'm on the soda from Mexico bandwagon. Not sure why, but cokes and Pepsis taste so much better.
>> No. 10323 ID: b9e2e1
They probably use sugar instead of corn syrup.

And this is the BEST browser for Linux, folks. I think convincing people this OS isn't shit is going to be a bigger uphill climb than actually porting their client and games.

Windows 8 or Linux 3.7? Pick your poison!
>> No. 10433 ID: 3d9263
I don't know what's supposedly terrible about Linux 3.7, but Ubuntu already ruined itself two years ago when they dropped Gnome for a Mac-inspired UI that was only meant to be used on netbooks. I went with Kubuntu specifically for that reason; they'll have to pry my taskbar from my cold, dead hands.
>> No. 10435 ID: d0bf69

At least when Windows doesn't work, I can content myself by thinking "Microsoft fucked something up".

With all those other OSes-that-end-in-X it's shit like "Did I build the compile right? Am I missing some library? Where would I go to find that? Or is it just that I'm using a weird fucking OS and the program doesn't know how the fuck to run?"

No thanks, I'll take "mediocre, but predictable and mainstream" over "supposedly superior but mired in confusion and lack of support".

I mean, I've just heard too many horror stories. At least with a Mac OS, even, it'd be "No one uses Macs if they can help it so no one makes software for the fucking things". The Linux and Unix and Ubuntu and Sambuntu and Rularururuntu and all that? Heard too many stories of guys who will go on long rants about how 'nix is the only way to go and it's the only OS worth a damn, and then turn around from their 'nix computer to their Windows computer and boot it up so they can actually play games or do some normal work. Or how if you want to get support for the OS, you can't just ask because everyone will be like "Read your manuals loser", you have to say "Man Windows is so awesome at X, why can't 'nix be awesome at X?" and then you'll get eleven different replies about ways 'nix can toootally do X better than Windows.

These stories and others... just, no. Not even once. I'll take my big corporate OS and like it, thank you.
>> No. 10439 ID: 98c9d4

Yeah, I avoid those debates with people who are really into that. I basically sat one of my friends down and told them that I like Windows and they just have to deal with it.

Maybe not minor, but at least it's under warranty for another 4 months.

>> No. 10835 ID: 3d9263
Whoa. Windows actually detects this stuff now? You're lucky. Back in the day, and by that I mean more than a few short years ago, if your hard drive was failing you wouldn't know it until it was too late.
>> No. 10841 ID: dc977f

Yeah, since Vista it's pulled SMART data and tried to give some warning before a drive goes totally tits up. Funny enough, about 4 hours after I posted that image, the drive totally went to hell and started corrupting files left and right. I've never seen Windows boot up before while missing 90% of the system fonts. Not pretty.

Thankfully was able to apply a system image backup I'd made a few days earlier to a different drive without too much trouble. I will say that whoever it was at Microsoft that designed the system image restore UI should be beaten. Instead of just selecting which disk to restore the image's partitions to, you actually choose which disk(s) NOT to apply the restore to. WTF? Forget to tick a checkbox in a dialog box hidden behind a button and boom you lose everything on a secondary disk.

Microsoft is the king of halfassery.
>> No. 10847 ID: b6fa65
Looks like a TRIM-related failure, but that Intel SSD SKU has support for garbage collection build-in, supposedly... Talk about tough luck.
>> No. 10851 ID: db1e58

Yeah, and $diety for-fucking-bid you pick the wrong options in the backup tools. I did a system backup rather than creating a system image when i had a hard disk bail in January. Came back with the new one, set up the Win7 installer, found out that the recovery tools can't do fuckall with a -backup-, they want an image, and the "restore from backup" tool can't do anything with the Program Files directories--if you try, it silently skips them (the tool's specifically wired to ignore "active" directories like Program Files, Users, and Windows to avoid issues; safe mode won't even get around it).

I'm lucky there wasn't much mission-critical in there.

Wait, "Users"? That's where your documents and shit are stored. So, you can't restore anything of value from a backup, basically?
>> No. 10898 ID: db1e58

I -think- Users was among the "no automated restore" list; it's been a couple of months. There's nothing stopping you from going in and getting files back by hand, but the auto-tool won't help you if it's a folder it's designed to skip (even though it's the damn thing that backed it up in the first place).

So yesterday was fun. Had to switch shifts from a midday to a close. Apparently the girl who was suppose to close had a panic attack or something.

Buuuuut as it turns out she wasn't told that she didn't have to come in by the manager. So when I told her she was really confused. Since I have to keep up 30 hours I told her that I have to close but she can stay if she wants. "No I'll just go home. Kthxbai."

And of course I get pinned with the one person who can't figure out how to close to save their life.

To say I'm a bit upset would be a bit of an understatement.

we know its one of the managers, we had that talk cause we are tired of the OWNERS coming down on us and thinking its us cooks taking that food. While we do have a camera in the kitchen its at a bad angle and only cover the back door. so we are currently probably gonna go back to doing night inventory and then locking everything up till the day person...which the only persons that will have keys are the owners and us cause they too now agree its probably the managers.

SunnySoda is really frustrating to keep up with, and I often wonder if he's having some self-loathing issues that causes him to do this.
