steam ‘multi-platform’ and useless stuff

I Bought a game (my blog) and the soundtrack came in mp3 ogg and wma formats – the last of those being a shit microsoft format wiith drm.

I suppose that is one way to support stuff, not that i was supposed to notice that.

The music is pretty good and for the extra three pence for all the other dlc content seemed a risk worth taking rather than just buy part one and part 2.

Those steam badges are also useless, however i did create a badge for making gems from badges that i did not expect but i have no clue about how to use them. I suppose if you have Asperger’s life is hell being completist or needing that pre-release thing worth absolutely nothing  but as a casual gamer i have no desire to show off my steam things to people.

They cannot buy bananas. it is odd that ‘dlc’ is non badge thing compatible.  Not that i give a stuff.

If you have suggestions about what to with these useless steam stuff drop me a comment.

Sogo ‘magic’

The prime ministers second job

I discussed this here once before and decided to have another go.  Having installed it i decided to try and get it working but having found a manual and created a user and table for postgres i came a cropper once again for not having an ldap server (my blog) and that the sql tables are created by magic via ldap

It is most specific for microshit* users but once again this thing defeats me its apache config looks like voodoo.

Its ironic that this thing uses all the things i deem awful.  Kind of explains a lot.and why i shall speak no more of it.


Fixing systemd postfix failures via cron

Being when i write this it is winter i decided to reboot the zoos server and put in standard* more for the cooling fans, having done that (free room heat) i restarted and forget to check if postfix had started (my blog) .

Eventually i hand type the postmulti (my blog) command and it works. As reboots are rare this is not an everyday occurrence i can excuse the behaviour after all systemd wont tell me why it fails since its perfect so i must be to blame for going outside of ‘default’ systemd configuration..

So i decide to create an onboot script with cron and the @reboot command and that now starts postfix for me and does something that systemd cannot do

I imagine the idiots who develop systemd are most upset with me and will development a cron replacement that disables that feature.  If they do then i think my migration to a bsd variant will be guaranteed.

If your software sucks like systemd does then best do not blame us ‘users’ for stuff that other things can do.

Now i have also read that the world has got wise to Indian it ‘experts’ be they technical  support fraudsters, and the disingenuous seo and website developers in which you have to give them a a+ rating or you never see the thing to rate its quality.

I am amused that these it professionals use hotmail or whatever the Microsoft free internet email name is these days to send these requests to do ‘business’.   The zoo has it’s own mail server

Had the zoo’s rules not have been triggered then no doubt some scammer from india would probably be thinking about ringing us up and fixing our computers he/she intentionally tried to broke.- something to look forward to.

The poster boy for inidian it is no doubt Kkaran Bahree who was caught selling your bank details some years ago

shit at dmarc:

Since i like to name those awful at dmarc (my blog) and many of those already mentioned retain there status. I feel it necessary to add to that list.

Why they use Microsoft software, (my blog) no wonder gchq and the nsa hacked them.which made the newspapers until reporting spies became a non reportable thing (my blog).

I look forward to informing me that there dmarc inbox is ‘full’ once again.  Oh yes
#554-5.2.2 mailbox full 554 5.2.2 STOREDRV.Deliver.Exception:QuotaExceededException.MapiExceptionShutoffQuotaExceeded; Failed to process message due to a permanent exception with message Cannot open mailbox /o=BelgacomGroup/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=A04071/cn=Microsoft System Attendant. 16.55847:C2000000,

A feedback loop!



The wisdom of crowds goes missing

Telephones are the bane of my existence – and i now know more about telephones than i ever kind of desired to know.

The rule of interconnecting any telephones together appears to be a lost art and something the phone company does , Panasonic after two telephone lines told me only there phones work only with other panasonic phones omitting the fact from the crap paper instructions with the wrong phone number on as well.

So it on to pastures new something else i given wrong info on.

Then i had a question a dect repeater of which some idiot who had not a fucking clue what repeater is.

After scouring several web sites i think i can inter connect things but compromises are needed by the zoo.

I am beginning to see why people hate landlines, although i do acknowledge that mobile phones can be lacking in in built up areas and so as they stand are not replacement.

I am sure something else will mean i have to replace the lot. and give me a headache and further complaints from the monkey bouse.   Yeah I love telephones.

A windows 10 tale to amuse you

The zoo had a visiting professor with a presentation file on a usb thing which was ‘lost’. Strangely windows 10 did not deluge the user with messages or where the thing was mounted to.

Perhaps Microsofts (microshit) attempt at idiot proofing is still too difficult for manyof its users.

The zoo is a linux shop. We soon found the lost thing that visiting professor could not find.

Cancer charity scams

Meet Wendy Watson MBE (not here) of National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline

Since 2012, the charity’s accounts also show that as little as 2.8% of annual donations has been spent on “charitable activities”, such as running the helpline

No wonder there is no cure for any cancer, its a nice little owner for Wendy Watson and ilk for the pink trademark as well, after all if you cure something you dont need scam artists like Watson MBE.

Think about it.
