Funny you should mention it. Last night I was dealing with a piece of code that would not submit...change this, change that and the same wrong results kept coming back. Even worse, setting a breakpoint showed one set of values but the result was still wrong...over and over, still wrong ...and then I woke up! I was so annoyed that I had to move to the couch and put on the early morning fake news in order to go back to sleep.
I definitely have dreams that are not about code, but are in code-like patterns, i.e. I can feel I'm moving around through some sort of decision space and entering this bit and coming back and going into that bit, maybe getting stuck in a loop in this other bit. It happens a lot.
OK, cruisy day (so I thought), handed a win10 machine, "we can't get into this machine, can you help?"
yar, I thought, download some quick 'n dirty password reset prog, 30 minutes work, half a day billing out of here.
well there's hundreds of softwares out there, "free," "Free," "FREE!!!"
So many listed and highly recommended on "Top 10 free password reset app" review sites.
You need to install a program (on another PC) to make a bootable password reset bootable USB,
but I only want to make 1 bootable USB, not a farking bunch of them.
(if it's just burning an ISO already got rufus)
OK, who cares, install, run it, (insert USB...) uninstall - other machine not mine either but I hate useless crap on the machines I use - need that machine for other real work
plug USB into target machine, boot, select account, reset password
THIS IS THE DEMO VERSION, PAY MONEY TO ENABLE THIS FEATURE
Oh for farks sake. - So many of those "FREE" programs are like that
Sigh. well couple of hours and three coffee breaks later I finally did find one genuine free genuine working thingo: (UBCD - Ultimate Boot CD if you're interested - no affiliation.)
But it just pisses me off that these are advertised as free
OK some say "free download" - but MOST just say "Free" ... not "free to try," "free to demo," many say "FREE." EVEN WORSE farking review/top-10 sites highly recommending that sheeit and also saying they are FREE.
Sigh. farking windudshit - windud's is not software, it's a mental illness
At least with linux when they say free they really mean FREE, not demo / trial, ... FREE!, and nearly always with source code
