Well, somewhere, engineering was attempted

Here’s a supermicro that pissed us off this week. It’s from 2015 and clearly got dumped on us as the result of a certain “text-that-gets-scrolled-on-the-bottom-of-the-news” vendor cleaning out back stock when my workplace ordered a new system.

Blaarffff. It literally seems like the bios doesn’t like certain monitors, and you have to fight it for hours to get video. You’d think with a vendor like Supermicro you’d get a board built with better parts but this thing looks like a damn Soyo. Remember Soyo? They drove themselves out of business by delivering dumpshit. This Supermicro sure looks like overpriced dumpshit complete with “hey look it’s 2001 again” capacitors.

There shall be cuddles

There is no such thing as personal space when you have an extremely cuddly cat. Sorry for the blurry images here.

Also, Comcast seems to have stepped up their irritating deep packet inspection and munging that makes WordPress hard to use, but more on that when I don’t have a cat on my shoulder

Caution: cuteness ahead!

I came home and found this happy crescent roll on my pillow

She started to stick out a paw and I put my hand near it and she put her little peet on my hand and pulled it closer

Then I found myself confused as suddenly there was a big shrimp on the pillow

Eventually we were treated to some major sleepy happy kitty action

And once again I foolishly placed my hand under her little chin aaaaaand zonk I’m a kitty pillow

Little box of happiness

Lately, Cassie has liked to hide in this box and play with the ribbon as we swing it in front.

What a little cutie patootey!

I was gonna say something here about old Telos phone hybrids but……. Meow! Thanks for taking my mind off those, Cassie.

Excuse me, Cassie, you are being too dang cute.

After an experience that wanted to make me go SHITPOST ANGRILY I overslept this morning and woke up to the sight of a happy tortie peacefully sunning herself and I couldn’t even be mad anymore over the previous evening’s events that had me stuck up a mountain for hours while a technician for Derp Valley Wireless was ordered to try re-aiming an Ubiquiti radio over and over again because the team down in the office was seeing an RSSI value 2 dB shy of what their link calculations said it should be. Four hours for 2 dB. But look at this tortie. SQUEEEEEEEEEEE
