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.
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
