It's what started everything for me tech-related

Same, I didn't know what a Teraflop was until I Googled it and found this place. I'm primarily involved in the less hardcore tech stuff, but it's been cool to have people to collaborate with that I never would have met otherwise. Don't see too many people these days, but I still come back just to check, and sometimes to post.

The end of day three away from home for work. Sunday was a 10 hour drive to Raleigh, North Carolina. Yesterday and today I did a couple of PM's (preventative maintenance, mainly cleaning the POS equipment) in two Sprouts in the area. Tomorrow morning, Wednesday, I will drive about 100 miles to do another one in Fayetteville, NC, and then another 150 to Charlotte, NC. Thursday I have another to do in Charlotte. Finally I will get to drive another 8 hours or so home on Friday.

I will be very happy when the company finally decides to put a permanent tech out here. We have a group who will sometimes field the calls but apparently PM's are beneath them. At least next week is a week of vacation.

For approx the past 12 to 15 months I have been struggling with Alcohol. On Monday I made a decision to sweat that Sh** out my system and Fu** me it has been a hard past 5 days.

Alcohol withdrawal is no fun game, it has completely snapped my back in regards to what it take to become an alcoholic, what it takes to maintain alcoholism and what it take to over come it.

I was told it take three days to sweat it out your system cold turkey and I must of had every symptom. Diarrhoea, vomiting, lost weight threw sweating, shaking, no sleep, hallucinations, constantly dehydrated. Just couldn’t drink enough water. been in bed for days and not forgetting the stomach and bowel cramps.

I think I am over the worst of i. Been taking Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, like theirs no tomorrow. I was drinking a 2.5 Litre what is approx 18.8 Units of Alcohol a day, waking up and times, drinking and then falling back to sleep, The only way I could get to sleep was drinking Alcohol.


Tell you what guys, you can go and Fu** that for a laugh. The sweating and diarrhoea with the sickness alone is a killer let alone the constant body temperature drops

The amount of weight I have lost is unreal, I know for fine well fact in the last 12 too 15 months I must of lost a good 4 or even 5 stone. I have all ways been quite big and broad but even my belly is hanging.

Tell you what man, the past 4 days have been no joke. I just simply refuse to to drink after what I have been threw in the past 3 too 4 days too 5 days.

I'm feeling a lot better as of typing this but still not 100% but I'm 90% their.

Alcoholism is just no joke and thats a literal comment word for word.

Ive been in touch with the doctor and I have to go down to the local hospital as I think I'm passing blood when I go to the toilet. I'm waiting for a non emergency ambulance.


I have been to the bathroom three times this morning and each time passed blood.

Fu** this for a laugh.

If one door closes and another one opens, your house is haunted and you need to GTFO.

I have a very stupid question.

Do you guys ever play with your server? So like do you ever do something on it then strip the system back and change things around or do you when having a purposes for a machine ever simply just leave it.

Because I have done so much over the years from jumping from topic to top and a lot of what I know is self taught I have never settled on a project. Take my server for example. I have just installed Ubuntu 18.04 and I'm not sure how long it will last as I have just set up a file server using various software.

Do any of you guys run multiple servers each with their own individual use.

Anyone give feed back on this?
