If any of you ever get in to a position where you are purchasing hardware for a business, do not ever buy Dell. God damn their support is awful. Have been working with them for over 36 hours with two hours of sleep on a basic upgrade that they fucked up. They hire the most unqualified people that read from a script and have no idea how any of this works.

You're also going to get a constantly rotating account team that struggles to do next to nothing and then is replaced as soon as you start to build a rapport with them.

:rofl: X2 again?

The problem with WoW classic (for me specifically) is that I don't have strong nostalgia for that time in my life and the game is soooooooo figured out now :hs:

Wrath was where our guild really nailed it down. BC was where we formed up and starting doing end-game stuff, then they released Wrath.

It's mostly nostalgia for us - but part of the problem one of the main people moved to Hawaii so we'd have to coordinate on her time schedule and that's tough since we're all old fucks now :mamoru:

played OG Wrath with some oters

This time it was VxRail. You know. The product sold as "You press the easy button and it auto upgrades" yet it's so bad that support tells you absolutely not to do it because something always breaks and they need to fix it.

Meanwhile, one of our PowerStore arrays has completely shit the bed where we can't do most administrative tasks and for some reason snapshots just magically stopped being generated for over a month and are now magically working again.

I bet all of your powerstore arrays need new DIMMs :mamoru:

we have one in our lab and killed it within a week - lost data, was completely unavailable.

dell issued a code upgrade to fix that issue


it happened again :rofl:

It's constant code updates for Unity and PowerStore to fix issues that cause data loss or the SP's to reboot. What an embarrassment of a company.
