I got a delivery yesterday (could have been hermes) and the guy asked my date of birth, I gave it without giving it a second thought, shut the door and thought 'wait, that's weird, did I just get scammed?'Hermes, summed up better than me by this tweet
Status updates literally say "Possible delay in delivery due to arrival at incorrect carrier facility" followed by "Delay in delivery due to weather or natural disaster"Hermes are fine, if you don't mind searching all the hedge rows in a 5 mile radius of the place they claim to have delivered it.
Verbatim From the Hermes employee handbook:Status updates literally say "Possible delay in delivery due to arrival at incorrect carrier facility" followed by "Delay in delivery due to weather or natural disaster"
Yeah, I imagine it's like this in their company:Verbatim From the Hermes employee handbook:
10.5: Important Codes
1. If a fellow employee within a 10 mile radius of you has successfully delivered a package: You must fail to deliver the current package you're carrying and claim "natural disaster"
Natural Disaster: "A 'Natural Disaster' is a commonly used phrase at Hermes and is simply a more safe for work way of saying "We're fucking useless"
Don't ask how I got this.
They're not the only ones to use the "natural disaster" line; I've had that from UPS twice, once when I knew my item was in their DC less than five miles from me.Yeah, I imagine it's like this in their company:
"Pfft, that's not getting delivered today, so lets just say it went to the wrong distribution centre so we don't get any complaints... oh shit, wait... if we say that the client can pay us less as it's no longer a one day delivery, can't have that... err... fuck it, lets just say there was an earthquake, after all who's going to check?"
Honestly, I think it was just total BS from them. It feels more like they maybe lost a disk and it got trashed.What kind of hosting provider has access to your VM's to do automatic patching in the first place outside of you control? I guess you get what you pay for.
That I can believe. I just create lots of dummy email accounts on a domain I own and sign up on each for the free one year AWS trial period as required. Run the server at home and tunnel everything from AWS back to my real server. End up paying less than $10 a month.Honestly, I think it was just total BS from them. It feels more like they maybe lost a disk and it got trashed.
A result of the world moving from physical cores to virtual cores I guess?I've rented a dedicated server for a few years but realise I really don't need the power so am looking for a capable VPS at the moment. I've had one from Contabo before and it was fine but I have no idea how they're so cheap. They're so cheap I'm thinking there must be some sort of trickery about what they're offering - "10 cores", 60 GB of RAM, 1600 GB of SSD storage for £~25 a month? That doesn't sound right.
Funnily enough I was talking to like 4 guys that play star citizen already and were saying its pretty good and the future looks promising for it.The only thing more annoying than Chris Roberts running a virtual car sales event is the fact that I went to click on Doom Eternal last night in the steam client and it's not there!
It's un-installed itself from the steam library. I'm hoping not from the PC completely as I don't want to have to do another 3 day install
1) It's not a game yet.Funnily enough I was talking to like 4 guys that play star citizen already and were saying its pretty good and the future looks promising for it.
I guess it's nice to get the opinion of people that actually play the game
It's like 70-80 a year worldwide.When a front page news story is:
Most ppl in the uk afraid of finding a brown trout or used condom floating near them than a shark tbh.It's like 70-80 a year worldwide.
I actually think reporting on them is damaging not just for sharks but also humans.
Lots of people in blighty terrified of the sea and missing out for no good reason.
