    [–] AITAH for pressing charges against my pregnant best friend? SparkitusRex 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    They actually go up to 38DDD in a couple styles, but yeah all the cute stuff stops around C or D at best.

    The "Pink" brand I think only goes up to D.

    [–] AITAH for pressing charges against my pregnant best friend? SparkitusRex 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    My boobs fluctuate in size so drastically depending on my pregnancy hormones, I'm at the same point right now. And I'm only like 4 months in.

    [–] Possibly a new personal most painful call SparkitusRex 1 points ago in talesfromtechsupport

    That's fair. I was on them for 10 years or so, between call center jobs and shit tech support jobs. I know my prescription quadrupled in those four years because of tolerance.

    I had to wean off about a year ago though because I was going to start trying for a child. Hasn't been as bad off them as I expected, because my job's a lot better now.

    [–] After having Flynn for a couple weeks we realized everyone deserves a friend so meet Percy! SparkitusRex 5 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in corgi

    She had no problem holding her pee, it was just poop. And she was like 5 months old when I got her.

    Edit to add: also I'm not an idiot I know how to potty train a dog, I have several crate trained dogs.

    [–] After having Flynn for a couple weeks we realized everyone deserves a friend so meet Percy! SparkitusRex 32 points ago in corgi

    Mine was the worst as a puppy. For some reason she totally understood "don't poo in the house" but "don't poo in your crate either" was a wild and foreign concept. Every night she'd go outside first, and yet every morning we'd have to wash her blankets.

    Now she's 7 years old and has moooossstttllyyyy figured out blankets are for snuggling, not for pottying.

    [–] I made a business card for my wife (34 weeks) SparkitusRex 20 points ago in BabyBumps

    I still have bills and just because I'm building a whole new person doesn't mean that I am not still skilled and valuable in the work force as well.

    FTFY.

    [–] Does anyone have recommendations for super white foundations??? SparkitusRex 9 points ago in muacirclejerk

    Huh that's sort of neat. I've always been an Ulta kinda girl just because it's more convenient than going into an actual mall, where they all are here. Maybe I'll see what Sephora has to offer after all.

    [–] Possibly a new personal most painful call SparkitusRex 9 points ago in talesfromtechsupport

    Used to work in an environment like this. Honestly? I survived via a lot of benzodiazepines that I called my "no fucks given" pills.

    It also really helped with the unruly and unhinged aggressive people.

    [–] Does anyone have recommendations for super white foundations??? SparkitusRex 60 points ago in muacirclejerk

    Ok so... am I the only person who's super intimidated in makeup stores trying to get color matched? It always seems that the employees are either nowhere to be found, or trying to cram some sale down my throat rather than offering assistance. And it's rare to find someone who actually wants to help.

    So I've never gotten color matched. I mostly just don't wear foundation except the occasional drug store brand BB cream as a result. God knows I've bought some, but it's always wildly wrong and I just chuck it and get mad at wasted money.

    [–] Skincare routine for newbs! SparkitusRex 8 points ago in SCAcirclejerk

    And it's not my unwashed sheets or the four 2-liter bottles of soda I'm drinking a day, so don't even ask.

    [–] This is the founder of Younique. Her face doesn’t match her neck SparkitusRex 40 points ago in Youniqueamua

    I don't know that I'd be mentally making fun of her if I saw her out in public with no context. But I sure as hell would not be buying costmetic products from her.

    [–] When you don’t grow a unibrow naturally SparkitusRex 14 points ago in awfuleyebrows

    They weren't perfect, but they were certainly better back then. Eesh.

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 1 points ago in sysadmin

    All of our infrastructure luckily uses AD passwords (even the Linux servers, actually) so there's no stored master passwords for any of the servers. Everything else is still applicable, though so yeah.

    [–] Ollie is home and healthy! Officially a parvo survivor! SparkitusRex 5 points ago in Dachshund

    Ugh at least there's that. We were sold a puppy (Shiba, not dachshund) who had a moderate grade heart murmur. There absolutely no way the breeder didn't know, and considering it's congenital, it means they either literally never took their dame/sire in for a health checkup, or they knew and chose to breed them anyway.

    After I confronted them they agreed to pay back the adoption fee, but it was on us to get the EKG and neutering. It cost us about $2600 just for the neutering and diagnosis. But if we gave him back to the breeder I know he would have either been put down or just re-sold without telling the next person. So he's our little bundle of health problems now lol.

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 1 points ago in sysadmin

    I'm saving this to speak to our infrastructure team tomorrow.

    This is exactly what I was thinking, like AWS, On-Prem, DataCenter, Off-Prem, etc. Then a sub item for the servers (or hosts, and then sub-sub items for the VMs).

    It would probably be easier if our Jira and Confluence were set up uh... in an informed way. But we're very much that "fuck it we'll do it live" mentality here. haha

    Thank you for the helpful suggestions.

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 1 points ago in sysadmin

    That's fair. The issue is that my team is sort of the dumping ground for monitoring. So someone higher up the chain decides to implement a new system, doesn't document crap, sets up PRTG monitoring, and then waits for it to break in the middle of the night without telling anyone. And then the next day gets mad because it was broken and we didn't tell anyone.

    I'm in a bad position right now where I have to be reactive in order to get ahead, because being proactive isn't an option in my department (unless I get off this god foresaken team).

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 1 points ago in sysadmin

    I meant more specifically what the server does. So if it's a SQL database, a file parser, etc. Host information (parent device if any, IP, and hostname) would be a given.

    Not to mention resources have a tendancy of changing here. Except when I want them to. I've been trying to get a Pentium G2100T upgraded for over a year at one site, everyone tells me it's a non issue. Now all of a sudden the same things have been happening and we've been bandaiding it this whole time and it's shocked Pikachu meme what do you mean we have a pentium processor at that site? That has to be fixed immediately!

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 2 points ago in sysadmin

    Honestly the fact is I'm not even close to the most knowledgable person on the team. And we have about five key people that if something happened to them, we'd be up shit's creek. In fact our DBA did get in a car accident and was on disability for about a year. We had to hire three DB admins in his absence and we still can't get our shit straight.

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 1 points ago in sysadmin

    Oh jeez. I've been here over a year and sometimes I still feel like a new admin here. The biggest issue is how much stuff we have. I edited the original post for more context, but there SO MUCH. In AWS, on prem, in a data center cage, and at 35+ locations around the world. It's a hot mess.

    [–] Has anyone used Confluence to document their infrastrucutre? SparkitusRex 0 points ago in sysadmin

    We already have Confluence in our environment (along with Jira) so now I'm just trying to find the best way to write documentation for this. I'm a bit clumsy getting into it though, I wish there was a "document your infrastructure for idiots" because I'd read it lol.

    [–] Help regarding friends and how they address/talk about my fiancé. SparkitusRex 3 points ago in relationship_advice

    Kit Harington is 5'8" and it's clearly not hindering his ability to be super handsome and manly. Just saying.

    Your friends sound like an insecure lot of children.
