Bank of America's computers crashed worldwide today and I'm not hearing a word about it on the news. They wouldn't let me withdraw more than $1000 and would not allow any deposits. Now I know what you are all talking about.

I was pissed. The one time I needed to pay cash for something and they didn't care. I had to throw a fit for an hour and refuse to leave before they cared. Lots of others were just told no and left. Fuck those people.

You won't settle until I send a file type your computer will open? Ok.

Hey guys! I hope you all enjoy another lawyer story. Same disclaimer - I'm not your lawyer and none of this is legal advice (don't take legal advice from internet randos).

Client comes in with a seemingly simple auto collision. Client was hit, other driver got out and said something like "Ohmygod are you ok? I'm so sorry, I dropped my phone and reached to get it...". Client had a dashcam which recorded the whole thing including the admission of guilt. Easy client right?

Turns out the admission was really important, because the type of accident didn't make a 'determination of fault' easy (imagine a rear end collision at a red light as an easy determination, but a collision at a four way stop sign as a hard determination). When the cops showed up, the police report found both drivers at fault AND did not mention any statements from the other driver.

But we have our admission and my client's damages were above the other guy's policy limit. So I send a demand to the insurance company for policy limits. Note that the insurance company has an obligation to negotiate in good faith, which becomes important later.

Lawyer from insurance reaches out and says (basically) - "Look, my client says they were driving safely, and the police report says shared fault." The initial offer is like 10 grand. I replied "Yeah but my client had a dashcam and it recorded your client admitting fault."

Its important to understand that this was before dashcams were common. It wasn't my first case with a dashcam, but it might have been my third or fourth. No mention of the dashcam was made on the police report.

Insurance attorney says (I imagine while twirling a dumb mustache) "Interesting, can you send me a copy of the video?" I say sure and send it over. He replies "I can't open this!" So I send him a link to vlc media player "It's a weird extension, and windows media player won't play it. But VLC will, just follow the installer instructions and it should play no problem."

He says "I'm not installing something to watch your alleged dash cam video. Send me a file I can play if you want me to consider it."

This makes me unhappy, but I tried again "It will take less than a few minutes to install, you can watch the video and listen to your client admit fault." He say "We are done here until you send something I can play."

Ask Anything Wednesday - Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science

Welcome to our weekly feature, Ask Anything Wednesday - this week we are focusing on Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science

Do you have a question within these topics you weren't sure was worth submitting? Is something a bit too speculative for a typical /r/AskScience post? No question is too big or small for AAW. In this thread you can ask any science-related question! Things like: "What would happen if...", "How will the future...", "If all the rules for 'X' were different...", "Why does my...".

Asking Questions:

Please post your question as a top-level response to this, and our team of panellists will be here to answer and discuss your questions. The other topic areas will appear in future Ask Anything Wednesdays, so if you have other questions not covered by this weeks theme please either hold on to it until those topics come around, or go and post over in our sister subreddit /r/AskScienceDiscussion , where every day is Ask Anything Wednesday! Off-theme questions in this post will be removed to try and keep the thread a manageable size for both our readers and panellists.

Answering Questions:

Please only answer a posted question if you are an expert in the field. The full guidelines for posting responses in AskScience can be found here. In short, this is a moderated subreddit, and responses which do not meet our quality guidelines will be removed. Remember, peer reviewed sources are always appreciated, and anecdotes are absolutely not appropriate. In general if your answer begins with 'I think', or 'I've heard', then it's not suitable for /r/AskScience.

If you would like to become a member of the AskScience panel, please refer to the information provided here.

Past AskAnythingWednesday posts can be found here. Ask away!

I hope the people who hacked the computer system at my mom's hospital get exactly what they deserve.

My mom has stage 4 cancer and is unlikely to last the year. Recently, she was awaiting an appointment to have her lung drained of fluid, which rendered her unable to even walk to the bathroom without losing her breath and caused her constant pain. However, her ability to get an appointment for the necessary scan and following procedure was delayed for a while because a group of hackers took over the hospital's computer network and wouldn't restore access until the hospital paid them what I assume was a very large sum of money. Thus, she, on top of dealing with the stress of her terminal condition, was made to experience entirely unnecessary pain for no reason other than some shitheads wanting money.

To each and every person involved in carrying out the hack, I sincerely hope you suffer immense pain in your life equal to or greater than the pain you caused my mother and any other individual who was made to suffer similarly because of your selfish behavior. To the extent harsh circumstances brought you to the point in life where you needed to attack a hospital for money, you deserved every bit of them and more.

Edit: Thank you so much for the supportive responses. It really does help in processing the anger I have over the whole thing. In contrast to my hopes for the hackers, I wish each one of you peace and comfort for you and your family members and offer the gentle reminder to appreciate the value of time spent with those you love.

Guy who builds computers for a living destroys his cheap name brand computer.

This story is from years ago when I provided tech support for a company of cheap pc clones that are no longer available in the United States, but which are still sold in other parts of the world.

Now to say that many of the purchasers of these computers were first time users is a vast understatement of the case. Many of my best stories from this time come from the nexus between bad hardware design, cheap customer service solutions and insanely novice users.

I get a call from a young man who introduces himself by declaring that he builds computers for a living. (I ask myself, "Why if you have the ability to build a computer would you ever buy one of these cheapo systems?") After purchase, he wants to boost the video and bought an add-in VGA card. Installing such a card is easy, but sometimes you have change a jumper or a dip switch on the computer's motherboard to get the computer to recognize and use the new hardware.

For those who don't remember such things, dip switches are like little, tiny light switches that can be turned on and off with the tip of a pin. Pin jumpers are little pieces of plastic that can be placed over two pins to create a closed circuit, or removed to break the circuit. Pin jumpers are cheaper, so that's what we use. Some of our computers at this time have literally 50 or more jumpers and if you open or close the wrong circuit, it will render the computer unusable without a technician to put things back the way they should be. We had one case of an OCD ADD teenager who had been swapped out twice on his computer after pulling every single jumper off the motherboard, and when he did it for the third time, they bought his computer back from him and banned him from ever buying another one in his life. But that's a different story.

So it is not unusual on our computers of the day to need to change a jumper pin configuration for the computer to recognize and use an add-in video card. And knowing this, the young man checks the schematic for the motherboard and the motherboard itself, but cannot identify which jumper does that. But he does see a chip labelled "VGA", and so he extracts this chip, but now his computer no longer boots at all.

This is a real forehead-smack moment for me. First, his model is designed to auto-detect an add-in video card and turn off the on-board video as soon as you boot it up with an add-in card installed. He did not need to change anything for his new graphics card to work. Second, the only chip on his moth

I have a very strong feeling that indian computer hubs were hired to spread FUD on reddit for cheap. They are also giving away awards to any post that contains Glacier Capital. No matter what the context is. Just the word Glacier Capital is enough. Putting this one to test.

It comes with no surprise to how common these call centres and computer hubs are in India. They provide tremendous amounts of services like scam calls, be it social media hyping or even international companies outsourcing something like spreading FUD online for dirt cheap. Yes that is what shitadel and friends are doing. During mid march Glacier capital was the highest searched in India as Kenny and friends were coming up with a new form of FUD to spread amongst apes. We clearly saw how any Glacier Capital post got many awards no matter what the context was pro glacier or not and that is due to lack of education. The so called hubs hire people with bare minimum knowledge/education.

Why you may ask? There are a lot of people that are hired in these scam hubs and the job requirements are just enough to use a computer and English knowledge should be around 40%.

These small time indian firms have been funded with our beloved western Shills to go ahead and spread FUD online and why is that we always see so many people online on these reddit subs in the pre hours like at 2 am 3 am monitoring these pages and downvoting or giving awards up to 60-70 in 10 minutes because it’s fucking day time in India.

Short holders have gone beyond unimaginable tactics and FUD spreading campaigns and we should be ever so vigilant and prepare for only worse.

The hour is near and the squeeze is closer than you think. Their attempts are getting worse.

REMEMBER WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AS WE JUST HODLπŸ’ŽπŸ€š. THEY HAVE EVERYTHING TO LOSE EVEN THEIR LIVES.

Edit: i posted this in the day time. India is asleep around then. It may or may not be true but a lot of posts throughout the early hours were getting a shit ton of awards just because of the word Glacier Capital. I did not do this for karma whoring or For awards as i gain nothing from Reddit but just beautiful DD from amazing apes on here. Love y’all keep up the good work!

He just says random stuff and it could also maybe be an earbud issue. Since my earbud's wire is slowly started to show and break. It says random stuff at times that has been said in other calls and it's always the same things the man says. He's just on a walkie talkie and it's only when my teacher's speaking he's saying code words like "Got it" "646" "What you need help with" "Alright" it's super random but he says some random words that I could also have promised my friends have said.
