Resetting your expired password in Windows Server 2016

  1. Wake up to your phone spamming you with Could not sign in notifications
  2. Be somewhat concerned
  3. Try and resolve it a few hours later
  4. Realise your username or password is incorrect
  5. Oh shit
  6. Worry
  7. Try and log in through the Outlook Web App
  8. Your password has expired and needs to be changed
  9. Thank fuck
  10. Your username or password is incorrect
  11. Fuck
  12. Try again a few million times
  13. Try using RDP to log in
  14. Can’t, password expired
  15. Hunt your IRC logs to find the admin password
  16. Fail
  17. Finally use Glish to try and log in
  18. It actually changed it
  19. thank fuck

EDIT: It didn’t work, I had to get the admin to reset my password for me

Well, happy belated new year

It’s currently 2016-01-01 23:51 at the time of writing this, so it’s still New Year’s Day.

Anyway, 2016 was so hectic. From a livestream of a puddle becoming popular, to Brexit and Führer Trump, to dozens of celebrity deaths. Not to mention the heaps of conflicts and terrorist attacks. I’m sure glad it’s the end of 2016, however I doubt 2017 will be much of an improvement.

Personally, I think I’ve learned a lot more than I have in years before. I’ve tried new technologies. I’ve tried old technologies. I never put them to proper use, but I’ve had a blast playing and tinkering with them. (But I enjoyed playing with `rdrand` the most, for some reason).

Anyway, here’s to 2017. Let’s hope it’s not as shit as last year. Maybe my resolution should be to blog more…

So yeah…

I moved my site to WordPress. Using Jekyll was pretty pointless and I was too lazy anyway. Also I need that extra RAM that Jenkins uses.

Hopefully this time round I’ll actually do stuff with this site – but you know how that went last time 😉
