I can relate 😅
Probably a whole 9-hr work day and some change.
I was tasked with creating some Ansible configs for these build agents. The machines being spun up from them were identical, but spread across 3 different networks: A, B, and C. The big difference was one zip. A and B got it from shared drives, but C pulled it from our Artifactory. I was told that the one in Artifactory was the same from both A and B.
A and B were fine but machines on C were failing. I figured it was the zip, and it was...but it took the whole day and 2 30-minute Zoom meetings with different folks.
The problem? Well all 3 zips had the same name: Dir_X.Y.Z_14.0 but
- The zips on A and B unzipped to C:\Path\To\Dir_X.Y.Z_14.0
- The zip on C unzipped to C:\Path\To\Dir_X.Y.Z-14.0
A single-character typo brought me to my knees lol. Someone renamed the directory to have a hyphen, but the zip they created still had an underscore, lol. Ahh good times.
You can use
| in place of
ext is also a substitute for
Limit search to a domain e.g
You can go really weird by combining operators and search terms that will perform a pinpoint search.
When I have the time, I'll write a more comprehensive post about Google searching.
