With your characteristic level of tact you're lucky they didn't tell you that you need to upgrade to a business class account if you're going to run servers at home. Issue on customer. Ticket closed in record time.
Why don't you just run your servers on a hosting provider? It's easier and saves you a ton of firewall configuration issues and working with cloud hosting providers is a much more marketable skill than running a bunch of metal servers in your closet.
If you're going to host at home at least use a cloud load balancer like route53 or a reverse proxy hosted out on the web. It would have taken you 1 minute to deal with these DDoS attacks on your own and you could even put your services behind a security proxy possibly saving you from another visit by our jolly ursine friend.
I have two laptops with annoying UFEI issues I'd totally pay someone $100 to get the data off them and install linux if they said they could. I wouldn't trust a guy like Skylar to do it though.$20 to replace Windows with a Linux distro when it's F R E E
If his cramps were that severe, the teacher would have probably accommodated him.
The handwritten rule is there to help you. If you write notes by hand, especially when you have to compile the most important ones to bring, chances are you're more than prepared for the test and memorised 99% of the stuff you wrote.
If he had an actual medical issue causing the cramping it would be easy to get accommodations. My bet is that he’s just lazy.
The basal ganglia are associated with a variety of functions, including control of voluntary motor movements, procedural learning, habit learning, eye movements, cognition, and emotion.
People with autism often have dysgraphia where good handwriting takes a significant mental load. It may be genuinely hard for him to take notes and learn from the lecture at the same time. The cramping is because he never bothers to try and use his uncoordinated flippers to do anything other than type. He could get accommodations from the professor or take the time to develop a workaround that he could use for the rest of his life. He could even fix his handwriting with a small amount of practice which might confer other unexpected cognitive benefits related to his busted basal ganglia.
But instead he decided to paint a big target on his head and learn nothing. If people were lined up around the block waiting to kiss his ass with puckered lips he'd pick fights with them over the color of their lipstick.
