You might not think sudo is all that great, but next time you run into a permissions issue in windows, sudo will reveal itself as the god too good for that beleaguered turd of an OS.
Today's issue began with me running low on space on one of my drives, so I moved a large folder to another drive. I got the usual errors (all this is in windows) from "thumbs.db is a system file and we're too stupid to account for it properly" to "this file's path would be too big for the destination folder" despite the fact that copying from D: to E: is the same fucking size path and it let that shit get written without throwing an error the fucking first time.
But I digress, After copying the folder, Deluge (a bittorrent client) recreated parts of the original folder before I could reassign shit to the new location. No big deal, shit's now been reassigned, let me just go and delete the recreated wrongly placed crap.
"I'm sorry Fambida, you need admin permissions"
Ok, what? I AM the fucking admin. So I open the start menu, type explorer, right click, and look for "run as administrator", because we all know that in Windowsland administrator doesn't always mean administrator. It's not fucking there. I'm starting to get a little bit vexed here, because that method works like a charm for cmd. But nope, no go.
Next up: "Oh! I'll take ownwership and then baleet it all." Nope. Upon right clicking the folder and going through the whole properties, security, permissions jazz for taking ownership of something, the usual permissions stuff won't come up. I don't have permissions... to VIEW the fucking permissions... in order to try to change the FUCKING PERMISSIONS!
I ended up using a utility called "Unlocker" to try deleting it. It couldn't do it immediately, but could on next reboot. To delete that shit using linux would have required two reboots anyway since I dual-boot, so unlocker was faster. However, if I'd been in linux in the first place, all it would have taken would have been a sweet simple "FUCK YOUR BULLSHIT I AM SUDO!" (or maybe a chmod, but that's a lot easier than windows as well)
Thank you, sudo. You are far superior to the shit I put up with because games.
