[WayBackprogramming practices – Unwritten rules of rewriting another team member’s code – Software Engineering Stack Exchange

Especially the second answer has a nice set of follow-up questions to ask yourself when you are thinking about rewriting someone else’s code.

Some thoughts for the upcoming year (:

Monitoring: you can ignore ShellHWDetection service warnings on when it’s not started

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/31

I’m monitoring quite a bunch of Windows machines with Zabbix.

One of the services I turn off for monitoring is ShellHWDetection as otherwise you get this notification often:

Service "ShellHWDetection" (Shell Hardware Detection) is not running (startup type automatic)

When it happens, it’s always when there is nobody logged on to the machine. But sometimes you do not get this message. I’ve not fully figured out the pattern well, but since the service is associated with auto-play of inserted CD/DVD/USB and other media, I don’t bother too much.
