I just want a better life. A life where people can live freely. Where skill and talent is enough to make a living. A life where we don't have to be scared of the police.7
Friend from a company I did an integration delivery with sent me this lovely slack discouse. I had no idea their HR lady let her freak flag fly at work 😏
Wonder how many years she's been casually tossing that one around.1
Context: one of my dad's friends is a veterinarian and he's opening a new clinic. My dad is renovating the building and I'm supposed to handle the IT part (Ethernet cables, server, laptops etc.).
Last Monday I get a phonecall from the veterinarian (which I'll be calling boss from now on) that he plans to open the next Monday. I ask him what hardware is bought and if anything is already done. As you can probably guess, the only hardware bough are Ethernet cables (with no plugs) that my dad run under the floor half a year ago.
After a brief wtf?! I asked him what he needs. The conversation goes like this (shortened a bit):
> What do you want/need?
< Make it good
< Make it so that the network lasts for years
> Ok, but what do you want? Do you want cameras? WiFi? How many PCs and laptops? What software will you use for client/patient management?
< Yes, I want cameras. Look around and decide where would be best. Clients won't need WiF, so don't botheri. I think one pc and two laptops will be fine.
> Ok, what software do you use? What does it need on the server?
< Don't worry about that. I signed a deal for a monthly subscription. I got a special offer where if I sign it for at least a year I get 10% off.
// We had this conversation about 2 month earlier. I was against cloud software because internet here is flaky at best and if the company goes out of business he loses all client data
> Why would you do that? I told you it's a bad idea because [above comment]
< Yeah, but [his employee] convinced me. He said that with cloud he'll be able to check that stuff even from his home.
> I could've set it up so that he could do it anyway. Whatever, did you get an internet connection to the building?
< Well, I've been considering getting LTE...
> Stop. You already made one mistake. If you also get an unreliable internet you risk having to close the clinic when you lose connection due to storm.
// Here he tried to argue a bit, but I was able to convince him to not do the stupidest thing he could
< Oh, and can you make it so that when I'm here I have internet on my phone and laptop?
At this point I just wanted to smack him in the face.
Anyways, a week and a half later the clinic is still closed. Not just because half of the stuff needed arrived last Friday, but mostly because the building is not usable yet. The renovations on second and third floor haven't even started yet.
And there is still no internet connection. Last Friday I even went to a local ISP (with his permission) to get everything done and he just has to go and sign the contract. When I asked him today about it he said he still hasn't been there.
I just saw a job posting that asks for experience printing printed circuit boards.
Someone let me know where I can get that printer.4
How the fuck does my boss setup 2FA using her name, and then forget that she setup 2FA even though she sees the fucking app send her a code every time she logs in. Now we need to get her to reset her password so we can get the information so another team member can access the information they need.1
I think I figured where to draw the line when trying to learn cybersecurity.
No fucking thanks, I’d rather eat a big steaming pile of dog shit.1
Anyone knows any high power IoT LoRa boards? I have tried the adafruit and heltech ones, but didn't do much. I need it for a low permittivity environment.3
Hello world 👋...
i just finished a mini project... i made a page for creating quick temporary apis. I'm not much of a front end developer, please check the page and tell me how i can improve it🙂.
Mgmt: We need performance metrics' comparison for those 2 tests ASAP, we'll ping you every 5 minutes
AWS Cloudwatch: *unusually slow - takes ~2 minutes to add/remove a metric or change the timeframe*
AWS Autologout: "Let me just intervene here right before you take that screenshot that took you 1.5 hours to filter out..."1
So, this lecturer had a consistent set of question types every fucking year for the past 5 or so years. But now, even while covid and all the other shit that has been happening, he decides to change his question types, all of which used to be calculations.
I mean, really, which dumbass told him it's a good idea?
Aaaaaaauuuuuurghhhhhh 😡😤😠😫😩😖😭😡💀 I'm gonna fail 😭3
Not tested it yet, but some here might find it useful:
What is PersistentWindows?
A poorly named utility that persists window positions and size when the monitor display count/resolution adjusts
and restores back to it’s previous settings.
For those of you with multi-monitors running on a mixture of DisplayPort and any other connection, you can run
this tool and not have to worry about re-arranging when all is back to normal.
To hell with Git. I just spent the last one hour feeling weird about teaching young people how to fork remotely.5
Most painful code!!
Well , it was to write a code in 'C' which will print first N times prime numbers. As a noob , it was really very painful.2
Longest/shortest job interview you ever had?
My shortest was under 10m, i came in for the wrong function via a recruiter.
My longest is 135m the guy just kept on talking and talking and talking and....11
Think I'm about to start back on my kanban/mindmap/trello like project (the one I accidentally deleted 🙄)....
I've got some ideas about which databases I might like to try in each category but I'm sorta spinning my wheels on the type to use (nosql, sql, graph, etc). Figure it'd be better to actually start there instead of building the ui first then coming to this problem later.
When I built the last one it was only going to be basic trello card which firestore seemed adequate enough for but this time I want to be able to easily break down the info on each card and toggle views to arrange the different fields into a calendar, mindmap (thought bubbles), list view etc and I can't find a lot of info to help with this decision. Assuming sql or graph based on what I already know of them but I'm honestly not sure.3
