    @Floydian lol #5 I am alright, what's with your whole action movie life? 😁

    @Floydian is the whole kill wave over at least? and whats with the idea of switching to PM?
  • 2
    @JoshBent it's not over yet. I am anticipating that in next few months my life would be much much better, because I believe that the hour is darkest just before the dawn.

    And waiting for the appraisal cycle to complete and the lay off thing to settle before I try for PM or same role in different project.

    @Floydian good luck, would be interesting to see you switch roles 😊
  • 1
    @JoshBent I would love to be a PM as I have the natural skill set for this.

    What's up with your projects?

    @Floydian You mean devrant scripts? haven't had the energy rush yet to do anything new or maintain the older ones (probably dfox and trogus are already on it anyway :P), mainly because I am recovering from my own devils too

    looking into e-commerce a bit though, as it's something I was always fascinated about and would like to give a try and have another service based project in mind that I fully designed already, but just didn't feel like doing yet, mainly again, due to just wanting to get from day to day, with smallest friction possible so to say 😅

    @JoshBent so is it outsourced project or your own idea?
  • 1
    @Floydian completely my own idea and will create it myself too eventually :)

    @JoshBent getting into business world?

    Well good luck. The path to entrepreneurship is not an easy one.

    Looking for business resources? Hit me up. I have some.

    @Floydian haha yeah kind of, have had my adventures before, but I feel this would be the first "real" one.

    @JoshBent so what are you gonna sell?

    @Jase Don't worry, you'll be selected.

    @JoshBent hahaha I am struggling with my sticker plan. If it works out, I will set up a store. Lol

    @Jase then how are you surviving?
  • 1
    @Floydian not sure I caught your idea before, you want to print laptop stickers?
  • 1
    @JoshBent yes. Like the devRant types, custom shape cut stickers.

    But I am unable to find a good paper and a print shop who can print it for me.

    I visited a nearby shop. The idiot there said they can print on the paper I gave them because it was folded here and there a bit which would destroy his printer. what the fuckkk!!! A folded paper would destroy a printer????

    @jAsE what is benefits? Do you mean the government one?

    I have little to no idea about all that. Teach me.
  • 1
    @Floydian from what I've read that might as well be true, some expensive printers are a bitch to maintain and if the paper is just slightly too thick or corners too easily, it'll jam or leave a mark on the barrel somehow, that's at least what I remember from like a decade ago lol

    Did you think of having a Chinese store print it for you? there's thousands of all sorts of printing businesses that for sure could take sticker printing on a certain level, though it's a bitch to find good ones that actually do good quality like the ones from sticker mule.
  • 1
    @Floydian also you could ask dfox and trogus where they get theirs from, since devrant stickers are easily even better than any I so far saw floating around, though probably it is sticker mule, which wouldn't help with starting an own business.
  • 1
    @jAsE is there anything you're not certified as or own a business of, holy shit 😂
  • 1
    @jAsE I know for sure that you're a tough soul to break, it's impressive what you have done and had/have in mind (I would have barely any idea where to start looking to partner up to print company USB sticks and all that), focus on getting yourself up and running and then you'll have that sudden kick one day to just do things in random order again, but this time with much better data security, which iirc you already started doing too, remember us once you're the king of the hill, quite literally 😁
  • 1
    @jAsE one devrant account at a time, but you'll get there, we all are in deep shit and I wish I could comment how much I can relate to most of your stones, but just know that you're amazingly capable and just not in the best spot right now.
  • 1
    @JoshBent I don't think this print shop owner would have a that kind of expensive printer, especially for printing stickers which occurs once in a blue moon for them.

    What about the Chinese shops? You mean AliExpress? Do they take custom orders?

    We have some services here in India which provide such solutions, but problem is that we need to order minimum of 500 stickers of same design. What the hell I am going to with so much of same design artwork!!!!

    Might first get a paper of good quality and then find a decent print shop in town or city. Will have explore a lot on foot.

    @jAsE How do you do that? Estickers send you stickers and you sell them?

    Also, then if you extra time and get enough government benefits for food and shelter, then why don't you groom yourself up and develop your skillsets t find a decent job?

    Well, good thing about your country is that one can opt for any job ass dignity of labour. Here, we do not have that kind of privilege.

    @Floydian AliExpress is more consumer centered, rather than connection building, its parent company Alibaba would be probably the best way to get in touch with these kind of connections - though they might want you to have stock too, that's basically how it's usually handled with almost any non custom printing I think

    @jAsE

    One day, a person presented Mughal Emperor, Jalaluddin Akbar with a diamond ring. King Akbar started thinking. He announced: I want my courtiers to write some inscription on this ring which should make a sad person happy when he reads that writing. At the same time, those words should make a happy person sad when he reads them.

    People were puzzled. What can be those words which will make a sad person happy and a happy person sad? King’s Vizier, Beerbal, took the ring to his home and next day returned the ring to King Akbar. He wrote those words which could make a sad person happy and a happy person sad.

    The inscription on ring was: This time will pass too!

    @Floydian I don't think just taking any job, even if the opportunity is there, is what one should strive for, nor do I think it's an exclusive privilege?

    @JoshBent Stocking is an issue. Not the real estate, but it leads to a lot of dead stock :(
  • 1
    @Floydian great read, was expecting something worse
  • 1
    @Floydian yeah, handling stock is tough, that's probably why most sticker companies changed their model from "drop ship" printing to making the client buy enough for it to be worth, so there's never left overs
  • 2
    @JoshBent Atleast for the survival until you have job you like or want.

    Why isn't it an exclusive privilege?

    @Floydian reading my last message I am not even sure anymore what I actually wanted to say, time to take some rest, not sure if I should comment on something as subjective as jobs right now, but.., since I think the way it's put - anybody can find 'some' job, just not the one they want or can do, it actually can have exactly the opposite effect of having a "temporary job" most often imho

    Hope I could press some last thoughts out that make some sense, might rephrase later 😅

    @JoshBent Good night Josh. You need rest. Haha Lol #22
