    Sounds like a great vacation. What did you do? Murica is so big, you still could go on vacation during the covid stuff. In the Netherlands I could go on vacation everywhere on a bicycle. I ended up with an amazing condition. I should drink in a bar ffs.

    Otherwise the vacation would have been undoubtedly too short.

    @rooter I'm not from the US but I just went to a different island with zero COVID cases, beaches and all that. Maybe you can have a bike off with @Tayo.

    @rutee07 Would totally do that with @Tayo. But I live in Zwolle. I said I could travel whole netherlands on a bike. In reality I do running 10 to 30 km daily. I feel better than ever - but it is not me. I program in bars with friends and its my favourite thing In the world. Especially in Lviv

    This phenomenon happens to me when I take a break from coding. Fucking sucks like it makes me feel I forgot everything about programming.

    @rooter You are correct; those are the worst.

    ~While defragmenting (aka; finally taking a break):
    Brain: What is this nonsense? DELETE

    I am enjoying this one.
    First time in.... a fucking long time... since I didn't have to do a thing for work, login to any system or... give a shit what anyone is deploying.

    Ah, a peaceful staycation is bliss 🥰

    @rooter Zwolle isn't that far to cycle, on a good day you'll have wind in your back all the way :P

    That is the actual reason for going on vacation in the first place.
    The first day (maybe even the next) back at work you can actually see the bugs and bad design decisions when you look at them.
    Use that time wisely...

    heh, I'm in the process of checking out a project from git and recreating the database because I haven't worked on this project since last August and I don't remember what the fuck it even is.

    Side effects are starting. Nah seriously though, that's why I keep logs of everything I'm doing. Plus it's only for me so I can use profanities and insult my bosses.

    @rutee07 By the way, have you brought all your Disney friends home with you? I'm especially curious about that alligator

    @C0D4 Who are you young beardless man with a weird moustache?

    @Jilano it's how I make @rutee07 giggle in pleasure 🤭

    @C0D4 Hum, that does make sense... I'm going to start using oil and whatnot right away!

    @rooter Setup and architecture mostly. Some companies... definitely the people.

    I worked for a robotics company a long time ago. The VP of Engineering, who was my direct boss, assigned his younger brother to teach and guide me, like an unofficial supervisor. His brother was autistic — brilliant, but a total asshole. He didn’t understand tact, being nice, what was rude, etc. and whenever he got mad at anything (and he had a lot of triggers), he would just get vicious.

    He presented my feature (a fancy pdf invoice generator) to the engineering department in about 20 seconds by scrolling through the code and saying something along the lines of “I don’t know what this does, this method ... holy shit it’s still going... and this here probably does something but idk what... and that’s the end. It apparently makes PDFs.”

    The entire upper management was a clique, and they al acted the same. Wishy-washy, never said anything definite because then they could be wrong (with the exception of my boss; back to that in a minute) and they bloody WORSHIPPED the company President. He also didn’t understand tact and was an asshole, but with him it was sort of deserved because he was always right and would explain things. Just not always so nicely.

    Anyway. Bossmang. He liked to change history. While he was wishy-washy too, he would semi-confidently tell you things. But when he turned out to be wrong, he would always tell you that you remembered it wrong and that he said something else. I took to writing everything down, printing a copy of message he sent me, etc. (especially when he gave me permission for things) and confront him about it later when needed. He haaaated me for that.

    I eventually moved to salary there, and he said “it wasn’t about the hours” — yet if I ever worked fewer (even if I averaged many more) he would flip his shit, and follow it up with “but it’s not about the hours.” Yeah right.

    Definitely nightmares about the people there.

    Me too, I open my backlog every half hour, then find something else to do.

    I moved my desk and desktop pc, removed the jail-like things from my toddler's crib, ate some tamales, had coffe.

    Still haven't touched a single ticket.
