I fucking hate the modern tech stacks that are forcing to use their products and workflows. Fucking Microsoft. Used to be good but now it's shit.

I had to email the written homework. After finishing it, I attached it and sent it to my professor via email (Outlook on Web). I did not pay much attention.

5 hours later he replies to me saying that he cannot accept this form of submission. I was confused because he mentioned that he wanted it only as attachment via email.

Turns out, Outlook did not attach the PDF. Instead, uploaded it on OneDrive, and embedded a private link on the body. It was 11:55 PM, I was working for 10 hours straight with that assignment and didn't pay attention at all before sending. Fuck this. He was generous enough to accept the submission after the deadline.

I am glad that I went away from Windows 5 years ago. I don't want to touch any MS product anymore. Hopefully they do not fuck up GitHub and implement it with their other half-assed products.

    I hate the expression ‘tech stack’, another way for sales or recruitment fuckwits to try and join in a conversation.

    “Oh, what’s your tech stack?”

    “Well, we use a Python OpenGL pipeline with a Ruby virtual DOM and Rust-powered load balancing with a noSQL front end.”

    “That’s bleeding-edge alright!” *goes back to writing untrue story on LinkedIn*

    @MM83 What's the other term? Modern Technology? Or Modern Workflow? I think "Tech Stack" is an acceptable term, but that answer... it's cringe adding a lot of buzzwords... it's cringe.

    @TopsyKretts I don't mind the term, I just find that 90% of the people who say 'tech stack' to me want to be seen to be talking technical stuff with a techie. 'What are we using?' seems to work for most other engineers.
