3 person help desk shop for 450 users. One of my tasks is procurement.
Customer: we need a portable monitor that takes up less desk space than the one you typically have us buy
Me: at the conference last week we displayed the upgraded model of that portable monitor which takes up half the desk space. It’s $250 instead of the $150 that you normally would pay.
Customer: that ones too expensive, find me something else.
Me: unfortunately not too many companies make portable monitors and since AOC is unreliable in quality we have been recommending Asus, who only makes those two models that I’ve shown you.
Customer: I want the AOC one anyways. You shouldn’t have shown the more expensive one because now my staff want it and I can’t get it. If everyone can’t afford it you shouldn’t have it available.
Me: I understand your frustration, we have recommended that more expensive one as an option for people who have special accommodations for eye care and as an alternative if people dislike the current model. Since it’s not required that you purchase it and since we do have a much less expensive option we will continue to recommend it. As for the AOC one we will allow you to purchase it but will not be supporting or repairing it.
Customer: Can we get this instead? *sends link to $989 pre tax off brand version of Razer Project Valeria*5
Missed launch of Advent of code yesterday and so no score for me but.
I have started 1 hour ago and all 2 days finished in that 1 hour in fucking C.
And yes i will try to finish entire AoC in C. Crazy ? Possibly, Dont know yet.
But if the inputs dont go crazy and i dont have to parse them in some weird method then i think it will be fine.
Also just look at the sub reddit. The languages people solve this in is crazy. Rockstar. Thats language where you write a fucking poem as code. Jeeez. One guy did it in UE4.
My classmates say im crazy. This is beyond me.8
I probably chose the worst language to do AoC in. C jeez.
Day 3 is a pain cause i gave myself to only use stdio and math .h and day 1,2 were fine. Day 3 i had to create well better show you.
Horrible i know but i didnt fine better solution to it.
Oh if you have better solution dont forget to paste the github link here.18
AoC day 5.
Fuck no. No. No. No
You can write that in python. Im not doing that in C.
I mean i will try and most surely fail i think.6
AoC day 4.
This one will be a good one. Probably could write the code in few minutes but have school sadly so nope thats not happening.7
Fucking hell. The day i go to work then we get the probably easiest AoC day so far.
Would fucking get to leaderboard for sure. But well i cant use laptop in work or anything so yeah. Fuck !4
Fucking hell i just realized AoC day 2, 5 and the opcode in it is real fucking functional piece of code that really exists. WAT ?
Wait did i just fucking write compiler ? YES i fucking did. Holy F.2
Advent of code day 11 done. And holy shit this was a very very nice one. I was slow to this one. (Noooo i totally didnt overslept and came late to school at 9am. Noooo)
And well at first i thought this will be a hard one again but no. It was actually quite easy when you figure out what needs to be done.
And the story about the AoC is just wonderful. I mean WOW.
Day 11 was basically "Space police stopped you when you are on your way to jupiter and you dont have license plate on your ship" and you basically have to generate it from the program for your intcode VM you have created for earlier levels. Then output each pixel in grid and boom.1
