I hate clients that tell the developers what to use without discussion.
We're paid to solve problems.
Dictatorship on tools and methodologies are okay with junior devs or interns, but when you have senior devs, it has to be a democracy.
Having limitations like browser versions or server capabilities are fine, but declaring which slider to use, you MUST use jquery, or all that jazz just grinds my gears.5
Company: our team is like a family, everyone is valued and respected
Reality: We have a predefined power structure that will not be challenged no matter what. This is not a democracy, it's a dictatorship.4
i rant that i live in a dictatorship with an idiot president who bans whatsapp and facebook to prevent protests (in reaction to having arrested opposition party members of parliament), and github (yes, github) to prevent the spread of a minister's leaked e-mails. now the government is seriously considering shutting down vpn services to prevent by-passing the bans.
on the other hand, it's a nice time and place to continue ms studies on ad-hoc networks - that is of course if i can avoid being arrested or killed before i even start my thesis.10

Don’t have much to do right before Xmas, so I started learning game theory. Jeez, it’s so easy to create dictatorship in voting🤔

Since a month or so ago all new employees have Windows 10 on their laptops. When I asked the IT administrator if after months of asking him that means I can finally upgrade my company laptop, he said “We’ve had problems with the install so everyone who’s on Windows 7 will stay on W7.” Isn’t that his job though, solving problems?2
