Here's to clients who wish to pay "per project" instead of "per month". Man, fuck that.
Back when I was still a novice, I took on a couple of small time projects from clients who contacted me after looking at my GitHub, and they all wanted to pay me a lump-sum for the project. Because I'm an idiot, I thought sure, what difference would that make. Boy was I wrong.
What followed was me finishing the projects well before time but because of the clients' constant reiterations and changes in design and nitpicking every decision I made while creating the websites for them, the projects dragged on for weeks longer than they were originally intended. And I fucking got paid that one-time amount in the beginning. All this maintenance, for free. Even though I had not explicitly agreed to the maintenance part, since they never finalized the specifications of the project, it just never got "done" officially, and all the maintenance part just came under development.
How many different kinds of disgusting does someone have to be to do this? I should've fucking said NO to those terms, but I had to have experience. Well, nice experience that was. Never again. :(1
Tried mining ethereum today. Just wanted to check that out, for the heck of it. Fired off a p3.16xlarge instance on AWS, 4 x Tesla V100 running at $12 an hour! It was an absolute beast. Anyway, kept it running for 9 hours and earned about $5 before shutting it down. Cost me $108 to earn that $5. Had a lot of credits expiring in a couple of days, so I wanted to burn them off anyway.
So crypto mining, not easy money.7
I'm a junior developer in a small company alongside with a fellow programmer. Since I have an interest in Security and our Sys Admin left, my boss offered me to do some sys admin stuff.
I feel bad for my fellow programmer just because there is an old man in the company that doesn't come to me with his tech problems and goes to him.
Something like this goes down today:
OM: Hey, I can't watch my Fox Live News. Can you help me?
FP: The problem isn't on our side
*OM keeps pestering him*
FP: Let me check it out
*Goes and fix the issue and comes back laughing *
My coworker is to kind 😬😂😅2
Here is a little review, this is more of a personal review, I wanted to make it more professional but it was the first thing I did when I got up after playing on DevRant lol so brain has not yet woken up.
I invite @dfox and @trogus to read it and anyone else who would like to view it.
Foreach (DevrantUser user in devRantUsers)
Bool hundredPlusPlus = false;
While (user.hundredPlusPlus == false)
Rant myRant = new Rant(awesomeness);
If(myRant.plusPlus >= 100)
hundredPlusPlus = true;
