Enterprise: you did not create the user epic for this problem, I can't accept these solutions until you have done this. Please speak with Mike on getting this properly setup. I expect a full report of this by Monday.
Them: but it's Friday...
Enterprise: Get it done. I am not paying your overtime either
There's nothing like a newcomer to the office that's attempting to brown nose the director by saying we should redo the site design because it's too "80's"... I could of swore the Internet wasnt available to the public till 1991...5

I know I'm getting old from small signs like:
- I like mentoring newcomers even fresh graduates, explaining them everything they have to know, answering all of their questions if I can (I had some really bad mentors before as newcomer)
- These newcomers always learns faster than I expect and shortly they works faster than us
- On the other hand senior members asks my opinion about some decisions or technical issues even if I barely know more about that topic. (Did I look experienced somewhat?)
- I hardly take overhours and I discourage fresh graduates to do. (I did enough overnights already in my life)1
Man I couldn't believe, whenever there's a rant of wk100 as a newcomer to devRant I couldn't understand anything, today I understood that this week is wk101.
So I joined devRant at wk100.
The newcomer who is 35 years old starting talking about his previous jobs and he reaches a point where he says exactly this
- IBM’s AS400 is the perfect operating system that ever existed, nothing can surpass it from today’s operating systems.
I nearly screamed at him for so many reasons that I could not even start to explain and kind of blacked out from the overflow so I responded with
Bash on Windows. Why? Good or evil? Thoughts?
Ok so I'm going to throw it out there, I'm a newcomer-ish to both Ubuntu and programming (2nd year CS). I'm using Ubuntu for the OS module. Can I run the C programmes in a "Windows" environment now?3
I'm not a newcomer here, I actually had an account 2 days ago, that I deleted in order to create a new one. I had to start fresh.
Anyway, after a long time of absence (one of the reasons I deleted my previous account), I'm glad I'm back here, and I look forward to discuss interesting topics with this community again!1
