Got my tax return and am upgrading the ram in my PC from 8GB to 24GB. Can't wait to run even more tabs in Chrome!8
In the land of Kangaroos you can claim education expenses directly related to your profession on your tax return. I am developing a plug-in for X-Plane. Do you guys think I can claim costs of my flying school as "education to better understand flight characteristics so that my plug-in works better"?
For anyone who's interested, I'm building a six pack using round LCD displays and an Arduino9
devRant help me!
I'm getting a lovely little tax return and am in the middle on what laptop to buy.
MacBook Pro (I like MacOS and build quality, fight me)
PixelBook (I'm a google fanboy and love ChromeOS so once again... Fight me)
What do you think would be the best option keeping in mind the PixelBook will run Linux apps as well...19

Overall, pretty good actually compared to the alternatives, which is why there's so much competition for dev jobs.
On the nastier end of things you have the outsourcing pools, companies which regularly try to outbid each other to get a contract from an external (usually foreign) company at the lowest price possible. These folks are underpaid and overworked with absolutely terrible work culture, but there are many, many worse things they could be doing in terms of effort vs monetary return (personal experience: equally experienced animator has more work and is paid less). And forget everything about focus on quality and personal development, these companies are here to make quick money by just somehow doing what the client wants, I'm guessing quite a few of you have experienced that :p
Startups are a mixed bag, like they are pretty much everywhere in the world. You have the income tax fronts which have zero work, the slave driver bossman ones, the dumpster fires; but also really good ones with secure funding, nice management, and cool work culture (and cool work, some of my friends work at robotics startups and they do some pretty heavy shit).
Government agencies are also a mixed bag, they're secure with low-ish pay but usually don't have much or very exciting work, and the stuff they turn out is usually sub-par because of bad management and no drive from higher-ups.
Big corporates are pretty cool, they pay very well, have meaningful(?) work, and good work culture, and they're better managed in general than the other categories. A lot of people aim for these because of the pay, stability, networking, and resume building. Some people also use them as stepping stones to apply for courses abroad.
Research work is pretty disappointing overall, the projects here usually lack some combination of funding, facilities, and ambition; but occasionally you come across people doing really cool stuff so eh.
There's a fair amount of competition for all of these categories, so students spend an inordinate amount of time on stuff like competitive programming which a lot of companies use for hiring because of the volume of candidates.
All this is from my experience and my friends', YMMV.1
What piece of shit coded this site?
This is website people who did not file a tax return can use to get their stimulus check.
It’s not mobile friendly or even responsive in the least bit.
These people are poor and desperate and do you think they have laptop or desktops? No they use their phones.
You could have added some Flex box, now people are freaking out all over the internet.
Who the fuck would do this also this?5
not a rant.
More coronavirus doomporn so click away now if you're sicking of reading and hearing about it.
As I wrote to sweetnothings and Demolishun over here https://devrant.com/rants/2476697/...
Looting already started in my area.
Store was robbed in broad daylight after it was broken into just a few days ago.
And when the next surge of stimulus money hits people are gonna be like "I better stock up seeing as the shelves are kinda empty."
And then the shelves are gonna empty *quick*.
And people will see that and empty them *even faster*.
And then even faster than *that*, in a vicious cycle.
At some point people might panic and proper looting could begin.
Got my tax return before any stimulus so I took the time to go shopping.
Of course I didn't buy up all of any one item. Don't know why people feel like they need to do that.
Why wouldn't you want a variety of supplies anyway?
Gravy for example. No one can get any meat. Saw that coming a month ago.
If you're just buying for bulk, packet gravy is nice for things like pasta and staples like rice and potatoes.
Little things go a long way.
And salt. Salt is cheap now. Probably will remain cheap, but expect panicking buying to make supply spotty, like
I expect these shortages to last 2-4 weeks, excluding things like dairy and meat which *could* go on longer.2
