Update to previous post:
Guy got fired, but I didn't get to see it. I've been sick with a flu and in bed.
Apparently he got mouthy at his boss and was flatly told that he will never receive a recommendation from their company and that of he continues to harass his employees he will make sure he doesn't work in tech again.
I wish I had seen it, if only just to say I had. Would have loved to see him buy into bossman's bluff.
The other half is relieved. I hate workplace drama.6
Junior dev who thinks he's hot shit decides to call me a dyke because he didn't like my code review.
Told him his wife enjoys calling me daddy.
He went pale and asked how I knew he was married. He wears no visible ring. I just smiled. "My dyke powers told me so."
He's since been weirdly docile around me, and I am okay with this.
His code still hasn't passed review even after he swore it was just me having a 'power trip'. His boss also rejected the code and probably heard what happened.
I hate working on-site for clients.18
So, remember that company that told me that security was secondary on their payment system?
They got fined out of existence. Just before, they wanted to 'renegotiate' with me on the proposal I had prepared for them.
Told them I'd happily do it, but that they would still likely go out of business 'cause they decided security wasn't worth it, and will have to pay the fines they're currently accruing, plus the legal expenses.
tl;dr that company got fucked and I'm okay with this.3
Started talk on a contract to build out a web payments portal, and ended up with a security contract instead. After initial probing, which I do to all prospective clients, I told them I would not work with a company that is as insecure as them.
They hired me for analysis and now want me to make them a plan.
They also fired their entire security division for not doing their job.
What the fuck is 2020 turning into...12
Is there a native way to mute or otherwise hide certain tags? For example, I want to never see the junk posted as joke/meme.
So far I see no way to do this and it is frustrating as fuck.5
The look on a client's face when they realised that I program[med] sex toys for a living was pretty priceless.
Their attitude change, however, cost them a contract. Programming sex toys is no different from programming anything else.
Why do you have to bring in your religious views or my previous contracts into the conversation? All I'm doing is a network audit for your company. I'm not gonna hide a dildo in your closet, or something. I'm supposed to only be around for a few days, too.
Guess I had too many cooties, with how harsh they burnt that contract and bridge.
I have an important meeting tomorrow and my sleeping has been completely upside down.
It's 5am and I am gonna try to crash til noon or something... That will mostly fix it.
But I just know I won't fall asleep because my brain is stuck on the programming issues I've been working on.
And if I sleep any longer than that, I'm super fucked...6
Awesome wife accountant person notified me she is closing the business pending divorce. Apparently boss man didn't like an actionable woman after all.
So I've registered my own business and will go this new route.
What a strange ride the last week has been.
I suppose this is an expected conclusion, though I thought she'd initiate the divorce.
Oh well, not my problem!
I cannot wait for the fireworks to stop. People are loud enough with their partying, and at least shitty music and loud talking doesn't set off my panic and anxiety.
All I want to do is program, not vomit my guts out from anxiety.9
Update: The accountant (wife) restored the database herself.
She also plans to fire the incompetent ones.
What a pleasant twist.13
It's Monday morning and they still haven't restored the database.
They said they couldn't find the procedures. They all have a copy: I wrote the documentation myself.
My boss tried to cover for them but deleting the docs. They are under version control you idiots.
Time to search for a new job. This incompetence is going to be the death of me.27
Sorry, but this is my day off. Maybe you shouldn't have let junior run queries on the production database.
He didn't have access for a reason, fucknuts.10
