Last day of my job tomorrow, looking forward to the challenges of the next one and wondering what's the first thing I'll be ranting about.1
Support Team Member opened a ticket.

Load image, it's white and transparent on a white page.
Got bought these by our CEO today as a way of him saying thank you. Means a lot to get such recognition from someone you look up to.13
Spent a good 7 minutes wondering what 18. Ago was in a date field.

Turns out a server restart had killed the job (no worries there, surely?!) but turns out the job checked for a system flag on disk to stop it running multiple instance or in this case as the flag was still present any instance at all. Got to love the little things that really screw you over.6

Anyone know what the fucking outcome of clicking either these buttons is going to be? The button I clicked to get to this modal said "Buy Season £7.49"3
Can you add a feature so we can download images that our customers have uploaded?
Yeah sure I can see that being a really handy feature, but until I have the time to add a button would you try right clicking on the picture and using the option "Save image...." 🤔4
My trusty ballpoint pen.
It helps me take notes, leaves notes for other team members and is great for prodding people with if I need an update on something and they have headphones in.2
