Today is the day I get to go on a long and deserved vacation!
I came to work at 5.10 am so I can pour a glass of Lagavulin 16yo as early as possible 🤣
Edit: At the moment im a few SQL queries away from the nectar of gods.2
I think im lucky. I have recieved only 3 gdpr related emails.
Am I lucky or is the shitstorm just about to begin? 🤣2
I wanted to add a simple gallery for our website.
I started browsing open source alternatives.
Result: "Depens on jquery, depends on node, depends on bla bla bla... Fuck it... I'l just make one myself."2
Languages I have used this week at work:
PHP, JS, VB6, VB.net, C#.
Im not kidding.
Time to relax with some good ol' beer 🤣8
Jesus H. Christ. It really did happen! Just moved from vb6 to vb.net. My personal opinion, going with C#, was disregarded but im still happy to leave that abomination behind.
The sad part is that I have gotten pretty good with vb6 🍻 A drink to that!
PS. VB.net is supposed to be simple and readable but I disagree. C# Is way more readable and there is this elegance about the syntax. As a side project I am thinking of learning Go and make a simple cms.
My biggest ongoing sin is that I neglect commenting while maintaining a legacy system. No one else has commented anything so why should I? Well I should. I comfort my self with the fact that this legacy system will be replaced with a shiny new well commented one in the near future, which im also working on.
Keeping the clients happy is very important but when you have alot of shit to do, being a glorified helpdesk bugs me the fuck out. My inbox is screaming at me: "Please no more... Master please end me!".
I teach the AI to code and after that I mentor it.
Just a matter of time when I amongst all humans become obsolete 😔
My relatives: "Can you fix my computer/ipad/etc..."
Me: "Sure why not. I'l take a look when I have the time"
Lesson: Don't be so arrogant.2
My first job was being a sales clerk. I exel macroed my way to my coworkers hearts. Today im just a simple developer, and I love my job!
