Wrap anything more than two lines into another function. Reading such code makes your brain stack overflow.
I’ve met several...1
Ranting too much on Windows updates comes with karma.
(I know, I guess it’s about time to clean its screen)12
It’s happening.. started to see Solidity listed as programming language skill on resumé, next to C++..2
Yet another Windows rant but boi Redmond deserves it.
For our new office I took a leap of faith ordering 15 iMac 5k. (btw HP quoting us €10k each pc for same spec).
There are two young guys insist on Windows. Good for you so we ordered two top of line surface book. He religiously unwrapped and said “who want apple trash more than this beauty.”
It’s been 5 hours that shit spent on “Getting Ready Windows for you”, once done it prompted another updating at 4% until we all left work.
So this morning I’m ordering another two MBPs...13
My business partner who claim to be the best Wall Street programmer, probably 160 years ago, decided to improve our core system written in Go.
He dragged a *shortcut* of *whole* local github folder into Vendor(sort of node_modules), Manually changed commit hash in Gopkg.lock, etc,
Next morning I woke up to 24 failed builds on Master; all protobuf redone with his unknown gogo version, database trigger function with changed logics added parameters, and a text message “has anyone experienced build corruption? Works on my mac”
My other business partners said “it’s okay, He’s going through tough divorce needs some distraction”

Just found out with client, a recruiter played double agent, charged 25% on me and 20% on client, a whopping 45% commission! Fuck off.
Thankfully it’s only a small project. We are both hiring dev soon so he lost a good chunk of business, at least from me, for perpetuity.1
Lovely Sunday here, yet Windows decided to Fall a Creator update up in my PC.
3 hours jamming internet of whole house;
1 hour Preparing installation at 100%;
30 minutes spent on turning off new bloatware icons and silently changed settings;
Several dev tools stopped working, gave up;
Tried to play games they all stuttering;
Fall back to League of Lesbians and oh boi 792 almighty ping;
Well done! Microsoft.1
Manager said we need to use Queue. Several meetings after then I looked at prototype by 6 senior devs:
A QueueListener connects to RabbitMQ check for payload then *disconnects*;
A TaskProvider in ASP.Net.MVC.Core(whatever it is) listening http and dependency inject that QueuePoller;
A Visual Cron timer calls that http url every 5 minutes.
Wait for it: a set of database tables to store messages for another MessageProcessor.
It’s a XML to CSV file conversion project consists of 43 unique projects under a solution. I did it within 500 lines of Node with ElasticSearch and told we don’t use fancy new stuffs here.1
This place I’m consulting at just had a new Directory of Change, first policy she made for IT is mandatory 3 working days wait for any release in Test and 2 weeks for Prod. That includes application config value update in Test database. We think she might have misunderstood her job title Ms. Director of No Change..2
