I'm always way too safe with my time scheduling. I'm right outside the building for a meeting 20-ish minutes before my 5-10 minutes early time I like to do1
Lol I remember deleting half a production database 6 months into this job. Now a little under 2 years my boss lets me do whatever the fuck I want as long as my quality of work stays high and I complete a regular number of jira tasks a week4
!dev. Tried streaming today. Was gonna download the file after rather than record at same time
Forgot to turn that setting on. Sooo... Guess I'm not getting my first video saved lol oops2
I feel stupid when I have trouble calculating how big a UPS I need to keep my NAS from just dying during a power outage instead of safely powering off
Then I just dont bother getting one... and get pissed off next time it happens and the cycle continues
Now I have other stuff I'd want to get a UPS for too and the math is even worse for my tiny brain3
!dev. Test/Fixing this monster because my dad's mother refuses to use a newer laptop even if i just give it to her.6
Company paid 1,500 usd per laptop (dell somethings) for them to just be azure access clients
We can't use outlook or teams. Or even IDEs on them to take advantage of the really good cpu and ram. We have to use the OTHER company device for that stuff
Ohhh and all our azure stuff is getting mac restricted so only the new laptops can access so basically forced to jump back and forth all damn day
Sometimes I feel companies enjoy wasting money3
My headset died today. Do you think "it's shipping" is a good enough reason to skip Mondays teams meeting or do I need to go find my cheapo spare headset from my attic3
kinda sick of my friends giving me super basic advice when I mention my mess of 3d printer files
'group similar things together'
'have folders for main projects with nested sub projects'
'put the slicer project file with the stl files for the specific model'
I'm not fucking 5 I've lived long enough to have some level of basic common sense.
Worst part is they forget we've had this conversation and next time I even mention my files they bring up the exact same fucking comments EVERY damn time8
Starting to feel burnt out. Past 2 days have been a struggle to be productive. And it's been a week since I've bothered turning on my 3d printers to try and make anything fun or even just tinker
Once my manager is back I'm gonna request a week off for the soonest he'll approve. Hopefully that'll help. Probably will just video game and read that week lol
Another department doesn't pass along the files mine needs until 3 days after they were supposed to and us reminding them 3 days in a row
Lead of that same department writes an email saying we promised a week turn around on our side and the files have been in house for a week so they're expecting finalization to be done today for ALL the files : |
Welp me and my manager speed run things and get half done today and we'll finish the other half Monday. If they really wanted all of them we wouldn't have gotten access so late to do our part2
!dev. Been working on a simple and 'cheap-ish' enclosure for my resin printer to evacuate fumes out a window. 100% not the best or cleanest looking method but I like it. I don't usually do things with my own two hands so this was kinda fun. Probably will do a V2 in the future with my brother teaching me to do more hands on skills. And a MUCH cleaner end result. This was him telling me what i needed to do and me figuring out the how on my own lol
Now to finish v1 I just gotta put the fan controller outside where I can physically touch it. Cut holes for its wires. Then foam anywhere that stick on door foam didn't work that air can escape. Ohhh and attach the actual duct and window parts
First 2 prints with the Anycubic Photon D2. Has gone easy enough. Need to figure out a better curing system than sitting them outside in a box. Might just get a curing station to sit in my room lol3
Impulse bought a new toy. Wish me luck, lol
First impression is that it's IMMENSELY quieter than my 2 FDM printers4
You ever spend a few weeks on a problem. Make little headway on it then get distracted and forget about it for 2 months only to comeback and fix/finish the entire thing in a handful of hours.
That was me today. Could not get something to work back in March. Didn't touch it till today. And just magically I knew what I was doing wrong before6
Agreed to help out these 2 guys on a minecraft mod pack idea they had... stipulated this is a side project for me and I'm not going to dedicate too much time to it. They were fine with that
Fast forward a few months main 'idea guy' loses his job so spends more time on the pack and starts hounding me for progress and updates and throwing more and more things for me to do. He's also getting progressively angrier at my lack of substantial progress
Like fuck dude i told you this is s fucking side project to me. I'll work on it when I fucking want to. Hell I'm one more shouting match away from telling him to fuck off and find some other dumbass to be the only programmer in this group and get ignored when it comes to fucking anything else
Their idea of 'source control' is a fucking multi Mc instance that gets shared by the main guy every time HE changes anything. Any scripts or configuration edits I do I need to walk him through so he can update that instance
No clue why I put up with it so long. Maybe because other guy was a cool friend back in college. But at this point they both can fuck off6
Trying to explain functions to my coworker and why they should be used even if powershell scrips don't 'need' functions
I've explained it 5 different ways across multiple meetings when they've gotten stuck on something.
At this point I've decided 1. I don't have the patience or brains to be a teacher..., 2. I'm going to have to review every script they ever fucking write, 3. I'm never letting them work on anything critical or time sensitive for big clients. (Small clients ehhh) I'll fight my boss to avoid that headache lol7
My coworker claimed to have experience with R programming on their resume.
Now I don't know R myself but I'm pretty sure what actually happened was they were handed an R program and told how to run it...
Cause they doesn't use functions without being told to, I've had to explain global vs local variables multiple fucking time, and the worst fucking offense in my opinion
THEY DOESN"T READ FUCKING ERROR MESSAGES, so many times there's been an issue in the scripts and when I go to look at what's wrong it's 3 fucking lines down from what they fucking screenshot and spam me on teams with5
Tried 4 times to move the 'data disk' on home assistant to the ssd restoring my backup.
This last time I let it run for 5 days and it didn't fucking work
Decided to just say fuck it, reinstalled home assistant to the yellow, did NOT restore backup, and the move to data disk took 5 fucking minutes : |
After that I restored my backup which took only another 5 minutes and now everything is just working. really wish the instructions suggested moving the data disk before restoring so I wouldn't have wasted my fucking time.
Like fuck am I the only one who had this issue?
Helped my friend setup a modded minecraft server, spent all night playing and forgot to sleep, gotta log into work in 3.5 hours... oops lol2
I saw a thing was already define on the front-end and just went ahead and assigned it to the necessary orgs
Few hours later our process for that thing failed on 3/4 instances. The last I already setup a couple weeks ago for testing. Turns out there's 2 things with really similar names on those instances so when I decided to not fucking check, the wanted thing was never defined so it couldn't process
Welp I'm messaging my boss tomorrow morning to see how bad this is, then unassigning the existing thing before defining the correct one
Fucking hell why did I not verify the definition. Would've taken less than 30 fucking seconds for all instances. Thankfully this is still technically in testing. But fuck I'm pissed at myself2
What was supposed to be a simple HDD to SSD upgrade for my brother ended up taking 3 fucking days.
His computer's idle temp was fucking 90c because of fucking YEARS worth of dust preventing fans from breathing, one of them was even dead so I had to go to best buy to get a new one.
Had a power outage happen in the middle of cleaning the damn dust out before replacing the bad fan. It took close to 24 hours for it to come back, and I just didn't bother until the day after cause fuck that.
When I go back to it, I finish cleaning the dust, clone the old HDD to the new SSD, do the swap out, replace the thermal paste on CPU cause why the fuck not at this point. Then turn it on to test, yeah from 90c down to 20c : |
Yeah... so I charged him for the new fan, and the hour-ish it took me to clean the damn dust and replace the fan... (drive was agreed to be done for free as a favor) Yeah not really worth charging for but I was pissed and that was the 'nicest' way I could show how annoyed I was with him not properly caring for the PC. Like honestly 90 degrees celsius. I refuse to believe he didn't notice impacted performance in his games7
236 lines of code in main doing like 400 things that should each be their own function DX
Fucking legacy projects
This is why I drink on the weekends4
Really vague because of NDA bleh
For the first time since I started this job back in September 2021 none of the daily low-priority automation scripts for my department are broken. : D I was logged on an extra half hour yesterday to fix the last one, but I feel accomplished since I fixed many of them without assistance in the past few months. As apposed to how I asked questions regarding everything in my first few.
Let's see how long until something breaks due to changes outside of our control.
But until then I got harder tasks to focus1
contemplating making this really simple regex stop matching dates after year 2999 just cause I think it might be funny and ruin someone's day for a few minutes long after I'm dead.16
The count returns 19, my if statement is looking for anything greater than 0. Sitting here wondering why it's not working for 3 damn minutes then I remember this (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/...)
I can't do $variable.count > 0
I have to do $varibale.count -gt 0
: | I like powershell, it's useful for simple small things in windows
Then things like this make me wish I wasn't on windows for work
Happens every damn time, especially after working with any other language we use, i just forget PowerShell likes to be 'special'
My career is going well. I was really prepared for a small inconsequential raise. But my manager literally doubled what I was expecting (was expecting just inflation match). Awesome 😆 now time to rapidly build a real proper emergency fund and my savings faster than ever2
First annual review went really well, My manager wants to take some of the tedious day to day stuff I really hate doing, off of my tasks (onto the newest person) so that I can focus on the parts of the job I like, figuring out the technical side of the job, and improving legacy code to ACTUALLY work well, and automating the most time consuming parts of the job that really shouldn't be manual in the first place.
