Don't you just hate *silly* password restrictions? Surely there is a very limited number of possibile passwords
On top of this their "password prompt" says passwords are between 6 and 10 characters...1
You've tried everything.... Jenkins still corrupts svn checkouts on every build, and hence fails the build....
Solution.... Promote a slave to be a new master, and demote the master to be a slave....
Start the weekend looking forward to making good progress on home projects, only to find something unrelated which stops you doing a project, by the time that's resolved you have lost the will to spend more time at the computer..... How do you get past it?4
Get to work, I'm going to have a really productive day tackling problem X. What do you mean Jenkins decided to corrupt every local SVN checkout? Spent the day getting Jenkins back on its feet and trying to figure out why it hated last night. Tomorrow... I'm going to have a really productive day tackling problem X...
PM, we are going to go to an agile methodology for working. (despite PM having never done agile, and most of the team having never done agile) But we will have 4 week sprints, as 2 week sprints are too short. We are going to have daily stand ups, oh but we'll only have then once a week... And we will keep the 3 hour mid week meeting. Oh and we'll keep our existing JIRA, but you also need to use *new* JIRA as well, but that's going to the customer so don't post bugs on it.... (all with a ln important delivery in a few months) The suggestion of getting an adviser (either internal or external) who has experience with agile to help us transition smoothly and provide best practice got shot down. feels like the blind leading the blind...2
Work Pc is windows xp.... Dev board requires a Linux tool chain... The PC falls over trying to run a VM, so end up needing to run a VM on our CI server (beefiest bit of kit I have access to) , I have to deal with laggy eclipse, over RDP to the VM. On top of that the dev board comes with around 10k pages of documentation.... Most of which either doesn't work, or is missing vital bits of information.... Oh and PM has promised a working product to customers in less than 3 months l, despite us not actually managing to get the desired platform to even boot correctly yet.... *screams *2
Out company standard tools, which we are all supposed to use... (JIRA, confluence) .... IT had blacklisted docs.atlassian.....2
