i hate asking for help when i run into problems with software I'm writing build tooling for. it makes me feel like i shouldn't be on the team, which is frustrating because i joined as a ruby build engineer walking into a java/gradle shop and i'm pretty much forever doomed to be lost

with no GUI

I'm setting up some build agents for a client's CI system, and I gotta tell y'all

after years of having to have a windowing system present to run software tests, there is NOTHING as satisfying as unchecking all the GUI options when you're installing a VM

and I really mean it, I don't think I've ever felt this kind of petty satisfaction, ever

take that, past me

the BEST part (read: THE WORST) is that, underneath it all, it's calling ACTUAL BASH SCRIPTS

seeing a package.json file, i believed this software was written in Javascript, but what a FOOL i am, how NAIVE i must be to belive that! for this software, this software uses ONE JAVASCRIPT BASH REPLACEMENT AND IS OTHERWISE ENTIRELY WRITTEN IN PHP

i don't know who needs to hear this, but when someone says business things should be people-driven and focus on solving genuine problems, they're dunking on your skunkworks team trying to use AI to make your sales team the best coffee possible, because you want your sales team to spend less time brewing coffee

twitter hack investigation i've just facepalmed through my skull, excuse me for a moment while i notify loved ones of my recent demise

There's a reason I don't put any "real" personal info on here, and it's because I seem to have the weirdest fucking problems with everything and I don't want people to think that they'll ever have the same issues with the orgs I interact with. They won't, I just do, probably because I was cursed or something

big fat - 

so apparently my first paycheck is in the mail, shipped last friday, but it has Not Yet Arrived and i am getting Very Angery

Thinking of leveraging OOP to organize your code? Forget that, toss everything into a single directory. Good luck, archaeologists!

pets, scary 

the local animal emergency hospital has, by my estimation, killed 5 pets in the last 3 weeks based on their Google reviews. but whenever something happens with my ferrets, my vet refers them there.

I think it might be time to find a new vet 🤔
