*peeks out from under desk* .... we good? Good. Definitely didn't just delete the company. Cool .. coolcoolcoolcool. I need a drink.

The person writing the text for this dialogue didn't even know if the "Back" button would be enabled when the user read their text. How can that happen??
I get it - domestic printers aren't exactly something companies are willing to invest lots into. But ... surely they can do better than this.
Then after it sits there for a while - clearly illustrating that it did in fact find a printer - it decides that it actually didn't and maybe your electrical outlet doesn't work - or maybe you're actually an idiot didn't realise that it has to be supplied with power *and* turned on.
Then this delightful screen that appears once you have connected a printer but ... I don't know, it doesn't want to talk to it or something?
FUN FACT: the "bystander effect" is bullshit
during the first "studies" done into it, the test subjects knew it was part of an experiment... so that data is completely useless. more recent studies done using actual real scenarios recorded on security cameras show people will nearly always intervene unless there's a danger preventing them from doing so
Doctors don't have to do it. "Provided antibiotics to 100% of patients who needed antibiotics"
"Diagnosed 20% more chronic disease than in the last year"
"Referred 10% of all patients to hospital specialsists"
"Understood the subject area 200% more than a year ago"
"Published 66% more white papers than the same time six years ago"
"Increased office coffee consumption by 33%"
What does it even mean?
Why are you expected to produce metrics about your career in your CV these days? What if your contribution to your company (or society) isn't measurable by a percentage? Works fine for "reduced payroll overheads by 20%" but what am I supposed to say - "Increased machine generated metadata for radio content by 100%?"
Actually I'm not a banana. But I did spend a few moments today updating https://banane.naxx.fish/ to (slightly) more modern standards, to use mastodon instead of Twitter, learning GitHub actions and container registry, VSCode Remote-Containers ... all stuff that seems quite cool but I've not had the opportunity to mess with ! https://github.com/naxxfish/bananae
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
