when someone not familiar with this line of work asks me what i do as a software engineer i always think of Kelzo on career day youtu.be/TdqRqRXeS-Q?t=148

@HerraBRE yeah that's what bothers me too. do what ever you want with your body, i don't care. but herd immunity is a thing and you are endangering *everybody* by being antivaxx

@andrioid when the coffee machine was broken the last time it took a week to be fixed. people turned into zombies and there was a riot. so yeah, get a contingency plan people

each time i answer a technical question about some detail in an area i am the designated "expert" i question myself and i am always unsure if i am not talking crap.
how do you deal with this?

imposter syndrome is strong the last few weeks. let's see if i get used to it

i'll have to look at ghidra a little more. the few minutes i spent with it i was positively impressed

@ischade don't be. i agreed with the boss on a deadline, if until then it doesn't get better i'll leave the company. so either way in a few months everything will be better

@ischade it's looking at very old legacy swamps of monoliths to find out how it currently works cause nobody knows and there is no documentation (or the docs lie).
this is done to add things to those swamps instead of breaking the new feature out into it's own thing, like the whole company agreed on. but it never happens.

that's why it's bad in my case. otherwise i would agree with you

5% of my time at work is actually doing stuff and getting things done. the rest is meetings and analyzing existing implementations. not a happy place currently

factorio is eating my time again. 0.17 is great

i am usually no electron fan, but vscode continues to impress me

just discovered there is zen mode in vscode. pretty cool feature

@SuperFloppies @trickster doesn't help cause most software doesn't use those. only changing software i can change isn't enough

@trickster it's tricky stuff. turning that on is systemwide, and apparently it breaks tons of stuff
