Bashing my head against bash as I attempt to get our install process to _not_ secure erase the drive I have data on... It is turning out to be more difficult than it should be...

Yesterday I got in my Linux workstation parts and put it all together!

More like a "we don't test this very often so don't automate it because we're not gonna waste time on it"


Not a reason, IMO. If it's something that can break it should be tested. If you don't test it often, that's more reason to automate it, not less.

Quote

or "we don't know how to interface with this and we're too busy to figure it out" kinda deal, like verifying documents. \_(ツ)_/


Again, that's a really good reason to figure out how to automate it in my book.

So we have like 60 CRT monitors to get rid of. Azathoth just sent an email out to everyone in the company saying anyone is welcome to take as many as they want home.

Three people have asked me, "what's a CRT monitor?"

And everyone's talking about it. No one knows what a CRT monitor is apparently.

I feel old.

Next time someone asks me I'm gonna tell em it's a monitor that was common in the previous millenium but which has been phased out in the modern era.

HA!!!!


We needed to test an old fax line, and the CIO brought in an old landline phone, with cord. One of our devs asked what it was!!! The plight of the younger generation!


Similar thing when I was talking with a dev about a BBS I ran back in the early 90s. The well never know the significance of 14.4, 28.8 or 56.6 or that it used to take an hour to down a single image way back when and nobody could call you while you were doing it.

I think you mistook my posts. It's not that we don't test it, just not that often because it comes from another team/app. Our app is tier-1 and is dependent on a lot of others. When you only have x number of testers and the work requires x+2 testers, it's kinda hard to spend time on something that "doesn't pass cards" per se. They need them numbers.

I've spent my entire morning thus far arguing with my mother via Facebook Messenger about my parenting practices because I "allowed" by almost 16-year-old to repost an image that contained .... *dun-dun-dun* .... the f-word. *Gasp!* *Sigh!* *Faint!*

She's MY fucking kid. I'm pretty fucking sure she's heard the fucking word before. FUCK!

Discovered this morning that I have a tight deadline of 1 week to get a massive API converted over to use MongoDB, the tech that I started learning Monday. Ahh isn't the whole sector fun!

Today I will be focusing on more advanced queries, like aggregate and lookups. Started the conversion, the biggest issue I am running into is the document collections are not all there OR they don't have sample data. Discovered an issue yesterday with some provided sample data in which the object _id was truncated. Had me scratching my head when my query returned absolutely nothing, when I knew it should have been!

I contemplated responding to that pic with "well it is HER kid, I'm sure she's heard that word 1000/day her whole life", but decided not to because it was technically on said kid's timeline and I didn't wanna start crap with your fam.

The end result of the PM battle went down like this:

Me: "As her mother, I am far more proud of her support for socialized healthcare than I am concerned that she shared an image containing the dreaded f-word."

Mom: "I just won't comment on anything anywhere ever anymore since that's how you want to be."

Then she deleted her comment on my kid's post and is refusing to speak to me.

Whatevs, fam.

Working on figuring out AWS for the moment. Cutting my current server down in specs and starting to move some key accounts over. It is an interesting process to say the least.
