  1. In Topic: Career Advice for someone who has lost all interest...

    I've decided to look for another job; to try to find one that will be less stressful and more fulfilling. Do jobs like this exist? Because it seems that every programming job that pays anything half-decent, seems to be them having a huge problem and looking for a programmer to throw at it. I don't want a bigger headache. And I don't want to be stuck at my desk for the rest of my life. Maybe a tech position that isn't in a production environment, centered more on talking with people than being a code monkey? Has anyone found a career path like this? And if so, have you found it as rewarding as you thought it would be?



    Have you looked into being a BA, Project Manager, or Implementation specialist? Any of those roles will get you interacting with people and out from behind a desk from time to time. My last company, the Project Managers and Implementation guys would go on site to clients all the time, or they would be in face to face meetings. I'd say only 20% of their job was really sitting behind a desk.

    I have been playing the shit out of RimWorld. I'm doing a survival type setting where I put myself in the middle of the desert. It's been a real blast trying to survive with no real wood source. Also, the modding is fantastic, I've been able to add enough to the game to keep it interesting.

    I've also been doing some Cities: Skylines, which I find is a better city builder than SimCity 4.

    I'm writing custom JSON Parsers because the 3rd party doesn't like to send me proper JSON. Their spec says a specific field is an Array, but they can send a single in it so I have to setup a custom parser to handle that.

    Check the remote proc trans option to make sure it's off. That error is usually given when a snapshot is attempted when the remote proc trans option is on.

    This will disallow the ability to run remote procedure calls. If you have any of those then you'll want to redo them to use linked servers, as starting in SQL Server 2012 remote proc trans is no longer even an option.

    I'm playing pac-man all over the world... because I can. Google has put out a thing where you can play pac-man on google maps. I'm also working on more of my project, but only between rounds. Priorities and all.

    Hey, congrats on the review/raise! Been offline a few days and just now reading through the threads. I've got a 90 day evaluation later this afternoon myself.
