Earlier today did I say, "Okay Google, set a timer for 1 hour," to remind myself to check if the build is done? Yes, yes I did.

Shawn

NOT what you want to hear at ...
"So, how much did we lose then?"
"About a week."

Shawn

Co-workers are talking about/planning to go to a Bollywood dance party.

Shawn

... And work has lost power. Boy, didn't take long for everyone to clear out.

Shawn

Software developers, much like Nature, always find a way.

Shawn

Feeling pretty good: Back on an interesting project as the main developer. The lead architect doesn't really see much of anything he wants to change with my design. is good :-)

Shawn

Sometimes you just need to step away from the code and write some documentation as a palate cleanser.

Shawn

OH at : "One of the two lightsabers I own..."

Shawn

Abusing the "agility" in Agile development: "I know you're already past deadline, but here's an entirely new page we want to add."

Shawn

Never, ever. EVER. Trust that generated code even runs.
Verify, verify, verify.

Shawn

OH from new co-worker: "... all these hoops to jump through. It's just not my style, you know?"

>_<

Shawn

I love how Internet Explorer hangs the first time I open it. Every. Time.
>_<

Shawn

Mgr: "I think I get what you're saying now - it's all about the team"

YES!! :-)

Shawn

Still no Internet at . We're dead in the water.

Shawn

Got back from lunch to an office w/o power. Everyone is on their phones.

Shawn

Work follies:
Last week: "3 course meal Chef Challenge between depts!"
This week: "Oh, there's no stove/oven available."
o.O

Shawn

Scrum Master keeps asking if the numbers recorded for my work look correct. I have no idea. That's why I record them.

Shawn

When management sends back the User Stories w/ all the points cut in half: >_< No. That's not how it works.

Shawn

So, work just announced a "Master Chef Challenge" between the departments. Gawds, I love working here!
