omfg, this guy. lets run another few 2hr minimum runs, and then when that's done ill want to do it again
how do you not see youre wasting entire days by doing this shit constantly?1
worst interview i think i've had was a looooonnnnggg drawn out, almost half a year, back and forward cluster-fuck of a hassle
so it starts off with this recruiter guy calling me, forgetting he called me and emailing/calling me again... uh ok, w/e. he says he'll set something up and then i have a pre-screening type interview and dont hear back for a bit. reach out and he says he had a medical issue and was in the hospital, yada yada. but i felt like he was just on meth because of where he was at and how he was acting. like wtf
finally get a proper interview and it's with a nice enough team but their job postings were all copy paste garbage and idk if i applied to the wrong thing or they just failed to describe shit properly. so they set me up with a secondary interview with another team more suited to my skills, even though they'd have no problem hiring me. so this is like my 4th interview at this point.
interview for the other team goes well, sounds like what i want. dont hear back for a while. some girl recruiter gets back to me and idk if the other guy left, or got fired, or what the hell. i reach out to the 2nd guy i interviewed and we have another 'interview'. a few months in at this point, looking for another job because i wanted out of where i was at. so 5 or 6 interviews and months later they closed the positions, i guess because of covid bs? supposedly?
i hate going through more than a few interviews in the first place but my god.
ill post another couple in the comments x-x4
had an interview...fuker didnt show up -.-
how you supposed to find a new job when even the recruiters dont gaf4
this guy i swear. he keeps wanting to re-re-re-re-run shit. like man, youve done it a dozen times. what do you think is gona change?8
idk how ppl can get so 'high' in tech to where a good portion of the world relies on your small shit...yet not understand simple logical deps.
so i try to search google for...google/chrome removing ad block plugins
and everything i'm getting is in the tune of 'how do you remove a plugin' and not the big ordeal i keep seeing everywhere right now
o fukin k himler9
dude wtf >_< first google breaks image searches by forcing 'lense' and gives you shit results, at best a fleet of shirts to buy unrelated to wtf you want
now they fuk up android and battery is going crazy on lineage (again). then the fuker just straight disabled my multitask button when i toggled mobile data.
how in the...1
i really hate that almost everything i've done in IT has been grouped into "SRE"
wtf is it? what's the job? well it depends
maybe you'll be working with kubernetes and cloud clusters like AWS, microservice type things
maybe it will be web dev, front end or back end, similar to a full stack position
or hell, you could just be a sys admin with a fancy title
how in the FUCK am i supposed to find a job when you can't -negate -terms or find anything meaningful with a god damn search term or job title???
edit: oh, i missed one -.- you could just be a software engineer. because you know, software reliability engineer i guess2
man the ppl i work with...lets run this! and that! lets run all of this on this! do you even know what you are doing? why do you want to do that it's pointless? this is the 3rd...4th...5th time youve done that, have you completely forgot about doing it?
>_< i just realized the person they fired like last year is still on our website. not directly but the profile is still there...9
just me or did older games have less bugs, more people who knew how code worked. more rigorous shit ig27
seriously? why do ppl bot or make accounts here to spam with ads?
who tf do you think you're fooling? it's a tech oriented site...
good luck, you fuck7
im at my wits end...i dont wana do this crap anymore. idk if i wana do anything rn. im close to selling everything and buying a 1 way somewhere.
going back to corporate sounds like bs, the ppl im dealing with now are just a mix between ignorant, pompous and demeaning. i dont feel like im doing anything and i feel like i have to pull myself together to deal with this stupidity. i have no clue what i'd want to do and idk if that's because im surrounded by dark clouds of this looming bs every day or i just want out of tech in general. if i go to look for a job or do something on my own my mind, body and soul just shut down and say 'nope'.6
is it useless to try to test something that's constantly changing?
the software - the OS and all the packages
i mean...is there some magic distro that keeps things hella stable that is valid to even test on? you need some random update to account for a change in some language or library, or a new tech that's in the kernel. everything goes out the window real quick.
seems like just chasing your own tail and getting no where2
ffs. was bitching about google changing the damn 'images/videos/maps' section beyond use, and they reverted it the same day. (still never in order, bc fuk sensibility right?)
but they fuked up image searching shortly after and that hasn't been reverted. wtf is this shit? do you assholes not even test? just break a main feature and then forget about it...yep, top tech company4
omfg. i need to work with a different team of comprehensible intelligent mfs.
ive been told there's a communication issue and then ever step of the way it's like ppl ignore me, or forget wtf we talked about 2 sec ago, let alone 2 days or 2 months ago.
obviously it'd be better to just make money with as little human interaction as possible but fuk if i know how to pull that off.
i have always thought about buying a 1 way ticket somewhere and leaving this shit.
right now seems like the best time to do that and actually benefit on all accounts from doing it7
seriously, does any linux distro have a stable fuking kernel?
ive used them all across different distros, 3.10, 4.w/e, 5.0-15...every fuking time i use some distro's kernel it breaks shit. dkms, initramfs, oom issues, nics being fubar, just any and every god damn thing.
use my own config and manual updates? no problems. ever.11
the other day i was bitching about git, and ofc everyone said rtfm
but ive done this 100s, if not 1000s of times - and it's always worked the same
git rebase -i HEAD~x
s for squash
and it's just telling me these changes conflict (they dont) - and then when i rebase-continue it fricking squashes 3 commits !??!?
looks like i updated to 2.37.2 in the last couple weeks -.- cute, kool, grand4
so im trying to build this old retro-box for some game testing...and ohhhhhh myyyy godddd
first of all - winxp is dead lol. browsers wont install, GPU driver doesnt work, some exes say they arent valid win32 bc idfk, old. found k-melon, some crusty offshoot of firefox i think and very um...gnu, lets call it gnu.
just getting a usb install was the worst part. ofc...no linux way to make a simple usb bootable from iso. dd is a no go, unetbootin psh ya right never works, others are more or less a cluster. finally say fuk it, boot a vm and do windows rufus...well that vm has no ad block. that site alone was atrocious. small middle section where the site is with ads NSEW. and then click the download..yep, another - wait still another ad. ffs you already have 50 on the page youre gona throw more at me for clicking download? all this to get something that aint gona work. 7 aint gona work, so ig 10 maybe? idfk what for...if the shit works well at all.
but between that and fone woes ive had. idk how everyone deals with the shit the world of tech has become. jesus-fuking-christ. want to cfg a mouse/keyboard? nope sry use windows tool. fu ill roll my own tyvm qmk. you want to show someone a 10sec video? nope watch a minute ad, that's broken, and repeats forever. you want to see a simple web page? NOBUYMYTHINGANDSTUFFINYOURFACE - fuk off
and earlier today someone mentioned that plugins are changing and some anti-ad ppl say it's gg...dude...fuk this proprietary world. it's just all garbage. im only really still in society's game for the tech, and you know what i just really dont care that much anymore5
i refrain from doing that (scolding coworkers) since i dont get paid for it. ive seen it enough. never really seen something good come from it.
but god damn am i close with the ppl i work with now. get you fucking shit together guys.1
man. my job situation just keeps on dragging and getting more 'interesting' lets call it.
the nonsense and either complete incompetence or malcontent...just astounding. basically was told to undo/reenable something someone requested even though shit is still broke and they wont do anything about it even though theyre the only one who can.
i really need to get my head around w/e is stopping me from doing shit on my own and making a bill to quit this drudgery
