anytime a European starts getting uppity just say something positive about the roma. theyíll forget whatever they were going on about (trains or walkable cities, probably) and start ranting about how terrible the roma are. all this accomplishes is making the European feel bad, which is good because Europeans should feel bad

the trouble is that the tenderloin is right at the heart of the city and directly at the tourist zones lol

i disagree. the entire bay area is repulsive to me. maybe there are better parts and worse parts but anyone who can see any part of that entire blighted city and think "yes this is a reasonable place for me to live" is very, very unlike me

I hate steam so assuming that Pittsburgh was mostly steam I can't disagree with that decision. Probably most people want central air now too, though.

If I bought a house with hot water I would probably just leave it and install mini-splits personally.

I stated at a place in NYC once where it was like someone hitting a pipe with a hammer right next to my ear and it woke me up every 20 minutes all night. It was a completely miserable experience.

I have lived in other places where it wasn't that bad though.

my house has hot water radiators with a high efficiency boiler and they make noise maybe once a week. works great. idk if i'd say it's better than central air but this is a beautiful old house that i'm not going to gently caress up with ducting for little benefit

cjs: Boss asked me to write up an ADR. I feel like I can start expanding into more of a senior role, now that we have another person joining staff and I've had a good few months to get familiar. And I feel there's a need for me to do this now that $boss is trying to be more hands off and is (afaict?) subtly nudging me in this direction

Are there some good books / recommended reading with getting more familiar and confident with that sort of role?

The social side of it is mostly fine, we are a pretty flat workspace, I'm more concerned around:

- getting more comfortable with writing up specs, seeing corner cases. hoping for something more specific on this than the usual middle managery stuff

- getting more comfortable with MVC systems and typical architectures for them (preferably something that isn't steeped in mvc buzzwordy bullshit)

- getting more able to voice how i feel a system should be designed rather than just going with the flow

I've (finally) started reading through The Design Of Everyday Things, I've skimmed the first part of Notes On The Synthesis of Form. I'm wondering about taking a look at The Manager's Path to see what I can glean from it. Any other suggestions? Maybe something I wouldn't have thought of?

Yeah I already have that under my belt. that does not really help with high level views of systems architecture, requirements analysis, high level design considerations, and object orientated programming :eng99:

How I want to design this system in a unixy way would just be a distraction from what rails wants to do, and what the system demands are, I think. But it is difficult to see what the more natural ways of approaching this are.

Will check that out :)

Yeah, so something I have identified as a deficiency currently is that I am bad at meta level thinking. It's something I want to look and get better at. Like for this ADR I can see maybe three different approaches for it, but preferentially I would leave it up to someone else to select which one because I have simultaneously low confidence in my own ability, and also a difficulty seeing past my own nose when I get actually stuck in to coding. The ideal solution would either be, in C, a struct with an integer and a union type that allows it to act as either struct A or struct B, or in FP land, a typedef that can either be type A or type B (maybe seeing those as record types). Instead I'm stuck with this "let's put half of our logic implicitly into the structure of the database" MVC weirdness and I'm trying to figure out the best path forward. So I guess what I'm specifically looking for are books that will a) help me develop that meta-level systems-design thinking. b) help me better reason about this weird way Rails does stuff (that I extremely hate and can see a ton of deficiencies and giant spike pits with, lol), and hopefully avoid some pitfalls people have fallen into before me

I guess maybe I need to just go back to the c2 wiki and read it with the mind of an elder rather than a young spotty nosed teenager. maybe.

i think maybe you have me on ignore because what youre asking for is what i posted. but ill try again

A friend of mine felt like he didn't have enough to put on his resume after college so he put down he managed a small team in college, and wrote a short blurb about how he would coordinate activities and stuff like that.

He was talking about how we would play dota 2 in college and he would constantly need to tell people what to do, where to go, etc when we played competitively. He said his first job was very impressed when he talked about it at the interview.

if someone was actually able to lead a Dota team successfully and deal with gamelord bullshit, talk down tilted assholes, help their players figure out how to improveÖlike yeah what do you think management is

or do you mean he was screaming at people in vc and calling it leadership because if so lol

i have a few friends in therapy and it seems like even theyre running out of helpful things to say these days. not making GBS threads on it as a whole but theres only so much think-about-the-good-things-in-your-life one can advise ityool 2022

i think there is only so much therapy can help if the problem is that your life sucks. therapy is great for me because my brain is a dumpster fire and i need help putting it out. but one nice consequence of spending 20 years depressed, anxious, and self-isolating is that pandemic times arent challenging. if i improve my social anxiety and start meeting people over zoom, thats a straight increase in quality of life. not like someone who was used to having a social life this whole time and now they get to not do that anymore

ime the #1 thing Iíve seen stop people benefiting from therapy is being unwilling to do the work. therapy doesnít fix poo poo. at best a therapist can suggest ways to fix yourself. itís a lot of hard work and at the end of the process youíre a different person with a different life. the people I have seen succeed with therapy didnít start because they were unhappy, they started because their life was. not. working. if youíre betting your life that you can fix yourself faster than the brain worms convince you to take a long walk off a short pier, thatís motivational

ymmv ofc but that is my perspective on what it takes for therapy to be effective

Ya know, I can't help but to flash back to a million times of being told I was lazy because my disease wouldn't get better, because I didn't put in the work.

Of course, I put in the work, it just didn't do anything because the problem was always physical damage that needed to be resolved first.

My life still doesn't work, but now therapy has been declared a bad idea by three psychiatrists, so there's that.

yeah thatís the other thing if your problem is organic or environmental then whatís therapy gonna do?
