Bumblebees are such dopes. I was out walking and watched as one went from flower to flower and waited until I was just in the right position so it could try to fly across the sidewalk and smack me right in the face. :3:

cjs: Coworker who needed three pings to get a couple SSL certificates generated finally sent them...and got the domain names wrong. Now we're another email and a Slack message into round two with no reply!

Best part is that I apparently could have requested authorization to submit SSL certificate requests myself this whole time I've worked here and nobody told me, especially not the overworked coworker who keeps dropping the ball.

our entire codebase is organized as eclipse projects and doesn't build properly in anything else. for ci/cd we have an ant script to invoke eclipse

I got my old job off of Vim and onto Eclipse in 2007 and I bet they're still on it. I got my current job off of Vim and onto IDEA in 2018 and I'm still on it. Looking forward to getting my next job off of VSCode and onto Notepad or whatever.

I'm always watching as my coworker who's been there for thirty years constantly fucks up with no consequences and yet still worry that I'll be "found out" and fired. Meanwhile, I wish they'd fire me. My brain is stupid.

is it normal for company-shutdown days (like 2 days around xmas, that kind of thing) to be taken from pto accrual

My company always claims the right to do this every year, because I work for a university and the campus shuts down between Christmas and New Year's. They move all the "floating" holidays to that week, but always leave one day uncovered and tell us we'll have to use a vacation day to cover it. Then, every year at the last minute, the campus president gives us a half-day off and the Cal State president gives us the other half-day off. They make sure to inform us that "this shall not be assumed to set a precedent" and it's stupid every time.

I do wonder what would happen if they actually tried to make us take the vacation day, though.

At my company, if you're out of vacation days, you just don't get paid for that day.

Edit: Specifically, for the day they always give us off at the last minute, since the rest of the week is covered by the floating holidays.

The best teams I've ever worked on have skipped 90% of the"ritual" meetings because they correctly identified them as a waste of time and mental energy

This is what's actually supposed to happen and most of the Scrum training just completely fails to mention it. The teams are supposed to self-organize and self-determine their processes. How often does either of those things actually happen?

cjs: The beta testers keep going to the URL of the old version of the application and wondering why they can't log in. I've told everybody the right URL twice now and I'm gonna need to tell them a third time. :)

send a mail to all of them and tag yourself on it so that you can enjoy reply all to its fullest

Exactly what I did last time! :) :) :)

I was debating turning off the old version of the application and replacing it with a "Go here, dummy" link, but it's the Test environment for the version that's currently in Production and that seems like poor planning.

Edit: I really look forward to turning off some of these old servers, which are only still running to serve such "Go here, dummy" links for other applications, and watching the tickets roll in.

seems like a real waste of resources. though i suppose everyone filters mails from the tech dept automatically into the trash

Yep! Fortunately, they're just VM's idling somewhere, most of the time. And yeah, the last time I left an "update your bookmarks and documentation to this new URL" link somewhere, somebody kept going to the old URL and clicking the link for several months and then filed a ticket when I finally disabled the old location. Seems like there's always going to be somebody who does that.
