As the discipline of software engineering matures, I look forward to a (hopeful) eventual maturation of the views on “being a programmer through life’s seasons.”
Talking to potential employers, I’m tempted to ask this deep, telling, insight-garnering, culture-vetting question: “Do most men there wash their hands after using the bathroom, or not?” I’ll be off-site a majority of the time, but still. :)
When a recruiter's email opens with "Hey Hey there", discusses a technology you aren't interested in anymore, and cites a pitiful pay rate, I don't feel a lot of pressure to reply.
“Obviously...you don’t know how logic works.” My reaction to many things of late.
Watched snow flurries for a while today. The flakes were huge, many I estimated were >2” across.
I’m not a fan of the silence between my providing a project estimate and hearing back. Even simple “thanks, I got it” acknowledgements are rare. Kinda sucks after spending time and effort on something.
It takes me longer than I'd like to estimate projects. I need to work on that so I can get them estimated more quickly with relatively the same level of detail and confidence, somehow.
But that is unlikely. Heh. So hopefully I can not only survive _but thrive_ in the coming week. I’m gonna try and make it a good one.
Being in a busy period, already behind on my task list, combined with family issues of late, and then getting sick myself and basically sleeping the last 2.5 days, means I could *really* use 40-or-more-hours’ worth of productivity in the next 10 hours.
