I was called over to computers by a new coworker. I asked a customer "What's the problem?" because I didn't hear what the issue was over the radio.

 

He had the audacity to scold me like I'm a child for my phrasing! I should have said "What's your concern?" or "What's your worry?" according to him...

 

I've been called stupid and useless and other things; I've had customers put me down with their master's in IT and other bullshit (lol); and I handled those without any trouble, but to scold me in front of my coworkers?!

It's at that point you just walk away and say "It's your concern then".

 

Respect given is respect due, idec if I'd get reprimanded by HR. But that's probably why I don't work in a customer facing role anymore.

 

If you want to be petty about this in the future - whenever they ask for help in the future. Go through every single step Ad nauseam. "Press Windows", "Click Search", "Type CMD", "Delete System32"

"You know the Delete function deletes things", "When you delete something it is gone forever" "Forever is a long time" "A function is a set of commands that do something when invoked" "You invoke a function by typing something" "You type by interfacing with the ~96 switch instrument in-front of you" "You can interface by using your hands that are attached to the end of your arms - that are somehow controlled by your peanut of a brain". "Some switches do things, like a function, do you remember what a function is?"

Train was late by an hour, so I missed my connection. Ended up with the train company paying for a 140 km taxi ride to get me where I had my ticket to :D

 

Of note was that the taxi (a Volvo V70, around 2011-ish, 2.4d engine) had done 767 000 km's. That's almost half a million miles. On the first engine. And chassis. And everything. And the driver wasn't light with his right foot. Some cars are still built to last...

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Not so long ago we talked about ugly traffic situations and crappy commutes. A few of you said Seattle is awful. Today I learned how right you were. I-5 is the 13th level of hell

I may be going to Legend's (supposedly an amazing gay night club in Raleigh, NC) with some friends Friday!

 

In other news I've been working on a "panorama dungeon:"

 

cVSaqAj.png

 

The general idea is you start in a room with a locked door and a dead guy you can loot for basic supplies. You spawn with a key (since it's a demo) and enter a room with hostile Skelementals (skeleton + metal hybrids) and some tin/copper rocks. Following that room is a hallway with three branches: a large mine with many copper and tin rocks, a room (behind a door) with a furnace and anvils, and a room protected by a Big Scary Door containing the boss, a ghost miner foreman.

 

You'll have to find the blueprints to make the key to unlock the Big Scary Door . The miner foreman is too difficult to defeat with starting stats (...level 1), but there's pillars in the room. If you mine the pillars, some rocks fall from the roof a few seconds later dealing hefty damage to anyone (...including you...) under them. After mining all the pillars, the foreman should be easy to pick off.

 

Furthermore, you can make the Skelementals unagressive by wearing equipment of the same type of metal as the skelemental. You'll be able to make a tin can (and wear it as a crude helmet lol) and some copper item (unsure what yet) so you'll be safe as you mine and explore the dungeon.

 

The skelementals will exclusively drop copper and tin flakes which are essentially stackable ores and the miner foreman will drop dynamite that can be used as a one-off to instantly mine a rock.

 

No, this is not at all inspired by the first dungeon in NeoQuest II. What makes you think that?

Work place romances are for binge watch streaming, not real life, silly.

Seriously though, Neoquest is a great game and everyone should play it before Neopets inevitably shuts down (seriously how are they still around?)

Didn't you hear? Neopets is coming to mobile.

I had that job interview, and after a while they asked me some coding questions. I answered it for the most part and then they disappeared for about 20 minutes and sent me home early because my coding skills weren't good enough. I don't think I did that poorly...it was kind of surreal.

"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

I had an interview once where they had me make a small project, then rejected me without saying why. So I asked why and like 3 weeks later they responded with a huge list of nitpicky bs

so I interviewed someone today as part of a panel.

 

tl;dr Holy shit this guy was qualified but I have no idea what he would actually do there. So he has 20 years of impressive experience, a ph.d, a patent, management experience and everthing.

 

 

 

As a dev I saw he listed that he worked on a pipeline to render CAD models in real time on light hardware, anyone whos worked with CAD has dealt with how ridiculous their polygon count can get so i was genuinely interested. He says that this was all done manually and not automated. So that was pretty disappointing.

 

I'm thinking maybe he would be a good product owner (scrum) because hes had his own businesses and management experience but then its like idk once he explained that.

 

idk I feel weird to be on the otherside of the interview, especially with how early I am in my career.  Especially walking away from it feeling he was overqualified and didn't really know where he would fit in.

What was the question?
