  • @GHoosdum said: My team is in constant desperate need of people who can both communicate and code effectively. We're unicorns. I spend more time doing communication training than technical training.
  • My dad's job was outsourced when I was in college. A developer with 20 years of experience in their systems, and they replaced him with a team in India. So my dad used his severance to buy some books (including many for me!), worked at Toys R Us ove…

  • @Thrax said: 1200sqft for $500K lol OK While I agree, a brand new renovation wrapped in a Victorian facade is a very small market, let alone that it's in Woodbridge where it's perpetually a seller's market. I wouldn't be shocked if they g…

  • @primesuspect said: The social cost is very small. There are many companies (in tech especially) where that isn't true, and the social cost begets a career cost. I have to be very careful as Vanilla grows that I don't accidentally encoura…
  • We need a reaction for "the @Annes grunt of approval".
    in My Progress/Goals Comment by Linc 10 Sep
  • @Cliff_Forster said: when I'm upset about something my first thought isn't "where is my drink" I've often considered that thinking about alcohol in a reactionary way (rather a proactive way) is the first step down a slippery slope. On the…
  • @CB said: I CAN'T WAIT TO CHECK MY MAIL IN LIKE A WEEK AND A HALF!! Every time I mail something to Europe I'm like "lol this can't be a real address, there's no way this is getting to anyone."
  • @TBonZ said: How the hell have the rest of you been? Remember those Folding@Home signatures that I learned how to code to make? Anyway I'm in charge of 3 teams of developers now. Life is weird.
  • Mailing #1 is locked and loaded! So you know: There's more than a postcard in the envelope. Don't accidentally throw it away.
  • @BobbyDigi said: Is there a way to check if we are on the list? No, just gotta ask me. You are indeed signed up. @BobbyDigi said: any pros or cons to each member signing up or signing up as a household? No, that's why I …
  • The list will be locked in for the first mailing on Aug 31. After that, you'll have to wait for the next round. I wouldn't.
  • I found what was doing this once and for all. Patch is now deployed.
  • There should be three things on your homepage: * Areas you work in. * Specific work you do. * Phone number and email. Probably in that order. Everything else is gravy. If I am coming to a website I want to know if you will come to my a…
  • @AlexDeGruven said: Added the kids on there, too. Because why not? But omitted your last name, because why not.
  • @RyanMM said: I would like to see "BA Stout showdown" become a regular one that I throw on a smaller scale - maybe 6-8 people, pared down food, and scaled back to maybe 8 beers. Always non-flavored stouts, the goal to find those BCBS killers that…
  • Tentatively “in”. Mostly depends on the chosen route and date, and overall plan. I’ve also found April to be prime backpacking weather. I’ve done a lot of backpacking training (via the Scouts) if anyone is interested in setting up a session in…
  • These are the events that met or exceeded a 4.5 / 5 weighted average after removing the lowest & highest score: * Seafood Boil * Pokemon Go! * Giant Catan * Pedal Pub * Carcasonne Tournament * D&D Campaign On this year's more a…
  • Gonna close this down in another day, so time to get at it if you’re dallying.
  • Frank & Beans?
  • @CrazyJoe said: spent 2+ hours on the plane. I hope there was at least free liquor or else I'd've popped that hatch and rode the slide to freedom.
  • @UPSLynx said: So we played two games and I recall lincoln telling the desk guy to extend it an hour (or something like that). If we played two games should we pay an extra 3 bucks? I paid for the second hour on my lane. I assume @sazboo…
