currently at a mine site in the middle of the great sandy desert commissioning a new site with virtually nothing to do due to lack of attention paid by management.

Has anyone had folder indexing issues after the win10 creator update installs?

Installed it thismorning after twenty reboots. But now every time a file dialog pops up, it's as if it has to rebuild the folder preview of what sorting type I had it in previously, ect. Very strange.

It's a pretty tough discussion
Yeah, I'd this point, I'd be happy to see criminal charges filed against companies that do unforgivably stupid shit that could easily have been forseen.

Combines the aformentioned internet of shit, as well as insecure MongoDB's and Russian hackers encrypting said DB's ...

What happens to the people responsible?... well, as the share price was already in the shitter, fuck all.

Isn't half of the dumb shit in IOT land i've seen related to dumb asses directly exposing the IOT Vibrator to the web via a port mapping, with a default config completely untouched in the rush to get IOT Vibrator goodness?

Hey! MongoDB had the best free tshirt at the aws summit recently.

I mean if a company care about its swag then I can't hate on them...that much.

that being said there was a lot of drones being given away and a few of those were prime, some were absolute shit (shitebox copies of namebrands)

Don't think that's related to the creators update. I'm still on 1511 on this rig for some reason and I get that all the time.

What is it with project managers.
Morning conversation: "Your work should start at 1930, I'll call at 1915 to say how on time things are"
After lunch, same PM sends through the runsheet with expected timings.

When you go through the expected timings, my work should start at the earliest 2315, and working with a team who in the last 6 months have never handed anything over within an hour of when they were supposed to.

Afternoon pre-change meeting "And Cape will be starting at 1900, so testing should be able to be started by 1930..." (There is another 2 hours of work [according to the runsheet] between my job finishing and the start of testing)

Fuck it, was going to do the change from work, but now - going home early, they can call when they want me.

Interesting read :

Most software engineers in India can't engineer software

I'm actually dealing with this at the moment, a company we deal with is getting some work done by one of these developers and I'm stuck in the middle.

I've never seen so much work done for such a small change in my life. On top of all of it the job is integrating against a very well documented public API; it would have to be one of the easiest specs to read in the entire world.

Must have had 30 emails from the company "Why doesn't work?", response is always "Doesn't meet api spec, please see $specUrl"

Colossal waste of time.

much better to groom a few overseas programmers than to try and hire large teams. ie a couple offshore programmers managed by an onshore programmer. many people have found out they are not a silver bullet!

When you write the code and can't figure out why your code doesn't work then you are not a programmer, likewise if you cannot test your code properly before release... just fuck off and work at maccas.

send them 2 links.

1. Public API documentation.
2. lPostman or curl

And tell them to debug their shitpile of code because that is what you are paying them for!

ARK!!! I hate people asking why something that is used by (guessing) millions of people just happen to be broken because their little scripty doesn't work with said API.

A lot of people I know are starting to see a shift away from India due to everything that's 50% cheaper per hour taking 4x the hours to complete, and then needing to be fixed locally afterwards anyway. Can't come soon enough.

Found out we were spending thousands on low-quality video sharing portals today (and not for anything with any security/confidentiality requirements either. All banal crap).

I questioned why we weren't using the locked down YouTube channels we get with every single account we pay for to save these thousands. The response was "it's too difficult".

I reminded the same audience that my 11 year old daughter maintains her own YouTube channel. The response: "Yeah, but that's your DNA, so it's different and doesn't count".

TIL: children could replace grown adults I work with, they don't even consider that concerning, and will rationalise it away with little effort.
