    And now I'll sit here, watching Young Ones episodes for the rest of the day.

    A day well spent.

    Me: Are there any steps you can think of that might have caused the duplicates?

    User: I hit the save button a lot.

    Me: You hit the save button 27 times?

    User: Sometimes you get cranky.

    Remember late 90s / early 2000s playing "synergy bingo" during vendor meetings, every occurance of the word "synergy" would result in a schooner at lunchtime, because they were paying. ;)

    So many buzzwords these days, even the most highly tolerant individuals would die from alcohol poisoning by 9:15am.

    So our company are soft launching some internal training stuff. It's nice enough but there's no training in it. It's just multiple choice questions. I'm really confused what they plan to teach if it's just "sit exam, show us how confident you are in your answers".

    Well that sucked. for the first time in 20 years, I bombed an interview.

    In other rant-related news. I had a one line email from the GM:

    "Can you please set <NEWUSER> up on our email system for this Thursday."

    That's it. No other info. not even a last name. not even from HR!

    Bummer. I've got an interview Wednesday, but I'm on the fence. I kinda like those, because I tend to have a bit of fun with them.

    This is how 98% of our new users are added. Well, almost. Typically our emails go something like "the user is at their desk waiting, please set up email and accounts for them now".

    Thankfully I.T cannot proceed here as our personnel number forms part of the username so we cannot do anything unless HR have done their part. It's made it easier to shift responsibility for everyone to do their process.

    Haha fuck no. Wearing my wife's company logo on a polo (this is my long game - to work for her company and be a subby). :)

    It's 2019 and I live in the sub tropics. Fuck your Victorian era cold climate noose. (Currently sitting in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt with a 90s cartoon character on it, talking to our executive board later today).

    I love that mental image mate. Thanks for making me smile today.

    In more IT shitfuckery today, another email about 3 more modules to be delivered for <cloud application> that I know nothing about.

    Does Qld even have decent IT positions? Seems like the state is all about primary industries and tourism. ( + annoying the rest of the country with their politics/voting )

    After watching Billions... this quote out of context is highly amusing
