Pronouncing [ṡṡċċḣḣẇẇȧȧ] is easy; you just say it like the 'x' in 'fire'.

There's no other satisfaction, like finally squashing that bug in your code, which has been eating up your last few weeks of work hours. Rest in pieces, you ill-defined portion of text. Now, let's move onto working on what I should have been doing for the last few weeks! 🙈

There are several key accounts I've been following for updates on what's going on over there as it's happening, and it dawned on me that instead of keeping several tabs open I could collate the accounts into a list XD So here's the list.

burnout, working from home 

Ok, this week I've decided to go back to the office for a few hours at the end of each day, to try and boost my productivity. After not being here for over a year an a half, first things first: update software and OS in the office computer 😞

I can literally hear my productivity fly out of the room...

So, I just asked the tech guy at one of our clients why every other PDFs I receive from them have been scanned as images. Everyone there is using the latest MS Word. All you have to do is Save As PDF. Apparently one there, won't do that. They print the Word Doc from their workstation to a printer in another room; then walk across that room to a copy machine; scans the document; and then sends the scan, now an image PDF, from the copier back to their workstation.
