Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.
Very glad I'm leaving this company (that recently acquired us). I'm trying to train up one of *their* engineers on our codebase. But their engineers don't have admin on their own laptops. Any local sudo command requires opening a ticket with IT.
IT has some minor, but
admittedly-legitimate, concerns with how we use NFS in our local dev environments. As a result, they're blocking our ability to onboard their engineer for several days. >.<
Just a heads-up: I quit my job and am fleeing the country.
No but really. Quit the startup I've been at for 4.5 years (got acquired last month I'm not super excited about it). Gonna take the opportunity to travel between gigs for most of the summer - got a flight to Paris at the end of April.
Should be back in the US in last August when I run out of money.

I've been doing a bit of digging into the academic literature on hiring. It turns out the reference checks kinda suck, but letters of recommendation SUUUUUUUCCCCCKKK. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/2518065_Employment_References_Who_Are_We_Talking_About
Really, all technical talks would be improved by colorful impressions of lemur voices like @baweaver 's.
Snark, code, and politics in some order. He/him.
