hell just froze over. a HN thread (!) rejecting python as a shellscript alternative because it's too messy while referencing #perl in a positive light (ubiquity, no version mess (!!))
I also can't tell if I'm supposed to quit now basically but why give me a golden cage level raise first pay her to bind her LotR but then put me in a scenario which in the end (2-3 months max) probably does make me quit due to me having to basically sit on my hands and DON'T run on my full skills so wtf hire me in the first place they knew me upfront AND explicitly promoted me to tech lead/architect with a healthy dose of dev rel and mentoring expectations to bring things forward which I did
had a "career" talk today bordering on dadaism like I literally can't tell if I got pro- or demoted by being asked to not join a meeting while continuing attending a different meeting with the same people in order to work together with them but not be part of the team of them and this is supposed to be an appreciation of my value. got a pretty high raise last salary round but feel like I'm paid to NOT do a better job so that I stay engaged but stop doing stuff I have never been so confused.
I deeply deeply hate if I write something to-the-point-witty and then can't take the typo back because otherwise I have to delete the tweet and I think it was nr 2 on the #genx list wasn't it...
jaqueline of all trades. "irgendwas mit computern". minimalist code and simple things. "my code, of course, begins with 4GH". "the quality that has no name."
