Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

  • Re: Please synergize this report and turn it into the [job] thread tomorrow

    I had to explain to some coworkers today why the repeated use of shortening the word decision isn't going to work.

    It is being used in this context:
    "So, we need to decide who has the D here?"
    "No, it's completely clear, he has the D."
    "But, what is I want the D instead?"

    After explaining why that won't work, especially with anyone younger in the corporation, I proceeded to have to re-explain it to my boss, and my bosses boss.

    I'll take Extremely Awkward conversations for $1000 Alex.

    At my company we had an unironically named department called Customer Loss Information Team. People were deer-in-the-headlights when a bunch of people started laughing after the announcement.

    Selfish whining in the spoiler because I feel bad but need to put it down somewhere:
    Spoiler:

    I want to say we could start a club but I'm not fully convinced this particular club would satisfy anything.
    Spoiler:

    I am (and was last time) in the opposite boat. From the day Kim finds out she is pregnant, she basically wants no physical contact outside of pecks on the cheek and occasional hand-holding for the entire stretch. She says she just feels "off" and wants to wait out the clock on her own in as many ways as possible.

    And you just gotta respect that and give them their space and ride it out by yourself for a stretch. Now, this time next year and still nothing, or if you start getting other negative signs, you might have a therapy-sized problem on your hands. But lots of people will tell you that first year is a very different place to be for moms and they all react very differently to the whole process.

    And I guarantee she's being truthful about your weight not being the issue. BUT (and I can tell you this from experience) vigorous exercise and putting effort into your health really does help release pent-up energy, especially sexual energy. If all you're doing is sitting around the house watching TV and handling your own business (and believe me I've been there) you're just going to feel worse about all of it. Put yourself together a simple daily routine (pushups, situps, and squats will take you a long way) and just work through it.

    It won't take the place of what you're missing, but you'll feel a LOT less like a coiled snake in your own house all the damn time. Just don't be an idiot in how you present it to her, or you'll fuck stuff up. "I'm doing pushups because all this energy has to go SOMEWHERE," is a really dumb thing to say. "This doesn't have anything to do with you, us, or our bedroom, I just feel like I could tighten up a little and take better care of myself," is a smart thing to say.

    This is good advice, thanks. And just to reiterate, I am 100% not being pushy, and definitely giving her space and respect. It's just really difficult to get over the "is there something wrong with me?" brain tricks. I'd love to squeeze in some workouts...but I just don't know when I can do it.

    Not to get too off-topic, but this is a great workout to fit into a busy schedule:

    Yeah, the thing about low speed bike maneuvering is that it's COMPLETELY different from being up to speed. A lot of it is about how to drop the bike to the sides and letting the bike do the job, which takes practice and confidence. If you're worried about it, practice with a bicycle, as the fundamentals are the same at low speeds.

    EDIT: @TheStig‌ Only thing to watch out for on subarus are the head gaskets. Make sure they're checked periodically, as it's a 1-2k fix if you catch it in time, and a dead engine if you don't. Other than that, they generally run like a top.

    What SAP is and does is the mystery of my life. I had dinner with an SAP developer once and even he could not tell me in private conversation exactly what the fuck SAP does.

    As far as I can tell, it's like the software division of IBM. Insert money, eventually receive business software, continue to insert money for the rest of your life to maintain it.

    gotta paradigm those key metrics or you'll never immanentize the eschaton

    Wait a second....

    You have to shift the paradigm to synergize your systemic capabilities in order to effectively leverage your core competencies into a highly monetized model moving forward. While user experience is important, it is not as paramount as our run rate metrics and should be prioritized accordingly.

    All hail Corporathulhu.
