    Yeah I'm trying one last thing... If that doesn't work I'll just tell the company performing my background check to just call my company and I'll deal with it. I'm tired of walking on eggshells for these assholes.

  • urahonkyurahonky Registered User regular
    Wow. Holy shit. The COO came in and said "Aren't we all happier without him?" And my friend's immediate supervisor said (to himself) "No, just you."

    AND apparently one of the guys here got into trouble for showing a product that we SELL to a subcontractor without her knowledge. He was just showing him the tool that we use (the GUI, nothing more) and he is in some deep shit.

    Toxic environments are bad, that company is about to have massive turnover, if not collapse under it's own weight.

    Also saying you need it for a loan is lying, technically, but, they were basically being shit bags to begin with and deserve no respect or treatment as if they have it. Lie if questioned about "what kind of financial stuff."

    You don't want to admit it, then Lockheed turns around and says "sorry you didn't pass the background check" and then you were fired for admitting it. Never, ever, ever admit to your current job what you are doing with your personal life, or if you're looking for a job.

    Ever. If it means you have to lie and be a shitbag, lie and be a shitbag. You never want to be jobless. Not being employed for a week can be detrimental if you aren't super fucking careful. 2 week employment gap can start looking bad.

    So, when questioned as to why you need it, say you need it for a financial reason. If pestered as to why you need it, say a loan.

    Did you tender your resignation on the spot?

    Fuck you both, I love me some JAVA!!! :-)

    Though, this weekend I am going to dive into some Python. There's a module for web scraping that seems too good to be true and I want to try to use it for another project I am on.

    I actually kind of like Java, so I'm mostly just trying to be funny.

    I still greatly prefer C# though.

    Preferred user authentication stuff for Rails 3? What it is? I'm looking at AuthLogic and Devise right now. They both seem like an awful lot of work to setup when I'm used to django.contrib.auth.

    Are you looking at BeautifulSoup or Scrapy(which I think uses BeautifulSoup)? I've done some work with BeautifulSoup and it was amazing. I had a remote office that was supposed to upload an xml file via ftp every minute. Only sometimes someone messes with their setup and they send an html file which has xml embedded in it instead of the plain xml. I was able to use the same code with BeautifulSoup to handle both cases, plus one or two other variations that they also somehow managed to send me once or twice.

    Yeah, its Beautiful Soup that I want to play with! I wrote one by hand in JAVA and it works well enough, but there's tons of fringe cases, and if someone has already made the wheel, why re-invent it? So I hope to play this weekend! Glad to hear other people found it awesome!

    Beautiful soup is just delicious. I love it so much.
    It's the speed with which you can write a scraper with it is just phenomenal.

    @urahonky You should be getting a W-2 within the next 2 weeks from your employer that should be better proof of employment than a paystub even for your background check. And there is no way your employer can avoid giving you that.

    I literally just sent them my bonus check (which had the company's name and address with tax ID) with my past 5 direct deposits (including today's). I just got notification that they received them so I'm guessing that may be enough.

    Arrrrrrggghhhh!!!

    What the motherfucking christ!? Since when is negotiateSecurityContext defaulting to 'true'? Why is it the only thing in the included config files which isn't there and turns out to be the source of all my problems!! And why the ever living fuck are the error messages so vague.

    I use Devise for authentication and CanCan for authorization.

    Devise is pretty easy to setup if you use it's out of the box settings. It's very basic Rails stuff, generate a model, generate a controller, etc.

    It uses LESS, but the basic idea of me not doing shit to come up with some sane CSS, and just applying classes that someone else built to all my markup holds. Because I'm not a designer, and they are much better at the whole thing than I am.

    Yeah, that's what I decided to go with. Just Devise for now, but I'll be adding CanCan. Taking baby steps getting it all working so that I understand it all. Rails seems to have a different take on much of this stuff than Django. For instance Devise has the functionality of like 5 Django apps. For Django auth is one app, and you just create login views real quick yourself. The whole account creation/signup/password recovery is handled through a different app, django-registration (or write your own), etc. Although CanCan seems to be baked into django's built in auth system.

    @Bowen, you have the VS plugin that gives you SASS, LESS, and CoffeeScript, right? http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/2b96d16a-c986-4501-8f97-8008f9db141a

    I'm trying to get used to SASS, but all the frameworks and shit make it daunting.

    Nowadays I prefer SASS over LESS, but that's mainly because I can write it in Haml without cruft like curly braces and semicolons.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    I like C# but I don't think I can stomach the ASP.NET MVC style they've chosen. It just feels alien to me.

    I use SASS now as well, for a much more pragmatic reason:

    twitter-bootstrap-less doesn't compile on Windows, it requires Libv8 which requires a ton of patches to compile on Windows.

    boostrapp-sass doesn't require that, and works fine on Windows.

    I take it padev is set up for that? Maybe I'll learn me some ASP.net

  • Jimmy KingJimmy King Registered User regular
    I think about setting up mono to do asp.net stuff sometimes. I like c# alright, I just have spent so much time learning my various linux stacks that I have no interest in getting to the same level with windows, plus so many tools just aren't available. I need another skill set that's not at all in demand in this area less than I need a hole in my head, though. At least a hole in my head might get me paid for disability.

  • InfidelInfidel Heretic Registered User regular
    PAdev is running mono services, I think GnomeTank was the only one using it.

    Yeah, last time I used it on PADev, Mono was up to whatever the .NET 4.0 equivalent was.

    That said, Infidel never setup ASP.NET web stuff in Apache, because it's a huge pain in the ass.

    I mean, no more or less difficult than getting RoR setup...but the way Infidel has PA all virtualized out with neat little sandboxes for everything, I have no idea how difficult that would be to setup for Mono's ASP.net...I'm just assuming "pain in the ass" territory. Especially since there isn't something like rvm for Mono, that I am aware of.

    I don't believe it is all that bad compared to anything else.

    If you are trying to set something up let me know and I can enable the site in apache.
