    So my school leadership just found out this morning that starting in the 20-21 school year their students will be required to obtain some sort of professional certification in order to graduate. This came with no warning apparently. Nobody had ever mentioned to them that this was even being considered or discussed.

    So now they're panicking and trying to come up with something to apply to ALL students. Thank god I it's a whole pile of not-my-problem.

    This came just 24 hours after the district dropped something about requiring certain digital citizenship/tech literacy requirements on every student in the district to be completed by the middle of May. Of course this means schools are mad at the tech department, but we were caught just as flat-footed as they were and knew nothing about it, therefore have no guidance to give principals. This is kinda sorta my problem, but the guidance delivered to me was today was to point principals and teachers to a different department entirely.

    My boss let me know that everything's been taken care of just to let me relax. He said one client got angry because I'm the only one in the area who can do virus removals in the field and I won't be in tomorrow, so she has to be rescheduled to another day. She threw a fit and started screaming at my boss, who told her "hey yeah I get it, I can cancel the appointment instead, no problem, hope you have a great day."

    So hey, that's cool. Now I don't have to worry about clients and can just freak out about everything else!

    Having a boss who will stand up for you to unreasonable customers is a gift. When I worked on the helpdesk our boss would not stand for people being excessively rude to us. If we reported someone, even a doctor for crossing a line he'd get their manager on their case about it.

    I wrote "this is gross and unethical" on the company newsfeed article comments section

    Really sticking it to man right here with this meaningless act that will probably get me fired

    Better work on that resume and begin looking for a job that pays at least $15/hr

    I start overnights again but I was so used to sleeping till 11am and going to bed at 3am that I tired staying up so I could sleep later. I failed in that as I got up a little after 1
    I know I will be tired when I come home. I am also scared that I am going to be put in charge of Cap 2 again and clean up the mess it is again

    I initially balked at spending $50 of my own money on table cloths but the food is done and I didn't have to spend my entire evening cleaning tables! I only lost four of the table cloths to damage so I can reuse the rest.

    So I'm going to do something very stupid

    I graduate from graduate school in May.

    For those that don't know I spent 2 years between undergrad and grad school waiting on a security clearance

    Well there's a position I am qualified for (almost explicitly what my program is designed to churn out), in my city, with an interesting org of the federal government, that requires a security clearance, that I'm going to apply for

    Because this dick don't learn things the first time

    That aside I'm applying for mostly public data analyst/program analyst type positions right now. Preferably wanna get something in public finance, but meh. Gonna apply for more private sector stuff as I get closer to graduation, but right now I want to focus on applying to public sector stuff because that's where I want to work. Most preferably with the city, but other public sector work around here is good too.

    Luckily I'll have lots of experience in data management from my own research work and my RA work to talk about in an interview. Any time I get asked a question I'll start with "let me tell you motherfuckers about Arkansas"

    At work we use a bot for support tickets via Discord. A paid bot. With a monthly fee and everything. Like, it's a legit piece of software and seems to be about the best option of this type that I've found.

    Anyway, today I was checking through the ticket logs on it because I needed to find something. This was my first time diving into the logs. Luckily each ticket is archived as its own file, AND they're date and time stamped, so this should be easy! But as soon as I start digging through them, none of it makes any goddamn sense. I start to wonder if all the numbers in the file names are even date/time stamps or if they're just randomly assigned because I can't make heads or tails of it.

    You know, usually when you use date and time in filenames, you'd do something sensible like YYYY-MM-DD-hh-mm-ss. Or if you're a stubborn American who doesn't care about your future self having to find files, you go MM-DD-YYYY-hh-mm-ss.

    Then it hit me. The galaxy brain who wrote this bot (and hard coded the timestamps) set them up as: ssmmhhMMDDYYYY

    I guess? Some of the career/trade classes already did this for the kids that stuck with the program for some number of years, but there's a population of kids who don't stick with one program, or mainly focus on college classes and academics.

    I would not be at all opposed to every high schooler walking out with a Core 1 A+ Cert or something. Technology literacy is way down on the baseline. It's easy for me to say that though because I wouldn't be teaching it. It's spendy and a bit overkill, but I have no certs whatsoever so I don't know if there's a lower tier or something that would cover basic shit like what the parts of a computer do and basic troubleshooting and just generally how shit works on the internet.
