    Third interview was the only one I felt solid on. Auuuuugh I suck. I should have friggin' memorized the HTTP response codes. But who the hell needs to know what 401 is ever? I figured knowing what 2xx, 3xx, 4xx, and 5xx basically cover would be enough!

    If it’s any comfort any time I have actively tried to bone up on a subject before an interview it never comes up

    Speaking of, I have to do some tech interviews of candidates tomorrow. It’s for a software position so I’m only there to probe their knowledge of robotics and hardware integration, and lack of expertise there is not a deal breaker, so I feel like beyond the compulsory culture fit questions I can just relax and ask them about stuff on their resume that looks cool.

    The only HTTP response code anybody should need to know is 418.

    Who memorizes stuff like that anyway, or rather, who judges somebody for not having it memorized? If it comes up regularly it'll stick and if it's rare it's simple to look up.

    I also sucked on the second interview, IMO. But a little less than the first. Third interview should have started at the hour but I'm waiting in the room.

    Hey, even if it wasn't a great one, by sheer dint of the fact you are reflective enough to know that means you've got a huge leg up on improving vs all the oblivious people. It's for sure a practicable skill, and not one most are born with. Take some time, regroup and re-attack it later.

    Project management integration with teams seems pretty good. Personally I just think the video and audio quality is much better in it

    Third interview was the best one, but that was all about soft skills which I have on lock. Whyyyyyyy didn't I memorize HTTP codes.

    I dislike Teams, but only because it’s when my company decided they should enable the chat deletion feature and now any convos are deleted after 30 days.

    The only other thing is dislike is I can’t open multiple windows. Say I want my calendar open while I’m also setting a meeting or using one of the built in applications.

    If you post and then come back to the thread it usually sorts itself out. That's why you usually see 'posting for forum bug' posts at the start of threads.

    If you could speak to stuff like what 4xx vs 5xx mean and what practical difference there is, that would put you ahead of a lot of people I've interviewed that may or may not have memorized a bunch of codes.

    I'd never want to work somewhere that memorization was important, or that the interviewer couldn't roll with forgotten details like that. It's the thought process you're supposed to be testing.

    One of by guys barely missed advancement this cycle and was really bummed about it. I asked if he wanted to sit and talk about it, he said yes, so a couple hours later I drive to his apartment and told him to step in to my office.

    My office:
    fimogdqa0lku.jpeg

    We spent over two hours talking. He’s applying to college, shoring up the fluff bullet points on his evaluation, and knows we’re pushing hard for him regarding meritorious advancement.

    So help me god at least someone in the Navy will have a decent boss.

    Every once and a while you’ll get hit with an interviewer that wasn’t very prepared and so they just ask about something that is technically OK but was likely something they just worked on that week (that they were able to use documentation to lookup the answer).

    Try to keep a positive attitude, and if it turns out they didn’t select you 1) take some pride in knowing you still did something not many people will ever be able to do (interview at a Big for a technical position) 2) know that even if this team doesn’t select you, it’s a big company with lots of teams that are potential homes.

    Owner and General Manager were doing shots when I walked in, the printers weren't working so everything was handwritten, my lazy ass coworker basically farted around all shift, then we got the news that the kitchen would be open until 2 a.m.

    Every.

    Fucking.

    Night.

    What's that? The door guy wouldn't let an underage girl in so her 'friend' decided to threaten the door guy with getting the handgun out of his car and then the door guy quit?

    General Manager gets called back in, drunk off his ass to handle the situation and we closed at 1 ... with the caveat that we will *not* be staying open until 2 ever again.

    Real fucking roller coaster of an evening, pretty sure several people got banned ... and I'm just the schmuck-new-guy in the kitchen wondering if he should get his concealed carry license.

    Oh, yeah, Mom had another fall earlier in the week, didn't come home from the ER until after 6 in the morning; luckily, she didn't rebreak her arm, she fell on her left side, breaking nothing but Dear Lord Sweet Jesus she looks like she got in the Octagon with Tito Ortiz. She'll be 66 next month and I am seriously, desperately worried about her health. Like, my every waking moment my brain is screaming at me, 'BLOOD CLOTS! STROKE! ANEURYSM!'

    Oh, and my schedule got changed so I have to be at work at 2 tomorrow (today) and pray to the kitchen gods that my slack ass coworker doesn't call in sick and I have to close for him.

    Fuck my life, fuck it with a rusty barbed wire dildo.

    I'm constantly using http.cat/418 to look things up because who has time to memorize that shit? 401, 403, one of them is Bad Request, if I need to know details I'll look it up, otherwise I'll just keep using the http.StatusBadRequest constant in my code explicitly so I get context at a glance without having to memorize 50-ish three-letter numbers.

    Also we use Status 418 as an easter egg in a few places.

    400 is bad request. 401 is unauthorised (you aren't logged in) whilst 403 is the dreaded forbidden (you're logged in but don't have access)

    But yeah - look it up once define it as a constant and use that from then on to make way more legible code. Then your switches in your response interceptors aren't just a bunch of three-digit numbers and you can ctrl-click on the constant to jump to where it's used properly

    Like jesus, every single thing provides you with ways to lock, you've been mandatory trained on this, I know there's no excuse yet here we always fucking are.

    Also that clerks/providers are monitored and trigger alerts for anything remotely suspiciously searched and get nailed, but sysadmins pretty much are invisible with full access to anything cause I guess so.

    Do you know how sick I am of unlocking people's computers because they lock themselves out and forgot their password?

    The same password they use every fucking day. Multiple times a day.

    Fuck yeah! District approved the library guidelines. Almost exactly the same stuff I suggested. We will be physically closed to students and have plans in place to facilitate book checkout and support.

    Having it be closed seems like it would be a downer, but it is a huge load off. I even had a panic dream last night about students flooding the library and no one wearing masks.

    Yea the convincing people is always the challenge. Its taken me moving heaven and earth to get people sharing info on basecamp instead of disjointed reply all emails and hoarded private excel files.
