You mean like bringing home hookers, guns, or anything similar that might lead them to a fruitful career?
Defensive, much? Maybe something like tradeable sports cards, a lathe and furnace for smelting, screen printing tools, golf clubs? The list of cool stuff a kid could get geeked on is endless, but I enjoyed how you went straight to possibilities that carry to some serious negative connotations. For the record, I see nothing wrong with bringing a gun home if you show the children to respect it. I would encourage this practice, actually.
Somebody needs to do something about Samzenpus and the garbage he puts out.
Let's string him up!
I'm not trying to speak maliciously; I have nothing against the people I worked with. They're nice, intelligent people but they are not high quality coders or testers, or PMs. That is why you get such god awful products being released.
Just look @ the new version of Messenger - they do a lazy fetch for contact pictures even right after installing it. Who in their right mind would ship such an obvious flaw if the fix takes 10 minutes?
Great excuse to get rid of dead weight but it will be damn tough to carve them out.
I'll take a stab at the math.
Let's say that 20% of the shipping cost goes toward fuel and 70% goes to labor, the rest goes to paying off the ship, container rental, etc. Sounds reasonable.
Fixed that for you. Remember, using American longshoreman to unload.
Sorry, but we Germans have earned quite a reputation of going large-scale berzerk in the last centuries and every neighbouring country of us has suffered from it.
Exactly. You worked hard for that reputation, so you earned it. I'd hate it if you had to start all over again. (Particularly since I'm one of those neighbours.)
As an American let me say - please, go berzerk on your neighbors! We could use the opportunity to improve our global image doing what we do best - freeing the shit out of people!
How many people do we know ho complain every day about their
It's generally a good idea to spell check something before you copy and paste it.
I agree! Shoot the poor!
1/3 of the that company is a lethargic, inept test department. If you can actually do testing well they push you to be a dev. Test managers get no respect and find the ladder doesn't reach as high as a dev or pm's ladder. It frustrated me to no end to work with the testers there. Having to explain what my code does everytime I submit a patch, explaining something in a meeting and then two more times in person, the ridiculous amount of redundant emails that you have to forward to the same people over, and over...ugh. Until MS fixes it's test department (part of this will be getting devs and pms to respect test) your question will ring loudly to me and many other ex-employees, as well as those who remained.
