Must... vent!!!

I work for a global megacorporation selling billions of dollars worth of enterprise-level software annually.

My manager is testing my labs.

And one of the labs failed because in the parameters section she put
x = 12345
instead of
x=12345

What kind of lamebrained, should-be-fired-instantly engineer doesn't strip spaces out of parameters?!?!?!?!?

I hear you, NH.

while( isspace( *p ) ) p++;

HOW HARD IS THAT??? GET IT IN GEAR, PEOPLE!!!

Edit: *Gets Dressed* Stupid page break.

I really hate self-congratulation, especially in myself, but after this week, I'm beginning to think I just might need a cape.

Or at least a red fuzzy hat.

Aaand... NobodysWife has picked out my Halloween costume.

Six! Six pumpkins harvested from the garden so far!

The General has decided we're pumpkin farmers now.

Maybe a NobodysSanta alias.

I know at least one of those stick figure guys has a beard. :-)

Well, I haven't done anything yet. I'm down to around $100-$150 in "mad money" this month, so I need to see what he ordered. For example, if it was a battle case subscription, that's out of my league at the moment...

No, I understand that. Still good work to even offer. I'm not currently in a position where I can.

I'll leave it to you to find an appropriate avatar. Somehow I think you have more experience choosing them than I do.

We got approval from the head of school to have our students do a clothing-toys-etc. drive for children who lost all of their things in the fire.
When the families at our school are so privileged and the children have so much, I really feel it's important to try to help them learn to do something for others.

That's awesome!

Search for Durkon Thundershield, and you should be set.

You Get What You Pay For, Part #384:
I'm still doing dishes from Saturday's rib-fest.

  • $50 Le Crueset Stoneware: "Oh, did you bake something in me? Well, maybe soak me in warm water for half an hour and wipe me out with a sponge. I'll be fine, I'm sure."
  • $12 Pyrex Baking Dish: "Oh, you baked something in me? Well, soak me for a few hours, scrub hard with a copper scrubber, and then try a couple more times and I may come clean for you..."

    Awesome! Can we donate? The kids have been looking to sell off their (hundreds of) Ugly Dolls, and honestly I think they'd feel really good about it giving them to kids in need...

    EDIT: One of my serious peeves about living in the Bay Area is that all the major charities only accept brand-new, in-the-box-with-the-tags-still-on toys and clothing donations. I think I've mentioned that I get fantastic HR support because I donated a Celica-load of toys to a little girl in HR who lost her home in a fire. I haven't mentioned that I had that carload of toys because no charities would take them because they weren't new.

    Absolutely! We're putting on the list gently used toys, children's books, clothes, coats, pajamas, baby blankets, etc., and new packages of diapers, wipes, formula... you get the idea.

    We're gathering things all this week, and then Saturday after ballet I'm going to try to borrow my housemate's 4x4 to make a run up to Santa Rosa with the kids to take the boxes.

  • The Pyrex comes clean, but in the weirdest way. I don't even soak it. I run it through the dishwasher and then the stuff that's still stuck on can be easily scraped off with a plastic spatula and then clean the dish as normal. I haven't tested it, but I bet you could get similar results by filling the dish with water and baking it for a while. There's no way I would still have Pyrex if I had to put real effort into cleaning it :)

    I use brute force, a spatula, and multiple soaking if needed.

    Otherwise I just leave it on the counter for a week and then throw it away and tell the General it slipped off the counter.

    So... proud... right now....

    NobodysHome: Hey, Impus Major! So, you have those bags and bags of Ugly Dolls that you were planning on selling, right? Well, you know about the fires in Santa Rosa, and thousands of buildings have burned? Well, some of those were kids' houses, so there are kids who lost all their toys. And lisamarlene is organizing a donation drive to get some toys up to them. Would you be willing to send some of your Ugly dolls up there instead?
    Impus Major: You know what, Father? I am NOT going to allow my greed to prevent kids in need from getting my toys. Send them ALL, Father! Donate ALL my toys to charity! I don't need the money!

    The seed falls not far from the tree...

    Does he call you father IRL?

    cause I can honestly only imagine someone saying that if they're a small blonde upper class boy in late 19th century England dressed in shorts speaking in a received pronunciation accent.

    It's an affectation he uses when he's either being very serious or very sarcastic. He calls me "Dad" most of the time, but when I'm talking to him on the phone or when he's explaining something ridiculous to me it's "Father".

    I'm glad of it, too. It makes reducing meat consumption a lot easier. I'm not going vegetarian, but the health and environmental costs of this American "eat meat with every single meal, except occasionally breakfast" habit I was raised with are immense, and it would maybe be good for me and for the planet if I didn't eat meat every g@$*#+n day (and I'm throwing poultry and seafood in with meat in that statement). Soy burgers actually tasting good is a big plus towards making that desire a reality.

    They have new episodes of Cake Wars on Hulu.

    Sadly, there is no one throwing cakes at each other.

    Just four people and their assistants trying to make cakes as unappetizing as possible.

    I love it.

    I worked for eight months in smartphone servicing company in UK.

I got a smartphone from a friend two months ago but still haven't got to replacing my SIM card with microSIM fitting the smartphone. The smartphone acts as a book-reader and an occasional photo camera instead of phone.
    That was me, up until my dad bought himself a new one, just so I could inherit his old one, because it irritated him that my wife and I didn't text.
    Well, my old Sony Ericsson was perfectly suitable for texting (still is, battery issues aside). My parents don't do texting, though, they insist on calling :/
    We could hypothetically text, but it was terrible, and cost money, and we hated it, so always disabled that extra cost. And everyone wanted to know why we didn't send more pictures.

    Huh... Texting and sending pictures are two different things...
