like, if you persist and choose the path of most harm to yourself despite my efforts to avert that, you can make your own bed, i’m not going to perform my piece to death to appease your vanity to make you change, i honestly rather watch you burn out of spite.
i was mainly after new angels for my serra commander deck. the colors don’t fit, but i really like the art on the showcase ‘firja, judge of valor’ though
funnily enough, i never discovered this stuff while i was working on a video conferencing product. i probably didn’t use it enough to notice this, as it’s taken 3-4 weeks of constant use to notice this now.
it also has me noticing that i make less eye contact with people as they make less eye contact with me (looking at where ‘i’ am vs where the camera is) and that is pretty interesting as i now spend a lot of time looking away from my screen.
when i stopped writing software for myself a number of years ago, i found that i could tell when i was about to embark on digging myself a hole for no good reason, and instead i started to think about why that was. recognizing this in myself helped me spot it in others too.
though i think most of my current stories are about how fucking scared everyone seems to be about establishing process for anything as a basis of communicating needs, and how that gets you into deep shit because you do things without having systems to balance out consequences.
i once asked him what the actual point of that was, because the vast majority of the team couldn’t solve it either, and he got incredibly upset and i stopped getting included in interview panels after that.
it’s also so mundane, like, i once had a coworker regularly give technical whiteboard questions to correct a syntax error in a nested set of 10-15 ternary statements in C that was filled with archaic syntax.
now, i’ll admit that i’m 110% a sadist but what this guy did was…yikes
maybe i could write and sell it as fantasy and get away with it that way? some of this is so utterly unbelievable that i’m not sure there is much point in trying to recount it.
hi, i'm demi. i have an undiagnosed illness (causing peripheral neuropathy), and suffer from severe chronic pain.
