So using Vagrant and virtual machines as build environments (vs just having a build environment on your laptop or a dedicated VM) is a thing now, and I'm wondering how much time is lost waiting on the environment to set itself up every time someone needs to test a build over and over.
I'm convinced sysadmins developed this method because they were jealous of developers starting a build and getting to go have a smoke.
This amazing movie is why all your award shows are a sham.
So... just how does one approach a quote for #IT #SaaS that is well into the five-digit range, when one was expecting low four digits at most? It's not just that the service is way too expensive for what it does, it's that we'll never get that kind of value of it. It's a "nice to have" on our side, not a business-critical function.
My mother passed her recipes on to me by letting me copy stuff out of her cookbooks and, eventually, giving them to me.
I just passed my recipes on to my daughter by sending her a link to the Plack server that runs on my desktop machine and serves up the web pages and text files of recipes I've saved.
Strange Planet simply makes me smile. Not enough of that in today's world.
I wonder how many games have been made that involve Santa losing all the gifts and the player recovering them.

You know how tricky it is to change a deploy process to prevent people from deploying with the script in an old copy of a repository? Chicken and egg... changing how the script works won't fix the problem until everyone updates their repo, and not updating the repo is the problem I'm trying to avoid.
grown-ass adult with a mortgage and kids: Is this pizza still good?
me: It's been out since yesterday. It should be thrown away.
GAAwaMaK: It's been less than 24 hours, it won't kill me.
Friends, this is not how food works... not even pizza. Over 2 hours at room temperature, throw it out. It's called food _poisoning_ for a reason.
For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”
We need more media platforms like that.
I have to admit, I'm a grumpy old man... 25+ years as a systems engineer and you start to feel like anybody with less than 10 years of experience is still a beginner. The irony being that the _important_ things aren't tools and software languages... there's understanding ease and cost of maintainability, working with others, seeing the difference between good and bad solutions, etc. Experience you can't get from a book or video.
