  1. Careerchat II

    So, I just got an email from a contact at my previous job (same organization), to ask if I'd be interested in a development role with their team. It's very flattering. However, I have no formal dev experience. I do have some background. They're aware of all this but think I would do well in the role with support from their team. However, I've only been in my current role for about 10 months. By the time this went through, if I got it -- I'd still have to interview -- it would probably be a bit over a year, but that's still not very long. Currently I do IT infrastructure and I like my job a lot. Pros: Looks like a solid pay bump, and always nice to be moving up and developing new skills I know the people on the team, they're nice EDIT: This is important and I forgot it. My career trajectory on my current path is something like a network engineer. Are these jobs going to continue to exist vs. being outsourced? I don't know. Very flattering to be recruited like this Cons: I really like the job I'm in now and the team I work with My current boss has invested quite a lot in my professional development, and to run out after a year seems pretty crummy and disloyal Would I even be any good at this? Interested in your thoughts. It seems like the cons list is stronger, especially the part where I don't want to be the asshole who splits after so little time. If I should decline, how does one do that politely? Really awesome of them to reach out to me and I want to be sure they know how much I appreciate it.
  2. Someone mentioned this earlier, but... I'm a Clinton voter. i also pay very close attention to politics, much closer than average. I'm comfortable saying Clinton's policies will be more to my liking than Trump's, to say nothing of the horrifyingly inappropriate things Trump has said and done. That said, if I'm honest, I couldn't tell you what most of her economic policies are. I know she's more pro-immigration than Trump, but I couldn't describe her specific plans. I'm 100% sure she has them -- she's famously detail-oriented. But I don't really know what they are. In contrast, Trump's plans are insane (Build a wall! No Muslims in the country! Deport everyone!), but I know what they are. I wonder if maybe people just didn't see specific plans to help them.
  3. Video Games: Thread Simulator 2016

    Review scores seem high but the actual reviews bad. A reviewer that I know personally and trust says it is incredibly, comically bad. Be wary. Personally I wonder if the high numerical scores are a response to the flood of hate that reviewers notoriously receive when they review a fan favorite badly. The other part of this is that part of Overwatch is counter-picking. You should not expect to play the same hero an entire match. If someone on the other team is fucking you up, switch to a hero that counters theirs effectively.
  4. What are you listening to? Vol. XXII

    I am going to need to know if I should be interested in this if I enjoy, charitably, around three (3) Bomb The Music Industry! songs.
  5. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    Some of these look great, thanks! One question: Maseca/instant masa harina is different from masarepa, right? I keep Maseca on hand, but would have to find masarepa if it's different.
  6. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    I thought of another thing I like to make for breakfast: Tex-Mex style migas. I am interested to hear about other people's favorite breakfasts that aren't the standard American options. I love them but I crave variety.

    Oh, yes, I would never build a schedule for something I don't know anything about without consulting the people who do those tasks.

    That's a really good point.
  9. "Family Values" What now?

    I grew up in a family where my grandparents were around. They were at family events and holidays, they invited us over for dinner sometimes. They weren't omnipresent; they took us maybe a few times in the entirety of my childhood, and they picked us up from school a couple times. If a grandparent wants to be more involved, that seems nice. Is it an obligation? Are they bad grandparents if they aren't more involved? I'm not so sure. Maybe this is a culture clash of what people are used to?

    Interesting. Currently I do some light project management, but I'm not really a PM. I don't know if I'll ever be in that role formally, but I'm interested in people's thoughts about what separates good PMs from bad. Currently we have a PM whose job is a mainly coordination and tracking. He doesn't do much of either, we mostly end up doing both because otherwise it doesn't get done. I asked him for a scope of work for a not-yet-complete job we contracted out and he didn't have it.

    Work is putting me through a project management class, which is lovely as it's a skillset I want to have. One thing has stuck out to me: in the class, we were told that most projects don't meet their budget or schedule targets. Can someone explain to me why exactly we use a methodology whose proponents freely admit it doesn't work?
  12. Convince me that breakfast wasn't a terrible act of self-harm

    I am an avowed breakfast lover, but I have never found the Full English Breakfast appealing. Breakfast tacos are very nice. I like scrambled eggs with any combination of [ toast | breakfast potatoes | hash browns | bacon | croissant ]. Sometimes I fry the eggs, but I usually prefer to spice them in some way and eat them on toast. Oatmeal is good if you put good things in it. If I have the time shakshuka is a nice breakfast. Sometimes on the weekends I will make waffles. Sometimes pancakes, but rarely, because waffles are generally superior. Cereal is not the best, but it is very fast and takes no effort, if you're in a hurry.

    Breakfast in general is a delight, king of meals and incontrovertible proof that there is a supreme being who loves us. Your breakfast sounds kind of crap.
  14. U.S. Politics: 2016 Election Goes To Overtime

    Re: Romney for State, he did cite Russia as the primary adversary for the US, a claim for which he was laughed at, near universally. (I'm not exempting myself here.) That's looking pretty prescient about now. Certainly he's looking like a better pick than Giuliani.
  15. U.S. Politics: 2016 Election Goes To Overtime

    I don't disagree, but I and others have been advocating against machines like this for exactly that reason. I would prefer as low-tech a voting method as we can manage precisely because I have never trusted the security of these things. Again, no disagreement, just using this to point out that this is a real problem.
