First rule of private chat club is you do not talk about private chat club.

I'm in a couple of different private shitposting channels at work, and at my last job before Slack was a thing I ran my own XMPP server to get the same effect.  But the whole point of a secret chat clique is that nobody else knows it exists.  Letting your bosses know something existed that they weren't invited to was a blunder.
Be careful ó those channels are no longer really private if your company has the Plus plan.

Yeah, nothing incriminating gets said there.  I'm aware that a Slack admin can get in there whenever they want.  But it's safe enough for cynical smack-talk.

The incriminating stuff is on a whole separate Slack instance.   Or here.  why so serious?

Hmm, might have worked.  Though many of the lockers were near the baths at some of those places, so peoples phones might have still picked up the convo.

I typically don't chuckle at names but today I ran across someone named Peter Dichard.  I'm trying to figure out some angle to become his friend.

Thanks to the millennial generation, I have become a well-respected person that is considered extremely competent.  Along those lines I have been asked to turn around a failing project, and so things are going to get very awkward very fast.  Typically I'd say "awkward for the other guy" but I've been looking at leadership principles, as well as the project timeline, and I've determined that I need to somehow take this project away from someone that I also need to keep working on the project.  By the end of this, I'm sure I'll have learned a few things.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

There is Georgia and there is Metro Atlanta.  I'm here because this is where my money is.  Wife's family business is ingrained here.  Personally, I'm not tied to anything or anyone except my wife and son. I'd love to go somewhere with lower pollen counts, lower spider counts, and lower human counts.

Ahem. Anything above I-20 is usually terrible. Except no exceptions.

Look, Georgia is a state full of godawful except for all the pockets of pretty cool -- just like most everywhere else. Personally, I'm in a pocket of pretty cool, and have even done a bit to make it that way.

Damn, don't know why I felt the need to stand up and represent. I don't even really disagree, I just don't like to paint with that big a brush.

Well I was being funny for the most part. I like certain small towns all over Georgia. Macon's not bad, Dublin's pretty fun and has some cool areas, Greensboro is a great little town near a lake, Dahlonega has a great mountains area and cool wineries, Savannah is antebellum history in a city, St. Simons and the Gold Cost Islands are amazing.

Yeah, no idea why I knee-jerked into "defend the home turf" mode. But to your list I'd add college towns, especially Athens and Carrollton. And it's ancient history now, but the music scene through the mid eighties to the mid nineties was a blast.

I am prejudiced to smallish towns too though. Atlanta and metro are fun to visit, but not for long.

Well, this is positive - my current employer okayed the conversion, so that's moving forward.  The benefits are going to be so damn sweet, especially that whole paid vacation and holidays thing.  That's going to do wonders for my mental health right there.  And I was told my current salary should be in the range, so even better.

Happy Friday, y'all!

4 months into my new job and the company I work for probably won't last the summer. The company finished a huge investment last year that cost way more than it should have and repayment of loans is killing liquidity. At 4pm on friday I got a mail regarding depreciation of that investment and if liquidity doesn't do the job insolvency will finish things off. The only thing that can save things is a new investor but I don't think anyone is stupid enough to jump on board at this point.

At least I shouldn't have much problem finding myself a new job after summer.

Sounds like also you're in the position of being able to keep collecting paychecks for a few months while shopping for your next job, which is IMO ideal.

So it actually happened.  Had my new employee orientation yesterday and am now officially an employee at the place I've been a contractor for 7.5 years.  In addition to the fantastic benefits (3 weeks vacation to start, 10 holidays going to 11 next year, 3 personal days) the company has both a 401k and a pension. AND I can turn in a vesting form, showing how long I've worked here as a contractor, and have that count towards my pension vesting (meaning while there's nothing in there atm, I am officially fully vested in my pension, lol!).  Love it!

We're hiring a data analyst. Ideally you'd have some experience in games but that's not a hard requirement if you speak fluent Excel and can talk about SQL and KPIs for hours. You would need to relocate to Bangkok but the company will help with your visa and relocation.
Specific experience that would be very useful:
- Mobile
- Monetisation
- Liveops
- Economy balancing

So- just finished school and am now back in the market for one of these job things. Looking to get into networking. Have CCENT and Net+ (and A+ and some MTAs), and will be testing for CCNA and Sec + by the end of the month. If anyone has advice or a line on something in the Seattle area (preferably south King County), shoot me a message!

Congrats on finishing school. I'll drop stuff your way if I come across it. I look pretty regularly on the King co and Seattle city sites and there's usually a post or two there.

I need to find something junior front end stat. I got laid off last year and did a contract in the interim, but that dried up and I haven't had many hits. I feel like a damn bard, lots of general knowledge but I never specialized in any part of the stack so I fumble my interviews. I'm having self confidence issues now - which doesn't make the damn search easier.

I kinda wish I would have just stayed in IT instead of going the front end route, but now I'm in my 40s and it really doesn't seem like I should be taking a different path (again).

Keep looking, we just hired a jr front end guy. The hard part is finding the gigs that are open - we are a everyone-is-remote company, so our job postings end up in random metro areas looking for talent that wants to work from home full time.

My current manager, the only manager that has actively done shit for my career, just told me today that she accepted a job elsewhere in the company. So, I'll be finding out very soon which manager gets to not understand (and not care) what I do every day.  This also leaves me with no idea where I'm working next year (AGAIN).

 Yay.
