I know Saturday night is excitement time for some, but I think I might finish the Stollen, and pore over my Nazi-influenced cookery magazines. From, as far as I can determine, 1940, the year before the administration banned Fraktur for being "too Jewish." Or I might shift to the scholarly text that explains the context of said magazines - which I acquired by accident. Right publisher/city, wrong era! I was actually after stuff from the DDR, but it's SÅ FASCINATING!
Feeling unusually relaxed (read: not racked with anxiety for a change.) There is a task that seems important enough to drop everything else so I can work on it - and I have just had confirmation that this is the case - I know what I need to do at this stage, and will be working with someone who a) understands the bits I don’t and b) is a very decent person to work with. So feeling pretty comfortable about today.
So happy Friday, all!

Good morning, Fediverse!
How are you today?

@zensaiyuki By the way, thanks for being here. Our semi-random convos breathe life into - somewhat difficult times
And this works because my - manager? - and I just work well together. Someone responsible for entire system design SHOULD get their hands dirty, to get a better understanding of how everything works, and I’m 110% there to support, and patch up everything that gets broken.
Those who get precious about their code - can just fuck off. I despise the word “team” but am very much a social part of the pack. You can’t live with a large number of dogs and not turn out social.
The urgent job today - becomes the urgent-ish job tomorrow. My original code has been broken, but the new structure is how it’s supposed to work, so now I just need to un-bugger the new code. Not only am I totally cool with this, but I actually think it’s a good way to work. Break my code to perform a new workflow, I then debug and patch it up. Versus trying to explain to me a fairly complex change, which isn’t easy with my brain-fog.
