On Coding Style

camelCasing or
Hungarian Notation -
many style options.

Merits and bitches
abound regarding each type:
endless pedantry.

The bottom line, though:
Lisas don't care, but for the
Love-- be consistent!

There were 4 methods in the class. One took a variable called eventid, one with a variable called EventId, one with a variable called eventID, and one with a variable called str_EventID.

On ineptitude

*headdesk* Really, is
It THAT hard to comprehend
“add logging statements”?

I swear to god, it should not require a 30 minute conversation in response to the statement “Take this list of methods and add logging statements to them.” Have some freaking autonomy, dude ><

On Authentication

by ssh key is not
"bypassing," wanker.

The most boring training I've had the displeasure to sit through

Given the choice 'twixt
Sex and SAS, the instructor
Would choose SAS, I think.

I wrote on the evaulation that he was clearly very knowlegable...but I kinda want those 2 days back.

On Development Environments

Locking up for 10
minutes after completing
a build? So not cool.

Developing on a Virtual PC sucks. It's slow. Especially when Visual Studio locks up after every time I do a build, and completely crashes about 1 in 10 times I build my solution. Don't even get me started on how long it take to do a check-in -_-

Not so you can throw lightswitch raves!

Trance songs: so much love!
But must you have such lengthy
intros and out-tros?

On bowing to the bureaucracy

"Comply verbatim"
"A questioning attitude"
Which one will it be?

Faulty procedures
can't control all those gallons
of nuclear waste.

"Shut up, just do it,"
they say. We say--at least it's
on the other coast.

On my pervasive good luck

Exploded all over me
Hulk hands; do not want!
