Yeah, same.  It's always bad when a dog dies on you.

"we need to find the right balance" is the styrofoam packing peanuts of things to say in a meeting.

In every planning meeting I've ever attended, some manager or exec lists two possible failure scenarios (usually things that other people just brought up) and concudes "we just need to find a path between these two"

ohhhh shit we got a real brain-genius over here. GOD DAMN, look at those leadership skills.

I usually say "the data is inconclusive", then sit back and watch competing egos fight over the best way to lose your ass.

Make an action item to record these scenarios in the risk register, and then investigate parallel implementation strategies.

I mean, if you don't know what you're doing, just try a bunch of different things.  One of them has to work, right?

I had this recently, I made the mistake of saying "The options are irreconcilable, pick one and do it well", I've never made my bosses angry (to the point of turning red) as telling them they cant have the cake and eat it too.

Well I'm on the job hunting trail again. I've been through three jobs and each for various reasons has not worked out so far. Tomorrow I sign up with the staffing agencies in town. I'm also going to apply at an electronics recycling plant. I'm real good with a soldering iron and have a background in electronic assembly. I could just as easily sort and disassemble stuff.

On a personal note things are still going very well with me and my GF! She's been very understanding of my troubles, and is just an awesome person in general.

My Phablet died. All of my interactions here and on Facebook are going to be through a cheap phone. I do intend to participate more though. As soon as I have stable work I may even be able to help fund some projects. For some reason I can't seem to quit discordia, so I might as well get to participating!

Oh good.  In addition to my shower and my washing machine, now my internet is fucked too.

Dial-up would be an improvement on this
