@InternetRooky are you my former boss 🤣 this role though, if I fucked up in a decision or advising someone else, could result in civil and/or criminal penalties at the individual and/or corporate level depending on severity of the fuck up, & the company fucks up A LOT as it is so lol nooo thank you. He said the chances would be “pretty low” & I said “that’s still too high for my comfort, though!” Tbh for months I’ve been wanting to switch to the trades too
@BlackFish probably the least helpful reply, but I know some retro video games of the ‘80s and ‘90s were written using assembly, so if that’s of any interest to you, it might be worth checking out. I think the Sonic Genesis games for example were written in assembly, except for Spinball, so maybe messing around with the ROM code to see “what happens if I do this?” could help?
@InternetRooky someone at my job blatantly ignores my questions but copies me on emails related to my job function so which is it, lady? 🤣 she’s not senior leadership but works under a member of it so I guess that plays into it? Like don’t bother me then if you’re just gonna ignore my advice that YOU asked for!
@InternetRooky agreed wtf, doesn’t sound like any zoomers I know! Not that they’re disrespectful people, but IMO they seem way more in-tune with sticking by their worth/not putting up with wage slavery just because and working to change the system. Maybe it’s just biased towards who the person knows in their circles
@InternetRooky thank you!! I actually found her pleasant to talk with so idk why all the intimidation!! 😅
But after my second discussion (with my former boss, and my potential boss - both who know me well and I them), and a panic attack during lunch, I’ve decided I will bow out of the process. The role isn’t quite what I thought it would be and there is too much liability and risk that I’m not comfortable accepting for any amount of pay at this time. 😖

Development git is here:
@Wetrix just watch this video from the reddest part of Florida (Matt Gaetz’ district for context). This county is basically “Lower Lower Alabama” 😬 the person they are yelling at is Asian-American on the school board
@Wetrix because of COVID (“China virus”, “Kung Flu”, etc); because they associate all Asians/Asian-looking people with China and China = Communism and Communism = anti-Americanism (same as anti-socialist hate and rhetoric, e.g. remarks about Venezuela and/or Cuba); because of the stereotype that “all Asians are smart” and take spots away from white students in uni, etc
@InternetRooky I never thought about this aspect of immortality before 😳 then again, I’m already exhausted from this finite life! 😅
@InternetRooky lmfao it’s not Firefly! I’ve never actually seen it (yet)! But if I told you what the show was, I’d probably nearly doxx myself, since it’s so niche. 😜 I’ve thought about doing an anonymous blog for the show, but I like the way some podcasts play one or two few-second clips to emphasize a scene or important point and I’d love to be able to do that as part of the analysis every episode.
@krock 🤣🤣🤣🤣 I am laughing but tbh I’m sure someone out there is legit trying to make something like this a reality to market to big pharma and consumers - “no need for invasive colonoscopies! No need to mail your stool sample in a box to a lab! Want to know what triggered your IBS last night?” etc
@krock right? “Oh if you have nothing to hide then that means I can read through your diary, right?” Or “if you have nothing to hide, can I read all your texts on your phone right this second?” Most would object to any of those questions - so why not have the same reaction to your data being sucked up by Google, etc. or when you willingly give it to them?
