@SirUncleCid Sorry to hear about crappy day time job
I'm getting better at programming to avoid something like that :>
what do you do if you don't mind sharing?
@mmacedoeu yo, i just thought of this, would a group Motto or Creed be out of the question?
Like maybe Motto Axiom #1: "We shall always spend at least 30 minutes of day programming or planning for programming, everyday, sick or well, no matter the circumstance"
I'd just thought like a set of group standards would be interesting to have
whatcha think?

@Evaderei I currently work at a deli where I do a lot of their "chef" stuff. It's really called a "fresh foods" department, even though most of the food is hardly fresh shrugs
but it's hard work for the amount I get paid
Victor
@Evaderei
Feb 14 2016 13:17
@SirUncleCid you feel like you're underpaid for the value you provide?
Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:17
Absolutely
I also have tons of experience doing that stuff
And if I left, they'd be hurting for a long time
Victor

@SirUncleCid

Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:21
Nah, however, I sent the email with my resume 'n stuff
Got a reply back like.. 10 minutes later lol
So, maybe not much
However, it's like.. "Temporary, with the possibility to become permanent part time or even full time"
Victor
@Evaderei
Feb 14 2016 13:22
That's not bad
Temp so you can build up portfolio/experience while sustaining income
getting perm == more job security
Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:23
Hells ye
It's something I can put on the resume
I won't have to say like "Ummmm, I never had legit job doing programming"
Victor

Robert Saunders

They were both there. Lots of factors played into all of that.
But, simply
I didn't do good in college because I was smokin' way too much lol
Victor
@Evaderei

Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid

Left college, ended up in some job where eventually I was getting paid good money, but was leaving my body in terrible shape
Moved to harder drugs.. and now I've moved away from all that and I'm back trying to do what I want to do
Victor
@Evaderei

Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:32

Found some douche spamming about macros

Victor
@Evaderei
Feb 14 2016 13:32

Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:32

Well, that's the thing.. earlier they didn't have all of that awesome detection
"awesome"

OCR
Victor
@Evaderei
Feb 14 2016 13:33
ocr?
Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:33
Optical character recognition
And a few other really cool algorithms
It was scripted in Pascal
Then we moved on to bigger things
We went into actually modifying the client, and hooking certain variables that were useful to us
Victor
@Evaderei
Feb 14 2016 13:34
oh snap
Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:34
We did that in Java, naturally, since the client is also in Java
Victor
@Evaderei
Feb 14 2016 13:34
so this is what you meant by programming since 15 haha
right
Robert Saunders
@SirUncleCid
Feb 14 2016 13:34

I used to live in a really boring area. So, this was a hobby I picked up
:D The beginings of my Simon App
