Milk of Human Madness, Jule-tide edition
Ok, in between technical time, it's time to review some goofy stuff while we wait for Santa. Here goes...
1. Can't manage to find time to do something useful...
yet have plenty of time for "time management"?
Sound silly? Have a look at Pomodoro
Technique. Great for giggles, as a case study for human insanity.
But if it starts to make some sense at any point, do not hesitate to get some professional help. Immediately.
But then again, there are always some co-workers who might benefit others by such techniques: by not having time to do anything, they could not make mistakes. And that's worth something too (brakes for loose cannons).
update: above comments are just related for application of said technique(s) to software development -- maybe other domains could benefit from intrusive regularly-scheduled interruptions (perhaps augmented by electrical shocks)
2. IRC? Yes, that thing hackers use when they don't want to be overheard!
Oh yes, you can always trust Numb3rs to get technical things FUBAR. Funny stuff.
Now, if you will excuse me, I will have to disconnect from my blog server before connection can be traced by FBI (it's that 30 second rule you may know from movies -- must triangulate fast -- gotta go!)
