At the cons I attend, there are so many fandoms present that you don't really see arguments between them, though you might see mock arguments at room parties. At the last con my wife and I attended a party named 'The Blind Pig', I went to the bar to get drinks and the woman said "What house." bzzzt 404 not found Oh. Hogwarts house. We didn't see any indication that it was Potter-themed. Next time I get asked, I'm gonna say "Unseen University- Department of Inadvisably-Applied Magic."
So my job with the 1:10+ hour single trip commute has come to an end!
It's been a fun job with nice people, learned some stuff, taught some stuff, build some stuff, fixed some stuff, and broke a little bit of stuff as well probably
My new job is a lot closer... NOT!
About 10-20 km closer, but when taking traffic into account I'm looking at pretty much the same travel time.
But the working hours are a bit more flexible and I get to work from home about two days a week (and I already have a four day work week).
Hopefully I don't have to get up at 5:00 every morning to beat traffic (and still get in a traffic jam once in a while).
What's more, this company wants to be the most innovative company in the financial sector, cloud only (Azure), bells and whistles, fairies and unicorns
Sounds like a fun learning experience, can't wait to start (next week)
Your manager is installing a keystroke counter today to insure you are producing enough code.
Damm.... I can't find that picture... it is such a "mandatory"...
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.

Make them practice what they preach. If it's all online, try to get them to shift more of your work from home. I've been doing it for 10+ years now (meeting on-site only once a week, and these days down to once a month) and I wouldn't trade it for the world - especially since I'd have roughly the same commute as you've described.
Best O' Luck! , The thing I found when I finally got a job, was the early start (08:00) meant getting out of the pit around 06:00. I'm sorry there is no way I could 05:00...
Been doing 04:00 the past couple of months. I get up and going no problem, I'm crap by the end of the day though as I can't get to sleep till 23:00 - 0:00 so obviously am not getting enough sleep.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I'm pretty sure I would not like to live in a world in which I would never be offended.
I am absolutely certain I don't want to live in a world in which you would never be offended.
