I'm lucky to have a mom who's a bookkeeper, so she helped me keep my books this past year.
I did it all myself, but I've regularly called her like "does this money go here or there in the books?"
Keeping track of your incomes and expenses isn't the hard part, the hardest part is what you should declare when and where on what form.
I really despise HR
I never had to deal with (actual) HR.
Only guys who also did the occasional HR thing like whatever it is HR does because HR wasn't really a thing in those companies.
I don't know where you're from (Singapore?), but perhaps HR is different there than in the Netherlands?
The only thing I've seen HR do in a company where I was contracted, was mess up vacancies, like spice it up with utter nonsense because they thought it would be more appealing to programmers.
In any case, employees in the Netherlands are protected by various laws, like you can't just fire people (especially not on the spot, unless you have criminal evidence), you can't set them back in salary, you have to keep paying them even when they get sick (up to two years or something), and lots more.
giving that money in return for an asset or giving to the government and getting nothing but a receipt in return?
The eternal struggle!
Do I buy these two quite expensive monitors that I really don't need, but for which I get a tax exempt or do I keep my money and give half to the government, making the difference rather small? (spoiler, I bought the monitors and I love them)
should it go wrong
I doubt it will, I'll always have some income and if it really fails I'll always be able to go back to being employed.
I'm young, but I've spread my risks and already kind of build something for myself.
So actually, it could fail, but I'd never really need to recover, perhaps I'm just winning less
anyway I say follow your dreams,
Well, that's the hard part.
Is it my dream (right now) to build a company, or is it my dream to learn from great coworkers and have plenty of spare time on the side?
I now have opportunities for good jobs, but I'll always be able to build a company
Thanks for the advice though, they're all words of truth and wisdom
That was not really a hand start. He probably just made sure that the rotor did not get banged up in transport and moves freely. Also, the motor is probably a little stronger and can deliver quite a kick when it's started too abruptly. Newton's third law. When the rotor already is turning, you can go easier on the throttle and give the tail rotor time to compensate for the sudden momentum at the rotor shaft. Noobs often manage to turn around the helicopter 180 degrees by starting too abruptly before the tail rotor has a chance to compensate.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I'm not sure, but with a name like MASTER BOOT RECORD and song titles like MSDOS.SYS, IO.SYS, Dram Refresh and System Clock, I'm guessing this guy (or guys?) is in IT.
Their bio on last.fm reads "486DX-33Mhz-64mb processing avant-garde chiptune, synthesized heavy metal & classical symphonic music. 100% Synthesized, 100% Dehumanized."
And that pretty much sums it up.
It's surprisingly easy to listen to though and I've listened to it a lot this past week.
I don't have a particular favorite song as it's all pretty great.
Oh yeah, it's all mostly instrumental, so it's pretty nice to have on the background while coding.
It seems they put all their albums on YouTube, so if you like this song I recommend checking out an album.

And the number one thing the Visual Code update gives us this month is;
New product icons
We've updated all of our product icons to be uniform in style, color, and size. We went through various iterations and the community was helpful in providing feedback through every step of the process.
Whew sure am glad they got that straightened out!
