Now we the American working population
Hate the fact that eight hours a day
Is wasted on chasing the dream of someone that isn't us
And we may not hate our jobs
But we hate jobs in general
That don't have to do with fighting our own causes
We the American working population
Hate the nine-to-five day-in day-out
When we'd rather be supporting ourselves
By being paid to perfect the pastimes
That we have harbored based solely on the fact
That it makes us smile if it sounds dope
A couple of friend were in a punk band back in their teens.
Their "hit" song was "9 tot 5" and the refrain was like (translated) "9 to 5, 9 to 5, go to your boring sh*t company!" (five and company rhyme in Dutch, "vijf" and "bedrijf").
The original was "9 tot 5, 9 tot 5, naar je saaie kutbedrijf!"
Pretty hilarious for a couple of teens that never before worked in their life (they all have 9 to 5 jobs now)
Definitely a morning person. Up every work day at 6am and in the office by 8am. My evenings are for relaxing (watching TV / Youtube, listening to music, reading books etc).
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
I had a period like that but then as i got older i slept less and less in general. Now I sleep about 4 hours a night, which means I'm up til the wee hours. I went to bed at 3am last night. it's 8 now here, but I was up by 6:30
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.

Binge thousands of reality TV shows with 30 days free.
Bloody hell they have a streaming service that seems to be composed purely of reality TV shows. You know where they pin the eyes open and force some poor so to watch endless atrocities, hayu sounds like the tool for that.

So one of the tasks I perform for customers at the MSP I contract for is creating user accounts in AD. Did that this morning and as usual I created a password comprised of 2 words concatenated together and stick a number on the end.
I'm a bit of a fan of alliteration, palidromes and the like. Alliteration works well with passwords in my mind anyway. So create a password that will have to be changed as soon as the new user logs in. Complete ticket and email details to client.
Get aphone call from the princess that had the details forwarded from the clients management. Take note that management didn't have an issue, this nancy boy did. He wants the temporary one time use password changed as it is not appropriate.
I didn't know Joe Louis was not appropriate. BrownBomber88 is though, not sure if it was deemed as predujicial to people who are not as pastey white as I am or if it gave him flashbacks to his difficulty of dropping the kids off at the pool.
"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
