And yet every 90 days I had to go through the same old routine.
Started at this company 254 days ago, still using the same password.
"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
The really silly thing was that they were happy for me to increment the numeric suffix every 3 months. 00 then 11 then 22 etc. when I got to 99 I would just start again. Essentially my password was the same for the last decade.

OK, so I've been playing with the node/angular stack for a month or so now.
And, while it works great for a small project, and while automatic rebuilding and browser page refresh is great when a code file changes, the warts and the slowness of Angular/Typescript builds reveals its ugly head when you have a real project. And the "real" project at work is actually still pretty small.
And then there's the Node version hell -- I had installed the latest version of Node and Angular, but the product doesn't build with Node v.10, throwing some arcane exception in some C++ code (!!!) it has to compile for something in Node, so I had to downgrade to Node v.8, which involved installing the Node Version Manager so I could switch between the two.
The whole thing reminds me of my Ruby on Rails days. But maybe with a only dribble of instead of a full technicolor yawn.
Yeah, there is so much boilerplate... it would be nice to cut down on that.
For bigger projects there is a way to modularize the app, so only specific parts get rebuilt. That being said I've seen some weird things with the on-the-fly re-building of the app - weird errors which go away once you stop and rebuild.
