So I had a chat with my boss, luckily at least the actual people around are generally nice.
He was pretty alright with the way things were going, basically told me to slow down and learn in the early stage of things
Also did some troubleshooting. So moving on from one reason code doesn't work to the next.
Still annoyed and but glad to have direction
I could sense not wanting to dive deep into the new stuff ever since I switched contexts but eventually you do have to start diving deep to get anything done, especially in a complex system
It ties in with something else I read that we burnt out because we procrastinate, not the opposite. Spend so much time thinking and planning that you resist actually doing. And that's what's been happening to me for the last couple of weeks.

I typed out a whole reply but then I fat-fingered the "use mobile version" button and it got et. And it's too late at night to sensibly re-type it!
But, I'm glad to see you all :3

don't worry about it!! hello pokari!!
hope you are doing comfy

I am :3
Super-comfy at the moment even. I am lounging luxuriously in a fleece onsie like a person who, indeed, does not care about appearances in their own home u.u
(Otherwise, quietly plotting dwarf fortresses and home NAS servers. For one the issue is overheating, for the other the issue is an alert system for when things go wrong; I leave guessing which is which as an exercise to the reader :'p )

I have hiked! Into the snow! Which was on one of the nearby mountains because of all the bizarre weather we've had lately!
I am old! My joints complain acutely! But it was magnificent.

42 Yay pokari!
Penrose you are spitting facts. I'm trying to jump out of my current field into another one and I'm... not making any progress. Procrastination.
Boston was supposed to get dumped in snow this week. Instead we got snow for like 2 hours and then rain. So now it's just wet and muddy.

When I woke up I was like, "ugh I hate that movie, why did they make it", "wait that movie doesn't even exist", "it still didn't top Grave of the Fireflies though" in rapid succession and it was honestly pretty funny, the absurdity of which did somehow help me cheer back up again.

44 i just got back from Brazil, Argentina vacation trip where I visited Rios, San Pablo, Iguasu Waterfall, Buenas Aires.
It feels good to be back home where I don't have to wear a headset at night to sleep. It doesn't feel so good to wake up around 4 in the morning
I must have gotten something on the final flight home and I have a small cough now... gosh...
Visited too many football (ie soccer) stadiums , saw too many old school European architecture, ate too much beef.

I hope you feel better soon.

46 thanks for the welcome
can you imagine living in a 4 star hotel for 60 bucks a night?
or all you can eat meat dinner buffet for $30?

I hope you enjoyed your deflation vacation! ^^ Those waterfalls do look awesome.
In other news, I finally have all the parts for my new PC... and I've thrown out my back so I don't dare assemble them. XD Ah, my poor young old aching bones...

I could do the adult thing and get a new fan but I'm leaning towards "I'll darn well make it fit together!" Xp

i want to say im better now 63
also, i'm currently happily playing this game inspired by the tokyo sarin gas attacks... there's a scene where you go back in time and experience the conversations between two cultists about to unleash the canisters of doom upon the train passengers ... this is a cool gothic story with ghosts and time-traveling

I'm really glad you're having fun though :'3
I have just had a hilariously bizarre conversation with the maker of my CPU heatsink (Noctua) where the support person told me "no just screw it in until the board bends a bit, it'll be fine" when I said the stock screws weren't quite long enough.
It was a very unexpected response. They might be correct, but I'm using longer screws instead because WTF XD
'Tis a strange old world out there.
