My wife and I are getting requests from friends at random to play D&D. After picking up the essentials kit and the players handbook, we both made characters. Even if it's just me and my wife, I feel almost nervous and my wife confessed she feels the same. Is this normal? Did anyone else have this weird apprehension before they started playing? We play board and card games on a pretty regular basis, so starting something new isn't foreign to us. I dunno. It's just odd.

What remote desktop client would you recommend for internal network use? (Connecting to my laptop from my desktop, both running Ubuntu 19.10)

@ari literally every experience I've had with Java software is "this is broken why does anyone use it"

Coming from Sass, I thought I'd hate styled-components. I think I still like Sass more, but I definitely see the appeal.

@lunduke I went to your site to subscribe to your RSS feed. The web developer in me wanted to convert your table to a css grid and make it responsive. Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to change a thing about it. My web dev OCD just kicked in. :yay:

Negative Documentation:

A new phrase I'm making, for those times when there's documentation, the documentation is wrong, and you spend an additional 3 hours trying to decypher the mess before finding out that 0 documentation is not the worst possible state of affairs.

When you give a two weeks to your company and the HR director pulls you into her office to understand why, then tells you something will have to change in that department because you're the 6 person to quit that position this year.

What do you think of job recruiters? If these four options don't cover it, leave a reply.

So, some good news and a question.

As of last night, I accepted a position with a new company! 🎉 🎉

This position is actually a 6 month contract position with the possibility of getting extended instead of as a full-time employee.

So my question is, do you think it's better to be a contractor or a full-time employee? I've never actually worked as a contractor before so it's the one thing I'm hesitant about.

Has anyone ever used a company to write their resume for them? If so, was it worth it?

A bit random and very specific, but has anyone been able to serve a gatsby site from a docker container? Been reading over the gatsby docker image documentation this evening and trying to just use the node image but no luck so far.

I know, I know, I'm super late to this game but..... is freakin' awesome.

Started a new job just under a month ago and have yet to do any real work when I had my dev environment setup and ready to go on day one (thanks Linux). That plus the fact that the culture isn't really a great fit for me, I think it's time to quietly start looking yet again....Ugh....😑

For the web devs / software engineers out there. What do you think of timed coding tests in the interview process? I'm a front end dev and just bombed a coding test getting 1 out of 3 questions correct dealing with array manipulation that I've never used in real life before. I have no doubt this will cost me the interview because I didn't know these more obscure problems. But I want to know what you think.
