    • My buddy Vic just got twitch affiliate status!

      So my friend Vic has been streaming regularly on twitch for a while now. He doesn't get a TON of viewers but he has consistent viewership. He's SO happy he just got affiliate status!


      I think we should show him a little Rooster Teeth love and give him a few follows. Here's his twitch along with a shameless plug of my own after:

    • Today I learned not all asian people know about anime

      borisof007 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold HR Manager, Engineering

      In lesson number "who knows by now" of "why you shouldn't assume" - I asked my coworker, who is asian and literally just came back from Japan yesterday, if they had seen or heard about the Goku Macy's thanksgiving day parade balloon.


      Their response?

      "Who is Goku?" 


      Upon explaining - they had only "heard" about DBZ and couldn't name a single character. So yeah. Don't be like me and look like a fool for assuming. Whoops.

    • Provide(her)

      Not every day in my life have I been given an opportunity to provide for someone else. Most of my life has been trying to take care of myself alongside someone similarly likeminded. With my gf on disability from mental stress, she's been given the gift of free time. 


      She's been thinking heavily on what to do with her time. She'd been thinking a lot about going back to school but wasn't sure when exactly or what she'd be studying. She knew she was really close to completing an AA but just never finished...


      Well I'm excited to say that she's officially enrolled into school for this next Semester in the Spring and if she's lucky she'll be able to register for all 3 classes she needs to get her degree! 


      I'm really happy that I was able to give her that opportunity. Some might ask why I don't do the same thing for myself and the answer to that is a bit more complicated. Were I in her shoes, yes I would totally take that opportunity. However she can't make nearly the same amount of money that I do to support me going to school. When she was working, she was making about 1/4 of what I do.


      But I'm not looking at that. All I can see is how happy I've made the love of my life to be able for her to finish something she wanted so badly at one point. I'm glad I can provide her with the chance and you can bet I'll be helping her too :D.

    • Antidepressants work!

      1 month ago

      borisof007 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold HR Manager, Engineering

      Quick note - my longstanding offer of helping people with career advice, especially in Technology, still stands! Anyone seeing this is welcome to ask me literally anything and I will answer honestly.


      Depression has a funny way of removing you from the things you've normally done (like regularly update here)


      HOWEVER


      I have been retooled. Rebuilt. Better, Faster, Stronger (/dance)


      Basically I've started anti-depressants and I think they're working? It's such a weird feeling. I physically feel a change in personality and it's not negative or even mellowing me out. I actually feel happier. It's the weirdest fucking thing - like I haven't been me for the past idk how many years.


      Anywho - I lost my job at Indeed but I got a new job...literally across the fucking street. I work for Instacart now! Not grocery shopping (although they make all new employees do 1 shift of grocery shopping so the corporate employees know what it's like) - I'm still doing what I get paid most to do - hire people WAY fucking smarter than me. And that's not even self deprecating humor, that's just fact. But I am fairly happy where I'm at now. Indeed was nice, but with no onsite manager in an island of engineering and you can get lost in the mix like I did. Here I'm actually at HQ with proper support and tools. #feelsgoodman


      My longstanding offer still stands as it was above. Feel free to ping me if you need career advice in Technology or if by some rare chance you're already in Engineering and are looking for a job.


      I could use a few solid Infrastructure Engineers, Site Reliability kinda folks. DevOps.

      I'm playing Baldur's Gate 2 - a Dungeons and Dragons PC game (2nd edition rules, so super old like me) - on Twitch. I'm currently playing through as a Neutral Evil cleric. 


      You can find my stream along with fun bits there. I'm going to try and record each of my play sessions and edit together just the funny bits and see if I can get those on Youtube.


      Twitch.tv/borisof007


      Any follows would be MUCH appreciated! Views are appreciated too of course. I'll try and update here too whenever I plan on streaming. You can also follow me on Twitter at twitter.com/borisof007 too as I tend to tweet out every time I start streaming.


      :D

      I gave you +3 for having enough sense to realize that in my journal. Fucking Rock! You sir look like a level headed individual. I try to rally the few of those we have struggling through these forums and direct them to the Basement where we only stupid for amusement. Rest assured, we can hold a good conversation if necessary and overall I think it's more fun in there... I suggest you head down and check the place out. Good to have you on the forums. Yo
