[00:52:15] <AzumaHazuki> and people wonder why i have a dumbphone and do all my banking face to face, what little of it there is to do
[00:54:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> not really. i've been doing financial code among other things since the mid-90s, which is why i will not use anything but a prepaid card from wal-mart online.
[00:55:07] <AzumaHazuki> so this is your fault :v
[00:55:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, my contributions were minor and isolated.

[00:55:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> but i'm damned good at it and still write bugs. the kids they hire today are NOT damned good at it and think they don't.
[00:56:02] <AzumaHazuki> did you see the giant-ass Magento vuln a few days/weeks ago?
[00:56:21] <AzumaHazuki> stuff like that makes me thank my lucky stars I got the hell out of tech...hoping to hold onto this pharmacy position
[00:56:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> nope, been busy doing my village people impersonation. construction worker.
[00:56:38] <AzumaHazuki> ...huh, not the fake Indian?
[00:57:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah. that wouldn't help turn a church into a house. maybe a really nice fire but not a house.
[00:57:11] <chromas> Hanging out at the YMCA lookin' out for young studs
[00:57:55] <AzumaHazuki> young man / pick ya-self off the ground, I say / young man / there's no need to feel down o/~
[01:02:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> home depot, actually. apparently tennessee has no mexicans. or anyone else who wants to work for that matter.
[01:02:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> it ain't just the parking lot thing. you can not hire day labor here. like not at all. even from temp agencies.
[01:03:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> i was going to pay $10/hr if they knew fuck all, more as their skills/knowledge warranted.

[22:46:50] <Bytram> load should not matter. Single feed to youtube which then forwards to however many viewers. 25K should we *well* within YT's capability.
