Tesla might legitimately go out of business.

It would take some time but its a real possibility that they have to liquidate.

This whole thing reminds me of a story I read about Steve Jobs running Nexxt computer (or however it was spelled).

The company was going out of business and hes trying to figure exactly which Pantone shade of purple to trademark for the paint on the assembly line.

Context:
-My insomnia and general sleep issues over the last couple of months
-Constantly needing to work from home due to illness or exhaustion.
-Regularly working 10+ hour days
-Brain fog + being forgetful/slow/spacing out
-Not getting tasks done in a timely manner (right before 5pm) most days (Scrum/Agile [a productivity system designed for left brained CS majors developing software in the 90s...] or whatever has been a nightmare)
-Expressing the need to take a break from work to my Creative Director but, at the same time, feeling like I can't because I'm the only full-time production designer on staff since the other one quit a couple of years ago to have a cushy job as a "Graphic Communications Coordinator" at a private Christian school. Also, I have 6 years of professional experience under my belt and I know all our systems & client's quirks better than a temp designer or design intern would.
-We have more work/clients on retainer than ever before.


There's probably some stuff I'm forgetting but that's the gist of it.

Also, no designer in their right mind with 6 of experience or my skill level would work for "peanuts" ($33K~ a year) like I am. So I'm secure in that regard. They would demand $40K to $45K or more. Also, we just hired two new managerial peeps to help out with scrum and close something called an "AGI gap"? And I can't really ask for a raise until we close that gap... Basically we work too slow and we're not profitable because of it. But I'm already whipping up website concepts at lighting speed I can't imagine working fucking faster than I already am.

And sure you might say, "you idiot. find another job." but that would involve building a portfolio from scratch (since most of my client work is sub par imho) and moving to a large city (which I don't have the resources to do right now). So I'm kinda trapped.

Maybe this "sabbatical" will give me time to finally flesh out that portfolio...

I keep a notebook of things I see in my professional travels that I might use for material in a book someday that I update intermittently and tonight I updated it with this but thought it would also be appropriate for this thread:

"Note from taxpayer with personal tax documents: '[Current year] is going to be a great year; I will be working 3 jobs.'"

Also, to sort of poop on the general conceit of this thread, somewhat recently it came to my attention that Jeff Bezos's stepdad (who initially capitalized the comically evil online Wal-Mart) has his own "Fidel took my slaves :'(" story. :lol

It's crazy what kind of bloat gets added to some pages. Thank you, GDPR, for at least scaring the bejeezus out of some companies. I shall enjoy the "EU experience" of pages everywhere, for however long it takes them to weaselword their way around the protection.

Because of #GDPR, USA Today decided to run a separate version of their website for EU users, which has all the tracking scripts and ads removed. The site seemed very fast, so I did a performance audit. How fast the internet could be without all the junk! 🙄

5.2MB → 500KB

They went from a load time of more than 45 seconds to 3 seconds, from 124 (!) JavaScript files to 0, and from a total of more than 500 requests to 34.

Opening the USA today site.

EU experience:


time to fire up those VPNs, m'gents.


Sigh... Two years coming, many more years in planning, and so many of these fools just now start to vet their sites and services for GDPR compliance. Speedy and efficient, that private sector, isn't it?  :doge

Not sure which is worse, being on the xbox support team and waking up monday finding out you've been laid off, or being on the xbox volunteer team and finding out that you do what used to be paid work but you are instead being compensated with toys...

edit: ok i know what is worse, you can always find a new job, but your self esteem? That's harder to replace.

Couldn't you just like...go to youtube and do the same thing?

if they're actually curating content, this would be a real step up for most people. really, your agency in choice is pretty limited. you are being directed through a series of recommendations and social cues.

looking at what is most popular on spotify/youtube i think it's clear "choice" leads people to making terrible decisions.

best part is the developer's justification:

Quote
We wanted to break the stigma of being homeless, and thus we developed a realistic simulator that will allow people from all ages and incomes to feel the heartbreak that is the day to day life of the impoverished and cognitively maligned. The game is an opus to every human being that has fallen through the cracks of society, only to be abused and subsequently forgotten by a world which values wealth above humanity. It is our sincere hope that this game will open the eyes of many to the ongoing oppression of their fellow humans, who are all too often met with a blind eye.

you're not fooling anybody breh

It was founded by Zbigniew "who cares about The Taliban, muh Soviets" Brzezinski so I'd hope it wouldn't try.

Or is this a PRC - US thaw joke because that's also applicable with Big Zbigniew.
