@Simergence All the things. Boredom is my enemy :)Holy crap. It works.@lusis @fnichol @portertech Bring ‘em. We can film a reality show with all our families: “OSS Preppers”@fnichol @lusis @portertech Who’s ready to move to the hippy farm commune and take up artisanal soybean curation?@puppetmasterd @portertech Enforce the community’s social contract. That we need call out harassment and death threats is depressing.@portertech @puppetmasterd I can’t accept that. If true, all OSS communities would be overrun by assholes which is clearly not true.Sorting keys in Lua tables. Fun? Not really.Can we please go a few months without someone leaving a community over harassment and/or threats?RT if this is one of the weirdest things you've ever seen. https://t.co/mBtpsGNdXr (Courtesy of @JLCT)

Sad it’s apparently rare.@williamsjoe @ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage “Forgive me, Scrummaster. It has been 6 months since my last PTO”@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage ….and company lacks intestinal fortitude to fix bad leader. Been there. Totally sucks.@akahn @ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage Very +1. Hire smart professionals. Expect them to be smart & professional. 2nd is hard for some.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage don’t even get me going on no-meeting days. Sure sign company has no idea how to communicate, IMO.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage my stand ups are not longer than 10 mins. Longer stand ups are sign of inexperienced/clueless lead.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage within limits. In my experience, Unlimited PTO plans are subject to same. IANAL, etc.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage Depends largely on leadership. Sane leads should enforce min PTO for team health & cohesion.@DukeAMO @michaelgorsuch @roidrage otherwise why do the work to build a good team if they’re going to work until they burn out? (2/2)@DukeAMO @michaelgorsuch @roidrage when i’ve led teams I keep track and try to make sure no-one goes too long w/o a break.

Retweeted by Kevin Smith@lusis I’ll need to see a picture of the knife first to verify it’s on the approved list of enterprise cutlery.@lusis did you fax aws the checksum first?@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage NotAllUnlimitedPTO. Depends on having leaders who care about more than shipping.@michaelgorsuch @roidrage no-one taking vacation is a leadership/culture failure. Has nothing to do w/policy, imoSome times, keeping your mouth shut is an act of leadership. Consider whether the group needs what you want to say, and choose. #leadership
