whaack: diana_coman: EOD Report: G: Reviewing my article I caught the error in "He found prespective deals". WTI: I will continue to keep a watchful eye for errors where I accidently use a similar sounding / similarly spelt words. But more importantly I will focus on selecting the right words in the first place. B: I didn't read my plan for today in the morning and had forgotten I had set aside a chunk of
whaack: time to handle misc tasks. WTI: I will start each day by reading my plan for the day and create a schedule assigning the tasks to specific windows of time.

diana_coman: - reading/looking at the plan sounds like a basic requirement, lolz; the detailed schedule/assignment of tasks afterwards is entirely up to you - it sounds a bit overkill to me but if it works for you, then fine.

whaack: diana_coman: The more important part is doing something active when reading the day's tasks in the morning. Today I reviewed my TODO list and further specified the tasks I had setout for myself.
diana_coman: sounds sensible.

lobbes: diana_coman: my sticky note reminded me to tell you that I've nothing specific to discuss at our standing meeting today if you've nothing. I'll be working on yardwork and botworks
lobbes bbl food
diana_coman: lobbes: are you happy with how this week turned out? looking at your previous review and hm, no plan, it doesn't seem all that great - the q is: do you have a clear idea what you'll change so that next week improves at least?
diana_coman will be awk for ~1 hour
diana_coman: afk, lol
diana_coman: lobbes: see q above.
diana_coman: jfw: how's the blog writing/review/plan ?
lobbes: re: the plan for last week, I kinda wove it into the review, though maybe this upcoming review I will separate it.
lobbes: My goal for this last week was to get the garage clean, get the hoster nailed down, and then either start setting up the new server or getting the auctionbot fix complete depending on if the server is provisioned. I managed to get garage clean, and hoster is secured. If I get the fixes to auctionbot complete today I will be on track
lobbes: Only target I wasn't hitting was my waking up on time, so I'll plan with this in mind with today's review
diana_coman: lobbes: ah, the additional stuff fallen by the wayside for you was from previous week even, huh.
diana_coman: lobbes: anyways, if you pack them both in one place, then change the title accordingly or something, not like it's forbidden.
lobbes: diana_coman, roger that
lobbes: I'll make it a "review/plan" then, simple enough!
diana_coman: lobbes: are you happy otherwise with the balance saltmines/you work there?
lobbes: diana_coman: no, definitely need to find a new saltmine. Getting unbalanced
diana_coman: lobbes: so at the current rate/plan, when do you estimate you get around to focus on that or how do you see it?
diana_coman: you know, in general lines you should have at least some idea over the longer term too
lobbes: diana_coman: the way my current saltmine is, the first two weeks of each month I have ~4 deadlines to meet (reporting cycles). So I can focus more in the 2nd half. Long term though..
jfw: diana_coman: I've been making progress on the blog article, but slowly, and not like it's going to be some kind of masterpiece for the time. And I'm laughing out loud at how predictable this situation is.
diana_coman: dorion: do you want/prefer to set explicitly some standing meeting too?
lobbes: diana_coman: I need to give some thought to the long term indeed.
diana_coman: jfw: making your own fun there! heh
diana_coman: lobbes: trouble is that "can focus more in the 2nd half" of every month and then tired from the first half and so on, and next you know a year passed and you barely moved otherwise; it sounds rather life draining to me, tbh.
diana_coman: jfw: no masterpieces required anyway, as you well know; but what's exactly stopping you from going faster anyway?
diana_coman: whaack: what's the status with the irc project? in between all the details, the elephant got rather lost or so it seems?
lobbes: diana_coman: yeah, it is slowly burning me out. Ok, I will make sure I make stick to some clear deadline on escape from that situation too
diana_coman: lobbes: how do you plan to escape though? esp since you say you'd rather not go on this sort of things without a plan, no matter what.
jfw: diana_coman: at least on this one I seem to be getting sidetracked on details; looking things up, looking closer at the photos, whether anything comes of it or not
lobbes: diana_coman: Well, atm I've been beginning to train some people on the specific portions of the work I do because I am moving on to some new project.
lobbes: In general I hate leaving places high and dry with no one trained on what I do (even if the company sucks, I usually like the people I work with and don't like fucking them over), so in a few months I'll already have people trained and I'll be kinda in a place to take off
diana_coman: jfw: that sounds more like enjoying the photos/details/topic so ...not bad in itself at all, why not, but why does it have to be instead of writing rather than part of your leisure reading or similar?
lobbes: meanwhile I figure I can just focus on keeping an eye on the remote market (making notes this time) and then start applying for stuff once I get to that point of people being trained
diana_coman: lobbes: well, that sort of training though sounds precisely the type you do over lunch/dinner/social meeting with those people though and at their asking you nicely; because it's one thing to not let *them* being fucked over and another thing entirely to not let high and dry the biz that is otherwise draining you.
lobbes: diana_coman: I can see your point
diana_coman: I really don't see why and how that has to do with the work there; talk to them and let them know that you are available for *them*, sure; after all, you can't have a sane relationship with an institution.
whaack: diana_coman: I applied the fixes that address the problems in the first run and I tested a bot running/logging on my new machine. One task I had setout to do this week (have a way to determine which channels I'm currently connected to) did not get completed but it is possible I can get it done tonight. I think that there is a gordion knot solution to the problem, I can run TheFleet inside of the
whaack: repl in a tmux on my vm, and then just reconnect via ssh/attaching to see the status of my program.
diana_coman: lobbes: for that matter, if you tell them privately that you *have to go* and they have a problem with that because oh noez their own ass, then I really don't see the point in all this "gotta not let their ass down"
jfw: diana_coman: the effort to write about them was what motivated the study, so they're intertwined in a way. I take it I should better separate them somehow
diana_coman: whaack: all right.
lobbes: diana_coman: makes sense. Okay I'll drop this 'have to wait until they are trained' idea. I'll focus instead on just applying to places asap
diana_coman: jfw: if it works better mixed then simply plan it over leisure+writing time, that's all.
jfw: diana_coman: ah ok
diana_coman: lobbes: yes; essentially you can't quite afford that "nice guy" carelesness about yourself that is, btw, pretty much the way you get trained to fuck yourself over.
diana_coman: if you sink, you won't be in any position to help anyone else at any time, anyway; for the obvious.
lobbes: that's true; if I lose agency then I can't do any good for anyone
diana_coman: (and for the possibly not-obvious to the naive: none of those thus helped will "have time" to get you out of that sinking either).
feedbot: << Young Hands Club -- ejb review of Feb 10-Feb 16 ; plan for Feb 17-Feb 23
whaack: I did just as described in my last message. I have a test bot connected to 15 small networks in a tmux. I tried to connect to a larger number of networks locally, but I got put on a global banlist here .
