So it's been like 11 years since I was here reading posts daily and participating in the odd thread and my life has changed quite a bit and probably most of yours too.

So what do you all do now for money? What're your jobs?

I'll start:
Worked for local marketing companies as their business development managers and was recently laid off due to struggling times in the city. Now I work as a website administrator / IT Technician for a small RV company.

Serious question.......


In a relatively long-term job such as that, where you're seated most of the time, have you developed any physical ailments? One of the reasons I steered away from IT later on in my career...... bunch of fat fucks in the field, riddled with dabeetus and high cortisol levels in the body all the time.


Naw, fuck all that. Glad I left.

As someone who is doing IT and Website Maintenance, I have seen a lot of chunkies in the industry.

I myself have a bit of extra weight but that's mainly because of my dependence on sugary caffeinated drinks. I wouldn't call myself a "fat fuck" but more of a "dad bod".

The key is to just keep walking whenever you can.

i had a 5 hour long meeting yesterday to plan something that wasn't even defined. nobody is clear on whether we're refactoring the current site or writing a new one from scratch. I've watched enough rewrites fail to know better than to go down that road again and I think I've convinced the CEO that we need to spend a long time refactoring before any new features or UI is possible. Account managers want something they can sell to the client - which in their mind is only new features or a new UI. But those take exceedingly long to implement because the current system is copy/pasted code everywhere, 3 different backend frameworks, 5 different frontend ones, none of which are used consistently... but tons of custom business logic that has been implemented over the years that is all but guaranteed to be lost during a rewrite.

And they think a rewrite will take 6-12 months, for a site that's taken 15 years to reach its current state. It's a complex site - tons of different forms and data processing routines, cron jobs that handle syncing data between different servers and creating reports, etc. But the actual user interface isn't that complex and all the managers are idiots who think that reimplementing the interface will "just work" without regard to the backend. And they don't think that having a faster, more maintainable site that's not massively open to SQL injection attacks is "not a selling point".

I expect to be the primary person working on this... I have to come up with an estimate for... well, it's still unclear whether they'll even accept a refactor but that's what I'm going to estimate. As far as I'm concerned the project has accumulated a ton of technical debt and it's time to pay. When I say that they tell me "I can't tell the client that!" Well do your fucking job and make up whatever you need to, it's not my job to give clients only good news.
