I share that part of my space with the fax machine, the copier, the water cooler, a storage cabinet and the microwave [...] I'm often edgy and exhausted at the end of the day

I find it helps to banter with visitors. When David comes by to copy some papers, call over "Dave! Makin' copies!" Switch things around to avoid boredom like "Davey wavey! Makin' copies! Copies for The Dave Man! Copytopia in Daveland! The Davemeister whips out the copies! Copyrama and a Dave-alama ding dong! Dave!"

You'll also become more popular with your coworkers.

    [LanX]: not my code ...
    [choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
    [choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
    [Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
    [LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
    [LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
    [Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
    [LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
    [LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
    [LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
