Hello Discipulus,

thank you for your (in part ;-) uplifting words. Another fun fact: after being fired (yes, that's true, even when at last we quit the contract in mutual agreement) I was sent a christmas parcel from the company, bakery within, and a greeting card, reading:

No matter whether you have been with us for years or just a short time, you are part of the $company family.
And a family sticks together, even in turbulent times like these!

Fuck yeah, family. Meaningless blabber, internal marketing speech.

What you say about the moneycentric approach is so true, more so if a small company is stuck like a tick to the automotive or communications industry or both, where their income ist just a negligible record in all the money moved by those molochs, but their services crucial to functioning; and my income in turn also was a negligible part of the overall money that small company is moving. They are able to spit out experienced people because of the success of those people; computing is commodity, as are programs. We automate ourselves out of existence, in a way. After all, things like npm are so easy, right?

Today, people rather stich together FOSS to keep their technical debt small (which is good), but they aren't aware that they buy that with increasing external dependencies and are implementing a brittle fabric of disparate components which gets bigger, unflexible and more difficult to oversee, manage and adapt, without expertise and capacity to look under the hood of the components.

Outsourcing key components of the business never is a good idea, they must stay in own hands, be simplified as much as possible, flexible and robust. I've seen things going wrong for a long time now, spoke up and wasn't heard, and my following silence was held as consent, which ain't.

And no, I'm not guilty of anything. Well, unproductiveness may be. But why so? My programs run, they produce revenue, but $company decided that the rent from them is all theirs, not mine anymore, at all.

So, again, good riddance.

I might be doing computing stuff in the future, but only in educative, curative, palliative and subversive ways.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'
