How does one deal with a (the) manager that insist your team sits in a specific spot (open landscape battery cages), and throws a tantrum when the entire team books a project room (regularly, like every obligatory office day) to work together unhindered, but plays out that tantrum towards the scrummaster and expects her to convince the team to return to the cages?
For context, my scrummaster is also a close friend and I was the one booking the project room. She now feels she's between hammer and anvil. Manager has not said anything to me in person.. officially I don't even know he threw a tantrum.
Any advice/boosts welcome \m/
He just lost his chance to make a choice.
His 404 notice caught him with his lederhosen down. He waited too long to choose 9front. If he had acted sooner, he would have had his pick of more than 300 ThinkPads. And his choice would have booted. So don't wait. Choose your hardware and get the best drivers (they exist) in the world. On a laptop you can be proud of. There's no better way to actually run Plan 9 instead of just talking about running Plan 9. Your future, your decision ...choose 9FRONT
Hi, my name is Walter.

And I know. I'm forgetting many hashes to put here, but this is ok for now.
Lorinda Cherry, author of dc, bc, eqn has died
Lorinda Cherry received her Master’s in Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology in 1969, at a time when the computer science program was more of a specialized math degree, with some programming courses but little theory. She worked for a few years as a Fortran programmer, but found it “very boring” to constantly write programs based on someone else’s ideas. She yearned to work on systems, but there were few entry points for such jobs: individual labs tended to recruit new graduates and train them in their in-house programming language, and Cherry was already overqualified. She eventually found a home at Bell Labs, where she worked on the nascent Unix operating system, which had not yet made the switch to C when she joined the team. ...

Call me old school, but I make heavy use of bc, and occasional use of dc (I find the RPN somewhat alien), as well as GNU units, which is not based on Cherry's work so far as I'm aware, though I consider it spiritually related. I'd been using bc only a few hours ago.
I had to instruct an old person how to use an Android phone and it went a little like this:
"When the screen goes dark, you need to turn it back on by pressing this unmarked button on the right. Then, when the screen lights up with the clock, a background picture, and no other indication of what you should do, you need to place your finger on the screen and swipe upwards."
When did we decide that this was a good idea?? I might as well teach them how to use Vim at this point.
Plan 9 is not dead.
