  1. That's one of the crazier parts. Mud Rain. A few years back, on July 4th, we had a haboob come through and rain at the same time. It looked like I took my truck muddin... My first one was weird too. I didn't know it was going on, the wife and I decided to have a few beers, so I ran to the grocery. Got out in the parking lot and I was getting sand-blasted. It was dark, so I couldn't see what was actually going on, just thought it was windy...
  2. AZ is like mini-Australia. Half the wildlife will hurt you. Something like 13 of the 16 venomous snakes in north America live here. Most of the wildlife you see will absolutely jack your day up. I have Tarantulas that live in the yard. Scorpions in the house. Javelinas, Bears, Coyotes, even Mountain lions are common in my parts. The plants will even jack you up.
  3. Coming through San Diego county is crazy. 65 to 110 just within a few miles when you come over the mountains...
  4. Truth. There's a reason I-17 North becomes a parking lot in my area every Thursday and Friday... When I moved here, I drove across 40, then down 17 from Flag. There was snow on the ground in Flag, probably 30 degrees, and it was 85 when I hit Anthem...
  5. I'm still trying to get people to just run a report using native functionality and not manually enter 500 data points because they "don't trust the system", even though they're literally copy and pasting from said data points... SQL is a thing for a reason...
  6. This is the truth. I'm more on the consulting side now, but it's really the same. Client : This is what we want to do. Me: Here's the best, most efficient, most effective way to do that. Client: We don't like that Idea, do it this way. Me: Okay, but that's not the best, most efficient way and we'll probably need to revisit this. Client: We know what would work best for our business. Lets do it our way. Client: We're having problems with that thing we asked you to do. Me: That's because it isn't the best approach. I suggest we do it the best, most efficient way that I suggested earlier. Client: No, lets try this instead... Client: We're still having issues. What do you suggest? Me: I suggest we do it the way that I originally suggested. Client: Fine, lets just try it your way... Me: So, it's still working fine? Client: Yeah, working perfectly. Why didn't you suggest this in the first place?
  7. Can't. I work within additional software, and we're limited by that. I build out rules and plugins, but they're all called by the bigger software. And since the system is Client/server, we can only do certain things with the API/SDK. They keep saying that they're moving to a web service, which would free us up to dev the way we need to, but until then, we have to stick within what the system will agree with...
  8. Python is. I've heard a lot of Ruby talk lately too. I had a horrible run-in with Java when I was in college, and because of that, I hate it. At work, we use a lot of VB (sucks), JS, and C+ of all things. But, we're working with a lot of Windows forms, web apps, etc... And it's not by choice, just due to compatibility with the larger framework we work with.
  9. I test my wife's esophagus all the time. This was a great set-up...
  10. I once smoked weed with Method Man and Redman. True story. I also hung out with The Game one evening, and introduced my artist buddy who ended up selling him a painting.
  11. This is why I'm so hesitant to reward bad behavior. The Dems are just as guilty of protecting the billionaires as the GOP is. They're just nicer when they do it. I've stayed away from posting, tried to stay away from politics for a hot minute. This is why someone like Bernie would never be allowed to win the nom. It's always going to be someone who can protect the status quo. I'm voting this year just to give McSally the boot and to make sure that Sheriff Joe doesn't make a comeback, but outside of that, I could care less at this point. Both sides are problematic. One is certainly worse than the other, but that's not a good enough reason.
  12. Please do. You don't even have to be the best, just be able to pump out a handful of scripts and you'll be good. Plus, if you can't write it, reading it becomes pretty difficult...
  13. Yup. Recommend a Gig switch. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/netgear-8-port-10-100-1000-gigabit-ethernet-unmanaged-switch-blue/8974018.p?skuId=8974018 If it isn't POE, that's not really an issue since the Accesspoints come with a POE injector.
