    Data data data..collecting reams of data is a waste of time if you won’t believe it, analyze it and use it. Big data is paralyzing ..rant over

    was expecting a shipment of large OD pipe coated in concrete.
    the type of shipment that requires an actual yard crew with a crane operator and at least 3-4 certified riggers to offload and stage.

    specifically requested a 24 hour notice from the supplier so i can arrange for this crew to be in the yard ready to roll.

    i got less than 1 hour notice.

    Word of the day Fuckery.....

    Fuckery - when your company loads a new version of the software into the system overnight and hoses everything 1 week from taking your client live with their implementation.....

    Nostalgic. When I was a little kid I used to watch Looney Tunes on Saturday mornings. While I work quite a few Saturdays to get things done, the organization that I work for itself is almost never open for business on Saturday. Today it is, and while I don't have to do much besides wait a lot with occasional bouts of hurry up, I'm basically watching Loony Tunes again.

    Problem is it doesn’t. We’re still trying to fix and test bugs for load into the production environment at the end of this coming week and they load this shit into Dev fucking all our prep and testing. On top of that this new release doesn’t go into Production for another month so now I’m across two versions....Fuckery

    Hell I couldn’t even get into Dev this morning to do any testing. I’m sure no one is monitoring the support site....

    By the way, let’s rebuild one of the servers, leave out some critical shit, and not tell anyone we’re doing that at the same time we are rolling out the new version... double the Fuckery

    *gets on soapbox*

    I know my situation isn't the same as everyone else, especially those with kids and a spouse and the responsibilities that go with it, so I'm not getting into specifics.

    But I've seen (and loved) too many people who were going to work full time until 65 (or longer) then had all of these big plans they were going to do someday, until "someday" never came. They worked for decades, made plans, and life got in the way. I'm not going to be one of those people unless "life" comes for me soon.

    I'm going to semi-retire at 55, as in offer myself for contract work, part time, and temporary gigs. I've already begun laying the groundwork since I'll turn 55 next year. I don't plan to sit on my front porch for the rest of my life but if the worst case comes and the jobs dry up I'll be okay until 75 (at least). I'm not concerning myself with my income at 80+ since too many of us never see those years, and most people I've seen at that age aren't physically up to doing a lot anyway.

    Live while you're able, because "life" can significantly change tomorrow (especially once you're over 50).

    This is pretty close to the Jagdaddy and wife plan, although we're just a little bit younger and about 5 years out from execution.
