Title: Pressure
Post by: Spunky on April 21, 2006, 04:09:41 pm
Instead of spamming this forum i should actually be working. Our company (www.skanska.co.uk) has very recently won a contract for a multi million pound specialisation ground stabalisation project.

This project is going to be run on the program i'm designing for the company as apart of my 1 year in industry with university.

That means that my program will decide the fate of this multi million pound project and i have a month to finish it in (Been doing it since November and i'm about 60% through and its as watertight as a sive.).

No pressure.

Ever been in a pressured situation?

Is that a royal "My"?

In that case I'm in a similar position. I'm on the build team for the newest version of our main product that's being shipped for testing by one of our biggest customers within a month. The contract is a multi-million pound contract, and it's with a high profile customer. Very high profile. Like everyone knows them high profile :-)

"Becky" is working on his own little poncey help application at the moment, which he's enjoying because his work involves Java and he's working alone. Which is his sort of thing, really :P


But yeah, the gist of it is that I'm part of a small team working on their own scripts that come together to make a patch that is going out to a really important customer. I'm also writing the release notes that goes out to said customer. So yeah, pressure's on. Wheee....

I know i will.


Fuck, i can hardly believe i got placed, it feels like my future is finally falling in place.

I never knew what i was going to become or what i was going to be like.
I always wated to do something with music, or footage, lights..
When i signed up and took the test i knew for sure i had 90 % of the questions answered correct.
Its was quite easy, most were thinks i already knew and stuff.
But even when i left, i had the feeling like i wasn't going to make it.

On the next weeks, i wondered what if i'm not going to make it ?
What if i get a letter saying im not good enough ?!

Wait a year and retry..
Join the army... (wich was i going to do if i didn't pass.)
Study photography...

These things just made me feel fucked up everyday, the choices were so different and i only wanted one thing.

Im so glad i got placed.

You left the forum to persue goals IRL. Seeing as how you've come back, this probably means you failed.

If you can do better, I would love to see. If a site conveys the information across, it's a good website to me. As long as the text and links aren't all over the place, which they weren't on that site.

Alright Mr. Bitchy. It's time we had a talk...You need to sit and think for a second, I know it's hard, but try.

"What if i get a letter saying im not good enough ?!"  << fuck the letter and do something you like instead of doing something you are supposed to like. thats a general statement, i dont know your situation, so i wont lose a word 'bout it.

Title: Re: Pressure
Post by: Frigger on April 24, 2006, 01:52:58 am
well, i dont like the idea. take the future as it comes. i mean, sure, reacting properly and stuff, making the best of the shit thrown at you and so on.
 but "taking it as it comes"?
no. its not a different story whether you like "it".
this whole statement implys passivity. just live along, and hope it doesnt hurt to much.

general positive attitude of course helps in all kinds of situations, especially those you can't control ;), but in the end its still you who is able to decide. theres like one person who decides what to do, and thats, well, you ;/.
and if you dont like "it", than there is an option to change(maybe even preemptively ^^). doesnt mean it has to be easy or anything, but there is choice.

Been talking with Rad on msn. Sorted a few things out and i made all my well due apologies to him. Anybody else with the beef should do so aswell, stop using people as fucking punching bags, i know i have. and its to do with shit outside of the forum.

I've had 4 people die on me in the last year, close close people, death, murder, disease its all came into it, and when i had a really great chance to make things nice and have a nice girlfriend, it all blew up and she didn't even amount to what i had hoped for. I'm not the only one with a shitty story to my reasoning to being so careless of other peoples feelings on this forum. Now this was a nice nice forum, but there is clearly something fucked up about this whole tension and constant flaming each other. I've done a fair majority of it, but others have too. And its a select few. Heres the thing, leave rad alone, everybody is different and he's not a bad guy.

We just seemed to care less about our manners and courtesy to others these last months. And i for one, am changing that. I've explained to Rad that i left the forums because i lost my uncle. Not to achieve anything new. Anything is within our reach with staying on the forums. And certainly manners should already be within our grasp, so lets keep a hold of ourselves and vent with a little more consideration to others. Rad, like i said, i am sorry. And it won't happen again. And if it seems to be happening, ill catch myself on. But i'll be more aware of it from now on.

So should the rest of you, SpeedD and Fallout to name a few.

And here again, for the forum, to make things clear.


MDX and i talked, and i'll gladly accept his apology.

That however, does solve some of the problems, but not all of them.
Im just amazed of how careless people can communicate with eachoter, we're all people and we all have our own shit to deal with.
Think about the things you say before you say it.

Of course, its the internet, who fucking cares right ?

Some people don't care, some people do, whatever, its only logical to know if you keep hitting someone, sooner or later he's going to hit back.

Some might say my posting style is somewhat.. different.
Different people, different styles i say.
But i know when i go to far, and i never post something that would actually hurt a person.
Other than you might think, i post a whole lot less, and more containing than i used to when i just joined the forum.

For me i just posted something about my life, and to get it spit back in my face was already a lot to comprehend.
Then asking for an explanation, and getting told to shut up is a fucked up way to treat a person.

Alrighty Rad...

Well, let's see...

Pretty much every shot I take at you, pretty much everything negative I say about anyone here, is in jest. I'M NOT SERIOUS. I still feel that you're overreacting to the comments made here. But in all honesty, I find you to be quite annoying at times; as I'm sure others find me annoying. But I don't feel that I should "lighten up" simply because you're offended by anything negaitve thrown your way. But, I shall.

In all fairness, I'm quite proud of you Rad, you actually accomplished something. You should be proud of it, but you also should consider what you're saying before you post it.

Go back, read Fallouts post multiple times. All it is, is Fallout poking a little fun at your heritage. Fiindil does the same to Canadians. Frankly, I am quite rude to you, and sometimes downright mean. But typically, it's in responce to something I find to be utterly...stupid. Take my last post for example...I posted in a harsher manner than usual because I felt/feel you were over-reacting to what Fallout posted.

I am truely sorry if I've offended you, and will take...percautions in the future.

My true question is though, why did you not mention that you were offended by such comments before? Surely this is not the first time Fallout, or anyone has made fun of you. Why let it reach this point? We're not that insensitive; if you let us know that you're offended (But not by trying to flame us :P) then we'll probably stop.

Anyhow, this post is FAR from well thought out. So ignore it if you want, I don't care. Maybe we'll both be thinking clearer tommorow.

he HAS mentioned it, multiple times. I won't go find the posts, but this isn't all of a sudden.

However, there's no need to argue over nothingness. Civilization can return to the forums and they can be the frolicsome and joyous place we know them to be at their heart.

I can't help thinking that this is like a relationship, where quarrels are inevitable but getting through them is the important part, and coming out with a fuller understanding of your partner... awwwww.

Post by: Torp v2.0 on April 24, 2006, 11:03:41 am
You should add a multiplayer game instead...solitaire is rather boring when played for too long.

Also, I'm one of the people who doesn't take what you people say seriously, and neither do I take what I myself say seriously*. You may proceed to poke fun at me, but be aware that I will poke back. The stick is not sharp, though, and if I ever poke to hard, do tell.

*that's not to say I don't like a good, serious discussion now and again. I love it. But the main reason I hang around in these forums is the delightful unseriousness. It's a perfect place do de-stress after a hard day of getting up late, doing nothing 'till noon, and having to work an entire 2 hours before I can do whatever I want (yeah, the student life is hard).

I just had a meeting with my main client who i haven't seen for 6 weeks. The ground stablisation work that my program will be running is gona be done on Friday's, saturdays and sundays between 2am and 5am when the reservoir of the hydroelectric plant is at its lowest point.

The work basically is this. Drill a hole in the floor. Shove a tube in and pump concrete in. "fill" the gound up so its as solid as a rock.

My program manages the site, all the drilled holes, the plant that pumps the concrete etc.

T-minus 1 month and i'm 70% through the coding... let alone any kind of testing.

What a thread. The full dose of human emotions and the exciting world of work in just one thread.

Now that my studies (I still don't know the word for the stuff you do at a university, someone please tell me) are finished, I've just started my first "real" job. Not so different from the internships I did so far, but the payment is better. It's in quality management / software testing for a large automotive manufacturer. Aside from writing test documents, it seems like I'll get payed for trying to break software. Wuhaha.
