    totally not true i went to seattle in 2013 for a biomed conference and you were 2 busy skiing/burying bodies to hangout and u gave vague promises of meeting up before canceling on me + kacer.

    kacer - a standup guy - came through tho because he is an excellent pal

    Take it - even if it's for only a little bit, having Amazon on your resume in our field is definitely a good look (like a lot of people take a Goog or FB job just to have it on there). Don't let them burn you out though. And don't go on any mountain hikes - I hear that shit gets a little dicey if you catch my drift.

    Also send me a few thousand dollars in AWS credits. Thanks.

    I think I'd take a 9-5 for Amazon in Seattle over working for EA.

    How have you done programming this long without drinking coffee? That's like playing a melee class without a haste item.

    I light my cigars made of $20 bills with $100 bills.

    They taste awful.

    I did 5 months of (unpaid) overtime, got great performance reviews, and then received half my target bonus for my efforts.

    If you want, PM me your org and team and I'll take a look at their ticket queue. I can get a pretty good idea of how good or shitty the team is by looking at their ticket que a bit.

    I usually work 9-5 but then there is the whole on-call thing

    Also Seattle has a great beer scene.

    The coffee is overrated, I'll take Bay area coffee like Blue Bottle and Philz over anything I've had in Seattle. Viktrola and Stumptown are good but yeah.

    Grats on the job Yogr. Even if EA didn't sound awful, I'd take it. Like Utumno mentioned, a big player on your resume would probably make you look like a hot shot and get noticed a lot more. I'd also absolutely love to live in Seattle, I've never been but it resonates with me on a lot of fronts.


    Friendly reminder that Aro is still floundering in his professional life and destroying his body for peanuts, if anybody comes across any prospects or has any advice for a direction to move in.

    You guys look like you could be brothers who were both molested by the same uncle who clearly had an Addam's family fetish of some kind
