Quality first post 10/10.

Weak vocabulary. That shit's like 600 level on sat verbal

I am highly curious as to what gome listens to cuz I thought he was part of the geezer rock crowd. I remember going to a Dream Theater concert in SF in high school. Whatever you think of their music they're all extremely talented. I remember Mike portnoy's set being more like a fort. Couldn't understand why there were three bass drums until he started playing

I listen to a whole lot of genres, really. From Chopin, to Broadway shows, to Grunge rock (no Rush). I'm not going to deny DT's talent, which I know is strong, but I don't feel like their music has any soul. Feels like they make songs based on a recipe, and by the book they give you in music school. Insert technical guitar solo here.

Might I begin by saying that I thought there was more of an aire of gallantry, and polish that would exude in the
vernacular used by my fellow brethren in as far as commentary goes on this website.

Even a first class Brooklyn degenerate gutter rat such as myself is able to rise above some of the inane dreck below.

Bravo...

this is the song that really got me into DT. It's basically their original band with a different bassist.

I have to somewhat agree that while they're virtuosos the music is hard to connect to if you're not really into it and it sounds like a really long solo. But I've seen a few live performances and they always look like they're having so much fun and just jamming. But I don't know about a recipe. The songs tend to have a really unconventional structure and the motif progression is rapid. They tend to repeat but there's always something aurally new to hold your attention

I could never "get" the jam bands either.

Just looks and sounds like a lot of fun to me

So let's look at the scenario with your additions:

Young guy, on the job one week, pushing "newer stuff."

Old people, happy with old technology, established employees.

Do you not see where my advice still fits perfectly? Best way to get people to change is to convince them change is good. Best way to convince people IRL is to let them get to know you before you start telling them how they're doing it the old fashioned way. I know this will grate on you but this task is easily accomplished through relationship building and will be almost impossible to accomplish without it.

It's not that cookie-cutter, and I think you're seeing it from the viewpoint of a non-technical field and with a lack of information. This isn't a new email client. This is like vacuum tubes vs. transistors. They already know the benefits. I'm not the guy who's forcing them to change, I'm just the guy who's implementing the changes. I couldn't give a shit one way or another if they use the changes or not. If after I'm gone they decide to pull all the vacuum tubes out of storage and throw away the transistors I couldn't care less.

Who I am factors in very little, but regarding that: it may be surprising to a lot of people here, but the Internet and this forum aren't very indicative of people in real life. I'm easy to get along with, especially professionally. That's why I tend to get these types of projects -- I regularly need to meet new people in new companies and work with them -- and I'm successful at what I do. This is the first situation where it seems like everyone wants to just pretend nothing's going on. I think a lot of it is just a combination of workplace complacency and mild autism. Seems like the COO has been trying to get this stuff done internally for a while and eventually just got a hired gun so he wouldn't have to deal with it anymore.

I can only speak for myself but my online persona matches up perfectly with my real life ways. In fact sometimes in my own private vernacular I call the Reply Box the Truth Box because the truth of my ways is manifest there.

That sheds more light on it. Yeah, good call, he hired you to take the shit. It's what we all do from time to time.

People who open drawers / cupboards / cabinets to retrieve something, only to walk away with them still open.

What the fuck is the thought process, or lack thereof, there?

You'd think after fifty-some odd years your roommate would have learners better!

Not him. I moved out of that apartment a couple months ago and actually am in the process of suing that fuck face in court.

This is one of my new roommates. He's otherwise a very thoughtful and nice guy who cleans up after himself for the most part, but he has this habit and it drives me fucking insane. Goddamn I miss my Dallas roommate. Everyone pales in comparison.

I need my business-to-be to take off so I can make a lot of money, quit my job, buy my own house, and live alone. Fuck people.
