Respect, bro!



  • Here's a story from Michal Chaniewski that I thought was definitely worth sharing ...

    So we were on that project in Wroclaw. Our client invited us for a dinner to LaScala restaurant on the town sqare. The restaurant was quite calm and quiet, but, as it sometimes happens, at the nearby table there was sitting a bunch of gentlemen, you know, with wide necks and lots of gold chains. They were using their mobile phones a lot, telling things like That guy on the truck is one of us or Take the BMW and drive it to Siergiej.

    Our guys tryed to talk calmly and not to get their attention. Suddenly there is a phone call to Matt, somebody has some problems with a daemon on a production server, and Matt says: If you can't do it the other way, just kill him.

    After the call, one of the genlemen turns around, looks at our guy, and says: Respect, bro!



  • What country is that? Poland? Ah, there's no place like Eastern Europe... :-))

    I wonder what they would have thought had the call been a bit more involved, like say, dealing with a super-daemon with many child processes:

    -- "Just kill him.  Yeah, make sure you get the children too.  As a matter of fact, kill the children first, one by one.  No wait, just kill him, that'll take care of the children for sure."

    He he he. :)
