work gripes 

after ~24 hours of waiting on the CTO and talking to 5 other people, I finally found somebody who could help with a work-around... nothing going for helping with nonsensical function names and bugs in the other team's code - but at least I'm closer to my goal.

Me: Hey, this thing at work is hard.

Internet Rando: Just restructure your employer's entire tech stack and the organization itself - anyone at the bottom can do it!

I hate Discord, but I love Discordia.

You can't explain it.

gonna make a new Web Dev Framework, where the names of everything are German Kofferwörter/Portmanteaus

gonna rename common javascript concepts, because it'll transpile to javascript and the code it produces will be so obfuscated (via packer) that nobody will ever be able to debug it
