    i'm so freakin frustrated right now.... i'm ready to walk out of work right now.

    to make a long story short, developer A left a project half done so he could go on vacation for 2 weeks... and he's not even going anywhere. he's at home for 2 weeks. wtf? if i even attempted to take a vacation halfway through a project, i would basicalyl told to sit the F down and finish my shit before i can go.
    now, i'm the only other developer in the office besides the one who left who knows php. everyone else is a microsoft whore... so, i'm the only choice to finish this up.

    stack this onto my 4 other on-going projects, new stuff coming in, a stack of papers on my desk, and all due at some point this week...

    sure, no problem.... i can handel my shit and get it done...

    but the real problem here, is that his code fucking sucks. i can't find a god damn thing.
    i've spent ALL MORNING looking for MY email address. I got an email this morning, and someone didn't want to get copied on it. Sure, no problem... i'll just find the page that sends the email and remove her name.

    3 hours later, i've yet to find her, or my email in the script...
    and its a whopping 5 pages big...
    its just not there.

    theres no email table in the database.
    nothing

    so fucking frustrated.
    i'm ready to call him because i can't find a freaking email address.

    rediculous.

    and then theres the changes and other requests that came in for it... none of which i have a clue how to start.

    to even ask him to upload code from his work is just stupid. talk about the fast track to getting fired.

    maybe if you would stop bitching on the internet, and actually DO some work, you wouldn't be so backed up... :p

    :ph34r:






    seriously though, 2 week paid vacation, and he's not even going anywhere. That's bullshit.

    I was just thinking of something i would do in perl to handle this for me, maybe you can do it in php or something..
    HERE
    I made this because someone was installing webAdmins all over and this was a quick way to find keywords in the file.
    It searches by extension, and then by keyword.
    I'm doubting you're on linux, but you see where i am going with this?
    Maybe read all the files into an array and scan thru that?

    nope, he's puffin again.

    Either way, I know how you feel, B. People taking vacation all the time leaving shit unfinished, then when you want to take one you get cockblocked cause you're the only one who actually knows shit.

    the guy got 2 weeks leave because of something that all pre-25 year olds must learn :

    Tenure.


    I was nailed to the wall because I didn't include Labor day as a project day, and wound up 4 days late on a project. That week, the admin took a 2 week vacation in the middle of our 6 person email alpha-testing conference.

    He had Tenure.
