Which was your favourite time when the CS broke something :holmes:
Well it wasn't a staff member… But the most memorable breakage for me was the time when the Model UN's newly elected chairman (or speaker or whatever) became CA and proceeded to completely wreck the forum, merging a ton of threads and generally making a complete mess. Had to restore the entire thing from our backup database, and ban the twit who went on a power trip. :banned:

Kinda yeah, it gets really warm and stuffy on our side of the office, the station side on the other hand is generally much nicer. And they have more plants and stuff.

but you'd have to sit next to the sales team, so swings and roundabouts :giggle:

It's been 7 years, 7 months and 7 days (coincidence? conspiracy?) since I joined TSR but today is my last day. Ask me whatever you like. :blah:
Don't leave meee!!!!! I will be desk buddyless who will irate endlessly with pointless nonsense and pizza demands!

How many hot munges will you be doing on your last day, and will they involve dumping from production or ordering by RAND?

We can't all be mega-ultra-professional Magento2 developers like you unfortunately. :moon:

My job is writing code, specifically for websites. I'll be moving from TSR to Eurogamer, the latter of which manage a number of magazine-based sites, plus events, job listings, and a few other projects. Money wise I'm contractually forbidden from saying what TSR pay me, but my new job will be near the £50k mark.

My job is to make the website work. I've built tons of stuff for TSR over the years, pretty much any page you visit on this site will have something on it that's been authored or at least improved upon by me. I've also worked heavily on the system architecture that keeps TSR running, including things like data management, caching (saving data for quick access), and so on. It's a big job.

I turned 31 two days ago. Getting old now which is kinda scary. Being a dev can definitely be lucrative if you have the right mind for it, though even a small amount of knowledge can still be very valuable - there's never really a shortage of people wanting to build websites.
