So I'm trying this exercise to vent a little steam via a stream-of-consciousness existentialist twitter feed...

How do you all deal with the day-to-day minutiae of corporate life?

Embedding easter eggs in code. There's a few in the latest project I'm working on. Nothing that could be a potential liability. Sometimes the code/program just needs some humor.

 

The best part is obfuscating the code and hiding it so others working on the project don't know about the easter eggs, even if they look at the git logs (unless they very tediously review the logs or decide to print out just the right piece of memory).

I'm reminded of the Underhanded C Contest.

I vent on social networks as well. Most of the time, nobody understands. And that's fine for me.
