Re: ** UnhandledExceptionEventHandler :: OFFICIAL LC / CHATTER THREAD **

I think I'm in over my head on a problem I have the most knowledge about so I can't really pass it off to anyone. I'm trying to containerize this really specific environment for software that has like 18 bajillion dependencies, PLUS needs to see a lot of host devices and use a lot of resources from the host, it's super hacky and a dumb problem because this isn't how containers should be used at all IMO. We're just trying to make it easier to package these dependencies into one bundle and ship it. It also relies on alpha-level code from a major hardware company who is probably really good at writing hardware level code but their installation and setup scripts are a complete and total disaster. Can't debug anything there either except dive into their scripts and hack them myself or learn all their weird stupid dependencies and side effects.

But I can't get it to work and getting a lot of weird errors from software I don't know the inner workings of and I can't debug so I am going to probably have to just brute force trial and error until something works which is miserable.

Consulting with hardware vendor probably your best option. My experience has been that they're fine with answering questions about their products. You might describe what you are trying to do and hopefully get some useful feedback.

Mostly dealing with their sales people who don’t even know how to work the ccommand line. Like they don’t even know how to access it. That’s actually why I am containerizing this whole thing, so they can run a demo by clicking a few buttons no matter what machine they’re on.

Their engineers are kind of *******s too. Not Actually, huge *******s from the few exchanges i’ve had from them, not super helpful either. But they’re paying us pretty well for what we’ve delivered so far.

Funny example of an ******* exchange - they were supposed to ship us two servers in november. We just got one a few weeks ago. We didnt want them to take forever to ship the second so we just said ship the components and we’ll put it together.

They literally ship raw components, like **** was needing thermal paste and ****. Wrong power supply. I email the guy saying they sent the wrong power supply, he comes back with “who ever heard of a transformer...?”

It was pretty fun putting together the machine though, so joke’s on them. The funny thing is we’re shipping it back to them so it’s THEIR machines, and they’re being so annoying about it.

You have a very weird job - part project manager, part computer installer, part programmer, part nanny or something.

I'm starting to think every job is dysfunctional. It's only in retrospect that I am proud of what we accomplished in spite of the dysfunction and convince myself it was a good job.
