It’s really incredible to me how people who go into tech and have such in depth knowledge of systems can’t figure out how to use Slack 😂

To their credit, Slack is considered as having one of the most confusing UIs of modern times (threads, sharing channels, formatting using shortcuts etc.) , similar to iTunes.

like

To be fair the formatting is Markdown. Slack started with a big dev community first. That community was already familiar with Markdown formatting. This is the same reason there's code formatting and some relatively robust features on snippets too alongside a ton of keyboard shortcuts.

It’s not intuitive. E.g Screenshare requires a call first

How to deal with a spouse that has had it with my relapses. Overall doing great. Used to drink daily to excess for about ten years. Now I have a lapse about once every two years and my spouse hates me and refuses to speak with me. I honestly feel I have come along in leaps and bounds and some slack would be great, I am not perfect but a million miles better than I was. Are they being unfair or am I still a selfish drug addict that needs to give more empathy?

Looking for advice. I am new to the firm and on my second engagement. The manager that I am working with is the most negative person that I've ever met; he constantly complains about the firm, the project, clients etc and never appreciates any efforts. I realized I spent so much internal energy to elevate the mood (it's only 2 of us in this engagement) and this started taking a toll on me. I am also worried that he will give a negative feedback on me as this is his behavioural pattern.
