Why I love being in industry: I presented a deck and I misspelled "EBITDA" in the exec summary while presenting to the exec team. No one noticed. No one called me out. No one gave me a nasty glance. No one sent a "pls call my mobile" text after. No email with some stuff about "not meeting expectations" or "how could you let this happen in your role". After the wave of panic, I remembered that I'm in industry now. I make more money, work less hours, work with great people, I'm happy.

Does anyone know anything about QST/GST in Quebec? We maintain ownership of our hardware at the client’s site. They are paying for SaaS. The client is a government run entity as well.

I worked on an rfp response for them last year and the firm won the work but it won’t start for some time and I’ll likely not be part of the delivery team if I stay at D.

I have been speaking to an engineer about the security of our containers. I know for a fact that these cointainers in our AWS are not patched frequently and are built of old images.

What could go wrong? Is it worth it focusing on the containers themselves?
