Now all the updates everyone tried to make went through when they weren't expecting it and a lot of people are super pissed at me.
There's no way to test this shit before pushing it to live? Also, people pushed updates that didn't work and kept them pushed?

We do, just how am I supposed to know to test for updates that were made before I even worked here.

So like, the thing I fixed pulls from an SQL database, which had updated, but the tool was pulling from the wrong table. Literally all I did was changed the word history to fact twice. So the only parts of the updates that didn't work were the final steps to put them into a txt file for the machines.

Meh, I'm actually really happy with what I'm doing right now, like, I'm never bored at work. That's just such a great thing to actually have shit to do that's important and bad things will happen if you fuck up. I like that way more than browsing reddit all day.
