    Could use some advice:

    I came up with a idea at work and created the first mockup of it. I presented the idea, everybody loved it (our created director even crashed the meeting because he saw it through a glass wall and was excited about it). I then briefed a co-worker who created a 3d mockup of it.

    Now whenever people mention the idea, they refer to the guy who did the 3d mockup as if he did all the work. This includes my closest project manager, the creative director ect.

    I think my co-worker did an awesome job, but he would never have gone in that direction unless I'd come up with it. For now I've not said anything about it, and I don't want to sound petty but it just feels weird. Should I mention it or would that just be seen as petty?

    • You're damned if you do
      and damned if you don't
      utopian
    • i'm missing the part how that co-worker presented the mockup?sted
    • also what about the details behind that mockup? it is still just a muckup not a developed idea/product why bother just say nice work to him.sted
    • And ask to move forward with your idea.sted
    • well word spread and it was shown to people who passed by, he also he wrote a internal blog post about it with a video. The video was presented by the CD.Nutter
    • ask him to update the blogpost and mention your part in the work. make it easy for him to do it.uan
    • To be honest, he's an asshole if he doesn't give you the credit you deserve. It's called integrity.Maaku
    • Yes, happens tons. This what you need to do, forget about getting credit, what's done is done. You need to get better at promoting yourself, think hard...robotron3k
    • perhaps your timidness held you back or you were naive to think you would get credit. Also, you need to understand what people think of you there to help changerobotron3k
    • Make a Tshirt with the original idea on it and big bold copy saying "MY IDEA" and wear it to work. In fact, get 5 made, wear one each day of the week.microkorg
    • yourself and improve your ability to sell your ideas. It's happened to me tons, it's not a big deal, you just need to recover. One thing to note, this IS yourrobotron3k
    • portfolio piece, so make sure you get the best versions and include the process how you came up with your idea. BTW, if this is a good piece, you could get arobotron3k
    • better job from it and you could also remake yourself in the process and learn how to get credit for your ideas. Hope that makes some sense... Gluck!robotron3k
    • Forget it. Job is to get a stable, easy income while you build your own portfolio of income streams including investments.shapesalad
    • All the focus on getting credit for your idea. Pointless. Also you should learn 3D now, so next time you can by pass that guy.shapesalad
    • Ideas are easy - realization of ideas is very hard. You can do ideas, that’s evident, now learn the hard part. Then you will be invaluable and can earn more.shapesalad
    • You say the coworker would have never gone in the direction without your idea. Equally your idea would never be a reality were it not for his skills.shapesalad
    • Skills can be learnt. So learn the skills. Combine with your ability to find good ideas. And then this sorry mess will never happen again. Step up your game.shapesalad
    • Welcome to the club. Pal!

    • I've had the opposite experience. Coworker botched a film job, and upon review I realized that he put my name on the film logs.garbage
    • He tried to pass off his mistakes as mine, and the ensuing conversation I had with him had some Tony Soprano vibes.garbage
    • Figure out an organic way to "own" it in a future meeting/communal space, by propelling the project forward yet again asapBrokenHD
    • The bigger the company, the more optics matter.DRIFTMONKEY
    • Thanks for the advice, think I'm gonna make a write a internal blog part about the design though behind it. Competitor analysis, possibilities, why this makesNutter
    • us stand out ect. Then just add a link at the bottom of his post, that if you would like to know more about the process then read this.Nutter
    • I'd love to see this killer idea you can't wait to get credit for. Just do the work. Carry on.robthelad

    guns

    Home Defense?
    Get a Salt Gun. Very painful...instantly. No muzzle-flash or noise.

    Machine gun BB-gun. No muzzle flash, recoil, or noise. This will make a robber stop and think if he has just been murdered then run out pissing his pants and you and the fam can have a good laugh as you were all legally armed with machine gun bb guns or salt guns.



    </thread>

    • ok. dicks go get a gun for home defense.teh
    • I was shot once with a shotgun full of rock salt. Can confirm it hurtsGnash
    • lol teh, we all get downvoted every now and then. And thanks, I got a 9mm :)Maaku
    • 9mm for home defense? Yes. Got shot by salt gun by Conrail when taggin when I was younger and a machine gun bb gun would light someone up.teh
    • i got an AR replica, i love it.ApeRobot
    • Get a pump-action shotgun, just the sound of arming the thing will make anyone run the fuck off the premises. Thanks Terminator!zarkonite
    • scenario - intruder also has a gun, only his is real....umbee54
    • ^ I had a 12 gauge but sold it. One handgun is more than enough for me.Maaku
    • My wife doesn't targe practice enough, I don't think she'd do much good defending herself with a handgun hence the 12 gauge strategy =)zarkonite
    • ^ Makes sense, but had she tried holding one fully charged? They can be quite heavy.Maaku
    • Might be hard to believe but the best home defense firearm is an AR-15.IRNlun6
    • This is straight from law enforcement in a very liberal state. The problem with handguns is that they a difficult to shoot accurately.IRNlun6
    • Depending on the ammo, shotguns will blow holes through walls which puts anyone behind that wall in danger as well.IRNlun6
    • The AR-15 uses a 5.56 round. When the bullet leaves its casing, due to the shape of the bullet it is less likely to penetrate walls , they ricochet.IRNlun6
    • AR-15s are also very accurate and easy to handle for someone of smaller frame like a women, elderly, or smaller men.IRNlun6
    • ^ True, true. I've heard that, but I didn't like the rifle when I tried it :(Maaku
    • IRN do you own an AR? Something strikes me an a non owner.deathboy
    • I don't deathboy. My state doesn't allow me to purchase one. I'd have to buy a pre-ban or build one. I have fired them plenty.IRNlun6
    • I know I have other options but they're a bit more expensive than I'm willing to spend right now. I do like the IWI Tavors, those are pricy.IRNlun6
    • Dumb state laws won't let me get an AR-15, but a springfield m1a is perfectly legal.IRNlun6
    • haha wait state laws prevent an AR already. what state is this... is this the that state i also read bascially bans long 22... cant totally recall..deathboy
    • i also like the bullpups but spendy. im a non gun owner but soon as shit degrades more probably forced to get somedeathboy
    • MA. I don't see things degrading aside from cities with very restrictive guns laws and apparently no regard for quality of life.IRNlun6
    • We live in incredibly good times. I do think everyone should be proficient in firearms merely to be more informed on the current debate.IRNlun6
    • its locality. more crime. more nuts. more homeless and bigger risk takers as income inequality makes for mor edesperation.deathboy

    • twitter did it also, and more and more websites, webapps have it as option too.uan
    • apple introduced it in ios first, then osx I think. then the web started to followuan

    Apple

    I only use Macs (a hackintosh in my case) for audio production these days. I have a Windows pc for games and the occassional photoshop session. Everything else is Linux on my laptop (and home servers).

    The hackintosh is nearly 5 years old, so I thought I'd look at what Apple is offering. The Mac mini, even with the Apple tax, isn't too bad. Considering the amount of shit in my office these days, the small form factor is nice too.

    But, holy-fucking-shit-balls, the pricing on the upgrades are absolutely absurd. $200 for 8 more GB of RAM. Which, is user upgradable, so not a big deal.

    But, $200 extra for a 512GB hard drive (which should be standard), or an eye watering $400 for the terabyte drive. Dude. What the fuck? A 1TB M.2 Samsung Evo hard drive is only $160 on Newegg. That's just extortion.

    So, I guess I'll just build another hackintosh. Apple could have just copied the Intel Nuc form factor where only the CPU is soldered, and the rest is socketed. Or, at the very least, left space for another drive (which the Nuc also does). I don't get it.

    • That 512 isn't a "hard drive", it's a PCI-E module with 3.4GB/s peak I/O. Still more expensive from Apple than buying yourself, but it's not any old SSD.evilpeacock
    • For comparison a ~$250 1TB M.2 Samsung Evo peaks at 600MB/s.evilpeacock
    • My soldered storage concern is that when that PCI-E module goes, you're stuck with external I/O. I typically run Macs for 5-10 years so replacement is a thing.evilpeacock
    • But, to be fair, a Mac Mini isn't really designed for more than a 5 year run without going DIY on the case.evilpeacock
    • Apple know their target audience. And its an audience who wont build a computer and is willing to pay for Apple even if its pricier than it should.Bennn
    • I'm cool with EVO speed. I have one in my Nuc, and it's very fast. My current hackintosh has a 7200 mech. drive. No bottlenecks.section_014
    • @evil: an M.2 can have up to 4GB/s bandwidth... it does hook up directly to the PCI-E bus, up to 4 lanes. This is standard tech, nothing Apple specific so it'szarkonite
    • available to anyone building their own pc.zarkonite
    • Yes there’s a markup on the SSD but it’s way better than the Samsung you’re conparing too and you’re also getting the design and case.monospaced
    • I still don’t want to buy a Mac anymore. It’s probably gonna be hackintosh if I ever need a computer again.monospaced
    • Sure, there are EVO levels and even 600MB/s is fine for most. I'm just used to folks comparing vastly different SS standards as if they'd cost the same.evilpeacock
    • Respect to Hackintoshs. But the Hackintosh-savvy is definitely not Apple's target market.evilpeacock
    • I set up an employee with a 6-core Mini. Those CPUs are server-class. IMO the soldered storage is the only negative.evilpeacock
    • @evil peacock, The Samsung Evo Plus M.2 (in my hackintosh) is 3.5G/s and 1TB is < £75kingsteven
    • I have 8 core i9 9900k, Windows 10 dual boot on a second M.2 and 2TB SATA SSD Storage, TB3, Firewire, Vega 64...kingsteven
    • highest spec'd 6-core mini is 75% CPU performance, slower ram +iGPU for nearly double the price. if you're not afraid to get your hands dirty its a no brainer..kingsteven
    • also, + mac user for 20 years here... Windows 10 is better.kingsteven
    • and an i7 8700k is not a 'server class' processor, its typically found in 'under £1k intel gaming PC' builds.kingsteven
    • Apple uses Toshiba parts for their SSD with an Intel controller. That drive is worth about $130USD on newegg.zarkonite
    • Ah, got the "server class" wrong. What I was getting at is that higher level CPU in the current Mini vs the previous. Still i5 or i7 8th gen options.evilpeacock
    • Anyways, this is turning into a desktop vs mini PC form factor comparison which doesn't make sense.evilpeacock
    • Also, supposedly an i9 is only 9.4% faster than an i7. Intel just isn't making the leaps anymore.evilpeacock
    • yep, it also runs HOT so a small form factor would be out of the question. 2 extra cores helps. when you look at the single thread performance of the xeonskingsteven
    • in the new mac pros the i9 has better single thread performnce and for actually better for music making and gamingkingsteven

    Joker movie

    Also seeing young bruce wayne in this movie, and the fact that they are already making a batman movie is kind of hilarious. Just goes to show that DC is winging it with these movies. Not really a set plan because if there was, obviously these would tie together, but they cant now.

    Problem is Joker is older in this movie. Mid-late 40s, and bruce is a young kid, so by the time bruce grew up to become batman, joker would be like 70 lmao. Timeline doesnt work out at all. Missed opportunity to do something cool mixing the 2 movies together for a sequel at some point.

    • maybe. Young bruce could be 14, joker could be late 20s (he's had a hard life). So not that unreasonable to have a batman being 25 and Joker 37.Morning_star
    • People who care about every little detail will never fully enjoy a film. Its a movie about a fictional character - enjoy it for what it is.desmo
    • Is the movie really supposed to tie-in with the rest of the DC cinematic universe, or is it more of a one-off piece?ETM
    • There is no way arthur is in his late 20s in this movie lmaoCygnusZero4
