About Haz Math

Programming can be hazardous to your health. But not for the reasons you'd think.

The physical pitfalls are well known and manageable so don't worry too much about a sore back, sore eyes, or carpal tunnel. Same thing for mental and emotional hazards. Stress and overwork are serious, but no more than most other avocations.

The most likely hazard of writing code? A life sentence for murdering your bosshole or workmates.

We spend a lifetime learning and loving building something out of nothing only to be tortured by those who don't. What should we do to avoid this fate? Learn to laugh about it. Read this book.

About Eddiots

This is a work of fiction inspired by real events I witnessed, endured, or instigated.

Every character and company is a composite of real people and places from my work life. I just changed the names to protect the incompetent.

Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or businesses, active or bankrupt, is either coincidental or unavoidable because these eddiots are everywhere!

Thanks to all you bossholes, players, liars, fakers, slackers, posers, jerks, cheaters, and producers of endless technical debt. I used to hate you but now I love you because I need no imagination. I just share forward the suffering you shared with me.

About Eddie Ottic

Eddie Ottic has written 2 million lines of code for 94 firms in 50 years. There's a good chance something you own was built with his software.

He loves coding but hates going to work. Everywhere he's ever been had sufficient tech. None had sufficient management but plenty of bossholes.

When he says this, he's "not a team player". But when his comics say the same thing, others listen, laugh, and learn the inside truths no one else teaches. That's why he built eddiots.

He's a fair writer, a lousy artist, and a lazy developer. But combining them makes the magic vector art about his long I.T. incarceration. Read it, learn something, and most of all, have fun!
