My new phone will probs arrive tomorrow and me and mates are going on a vacation to Germany next week.
Currently using nearly all bandwidth/ram of one of my dedicated servers to download maps for offline use (OpenStreetMaps) and convert them to formats OsmAnd can use.
No need for google maps ❤️88
I have 1.2 MBPS internet connection at home.
However, hardly anything loads or works. The other day, I opened Facebook to find out an event's information.
I fucking scrolled like a Mercedes speeding at 200 kmph on autobahn.
Entire website load even before my thumb reaches the top of my 5 inch device.
Something fishy? Well I ignored it and continue existing.
Few days go by and I am unable to browse Reddit at all.
I am pissed. My parents are unable to use internet at desired speed as well.
I call up my ISP and this time I talk politely (reference to older rant). He said, that my internet bandwidth is choking as soon as I use Reddit.
He asked me to try and browse something else. I open devRant and others apps.
Shit is constipated.
I open YouTube 4K video and shit flowing like liquid diarrhea.
Woah!!! What's happening dude??
He says, they have a special tie up with Google, Facebook and other cock suckers where shit from their servers is directly routed via ISP's drainage to my WiFi.
And bandwidth for browsing these websites is not considered in my 1.2 MBPS limit and throttled separately.
WHERE THE FUCK IS NET NEUTRALITY?
Suck my dick government of India.44
If I have headphones in
and I'm intentionally away from everyone
and it looks like I'm working
and you want to talk to me
Here's some advice:
DON'T FUCKING TALK TO ME.
If you're curious why, I've compiled a list of points:
Also, see Fig. 1 below:
Don't fucking talk to me!16
A designer made a loader animation for me to use in the app.
When I finished implementing it, he said it was "too fast".
So I asked him for the fps. He said what's an fps?
I asked him what's the duration of the animation then?... Him: Idk
So I raged and showed him that the fucking software he uses has all the info I needed. It was 15fps animation, and he gave all the frames. So simple math, and there it is...
But still, it was "too fast"
So I asked him to play my implementation and his side by side. It was in sync.
So he's like "yeah it's still too fast, I only draw it this fast for better quality"
I told him it's staying the way it is, and he can go learn how to use his tools properly.7
Are you fucking kidding me? I just wrote a long post about my upcoming surgery and then devRant suddenly exited (without any error, nothing) and my post was lost. And now I can't even open the webversion on my laptop to at least write it faster again.
Fuck. I'm not going to write this whole shit again.
Also suddenly rant instead of random.
TL;DR of my not available post: My first correction got approved, will make appointment soon, hopefully this year, hopefully doesn't get fucked up again and hopefully don't have to wait as long for the second correction. Just want to live normally again and be able to move and sit on an acceptable level again.22
When he said it the first time, I looked up, slightly annoyed. The second time I cringed in discomfort. The third time, if I remember correctly I loudly uttered 'fuck!' … By the tenth time I wanted to cut his throat and fuck the bleeding wound.
Why am I such a fucking ball of hatred, and why do such little things bother me so much?21
Downloading all kinds of icons for a project from this website and kept having the feeling that I was missing something.
Everything finally downloaded aaaaaaand I’m realizing I had to download them in three colors instead of black.
Well I guess I’ll just go fuck myself 😑11
Tomorrow is first day in work.
Its not an IT work but the payout is good enaugh to buy some decent notebook and then next year get IT job.8
I'm such an idiot.
Today I had to restart my PC, saw my desktop, and did that what I always do when I am on the PC. Open the termin... okay oh-my-zsh is updating. Sure let it do its thing. Okay update done, now back to business, I wanted to update my Arch so I run the command `yay`.
"zsh:command not found: yay".
What? How? Whatever, I'll reinstall yay using yaourt.
"zsh: command not found: yaourt".
Really? Even that. For fucks sake.
Anyway, fuck the AUR helpers and just update my system.
"zsh: command not found: pacman"
FUCK! That shut is why I NEVER restart my computer. Great, now go ahead and try to repair that shit!
A few moments later I realize "Hm... This isn't gnome desktop environment, this is budgie". That's when I realized that I dual boot Arch Linux and Solus.
I am not a very smart man.5
M "hey I see you changed some colours, can you send me the new values so I can implement?"
D "sure, coming your way *sends 50x50 jpgs that are a solid colour*"
M "errr please just send me either the RGB values or hex codes, I don't need the image"
D "well you can get the codes from the file if you want it so badly"
M "yes, I could indeed. But I shouldn't have to, besides it's probably easier for you too"
D "just use the image as textures, you don't even need to know the values"
Our team changed to Linux about 3 years ago already and I can see some of them struggling to insert some commands when I'm talking to them.
How the fuck do you struggle to `cd` into a fucking directory?
Ok,ok... I've linuxing full time for 8 years already, I understand I've been through this... But come on! If some one said to me on day ONE "dude, you can cd /full/path/of/fucking/whatever" or " ~/ means home" I would be doing it from day one.
Probably I'm overreacting but wtf dudes? 3 years... Step up your game.16
A few years ago I was working in a startup where the designer was given way too much decisional power (he was friends with the owner).
He had a tendency to keep editing parts of the design during the development phases, so when we had to work on a new big section of the application, before starting the tront-end development, I asked him to confirm that the mockups were final.
He confirmed the design was final and was not going to change.
10 days later, of couse, he sent a new, completely different, set of mockups. The startup owner expected the new design to be implemented without moving the deadline.
(I left that startup shortly after. The issues with the designer were just the tip of the iceberg.
The owner tried to keep a payment hostage to "force" me to sign a new 1 year contract. He backtracked when he thought I was recording the call. I got my payment and left.)1
Just found out that Windows has a built in Code Editor. Saves your ass if the only alternative is Notepad!5
Fuck yes for data hoarding! Wanted to start on a project again but thought I lost everything.
Code is sill in git, (took me a while to find but whatever) database is still on my own laptop (due to ex/importing my entire local host as for databases every time I do a new installation).
Let’s get this fucker going again 😎13
