What a rewarding weekend!
Not once did I touch my laptop :)
Sorry, that was meant for RANDOM.. My bad13
being a first year IT student:
- help, I can't check-in to my flight
- my computer is slow, I heard you can fix it (still runs xp)
- can you fix the printer?
- my laptop is broken (error message pops up with the actual solution) and there was an error
- did you read it?
- did I read what?
Is this gonna get better anytime soon?6
Impostor syndrome this, impostor syndrome that. I get it, some actually do have it. But sometimes you really do suck and it's just good sense. Stop making excuses and associating yourself with some trendy new term, you don't even know what the fuck it means and you abuse the word for every moment of low self-esteem.
Have you actually done something in your life? Do people actually recognize you as competent? People who have it overcompensate and are often more successful than their peers because of that.
Are you? I don't think so. Just like the abuse of the word "OCD", you're looking for another excuse to be lazy and yet you still want to look like a fucking prodigy.
Get the fuck out of my sight.22
This business philosophy is relevant no matter which industry, culture or century you're in. In software development a user- or customer-centered design approach is particularly important👌

I hate C++ with a passion.
I've been developing my own internal cheats for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to learn memory reading, thread hooking and etc, and since it's one of my favorite games. But HOLY SHIT is it complex, I don't understand how any can fluently type C++ and be sane.
Does anyone here like C++? And if so, why in the hell do you?15
Almost anybody. Right there alongside babysitting. All you developers are losers since almost anybody can code and make money.
MoFo normal beings. Don't know what it takes to write good code.
Lots of coffee
Lots of pizza
Lots of knowledge
And ability to say no to every stranger or friend who has an app idea and is willing to pay in shares 😤😤4
When you land an internship as a juinor for a small, hardworking company and realise you're totally in the fucking deep end and over your head in a serious way3

Endianess is such a fucken bitch. On one hand I never stumble upon it but currently it's a thing in any project I tackle.2
I don't want to bore you with constant ranting about how my brain is not working and how I've jacked myself up on sugar and caffeine and still my brain is dead and my focus is MIA and that I have an exam tomorrow and it is stressing me out and that I feel like I haven't understood shit but I will need to go through this plus the examiner I have taken the exam with is known to be very strict and not really easy with grades and that I need to get my grades higher so I kinda need this exam to work out because my grades for the first exam were not so good but if I want to do a phd I need better gpa and therefore better grades and this unit is kinda easy so I was hoping it would jack my grades up a bit because I can't count on my upcoming exams either since I haven't studied for them and all these thoughts go through my head at least once every hour and I don't want to go for a smoke because I finished another half a pack yesterday after not smoking so much for like 4 days but this is all really stressful and other stuff and people are also coming and going and my phone's notifications or lack thereof is also annoying cuz it's like I'm waiting for someone who will never call but I'm not waiting for anybody and all of this is AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA... *scream noises ensue*
... anyways. yeah. I'm gonna try to control myself and my ranting intervals.
I'll tell you I'm doing ok, but you can feel free to not believe me.10
Is it ethical to charge a client for the runtime of a computation? I.e. cpu time?
I usually don't, since it doesn't cost me anything to leave my machine running overnight. But a few of my friends told me that I should.
I do sometimes freelance work for professors as an RA. At times you need to leave a script running for like +5 hours. During which I just either procrastinate or go to the gym or sleep. The energy cost for computer running is barely a dollar.
I get charged by the hour per work in my timesheet, or sometime for a negotiate price which is also usually computed by the estimated work time it would take.5
