Would you stop shitposting please?
Nobody cares about an imgur 404 page. Nobody cares about you getting an avatar, saying "OMG thank you for the 10 upvotes on my previous rant where I begged for upvotes!".
Seriously, don't turn this place into a programming group on Facebook. The majority of us are logging in to devRant to read interesting stories by fellow developers. I don't give a single flying fuck about what TV show you watch, unless your rant has something to do with programming.23
Teacher: What the heck are you doing?!
Friend: I'm programming.
Teacher: I see, you're hacking the school database. You're going with me.
(Our school doesn't even have a database)
And I'm just sitting here typing this rant, trying to understand what the fuck just happened.9
I used to buy routers and see if they were dd-wrt flashable afterwards.
Just bought a router based on flashability.
Flashing dd-wrt now so that I don't have any proprietary bullshit onto the device with controls my Internet 😍
Yay for open sourceness!
Now I just hope that the flashing won't fail 😅12
Switched to Fedora after using Ubuntu for a long time.
while working on a project, I had to use the git editor. I expected nano like in Ubuntu, but Vim showed up.
I had no prior experience using Vim 😭
Isn't it lovable? When you spend hours and hours on desoldering a USB hub to retrieve its controller, then spend more hours to solder wires on it.. and right when you're almost ready, when you're just gonna solder the connections to the USB plug for connection to the PC.. a fucking PCB trace detaches, BECAUSE THOSE CHINESE MOTHERFUCKERS CAN'T EVEN MAKE A FUCKING PROPER PCB?!!!
All of this for nothing!!! FUCK!!!! 🤬🤬11
Story time :
Sometime ago I posted a video on YouTube on how to root a particular phone that was lying around at home. I was trying to demonstrate one of those "one-tap root" apps that were plentiful in the market. It so happened that one specific version of Framaroot and one particular method of exploit works for that device. I even verified this by trying different versions and it didn't work. So in the description it was mentioned to use ONLY this version that worked. Few days later there were atleast 5 dislikes and comments that it didn't work on some other version.
That's how I understood how stupid and dumb people can get.2
A friend needed to test an API so, I told him to download Postman to start testing POST request and he ask if he needed to download Getman for testing the GET ones 🤣8
Mint can't find correct driver for Intel NUC.
The download page for linux Intel graphic driver update tool project was closed.
Asked what's happened on Ubuntu stack exchange, got immediately closed, because of off topic: mint is not Ubuntu...🤦♂️
My solution is to uninstall mint, and install Ubuntu...
Still the same driver issue, but at least I could ask...
God damn it.35
Half my hdd is probably taken by vms. I wonder, how did that happen? 🤔
While installing BlackArch, after configuring partitions, it pops up: "Formatting partitions. Are you sure? No crying afterwards? [y/n]"
"Dumping data from live iso. Grab a coffee or make sex!" Next gold. 😲
In the meantime, I also installed ElementaryOS. It's sooooo pretty!
Computer froze midway. I think I overdid it.
Post restart, elementaryos recovered. Just broken packages. BlackArch kept the partitions (phew!) but had to go through the rest. Still waiting for it to finish.
Still waiting for "Installing /usr" to finish... I'll be dead before that finishes probably.
There were problems. Threw out that guide I was going based of, and grabbed another. Hoping this could go better. Still, it's arch; just making stuff complicated for no reason.
Here's hoping the end result was worth it.
Fuck this "No space left on device."
I give up.
... Ooooh! Parrot!12
Too much rants are actually bragging about knowing something that ‘colleauge from class’ doesn’t know.
Whats the thing with that? Help him ffs, dont brag and laugh about it on internet, bitch.
Also, the never happened ‘i opened the terminal and everybody thought i’m hacker so they called police’ imagined storyes. Wtf? Does anybody believe in that?!3
What about creating a virtual-devduck?
A duck on the bottom of the screen that sometimes does weird stuff and says something so you can talk to her and try to debug
I want to do this but I don't think it's possible with Java :(24
Everyone seems to have shared their setups so here's mine
I have a mechanical keyboard and a mouse with 18 buttons. I haven't gamed for over a year :/6
Talking to girlfriend:
Me: “Hey could you send me the google maps location of the place?”
*Receives a link that only says http://maps.google.com or some shit, no query params or anything*
Me: “Hun, there’s nothing on that link.”
Girlfriend: “There is, just click on it!”7
Flutter is the best SDK I've ever used in my life. So insanely easy to learn and use, and it lets you build both Android and iOS apps?!?!
If you haven't checked it out, even if you've never touched mobile app dev, give it a shot. Super fun and super easy.6
