Old man rants about anime.
I fucking hate anime and everything else surrounding it. I make exceptions but I hate seeing that shit everywhere. I acknowledge the fact that some of them are good. There's just so many of them in every area of life that if someone raves about a good game or comic and it's fucking anime art style of whatever the fuck you call it, I dismiss it.
What I hate the most is the chibification of characters in video games. Companies would re-create classic games and make them look worse through this. I get the point of style changing over time and wanting to put a modern twist to it but this style is so overused. Literally most of the "art" you see online is fucking anime.
I know I'm gonna piss off some hardcore fans but at least now you know to stay the fuck away from me with that shit.8
I made a CLI tool i named it CRAO, its for creating react apps offline, cuz it wraps up all the necessary modules, and its fast.
Check on NPM Create-react-app-offline2
Today, my macbook pro 2020 get spilled with my ice coke, i am just looking at the laptop, take some tissue to clean it, and waiting for my mac is getting up again. Feel so sad and very fcking stupid 😭3
I'm off, it's beautiful outside, but I'm stuck inside trying to get this shitty rxjs code to work. What a piece of crap, seriously.
I'm close to cut my loses and just re-write everything using immutable instead. I can't even test a simple three line thing, there's just no way to isolate an observable stream. Angular is doing it by attaching everything to a class (ugh) and just replacing object properties (yuk). But apparently jest won't let me mock them or anything.5
I often have ideas, and can (and have) the APIs for my ideas often built in one single evening - but - i absolutely hate building the frontend of sites and apps.
Where do you look for people on the opposite side of the coin?3
Don’t work under a lead dev that is single focused on immediate problem solving. You will only ever put out fires caused by their small-mindedness and miss on learning to solve bigger problems.2
Just needing to vent a bit...
We start off with classic asp.net & Xamarin. K.
Then we run into the shitshow that's lackluster documentation and heavy push for asp.net core.
Whatever, will just handroll things.
K. Azure is quickly turning expensive..
Well let's find alternatives.
Yeah, no Linux ain't gonna work.
Wanna shell out for a windows server? Nah.
K. Well, let's rewrite in asp.net core then.
Nginx proxy passthrough to kestrel. Ez.
Now.. wtf is the deal with mssql behaving like a turd on Linux?
Oh now some security jibber about telemetry and adding Microsoft keys to root.
Whatever. I can do PHP & MariaDB then.
1001 things wrong about Xamarin now.
Mostly performance related.
Especially cuz custom renderers for everything.
& Abused onPropertyChanged.
Uh la la, look at that sexy thing called react native.
Hippytyhop new tool for the job.
Ugh wee, what's this ? Customer impatient & deadline for months worth in Xamarin => 1 week.
Whelp I be fudge..
4 lines. That's how much I managed to have green tests for. In four hours. And even then jest mocking introduce random delays to marble testing so it feels like those are on quicksand.
I'm gonna get rid of this rxjs shit and maybe I'll give it another go when they'll improve their fcking tooling. I really wondered why I tried working with this overengineered peace of crap by the same silicon valley elitists bookworms who made crapular.1
I had several laptops to work with but I have never felt so good since I bought a macbook.
I must admit my oldest ones didn't have an SSD, so maybe that's what is making the difference.
So, what's your setup? Are you an Apple fan? Do you think there are better options and alternatives? How many monitors do you work with?
Share your experience.1
Do you hate it when a girl breaks your heart because it hurts very bad both physically and mentally.7
Wtf is this a feature and I dont know? why on google I cannot find? or is this crappy bug? Why my file syntax is not highlighed in phpstorm? And file icon is different from other js files?3
How to delete 16 days of commits 101 🤯:
First of all, me and my class (computer science in college) were working on a project for around 12 weeks, our “client” is one of our teacher and we literally just finished today to work on the project since our degree terminal projects are starting next week.
So now there's this guy in our class who kinda has the reputation to be stuborn and clumsy; he’s going to do his assigned task, commit, push it and put his task into QA (which is just peer evaluation and testing nothing really complex) and then when we try his functionality and finds out it isn’t working, we tell him and the only thing he always answers is : “but it works on my machine” and then we will need to explicitly ask him to be sure he has all the latest changes (database and codebase) and to see if it still works on his side since it doesn’t work for anyone else.
This actually happened quite a lot in these 12 weeks and you can definitely imagine that of course it would definitely not happen again today when we thought we were finally done with this project…
So another teacher gave us an assignment to create a development environment for our big project so we could try out Docker instead of virtual machines, he made GitHub Classroom repos with a minified version of our project and up to this point everything is fine and clear. That is until 3 hours ago, that our little clumsy friend somehow pushed his Docker related files on the main project, maybe he was trying his Docker setup on the real project no big deal you know EXCEPT IF HE HADN’T NOT PULLED SINCE 16 DAYS 😤.
He was doing maintenance on another project so I can maybe understand but gosh how did he not see the big warning of Git that he wasn’t up to date with master ? And yes we only have a master branch bear with us but hopefully we were able to create a new branch with the up to date project and then merge master.
A couple of us had a gut feeling that this guy would do something that would break the whole project right before we ended, turns out we were right 😅8
What is challenging of becoming freelance programmer, is that not only have to deal with stupid requirements from the client, and attitude of certain client. We also need to face the challenges of other freelancer defaming you , bombard you with a bunch of negativity.
So here's the story, there is this guy knowing that I give the service for creating mobile app for 50USD and client happy with the price. While he get NONE of the business as the price is 80USD.
I am very new to coding.Any apps for beginners?... recommend free apps only plz.As I am a student.. I can't afford much15
Friend asked him if I could test his program.
I help him test his program and found a memory leak.
He investigated the issue...
After a few hours, he found out that his garbage collector had a memory leak :^)3
