"Almond, I thought you said the cause of the outage the other week was that our server crashed?"
"The Tomcat server crashed, yeah. Not the physical server." (And you won't give me the time or budget to spin up any kind of redundant one, but that's besides the point...)
"Ok, but I've spoken to ops and they say none of the servers have gone offline in the last month?"
"Yup, the physical server was fine, it was the Tomcat server running on it that crashed."
"...so the server didn't crash?"
"We're mixing terms here. There's two things that can be referred to as the server. One is the physical machine, and one is an application running on it. The physical machine was fine, but
the application running on it crashed."
"What?! It's a very simple question. Did the server crash, or didn't it?!"
Jesus, Python. Hash randomization?! I now have non-deterministic fucking behaviour _that I cannot disable within the python script_.
Oh, we have a crafted-input DoS scenario. What will we do? Make an interface to allow programs to supply their own hash function perhaps? No! That wouldn't break reproducibility!
Floating point addition is not commutative? Summing over float values in a set may give randomly different answers? Who cares? It's not like anyone is using python in science or anything.51
Discussing some files with manager and he sees a *. yml file and says:
"Isn't this supposed to be *. uml"5
"Hi, can we have a demo for <feature/subsystem X which doesn't exist in our system and which will take months to add> in three days? We sort of promised a new prospect that we have it and can show it."
Sales. Just. Sales.3
Oh boy. So, I've got my text generation system, basic model (Embedded, LSTM, Dense), easy stuff, and I chose to feed in...
... Rick and Morty dialogues.
Needless to say, the results are funny. But they mostly don't make any sense because I used only three episodes so about a thousand lines of convo and I have no idea what to do except for feeding it more data. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Let's hope I get somewhere good with this.7
Fucking useless cunt that was supposed to set up glass fibre and a router still hasn't appeared. They gave me a 3 hour timeframe of when the person would show up, but obviously that those fucktards cannot even do that. I had to stay at home, instead of working, for this fucking treatment...2
I’m a civil engineer working in IT and this is the view from my new office, watching the construction work every day and think did I take the right decision.12
Awhile ago I ranted about getting a "30 days free" trial on ms office, but my card was charged the moment I pressed ok,
I stopped the subscription 10 minutes later,
Never thought the money would be refunded though, time go go out and get something to drink11
Fucking outlook, can't even render simple html.
Our company wanted a custom newsletter to send to our clients. Before vacation I dropped a few guidelines to our designer, how our newsletter should look. 640px width, common fonts for everyone to render properly, stuff like that. To my fucking surprise they managed to create the most designed newsletter I've seen. Custom font, custom letter sizings, negative row gaps, pixel to pixel image locations. After writing custom html for it and managing to get all perfectly in 3 hours, to my surprise I found out, that outlook is broken. FML
Now everything must be redesigned and simplified, just because I was naive enough to think, that all mail clients manage to render simple HTML...8
Oh boy, I think I need a new pair of pants.
GitLab (!Github) have improved their ci/CD pipelines to allow you to chain jobs 🥳🤤
Update from mg previous rant.
The person who was supposed to set up the home internet arrived before the time frame forced upon us, they gave him the wrong number to call and he apparently waited a whole hour ringing at the door (which I call bullshit, because I was waiting on the couch close to the door in advance.)
Time to inform myself if I can legally send them an invoice for the lost work hours1
I’ve battled depressed I failed to realized I had for many years. I didn’t love myself, I forgot what it felt like to love myself, and then one day my life turned around out of the blue. I believe my turning point was when I realized that I wasn’t alone and that people did care about me. I just wasn’t motivated especially after almost losing my cousin to suicide 3-4 months back. It changed my DNA, my personality, everything about me changed until I told myself that I had enough.
Today marks the 4th month where I last had a cup of coffee, soda, or junk food in general because in all honesty it was just making my depression worse. Today also marks the 4th month I’ve been going to the gym without fail and I’ve now noticed how far I’ve come. I love myself more than ever now and I am VERY goal oriented as well. I have one more year left until I get my bachelors degree in Software Development and soon after I’ll go in for my Masters and who knows what I’ll do after that.
It’s all uphill from here and by sticking to my new routines I am feeling a lot better as the days and months pass.
Attached is my progress thus far, left is from when I felt at my lowest and right is the progress I’ve made so far with improving myself and where I am at now.
I love myself, I love those that love me, and I LOVE feeing AMAZING like I do now when I wake up every morning waiting to see what the day has in store for me 😄❤️4
