Dear Marketing Guy,
You had no right to manipulate the perfectly working "WordPress" site, but since you have done it by injecting a script you found on the internet in functions.php, It is now my unpaid job to fix this mess.
P.S. Fuck you5
A friendly reminder that Deutsche Bahn fucking sucks.
Their trains show up 10 minutes later than they would have to everyday.
Once I saw that there was a train that was 120+ minutes late.
Today I had to wait almost 20 minutes at a SINGLE train station. Thus I couldn't enter the next train.
To my luck the next train arrives in an hour.
As a student it makes my life way harder than it already is.
It is not reliable at all.
They charge you with 60€ if you forget your ticket btw.
I don't forget my ticket though. My ticket is my campus card.
Their tickets are fucking overpriced and they are always damn late. I ain't paying for that shit. I would rather ride with a horse to the university than paying for a ticket.
Second EDIT as an update:
They just announced that my next train is going to come 10 minutes later. What a bloody surprise, eh?12
Enduring a six day workweek. The corporate secretary's reason: "because more days means more work done."
Our back-end dev has ran out of patience. We were promised to return to the five-day workweek when we finish a particular project. Project was done and we still kept our six day workweek. We got the same thing once we get a Scrum master and a QA engineer. We hired excellent consultants to fill the role. Still the same.
Our junior iOs dev complains that boss "has taken my life away." Considering that all of us have 2-5 hours total commute time per day there's really not much left of our personal lives to fulfill apart from the bare minimum of sleep. I could no longer attend Mass except for that one time I forced myself and the back-end dev to, because we had to rest. My tech lead and our back-end dev gets pestered with calls from our boss during Sundays over issues that aren't actually showstoppers.
Tech lead simply does not work on Saturdays to tend to his family, and sometimes I do too when I want to visit my tech community, but the rest of the team can't pull that as often as he does.
We are counting on the expertise of the consultants to uphold Agile software development processes, but sadly they get talked over by the boss who insists that his whims be priority.
When the back end dev points this out we get called entitled and having no sense of commitment, and we're told to suck it up.
I don't complain loudly anymore and I do my work, churn out as many features as I could and squash as many bugs as I could, but then I get the constant feeling that the management is just using the bugs and features as some form of emotional blackmail that we're not efficient enough to deserve a five-day workweek.
The law in my country says companies are legally allowed to make their employees work 48-hour workweeks but the managers I spoke to recommend against it; that 40-day workweek exists for a reason.
Everyone's going late to work nowadays. Even when the management sent the entire team an angry memo about our collective tardiness, everyone just doesn't care anymore.7
- Guys, today the security auditors are coming, don't forget to remove your sticky notes with passwords. And for God's sake wear the badges for a least a day!
It was my first ever hackathon. Initially, I registered with my friend who is a non coder but want to experience the thrill of joining a hackathon. But when we arrived at the event, someone older than us was added to our team because he was solo at that time. Eventually, this old guy (not too old, around his 20s) ( and let’s call him A) and I got close.
We chose the problem where one is tasked to create an ML model that can predict the phenotype of a plant based on genotypic data. Before the event, I didn’t have any background in machine learning, but A was so kind to teach me.
I learned key terms in ML, was able to train different models, and we ended up using my models as the final product. Though the highest accuracy I got for one of my model was 52%, but it didn’t discouraged me.
We didn’t won, however. But it was a great first time experience for me.
Also, he gave me an idea in pitching, because he was also taking MS in Data Science ( I think ) and he had a great background in sales as well, so yeah I got that too.1
Just generated a postgres (postgis) database of 456gb. Need to copy it to my own pc....
*alright, lets try this with rsync*....*10-20mbs*......
*compresses the entire database into a 241gb file*
*moves the file to the root of the webserver*
*starts downloading with axel*.....
Those tiny 'hacks' can be fun.1
Taking advice from devRant and just working on some documentation for hacktoberfest. Well until I can find a project that I want to add code to1
You can't break into what isn't turned on. We can now scale the admin interface down to zero nodes and spin it up on demand.1
Found this on my university's webpage. The course this webpage belongs to is called 'Web Programming'2
I don’t understand what the point of trick questions are in interviews, why ask a question about something that you would not do in a real system.2
Even the most widely used , greatest command "sudo" had a security bug which took years to identify.
So, next time if your product manager tries to screw you over a bug you can tell this as an example 😂😂
I know this is sort of off topic but I think Psychology is pretty great sometimes and while it doesn't explain why we behave the way we do, it does a great job studying it, at least. So to explain why fake news is so rampant and why despite us being in the middle of the technology age, so many are still ignorant, they conducted a study on what makes a source credible. It's a very long and thorough study, so I will like it for you to read, but the gist of it is this: any long text which is too boring to read word for word is automatically taken for truth. Images add credibility. And simply adding a reference - even if it isn't a credible reference or if it's not related to the information at all - will make readers assume truth, and most won't even think to validate the links.
Here's the full story:
Don't quite get this.
There's some bug where u run sudo -u#-1 cmd, it lets you run it as root.
But then it says only if you have permission to do so.
Does that just mean "run sudo" or something else?
I'm thinking sudo -u#-1 /bin/bash would basically give anyone root?
