Those channels on YouTube that read Reddit posts, except they don't and they just copy paste text into Cepstral to have a robot voice. Effortless! I am going to make a SIMPLE Python script that makes those very same videos except at 10x the speed to show how easy it really is!6
I hate father's day.
Reminds me of 2 things:
1. My father is a fucking asshole.
2. My ex wife makes it damn near impossible for me to speak to my oldest child. State seems to do the same shit ever other state does to mothers that do this: nothing, zip, nada.
We are a small size product based company. There was a change in management a year back and the new management decided to fire the entire engineering team one by one. I was hired as full time back-end developer (C++). Just after I joined they removed the last 2 engineers from the previous regime and handed over devops and Python API development to me as well.
There was no documentation for the main product which was a sophisticated piece of software. There were no comments in the code as well. I had to go through line by line (roughly 100,000 lines of code).
Then they decide to hire more devs.Turned out to be false hope. They hired interns who had no programming knowledge.
Now they got two clients who are interested in using the service. They lured them using empty promises. The product is not stable. The cloud infrastructure is not at all ready. The APIs are a mess. I don't know which one to work on.
Worst part is that there is no other technical person in the office.
I'm thinking about quitting now. I don't know why I haven't already.😖😖2
Im required to do a project for work in Go. Im happy about the idea of using a new language but I don’t feel like spending hours learning a new language. Is it a bad idea to just trust GoLand’s intellisense along with quick googling for syntax related questions and just code on the Go...in go?1
Fuck you to all forums that still index deleted threads in search engines! FUCK YOU IN THE EYE SOCKET THRICE.1

This site came up when I ragingly typed "HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO CREATE A FUCKING APPIMAGE AND WHY IS THERE NOTHING ON STACKOVERFLOW ON IT" into Google because the devs of AppImage just put "Look how these people did it" in their documentation instead of a helpful walk-through on what everything does and it was 2AM and I already spent several hours trying to find anything about the creation of AppImages.
I like the rants here, so hello everyone!14
So to give you a feel for what evil, clusterfuck code it was in: this projects largest part was coded by a maniac, witty physicist confined in the factory for a month, intended as a 'provisional' solution of course it ran for years. The style was like C with a bit of classes.. and a big chunk of shared memory as a global mud of storage, communication and catastrophe. Optimistic or no locking of the memory between process barriers, arrays with self implemented boundary checks that would give you the zeroth element on failure and write an error log of which there were often dozens in the log. But if that sounds terrifying already, it is only baseline uneasyness which was largely surpassed by the shear mass of code, special units, undocumented madness. And I had like three month to write a simulator of the physical factory and sensors to feed that behemoth with the 'right' inputs. Still I don't know how I stood it through, but I resigned little time afterwards.
Well, lastly to the bug: there was some central map in that shared memory that hold like view of the central customer data. And somehow - maybe not that surprisingly giving the surrounding codebase - it sometimes got corrupted. Once in a month or two times a day. Tried to put in logging, more checks - but never really could pinpoint the problem... Till today I still get the haunting feeling of a luring memory corruption beneath my feet, if I get closer to the metal core of pure C.1
A question guys, I'm a web dev since 2012, started with php, then shifted to frontend, for 3 years my main was PHP and basic HTML CSS, in 2017 I shifted to / did courses on vuejs, angular and react (loved angular the most) also laravel. Have also dabbled a bit in python, for crawling and mining. The problem is I've never worked with a team or for a full fledged Dev company, so I'm unsure as to how to judge my growth and whether I'm moving in the right direction. I feel like I need a lot better understanding of Linux usage and server control, or should I learn nativescript etc.
What do you suggest? Should I simply look for a mentorship program, if yes any clue where?3
Wonder what we could build if we actually spent time learning the language instead of romantacizing one framework ..5
Simple ANTLR project for compiler class accepted .
(btw I had no idea about what antlr was , so i googled everything :D)
WHY IS FUCKIN EVERYONE WATCHING GODDAMN FCKIN CHERNOBYL
EVERY STORY ON IG AND SNAPCHAT IS ABOUT CHERNOBYL
SHUT THE HELL UR CHERNOBYL6
The other day I tried to have a debate with someone.
We had an interesting subject and I found just the perfect YouTube video (All 6 minutes of it, rather than 2.5 hours is as traditional when trying to drown someone in YouTube videos..) which would open out the debate on all sides.
But they refuse to watch it, saying it says X and Y, when in fact it says Y and Z..
I had hoped we would talk about Z.
Reminds me of a climate group I joined, again a YouTube link, but instead of a debate, we had a refusal to watch said video because it was obviously wrong..
Next I imagine is "I'm not going to read that book, because its obviously wrong because it has the word "The" in the title.."
Or, I'm not going to listen to person X, because they are always wrong, someone else said so !
Must protect those ivory towers..1
