Do any of you fine people work somewhere where salaries are transparent?
By which I mean, everyone knows (or is able to find out) what everyone else earns
If so, how does it work? Whilst I'm not too bothered how much my colleagues earn (unless it's an order of magnitude more than me or something), I know some people definitely would be6
Hey, what really makes me want to download your app is when you redirect me to the download screen of it when I'm in the middle of a task. That's great. Keep doing that.1
Getting a CodinGame puzzle's description without scraping the page.
I spent hours playing with different endpoints and changing values in postman, all to no avail. The most promising endpoint also returned user progress, which requires authentication, which requires a dummy account, which is against their ToS (it is allowed to reverse engineer the API though).
Turns out you just had to submit “null” for your user ID and it would remove the progress field.
Why is this tagged bad design?
For almost anything, you POST json arrays...
TW: Opinionated rant is opinionated
The entire hype train about wireless bluetooth accessories is running on a shit-engine instead of steam. Holy flying fuck, I hate all things Bluetooth. Call me a fucking starfish for living under a rock or something, but trading functionality for a minor convenience improvement is totally baseless, in my opinion. And wires are not even that much of a bother, are they?
Wireless mouses, wireless keyboards, wireless speakers, wireless headphones, wireless all the things, because fuck you, cables, amirite? Who needs cables, it’s 2019, amirite?
Yes, because I like having to charge my accessories. When I used to have a wireless mouse and keyboard, I was literally inches away from tossing these pieces of hot steaming shitballs out the window every time i had to change the battery. I’d take a cable any day if I had a choice between changing the battery of a fucking mouse every month or so and a simple wired connection.
Oh, and headphones. Yes, I love to charge my wireless Bluetooth headphones every now and then! Of course I do, because it’s trendy! And who cares about the degrading sound quality and latency issues of shitty Bluetooth connections? Compression? Why should I care about how my music sounds, I listen to MP3s anyway, they’re the superior audio format!
Fuck my life. It’s not becoming any better with manufacturers removing headphone jacks. Or making laptops with only 2 USB ports or something because “my trendy wireless accessories don’t need ports! Are you living in the Stone Age or what?”
Bluetooth is a shitstain if a protocol and should be purged from the market. Fuck it, fuck every manufacturer who makes Bluetooth accessories compulsory with a spikey pole in all holes. And most importantly, skin the folks at Apple alive for not FUCKING IMPLEMENTING APTX IN THEIR STUPID PHONES AND STILL PUSHING THEIR WIRELESS AUDIO ACCESSORIES!40
The best code review experience I had is when I started with my first job I used to write 10 lines of code and used to get 20 comments on that, well i learnt a lot from him and now whenever i get review comments on my PR i actually feel good.1
Just tried out Elementary OS and I am just smitten with the elegance of its look. I know it's just a modified Ubuntu, but hey, I am incapable of making stuff pretty. But here Elementary did all the work for me. I think I will stick with this distribution for a while.9
The "AH"-moment when as a boy discovered that with this instructions in QBasic I could literally let the thing do *anything*.
The "HA"-moment only little afterwards that I'll probably never have a clue what a worthwhile thing to make it do would be.
so I spent a few weekends designing and building a Who Wants to Be a Millionaire like game for my parents who were using a PowerPoint version (for school).
Here's how the demo went:
me: it's highly customizable, platform independent ...
parents: meh, PowerPoint it's fine5
Look im all for conservation and helping the environment and shit, but why can't people do it without being self righteous cunts? Like seriously.
I just saw an ad on Instagram of someone getting a drink and they're all "I don't need a straw hue hue hue" and then proceed to drink from a metal straw shit.
THE WHOLE FUCKING CUP IS PLASTIC.
Stop being a self righteous cunt if you're gonna do contradictory shit like that. Like seriously. You using a metal straw ain't changing shit whenever you've got a whole ass cup that's plastic and that you're gonna throw into a trash can.8
I’m done with people that derail meetings and discussions.
While I want to seek feedback for an Interface that I wrote, these attention seekers decide it’ll be the perfect opportunity to bring up the topic of “how functional programming paradigm facilitates better encapsulation”.
Everyone else follow suit. I try “time checking” and bringing the talk back on track. Never worked.
I’m concluding that meetings are shit and a COLOSSAL WASTE OF TIME.2
She: I hate you.
He: I don't care.
She: You are stupid.
He: I don't care.
She: You are ugly.
He: I don't care.
She: Linux is shit.
He: You are f**king dead b*tch.14
Not a rant
After coding, cooking/ book reading is my favorite hobby.
Before last 3 month I took dcsn to give a shot to my other hobby cooking and pause on coding for few months.
I decided to give 100days to my cafe.
Arranging money and perfect location took 2 months , on 16 july I started my cafe not so fancy, just sweet simple.
Means 30 days we're completed,
I was earning 1000 inr as software developer, i am earning 10000 inr daily . My net profit is 1500inr
Moral of the story
Don't hesitate to take risk
Believe on yourself
Never never never start with partnership
Currently I have to pay 1.5 lakh to my ex business partner who left cafe in first 15 days
Forget personal life. Your business is your priority.
Not spend even १ full day with my family and gf in last 3 months.
Soon I will back in software.
Have a good day to everyone.10
