My mother just accidentally sent me a message that she wanted to send someone else. With a typo. I corrected her typo in my reply.
Her reaction? She screamed her answer up to my livingroom.
That's her reaction to reading a message from me. In a messenger.
Good friend of mine asked me to teach her more about programming. Couple of hours later, she’s hooked up into her first little game and is coding in the zone.
She even successfully rubber-duck-debugged today!56
We did it, everyone!
After 2 weeks of constantly being near the 100k++ mark and getting thrown back to 97k multiple times, you finally pushed me to 100.000++!
Thank you all :3
And a special thanks to @Condor, @notAnkur, @bioDan and @xzvf who had an epic battle of ++ing me in a multiple ++ per second rythm.
And I hope @xzvf finished his business in the bathroom when this post got published.
Oh.. And... Finally coming for you, Alex 😘

I fucking hate when people want something from YOU, are expecting YOU to respond, even do it for free, and then either get pissed off when you don't respond immediately or act like a passive-aggressive cunt when you can't or don't want to.
Bitch, you're not entitled to my help or anybody's for that matter, go fuck yourself, you worthless piece of shit.22
Java - OOP Course
We had to write a game, an arkanoid clone
And a fun course, mad respect to the Prof.
Most students, including me had this ONE bug where the ball would randomly go out of the wall boundaries for no clear reason.
A month passed, sleepless nights, no traces.
Two months later. Same shit. Grades going down (HW grades) because it became more and more common, yet impossible to track down.
3 months later, we had to submit the HW for the last time which included features like custom level sets, custom blocks and custom layouts.
So before we submit the game for review, they had pre-defined level sets that we had to include for testing sake.
I loaded that.
The bug is back.
So I started setting up breakpoints.
And guess what the issue was.
FLOATING FUCKING POINT NUMBERS
(Basically the calculations were not as expected)
Changing to Ints did it's job and the bug was officially terminated.
Most satisfying night yet.
Always check your float number calculations as it's never always what you expect.
Lesson learned, use Ints whenever possible.10
Setup a pi to be functioning as vpn server and pihole tonight.
Now working on a Jasper voice assistant on another pi, because I can choose for offline speech processing and don't have to use a mass surveillance network for this (google).
Today is a good day.16
I am 26, and recently diagnosed with autism. An incredibly late diagnosis due to my absolutely amazing ability to keep everything internal.. It has caused my countless headaches and heartaches over the years and its good to finally understand what it is thst makes me how I am...
I am also aware that IT goes hand in hand with autism due to our thought process being so 'logical' and our acceptance of failure is.... Er... Not the best. But we also have the stubborness/determination to keep going, learn what it is we did wrong and improve upon it.
So my question really is, are many of you on the spectrum also? If so, are there any coping strategies that you can share with me/everyone who reads this?
By coping I don't mean just dealing with it, but I mean in the workplace. I've never had a job formally in IT because I never did any qualifications in it. Rebuilt my first pc at age 7 and been hooked since.
I have always been a mechanic because again, logic reasons.
I'm currently in contact with an organisation here in Norway called 'Unicus' who are specialised in employing people on the spectrum, specifically in the IT sector... Have any of you heard of them? They seem promising to me
Thanks for reading guys and please feel free to delete this if this really isn't the place for it, I just feel that within this community there are more of us and I would like to open the door for communication21
I've been a lurker for a long time. However, I decided to make an account to let you guys know I use Arch. Thank you for your time.11
I currently have enough bugs and mosquitoes in my room that it feels like a modern server room in here 😒😒9
Friend(non dev): Hey. Do you know how much it costs to maintain an app?
Me : Well that depends. What are you planning to do?
Friend: Something like Trivago. But small.
Me: That still doesn't tell me anything
Friend: Come on. Just give a number. How hard can it be?
Me: 42. *facepalm*
Friend: See wasn't that hard. Was it?
Me: *thinking* Don't correct him. Just let him be.10
I. HATE. HUMANS!
A family of four lurking side by side on an already extremely small sidewalk? Stop reproducing or I will start kicking your fucking kids in front of the next truck.
Ignoring the traffic laws as a biker and almost crashing into me because you just didn't care for the traffic light? Fuck you! Next time I see you I will stick a steel rod in between your spokes so you fly into the next cars window.
Randomly and spontaneously stoping on the sidewalk while I am at my top walking speed? Next time I will just run you over. With a bulldozer. And than again in reverse. I just don't get people, I guess.8
