Spent two hours debugging a port forward. Turns I entered 198.168.x.x instead of 192.168.x.x... Sometimes I barely bare with myself...3
You can't put a fucking login wall when I try to unsubscribe from your newsletter, you fucking asshole.
The reason I want to unsubscribe is because I don't fucking care anymore, which means I don't remember my password, and can't login and unsubscribe because you, fucking bastard, made a not working password recovery just to let me give up and never unsubscribe.
It's been 3 years… leave me alone.9
Sitting in a vaccination centre waiting for my Covid vaccine.

My new favorite commit message:

>Me: *wants to do something in plain JS*
>Idiots on SO: "Here, have a jQuery solution"
How about fuck off with your jQuery?13
A week after updating to Mac OS Big Sur and up til now it has fucked up:
- the entire JDK
- every IDE installed previously
- all LLVM stuff
- python installation
- OpenCV (HOW????)
- Haskell and cabal
- bunch of UI libraries
What amazes me the most is that it manages to fuck each of them up in a different way. No overlap at all, and I had to manually fix every single one of them -.-
And please no "dOn'T BuY mAc" comments, it's a workplace requirement; I literally don't have a choice.9
Why is it that the internet is full of fucking "getting started" and "crashcourse" and "essentails" bullshit, but when you're looking for some truly deep stuff like all the ins & outs of MacOS native app devevlopment using SwiftUI, there's NOTHING!
For fuck's sake. People really only demand superficial fake knowledge and don't require depth at all?!!10
In another news. COVID-19 continues to ravage certain places of the world. Most notably India (for right now)
Is there a mathematical correlation between this and the decrease of scam calls asking about your social, vehicle warranties, IRS frauds etc?
A friend mentioned that he has not gotten scam calls in a while now, I noticed this as well. I would normally have vendors contact me daily, vendors with shitty practices and poor sounding accents that insist on them having names such as "Joe" or "Steve". This sucks for India since I believe it is a country with absolutely beautiful cultural heritage and good people. But man, the decrease in scam calls from there is outstanding now.8
(From a previous rant I made)
As a note to all of my brothers from India. I am not happy with the current state in which your country is in regards to this bothersome pandemic. I do not feel happy, I am not jumping around singing to the doom you are all facing. I am sad. I know your people are good and your engineers outstanding.
Were it for me you would all be here in the U.S with me chilling with some good bourbon in celebration to how strong you can make our tech be.
My previous post was in regards to scammers, and I am very well aware that you are not at fault.
Be strong brothers, you will all survive this, just as India has survived generations of struggles.6
Every time I get tons of errors in Rust, I come here to rant, and I'm able to fix the errors the next day. It's starting to become a tradition.2
“I suck as a coder. I have no business writing a single function. None of what I’m doing is working. I should be fired and nobody should ever hire me again.”
*Remembers to clear caches and it works right the first time*
“I’m a pretty great coder.”
The worst one was my mother calling me to say "The ambulance is here so they are taking me to ER, I might have a stroke. Call you...".
And then silence... I called my brother who was as freaked out as me. As it was like a couple of months after my father died...
And she forgot her mother fucking smartphone!!!! The next fucking morning the hospital called us!!! Worst time ever!!!!2
Second dose of Pfizer last night, woke up too tired to be productive but with plenty of energy to furiously post on devRant8
Worst codding interruptions? That's easy: fucking meetings.
You know they're coming up. They start to drain your focus. You double check the clock/start time. You ask yourself if you were supposed to prepare anything. You typically waste an hour of your time over something that could have been a fucking e-mail (or doesn't even matter at all). You come back to your desk, and your focus is broken and you wonder when the next meeting is coming up.2
My roommate is a damn wannabe programmer: he keeps talking about how much he’s passionate into technology, buying hardware, spending hours into arranging his workstation to be as “cool looking” as possible, talking about future big projects, he even wants the fucking Java and Arduino logos embroidered in his backpack the only issues are that I’ve never seen him spending time in a project which going beyond literal hello world and if I offer him help to help and improve (I’m an employed programmer) he refuses because he’s tired/lacks time (but always make it for Netflix). I’d be still ok with that because I believe in living and letting live but now every time he starts to bore me with his lengthy stories about projects he’ll never do I imagine him with a big clown nose 🤡8
Not myself but friend of mine. Early 2000s working at a large university. Top notch office PCs for the time, best internet connection in the country.
He discovers this "Bittorrent" program. Meh, just another file sharing thing... but who cares, it's 2003-ish so everyone downloads shit from the internet.
Installs it on his office PC, because its university so no one cares.
Friday afternoon, he starts download of his favourite music album (some hard to get live version or something), then goes off into the weekend, computer is left running as always.
Download is finished after an hour or so, then his Bittorrent client starts seeding. Lots of people want this album. Bittorrent adapts to bandwith and when your connection is good you get upvoted in the network and everyone is connecting to you.
Monday comes, my friend arrives back at his desk, bit late because he slept in and its university so no one cares.
Suddenly realises many missed calls on his desk phone. Calls back, it's from the IT department.
Friend: "You have called me? What can I do for you?"
IT Guy (screaming): "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??? YOUR PC IS CAUSING 50% OF THE UNIVERSITY'S INTERNET TRAFFIC.!!!!"
IT Guy (hysterical): "WHATEVER YOU ARE RUNNING STOP IT NOW!!!!"
Friend: *stops Bittorrend client, enjoys his favourite album*
Lucky him, it's a university, so in the end no one cared.2
