My sons entered remission!!
Couldn’t ask for more today.4
I hate it when people invent some bullshit hacker story to look cool and expect everyone here to be stupid enough to believe it. It's even more annoying when you know where those people are from and how the same people in that country don't give a fuck about anything except getting food to survive. Then you look at the profiles and it's all made-up humble brag stories about shit that never happened. Then you see a few guys calling the person out on his/her bullshit only to get their comments "hidden" later.
Sure, the police would break into your place and throw you in prison for hacking. Suuuure, some random person thought you were a hacker and would run into the police. I mean people are getting robbed in this country and no one goes to prison but SURE, SUUUUURE. Suuuuuuuure, hackerman. Hackidy-hackidy-hack. What's next, you're a schizo and you hate people? Do you have a fucking start-up now? How fucking original. What a fucking asperger, anti-social, unicorn, poseidon fuck you are. You must be really special.
Fucking hate the pretentious little fucks in this country. This is why you're all poor, deluded pieces of shit. Live in the real world. How untalented and ugly can you be to do dumb shit like this for a few upvotes? This is the same internet behavior as the losers I know in real life. Development is not all about hacking and if you really are as elite as you say you are, you wouldn't be posting all your "evil hacking stories" in the first place.
Peasants, peasants everywhere. I hate liars. I fucking hate them. What angers me the most is the fact that I do respect some of the people here and this kind of bullshit is an insult to their intelligence.
Whatever, people will lie and we can't do shit about that. I just wanted to vent. Drama-rama hackidy-hack-hack.
Hi fellow ranters!

I pre-selected weekend days due to uni / work / school.

Is there anything you guys and girls wanna specifically do or not do?
Do you have any questions?

Cheers and happy ranting,
PS: Feel free to tag people who might be interested, too, ofc!13
Writing some C in the middle of the night for some random project idea I thought of while eating Pizza is the most fun I've had this year. :)
Wtf y'all see shitposting and then you decide to continuously upvote it.
Look retards. Part of being a Computer Scientist, or whatever shit branch you are part in this vast field...is detecting patterns....if you see some dickwad shitposting the same shit over and over or using fucking retarded ass themes, or some jase shit then downvote the shit out of it.
Someone can make his theme to be just posting ascii penises and you retards would upvote that shit to oblivion.
Stupid ass community.
"THeN lEave" <--- i was prob here before you dickhead....go suck on cock somewhere else.
Damn y'all are fucking idiotic...this what happens when we make retards believe they can be engineers75
I guess my best AHHA moment was back when I learned that good code is simple code.
When I started out I wanted to prove myself by showing of how good of a programmer I was(and which I retrospectively wasn't) , which basically meant to use every high level concept I was aware of whenever possible. Multi threading where linear execution would have been totally okay, polymorphism with x meta classes where a switch would have been enough, all that shit.
It wasn't until I had to guide the first person through that mess of useless ego stroking that I found out how much time and money I wasted by not going with the easiest approach that solves the problem.
Took me some time to fully lay off that attitude but it surely was one of the most influential moments of my career.5
I had 2 options.
Option 1: Read and increase knowledge.
Option 2: Take a sentence out of context and make a meme3
Was explaining a technical concept at a "family" dinner. Suddenly stepmother wanted my help for something technical.
Stepmother: Say Awlex, could you help me install some software I recently bought?
Me: (Not this shit again) I even don't know what software you're talking about. How is the software called, what does it do?
Sm: it's calles digital... *long pause*
Me: (I don't like where this is going)
Sm: software... *another long pause*
Me: (fuck me harder than that lightly clothed woman outside)
Sm: something... *long pause*
Me: (alright brain, which way out of here doesn't involves me creating a bullet hole in either one of us?)
Sm: And you can use it to sell something...
Me: (tf do you event sell?!)
Sm: but not like ebay
Me: (what is it then? A platform for selling services? I don't even know what kind of software you'd have to install, given that most of these platforms are be web applications, whcih makes sense for selling stuff on the internet)
Sm: Anyway, could you help me install it? It would take me hours to get into it.
Me: (You think just installing would solve it? As soon as I install it, you probably expect me to be your walking manual as well, don't you?) Look, I'm gonna be honest with you, since I started working I don't have nearly as much free time as I used to have (Not everybody works when they feel like it, you know that?) I get home at around almost 7pm (most of the time) and don't really wanna work afterwards. Most of the time there's a support service from the people who made this software and they would be glad to help you. (Sorry support team, for pushing this bundle of incompetence onto you, but I guess she didn't even listen to my advice).
After that she didn't back down and still wanted my help. Then my grandmother derailed the conversation and got me out of this. When I thanked her later she yold me that she saw I saw uncomfortable and wanted to help. I love my grandmother.
So I am not going to be your "family" tech support. You b(r)ought this onto yourself. Are more than twice my age and still can't use your brain to solve problems like these on your own and you can even less reason abiut your motives and desires when asking for help. I am sick of you and shutty opinions about people, just because I work as a software engineer doesn't mean I'm exist solely for satisfying your unreasonable desires.
Stop offending me and my profession and get yourself some common sense.
Protip #0: Give me one fucking reason to help you, because you're not family enough and your personality really doesn't bring forth any emotion but annoyance6
My colleague who works from home was sharing his screen with me and a boss. The notification "<some dude's name> is playing Dota Underlords" in the middle of the presentation.
Now I'm here wondering if it's the right time to ask for gaming laptop specifications.25
