About browsers and whole SSL CERT thing...
Most likely everyone here noticed, that https site with broken certificate will throw these big red warnings, in your face and there is so much wording like "ITS NOT SECUREEEE" or "ITS HACKEDDD" almost like it was written by passionate fanatic.
But when you are on plaintext http browsers reaction is like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Even if you have plaintext with password, it will for example in chromium put small little red thingy that almost no one notices.
I believe that broken cert with some error like invalid date is MORE secure than plaintext password, yet still there is this hypocracy with browsers...
I dont say that broken SSL cert is good, or something, Im just pointing out contrast of "broken" https vs plain http.... One looks for casual Joe like end of the world is coming and second is bearly noticable. Da fuck?
I disagree with this approach15
Got a payrise in my annual review without asking for it.
Wasn't even a big payrise but feels good that they thought I just deserved one without asking. 🙂7
Had a job interview recently that went well besides one little disagreement... and it has made me question my sanity. Tell me if I'm wrong.
They asked the difference between a GET and POST request.
Wow, that's an easy one, they're giving me a break, I thought to myself.
I said "GET is used to retrieve data from a server, whereas POST is used to add data to a server, via it's body, which a GET lacks" or something like that.
They were like "ya mostly, but GET can be used to enter data into the server too. We were just looking for the body thing."
And I'm like.... yeah, you could do that, but that's not what it's meant for.
They mention stuff about query parameters and I hold steady that GET and POST are different because GET has a specific purpose. Otherwise, we wouldn't need the "method" part of an HTTP request at all. We could just either include a body or not include a body.
I ended it with "Well, POST implies that you are adding data to a server, and GET implies you are querying data from the server. When I'm reading documentation, that's how I quickly determine what an endpoint does."
My confidence was a little shaken at this point. Crazy what two people with (I assume at least) 10+ years of experience telling you you're wrong will do to your confidence.19
When you replace all PC fans with Noctua 6dB pieces and the noise-maker becomes your 3TB WD Red...

- Ran `brew install maven`
- Left my terminal to have some fun because of the slow network (fuck my ISP btw)
- Came back after ~15 mins to look at the terminal cause' installation should've finished.
- Checked terminal.
- Realised I ran `brew isntall maven` instead.
Someone had the bright idea of going 100% on premise then only having the VPN on the server in the office building with no backup to another server. Well the power went out and no no one can work or work remotely. What a plan.3
Retarded client sent us 25 minutes worth of videos of "bugs". Guess I am getting cancer after I watch them. The way he works on PC, the mouse movements, the speed, ...are just magnificient. My stomach is getting more and more sick each minute passes. Pray for my health.22
So I got a ring doorbell for my father in law. Of course I'm setting it up for them and their WiFi is not working, they lost the router password etc..
So Im in the middle of ... reset the router added new password new ssid new wep-key etc..
Mom in law is over my shoulder "wow you are really good at this technology stuff. You should get a job with a company".

So I'm like I do work for a company. My company and I get paid much more than anyone else would pay me. That how I could take your daughter and our kids to Hawaii for vacation.😠7
Is it just me, or has @LastPass hired too many interns lately?
First: you can't login for hours before they actually go and admit they fucked up.
Now: the chrome extension has been deleted from the web store.
I'm a patient guy, but what on the unholy fuck is going on.
The LastPass extension in the Chrome Web Store was accidentally removed by us and we are working with the Google team to restore it ASAP. Thank you for your understanding and patience in the meantime.9
That moment when someone is happy because I said I read their README file ahahah

Soooooooo, at 9 o'clock AM I went to his house, and he showed me the laptop. That old and very badly treated laptop. It had 2 gb of RAM and an Intel Celeron of 2nd generation. It had no hard drive because the old one broke and he got a new one, but he didn't knew how to change the hard drives, so it just left it in there and bought a new computer. I had a Windows 8.1 USB stick ready, office 2019 and my screwdrivers ready to go. I was thinking what he will do when I will tell him that he had to pay me... So at a quarter past 9 I started to remove the screen and attaching the hard disk. I putted all back in and installed a fresh copy of Windows and installed Office and Google Chorme. I finished at a quarter to 11 (installing the software was the most long part...). I show it to him and he said: "Why is the keyboard still there?"
Him: "Well, I wanted a black box, WITHOUT a keyboard.
I thought that more time I used more money I will have, so I took some measures, went home and modeled and 3D printed a plastic piece to put where the keyboard was.
I put it in the computer and I have to say it turned out pretty good! I went back to his house with the computer ready and before I gave him the computer asked for the money. It was 1 o'clock PM. He had to give me according to the agreement we made that he will need to give me 200 euros.
He said: What money?
Me: the money. Read the contract
Him after reading the contract: oh my motherfucking god. I need to give you 200 euros?!?!?!!
Me, laughing: yesss
He started tearing apart the contract and said thinking he was smart: now I don't.
Me: you sent me a photo of it yesterday.
I was laughing so hard when he started to say that he didn't had any money and all that stupid stuff(he just bought a new Audi, he isn't poor...). At the end he asked his mom to give him 200 dollars to pay me. She gave him a punch in the face. She asked me why and I told her everything. At the end I added: I know that since I haven't got 18 years I can't denounce you, but if I ask my dad he WILL denounce you because your son signed a contract, that said that every hour of work he will have to pay me 50 euros. And I logged everything, so you have to pay me, or my dad will denounce you.
Her face was speechless. I was so happy when I got out of their house with my 200 euros. I don't think I will get in there any time soon anymore...14
For my job interview, they asked me to write simple Java code to check if the string is palindrome or not! Like sir, I've prepared for advanced quick sort and all algorithms and you ask me this!! 🥺14
Why I hate my job.
They recruited me 17 months ago to work on rebuilding their internal WordPress sites. Along the way they lost their full-stack developer so I’ve stepped in and took over his workload - including two server rebuilds and a single domain Magento 1.9 migration. The server rebuilds were required as the old ones were fraught with issues and were going down daily.
It’s taken until now (I stared on 2nd Jan) to finally begin working on one of WordPress rebuilds. I’ve also been essentially promised Magento 2.0 training to allow us to migrate our systems.
So, to the crooks of the matter. I’ve been informed by my Manager that BOTH of the Magento 2 sites will be sent to an agency (significantly more expensive than upskilling) and BOTH of the other WordPress rebuilds will be sent to agencies as well which leaves me to wonder just exactly what the fuck my purpose is here.
And, to top it off, they’ve decided to move our hosting to an external company. So I won’t be maiming the servers either. 17 months to work on one single WordPress rebuild... so angry right now and I don’t know how to handle it other than to leave. I just can’t think of any other word to describe them than disrespectful.3
Can marketing (and PM) asshats take a moment, think about the word "just", the amount of time they are using it and STOP USING AT ALL. It's fucking irritation to hear that word.
for example, it just needs to be get done, OR
just do an AJAX call and it'll be done.5
