After reading a lot of cryptography, I realized that it would be best if Alice and Bob just talk in person14
So when I joined this community, I was bit embarrassed because I am a tester and everyone around was a dev.
But I was wrong. I was welcomed here with a warm heart. I got love beyond expectations.
In those early days, all I wanted was enough votes so that I could afford my favourite t-shirt and matching shoes in avatar builder.
Not only I got those, but some free sticker swag and soon enough the squishy ball.
I made friends and I openly brag in public that I have some awesome friends from around the globe.
An angry yet down to earth German ranter.
The Pink Goddess.
The script master Brit.
The sysadmin enganeer from Belgium.
The account deleter from Australia.
Some awesome Muricans.
The privacy guy from the Netherlands.
Sysadmin from Sweden.
French, Swiss, Japanese, Indonesian, Burmese, Swedish, South Koreans, Middle Eastern, Fillipino, and even some fellow crazy Indians as well.
I am fucking proud to call you all my friends.
Upvotes hardly matter to me. Interaction is what I am here for. And you guys make me feel at home even though I am tester.
Founded the Team Raven and Lol club. The random mention activity was also fun.
But never did I thought I would reach the 4th top ranter position. Beating the master in his own game? Lol.
What next? I look forward to meet you all in real life. Thank you David and Tim.
Thank you devRant 😊96
Meanwhile at NSA:
Alice: Uhm... Bob? I lost my SSH key...
Alice: ... but i still have the public key! Could you please recalculate the private one for me?
Bob: Sure, give me a second. I'll fax it to you when it's ready.

Father bought a PC in 1997. Back then very few had it. I learned doing things like accessing the internet and sending emails, among others. I remember having added age on websites to be allowed to sign up at times :P My sisters used to play games on it sometimes. The first few ones we had were Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, Tomb Raider Chronicles, American McGee's Alice(Which caused us to upgrade the PC xD)... And some others.
I have a memory of this pseudo-3D-looking game where you move in a maze and try answering questions. I want to remember its name, but I cannot :(
We literally have video evidence of me liking the computer as a child, yet my parents either say I'm addicted or deny I've ever liked it before. Not only that, but continuously limiting my time with the PC hasn't been a literal obstacle in my way of trying to do things in their opinion. Funny how my parents think the last few years I've been my worst when they've hurt me in those years so much that our relationship is guaranteed not working out. There were doubts in my head before, but now it's cemented and there is no way of going back. Father, for example, tells me it's too late to do anything with a PC now(As well as how I've been unable to use the PC. He looks at these pro players' footage in some TV show and he's like, „You've been unable to use your hobbies“, as if they have never ever screamed at me for perceived gaming and not actually cared to check), and I need to look for a „real“ job.
Sorry. I went to bed at 2:00 in the morning. Feel like a zombie because of ongoing weirdly insufficient sleep, even though I sleep kinda more than normal. Even when I took Melatonine for that it didn't help at all.
Childhood was where beating began. I was about 6/7. Right when I entered school. The first school that I attended was a private one and supposedly for „Wunderkinds“, while in reality I haven't seen a SINGLE teacher or psychologist approve of it, their argument being that children were basically drowned in work that wasn't age-appropriate(I don't mean anything bad. Just that teaching about Galaxies and all in first grade isn't the brightest idea). There was always a mountain of homework to do and as opposed to some other countries, we had to do it on a day to day basis. We didn't have a week-long deadline. I was predictably not keeping up with it as I could have, had it been a normal amount, so my parents decided I didn't want to study and began their methods of getting me to „study“. I have yet to see a person able to keep up with that school's tempo, no matter the age.
This place was also where I got bullied. I felt I had nowhere to be: At home, the parents' situation, at school, the bully. I never really went outside to play with other children, so I missed that part of childhood.
After the second year of school I was transferred to an advanced German school, called like that because they taught German and not English there. I also got to learn a bit of Russian before they removed it from school. In that period I used to attend ballet. But for less than a year. And piano, which I remember having attended for quite a long while, some years, if my memory isn't fried. I quit it because of it having been forced on me. Last piece I ever played fully was Beethoven's Marmotte.
In this school I was once again the outcast of the class. I had some people to interact with. All of those interactions lasted a few years at most. Then, because of a part of my class choosing me as a laughing-stock N2 and another girl as the N1, I found my best friend, who I still have today. She's the only friend I have nearby.
Most of the time I hated myself. Even today I struggle with that sometimes.
After that came university. This us where I got something like a friend circle at last. But it still didn't last. I got in a relationship with one of the guys, but I was just attracted. There was another I couldn't dare getting close to. Turns out he also had something for me. Then he disappeared from our lives and a year after, I still cannot forget the person. If I want to, I have to deprive myself of my own personality. Not a thing I'm willing to give up. Then I broke up with the guy I was in a relationship with and completely disappeared from the friendship circle. To be honest, I had reasons to. They refused to even try to look for the guy and they called him a friend for years. Sometimes parents hitting me can occur even today, but if I REALLY piss them off.
Now I'm here and oh, my God, I'm officially am aunt now! My sister gave birth to a daughter this morning... She's in Berlin with mother and both she and the child are doing great. I just hope she manages to be a good mother.22
Movie idea: a plane in mid air catches the wannacrypt virus and refuses manual control. The plane flies straight forward but they only have 2h until they're out of fuel and crash. The only way to pay the ransom is to get enough bitcoins but a recent price-fluctuation made the amount of bitcoins to pay way too high. The only way to resolve this is to create a tumoil on social media causing the bitcoin price to go down.
Visit your local cinema this summer to see 200 passengers and a group of devrant-guest-starrings use nothing but their brains, geniuety and arsenal of devices. Will they find the guy that blocks the wifi by watching 4k porn? Will alice and alexdelarge have to resort to building a fuel-powered mining-rig? Or will linux and linuxxx compile an open-source cockpit program before they run out of time? If so, will they even be able to decide on a linux distro to install on the cockpit?

What kind of music from video games has stuck in your head?
For me it was nearly all music from American McGee's Alice(because that OST is absolutely unique), Bumby's Office from Alice: Madness Returns, along with some other music, Crysis 2 Theme(it stuck in my head for at least a month after having beaten it), some songs from Still Life, the theme for Ori and the Blind Forest, Halo Theme(of course), and others I just cannot remember...50
Parents back then: "You are computer addicted, I saw that in a talkshow. You clearly are. I will take this computer away from you. All the people there are no real people! Realize that!"
Same parents today: "I have one friend on facebook less than yesterday again! What do they have against me?! I need to answer all those game invites! X doesn't want to help me build my farm! Y DELETED ALL THEIR PRIVATE MESSAGES WITH ME UNTIL LAST MONTH!"12

Once upon a time in Devland, there were two best friends @Alice and @Michelle and they worked together at The DevCo company as developers.
After a tough day handling an @-ANGRY-CLIENT-, they thought that they had to go and @RantSomewhere and so they went to a café. At the café, they ranted about some stupid clients, and @theItalianGuy at the third floor of their office building who never picked up calls, and @thatJavaGuy from the second floor who, they thought, was @notarealDev, and the usual stuff about their work. Somewhere in between, @Alice thought it would be @funvengeance to @hack @theNSA; “@karma is coming to get them”, said @Michelle.
To do this, they knew they’d have to take help from none other than @Gandalf who lived in a nearby @cave. So, the next day, taking a leave from work, @Alice and @Michelle embarked on journey to meet @Gandalf. After about an hour’s drive, they reached @Gandalf’s @cave. @Michelle went ahead to knock on @Gandalf’s rusty cave door. Being a lazy @necromancer, he magically opened his door 2 minutes later. “Who is't dares to disturb me in mine own catch but a wink?” shouted a voice from the back; “We’re two developers from DevCo and we need your help in our mission to @hack @theNSA”, shouted @Michelle. After a few seconds, he replied, ”Hmm… N'rmally I wouldst sendeth thee to mine own cousin @Hagrid, but in thy case, I sayeth thee shouldst visiteth the detective who is't goeth by the nameth @S-Holmes”. @Alice replied back, “Thank you, Sir @Gandalf, we’ll get help from this @S-Holmes, I’ve heard that he’s an @exceptionalGuy”; “Mine own pleasure, Farewell!” said @Gandalf, and the door closed shut.
So, @Alice and @Michelle went back to their car, and that time @Alice raised a question, “How are we gonna find this @S-Holmes? We don’t have a phone number or anything so we could contact this guy.”
“We should call @thatJavaGuy from work, I’ve heard he is a man of resources, he must know how to contact @S-Holmes”, said @Michelle.
And it was true, after a call with @thatJavaGuy, they were able to obtain @S-Holmes’s phone number.
“Howdy, this is @S-Holmes, what can I diddily ding dong do you for?”
“Hi, I’m @Alice, I’m from DevCo and I was hoping that I could get your help in our mission.”
“What kind of mission?”, asked @S-Holmes.
“We want to @hack @theNSA.”, replied @Alice.
“Okay… I think I might be able to hel-diddly-elp you! There’s an old and abandoned laberino noodly-near @stacked Street. It was made in @1989 and since then, it houses a magical computeroo that can hel-diddly-elp you in your mission. So, you just have to connect the computeroo to the Internet and you can diddily ding dong do your programmeroo thing and then you'll have access to the the noodly-nsa diddily ding dong database!”, answered @S-Holmes.
S-Holmes continued, “But I shall warn you, there's a riddly-rumorino that the laberino was abandoned because of an @electric-ghost that lurks there, but I bel-diddly-elieve it is just a computeroo program that was diddily ding dong designed to try to @stop hackers from accessing the top secret stuff!".
“Okay, thanks for your help! I bet we can handle whatever this @electric-ghost thing is, so… Goodbye!”, replied @Alice.
“Goodbye!”, said @S-Holmes and that ended their conversation.
Luckily, the @stacked Street was just a couple of miles away from them, so they reached the lab quickly.
As they got close to the lab they saw something that really surprised them…
To be continued in part two...
(Do you want a part two? :/)
My first ever story is a little special because it is kind of dev related at it has "cameos" by various devranters, as you might have noticed.
How many did you count?
More in Part Two.
Thank you for reading and please, any feedback is welcome. Did you like it?
I haven't really revised it once, it is straight out of the keyboard.
Should I drop the "@" ?
But then it would impossible to spot some of the devRanters .
Let me know.

*Alice mostly finishes her new website*
Everyone: "Yay! Cool!"
Alice's mother: "I can't read it it's in english."

Fuck you. Just fuck you. Or finally learn a little bit english. But mostly fuck you.18
I worked for over 13 hours yesterday on super-urgent projects. I got so much done it's insane.
1) the printer auto-configuration script.
2) changing Stripe from test mode to live mode in production
3) website responsiveness
I finished two within five minutes and pushed to both QA and Production. actually urgent, actually necessary. Easy change.
The printer auto-configure script was honestly fun to write, if very involved. However, the APIs I needed to call to fetch data, create a printer client, etc... none of them were tested, and they were _all_ broken in at least two ways. The CTO (api guy in my previous rant) was slow at fixing them, so getting the APIs working took literally four hours. One of them (test print) still doesn't work.
Responsiveness... this was my first time making a website responsive. Ever. Also, one of the pages I needed to style was very complicated (nested fixed-aspect-ratio + flexbox); I ended up duplicating the markup and hacking the styling together just to make it work. The code is horrible. But! "Friday's the day! it's going live and we're pushing traffic to it!" So, I invested a lot of time and energy into making it ready and as pretty as I could, and finally got it working. That page alone took me two hours.
The site and the printer script (and obv the Stripe change as well) absolutely needed to be done by this morning. Super important.
1) Auto-configure script. Ostensibly we would have an intern come in and configure the printers. However, we have no printers that need configuring, so she did marketing instead. :/ Also, the docs Epson sent us only work for the T88V printer (we have exactly one, which we happened to set up and connect to). They do not work for the T88VI printers, which is what we ordered. and all we'll ever be ordering. So. :/ I'll need to rewrite a large chunk of my code to make this work. Joy :/
2) Stripe Live mode. Nobody even seemed to notice that we were collecting info in Test mode, or that I fixed it. so. um. :/
Well. That deadline is actually next Wednesday. The marketing won't even start until then, and I haven't even been given the final changes yet (like come on). Also! I asked for a QA review last night before I'd push it to production. One person glanced at it. Nobody else cared. Nobody else cared enough to look in the morning, either, so it's still on QA. Super-important deadline indeed. :/
I feel like Alice (from Dilbert) after she worked frantically on urgent projects that ended up just being cancelled. (That one where Wally smells that lovely buttery-popcorn scent of unnecessary work.)
I worked 13 hours yesterday.
Okay guys. Tomorrow the adventure starts again. Driving to the town where my second surgery will happen. Next day hospital. The day after surgery.
Wish me luck. Hopefully it doesn't get fucked up like the last time. I only heard good stuff about my new surgeon, but it's still like a jump into ice water because if it gets fucked up, it was basically my last chance.
I wish this extra day in hotel wouldn't be needed. It stretches the whole stressing time.
See you in hopefully 2 weeks. (please don't let them abuse the system like my first surgeon so they can get paid for 4 weeks)19
I just noticed my router reconnects the printer every hour and increases the device number by 1.
Apparently my printer now is device number 2318.13
Sorry, none. Because I actually take the time to learn what I don't know and understand simple stuff without getting super fustrated and calling HTML or / and CSS fucked up, stupid and responsible for my inability to learn some of the most simple stuff on this planet.31
To get further away from dev stuff, as I already did the past half year since I started to get more and more interested in illustration.
My goal is to get better at drawing, painting and illustration stuff in general. I finally found something that I am permanently interested in and motivated to practice and learn.
Until some months ago, I thought I would never be able to even draw something at all, because my logical thinking that made me get into developing passively blocked me from accepting how improvement in art works.
Now that I finally overcame this kind of thinking and can freely learn and practice, there finally is improvement and I feel happy with my decision to get away from development as my main field.
So my goal for 2019 is to improve more and more by regular practice and trying out new things.
I am thankful to know people like @ODXT and @oudalally (not here anymore) to have motivated me to go this path when I felt like it instead of trying to make me think otherwise.14
// devRant unofficial UWP update (v2.0.0-beta7)
After "Active Discussions" (implemented in v2.0.0-beta5), it was time to implement the last missing app section, "Collabs".
This is the biggest update since the start of the public beta, over 100 changes (new features, improvements, fixes).
- Support for Collabs
- Notifs Tabs
- & more... read the entire changelog here: https://jakubsteplowski.com/en/...
Microsoft Store: https://microsoft.com/store/apps/...
I'm really happy to announce that the unofficial UWP client has now 100% of the features available on the official Android and iOS apps (if we don't count Push Notifs 😝 but they will arrive soon too).
It took several months of hard work, but I made it... it's here, it reached the level I wanted to reach since the beginning of this project (May 2016) (if we don't count Push Notifs).
I did it a lot of times, but I think they deserve it everytime, I would like to thank all the people who made this possible, all the active users, who opened issues, suggested features, or just used my app and had fun, posted positives (and negatives, motherfuckers, just kidding, maybe) reviews on Microsoft Store etc.
The entire community who made me want to do this project.
You're amazing guys!
Of course this is not the end of this project, I want to bring the app out of the beta and support it until I will be able to do it, releasing updates almost simultaneously with @dfox and @trogus.
Planned to be done:
- Support for Anniversary Update
- Push Notifs
- Custom Themes
- Close the 15+ issues (features requests, fixes) on the issue tracker on GitHub
- Ranti by @Alice: Your devRant Assistant <- I really hope it will become a thing :)
- Your future suggestions -> post them here: https://github.com/JakubSteplowski/...
Thanks for the attention,
(A fucking pushy assrat of a LinkedIn recruiter called me at my job today, this is my message after he cowardly hung up before I could inherit the call from our secretary)
Dear Mr. $PUSHY_RECRUITER
Please don't call me again, as I already wrote you my unavailability in March.
I don't see your logic in calling me AT MY JOB. It does not make any sense except if you just wanted to call me to see if I'm still there and then hang up like a fucking coward.
If you really wanted to hire me, you should have written me a more thorough description about the job after my initial message of unavailability thus creating the chance for me to reconsider your offer.
But since you seemingly thought it was an absolutely great idea to call me at the workplace (thus making me look really bad in the eyes of my coworkers) I wish you a sincere and honest "fuck you".
Please don't ever call or message me again.
I am extremely happy at my current job and will not consider leaving in the next 100 years.
Yet another pissed off developer.6

Here's a genuine rant for you. Probably the only one I've ever made and ever will..
It's a bit depressing and covers a few topics so just read it, it's important.
So, with the help of my friend and my Nana, I was getting VR set up. (Oh, what joy.)
Now, I love everything about VR. But the thing is, I've had this damned headset since may (Dell MMR) and I haven't been able to use it. The reason for that is, something always came up that I needed to buy and this became a huge deal.
But let's start from the beginning.. I'm curentally fighting depression. I have been for months. My only income is what my Nana gives me ($150/mo) and what my friend ocasinally gives me.
Anyways, the first issue was that I couldn't afford the headset. This was find, as my friend would get it for me, and I would pay them back the following month. But, then, once I got the headset that's when the real problems started. First it was that I needed bluetooth, so I bought an adapter. Then I realized my entire CPU was incompatable, so I had to get a new tower and I went ahead and got a new GPU as well. I also got a charging kit for my headset (This ended up making me owe my Nana money). Then after all of that was settled, I learned that the evauation software lied, and my computer doesn't have USB 3, so I need that too but low and behold; both of my graphics cards cover my second pcie slot. So my options are to either try and rig up something, or to buy a cpu and psu for my third AMD PC which I had forgotten about during this whole ordeal..
This was soposed to help me with my depression and stress. Now I don't even want to get out of bed.
With all that said, I might be getting on SSI soon (I'm sure some of you are familar with that, and no I don't want to talk about it) and when that happens I might just leave behind tech (well, my PC and games) and all the stress and pain it's caused me over my life so this was all for nothing.
Honestly.. I'm just done with everything. To all the new faces around here; Hello! How are ya? To everyone else; You know me. I've been around for a while, though I'm not popular because I lurked and commented with Alice. You all probably noticed that I left a while back, and it was because I was trying to get out of tech. My reason for tech was that I was searching for something. I was always looking for the next game to sate me, or fill this gap in my life. I became a programmer because it gave me control were I lacked it otherwise. I made friends online because my anxiety prevented me from doing so in the real world.
But to what end? What have I acomplished? My twenty second birthday is next month. I've no job, I move from family member to famly member because I'm so fixated on becoming someone else to make something of myself.
I have my own ideals, but it seems that I push them aside to try (and fail to) impress others.
It's time for change. Of course, I can't do anything without money, so I'll have to wait for my SSI which I will get news on in August.
I hope this message came through how I meant it to. There is so much I want to say, but I've no words to say them. And btw, the VR thing is just one of manny issue that i've delt with (but certanly the most expensive)
Alice, Zennoe (Alexis, whom is not on devrant); I'm not giving up tech entirely. don't expect to suddenly not hear from me. I'm mostly just giving up my computer and games. More casually so for now, and them more seriously once I get on SSI. I'll still message you every/other day like I have been. <328
I just managed to accidentally swipe two apps in my process list with one finger.
That's it, I'm pro.
Guys i got 1000++!!!
It's not that i'm special now.
Just more special than others.
Oh I remember the old times when devRant veterans like @linuxxx or @Alice posted their first rants and I welcomed them!
I even remember that night I gave @dfox the idea of creating this app! "That's stupid.", he said. "If this app should be succesful I owe you some special kind of duck we will produce for some reasons I don't know yet!", he said.
But for real now: Thanks everybody for being a part of this and for bringing me so much joy!8
Finally finished the basic stuff on my website!
Now i'm gonna take a break and play some video games.
And thanks to @Alice for the dark/light theme switch.
User logins testing:
How others name their imaginary users:
How I name my imaginary users:
*me reading @Alice 's cake recipe

"dark as our souls."
"slowly and painfully molten butter"
"press your victim tightly against it"
"before it freezes to death"
"Put it into the oven and torture your victim"
"so it fills the hole in its heart"
Well... Wut. Da. Frigging. Heck. I've. Just. Read.9
i always forget that sarcasm doesn't exist in many places of the world .-. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
(on a side note: said fuk it and added alias shrug='echo "¯\_(ツ)_/¯" ' to my bashrc)
Earlier this day i reached 1000++. Nice, isn't it?
Suddenly an idea comes to my mind.
Why not make a rant and thank everybody? And now comes the important part:
Why not make up a funny story telling how i met @dfox and welcomed @linuxxx and @alice on devRant?
Because somehow the story isn't funny at all because nobody got that it was a joke...
People think i'm really old (19 btw.)
People think I know @dfox personally
@linuxxx can't even remember how I never welcomed him
So... sry... I guess? But thanks for the really nice comments!9
@Alice i have bought every ingredient needed for you fucking awesome cake. Now just to make it.
I have to make my creme chese but thats alright21
Videos with forced subtitles are like car accidents. You want to mind your own business, but you can't stop looking at it and getting distracted from what's actually happening.5
why does youtube say "recommended for you" ?
for one, scrolling down the right is ALL recommendations.
and they're mostly things i've already watched or obviously related to them, so duh
What happens when you unsubscribe from a facebook site is that you get a huge message in your feed about what happens when you unsubscribe from a facebook site that tells you exactly what you thought would happen when you unsubscribe from a facebook site before you unsubscribed from a facebook site and clicked on the button to unsubscribe from a facebook site.11
there's a line by Eminem, "but how the fuck you supposed to grow up when you weren't raised?"
took a lil bit here and there from a ton of ppl. whoever said something i considered smart i'd grab it and verify it against the world every chance i could.
idk that'd i could consider many ppl a "mentor" in my life, not in the typical sense. i just observed good ppl and tried to do the same.
and i can't resist mentioning mentors and not bringing up "The Mentor". many thanks you old legend
i suppose if there's anything to mention on the real, if they ever came across here - "too much technology, too little time"1
Everytime someone unfollows me on social media, a little hamster dies in my heart.
They do this anyways, but that doesn't change the facts.13
So I'm getting closer to finishing my devrant-widget project but ran into an issue because some people use emojis in their about, skills, website, etc *cough @alice.. cough* and well.. it creates internal server errors because emojis dont magically convert themselves xD But I think I found a fix. On to the next bug.8
Devs of devRant, I need some help implementing the dark theme on my website.
I wanted to implement one since a long time, but the post other day by @bhouston (https://devrant.com/rants/1434663/...) and following discussion with @JoshBent and @Alice pushed me further to do it as early as possibly.
Here is my solution:
I have created two CSS files (one for light and another for dark, placed in same folder).
The CSS should switch when the user toggles the switch.
I wish to install following switch: https://codepen.io/jsndks/pen/...
As a QA, I have limited knowledge of how to implement the switch across my and storing the session in a cookie.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!49
Going to sleep with a newly gained 4k milestone! I'm gonna have good dreams :)
I never thought anyone would actually like me on this platform when I joined last month, but I guess I was wrong. I got along with a few awesome people, which I'm gonna list right below. Other than that, I'm glad to be a part of the community :)
The people I got along with the most:
- Linuxxx, the privacy superstar
- ewpratten, the young programming genius
- devTea, the compulsive upvoter
- Condor, the account deleter
- Alice, the pink freak
- Stuxnet, which I kinda forgot the first time I wrote this (sorry!)
- Almost everyone on here!
To be clear, those are people I enjoy talking with, they might not feel the same way. I just wanted to thank those who made me smile the most here.10
i just love WINE
you can be playing something for an hour, and then BAM!
reboot doesn't help
loading diff saves doesn't help
just, no, "i dont wana work right now"5
Can we please stop asking endusers dumbed down questions if they ask for something different than the actual issue?
We are the ones responsible for chainmails about pseudo messenger "viruses" and people thinking your computer blews up just from visiting a porn site.
We are the ones who ask questions like "did you watch porn on this device?" instead of "did you download shady files?", so now everyone thinks simply watching a webvideo destroys your computer beyond repair.4
What is https://alicepeters.de/devrant/
What is the api?
And can you translate the german below?13
this took me longer than it prolly should have.
and yes there's tearing. i am not arteest
someone at work just said "ok...let's try npm -v"
and i almost just said out loud
"oh node, you didnt!"2
I'm in 3rd year of my CS degree....
Fucking Indian Education System
I'm having a subject css(cryptography & system security)... The bitch who teaches us doesn't know shit.... She just picks random words from the ppt & blabber random bullshit...
Last week we had our unit tests...and the question was explain Working of deffie-helman. Just because I didn't use the names Alice & Bob in the example she didn't gave me marks....I mean wtf..that was just an example mentioned in the slides.....
I bet it wasn't required at all...
I knew most of the things they teach here..
These mofo professors have just a CS degree and they are here to teach the same course....10
"Let the developers consider a conceptual design,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day._
“No, no!” said the Queen. “Tests first—design afterwards.”
“Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of writing the tests first!”
“Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple. “How much code have you written recently, anyway?” she sneered.
“I won’t,” said the plucky little Alice. “Tests shouldn’t drive design, design should drive testing. Tests should verify that your code works as it was designed, and that it meets the customer’s requirements, too,” she added, surprised by her own insight. “And when you drive your tests from a conceptual design, you can test smarter instead of harder.”5
I met almost all the people I kinda dated, including my partners up to now, through projects I worked on or after working on stuff for them.
I also met most of my friends this way. Which is pretty logical because I usually date my friends.
What I do is the base of my social life.
Despite what some people here sometimes say, one does not exclude the other in any way.12
want to Go to the C, sip on some Java, watch Perls wash up on the shore, a Python traverse the jungle behind me, collect Shells, maybe find a lady named Ada to Tcl. a BASIC life without the Brainfuck. Ruby eyes gaze on my life's SQL2

why is everyone's god damn answer in the corporate world fuking meetings?
you usually don't solve anything with them anyway, and there's too damn many
if you took the time to read the conversation, you'd know there's no meeting needed and the other party agreed to a method that wont break shit
or if you had half a brain and read the part of the chat you didn't even need to scroll up for you could think of something simple like not breaking working things and asking before changing it?
fukin corp retards, company men. how is this world still going?8
(!= rant && == story)
Sooo it's 1:35AM.
Just had a call with boss to show that everything is done.
Bossy ses gud night.
Skype call ends, who the fuck is Alice starts playing in my headphones, the night is dark and I'm siting near my desk lamp, Geez lonelynes level is over 9000
In my head: wait, what now?🤨3
Just when I want to get inspirations for my personal site by looking at other websites by devranters the famous website of @alice is down :(
Any other websites I should check out as example?9
Mind of a programmer in an Interview be like:-
Interviewer:- What's your name?
Programmer:- My name is Alice. (In mind printf("my name is %s ",name);)
Interviewer:- Where are you from?
Programmer:- India. (In mind location = &India;)16
Could LinkedIn please stop to send me notifications about the same 3 new messages over and over again? I don't even have any!5

can we filter the feed to weed out ohhhhh idk... git? just a rannndom example3
I saw this image on IBM's blog. The author was explaining how blockchain could be used to implement self sovereign identities. But, isn't the last step wrong? In order to decrypt Alice's message, Bob should use his private key instead of Alice's public key, right? Of course, while encryption Alice has to use Bob's public key.4
I spent the last couple of days on working on a big and complex MOBA map for Wargroove... a.... turn based strategy game with hotseat online game.
When I saw people in the community forums talking about how it is (according to them) impossible with the editor mechanics to create a MOBA style map with similar gameplay and AI controlling the minions properly, I just jumped in after seeing that some people attempted it but mostly failed (with some little exceptions in the 1vs1 field).
And now I've got it. A full-fledged turn based, long MOBA map for 4 players (sadly that's Wargrooves human player limit. Otherwise it could be more).
I learned to like and hate the map editor.
I love it for how simple and fast it is.
I hate it for the missing features like using a counter for calculations or in texts.
I hate I had to create a lot of events twice or even more times because of the missing functionality.
I hate that my fingers hurt so much from using a controller for so much time.
And I hate that I loved it so much that I now got 47 hours in Wargroove without even playing it after the first 5 or 6 missions.
Looking forward to finally playing it.
Please devs, at least add a feature to use counters for something else than pure conditions if you create a map editor for your game.
Thanks. Was fun anyways.2
dont you love when you go to a site
DIRECTLY - to that site
and the first thing youre greeted with is an ad or email sign up - FOR THAT SITE?
what kind of fuking UI is that? what kind of marketing is that?
i just went to YOUR site. don't throw fuking ads and nonsense at me in some pop-up form where i can't interact with your page without clicking the "X" to close it.5
So someone decides that the employees need to do these stupid Web-based training's that not even high school kids should be looking into.
What is about ?
Security and Cryptography, and now event the real stuff.
What it covers?
Alice and Bob, Bob and Alice.
Alice wants Bob some pics/messages that she suspects someone else will see. DDDDDDAAAAAAAFFFFFFFAAAAAAAAAKKKKKK
A total of 7 useless time wasting interactive and annoying training's, 20+ min each.
But someone forgot that please do not send this shit to engineers of your company, specially Software/Network engineers. Oh another subset, specially not to those who work deeper into the domain.
I'm getting paid to do this time wasting activity, and still.
I also may come back and remove this BUT FOR NOW I NEED TO RANT.
In the last couple of days I really wish more people from devRant were more active on (german) Twitter. It's a ridiculous thing that's happening about article 13 right now. Every tweet from german politicians about it is such nonsense bullshit without any knowledge in it that even a 10 years old would know better.10
i hate when things have names that are TOO simple
let's say, frogleg (random idk). ok kool, so you named your editor, server, tool, wtf ever: frogleg. now i go to search for it. i get food suggestions, pictures of disected frogs, a whole bunch of stupid shit
or "jump" wow - jump? what a specific name for something. i can't just search _for_that_
it's too common of a problem (and ppl don't even make easily grep-able code either but that's an even bigger issue)
if you want to name something snazzy simple, at least throw some 1337 in there so it's distinguishable.
froglegz, j0mp, j_mp, juhmp, jmper, idfk be creative. make it different.
don't just use a standard word from a spoken/written language. unless you want it to be unknown and hard to find7
years back, before the dawn of dual core cpus. our rich friend of the group got 1024 megabytes, ONE WHOLE GIGABYTE, of RAM. and we were all like, "what are you gona use THAT for?"
today the answer is. uh, maybe browse the web? like a single page, from over a decade or 2 back?
After reading a rant of Pink Princess ( @Alice ) I got inspired by what she said about a card game with QR Codes and here I am. Today I started creating the first bone of the skeleton of the game. I have never created a game before, so even if it is a browser game i want to make it beautiful.
I created also a github repository where you can appreciate my shitty code.
P.S. Sorry for my english :36
the network at my job drops more than underwear at an orgy -.-

I had to write a script to clean some crap from a database.
In particular it had some records containing multiple names and I had to split them.
It was really a nightmare because the separator was not always the same, e.g. "John, Mark and Bob" or "Alice+Mary".
«Ok, let's use a fucking regex: ",|(and)|\\+|/|&"»
Then, I realized there were some "Alessandro" in the database. Yeah, Aless(and)ro. Shit.
So I had eventually added more crap into the database.6
came up with a new term for Arch's "rolling release"
rolling is a lil slower and doesn't break tons of trees and people's bones on the way down
When you're asked to edit some code you've never written... Feels like Alice in Wonderland... completely lost...
sorry, had to xD
this dude's reaction is totally me... dafaq?! they all pink?!
Also fuchsia/fusciha/fusiwhatevaa is here.. everything else is shade of pink or range from #fc64ea to #fcSTHELSE O.o6
I was coding some simple themes for a management system I'm currently working on my job, then I remembered about @Alice and I thought to myself "Fuck it, why not?" and added a subtle pink theme3
Today I got a message from a "friend" of @Alice and me, for a long time. And I was already ranting by myself, because this little fucker is writing maybe two or three times a year, just to have a computer support, like now. He needed help, because a game was crashing everytime at a specific point, and I advised him to reinstall the game, which he can't, because of his slow internet. His answer stated, that he would have only slow internet right now. After this I explained him, that his internet is for around 2.5 years slow. And 2.5 years aren't "right now". I'm still waiting for any reaction.
It's the same fucking guy in Alice's wk post here: https://devrant.com/rants/1564585/...3
for real, the elon musk thing. try to re-evaulate why i'm trying so hard
but also - take a shit on the clock and remind myself i'm getting paid for it
helps to feel slightly better :)3
-.- after the bs with amazon. they now say my item would arrive after i told them i would move. also said it'd arrive way out of prime 2days so...fuck yourselves amazon. eat a dick11
am i getting grumpy and old? what the fuck does PRE_ORDER mean to you? you see, i thought it meant i ordered something - and it'd be sent to me on the release date. back in mYyYyyYYyy day - you paid for something, suppliers had it in stock before the release date, and then on release date you would get what you paid for. amazon (of course it's amazon, fuck amazon. fucked me over so many times in the past 2 years) says they dont have my item in stock. then WTF DID I PREORDER IT FOR? to top it off, even though they've been horrible 50% of the time for the past couple years, they offer me $10 off on my "order". ya, sure, okay. nope : $10 off future order. i don't wana fucking order from you! i actively avoid you!
fuck this world. why is everything shit anymore? why can't something just fucking work as fucking in-fucking-tended?
am i cursed? i've been good for a while. it's not karma. complete bs, why bother.6
someone asked for a stable nix distro, and i noticed too many google hits that recommend _arch_
do they not know what stable means?
stab-le, as in running consistently and not crashing. updating without any bullshit and breaking.
why is arch #1 on so many list?
gtfo. what is wrong with you people!?!?!18
Someone posted a rant about pseudo HTML devs (I’m not gonna say who... @Alice). While she’s right I think there are two worse groups: Batch and Visual Basic wannabe devs30
i see a lot of AI post on here
i think that "AI wont be dumb" is 1 of the major misconceptions about AI
everyone think's a computer would be super smart bc it'll be able to think fast
it takes "intelligence" to determine 2 ppl are different and make assumptions that lead to racism, and keep confirming those assumptions
it takes intelligence to make a programming languages, frameworks and libraries that a lot of ppl complain are bad
it takes time to gain the experience to even have the _option_ to compare and learn from the experience
the realization of "i can improve myself", the prediction of payoff, weighing the work and effort of an unknown reward - i don't see things like these considered often enough
so many "top of the field" AI ppl share the same opinions. but only a couple philosophers even question if AI would commit suicide or care about things other than what you programmed it to care about5
The starting background color should be random (or at least pink so Alice can be happy) in my opinion.
All the new people are just green circles.
It's pretty useful to welcome them but it's Boooriiing7
Every data communication example has Alice and Bob communicating with each other. I wonder after all these years how are they able to maintain a stable relationship.
I wish my girlfriend understood this.
coworker : hey can you test this? doc should be up to date.
me : ya, sure. *looks at vague test case* ... what's the jar/doc name?
coworker : oh it's ___
me : ok i found the doc, where's the jar? do you have it?
coworker : oh i'm building it in jenkins now
coworker : ok it builds (link to jenkins)
how did you not know i'd need these things to do what you're asking? >_>2
something keeps throwing an error trying to free() something that mallocs
can't figure out why
compile with "-O2" ... goes the fuck away10
I always wanted to have my first post here be something that pisses the sh!t out of me.
tl;dr: Memes are for braindeads and kids are fucktards
So basicaly I am now having a summerjob before my next semester starts so I can make some cash to buy some overpriced stuff I dont probably need. I work at a factory, 3 shift work and today we had Night shift, so there was me and a bunch of Arab guys, kicking our asses by pure boredom and desperacy.
I was bored, opened my phone and decided entertain myself by some funny sh!t I can find on Mark Sugarhills webpage. I was just passing by some random a bit funny stuff and then I found some random ass meme, which doesnt give a single, even distant sence to me.. So since my german is as good as my coding skills (read: complete shit) I couldnt ask for opinion of my fellow coworkers and since its fuck1ng 4am theres noone to ask on messenger or whatever. So I did it... I asked in a goddamn comments, what the fck is that supposed to mean and Aw dear Lawd... I did a mistake.
Like 4 seconds after my question I had a response and I was like 0.o It has to be some Alice of Facebook so I guess someone cool. Oh boy I was never so wrong. The answer... the... FUCKING answer was.... "normie."
What the actual fuck?
Like man statisticaly speaking, there is 200,000 people on this wannabe funny site and since everyone is apparently laughing their asses off, I am the motherfucking original snowflake.
But I wanted to play it cool... was like Uhm sorry, I really tried but cant figure it out.
His fuck-me-sideways-with-rusty-crowbar answer was:
a) The joke is hidden in some random thing we created yesterday and decided to call it a culture
b) "u dumb"
I hope that most of you finally guessed it! Its the second fucking answer and oh sweet mother of pain, please find him, BUT thats where I flipped and fucking lost it.
The fucking nerve to speak to me like that u dissrespectful piece of shit. Go watch some Twitch, while I SSH into ur ass and hit u harder than ur mom her forehead everynight when she realises that she could have swallow you dickhead.
I was always worries that my child would like to be a Rapper, or Youtuber...
But today Im adding being some dumb ass meme creator.12
when you hit a site with a 'bad certificate'
why is the default option to permanently add it? -.-2
TV shows be like: "Look at this cool styled and complicated digital presentation of our crime case that I created and memorized in the 30 minutes we had left, just to show it to you."2
mhm, ya, "article 13"
found it, read it.
seems like a law renew. also seems like the standard law that other places have to abide by anyway. if someone says you have copyrighted shit all over your site you have to comply and all that jazz
stop over exaggerating, only reading headlines, and taking people on the internet (idfc who it is) at their word. (yes, don't believe me, go find out for yourself. but especially don't believe shit news sites that make money through hits or zealot groups like EFF)5
i needed to get a dvi/hdmi converter and amazon fuked me, again (big surprise) so i went to monoprice
specifically asked "subscribe to promotional emails?" NO - NO i don't fricking want that
email: "order recv"
"more order bs"
"youve been subscribed!"
wtf? NO! i said fucking NO! don't just ignore it you bastards
(i guess this is better than the alternative of usualaly getting suked into it and not knowing til you get emails down the road, but fuk off, miss me with that shit)2
i'm fuking sick of you human ass fuks ruining everything -.-
minimalist shoe, a few years ago, meant a specific kind of shoe with certain specs
now nike and new balance, and who-ever the fuk else, just adds it as a term for their shoes and i can't find anything
go fuk yourselves and die in a fire because you tripped over your bent up toe box into lava you simple mother fukers
This is more of a thought-related post. In the morning I stumbled across an article about artificial intelligence and the research from Facebook. I couldn't get around the thought of Elon Musk warning the people about uncontrolled developing of AI. The article was written about the experiment of Facebook, where two bots (Bob and Alice) were told to communicate with each other. As the developers "forgot" to implement a reward for using the English language, the bots started to change the grammar and spelling. They invented their own english-styled language, removing words that were too complex in their opinion. As soon as this happened, the researchers stopped the experiment, stating that they "couldn't follow what the bots were saying".
I wouldn't call myself a neural network expert, but I can understand why the bots could have behaved like that. But: Imagine that we invent an artificial intelligence with greater responsibility and just "forget" the reward for a specific task. If the AI will then try to increase it's own efficiency, I believe that we will be in alot of trouble.
Any thoughts on this are highly appreciated, as I think that this is a topic we should all look into (especially on a platform for developers).

moved back home - new job has been sucking my soul
ppl - are - so - useless
how is good help so hard to find? ppl need step-by-step instructions and babysteps to the fuking max. you can't extrapolate from the steps given to you? you can't rtfm and take 2 seconds to figure out how to troubleshoot? save the trouble, shoot yourself.
still alive. not giddy. looking for new job/income. miss ranting/angryness.3
life has been draining me for the past few years...suggestions?
move somewhere new, possibly get rid of most of what i have and start over?
dump all the money i have left into investments, which i see as a random lotto, like a business, real estate, or literally lottery?
bail and become a vagabond?
Our college convocation/send off is right after few days
people are getting mail from certian email id from college domain which looks phising mail to click on some url with strange ip to register.
College group: people painicking, as if some one is trying to hack their fbs 😱. I had to calm them down by proving that that link was our college website, even though ip said otherwise.
Proof: I just stripped the url which showed default Apache2 on Ubuntu welcome screen(index.html) 🤭. Then I stripped further more to see all the files in hosted folder of server which contained 2016 registration convocation form. So with this pic I told that it is really the same form changed Colors (from pink to blue, I guess 2016 was year of Alice) and year variable, invitation is still to be added in both 2016 to 2018 websites 🤯.
people try to login to register using email id and unique/University serial number (usn). They forgot the email id they had given once upon a time, so couldn't login. There was again chaos. 🕵🏻♂️ How to remember our email id.
the sysadmin (person who has admin access and can run scripts from internet 🧟♂️) of our college said he will add the I'd and asked people to give their email id and usn in a group. Now I have lot of aliases to give for some stupid advertisement guys like dominos
Domino guy: Please give me your email id
Me: pick a chit from the bowl 😭
In fact I had all people email id and usn ( including mine😓) in a sheet which contains details like marks from 10,12th along with University, etc, which they fillied for placement which excel sheet output of Google forms.
Can make fake passports, sell it, phising, and crazy stuff😈. It is like people in Indian college don't really understand value of this data
1)the Apache version had few cves attached none of them were that easy to execute. And most of them were dos stuff.
2) And they cost of that unifrom/gown is 400 and they also take some money form . They said 500₹ security deposit and only100₹ will be returned. WTF!!
i know it's getting closer to the end of the week, but i just thought of something
god *looks up shaking fist*
new job. after a few years of doing nothing it's busy af. no time to do anything. all kernel/network background shit. linux which is kool, but "enterprise" linux, which all suk if you ask me. maybe suse is ok? haven't used. can't get their shit together, bad docs. be so much easier to roll own but management wants us to use an even more obscure and shitty version of linux. ppl are ok, but half are remote and between that and meetings half the day it's kinda useless.
no life. fml.
ima sound cocky but
my new team may have ppl who know more in general than me - and that's a great feeling1
I think @Alice would like Fuchsia OS since it's all pink and stuff.
Alice has two children. If you meet her together with one Child which is a boy, the probability that she has two boys is 0.5. If she tells you that the child is her first born, the probability of two boys drops to 1/3. Could someone please explain?9
sick of all these frickin linux side distros that don't even have a installer that works properly...1
FUCK rabbit holes real hard. When you spend a week creating a super optimized recursive handler for mapping redundant database row results and you wake up from your coma realizing everything could be handled by a much simpler SQL query done in five minutes. Fuck me, fuck the rabbits creating holes to fall into and fuck Alice for creating the fucking illusion of wonderland.
google maps suks where i live...can never find sh17 as it is, even if you directly search for it
go search my home area, the places that pop up are actually thai food
apparently Pizza Hut started serving thai food
are there any linux/unix classes and if so what field/major do you come across them in?
so many times at my job i hear over the cubes, "oh you can use this `sed` command," or other generic command line tools: awk, grep, find...yesterday i heard, "ya i knew about `kill`, but i didn't know about `kill -9` "
also, i've seen here (and heard happens elsewhere) a wave of college hires that immediately all go to special 'bootcamp' type classes for a month or more.
so...the company knows the degree doesn't mean all that much then, right?
you have to learn new things in every job, but it seems linux isn't taught and yet it's used everywhere.
now i'm thinking too much into society complexity, could go off on how k-12 doesn't teach enough or the right things, so i'ma stfu
is college useful?
does anyone find themselves having to teach the same things over and over?
teach surprising things?
anyone else who didn't go to college who feels they piss others off because they don't have a degree?9
framework: lightweight, dynamic, not as many features, was used by such-n-such for a while

anyone know where to get a 5v to 3.3v usb converter that's NOT from china. i can't find shit. also usb-a or micro (or c i guess?)
anyone else think it's stupid as fuk that Ctrl+W is close tab and right next to Ctrl+Q which is quit ?
or am i just bad and should feel bad bc i occasionally make a typo?
guess i'll config back to ask before quit. or change my vim commands and get used to that1
fuk pulseaudio and its mother cancer systemd >=0
idk how or why ppl defend this shit. have to use pulseaudio because i've tried to NOT have systemd and pulse audio before but arch insist everything needs pulseauadio.
i have never, EVER, had pulseaudio just "work"and be consistent for me - on any distro.
reboot a minute ago, some how all my audio is fuked up. bass is off. balance went to the right. volume went down to almost nothing. wtf is this shit? you've been around for years, these shouldn't still be problems.1
Sorry a big part of community sick due to GitHub merger with M$ (including Alice, Floydian, Michelle and more)
But this is fucking unbearable!!
WHAT THE FUCK IS AN ENTERPRISE DEVELOPER AND ACCELERATING THEIR USE OF GITHUB!!
HOW CAN A DEVELOPER (EVEN IF WORKING ON A PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE) BE AFFECTED BY THE MERGER!!??
I HOPE NOT THAT THIS FUCKING DEFINITION OF ENTERPRISE DEVELOPERS MEANS DEVELOPERS PAYING SHITLOAD OF MONEY TO M$.

Do correct me if I'm wrong.2
so...if you make a linux fone (android, duh) you have to release kernel source right?
but most fones you can't frickin root, unlock bootloader, and what not. thus, making that source kinda useless unless maybe you port it to another device.
so like...how is that even legit? not beneficial to most ppl. ffs. kool you obeyed GPL but can't really apply that code.
frickin stupid. pissed. just venting and bitching bc i want root on a fone w/ the io i want.
i know you can get "root" for a shell, but not sure what all would work for that. guessing it'd still block some things going through to the actual fone env. and that doesn't cover kernel modules, especially ones that conflict with what's running.5

code, who is you playin wit? back that app up
brought up clippy - thought of this
i love it. musik is so good, and the video brings me joy bc i'm old and a grumpy bitter person that kinda misses the shitty dial-up days in some ways
So, this is a place I can possibly get some feedback on this and have never really been able to explain it to anyone because they lack the knowledge. Hopefully there are some programmer philosophers/psychologist here.
Thought - you know? That thing we do every day? The main component that we use to communicate?
I find I think in OO, ringed holons of sorts. There is a subject, and various subjects within that subject. Say colors that link to ranges of wavelengths.
And I see quite often, especially when arguing or mad, that this logical connection breaks down in other people. e.g. you will say you dont like a specific flower, and then all of a sudden someone assumes you hate flowers. Or even bigger leaps in logic, assumes you hate nature. Jumps up a OO class or two.
Anyone else find the OO model of categorizing things in their mind? Anyone else notice people can't prioritize and organize 'data' into a model that makes sense and agrees with itself?
It pisses me off to no end when people get mad because they can't keep topics together, or make arguments up in their head because they can't coherently remember and link what they just input. Worse yet, when they can't understand how I link things together and me explaining ~this~ concept. How they are incapable of grasping similar objects similarities but are able to go, "You said something is hostile? I'm using that word now because I heard it, and now bananas are hostile because you used a banana as an example for something with a peel while explaining layers of objects." (Shit example, just a "wtf" in logic leaping)
end rant. if it doesn't make sense, sry not sry. if someone gets it. phew
just opened a ticket with a software provider because the new version is crap, crashes, and doesn't even function properly
get an temp ftp account made (for some...reason?) and an e-mail with the user and pass in plain text in a single e-mail

Yo, remember when @Alice parodied the millenial 404 message? It was hilarious, but now it's gone :c
Has anyone saved it by any chance? I don't want this to be lost forever, it was too good :c5
omg. do some people not have memory? do they not realize not everyone has the same skill level? internet speed or access?
from people being hypocrites and right out assholes or morons
people dogging on jokes
you can go to a profile and read recent comments - to see someone doing or bitching about something they then bitch about or do a day or few later/before. click their rants, "zomg why for do dis?" *scroll* "watch me do dis thing i bitch about"
and if you are going to complain to people about not being able to google - maybe trying googling a dictionary and look up the word "joke" that is in the tag. if you dont think it's funny, or it's overused, don't want to join in, or w/e, stfu and let others have fun ffs
are you an asshole? or just an idiot?2

earlier i saw LG had a product page with bad text. was missing the "x" in dimesions and just has "62 57.2" or w/e, and the next gen/version's page was fine
love seeing big names have simple mistakes.
and everyone's always so worried how good they need to be to get into w/e field -.-
no one knows what they're doing anyway
I wouldn't say it is the worst. But it certainly had a lot of problems.
The 3D platform with drag and drop code. You could do a lot, but God help you if you didn't have a fast computer.
The worst is that it didn't have an auto save feature back when I worked on it. (No idea if they ever patched that)
You were SOL if you worked for an hour and forgot to save anything.4
Looks like @alice is an Authoring Lifecycle Collaboration Environment created by i4i
Isn't calling yourself 'vector artist' just too much? It's when you and Picaso meet at a party, you tell your friends "we have a lot in common!"
Same thing goes with makeup artist.3
jfc, a lot of ppl on here assume stupidity
you sure you're ranting? and you're not just an a$$h0l33
was gona share this earlier, haven't read in a while. but had a rush and ack >_<
worst "collab" or "group" proj?
hah! the job i have now
was moved half way across the USA, and as far as the business is concerned, to be with the actual team i'm on.
before moving i was constantly told to do something, well wait now don't, slow down it's not a race (i wasn't racing).
move, and after a couple months of the same i start doing someone's work who got a new position (he was where i moved from). do that guy's job for a year (isolated and nothing to do with the team)
eventually "done" with that guy's job and start getting back into the swing of things. lead/boss makes it sound like he'll have something for me to do every day and then never talks to me until the next day when he has some other exciting new proj i'll never be a part of
couple months go by, surprise! someone forgot a few things from that guy's job i was doing. -.- aufkm?
99% i've done at this job has been for naught. the work i have done is only usable by the few who actually have that program installed. oh and that program got sold to another company and it's been behaving like shit ever since.
should have just paid me the 2+ years salary to quit when i got this job
i mean i guess it's the opposite of a collab? but the purpose was to work on a team so idk, same diff to me
interview for a new position within the company (under contract bc of the move and can't leave w/o paying them) is coming up, also a chance to move back home *fingers crossed*
ah, going through old code
when people would flame each other fixing/patching up code. even if they were friends
when shoutouts meant something
now everyone's polite and shit. no one really knows each other from what i can tell, not in a friendly way.
it's like it flipped from friendly but 'mean' (rough) on the outside to fake polite and friendly on the outside and competitive and for themselves on the inside
why do fones advertise 128gb storage? it's hard af to find one you can actually buy. or maybe it's my wonderful luck and life fukery
playing random music - this comes on
first time i heard it was the intro riff on some keygen lol
seen a number of AndroidStudio rants
i'm wondering if the plethora of android apps is what made caused AndroidStudio
maybe they were just like, "ya gotta get these number down some how. how about we make it so it's insanely hard to use the standard IDE? like, every time you load up it fuks something up on purpose. ya, that'll stop a lot of people from developing a 2-bit app"
that's what i'm telling myself from now on
make a site about ranting
others immediately flock to aggitate, poke and prod using said rant =p
