Search - "alphabet"
Nothing has ever taken the place of floppy disks' drive letters (A: and B:) . They will fovever have their place in our hearts and in the alphabet.10
Elon Musk makes a front end website containing a single alphabet in html and everyone loses their mind. Meanwhile me deploying with heroku to host the awesome fb-like rails app I made and no one gives a fuck to open it19
The website of Alphabet(parent company of Google) - https://abc.xyz, has hidden link to Hooli, the tech company from silicon valley series.
i prefer my keyboard than the alphabet.
because U and I are right next to each other ;)
ofc, Jk is right below it. hahaha3
Just wrote a brute-force attack simulation in c. Going to run it on actual hardware, with an 8-character limit, including alphabet (Upper and lower case), 0-9 and a few special characters and see if it gets done tonight ;)
I'll see you all in about 360 trillion operations.11
Anyone ever wondered what would happen if you tried to put more than 26 (numbers in alphabet) drives into windows?9
That complete mental block when you know where you want to be and you know where you are but you look at the code and it's like looking at alphabet soup 😞2
I wish we could have more letters in Alphabet :( :( . Got it in the morning and after a restar everything gone. Lost the haven of DVD drive.....8
According to my predecessor, naming variables is easy. You just hang a poster of the alphabet on the wall and start throwing darts. The letter you skewer is your next variable.
If you run out of letters, start again - but dual wield the darts1
Sometimes I don't want my co-workers to see the notes I write on a meeting, for several reasons: Maybe they might have bad intentions (yes, I'm a little bit paranoid), or sometimes I wrote stupid stuff just to concentrate or remember things faster, or I want to practice my cyrillic alphabet.
What do you think? how do you take "secret" notes on a meeting? Any slav in here that could tell me if he/she understands my calligraphy? XD30
Let’s continue with the last rant.
Sometimes, when I wrote notes to myself that are extremely, extremely secret but I don’t plan to use it for more than a day, I use alef-bet.
I have to admmit I’m a disaster with sofit letters and vowels, and that’s why I don’t make secret and long lasting notes in this alphabet (that actually is not even an alphabet, it’s an abyad).
Well, I guess I have too much deadtime 😂
What I tried to write is “Echar una llamada a las 10:30” (Make a call at 10:30). I hope I didn’t write some stupid stuff instead XD
I’m not jew, but I find this writing interesting 🤔 the most hard way to write I’ve ever tried13
I really can't remember, but what I can remember is that we had this little kids computer which had the alphabet on it and whenever you pressed a letter it would get pronounced and that's the story of how I learned the English alphabet before I went to school.1
So, I wanted to find a new way to arrange my language's alphabet. Atm, I'm loosely using latin's system even though my system is weird;
A B K D E F G H I IE SH L M N O P R S T U V
So, I remember that another language (I think Japanese) uses a poem with every letter to figure the order of their letters, so I decided to do the same.
Only problem is: My current word list is very limited, some of the letters I needed only existed in specific words (aka, the word for "Dark") so I ended up making a very depressing poem.
Enjoy! Or not.. I'm not going to tell you what to do.
English translation below. I also will post images of it written in my language's script, as well as one line in my language's cursive script (I'm not doing the whole thing in cursive because fuck that)
Seh ninfuat seh nem fieta; Seka sato nem fiekm juna jenes sermin.
Seh ninfuat sif nemsin netua niet; Seka sem sedma nemat sargo no
nrokniet sam fiekmin sehim sepra.
Sehim sinta nem nara niv nakliet.
Seh nem sine fieta.
I say I am well; But all is dark before day begins.
I say it isn't too much; But this place is a farm of
preasure that blackens my soul.
My mind is ever in agony.
I am not well.7
Bored waiting for a long running test cycle to complete, so...
Monopoly: Software Dev edition.
All properties are companies with apple and alphabet being the most expensive ones, course the online version plugs into stock tickers to accurately reflect the current share price.
All railroads are broadband providers.
You don't build houses or hotels, but patent portfolios and 'landing on another property' becomes 'infringing on a patent'.
- Kickstarter refund, collect £200
- Hit by ransomware, pay 1bitcoin.
- You are sued in East Texas, go straight to jail, do not pass go, do not collect dividends.
- Get out of court free card.
Yeah, I'm that bored that I'm rewriting bloody monopoly...5
Kotlin and mother tongue
In my mother tongue (my first language which is Kikuyu) we do not have the letter L in our alphabet thus meaning L and R to us is similar thus pronounced the same.
Then Kotlin makes life hard for devs who got a mother influence in their speech from my tribe. Was having a talk with fellow dev who is my tribe mate and we had an issue agreeing between val and var hehe.
We had to write it down to tell which is which.
Thankyou Kotlin for making my day.6
Working on an AI that learns to generate quatrains, by only feeding it every letter of the alphabet at the beginning.
It's learning super slowly, but theoretically it works. And with slowly I mean it takes 5000 iterations just to realize the optimal letter frequency to generate a word that is real.
Please just kill me.2
Heey, it's me, D3add3d! As you might remember there was a crypto riddle posted by @Kimmax approx. a month ago. Now I'm here with another crypto riddle, it should be fairly easy one. The previous riddle was based on PGP so no rotation of alphabet was involved.
Here is the riddle:

Student Account Password at the university. No changes the default. It's their DOB and first two letters of the name.
Open Database ( I am the Placement Representative )
Add the first two alphabet
Wanted to make an account on Payoneer to get paid from 99designs for the stuff I make there.
Entered my password, got error.
"Please use only the latin alphabet, a-z and 0-9"
SERIOUSLY, it's banking stuff. how can they not allow secure passwords? *sitting here, crying"6
Soon every hacker can move to Toronto and play real-life Watch Dogs.
Youtube UX on iPhone. Fucking annoying! In fact google or alphabet have completely disengaged with the user on virtually everything. It's not a game, people have to actually use this shit.2
Girl: "Professor I don't really understand the algorithm. Can you please write it on the board again?"
Professor writes down the alphabet.
Girl: "I don't get it."
We were talking about traversing a Binary search tree in Inorder traversal.2
Alphabet has stake in Uber.
Waymo is partnering with Lyft.
Alphabet is gonna be the future of autonomous vehicles.
Now, how far that future is a whole new question entirely. 🤔3
Who the fuck is responsible for the ui/ux of the youtube app its fucking annoyingly shit. Terrible!! Fucking start again you alphabet wankers.5
The ability to ssh to an Earth terminal.
chown -R sionc /socialmedia/facebook
chown -R sionc /alphabet
I would then have the resources to do way bigger projects. Elon Musk can keep his businesses though. I like Elon Musk.
I'd maybe chown my company too, just for fun.
I'd ping my fiancé everytime she goes in a mood and ignores me for half an hour. She'd have to respond and it would annoy her. :3
userdel could be used on the bad people. >:)
There's probably a whole list of these that I've not even thought of that I'll see people write in the comments. I'm pretty sure this could get dangerous.6
There's this ceremony in my family performed after a few months of our birth where we are "taught" the basic alphabet to be symbolic of our commitment to learning and education and there's this part where we use a random book as part of the ceremony. My grandfather asked my uncle to get a random book, and turns out the book that he got for me was 'Unix System Programming'. 😂😂
My PC kept booting into linux cause i installed two OS's on my HDD. Long story short, had to remove the Linux (it was Kali) and i didnt know how. And so started the longest few hours of my life.
I deleted the linux partition feeling like some genius that could speak to computers. To my suprise the computer didnt speak back, i restarted it and the GRUB bootloader had this sheepish grin on its face like as if it was saying, "Not sure who's been speaking to you all this time, but i bet you can hear me now, hehehe". I went down the rabbit hole that we all know and love called the google search bar.
My computer could no longer boot into windows, and i started to question my very existence on this earth. Hours of using our modern day saviour, google of alphabet inc, i came to an eventual conclusion. Grabbed a 4GB flash, made it into a bootable device and said good riddance to bad rubbish.5
What is everyone's opinion on companies/organisations 'too big to fail'...?
I was just pondering on how 'just Google it' has become so 'natural' as a way of saying search the Internet. The more I think about it, the less I like it.
I know the chances of them failing/crumbling are neary zero (hence the name) but if an org, Ie Alphabet, made some shit decisions and bankrupted their company, what would happen then? Any ideas? I don't mean in terms of social fallout, economic etc.
I mean in terms of network infrastructure, them being such a central part of 'the web', all their Dns services, their backbone links, Google drive, Google fiber etc. What would happen to all user data? Just be destroyed?
I've never 'seen' a large tech company collapse, but just wander as to how that process would work for such a huge organisation, and the literal mountains of data they have which will need destroying or relocating.
Inb4 watch Mr robot hurrr7
FOMO strikes again.... Bought stocks over the last few weeks... that are now plunging..
Maybe I should've just bought Amazon again., Or maybe GOOGL.. at least they can't go bankrupt... But Alphabet feels so boring now....22
Working on writing a Morse interpreter in Java..
I find out I have to initialize a collection of a specific alphabet with unique symbols in it..
I am too lazy to come up with something right now..
And thus I start repeatedly performing the following actions:
down, left, insert apostrophe
for stuff like putting values into my Map<Character, char>.
Now my purposefully rhythmic typing sounds like a galloping horse. Tackatack, tackatack, tackatack! ♫
"[Degenerate type is] a form of canned cynicism which will doom its perpetrators to a special room in hell where lovely little children of all races, creeds, and religions are eternally batched in gentle rosy and amber glows, singing 'It’s a small world after all.' There’s no reason to create an alphabet which looks like it leaked out a diaper." - Peter Fraterdeus
JESUS CHRIST GOOGLE YOU ARE A MULTIBILLION DOLLAR COMPANY HOW THE FUCK IS YOUR WEBSITE DESIGN SO SHIT?
goddamit with the amount of fucking whitespace on YouTube I could fit an entire fucking copy of the website in.4
"We use the letters of our alphabet every day with the utmost ease and unconcern, taking them for granted as the air we breathe. We do not realize that each of these letters is at our service today only as the result of a long and laboriously slow process of evolution in the age-old art of writing." - Douglas C. McMurtle1
I know the ascii table values of lowercase and uppercase alphabet letters. I don't know whether to be proud or ashamed.
First contact with XEN.
Xen Orchestrator UI / Web, logged in first time...
Wow. The UI is a big giant mess...
I don't care for this fucking bling bling shit... Need to have an overview of all VMs.
Oh Lord... Wtf... Icon hell...
Hm, I need more detailed information... Ah. Found the button.
Wtf... What's taking so long...
Bloody shit.... Why does it include real data diagrams of usage statistic per row????!!! (had pagination set to 100 rows, one row is one VM)...
Bloody christ, ain't no option to configure that monstrosity... Export function?... Nope... Great. This will be a giant fuckfest...
Rest API? Nope.... Non existent as it seems. Thought that would be common in the 21st century... Guess what, nope.
Oh interesting. An cli client in NPM?
Hm, pretty scarce documentation...
Poked it a bit... Got first results...
xo-cli --list-objects type=VM
Let's take a look...
Oh JSON. Gooooooo(d)....
Wow. The document structure looks like someone puked out alphabet soup...
Or maybe the dev had hemorrhagic fever and was suffering from delusion and blood loss.
After this... More than devastating experience...
I took a look at Proxmox REST API.
Sweet jesus. That's like... Stone Age to 23rd century. Oo
Seriously... It seems not so hard to define an API to get the data of all VMs... Without suffering a traumatic brain injury.1
