I guess there's no escaping it. Aussies are dumb5
Well that's it folks,
Australia has started to shutdown and become the isolated island it once was again, even more so with states shutting down independently.
Atleast we have the intern -
fuck, got to reboot the modem... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...
where was i, oh yea -
internet right? It's not like the NBN wasn't designed to have every fucking Aussie using it at once or anything 🙄
Ladies, gentlemen and fellow Aussie ranters....
Today is the day, I finnaly admit defeat on running GMS2 on a Linux distro...
Depsite the use of multiple wine version, swapping between 32 and 64 bit installations, throwing mono in as well as attempting with .NET core, even with all of the above at once (Don't ask).
With many hours behind me and many... many... many broken installs and dead VM's, I am admitting defeat.
The war between me and wanting to use a product I paid for where ever I wanted has come to an end and I am the only casualty in this war.
*Salutes and the last post starts playing in the distance*5
Stay safe all my other Aussie Dev friends currently getting pelted with all the storms in the east...
(Yes we are still on fire for anyone who isn't Aussie)18
Two friends (doing part time degree in Digital System Security awarded by a pretty well known Aussie Uni) hired me to do their final year project.
I was like "Sure,extra money + a project to apply my newly learned laravel skills". So,I quoted them a certain price for the whole project. Remember,even after I started the project, they have no clear vision. Both of them are like "Sure,man whatever is easier for you". And the system at their uni is that they need to meet with their project supervisor every 2 weeks. If the supervisor wanted to change sth,they relay it to me and I need to add/modify...so the same process has been going on for about 2 months. I was expecting to finish the project within the first month but now they keep requesting.. What I've charged was for their supposedly version 1.
So my mistakes here -
Working with friend/ not setting a line between work and friendship.
Charging by the whole project(without even really knowing what the customers are expecting) should have charged hourly rate.
The good thing here is that I was thinking about going for a part time degree(still thinking about it) previously it was 100% now it's only 50-50
Yep another drinking warning, my mates and I plan on making an Aussie flag of VB and great northen that's the size of a shed, RIP2
Just throwing it out there but curious how many of us Aussie Devs are around the Melbourne area?
Would love to meet each other for a piss up... I mean meetup for a few lemonades and quiet games of pool :-3
Can we mix cocktails (of course not with soda) and keep them in the fridge? Just like how we compile libraries for future use. I'm too lazy (read Aussie) to mix cocktails in the evening while watching a movie or playing Ace Combat 74
Some good news for aussie devs working from home:
Easy tax deductions for working from home. 80 cents per hour
! Rant... Advice.
Looking for a new server to host my clients websites.
Worked with WHM and CPanel until now.
Think it's time for a Vps and looking at prices between managed and self managed and after some experienced advice.
Where do I start with learning about managing a server, what's best options (I'd like to stay with Apache and cpanel as I understand it).
Any recommendations for Aussie vps?
