What a stupid configuration of firewall at my work:
devrant -> blocked because of entertainment category.
xvideos -> no problem at all.
Conclusion: sysadmin likes watching porn.14
"Chrome 66 arrives with autoplaying content blocked by default"
Fuck yeah! Fuck you CNET, Mashables and all the other retard companies that did that.13
A client requested that right-clicks be blocked on a website so that users couldn't copy (it on their words, "steal") content...37
My company just blocked devRant ip...
Well, now I need to use my own mobile data to procrastinate42
Client: I want all cookies blocked on my computer.
Me: Are you sure? Some things won't work if i do that. Like using online banking.
Client: I don't use it, so it's fine.
*Two weeks pass. I have to come back and see three bankcards laying on the table*
Client: I'm not able to use online banking anymore. Can you fix it?
Come on! You pay me to give advice and help out with problems. The least you could do is listen.10
Manager asked for access to server with admin rights for a third party contractor and I questioned him... His answer?
- Your are gonna give access to anyone that needs access.
I gave. Went for a 15 days vacation.
Our server got blocked by our cloud provider because of ssh brute force attempt coming from it and the company website went offline during a big ass meeting because of that.
Made me giggle :)11
The DNS server I'm writing in PHP (largely taken from another project) is starting to work!
Next to just blocking queries it logs every blocked query so I can have stats :3
A little terminal output:65
When your boss asks you to create an integration for fb but fb is blocked at the office and he refuses to give you access.
Had a PR blocked yesterday. Oh god, have I introduced a memory leak? Have I not added unit tests? Is there a bug? What horrible thing have I unknowingly done?
... added comments to some code.
Yep apparently “our code needs to be readable without comments, please remove them”.
Time to move on, no signs of intelligent life here.39
My college internet sucks!
It was totally fine upto when they blocked facebook and other social networking sites. 😕
Then they blocked youtube! 🤧 Ok, that was fine too!
But now they've blocked Stack Overflow! WTF!! 😭😭
This is the biggest punishment for any computer engineering student.
And there's no one to complain about it!😡😡 They've also blocked Ubuntu forums and several other helping sites! And they expect us to code without using these helpers. FML47
So, I’m a software engineer at one of the FANG companies, and a “friend” from college that I haven’t talked to in years suddenly messages me, asking for my work email. I’m like, why would you ever need that? And he replies, “I’m gonna send you an email with a link, can you open it from your work computer? I’ll pay you for doing that, and it’s totally legal.”
Yeah... how about fuck no.
He blocked me after I refused.11
My school has every port except 80 and sometimes 443 blocked.
But their webfilter allows you to click "close this message" and continue to the blocked site.
I don't understand their priorities..20
Windows 10!! WHAT THE FUCKING WHAT do you think you're doing?? Why am I getting a message saying admin has blocked my access to Services when I AM THE FUCKING ADMIN! And I sure as hell didn't block me!!!!!!!!13
Reinstalled my dedicated server and realized (afterwards) that I just erased my entire openvpn/mysql auth setup and I don't have an entirely working copy.
Okay, nothing I can do about that afterwards, setup csf right away, monitored the auth log for a minute and noticed one ip which had just connected and found it weird somehow. Blocked the ip.
Then, one second later, as my console stopped responding and that ip address suddenly looked veeeery familiar, I realized I just blocked myself. (the blocks persist across reboots)
Went to the control panel and hit the reinstall button. Confirmed, and two seconds later I realized I could just have connected to any of my own fucking vpn services to unblock myself.
What in the living fuck is wrong with me @_@30
List of things that my fucking corporate proxy blocks
* The NPM registry
List of things that aren't blocked
* Google drive
Half my mobile data is burned away by NPM sinkholes. Fuck this place.22
"GitHub blocked all Iranian accounts without any prior notice and they don’t give us a chance to download a backup of our data. Here is a screenshot from GitHub support response to a developer who sends a request for backup"
Got to work this morning only to find out devRant is now on the list of blocked social media sites here. Let the job search begin.17
I don't use Google/Facebook for privacy reasons (and their sub-services etc). Haven't used them for ages but noticed that google still loads a lot of domains like analytics etc. This goes for facebook as well.
I now blocked a lot of google/facebook domains through my hosts file.
It's funny to see the amount of DNS requests to those fb/google connected domains nearly go to zero and also the fact that I literally can't load google/facebook anymore!132
Apparently they didn't want to hear about my vulnerabilities I found because they blocked my IP address.
Seriously? I just wanted to do a disclosure of potential exploits / security issues10
Response time of different people on Whatsapp:

Can't ssh to my vps at work; hello new hobby project!
(server hosted on vps, http request -> shell -> http response)
Next up is supporting an interactive shell18
google drive, dropbox, onedrive and GITHUB (😞) blocked for political reasons in Turkey...
Little thought for the dev's out there and every people that uses those services for work19
So just recently my school blocked the following for unknown reasons websites
The hacker news
The Debian package repositories yea all of em
And all domains that end in .io
Now some of you out there are probably just saying "well just use a vpn" the answer to that is I can't the only device I have a locked down school iPad can't install apps cannot delete apps cannot change vpn or proxy setting's I cannot use Safari private tab they have google safe search restricted to "on" they even have "safari restricted mode which lets safari choose what it wants to block" and even when I'm on my home wifi it's s still blocked as they use Cisco security connector THIS IS HELL
Also this is my first post :)29
Work in a company where Github, StackOverflow, Slack is Blocked by a Firewall and Develop code which they think are futuristic but of Stone age :-(9
enabling firewall on a vps to secure my docker containers and forgetting to add openssh to allowed list --> ssh blocked 😃🔫24
Have been working on a frontend with actual stats for the DNS server I'm building. This is the result so far (real stats, red blocked domains are marked by me (in redis) as surveillance domains), thoughts?menu18
TL;DR: I have been changing stuff on a school computer and found various workarounds to do things that were blocked by the sysadmin and my classmates think I am a hacker.
I guess war has officially been declared between me and my school's sysadmin.
It all started about two weeks ago. I was bored while writing a report on a school computer, so I decided to lauch Chrome and pressed F12. Nothing happened, so I closed the window and opened Firefox. It worked there, and a few classmates started to scatter around me. They thought I was hacking a website so that changes would be permanent.
But what really matters in this story is that a few days later, nobody could start Firefox anymore, a message popped up saying the administrator blocked the application. Somebody must have reported it.
I also tried executing a Batch file, not succesful of course. But surprisingly enough .cmd files could be executed. But this has also been fixed a few days after.
So today I managed to remove Chrome's settings folder and the console popped up this time. Again, this was hacking from my classmates' point of view, so right now I am waiting for Chrome to be blocked. There are no other browsers currently installed, so let's see what happens.18
TL;DR they blocked github
I work remotely, that means every once in a while I take my laptop and travel somewhere, work and have fun. This week I am visiting Turkey, they just blocked github 2 days ago... Freaking github... who does that?! and why?!7
Youtube is blocked on the long distance bus wifi. I use a vpn, feeling like hacker man. Now they limited the data to 150 MB. Don't feel like hacker man anymore6
Installed my pihole a few days ago and not a very high percentage blocked.
Added google/facebook/twitter and some more to the wildcard (regex) blacklist and BAM, so many blocked queries!
Fuck Google, Facebook, twitter and other mass surveillance companies.26
manager (not technical) : we need to add blocking feature to our social media.
me : adding block feature will take 2 weeks developing.
manager (not technical) : why it takes too much time to develop you can just delete the user from the database if a user blocked him.
me : hahahaha ... just ... delete ...
manager (not technical): ...
me : hahahhahahhaha.....
School sent out a mass email asking students to stop using VPNs to get around sites being blocked. They say their technology team is working on improving filters and shit. Let's be real that isn't going to stop ANYONE lmfao...4
It's very satisfying to setup Pi-Hole on a vps, point your dns to it, adding the words Facebook and Google to the wildcard blacklist and seeing that literally any request containing either one of those words gets blocked.
On the other hand, it's funny to see that devRant (devrantron) performs around 1k+ requests to devRant every 15 minutes.19
*receive candidate profile from HR*
Give it a quick read, spot a link to a site the dev made for a clothing company.
*get blocked by the company's firewall*
mfw the sysadmin now thinks i'm shopping lingerie during work hours.5
My dystopian fuckwad of a government just blocked duckduckgo.
China just took some of our land, so they got around to banning chinese apps on local internet. And while they were at it, for no reason they blocked a bunch of privacy apps and duckduckgo. Which is an American company.
How fucking convenient.21
I don't know who the fuck told the I.T. Manager to block the website without informing the employees.
Mother fucker blocked Bitbucket. I' am going to fuck his ass on Monday.10
A common scenario strikes again today:
- Blocked on a problem at the end of the day
- Tell my wife I'm headed home
- Inspiration strikes
- time flies by coding in the zone
- realize I'm super late
- run out the door like a crazy person1
Update on my rant from yesterday where I mailed my hosting admin that I got blocked.
I am not offended
Check out the whole conversation. Its by far the best converstation over mail.19
So, our SMART Dean decided to have the collage WiFi MONITORED instead of blocking INAPPROPRIATE sites as blocked sites are easy to tackle...
What we did? Hosted a site using free hosting server with codes to simply get INAPPROPRIATE videos, split, and rename them and change the extension to PDF...
OUR COLLAGE WI-FI IS EXPERIENCING HUGE DOWNLOADS OF EBOOKS NOW!!! 😎😎😎😎22
Devrant client update:
- load indicator on ajax execs
- changed the design yet again, hopefully final this time lol
- implemented ajax content loading so the menubar doesn't flash
- block users/keywords plugins done, only left to find a clean way to integrate it with the upcoming notifications, so no notifications are fired for blocked users or posts with blocked keywords (similar to twitter mute keywords)
- usernames linkifier plugin
- links get unshortened on feed too (via plugin), without losing the ability to press on a post
next is (just to name a few, the trello list is far bigger by now)
- local notifications, should be firing without GCM/FCM too hopefully, which would be great for people on here that de-googled entirely and don't want microG
- port some of my userscript plugins I haven't yet
- theme system
- global and plugin settings
- plugin update system
- plugin import checks for obfuscated code, one line etc. and warns the user
- client update system8
My work recently blocked all social media connections on their network.
On the plus side, they missed devRant 😄2
So IT just blocked all web browsers at work apart from internet explorer.....
I have been using it for 2 hours and I think I'm about ready to end it all....17
She: What's your idea about perfect date ?
Me: I'll recommend mm/dd/yyyy.. others are really confusing
It seems like GitHub just got blocked here in China...
the gov: *talks about the importance of tech-related education all day long*
also the gov: *blocks every major site that provides good programming-related resources/education*42
For fucks sack I just created my server and fail2ban already blocked 6 IP addresses dafuq is going on on the internet 😓20
I'm going to make 4 statements of which only 3 are true. You tell me in the comments which 3 are true.
1. At my job in the marketing department, I manage our Facebook ads campaign where we spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising.
2. MIS department inexplicably blocked the marketing dept from the Facebook domain altogether near the end of the day.
3. They also block Dropbox although we still have to manage all the distribution of digital video and commercials to our tv advertisers.
4. I work in a technically progressive environment that understands how things work online.2
port 22 - blocked
steam - blocked
Have to prove you are human, while visiting every other website

P E A K. S E C U R I T Y.16
Sigh.That day again where I have to work from the client's stupid office.
- Spotify blocked

- Can't ssh to my private VM
- Office is stuffy and no fresh air.Smells like feet and french fries mixed.

Sigh. 6 more hours to go.22
Peaceful protest #2:
Spotify desktop application is blocked due to "bandwidth issues", but web version works fine. Now I listen to music on YouTube, in 1080p, and I like to leave it on for the night...14
Dev(null networking knowledge): -"i've already deployed the web but it isn't up."
Boss(strong networking skills): Found port 80 blocked.
-Option A: open port 80.
-Option B: disable firewall.
Choose option B.
I blocked my window to prevent light from coming in anddddd when I woke up today I thought it was nighttime still... It's 1 pm now.4
In a moment of boredom I decided to pen test the new system I've been writing on the live server. Ran sqlmap but forgot to proxy my connection.
DDOS protection kicked in and blocked the entire offices connection to the server, had to drive home quickly to use my home internet to un-blacklist my office ip. 😂10
PM: hows the android app going?
Android Dev: gradle downloading... blocked by network admin.

Trying to setup server monitoring for one server (will deploy it on all my servers once this works well).
Getting these email notifs to work is a bitch 😅
(can't do pushover etc since those require GCM and I've got Google blocked out of my phone)20
Hey devBanner guys..i forget who handles the project
@kimmax and @CozyPlanes come to mind?
question: why block \r\n ect, when i can still insert new lines?20
(L)user - Is Youtube blocked?
— I don’t know, have you tried it...?
(L) - Well no, but I just wanted to ask before trying it.
Are you kidding me?!7
My school fucking blocked duckduckgo today.
I'm not surprised, I knew this would happen eventually because this school is a prison and the administrators feel that they have to know your every fucking move.
Honestly I thought it was pretty funny too because I don't know anybody else at school using ddg, which means they probably just saw this one kid getting around being tracked and said "that damn kid." (Imagine I'm waving my finger around condescendingly like an old woman.)
It also could just be that they saw me using an unfamiliar url more than normal and assumed it was malicious or some kind of distraction. But I'm willing to bet money they just didn't like that they couldn't track me.23
Just got an email from a professor.
"Please note that there are times that are blocked on the schedule! I’d also ask that you not pick a time marked as 'free'."
Then when do we meet7
This next one is dedicated to a couple of special people at my workplace:
- The person who uploaded internal-use-only code to a personal repository on GitHub
- The network team that has blocked any and all access to GitHub
- The obscured mass of management bureaucracy that makes it pretty much impossible for anyone at my level to make any sort of appeal
This one's for you:
A wild "Using this website in incognito mode requires a paid subscription" blocking div appears
Normal people: okay... *proceeds to exit incognito mode*
Developers: huh.. Bitch please.. *inspect element, hide blocking div. Select html tag, remove "overflow: hidden". Profit*
Why would anyone want to block surfing incognito anyway? They should be encouraging it actually..
PS:, While writing this, wondering if content for subscribed users is also locked this way.. Now that would be hilarious.4
Something strange just happened, activated Fail2ban on another server and instantly blocked me when I already had ssh session open >_>
Does macOS terminal keep on sending ssh authentication requests? Or is my OpenVPN that keeps on sending requests.
Why does this keep on happening to me T_T18
I just set up pihole again.
So many things being blocked. Byebye Facebook!
Everything is so fast. I love it.
1.3M domains blocked 😍8
Apparently the firewall at work has blocked access our git repo since there are too many consecutive requests to it.3
I’m a college senior now. The best CS class I ever took was in high school. Our teacher didn’t know how to write software, instead he went around on day one and has us submit proposals for year long projects.
With each project, we had to find mentors in the industry who could help us if we got blocked. Every other week we meet with the teacher (who was more a facilitator) and described how the project was coming.
The results? We had final products that were well beyond the expectations of a high school and more impressive than any project I’ve seen at my university.
Why can’t all STEM programs be like that? Students have incredible ability, but are blocked by traditional education. Let students set the bar.1
Here we go again… a new update for devRant unofficial UWP blocked by Microsoft because contains "profanity"...
The screenshots which contain """profanity""" (probably bad words are enough to violate the rules) are still the same you can already find in the store, so even without this update they are visible...15
Client declined to allow billing over the weekend, demanded I work 20 hours. Task will be mysteriously blocked or delayed for the next two days as a result.6
After being in China for one week,I realized how much I actually use Google during the day.don't know how they do this but even using a VPN is not a solution most of the times :-? At least devRant is not blocked here;)13
Today the IT deparment update the firewall's configuration, they blocked almost every website except email and Google.
- Blocked some systems outside the organization, there are in another building and also network
- I can search on Google but I can't see the results outside Google
- Forget about download depencies, libraries, deploy code to outside services, search at StackOverflow
I JUST WANNA SAY GOOD JOB, GUYS
PS: The firewall also block the SSH port, I had explained to my boss and he sent a request for allowing the port, so far no answer3
Facebook was forcing me to use their messenger app to read my messages on my mobile. I used to get the desktop version and everything was annoying but worked.
Now they blocked this by redirecting when trying to do that.....
ARE YOU RETARDED, YOU SHITHEADED DICKS?17
I miss read someones post for help about a "Blocked Drain" as "Block Chain". I think I've had enough internet for one day...
*Creates a rest api that runs on localhost:8080*
*Creates React front end that runs on localhost:3000*
*Sends a GET request to api*
*Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy...*
Thats my fucking dev environment and its my local fucking host! Let me just send a fucking request to my own fucking machine you piece of shit! Why the fuck they didn't add an exclusion to fucking localhost?!?11
What I should do:
- organise my files
- make a pp presentation for English that I haven't even started
- learn for a test about insurances
- learn about characterising, processing and evaluating data
- more shit
What I do:
- browse devrant
- play games
- flash a new ROM until I find a good one
- restore a backup
- flash another ROM
- restore a backup
- go with the least worst ROM I had installed
- FUCKING SLEEP
At least I completely blocked YouTube...6
We have this incredible Jira system that allows anyone with half a brain to report anomalies, add some screenshots in it, a description, links, everything.
Then WHY THE FUCK would you add a fucking docx file in which there are 2 lines and one screenshot? What blocked you to add the fucking content of your docx shit to the fucking Jira?
I swear to god, some people should be medically forbidden to come close to a computer4
Just found out that Microsoft Edge sends unbelievable many requests to the Server if you keep Holding Ctrl + R (Reload site)
Don't tr it at home haha
Now i got temporarily blocked on StackExchange (for About 8 h):10
So I work as a "Web Development Lead"
Which means I lead (frontend,backend and infrastructure teams)
Also I am in charge of infrastructure or devops or whatever you call it, which means I handle production issues, dev and staging environments,...etc
and I am a team of one, and today I asked for a day off because it's my wife's birthday
and suddenly everyone is blocked, everything is on fire, and the phone is not stopping ringing, I had to go out of the cinema theater to answer the non-stopping calls
I AM ASKING FOR A SINGLE DAY, A FUCKING DAY, EVEN IF SOMEONE IS BLOCKED SO WHAT IT'S NOT EVEN A DAY I ONLY NEED 6 HOURS
IS TO TOO MUCH FUCKING TO ASK4
I """""accidentally"""'" found some security holes in my school's Windows public computer setup.
Every student and teacher has a personal Active Directory, obviously they should be able to only see their own right?
oh wait the directory up button in explorer shows me all of them and I have r/w access to teacher and student ADs.
Also, the command prompt, Run prompt ad Explorer path bar are disabled...
...but batch scripts work.
Surely I can't do something dumb like--- oh, regedit's blocked but not the reg command.
They use the-- WHY IS GPEDIT NOT BLOCKED
Well what the fuck.
(All of this was responsibly handled by emailing the tech department. They have an email just for this! ...got a bounceback "this person is no longer employed at XYZ School.")6
Dev: Hey I need something from Team B
Manager: Ok I’ll get it from them now
Dev: Unfortunately they have the current time blocked off as uninterrupted coding time for the next two hours.
Manager: Yeah that means they’re not occupied by anybody else. It’s the best time to get a hold of them!
Today, someone asked me to recover the lost data from his phone that he just factory reset with no backup.
Fuck no. I said this many times. I AM NOT A TECH SUPPORT!!
So I said no.
Then he asked me if he the people from the repair shop are able to recover the data.
How the fuck do I know?
I blocked him.1
I hate it when people whine about code reviews. You should never take it personally. We're not against you, we just want good solid code.
I really hate it when it's my boss who's bitching about pull requests. When you throw your hands up and start yelling, "Well I'm blocked, I'm blocked," then you're not helping. You're just being a baby.1
Not hacking per se, but I noticed an email floating between ISP and director about radius server login details, promptly saved for future reference.
One day noticed someone downloading mucho dataro... Pissed me off, interrupting my video stream.
Logged into radius server, blocked MAC address.1

Apple revoked FB and Google's Experimental Certificates!
Way to go Apple! Showing the cojones!
When you send a new update for devRant unofficial UWP to certification and it get blocked because contains profanity and inappropriate content... WTF? 😂12
Why the fuck is this site blocked. How the fuck is it remotely adult content? ITS A GODDAMN WEBGL GAME. And you blocked is as being EDUCATIONAL. WHY THE FUCK WOULD MY SCOOL BAN A GODDAMN EDUCATIONAL WEBSITE?
P.S. for all those that know me, i made a website a year ago, during english class, and it got blocked at school (my goal was to get it blocked). Or so I thought. It turns out it didn't get blocked at my school, it was blocked across the whole county! I feel accomplished.12
You know what?
Last night I was dreaming and all that I’ve seen was fucking preloader.
Seriously. I couldn’t wake up. I tried thinking about something else but couldn’t focus on anything else than fucking preloader spinning around. Just couldn’t get it out of my head.
That was terrible. Am I even human? Or was my dreams server blocked? Damn, I’m gonna sleep with VPN tonight.1
Fucking gmail... why I can't send a ".js" file which is inside a ".rar" archive???
Ok, I understand the security reason, but only if I try to send directly a ".js" file, why you're blocking it also if present inside an archive?
And if I use outlook to send an email to gmail, I don't even receive any notification that my email has been blocked... it's fucking stupid!14
Spending half a day wondering why certain DIVs refused to appear in a custom theme I was building, only to find out the reason why was because AdBlock had blocked the IDs being used.
Have kept AdBlock turned off on my primary dev machine ever since.3
I am currently blocked from doing my job by a firewall policy handed down from corporate that prevents WSL2 from connecting to the internet. Three days of no dev environment and counting.
We make linux software to be hosted on linux in linux containers in linux. We use linux command line tools to make it work.
"NO! WE ARE THE ALL-POWERFUL IT DEPARTMENT AND YOU MUST USE WINDOWS BECAUSE FUCK YOU THAT'S WHY."14
Our office has 3 walls made of glass
There are no blinds/curtains/etc
Every day, between about 1pm and 4pm, they Destroyer of Eyeballs hangs in the sky above my monitor, before it finally gets blocked out by another tower block
I now time-track 3hrs less each day - eventually someone will realise that buying blinds is cheaper than paying me to not work 15hrs/week8
Fuck! I am never gonna get hired again. I fucking suck at live coding. My mind just fucking gets blocked. On simple shit like arrays. I still suck at regular expressions though. Fucking failed Amazon and now wayfare.!!!! Fuck my fucking god dam life.9
So I just decided I'd hotspot my phone to my laptop (as I have no WiFi) and stream a film I've wanted to watch for a while.
Turns out my shite ass mobile provider wants credit card details to prove I'm over 18.
I'm sorry, what?
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? YOU NOSY OVER CONTROLLING SHIT STAINS! THAT IS A PARENT'S JOB, NOT YOURS.
fucking hell. What is wrong with this fucking race?
Oh, and I can't torrent it because that's blocked too.7
My manager: Hey don't be afraid to ask the team for help if you feel blocked on a task.
Also my manager when I ask for help: I think you need to understand the task better before you ask for help.
WTF! Make up your mind. Do you want me to make progress or not? Freaking sucks being the new guy. 😑3
Hey, DBA guy! Security blocked this one port for the database. Can you change the database to a different port?
Me: No, I actually like working here.2
Well then, looks like my pihole attracted the attention of a botnet with 65 zombies attempting a large DNS amplification attack.
Time to unleash the BANHAMMER
Fun fact: only a few hundereds of their requests actually show up in the pihole logs. The other 40k+ requests they attempted were blocked by my firewall :D14
Casual chat with a girl in Facebook.
Me : Hey, What are u doing these days?
She : I'm completed a IT course.
Me : hmm... Interesting, What are the languages you have learnt at the IT course.
She : I learned English
Me : (Close the Chat,
Shuts down the PC)
(Yes, Yes, This is a true story.)4
Today the corporate proxy decided to flake out on me. Every single external site was blocked.
I was shown a very helpful page informing me the site I wanted to visit was blocked. If I had legit need to access the site or believe the site was blocked in error I could contact IT via a helpful link.
And yeah, the IT support site was blocked by the proxy too.1
I got VB script blocked from all the computes in high school
I had a laptop to do my work in class on (my handwriting is terrible, dyslexia and other things) and I was playing around with VB script making a little text adventure game with dialog boxes because I was bored, it got quite long and I was happy with it but then one day when I tried to open the file it said the network administrator had blocked this type of file from being opened... Spoilsports
Gj Mastercard! My card just got blocked because every time I want pay and 3D secure code is needed, every first SMS that day is delayed by 5 minutes so session expires and I have to try again...now it happened quite a few times and card got blocked. Fucking shit...2

Background: I'm in middle school, and two popular games that people liked got blocked. My friend and I made a website with the blocked games on a free 000webhost subdomain. It was a crappy, twenty minute website that I made with just a view counter, the games, and a chat room for people looking for other people to play with.
Story: one day I opened up the chat room where another friend and I were gonna talk about our teacher behind her back. I opened the chat room, and in the previous chat text, there was a line that said "Username: " and a text box. Then, about five lines, each with two text boxes separated by a ":". I knew that it could've been my friend that "made" the site with me (he designed the logo and occasionally modified the HTML), but I suspected not. He wasn't smart enough. Now when I was building the chat room, I internationally didn't put in XSS protection, just to see if someone would catch onto it, and, to my surprise, someone obviously did. Now there's someone in my school, who could be just like me, but I don't know where. Man, I really wanna find him (or her)! Of course, it could be my teachers, who are messing with it and could be trying to get it blocked -_-1
Every piece of work I have to do is blocked, waiting on someone else pulling their finger out. 2 days now, and no progress no matter how much I chase. Bored!7
So... Lots of rants about hacking.
Let me yell you a story...
Two decades ago I was asked to fix the school library computers and block then from using mIRC.
I cleaned all the machines, reinstalled the pirate copy of windows I was provided, blocked installing programs, blocked running of programs except the ones required (office, Netscape) and vnc in every computer, that I could access in a off-site computer.
Next day all the computers had mIRC... Just to show how kids are smart... Someone changed the MIRC.exe to iexplore.exe and that way could execute any program he wanted...
Invisible hard drive? Just use command line (so he could copy mIRC to a hidden folder)
Still, scared lots of kids, wen watching porn and a message would pop up , asking to not watch porn in school, but never couth the guy
Sent my changes before everybody for code review, got git blocked because today was demo day, and ... And asshole guy merged his own PR without code review. That conflicted with my PR. I am going to start posting the shennanigans of asshole guy from now on, just to have a record of his stupidity.10
- Rooted phone
- Blocked certain apps from obtaining permissions
- Blocked apps from preventing taking screenshots
- Hid the annoying Google search bar
- Installed Debian/Ubuntu in a chroot inside the phone
- Installed vim, git and more inside the chroot
Ahhh, feels so good6
Just coded for 12 hours.
One feature is blocked,
2 are ready for testing
And a third needs some development but actually has no task in the backlog,so that one is in limbo.
Tomorrow it will all be done.
Started teaching my 4 yr old daughter basics of instructions. My drawing room has 2x2 feet tiles. I block some tiles by keeping some object in that. There is a target. My kid has to tell me to turn, go right, left, straight, back to reach target n avoid blocked tiles. We have a good fun time n she is picking up fast :)1
I was at my study once where I had to start a node app on a server I couldn't reach because SSH was bound to a port blocked by the network. SSH'd into my vps and from that vps, ssh'd into that box 😁 worked like a charm!
It took me 30min to figure out why jenkins couldn't connect to my repo even though i was sure i got the configuration right this time. As it turned out fail2ban blocked my ip and made all subsequent attempts fail...4
"The tool to push new releases to the data centre blocked us last night. Saying all the nodes are 'unhealthy', resolve the issue(s) first. But then the remote team said 'we have a way around that' so we managed to get it deployed in time. We need to document the process as there were many ... 'shady' processes and steps involved lol"
- Manager explaining how the first production release on our new team went last night
... he called it a success1
Why would someone block the ability to inspect a website? Like I just found one but he forgot to block ctrl + u. He also blocked ctrl + shift + i.13
Okay, I understand that they want to lock down the Chromebooks they send home with us, we don't own them and they have the right to do that. But I'm still annoyed when I find "harmless" stuff is blocked.
They said it themselves that they want us to be able to do basically anything we want web browsing wise on them.
It's not a fun experience to say to your self "hey let's look at the current humble bundles!" just to find that humblebundle.com is blocked for "games". (Which makes sense, but I can't remember any other examples)
Imagine thinking to yourself "I'm going to go to the Os Dev Wiki" and typing that into the Omnibox (tm) and pressing enter, directing you to your favorite search engine duckduckgo, but instead of finding the amazing duckduckgo results page you find the godforsaken securly "THIS PAGE IS BLOCKED" screen.
I can guess why they do that (probably because, to my knowledge, duckduckgo doesn't have any form of "safe-search" feature they can force it to use because they do that) but it's kind of annoying to not be able to use your favorite search engine anymore.
Should I really be getting so annoyed at this? No, because it's not my device, it's theirs and, they have the final say on what goes, but sometimes it really annoys me. I should be, and am, thankful they even let us bring the Chromebooks home, which is pretty cool.
If you want a fun time, just read the reviews on the Securly extension in the chrome web store!6
Trying to send email to someone who is using Office365 for their email hosting.
Outgoing email server IP address is blocked..
Had to phone up the company and tell them, obviously they wouldn't know if anyone else couldn't email them unless they too phoned and asked how come they aren't answering their emails !
I wonder how many customers they are losing because of it !20
You can solve a lot of problems with regex... but you can also create others if you're not careful:
"inadvertently blocked or throttled all domains containing the string t.co rather than blocking only the domain t.co itself"
Remember the time when I couldn't go to school because they were upgrading the internet?
200 megabits down, 200 megabits up. And guess what - NOTHING IS BLOCKED!
Whispers in the dark haunt me:
You are not here to innovate
You are known as a mad scientist and your help will be detrimental to progress
Your wish of change goes against our legacy
You can not do it
It can't be done
You will be blocked
You don't have the experience to accomplish this
It is not easy as it seems
You won't understand
There are political reasons to not to improve
"Our system has detected that this message is[nl]421-4.7.0 suspicious due to the very low reputation of the sending IP address"
Note to self: Don't test on production servers. Gmail has now blocked my ass.
Fucking tired of imbeciles
- who can't tell the difference between if a computer is hanged or the Mouse's cell ran out of battery.
- who constantly ping you when outlook isn't working, you fucking idiot you have to send/receive in order to get a reply in inbox.
- who have deliberately blocked .vbs script which takes backup of Outlook .pst files and keep complaining at the end of the day while I'm fucking about to leave.3
Finally made good use of my RPi and setup pi-hole on it. After a painful 4hour long dist-upgrade and picking the right filters it is working like a charm. Why didn't I make this work earlier.
I've also wrote a little script which queries the api and displays different info on the AMOLED screen that was lying around unused for some time.
In case you are interested (from left to right and bottom), the traffic in the last 10 minutes with the max value on a graph, the most active clients query and blocked ratio as lines relative to the top one, and an overview of the total queries/ blocked queries and total clients.
At least I've finally spent a weekend useful not just playing games and watching anime.5
Headhunter: "For this new role you would be the first developer in the company responsible for both the back and frontend, you will also have to test your deliverables, give support to users and report to the..."
Had to hang up on dat shit 🙉3
"I hope we can soon finish X to do Y", you might think this is the more polite way of asking "are we there yet?", but you're wrong and you're getting blocked for the next 4 days
Some blocker like uBlock origin should come pre-installed by now. I mean at least the malicious stuff could get blocked and the online world could be a bit more safe. Legit, not-in-the-face ads are still okay at times, I guess :/6
How can I use a custom DNS server on my schools network?
They seem to block any DNS that isn't their own. I've tried 126.96.36.199 and the new cloudflare one. Both blocked, it's a real issue because their default dns dies for about a minute every 12/24 hrs causing my VPN to go down.
How do they even block external DNS servers?5
The only one of them which will build your frontend for you and can handle a custom HTTPS domain in one click.
Perfect for spontaneous side projects, especially when they added form handlers.
Too bad it’s blocked here in Russia.4
I fcking hate when my friends come to me for restoring his stupid blocked accounts like Instagram, Facebook, Google etc... OMG I'm a fcking computer technician not a hacker1
I have found a website that allows HTML in comments. They blocked <script>, but not <iframe>. I can just load a script from my personal website using it. What should i do?
iOS (14.2) users:
Can you open epic games in safari?
Wondering it this is some brutal block since the whole Apple/Epic war started or it's just my phone.
Chrome blocked TheGreatSuspender yesterday. All the Chrome installations got that extension removed.
300-400 tabs (in total): *poof*17
Someone stole my CC number and paid a bunch of spam ads on FB with it tonight. When I woke up and blocked it, there's been already 400€ worth of transactions done with it :(
But the real rant is that it took 3 fucking hours before I managed to get in contact with someone at FB who could actually help me. Fuck those AI chat bots & "Tenk yu kom agan" support guys!9
I hate chome OS.
I'm sad to say that because of my school I've used it more than Ubuntu. Chrome really takes the fun out of Linux. I want to access the terminal, but in chome the terminal is an extension's WEBPAGE which got BLOCKED.1
Today's conversation in our odc
Person 1: Jenkins Down
Person 2: YouTube or Facebook
Person 1: No... Twitter
Person 2: Gud it means you guys are not blocked...
😂 😂 😂
"Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://19-" SHUUUUUUUT UUUUUUUUUUUUP FOR FUCKS SAKE
I fucking have app.UseCors(x => x).AllowAnyOrigin().AllowAnyMethod().AllowAnyHeader()); in my startup. It's not supposed to tell me the CORS request did not succeed becuase THERE'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE CORS WHEN I DO THAT.15
You ever tried to debug a date bug when IT has blocked you from modifying your system time? I wouldn't suggest it.2
So our country has fallen into a state of emergency. Access to most popular social networks and messaging apps have been blocked or restricted.9
So I was messing with mitmproxy in my phone and for some reason all Google services are blocked on it.
Apps hang when I suppose they're requesting to Google api, though chrome works for some reason.
I just realised Google even tracks the links you share with your contacts via chrome's address bar.
I'm thinking of going no-Google, any rom recommendations?
So we're about to launch the annual financial reports for a multi-billion corporation, but as usual, they're late at providing us with the information we need.
Recently they thought they had been hacked, so they blocked our access to their servers, which we need to upload the annual reports! Oh, the lovely hierarchy in large companies.
But hey, they finally decided to drop IE6 support, so that's a win1
Hacking the parental control software parents which limited the access to 70 minutes a day.
The only thing I had to do was not clicking OK on the message box which was shown whenever I logged in. It was a model dialog which blocked everything else...1
Fuck corporate proxies. Fuck having to debug them, fuck figuring out how to use them with every piece of software you need, fuck failed builds due to some repository surprisingly being blocked for unknown reason and, most of all, fuck IT staff who deny there was a problem once it mysteriously disappears.1
I just love customers:
Customer: "ftps doesnt work! It says Port blocked you are using the wrong port! Fix this now!"
Me: "did you open the port and allow it through the firewall?"
C: " yeah ofc i opened the ports on the server! Do you think i'm stupid?"
M: "On the client too?"
C: " let me call back in 30min"
A week ago I raised an issue claiming I couldn't ping service x and that it was blocked
Today I figure out ping is blocked on firewall level and http requests work fine
Guess that's my big blunder this internship2
Got a ****ing blocked nose. ****ing irritating. ****. Sick dev is a bad dev. Zero productivity. Tons of things to finish before Saturday. ****.4
Work Computer antivirus marked FireFox as a remote code injection and blocked it. Okay then. Chrome it is?8
I installed an ad blocker, less than three months ago, on my phone.
Experience has been great, but then I decided to check how many hosts it has blocked.
More than 100,000 queries blocked. All ads.
Seriously, what the hell? Why so many ads on the internet?11
Shit! Facebook blocked me temporarily when I automated click on all the "love reaction button" on the live video!4
That moment you call a php curl script to download files handed to it from a python script because the http request in python somehow get blocked by corporate bullshit, but you also need access to MS products for this script to work, which you can't do in PHP.
# Corporate "Security" is bullshit
# Fail, Adapt, Overcome9
I guess I'll post my first rant, rant.
(Aka rant that wasn't a pun)
The Ipads our school use all have the same code, 0000. Even though about all the features are blocked... They never blocked the ability to change the pass code. No one would know who did it, and there would be 9999 possible choices for the new IPad. Who ever though it was a good idea to let highschoolers (12-18 year old) find this out.2
HEY Y'ALL! I need help.
So...... recently me and a friend are trying to move servers from a paid one to our own, named Vector. All of the web-side is basically done. However, port 25 is blocked by the ISP. After a few days of messing around in various Linux VMs, we gave up.
Point is, does anyone know where we could get a cheap VPS for email hosting?8
Wait spotify is blocked in my office but other guys spotify are not blocked? Oh well I'll just use the unblocked deezer. Thanks to my coworker.15
I might be able to release my first application tomorrow. At least the first version.
Nothing special, be amazed if it gets much attention.
You specify any running processes you wish to forcefully close, in my case, games.
So any time these games start running, it's force closed.
The app also monitors the active window, of it's and IDE, like Visual Studio, it will add credit towards allowing those blocked processes to run.
Currently you get 1 credit for every minute you code.
I plan to refine it some more. And yes I know there's ways around it but, it was fun to make10
Pride watch face blocked in Russia? I just downloaded the wallpaper and use it in the photo watch face lol9
How to know your network proxy sucks: when everything IDE-related (downloading new package, using Gradle…) is blocked, but almost everything prohibited (like streaming) isn't.
Using a brute force dictionary algorithm to retrieve every employees password. Access got blocked for a day because they didn't know what my algorithm did, I deleted the main file moments ago. They only saw the curl scripts.3
I just fucked myself big time with iptable rules and blocked all incoming connections to my WiFi-AP. No SSH, can't go back, time for a factory-reset...
We are gating release of each sprint.
Today before 10:00AM I identified a major performance problem and asked devs to fix it (single if() will be enough as a hotfix). We're blocked until we have the fix deployed.
It's 5pm and we're still waiting for that 1 `if` clause to be added and deployed :)
A long day it was. Full of hopes and expectations, waiting for things to happen
I just searched like half an hour for a book.. Then I started tabbing to Google but it wasn't working.. I was a bit shocked when I noticed this was real live.2
When your IT department needs to make a DNS entry for you and it's been blocking your sprint for 9 days.1
I fucking hate that ISPs just decide to block certain websites!
Sky for example blocks a bunch of things related to Tor. You can't go to the website, and can't even install stuff like tor browser from AUR, because it has tor in the download url. The connections simply time out.
Yes, I can use a VPN to install Tor, I'll probably have to do that. But fuck!!! Many VPN providers' websites are also blocked.
This seems to be common practive. In my previous flat we had Virgin. They blocked the website of all VPN providers they could find, and even kept me from establishing a connection to some of those providers. In that case I could donwload Tor (surprisingly) and then tried a bunch of clients until one of them worked.
It's fucking pretentious, and I don't think I'll find anything about blocking perfectly legal resources in any of their T&Cs.5
I hate that the company that I work for has every hugging page blocked. I can't even download or use pip. For hug sake, I don't even have a project to work on and you stop me from working on any side projects?
I hope I get a call from the places I've applied for.4
In our university lab several downloading sites are blocked and they have several restrictions but I tried to download with internet explorer and my mind was blown as I was able to download most of things.
P.S - I'm not proud to use IE.
You know when you get blocked from company's webmail, from their slack and everything they have... but they don't have the courage to tell you "you're fired"?
Well, now I do.
Almost a year working for someone, and they just locked me out - not even a "bye sucker!" or anything.5
Google apparently blocked users of small browsers like Konqueror, Qutebrowser or Falkon from loggining into their account, because of "security" concerns. Well played, Google! I hope you will be happy if a few users will switch to your data crawling machine.11
I have this classmate in college that names all his variables and classes like this: "seosX". I once spent an afternoon of my life helping him with this weird error he was getting running his program and the class name and file didn't have the same name...
I blocked him from all social media and my life. My IQ has doubled since.
The future is open source! Education to the masses! FOS till i die!
Yeah of course i have ads blocked, why do you ask?2
So basically people in school were playing krunker.io, and shellshock.io in class. The school took notice and decided to "futureproof" their blockage. They basically blocked all io domains, because io domains are definitely all games. So yes, that's the story of how atom.io and every other io domain is blocked at my school4
Could access every website but github.com “all of a sudden”...exp stopped working npm was broken...macs are so stupid then.....
I dumbed....it was all my fault. </duh>
Yesterday I blocked my kids’ access to the internet .. and just blocked the IP4 access of my mac. What a genius. It appears github (and not other sites) requires IP4 whereas most now use IP6.
Mozilla launched Firefox 72 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android which includes fingerprinting scripts blocked by default, less annoying notifications and Picture-in-Picture video on macOS and Linux. See the release notes for the details of these features and other changes.
I did reverse engineering on window command prompt hahaha
of course it was just for the commands:
which were the ones I needed because the admins in my school blocked cmd.4
This, my friends is the rate at which ads and trackers are being shoved into our faces. It's just been 7 fucking hours since I installed Blockada and this is what I have. 1000 fucking requests blocked.2
Went to PC Gamer's website. Got blocked by an anti-adblocker. Opened the DevTools to remove the fuck out of it. Found class names that may have been made by the drunkest vodka-fed polish dude the Earth ever carried.8
Had to use the pfsense's url in my Default Gateway which is 188.8.131.52 from our school.
#anime tags -blocked

Unfortunately the Network Admin found my IP and slowed down my download speed. I can search R-18 links but I don't want to be caught in his SquidProxy log. so I'm still lucky to browse my animu website.3
An european customer turned me down yesterday because I don't have a fucking paypal account and I'm too embarrassed to explain him WHY MY GOV BLOCKED PAYPAL 2 YEARS AGO.
He didn't wanna do wire transfer, god knows why. Now I don't know how I'm going to pay the bills next month.6
Its fucked how you can put spf and dkim in place and your legitimate emails are still blocked but yet you can receive viagra emails daily5
Any email I receive mentioning SharePoint is unsubscribe to and blocked. I should really setup a rule to do this for me automagically.2
When you have assigned stories that are blocked by other dependencies being developed in the same Sprint... Oh boy, someone is not going to finish on time u.u
Today, IT director blocked off a part of Friday afternoon on everyone's calendar as "focus time." WTF.6
North Korea has blocked Internet access to Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube such a shame to the 3 people who have Internet access there
I really, really need some help here.
We have a service provider that is utter shit. Due to their shittyness we have a server to which our customers point their domains and then we forward the request to our shitty provider. This worked well until our provider blocked our server's IP.
They can't come up with a reasonable explanation as to why it's happening, and even though they've whitelisted our IP it keeps happening. I've tried changing the server's IP, but it takes 5 minutes and we're blocked again. Probably some traffic that they deem fishy.
Does anyone have any good or bad idea on how to work around this fuckery? The server at our provider is running PHP, so I'm thinking if I can set up some sketchy tunnel or something, but even then it might be caught on a lower level.
I'm really, really grateful for any ideas or advice. Even of the shitty kind.6
Did you know that docker's ADD instruction uses "go-http-client/1.1" as user-agent when src is an URL?
I didn't. And since I'm unfortunate, enough so that this user-agent is blocked by my company, I've now spent twice the time it took me to write the whole dockerfile to identify the problem and fix it...
I love waisting my time for such minor things...12
Welp, who wants to see my first website? tiny.cc/copo
It was made almost entirely during english class, for blocked games. It's the most hits I've ever got one a site I've made. But the best part? I achieved my goal: respect from the teachers. And why did they respect me? *Because it got blocked*. Yup, across the entire county (our county is one of the top five in the USA for schools I believe). We, as the students, found a way around the teacher's technological control, and finally got some technological freedom. Just a small story.
P.S. not named by me, and sorry bout that JS redirect. I redesigned it while I was supposed to be writing about the theme but the original is couchpotato not cppremium. I can't change it now but I'll change it later. I trust you guys know how to stop it without me changing it though :)8
Microsoft: devs software blocking configurable by parents in Microsoft families.
Me: since I know this has to be coded in explorer.exe while it is running the desktop, LET'S JUST CLOSE THE DESKTOP AND OPEN A SOFTWARE THAT HAS BEEN BLOCKED BY MY DAD!5
I think I need VPN now.... some sites are getting blocked/NSA is watching.... 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥
Will this do? What next?20
So a client came today to me saying his domain that I setup some time ago isn't working on a specific russian internet provider, checked everything and then came across a blogpost stating cloudflare IPs are blocked. Researched further and it came out that those fucking retards from the "Federal Tax Service of the Russian" blocked a ton of cloudflare IPs because russian online casinos used them like a year ago.
Then checked another domain he had a problem with and the godaddy IPs were also banned - even more extreme they were banned for like 14 incidents, what the fuck, had to create a new account to get a new ip/nameservers assigned from cloudflare, jesus fucking christ.1
Is anyone else having troubles loading github ?
I opened the console and saw their css was being blocked by CORS :D3
I am trying to install eclipse for college
Windows defender blocked it because it found malware virus in it
Disabled windows defender

Disable kaspersky too
Waste my time squared download eclipse again
Import tomcat v8
I love it when your team lead complains that you aren't getting through your tickets fast enough, but then you are blocked because his super fragile integration tests are on the fritz and the build is broken for days. Sure I could fly through my tickets if I didn't have to fix everyone else's shiz along the way!2
Just upgraded to Win 10. Windows update keeps sucking my bandwidth. Stopped windows update and BITS, set to manual, yet keeps popping up. Finally blocked windows update's IP via Firewall. Now oddly satisfied..1
Update to previous rant: My e-banking account is blocked, because apparently I already set a password on a website I never seen before.
- Tried the declined one
- Tried the unsecure one I chossed after the declined one
- Tried the pin number from mobile app.
BAM@#%$#%!!1!one1! YOU ARE BLOCKED FOR ENTERING WRONG PASSWORD TOO MANY TIMES. PLEASE CALL THE FUCKING BANK ON MONDAY.
I seriously hate this stupid country, and companies that don't know a first thing about web getting picked on government and public sector projects, sucking 100s of thousands of euros and providing the user experience that gives you a fucking diarrhea, at every SINGLE ONE OUF THEM!1
When you accidentally send a screenshot of a chat to the person him/herself. Lot of shitload to get out off .. FYI I blocked the person. Would have to deal with it 1.5 months later when I actually meet her after vacations. I need luck :(
This is deeply disturbing. Is it the beginning of the end for Net Neutrality? http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/...7
My beard has grown during the time i've been waiting for Emscripten SDK to get installed
In Syria, my connection speed is 512kbps and Google repositories is blocked, so i had to run OpenVPN using a VPNBook account located in Poland to get everything working, and i guess you all know how connection speed is screwed when you use a VPN, i hardly got 300kbps
The bright side is having to do ZERO configurations on Linux before installation4
Repeater + Android 4.2.2 + Android web server
I have a stupid problem.. Mas that is the opposite of everyone else (so no Google can help me)
I want my android phone (my personal server) to connect directly to the router, and never to the repeater (the port 80 is blocked this way)
How can I do this magic?
er guys... I don’t think i can code anymore.
I was unable to do anything for like 2 weeks while i was away and it’s been a month since i got back and like... I’m blanking out big time. I sit and stare at my computer and everything but there is like 0 motivation/interest. I’m fairly new to it tbh so i thought this is was a good time to try new languages but still no.
Any ideas or advice please? It’s like come weird ass code block.3
So I developed this proxy server that will throttle down API calls to one of our providers so we don't get blocked for TOS violation...
Some dude had a tool running all day long which crashed 2 minutes before I left work.
This literally ruined my day until I recalled it's all cached!!!!
Mood is back again and I deserve my beer!
I just spent hours making my own email-receipt sending system. My ip got blocked because of a misconfigured server. I had to reconfigure it and when it's finally working I realise that Stripe already have a built in feature for this.
I'm crying in a corner, slowly dying inside.
Fucking superb management. Assign all my tasks that aren't blocked to other people. Give me nothing to replace them. I'll just sit and twiddle my fucking thumbs, shall I?6
FFS! Some of my friends convinced me to get Instagram half a year ago despite me absolutly hating it. And now I apparently have a stalking problem at my hand cause of it.
Not that some of my friends would stalk me but some brain damaged dude I had the unfortunate pleasure to meet four years ago. Had blocked him back then but he somehow found my account despite no personal info on it.12
I think I am too stupid to get fail2ban working...
It's installed, configured, it reads from the logs, testcases work, regex works, manual banning works, BUT IT DOES NOT BAN AUTOMATICALLY!
WHY THE FUCK
I litterally tried every tutorial to set it up on the first 3 Pages of ddg.
Well now I blocked those two aggressive ips just with iptables...3
fucking web hosts blocking all SMTP ports outgoing, forcing me to use PHP mail from their shitty blacklisted IP's.
Since I can't use a web api to send the mail Iended up setting up my home server to forward port 53 back out to the mail server, alot of hassle to get mail working :(14
My company has an default user for external people and two wifi networks, on for the company itself and on for the employees. both wifis have an shit of an firewall(more than once were wikipedia blocked). I found out that the internal wifi allowed the default user and had some outgoing ports open, i set up an vpn and now i can use what i want without being blocked.
Is the Android Build process getting slower with every update or is it just me who is experiencing that...
In the newest Android Studio Beta it went from 3m to 7m 🤦♂️
And my whole computer is blocked and not usable while compiling7
Daily life on this project: tickets are blocked by test env. Fucking impressive server ops team we have here, took a month to add 1 test user.
Coworker: I SSH into my liver every now and again. It's mostly to make sure it's kept up and running because I've blocked all the other ports to it. Once my kidneys can' handle the alcohol and energy drinks I'll start enabling cookies on it to help filter out that traffic.
Weird conversations with my coworker
Mine are just super obvious, stupid things like: having your content blocked by adblock and freaking out since you cant see it. Pushing to the wrong server and not realizing why your pages arent showing up.
I'm feeling burnt due to the lack of direction at my job instead of overwork.
I'm working as a data scientist at a large corporation and have been remote for a little over a year. I'm very savvy at programming and other technical skills but my manager wants me to develop my leadership skills and want me to move to a management role eventually. So he's been kinda "grooming" me to take on more leadership responsibility in the projects I'm currently involved in.
However, to be honest, I'm a little torn about getting more management or leadership responsibilities. I'm an extreme introvert and absolutely abhor meetings and having the same thing to people all the time and this sort of things stresses me out very easily. My manager seems set on pushing me towards pursuing a path towards leadership and just basically assumed that this is what I want out of my career and started putting me in the deep end without asking me what I want.
I really want to voice my honest thoughts about what I really want to do in my career (to be a technical specialist rather than a manager) but I've kinda procrastinated over the past year when he first started "grooming" me for a leadership role and it's my bad that I didn't tell him earlier.
Right now, I'm thrown in the deep end. I'm given a lot of projects without much of any direction and I'm asked to figure out the people I need to reach out to, the types of meetings I need to set with them, the relationships I need to develop both in and out of my department, etc. However, my real passions lie in writing code, fixing bugs, building models, understanding new technologies and applying them to the business, etc.
On paper, I'm involved in a ton of projects and I seem to be a really busy worker. But right now, I'm having a lot of difficulty reaching out and developing relationships with people that I barely have any actual work to do during the day, because I'm constantly waiting for replies from people or for permission or red tape to get some key information or access to a system in order for me to build something like a model or a program for a particular project. I'm spending maybe 1 or 2 hours of my workday actually "working" which is attending meetings, reading emails, etc., reaching out to someone for the n-th time (even though they continue to ignore me), etc. And that's because I'm blocked on all of my projects - I need an essential piece of information, data, or access to a system or server and the person I'm reaching out to to get this isn't responding. I brought this up with my manager and he says he's gonna try to reach out to these people to help me but so far, it doesn't seem like his help has been effective as I'm continuing to wait.
Though I get paid pretty well, I feel guilty logging in to work everyday and doing very little work, not because I'm lazy but because there really isn't much work for me to do because I'm waiting on so much here and I'm at a point where I can't make any progress in any of my projects without the approvals or other critical information that others aren't providing me.
I know I probably should find another job and I'm currently looking but in the meantime, is there anything else that I should be doing at my current job to hopefully make this situation better?
So, our company has blocked WhatsApp web interface. I asked why, but they didn't answer anything. Apparently there is no business reason why anyone should have a quick way to communicate with outside world.
I receive every day multiple messages from the kids, soccer team, wife etc. and now I have to unlock the phone, open the app and then spend time trying to get the spelling right with the tiny phone keyboard.17
Follow up to my previous rant ( https://devrant.com/rants/1680373/... )
I've contacted digital ocean support and asked them about that blocked port. They said that they didn't block it and that I must've messed up with configuration. The thing is, when I set postfix to port 2525 it works perfectly fine and I can connect no problem. Will see how they respond to that...4
Co worker asks, why he can't send e-mails to a particular address. others cant't either
Turns out that the other company has blocked us.
*We are no spam senders, it was an issue they had with our company before*
Wrote a script for mail merge with app script works flawless on my account, then that shit gives message blocked error with the clients account.
I think this is what they say a devlife1
Spent 4 FUCKING HOURS to solve a connection issue on my Ubuntu Server only to get a call after said time from the server provider that they installed an firewall and blocked my fucking port. WHY ????2
Motherfucker Udacity blocked my contents that I bought, due to some completion of term, which are ment to be accessed lifetime and saying to pay the fee again to avail them. Any suggestions what should I do?? I need those contents badly. Their fucking support executives are not even responding.3

Some friend bothers me while I'm coding.
Friend walks away because I asked him to look at what someone on the other side of the room is doing.
I open CMD on his pc.
typed: color 0a
alt + enter
me: blocked by administrator for disturbing the peace.9
New authentication system for a new type of login, I try to log in
Error everytime I try.
So I wait a little, like 10 min (the server is quite picky, thought it was it).
And then I try with another co-worker.
This headhunter even took the time to bold out the hipster verbs like: blockchain, microservices, angular, react and vue keywords and hashtags ...
K thx bye

so i did this convenient download script that worked like a charm at home only to find out internet is blocked for these kind of things at work. adding a port results in a single connection success that will be blocked on the next attempt. i get it with all the security concerns but am curious which way it-department tells me to download 3k+ files with likely dynamic filenames otherwise...2
Haven't been reading Dilbert for other a month but finally got around to it today. I read it through an app I made that downloads all the comics from the site.
Well apparently the downloader downloaded too much/too fast. It seems my IP is now blocked....
Wonder if it's temporary. O well... I got VPNs...
Latest version of the iTunes Connect app doesn't let the user type in their password. Text fields are blocked for some reason.
Wonder if my app would be approved of it had such a ~secondary~ issue.
Fuck's sake, why is setting up ipv6 for an LXC container so hard?
For whatever reason the assigned ipv6 address to the lxcbr0 interface (on the host) doesn't stick, and any v6 outgoing traffic from the container is blocked.
Can't find any decent documentation either :(1
There was a holiday in my area but someone reported that Google map is showing that roads are blocked instead of no traffic.
Ah! they forgot to improve their algorithms to analyze the traffic by getting user's location "without permission" against festivals in India.
The problem with working for a school is depending on the district and there policy the sites you need are blocked. The district I'm at today blocks devRant and I'm posting this using mobile data.
LIKE WTF I FUCKING WORK HERE YOU ASSHATS LET ME FUCKING ACCESS THE SITES I NEED/WANT TO VISIT. I WORK FOR THE FUCKING DEPARTMENT THAT KEEPS ALL YOUR SHIT WORKING!2
No I won't do this months update(s) as I'd heard so much bad shit about them.
Good thing I have turned off my updates..
I'll just go and hibernate my PC as I'm not going to be using it for a few hours..
You bastard !
-Update and shutdown
-Update and restart
FX [ Checks updates are blocked... ]
Says they are blocked, but obviously not !
Damn it !
I may be some time . . .
When you realize you are blocked ........
A simulation I am working on stopped working due to some linking errors again. I looked it up online and followed some suggestions. Deleting the project from work space and reimporting it. I also created a new workspace and compared binary files with another similar class. The makefile seems to be detecting it. It just doesn’t agree with he file syntax although it’s correct. Oh no ....
Me: “You gotta be kidding! I just want to code .....!”1
I hate having to ask for work when I'm out or blocked, it's a dynamic I'm not at all comfortable with yet it seems to be a weekly requirement.3
I've been trying to setup a mail server on my vps. Postfix is setup fine, I can send and receive mail with SSH, but I couldn't connect any mail client to the server. After a couple reinstalls, following a million tutorials, I finally found the reason.
The fucking reason was that fucking digital ocean FUCKING BLOCKS THE FUCKING PORT 25 BECAUSE FUCKING SPAMMERS ABUSED IT.
Switched postfix to use port 2525 instead and everything works as it should.
Fucking digital ocean, I swear I wouldn't use it if I didn't get free 50 dollars from github student pack.
On a side note, can anyone recommend a cheap vps provider that doesn't block ports?1
I know it's not really code but, I'm so pissed my school now the blocked the registry editor, makes changing the unchanable wallpaper harder2
It's been 5 days since I'm blocked on a field validation with a framework that I don't understand. I might kill somebody on my way home.4
!rant; question = true;
Switched to non-google for every device I own, however:
When I accidently go to Google and try to search, it tells me that I am blocked for suspicious activity and need to solve a captcha - If I do, the current search works.. Shortly after tho, it gives me the same thing again.
Any idea how to get more detailed info about the issue, e.g. Ensure none of my systems is quietly participating in a botnet?
PS: why should I care? Just don't use Google! That's right, yes, it still bugs me tho8
When I got all pre installed PC games blocked in my lab at school because my teacher caught me playing instead of coding(I finished my program well ahead of class. The teacher still hates me, by the way).
To make it up to my now annoyed fellow classmates, I coded 3 games, and also when the teacher left the lab for something, I hacked her system to unblock the games.
That's when I knew I'd be good at developing!2
Im facing an issue with my schools network.they block almost all ports. Ssh isnt open and a lot of websites are blocked. Cant use a vpn to surpass that sadly. Tho a vpn with sstp support works. Can someone reccomend a vpn that allows sstp or can i somehow make mullvad use sstp?4
I just got a new laptop and wanted to dual boot Linux on it.
Everything seemed fine until I realized the laptop had UEFI. I always used easyBCD but this won't work sadly. MS blocked some features.
What boot loader do you guys use for dual booting Linux that works with UEFI?
Thanks in advance!15
So I miss my job to go to the local traffic department to check my driver license and their system is out. (boss will fuck me)
Then I see they have 5 brand new Windows powered HP machines you can use to check your processes and stuff. The Internet is blocked, but strangely no one bothered that user has administrative rights.
Cmd and Explorer in the screen are in admin mode2
I made mistake to use nano editor instead vim ... And I'm blocked in a week ago... How to go out?
#vim #blocked #jailnano1
anyways my ex told me if i want to try our relationship out again for the second time, i can always text him. but after he said that he blocked me on everything. i was thinking about texting him because i do miss him. he didn’t block me on instagram though.5
I really hate it when you are reading DevRant on a public wifi network, and the network decides to drop the "more rants" packet, that you are blocked from loading more rants. Why do most applications stop loading more pages after a single request times out, it's really annoying2
Jira on Android 🙄
I had an overview of the backlog, blocked, active issues, could see who works on what and so on ...
Accidentally pressed the back button, returned to the project. Now it's a single big list with only issue type, description and deadline. It's pretty much a guessing game, which feature is open. Their seems to be no way to change that, not even deleting any data.
How did this happen?? Let me change it back!6
Flipping SMPlayer - I opened a video on other monitor (TV) and was trying to lower default volume (by keys) to not wake up family. But the SMPlayer decided to show some window about donations which blocked all hotkeys for a player. Good job, now that I probably woke my family I am sure I won't donate you.
Got an emergency update to my iOS app blocked because the iPad screenshot wasn't pretty enough. While I admit the iPad screenshot was crap, it has been there for over 7 months with many updates not being held back until this update
Fuck you sophos. Fuck you hard. I moved a server to a new datacenter and it worked like a charm. Thank you windows and hyper-v. BUT! BUUUUUUT my fucking sophos worked like shit. Blocking everything by default? Yeah fuck you. Reconfigured everything. Still blocked and why? Forward “all“ doesnt mean forward all. Had to apply rules from port tcp 1 - 65335 and udp 1-65335. Nice you piece of fuck.2
Fuck. I blocked my bestfriend already, why are you still talking to your friends about me? Hori shet please leave me alone asshole cuz i'm starting to hate you for fucking sake.
