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
Boss: Give me unrestricted access in the system.
Me: It's dangerous. You might break something.
Boss: I'll be careful.
Me: *gives access*
This happened 2 years ago. Now every week he deletes something he shouldn't and break a module for him or for the clients using our system.
Just woke up in a rant email saying that "oUr OnLiNe StOrE DoEs NoT wOrK". Well, that's because you have delete the Cart configuration for all the clients you dumbass. What the fuck were you thinking when you deleted that?17
So I put a very strict eslint configuration to a 6 month old project
924 errors in 27 files
I removed eslint from the project8
There used to be a CLI utility for ordering dominoes pizza online, and I wrote a patch for it to have a .pizzarc and read entropy from standard in and randomize not only the size and contents of your pizza but how many of them you wanted to order in case you couldn’t make up your mind.
So you could do “dd if=/dev/urandom bs=1M count=1 | pizza -“ and it would look for your address in the configuration file and pizzas would show up but you never knew how many. This was more than ten years ago and I have since lost it.8
A colleague was doing configuration on a server and needed to restart the network card.
So he clicked disable it, just to notice that his remote session died ...
Now where can we get a cab?8
No work is going to be tolerable if you don't enjoy it. If you got into programming or IT or any industry simply for the money you can earn doing it, you're in for a BAD TIME.
I love computers, linux, programming, configuration, automation, and problem solving. So I love what I do. I am currently three weeks into 13 weeks of parental leave, and I have been having dreams about work at night.
The best piece of advice I can offer to someone who has trouble getting motivated is: make sure to like it first.11
Just figured out that a server configuration I made about 3 months ago resulted in one of our main sites being offline.
No one fucking noticed it.
For 3 fucking months.
It displays a -1 whenever it is not working. There is no basement.
Reminds me of some configuration files.7
Craziest deadline I've ever had...
Task: Patch 193 machines
- no configuration/patch management
- no knowledge of the machines
- no contact info/application owners
...timeframe...do it today!
Here's the winner...do we have credentials for these machines? Ha, nope.6
Me a while ago talking to a recruiter over the phone. This was for a C++ dev position.
(R)ecruiter : So except for the development things, we are looking for someone who has experience configuration linux. Do you have any experience with that?
(M)e : Sure, I use Linux all the time. What do you mean.
R : Well, Just using Linux isn't enough for this position, you need to have experience in configuration Linux.
M : Well. I can't answer your question if you don't specify what you mean. Do you mean that I need to be able to install my own packages? Set up my dev environment? Bash scripting? Being able to configure my bash profile to have good aliases? Use Linux to develop software? Because I can do all of these.
M : Or do you need someone who can write Kernel modules for the OS, because I don't have any experience in that but would like to learn.
R : Oh, I don't really know what it means. But the paper says that you need to have experience configuration Linux. So what would you say your experience with that is?
Me internally : JESUS CHRIST I JUST TOLD YOU WHAT I KNOW AND WHAT I DON'T KNOW HOW ARE YOU GOING TO ASSESS ME CORRECTLY.
Me 😎 : I use Arch and you have to set it up completely from the ground by your self so I know everything there is to know.
Basically every question was like this with the recruiter. I got further in the process but quit because the workplace looked like it would drain my soul when I got interviewed by the employees of the company.
Jesus Christ though, some recruiters could be replaced by an automated phone system.17
A. Please put your fucking functions in files with names related to the purpose of the functions.
B. Don't define your database management methods in your goddamn configuration file.
C. In addition, fucking document your shit at the top of the file if you refuse to abide by request A.
Someone is going to maintain or modify this code after you, and that person will have a hell of a time with it.3
Many years ago at school the machines were imaged using Norton Ghost. A floppy disk containing Norton Ghost and it's configuration would be put into the machine, which would automatically start the imaging process.
When these floppy disks inevitably started erroring they'd be tossed into the rubbish bin. I grabbed one of these broken disks, inserted it a few times until my machine would recognise it, and hey presto, the config file along with the domain admin password were now visible.1
While setting up a very complex development environment I asked my colleges, why are certain configuration steps needed. They replied only "Just do it!". I see, that they may be Nike fans or deeply inspired by the Shia LaBeouf motivation speech, but I still feel like:2
I don't understand... How can people prefer complicated web pages with fancy design over the simple and effective design of your router configuration page?
I mean, look at it... It's beautiful. If I ever asked as a client to a developer to build me a website, it'd look just like this.14
*Creates empty node web project in visual studio*
Let's have a look at the default configuration... Oh look the default port is 1337... Microsoft... Please stop trying to meme... Please1
- Works on my system, therefore it's not an issue.
- Must be a hardware error.
- Obviously it's just cheap hardware.
- Have you tried turning it off and on again?
- Here's some obscure error code that leads nowhere.
- Have you tried "sfc /scannow"?
AS IF SFC IS A FUCKING SILVER BULLET!!!
- Our Indian support chap from answers.microsoft.com will help you.
Solution: quietly weep and reinstall your system.
- There are good quality log files.
- You can run the program from the command-line and read both stdout and stderr from it.
- You can usually run the program with high verbosity options to help you track down the error.
- Even daemons can have their commands spawned from a dedicated shell, to see why they failed.
- Usually it's a configuration error and you can easily edit the configuration file.
- More often than not, the program will tell you why it failed.
Solution: usually easy to find.
I fucking love Windows. Because you know, it's so easy to troubleshoot and the support is so great!!!2
Me: Hey boss, if you ever need someone to get into doing DevOps related tasks for the team, I'd be more than happy to take that on.
Boss: We don't really need any dedicated person to work on that, but if we do in the future, I'll let you know.
Fast forward a few days: I am now unable to deploy bug fixes to our testing environment, now in the cloud, because all access has been blocked for everyone except the two numbskulls who thought it'd be a great idea to move EVERYTHING over (apps, configuration manager, proxies, etc) first.
Oh, and this bug is affecting production.3
Let's install some Addons! Hmm where is that menu item... oh could it be called Extensions? No? Wait... maybe Plugins then?
Maybe it's inside of a Settings window. Oh there's nothing called settings in this endless menu I think. Or is it called Preferences? Options? Properties? Configuration? Ugh and should I look in the File or Edit or Extra menu in this App, Application and/or Program?
Maybe I can Search for it?
OH YOU FUCKING NAMED THAT FIND INSTEAD OF SEARCH, YOU PRESUMPTUOUS PRICK, I CAN'T FUCKING FIND ANYTHING IN YOUR BLOATED GOO OF A GUI.
*scrambles back into his bash-shell like a hermit crab, making soft defensive noises*9
Them : "Here is an example of how to use my library, 45 lines of mandatory configuration omitted"
Me : "Here is a pot of boilling oil, could you take a small bath in it?"2
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

So a few of you devranters were asking if my devrant-widget project was open source.
Well I finally felt confident enough to share my devrant-widget project on github so a link is now available :) I'm pretty new to the open source community so go easy on me xD but I think this project could do some good.
Its just a simple widget I wrote in php this past week that pulls your profile data and the widget can be customized a little via json configuration.
Anyways, feel free to use it in your projects, make suggestions or contribute to the project if interested.

My girlfriend configuring her e-mail account in the app because her phone had to be reset to factory :
-I can't figure out how to do these setting, annoying...
-Oh yeah the imap and smtp servers can be tricky, let me put that
(I Google the settings for her mail provider and put them in)
-It still doesn't work.
-Uuuh, maybe with another security setting, try it.
-This shit still doesn't work, seriously my phone is broken.
-Have you verified the e-mail address and carefully typed the password?
-Yes of course, I've tried it several time
(I take the phone and check all the parameters... During a looooong time... Until it hits me.)
-Hmm... Can you read the e-mail you've entered?
-Yeah, it's my mail, email@example.com.
-No can you read it again please?
-It's blabla, why?
-No, can you *spell* your e-mail?
-Yeah it's B-L-A-B-L-A-@-H-O-M-A... Ow shit...
Many years ago I brought a new server with latest SLES linux installed to a customer. Back then you needed to write your own X11 configuration. So while writing it for the customer's monitor, one of the PhDs approached me saying "Oh my god! We're in the 21 century, and you just brought in a computer that opens a terminal prompt?! - We used to work like this 20 years ago. Why don't you take it back and bring us something modern to work with?"2
My first times today:
First time a droplet on Digital Ocean.
First time Nginx.
First time trying to separate mail and website servers.
First time using UFW firewall.
First time Ubuntu webserver.
First try all alone configuration of my webserver.
First time installing all the stuff I need on my own, like MySQL, PHP and so on.
First time only SSH access from the beginning.
First time deployment from bitbucket.
Do you have any advise what I should think about. Or what software I will need. Or what I should think about.45
Omg so I've been stuck on this function I'm writing that checks if a certain array value is so many characters long and well, it just wasnt returning false when outside the conditions..
I tried taking it step by step, echoing out every line and it all made sense to me and there were no syntax errors.
Time goes by and inside the configuration file I was testing.. I was changing the value of a DIFFERENT array property than what I was using in my condition. They looked really similar.. fml xD2
Allright, this one begs for a rant.
Me (Linux boi):
0 checkout code
1 update local config file
3 deploy locally
Coleague (Windows boi):
0 checkout code
1 update local config file
3 deploy locally
-1 "configuration xyz not found in config file"
→ goto #3
After 4 attempts:
3 deploy locally
-1 "configuration xyz not found in config file"
3 deploy locally
// out of curiosity...
3 deploy locally
-1 "configuration xyz not found in config file"
NO side actions taken (no configs updated, no code changes made, no nothing. Just simple double-clicking the redeploy script again and again)
Now... How do you objectively explain THAT?

The project tech lead asks me to add some Docker configuration files sent by the client to a project. He gives me a zip file and I unzip it and add the files to Git. Job done.
Later he checks the commit and starts bitching because I unzipped the file and it should have been added as a zip. After much debate trying to explain to him that Docker wouldn't open the zip file to search for the Dockerfile he just says "Can you just do it? I double checked with the client!". I give up after giving him all the arguments why he is wrong and do it.
The next day the client checks the commit and comments bitching that I included the zip file and not the contents of it.4
When a library has all the documentation you'll ever need with all the configuration options but doesn't contain one fucking example on how to put it all together...4
"let's quickly compile php by hand and get php-fpm running!"
All is compiled well but I can't, for the love of what-the-fuck-ever figure out how to load extensions within the configuration and the internet isn't helping out much either.
How fucking difficult can this be?!17
Why I don’t use ides:
They are hundreds of millions of lines of code that at the end of the day are accomplishing a task that is so mind numbingly simple, and they make it impossibly difficult.
Just today, I’m trying to get a debug configuration working in eclipse for a coworker and we follow the instructions and it doesn’t work
Because of course it doesn’t
Probably wrong version of eclipse or wrong version of java or some other stupid bullshit.
And this is just basic bullshit like scp it onto the fucking board and run it. Why is this so fucking complicated
IDES ARE A WASTE OF FUCKING TIME AND MEMORY.21

If I do it in python : Finish in one day!
If I do it in C++ :
1 week for installation and configuration
3 days for coding
Another 1 day for troubleshooting...
But I will still prefer do it in C++.5
I agree with the "no code on paper" movement. I also would seek to have more talks on open source projects and configuration development environment for the students to be more successful.2
And this is how to read a book in Visual Studio at work so everyone thinks you are in some really fucked up configuration xml.... :))))))) Thanks xmlrant.com and jsrant.com for ideas1
When I saw an O(1) algorithm solution. I was so amazed that I got goosebump. Still wondering how one is able to come up with such algorithm.
Another times when I understand how the whole thing works in a project. This class is doing this, that class is doing that, this file contains the configuration, etc. Its like everything is connected.
Other times when you see your pet project start to take shape. You just want to cuddle it.12
Thank you Microsoft. Your latest Windows 10 updates completely junked my keyboard configuration, forcing me to login and reconfigure using a mouse and the on screen keyboard.6
So this just happened. I was working on a project and I just found a weird directory named '~' in there. I am on Linux so I simply did an "rm -rf ~" :/
It was too late when I realized it deleted all my files in my home directory. All my projects and configuration files. The sad part was it did not delete that shitty random directory because permission denied. Thank God I got into the habit of making weekly backups of my system and Thank God I use git.5
Dear people who create frameworks and libraries,
Please don't advertise your stuff as 'super easy to use', 'incredibly lightweight', 'no configuration needed', 'seamless integration' and shit like this. We all know it's a big fat fucking lie. Just be honest and write 'it supposed to be all-purpose but won't solve your problem', 'a huge fucking chaotic mess', 'slow as shit', 'will eat up all your resources', 'might be good but we've lost the documentation' or 'actually worse than vanilla'. If you'd do this, the world would be a better place.

Trying to fix a bug for 2 days that came out of nowhere. Taking my hairs off because it was working all fine the day before.
Later realized that I was using the wrong configuration file :(
The last software I worked on in my previous company (a few months back), was a temporary replacement because they were switching techs. It was meant to be replaced within 2 years.
So, before I left, I added a kill. 2 years and 2 months into the future. First it spams the devs with emails "how is the tech upgrade going?" with no further clues. 6 months later it will start throwing random exceptions at random intervals. 6 months after that it just terminates the application immediately upon startup. Snuck it in between large commits, and since they stopped code reviews when I left, doubt they found it.
There is a setting in configuration with an obscure name to disable it all.
I marked the dates in my calendar. Would love to be a fly on the wall then.3
I've finally gotten everything on my Debian workstation configured they way I like it. Openbox + xfdesktop, tint2, compton & conky. The windows open in the screenshot are emacs, Tilix and ranger (URxvt).3
I have to write an xml configuration parser for an in-house data acquisition system that I've been tasked with developing.
I hate doing string parsing in C++... Blegh!18
So I ended up installing Arch Linux as the primary OS in my laptop, and to be honest, I'm not very crazy about it. Because I'm someone who likes an elegant UX, I spent three days and over 50 reboots and 5 reinstalls just trying to get Plymouth to work correctly (in the end, I just said screw it and gave up.) I know, I probably messed something up in the installation or configuration, but I didn't really want to deal with it anymore.
I'm not a big fan of the pacman package manager; I prefer apt. There were several applications I couldn't get to work properly, such as Steam, the Tor Browser, and Wine. All in all, I've basically wasted a week trying to get Arch Linux to work as the daily driver on my laptop, but I guess it's just not the distro for me.
I'm going to give Arch one last shot with the Manjaro distro. I'm hoping that Manjaro's simplified installation and configuration will produce a more usable (in my case) OS, and if not, I'll probably be going back to something Debian-based.
I'm not at all saying Arch is a bad distro. I know many people use it as their daily driver, and I have absolutely no problem with that. I'm not writing this to debate which distro is better, I'm just writing about my experience with it. Arch just may not be the distro for someone like me. At least I gave it a shot, right?16
That moment when you go to YouTube for a configuration or code tutorial and have to wait for 5 seconds to view a WIX.com ad... FML5
Ok i post it a bit late but what the hell.
This is my monster now! I now shall conquer the world!
MSI GL62 7RD

HDD: WB blue (small laptop one) 1TB
Ok i already had that configuration for a while... but it was sloooowwwww D:
That is why for my birthday/chrismas i bought myself additional 8GB of ram and a tiny nvme ssd to make everything 1000x faster! 😎
1 ++ for a person who reads how big the ssd is...14
Don't fucking make changes to the server configuration and assume that it's going to be functional.
Stop fucking breaking shit on client servers then leaving it for the rest of us to clean up.
Verify your goddamn work before you tell them that their issue is resolved.7
My mom woke me up at 6am because the tv sound was not working..
I tried almost everything, use the tv control, mute button, menu tv configuration..
even checked different inputs using my Nintendo switch and super Nintendo's and it didn't work..
Couldnt do shit.. so I had to use the old reliable!
turned off the tv and then turned on ..
It was like magic! fuck everything!3
Aaaah. I ask one fucking question on askubuntu. One dude marks it as duplicate, I explain in multiple comments it has no relation. Still fucking creates an answer with some solution with clearly doesn't work. If he had EYES he could see my configuration is already there and with his one brain cell conclude that it has nothing to do with it for fuck sake.10
After 9 weeks of waiting for my much delayed dell xps 15 i opened the box and it's fucking azerty ... While i clearly, CLEARY requested qwerty. I mentioned it 4 fucking times for the love of god make sure the keyboard is fucking QWERTY .. THEY GAVE ME AZERTY .. on top of that shittrain they also forgot to include my integrated fingerprint reader which i paid extra for.. man what a fucking shit company .. they might make half decent hardware but they piss all costumers of with their insanely bad braindead costumer service and sales team.
9 weeks of waiting , receiving the wrong configuration, probably again 5 more weeks of waiting.. man im starting to hate this shit company.7
Me: After 3 days of deliberation, I finally picked a framework, I can jump into the rewrite
*2 hours of inspired coding later
I finished the configuration validation and logging setup! What was that framework again?1
Quick backstory. I've negotiated with our customers to drop IE11 support (happiest day of my life) and decided to also refactor and update our webpack configuration. I asked a bunch of questions about a few exclusions we had for JS processing and received a reply of: I don't know if we need these anymore. Queue a snippet of my response in a meme format on how I wish to proceed with the change done by our tech lead.
So at the old job, i needed support for an issue relating to Amazon S3. We used a third party Python plugin for sending files to our buckets, but had some pretty severe performance issues when trying a 2-way sync.
Naturally, I sought help on StackOverflow, and was asked to share my config. Without much thought, I pasted the config file.
Next comment made me aware that our API id and key was listed in this config (pretty rediculous to keep such private info in the same file as configuration, but oh well).
I edited my question and removed the keys, and did not think about the fact that revisions are stored.
Two weeks later, my boss asks me if I know why the Amazon bill is for 25.000$ when it used to be <100$ 😳
I've never been so scared in my life. Luckily, Amazon was nice enough to waive the entire fee, and I leaned a little about protecting vital information4
I just wrote a function that creates a configuration struct that is stored in a Singleton struct, but to create it I called the Singleton to get a connection to the database.
This created an infinite recursive function that maximized connections on the database, as the Singleton never got fully initialized. Not a good idea.
So to fix this I created the configuration after the creation of the Singleton, still calling the singleton from within the function. This worked.
Then I remembered that I could have just passed the connection as a parameter to the function. Like I've done a million times before...
It's time for the weekend, I need a break
Just fucked up two times in one week.
I was supposed to send alpha version of our app and also server configuration. I ended up sending configuration for completelly different server.
In second delivery i included correct configuration but forgot to include some jars ...1
Built a C#/.NET application with support for a serial device. Tested it on systems A, B, C initially, all Windows system, same .NET version, same targeting, same build tool version, same initial connection configuration etc, etc.
Testing - works on A and C, B nopes.
OK, let's check the source, is there something about B that makes it impossible to execute that bit? - No, there is not, you checked that already, stop poking around, it definitively should work on B.
OK, maybe admin privileges, there is I/O involved, didn't need that on A and C, but who knows - nope, doesn't work on B.
OK, maybe something wrong with the connection settings? First try at reinstalling driver - but no, it doesn't work on B.
OK let's try with another device - more/less devices on B. Other USB ports. No. Still does not work on B.
OK, this is stupid, but, is the cabling alright? It is, of course it is, stupid - but it still does not work on B.
OK, at that point I'm just gonna ask a colleague, GrumpySoftwareDev whether he has any clue why it doesn't work on B. GrumpySoftwareDev knows nothing, but discovers that one of his applications doesn't work on Windows 10. You know nothing, Jon Snow, but it doesn't work on B.
OK, now I'm just going to ask another colleague TheLastOfHisKind who handed B down to me somewhat bluntly if he ever experienced problems when working with B and its serial configuration. TheLastOfHisKind tells me he does not and kindly offers me some input on the situation. Still no progress to get it working on B but he hinted he might have fucked up B's driver. I already reinstalled the driver but didn't reboot, which comes after reinstall.
OK, I'm just gonna remove and re-install the driver, then restart. Hu! Now the UI is gone but another serial device reacted on a general call. Not fully working on B but we're getting there.
OK, I don't know, I'm getting frustrated, let's borrow another system D - which has roughly the same configuration as B - from my colleague StrongCurrentGuy. StrongCurrentGuy borrows me his system and cautions me not to break it. I install the driver, plug the device and copy the application from B. It just works on D. Not on B though.
OK, you know what. I'm done. For shits and giggles I'm gonna remove that driver again, reinstall it and restart, maybe it'll magically work afterwar- WHAT THE HELL, I JUST OPENED IT AFTER RESTARTING, IT JUST WORKS - ON B!
... seriously, what the fuck. But yeah, at least it works now.4
Server configuration file formats...
some use custom text file
some use ini files,
some use xml..
some use json..
some use yaml..
some use toml..
How many file formats I need to learn!!!11
'Hey I found a bug in your code, it's probably a typo, see here.'
Me: Oh right, yeah. How stupid of me. Thanks, I'll push it.
'It's okay. You can push it or I can do it too after you push the changes we just discussed. I actually simplified one of your methods.'
Me: You, what... ?
(You crammed multiple lines in a single line with your stupid as fuck, rigid constructs, removing my error handling, loosely coupled service, in the name of simplification?)
' Yeah it's just four lines in a single function now, no need to call the function again and again.'
Me: (No... Just no. This totally undos whatever little I could do to avoid supporting your idiotic object in the first place.)
Oh... okay, we'll see. I'll let you know.
Life in a company full of ignorant, inflated egos is no joke.
I created a service that reads a configuration file and returns the configuration. This person needs five entries for his app logic. He collected them in a object. Quite alright. Except that the class prototype is shitty. I, like a normal person, made my service return a value based on input. I was asked to incorporate this awful object so that I can return the five entries together, which is awful because the service is not supposed to know about how the entries are clubbed. It should most certainly not know about the data members of the object!4

Last Sunday, we deployed 300 major application/service configuration changes, 60+ load balancer changes, DNS cutovers, changes to mission critical SQL servers, and informatica connection changes. This impacted every line of business, all customer facing apps, and all internal apps.
6 days from DEV to PROD, which includes all developer effort.
Now I know this may cause people to hiss uncontrollably but it's Visual Studio 2017 for me

Xcode crashes during debugging.
Cannot SET custom keys in Info.plist, in watch target, ohhhh goood, but thats where app configuration is set, how and why do you care about simple string keys!!! What now i need to send that configuration from main app??
Tim Cook just go die please, you have ruined apple.3
Being a sysadmin can be the most frustrating thing ever, but it's worth it for those moments when you feel like an absolute ninja.

Anybody know any good Linux software to remember window position depending on screen configuration? Ideally I'd like there to always be two terminals on one of my monitors automatically, so if there's only one open it should open another one. Yeah, crazy requirements, sorry!7
Some Project Manager outsourced a redundant RADIUS setup with MySQL backend. We got 2 copies of a daloradius appliance running on Ubuntu 10.04. Once I saw this, I started to get a bit suspicious and requested to audit the system and database redundancy. With the system in production, and without getting back any documentation, I got into the VMs using the default root password. This was not even the worst part, as I found. One server was using a local MySQL instance, while the other was also using the first one's MySQL instance. When I reported this, I was told to comment clearly any changes to the configuration files, which resulted in commenting the word SHAME above each change.1
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

Why the flying fuck do i have to configure some BS in internet explorer to use curl in Powershell? I thought IE was finaly dying, but nope!4
Another guiding principle of Arch Linux development is freedom. Users are not only permitted to make all decisions concerning system configuration, but also choose what their system will be. Some choose to create paper-weights, some choose to make dumb-bells, still others melt down all the silicon and make a sword out of it.
By keeping the system simple, Arch Linux provides the freedom to make any choice about the system, including the choice to not have a system at all.

I invested in a brand new 27" curved monitor to work more efficiently with my laptop but now
HDMI isn't recognized by my linux distro on dual boot where it works perfectly with fucking windows and it used to work nice before the latest update
Tried to install official nvidia drivers to try to fix that
🙃 Guess who has a fucked up X configuration now 🙋🏾♂️3
I love to code but I hate to configure.😡😡
OK I hate to configure when it takes several hours and when there is no real documentation.2
So I installed the JACK audio connection kit on my Linux box, set up drivers, configured routings properly, etc etc.
Tried playing basic sounds. No output. Panic.
Redid configuration, tried again. No output. Panic++
Reinstalled JACK, tried again. No output. Panic++
Reinstalled drivers and checked ALSA (audio subsystem). All good. Tried again. No output. Panic++
Hit the Mute shortcut on my keyboard to unmute my speakers, tried again. Worked. :facepalm:
I am such an idiot, fml.1
My newly joined developer colleague had some problem starting the web app we are working on locally. After changing some configuration files,
Me: Restart the app
My Dev Colleague: Do I have to close it?
Me: Yeah, there will be a red cross on the right top corner, just click on that😑😒2
Spent ten plus years professionally coding, used c, go , python, openwhisk ,docker, kubernetes and God know what else. Now I have to convince those team members who coded so far in their free time that write fucking clean code, avoid dependency on distributed and hard coded configuration, how to build a product
Fuck my life2
Some days I'm really not sure if I'm a developer or everybody's general problem solver because I'm an engineer and can think critically about your site configuration THAT YOU SHOULD BE ADMINISTERING YOURSELF!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
"Doesn't work, must be the dev."
Wrong. You misconfigured something and fucked it up. Figure it out yourself - actually read the error message right in front of your face - and don't waste my time.9
Fuck this Apache Server on this elastic beanstalk!!! Nginx is so much better at configuration and ease of use!!!4
My department vp announced to our sales team that our company would have an online Web based catalog capable of custom style configuration, pricing calculation, quote generation. the catalog would manage all of our customers different discount rates automatically and notify the correct sales rep any time a customer completes a quote. This was announced on September 30(ish) with a launch date of December 1. I'm the only Web developer and I found out afer the announcement. :/2
Fucking mongodb... the name is really fitting "mongol db"..
I get that a NoSQL db can be very useful but holy crap mongodb is shit..
Even better is the security.. holy shit it's insecure..
"Just use the configuration to only allow 127.0.0.1" stfu that shit apparently doesn't work on fucking centos..
And yes my customer did get hacked
And yes they did blame me
And yes I did have a backup5
VS Code for sure. Same experience on win/*nix systems, built in debuggers, terminals, flexible configuration. I am so deep in love and can't recommend it more
Got a strange thing today in class, as a teacher in programming. We have a lab where the computers haven't yet their final configuration ended, so the user used by the students is the administrator of the computer. And today, a student calls me and tell "sir, the password isn't the one you gave to us" (temporary the same for each machine until we fix the configuration).
Go to student's place, password incorrect with a hint "you know the code : up, up, down, down... oh, you don't know, huh? Too old! Too bad!"
Password was - off course - "konami".
But... how a student born in 1997 can think he can troll me with the konami code?!
He wasn't even born when I played on the NES as kid!
Sometimes I'd like to teach my students how to fly by tossing them by the windows...1
Today's first day at my internship has been wasted by IntelliJ IDEA not importing a project properly.
On the bright side, other devs told me that it took them three days in order for all configuration to be set up.
Man, this sure feels unproductive.4
And then the PEN-Tester said... "MySQL configured to allow connections from 127.0.0.1. Recommend configuration change to not allow remote connections." hahahaha!
I feel like an idiot... I just realized why my builds were failing.
My entrypoint was setup as to not overwrite a specific file if it was already there. The problem is, the said file is auto-generated, and I need a different configuration for it to work properly in docker. But I forgot this, and the result was a failing build, plus me scratching my head for a few hours. :(3
PHP Websites configuration data stored in _hidden/config.inc
Yep, that .inc extension made it world readable.1
I used ShareX on Windows, but have had bad luck finding something with as much configuration options on Linux (Ubuntu). Any suggestions?
Edit: I'm currently using Flameshot, but feel like it's quite limited. I can't log in to Imgur for example.9
Just ran "rm -rf <project_folder>" instead of "rm -rf <project_folder>/Library/PackageCache"
I'm almost afraid to open the project itself right now
I stopped it like a second later, but still it has deleted some project configuration :(6
Linux has been around since back when dinosaurs punched holes in cards, but for some reason it still takes a few hours of googling and error debugging to do something as basic as connect to a wpa2-enterprise wifi network.
What the fuck? Where's the "connect to any standard work or school wifi network" command line utility distributed with all os flavors? Why can't I just put in a username and password and be done with it instead of sudo editing networking adapter configuration files manually?3
FUCK YOU AMAZON! Stop telling me my configuration yaml file contains a tab... THE FUCKING FILE DOES NOT EVEN EXIST!
Here by I introduce you the new Java Script framework and package manager that is going to change your life forever. We have considered all the problems developers are facing during their everyday career. We use latest techniques used in configuration files (xml, yaml, json, etc.), package managers (npm, gulp, yawn, etc) and other frameworks (require-js, vuejs, reactjs, etc) into consideration to bring you a framework that has them all together in ONE BIG PACKAGE! HAHAHAHAAHAAA!
Nope. I'm just kidding :-D1
So one of my employees pointed it local setup on the live database to test some weird behavior in an algorithm. Then he starte the next task and wiped his database to reload the fixtures. After that he realized, that he still had the live database credentials in his configuration file.1
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.
I finally switched from eclipse to netbeans! *hurray*
But it was not easy...
Netbeans didnt want to import first, so i coded myself a little program that prints a complete config file for my project...
So that was done.
But the colors... So ugly.
So i changed them to my eclipse colors.
Finally, after 3 hours of configuration and getting to know how exporting works, I AM DONE!
When your process (branching and environment configuration etc) takes longer than the actual dev task 🙄 #onelinechange4
Am I the only one her who thinks that deving on Windows is much easier than on Linux systems? I use Windows 10 and apart from the never ending updates, it is very usable, with a user-friendly ui and it works great on my configuration (though it was a gaming rig before, I just recently got into programming)4
I just setup a new VPS
I made all configuration required
I reboot the server
I forgot which port I set for ssh 😭
Luckily I have console to access from 😅14
OH MAH GAWD, FUCK ECLIPSE.
Just thank you so much Eclipse, for executing the entire build pipeline instead of running the last configuration.
Thank you so so much for considerately forcing me to clean upon every change to the codebase, also obliterating reliable hot code replace.
Special thanks for letting me clean once more, after the pipeline finished.
And thank you for the search bug, where all CTRL+H searches result in an error message, even though the search is being conducted.
Just go fucking die, you tremendous piece of garbage.7
FUCK YOU GOOGLE
I feel I have zero control as a developer.. You made the shittiest choice by bringing in intellij , you made an even worse choice by adding gradle.. You add thousands of configuration options to manifests, layouts but provide no common place to find documentation for them.. This is just nonsense.. I've wasted endless hours figuring out your dex limits, proguard rules.. It's just frustrating.. Could you be anymore counterintuitive with your unit testing framework! Honestly it's a steaming pile of shit..5
Moved all my configuration to json files from normal JS last night. It took me 10 mins to convert. Everything worked perfectly.
This morning I woke up with angry messages from everyone in the team. No one could run their code anymore. It took me whole day to find out that those jsons were the issue. I still don't know how though. 😥1
Oh my god, I'm basically at the verge of self-destruction! I've been trying all day to set up a simple Node server with react, but it's never that easy, is it? You need Babel to transpile ES6 + JSX to ES5, and then you need Webpack for god knows what reasons, and there are so man configuration files and options, and there are 1000 tutorials with 1001 ways to do something. I've created probably 20 new project because when I complete a tutorial and try to do something on my own, all hell is loose and I get some cryptic error message and am unable to ever get it to work. Holy cow, I need a drink... Am I just a retard? Greetings from Norway, by the way!7
EVERY FUCKING TIME I HAVE TO ASK FOR SOME DNS CONFIGURATION OTHER THAN A SINGLE "A" RECORD THE TI HEAD MANAGES TO FUCK UP...
WHAT THE FUCK IS SO HARD DUDE???
FUCKINGSUBDOMAIN > FUCKING.ALIAS.COM
THIS TIME OUR FUCKING PROVIDER CANT MANAGE ROOT DOMAIN CNAMES SO WHAT DID HE DO?
SIMPLE SAID "ALL DONE" AND ONE WEEK LATTER PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING BECAUSE THE FUCKING ROOT DOMAIN ISN'T WORKING...
COME ON DUDE, JUST KILL YOURSELF.
AND FOR THE FUCKING MILLIONTH TIME: DOMAIN REGISTAR AND DOMAIN MANAGER ARE TWO SEPARATE FUCKING THINGS! YOU CAN REGISTER YOUR FUCKING DOMAIN ON GODADDY AND MANAGE IT ON FUCKING CLOUDFLARE BY CONFIGURING THE FUCKING DNS SERVERS5
I've worked with few incompetent people till now, but one guy who stands out is my peer who is a "Lead Developer".
First of all he knows nothing!! Even Jon Snow knows something, but this guy knows absolutely nothing. And on top of that he has a hard ass attitude. Never sticks to coding standards, pushes unwanted configuration files to Git, uses too many nested loops even when not even a single one is required.
And when I suggest him something, he starts giving these lame ass reasons and tries to avoid my comments. Then I say, "good luck with that buddy" and move on!!2
I spent 4 hrs today setting up an Amazon ec2 instance. I screwed up one configuration file and broke everything. Grrrrrrr.2
When I saw a blog post said you need more than 1 cup of coffee to get AWS configuration done, I didn't believe it. Now I know... it's true. very true. It takes forever to make use of your config. By the time it's done, you already switch to something else.
Just migrated to Gitlab from Microsoft Team Services
Just thought it is better to have gitlab online and gitlab locally so I can use same configuration on both
There's no provisioning script. Code repo's there, but no configuration files. Missing folders that break the app. No documentation on what to install, what directories to create, NO instructions. Nothing. Just an empty Ubuntu vagrantbox and a git repo. Took the entire morning and then some, just to replicate the dev environment. Fuck
Manager brings up an idea, asks how long it would take to build out. I tell him a couple hours. I can be nice sometimes when the workload is light.
Build it out, make some improvements at home, create a dashboard so he can make small configuration changes.
We never use it.3
don't you love that moment when you are trying to set up a test environment but end up spending 3 days trying to get one little service to work?
I can't seem to find any auto dns that works with minimal configuration to use with vagrant or docker...1
I always find reading small configuration files way more difficult than reading a big codebase.
I accept config files do really help in writing a better flexible code and separating the logic and settings but always offer a stiff learning curve.
And often, people make changes in config either unintentionally or with half knowledge which works in local but later blows up the entire system.
Wondering how config files can be presented in a way that the learning curve is minimal and the understandability of its impact is more visible.
I do really like annotations or decorators which provides a closer visibility between config and code.
A prototype being used as production code written in procedural PHP with the code drawn using echo and MySQL (not MySQLi) all mixed together and the configuration with world readable database stored as config.inc.
All backed by a database with no foreign keys or data integrity of any kind.
Best feeling I've felt all week: Even though I don't have time today to install it, I got Wi-Fi on the minimal install ISO of Gentoo to work with almost no configuration. My shitty ass dongles actually work???
From long Using Visual Studio Code for Programming.
Why i love
plugins available like linter, git lense
Best for small web app projects.
And Favourite IDE, intellij Idea
For writing java i use as
it can easily generate getter setters
and build process.
best for java.
last but not the least
because most of the devops configuration, requires to be done via terminal only and i often use nano.
it is good for shell scripting,
that is all....2
every day I see full stack here and there...
full stack is not only db and code, but also "every step the bit goes through " from end user's screen/input to server and back to him
whether is an app or service, end user is only an example.
it's about knowing how the language behaves, how the server interprets and replies to requests, protocols, even how to do every single configuration on the systems you are using, and in my point of view that includes hardware.
pretty much that...
I get sic when I see on a resume claiming "I'm a full stack dev" and there's nothing on it saying that the guy knows at least to change a light bulb... lol
Even worse, when I see job offers asking for "Full stack Dev, with no experience" ...
that's not possible without experience ! sorry9
In a helper for a testing environment there was a flag called CheckLayoutConf. The documentation stated: if set checks if the layout configuration is valid and fixes it. I was curious about the validation and fixing mechanisms, so I looked into the code. But if the flag is set, then the layout configuration is just deleted, so in the next start of the program a new default layout configuration is created. Nice "validation" and "fixing" you for there, I thought to myself.
The most difficult part about learning/working with new technology is the lack of online support and a really small community! So every time you're stuck with an error you got to open each and every configuration file to see which little value was throwing that page long error!!!!
The same happened with me while working with the new RedHat CEPH Storage while I was configuring my nodes using ceph-ansible. A new error pops up and it was like reaching milestones when I found the error halting up the execution of the playbook!1
So I got access to a new Centos server. I had to install applications like Mysql, tomcat etc. The install was easy but configuration to be done were fucking headache. Admin guys were such Assholes that they dint care much to help. It took me 3 days to finally sort out and got things running. Yay! I believe I learnt a lot about Linux. Thank you Admin for being such an asshole✌️1
Just spent 10 minutes debugging why my game is launching with the console presets and UI only to see that I set my configuration to Console...
Got in trouble yesterday for deploying to a QA environment and NOT sudo vimming a file to change the hardcoded email recipient... Maybe, the dev who wrote that file should use our configuration files instead of hardcoding it!
Wait, why is nginx communicating from our cache servers to app servers using HTTP1.0? Added http_version 1.1 to a general config. Moments away our responses return 500 on our production because one of our module doesn't handle gzip. If I ever had a heart attack...
Let's see what's on the menu today:
* Web Application Catastrophe Special *
Includes, but not limited to:
- Orphaned server processes in the configuration management cluster
- Microservice back-end architecture with no API documentation
- Poorly implemented cache microservice with no documentation
- Stale data causing everything to be shown as down in production, despite everything running fine
Cost: 1 developer's sanity
Yay, I just finished the first stable-version of my configuration-manager wento. (Its only for nix-like OSes)
If you want to try it (or to break it),
You can find it on
(For Linux x64, the latest release contains a binary-version, for other eg. BSD,GNU..., you have to compile it yourself)
Client: I'm not able to see the mount storage
Me: share your configuration
Me: (frustrated but still kind and polite) I see the ports are swapped between hosts which is the culprit behind the issue.
Me: can I ask the reason behind doing this?
Client: I thought red color goes left and aqua goes right.
Me: 🦍 🤐🤐
Prettier formatter, AirBnB linter.
Prettier defaults to double quotes for strings. AirBnB loves it some single quotes. Would probably be able to change the configuration in order to maintain sanity *now*, but when I was a newbie dev, I was given a repo with AirBnB linting built in after being recommended Prettier.
It was not fun times.7
This is my first rant, so here it goes:
Working with a functional SME who's "too busy" for end to end testing and, this is a direct quote, "I'm confident that the technical team can fix anything which inadvertanly gets broken by configuration/process changes". Then when the inevitable happens and he breaks something, he refers the irate users to my team. I really hate this guy.
Thanks for listening, fellow Ranters.1
Ok, guys, which configuration format is your favorite? (something like toml, ini, json, yaml, etc)28
PM asked to mass configure the embeded system's wifi settings on remote locations where utp connection is not an option. No pre-configuration available. Systems already shipped.
PM: "You will configure it in puppet later on, right?"
Me: "Sure thing, boss."
Some things are best tought through experience.
some ppl seem to take too much pride in making everything configurable, tbh sometimes it just seems they're too lazy to make a decision
why not just ship the compiler with an empty text file and let the user "configure" the system it with code :/6
Why the hell did someone remove the wacom kernel module in android since 4.x? It wasn't hurting any body and instead gave people the ability to connect their wacom tablets to USB OTG compatible devices. As a result we have few apps that have wacom support in play store and shitty reputation that the rotten apple is better for all things media.
And for me it means I have to:
* Figure out a way to root my device
* locate correct version and configuration of currently running kernel.
* set up cross compilation toolchain
* build the kernel module
* transfer it to the device
* insmod it manually
* say a few prayers
.... All I wanted to do was paint 😢
MRW I spend hours merging/deleting needlessly scattered configuration options and logic, and the application runs successfully4
Recruiters with no clue (a recurring theme it seems).
Got an e-mail this morning via LinkedIn proposing a position in Zurich (Switzerland) doing customization of an application according to business needs, configuration of interfaces, gathering of requirements, 2nd level support etc.
DID YOU READ ANYTHING MY LINKEDIN SAYS? I work in storage support (doing mostly troubleshooting of FC/iSCSI issues between storage and hosts), and live in Amsterdam, and while I would like to pivot to a SW dev job, this seems to be way over my grade of experience, plus I have no desire to go living in Switzerland.
What the FUCK Synology! Why the fuck would you change the sshd source and manually hardcode specific shells that the users are allowed to use! https://serverfault.com/a/470919
I'm trying to test a new sshd configuration here, and this motherfucker is not letting me log in because it keeps receiving SIGCHLD and failing to handle it (because of course chsh is missing!) and it won't let me in.
THEN HOW THE FUCK AM I LOGGED IN IN THE FIRST PLACE???6
10 hours later...
"FINALLY, I'M DONE SETTING UP TYPESCRIPT CONFIGURATION"
I was heavily inspired by typescript syntax, but the configuration is as complicated as webpack. Damn you frameworks5
So I ordered an SSD. It's 1TB for some programs I want to startup faster. I have 3*1TB HDDs to store some movies, series and personal stuff (you know what I am talking about) and a 128 M.2 SSD for Windows. After connecting the new SATA SSD it wouldn't show up. After half an hour searching for a problem related to the wiring, UEFI configuration and other mythical problems coming to my mind I took the instructions of my motherboard. This was the moment I found out that those fuck faces implemented the biological feature of turning one thing off when using another.5
O.M.F.G how much longer is that gonna take?!?! It's been 2 days already! 2 fucking days!!!
That's it. Fuck the docs. I'm going hardcore now: hooking up a debugger and diving into the unseen depths of Spring's automatic JPA repo initialization.
Unless any one of you knows how to
1. Manually create jpa repo interface bean
2. Make transactions work [also enable them manually by declaring beans in @Configuration]
and do all this in a single @Bean method. Jpa provider - hibernate.
Nobody? Not a single one? Allright then, I'm going in :(1
Spent an entire week working on XCode configurations for a react-native+swift+objc bridging project. Been failing builds all week. Finally i look over to see the glorious word Succeeded!
Then I realized it was the clean that succeeded, not the build. FFS1
can anyone guess who said the following?
"Titanium allows us to launch new features really quickly and have an immediate impact. For example, we added an avatar builder with millions of configuration options, yet it only required a few lines of code to be different between iOS and Android."9
I'm crying internally. The project(s) i work on have configuration files with dev and prod-info, the prod is just commented out. But thanks to reasons everyone has a different dev environment so there are many dev-config-blocks. I just use mine and carry on, BUT SOMEONE ALWAYS COMMITS THOSE FILES. I JUST THOUGHT OF IT NOW, BUT I'LL PUT THOSE FILES ON A BLACKLIST. FROM NOW ON YOU CAN ONLY COMMIT THESE FILES DURING A FULL MOON.
There's also this codebase to create licenses for our products. The license data fpr every customer is there, commented out. If you wanted to create another license, comment something and comment out another thing and you're good to go. THAT'S NOT WHAT VERSIONING IS FOR.4
Fucking project lead!!! I was told to make a configuration script i have no experience in scripting yet he expects me to deliver it the following day!!!3
HIT THAT MOTHER!)#%Y!)!!! BREAKPOINT!!
God damn it, it's in Release configuration again.2
Application won't find proper base URL locally.
Application will find proper base URL on test and prod instances.
Excuse me, what the FUCK?3
It seems google index this link: https://devrant.com/search/...
for that query:
The Crashlytics build ID is missing. This occurs when Crashlytics tooling is absent from your app's build configuration.
I need to write the maintenance document in case I die.
Any idea what to include?
I have written a lot of software which include family business and other business depend on by myself.
I have an idea of adding my git user name and password. Email and social media user name and password.Configuration file/Configuration property. Troubleshooting information.Program overview.7
Why the fuck is windows always a bitch when it comes to font rendering. I mean we are not in 1995 to see such shitty fonts. The fonts look like shit and the ClearType text utility does nothing.
I mean even Android does hell of a lot better than Windows. I am comparing these two because both have to deal with fairly large amount of different H/W configuration and support them.
I already use Ubuntu so please don't tell me use Linux.
Also tried using the MacType third party tool. It works but not as good.2
That's pretty awesome -_- angular decides to simply discontinue older (half a year) versions of their cli tool by overwriting the older releases with an update notice. Causing my project (jsRant) to break until I update to the newest version.
This new version requires a different configuration so I have to update my entire project just to be able to deploy to production again....
A comment from the heart: f*** you angular.3
I haven't touched my OpenVPN server configuration in almost a year. Everything seemed to "just work" the way I wanted it.
I have now just found out that all ipv6 DNS queries were actually going to the wrong ip.
Why am I such a magnet for stupid shit like this?
Every time I try to do something beautiful, elaborate, complex, I always get some small shitty detail wrong.
It's like "close, but no cigar".
Bonus fun fact: I only found out thanks to Windows' DNS leak feature. Thanks, Windows!5
I finally managed to get my Wireguard setup to work in both ways! Beforehand I could ping from A to B, but not the other way around.
A network 10.1.0.0/16
B network 10.2.0.0/16
(both actually use multiple /24 subnets, but I reserve a /16 for each site for the sake of simplicity)
Lots of fiddling later this is my configuration:
A interface 10.1.199.1/32
A allowedIPs 10.2.0.0/16
B interface 10.2.199.1/32
B allowed IPs 10.1.0.0/16
ping from 10.1.1.1 to 10.2.1.1 => 172ms
ping from 10.2.1.1 to 10.1.1.1 => 172ms
it works, yay! now to add more sites...2
That moment after you have modified a lot of files so that the linter doesn't throw any errors... Only to realize you were missing the FUCKING BABEL CONFIGURATION FILE AND AFTER YOU ADD IT EVERYTHING WORKS JUST FUCKING FINE WITHOUT MODIFYING ALL THOSE EXTRA FILES!
So, I've been working on a new project, it's basically a java library/package/jar with a lotta nice gadgets and stuff in.
The current functionality is limited, but will expand more as time goes on.
Right now it's able to:
apply ARGB filters to images (changing ARGB values), save objects in files on disk(Serializer/Deserializer), send emails with working create/load/unload configuration-system which saves a user-config to a file, loads and works with it, but the most coolest thing...
random char generation MY GOOOODDD
yea just wanted to post this cuz im rly proud2
Grails 2.x all groovy syntax for code and configuration. Simple and elegant.
Grails 3.x all groovy syntax except for the main configuration file. Let's make that a YAML file. F#%king genius!1
finally got my server up and running with a configuration I'm happy with! running Proxmox VE on the host, and each application in an LXD Linux container within Proxmox, and a reverse proxy server on the host to route subdomains to internal container IP addresses. check out what I've got running! https://mjones.pizza2
New Year's day 10am I got a text message from the product owner.
To wish me a happy new year one would guess. But no! She was telling me that the cron job that I developed 2 years ago failed and I need to apply the change on the configuration manually.
What really irritated me was that was no matter of life and death, this could wait for us to get back at the office. Or even worse, she could have done the change herself, after all she was checking emails anyway.
What a b.2
I fucking hate environnement configuration so much that I prefer to debug 8 hours straight rather than lose my time and shit for 2 hours on idiotic configuration problems and jump from page to page like a dumbass
"Hey you want that module, download it here !"
"Oopsie, starting from X version of the JDK/JRE this is no longer standalone and directly embedded in"
"Can't find it ? Well I just forgot to tell you that starting from Y version this is COMPLETELY removed from what I just told you to search in and now in another standalone package"
"So now you added your package as dependency for you project, your IDE detects everything well but can't run your code ? That's because it doesn't work anyway, use another method found on the dedicated Github issue which makes little sense and that you have to apply everytime, then sacrifice your inexistent newborn to connect to the 9th circle of hell where Java resides so everything will work"
I knew I couldn't get away using fucking Java and JavaFX3
Just read a rant about webpack and suddenly the hate boiled up again ...
Why is it just so damn annoying to configure?
Just make it like gulp or so where you have an actual idea on the workflow, rather than just throwing in plugins at random and let magic happen without knowing wtf is going on.
Tried to update an ejected Angular4 project to angular 5 ... after 2h i gave up and dropped some stuff to use angular-cli again.3
After some time, planning to install Linux again for personal use and some dev work at home. My current pc is getting too slow sometimes and it irritates me a lot.
My current pc 2gb RAM, Dual core Intel, 32 bit.
Main criteria, os should be fast, I can compromise on GUI, should be stable, should support my old configuration. I like to work on Java/Scala, python, js and sql. Eclipse will be there since I use it at work.
Short listed Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS,
mint (huge confusion on gui),
Opensuse, elementary OS and arch. I had Ubuntu, mint for some time as secondary OS. Arch will be totally new world for me. I have tried few OS in USB boot but couldn't fix one.
Right now I am confused about which one to choose, since everything looks fine but I want the best choice based on my criteria.10
Our configuration manager is leaving for a new job and now the office is crumbling.
How do you deal with person dependencies at your workplace?4
Tries to fix nginx configuration, that somehow shows the default page for hours. Finds out that the site was not enabled. nginx 1.6 problems
It took me five hours to find a Byte Order Mark added at the beginning of a configuration file of a php application.
Everything was working but every downloaded file was corrupted (the bom sequence was prepended to the content).
just logged onto a client's AWS RDS Security Configuration.
it sets 3306 access to be allowed from 0.0.0.0
The concept of designing and building a testable application is apparently a very alien one to my colleagues.
1. The application cannot be used without gigabytes of data.
2. The application must be fully connected to all external systems at all times.
3. Convention over configuration is unheard of, so if you manage to achieve the above, it still takes hours to set up the damn thing.
It's amazing how many nice build tools there are to make life easier as a web developer. Learning those tools themselves and figuring out why / when they are useful is always pretty confusing haha, endless configuration details. Perhaps more so for myself because I only stared Programming in 2014. But now that I have learned how to use them more extensively I couldn't imagine how much of a pain it would be to not have them.1
So yesterday at a client location, our support guy called me and said this thing is trimming the characters whenever I save it. It was a ckeditor in our application, so basic troubleshooting was to check the system configuration for that page and the ckeditor configuration.
Checked the system configuration, ckeditor configuration, found nothing.
Out of curiosity, checked the schema for the table in which the data is stored, so one of the idiots took the backup of original table and appended it with the date time on which it was backed up. And created a new table with field data type of varchar with a 255 limit.
This was in UAT server as well as Production server. Changed the field type to text again in UAT. Asked to team to get the same thing done on Production server as well.
Client needed their site transferred to our hosting environment with "NO downtime"... easy enough. Our provider doesn't support their configuration so they need their site rebuilt on our platform... again, no problem. Their current hosting plan expired YESTERDAY and they're running off the fumes of the grace period... now we've got a problem.3
The PHP rally cry. You can find this phrase frequently in just about any php documentation. Hey now hang in their my php children, we'll get through this 20 line auth configuration together.
Just ran a terraform configuration to set up my infrastructure on digital ocean
My god i'm in love3
Anyone here familiar with nginx site configuration?
I'm trying to set up it so that my nginx server serves a static website on my domain, redirects users attempting to access via HTTP to HTTPS and proxies a locally hosted server to a subdomain.
At the moment I'm struggling with how I can make both work as you can only bind a port once.
If you know resources that could help me setting up the domains, I'd appreciate it very much.
Thanks in advance. ;)10
Why Unity, why did you decide to need a graphic card from 3080 to run smoothly?!?! Even in low graphics configuration...3
Isn’t the usage of environment variables common for golang apps?
I interviewed for a company which made me develop a golang backend service and I used environment variables for sql connection strings and client and secret IDs and all.
When I submitted them the project, the feedback was that the tech person isn’t familiar with dotenv configuration.
Any inputs about any other way this could’ve gone?3
What do you guys use to manage your Linux configuration files?
I have loads of files comming from desktops and servers. Sometimes I store it in a text file .. sometimes I make a sip of the dir. This leaves me with random configs scattered everywhere. Just looking for some best practices. I have had suggestions to use git in the past.
p.s I am not taking about passwords here.5
Last weekend I was working on a small project for a friend of mine: a dockerized webapp, plus API backend and DB. I had some problems with the installation on the vps and had to try out different images and never really did a complete setup of my usual dotfiles. Got it running on an Ubuntu distro. Everything great.
It was the first release so I still had to check that every configuration worked ok, like letsencrypt companion container, the reverse proxy and all that stuff, so I decided to clone the whole project on the server tho make the changes there and then commit them from there.
Docker compose, 10 lines of code, change the hosts and password. Boom everything working. Great... Except for the images in the webapp.
WTF? Check the repo, here they are, all ok. I try different build tactics. Nothing. Even building the app on another docker always the same. Checked browser cache, all the correct ports are open. I even though that maybe react was still using some weird websocket I didn't know, but no.
Damn, I spent 5 hours checking why the f*** the server wouldn't make it out.
Then, finally, the realization...
I didn't install the f******* git-lfs plugin and all I was working with were stupid symbolics links! Webpack never even throw an error for any of the stupid images and the browser would only show a corrupted image, when decoding the base64 string.
Literally the solution took 5 minutes.
F*** changes on production, now I do everything on a fully automated CI.
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
Finally got that damn web app to send out mails (2am). Turned out mail server worked, rails was properly configured, delayed jobs were running and were getting proper rights and environment. The issue was wrong configuration in app itself (somebody skipped part of the wizard). But still, fixing somebody's else server with webapp I know just a little about in languages I know even less about (not a web developer) after few guys failed and just within five hours, makes me feel both dumb (should have noticed much sooner) and proud (figured it out in the end).
Faced with a problem, trying for days every solution, libs, tutorial and So threads. Getting desperate, reading framework source code. Reading again. Realizing it's just a configuration matter. Feeling stupid like shit2
I should create a contact form for support requests.
Me: I can't connect to the mail server with the settings you've send me.
Employer: It works. I can send and receive mails with Outlook.
Me: Ok, I will check my code.
Employer: It has to work. I even checked the informations I send you about the mail server settings and they are the correct ones.
I've tried every configuration which could be possible and rewrote my code. It wont work, so I tried to use my own mail server and it worked immediately.
Me: I've tried everything but I can't connect to your mail server. After a while I've tried to connect to my own and it works just fine.
Ah yes back from school, back into trying to get Arquillian to work. After trying to build on Jenkins (just for a test if they fixed some of the Problems) suddenly it wont even build properly, because they removed the datasource that my Arquillian tests were running on. Great. Not only are my tests not working now, but the whole fucking thing won't build and trying to get a datasource into the Arquillian Container is a pain the ass.
I've set it up according to multiple tutorials. But it always tries to read a non existant datasource... Why, why, why the fuck do I have to do this shit. I fucking hate everything related to JBoss. It... never... works.
Is it normal to find yourself spending days sifting through documentation, often outdated, when learning new tools/frameworks as a developer? Sometimes finding myself doing this just to write 2 lines of code to interface something/configuration and I’m not sure if I’m better off just forcefully coding my own fix while knowing there’s a solution out there in the haystack.2
Hmm. I've been wondering how I'll deploy an api based on a microservice style the smartest way... The general plan was to use salt to setup the base server and install dependencies and add the configuration.. Doing updates would be a git pull and pm2 restart api. I would love to know how you deploy your software ?1
Spring boot does very much automagically.... but to find every possible configuration is hard....
I found out that it has an automatic config for Scheme Server... but how the fuck to configure it 😑
And do I still need avro made domain objects 🤔 it's hard to fight through all these documentations and versions of spring. 😖
When you end up running support queries and QA as a developer because the client's on site support team blame the provider instead of their half-assed user configuration job. #IHopeYouGetFiredAssholes
AWS and serverless is the future right?
Lambda functions are easy right?
I mean yeah it sounds easy enough to deploy a function and see it run wow, magic, but then in reality you need a lot of stuff:
Maybe 3rd party libraries
AWS configuration hell
Terraform or some shit to make it work
Integrate with other AWS services
Documentation sucks, mocking aws services locally also sucks, you have to write a billion different configuration before you can even begin to implement code.
Fuck my life4
Automating installation and configuration of an automation tool would actually save some time, which itself is supposed to save time. Puppeteering 2000 nodes of F5 loadbalancer and BIG-IP configuration spiderweb is actually fucking with me, oh well btw, that is the smallest task of whole project and none in my team are able enough to write a decent puppet class.
Deadline today, hoping to finish it up soon, getting back to you soon when I am done with it, cheerio devRanters!
Western Digital takes forever to RMA their hard drive under warranty. Had to buy a spare just to get my NAS back up and running before I lose everything (I only have a 1 drive fault tolerance RAID array). Too bad I only have 5 drive slots. 4 4TB WD Reds and an SSD for caching = 10TB usable space in this configuration. Actually this kinda pisses me off....I pay for 4TB drives and I get 3.64TB. For the 4 drives, that's a loss of 1.44TB.2
Srsly Ansible/awx? No migrate scripts in a Django powered application? No one commits „python manage.py makemigrations“? 🤬
Form plugin for WordPress on a seriously out of date install won't update until I update WordPress core. Fine, I update core and update the plugin and test the forms again. Form still isn't sending emails on submission. Look into forms settings. Oh look error messages, awesome!
Message: "There are 2 configuration errors"
OK, what are the errors where are the errors?
"There are two configuration errors."
Gee that's really fucking helpful, why even tell me you can see the errors if you aren't going to fucking tell me where the blasted things are. Spend 4 fucking hours trying to figure this out, checking "docs" wiki, support forums, nothing.
Finally decided to just trash the client's form plugin they were using and installed my reliable Gravity Forms.
P.S. if you are going to write code to find errors, and tell me about them, then you had better fucking tell me what the goddamned error is. There is no need to waste a developer's time trying to debug your shitty plugin because you couldn't be bothered to write a useful error handler.
Fuck Swift. Such a garbage language. The last 3 days I tried multiple web server implemented in Swift for mocking API's and none of them worked. Old, not maintained, wrong documentation, wrong code examples and just low quality shit.
Finally I decided to not give a crap and move to use Wiremock and it works out of the box, start and configuration is a breeze and it just plainly works. I should have done that from the beginning.
Btw., as a warning these were the frameworks I used and you should avoid them if possible: Swifter, Embassy, Ambassador and Succulent.1
Fuck maven. For fucks sake. If you want to install something in js project, you do yarn add ... and shit works. If you want to install on linux you do apt-get ... If you want to install ANYTHING on windows in fuckin 2020 you download it and it has an .exe.
But not maven. Oh nooooo. You need to do all the bullshit with configuration, set shitty paths and just pray for someone to shoot you.
Don't punish me for Windows. It's a God damn corporate policy not my sane choice...33
I've got a Linux Server running with 2 NVMe disks in RAID 1 configuration using mdadm. But if I want to create a big file, say 4GB, the whole system starts to hang.
I found out it's because of the journaling process which gives the CPU a long IOWAIT.
My problem is, I want to unzip a huge file, but this results in an immense server hang. Is there any way to do this without the server hang?
I unzip it inside of a docker container, if that is of any help.8
Since 2 days I try to get opencv for python installed on my notebook but it doesn't work. On my desktop machine at work everything is fine but on my notebook it makes me cry - this sucks1
Stuck on linux configuration problem. Looking for solution full day. And at last I found solution! Just needed to add -b option to my command.1
I had to contact my ISP's tech support because I suddenly lost my Internet connection. I explained to the guy who answered that my router was working fine, and that my devices could connect to my WiFi network, but they didn't have Internet access.
He was so confused because he didn't understand that WiFi and the Internet are not the same thing. He then made me reboot my router and reset my configuration (like I hadn't done that before) and eventually ran out of ideas and scheduled a technician to visit my house next week. What a moron
Going back and forth with Microsoft technical support right now over a SharePoint issue. Good Lord I want to reach across the wire and smack them in the face with a sea bass. Not enough to hurt, but get their attention and smell like fish for a while.
No genius, the warning on the PowerPivot Data Refresh page 'Warning: this page is not encrypted for secure communication ..' IS NOT the problem. The error messages I sent *three times* from the ULS logs are the symptoms you need to be researching. Stop guessing and trying to blame any random message you see on our configuration.1
I have configured on my local desktop a pi.hole and Stubby. They were working fine and happy together, but after a comment from @FrodoSwaggins about local DNS server, I trying to add Unbound as well.
So, on my configuration, pi.hole points to unbound, which points to Stubby. Everything local, each one with their own ip@port listener, but it does not work.
If I point Unbount to an external DNS (Quad9, for exemple), it works. If I point pi.hole to Stubby, it works. But the 3 of them does not work.
Does anyone has any idea what could be happening?
My least successful one.. This is definitely dwm-status.
It is a daemon which sets the status bar of dwm with many configuration options. The main selling point is the way it updates: It listens to updates like file changes, dbus messages, output of a running process to be as less power consuming as possible.
Was a lot of fun to dive into rust! :)
EDIT: for the interested ones the link: https://github.com/Gerschtli/... :)4
Today I was going to wipe an server used for testing purposes, I thought that all vms are just tests that has been left over from restored backups.
Was in the raid controller configuration ready to format the drives an couple of menu navigation away, a colleague came looking for me and said an website was not working, strange...
Turns out that one VM responsible for hosting our internal websites was on that machine
Fello SASS users!
I'm still an avid user of Compass, but since it doesn't support new versions of SASS I know I should move on
One of the main reasons I've stayed with it, is for its configuration file.
So what do you guys use now? Is Node SASS the way?3
Programming embedded systems from scratch. All hardware, memory, timers, peripherals, etc, must be set up correctly at startup, and if you set even one single bit incorrect in any of the sometimes hundreds of 32- or 64-bit configuration registers, you are screwed. There is often no terminal that prints error messages to help you, but if you are lucky you have an (often very expensive) hardware in-circuit debugger to step through the start up code.2
I'm looking forward to upgrade my gaming configuration but shit me I'm lost in all those references.
I'd like the best motherboard with the best i7 8th gen with the best 32GB rams, by best I mean the components that will give me the best performance, I've already got a 1080ti and my current motherboard is an Asus z170 pro gaming (if that helps with the dimensions or anything else).
If someone can point me to some references/names/websites I'd be happy.9
I need to install a web hosting control panel with limited access for web developer. but most panels mess up with other server configuration (e.g mail server and ...).
What do you suggest. Is there any panel that doesn't break other configurations?7
Through pain, sweat, tears, sickness, blood, and endless confusion between Linux system and windows system configuration, and finally learning the fundamentals of a new language, I have officially broke ground on a new project. Here's to hoping it doesn't end in GitHub hell with the rest
meeting was about how we as developers should abide by the rules that compliance set forth. we argued that we cannot do our jobs if they block access and configuration on our development systems. they dont realize that our dev boxes are configured organic in nature to allow for those stupid deadlines.
*plugs in Sun Microsystems Type 6 keyboard*
Okay, several questions:
- Why is my Compose acting like Super?
- Why does Meta no longer exist?
- Why does Menu no longer exist?
- Why is Num Lock stuck on?

Not the worst but kinda recent,
Me and my partner wrote a cool distributed service and tested it carefully on both windows and linux.
The course staff failed to run it, and guess what, it's our responsibility that their configuration is fucked up and we lost precious points in our grade due to that. All with a full backup of the responsible professor.
Luckily it's my last ever course and I don't give a sh*t.1
It's ridiculous that the server factory default configuration is of worst efficiency while providing zero performance advantages.
I want to learn Spring framework. A bit of research shows that spring boot allows me to skip all the painful xml configuration and generally makes life a bit easier. However, what if I have to maintain an old spring project in near future?
a. Should I learn spring before spring boot
b. What is the best resource for the above?3
Spent yesterday customizing my homepage via start.me. Now all my rss feeds and commonly used websites are singularly located on my homepage across browsers. I updated fedora, and changed my desktop to cinnamon. I installed, mint, kali, and arch. Still finishing up arch configuration lol. Procrastinated my group project further. I gotta say, best way to end a year, I've had yet. (And I've had a few now, cuz I'm starting to get old. Lol. Ha. 😫)
I always wanted to avoid the stereotypical green text black background terminals especially in public when people keep giving me weird and scared looks, however i realised that in the bright daylight of an outdoor coffee shop, green text on a black background is the only configuration that doesn't make me sprain my eyes. It's actually useful and not just a Hollywood movie trope.1
Got a western digital my cloud and WD my cloud home for thanksgiving. Cloud has pretty cool firmware and locally managable admin console. But cloud home is only internet accessible but only have basic stuff like link sharing with good hardware configuration. I am in a kind of confused state which one to return. Guys help!!
I had just began filling in my social security for disabilities application after dropping out of my music education program, and I received a call from my mother-in-law who met a man who was interested in mentoring a new developer. I had bits of previous experience in C++ and router configuration from my CCND class and knew... I was HAD to call that man.2
Thinking could configure the server while being productive and fixing a bug. But noooo selenium has to be intrusive and take over the entire screen while it does it's shit, I move the window I'm working in to the other screen and selenium decides to open up another window on that screen...
Sorry for being able to multitask...
Who the fuck decided to use selenium to configure the server when it is possible to side load the configuration?!
Made a wonderful and good working module for a server. A few days later the jar file got renamed to a .BAK file. From the stacktrace I figured out itd be the configuration file (Json) that was crashing. Guy wouldnt send the config. Told him the problem but he ignored me.
Three days later he came up to me that he forgot a comma at the line end.
I hate it, when symfony stops the execution without any hint if you configure a dependency-injection with a non-existing class or a call on a function that does not exist.
The only reliable debugging is supported for di configuration of constructors.
It feels like, "oh. You wanna call a function or give us the classname via dependency-injection? Good luck yankee!! Better know your shit xD"
lets try again.
What the fuck is with apache. Why I cannot start the page. it should be 5 minutes work.
but it give some shitty error where it is not clear what is wrong
This site can’t be reached timetracker.local’s server IP address could not be found.
Checking the connection
Checking the proxy, firewall, and DNS configuration
Running Windows Network Diagnostics
how long apache is being developed? 10 years ? more? and cannot make normal error messages so you would know how to fix the problem . fuck that. I hate it so much. wasting my time. bastards.15
There are so many frameworks out there that already have their ways to connect the client application with the server one and then from the former to a Database, that I'm wondering how someone can build such server applications(for example in C++), then connect them to a Database (for example SQLite) and setup all the network configuration for a server running from home without getting mad2
a thing I heard from ops: installing this library update breaks how we manage updates. so let us not update. and use the old libraries that have security issues and don't work with code. we can not change our configuration management tool or update it either. because we have been using it for 15 years.4
Use linux they said. It is stable they said.
I use a linux VM for managing DNS with BIND and configuration via WebMIN.
A minor webmin update : Sure, let’s click.
“Update failed. WebMIN requires UnZIP” Poof whole interface is down. Here we go for 30+ minutes of manual rolling back, installing unzip, retrying update. That shit only happens on linux.23
Working. Finding a bug. Quick-fix. New bug. New bug. New bug. Spending 1 hour looking for Quick easy solution. Getting distracted with a more complicated solution. Spending 1 hour researching. Back to problem, one more hour bruteforcing the problem. Finding it was just about a configuration problem. Fix in 5 minutes. Repeat everyday.1
When people use comments for build configuration. And don't put down handy comments like "uncomment this if you want to do that".
I guess what I'm saying is that this "code cleanup" task is turning into a "code keep the bloated baseline" task.3
When Eclipse releases a powerfull Project configuration tool with not a single line of helpfull comments and I have to pleasure to add Features for my Company ....6
This is really a rant:
The company i work for uses the wso2 enterprise integrator for message transformation and so on.
I am in charge to get this thing to work.
And i am so annyoid about this fuc**** crap software, there price it as lightweight, fast and easy to use?
EASY TO USE?????
Who the fuck there had the IDEA to use XML as configuration files.
They have kinda no documentation, even searching the web makes no sense because you only can find there crap documentation, once i searched after another problem and found my own Stackowerflow question, which had a totally different term!!
And i guess they are making no testing, i mean if i want to edit a api and i set one bracket false or so, than if i click on save, i am doomed, BECAUSE IT DELETES THE CHANGES WITHOUT WARNING ME, i mean srsly are you kidding me wso2???1
soooooo we are still trying to make the mapping from the classes to hibernate, almost 7 hours and all the time every change we do, we have to close netbeans and open it again to "refresh" the hibernate configuration ._. we have seen the netbeans logo all the f*cking night ._.2
Installing the entire system on new machines. Too many configuration files and too much manual work. (New workplace, haven’t automated it yet)
Maybe someone can help me.
Guys my team uses a master catalog to configure products in CRM application.
The master catalog is a "hidden Eclipse", it has the same interface. But this application has really problems with performance, is too slow.... It usues only 500mb of ram per users.
I try to find a configuration properties but nothing...
Do you have any idea?
(Is like the "Smart Insert" as the image attached btw)5
I don't like setting up servers and things. I know how to (I spent 1.5 years using archlinux and I know a lot on what's going under the hood). I like the functional paradigm where the same input yields the same result. I don't like having side effects although I know they can be necessary.
I would have to create a script to handle the configuration process instead of spending hours redoing it.
That's what I love about Heroku even if it's pricey. Almost no configuration at all. Attach some addons, configure a few env variables and everything else is in the code.
Recently I've been tasked with setting up of a small /mid-size infrastructure and I've been documenting things like infrastructure design, network configuration all the way to playbooks and cluster configuration.
Since I just started with this, until now I have been doing this in a Google doc / some spread around markdown files. I would like to have a better way of having this documentation hosted internally..
I have been playing around with local installations of rtd, gitbook and mkdocs. So far, I've liked the simplicity and customizability of mkdocs.
Any other options before I commit myself to mkdocs?2
I started learning WordPress out of curiosity.
Configuration and deployment was easy peesy.
Site is up and running, BUT
Real challenge is, customize it according to clients requirement.
I purchased paid theme as well. It has theme builders installed to.
But I couldn't make it according to client requirements.
I neither found any resource where I could learn WP site customization.
What I'm doing wrong?18
I was planning on migrating my Mastodon instance to a new node, but then I looked carefully at my deployment scripts. I had built in support for multiple servers, but not everything supports it, and the configuration is messy now that I think about it.
Now I need to write a bunch of tests, and then refactor a bunch of my code. Hopefully I can get this done before I run out of space on my Mastodon instance. It's gonna be a fun day. :-P
Making distributed scheduler that queue and run tasks on containers or other executors in future and also pulls new tasks from defined git repositories.
Tasks are added based on simple yaml configuration.
Need that for my side projects that gather data from multiple sources from time to time.
k8s looks to heavy for that and airflow can’t be configured like I want it to be so I started writing my own on Monday.
Nearly finished poc version.2
My "The rule of St. Benedict, as your Code of Conduct" repository has more stars than the repository of my Emacs configuration in Github, haha. https://github.com/saint-benedict/...1
I am having exactly the same issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions...
Does anyone know how to fix it?1
So I've been tackling the Multer package with express and react, Christ what a nightmare so far. I can't get anything to work.
- Images as array string in mongoDB check
- enctype on the form, check
- state for the field set to an array, check
- type file check
- express configuration based on the Multer docs check
Everything as far as I can tell is as it should be, yet nothing gets saved.
I think I have configuphobia.
When you need to setup configurations for like anything, it's always super loosely coupled and can break when you even breathe on it.
Database table columns? Configured once.
Authorization management? Create a user and configure the password and username in the application.
Backups? Configure the network path to backup to.
All these things are so EASY to break!
Maybe I'm overcautious, but I really dislike it.
There are ways around it of course, like documentation and automation, but it's all so much work. And even then it's still loosely coupled.
What do you all do to keep your configs working without getting nightmares?3
Seriously fuck dreamhost.
First, their configuration is more complicated than it needs to be. Then their website is slow and buggy. Penultimately, their support people don't understand English, are bots, or are dumb as bricks. Finally, they don't have a custom ALIAS record for interop with Heroku.
I'm so glad I'm almost done switching! (Last domain will be transferred away on Friday!).
For 2020 I want to achieve more insight of my already running collaboration service/tool for businesses by talking more to managers, chiefs and workers.
And for a better internet community a GUI for NGINX for home servers (any PC) that could interface with purchased domains to make configuration become automatic, to make self hosted web-apps/services more accessible and streamlined.
So glad I decided to use Spring Boot... Love it's bean configuration for dependency injections... Also love the RowMapper interface that's used with the JdbcTemplate. No more redundant Exception handling over and over again and I can still get close to the metal with writing my own queries. DOPE.
Software Installation happens through "point and click", also does system configuration and infrastructure. Servers are _pets_ and get reused and re-purposed after decommissioning. Command Lines, Terminals and scripting languages are buh and scary; We don't use them. Repetitive tasks are good, because once you know them you can do them faster and better. Windows servers are good, because we want to be like Microsoft ...2
i just learnt how much clearcase sucks the hard way. i always used git for personal projects and am used to finding a simple solution to any problem at most one stackoverflow away, i just messed up my local repo, and experienced people could not manage to undo it. i mean come on, this is a f**king versioning software, how hard can it be to delete everything local and re-pull from remote without messing up configuration files? either clearcase has some serious design shortcomings for my understanding of a versioning software, or it is so overly complicated that nobody actually knows how to revert this mistake.2
This had just happened, I was trying to increase the default timeout of an nginx running in a container for a proxy pass and always got a 504-gateway timeout response. I was setting proxy_connect_timeout, proxy_send_timeout, proxy_read_timeout, send_timeout, keepalive_timeout, etc. and nothing worked, after two hours of adding and removing lines of configuration (and waiting 1 minute for every time I tried a request), then I realized I have a local nginx for redirect server names to local ports (the container), that nginx was the one that actually responds with the 504 error, after that I tried a request with the port of the container ALL WORKED!!!!
Permissions service that allows users completely unknown to the system full access.
If you happen to be a known user, but just happen to hate being restricted, just remove the connection configuration on the client side, you get full permissions anyway.
I finally reached a point in configuring my desktop where there is only one thing left to fix, the window control buttons.
Even though I don't think they look ugly, they make everything look a bit macOS-esque.
Can anyone recommend some or has an idea for a design?
Edit: more full scale versions of the images are in the comments.5
User gives printee asset # to configure scan to email function... Configure SMTP server settings ensure everything is correct... Ask user to test it... No go... Try different SMTP server still no go... Tweaks Configuration settings... No go... Finally after getting annoyed at my quite possible incompetents, I ask the user to confirm the printer asset number... They gave me the wrong printer asset the first time... [face palm]
This conversation happened yesterday between me and a client:
"I need drivers for my Hackintosh build, macOS doesn't find and install the graphics card and the NIC"
I laughed at first, then i asked him his configuration..
"I have a 6700K and an MSI M3 H170"
Okay, things are getting worse here...
"So do you know the difference between H170 and Z170?"
"Yes, I have bought an H170 one because i do not overclock"
"Then, tell me why the f*ck you have bought a K processor if you do not f*cking overclock..."
"Because is more powerful"
F*ck no, he didn't said that...
Today after the week and a lesson time in an high-school I got back home and decided to play some sacred 2
I had already installed some mods on it given that I have already finished it years ago and I wanted some challenge.
It ends up that the mods add too much difficulty, so I open up the configuration files of the mod (some sort of Lua tables) and then spend like an hour and half doing some reverse engineering on it to find a middle way between the vanilla and the Uber difficult mod
guys according to you? are we making development of web hard or easy, being a php dev all i have to is copy and paste the files but with node, all sort of configuration and still i'm not able to see hello world on my website2
How do you handle your configurations of your prompt, ide, etc especially when changing or reinstall the pc? Do you use something similar to git repos with dot files or are there other good methods to manage all of this?1
So I was writing SaltStack state for syslog management and I had a simple config file in place to be deployed on a test server. I was writing the command to run the state for the test server, and the only thing that was left was to type the hostname of the server (instead of wildcard) when someone interrupted me. After I got back to this terminal I instinctively pressed return sending test configuration to over 80 production servers. Nice one...
Relatively often the OpenLDAP server (slapd) behaves a bit strange.
While it is little bit slow (I didn't do a benchmark but Active Directory seemed to be a bit faster but has other quirks is Windows only) with a small amount of users it's fine. slapd is the reference implementation of the LDAP protocol and I didn't expect it to be much better.
Some years ago slapd migrated to a different configuration style - instead of a configuration file and a required restart after every change made, it now uses an additional database for "live" configuration which also allows the deployment of multiple servers with the same configuration (I guess this is nice for larger setups). Many documentations online do not reflect the new configuration and so using the new configuration style requires some knowledge of LDAP itself.
It is possible to revert to the old file based method but the possibility might be removed by any future version - and restarts may take a little bit longer. So I guess, don't do that?
To access the configuration over the network (only using the command line on the server to edit the configuration is sometimes a bit... annoying) an additional internal user has to be created in the configuration database (while working on the local machine as root you are authenticated over a unix domain socket). I mean, I had to creat an administration user during the installation of the service but apparently this only for the main database...
The password in the configuration can be hashed as usual - but strangely it does only accept hashes of some passwords (a hashed version of "123456" is accepted but not hashes of different password, I mean what the...?) so I have to use a single plaintext password... (secure password hashing works for normal user and normal admin accounts).
But even worse are the default logging options: By default (atleast on Debian) the log level is set to DEBUG. Additionally if slapd detects optimization opportunities it writes them to the logs - at least once per connection, if not per query. Together with an application that did alot of connections and queries (this was not intendet and got fixed later) THIS RESULTED IN 32 GB LOG FILES IN ≤ 24 HOURS! - enough to fill up the disk and to crash other services (lessons learned: add more monitoring, monitoring, and monitoring and /var/log should be an extra partition). I mean logging optimization hints is certainly nice - it runs faster now (again, I did not do any benchmarks) - but ther verbosity was way too high.
The worst parts are the error messages: When entering a query string with a syntax errors, slapd returns the error code 80 without any additional text - the documentation reveals SO MUCH BETTER meaning: "other error", THIS IS SO HELPFULL... In the end I was able to find the reason why the input was rejected but in my experience the most error messages are little bit more precise.2
Y'all! I finally managed not to feel too completely incompetent with Magento1!
They have the most confusing configuration system ever. Can't wait to switch to Magento 2 with a proper do system among other things.
Stupid Nhibernate! Half day to get a domain configuration barely working! I hate you.
Someone know some resource to learn about Nibernate by the code? It seems awesome and I'm a noob.
Huh, just created a job in Jenkins to run msbuild over some solutions. The job accepted a parameter called "Configuration" which was just some simple JSON.
Everytime I ran the job, msbuild failed.
Then I realised that the Debug/Release info for a .NET Solution gets put into an environment variable called "Configuration" that msbuild creates and relies on! >.<
Needed to get data from a server of SOMEONE ELSE (a server I can't change the configuration). But keep getting the same error. After a few hours of searching google finaly found an answer.
Only to find out that it had to do with the server configuration.
I spent half a day trying to figure out why the app on the staging server does not log in the app log file while it does on the dev server.
Server log said log config file found but could not find the root logger.
Problem was that the directory was readable for the app, but not the logfile configuration file.
Dear devs, when a file is not readable that might be some interesting information one could write into a log. AT LEAST MORE INTERESTING THAN "APPLICATION STARTING..."
Anyone using lirc (Linux infrared remote control) and got a Windows or Android program to control it through the network?
I did not find any that actually worked so I started my own yesterday.
The communication with lirc is surprisingly easy.
My next step is parsing the remote configuration files from lirc.
After that I need to get the GUI look better.1
You finally get the Jenkins configuration correct, then this message appears:
stderr: fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/someuser/...': Could not resolve host: github.com
I've spent two days of holiday to setup CircleCI. And I can't **believe** how hard they make such an essential service. I've uploaded 16 commits to Github just to fix the configuration. And what's the best part? It still doesn't work! The configuration reference is useless.
*looks at CircleCI*
Oh what's that? They're having a system slowdown? well, GOOD FOR ME... /s
Complete (finished) configuration of an enterprise java web application: pom.xml

Does anyone know of a frontend framework/platform that I can easily couple with my Spring Data REST backend?5
Does someone of you have a minimalistic configuration for php micro-framework laravel/lumen or symfony/skeleton with Apache or nginx?
It is somehow pain in the ass to put up a running docker container for this kind of projects :/1
Yesterday when I came into the office my laptop (in a workstation) could not connect to the internet because of bad ip config. The auto configuration just didn't work...
Solved the problem by opening the laptop-lid for about a second, just wtf
I'm looking for a good cloud based python IDE. Let's hear suggestions...
My employer provides me with a MacBook to use at work, however they use a custom OS X image that has whatever security configuration they decided was essential. Something about the configuration prevents me from running third party Python packages.
During those times that I'm "waiting for work things to compile", I'd love to tinker with a little Python project I'm messing with. Does anyone have any suggestions on cloud based IDEs for Python?
Yes I've Googled it, plenty of results. But anyone have suggestions based on their own user experience?
Thanks ahead of time!6
I have just allowed '*' on the rack-cors host configuration. Yiiiiihhhhaaaaa.. no cors problems on Rails again.
But hackers will go fuck my api.
RubyGems had to have SSL configuration errors for right when I'm working on a demo rails project for a firm 🙃🙃🙃 Got it working, but still
I was thinking about a cli tool, involving sending emails through smtp because its purpose.
I was very happy finding out that Mozilla with the ISPDB offered a large list of configuration parameteres for various email provider, but I noticed that its not updated.
Any tips is welcomed6
Was generating a JSON based config manually to be used by a script another dev wrote - only to be criticized for using the text editors built in formatter. Evidently lining up the colon separating key value pairs is a thing.
If readability was so important to you why the fuck did you decide on using JSON as a configuration format? Especially when you could have gone with YAML or better yet INI (flat key/value pairs) style config.
I need to integrate ChargeBee in our product.
They have .Net lib……… Based on fucking static config. Well, I’ll add 1 week to due date for rewriting their lib….
How can they even publicly suggest use of static configuration?
I didn’t even start this project and I feel that it will be one of most painful integrations I’ve done.
When your replacement that your training didn't understand configuration management and just makes changes on one server instead of making a change set and deploying it to all the servers 😭
What is the best way to set up two monitors? Every single configuration I try, I end up having to turn my head left/right on such a regular basis that I actually get a sore neck. :(11
I installed arch on a 2012 MacBook pro today, that was fun, learned a lot more about Linux. Now, I don't know which DE to use.
I would use KDE, but last time I used it(recently) it reset the desktop configuration upon every boot, wiping panels and stuff. I'm sick of GNOME and Cinnamon, and XFCE is eh. Maybe i3?
