Everyone here ranting about a fucking missing semicolon. I can't remember the last time a missing semicolon was the issue...
You wanna know what's REALLY BALL-BUSTING????
WHEN THE FUCKING 10 y/o LEGACY CODEBASE, CODED BY FUCKING PHP WORDPRESS SCRIPTERS WHO THOUGHT THEY COULD BUILD AN ENTERPRISE SHIT CAUSE ZF2 "LOOKS EASY" AND THEN FILL IT UP WITH SPAGHETTI, IS SO BAD WRITTEN THAT IN ORDER FOR THE PAGE TO RENDER YOU ACTUALLY ****HAVE**** TO DISABLE ERROR REPORTING SO WHENEVER A FUCKING ERROR HAPPENS ON THE TEMPLATE RENDER COMPONENT OF ZEND FRAMESHIT 2, YOU'RE LEFT WITH A FUCKING BLANK PAGE AND NOTHING IS LOGGED TO THE LOG FILE, SO YOUR ONLY OPTION IS DIE() DEBUGGING LINE BY LINE ON THE 1300 LINES PHTML FUCKFEST OF A VIEW THEY HAVE.
MISSING SEMICOLON? YES PLEASE, GIVE ME MORE OF THAT SHIT39
Coding Teacher: "you'll need your laptops for the exam. To prevent you from cheating I'll disable the network now"
...pulls out the network cable on his machine...
"okay you can start now"
So I learned something today. Always disable guest sessions in your Linux machine in a work environment.
Walked away from my pc to talk to a fellow Linux engineer.
Came back to a screen with pornhub and porn playing.
"wait how the hell? I locked my pc...?!?"
"ever heard of guest sessions mate? 😆"
*silently disables guest sessions*
Well okay learned that one the hard way 😅30
"Please disable adblock to support us"
*Me pauses adblock feeling sorry*
Fucking video ad starts playing in the middle of the page/article18
"U must disable adblock to use this site"
Ok adblock disabled
"CLICK HERE TO FUCK THIS FUCKIN HOT HENTAI BITCH IN THE PUSSY WITH HER BIG FUCKIN JUICY TITS AND BIG ASS AND EXPERIENCE THE BEST SEX VIRTUAL GAME OF YOUR LIFE IN THIS AD"20
I just saw a website that hid the login and sign up buttons while ad block was enabled. No popups or anything asking me to disable the ad block.
Well played developer, well played.6
Customer: ... and can you also disable right-click to prevent our website's content from being copied?
Client : Can you make some adblock?
Me : Why? There is a lot of good things already...
C : I mean... Listen carefully.
M : ok
C: i have some google ads and user blocks with adblock
M : yeah, that is normal
C : so i implemented adblock blocker which blocks adblock so that i can show the webpage plus ads when the user disables adblock.
M : i bet users hate that.
C : yeah, so users found out a way to disable adblock blocker which disables adblock blocker which i implemented to show the ads! So i cant earn revenue..
M : so what?
C : Can you make ad block block block block?
M : Sure. How much will you give me ?
C : 20 to 30 dollars
M : great ( the most generous client ever seen)
*couple of years later*
Client : can you make ad block block block block block block block block block block?
Me : i cant understand
C : count the number of block
If there is odd number of block i means to block ads.
If there is even number of block ads, it means to show ads making user to disable ads.
M : so just tldr your request this time
C : even number
M : ok how much will you pay
C : 20 to 30 dollars
C : can you..
M : offline
Who in the fucking world made ads, made adblock and made adblock block?15
Codacy is cool!
It gives my code a grade. So it's like school and university, but much easier since I can just disable all the warnings and get an A.5
So my cousin approaches me with his Android phone and, with a worried tone, says:
- "But... is it true that if you enable the developer mode you can get arrested?"
- "What? No. Why?"
- "Because this screen says so. I once enabled them out of curiosity but then I couldn't disable it so I had to reset the phone."
Turns out that, in Italian, "arrest" is a synonym of "halt". The message says "these settings can cause the _arrest_ or malfunctioning of the device"
Couldn't stop laughing 😂18
No I will not disable my AdBlocker to view your content.
I'll just disable JS in browser.
Person: Your website doesn't work.
Person: Nothing happens when I click.
Person: Yeah, sounds shady.6
"hello to continue using our site you **********🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥MUST🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥*********** disable adblock"
This is not really a rant, but...dude.
I was browsing github for a suitable library when i found a test repo of someone. A script inside and at the top he wrote his authentication token. I first thought it was a placeholder or an example or a test he used. No. I entered the token and could control his instance of the app. I sent him a message to disable this token.8
Security tester: Injects XSS into a rich text editor and flags it for a vulnerability.
"Oh that's fine, let's just disable right click on our page so no one can inspect the page and inject anything."
My boss ladies and gentlemen.9
So what does everyone think about unit tests, do you do it?
My own experience is I've seen people on my current team disable failing tests...12
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
When you receive a new task to disable a feature that hasn’t been used for months and deploy the changes to production, the last thing you expect is:
> deployment successful
> 5 seconds pass
> you got mail
> why does this no work anymore
Are you fucking kidding me!1
Disabling pasting into a password field in 2020 with password managers, is retarded. That's it that's the rant. Doesn't matter if you think password managers are good or not. Its still retarded that there's a 40 something year old dumbfuck manager who told a web designer at EA to disable pasting into a fucking password field because he was dumb enough to think it stopped hackers or some shit like that.19
1. Unlimited money on bank account

Drop ur file here to convert it to another file type

Have u guys ever whipped ur dick out and smacked the monitor with ur dick with hope that ur dick smack will transmit the smack into the website across their face9

Me : *Logs in to Microsoft account to delete account*
MS: Eeeeeeeee, Add a recovery email or a number!!
Me: Wth! I want to delete my account, why would I give details of one more account.
*sees there is no skip button*
*Opens temp mail and gives temp email*
MS: Eeeeee, Now add recovery phone number!!!
Me: What the actual fuck!! No!
*Refreshes and its gone*
Me : *clicks on delete account*
MS: Eeeeee, we are sad , you will loose all data. also your synced device won't start unless you set 'reset protection' to 'disable'.
Me: Hmmmm, deceptive, how do I disable this reset protection.
MS: click here : link
Me: *Clicks to open devices, there is no fucking option called reset protection*
*Dafuq!! You wanna get complicated? Ok! Fine!! Get this now!
*Removes the account from every fucking thing from my system, one drive, store and what not*
*Disable this shit now*
MS: ok, disabling, please check the security code on your temp email!
Me: Glad I didn't close the temp email tab, here, do your shit now!
MS: Are you sure?
MS: Really sure?
Me: ..... Yes
MS: We have flagged for deletion, but if you want to activate back click on the only button we show you on the entire screen.
Me: I know these games of yours. They stand no chance in front of my awareness!!

It's almost 10 pm and I still didn't do any homework. I guess I'm going to disable devRant using clearlock again. :(6
- Google: Can I track you? You'd get this and that and much more if you allow me to.
- Microsoft: I will track you. Disable half of my settings if you do not want to be tracked.
- FB: I do NOT track you7
First time I've seen an app which willingly, intelligently, and sensibly turns off its own daily notifications after I never used their app for many many weeks.
Props to the devs for taking into account people like me,who are just too lazy to disable an app's notifications. Also Enki is absolutely incredible for devs so go check it out :D13
This is simply beautiful. Visualized sorting algorithms using colors.
Just discovered it on twitter (@galka_max)
If you have capped mobile data, search for WiFi first. Could be pretty much data...
Watch them here:
The videos and gifs pretty much disable any compression technique.
Attached is their merge sort example heavily compressed from 16 to 5 megabytes to fit devRant's limits...3
I hate windows. Today I opened nvidia geforce experience and in the list of my games at the end there was a new game: "Minecraft: windows 10 edition", WTF???, I never installed it! Like always a google search saved me: After last updates windows will install suggested apps WITHOUT your permission. And to disable this you must edit a key in regedit. Not even a switch in system settings! Microsoft wtf are you doing?47
Almost smashed my keyboard out of anger when my app was taking over 30 mins to launch ,only to realize I had forgot to disable a breakpoint.

Crappy website: *adblock pls disable*
FUCK JUST LET ME BROWSE15
Client initially requested the Wordpress server to have an easy one click way to restore from previous backups.
After setting up the auto weekly backup feature in Digital Ocean, the client wants to disable it because of the extra $1 cost it added to their $5/month hosting plan... 😒10
Marketing once asked if we can add functionality to the site that would disable the back and close button on a browser...yeah9
Please disable adblock before entering this page
*opens page source*
Yeah I guess you could call me a hacker3
Firefox: click on the address bar and now you can select something or start typing or move the cursor left/right, works great.
Chromium (because fuck chrome):click in the address bar and THE ENTIRE URL GETS/BECOMES SELECTED. Wanna type something? Sure, go ahead, but FIRST click somewhere else or move the cursor because otherwise the entire url is fucking gone.
Maybe there's a way to disable this behavior but boy does it annoy the living fuck out of me!15
Dev(null networking knowledge): -"i've already deployed the web but it isn't up."
Boss(strong networking skills): Found port 80 blocked.
-Option A: open port 80.
-Option B: disable firewall.
Choose option B.
Why nobody uses public/private key authentication for ssh and disable password auth?
Am I the only one around here doing this?15
Tech support: we need to install backup software on your laptops.
Devs: what for?
TS: to backup all your important files, like word docs, excels, etc.
Devs: we don't use those. everything is on git/confluence/etc
TS: my boss told me to install it everywhere, so I have to do it.
Devs: well just disable it. uses too much tam, disk time and such
So he installed it on each laptop separately, took half a day, then we just disabled it and proceeded with our tasks. Now we get a question every other week why nothing is being synced from our computers. "We paid for the system and we want you to use it".
Me: ya hi, we integrated with your API and I'm receiving error x
Provider: ok we'll disable validation, plz check
Me: ya it works, what's the problem? I used a GUID for id and I'm sure it's unique, here is URL and request body
Provider: you have something wrong in your implementation. Fix it and it will work
Me: aaand what's the wrong part of my implementation?
Provider: id is not unique, fix it. *Hangs up*
I sometimes sit and wonder, how and why does this kind of people get hired, FOR FUCK SAKE YOU ARE THE PROVIDER AND YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG!
fucking useless ...7
A client asked us today to disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 across their servers.
Its not often that I say this. But this makes me proud. It's a good client. Going with the changin times. I wish all clients were like this one.
RIP TLS 1.0/1.1, took you long enough.2
Damn, credit cards are so fucking secure these days that you hardly can BUY shit with them!
I need some special electronics that I only can get from a vendor in the US, which is overseas. Click click, buy, done. Well no, credit card refused. WTF? Click retry link. No, still refused. FUCK.
Called up the 24/7 hotline of my CC company. Oh yeah, that got blocked by the security system, somehow. We disable that for 20 minutes, just retry. Clicked retry link at the vendor. No failure mail. Hmmm, too good to be true?! Called up the electronics vendor. Yeah should work, stuff is in the warehouse stage. 40 minutes later: credit card declined. FUCK.
Called up the CC company again. Ok, disable blocker for one hour. Nice advice from them, tell the vendor it's only 45 minutes so that there's some buffer. Clicked retry link at the vendor and called them up to make sure that they retry before the time runs out.
LO AND BEHOLD, I could finally pay the shit!!8
Fuck you Xiaomi for creating MIUI, damn it's so bloated with non-removable adware to the level of extreme annoying. It Keeps popping up ads from creating a Folder to Playing a music.
Look at that screenshot. It even serve an ad in built in cleaner app, like What the fuck man?! For real? I already disable the serve ads option. But it keeps turning on.
I even messing with the Permission settings, doesn't even help.
I REALLY WANT TO MOVE TO LINEAGE OS SO BAD, but the warranty is on duration. I don't want to void it.
God, give me a patience for another 7 month.24
Biggest distraction while coding?
When a colleague (or even worst, your boss) decide to staring at your monitor...
I don't know you guys, but I suddenly become disable and not capable of using a keyboard.
Leave me f*king alone!!!3
Skynet is already here! They just call it windows update.... This shit can force itself through any number of times I say DISABLE AUTO FUCKING UPDATES.9
I just had to disable verbose boot on my Linux netbook because some guy at the airport freaked out when he saw it... guess it's leafpad instead of Vim on the plane.5
So, I need to... enable cookies to... disable cookies? Did I get that right?
(wired[.]com btw. My steadily rising adblocker-counter should have made me leave that pile of shit way sooner than I did anyway)7
Someone forgot to disable escaping in the footer on Netflix :P
thought I'd type:netstat -atn on my server and the result was a bit scary, found a Russian IP address with state of: FIN_WAIT1
Either Fail2ban was closing his connection or that dude was able to access my server :/
and found this for his IP: Failed password for root from ----- port 37635 ssh2
I hope I'm still safe :)
Instantly disable password login and make it only SSH
but now I need to carry my SSH keys or else I'm blocked out lol9
!rant but nightly thoughts about wrecking clients that won't pay
If you're building something for a client for money, think of a killswitch.
If it requires internet anyway and you have a webserver, do something similar to what the killswitch of WannaCrypt was (but rather checking for a file on the webserver for existing/non-existing). If the client won't pay, kill the application. If the client pays, maybe even deliver a version without killswitch later (as a "bugfix")
If it is some offline project, you can check for a date (payment due date?) and also check for date/time manipulation on the system itself, and disable the killswitch via a "bugfix" version later just like above.
If clients pay, they don't have trouble. Else, they do.8
I wish that there was a Developer Options for our brains so that we can enableand disable things like "Hearing: On/Off". 😂14
Google: hey website owner, use link rel preload for images loaded by CSS to reduce roundtrip delays. Chrome supports that, Safari also, and even Edge does.
Mozilla: we had some bug with preload back in FF 57 and our solution since has just been to disable preload per default. Done. Who would care about loading speed?
Also Mozilla: we have no idea why our market share has been plunging. Google is evil.9
Windows is fucking amazing... Tried to disable and enable my audio drivers, prompted me to restart, i pressed cancel, fucker still did a restart. Best part is it started to do updates... For fucking 20 minutes until i forced it to shut down. After it turned on i didnt have any audio, enabled it and woo.. Another restar that wantwd to update...
Also happy birthday to devrant and to me5
it can be the most interesting article in the world, but if you ask me to confirm cookies, to enable notifications and to disable my adblock or subscribe to your aWeSoMe newsletter at the same time I'm not interested in spending any more time on your site
oh and also, FUCK YOU, return your degree, resign and FUCK OFF2
Best part of the site honestly1
Beginning Open Beta testing for a chatbot in a thursday
Friend: What the fuck are these inputs?

Friend: Good fucking lord I was right to disable unsupervised learning
Me:Now you know1
You stupid shit jerk fucks.
Your request to disable the coming soon mode was hours ago. Of course google will show you coming soon text when you searched for it. It is not like google is under my arse or something.
And what do you mean it is not showing up on YAHOO!
Who the hell is still using YAHOO! ?
And that YAHOO! showed me that coming soon text result just like GOOGLE when I tried. So why is it not showing that to you? Oh right, maybe because you are old and stupid.
Today is already busy enough with packing our stuffs, stop giving us stupid tasks to fix.1
I dont hate PHP, but I do hate when lazy admins do stupid things.
Why can't the PHP-maintainers do a proper website? Why the fuck can't I subscribe to mailing lists?
Well, it seems like when I do a request, the webserver sends a email with MY EMAIL. And guess what, the listserver REJECTS it because it fails DMARC.
They also refer to the manpage of ezman, but they have disable ALL the functions there too.
What kind of retards is doing that shit. I completely understand why people hate on PHP now.6
Clicking "share" on directory in Windows Explorer, digging through config panel, fidgeting with network discovery options, toggling password protection, digging through account management, jumping over a chair 3 times to channel my inner Bill Gates, checking directory permissions, sacrificing 7 virgin unicorns, go into lusrmgr.msc, curse various gods, install CIFS1.0 protocol, reboot computer, disable encryption, checking registry, trying to summon Steve Ballmer using the blood of a bald goat and sweat-scented candles... 5 hours.
Install Ubuntu on spare SSD, mount Windows NTFS drive, start SMB daemon and set up samba users... 15 minutes.13
Definitely a rant.
I mean you've gotta love how samsung does not allow you to remove facebook and its derivates: insta, whatsapp and some other junk. Yeah, it allows you to "disable" them. But today I found whatsapp running and consuming >50M of storage even though it was DISABLED
precious, ain't it..? Facebook is a system app.
Where the fuck my privacy go?
I'm paying you to listen to music or watch films, I don't want you to create a damm profile my taste or "learn" what might like.
If it was a free service, fine, I'd understand, but I am fucking pying you. I should have the option to completely disable your arse sniffing software.
I know some of them provide a "private mode", but I want that to be the default, I am paying for the god damn service :/6
Please Google, allow us to disable that retarded Google translate thing you've got going on the play store.
Seriously, 90% of the apps' short description are absolutely unreadable because they insist on translating it to my device's language even if no translating is available.
I know it's probably useful to some people (the ones who don't understand English but somehow understand the human language equivalent of spaghetti-code, which I suspect is not many), but this needs to be disable-able, it makes the experience of discovering apps extremely awkward.7
Email: "We just launched our new web interface! It's so much easier to use, and should make life a lot easier for our users."
Me: Oh good this thing has been unusable since I've been working here. How do I get on the new version? Better read on...
"Download this PDF for more information!"
In the (20 page) PDF: "Email this email@example.com to get the URL!"
email: "Thank you for emailing us, you username is benoliver999, your password is 'passow0rd' and the url is in this attached PDF
god help me
(50 page) PDF: "Remember to disable pop up blocker, ad-block and to install Flash"
Today I have started building my own version of this product so we can stop using these idiots.
As an aside, the username 'admin' also had a password of 'passow0rd'...4
No you stupid website, I will not disable my ad blocker for you. I am just going to leave to another website. It's not like I can go to the next search result.1
Best AppStore changlog I’ve read all week:
“Temporarily disable sending usage statistics data”
Why? What happened! I must know more!2
Has any of your clients asked you to disable inspect element and right click on webpages to protect their COPYRIGHT images from being downloaded...19
Our team is developing a online e-commerce application. Since the owner uses Last Pass and doesn't like the extension icon in input fields, he asks the developer team to install the extension and ensure Last Pass was disabled for all input fields, password and usernames included, across the site. It was unacceptable to ask him to disable it though the extension menu.6
We should disable the “verify that you are a human” captcha for a day and see if aliens try to contact us via internet.3
Best thing to do when you're having a bad day:
> Post a video on YouTube telling people that you're developing a machine learning algorithm for drones to identify obstacles.
> Show them a basic HTML code on your computer screen.
> Disable the comments4
Fuck Android Oreo and everyone who thought that the following ideas are useful:
- xy app is running in the background notification, which can't be disabled
- xy app is overlaying other apps, click here if you wish to disable it. But you can't disable the notification, you can only disable the app.
- the un-zeroable data limit. It can't be disabled, you can only set it to a retarded high number to avoid annoying notifications
Go suck a veiny one Android devs. Fucking cunt faces.13
Quote: "It's both insecure and resource intensive"
Then he went that only if the script is free he would see what it is to run it.
He also said that he would never allow any js file that comes from google even jquery...
I wouldn't live in an isolated world just to be 100% secure, I want my good user experience xD11
Windows, if you can't even do as much as mounting network shares *after* the network comes up, don't you fucking dare to tell me that I can't disable my firewall. Some people may actually know what they're doing and maintain that elsewhere, you know?5
Lenovo, you dumb fuck cunts.
How the fuck did you think it might be okay to ship a laptop with a BROKEN FUCKING WLAN DRIVER??????
This piece of shit doesn't even have RJ45 anymore.
And also who shit in your empty cavities where your brains should be when you thought it was a good thing to disable booting from anything but the main windows partition? My Mint installer stick works on any and everything I have ever tried him with except for this.3
Disable Windows 10 Auto Updates
1. Run gpedit.msc
2. Set "notify for download and notify for install" according to this screenshot http://i.imgur.com/VjpeDHWh.jpg
3. You will still get an annoying popup saying "get updates" but windows will never autoinstall them and autorestart your machine.13
Java dev here. I rewrote an app and replaced a system call to ssh with a modern jaxrs post for uploading a file and (new) some additional data.
I even used a stream.
1 hour in production, first client doesn't get his file. Log says OutOfMemoryError: heap.
Me: wtf? I already use streams.
Looking at the Jersey library. Docs say nothing. An issue from 2013 says: oh if you silly don't use the Apache httpclient addon, we disable chunking and buffer the whole body, because our tests fail with the jdk included http client otherwise.
No warning in the logs. Thank you soooooo much! Who could have known?4
Old rant here. Took place ~2 years ago and just remembered it recently:
For some reason our company decided to disable incognito mode in Chrome... Wtf, who comes up with that shit?!
Our team has different certificates to test our application and therefore the private mode comes in quite useful. Otherwise you would need to close and reopen all browser instances again.
At least, after a shitstorm from various teams they unblocked incognito again.6
When you keep getting errors even though you're sure that you fixed the problem. Then you realise Chrome still uses the cached JS, no matter how many times you press CTRL + F5. Conclusion: disable the cache in the Dev panel.
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY YOU FUCKING SPYING SNEAKY LITTLE CUNTS?!?
This is the Calendar app that comes with my phone. Can't disable, uninstall, or change these slightly suspicious permissions. FUCK MY LIFE12
Let's make a WPF apllication... They said.
Let's add a ScrollViewer... They said.
Let's put a DataGrid inside the ScrollViewer... They said.
Let's disable scrollwheel on the DataGrid... They said.
Let's add a UserControl to a ColumnTemplate in the DataGrid... They said.
Let'a put a ComboBox with a custom template inside the UserControl... They said.
Now let's hope nobody tries to use the scrollwheel on the ComboBox.
Now I have to convince somebody that it's pretty much impossible to enable scrollwheel on the ComboBox.4
Google Chrome scans private files on the computer without mentioning the user and without the possibility do disable this "feature". Google never announced this anywhere.
Someone (Kelly Shortridge, @swagitda_ on Twitter) found this randomly and confronted Google. It answered that this was only an AV scan and wasn't done more than once a week.
Well, THAT'S why I use Firefox. I don't trust Google, and again and again it gives more and more reasons for this mistrust.7
AMAZING MIDNIGHT BREAKTHROUGH!!!
In Android studio if u disable the enable frame check box of the avd and select the graphics option to hardware the avd works a bit faster...even in a system with 4gb ram 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌12
Google changed the android build system in android 7.0 to ninja but it was at least possible to disable it.
But android 8.0 is using it by default and it is not possible to disable it.
So what that means ?
Is that if you are trying to bring Oreo to older device like me you will have totally broken build order and that means that stuff that requieres some shit will not be able to compile since the shit is not compiled before.
SO NINJA FUCKKKKKKKKKK YOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!
Make build system was fucking awesome. Yeah sure sometimes slow but it did the job perfectly but noooooooooo google must use the most latest shit and break every piece of android. Fuck it i need to rewrite my entire custombootimg.mk file since ninja broke it yayyyyy.
AGAIN FUCK YOU NINJAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.4
I noticed you can no longer uninstall Facebook apps from Samsung phones, only disable. Figured I would give 'disable' a try and see what it means. Apparently it means the icon will be gone but I will still get notifications, which I can click on the open the app. Whoever made this deal with Facebook should be fired from a mossy cannon using to much gunpowder.12
Disable email notifications.
Checking email only 3-4 times during the day saves a lot of concentration.
Best way to get rid of popups and Adblock-blockers:
Tested working with Forbes.8
Introducing. Snapchat privacy invasion. You can see where your added friends are if they do not disable it (enable ghost mode).
Good job :)5
When your work alarm goes off on a Bank Holiday Monday because Apple still dont have a feature to disable alarms on Bank Holidays. Cheers Tim.2
This is fucking rediculous.
A client wanted me to make them a image download resistant galary.
They said they had seen some other site that is "impossible" to download pictures from. This just is not true, they were overlaying transparent images over the images.
Two days after I do that, set up everything on their server, and disable hotlinking in their CloudFlare, without being contacted at all, I've received a not-as-described PayPal dispute.
They said someone downloaded their picture and that I said it would be impossible.
How is this possible? The fuck PayPal? I'm going to lose this damn dispute which was gonna pay half of my rent.11
Apparently DELETE and... most of the HTTP verbs are disabled by default in IIS (ASP/ MVC/ Microsoft server software)
Am I wrong in saying that's fucking bullshit?!
Why make an HTTP serving environment with a massive array of tools to help you do everything you need in the web environment... And then DISABLE some of the web protocol??? What???
Not even the obscure verbs. DELETE. Is microsoft the type of bitch to delete using a GET request?? I bet the send passwords as get parameters.8
To fellow OnePlus users:
If you're using OxygenOS (maybe even the preinstalled Cyanogenmod of the OP1), OnePlus is spying on you with a very creepy level of detail.

I'm on windows 10 and I want to access the sound settings window to disable a speaker. I press the win key and as I start typing "sound" the first result that pops up is "voice" settings. So accurate. Thanks Cortana, very cool!8
The state of modern information. Top post: based on feelings, completely uninformative.
Second, almost half as upvoted: actual answer to question (Which was "Why don't Presidential debates disable the candidates' microphones while it's not their turn to speak?").
No wonder people don't have a clue what they're going to spew when they open their mouth.
Finally convinced the IT at my University to disable their badly-deployed HTTPS inspection.
So bad even the employee laptops in the domain didn't have the certificate (and the students got it on Google Drive a week later).
I feel great.1
So Chrome 63 automatically forces https to anyone working with a domain name finishing with ".dev". Thank you a lot, I was planning on loosing 4 hours of my time figuring this out.6
The fucking defective Caps Lock on Apple keyboards drives me fucking ballistic!
WHY would they ever think it would be a good idea to introduce a minimum press time for a key?!?
EVERY. FUCKING. TIME. I use the damn thing it inevitably fails and I have to backspace, delete the non-caps text I just entered after HITTING THE FUCKING CAPS LOCK KEY, tap the damn thing again (harder this time) and try again. It usually takes 2 or 3 tries before it actually catches. I'm sorry, but training myself to type slower is not as easy as you think!
Who the fuck thought up this nonsensical bullshit?? And who the fuck is going around accidentally tapping their caps lock key to the point where such a delay would be needed?? Do you not know where your own fingers are??
Seriously, all this does is penalize fast typists and people who actually want to USE the caps lock key for what it was meant for.
I swear to god this one little thing pisses me off SO much. And what's worse is they don't even give you an option to disable it, AND it's bloody fucking impossible to disable yourself even through the terminal.
(Also, typing this rant with so many caps was probably not as cathartic as I was going for!) 😂9
I had to disable my notifications for devRant because it was taking me away from paying attention to my children.
Yep, today was a Monday. Had a request to truncate some tables. Set up a script to disable constraints, truncate, and re-enable constraint. It ran flawlessly. Too bad I ran against the wrong schema, though. Ran it against a dev schema instead of the requested itest schema, because the dev schema was stuck in my head. Well, I guess I tested it in dev. Against some developers schema. But, hey, it worked flawlessly. Because, you know, when you are pointing at the wrong place, it will always work. Every time.3
Is there a way to disable the social media buttons and if not could that be built in?
I keep pressing the buttons by accident when I move my finger to the back button. And I cannot even use them because I dont have an account at those platforms.18
So, this is my co-workers hosting websites: They login as root, chmod -R 777 the entire fucking public_html, disable SELinux, use unsecured FTP, and then they are surprised all sites on that server are infected with some sort of crazy virus6
This is some real shady shit...
I was trying to set my office 365 account we got from school to gmail in my phone and this is what it wants to be able to do. In summary (Dutch screenshots):
- It can disable important safety features,
- Lock me out of my phone at any moment,
- Encrypt all data,
- Or just erase all of it
- And watch me while they do it
Some people in the company (3000+ people) didn't know how to use static variables (c#) in a thread-safe manner which resulted in production problems.
Only possible way to solve this in management's mind?:
Disable the usage of not read-only static variables via quality control...1
I just woke up this morning to an email saying that someone from chile logged into my instagram account and I'm not actually what set me of the most.
The fact that my password was leaked, the fact I literally never got notified that I had a Instagram account I never wanted or the you have to disable most privacy settings, just to reset your password.
Like holy fuck, I disabled all options I could find on firefox concerning privacy/tracking and it still tells me I should disable some privacy settings.
So I enabled chrome again (fucking system app) and it worked on first try. Just as expected...
Anyway, fuck instagram and thank you dear hacker for telling me that I had a worthless to delete.5
Fuck you people who don't write int in front of function and use implicit declaration to their advantage. FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU.
They even disable the implicit declaration error. FUCK YOU.6
I love linters and all. They’re great for maintaining good practice. But sometimes they’re a little too aggressive, and when the rules are being imported from elsewhere, I am not sure how to temporarily disable them.
This is especially frustrating when the linter decides it will break your shit instantly, so I found it easier to just call a method and remove it when the functionality is built.
Right now there’s at least 4 “this.stopBitchingAbout([all, the, things])” in my code.11

I have been playing around with coinhive because I really like it's concept. Pretty cool so far.
Does anyone here have experience with it? What are your thoughts?
Also.. why can't pihole let me whitelist wildcard domains?? I hate having to disable my DNS server every time I want to test the miner.. I guess I will just have to make a pihole / ftl plugin for it..5
I went to uni for CompSci with knowing no prior knowledge.
In my first year of uni I created a DigitalOcean droplet to host an SQL server. I didn't change the root password or disable password login out of convenience and as I didn't think anyone would be able to find the IP address to be able to hack it.
Within 3 hours DigitalOcean had locked my account for using my droplet to send DDoS attacks. Support contacted me to ask what was going on. I knew nothing at the time so I was a bit 🤷♂️.
And that's when I learned the importance of changing your root password.
Decided to install new CentOS to prepare for Red Hat exams.
a) had to disable VirtualBox Audio and USB otherwise it got stuck during boot (lvm2 masking did not help)
b) First command - "dnf update". Crashed in middle of the process and completely screwed dnf/yum (TWICE!). Went through just fine when executed from runlevel 3.
So far it held up to the name Enterprise Linux because this is the exact out of box clusterfuck I would expect from a corporate.4
Jesus, Python. Hash randomization?! I now have non-deterministic fucking behaviour _that I cannot disable within the python script_.
Oh, we have a crafted-input DoS scenario. What will we do? Make an interface to allow programs to supply their own hash function perhaps? No! That wouldn't break reproducibility!
Floating point addition is not commutative? Summing over float values in a set may give randomly different answers? Who cares? It's not like anyone is using python in science or anything.83
How to disable "New comments on a rant you commented on!" notifs?
As a true narcisist, We are not interested in people's comments as long as they aren't praising Us and Our ingenious words. As all comments mentioning Us are also praising Us, only showing notifications for comments that mention Us would be fine.9
Why the hell must Microsoft always be dickhead about the telemetry.
Take one beautiful NET.CORE. I make an app for myself, deploy it only to find out that those data-hungry arses have built-in default enabled telemetry and the only way to disable it is to set one dick-long env. variable:
No way to exclude it completely, you have to sweat blood everywhere it runs.
Consent ? Hardly, just small line during installation...
I swear everything MS touches turns into spyware...1
I find it funny that as soon as I disable password authentication on my server and enable key auth then all of the bots spamming my server with incorrect login requests instantly stop when they realise that they aren’t getting through any time soon. Also don’t ask why I don’t have Fail2Ban and a firewall set up.5
Just got a new car with a 7" touchscreen and an HDMI interface that is extremely easy to disable the safety features on... Then an idea immediately hits me, a development board, a SIM card module, and I have dedicated Spotify, and navigation. How cool is that!?8
Those fuckers at google wants to have you pay to disable ads over the internet. https://contributor.google.com/v/...
FUCK! Is this how they want to make a trillion dollars?7
C and C++ want people to use them, but make people pay for the standards. Sure, you can download a draft, but it's not guaranteed that's what's in the standard.
What is the point of a standard if you disable people from conforming to it?8
Suggested we set up more formal coding standards even though he was by far the messiest developer...
Then once we did, proceeded to disable linting in almost every file he touched. 😕
Android flow I’ve found(fixed in android 8, working on 7.1.1):
To make app uninstallable by the normal user make the app device administrator, add “android.permission.SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW” to the manifest and make sure it’s not granted by the user.
Now when you try to uninstall the app, it tells you to disable it from device administrators but the device administrator disable dialog is System Window handled by the app itself and if the app has this permission but not granted, settings will crash with SecurityException leaving the app untouched.4
How comes that people can write such fucking shitty code?
Because I mean, why the hell would I want a progress indicator while the form is loading?
Actually, let's just not disable the form while it's loading. Let the user get mad when it's data's overwritten.
And best of all. Let's use inconsistent naming and fucking metadata tables so that we don't have any structure and make queries slow.
Yes. I fucking love incompetent consultants. Fucking love them. Good thing he never got hired...2
Decrypt api responses in an iOS app which my “senior” dev thinks it is more secure to encrypt responses in stead of setting up a proper SSL cert (they use plain http to save money 🙄)
They disable the encryption since it does not function as we wanted and set up SSL instead🙄4
Interesting just went on a small journey without internet connection for a while and first boot was OK on the AMD kernel but when i started the laptop second time it had a start job running and had to reset bios again so i could boot. IDK but this is getting really fucking weird if you ask me. I think it works wih internet but when using it without internet then it has start job running for it. Weird.
Maybe i will just disable haveged and use some other shit to update time for me. Any reccomendation on what to use on Arch to update time with internet ?
The GNOME way seems to be causing the issue. Once i disable it from GNOME its OK.11

Not being able to persuade the client that storing plain text passwords so that they can send them to their users when they forget them is not the best way to handle user accounts.
This happened in 2012 but it still hunts me like it was yesterday.
Before you all demand to ban me from devRant, I’d like to say that we impelemented an alternative (unpaid!) for this, but were requested to disable it.3
Phone always on silent. And disable notifications on most apps.
Have been using a Pebble Time for a while and can't even remember the last time my phone has been ringing or beeping.
Sadly Pebble is no more 😧3
Was using webstorm and it kept on hanging lately. Just started using Atom, it's so cool. Webstorm has more features but if you want one in atom you can install a pakage, disable/ uninstall if not needed.5
You know what I really like? When apps override the scrolling behaviour...

TL;DR: Stop. Hating. On. Ads. Here are 5 reasons why:
1. "No one likes ads"
I love seeing *good* ads before I watch a YouTube video. Or I looked up videos that YT recommended because they sounded fun and they were fun:
- Coke - Hey Brother is an amazing and touching short film
- Fressnapf (="food bowl") had an incredibly enjoyable "things you didn't know about cats" video I clicked on purpose and it was good.
- I found JetBrains through ads (free for me, student perks. But tbh I use atom)
and I could name more.
2. What are the alternatives?
I know there are some non-profits and that's cool but you wanna be paid in your job, right? So ads are why Facebook (I know, Facebook isn't enjoyed here but), YouTube, stackoverflow, etc. Wikipedia asks for a few million dollars of donations each year because they don't run ads. Smaller businesses can't do that really. Hell, even codepen has a "sponsored" section. Imagine you would have to pay for all of those services.
isn't a bad thing unless you abuse it. I manipulate you when I say that I love codepen in the same way an ad does. No one forces you to use a product or watch an ad (you can look away and often times skip).
What if everyone did that? Adblock blocks happened a while ago and the war between adblock and ad-senders is still ongoing. The moment you see an ad, you are using/watching etc something which the creators thought is worth making money off. If you don't think so, leave the site. I am an adblock user but if the site politely asks me to disable it and I enjoy the content - I will disable it with pleasure.
5. Targeted ads
Yes. The internet is a huge data-crawling piece of shit. But there are many more questionable or even dangerous ways of data-harvesting online. I am glad to see ads I like and not the ones my sister might like. Some services allow you to disable personalized ads. Or use vpn if you really want to.9
- Install Overwatch via Lutris on Linux.
- Get absolutely terrible performance and rendering bugs.
- Disable DXVK.
- Get slightly better performance (wtf?).
- Still runs at like 20% of potential performance.
- Give up and try to install Windows.
- Windows install fails.
Aaand so I spent my weekend configuring shit instead of relaxing/gaming. Ugh.10

Gamemaker studio 2's 2019 roadmap just got released.. Still no Linux IDE (FFS) but it only took them how many years to realise that not every developer is a malicious cunt and give us the ability to disable to sandbox file system?!
I swear they add and change stuff that is so trivial instead of focusing on the engines major problems and absent features, eg. Can't use SVG graphics, the need to be exported in flash (SWF) because you know, makes sense?17
Mistakenly clicked on some old link in my bookmarks, fell on this. I still don't know what to think!

Do you guys have any issue with Firefox lately?
It's lagging and hanging a lot on my laptop since like two weeks ago.
I usually run like 2 windows with no more than 7 tabs each. So 15 tabs max in total.
The rest of service I run are sublime, terminal, Mailspring on my lubuntu LAMP stack. :(
The latest app I installed and used is Mailspring, so if nobody has similar issue, I'm gonna disable it and test.8
So everyone here has probably seen many posts ranting (or should that be rants posting) about windows updates in the lastest version of Windows. I have seen one too many rants about losing work due to this well it happened to me to. ..almost.
Since I have an editor that saves work automatically I didn't lose anything but just had to restart by applications and set my windows how they were again. It wasn't planned and I had previously manually disabled windows updates but they still ran and rebooted my machine...grrrrr!
Doing some more research I found my previous fix which worked in Windows 10 1511, and 1607 versions (anniversary update and prior) doesn't work in version 1703 or 1709 the Creator's and Fall Creator's updates respectively.
If you have version 1511 or 1607 you can just disable the windows update service and windows store service and appxpackage services to completely stop windows updates and unexpected reboots. I ran it like that for over a year from 2015 well into 2017. After being impressed with the newer Fall Creator's update I decided to manually update to 1703 and then to 1709 which is the latest version.
The problem is, the old disable service fix isn't enough now in these newer versions. To disable updates in the newer versions you have to stop the usoclient which is the update orchestrator. Simply disabling the services doesn't work anymore.
Changing the file permissions of the usoclient will work and stop the scheduled tasks from firing.
Here ya go, no more unscheduled reboots. YOU pick when you want Windows to update:
I get some error when deleting an azure service so I put a support ticket asking for help. Just as I am about to close my computer for the day I receive an email saying:
"Product team will disable the account xxxxx from backend".
The xxxxx is our subscription number. The subscription that hosts not only that service but also production servers and databases, storage accounts containing backups, etc.
I replied to the email so hopefully disaster is avoided otherwise tomorrow wont be a happy day.6
Getting a new laptop tomorrow, and was planing the process of setting it up.
Steps for new windows computer
1. Delete all included software... all of it.. call an exorcist if needed. Cast out the demons. Seriously, fuck you norton, and fuck you mcafee.
2.Use Edge to download ANY other browser.
3.edit system files to disable Edge, because fuck Edge.
4.install linux subsystem.
5.intall linux software like git, and use git to restore rc files.
6.party all night (code)9
Remember how I gushed about one note?
Well I purchased a new laptop today.
Load it up, log in to fucking windows 10.
What do I find in one note?
All my notes from my previous PC.
What did I explicitly fucking disable on my other PC?
Sharing and syncing.
What has obviously been shared and synced anyway, completely ignoring my settings?
My fucking notes in onenote, including some very personal notes on my health and life.
Can anyone else confirm they had the same problem?
I'm interested in pursuing legal action for this bullshit.11
I know, many devs swear on using *NIX based OSes or macOS but really... Windows 10 is very good, never had a single issue or BSOD. If u have issues regarding update reboots then just disable automatic reboots,damn! One single " fuck Windows, killed my workflow cause of updates. Installing Linux know cause I'm too dumb to change a simple setting." >_> and I can play ALL my games... NATIVE!10
Today I finally experienced the power of something I learned in university: propositional and predicate logic.
Many developers I know think that such education is useless. Well, today I have proven that it is very useful. On a day to day basis, working on banking software, complexity in purely logic is very low. However, we have a screen that must show or hide elements based on some input values and conditions associated with certain elements. How hard can that be, right? Well, there are many variables to take into account and as such it's absolutely not trivial.
This screen didn't work properly and maintaining the code is hard as there is a lot of logic to show/hide, enable/disable things and so on. After quite some time and attempts by fellow developers, I decided to refactor the whole thing. I'm responsible for the quality of the software and it was quite degrading, so I had to do something.
In order to get things working properly, I defined collections of constants (ui elements) and predicates. Then, I defined for which element what predicates must be true, in order to hide/show, disable/enable etc. I then translated these predicates into code. And guess what? It works! Of course it works. It's logic. But I'm very pleased I finally could actually use some of all the math I studied!5
Anyone know a good android keyboard for people who don't want any autocorrect?
Gboard has an empty top row wasting screen space if you disable suggestions. AnySoftKeyboard seems pretty slow. At the moment I'm using Chrooma, but its backspace has really annoying bugs.
What I'd really love would be a keyboard with macro functionality and where you could configure your own layout. But I guess that doesn't exist :/16
DevRant-Stats Site Update:

Concept: an app that runs on a smartwatch that activates when you disable an alarm (temporarily, not through the settings) and uses the on board sleep sensors to re-enable the alarm so you dont over sleep. But if you do actually wake up the first time, you dont need to disable a second alarm.
I would love to know if this app already exists or if someone is going to make it6
IT decides to update machine policy today;
Chrome becomes an "officially" allowed program, so they force a homepage, disable all extensions, and disable incognito... Nice.
Postman doesn't work either.3
Spotted a new feature that had just recently being completed: "Disable all Logging due to noise". What.
Us on the Ops team just died a bit inside...
Next time onwards... Please try to solve the problem yourself before writing a bad review... Or you'll get trolled like this guy xD... He didn't know how to disable vibration lol...2
A friend is trying out linux and I am helping him with it. Helped him to install and configure linux on his laptop. Tried several Arch distros and different Ubuntu flavours. But it is not about distros,but about strange glitch...
Imagine, you are having 2 monitors. One is your laptops and second is plugged in via VGA. You're dragging windows from one screen to another, doing you things, etc..
You can see and configure VGA display in display settings and so on.
So situation is exactly the same with my friend, but here comes the plot twist:
There is no monitor connected to VGA.
I can't explain it, but linux is always detecting a non-existent display. So you can drag windows to nowhere. You can see resolution on 2nd monitor and so on. Luckily, you can disable it.
When you write an email to a fellow developer stating that he should disable Instant Run to hopefully get rid of a bug he gets and the developer calls you on phone to ask how he can disable Instant Run and you just want to yell at him "SEARCH IN THE SETTINGS YOU DUMBFUCK!" but you keep it cool and just say "open the settings and search for instant run"
and then you see that he might have trouble finding the build variant settings as well so you tell him where it is and you realize that this fellow developer is not a unique snowflake but the fucking average "skill level" employee in this firm.... Did I tell you that I am looking for another job?
Friendly reminder that if you disable remote content in your email client, the feature that almost every email client allows, there will be NO WAY for all those bloody spammer corporations to know that you even opened the email. I also prefer my emails with no graphics, I find them more beautiful that way.3

Why do you root your phone?
My original reason was to enable things my restrictive carrier prohibited, like tethering. But now that carrier is years behind me. On my previous phone, I rooted to disable onerous pre-installed software. On my current phone, I see no reason to root it at all, except maybe to try out some roms.
How about you?12

So Apple did make iTunes connect better but why the hell would they disable the tab button to move to next text box? I hope its just something wrong on my end or that would be a dumbass move -_-
On a side note, devRant need to have a category for Apple so it makes it easier for at least me to rant about them -_____-3

Mozilla really knows how to nudge one to not use email encryption by default.
Since Thunderbird has native support for OpenPGP encryption, i can only chose to encrypt all or no messages by default. There is no opportunistic mode and there are no per-reciepient encryption preferences. The Enigmail addon had both.
So i obviously have gone for encrypt-by-default.
But since then, whenever i want to send a message to the majority of my contacts, i have to manually disable the encryption or get annoyed by the no-key-found dialog.
I thought, i would get the muscle memory to just disable encryption for recipients for wich i don't expect to have a key.
But they also made the GUI so i have to open a dropdown and then click on the right item to do that. All the items basically look the same, as there is no color coding or specific icon for them. The item labels are also too long for unconscious pattern recognition.
So i didn't got that muscle memory.
I now have turned off encryption by default and will probably forget to enable it for some emails wich i actually could send encrypted...4
And why when I see a question about turning off the update, the answer is always "why you want to disable the update? Its dangerous you know bla bla bla bla"
I dckin KNOW!!! I JUST WANT TO MAKE THIS FUCKIN MACHINE CAN RUN LIKE A NORMAL i7 and 16GB of RAM!!!

Samsung Keyboard is utter shit.
GBoard (Google Keyboard) is like a ray of sunshine in comparison.
The Samsung keyboard actually changes whole words to completely different words. It even replaces words with misspellings. No, these were not words I had misspelled before. Tried to turn off autocorrect and keep suggestions. They are the SAME setting. Like if you are going to make a shitty ass version of the GBoard, at least keep the same ability to tweak settings.
In contrast I installed GBoard and was able to disable JUST autocorrect and keep suggestions.
Just like most Samsung apps Samsung Keyboard is utter shit.
FUCK YOU SAMSUNG!10
WORST UBUNTU RELEASE TO DATE!
Why oh why did they go with /swapfile by default? I was legacy booting with UEFI enabled and it still didn't work! And don't get me started on nouveau (Nvidia OSS).
When I click "use proprietary software" I want the OS to do everything in its power to just work. Disable 3D acceleration if you must - at least boot to a console.
I'm scared to try it on my main desktop now!
I switched to Linux Mint and I'm happy now, I just needed an instant OS that works. 😊8
me: thats not a very good practice but whatever
i smiled because it took me 10 seconds to get the reference1
I don't understand how after decades, people who know what they're doing don't disable automatic updates as one of the first actions on a newly installed windows machine. People moan about it on here like they don't know.5
We heard you like security so we put antivirals in your docker containers despite the fact that we made you have antivirals on your machines running the docker containers.
And we won't allow to use root just in case you want to disable the av. And we don't care you need it for the docker 😂
This is how I was played when wanted to use docker containers to avoid dealing with OPS.
Some time passes, my team is going to have independent cloud infrastructure.

A Twitter API issue is allowing people to (once again) bootloop iPhones and iPads with the text parser. This was just submitted to Twitter's staff, I don't see anyone talking about it yet. Disable notifications or uninstall and use the mobile site.15
I wanted that Makefile to avoid stripping binaries after building them, but there was no clear option for that. I only found this:
STRIP = strip
That tells where to find the executable that does the stripping. I changed it to a no-op executable, like "true".
So now I have
STRIP = true
to disable stripping.11

I got the Aero15. Had to send it in because ctrl+alt+shift+s (IntelliJ Preference menu) and some others critical shortcuts weren't working. Got a reply a week later.
"Thank you for using our service. The explained fault isn't actually a fault. If you want to use that button combination simply remap the FN key. Mind you this will disable any FN key combinations."
"What about all the other combinations?"
"Ok we returned it to the technicians who will do their best to repair it."
I await their response. But seriously, for a company that makes GAMING keyboards this is pretty embarrassing. I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more attention.
Fucking gnome and their stupid fucking alerts. Seemed like an okish desktop, but cosing in vim triggers a metric butt ton of alerts which interrupts my super chill beats. So, ok lets disable them. Oh look there's a toggle.. easy enough. NO because those motherfucking alerts, while now silent, still cut off my music for a couple hundred ms every time they're triggered. Fuck you gnome.7

Look at the balls on their micro cocks. "Heads up". How dare you scare me like that on *my* fucking machine that I paid for, god dammit.
"We're going to make Windows better...". Can it suck my dick after updating? Because I'd like to choke the retard genes out of it.
The only thing that comes close to it is the fucking swiping keyboard that I'm using to type this rant.
I hate devrant''s 2 hours limitation for posting :( atleast give option save as draft or set publish time (even it after two hours just disable the timer for two hour)8
I just got a call from Satya. He informed me that Microsoft has successfully acquired the Linux kernel and all future development will be closed sourced.
Here's a sneak peek of the official announcement:
There will be a newer version released tomorrow that will include the Windows desktop environment as well as patch a critical 0-day security flaw that was recently discovered in all versions of Linux.
To prevent exploitation, we will activate a kill switch which will disable all systems running any flavor of Linux next week.
Thus we advise you upgrade ASAP, existing users can get the latest version online for $500.8
FX [ Gets woken at 3am in the morning by PC turning itself on.. ]
This might solve the issue..
After a bit of googling and investigating, I discovered that:
updateorchestrator - Backup Scan
Was ticked to turn on my PC to do its thing..
Following advice here to install PSTools, I was able to untick the turn on bit, I didn't change anything else.
psexec.exe -i -s %windir%\system32\mmc.exe /s taskschd.msc
Will that fix it ?
And what does 'backup scan' do ?
Just been googling and this might also work:
In case anyone is having the same issue..
So, could this be the phantom windows update thing that happens even though I've tried to turn off all windows updates by every other means ?11
Today Phoronix posted a short article about a (in my opinion cool) new feature I implemented in my file manager (Dolphin). Most of the feedback was positive/constructive criticism but some people attacked me personally because they don't like the feature/think "true" Linux users wouldn't use it.
I gave you something cool for free. Would you please stop bitching about it?
If you don't like it don't use it. You can even disable it if it threatens your ego as a Linux master user5
Latest promoted thread on XDA to make the list:
"how to disable forced encryption".
This is from a place that tries to be innovative. I'm half expecting a thread get promoted with the title "how to give everyone your passwords/identity/credit cards".
Currently working on a GUI config generator using MFC in VS.
Firstly, fuck sake Microsoft. Why can't I just use a normal string? The amount of times I've had to do god awful conversions to/from CString using their numerous typedefs L, _T and don't even get me started on LPCTSTR, LPCWSTR... It's just ugly and tedious. I've gotten used to it and all but still, ugh.
Secondly, some of the functions are just stupid. Want to disable a control? Hmm, we'll there's a function called EnableWindow, but no DisableWindow. How did I do it before? Oh, so to disable the control it's EnableWindow(FALSE). Of course it is, duh. Why am I so stupid?
Let's use the GetWindowText function. Simples. CString something_txt = GetWindowText().
Nope, it takes the CString as a parameter and copies it into that rather than just returning the text. Now one line becomes two. I get that this is a really small semantic thing but it irks me.
I just want to go back to my fedora partition. Wah.
PS: I'm sure there's good reasons for what I'm ranting about, but I really don't care. I just need to rant about my frustrations. 😂1
Btw, does someone know a search engine where I can exclude whole pages easily? Or a browser plugin?
Because I want to get rid of all those 'Disable Adblock' pages for good...6
He keeps the whole team questions on software UI.
- how to do disable the email client from sorting my mails to that folder?
- how to you disable notifications?
- why doesn't this editor have this shortcut?
For goodness sake, you're a developer. Can't even Google?1
Is there any way to disable sites binding the mousewheel (scrolling) event ? Like for example rebinding it to scroll down at the end of window load ? (tamper/greasemonkey)
I am getting furious with all these sites where they will block the whole site to make you agree cookies & gdpr shit.
Removing the foreground/blocking element is sometimes enough but often the remaining site can't be scrolled.
EDIT: Found out you can add links of script that does this to AdBlock:) For example movieinsider has it's "gdpr, cookies & shit" script at the top of head element. Add it and voilá.6
Windows : fuck you i delete your KMS file
Windose : your licence is expiring in 30 days
Me: re apply KMS and disable that fucking useless anti virus
Window just self permit to delete my file with no fucking reason and not notify me in is shiti settings panel1
I used to like apples Autocorrect. I use the english and german keyboard.
but since my main language is english and I only write german when chatting with my family, sometimes I'm too lazy to switch keyboards.
Now the german and english corrections kinda got messed up.
it started to correct my intentions like:
Such - Sich
Nein - Nine
Dich - Dick
Gut - But
Fuck - Duck (don't know where that came from)
which can lead to unfortunate sentences.
So I decided to disable auto correct about a week ago.
What I realized is.. it's fucking impossible to type precise on a fucking smartphone without it.
even this rant took me about 10min to write..5
Just got my new phone today. My old Huawei was acting up, so I replaced it with an island model: an Asus. Man, I have read lots and lots of horror stories about bloatware that came with the previous version of their skin, ZenUI. Their UX people must have been listening, because this phone came with fewer preinstalled apps than any phone I've ever had, and that includes a Nexus 5. And so far the only preinstalled apps I've had to disable are the default keyboard and chrome.
It's as close to AOSP as I've ever had without using a rom. I'm pretty stoked!
I design 3D CAD models in my office system. I need to keep saving the files every few minutes because software licenses are floating and once lost, I may lose data.
But another bigger problem is that we need to disable proxy to connect to VPN and work online. And the proxy always turns itself ON, every few minutes and if by chance you saved the file without turning the proxy OFF. Well then OFF goes all the work since you last saved. Because then CREO just stops responding.2
Does anyone know a good way to use adblock/ublock but configure it to allow ads only on my fav/selected youtube channels?
Because some youtubers deserve it!
...And I‘m too lazy to manually disable my adblock everytime Iwatch some videos of creators I like :/7
nothing personal, but fuck you all who are responsible for these mobile game tutorials where i can't even disable sound until i finish it.2
Made a root only app: enable/disable GPS, mobile data, airplane mode and etc. work on not rooted device(yes all these functions work too).
How: Desktop app which downloads cross-platform ADB drivers, unzips them, executes a few commands, deletes the drivers and voala.
P.S: I use local ADB TCP connection(yeah I ported a part of the drivers for java android) and write_secure_settings granted with 'pm grant'.
And everything is user-friendly with screenshots explaining how to enable ADB and how to click a 2 buttons.3
Want to use Http-VPN. Now I have to use Internet Explorer and Java and have to disable all security on my system. Fml
Many would go to hell, including the Guy who disable right click and save image on Instagram.com
horror stories from my old job: we had to ask to get the internet 'turned on' (of course only for a short period of time), you had to disable loading images, because otherwise you'd have to wait for fucking EVER til you could safely move your mouse and: Google had a massive lag when you scrolled. let me repeat that: GOOGLE. LAGGED. I didn't even know that was fucking possible! and the worst part: my old job was at a software dev company. not a shitty IT department at -I don't know- a bakery?! I mean, wtf?! and it wasn't even a start up. and they still exist! how? why?! I'm still not sure how I managed to work there for five months...1
What a pain it is getting Linux/Arch setup perfectly on a MacBook Pro. Overheating like a mofo. ACPI shitstorm, integrated GPU disabled by default and need a hack to enable it outside of macos, fan control is wack.
Solved most of this crap but still can't completely disable the Nvidia GPU, so both integrated and dedicated are powered on. Frustrated AF.2
I just realized you cant disable Microsoft sending data to themselves. You can choose between normal mode and "basic" mode where less information is being sent. This is after the 5th "please wait" screen btw7
I hate it when I got severe sickness like fever that disable my focus and concentration, everything that i have planned to finish in a week is delayed, and any arrangements and meetings are postponed. It reduce me everything, productivity, income, client's trust, and it will eventually reduce my reputation.3
Crying right now. Tldr, feature demanded, never used. 8 months ago, bosses demand two features. Disable sync of products they choose and set a reserve quantity on products they choose. Code is done and in production, but the only time that choice has ever run is in testing. With over 10,000 products, not one has ever had sync disabled, or a reserve quantity !=0. I need a new job.2
MS Office is turning to crap. I have to use it extensively because of my job and it never fails to give me grief. Today I wasted so much time because even though excel is loading a CSV file, it still changes values (like april25 to april-25, or 1.0 to 1) without informing the user or ability to undo or disable, because it thinks it is too smart. :(1
So I've backed font awesome 5 a while back at kickstarter. I've linked my github account to the repo. Now my mailbox get spamed by their issues.
Question: is there a way to deactivate mail notification for a single repo?
So far i found:
- disable all github mails (nope)
- unwatch the repo (would work, but I just want to disable the emails, as they make up 50% of my daily inbox)4
Just moved my computer up to my new office... just to find that I'm suddenly having a driver issue (I think) that wasn't there before.
Basically my audio and mouse pointer hang for 1/10 of a second every few seconds.
The bad news is, it seems to disappear when I disable my wifi card, which I kinda need for my internet.. and I already have the latest drivers.8
whoever the fuck created the docker redis image:
why the fuck are you warning me hugepages are enabled and it eats up cpu ram when you don't let me disable it?
was it your point to waste 1h of my time? well you did. fuck you very much.4
Why the hell does my Samsung phone prevent me from uninstalling the Facebook app and instead offers me to disable it? WTF, NO, i want it freakin gone.
Bitch, Visibility: Hidden & Visibility: Gone are two different things.2
I've been wondering about renting a new VPS to get all my websites sorted out again. I am tired of shared hosting and I am able to manage it as I've been in the past.
With so many great people here, I was trying to put together some of the best practices and resources on how to handle the setup and configuration of a new machine, and I hope this post may help someone while trying to gather the best know-how in the comments. Don't be scared by the lengthy post, please.
The following tips are mainly from @Condor, @Noob, @Linuxxx and some other were gathered in the webz. Thanks for @Linux for recommending me Vultr VPS. I would appreciate further feedback from the community on how to improve this and/or change anything that may seem incorrect or should be done in better way.
1. Clean install CentOS 7 or Ubuntu (I am used to both, do you recommend more? Why?)
2. Install existing updates
3. Disable root login
4. Disable password for ssh
5. RSA key login with strong passwords/passphrases
6. Set correct locale and correct timezone (if different from default)
7. Close all ports
8. Disable and delete unneeded services
9. Install CSF
10. Install knockd (is it worth it at all? Isn't it security through obscurity?)
11. Install Fail2Ban (worth to install side by side with CSF? If not, why?)
12. Install ufw firewall (or keep with CSF/Fail2Ban? Why?)
13. Install rkhunter
14. Install anti-rootkit software (side by side with rkhunter?) (SELinux or AppArmor? Why?)
15. Enable Nginx/CSF rate limiting against SYN attacks
16. For a server to be public, is an IDS / IPS recommended? If so, which and why?
17. Log Injection Attacks in Application Layer - I should keep an eye on them. Is there any tool to help scanning?
If I want to have a server that serves multiple websites, would you add/change anything to the following?
18. Install Docker and manage separate instances with a Dockerfile powered base image with the following? Or should I keep all the servers in one main installation?
19. Install Nginx
20. Install PHP-FPM
21. Install PHP7
22. Install Memcached
23. Install MariaDB
24. Install phpMyAdmin (On specific port? Any recommendations here?)
I am sorry if this is somewhat lengthy, but I hope it may get better and be a good starting guide for a new server setup (eventually become a repo). Feel free to contribute in the comments.22
Why the fuck would you disable editing comments in a bug report? There goes 2 hours of my fucking life trying to edit two sentences
Hey guys I need help.
There was a video or gif posted here in which there was tool running with in Chrome or some browser where the guy first open a web page with adblock disable and then with enable. The tool show the links in pages present in tree like graph. And with adblock enable the graphs was smaller. I want to know the name of particular tool
Sorry, I don't know how to describe it, but it's driving me crazy now. I already searched all Chrome inbuilt urls.2
Who remembers seeing this?
I had many family members annoyed as it never worked for them, I ended up having to disable the update checker for them xD3
I hate people forgetting to enable option strict on Visual Basic .NET.
Why the heck does Visual Studio has it disabled by default anyways?!
Only use of disabling it I ever have found is for SignalR, disable it on just the file you need to.
Wait! There's another use, to compile the code of people that doesn't enable it. That is, of course, without rewritting the entire code base!
Fastboot I LOVE U!!!!
Somehow entered into a boot loop after enabling a EdXposed module.
LineageOS recovery sucks, has no terminal so can't disable magisk modules... only can mount system, not data....
So dumped LineageOS's payload.bin and flashed the clean boot.img11
I almost forgot to disable Java class accessing from Nashorn which would have made this possible in my Discord bot:
Going through another department's API documentation and wrapper library where it has documented samples on how to use it. One of the samples specifically shows how to disable HTTPs requests for when retrieving customer info but it also states in the documentation to specifically NOT USE this disable function.
When it comes to customer info, I don't know why the fuck you would allow an override option to do everything over unsecure requests, and even document about it!

why did i wrot that inf file?
You might want to disable your virus scanner before trying to install this joke. It's 100% totally legit. Virus free. Just ignore the warnings if you see them. It's the real deal.
Part of one of the workarounds for Dirty COW is to disable ptrace.
ptrace is generally needed by debuggers.
I am team lead for L2 support at a company which makes a debugger.
RedHat are now shipping this workaround.

I once had this discussion with my manager
Me: Hey i have an idea to improve our overall system but since it requires design changes which may break the system , can you provide me an experimental environment to implement and test it.
Manager: you should write code in a way you can flight it (disable/enable any changes)
I was totally out of words.... Who the hell flights a system design change?!
Latest version, monitor goes into sleep mode..
Some previous version, it didn't !
> The "disable screensaver" option isn't working
I can confirm that version 2.2.8 works as intended, as does indeed not let the monitor go to sleep, hurray !
To save me trying out every single version after that, does anyone know for sure a more up to date version that also works fine ?
Anybody know how to disable this?:
I just updated from 1803 to 1903. I normally connect this computer to an "offline" network. In 1803 it just worked normally and nothing happened when I connected to this network. Now in 1903 as soon as I log into the computer it pops up a browser window saying I am not connected to the internet. According to that link it should have been doing this in 1803, but it was not. Anybody know of a way to disable browser popping up reminding me there is no internet on my network?
Edit: Windows 10 BTW, for posterity.7

ok that's it, I hate Gmail security. If I don't have access to my phone I can't get on my account in order to recover my phone, fuck.
I have tried to disable all of the security but it's impossible3
Just in case, Windows 10 use your PC as an update server. You can disable it by going in Parameter>Update>Advanced
I DESPISE languages that enforce a style on you because "muh community code consistency". Like ok, I understand it, but if it gets to a point where I cannot configure *MY* IDE to format *MY* code the way I want I'm gonna get pissed at you. Why does it matter to you if my project uses 2 or 4 spaces? At least give me the option to disable your fucking formatter and use my IDE's default one.
Fuck you Dart.16
Knowing where to touch to get rid those annoying layered popups (like subscribe, disable adblock), menu bars, etc that appear when browsing (mostly) news sites.
Why is it that a website thinks that it would be a good idea to completely block a user from using their website if they have an adBlocker? Now don't get me wrong, I can understand them wanting to put up a message maybe saying "hey we make money off the ads that are displayed, please don't block them." But FFS give the user the choice to close the window and continue on if they don't want to disable their adBlocker! I know personally I just choose to leave the site and go elsewhere for content when I encounter those things!
Don't force me to disable and then refresh!2
The problem: The only way of having our users move a wpf control was to disable it. This caused the control to gray out.
The solution: Creating a .BMP of the control that would be placed on top of the control so that it didn't look disabled in order to not confuse the user.
My reaction to hearing this: vomit.
I pay for Youtube, because I'm a Google music (now youtube music, and much worse than it was) subscriber. Youtube pisses me off because if I curiously watch some video, their algo swoops in and starts recommending videos from r/youseeingthisshit or Craig ferguson clips, or fox news, or pbs kids or some other bullshit I don't want in my feed. The only way to disable algo, as far as I know, is to browse "incognito," which then forces ads on me.
Has newpipe been broken for everybody else for a while too?9
So, is it possible to disable push notifications for when someone comments on a rant you commented on by default?5
Confluence WYSIWYG-editor shall burn in a thousand hells. This thing pretends to be smart, yet all its autoformatting achieves is to enrage me. I don't remember dropping so many f-bombs in such a short time frame.
I hoped to ease to the pain by writing markdown, yet I can only write markdown in a new insert markup window which does not even comprehend nested lists. And don't get me started that it wants to push its Confluence Wiki syntax first. Why does it need to reinvent the wheel?
Why can't I disable the WYSIWYG feel of it and just write plain old markdown?
Confluence, you are part of the problem!
I rather keep the documetnation inside the git repostory inside of md files. But no, confluence shall be our source of soon to be outdated documentation.
Come on, Office. First you throw me out because my "cached credentials are expired" and disable saving. Sigh. OK, let's re-login. Now you show me neverending "Loading..." Instead of a login mask.
May I work on my document? PLEASE?
EDIT: I'm an idiot. Saving locally works.
Stupid windows update. You really want to update at the most inconvenient time.
I do manual update on my current computer but I boot up the old computer which I have store away. Remind me the reasons why I hate windows update and to disable automatic update.3
Warning: Might contain (be) stupid rambling.
So I got my new toy and want to play around with it. Just in case I have to return it I first want to make a full disk backup, so I try to boot clonezilla. I press the power button and mash F2, F8, F9 - and it boots straight into the windows setup. Nope, not what I wanted. Try again. And again. Eventually I look it up and apparently I have to hammer the ESC key to get where I want to. Alright, now it works. Boot from USB. Failed. Try again. Failed. Check the BIOS, disable secure boot, reboot. I need to type 4 digits to confirm disabling secure boot. Alright. Reboot, try again, failed. Secure boot is on again. Wtf? After some more infuriating tries I see that NumLock is disabled. AAAARGH. BIOS: Enable NumLock on boot, disable secure boot, enable legacy boot. Input the 4 digits - works! Try to boot from USB: Failed! Grab another USB stick, did the clonezilla image, try again: Finally! It! Works!
Format disk, install Qubes OS. Success!2
Ok, so i got an epic requirement from business.
Business wants to implement something like this. On a save click this popup should be opened with further 2 options "Save" and "Save As" having radio button in front of each button to enable and disable the buttons and input boxes and obviously error/success message should be
displayed according to the option selected.
Team denied to work on the requirement.5
got a client who wants me to "stream pdf files instead of serving them so users cant download or print them".
as far as I know this is impossible. but he replied we dont care if an IT guy figured out a way to get it but we want majority of normal people to be unable to figure a way around it.
if im gonna need to show ms word and pdf files i will need an iframe or object embed and i cant disable right clicks or listen on ctrl s / p.
any ideas or should i not go for the project :(12
I don't know maybe it's just me, but Mac asking if i want to update softwares just distracts me so much.
Also you can only disable it for a day, so after that it will ask you again... :/
Also chances are that I'm just dumb and couldn't find a way to disable it. :D Also open offices, no idea who though that it's a good idea1
Fucking Samsung should get their shit together. I can't even disable default apps on my phone I had to individually disable permissions for all my app settings.
PS: If anyone received any nude pics of mine, it was totally not intentional. ^_^
Thanks have a great day. :)4
Someone mentioned antivirus and custom code... it reminded me of when Symantec Endpoint Protection received an update and some of our production servers had our custom apps quarantined. We had about four servers that had most of our custom apps removed. When it happened I thought someone was monkeying with the servers (they were our task servers used for task and service jobs). It took me about an hour to realize what happened then another hour to get the SEP admins to disable it until we could get another patch. Fun day.
Yet another Windows 10 rant:
Since hibernation is broken (just locks the screen), I put my computer to sleep and went to bed. After a few minutes, IT STARTS UP.
So I disable hybrid sleep, wake timers, Update, etc. Same thing.
I try again... This time, it starts up too, but DOESN'T EVEN RESTORE!!
And this is a month-old install with latest update and no fishy drivers.
Windows really does hate me.1
Fucking translation service!! (Wordreference)
This morning I got the usual gdpr thingy and I thought "ok let's have a look what this translation service is doing"
You damn bitch that fucking list contains dozens and dozens of rows and I have to fucking manually disable them one by one.
What the hell, did you hire a monkey to code this stuff you utterly incompetent company? I'm never gonna you this thing again4
This is pretty cool. IDK when this was changed, but if you disable all toolbars in Visual Studio, the Send Feedback button won't take up an empty line anymore.3
Please give us Markdown in Slack already. How can that be much more "difficult" compared to Slack's own formatting?
At least give me the possibility to temporarily disable formatting, e.g. to not make bold when using asterisks. No, using inline code formatting is not a viable option. I simply want to have asterisks shown as normal text. I'm fine with escaping with e.g. backslashes. That's kinda normal.4
BLOODY FILTER KEYS. Suddenly my keyboard stopped working altogether. Why? Because Windows decided to filter my keyboard out, thanks to some accessibility setting. I had unchecked all the boxes in the accessibility settings, like I always do on a fresh Windows installation - BUT one that I forgot. I've always thought these accessibilty options are a FREAKING NUISANCE! Just because there are a few handicapped people who cannot use a keyboard normally, we all have to suffer :( These settings should be part of the installation like "Enable accessibilty settings by default" instead of something you must remember to disable afterwards.
To you CPP-devs,
I want to write a small ask-password tool, like systemd-ask-password, but tty-only and non-systemd.
I use termios to switch the terminal into noncanonical mode and disable echo of stdin.
Now I want to read chars from cin and append them to a string, until I read an endl or an error occurs.
In C, I could use an input-loop with getchar, but how could I do this the CPP-way, since cin.get() is nonblocking?2
Wow. Setting ReSharper -> Options -> Code Inspection -> Value analysis mode to Disable nullability analysis fixes pretty much all of the ReSharper typing lag for me.
Wish I had known this years ago. I love ReSharper, but the typing lag was always annoying.
Okay, can anyone explain to me why this is the third time in a row that I have to re-disable "fast startup" after a windows-update?
I know, some of you might think that windows sucks, and I agree, to some extent, but I still want to be able to play my games there.
So, is there any rational explanation for the fact that windows seems to suffer from some kind of amnesia when it comes to settings? I don't believe it was either bad intent or complete incompetence from the developers...
Is it a certain design decision? Or is is that hard to implement "persistent" settings storage?3
PSA: Apparently you can disable Play services within the Knox container on Samsung devices that have it.4
Fuck you librsvg and your stupid rules. I mean, they are not completely stupid, but they can at least make it follow symlinks or allow us to disable it...
Finding that you can disable users from changing their Win desktop background picture in the Registry.

Has anyone worked with libnice? Why is the dependency on GUPnP optional for libnice? This thing caused a huge leak in my program that I had to disable GUPnP, recompile libnice and then run my program for peace. I now need to document that my GUPnP was leaking all these for no reason as it was old or something. the version of GUPnP I use is 0.2.4. Can someone tell me the reason for the leak, the optional dependency etc?

Caching is cool. But damn it! When it comes to testing it's just a hell of a pain to search and disable every caching found to ensure the result is repeatable.
npm cache, /tmp, ~/.cache, and more, and more!
