I have a 6 month license on PyCharm Professional Edition.
I don't think I'll be learning Python anytime soon, so if anyone wants to use it, go ahead and redeem it.
PS: Would be nice if you could comment that you used it, so that other people know that it's gone.32
*Haxk20 slaps himself to check if he isnt dreaming.* You will see why.
So i go to twitch sometimes. And you know they sometimes have giveaways. Like you say yeah sure you cant win.
So there was giveaway for Ryzen 7 3700X.
I mean sure why not enter.
Days go past and im like IDK when they are rolling it.
So i join today on their stream just to be welcomed by "HERE HE IS" GG MATE.
WTF is happening i think.
So they explained that i won the giveaway and that they will be sending it my way very soon. Now if thats not crazy IDK what is.
And thats not the only thing that happened today. Sadly i cant talk about that. Lets just say that made my day and i officially made it best day of my life. And now this. Im officially saying it. BEST DAY OF MY FUCKING LIFE.24
Student approaches recruitment table
Student points to cheap pen giveaway
Student stares at me
Student maintains eye contact until I uncomfortably ask "Can I help you?"
Student: "I like your pens"
(Awkward pause. I expected him to introduce himself or ask for a pen)
Me: "Uh, would you like one?"
(Student nods vigorously, says nothing)
Me: "here you go"
(Student walks away wordlessly)
Hello fellow devRanters.
It's that time of year where we celebrate the holidays, and give thanks to each other.
This year has been a tough one. And for many people, life can be snide and harsh; the fact that such a community like this exists is a testament to that. But despite all this we continue to uplift each other through our hardships.
As a way of thanks for such a great community I'd like to give away a few Devie balls (:/ ) to some people.
I'll pick a few people at random, at around this time tomorrow, in the comment sections that would like to have a little devie ball.
In order to partake in this, I'd like you to tell me one thing about technology that you're most thankful for.51
Good morning everyone^^
I just heard my company is doinig some weird shit.
1. We RECOMMEND doing backups on a USB stick (our customers get a cheap giveaway when they purchase our products).
2. We sell farm controllers with less power than a fucking arduino as "Top Notch technology". (single core 1Mhz, 128MB RAM)
We Devs are not supposed to understand this logic. We shall only "make it faster". If proper solutions are suggested it gets shrugged off as "expensive".17
So this happened. Thanks for the stickers! It's pretty amazing y'all giveaway free stickers.
Keep being awesome! @dfox
I'll post some in action later. ;)4
Oh my god! Using Twilio js I sent a message to my sister telling her that her favorite YouTuber was doing some giveaway and that she won 1000 dollars, she was so happy and then she clicked the link to a blank page saying April fool's. I feel so accomplished
Inspired by @COD4's rant here: https://devrant.com/rants/3080528, I decided to go overboard a bit and catalogue (almost) all my unused Humble Bundle keys.
Given that there was well in excess of 300 of them I decided a more structured distribution mechanism was needed.
If you want to see if any are interesting for you, check the repository here: https://github.com/kwilliams1987/...
I have 5 more months of Humble Monthly to do still but need a break now...17
I hate my tablet...
It is a giveaway from my sister and it is a bit damaged. It's unresponsive on a straight line from the one side on the middle of the screen to the other.
It's an old tablet, so it has not much memory and it lags a lot, especially during app updates.
To "work" with it, I have to switch from landscape to portrait mode and vice versa, because many apps put dialogs exactly in the middle of the screen, on the unresponsive part.
But what I hate most about this situation is that there are apps that are locked on portrait mode and I can't access them... It wouldn't hurt much if all apps could rotate from one mode to the other!!!
I'm on limited funds for quite a while, so I'm stuck with it for now. Meh... ☹4
giveaway = u'free'

The user located in germany who comments first, gets them.26
A prime example of bad UX from the guys at Ubisoft.
They have this 30-day giveaway up to Christmas and it's terrible.
1. They are giving away posters and shit wallpapers in the lowest resolutions, like really, how long would it have taken to export that shit in 4K? Also, that is a cheap as fuck move. You are Ubisoft, give away some games, for fucks sake! Not shit posters in a resolution so low that I can't use it for wallpaper or print it.
2. When you enter the site you don't have a fucking login button! You have to guess that you have to click a number and then it prompts you to login. Also, why the fuck can't you sustain my login from yestersay?
I anyone wants to see this mess it's over at https://30days.ubi.com1
I was rendering a video, when my buddy called me, and asked for help for youtube chat bot for fidget spinner giveaway
Now we are both running it...1
Stop asking me if I want to play rugby or other sports for that matter! I'm a coder and I've never been known for playing sports, my lack of shoulders should be a giveaway. I cant image I've ever been picked for a sports team. Oh but I'll code my shit out of any situation so guess I'll make a sports game / app. Fuck off.4
So I go to a GDG for VRView tonight, and generally had a great time. I arrived on time, got set up, crushed the coding exercise, and helped a couple of people out with their code.
As is standard procedure with these kinds of events, there was a giveaway at the end - a sealed Daydream View. The guy running the event picked the winner randomly. I was #6, due to the fact that a guy came in literally 20 minutes before we wrapped. Guess who won the VR set? Yep, the dude who came in late, and sat immediately to my right, making him person #5. I'm pretty sure the words "greifer" and "twatwaffle" ran through my head as I packed up to leave. -_-
I really need help in designing an icon for my reddit app. Just the main icon. Please pitch in with concepts, sketches.. The best entry shall get my stickers.. At the very least you'll help a brother out..8
