My mom walks in and asks what am I doing and I said hacking government files and she called the police thanks mom😑14
So there was an inspection from government for our bank's IT security. I gave a tour to our server and security systems. I threw all possible acronyms as much as I could remember. Inspector nodded and noted down never uttered a word.
Finally, he breaks his silence, looking at a device he points out and says "What's that ?"
I look at the device then stare at his face back again at the device and to his face I reply "That's AC, Air Conditioner".19
The HTTP error 451 means "content is not available because of legal reasons".
The name comes from Ray Bradbury's book Fahrenheit 451, which is about a dystopian society where books and literature are censored by the government.8
Huge developer convention with 4 speakers today.
A government innovation team,
I'm freaking out.
Wish me luck, I need it...10
"I don't care if the government spies on me, I have nothing (criminal) to hide."
Uhm... but... if you have nothing criminal to hide.... then why'd they have to spy on you/collect your data...?
After all you didn't do anything illegal...58
Every Monday morning:
I hate this 9-5 life. This kind of time constrains should not be allowed. I will not allow someone else to control my life. *gets ready to make rebel group and protest against government*
10 minutes later:
*sigh* *Opens up Visual Studio*10
Microsoft: we're releasing chromium based edge on 15th of Jan 2020
Government tax website: this website works only on Internet Explorer
Please god put me out of my misery22
People should just die now. It's over.
We all know that businesses started utilizing Facebook and Instagram, now even government offices and hospitals use it. I called this hospital for a check-up and they said if it's not a life-threatening situation, I should just go to this Facebook page. Okay, fuck this shit but let's create a dummy account.
I messaged them and they said that in order to proceed, they need a government ID, previous prescriptions, and my membership card. Send all these things via Facebook messenger, what the fuck? I just have nothing else to say.
The thing that brings tears to my eyes is the fact that even you choose not to do it, some of their employees may have been passing around your information this way. It's messed up. I'm losing hope. I already lost my energy.38
Today it was revealed that the dutch government doesn't even fucking use SPF records for their email. Someone found out by sending an email in the dutch's govt name and it actually fucking worked.
I hope they fire the people responsible for NOT implementing the most BASIC FUCKING EMAIL SECURITY/VALIDITY MEASURES IN FUCKING HISTORY.
Incompetent cocksucking motherfucking fucks.13
2 years ago in India the government removed net neutrality. We fought tooth and claw and brought back net neutrality. (In 3 months). Never lose hope, keep fighting. 😊2
Last year our government voted out new mass surveillance law through like it was nothing AND with a huge amount of votes in favor and hardly any against. (remember that the government is *supposed* to represent the people of the country)
A few students made a referendum happen, 48 percent of our people came to vote for this.
The first exit poll results are about 50/50!
I'm happy as fuck, damn!
Sorry for this slightly political posts and if this entirely violates all terms, I'll remove it. I thought this fits, though, because of what this new law.15
Person: Oh! blablabla.onion isn't working. It must be the government censoring it.
Me: No, its because you're trying to open a onion website in Google Chrome.2
Yeah, let's teach Java the Script
And this seems to be an official institution created by the city's government. 🤔11
Fun fact: devRant was actually a government experiment to look into developers' enigmatic minds, but it was abandoned quickly because all they did was talk abt how their job sucks and make jokes about semicolons.8
So a friend of mine ran a Tor Exit node at home for a few month.
He upgraded to gigabit so he was able to push 950Mbit/s quite nicely. He has the oldest Tor Relay (11 years) and was the 2nd fastest exit node.
But he was sadly forced to remove the exit policy, because the police and some other government agencies knocked on his door today.31
To all dutch people on here, the new surveillance law I ranted about a month or something ago has passed if my source is correct.
Passed as in, the government has voted in favor.
Time to start encrypting/vpn'ing/torring and securing your computers!
Feel free to use this rant's comment section as Q/A and tips section for this subject as well :)40
I read a story about a guy from Greece who wants to delete his gender from his id and my first thought was how many 20 year-old government database schemas that is going to mess up.22
Current project: turning my Raspberry Pi into a personal VPN server.
Thanks for making this feel necessary, US Government!12
Israeli government hackers hacked into Kaspersky’s network in 2015 and caught Russian government hackers red-handed hacking US government hackers with the help of Kaspersky.
In other words — Russia spying on America, Israel spying on Russia and America spying on everyone.10
My hubby saw me using Secure Shell to install some software on a cloud server I'm using through the terminal. After a few minutes of watching, he said, "Oh, the government better watch out for you!"
I've been unable to successfully convince him I'm not some elite super-hacker like he's used to seeing in movies and NCIS.8

I just almost shat myself.
I altered the wrong database table column...truncated data we are required to keep for government compliance.
Luckily I had exported that table earlier today and was able to recover it all. I'm in need of a very strong drink right about now.12
Someone registered a company in the UK to reap havoc on government and directory sites.
(And some people say registering a company in the UK is too easy!)5
My government is FUCKING STUPIDLY JOKING. I can't confirm this but what i heard from friend of mine who works on that place. The server is turned off after work hours. And yes Holiday included. What the fuck? Are they even know the basics?
And yet today is not even a holiday. And i got this "Server Hangup" unhelpful Message.
This site is supposed to be the place to handle Online Taxation. And the deadline to report my company's earning is just tommorow, yet we can't do anything if the website IS NOT FUCKING ON!!!! I DON'T WANT TO PAY FINE CHARGES BECAUSE LATE REPORT SUBMISSION!!!! THIS IS GOVERNMENT FAULT NOT MINE!19
So... an Italian government website published sensitive data of thousand of citizens, because they thought that it was enough to turn white the text color in order to anonymize the sensitive content of the files. Italy, 2019.
Source (in Italian):
Government Fucking Websites.
Slow as fuck, disorganized, errors from 2004, UI from 2001.
You have to use them at a time when you really don't feel like waiting 30 fucking seconds for each page load.
Or filling out a fucking form that, ok, they made SOME kind of attempt to save your data, but it's overly complex and annoying.
Government websites. Making tasks that should take 5 minutes, 5 hours, since 1998.
My dystopian fuckwad of a government just blocked duckduckgo.
China just took some of our land, so they got around to banning chinese apps on local internet. And while they were at it, for no reason they blocked a bunch of privacy apps and duckduckgo. Which is an American company.
How fucking convenient.21
I'm not from EU or anything but you guys from the EU should thank the government for increasing the prices of your phones 👌.11
After working over 14 years as it-systemadministrator and developer for a city government I finally quit today and switched into a start-up. Lower wage, vacation days and many more "downsides"...but I am allowed to follow my passion and create something that matters. I'm afraid and super jacked. Wish me luck :)
tl;dr quit job to get complete expression. afraid and jacked at once :)5
GAHHHHHHHHHH! Damn USPS!!! Privatize them already! Stolen is more like it. It was a Gigabyte Aorus X470 Mobo, an AMD Ryzen 5 2600X CPU, and 16GB of memory. The postal service is a bloated, unresponsive, government run trainwreck. If people would just stop using them, they would shrivel up and blow away. ARRGH!!! 🔥☠️🔥☠️🔥29
I have bank accounts with 5 different banks.
I HAVE TO use 4-5 different government websites.
Every fucking place: you cannot use these "~-/;^"(some others too) symbols in your password.
Are you freaking fucking kidding me!! And all of them have a limit of 12or15 characters.
If this wasn't mind numbingly stupid enough, they fucking go ahead and force you to change password every fucking month or two.
THIS IS NOT SECURITY. YOU SHOULDN'T FORCE SOMEONE TO LIMIT THERE PASSWORDS TO:
- CERTAIN CHARACTERS
- A 15 CHARACTER SIZE LIMIT
- THRN OVERTHAT, FORCE TO CHANGE PASSWPRDS PERIODICALLY.
ALL THE 5 MAJOR FUCKING BANKS IN INDIA.
FUUUUUCCCCKKKKK YOUU 🖕12
There are cybercrimes. That means you can be put to jail for performing certain actions with your computer. I’m taking about serious crimes like hacking crucial governmental servers but not about insulting people online. I’m talking about something that’ll make government chase you.
Every action at the computer could be done with keyboard only.
My face when there is finite sequence of keys that you press one by one and then become a criminal. And go to jail.
My face when if you put that sequence into script file, there is file that you double-click and instantly become criminal.
Press here to go to jail. The whole new level of abstraction.
Really makes me think.7
Russia removes windows from all government computers to "show that they're serious about cybersecurity"....3
Me vs a government employee in India...
Me: You should have setup net banking on your website. I had to travel 20 miles to get to your office to make a payment.
Employee: Sir, we do have net banking enabled.
Me: I searched all over your website but couldn't find it.
Employee: Oh! Well, I guess it stopped working since it rained yesterday.4
Work at a media company that reports political news. The government tries to block, launch DDoS attacks, and send a group of thugs to protest outside the office. How to migrate to Canada again?14
* Initial Interview*
HR: We do offer remote job, lots of benefits and annual increase of salary.
Supervisor: "Oh... Those things HR mentioned? That's just a lie. We're just complying on the government requirements"6
This F***ing government college faculty crossed my complete answer of a F***ing bubble sort in 3rd year of Mathematics & Computing by saying and I quote, " Why is this i loop inside of j loop?" and after getting again on my feet after listening and understanding this absurd statement, I tried to explain to which he asked ne to show any book where it is written like this.
To i loop and j loop he meant the variable name in for loops, 🤬🤬🤬🤬
these f***ing reserved government professors in elite institutions like IITs15
Quick update on Brazil distribution strike
We are out of gas.
Government might call the army.
We might run out of water by Tuesday.
We are too much dependant on fossil fuels... Wtf?
The cleaning lady saga continues yet again..
Here in Belgium, cleaning ladies are paid with cheques. All fine and dandy, and apparently the parent organization (Sodexo) even migrated to digital cheques. Amazing!!!
If only they did it properly.
Just now I received an email with my login data.
Password: I won't reveal the amount of characters.. but it's not even hex. It's just uppercase letters, and far from what I'd deem even remotely secure. Hopefully I'll be able to change that shitty password shortly, and not get it mailed back, even when I ask for recovery. Guess I'll have to check that later - the person who made that account was pretty incompetent when it comes to tech after all. Don't ask me why they did it instead of me. I honestly don't really know either.
With that said, this is a government organization after all... Can I really expect them to hash their passwords?24
Dear Australian Government and National Authorities, you can go fuck the right away with this shit!
It’s bad enough we are a country of national data collection with flimsy laws of obtaining access to said data, but to then go that one step further and shove back doors into everything is going too far.
Under the proposed new laws, Australian government agencies could compel companies to provide technical information such as design specifications to help in an investigation, remove electronic protections, assist in accessing material on a device subject to a warrant and even build or install software or equipment that could help authorities gather information.
What could possibly go wrong 🤷♂️2
How some of our country's government websites handle responsive web design:
"Best viewed in Internet Explorer 5.x or higher in 1024 x 768 resolution"5
"A Single Line of Computer Code Put Thousands of Innocent Turks in Jail"
I'll leave the title as it was, but people were hunted down just for having been once logged by a tracking pixel inside a messaging app.
Simply terrifying, I hold that off for a while, since it sounded like the usual fakes, but it seems its not, as more and more keep confirming it.
"The government eventually exonerated 11,480 of the wrongly accused, but some had already spent months in prison, and reportedly some even committed suicide."
"Elif finished dressing her youngest and watched police search her family's home before they took her into custody — for using a messaging app the government deems seditious.
She knew the arrest was coming. She'd already lost her job, because traces of the app known as Bylock were found on her phone"
"The regime relies on logs from the country's ISPs to identify users of Bylock, fingerprinting them on the basis of their communications with Bylock's servers. These communications can be triggered without using Bylock, though: Bylock's tracking pixel was used for analytics for pop-up ads and in at least eight apps."
So I can't VPN into my production servers because our fucking government decided to block them
How on earth can I work you ignorant basterds12
It happened just now.
Yes, I put "there is no need to be upset 10 hours" on governmental terminal.
How? Well, I discovered that it was web ui, so random menu category -> random external governmental website with Google map on it -> you know the rest.5
Australia passes anti-encryption law
More like "Have a backdoor" and please tell us about that. So that we can spy on people keeping on the stake of individual and national security
On hold to the jobcentre, coming up to 1.5 hours now...
FUCK YOU WITH A CACTUS WRAPPED IN BARBED WIRE YOU USELESS CUMSTAIN OF A GOVERNMENT. I HAVE NO FOOD, NO HOME, AND 20% BATTERY.
SORT YOUR SHIT BEFORE I FIND EVERY SINGLE FUCKING CALL CENTRE AND FIREBOMB THEM.
fucking hell. I fucking hate this shit.8
My current distraction is that I have found a local government surplus auction and I keep buying toys. This is my current distraction setup.9
Security rant ahead, you have been warned!
As part of a scholarship application, our government requires a scan/copy of the applicant's credit card. Since the IBAN is now on the back, you have to send both sides.
The back is also where the CVC (security code) is. Any bank will strictly tell you NOT TO EVER SHARE IT - not even with them!
To make things even more fun, you now have the option to send this over email which is, of course, NOT ENCRYPTED!!!!!
I'm basically sending all the info needed to steal all my money over an unencrypted connection to an underpaid secretary, who will print it out and leave it on their desk for anyone with decent binoculars to see.
These people are fucking insane!!!!9
I have reached a new milestone in the "Now I've seen everything..." chapter of my career. And that's because today I discovered that Italy has managed to bring it's gloriously shitty bureaucracy to the 21st century, with a twist...
Yes my friends, what you see in the image literally means that you can only use the Ministry of Internal Affairs' web site from Monday to Friday between 7 and 20......... I'll let that sink in...
WHAT IN THE ABSOLUTE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!?!?!?!? WHO THOUGHT OF THIS??? WHY???12
Worked for the US federal government. Stuff couldn't be used unless it had been approved. Had to us Python 2.6. Python 3 was out by then. Basically anything brand new or even new within the last 5 years wasn't allowed, but was expected to make apps that represented modern web apps.1
So, being from the tropics, this is the first time I've seen(or rather lived through) temperature going below 0c.
In India if the temp went below 4c, the government would cancel schools n stuff, sooooo, a big deal.6
So our government is going to summon individuals who have invested in Bitcoin, suspecting they might be hiding 'Black Money' under the name of Bitcoin...
Guess the government20
The fucking government in my country has put 15℅ sales tax on all internet downloads and subscriptions.
As a consumer and seller, this is unacceptable.
Governments are retarded!13
Glassdoor.com is in hot water after federal investigators in the US sent a subpoena to unmask anonymous users who might be "third party witnesses" to certain business practices by a company under investigation for fraud.
Can DevRant (@dfox, @trogus) be forced to unmask its users (IPs, emails) in a any way, by the US government (@fbi, @cia, @nsa) or any other government (@svr_rf, @mss, @mi6, @bnd), should a similar situation arise?15
Well, goodbye my free time, it was a pleasure to meet you sometimes. We'll probably never see each other from now on.
Our government just voted on a law that extends overtime legally like crazy.7
You know what I envy Americans about? Your .gov domain.
It is so difficult here to detect if the website is honest or a scam because our government is too dense to put all their sites as subdomains of one trusted domain. Like dod.country.tld for the department of defense or justice.ministry.country.tld for the ministry of justice.
No, these idiots buy ministry-of-justice.tld, because no scammer ever could conceive the idea of buying ministryofjustice.tld to host a scam site.
At least publish an up2date list with domains I can trust.7
The TSA might have paid $1.4 million for the app demonstrated here: https://youtube.com/watch/... (they claim they "only" paid $47,000). Either way, seriously?????3

slow ass piece of hot steaming pile of shit, monolithic, resource-wasting, overly complex, overpriced government service. DIE
Found a very interesting use case of git and github, it seems that even government such as the Washington DC City council uses Git & Github to publish laws! Citizens have even given PRs to fix certain typos through git :p.
I changed my name on here. When i go back, looking at old rants of mine, people are mentioning "some dude" who doesnt exist anymore.
If only hiding from the government was that easy4
Today, the security department stopped our new project and told us to work on the last project instead because of a top-secret security flaw.
Problem is, they are not allowed to tell us what the problem is. FML2
My mum just had to call me to change our home WiFi password, because she can't change it on her laptop.
She's pretty bad with technology, but she had to call me to do it, because no one else knew how to. Including my brother-in-law who designs IT systems for major banks and system admins working for the government.
She had to call me, from Hungary to do it. I live in Scotland.4
A government policy for economic growth:
Locate a silicon valley
-> Place a rubber duck
-> build skyscrapers
-> faster debugging for everyone
-> silicon valley competitiveness
-> push GDP growth
-> place an even bigger rubber duck
Everytime the government gets involved with internet, restrictions get applied.
Everytime restrictions get applied everyone loses their shit, screaming revolution.
This is how protest against corruption happens in India :|
Thank god, government people know 'C' 😀3
When you're signing up for an account on a government site not to be named in this rant and they limit your password to 6 alphanumeric characters and no special characters... Smh8
Government website sends me my username and password over plain text email after I sign up...
WHAT WHY WHO LET THIS HAPPEN6
Signed up for a driving class...
This is what i get in the mail shortly after.
Fucking fantastic guys! Saving passwords plaintext. Is it because of the government?16
Am I allowed to use an API from the government that they do not have publicly documented or explicitly said anyone can use BUT don't have any authentication on it?10
I usually convince myself like "no corporate/government has enough computational resources to classify useful information from enormous pile of worthless junk they could blindly collect from tracking every single step of all their users."
But every time I see this, it's like I hear them saying "Why we should bother? You just handpick the important ones. Thank you."9
Article 13 has been FUCKING PASSED. SHIT SHIT FUCKEDDY FUCK ING FUCK-CHRIST ON A FUCKING FUCK BYCICLE MADE OF FUCKING ARSNIC COVERED LEGO BRICKS WITH PINS INSTEAD OF BUMPS BEING RIDDEN BY THE DECREPIT CORPSES THE EU CALLS A FUCKING GOVERNMENT!!

Step #1) Teach Alexa to respond to "When is Memorial day" with an incorrect date in the future
Step #2) Ask Alexa, next to your wife.
Step #3) See how long you can keep your wife going on "the government moved Memorial Day due to Coronavirus" before she realizes your just a prankster.1
Is every fucking government website in the world designed as if only half-dead soul sucked people with infinite time and dedication to decipher the jumble will visit them, or is it just exclusive to India?
Seriously, shell out a few more bucks to your wed-designers. Will save you years worth of frustrated users's curses.. 😡😡7
Similar to other countries if you work in international projects and companies.
If you work for big government related / small domestic company projects you can meet with comments and variables named in native language instead of english.
Just because there are probably only 2-3 companies who win every government project, they take all money and pay shit to developers.
To meet requirements they mostly hire fresh graduates to do the job.
CEO of one of those most famous quote is: You can replace every developer with finite number of students.2
Aus Gov: here's a bright idea, let's enforce social media accounts being verified with enough identification to pull of identify theft with ease for the greater good.
Facebook: 533 million accounts leaked with names, email, phone, address details.
Oh great. I just DDoS'ed a service issued by the government by doing two parallel SOAP requests with a fricking 4 year old MacBook.2
I sign the lease to my first apartment in just a few weeks!
I'd like to say thanks to the US government for allowing me to go in debt so I can live independently and not be forced to live with a random person in a dorm on campus.5
Why can't software development just be software development? I hate when laws and politics, etc., get in the way
Look at this, for example: https://arstechnica.com/information...
Apple added some code to make the Chinese government happy, which resulted in a bug, which is stupid!4
This is legit bad news.
The Big Hack: How China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies
The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 U.S. companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising America’s technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources.
I’ve only just been able to catch up with the UK news and the government missed ~16,000 cases of COVID-19 over a 7 day period due to a “technical glitch”.
The “technical glitch” was the government using an excel spreadsheet that reached the data limit.
Who the fuck thought that was a good idea long term, that’s why databases exist!!!!10
Recently I came across a job advert that literally said:
"If you're still full of ideals and will to work, go look for a job elsewhere!!!"
Man, how fucked up is your company if this is how you promote it? Sad thing is that even though their website looked like shit, they boasted about big government projects there.2
An enormous government project that leaves the tax office's database along with all backups exposed to SQL injection.
I know for a fact that the tax office database in at least one country only got a cold backup a few years ago, so it's more likely than you think.
Although around that time someone hacked the public transport company and bought a 12 month ticket for free as PoC and he got jail for it so the risk is quite high.5
Not a bug, but a government web system to have control over financial expenses from a region in my country has the login access admin:admin.
Somehow they manage to keep it like that for years with no problem.3
Rant about the Hungarian corruption.
Today I was on a driving test with two others, I was the last one.
They just flat out told us that two of us will pass, the first two who bribe them(the driving instructor and the inspector)
I was the last in line, and both paid before me so I failed my driving test automatically and I have to retake it(because if all three pass, than attention is brought onto the corruption), and even have to pay the fee to be able to retake the exam, and now I will have to bribe them too, so I can pass.
This pisses me off so much, I wish I had alexdelarge as my personal rant writer so he could express my pure anger and hatred.5
I'm lead frontend developer/ consultant on a big government project, it's 10 days to release and I couldn't make it to a dinner with girlfriends extended family.
Pretty sure I just got dumped as she doesn't want to be in the way for my work so she is packing her stuff and leaving my apartment tonight.
about 6 years ago I was working for a large consulting company on a government project. I put in a change for a stored procedure that hard coded the partition to 0, except 0 didn't exist on production, just on test. several thousand government employees couldn't access it for a day. 😞
Somebody tell JetBrains that government-funded projects that are publicly available and free are also FOSS and shouldn't be exempt from free licenses dammit10
Well fuck me i thought working for a company was 1) i do work 2)company pays me. Not fucking spending 3 whole days running between government offices trying to get my taxes done because half of the documents can only be sent online and the other half can only be sent in person.1
If the Kenya ICT bill will be passed into law, it will soon be illegal to write any code as a developer or engineer or practice any ICT career without a license ($460 per year) or without a college degree 😢9
It pains most when a colleague left the company for good since OJT. Worst is leaving the company without a pay, no refund for not remitted governmentt benefits. I thought this only applies to fucking government or politicians, but also to the company you worked and shared most of your goddamn life not wondering why most good employees left the company.
They wanna increase the tax of everything probably including the ball weight. Hey you got big ball, give 10% of your salary as tax. Fuck you government.
But you can't even provide a fucking proper electricity during day time.7
*follow-up to https://devrant.com/rants/1887422*
The burnt remnants of my ID card's authentication information, waiting for the wind to come pick it up. It's stored in my password database now and committed to my git server, as it should be. Storing PIN and PUK codes on paper, whatever government cunt thought thought that that was a good idea...
If you've got identification papers containing authentication information like PIN and PUK codes, by all means add them to your password manager (if you're using Linux, I'd like to recommend GNU Pass) at once and burn the physical version. There's no reason why you'd want those on paper, unless you store your passwords on a post-it too.
At least that's as much as me and possibly you as citizens can do. Our governments are doomed anyway, given the shitty security policy they have, and likely the many COBOL mainframes still in use today. Honestly, the meddlings of Russia with the US elections doesn't seem too far-fetched, given this status quo. It actually surprises me that this kind of stuff doesn't happen more often, given that certain governments hire private pentesters yet can't secure their own infrastructure.
So ... We have this century old , "respectable" government postal service that delivers and is the standard postal service on the country...
You buy something online and they send with it... 2 weeks...
You buy something online and they use private service... 1 day...
Yeah, fuck you too.11
Worst career choice: Not following computer science because there were few careers for computer techs pre-2000s.
Best career choice: Do a 2 years course in CNC (paid by the government). Also, the worst carer choice because I got my burn out in the first (one of the best in the region) molding company I worked for.
Government applications meant to handle private data made in the laziest way using cordova. Hell yea. Bonus points for using the developers account with his first and last name as publishing company to put the app on playstore and not their own official one (not that they have one). Whats not to love. Cant wait to beautify that js to find out that the calls are http and not https.3
I was on a interview two weeks ago, got a mail today that I had been selected to the third round (government intel stuff)
I got clean sheet from the police and the "Security Service" in the country.
And now, in the mail. The recruiter wanted me to give contacts to my current boss. I am one of 4 and I dont want to sacrifice the trust that my boss have on me.
What the '''' should I do?2
A few days ago I read an article about an IT company in germany winning in court. They sueed the government for charging them taxes for offering breakfast to their employees. They won because the jury said coffee and dry buns is not a breakfast.
So, my question is is there some guy from called company here on devrant? 🙂5
The dutch government started using "mono" as a slogan against distracted driving.
The only thing that enters my mind every time it's on is the mono project....1
Worst: Getting struck with Corona when moving to a European country via job, everything went shit, visa late, starting job is late and never certain, for 8 months I was in limbo.
Best: Finally got job and moved, been playing video games all day because it is government job and no way to check what I am doing. Fuck it, I dont like software development as my salary job, just as hobby.
Bye, have to play game.9
Two years ago, a government agency hired an applicant with obviously lesser experience (a fresh graduate for crying out loud) than mine for a developer job (with 13 years of foundation). He was hired because he had connections inside this agency.
Recently, I heard that this guy is starting to be a pain in the neck. Who wouldn't be?!?! The guy has got connections inside. He's untouchable. And it's irreversible. Sad story.10
Oh my fucking god. Austria wants to sell the data of it's citizens to schools, universities museums, and: Companies with enough money. What the fuck?
The data contains shit from the central register of residents, information about name, date of birth, sex/gender, nationality, recidence, health data (!), education, social security/insurance, tax data, E-Card/ELGA Data (system where your doctor visits, prescribed medicines/drugs, all these things, are saved), and other shit.
Welcome to 2018, where you can try as hard as you want to keep your privacy, and then your government sells all the shit you are not able to remove. Fucking bullshit.9
I've been using Firefox focus for a while, and for the most part, I like it. But why the hell won't it let me go to government websites (taxes, passports, etc)?
Regular Firefox has no issues with it, why does focus?4
So apparently there's going to be some sort of "link tax" for creating hyperlinks to other peoples websites.
What's next is the EU government going to start requiring people to register a license to run a webserver on their computer?5
The largest ISP in my country, a government backed service, hijacks URLs randomly and injects pop up into web browser!
Imagine if getting hijacked during an online transaction... Glad it never happened yet.
But Fuck them for doing this.7
I'm still on my first job. Started on November , 2015. I am a system analyst for the government. Love it very much. I work with great and fun people and my boss is badass. And besides all that, I get paid relatively well for someone with my level of experience. Really can't complain.3
TIL in China you need to get a government issued license to run a website. Wouldn't surprise me if the EU started taking cards from their playbook.3
According to the report of Reuters: The United States Navy banned the social media app TikTok from government-issued mobile devices, saying the popular video app represented a "cybersecurity threat." A bulletin issued by the Navy on a Facebook page saying users of government issued mobile devices who had TikTok and did not remove the app would be blocked from the Navy Marine Corps Intranet.
The Navy would not describe in detail what dangers the app presents, but Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Uriah Orland said in a statement the order was part of an effort to "address existing and emerging threats...." The U.S. government has opened a national security review of the app's owner ByteDance.10
I'm not here to underestimate the design of a government app on Android.
I hope the developer considered the UI itself as user-friendly and not the default button from android studio. he just simply copies the contents(text & images) from the government web page and paste it to its application.
He/she got paid well to make that app. well, although the information is correct for the users.
It's not much that users are even enthusiastic of the design. they simply read the guidelines inside the app and no more fancy animation.1
Many ATMs here in India are planning to upgrade from Windows XP due to the wannacry ransomware attacks.
I literally want wannacry to seize my data so that i can go ahead and pay them 600$ to do something that even the FUCKING GOVERNMENT wont do.7
My dream project is something very simple but not yet done in Pakistan.
I want to create a marketplace for musical instruments and related equipment. Currently it's very hard for amateur musicians in Pakistan to find the gear they're looking for, and being one of these musicians myself, I know how frustrating it can be. So it'd be great if I can solve that problem in a country where the government does very little to help independent artists grow.1
Fucking regulations, can’t play with twilio api.
Waiting for verification of my identity to make a fucking test call to myself.
Wanted to make a proof of concept during weekend, but won’t happen cause some fucking policies.
Fuck you government pigs.
Probably need to wait to fucking Monday. I will forget what I wanted to do till that time.
We are making your life easier all the time in the news, yeah right eat those popups motherfuckers.
Next regulation - government code reviews before push to master and programmer certification, for sure those fuckers are able to do it.
Really considering emigration from Europe right now.
No fucking point to start a business on this continent.
More fucking law please so we would need a lawyer before wiping ass.
Need to watch that southpark episode about security toilet checkout once again.2
It seems like sensitive websites that need more priority to work fine are the ones that do not. I'm talking about government, school, bank, & service provider sites. Or it's just my retarded country.9
Fucking government shifting day light saving time by two weeks making me rely on my phone time zone auto-update and wake up one fucking hour earlier!
Way to go Monday...4
Some internet security officers (working for the government on internet privacy related stuff) tells the media that they can decrypt your Facebook credentials in less than 7 seconds.
Everyone let's take a break to laugh at these morons hahaha6
A twat working for UKTI (UK trade and industry, paid by the government) is advising businesses to have either a Wordpress site or a magneto site. What kind of fukwit fool cunt is this guy, that's not advice.2
mom: son you received a package
me: wow 😍 (expecting stressball)
mom: oh nice, it is great
me: wow (so fast international delivery)
mom: it an invitation to a state level event organised by state government
me: yeah, mom i applied for it.
stress over stressball
I don't get government spending on education programs for coding. What's the point? Affirmative action?6
You know what, I think the USA government just had a Windows Update, oh no wait, their versions of Windows are too old, they ain’t attacked by MS anymore.
me after watching snowden(2016) yesterday : "Holy shit, government is going to fuck our privacy!!"
me after watching the circle today: "Holy shit big private companies are going to fuck our privacy!!"
My office senior watching me "Holy yeah boss is going to fuck your privacy"6
"The era of self-regulation for online companies is over." UK Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright.
Look for governments, especially those without strong free speech protections, to move to control the means of communication for the masses, and control what people see and hear.2
So yesterday there was suppose to be a test of the AlertReady Canadian program. Didn’t work in Quebec.

Today the government from Costa Rica announced their solution to tax double any UBER charge registered to debit/credit cards.
Their logic is to pretty much do it for any commerce that includes the letters UBER. Like something out of your first Unity C++lesson2
Participating in a non-profit project related to corona outbreak. It should help thousands of people to say at home, have a peace of mind and stay healthy.
Our project should go Live this/next week and we already have a blessing from our government. They are already making some legal exceptions to us.
That feels good!5
In these dark times, it's inspiring to see that a country as insignificant as Australia can demonstrate to us how things can always get worse.
By passing a law mandating that encryption must be broken, in secret (like the US's National Security Letters), at the demand of the Government, the two biggest parties have colluded to destroy Australia's tech sector.
This is the same government that has been whining endlessly about using Huawei LTE equipment in Australian infrastructure "because it might be secretly compromised". Now the same is true of Australian equipment, by law.
My favourite part of all this is how there will be firmware updates for devices sold in Australia, in order to comply with the new law. How well do you think those backdoors will be secured? How thoroughly do you expect them to be tested, given Australia's population of only 25 million?
How can any Australian company expect customers to trust them now?4
Did you know that North Korea has its own government approved Linux distro? Well, now you do.
It is so funny that the damn North Korea has fully transferred to Linux, but not any country in Europe, nor the US.
So have anyone here tried it? If so, how is it?
Article about distro:
What is the probability of alien rootkit signal that would be intercepted by satellite and then executed on modern computers to create AGI that can use cloud computing and digital currency to take over our world ?
From my perspective pretty high 🤣🤣🤣
Let’s convince some government people and create intergalactic cyber attack defense institution, that would keep earth safe from alien invasion, with high money grants so we can prevent those threats.
Maybe Ernest Cline Armada is already a thing.
What you think ?2
Welp, there goes internet freedom.
I'm all for deregulation, but not for ISPs. Not when there is no competition. Not when a lack of competition is enforced by local, state, and federal law.
Deregulation of a government-enforced monopoly is just gross cronyist malfeasance.
2020 will be either the greatest or the worst, depending on whether the newly elected government in the UK decide to continue to shaft freelancers and Contractors1
I can't believe I have been so blind all this time! For years I have unquestionably accepted the lies of corporations and governments around the world, but I have been enlightened and it is glorious!
It is not the year 2016, it is in fact only the year 116 - wake up sheeple!2
Just finished a app for mapping printers based purely on convention in a Citrix environment, no manual config needed. Chief of operations said "it's fixing stuff like this that should trigger a bonus, too bad we're the government". (Yay, thanks for rubbing it in).
Then I responded "I'll get my reward in heaven as usual, then". CIO says: "but you're not going there...."
Guess I just need a fire extinguisher then. Thanks boss.1
Included a widget on a website (JS that adds its own code in a division, like Facebook like boxes). The script added its own CSS file that overwrites bootstrap classes, with !important and at the very end on the <head>. Even worse is that there's no alternative, its a widget from a government association and there's no API. And of course, the client insisted to have it so I had to rewrite some part to use custom classes instead of bootstrap's.1
Just another privacy rant.
I'm sick of people using the excuse "I don't care if Google keeps all my data it's just for adds"
That's true now but if you look at the current trends governments are making to forcing ISP's to store metadata, then it will be the actual data. Eventually they push that to other companises as well.
Now look at Australia for example the police don't need to notify you, let alone get a warrant, to access your metadata. There's also a law in NSW were you can be charged for accociating with a peraon commuting a crime.... Now your in jail for downloading movies years ago that you forgot about but your ISP didn't. I now that's a rather extreme punishment but, Imagine if the government needed some cash so they fine every person that ever downloaded a movie and everyone accociated with person.
Just a crazy theory with poor examplees but just because your data isn't hurting now doesn't mean it won't.
I'm gonna sit in a corner with my tin foil hat now.5
There are keyboards with built-in smartcard reader :o Can't attach a pic of it because I've seen it during a confidential process.10
Thank god there are (web) proxies.
The Turkish government is blocking access to many porn sites (which I find kind of ok - to make a barrier for the kids), but then again also German Streaming websites.
They are not blocking most German websites tho. Just the websites in the "illegal to non ethical" category (which I also find kind of OK), but it annoys me.3
People become stupid for shopping and stupid because the government here is moronic. well deserved this kind of shame
My dream is to press some random buttons on my keyboard and hack into our trashy gov as they do in the movies!2
When in an application security talk put on by our cyber security department and one team (not mine) is being chastised for only doing client side validation, another dev asks so at what point can we trust the user? A few people nod and indicate they want an answer, and the speaker, said never, you never trust the user.
I can't believe people can graduate and get a job and keep a development job, especially in a highly government regulated company like where I work2
Anyone here tried the bluewhale game?
Apparently, government banned it and local tv channel is running news about it ( around 2 months after it became viral globally ). Many overnight "experts" think it is an actual mobile application game uploaded on all stores. What a joke!
I don't understand how anyone can be stupid enough to fall for such things..3
Omg guys !.Did u read the news ? There is article 13 . Europe goverment has agreed to put new law named article 13.It means we cant upload photos if they r not original ! Omg. What are we going to do about this article 13 ? Do we start a war ?.Hm?2
Thinking of (the possible myth?) that phenomenon where you can ingest small doses of poison to build up an immunity over time, I'm convinced energy drinks are released by the government to build up our immunity to toxic bullshit because holy fuck I have never felt good during or after drinking one of those fucking things.5
Oh, me? I am so excited about all the computing power that's gonna be stolen from people who had updated their Intel CPUs last month.
I dunno what they're up to but I'm sure it's very exciting. I'm lost between Skynet and a one world government cryptocurrency mining they will use the power for.
What do you think?3
Kaspersky `hackproof` OS - now makes sure FSB gets the data first instead of NSA [for those who don't know Kaspersky has close ties with the Russian government and FSB]

That we awesome moment when you want to know your bus' ETA at the official government website and...
Last year, one of our government organizations' websites' edit page was editable without login credentials... People can easily modify or even delete a company. They had a login functionality for employees and was pretty much useless.
My local government made a website where you can check whether your registration for covid vaccination has been successful because the bureaucrats keep losing people's applications.3
Alright, so. If you had themes and things you would like to see in a cyberpunk novel what would they be? I already have corporate surveillance gone haywire, a neutered yet corrupt government, an active police state, and cyborgs. Protagonist is an on the grid citizen who is an off the grid hacker.3
I would really like to know the backstory on why Boeing just completely skipped integration testing on a craft designed to carry humans to the ISS. This seems particularly egregious and is an indicator of just how comfortable companies get when they’ve entrenched themselves with government largesse. https://orlandosentinel.com/space/...5
So the EU plans to make an "upload-filter"-law.
Actually this means that every service, every provider literally everyone has to check everything which is going to be uploaded on a webpage if there is an copyright violation and so on.
Thanks to my european government for slowing down the digital evolution in a absolutely shit way.4
Started a project..
My friend and I wanted to collaborate with our school’s student government to create a website for our school. Things went well for the first few months.
6 months later and the project is still not finished 😕
I’m having doubts on myself now, also my motivation is at its lowest point.6
I wonder a time will come when we as software developers will be on streets protesting to the government to ban use of Artificial Intelligence for writing software.
We are digging our own grave.

I had the opportunity to ask some basic security questions of a government system that is rolling out (got invited to a meeting).
So now I am absolutely terrified about any technology that is being rolled out by this particular government agency. Their security model literally ends at "we use HTTPS".
Seriously, how the fuck are these systems not audited before they reach public use? Is this normal??4
Moved from a gambling company to a government body. Got to say I'm less stressed about estimates now but more worried about standards here.

Good luck bitcoin investors, we, the South Korea government hate you investing in bitcoins.
Working with government contracts...
Them: We want an agile environment!
What they mean: Waterfall with bits and pieces of agile.
Them: We want to modernize our code!
What they mean: Oh, that is open source code from Russia or a country we don't like? No, even though it is a norm and a very powerful tool, we can't have communism here.
Them: We have a new task order for you.
What they mean: We won't approve you the money till you have a month left of the task order.3
Would you devs rather work for a government or for a company?
Please reason your answers. Thanks.10

Not sure whether to tag this as a rant or a joke, because it feels like equal parts of both. So fucking disappointed with Australian government.2
I was pondering how to help the poor, in particular the poor at the very bottom, who also want to start a business.
Since businesses create wealth, and that's a good thing..
Doing so, enables them to help others get jobs, so helping more of the poor who don't want to start businesses..
Whilst it would be nice for the government to help, my government at least, only helps those who are not relatively speaking, that poor..
Then I thought occurred to me, what about a charity.
But charities cost money to run..
And what if no one donates..
Then another thought occurred to me, what about an investment fund ?
It risks helping poor folk with money in exchange for say, 50% of their profits, if they make any !
Said investment fund would also help the startups with advice / guidance /etc.
My passport is expired and I need it soon, another way for the government to take more of my time and money
(Yes ultimately it's my own fault but still fuuuuuuuuck)2
i received a job offer to work at area 51 on extremely sophisticated projects primarily as a c++ engineer. this is the highest pay offer i have ever seen, which i can not discuss right now, but what else to expect when you work for the government. i have bad perception about this. should i take this job or refuse?5
Working in the government debugging usually starts with “have you tried it in IE? If yes, try it in something else. If no, try it in IE.”
Oh 2024 please deliver us from this hellscape which the heathens before me have wrought.2
Government sending me advertisements of some fucking foundation offering payment terminal offers.
Living the times where even own country tries to fuck you using your tax money.
Stepped into a government facility and what do I hear in the background? Dial up. No wonder it's taking forever to have a single number called.2
FUCK THE GOVERNMENT!!!

So this happened at a government organised 24 hour Hackathon. We had to store documents uploaded from the front end. Now we’ve been trying for a very log time but everything failed (yeah we had a crappy front end guy). Then all hell broke loose when the our team leader in hi sleep deprived state deleted our git repository while I wondered why my pushes were throwing a 404. When hell felt near we came up with the solution to encode the documents in base64 and store it in the database since we only had to show a demo😂.
Sadly enough, WE LOST. Although in retrospect it comes as no surprise.2
Kazakhstan Government issues certificates for MITM attacks on the public. WTF !!!
As a Brazilian we are taught early in school that the government postal service is one of the best in the world.
It took the stickers more than a month to get here.
This is a rant and a thanks to @dfox
I've been absent but that's because I'm not getting as frustrated nowadays, that's because I know someone in devrant is going through something worse than I am1
I know someone that’s constantly paranoid about being spied on by the government and fears companies stealing his code e.g. github, Microsoft etc.
do nothing until we find a secure platform to write code on so that our ‘billion dollar ideas don’t get stolen’
Suffice to say that he’s a very bad coder, not that I’m really that good but compared to him I’m light years ahead.1
Gets an email from some random thing from the government
Clicks the unsubscribe button which redirects me to send a email with the subject "UNSUBSCRIBE email@example.com"
I think to myself that it's a rather strange way to do it but I assume it's automated...
10 minutes later, 1 new email:
"Thank you got getting in touch with us, blah blah. we'll get back to you as soon as possible - automated email"
Between this and GDPR, were going to create a great firewall that will just block all network traffic to the EU. They don’t get how the internet works. Government shouldn’t touch things1
Today, the goverment of wkwk land block telegram. Any ISP from wkwk land has been blocking telegram starting today by the government command.
I was so sad about this, lot of community are using telegram. But i'm happy too because my company using telegram 😂 which means no more annoying message on the morning.
*ps: my boss maybe seeing this rant7
Just started week two of this internship and still no computer access... I only have 3 weeks left here so this better pick up quickly3
When talking about contracts for like free Lance work do you like make them yourself or do you like need a legally binding one from the government?1
Trying to get my head round LDAP for , what will eventually be, a government project.
Security up the wazoo is difficult1
So... I might have to build a survey and analysis tool to be used online nation wide (the final client is the government).
The bad news, it's probably going live in a week.
Even though 90% I wrote and tested in the last 3 years (matrixes,formulas,dB, Interface elements ) from previous runs, I have to handle fronted, databases, math, testing and design.
Over a daily changing methodology and session workflow (by my direct client).
No sleep for the next few days 😭6
And so begins week 3 of 5 without full computer access. I'm able to do some research needed but I'm still very limited. The only programs I can use are IE11, and the three basic MS Office programs. Oh well... at least I'm still getting paid by the hour1
Realizing my currently degree plan will not transfer to a 4 year university where I can get my bachelors, I have decided to stop taking all tech classes and focus on the classes that will transfer such as English, Calc, History and Government.5
So I just heard that Bitcoins are illegal in my country. Like WTF? This is outrageous! Are you that much of a control freak that you couldn't allow a cryptocurrency to run, government? You and your taxes and shits!!! Ughhhh!
On another note, the cryptocurrency is indeed growing its boundaries. What are your opinions on it? Do you think maybe one day it will replace all conventional form of currency as we know it today? If yes, how long will it take?6
Low-end smartphones sold to Americans with low-income via a government-subsidized program contain unremovable malware, security firm Malware bytes said in a report.
According to the report of ZdNet: The smartphone model is Unimax (UMX) U686CL, a low-end Android-based smartphone made in China and sold by Assurance Wireless. The telco sells cell phones part of a government program that subsidizes phone service for low-income Americans. "In late 2019, we saw several complaints in our support system from users with a government-issued phone reporting that some of its pre-installed apps were malicious," Malwarebytes said in a report. The company said it purchased a UMX U686CL smartphone and analyzed it to confirm the reports it was receiving.7
So I earn no money ( Only get money from the government for going to school) and I live with my parents and I am 18. Is it socially acceptable for me to not buy christmas gifts for anyone?5
I hate everything that happens in the government that has to do with the internet I've already been on multiple tangents I'm tired, cant we get people in office who actually know shit about technology?1
Stuck with arch base installation. Just after completion of base installation, Internet Blackout is imposed by government due to communal tension.
I deleted my is just to play with arch installation. Now I can't even listen music and watch movies stored on my harddisk because of arch base installation.2
Two years ago my company with local university prepared an internship program for a group of students. At the end one student was hired, but since it was government program, he also got government salary (aka the lowest possible). Today he literally BLEW UP when he found out that new recruits he was tutoring for last 3 months will earn twice as him currently.5
I don’t know what I’m most excited about for tomorrow.
Tomorrow my imbecile flatmate moves out, and we have a Christmas party at work, but I think the most exciting thing about tomorrow, is getting the keys to my own apartment tomorrow.
I still can’t believe it, a year ago I was a school dropout, got money from the government, till today, 21 years old, full time employee at mid-Norways largest production company, and buying my own apartment
Fuck the ISP and the incompetent retarded developers in the government!
The retarded ISP is injecting malware ads on all web pages which means if you access a non HTTPS site, you're gonna get fucked.
And the retarded government site still do not have HTTPS version for the websites!
The biggest irony is that this particular government site is for developers to register for courses ( paid ) about latest technologies.1
Got my devRant-letter today, it arrived pre-opened and taped back together with two strips.. anyone else got it this way?
40 hours straight. It was brutal and I won’t repeat that thing ever again. A government regulation at the last minute forced us to change parts of our financial backend
At the parking garage downtown.
Reported issues with 4th floor "down" arrow buttons for the elevator a couple of times. Elevator and inside buttons still worked fine.
A couple of weeks later, elevator is turned off.2
Yes. It effect when working in foreign country. The Government ask for basic Graduation for visa purpose.
And now Bell (among others) is pushing to censor the Internet in Canada, too. Why adjust their failing business model when they can just whine and complain, and have the government smash out the competition for them?
Thanks, America. Always paving the way to a big, fat cauldron of shit at the end of the capitalist rainbow.4
Oh no, apparently GDPR is worse than we thought. Just look at the linked thread. The government needs not to touch anything
Local government promoting the development of social apps! The only good thing that they have done :)1
Telegram is blocked in my country 😭
The web version is no longer accessible but the mobile app still available, but it just a matter of time6
About to submit a form to get a scholarship to a government website, and guess what. Errors everywhere. Why are they like this? These government websites are also known to be very vulnerable to hackers2
At my IT security job(yeah, it sucks sometimes. I want a dev job but that's another story).
Needed to help some end users use and install a toolbar and get it to download through a proxy so they can edit stupid government online forms, which only supports IE 11. Obviously it didn't work.
Wait a MOTHETFUCKING MINUTE.
It's 2017. What the fuck. Who the fuck uses fucking toolbars anymore.
How fucking retarded and out of touch with reality the government can be, when it forces its users to download a fucking toolbar(with admin priviliges!) and use fucking IE 11 just to access a basic feature of the website.
Another fucking proof that governments are cancer and we need Anarcho-capitalism ASAP.2
What the fuck is it with the fucking giant spaghetti files?
C'mon, unique 20000+ CSS file for the entire platform, multiple 10000+ c# "multi-business" logic files, code repeated everywhere, not to speak about most of the business logic being on these hundreds of massive SQL SPs...
On every single client, from banks to government 🤬4
that moment when you decide to become and indie app dev and there are plenty of guides that tell how to be a good indie dev but no guides that teach you how not to get fucked by your own government...2
In light of recent events...
What do you guys think about a technocratic government?
Seems like our current system needs some debugging...11
So now you have to upload a government issued ID for access to the Pages API on Facebook?
What a fucking joke Facebook. Just because you screwed with customer's data, you're now making us do this.4
I don't really care that the government is watching me scream at my TV during the Bachelorette finale. If they want to watch me get way too emotionally invested in a staged relationship circus, let them watch.2
You would think that the top information gathering government agency would be having their https certificate configured properly but apparently not...
I love to tinker with electronics and different embedded boards. For some guys its like I'm hacking government or something. Why everything is always about hacking with people?2
I heard a rumour that India's government is planning to make COW as the official programming language.
What a time to me alive! /s2
Recently, I launched a website to practice and perfect a lightweight Larval CMS that is forcing me to learn Databases and good sanitization practices.
Trolling Zuckerberg's Facebook for Images to make potential MeMes, I can't help but notice he has quite a ridiculous and unrealistic amount of instances in which he seems to be talking to military and government officials.
Figured I'd use the old humor as a weapon to shed light upon this.
What do you mean by you'll shut down the government?!! The government will go on a fucking strike!!? How the fuck does that work?!! You can't make people pass laws by blackmailing that you'll stop doing your job that's so critical to the country!! You are the fucking president!!
Indian politics and laws are not perfect either... But I can't really imagine a prime minister here pulling shit like this!! Not that if I can't imagine it can't happen... Indian politicians know how to stopping lower and lower! But dafuq is that baffoon of a leader thinking!?6
Well...looks like the FCC got their way. If there wasn’t enough proof that the interests of the average citizen don’t matter to our government...there you have it. Hopefully these people get the comeuppance they so deserve.3
Opinions please. When end user is not paying for service, who is my customer? For example public facing government project2
We got an email today which stated that if the government closes schools, everyone has to work from home. Well, it just do happens that from midnight this will be the case. This is going to be funny, my computer is unbelievably crappy and it will barely be able to run the project itself, let alone Webstorm & Co. But at least I can sleep as long as I want!4
Dealing with government bureaucracy today. Prepare for pure anger.
First of all, what fucking dipshit site does testing and maintenance in production without letting users know? Bitch I'm getting an invalid date error when I use your own stupid date selector and I had to waste the office lady's time asking about it because you couldn't be arsed to either test your shit properly or actually take it down if it's broken. Who made that stupid ass decision and why the fuck did nobody question it. Fuck you.3
Is privacy really that big a deal some of the more tin-foil hats make it out to be? Look at Estonia, their government knows every last detail about an individual citizens life. Result: they are basically in a golden age as everything is efficient as there is zero red tape. This is what technology can achieve if we don’t bog ourselves down with non-issues2
Ant.design repo and website just got deleted. It‘s still on npm and there is a mirror on a chinese github fake but this is serious.
I have the weird feeling that this is a political issue.
I will not use or support platforms that are under control of the chinese government (gitee).
The only right thing to do now seems to ditch Ant.d (at least in future projects). Maybe I shouldn‘t trust or use chinese software at all.5
Anyone want to help me debug some legacy code that hasn't gotten enough attention lately?
The US government could really use some help. Maybe we could debug it and present our findings to Trump, our all powerful carrot overlord.1
What's your current remote work policy?
Our CEO said we have to go back to office next week, despite government strongly recommends to work from home. He says "I don't care what government says, government is not paying our salaries. We need to produce value in this company!"
Today I'm finally gonna do my taxes! Time to see how much more I need to pay the dysfunctional government 😟😤😞😖
What tax software do you recommend using (US)?6
For those in the UK, go give the government a ass cramp by petitioning the snoopers' charter https://petition.parliament.uk/peti...3
Net neutrality is tyranny disguised as freedom.
Anti-net neutrality is freedom that is wrongly perceived as greed and tyranny.
Who pushes the net neutrality agenda? The same companies who spy on you, emasculate and degenrate society, pro-big government.
Yes ISP's are monopolistic and greedy. But it can change and it will change once the market is truly free from government regulations who nurtured the monopolies in the first place. Just be patient.
Governments can't rule society forever. Freedom is stronger. Civilization moves forward to Minarchism, then to Anarchism.
Long live the free market4
Our government is trying to corrupt internet connections so it is about 2 hours I am uploading a song.
I'm not that give up type of person because I am a programmer and soon it will be comepletely uploaded too. 💪
No, they didn't supported and infact are source of major problems in my dev and college career. Just granpa and dad, they wanted me to go for government jobs. Whenever they saw me with laptop they will say things like, you are ruining your future, this won't be asked in exams etc. They are good at manipulation too and sadly they won. Forced me to take civil engineering as it makes you eligible for most government jobs. I didn't knew what was going on my mind back then, and why i listened to such peices of shits. Real bad decision.
[...] All session data is encrypted using (salted) AES-256, the same encryption algorithm used by the U.S. Government to protect TOP SECRET data. [...]
FUCK!! But perfect for Netflix!! ;)4
Worst part of being a dev:
When I have to explain how the systems we are forced to use by the government work, or help friends and family use them, because they are super unintuitive.. Yes, NemID, I'm looking at you! 💩💩💩1
Just saw a post of lolcube that he lost 20 bucks.
Made me think how digital money should work. I mean, is it possible? Bitcoins are a great idea, but putting the environment under huge stress. Is there any way of digitalising your money, without handing over a government the means of completely shutting your purchase power down remotely? And doing so without being an environmental nightmare?
I actually know little about crypto currencies, so enlighten me, devranters!3
Any of you started thinking about second income? I started learning business on my free time, like forex, government bonds and investment.
What you are ways for second income? Lately, I started thinking about being financially independent5
I work in a team that's predominately ASP.NET MVC when it comes to web development. We're merging with another government agency 's development and they're using Node.js.
So I figure that I should make an effort and learn Node.js as I've only had minimal exposure to it.
After five minutes discover that corporate proxy prevents access to npm. Oh well, never mind!4
I am thinking of doing a government system that runs on blockchain
Any thoughts on a platform i could use and documentation
Trying to get maps api Street view to work.
30 mins later. Still no progress.

And what does he see?4
So my government is proposing a new National ID scheme. This will be used to identify s citizen as well as keep track of property, taxes etc.
Parliament just started the debate on how it would work today. It’s set to be implemented by December 2019. My government tends not think things through so as to prevent s disaster like what’s happening in the Netherlands as per @linuxxx musings, I’m trying to gather insight from the industry to compose a document of considerations then getting a law firm to draft the laws it would need to compliment it9
So, today until Sunday, a fairly general strike is going on based on how our government wants to set up our pension or something..
Now I have to call and wake up my friggin' dad to bring me to work, and probably come and get me too...
That's not all, even.. most people still go to work by car, generating a lot of traffic...
Will I be too late at work today? Probably.
Let's hope the government starts an initiative to get rid of fake editors. All the mainstream alternative editors will be banned from discussion in social media. People have to think critical and realize that there is only one editor: vi.1
Oh my goodness! Philippines what are you thinking? You know "our" country is going to host the SEAG you should've started the preparation since last year. This is the problem "sometimes" in Philippine government. Those at top (management) thinks since it is IT, it would be easy to source out. This is also one reason why the IT Professionals from private looks down to Government IT.
Lecturer : Today you can save data into the internet.
The internet is not a storage device 🤦♂️
Correct terminology when talking to computer science finalists too much to ask?
And we complain about the government.1
Has anybody here worked recently with Talend Open Studio? am I the only one who find it incredible tedious? I feel like every task is like filling a government form by hand. I've desperately searched for a Talend Hate Group and nothing, I can't be the only one.....
I guess this is a mix of Rant/Question.
I mean, I'm very young so I do not remember any time at all in which there was no computers at home. What I do remember is that I used a government educational software with some games when I started using computers. Then the internet came and it has stayed ever since
Does anyone have recommendations for a good offsite backup solution that’s like student-level cheap (or preferably free) that allows you to keep control over your data (I don’t want to upload my stuff to google drive or the like for privacy and government surveillance reasons as I’m sure @linuxxx would understand).14
I really admire and respect devs here in our country that are helping to build useful apps to combat covid-19 pandemic but please, if the National Government already has this kind of applications or in their pipeline (covid contact tracing, qrcode checkpoint, assistance, etc..) please do not try to hijack by creating similar app and market it. Instead of helping it creates confusion on which info to follow (ie DOH tracking) and which to use. #random2
Learning Azure fundamentals but, why do I need to learn about the very specific USA Government & China regions? How is that going to help me? Only people employed by USA gov or China has access to them. Why is this fundamental?1
I'd rather expose my data to TikTok than have the US government completely ban them here. What a joke.15
Does anyone here have experience working as a senior developer in a web Application development company with less than 15 employee's and having around 5 - 6 developers? can you tell me what are the roles and expectation of graduate developers in such company? I landed a job(my first job ever) in such a company and I am working on 4 customer facing projects at a time including one massive government project. lot of pressure!!3
