Just got picked up for a project. 20,000+ code base, no comments, no docs, variable names like x, xx, xxx, no function name conventions, and a mishmash of Czech, French and English class names.
I thought this job was too good to be true. #fml4

Call between Me and IT Assistant Guy working @ the Ministry of Education in my Country:

IT guy: Have you tried turning off and on your computer?

I suffer with anxiety.
I took pills (pristiq), but side effects almost ended with my marriage.
And now I'm having more problems. Even a message from my boss trigger me and I can't think properly.
I have a good job and small mini projects and I enjoy playing games
How do you deal with anxiety?6
This is the first time I've been on a project with a developer that is incredibly slow. Almost an entire month has passed, and this particular developer is still working on a story. In fact, it's the only story the devs picked up.
I work for a consulting organisation, and this particular developer and I are the only ones engaged on this project.
I am also the senior developer. I have tried numerous times to help speed things up by suggesting if there are blockers to hit me up so we can get it resolved.
At this point, I'm not entirely sure what to do. Should I report this back to the company I work for, or should I shut my mouth and say nothing because it isn't my problem?3
I wanna rewrite a small php site with a microframework. So far, I've found Silex and Lumen an interesting choice, but I can't decide which one to go with, since both are new to me. Though I'm using Symfony a lot and haven't use Laravel yet and these micro ones are their lite editions, I'd choose Silex but Lumen seems better at first glance, so I'm uncertain. Which one do you suggest?8
You see, I was never really good at C. It felt too low-level for me to enjoy.
Right now, I'm forced to do a school project with C. For the last ~10 compilations, I've gotten no errors, contrary to my first prior experience.
Maybe I'm getting better at C.
Or maybe C is getting the better of me.
Thanks for reading, I'm rly tired.2
I'm leadering a small team, it's my second team. What books will helpme to become a great manager?11
I was trying to format my backup drive (/dev/sdb)
Was focused on eating also at the same time
Wrote sudo fdisk /dev/sda and didn't notice and changed the partition type to GPT(although it was already like that)
I gave me message that will do on next reboot
My dumb mind didn't suspect, instead rebooted (facepalm)
Lost all my data
Instead of trying to recover was quick to install OS
Permanently lost my data
Help me I need hopes and tricks to move on
How did you cope up with yourself once you lost all your data?2
I saw somewhere here a super tutorial to devrant tags, can you link me it? It had a picture with no/yes connected blocks.
Search is not really helping to find it so far4
Ok guys I kinda need your help. I have to write a python project for my school in 3 days and instead of saving everything in files I want to have a database. So my question is can you suggest the most simplest and easiest db to create and connect to Python for a few simple tables. Also the easiest to set up on another computer since my professor will probably want to try it at home.
Also I have to learn Python in 3 days, since I already know a couple of languages, I'm confident I can pull it off. Why I'm asking for help is I need to document it all, that will probably take a chunk out of these 3 days.5
How difficult is it to create a custom 401 page in apache while requiring basic auth for the web root. I cant work out how to allow just the file /401.php
I keep getting:
Additionally, a 401 Unauthorized error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I've tried the following
ErrorDocument 401 /401.php
AuthName "Site Under Construction - Dev Only"
Allow from all
What am I doing wrong2
am I the only one switching between dark and light theme in my IDEs depending on my mood and the outside temperature?
today definitely light!4
At first I got this crappy project which 400 users HAVE TO use but NO ONE WANTS to use - with ASP.Net MVC, ASP.NET MVVM (Yes, both!), KENDO MVVM, KENDO UI, JQUERY and not a single line of typescript or modern web framework...
After I told them, that was not why I was hired and not what I was promised, they told me in summer I will get this brand new project, not a single line of code written.
Every new project of my company in the last 2 years was in React / Redux / Typescript and ASP.Net Core WebAPI - So I invested a bunch of weekends to get into it to be able to lead such a new project!
Today I recieved a Email from my boss, that because "we have to be on the same stack as the sister-project" we will use jquery and kendo mvvm....
What the fuck...
Right now I just want to finish installing and fixing the bugs of Android Studio. I can't use it yet. The java executable that comes with Android Studio has a major issue (Linux Version). I drool over the IDE and what I'll be able to do-after the bug is gone, that is. Btw, this has stopped me for months now. CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH THIS BUGGY MONSTER?
Please help me, I need a vertical mouse but the mice I see are trash, they last for a few months, please help.
I need it to have adjustable dpi via software, left/right button/mouse wheel and no more than that.12
I want to learn a new front and back end webdev language. So far, I've found Dart and TypeScript (though this one is not completely new to me) on the front end side, and Go, Elixir and Rust on the back end side. As I don't have too much free time, I can choose one of both sides for now, but I can't decide which ones to go with, since I can read so many pro-contra opinions.
I only need to choose for the skill, I don't have any specific target, I just want to learn new stuff.
Which ones do you suggest?
