CS Professor: “What M word is the black hole to all productivity?”
CS Professor: “Was going to say meetings but that’s better”13
A little while ago someone here posted something about a piece of software called Pi-Hole. To that person, i wanted to say THANK YOU!!! It is probably one of the best things i ever added to my network!26
So our public transportation company started to sell tickets online with their brand new fancy system.
• You can buy tickets and passes for the price you want
• Passwords are in plaintext
• Communication is through HTTP
• Login state are checked before the password match so you can basically view who is online
• Email password reminders security code can be read from servers response
Oh and I almost forgot admin credentials are FUCKING admin/admin
Who in the fucking name of all gods can commit such idiocracy with a system that would be used by almost millions of people. I hope you will burn in programming hell. Or even worse...
I'm glad I'm having a car and don't have to use that security black hole.17
Found a security hole....
A fast food delivery service had an ID for every order it Said
"example.com/order/9237" - i go 9236... finds another persons order, address, and phone number
So What should i do?
i thought of making a crawler and then make statistics on everyones orders and send Them a link 😂20
Client : your design is not cool. See this ^
*showed me some pretty neat designs pattern*
Me: which type do you want for your application.?
Client : All are pretty cool. Isn't it?
Me : Yes. But you do not need all of them. Right?
Client : Yes.
Me : So, which one.
Client : I'm confused But, this will do.
Me : Sure?
Client : Yes, very much.
After 3 days.
Client : you know what, earlier one was simple one but, best one. Easy to understand. This is (new design) making it complex. I need previous one.
Me : (I knew you'll say that, a**hole.) Just go to setting and select theme section to earlier version.
Client : thank you man.
Me : (You are red listed in my book you a**hole. Say anything else to add/edit and then see.) You are welcome.6
Took an interview today.
Guy(5+ years of UI exp) - It's neither of them. It just runs on browser.
At that moment I slowly started fading away into a black hole for the absolute peace and embrace death.15
CTO: "You must write good tests with high coverage, ideally use TDD. We need confidence in our releases."
Also CTO: *Secretly commits code changes directly to master at 3am, breaks tests, skips CI, publishes, tells no-one*8
Hollywood be like
"Oh no they shot a hole in my CPU, let me just rewrite the code so that it works again. I'll be 5 minutes."14
"Did you get my email?"
No, your email got sucked into the black hole that is the vast and mysterious internet. It's gone forever.
Yes, I got your email. I'm ignoring it because I can only handle one stupid coworker's request at a time. Take a number.6
That moment when the development manager says "nothing is impossible"
And then starts to spend the whole day assigning the new tasks.1
I swear watching the dumb kids in my CS class programming and asking me why it's not working and blaming the computer is like, you know that toy every kindergarten had where you put the shapes in its hole in a box,yeah it's like watching them trying to RAM A FUCKING SQUARE INTO THE DAMN CIRCLE! 😤2
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. I SPEND HOURS INVESTIGATING INCOMING & OUTGOING DATA. I CHECKED ALL THE CODE, I EVEN TEAMVIEWED A CUSTOMER WHICH WAS HAVING SOME ISSUES WITH MY APP.
TURNS OUT I FORGOT A FUCKING '/' IN MY FUCKING CODE. WHICH MEANS THE HOLE GODDAMN API URL MAKES NO SENSE.
WHY THE FUCK DO I ALWAYS OVERCOMPLICATE SHIT LIKE THIS.
It was a boring day and I was about to ssh into my server and this guy comes up to me, stares at my screen and when I turned back
He asks me "Have you tried deep in ur ass?"
*People around started looking at us*
I was like wtf! Got out from my chair and looked in his face "wtf did you just ask me?"
"Deepin, Deeepin OS! "
"Say that again u dumb fukkk and I will fucking slam ur face into the wall!"
Fucking confuses every time!!7
I have a pi-hole setup in my network for ad and tracker blocking and am dual-booting my pc.
I recently noticed just how much data windows really is trying to gather from my machine.
So I took the pi-hole graph and you can VERY clearly see the os switch. All this useless traffic coming from windows. (This is with all the privacy relevant options inside the settings already turned off!)17
Although I do give some privacy related advice here and there on here, I'm planning on hiring a server dedicated to devRant regarding privacy/tiny simple tools.
I've got the folloing in mind:
- Host the privacy website
- Put a pi-hole server on it for everyone to use
- Own IP lookup API which would display it in a few data formats.
Any other ideas?75
It's very satisfying to setup Pi-Hole on a vps, point your dns to it, adding the words Facebook and Google to the wildcard blacklist and seeing that literally any request containing either one of those words gets blocked.
On the other hand, it's funny to see that devRant (devrantron) performs around 1k+ requests to devRant every 15 minutes.19
>give person jailed access to my server.
>person breaks out, and notifies me.
>i fix the hole
>three weeks later i decide hes trustworthy enough and the jail is causing too many problems so i give him unjailed access
>first thing he does is crash the system
albeit unintentionally, but seriously?1
$Me: *whispers* Do you like it rough baby?
$Her: *moans* uhuh
$Me: *continues whispering* I'm gonna implement a dynamic programming algorithm for you.
$Her: ahhhhhhh yaass *looses control of her body*
Fictional scenario of course I'd never implement shit for nobody who isn't paying.4
The story of Netscape and Internet Explorer really proves the irony of fate! And how life will come back to bite you.
Back in the 90's you had to pay for browsers like Netscape (it was called a navigator but same thing) but after Microsoft released IE for free with your windows copy in 2002 it crushed Netscape and nobody used it anymore (the graph below).
But! Netscape wouldn't give up and before the company died after it made legal accusations against Microsoft and Bill Gates and made them pay for that they did, but Netscape was too far gone and already were falling apart they decided to make a self detonation (I guess that's what they thought being in that tight corner) and they released the code as open source which would later get taken by Mozilla and be the code base for Firefox.
Now look at how much better Firefox is and how nobody uses the shitty IE!
Kind of reminds me of the scene from watchmen where Rorshack was in prison and said the best sentence in the movie "I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here WITH ME!"21
I had an internship in a company for a month, after two weeks they want me to stay for paid internship for the lenght of my final year of studies! Feels amazing!
Staring tommorow! :D2
My friend once told me an incident.
One day he was using Ubuntu and his 10 years old niece, who was only familiar with Windows, saw him using terminal.
She then said this, in an amused tone:
Oh my god Ubuntu is really smart. In Windows I have to point to things to make it understand. But here we can talk to the computer and it obeys?
I think she's right !! :)
Linux is like black hole. Once in, never out !!3
"we don't plan on fixing a huge security hole that allows for root on our one server that runs our million-dollar service"4
Best ad-blocking solution ?
FUCK NO !!!!
Pi-hole and modify ad-block filters to block only youtube ads !!
Now sites are not able to know that im blocking ads because pi-hole is DNS based and youtube doesnt care about it.12
Walk in on the first day and am told: "We don't have a computer for you yet and we're not sure where you're going to be sitting so just hang around for a bit."
"Ok...what will I be doing?"
"We're discussing that."
"So I'm to be spackle, then?"
"You'll use me once you see a hole that needs filling."5
On stackoverflow *Peoople be like*
- How can I write a stream into a hole to extract light with magnetic energy -
and I'm trying to make my navigation bar in every screen with Java 😂1
"please use a secure password*"
* But don't make it too secure, 20 Charakters is enough.
Why would you fucking do this? The only reason I can think about is a scenario like this:
"How do we store the passwords in the database?"
"Just like anything else?"
"So I create a VARCHAR(20)?"
"Yeah why not? It's good enough for a name, and you shouldn't use your or anyone else's name as a password, so it should be perfect"10
There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
and the scum of the world inhabit it
and its morals aren't worth what a pig can spit
and it's filled with people who are filled with shit
and it goes by the name of EU...
At the top of the hole sit a privileged few
making mockery of the vermin in the lower zoo
turning beauty to filth and greed...
by passing shit like article 11, 13, and 17.

Everyone in family and friends allways ask me "You're a programmer and know a lot about computer, so why you're not in Facebook/Twitter/Instagram?"
My answer: We create these services for you (average people) we don't use them ourselves. It's a security hole to put your information in public.7
It's pretty good deal, if you ask me !!
Gotta buy one, so that I can be online even after I'm dead, earth gets destroyed, sun gets turned into Black hole and collision of milky way and Andromeda Galaxies.14
When my partner in a project has a sudden change of heart and confesses to the the professor that he cheated and we both get a negative mark(-8 marks) even though i didn't know or participate in cheating 😡5
Handed in my project today on one of those circular disks with a hole in it 🤔.
It felt so nostalgic, haven't touched such a thing in many many years. The sound of the disk turning inside the computer when we run it as a test was pretty great.9
Today I fell down the rabbit hole.
I've been writing some automated tests which found an asymmetry in our algorithm which I think is caused by an off by 1 in even input dimensions.
Change input to odd dimensions, crash due to out of bounds exception.
Switch to debug mode to try to work out why we crash, failing asserts for default function arguments with no obvious reason beyond a helpful message saying they're unsupported.2
The deeper I go down the infosec rabbit hole, the more I worry about my doctors still using Windows XP. Why would you save sensitive patient info in those....shoe boxes?4
There is a hole in the world like a great black pit and it is filled with people who developed Eclipse.3
One of my former client has refused to pay the remaining balance. I dedicate this to that ass(donkey)hole.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.10
So after fucking around with trying to setup pi-hole to block avatars in devrant, so I could just use it instead of a no-root firewall and accidentally deleting the devrant app data, I discovered this little option, let's pretend it was never there 🙄7
Devrant has a big security hole... Just post "Which is better, Linux, Windows or Mac os?"
The internet will crash13
YouTube: Wait 5 seconds to skip this ad.
Me: Ooo this ad looks interesting.
*Watches for 15 seconds*
Me: Nah I'll watch my video now.
*Presses "Skip Ad"*
YouTube: Oh you like ads? How bout I give you another one right away? And this time you can't skip it!
(For those wondering, I usually don't mind YouTube ads. I have Pi-hole running on my network to block other ads)7
My worst choice was walking out of my first ever job.
The owner of the company was a very kind person and he really liked and appreciated my work, he even gave me a mid level salary straight away even though I was still in college and didn't have any prior experience.
But when I found myself getting so lucky I thought "oh it's so easy to get a job I can get one whenever I want" then I quit the job for college as I didn't want to do both at the same time due to stress.
The funny thing is that when I quit I didn't even focus on college, I just used the money (which was a lot) to go out and buy stuff I don't need and I even failed a course in the next semester after I was one of the top students in school.3

Starmie and Stubble.
Gaping hole of Doom.
Creatin and RoidRage.
what the last windows update did to me:
- BROKE the fucking SPEAKERS so i have NO SOUND even WITH HEADPHONES. the only pair that work is a bluetooth one that i used before
- RESET ALL OF MY BIOS SETTINGS. this includes intel haxm so now the FUCKING AVD WON'T WORK.
- BROKE my FINGERPRINT SENSOR, so now i cant use the side of my pinky to login.
FUCK YOU MICROSOFT.
GO SUCK BILL GATES'S COCK.

You left me a tiny hole to look through, I can’t even PUT FUCKING AWAY that garbage and you expect me to trust you on design! Fuck you!3
Lesson number 1 on 3D printing.
Tighten your fucking nuts every 2 weeks.
The fucking infill will shake the printer to its death if you dont. I was wondering why my X axis was rotated to the left a lot. Leveling sensor didnt read the bed and crashed into it hard making a hole in it.
So if you have a 3D printer and you didnt tighten the nuts. GO FUCKING DO IT NOW !!!!10
!rant && !!rant
☝️ What does that give you?
Today will be the last day we gonna work at this fucking hellhole of an office. Since I had so many shits to remember from this office, let me share my favorite.
1) Ground floor. Got flooded last July. Half our equipments got soaked. Oh equipments as in computers, cables, reports documents, etc etc.
2) I am gonna miss those connection down days.
3) I will also miss those black out days where we couldn't work for hours so had to play teamwork games to keep the morale of the team and you know to stay awake.
4) I will also miss that fucking mouse or rat. You are small and cute but fuck you for chewing my potato chips and peanuts. A-hole.
5) No windows so with no air-conditioning, it is a literal hell hole.
Gotta stop. I might cry.17
NO! I DO NOT WANT YOUR SLUTTY USB IN MY LAPTOP'S HOLE, It's probably infected by all those computers of people installing every single program on earth.13
I recently started naming my devices in a certain scheme:
Laptop - Sagittarius (central black hole in the milky way)
Server - Sirius (brightest star visible from Earth)
Pi - Centauri (closed star system to us)
Any iot devices would be named like unnamed planets (i.e. Centauri A, Centauri B, ...)
Do some of you have cool/interesting naming schemes for your devices?17
Fuck Apple right in the eye hole for trying (and probably succeeding) to normalize phone pricing at hundreds of dollars above the current market. This is going to make Android OEMs follow suit, and the world gets a little shittier for everyone.6
My raspberry Pi finally arrived ☺️! Now i just have to set it up... Any advice on what linux distro i should put on it? (i will use it as a NAS, torrent server and pi hole)7
So, packing up and leaving this hell hole.
In the end I just said that I had 2 panic attacks in the last week, and that I am leaving for medical reasons.7
Other than being an a**hole, Linus. Guy changed computing as we know it with a little pet project59

For the love of God. Please stop trying to make me download your shitty mobile app. I don’t have room, and I don’t want it. I just want to read the content that YOU SENT TO ME (looking at you, Quora). Nice way to make sure I unsubscribe and never come back. An unclosable pop up on mobile that just has a button to your mobile app while I have limited data and patience doesn’t do it for me. Fuck whoever came up with THAT brilliant decision.1
Make sure you can RECOVER from your backups.
It's all well and good backing this and that up, but make sure that when the shit really hits the fan you can recover.
I've now 4 days into recovering a raspberry pi that ran:

Be careful when you go down the rabbit hole of creating custom observables (rxJS).
I wasted half a day just to find out that there are hot and cold observables and that the whole time I tried to use the wrong one.
It finally works. 01:00 in the morning.
My boss will be proud when he pulls the changes and the code looks completely fucked up (clean, well structured code, but he doesn't really know observables).
Now something different: Sleep. Cya.
Me: soooo can you get this done by next week?
Other dev: well who knows what rabbit hole I'll fall down. There's no way to tell.
Me: can you just avoid falling down a rabbit hole? We have a deadline.
Other dev: oh ya there's no way to know for sure.
Me: ....... Can you please try harder
Other dev: I'm trying I can't.
For any complex project start simple by doing the MVP (minimum viable product) then build on it and change it until it reaches what you want in time.

This happened today
My Manager: How is the progress so far on the search module?
Me(After implementing some crazy shit requirements): It's all set. APIs are working well against the mock in-memory database. I need an actual database to run my unit tests. Where do we have it?
My manager: Let's pretend that there is no database at this moment. Go-ahead with rest of your activities.
Me(IN MY MIND): F*CK you a** hole. You don't know the first thing of software development! Which a** hole promoted you as a manager!!!
Me(TO HIS FACE): Ah.. okay!! As you wish!3

Listening to Microsoft try to explain that activex was the future and was not a gigantic security hole.

So glad that shit is dead, but man did it cause ten years of dumpster fires4
Once again, another weekend I promised myself to start programming projects, only to step through a worm hole and wake up on Monday.
Vue vs React...
Which one do you guys use or like better?
I'm been dabbling in Vue and like it so far...just wondering if I'm putting myself in a pigeon hole against a 'more widely adopted and stable' framework
I swear, the next time I hear a web developer say to me: "Yeah let's pretend as if the security hole in the website isn't there, because truth be told, i cannot be bothered to fix it."4
I want to know what brings you Joy while programming/coding?
I've been trying to catch that certain feeling...
For me it's having everything make sense and a logical flow through the code and it works every if it is adding two vars.
And please definitely not the money if you're coding for money then you're not enjoying it.14
So we had a class that should have 2 states 0 or 1, you think my coworker would be smart enough to represent it with a Boolean? NO!
Represent the state inside the object as an int then when using the object in a function creates a Boolean that determines the state of the object and after the function done it's job THEN call another function that takes the object and the Boolean and change the int state inside the object depending on the Boolean.
Wouldn't it have been whole lot easier to just you know..... Make the state a Boolean from the start.
When I saw this I knew I was witnessing a miracle of the human mind. God bless!
Ps: it wasn't connected to any kind of API nor server and there are never more than 2 states. It's just some local sequential code so don't assume it had a logical reason it's just a fuck up.5
Step 1: Acquire Rasbpery Pi
Step 2: Install Rasbian Lite
Step 3: Install PiHole
Step 4: Setup VPN
Step 5: Get a domain name for the VPN server
Step 6: Install OpenVPN on Phone

*gets flagged by moderator cunt for using my nickname, one that I've been using on that account for 3 years*
WELL THANK YOU QUORA FOR THE APPRECIATION!! I'll TOTALLY contribute some fucking more next time!!! You know what, whoever flagged my account? Exchange your lube for bleach, and go fuck yourself with a cactus. Don't forget to use the new lube! Pour it in that glory hole like there's no tomorrow! Fucking piece of shit.5
Was annoyed about the new repeating ads on 9gag.
Installed Pi-hole on my raspi.
No more adds on any device in my network.6
Got fucking graduated, a whole day wasted, fucking ass hole literally trapped us cannot even got to release some water.
To get a fucking degree you have to bear with fucking teacher who don't shit about privacy, security.
And answering fucking theroy questions which has fucking string Match with the fucking textbook paragraph.
Do a fucking report which will be fucking 100 pages and take fucking 2 copy (10 rough copies)
The register to fucking leaky placement centre. Who leak you data to all hiring companies as well as your co-students.
Then fucking attend the fucking ass hole ceremony where some old guy lectures for fucking long time about some civil infrastructure , road and other stuff.
And I have not mentioned other fucking ass hole slutty stuff.i don't know fucking until what time I can hold on.

The everything is Data science craze trend.
Honestly it's not even sustainable with every kid and their grandmother wanting to be data scientists because it's a 'passion' and a 'dream job' and all of that click bait stuff.
It's just become ridiculous at this point and I doubt we'll even have the long awaited 'breakthroughs' people have been talking about for so long.
Also I have a strong feeling everyone thinks it's their 'passion' because it tops the lists of highest paid jobs out there and everyone thinks with 3 months of training they're a fully fledged data scientist because some Python or R package implements all the algorithms he could ever think of using.
Add to that the fact that most advertised data science jobs are actually data engineering where you maintain a date store and that's it.
Agree or disagree that's my piece and if you can convince me otherwise I'll be surprised because I've been subscribed to this idea for so long that it lost me some real good opportunities because I thought it was just what I was meant to be doing which turned to be false after I thought about it. There's a million other jobs that are more impactful and with pursuing.2
Upgrading RAM in a customer's laptop, pretty easy, right?
Well not in the Asus VivoBook Max. You have to disassemble everything just to get to the slot under the motherboard because it was too hard to put a fucking hole in the bottom for that. 20 minutes to complete the job and you know what? I also managed to break a flex cable so now I have to fix that or buy a replacement for the whole keyboard/mousepad assembly.

Get fucked you ginganormous cockfaced dick wiggle. Get the fucking fucked in your fucking fuck hole. Fucker.2
Coworker Asks me for every little thing in the code 😑
He literally keeps asking me until I've written all the code for him and this goes on all day.
I really don't have a problem with helping him but he literally doesn't know anything (even the basic stuff) and is just getting code from other people and when I went on a holiday (3 days) he didn't do anything like literally no progress at all.
And yet he still gets paid more than me because I'm still a student 😥
Honestly I'm so done with this bullshit and I can't even get a job at a big company because apparently students are not dependable at all even if I do a better job than most devs who are 'years count' people where they barely knew anything and just do the job out of habit...15
I just hate it when you're happily coding along when a colleague asks you to help him. You try to help him at his computer, but that thing is always slow as shit and has these weird workings. So you go ahead and try to do it quick on your computer. Then during the setup you run into problems. Being the good dev that you are you try and fix those along the way, but somehow you get sucked deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole. The next thing you know you've been working an hour on some shit which should have taken 5 minutes. To top it all off you want to return to what your were actually doing and say "screw it". But there's this nagging feeling and you can't help but finish what you started. Worst of all your colleague hasn't advanced one bit.
Somehow I always feel like a jerk afterwards. Either I quit and didn't help (and didn't fix what needed fixing), or I did help and it took too much time away from stuff I should have been working on :(2
I dont need DuckDuckGo,

While styling some frontend stuff with LESS, I experienced that on one page template the <header> was not displaying the given line-height eventhough the whole fscking code was 1:1 identical with the other template in which everything was fine. I checked EVERYTHING... caching, URL, source, classes, open / wrong tags, HEAD, ... I even did a diff compare. NO FSCKING DIFFERENCE!
After one hour of pulling out hair I suddenly saw that in the faulty template file 2 lines were missing:
WHOEVER DID THIS: YOU ARE FSCKING STUPID!!! (it was me...)7
I started to work in the CreditCard / Bank business a year ago.
Now they stopped the hole server migration project, so I leave again. They could have had it all. Server 2016, SQL 2016, Citrix, Surface Books and so on.
But no, the new shitty projects are more important than security or on what technology the system is build on.
Seems like the FTP Server will run on Windows 2003 forever...4
My little brother thought he'd have knife throwing practice into a tv box in my room. Just next to the box was my macbook. Long story short, it now has a hole punched into the screen.6
Am I the only one who enjoys learning low languages like C/C++ and absolutely hate Java (seriously FUCK Java so much I hate using it)
Working with pointers and just having the compiler completely explode in your face because you forgot a semicolon or an index out of bounds maybe a bracket just disappeared and you are frustrated but then you fix it and voila it works like magic.
Maybe it's just a thing of mine because C++ was the first programming language I learned and I miss this feeling of hopelessness (I think I might have done BDSM fetishes) and it makes me feel nostalgic.
When I was first learning them all I thought about was how cool this stuff is.19
Back where I used to work, we had this a-hole call center guy who isn't a programmer but got promoted as our team leader. He said he used to program on his early days at the company (?) . He claims that made back-ups of his source code in MS Word and even tries to gives us a lecture about backing up programs.
I really hate those a-wipes who often get promoted and suddenly goes up to their heads8
Why can't people be more objective on demands?

Just had an email forwarded to me with a nice snarky comment by a sales guy that when he wrote it figured people in the technical side of our company would see it. Sales people piss me off, kind of want to tell him he is an a-hole tomorrow.

So I tried to bye a ticket from mobile app which seems not to be working so I contacted tried to contact the customer support team from twitter because they were not picking their phone and this is the response I got. How the fuck am I supposed to know who made it ?😡😡😡I wasted hole day to argue with them.1
WordPress, little more than a security hole with a logo on it. Support community instantly jumps to chmod 777 for literally every problem, Auto updater never works, Doesn't use namespacing or autoloading, Horrendously slow, Encourages some absolutely diabolical development practises, And everyone seems to think it's the perfect foundation for literally everything, IT'S FUCKING NOT!3

The new macbook pro keyboard is my favourite keyboard I've used and any lenovo style keyboard feels like typing on a wet sponge...

Got a new laptop, but it was not properly working, so while waiting for it to get replaced, I have to use the old one again.
Feels like the CPU is a freaking potato!2
As a team lead, has anyone got any positive advice to dealing with a seriously under-performing developer?
In this case; the Developer appears not to be outright lazy, due to the volume of work they get through, but the quality is poor.
Despite having made several subtle attempts, I cannot get them to stop 'leaning' on other developers in the team to hand them the solution on the plate. When I've told them to come and ask me, I found out later they revert to private messaging other Devs on Slack for the answers.
Their work it's very often riddled with bizarre implementation approaches and copy/paste from other areas of the code base which I've told them not to do. Today, they polluted a number of low-level classes with support for one high-level specific use case - which shows a disregard for the App's architecture.
It takes us longer as a team to do the PR than it would do to just scrap it and re-implement.
It's what I'd expect from a very junior Developer; except for the number of years of experience they have, they should be beyond this... I want to try and help them, perhaps with some personal coaching, I'm just worried I'd be wasting my effort.9
Thank you devRant for introducing me to Pi-Hole and F-Droid. My life being my family's "sysadmin" has become so much easier after those two discovery.1
Have you ever seen code that's so bad it crashes TWICE in the same run? I did and I don't like to talk about it some things are better buried away 🕳4
So, I'm heading back down the rabbit hole. I did some web dev (backend) on the side years ago, but I've been out of the game since. I want to change up careers at this late date and I had forgotten how cathartic manipulating raw code could be. So now I'm relearning and learning all kinds of good stuff via the internets and was excited to find this community. Not much of a ranter but this should be fun.3

@bleh I get it, it's like I've exhausted all my options to get out of weekend boredom. So I try my hand at cooking stuff ᕕ( ◕‿◕)ᕗ
Like last night I prepped for the weekend. I bought some meat, threw some large rocks into fire and dug a hole in my backyard. I know it sounds all disconnected but trust me, it's cooking.
When the rocks got fiery hot, I put em in the hole along with seasoned meat, some potatoes, tomatoes, onions and garlic all wrapped in banana leaves.
Went out for a movie, got a pack of beers and forgot about the whole thing. Today morning, I found some dogs stray dogs having a feast in my backyard like a bunch of uptight English twats
Today I met a guy who fuckin remembers some shitty flag he had set in a code 10 years ago and can read code in his brain for anything he had coded.

A coder and a non-coder were travelling on a boat together. Due to some reason there was a hole in that boat and it started to drown. Non-coder survived but coder didn't. Why? Coder thought it was just another loop hole which he could fix using his laptop. So much for his confidence!3

My brain these days-
1] Okay I will get this done today
2] Oh wait how does this work
3] What the hell is happening
4] Going deeper down the rabbit hole
5] I am so lost. HELP
6] Okkk, this makes sense, but I have to figure out how another 10 parts of the code, to see how it works and then add my code
7] I wanna give up.2
So another story about college and stupid team assignments that I have to be responsible for dealing with.
So we had an assignment in operating systems 1 course, it was about memory management and we are a team of 3. Then came the time when we should discuss this assignment with the TA and that day I had to stay all night finishing a project in software engineering (literally giving us a description of a big project because that's what the course teaches And I had to finish it in one all nighter alone because my teammates just gave up).
When the discussion time came I was really tired and then the TA asks me something really simple and I say it but then she tells me that I'm wrong so I wondered a bit and then said no what I said was right! She then asks my teammate (who we are supposed to be good friends) "did he say the right thing?" And his answer is a definitive "NO he's wrong" and then he starts to say the right answer which I swear I said the same but in a different way so I start to say again that I was right and say that I said that just a different way and she took that as an insult and said that I'm shouting at her and being disrespectful to her.
When we finished I asked my friend if he heard me say it wrong and he said "I'm sorry but I didn't even hear what you said and I was afraid" WHAT THE FUCK, he just said that I was wrong to please her and make her feel like she is right and I had to be the wrong one even though I said it right but NOoo her pride is more important
All this was last semester and the second semester just started today and I go into operating system 2 and guess what? The TA got her doctorate and is now the professor for OS 2 when she doesn't even understand anything.
Really FUCK the academic system it feels like it is a grind more than actually gaining mastery of a subject.2
How do you prove yourself?
I'm an iOS developer and I've been developing apps for a year or two now and I don't see anything hard in it I just think it's knowing how to wire things up and avoid common bugs I've also worked on a couple of complex apps and the idea is just the same.
I want to know if I really want to prove myself well (to myself) how can I do that and how can I challenge myself more to improve.
Ps: I'm by no way an expert and I know I've got a big road ahead of me but I just want advise to improve more in the right direction5
So I live in the south. And it’s been pretty cold here the past few nights. And now there’s a gaping hole in my laundry room and water going everywhere and a plumber who seems to still be reading the README.md file. And my kitchen is flooding. And my gf is losing her shit. And I’m drinking coffee sitting at my bar, checking emails. Somebody wake me up.13
Do you guys swear 😏, I do a lot about tech but I don't see anyone on here doing that
Nothing like shit I just shocked myself

FUCK YOU!!! HOW CANT YOU SEE THAT EVERY TIME I SUGGEST TO SEPARATE OUR FUCKING WORKFLOW WITH FRONT END/BACK END AND TRY TO INTRODUCE AT LEAST SOME MANAGEMENT TO THIS SHIT HOLE ITS MY WAY OF SAYING: look dude, I like it here but fuck you shit face if I have to deal with this fucking CSS bullshit one more time there are going to be delays everywhere ...

I can never forgive Apple for the iPhone X. Not because it's a bad phone or that it is overpriced. But because they missed the perfect opportunity to make the back logo the fingerprint scanner.
I mean seriously, just think about the marketing potential. They finally had an excuse to cut that hole in the back of the cover.1
When you want to write the unit test that demonstrates a subtle bug, but before recreating the same preconditions you end up writing 15 other tests, testing a lot of other stuff too, that in turn show other bugs, and skyrocketing the coverage (that was sitting at 0% actually).

Fucking windows.... Let's go back about 20 days earlier first day in February I had the genius idea of updating my windows and it did actually update except 2 of them failed..... But I was like alright then don't matter and disabled updates for Windows....... Next day I found a program called windows 10 update assistant installed and running a background download....... I was bothered by this but it's no big deal but what's FUCKING stupid is that it fails after a while downloading (I have 1.6 Mb/s download speed but it's limited to 200 GB a month which mostly stays) when it fails it doesn't stop instead when I restart my computer it starts the same program and keeps downloading in the background and then failing for 15 days.
I've tried disabling the updates but it just ignores that and enables them, also tried uninstalling the program windows 10 update assistant but it reinstalls itself!
The problem is that the only thing the website mentioned is that some versions are not supported by security updates, but they don't mention what I could do when it keeps failing.2

pure genius! Ubuntu's firmware-xx-installer installation package for legacy network adapters doesn't install diddly. it *downloads* the firmware for you.
because yeah, people installing network adapter firmware obviously are doing it because they have a working network connection and what they really need help with is downloading the file 9_9

So, one of npm packages event-stream (from flatmap-stream dep) has been found having a malware that steals bitcoins.

Furiously added an entry to the company glossary today:
State of being, in which a developer struggles fruitlessly to deliver value through working code, finding their efforts beset on all sides by process considerations.
Ultimately, the developer achieves nothing but to mentally cycle through a dazzling merry-go-round of process rules and Jira updates.
Left untreated, this condition can quickly degenerate into Atlassian Madness.
Manager: Another code-tastic day in front of the IDE? How's progress on those sweet algorithms we talked about last week?
Developer: Nah, the Delivery Manager threw me into a Process Vortex, I've been trying to climb out all day.
Manager: Eesh - good luck with that!1
Holy fucking monkey nuts my boss is such a cunt, he is soo damned ignorant, for some who worked in dev for 20 years, to tell another dev that is easy, should only need to change a few keys in order to be able to completely rewrite 6 months worth of work. Poor bastard was soo pissed he finished a whole bottle of whiskey.
I made him work from home today, we not really meant too, because you know, Developer do not do work if their duck dick of a manager is not there watching, and well it makes it a lot harder for him to make rediculously, moronic requests like that over slack.
Part of me was genuinely afraid he would same something equally moronic and said dev would try and kill him, which would put the rest of the office and the awkward position if having to help. Really complicated to cover that up and then get the stories straight and iron out the alibis.1

Not exactly a dream, but during an internship where I tried to engineer a way to listen in on Bluetooth communications, I went so deep down the rabbit hole that I once half-asleepedly thanked my girlfriend for "keeping an eye on the Bluetooth channels for me, because these little twerps just keep jumping around all over the place"

"Starting with Firefox version 67 each Firefox installation requires a separate profile."
Then I went to uninstall the new version of Firefox so I could stay with the old. It uninstalled the old version. Now I have a version of Firefox with no uninstall option that won't talk to my old profile. I found options for this, but really? Is firefox becoming a shit hole now? Have I just noticed that it already was a shit hole?

Seriously though, it's the second email of the sort today. The recipient is not even my address, and from some subtle cues (cf.

So we pushed some quick fixes management required to the system before going home to sleep. We warned them that we don’t have much time to check and test them. Because ordinarily such fixes go fine, they insisted.
What do you know, while we slept some smartasses within users drained our system money through the new hole we did not notice.
Manager responsible for this just gone dark, never ever picked up his phone. Just disappeared.
We don’t do such fixes anymore 🤗2

Another step down the rabbit hole.
I've moved from running VMs when I want Linux, to a Fedora 26 / windows 10 dual-boot.3
You know that feel where you're looking for a solution and don't find one. And go down this rabbit hole of self loathing? And everything is sad and depressing. You can't think straight. You feel like an idiot. You kinda don't know/ forget things you knew a couple days earlier.
Well, that ended yesterday. For now.2

When I quit my job making multiple bullshit excuses of how tired I am and how much better my life would be if I work from home and here I am been lazy for 2 - 3 months and didn't learn anything new also didn't practice what I know.
Honestly I'm so disappointed in myself and the fact that it was a good opportunity for me makes it harder on me blaming myself.
I don't think there is anything more painful than seeing some programmers writing badly formatted code.
I mean how can anyone use a single space or completely inconsistent spaces and tabs.
What is more painful is that you cannot scream at them because you don't wanna be an A-Hole trying to force your methods to others.
FUCK YOU CSS!

How does it feel attending conferences? (Good ones!)
Here in my country we don't have that many good ones they are all just some show offs talking about how they hacked their way through.

MaterialUI? Is it shit?
A brand new code base. Old codebase (old employees) used MaterialUI, locking in a lot of the styling and layout in their grids.
I'm trying to identify the pros/cons that can come from experience using the framework.
Some questions to spark discussion:
Anyone used this in production for a period of time?
Did it hold up? Did the designers hate it?
How was mixing this with SASS etc.
I've been an a-hole. I accepted job offers from two companies and went ahead with their processes until I signed the employment contract with one of them. I was just afraid of unemployment and, for some reason, I'm even more afraid now.6

Is it JUST purely because of the market need and people using them?

There are days I like to pull my hair out and create a dynamic 4D map that holds a list of records. 🤯
Yes there's a valid reason to build this map, generally I'm against this kind of depth 2 or 3 is usually where I draw the line, but I need something searchable against multiple indexes that doesn't entail querying the database over and over again as it will be used against large dynamic datasets, and the only thing I could come up with was a tree to filter down on as required.6

Intel management engine pwned over USB
With everyday that passes, this Intel ME rabbit hole just keeps getting deeper.
A friend of mine is finishing his telecomm engineering degree, currently on an internship.
Turns out that his new job consists on managing their trainwrecked WordPress and making pictures for their Facebook page. His boss is also the biggest a-hole I've never heard off.
He is so fed up of their bullshit he made a lil backdoor on the web. We are planning on injecting a script that replaces every char on the site with \uFD5. Any better ideas?4

You know how in cartoons a character will plug leak in a hose, seemingly solving the issue, only to soon find out that because of them plugging one hole, a new one has opened and is making the hose leak again? That’s what web development is like.

Can people help me please,
Which one is better Android development (Android studio) or IOS development (Xcode)
I learned a bit of both(still a beginner) and here is what i think so far
-Android is more wide spread and is more flexible also i have an Android device (testing)
-IOS development is really fun and intuitive and more money is paid to developers because not everyone has a mac in my country.
-Android studio is messy and java is really dull imo
-IOS requires a developer account which is really expensive in my country.
Any help is much appreciated even if it is a personal opinion10

Dear bash script dev,
maybe you don't know, but they won't pay you more if you use fewer chars in your scripts.
Well, at least i hope you didn't know this; because if turns out that you consciously and deliberately wrote your variable names like a blind man would play scrabble, and now i have to deal with names like $tre_img , $cnt_aprn , $catlow3 etc... then YOU ARE AN A**HOLE 😤😡3
Test the project pre-release -> everything works well
Release the project -> new bugs comes out, features are not working anymore, some files are corrupted, your PC is ready to explode and a black hole is going to destroy everything1
I'm not sure I understand this but you can shrink anything by putting it in a gel and shining a laser at it? And whatever you put in would still work? So I could shrink a TV into nanoscale then, it would have the same mass... So theoretically I could create a black hole?
About a month ago my grandfather gave me the okay to work on a pi-hole and attach it to the router
So I did that yesterday, and he yells at me for it (because having a civil conversation is impossible with him) and says that we don't need "extra stuff" and says that I'll break the router.
I tried to explain how the process works but I was just shut down and interrupted.
He could have at least told me he changed his mind so I wouldn't have wasted over two hours of my day building and troubleshooting the device.
Mind you, he literally worked in hardware for 50 years and has had ham radio as a hobby for over sixty.
So currently working on a basic game engine written in Vala using SDL, fuck me it is such a rabbit hole!
Have a basic renderer and and was using the default SDL frame rate manager and decided to write my own so I could knock out using the SDL gfx package.

So while we all ranting about Mozilla fucking up, has anyone ever used a pi-hole?

I've dropped into another rabbit hole it seems...2
Tested the windows linux subsystem. Thought windows did something good by implementing a complete Linux bash. Then I recognized that they just piped it into the win kernel. Lol they broke it again XD
Next steps are removing windows, burn that m2 ssd in some gasoline, throw the ashes in a deep hole next to my old bootcamp 40GB HDD (Mac OS X) and finally setting up a new fresh and clean system which won't get in touch with any Windows forever.
So I'm interested in building a Raspberry Pi stack at home to continue securing and adding my smart home capabilities, 👍
Have ideas for 2/3 but what else could I look to add?
1. Pi. Hole with cloudflared argo proxy for all DNS
2. Home Automation server
3. IPS / IDS like Bro or snort? Or firewall like pfsense?
4. Log server with Splunk agent from other pi's and router....
5. What else?

I read. Alot. When I'm going to do something simple, even if I've done it before I google a bit on "how to do x" and see if there are better ways to do it. And I follow the rabbit hole a bit to see where it goes.
Example, I just learned about the unix command mktemp. I wasn't googling about making temporary files, but it was part of a solution to a different problem. Ive discussed how to make temporary files with colleagues before, and this builtin unix command has never come up. So many minutes wasted coming up with random filenames.
Someone by mistake deactivated my company account. I don't have access to any company services including help desk. Probably it will take 2-3 days to activate it again due to some retarded policies only to deactivate it again next Friday, because this will be the last day in that shit hole.2
So in my short time as a software developer I find myself that I sometimes get bored working (I feel like I'm doing the same thing from 9 to 5 everyday) don't get me wrong I like my job a lot but sometimes I feel like it's not satisfactory.
Do you get bored like this? And what do you do to keep it exciting for you (Don't go into money please I don't think it's the reason for happiness)2
That moment when you explain to your manager what the term "full-stack" means and next thing you know you've gone from being a "backend c#" to azure migration expert/dba/designer/api architect/network engineer/php wordpress developer... let's go back to when you'd never heard of full-stack
When I was 8 years old and I mastered to get Gameboy games back working by blowing in the hole on the side of the connector, I've always said I would become game developer. I became one, minus 'game'.
PM: what can we do to avoid users abusing the loop hole until we could patch it?
Me: I recommend whipping repeat offenders. As a teambuilding exercise of course.

Whose company is hiring remote full stack/back end JS devs with Nodejs, react-redux, react native, typescript, coffeescript? Please help a devRanter.
Time to quit this shit hole 😫5
Learn a new language and get out of the weird QA hole I'm stuck in... I want to learn something that i can use anywhere, not just when building a weird cucumber/rspec hybrid
Well, for me being a dev or at least a hobby-dev is like reading and writing a book. Each like of code holds a thought as each sentence holds a story. The more you write, the better is the result. It's the feeling that you can do art in multiple ways.
Once you start, you fall down a deep and unknown rabbit hole, yet it's a slow fall, with a lot of obstacles in the way. You'll get bruises. Break something even. In the end you'll die. That doesn't matter though, because what's left after you is the path you chose and it's open for anyone who dares to follow you.
It's like magic.
Today i had a first experiente with Python. I'm finishing my course and I've done it with mainly Java. Now that I had this first class with python, I just feel like I've been trying to build a house with my bare hands this hole fuckin time!!3

This rabbit hole. And the project hasn't started yet for weeks and months.1
Do you think you should apply for a job you are probably not ready for to get work experience or wait till you get experience with learning?
Notes (small company, I am a student)
Please help me with this7
Ex-manager keeps trying to boss me around. Not only that- he now tries to get fame for a project I’ve been doing for six months that he actively avoided managing...
I am down a rabbit hole already this morning. Spending lots of time looking at contradictory information on HttpClient in C#... Interesting stuff!1
I've a rp0w only running pi-hole on it. What else would you recommend me to put on it? Give me some cool ideas!

Since I can't get my user stories today, I started on trying getting my angular frontend to communicate with my symfony backend. I now feel like I need a lot of climbing gear, because I get the feeling I went too deep into the rabbit hole.
getting quite confused with Observables and promises.1
Weekend 3 trying to configure user pool authentication with aws lambda/API gateway with SAM/cloudformation. What a disaster documentation is around this.
Whenever I post a question on stack overflow I get the views with 0 responses. Does anyone even use this garbage?
Seriously wth aws.
I got sucked into a rabbit hole with this.
I discovered "view source", and took the rabbit hole from there... My dad is also in IT so that helped too.
I'd strongly advise to learn some basic about OOP and a commonly used programming language and not go down the tutorial rabbit hole and rather try stuff out.1
-Make enough money to buy myself a laptop and a new phone to be able to work from my laptop and test on my phone.
-Be able to have better balance between my work, college and personal life.
-Do some useful open source projects (in swift) and put them on GitHub.
-Take care of my body and start working out.
-Work on my charity app idea and hopefully make big progress maybe even publish it.
I've been tumbling down the webpack rabbit hole for the better part of the day. Irritable.
I get it to bundle and everything but then I can't access variables that I used to be able to. I'm confused and hungry.
