Damn devrant, the double tap to ++ feature has me addicted.
Now I'm double tapping answers on Quora
1. Realize it doesn't work
2. Go to next answer
3. Repeat 😐8
I've realized that I'm addicted to internet entertainment and it's seriously affecting my education and relationships.
For the month of October I'm swearing off YouTube, Facebook and devrant because of its little dopamine pumping notification bell.
I just feel like I can't even focus enough to go through an hour class without pulling my phone out.5
Wow. I think I've got devrant fever.
I just browsed devrant. Closed devrant. Immediately saw devrant on my homescreen and thought, I need to check devrant. Then immediately after that I remember I just browsed devrant. *Sigh*.6
I've just closed devRant to subconsciously open it again and wonder how it opened again. I'm definitely addicted now3
My client changed the requirements again. I'm in pain.
- "You want to see pain?" my colleague said. Go read Apple support forums. That's pain.
I became addicted. Every time I died and every time I was born again. Resurrected.
During the night, I was crying in the Apple forums for an official answer that would never come. During the day, I was surfing StackOverflow to fix my problems. You get "single-serving" friends there. They help you, you help them, and then you never see them again.
- "Then you install Stack and boom, you're done. It's that easy to go functional."
That's how I met him.
- "No, why?"
- "So that they can distract you while they put backdoors in them. So that you don't have time to check all of their code".
- "You are by far the most interesting "single-serving" friend I've ever met"
Then, my hard disk died. Of course, I didn't have backups: nobody has enough space for all those node_modules folders. All my addictions, lost.
Then I wrote him. If you asked me now, I couldn't tell you why I wrote him. We chatted a lot.
- "It's late, I should really go search another hdd on ebay"
- "Ebay? You called me so you could have my old hard disk."
- "No, I..."
- "Come on."
He sent me his old hard disk. It was a 256MB hard disk, but it was fine for running Arch. Then he asked me to rant about my problems in front of him.
- "I want you to rant as hard as you can"
- "Are you serious?"
We ranted all night about our bosses and clients and their fucked up requests. We kept in touch, and after a while more people were ranting with us. Every week, he gave the rules that he and I decided.
- "The first rule of devRant is -- you don't talk about devRant. The second rule of devRant is -- you don't talk about devRant."
I like to think this is how devRant started. This might also be the reason why we never see @trogus, only @dfox. A lot of shit still needs to happen.8
I'm addicted to dark theme everywhere. Dark Firefox, dark chrome, dark YouTube, dark devrant, dark Reddit, dark Google keyboard. What else can I make dark?11
I'm supposed to be studying for end semester exams when I'm spending time on here laughing at life's problems we all face.
I'm officially addicted to devRant. Who else is?3
devRant = Developer Anonymous. For people who are addicted to coding - the best sort of addiction. :-D
"I'm sterex, and I code."2
Prediction of a future rant:
Guys I'm starting a Devrant addiction recovery movement.
I've become addicted since it fills me with delight to read all the rants.
It's so bad that my work has suffered.
The first step is admitting I have a problem
Actually it doesn't matter, all my projects get canceled anyway so noone noticed I stopped coding.5
adding a nightmode feature, i.e prevent access to DevRant after midnight, would be a great idea!
I have to sleep, but I'm addicted.
HELP my precious soul!1
Expressing myself in words helps me to structure my thoughts, make new connections between concepts and know myself better. I think that's why I'm addicted to devRant. I even comment on YouTube videos, ugh. Sometimes I write something, read it and go "huh, I didn't know I felt that way". Pretty bizarre, but almost always positive. Now what I think about it (SEE??) I should do some journaling, it's been a while. The fuck is up with this letter sorcery...3
