Client: I want all cookies blocked on my computer.
Me: Are you sure? Some things won't work if i do that. Like using online banking.
Client: I don't use it, so it's fine.
*Two weeks pass. I have to come back and see three bankcards laying on the table*
Client: I'm not able to use online banking anymore. Can you fix it?
Come on! You pay me to give advice and help out with problems. The least you could do is listen.10
FUCKING HELL! I JUST WANNA STAY HOME AND CODE! NO I DONT WANNA WATCH THAT SHITTY MOVIE AGAIN! NO I DONT WANNA GO DRINKING WITH YOU AND LISTEN TO YOUR LUDICROUS BRAGGING! NO I FUCKING DONT WANT TO MEET YOUR COOL FRIENDS WITH FACEBOOK PHOTOGRAPHY PAGES! NO I DONT WANT TO GET A NEW LIFE, CODE IS MY ART AND ALL I WANT IS TO STAY AND PRACTICE IT TILL MY EYES GO DRY AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS I'LL CODE IN FUCKING BRAILLE!20
Client: Why is this not working?
Me: Because the feature expect a...
Client: I sure hope you won’t expect your client to want to know all these teach behind this feature, as a client, I just expect it to work.
Client: So why isn’t it working now? WHY?
Client: I need a response!
Me: It is not working because...
Client: Stop telling me logics!! I just want it to work. Why isn’t it working...
Me: It is not working because I fucked up. It will work after I fix it.
Client: Why isn’t it working though... I don’t understand why...
Me: Just let me fix it and it will work...
Client: Why can’t you tell me why... it’s not good communication... (hangs up)13
I find it amazing how she was able to write all that code by hand, without any tools to assist her. I don't even want to think about the enormous amount of time she spend debugging that.27
Today's my birthday.
I want to remind everyone that we're all just kids pretending to be adults.
No one actually has it figured it out.
I'm NOT giving you the information you want because I can't verify you. You can tell me that we're the only company who does it like this and name all companies which do it differently, you can curse me into the ground or completely lose your shit at me but that won't make a difference:
I'm not giving you the information you want.
Go fuck yourself.11
Windows 10 once again held my computer at ransom! When it finally came around after the update, all it really seem to do is place Edge back on my task bar. No... Bad Microsoft, I don't use or want Edge.6
There is no need to ever put your greasy-ass nasty fingers on my screen, it may not look expensive or nice but I don't want to deal with your fingerprints all over it.7
I hate this attitude of my study (when i studied):
"it might be a good idea to teach the students how to program securely by default?"
"oh no but we just want to teach them the basics"
"so why not the secure basics by default?!"
"nah we just want them to get started and understand it, that's all. We'll get to the secure way later on"
Well, fuck you.17
Job offer: "All employees will be provided Macbooks"
Nope! Just nope.
Let your dev chose their equipment, thank you very much.
If they want a Linux laptop, buy them one. If they want a Windows workstation, give it to them. And if and only if they want a Macbook, give them a Macbook.
I used to work in two companies having the requirement to use a Macbook for two years.
I know its pros. I know its cons. My conclusion for me: Never again!15
Boss: I need this page to behave in a completely new way.
Me: that's all fine and dandy but it requires a rewrite.
Boss: nah just look man, it's really simple all I want is blah, blah blah...
I'm too tired for this shit5
Dear websites. STOP fucking deciding in what language I want to read your content. There is a fucking reason I have everything set to english and do all my search queries in english you dense monkeys. I dont want your garbage ass translations that make zero sense because some braindead coconut screwing halfwit AI translated it for you7
I'm building a website for a new company and the boss doesn't understand technology at all. says he doesn't want me using any html because it is old and I have to use python because it's a 'hot language.' I try to explain that html is for websites and he replies 'not mine.'19
Stupid annoying client want me to add 2 new fields on a form. Ok I said, my estimation is that I need 2 days to make the changes on form, database and all the scripts that posting and getting data, plus testing. His reply was, come one do you really want 48 hours to just add 2 fields, its sooo easy!!!! WTF dude... if it is sooo easy why are you fucking bother me??? Do it your self!!!!9
Winter break is next week and I don't know what to do...
I have an exciting programming project I want to work on!
Buuuut, I also have this 1,500 page book I want to read!
Buuuuuuut, my manuscript still needs some work! I want to work on it as well.
If I do all three, I won't get to finish anything, so only one task during break.
Three of my favorite things... Why must choices be so difficult?
Also, the picture is the 1K page book I bought. :) It's beautiful!32
My anxiety is kicking in again.
I want to build something meaningful outside of work but my mind is blank, I have no ideas to implement, and whenever one pops up in my head, I DDG it, I find that there's someone who already built something similar and I lose all interest.
I want to code, but I'm tired of solving fictional problems.
I miss being excited to learn a new tech, since I know I would ditch it if I can't find anything to build with it.
This is causing me to lose all motivation to code and learn, I really hope this is just a phase ｡ﾟ･（>﹏<）･ﾟ｡17
Microsoft, if I click the "Update and shut down" button it means I want you to update and shut down, not do a third of the update, shut down then wait for me to turn the computer back on for you to finish! Why can't it just do the update, reboot as necessary then shut down once it's all done?3
Boss come all excited... I want this project done right! I want it on time and I want this client uber happy!
Me: Dude ... pick two.3
Got hungry, peeled myself a carrot because I want to live healthier.
As I was peeling the thing, I figured.. why am I operating this thing? And even think of putting it in my mouth?! It looks so PHALLIC!!!!
To all the carrots out there, I DEMAND that you change shape NOW!!!23
To everyone who likes Sublime Text but doesn't want/can't spend money on it: Check out Atom. It's a similar editor and open source.
As far as I experienced it, it is a really good editor and it has all the features I want. Recommend it 👍29
"Install through npm"
"Install through gulp"
"Install through compiling"
"Install through x"
"Install through y"
WHY CAN'T I JUST SIMPLY INCLUDE THE MOTHERFUCKING THING IN THE HTML LIKE A FUCKING NORMAL PERSON?!
ALL I WANT IS TO INCLUDE A GODDAMN UI FRAMEWORK.
When I just started web development, this stuff was so fucking easy! Why did it become so motherfucking complicated to include simple shit like this?!
All I want is to start programing this motherfucker, not spend 3 hours on compiling CSS and whatnot (because I'd have to learn this bullshit first).
Mother of god, why did this become so fucking obnoxious?
I. JUST. WANT. TO. INCLUDE. TWO. FUCKING. FILES.77
have deleted the last rant as it was depressing and stuff and i don't want to depress you lovely people 🤗.
Sorry to all those who read it 😅.25
Client: I want to change the wording on the page. If I inspect element I find the word I want to change, but it won’t let me change it. How can I change it please? I am very disappointed this is not working. What is the point in you developing all this if I cannot save changes to my website. Please fix this ASAP.
MFW they think updating a website is just as simple as using element inspector in chrome because they have seen me use it to quickly mock up some css changes.5
I am sitting knee deep in Woocommerce/PHP/Wordpress, becasue "you're a programmer, you should know it!" Actually no, I am writing embedded software for devices. In C. I know shit about Wordpress. God help me! Anyway, I found an interesting topic on a forum, go through all the posts to be punched at the end by "never mind, I managed to fix it" without any explanation! I want this guy to be doxxed and punished! Aaaaarghhhh!4
why does everyone always give me backtalk when i want to make my files smaller and more readable
"no you should put your scripts, style and template all in one file, theres no need to put it separate"
alright while we are at it, lets just write the entire project in 1 single file6
Client: Can you build me a custom Wordpress site to look like this WordPress template..
Me: Sure, but why not buy the rights to the template?
Client: I want it custom.
Me: what do you want custom?
Client: the content on all the pages. The template is all in french or something.
Me: kills self.4
All I ask, clients, is for you to send EVERYTHING you want in a single document.
It can be DOC, PDF or even in the body of an e-mail, as long as it's properly organized and formatted.
But, please, DO NOT BREAK IT IN 4789502935352183785785923 E-MAILS, specially when you want it to be done quickly!4
I had to reinstall windows today in school. I seriously didnt want to touch that bullshit so i did nothing. After 10 minutes teacher came to me handed me an USB labeled freeBSD and pointed to an Rack server and told me just one word "GNOME". Now thats an way of making me fucking happy.
Really that made my day just looooooooooot fucking better. Also i had it all set up faster then all my classmates the damn windows.8
Got in trouble today during a Data integrity meeting, everyone kept talking about data massaging. "Massage this data", "massage that data table", "insert massaged data".
Finally I just blurted out, "yeah massage it all you want but how do I get a data happy ending?"
I thought it was hilarious. The other DBA and backend devs thought it was jokes, my manager... Not so much.
Apparently, I need to keep "thoughts and comments about data happy endings to myself moving forward".
Boss not fan of tests at all.
"Hey I'm doing all of tests" - boss to me.
"Cool, are they automated? Or do you want me to implement'em?" - me to him
[long speech about why tests are irrelevant including "...once I tested, it is tested, we dont need to have automated tests."] *im teaching you because you dont know voice*
Please, help meeee5
That's it. That's all I have for my home server setup. I don't even know why we have that sticky red thing, but today it came handy. And now I can SSH anytime I want, it's never going get shutdown 😂2
when u want to explain something to a collegue and u use all your mind in explaining it by words and he doesn't get it.
draw it! haha! even my flowcharts doesnt look like flowcharts, he got what i meant..XD3
Client tests app 100000 times, app works fine
Client tests app once, app doesn't work
Client sends email to everyone,
"Hey, @CodesNotHot, this app is not working at all! Can you please look at it right now!! This is URGENT!"
I test the app, it's working fine.
I just want to high five someone with a machete on the face right now.2
Client: I want my site to look exactly like the design.
Me: Of course, but I'm assuming you want it responsive...
Client: yes, I want it to look exactly like the design on all devices.
Me: but that's not how...
Project manager: of course the site will be fully responsive and look exactly the same on all devices.
1 week later...
Project manager: The site looks horrible on mobile!
Me: it matches the design perfectly...3
Sorry for breaking the protocol, but I'm not here to rant. I want to thanks all the ranters (is that a thing now?) for recommending Mr. Robot (the TV series). Just watched the first episode and I can see myself watching it all day. Be back tomorrow.6
My laptop is a useless piece of shit when it isn't plugged. All I want is a slim box that I could bring almost everywhere I go! How long do your laptops' batteries last?26
Am I the only one?
I want to know EVERY FUCKN SKILL A DEV CAN POSSIBLYHAVE, but I want to know it all NOW..
googling 30 times for tutorials and posts about a topic,
opening 30 tabs,
then spending around 30 seconds on each one ...
Trying 1-2 tutorials,
not understanding why I dont get this shit...
this is stupid
loosing interest in 3..2..1...
Aaand let's try and learn this new skill..
Starting from today, I officially love windows and ubuntu equally .
Now I can game whenever I want without switching OS.
I think bash on win is all I ever wanted and I really thank MS for it.11
Hello (World)! Noob here. I installed devRant around 5 days ago. I just keep reading the rants and didn't created my account because i was not sure if i will stay here for long time coz most (cr-)apps are boring.
After 5 days:
I owe all of you a tons of '++'.
I want a boss like @Linux have. (i know tags work only in comments)
Gonna stay here till i stay in IT industry.(maybe)10
A few years ago I found a public AWS S3 bucket owned by a fortune 500 company containing a database dump backup with all of their users unsalted md5 hashed passwords.
I didn't report it because I don't want to get sued or charged. I don't know whether it's still public or not.6
It really crushes my motivation and is just ridiculous.6
I worked with Angular for last 1.5 years now.
Now every web development project I see, I want to change it to angular.
Is it just me or you all feel the same?9
No I don't want to deactivate it, I want you to DELETE all the information you have on me, preferably without having to fucking beg some low-life suppport agent in India (no offense intended) via E-Mail to do his goddamn duty...6
Custom: yeah yeah yeah I don't care about all that technical crap, all I want to know is if it comes with Google...
Me: *Slams head on desk repeatably*5
This is a request from all devs out there:
Please, If you plan to use a word play in naming your next product, please make it a little specific.
*googling "Brackets + [issue with some programming language]"
Just imagine how would I find what I want in a pile of crap about matching brackets.5
I hate when people don't capitalize ID in all caps. It is confusing when the write it as Id or id, because I don't know if they're talking about an identifier or the aspect of human nature that exists from birth that subconsciously drives you to want to fuck your mother.8
Ok so I'm releasing (in about two weeks) a massive project that my self and other talented people have been working on for about 2 years.
I feel like I want to puke all the time now. God I hope it is okay. 🤢
I'll let you all know what it is if all goes well so I'm not embarrassed if it does not
Wish me luck😐12
Best: I pushed myself to learn better about the field I am in and want to pursue. Also accomplished a few achievements because of my extra efforts.
Worst: It ruined my sleep cycle.
But it's all paying off.
So I want to watch Olympics events on TV but apparently need a premium cable channel not in my package (NBC-SN).
BUT I can use my cable login to stream it online and in the NBC Sports app
AND the app supports Chromecast internally
In the end I still get to watch on my TV but... Why all this trouble....4
Boss: Did you get that trivial change I requested completed?
Me: No, I've been busy trying to fix a critical issue with a production app.
Boss: I don't want other people dictating how you spend your time.
Let it all burn down, then, I guess!
Some IT person is walking to the marketing department coffee machine because one on IT is broken.
While waiting for his coffee he yells:
I want a enormous rack!
All the women instantly hide, and one guy say. “You cannot say that here!”
IT guy looks surprised and wondering what he said wrong....
"I don't want to offend you but well clearly you're not an artist. "
From the client i tell repeatedly "Web design is not my strong point so if there is a design you want we should bring on a designer"
And actually i was an artist. But i didn't like all the subjective criticism. Criticise my code when it doesn't work. I didn't ever sell you Web design
Since we are using the same password on all our servers (both QA and Production environment) my team somehow decided that it would be easier to copy the private SSH key for to ALL servers and add the public key to the authorized.keys file.
This way we SSH without password and easily add it to new servers, it also means that anyone who gets into one server can get to all of them.
I wasn't a fan of the same password on all servers, but this private key copying is just going against basic security principles.
Do they want rogue connections? Because that's how you get them.1
Boss: I want Module 4 (regular complexity) done by tomorrow.
Me: *with not enough experience to get it done within a day. Still does it by staying up all night*
Boss: I didn't want this, skip rest of the modules and jump to Module 10 (extremely complex) and I want it tomorrow.
To any and all family members, before requesting my help with the printer/computer/electronic device follow these steps to make sure I don't get irritated.
1. Make sure it's plugged in.
2. Turn it off then back on
3. Turn it off, unplug it for around 30s, turn it back on.
4. Request help
Why is this so hard to grasp? I don't want to stop my workflow with an issue that could be resolved in less than a minute!1
I just want a coffee machine that is smart enough to know when I need coffee and then serves it on my desk.
(Also this coffee machine should automatically kill all annoying client's)5
I just want to make it clear to all of us here...
Not every goddamn thing is a bug from X or a bug from Y most of the time I, Us, We as programmers fucking make mistakes or don't know the issue because it's vague!!! IT'S NOT A FUCKING BUG!!!2
We started working with some pretty big (in data volume) client. Around 4.000 projects with about 10 to 15 deliverables by project. Our software helps them plan/manage that.
US : Hey, so on this page we only display first 10, so it is fast and you can adjust using filters.
Client: No, I want to see all 4.000 projects on the same page
US : Well, for one year it will generate : 4000x10(deliverables)x12 editable fields. Your browser will crash. (No time to add virtual scroll)
Client: No, I want to see all 4.000 projects on the same page
US : Ok, here is pagination to help you.
Client: No, I want to see all 4.000 projects on the same page
Tomorrow is going to be fun.17
FUCK U GOOGLE PHOTOS, I MANUALLY UPLOAD PHOTOS FROM THE APP AND THEN DELETE ONE FROM THE WEB APP FROM MY PC BECAUSE I DIDNT WANT THAT ONE UPLOADED.....
BUT IT DELETED IT ON MY PHONE.... WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lesson of the Day: Manually copy all photos to PC and external HD first. Then upload the ones you want.
This is taking a while.... i wonder if i have enough disk space.....11
Fuck my life! For my studies at University it is required that I learn how to code... Over the past month I've been learning java, and yesterday a friend of mine has introduced me to Go. Now all I want to do is learn Go, meanwhile our Prof pushes us to learn switch-case and goto...17
Most successful project? Probably a little tool I built to practice programming and to help with my studies in a completely different field. I didn't want to keep it all for myself and shared it with some friends at the university. I would never have expected that a couple of weeks later almost every student at our department will be using it but I'm quite happy I could help them too.
Client wants a webapp where every label on all form inputs are configurable, even the fucking login form ("Login" and "Password" text)
They also want it to send emails where the message is configurable too (they can insert your own HTML)
so basically they want the entire fucking webapp to be configurable, all without requiring any code change.
I could use a "configurable" torture device right now.9
I absolutely HATE that stage fright feeling I get when I'm about to launch new software into production mode for a client! Anyone else feel that? Makes me want to vomit thinking of all the promises I've made that it will work fine and then all the things I don't even realize could go wrong. I never have enough testing resources because client budgets tend to favor shiny features at the expense of testing.2
Just took out my four wisdom teeth at once. I can't feel my face, I look like a balloon and I'm drooling like I'm about to eat a delicious cake.
Except the cake is a fucking lie, my mandibular joints are hurting and I can't eat solids for a week.
At least I only have one postoperative to contend with. Hurray! 🙃8
My family is breaking up, crashing down like a meteor. My father is behaving like a fucking Scrooge.
If I was younger, I would probably not even notice, but at this age this is all very stressful, since this is a huge change in my life. It could even disturb my education... I don’t want to think about it.9
older clients are returning with my old projects and asking for improvements, I did buy a few very shitty scripts from the internet/ and used one of my friends custom php cms for the other client because I REALLY needed money and they needed the projects yesterday.
Now I'm looking at the code and can't start working because of how messy it all is, I want to remake it all with a good framework and system, but it would take too much time (and they want it fast) and they wouldn't want to pay for the improvements because what they have now works..
I guess the shit you throw out when you're younger does come flying back like a boomerang..3
That feeling when you accidentally press the close button of multi tabbed application... be it chrome or multiple ssh client and you get asked if you really want to do it? - Sign of relief.
i accidentally pressed space while clicking that picture and actually lost it all.😥4
I want to share one very interesting incident -
Once upon a time, ( 9 yrs back ) I got my first PC. It had Windows XP.
After using it for 1.5 hours, I realised there are some files in C:
I said to myself, my hard disk capacity is 150GB but why some files exist in C:?
Within next 4 seconds, I issued a command to delete all files in C:
The rest you can predict :p1
I get it some people need music to work or do whatever. But I don't want to freaking listen to your music. Lower your volume what are your expensive (noise cancelling and all that shit) headphones for ? Hope they explode.5
My fucking work challenges:
1. "Talk to this thing over the internet" what language does it speak? Fuck knows
2. "Make sure all the files are correct in the server" Our server plan only allows 3 requests per second, and someone is pinging it. Can't do shit.
3. "Shit broke!" You broke it. It was working fine. In fact, all our problems stem from that 1 thing you broke!
4. "Stay here all night" The hallway to the bathroom's door is locked. I can go to my workstation but have to go outside to get to the bathroom!
Fuck, its like you don't want me to succeed
Some days I get bored with programming and I think I have no talent and I wish I had a different job. But someday I love programming and I want to code all day.
Is it normal? Do you have these mix feelings?9
An actual email thread:
G: I need this done
Me: okay. Whats the priority, when's the due date, who are the stakeholders, what's the sensitivity level of the data?
G: Priority is ASAP, due date is ASAP, stakeholders are ALL OF IT, and i want to be able to control the data sensitivity level
Those arent ANSWERS; they're REQUESTS!!!9
So @-ScratchOs just gave me my 1000 +1.
I want to thank you all for being so awesome. I have never felt more welcome than here. Thank you @dfox and @trogus for making this.
No one in my school shares my passion for coding and so it is very nice to meet people with the same hobby here.
Also, why are all the cats you can select for your avatar so chubby?4
I saw a job I could apply, I matched all the requirements, 100%. Not only the bases requirements, but I also had almost all the extras, and the company was in my country and spoke my language, it's good for me since my English isn't perfect.
I didn't apply because I'll graduate soon and I want to focus on my degree.
I bet that when I graduate all my current knowledge will be obsolete and I'll no find any job - not even if I beg for it - until I starve. Do you want to bet a beer? I'm ready10
Does anyone else have this problem?
I hate designing a personal website. I'm never content with what I made, and even if I feel satisfied a couple of days later I want to start all over. I've gone through at least five complete rebuilds in one year because I can't make up my mind! How do you deal with it?11
I felt inspired by programming when I wrote my first C code.
Up until then the machine would talk and I would listen.
Now all of a sudden I was able to tell it to do whatever I want it to do.
I want to thank all open source projects and their collaborators.
I want to thank communities such as stack overflow and specialized forums where people make time to help others.
Lastly, I want to thank everybody here by sharing their experiences and making one feeling less alone (or less weird).
I don’t know of any other community aside from devs where they help so much between themselves. I think this is one of the few professions were collaboration is a fundamental part of it.
Client insisting on Vanilla JS instead of using a existing framework to design a reporting dashboard, because "first I want to build one dashboard page and see how people react to It and what all changes they want. Once we have complete picture in mind we will go for a framework". Sure, let's do the entire work twice for peanuts.10
I really feel the need to just blacklist the entire EU, to not deal with additional shit like gdpr, I do see its benefits, but I am already busy with getting my client approved by paywalls, other services and get all that bullshit integrated - I really don't need having to also shit out some very detailed statement about it all, if you want something like that, then create a generator that gives me all you want with couple clicks, else get fucked outta my sight.15
Either help me be more reasonable because I know I'm crazy, or send money/pc parts lol
I just want my computer to do all the things so if i feel like doing something, I don't need to worry that it can't handle it. (And I know people are going to tell me to use Linux, I will. But i want windows as a backup)36
Client doesn't want me to use internet, while connecting to their vpn to code. It's a security 'violation', it seems. Do they think I am Denise Richie to code without internet? And the catch is I code for OpenFlow with OpenNetworkLinux+OpenNIE. I mean, do they even understand what Open means in all these?11
I dont need DuckDuckGo,
I dont need any VPN
I dont need all of this "Internet Privacy Service" BULLSHIT which my ISP wants me to use,
I DONT NEED ANY OF THIS FUCKING SHIT!
AND I DONT WANT IT EITHER!
I HAVE MY OWN PI HOLE!
AND THATS FUCKING ENOUGH FOR WHAT I NEED! STOP TELLING ME ABOUT ALL THIS "We are clearly not logging your shit" WHILE YOU DO!!
Because I have my own shit!
OK Google.... guess we'll play it the hard way....
I'll just upload all videos i want transcribed onto Youtube in smaller (10 minute?) chunks where machine transcribe is enabled...2
Now on most websites I'm not one to want likes, normally I couldn't care.
But on this website, one single thing makes me want lots of likes.
Is it stickers? Nope.
Maybe it's that sweet stress ball? Try again!
Just want all that attention? Not for me.
I just really want my avatar to sit on an exercise ball.1
I swear every one of this week's weekly rant could be remixed together with the sound of silence playing over it all...
EDIT: now that I've said this I really want to do it...5
When you know the whole week's weather forecast w/o even looking at it, because your neighbours above you are aged people and when they read it out *loud* you can hear it all sooo clearly...
Boy do I want my own house....6
Another one of my job recruiter ranting posts
I couldn't add all of it in but they want a senior developer with 4 years of experience (which is I don't believe is senior worthy) but pay peanuts ($25 -$35, is not a lot in New Zealand)
I don't understand how companies can expect someone to be able to be in charge of all their development and expect to pay absolutely nothing, no wonder there are more companies that want to be contracted for work, then being tied down
Oh yeah and the recruiter couldn't even be bothered typing senior mobile developer, they just typed software developer.. fucking lazy
What a fucking joke...2
All company meeting to discuss plans to move office, and they want to change all of the devs to hot-desking?!
Would be interested in your guys experiences if any of you have done it, but I feel I'd be affected a lot as I only work 3-4 days a week.
I literally stood up and left the meeting, saying I'd quit if they did it. I'm far more comfortable and productive with my setup and space. Knowing my co-workers they might think I'm saying it for drama but I think I actually would leave, despite everything else being fine (except HR!).16
I ordered new computer by separate parts so I will have what I want. Choose to not be delivered by mail but pick it up by myself, so it will be faster. Boy I was wrong.
First of all one part was not available so I have to wait one week longer. Then after a week they say I can pick it up. But I was on vacation.
Finally I was back so I went pick it up. Came there and they said they can't find one part. It supposed to be there but they can't find it right now.
So now I am still waiting.4
What do you guys think about LinkedIn? I'm starting my third year as computer science graduates and it's time to start looking for jobs. I have met many recruiters and they always talk about how important it is with a complete profile. Thing is that I have had good profile for 5 years now and there's a never anyone that has looked at it. I value my privacy and really don't want to disclose all my information there but it feels like I have to, I don't want to loose a job opportunity. I live in Sweden BTW if that matters.7
Docker swarm. All i want is a 'zero-downtime' system and everytime i try to set it up there's three damn things missing. Load balencer, service updater, and a good distributed storage. I finally got pissed off and am working on those but fuck it's been how fucking long docker has been out why the hell somebody else hasn't done this yet.3
Come on WebAssembly!11
Hate me but i started mining on server when its not running anything and well i like it.
First of all its paying for electrocity so im not loosing money on it and i get heat as a bonus.
So i mean i get money + heat.
Heater that makes money lol.
Sure im not gonna mine on it when i want to do anything on it bht when i have nothing to do why not ?25
Continue with my ALL-OUT year of JUST DO IT. Trying to see what happens when I go YOLO for a year.
It started well about 4 months ago, but I slowed down a bit. I just want to pick up the pace again and JUST DO EEET. See where it leads.
Been working on a lot of side projects. I want to finish a few. One is already pretty much finished.
Then, towards the end of the next year, I think I'll start looking for a dev job.2
Why is it ok for a girl to live off her husbands salary and not vica versa? Like fuck it ill do the dishes and play games all day and to hell with my 9 to 6 job. Starting to seem the only way i’d be able to code what i want not what im asked too 🤷🏻♂️8
"Oh, netbook is on low energy. Naaah, it should be enough for an hour."
- me, hours ago
One hour delay for the flight.
Suicide in front of the train.
Now I stand over two hours in the train and we cannot leave the train. All I want is finish my grot damn prototype...11
I've been asking myself this question for a while lately.
Can I combine the music coming out of my phone with the sound from games on my PC?
"Why?", you ask.
Because I want it!
So I started reading man pages and documentation about ALSA and PA. A couple of hours later it just works. I don't know how or why, but I did it, all by myself, because no one does such weird stuff.
I'm way too excited about this.12
Yea...I built the system. That doesn't mean I want to spend all day using it to perform administrative tasks for you and your team. I only have permissions to do things because it's the nature of the beast...not because I should be assigning leads, granting permissions, etc. Please! Someone take the reins and use the shit I built!3
Baby all I want for Christmas is Uuuuuuuuu-I design that made sense while being cute.
Late I know. But I just thought of it.1
I just switched to iOS and it's being an amazing experience.
So great to finally have access to all my files, and personalize my device as much as I want.
And it has no virus so it's all good news.1
How does everyone stop themselves getting headaches from staring at a screen everyday, all day? Migraines run in my family, so when I get a headache it's always a migraine. When I get one it stops me dead. I'm unable to do anything until it goes away. My best cure right now is excederin. It works great but I want to see what you guys have to say.14
Why does downloadmoreram.com even exist, who's paying all the hosting charges. Why would you want to host a site that continously keeps generating complaints from their more gullible visitors.
It's all fun and frolic for peeps like us, but for the other peeps, I just don't get it!3
Windows rant incoming!
For fucks sake! I think Windows have asked me 117 times if I want to update now. The answer is still fucking no!
And I don't care how much of a security improvement it might be, when your shitty update causes a Memory Management error.
So fuck off, stop minimising my game while I play and go fix your shitty update first!
Fuck you Microsoft, fuck your QA team and while I'm at it, I want to say fuck you to all versions of Windows Server as well!7
Alright so I’m in the final stages of my companies website. I want advice from you all. Instead of ads for extra revenue, I’m asking you all personally; How would you feel if a website (yes, like what the famous pirating company was doing) used your computers processing power to mine while the website was open? There wouldn’t be any annoying ads and I could simply hide it in an iframe?
Negative and positive feedback please.16
YOU CAN'T, POSSIBLY, BE SERIOUS WITH ME! FUCK, FUCK IT ALL!
THOSE DAMN ENGINEERS WITH A DEGREE AND ALL CAN'T PUT A FUCKING IF IN THE DAMN CODE!
I'M RESTARTING THE DAMN THING, I DON'T WANT AN UPDATE! FUCK! UPDATE THIS SHIT WHEN I HIT THE SHUTDOWN BUTTON AT LEAST!15
I go to the reddit programmers pages, here, the holy stackoverflow and github and it seems like everyone has 2 or 3 languages they know and love... Then i look at job applications and those fuckees want you to know several fluently... :/ ready to uninstall all IDEs
After fixing my fucking HDD boot issue then right after that EFI caused problem to start.
It used UUID and even after changing it to /dev/sdxx it didnt want to mount it no matter what.
Easy fix after all. JUST DELETE IT FROM FSTAB SINCE I have /boot on different partition and EFI is basically not needed in system.5
This is not something new but I want to say it loud again.
With all my heart, fuck you internet explorer. Windows should release a FORCED update (sorry for that) and remove it from every fucking version of windows and antivirus programs should detect it as a virus. It should be removed from existence and browser lists and also saying its name should be crime. Also, please remove it and any releated memories with it from our brains.
it kills when people say dual boot Linux with Windows. I know how painful it is. as people who like to install Linux just pray why doesn't Linux supports it all. because all they want to do is use Linux full time. 😑😖😭8
Sometimes i want to erase all my programing skills to learn it all over again, it felt great when i instructed computer to do something, rather these days i'm asked to make computer do something, first hello world was nothing but that i what i wanted to do 😊1
Me: "Yeah so I have this problem, I generated an environment and setup a NodeJS docker image on it and it returns "Cannot find public IP address", help"
SO: "Yeah but what are you trying to achieve? Here is a link of the documentation everyone saw and that didn't help at all."
Me: "I just want to... reach the fucking server? Without trouble? Please?"
Some people need some cocaine in they morning coffee, if it can help then open their fucking eyes1
(not really dev related, but a rant nonetheless)
I just got a new 3D printer, and all of a sudden, people are giving me print requests. I don't think that they realize that I don't just tell the printer that I want whatever, but that I have to either find the model online or design it myself.
Also, I have more friends now. Yay?5
Yeah, it's cool you have an iPhone and all, but pick up the call, damn it. I don't want to listen to the same tune over and over again.4
I just lost all my work. All of it.
The only thing saved is my signing key.
(For those of us who want to know, EaseUS crashed while moving blocks on my hdd.)9
I've decided to take a look at flutter today and boy... I must say I hate writing layout for it.
Not cause of all those margin thing no.. It's just too verbose, awful.
I don't want to spend that much time writing the UI, I want to focus on the logic.
Even XML was better than that.
I think I'll wait for a layout editor before coming back to it.
But I have to admit that hot reload is really nice after spending so much time waiting for my builds on Android 😓7
Netbeans, it is time you, and I, had a little talk. While I understand you can have your little hissie-fits from time to time, what happened today was nothing short of a tantrum. I saved you once, and how do you repay me? You commit suicide, thats how. All I want to do is go to a class I want to work in. This is completely unacceptable behaviour, and I will be leaving you for a raspberry pi.
yeah I am a software engineer.
yea I am a programmer too.
yeah I am behind my laptop all the time..
but no I don't want to fix your computer.
I have no interest in changing your windows, installing antivirus on your pc and so on..
just understand it , God damn these shit people :(
I am gonna toot my own horn a little in here and say that the best mentorship experience I've had comes from me being the mentor.
I have trained interns at work, and they both said that I was able to teach them more than all their programming teachers combined. I was a TA at uni and got the same remarks and i help friends in their uni level courses at a local uni all the time. The remarks are always the same.
I like teaching. And don't know why some people hate it so much yet still decide to take in a paycheck. I want this industry to get better, I want my city to get better(because I loathe it) and I really get a good feeling from seeing other people succeed and be happy.
I really want to teach. Thinking about getting more years under my belt, earn a master's degree and then I would really want to teach professionally.
My biggest issue, here in the U.S education is ridiculously expensive. Teachers that don't give their best and yet make that paycheck are a disgrace to our industry. I want to show passion to others and if possible transfer a lil bit of it.
I just want to teach man. Already work at a school and I want to make that transition one of these days.3
Just let me add a new feature to this Wordpress site, I'll just enable debugging to see if it produces any errors.
TURN IT OFF!! TURN IT OFF!!
All I could see was error upon error upon error. Mostly from old and not updated plugins.
I'll just leave it there till client decides they want a new rebranding and start from scratch1
Never had a more stressful day of dev in my life. After shooting off about half a million emails today to clients who decide that they want their sites to go live over the long easter weekend (fuck knows why they all want it this weekend) I just need some beer and some Zelda. I love this job but sometimes it kills me3
Over 100+ learning about, and configuring my i3 .config, .vimrc, .bashrc, etc. Exactly how I want it. Then one day: "Meh, time to reinstall and delete all configs!"
I have a serious problem.4
xamarin forms sucks..
Everytime I want some widget or something even simple, they tell me to use custom renderers (write it natively on each platform)..
so, how is that supposed to be cross-platform..
after all, like I always said, to use xamarin efficiently, you must have good knowledge on native development for each platform10
I brought my Playstation VR in to the office today to show it off. Found out I really didn't want to show it off.
I wanted them all to go away so I could play my games.
good evening folks,
im living in germany and want to get my first domain...
should i use ". de" or ". com", what would you prefer?
It should be an portfolio of myself if i finished it.
We have people from around the world here, how are you handling this? Does it matter at all?
thanks for help.7
No matter the hard work you want to do, how much time you want and really spend to complete something, always a scumbag project manager will set the dates so that you won't make it in f*ing time!! Really now, it is frustrating!!
Well, I moved to a new company and all seems vanilla. But you know. Now I have this lesson to remind myself.4
So, my friend and I want to start a small business. For that, we will need an online shop. Since it's not happening tomorrow, I figured I could take the time and build it myself.
However, I've never done anything of the sorts, so... where do I start?
I don't have any specific tech stack in mind, I am new to it all.
Do other OP owners have this close all button in the center?
Don't remember if this is there by default or some mod...
I want to move it to the side as I've pressed it a few times by accident....6
Meeen fvck this shit. After my student loan I’m out in this shit ass company men.
So I’m fixing a frontend bug. I’m so into it that I opened more than 10 tabs. So i called my senior on what I found then he want to test something on my workstation so i said im cool with it and then i closes all the TABS man. Comeon!!
Ps: the tabs are sequentially opened to track the bug.13
I need a compelling case for why we should not support IE11. Apparently 10% of our user base uses it and "it fucking sucks and breaks all the new shit you want me to do" is not an answer. And a possible HR violation.21
Is it just me or are there others who like programming and enjoy the work but just can't do it all day. After 10 hours I don't even want to look at a screen much less code more or read about it.6
I find interesting article on the internet but can't / don't want to see it right now so i save it in a .txt file with a random name. I never look at it again and, a week later, i delete all txt files cause desktop looks cluttered.
Is this stupid?8
Yay Google + leaked info!!
New old news again :P
Come on people if you want something to be safe you DO NOT I repeat DO NOT send it to someone else's computer. That's it. Fuck firewalls fuck av fuck it all.1
So I've mentioned before that I'm pretty much the sole programmer for my robotics team. I'm on vacation for a week, and the other programmer has to take over.
Is it normal that, since I made the code work and wrote it almost all myself, I am fearful that she's gonna fuck it all up? I kind of want her to work on it slowly so I don't worry too much...5
!rant, but friendly advice.
I see all those jokes about Android Studio being too heavy, and while I completely agree, want to ask you guys something:
Have you increased the memory it can use in .vmoptions?
Mine lagged as hell, but was using only about 1GB of ram.
After slight change in that file, it finally started working like it should from the beginning.6
So my day started well.
I come in an the DVR monitor is not working, ok lets turn it off and on, nope. Lets turn the DVR on and off, nope still nothing. Played around with the VGA cable, nope. I cant replace the cable because its hard wired into the monitor....
I grab the spare screen next to me and connect it all up and it works!
Boss tells me to throw "broken" monitor out, I say I want to test it just to make sure, connect it all up to my pc and now it fucking works!
There are days I hate technology....1
I just want to thank Steam for making steam guard key in all caps. So I dont need to fucking think about if its uppercase i or lowercase L. It would be much better if they do it on all captcha services or just fucking dont use i l o and 0 characters. These are pisses me off. They are so fucking annoying.1
Ugh I really wish I could just decide on something and role with it, haven't touched my book or website for a while so of course my websites code is all fucking horrible and spaghetti and I want to rewrite and revisit a lot of my book -,-
Why can't I just be happy with something like this!
I hate tabs to space, yep i hate it, nobody could ever give me a good reason to use spaces over tabs
(yes i want to have differend tab sizes on differend Plattforms/environments, my buddys all use 4 or even 6 as tab size, i only use 2. With tabs can everbody got his/her own size without reformating the whole code and driving diff crazy @all lines changed!!!111onehundredeleven)13
I'm at a hospital waiting and the tv is so loud so I thought I'd find a remote app to turn it down.
I found this app, one with no ads but look at all the damn permissions it needs....
What the hell,
Anyone know a good remote app that doesn't want to steal my identity?6
Is it just me, or do Adobe products just get progressively harder to use? I'm thoroughly frustrated with trying to figure out how to do simple things like annotating screenshots in Photoshop, like I used to do several versions ago. All these damn options and non-intuitive names for things and crap scattered all over the UI. I just want to draw a friggin arrow and wrap red text in a nice box with a white background!!!1
Me and my mate was building a website for a client a while ago with react. I got the client from him.
All of a sudden he said, the client doesn't want it anymore for some vague reason. So I stopped developing and left it in our git repo.
Months later I found one of his website using the website I created with react for that client with some UI changes :/3
So we now answer IT support calls. I’m a developer that does help desk support work. Is it just me, or does anyone else find that extremely fucking annoying? I don’t want to spend my day being interrupted all the time to solve an IT problem when I’m employed as a developer. Fuck sake. The worst bit about all of this is I can’t find another job because there aren’t any. Glorious.2
Well, today I installed Qubes OS on my PC. Idk how the ride with It will be but I was curious about it.
I hope I can manage all the "problems" when they come.
PD: Still have windows on the PC (games, guilty) and the laptop from my working place (also windows, It came like that when they give it to me) but I want to try to use Qubes OS as daily OS.
Wish me luck!7
Hi. I am new here. I have a question. I have been using window my whole life until now. I want to try linux now. Which one best? And is there any place where i can get all info(installion n all) about it....17
Having to think about what and when to eat is such a fucking pain in the ass. I don't want to search for recipes. I don't want to think about nutrition. I don't want to count calories. I just want something to tell me exactly what to eat, when I should eat and what to buy. Same goes for workout routines. Just tell me what to do I'll do it. I want an autopilot for that sort of stuff so I don't have to ducking think about it anymore. It's such a giant waste of time to have to manually plan this shit through, I want to use my brain for other things like math or chemistry or Programming. In fact I don't even want to cook because I am alone and cooking for one person is so ducking pointless. I lost over 40kg in the last years. I learned my lesson, most things taste like shit now because I associate food with all the pain and depression that I had to overcome to achieve a normal weight and fit body. Food went from being a joy to being an annoying necessity. I got fit and I want to work out even more but I really don't want to think about this shit. The exercises and pain and hunger are all nothing but planning is my true enemy. It bores me to death, it's more painful than running until I break down I absolutely fucking hate it.
I am really close to start some kind of open source food planner where you can type in your goals ( weight loss, muscle gain etc.) In great detail with all kind of options ( vegetarian, vegan, allergies, budget, country where you live in for local recipes etc.) And it generates a food plan for you with exact details of where exactly to buy the ingredients how to cook them etc. No fancy Ui No bullshit ads for some kind of wonder drug nothing annoying. Something so easy that it can be used as an autopilot for ones fitness and life. Do what it says and you'll look decent, don't think about the rest. Having that would be so great and I could finally think about more important shit than this. Less overhead more time for things that can't be automated.
And Yes I know that this is exactly what a personal trainer would do, but I am not going to spend 600€ a month for someone to tell me exactly what to buy, what to eat and how to work out.26
How do you guys deal with tiredness? I mean, holy shit, I feel so fucking tired all the time that it's starting to affect me at my work! Is it because I'm in school while I work? Is it because I don't get enough sleep? All I want is this FUCKING TIREDNESS TO GO THE FUCK AWAY, HOLY SHIT!15
been lurking @ Rants for some time and want to thank you all for some great laughs.
Now I come to seek knowledge.
Studying computer science and all we learn are java at this point.
I want some frontend and was looking at React and realized I need to learn js first.
So, best way of learning js coming from java.
Guys, check the Decreased Productivity app from chrome store. It helped me to browse Devrant in my work. It removes all the images and colors. You can still see images if you hover over them.
Not like I want to stay in Devrant all day, but it's less distracting
Wrote a good backup program, no one cares. I mean, its great if you want to create fast offsite backups! And it is simple to use, and has a pretty dedicated developer working on it all day long (Me)... Well, of course you would want to check it out, so here you go https://github.com/paulkramme/...7
I don’t give a fuck about crypto currency, bitcoin and all the shit. I don’t even want to know how it works.
I’m an arrogant or dumb ??
Judge me all you want,
I want to start a new website that I can use as a hub for all my side projects.
Will double as a portfolio site but mostly it will just let me share my ideas with friends.3
1. Use all my vacation days
2. Learn something that has nothing to do with computers (seriously I bore myself sometimes in conversation)
3. Drink more rum and learn about it at the same time
4. Make time for friends and family
5. No massive outages!
Mostly I want to step out of work and be more sociable1
my own code is confusing me so much that I can't even return what I want to return and been trying for hours
I'm going over stuff like a broken record and seems as though I'm not understanding it at all 🤷🏼♀️3
I know everyone hates when people ask them for help with fixing IT related stuff.
I have a different approach to all similar questions. I don't get upset or anything, I just tell them that the device they have is a little bit shit, and suggest them buying a new expensive one that is better and will do all that. Your router isn't working as you want? Buy a Cisco (a real one with $1k+ price tag, not that Cisco branded Linksys garbage). Your printer isn't working as you want? Buy some high end Brother stuff. Etc...
After first few times they just stop asking...2
I want to create multiple entries on a worklist with one message in one of the systems we work with.
I googled the issue and miraculously found link about precisely this issue...
It was a mailing list... with my messages... last message: "thanks, i managed to figure it all out"...
And no details...
Well, fuck me...2
Finally. I fucking did it. It took 2 days to get to this stage in my little game but i have 1 fucking square which i can move and rotate with WASD and rotate QE.
I mean i hated OpenGL in games since the poor performace it had against DX or Vulkan but now i want to pat all the game devs who did some real game in this thing.
Oh you want square ?
No you get rectangle because i calculate my matrix in 1:1 and not yours monitor 16:9 so fuck you and have a rectangle.
And now that all the basic fucking bugs are out i cant finally start working on something.
I mean i still hate openGL and now i hate it even more since how compicated this shit is but its fun. Why not have it easier and not have to move fucking object by moving shader. FUCK15
So my friend has this idea. I don't know much about it, but from what I do know, it sounds pretty cool and I want to know what you all think.
Basically, it's an ide on the web, that has integration for multiple languages. He wants it to make codeling quicker and more accessible, and it would also allow the poor students who have to deal with shitty school chromebooks to code.7
Hi all devRanters (if that is a thing),
I'm currently in grade 10, and I'm looking forward to a career in computer programming. I find that sometimes Maths is very intimidating, as such, I want to ask all of the devs here: is Maths really that crucial to the job? Or is it merely a requirement to go to university and get a CS degree?
Thanks in advance!8
Is anyone here using Mastodon or anything else from the Fediverse network?
I really want to change from using twitter to mastodon but I can't find all the security researchers and devs and generally cool people on mastodon.
Who are you guys and gals following? Are you using it exclusively or in addition to twitter?3
So I had an interesting problem... Let's say I have X lights which will turn on or off after I pull a lever. I know the probability of each one of them turning on, but they are all different. I want to know what is the probability of at least half of them being on after I pull the lever.
I wrote this shit show to do it: https://jsbin.com/jizocohebo/edit/...
Can you do better?8
I'm really in love with Linux, I use it for work and programming. But at Home I still have a Windows Desktop PC. But All the Windows Updates in the past days (and even today) and the other Shit the Shit Windows has, I want to Switch to Linux even for my Home pc. I think for the first time I'll install it on a separate disk.
I want to try some new Linux Distribution. How about elementary os? I Like the design, its really attractive.
Thank you for Sharing your opinion with me :)4
I'm studying games development at university and as a course it may not be the best but I enjoy it. With the department courses like Computer Sciences etc run alongside and we're given the choice to swap if we want. At the end of first year a few left the class and a few came in.
Forward to now where we're actually making games. I'm in a team of 4 working on a minecraft clone using Direct X 12 (50% of the module). Immediately one asked "who actually wants to make games?" to which they all said "no... This course is pointless, I don't want to make games" . So now I'm stuck on a team with a group of people who think its all stupid and want to do bare minimum work and want to solve no problems or do anything interesting with the project...4
I'm tasked with a light redesign of our public site and it's a fucking shit show. It's using this old-ass grid system with pixel-based widths and it's just totally fucked and whoever put it together had no clue.
...I keep going back and forth between trying to work around it and unfucking it because, while I'd like it to be unfucked, I don't want to spend all week on this and I hope we toss it all out and do a proper full redesign in the next year or two anyway.
Using manjaro xfce for personal use for like a year and despite not distro-hopping I'm kind if sick of it
Last week was the first time I used macOS at work at I loved it.
I want a better user experience for my personal computer, but I'm too lazy to rice and mod everything from acratch all over again.
I heard elementaryOS has a mac-like UX. Anyone can reccomend?5
Turns out the reason the selection of RA cores on the PS3 sucks so much dick is that it has a half-complete OpenGL implementation.
Fuck it, we're doing it live. I've got CFW, i'll dynarec if I damn well please. If it won't compile i'll fucking make it compile, I don't give a fuck about "sanity restraints" and "needing OpenGL 2" and "LV1 required" I can fucking replace all of LV1 and LV2 if I fucking want FUCK YOU
The Cell processor is pretty beefy, I could prolly do it all-CPU if I wanted.8
Still waiting for that confirmation email. Multiple resends and still nothing. My inbox has nothing from devrant. Now I can't ++. I want to ++. Seems like I can't have anything I want at all.
That's old. I deleted and created my account again but the rant was still saved so I thought why not start with it.10
I hate my printer...
All day I was creating my CV, and I was creating it in Word from MS Office, in .docx extension...
I exported it to .pdf, it added margins, okay, I just need to live with it...
After that, I clicked `print` button in Word, so I wondered that will look the same as it was on preview before printing....but it wasn't...it looks horrible, even if I choose the black-white option, and all my work fucked up 'cuz stupid printer doesn't want to help me, fuck you my printer, I'll buy better one soon...
The usb drive I just used had a little mechanical switch so that the computer wouldn't recognize it. Why?? When I want to deny a computer access to sth. I just unplug it. It took me ages to figure out what the problem was (the switch was in the same color as the rest of the drive and it is in a really awkward position, also it is dark) and It doesn't make any sense at all. Why, just why?2
Mainline XPeria P progress update:
Non booting. No UART. Nothing.
Kernel seems to Data Abort even before uncompressing or whatever.
So far i want to burn it all.5
C# can be great and all but sometimes it just makes me want to put a bullet in my head because i can't figure out HOW TO FUCKING USE A GOD DARN FORM ITEM IN A FUNCTION OR THREAD!3
For me it all has to do with doing stuff outside of work. You are not a developer for your 9 to 5. You are a developer 24/7 and it is one of the few professions where you can work on something all the time if you want to.
Not many professions have that.
In my case it's mostly books, blogposts for respectable developers and podcasts.
I also like creating a problem and making myself find the solution to it.
If you really want to learn something you need to touch it, not read about it.2
I really want to marathon-watch all of the Star Wars movies in order before The Last Jedi comes out, but I'm putting it off because I'm dreading having to watch The Phantom Menace.3
I see this term “full stack developer” pop up all the time, does anyone want to explain what it means? A dev who knows all parts of the stack, and a stack is what..?7
I really want to use gnome but I cannot deal with non global app menus and the extension does not cover all applications.
Idk why I'm ocd about appmenus, never even owned a Mac but global menus are just a super design.
XFCE it is... Would use cinnamon but I'm not running mint and I always break it in another distro.
What do you guys think about appmenus? I know in Windows it is what it is, but I can deal there.5
Been ‘working’ on this game for the last 5 months now. I love making it but I haven’t gotten any where because there are too many bugs. Like, it’s all bugs.
I started the project when I started learning game development and with all the time I’ve put in it I don’t want to kill it.
Anyone else have a project that they are working on, where they don’t even make progress on it, they just fix bugs?3
spent all day finishing up a feature that i did not want to do at all and think its not the time for it...
after 5 hours of coding & debugging i finally made the PR, took the rest of the day off, felt happy i got rid of that task along with the nagging of the PM. life was good.
At 8 PM, some test i never heard of failed, my branch was the issue and it got reverted and now ill have to work on it again on Monday to fix it. fuck my life.
Control your searches like an ADULT damn it!!!
So we have records that can have any of a bazillion different reference numbers associated with them. No big deal. Everyone does right?
Our customer's love to run reports and so we have this one option for "just look at a hell of a lot of reference numbers". I call it the 'fuck all' search.
Really it is just there to find something that you don't know where a rando string or number might be in the record and just want to do a "fuck all" search across a number of likely fields to find it... and then presumably you'd be an adult and refine your search from there. LOL yeah right...
Customers get lazy and include that stupid option in their reports and we get a lot of.
Customer: "I always run this report (that includes the fuck all search) and now it isn't working. I want records that have ID 2222."
Me: "Yeah well that was only working because you were rando typing '2222' in like several fields and it would find those .... but now you quit doing that so it won't find them. If you want ID 2222, click the drop down and search by 'ID'. That will find it right away."
Customer: "But I want to just search by 'fuck all search' to find it..."
Me: "But then you get all these other records too right?"
Customer: "Yeah but I just delete them out of the spreadsheet ... "
Me: "Look watch this <screen share> there, look all records with an ID of 2222 and no more extra records you need to delete!!! How great is that?"
Customer: "But why do I have to do it this way now, I want to do it the old way..."
(granted I could add their ID to the fuck all search but we try to avoid adding too much because it gets out of hand / stops being useful the more fuck all it gets)3
When you think you finally know a programming language really well but then you start a project and want to do it all on your own but you dont even know what to do... so basically I'm dependant on tutorials and Google.. until I am good enough to do it on my own..
I've worked with a couple of languages but python won my heart at the end
Been using it for 5 years now
But I feel I need to revisit java and c#
But my python conscience whispers:
"Yu want to dump me now... of all the things we've done together"5
Stayed up all night to make interactive data visualizations from CFTC data and now I want to show it out.
No one is interested. Why Earth why?
Whatever, where is keyboard, and turn off the lights.
- Dark music plays.
I really hate it when the old guys always get all the say in our architecture. They always want to do it in stupid low level languages too. Ever heard of Go and Scala? Put away your cane grandpa5
I currently have to finish some intermediate report for a big international research project which my CEO forced us into because of the incentives. But he doesn't care for any of the research and just want to get the money.
Due to my inexperience I promised some things for this project, which now prove to be untenable. And now I realize all this and I get to deal with small anxiety attacks (especially today).
I just want to say "fuck you all" and go, but this no real option for me. That makes me totally exhausted, especially because it feels like a personal failure. :/2
It has to be Keybase.
It is exactly what I need - A secure yet practical cloud storage, where only you own the crypto key, with the added bonus of maintaining a blockchain-based identity online, with proof system and all.
Also has a secure PKI-Based E2E chat when I want to talk to someone about something I don't want the general government to necessarily know.
Definitely recommend the service! Even with the odd decision to include an option of a Lumen crypto wallet or whatever, you can just ignore that feature if you're not into it and it doesn't slow you down.3
Look... As much as I want to believe this... We all know it won't happen...
The tie between iOS and the in house ARM chips is something you can't replicate with just a new piece of hardware...5
COFFEE is an issue all coders face so I made a video to tell you my solution. Watch it if you want..More don't i don't mind..
Why is cd so anoying. I tried serval stuff with all kind of setups. But everything just doesn't work good or really expensive. I just want a easy way to have a develop and production environment without to much problems or an high price card.
Does anyone havr any tips. Already wasted so much time on it8
Hey all, can you guys recommend some great books on database theory and design. Something aimed towards intermediate towards advanced. It doesn't have to be sql, I just want to learn how to make a kick a#@ db.
Is AngularJS out to date ?
I just finished my first app with Ionic v1 and it worked perfectly as if want to but during my researchs I found that all the posts about AngularJS are a few years old.7
Why does everyone want to work at Google? I know it's a great job and all, but the amount of blogs talking about how they got their internship at Google and how it was their life goal makes me suspicious.4
I give you a warning that asks if you want to continue and I tell you what continuing will do... if you need further clarification ask! Don’t press it 100 times. (Feature they wanted to send out an email blast to all customers ~2000 people)1
I have been an iOS developer for 6 years.
I used to get so excited about Apple announcements. Instantly want to watch all the WWDC videos as soon as they went up.
Now I just don't care. TBH that's how I'm feeling about software development in general now. It makes me sad that I've lost my passion 😢6
I decided to take this week to write unit tests for some code I already finished. I am new at it and I really want to incorporate as part of work. (Damn deadlines).
I am already seeing the good effects. Bugs I didn't catch before are now showing up.
Now I am wondering what I have been doing all these days calling myself a developer...
Intellisense that would fix all my typos! 😜
I want it to be that good that I can just squirt on my keyboard and it still recognizes sensible code!
The lead UX person at my company wants to get rid of the focus outline in our web apps. Some other people want to change its styling to be less apparent and remove it from some places all together.
I'm trying my hardest to explain why it's there and how important it is to accessibility but I'm at the point where I just want to scream at them.
It seems now that every weekend all I want to do is just not be around people.
During the week I grin and bear it, the fact that I'm going to have to see, be around and interact with people but the one time I don't have to is the weekend, but that's the time that other people always want to do things.
Why? Why is it so hard to explain to people that a lot of the time, I just need to not? I just need to not be around people, to interact with them in any way. I just want to be on my own, away from it all. Why is it such a difficult concept to grasp?3
I started down my career path to make games. I have never really made anything good. I think I am finally fed up with not doing this. So I am going to be working on selecting a game engine. I want 3D, I want to experiment with voxels, I want a permissive license, I don't want something huge, I want to contribute back in a meaningful way, it needs to support 3D. So after looking around I found Godot. Another programmer who lives near me uses this as well.
Does anyone else have some good positive experience with game engines for smaller projects? I have played with UE4 and Torque3D/2D. I don't like the bloated feel of UE4 even though its a very cool engine. I didn't like their install system at all. T3D is old and not up to date.5
I just can't sit at a computer anymore without opening my terminal anymore. Is it wrong I kinda want to go back to when that's all we had?2
Have you ever worked with leaflet.js to display openstreetmap? I do and its great.
But now I want to display multiple markers on a map and the map somehow only renders random three markers. Wtf?
I'm lost. All results on google show me how to do it right, but it just doesn't work.16
Not a data loss exactly but a loss indeed.
It was my first week at my first junior developer job, I was just learning git and completely messed it all up. I lost around 3 hours of work.
I didn't want to ask anybody for help (because of that useless junior feeling, you know...) and wasn't as good using Google as I'm now.
So I re-did all the work. Thankfully, I have a decent memory.
If there's something to learn here is ask for help when you've used all your resources and still think you need it. Nobody is going to have a bad opinion about you ;)
I should learn how to stop at dead end.
Sometimes I am too deep into problem and I just cant stop programming, debugging and thinking about it. It would be better to make a pause for like a hour, turn my brains off and later start again but I just cant. Even if I leave my desk my brains remains at the problem. Sometimes I want to stay at work to solve it... xD Eventually I solve the problem and after a good sleep I rewrite and refactor all code becuase I found a better solution in like 30 mins. It frustrates me because I dont know how to turn off...
I was invited to on-site interview with Amazon, but the more I think about this opportunity the more doubts I have. After reading a lot of reviews, it is expected to be the hardest job with a lot of pressure and overtime. My biggest concern - the poor work life balance. Spending all my life at work is not what I really want.
Should I give it up or does it still worth trying?5
I figured it all out, where all the bad code comes from, I know it now!
I think good developers need two things, an ego that makes them wanting to be competent and perceived as such and (very important) a problem with authority!
All the bad code is written by people who wanted to be liked by their teachers. The PM and PO are their teachers now and they make everything possible for them. Technical debt and human costs are swept aside when the authorities want a stupid feature now - because they have to like you and you need to be a nice pet to whip!
Hoy to all!
I need advice for NNs.
I wanna make a chess engine that uses an NN. (see collabs)
I want the NN to output a probability for each move.
However, i dont know what data to train the NN with.
If i train it with the moves from an engine, it simulates an engine and that sucks.
If i train it from games, i only see one move, and thus, cant train the other moves.
My thougt is, that maybe, i let the NN play an entire game and if it loses, it adjusts itself somehow. But how?
If you wanna contribute, email me :firstname.lastname@example.org
"Microsoft programming chief to devs: Tell us where windows hurts you"
You must be kidding, right? Since Windows 10 it hurst the moment it is installed on my fucking PC. I don't want those fucking cloud functionality on my fucking PC. If I want it, I would work on a Mac FFS!
Let me decide when to update my god damn machine! Even with a fucking enterprise edition it is not possible the way I want it! Yeah, I don't have to login with a Microsoft Account, but there is always a small, little, Microsoft-Hating-Devil in my Head telling me: "Who knows, if they don't sync your clipboard even, if you don't login with a Microsoft Account?" (Cloud synced Clipboards are the next bis shit coming!!!)
There is not much left, and Linux will be my all day OS (second boot atm).4
Hey I recently started working and had a few questions regarding fulfillment and sideprojects.
Although I am a game programmer now, the game we are making is not at all something I find interesting. I find myself wanting to work on some side Projects at home but its difficult to manage my time (obviously) and I cant really relax.
I do enjoy the work making the game, like, I like making the systems, I enjoy programming it, but I dislike the gameplay and the games thematics, so its a mixed bag.
I only worked there for 2 months and the game takes at least all of next year to be made. I dont want to quit, because its my first job and all and it would be stupid I dont really habe a reason to quit.
I guess I just want to hear how others are handling a situation like this2
why do all erp solutions i know have a poor design?
one of you guys surely works for a company which sells erp solutions. as i am a user AND a programmer.
i just have to ask: do you have the feeling that your UI is bad?
and if - why is it like this?
i dont want to attack someone. just want to know the reason why all of the solutions i saw have bad UI or are just "user-unfriendly" (like you would say in german :D)1
I was checking my work Inbox and the first thing that I saw was a recruiter email.
So, let's check, is this my personal email, no.
Hmmm, maybe this is a prank or a test? check email domains and everything looks legit.
It seems that recruiters want to get developer attention at all cost nowadays. :D
BRO IF I SEARCH A SLOWBRO HOLDING A FUCKEN KING'S ROCK, IT MAY BE BECAUSE I DON'T OWN SLOWKING BUT WANT ONE SO WHY YOU WANT A SLOWKING IN EXCHANGE FOR THE SLOWBRO IT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE AT ALL.
So my schol has this softwarecenter site from which all software must be installed (if you aren't admin). That's fina and all, i mesn they want to conteoll what we can install, and provide some paid software, BUT WHY THE HELL DID THEY DECIIDE TO USE SITE THAT ONLY WORKS IN IE!? EVERY TIME I OPEN IT I HAVE TO COPY THE LINK FROM CHROME (default browser) AND THEN OPEN IE! IT DOESN'T EVEN SUPPORT EDGE! (Btw all the software found on this site is out of date.)
Started working on the game I want to make. Decided to go through the android publishing and it took like an hour to get it all set up. CI/CD not easy with game engines either.
you have probably around 20 days holiday per year.
After 60 year old everything is more or less a gift, so I wouldn't count on it.
Let's say you are going to work 30 years. That is 600 days to do whatever you want.
It's less than 2 years.
Try to count how many days left of freedom.
Suddenly all the things I have to work on today have lost all priority6
So reinstalled to learn React Native... and React as well while I'm at it. Can that be done or I would learn React and build a webapp with it first? (I don't want to build a webapp though...)
Also I want to target Android but seems all books target iOS... Are there any books for Android?
I'm just following the Facebook GitHub now.14
I never want to do another SSRS report ever again... It’s mind numbing and tedious and crashes visual studio more than it builds. And yet, there are always more to do. Always... I swear I’m going to drown in all the paper. Queries aren’t bad but seriously, can’t go an hour without something crashing itself.
0. *gets on podium* All people being able to work together without yelling at somebody. For just a day if that's too hard.
1. A job in computer science without having to study all of physics and chem till 12th grade, It's a requirement here that you need to study all three sciences if you want to pursue just one, and I wish I could escape from it, it's stressful.
2. Not Dev related, but hugs.4
What are the best practices when making a blogging website?
I'm creating an addition to my personal website to include a blog, and want to follow the best practices for it. Do I just save everything in a JSON? Or do I just make every entry a "page" in Gatsby/React? What have you all done? Would love to see some examples.4
So I have a STUPID question about Machine Learning.
And I am being serious when I say this.
I want to get into machine learning but I really don’t want to accidentally create the AI that kills us all.
I’m not trying to boast my abilities or anything I’m not that great but I just
one don’t completely understand how machine learning works?
And two how do I keep it from learning more than I want it to??
I’m not trying to be stupid I’m just trying to understand so I don’t make anything that I regret.20
I just became scrum master for my dev team XD!
I started reading all the info I could find on the net about it but still want to ask you guys for any advise 😶1
So we are crashing when uncompressing the fucking kernel by the looks of it.
2 solutions to this it seems. Either you fix it somehow which i dont have time to do and well I dont want to port U-boot totally.
Second one is well kinda crazy but normal.
If it crashes in uncompressing the fucking kernel then well dont compress it at all.
So i grab the uncomp image.
12.3MB Well shite.
I pack it in boot.img and its 14.9MB and partition is 16MB. Well this is close AF.
Anyways. I flash it. Boot it and no UART as expected. I expected data abort tho. Nothing like that tho. :O
So now either this shit isnt loading at all. Or i just dont have UART.
Sadly i have no way of testing that. So either i can make UART work and then i will know that yes it works or well IDK.
Is it too much to apply these notification settings to in-app ones also, the list you can see by pushing bell button. I don’t wanna learn who ++ed me or new comments.
I know we can mute rants manually but it is an extra manual effort. Auto-muting all rants i touched except direct mentions is what I really want.4
Start with simple projects then keep improving it until you reach the depth level that you want.
I used to learn a new language/technology every month, I did that all this year until now, I learned 3 new languages, 2 new databases, 1 new paradigm, so many frameworks and methodologies and design patterns applying in real world projects !
Okay i need help
I am about to buy an mid 2012 MacBook pro with an ssd. I wish to place the ssd in the main bay and the stock hdd in the optical. All i want to know is that will it work, has anyone done it??2
Am I crazy?
I'm trying to set up IoT, but I don't want to rely on pre-made scripts or github for all the answers. I'm trying to do it in C, and I'm trying to do as much of the actual programming on my own.
Every time I tell someone what I'm doing they tell me I should just download a python script that does it all for me.
I don't want the "easy way."
I'm trying to take agency in this project; I want to be proud of it.1
I want to finish my Chrome extension.its an extension that you can create a "workspace" and save URLs to that workspace.You can then click on a button and it will open all urls in the workspace as tabs and there's another button to add the current tabs url to the workspace.i want to add quite a few features to it.It is currently on github.
When a customer decides they want half of what you delivered last time and half of something new to be used at the same time.
Ah, I think that'll take us a year to make that mess work!!
Makes me want to scream!!!

I need opinions: Amazon Fire Stick or Google Chromecast?
I want Hulu, Netflix, Crunchy Roll, Amazon Prime TV, and WWE Network.
I welcome all opinions. Remote strength, price, ease of use, and stability are my main concerns.
I also might jail break it and/or try to develop apps for it.
Sorry if a repost but this is a random thought from an alcohol addled mind.
I would use a laptop on every tv, but cost vs benefit says no.3
different browsers rendering same things differently...
i have a slider with a given width of 7em. in edge it renders as i want it to, chrome fucks it up and makes it way smaller and display way off position and its parent div is way too big, firefox is somehow between those 2? all browsers are scaled to 100% 😥😒4
Yesterday Ibdid buy an iPhone. I did it to learn swift development and people started to tell me that it was stupid.
I know I could have just used my emulator on my Mac but I just do not want to, testings apps is better in their real envieonment
I hope you guys understand my point, I am getting tired of all this "you stupid iPhone owner" shit
PD: I regret nothing3

Anybody try to memorize anything large? I am thinking about memorizing books just to do it, and to prove to myself that referencing crap isn't required all the time. Might be interesting.
Posting here because I want my community's opinion on the value/nature of the question.3
My website is now deployed on a Digitalocean droplet using Terraform to provision the infrastructure and Ansible to configure the server. It creates users, sets up SSH config and deploys the required containers I want all using an Azure pipeline and an Azure storage account to store the TF state.
Now I need a frontend... ._.2
I once bought an external Seagate 1tb hdd. A month later, it corrupted and I lost everything on it. I ran all the diagnostics and tools to retrieve the data I could. But I was still missing a lot.
Why would anyone ever want to buy a hdd if the fail rate is much higher than ssd and ssd has much more other benefits.
Is your data not worth a $100?
Never getting an hdd again.8
So with Christmas coming up my family asked me to make a list of the things I want, all of it adding up to a maximum of €25. Me being me I really don't know what I want other than that I would like something educational and programming related also something to learn machine learning would be nice
All help would be appreciated9
I dont get it, why do all those authentication providers want you to use a separate webpage to handle the login, why cant i just have the form and "login with ID provider" buttons on my page.
Why is the user forced to take another step in the flow...
this is UX 101, comon!5

Should I develope an app to make some money
Or learn some cool things about security
Or maybe both ?16
Does anyone else ever get really down when you spend too much time away from your project? I feel myself retracting from society and all I ever want to do is drink coffee and teach myself stuff and work on my game.
It's getting to the point where I don't even want to see my gf and I don't even think about food. I see this happening to me in real time, but I don't want to stop it because I know it's what I need to accel. It's just, damn, it all makes me kind of sad and reflective.5
So, just a random thought.
I'm attending my 2nd year of university and I'm thinking about what should I do after I get my degree (I should get it the next year). Most of my classmates want to get a master in something but I would like to work because I want to demonstrate to myself that I can do whatever I want but at the same time I feel like I'm not enough yet and that I will fail all the interviews so I'm in a fucking limbo between two choices. Aaaand that's it, sorry if I made some mistakes but it's 2:30AM in Italy and I'm pretty tired.3
So i have not yet graduated as of yet and when i do i want to have a good job and all.I have been hearing this about internships and all and i have no prior experience whatsoever.I wanted to know if i should first of start of as an intern and then pace it up becz i am still in a learning stage and i want to have a solid foundation before taking a full time job.Any advices gentlemen(and ladies).1
"Anyways trust code that you wrote before but... never rely on that!"
I wrote some code mounts ago, now when I want to refactor it see a bunch of shit, I delete them all and after hours write exactly the previous code!!! just because i don't put some STUPID comments... 😑1
99 Notifications on the wall..
But what if want number 100, how do I see that ?
I'm used to systems where there might be 500,000+ notifications and I've not got around to viewing them all yet..
Once it hits 99, I could be missing something !
Well, I probably am !5
I'm interested in learning c#(aspnet cire, wpf, uwp etc, all the stuff I can do with it). Does anyone have any recommendations in where and how to start? I'm familiar with the basic concepts of programming, and I work as a front end developer, but I really want to expand my knowledge. Any advice would be great!2
I came across an issue with Visual Studio 2017. I'm unable to collapse multiline comments, there is no - sign in front of it like with code blocks.
At home it is no issue and I can do this without problems.
Ive looked online and all I can find is people not being able to collapse comments in VS Code. And people who want to collapse everything but the comments, but the comments do get collapsed.
Is it a setting I cannot find?2
Whenever something awfully fails with GitHub pulling (read: When you use Github), I have the horrible habit of manually copying the code I want to be saved, and starting over in a new local repo. After a while, I found out I have around 9 local repositories of the same remote repo stored in one folder, too lazy to clean it all up.1
I want to buy a server for private use for a long time and now I found a good offer on ebay for me. The problem now is:
How do I explain the need of a server to my girlfriend? She does not really sees any use for a private server at all and it still is a big amount of money we have to discuss. I want to host a media server on it, a backup server and a gitlab server for personal projects. Any other use cases I can explain to her? Really want this thing.
Gonna talk to her after work in a few hours about that topic.5
I want to understand Linux services better. Most of the time if I want to run a process in the background, I just use nohup and &
And put the commands in either init.d or crontab.
But lately I've seen some more complex scripts where it's called like logstash start/stop which does a free things including recording the PID somewhere?
In Linux terms it seems to be called starting a daemon. But what's the difference, benefit to all this complexity?8
Getting my own island where the weather is always good, the beaches are white, the water is blue, the food is plenty and good, the internet is fast and I have a lot of servants to do all my chores. My wife and kids can also come and I'm free to invite whoever I want, whenever I want.
What? Nobody said it had to be about programming! 😱1
So I'm working on a game prototype and want to toy with the ability for people to create customs mode/maps/campaigns and upload them to a community marketplace.
I'm looking to host all my data using Google Cloud Console (I use it for personal stuff so i trust it).
I want to use the app engine to minimise some of the overhead from using a VM, but really would like to stay away from SQL if possible, would you guys recommend building a PHP back end or a Node.JS back end, I would have all the data get saved to a private bucket if you were curious how i would store stuff.4
I am so tired of working for big multinationals with lots of collegues.
It feels like you are expected to remember -everything- anyone ever said at some point in time.
I honestly can't keep track of all decisions made in the past ten meetings in the last week, what all other twelve teams are working on or the personal preferences of somebody on the other end of the globe.
I just want to write code. Is that so much to ask?
I think the Dev got it all wrong here, Apple is a fashion brand that focuses on UX not innovation.

Also, I am not good with redux yet. I am still learning it. And this application does not have redux implemented.
So please, can you explain how can I achieve this?7
I've had it with startup marketing sites. All those landing pages look exactly the same, they do a poor job in communicating what the product does and why I would want to use it, and their marketing videos have the same irritating, empty, hollow, feel-good tune that makes me wonder if there's a single company that does the marketing for all those startups.2
Anyone have a spare 2TB external hard drive they want to lend to me? I’m trying to re-partition an 8TB drive but it’s being finicky so I have to take all the data off and wipe it. Luckily I only have 2TB on it. I’m going to ask my IT director if he has one today. Wish me luck 🙃2

I want to build a voice assistance like Ok Google from scratch using ML.
Actually, I'm unable to figure out How can I achieve this 😅.
I want App like When I give command like Open DevRant then the App should work like Google App.
Ok all Good.
But I want to know If I write a code to open any App like Open APP_NAME
then It is coded by me not my app is learning this.
Sorry If I'm unable to Explain this to you.
I want to know Should I have to code all procedures for doing task like open any app, calling any number, etc myself or is there any way that my App can learn on its on 😔.
If somebody understand this please suggest me what is best for this.7
"Chances are, unless I’m a designer, I don’t know what I want. All I know is I want something functional that looks good, is comparable with my competitors, and features constant colour schemes for branding. I’ll look at other designs that have already been created and ask for something similar. Hence, it is important that you can take the information I give and help me visualize what it is you think I want." - Aditya Mahesh
Is there some sort of Query Builder for ElasticSearch?
I have ELK setup and in Kibana can generate all the aggregation visualizations but now I want the data to be usable in a program so it can generate reports like who are our top users.
But the aggregation queries seem to be very verbose... not sure how anyone can generate or understand it by hand vs telling Kibana I want a chart with X and Y axes using these terms.
IDeally I'd like to have Kibana then tell me what's the actual JSON/Elastic query it used to generate that but can't seem to find something like that.1

How can I create a git release with only distribution files?

Ahhhhh.... Now i want to really know how developers make softwares, ROMs, chatbots using ML and all these type of stuff.
- When i go through the guide for making ROM for a smartphone or a chatbot the writer asks the reader to take the code from github, everybody just give github link and move on. None tells how the developer wrote that bunch of code. I really want to learn core concepts behind all this. I know how to code but i can't apply it in real life applications. For me there is no bridge which connects coding to end products. I don't know what to do next?5

I try to exclude... takes ages to work out that while specifying the dirs is absolute you can only exclude relative but from what? I want to block a/b but not a/c/b but no it's all you can only block all b b it a/b, b/b, c/b, c/b, a/c/b, etc.
I google for other solutions, nothing but trash, docs a trash, here's some examples but we don't tell you the actual behaviour. All I want is to get everything in /home/hilldog/emails but not /home/hilldog/emails/topsekret how hard can it be?
I use the source but what's this, BeefJerkyIteratorIteratorBananaSpliterator all over the shop how much convolution and LOC does it take to provide a basic find facility?
$finder->in(explode("\n",trim(exec('find '.escape_args(...$good).' -type d ' . implode('
-o ', prefix('\! -wholename', escape_args(..$bad))) . ' -etc | grep -vETC \'pretty_patterns\''))))3
Sometimes I feel like an idiot and this time Google searches are not my friends. I have managed to get all the information I need from a Google API in one single call. It's all in the returned object. But the values are protected and they run deep. Now is there no elegant way to read them? I cannot imagine writing this:
$page->getResults()->$lineItem->getTargeting()->getCustomTargeting()->getChildren() just to find an Array inside the object. I want the first one so it goes on ->getChildren()->getKeyId()->getValueIds()
What is it I fail to grasp? Sure I could make it a bit more bearable with a loop but there must be a better way than iterating a new method for every level in a deep object! I understand the value of protection but I just want to bloody READ the values! And no, I wont var_dump.9
I'm in an inner conflict: I want to use Google Assistant, but all these privacy dramas/nightmares seem pretty scary to me. Is it save to use?2
Fuck focused inbox on outlook. Who thought it was a good idea? Why dose every company think they should put algorithms on everything to decide what we want to see? I want all my emails not just want outlook thinks I want to see.... Im glad I switched to Thunderbird and only have to deal with it when my colleagues emails go "missing"5
Was going to do java exam today, can't really say it was smooth sailing.... to even start the exam, firstly the booking system must've fucked up since I booked myself for this exam but I am not on the list. Second of all I worked nightshift before this and manage to get one hour of sleep, my temper is at an all time low. I am not worried about the exam itself since I could do it in my sleep (been coding in java +4 years) but I just want to get it over with so that I am finnished with the course
I'm going to make a website and I want to know what CMS is better to use.

I want to stop drinking coffee but everywhere i look there is always wallpapers and cups and shirts telling me that this is our fuel reminding me about it and i always wonder if it will be possible for me to stop drinking it. I want to stop drinking it because i just can't control myself and i drink it all day while i'm at work and at the time i arrive home my stomach hurts. Every night i think "tomorrow i wont be drinking a single cup" and then here i am ranting about it.1
I have the weirdest mind. I cant seem to work at all or struggle alot but when it comes to after lunch walk, the hours before home. Im like a code machine and do soooo much in that time that it scares me that i can't seem to switch it on when i want1
I don’t know if they really don’t want Sass or if they’re just scared to try it.
Not all new techs are horrible.
Hope one day they will realize that using CSS preprocessors is way better. And it’s not that as complicated as it sounds. Jesus Christ.
@ pro-CSS frontends, any thoughts?5
The constant re-explanation of how stuff should be done, whether it's business logic or even in simple programming itself. When it comes to developers, I find myself repeating myself a lot simply because they can't be bothered to understand what business rules are needed as all they want to do is just code a solution and get it over and done with.
Fuck me Amazon cert manager is so fucking complicated. Just do it all for me; why do i have to providing a route 53 entry (TECHNICALLY 2 IF I WANT MY NAME CORRECT) BEFORE I set up my load balancer??!! I should be able to test a load balancer first and then add on tls, not have to get a cert all set up and then sit on my fucking ass when the load balancer shits itself1

Drupal. What is that for a CMS ? Should not be called this way. Feels like there is no UX at all put into it.
I really want to run away from work right now.

Does anyone else have managers who are wishywashy on how to track work? Tickets! No not that label, this epic.... Put in hours worked on a ticket, but also make sub tasks.
It is like micro management hell.
All the while all I want to do is get something done!
