Friend : I will do this when I get back from work.
Me : But you are working from home, aren't you?
Friend : Yes, but I am at work, right now.
Me: And how does your route back home look like?
Friend : I switch input source from my work's laptop to gaming rig.4
Yours truly might make the money by new year to buy themself a new laptop.
And only then the projects that were left to die, will finally see the light!
Fingers crossed tho! 🤞9
I'm having less patience with people lately. Every time I ask the HR about the issuing of the work laptop, I get seenzoned. I'm already past probationary status but these motherfuckers haven't issued me a laptop yet. Also asked another dude who joined the company with me and he said he's experiencing the same. Tomorrow, I'm asking my manager about it directly. I've been using my gaming laptop and my electricity bill went up since then. I'm considering buying an M1 and freelancing 'cause why bother working for a company that doesn't even supply me with the tools I need?
Also, despite my regular status, I still don't have paid leaves. I'm waiting until the three month mark to see if it shows up. If they fucking dare extend this shit further, I'm quitting on the spot. I also haven't received my pay today. It's been a few hours late. Are you gonna go bankrupt by paying me, you fucking garbage? This sounds all too familiar. I ranted about the previous company taking so long to give me my last paycheck until I mentioned that they are breaking the law. Do I always have to be this fucking angry to get anyone to fucking move?
Most of my colleagues are nice and all but these types of bullshit, I just cannot. There are better companies to work for. I don't give a fuck about your free flights or discounted flights, I'll grab all the airplanes you own and shove them up your ass if you don't give me what I'm owed, you lazy cunts. I'm tired of playing nice with you idiots, your spineless psycho CEO, and his stupid Tesla car. You're all shit to me.
Fuck all of you.18
I'm truly surprised how well Linux is coping with my 32GB RAM dev laptop :)
Currently open and actively used:
1. 2x Chrome windows (70-100 tabs total)
2. 5x IntelliJ Idea projects
3. 3x AndroidStudio projects
4. 2x different grade daemons
Still snappy, still quick af!
I wonder how windows would handle that. From my xp 2 IDEs already were a struggle35
OMFG, Dell, why can't you be normal and make your batteries die like any other batteries - by simply switching the laptop off immediately when the charger is unplugged???
Guess what it looks like when a JD25G (XPS13 9530) battery is dying (still 88% health)!
Constant screen flickering (yes, even in BIOS). Good thing I'm not an epileptic - my screen is fucking strobing!!!
I know it's a battery, because I had the same issue some years ago when I replaced the died original one with a cheapo made by GreenCell. Boi that was fun - I saw my laptop do miraculous things I never would've thought of! Screen flickering was one of them. As soon as I replaced that turd with an original one all these magic powers went away.14
going back to my personal windows laptop till the time new company provides me a new mac, i gotta say i missed this. I don't know, but i think i can never be a extreme mac os or linux fan as much as i like windows (even though my next personal laptop is also going to be a macbook for sure)
mac has the best performance out there when running emulators or heavy intellij ides, but the user experience in windows is 💋💋
i missed how my cursor ran like a tiger on arrow keys press, the ability to create files on right click, having multiple hard drives and organising my files/folders there, being able to control program locations... all these stuff is cool to me. when i was using ubuntu , i could surely do all these stuff too, but it still felt a little unpolished.
i know am about to get roasted in the comment section. so let's begin 😂3
