Search - "mood"
Not that much dev-related, but still...
I wish I had a way of decompiling the code of my life, correcting it and then compiling it. I was diagnosed with Depression yesterday and it has turned me absolutely empty. The kind of empty where you feel like you're a void.
I'll survive. I know that much. I also know that it's going to be even harder than it was before.
Just for lighting the mood. This is also my struggle.50
- Referred to manager as "Mein fuhrer" to a colleague in slack.
- Reading an email from a recruiter.13
Lately my mornings have started out with sitting on my front porch with a cup of coffee and a smoke for about 15 or 20 minutes scrolling through devrant.
Probably why ive been in a better mood these days31
I'm sure we've all seen a rain binary cloud picture like this. But have you seen one that fits your mood? 🤔🤔20
Me: *receives SMS from ex girlfriend*
GF: "I'm horny, whatcha doing now?"
Me: "Not much, just working on the update system to this tool which will be used with mod. Can't talk right now"
This was the fastest "murdering of the mood" I ever done.11
relationship with dev perks (just happened):
GF : *bad mood* i'm hungry
Me : Let's go get some food ! *trying to cheer her up*
GF : No.
Me : Ok, whatever you say.
GF : Do you really wa--
Me : Whaat? you said "No"?
GF : Don't you see abstraction in my face?
Me : so what ? you want me to Implement it?
GF : NO. PUT IT IN YOUR GODDAMN MAIN FUNCTION.
Me : ok let's go *still don't understand what she meant*
GF : Good Job.71
*during my final job interview*
*holding the folder that contains my cv*
interviewer: Wait, before I open this I would like to guess which position you're applying to.
me: Hmm okay sir? Which position?
interviewer: I see you're applying as a back-end developer?
me: Yes sir, I am.
interviewer: Aha! That's because you have a long hair? Like it is a requirement for every devs to grow their hair?
me: *laughs* i think so?
interviewer: Well our devs here also has long hair. You'll meet 'em soon.
That sets the mood of my interviewing process that leads me the job offer. LOL.13
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) headphones in, whatever music that your mood requires at the time (my taste varies from classical to country to blues to jazz, pop, rock, metal and even heavy metal (growls) at times).
libre.fm is a good source for non-redundant music. The community channel is actually very good. (even though some crap do creep in every once in a while)
If you can zone out the noise around you, have a coffee machine within your chair's (assuming it has wheels) roll-range - you're all good.
PS : There's one problem that you can never rule out - interruptions from people around you, for that, you make a list of predefined answers :10
-You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
-What mood is that?

Seriously, how am I still in a good mood when I have to deal with this?14
Crazy how git got its name:
The name "git" was given by Linus Torvalds when he wrote the very first version. He described the tool as "the stupid content tracker" and the name as (depending on your mood):
- random three-letter combination that is pronounceable, and not actually used by any common UNIX command. The fact that it is a mispronunciation of "get" may or may not be relevant.
- stupid. contemptible and despicable. simple. Take your pick from the dictionary of slang.
- "global information tracker": you're in a good mood, and it actually works for you. Angels sing, and a light suddenly fills the room.
- "goddamn idiotic truckload of sh*t": when it breaks

I finally get in the mood to work on my side project and GUESS WHAT? THE API IM USING FOR IT IS FUCKING DOWN 😂🔫7
So yesterday, literally just hours after i basically said on somebody elses rant "friends are overrated," i ran into a friend i havent seen in over a year and we ended up chatting for an hour after she gave me a ride home. I was in such a good mood after and I realized its the first socializing ive done outside of talking to work people or my partner in over a month. I like to spend most of my time alone, and since i discovered coding i try to spend every spare second writing code, but it turns out a social life is actually really important 😯😯4
anyone else just wake up one day and just isn't in the mood to do any work and feels like they are making no progress.7
I woke up nicely, made my coffee and breakfast, got into coding mood, really motivated.
"Huh, how am I supposed to do this... Let's Google. Ah, StackOverflow has the perfect solution to my problem."
*irritated internal scream*
On call part 3: I'M BACK ON THE CAL FROM YESTERDAY FOR THE LAST 6.5 HOURS AND THEY'RE JUST DOING WHAT I TOLD THEM TO DO YESTERDAY. Is it because I'm female? Does having boobs mean I don't know how ssl works and that I can't possibly know about networks? I'm seriously about to just hang up and tell them to deal with it on their own.
Cup is there because it expresses my mood.12
starts weekend with full mood to work on personal project.
End up watching youtube videos all day long.1
Someone wasn't in a very good mood that day :p

Always the same story:
Marketing: hey I'm gonna do a demo to a customer. They were asking for feature XYZ. That's ready on thr staging server right? Do you think I could use the staging server for the demo?
Devs: well feature XYZ is not 100% done. Basically just feature X is done, and it still has a few bugs. The deadline ain't for another month, since we gotta finish ABC first. I guess you could use the staging, but it has a lot of bugs.
Marketing: the staging had so many bugs! Why didn't you tell me?! It was so embarrassing showing it to new customers! Anyway, they loved the new feature. We need it to be ready ASAP.
Devs: What?! That's gonna mess up with our schedule. You know what? Fine, but feature ABC will have to wait another month.
Marketing: Well, it'd be ideal if we could do both...
Devs: Pay for more devs or dor extra hours.
Marketing: Just do XYZ. It's a pity that you'll have to push back ABC but it's fine, XYZ is more important.
(I might ask, if it was so important, why didn't you notice so in the meeting where we had decided that ABC would be prioritized?)
*tons of working hours later*
Devs: There, we finished XYZ.
Marketing: Yay! Wow, this month we'll have two major features done: ABC and XYZ!
Devs: No, ABC is not done yet.
Marketing: What? But the deadline was this week.
Devs: It was, but then you decided to prioritize XYZ and we said we had to push back ABC to get XYZ ready, and you agreed.
Marketing: Did we? Fine. But do it quick.
Marketing and their mood swings.5
LEARN THE FUCKING WORDS!
I know that English isn't the native language of my country, but for fucks sake, if I'm telling you the right way to say/write it, remember it!
It's called ROM not ROOM
It's called Mod not Mood
Am I good with Custom ROM's? Yeah
Am I good with Custom Rooms? No, I'm not a fucking interior designer
Am I enjoying Moto Mods? Of course
Am I enjoying Moto Moods? Vruum Vruum bitch.16
So my company hired a new UX girl last week, today is hers 3rd day at work.
Its 11.30 in the morning, I've been working for couple hours, on my custom module (if you have worked with drupal you know how stoked you are to write your own god damn code once in a while), im blasting some trance through the headphones. It is an early spring and the sky is clear. Perfect day non the less.
Out of nowhere this new UX girl appears near my desk, grabs my tea spoon without even asking and goes to stir her god damn tea. She throws it on the kitchen table without cleaning and goes to her desk.
I got so god damn triggered, this ruined my perfect mood for the upcoming 2 hours. Still cant think of a reason why she would do that, this is just plainly rude.15
Today is my birthday... apparently. Yes I didn't wake up going "Woo! Today's my birthday! I'm another year older!!!"
But I did get bunch of emails from recruiters, Fandango... So basically spam...19
No... No... No!
The game engine is not in charge of code optimisation, if your program runs like ass; it is 99% going to be your fault...
Sick of seeing people judge engines because of the poorly optimised things made in them by half assed developers... Why do the good things never get any attention where the shit gets all of it... Why?!
(Just had someone crack the shits at me because I'm not using a 'real' engine and am not a a 'real' developer because I'm not using unreal... So I'm in a fan-fucking-tastic mood after that :-D)2
Yet another meeting that I was forced to join where my presence was absolutely not required9
Current mood: running and hiding from our IT admin.
I know he wants me to install Nod32 on my workstation! A Linux workstation!17
The music I hear while coding can describe my current mood:
Dubstep and other electronic music -> chilled and focused
Movie soundtracks -> everything I do today is working fine
Anime Openings/JPop -> in desperate need for motivation
Metal -> why is that son of a code not working?!
What kind of music do you listen to while coding?18
Introducing my everyday weapon against bugs.
Colour pattern to change depending on my mood or my rage against PEBKAC.5
When you are so angry about something you slam your fist on the keyboard, break the Enter and surrounding keys, rush to the closest shop that sells keyboards, fail to buy one because they're all too shit, come home and end up fixing your keyboard, then get even more pissed off because you had already gotten excited about that new keyboard, and end up writing shitty comments for shit you haven't even finished yet because you're too pissed off BECAHSE EVERY FUCKING THING IN THIS WORLD IS FUCKING BROKEN AND SHIT. AND NOW I HAVE A MIGRAINE AND MY LEG IS ITCHY FOR SOME STUPID FUCKING REASON!17
I've just come back from a business networking event. There was a speaker who gave a talk about not wasting time.
On of her points was catching up on emails, from your smart whilst waiting to go into meetings, as that's apparently wasted time.
All I do whilst waiting to go into meetings is read devrant :)
It puts me in s good mood :)3
I was working from home and had a long skype meeting. It was boring and I knew I wouldn't need to say anything the whole time. At the same time my girlfriend was in the mood so we did it on my desk with one headphone in my ear in case somebody asked me a question.
Definitely not the worst meeting, but the most memorable for sure.2
- Currently coughing my lungs out, I'm not working tomorrow to keep my colleagues safe
- Cat is purring on my shoulder
- Listening to some dope ass synthwave
- Updating the JetBrains IDEs so that I can work on something to busy my mind
- It's 3:45 AM.4
Being bipolar sucks. Hypomania kicks you in the chin and your "realize" you're a shitty pprogrammer and your world is ending. Sometimes you get stickers from devRant thouch. mood++
Burn out from studying today. Drifted off into a doodling mood and ended up with a wireframe. I need a nap.3
Woke up this morning with a fuck this shit mood. I need to write test specs for a system I don't know shit about, and it seems no one who work with this system wants to talk to me, so I gave up and started devranting and reading a game dev book. Fuck this shitty job.2
Me: Man this has been a killer week! Coding bootcamp has been better than I ever could have dreamed. Home life is good. Nothing could kill my good mood.
*opens up Facebook*
*Sees Microsoft is trying to pay billions of dollars to take control of Github*
*Starts cloning repos like crazy*14
Updated linux-next again.
Got another 2 FPS boost.
AMD is optimizing the shit out of their open-source drivers. And as i see in mailing list we will get BACO on pre-VEGA GPUs. (Bus Active Chip Off) = power saving feature.
Basically means much better battery life for me HEHE.
It got conflicts with linux-next and im not in the mood to fix those just for that.
But anyways AMD is making 5.5 another great release.
When you're coding on a VM so slow that it takes at least 5 seconds for eclipse to save your changes, all because company thinks its too risky to have source code on the bloody physical machine6
Yeah sure Phillips, Lets not support android 7. Because when you make an electronic device controlled by an app that helps people with chronic pain. I'm sure those people would like to spent their afternoon finding out how to downgrade android just to keep using it.
The device is called pulserelief and when its working its great :) but when you're in pain you really are NOT IN THE MOOD TO DOWNGRADE YOUR ANDROID VERSION.
found this website that helps me to concentrate while coding, https://noisli.com
Different types of background sounds choose according to mood3
When you find a question on stackoverflow and you know the exact answer.
But you're not in the mood to explain and put details.
Usually, when I'm in the mood to code, my GF will tease me by sending a lot of text messages at once.
When I'm not in the mood, she had slept earlier :-|3
Not a rant, just a tought:
I was thinking, how amazing is to work at software industry, I mean, is there any other field of work where you can start without knowing little to nothing of the thing you are going to work with?
Got hired to work with a friend of mine in his uncle's company, started as a technician, providing support to clients, after that, started coding little windows applications using c#, even tought, I didn't know shit about it, time passed and we needed a mobile application, then when I realized I was already coding for Android in Java even though I didn't know nothing about it too.
It's just, you can do whatever you want if you will... It's amazing! I love doing what I do.
In that mood where I'm excited to code until my hands hit the keyboard then I just go off to YouTube or smthn2
Opened Devrant to say...
"Office is so hopeless that I am not even in mood to rant about all those stuff"
But saw a post that I had typed last time but never posted it....
My week at glance:
Monday: Sunday night hangover
Tuesday:Prepare report for progress meeting.
Wednesday: Progress meeting
Thursday:work little bit for next week progress meeting.
Friday: weekend fever and hence not in mood to work.
#big #company #work #culture5
Hey hardware guys of devRant, I'm in the mood for a picture thread. Show us some of your failed projects!11
In a new country and in isolation.
Laptop out of charge. Plug converter broke so cannot connect my laptop to power.
Ordered one. Need to wait one whole day for it to arrive.
Perfect gloomy weather to just reflect my mood.
Not even allowed to go out for a walk.
Wrote down some pseudo on paper so I don’t forget.
Only to realise there was a problem with it.
So I rewrote it correctly.
Now just waiting.6
Are you bored? Just start programming with BrainFuck and you won't be bored anymore but rather in a mood, which is best described with the word "suicide". :)

Since I just bought a mystery bundle of steam games and received codes for games I already own.... and I'm in a good mood ☺️
I will drop the keys into the comments section for anyone who wants to take them.
- Star Wars - Knights of the old republic 2
- SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition
Leave a comment once you use the code 😏 don't be a dick!18
Many people told me that all my face expressions look pretty the same. Whatever my mood (angry, happy, surprised) there is no much difference that appears in my face.
Well I didn't believe them until I tested a "Facial Emotion" program written on Python, and it gives me ~almost~ all the time that my facial expression is: Neutral.
Well, I think the algorithm is not well implemented 😐8
My compartmentalizing skill is not good enough. Wasted last night by doing nothing and falling asleep because of a bad mood. I have shit tons of tasks.3
How it feels to be an intern : "Omg I helped people making an app in reactJS I feel like I improved a lot in the past months"
How it feels to come back at school : "omg I have trouble writing a simple algorithm I feel so dumb I'm the worst dev in the world"
That's the difference of working in a team with a great mood and close to no-stress AND studying while having to deal with social anxiety.
The conditions in which I work have a huge impact on the way I feel about myself, my skills and basically on my motivation.3
Not a rant but I've been wanting to do this for a while now. Added some rgb mood lighting to my desk that's connected to a Raspberry Pi. Making a web interface next to change colors/set modes remotely :D3
Don't ever talk to non-tech people about tech. It'll fuck up your mood.
I've talked to a non-tech person lately, so...11
Just got a phone call that slapped me with a raise and I was in such a shit mood today and I’ve got fucking flu... a raise is just what I needed6
Some people should get their heads out of their asses to actually see that their fucking bad mood wont lighten up by randomly throwing insults around and generally being a dick.4
So the vacation mood wore off very quickly and the usual nobody will understand or nobody can accept me mood got activated.15
Do you all get the mood when you don't wish to code anything because you like to Google new technologies and platforms all day?
I'm having such a mood today.2
I was fucking paused that some asshole made me spill my beer, but these crazy cabrones have a way to lift up anyone's mood. 🤘8
dream project you say. now we're getting somewhere interesting.
a voice/gesture activated automatic assistant that uses face reconition for identify checking along with it being able to see your mood.
tl;dr; aka jarvis6
Have you ever reach a point where you lost any desire or mood to do anything? Like when you don't even want to rant about the fuckedupshit you are in.9
In a shit mood from developing and being an adult so fuck it, let's get drunk and delete windows and install arch as my main driver...
Im sure nothing will go wrong...5
Well I have a normal dream except I can see the people in it as an object with properties all over them. When they are in a bad mood I tried to debug them2
Today I was working in a university studyspace. Some girl noticed my dark theme IDE, running some tests and such and assumed that I'm a computer guru. She then asked me if I could help her with MS Excel or MS Word. To which I answered "sorry, no". She might've just been trying to start something with me, but that was a deal breaker hahaha (seriously tho, if I were in a better mood I would have helped her)9
Having a shit day at work and all of a sudden get a message that my big bag of beef jerky got delivered, mood instantly raised!!!1
I went out partying with couple of friends last night, it was nice ...
So I met this girl, she was nice and beautiful, out going basically we were getting each other's vibes and the mood was right ... We had a drink together and everything was cool until I learned her last name ...🤣
I couldn't help it I cracked up it was so intense ...
her last name was "chrooto"
I know that I have ruined my chances with her, but I don't think I could've been able to hold it6
Just read this comment in my code from a few months ago... I guess I was in a strange mood at that time..
// Listen for fuckers. Also known by their muggle name: users.2
Reads horrible code
Opens DevRant to rant about it
Reads some stories
Ok, better mood, I can continue working now.
What was my planned rant about again? Ah, it can't be that bad.
Goes back to the code: Oh no, it is that bad...1
devRant is great because it keeps me in the mood to programme, create and envision new projects. Cheers guys.1
Hey dfox... The web version of devRant only allows you to "--" a rant or comment? Were you in a bad mood when you wrote this? Lol8
That irksome moment when you want to rant and vent about a particular workplace incident but wonder if your coworkers are on devrant too.
And they certainly might figure out no matter how cryptic you are.
*puts mask back on*2
Not gonna lie. I’m in the mood to make a game and I’m gonna try it. I think it’ll be fun. Wish me luck!
For anyone curious I’m gonna be using Godot because it’s not bad and It’s not nearly as fat as Unreal and Unity. They’re not bad just not what I want rn.7
can you guys suggest me good TV/Anime series with few seasons or episodes so I can use my Sunday. Not in a mood for work.41
I brought my laptop and stuff to school the other day, it was my final period before school was over and it was more "do what you want" kind of thing. So I was playing with my terminal (since I have Linux) and one of the students came up to me and asked "What are you playing? Is that a game?", luckily I wasn't in that pissy mood so I just tried my best to explain to him what I was doing.6
Is it just me or are image uploads broken? Whenever I attach a png file pressing the "Post" button does nothing. Text alone submits fine, so it's not because of my dumpster fire of a text.
It seems now I gotta rant about my failed attempt to post another rant because I'm in a ranting rant mood.23
yeah !!!! i thought nothing can't break the mood of a developer ... but some fucking natural disasters matters..
wk22| Tom Scott,
I just love watching his videos. Its always inspiring and getting me into a somewhat good mood.
Even the non tech related ones.2
Don't take everything personally.
- it's not always about you.
It's almost end of the project and my manager is have started to heat things up.
He is daily angry and blast up on me on each sync up.
I used to spend the whole day in angry mood too thinking about how he treats me.
But now I have learnt not take things personally. It's his fault, his issue, his life, his words, not my fault.4
"Calvin: You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood." - Calvin & Hobbes3
Music is serious lly the ultimate drug for me, it can change the mood of a day and inspire me beyond anything else.
The problem is i keep forgetting it and go for days without it, then a couple of days i put my headset on and my productivity skyrockets9
When you are all alone at office, stuck with tons of work, nothing to cheer up, browsing every single keyword because you are dumbest person and with millions tabs opened up in multiple windows..
This shows up with a light mood to cheer you up...
I missed to mention that this guy may be working late, but is super lazy to take a screenshot and copy to mobile.
Late night after everyone has slept, switching on all the 3 monitors, reclining on a comfortable chair, fetching some snacks and coffee by the table gives me the perfect mood to code!
There is silence all around 😌2
When the sales guy decides to strike a conversation and breaks the code flow.
No, I'm not in the mood to talk
That feel when its monday and you know have a lot of work to do, but you don't seem to have any mood on coding...
time to disturb my coworker1
Ensure IDE has latest updates. Put on headphones. Start music (exact playlist depends on mood and location). And we're good to go.1
It's terrible how my mood is greatly dependent on whether my code works or not.
Feeling like shit at the moment.4
Some little things can really boost your mood. Thank you @dfox and @trogus and thanks you all guys for being a great company :)1
Mood swings are:
When you get bored of black theme and change to light theme.
And later changing back to the good old dark theme6
I suck doing frontend development. I'm slow, and I usually struggle to obtain the results I'm looking for... but today I'm happy because I almost finished the website for one of my side projects:
I'm going out of a long depression, and seeing things done is really helping me to improve my mood and have more energy.
By the way, thanks to the https://getzola.org project, it would have been impossible to me without it.10
A small thunderstorm came in yesterday brought chaos and terror for 1 hour and left like nothing happened
It left the whole city without the internet
Over 300,000 people dont have internet of course including me and i am pissed the fuck off because i was in such a great mood to get shit done today23
seconds into 2019
I see one incompetent fucker asking to eval in Node.js..
A FUCKING FETCH OF A NPM MODULES IN CDNJS
you know what's the reason?
Fucking kill me unless you're some dumb bitch who uses npm modules like some braindead motherfucker who doesn't know what a number is, node_modules takes only an average of 3.6MB
Compared to RubyGems who takes 40+
Seriously stop this. I wanna hang myself because my 2019 put me in a shit mood1
>mvn clean install
[ERROR] Bruh, couldn't find any of these classes you're talking about.
>mvn clean install
[INFO] The job has completed without errors.
Seriously, why is Java/Maven/Spring so temperamental. It's like it has to be in a good mood to compile for me.4
Me: * gets into work in a surprisingly good mood for a Monday *
Coworker: " hey so you know that shared folder that a LOT of our stuff is on as well as a LOT of stuff in the entire IT department is on? Yeah it's gone."

# Don't like ice coffee
# not in a mood for hot drink
# but I need coffee
Most difficult decision
ITS FUCKING COLD IN THIS HOTEL!!!! I’M FREEZING TO DEATH!!!
I really am in a coding mood right now but I’m tired anyway and the lack of warmth doesn’t make it better..
Gotta find an internet coffee shop or something like that..5
I've been struggling with some financial issues lately. I haven't told this to my family bc I am helping my mom with money, hat wouldn't help.
Sadly, I got two general tickets for WebSummit 2019 and I thought "okay, I am nearby Portugal rn, somebody of my circle could go with me and have some fun, I feel so blue..."
No one. Not a single one. Nobody.
"Maybe with those Telegram groups of JS developers..."
Maybe it sounds like some fraud or something, so they didn't answer. I even mentioned to an old entrepreneur friend of mine, and he didn't even answer me.
Disheartened is the word for today. I don't know, I am not expecting that people can join this adventure just bc is awesome, we all have bills to pay, but at least an answer would be fine.
I know it is not a fun story, and there are people in worse situations than mine. I just wanted to do some catharsis bc I lost my laptop.
I still have bills, two tickets, and a new kind of miserable mood.
Thank you for reading.2
My current state of mood:
Too many dumb fucktards trying to be clever.
It's everywhere. Even when I close my fucking work apps and just want to have a fucking break, some dumbtards of friends remind me of the insanity outside.
I always laughed about the paranoid people who built bunkers somewhere in nowhere for very obscure and most of the time lunatic reasons.
Now I'm envious.
Winter Depression is also setting in and sleep wasn't good in the last weeks, too.
It's funny how one can be furiously annoyed and pissed 24/7 and at the same time be totally tired.
3 weeks sitting alone over Christmas and new year since paying out vacation and overtime is not possible.
Don't expect me round for the following weeks, think my mood will get even worse.7
I am in the mood for anything at 11 PM-5 AM.
Cleaning the house, studying, coding ...
Juices of ideas, energy and focus are just overflowing.
Too bad that I have to follow "normal people" schedule which starts at 9 AM.
I feel compelled to share this - I think every programmer needs to read this.
I know I'm right but I'm not in the mood to validate my argument, that is a privilege I reserve exclusively for real arguments - usually containing foreign user input in dire need of sanitization -which kinda sucks...
so instead here is a morsel and a link, enjoy the read.
Got a deadline coming up and not in the mood to work. Like, brain is not cooperating at all. ☹️
... Maybe I'm just too stupid for this.7
Don't you love it when you're in a full-on creative mood but the whole universe is somehow working against you doing anything productive?
Woke up in the morning with bright ideas for my app. But my PC restarted and my IDE crashed. After getting the IDE up, the project no longer builds. After spending hours to try and fix it, reinstall IDE and ............... voila............... everything works. I mean WTF?1
I fucking hate it when i give someone my phone and the first thing they do is to increase my screen brightness, deactivate eye care mood and start viewing my pictures 😡😡😡😡😡😠😠5
This client call me when I was in bad mood, telling me that some calculation in my program was wrong.
He gave me the excel speadsheet to show me the correct calculation.
I look at the calculation for hours, only to find out that his excel contains an error (the number of day was wrong or something)
He apologized, and I said it's okay. Everyone made mistakes.
But I was still pissed off that day. My bad mood became worse....
Til today, whenever he called me, saying there is a wrong calculation in the program, I still have a very bad impression. Even after it's proven that sometime my calculation really goes wrong...1
I get this compliment when I just started to learn C# and wrote a class to convert DB time zone on azure windows and Linux app services.
“Wow, didn’t know you can convert nullable datetimeoffset this way, I’m going to use this class in rest of our Projects. “
It really boost my mood for weeks.1
going out of the cafe when some stranger stops me, he asks if I'm a programmer, said his friend told him,
i was like yeah, i mostly do web stuff, but can work on any project.
he then said, nah it's just about hacking that person, or even just his facebook account, i suppose it can be done..
then he looked at me noticing that I'm a few mood calories away from murdering his sorry ass.
he asks if it's not bothersome to ask
i said nah it's fine, just that every word you said after "hack" is bothering me terribly,
he just stepped back and walked away4
Was in the mood for distro hopping and installed Parrot (home edition, don't really care about pentesting but privacy features were a plus). Lovely distro. Already feel at home.1
So for those of you keeping track, I've become a bit of a data munger of late, something that is both interesting and somewhat frustrating.
I work with a variety of enterprise data sources. Those of you who have done enterprise work will know what I mean. Forget lovely Web APIs with proper authentication and JSON fed by well-known open source libraries. No, I've got the output from an AS/400 to deal with (For the youngsters amongst you, AS/400 is a 1980s IBM mainframe-ish operating system that oriiganlly ran on 48-bit computers). I've got EDIFACT to deal with (for the youngsters amongst you: EDIFACT is the 1980s precursor to XML. It's all cryptic codes, + delimited fields and ' delimited lines) and I've got legacy databases to massage into newer formats, all for what is laughably called my "data warehouse".
But of course, the one system that actually gives me serious problems is the most modern one. It's web-based, on internal servers. It's got all the late-naughties buzzowrds in web development, such as AJAX and JQuery. And it now has a "Web Service" interface at the request of the bosses, that I have to use.
The programmers of this system have based it on that very well-known database: Intersystems Caché. This is an Object Database, and doesn't have an SQL driver by default, so I'm basically required to use this "Web Service".
Let's put aside the poor security. I basically pass a hard-coded human readable string as password in a password field in the GET parameters. This is a step up from no security, to be fair, though not much.
It's the fact that the thing lies. All the files it spits out start with that fateful string: '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>' and it lies.
It's all UTF-8, which has made some of my parsers choke, when they're expecting latin-1.
But no, the real lie is the fact that IT IS NOT WELL-FORMED XML. Let alone Valid.
THERE IS NO ROOT ELEMENT!
So now, I have to waste my time writing a proxy for this "web service" that rewrites the XML encoding string on these files, and adds a root element, just so I can spit it at an XML parser. This means added infrastructure for my data munging, and more potential bugs introduced or points of failure.
Let's just say that the developers of this system don't really cope with people wanting to integrate with them. It's amazing that they manage to integrate with third parties at all...2
A bunch of testers got laid off at my company and we're facing a release. So our PM put all developers on testing with a total of 6k test cases (!).
The overall mood at the office is not good..4
My most productive is honestly when I'm on a caffeine high (my personal favorite is a 24oz NOS). I have pulled all-nighters. Accidentally.
But getting INTO the mood for programming is simple and kinda embarrassing. I get excited by seeing programming keywords in real life. For example, at a job I worked at, there was a whiteboard what had the word "include" on it forever. Not about programming at all. But every time I saw it I was reminded of c/c++ and it made me wanna do some code. I don't know why I'm like this.
in the mood to spend two grand on a pc solely to say "I compile this thing like 0.4 seconds quicker :)"9
So, you have some coffee, make up your mind, and sit down to begin the project you need to submit the next day.
You fire up the machine and bam! Windows takes it's April update - "Do not turn off your PC", and a fucking rotation of evil dots on the screen for eternity.
And it goes on and on, on and on, till you have lost all mood for work.3
As a programmer, I puts two glasses on my bedside table before going to sleep. A full one, in case I gets thirsty, and an empty one, in case I don’t.
I thought iPhone simulator was ONE THING that worked smoothly but NO, it is also a load of crap, hogging away the memory. Can’t develop ANYTHING without spoiling the mood because of this slow performance. It’s the same with android studio, Xcode, android emulators, and now simulator with vscode is doing the same thing. It’s 2020 you’d think a developer can write code smoothly on a huge MacBook Pro but no what a fucked up world, I’m hungry again, I have eaten up everything what to do I hate fruits !!7
Security is a joke. And people don't seem to get it. Especially Data mungers.
I've spent about half an hour trying to work out how to securely connect to power BI using PowerShell in a renewable manner for unattended access later on.
Every single example I've found seems to involve you storing $user and $password variables inside your script. If I'm lucky, they're going to pass them through ConvertTo-SecureString. And nobody talks about securely storing AD auth tokens, or using the Windows Credential Manager.
I know it's possible, but it's going to take me ages to work out how from all sorts of disparate sources...16
When you hit "Run" and realize you wanna make one more change but Gradle ain't in the mood to stop...
Evening: I have no idea how to do it, 4 hours of programming are just wasted.
Morning: Oh, I changed couple lines in yesterday code and everything is perfect now.
According to my housemates, I laughed myself to sleep last night. I suppose I was in a good mood...1
Spotify you little shithead how often do I have to reset the random mode for you to finally play stuff at random and not loop the same 20 songs? WTF? you literraly have like 1k of them in this list and you loop 20! HOW AND WHY <.< i even pay for you. Get it together.
Anyone else feeling murderous mood today for no reason? I'm not even at work yet...2
It is very satisfying when I am in the mood, but I often find it hard to find motivation to learn. Does anyone have any advice for studying techniques? General advice would also make me very grateful! :-)
I hope this is OK to post here..5
*Sits on PC
*Some Progress On Project
*Tries Debugging and gets frustated
*Goes to FB and also does Gaming
*Goes to the bed for sleep, with sad face3
Does anyone else ever stop themselves from working on a side project on the weekends? Like I spend 5 days a week coding, and I try to take the weekends off just to balance my life, but I have this feeling in the back of my head that I should be working on something. Should I start smoking pot or something?7
In the mood of doing nothing because I have so much shit going on. Anyone knows that feeling?
Also so many (cool) projects I would like to do but no motivation to start anything... I have no real reason to... I’m just waiting for motivation to come back one day - but it has been a long time.. :(2
Its a very simple algorithm for me:
Start with a deep base edm track.
Get a green tea.
Start work. The mood is now set.
(If frustrated): go out for a smoke and continue again.
(If frustrated again): see ur managers face and start lashing out code at ur ide.
(Optional if at home): random faps do help.1
So I was in a great mood and decided 'fuck it let's try making something, have a couple beers, make some taco's and break out the old coder lxmcf'...
Started cutting lettuce and then BAM! Cut a large chunk of my left index finger off...
So now I am unable to type properly because my finger is making me angry with pain, guess that's what I get for wanting to get back into programming8
Current mood: Preparing a communication plan for how to explain why we have decided to throw out the entire 3-years-worth-of-work code base for the frontend project we have inherited and rewrite it from zero because it's just. THAT. BAD.3
Really not in the mood for work.
But since that is not an acceptable reason to ask for a day off, I wonder what excuses I can make to get out of working today... 🤔11
I just remembered outta nowhere, how they’d fucked up the last episodes of game of thrones, so much for all the fan theories and the waiting ....turned off my mood.3
Been interested in trying Polymer for a while so gave it a try today, two hours later now and about to dropkick my laptop!
Followed the "this-looks-super-easy-guide" but that kinda turned into shit when it was time to run gulp!
How the f#*k can it be so hard to find information and get this to work!
Guess I'll just stick with my Android development and forget about this side project because it affects my mood in a bad f#*king way👹5
Me after a colleague screwed me over at work, wasted my entire day, insulted me, and tried to make smalltalk to appease his guilt and shame after he realized he was in the wrong:
"Fuck this guy. Fuck that guy. Fucking fuck. You're all shit. Fuck all of you. I want to die."
Me, two hours later, after a workout and mood is lifted:
"Hmmm.. I'll fuck this guy, that guy, that woman over there, this chick over here. That black dude, that white dude, that Asian chick, that whatever that is. I'd fuck them all and we'll live fuckily ever after."
I'm here again :)
After some months of sporadically reading your posts, but not in the mood for answer or say anything.
Nice to feel encouraged enough to became active here again. :)
Before i bought my gaming laptop, i used to think if i bought enough games i would find a game for every mood. But all i got is decision fatigue after buying 20 odd games, trying to decide which one to even install first. I am still bored almost the same amount when i used to have factorio and Dwarf fortress as the only 2 choices.19
i am tired of the mood swings that come with being alone. whenever i make something i am proud of i realize having no one to share it with.
unfortunately i am not the hermit i would like to be.12
oh staple of police and fat techies
how i sing my love to thee
when my brain slows
you nourish me
when my mood sinks
you uplift me
but oh gentle sweet lord
the sacrifice ! the sacrifice !
miles must i wander weary of soul and body
or cursed do i sit a heavy head on heavy shoulders
and widen the throne beneath me!18
Put on big headphones, explain you are busy, or just show that you’re not in a good mood.
No seriously, i so don’t have a problem with PMs here. If i receive 2 emails in a day i can call it busy already. Including the daily standup then ofcourse.2
Tired of all those timetables, application, motivational quotes ...
Coded my own assistant : Robo1100
Still full of ifs but properly understands what I mean (I don't have s very wild vocabulary )
Can I call it artificial intelligence?
Some of his features:
- determining current tasks according to date and time
- tracks the task and show you how many percent you've done
- plays different musics according to your mood (if you start nagging he'll play motivational rock and so on)
- does simple calculations for you
-gives you simple informations like time , whether,...
- remind you the events of the day
- reads a rsnfom cool quote at startup
- most importantly speaks with s human voice
What music do you listen to while programming?
I personally listen to a lot of epic film music or metal, depending on my mood.14
Once a programmer writes his first line of code, he can never undo it.
Despite of no-code mood, I opened the IDE and started typing with a single finger.
What's wrong with us? We breath code
The mood everytime I spend hours on a stupid bug and I get frustrated but then manage to fix it... "I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW THE RAIN IS GONE..."..."IM THE KING OF THE WOOOORLD"..."WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD!!"..."BAAAAABYYY COME HERE I HAVE GOOD NEWS!!!"... I just got that mood again
Layoffs, hard to see good working people leaving the building.
You can feel the mood of the company the next days/weeks is a killer of productivity.
Today was a shit day and I was in a bad mood. I now had to do a very annoyint thing for uni so I got a bar of chocolate and wanted to reward myself at certain milestones. The bar is half empty and I haven't even started yet.6
Hey guys!!...how about the idea to know, what clothes should I wear today, depending upon my mood..using facial recognition4
After reporting several bugs/blockers, demanding the product owner to set up some kind of notification her answer is:
We know the problem, first ocured 2 years ago, but I'm not in the mood to do something.
Ticket: Closed/Won't fix or Clodes/Works as designed
Listening to rain sound or pleasing sounds while coding helps me think straight and sets a good mood for me to complete a task.Music sets me straight.
So you find out a bug in your own code... a bug that nobody noticed in the month it was out and about... because nobody used that feature the manager asked for in one of those mood swings... that yet you so had so carefully built with love...2
My daily commute to work is tiring me the fuck out, so much I wrote this little poem to my nagging friend just now..
I'm in no mood to think,
life currently flows by,
extinction, on the brink.
While I stand by,
and let things sink.
Now I'm "lowkeyemo-san".
I'm (rarely) in the mood of coding (on a weekend!, that's weird for me).
Anyone can suggest a small idea? I'm planning on doing it with flutter, so let's keep it simple.
If I manage to get some progress, I'll keep you updated and post the repo link
Decided to reset my Windows OS after 1.5 years. Such things happen when you're not in the mood to code.1
Can someone come and clean my desk? I not on the mood and my code to clear the desk seems to be stuck in a wtf loops.4
Mood eternally suffering. I swear if i hear the word production one more time, i am gonna kill someone, we have been "trying to push to production" for this huge project for the past 3 mondays + today, everytime went shit.
From shit that should be made in the last minute(big changes), to missing reqirements from the client's side to misunderstanding between our team, leading to missing things due to the huge work load.
Someone just end my suffering already 🙃5
Tomorrow is my dateline to finish my project batch. But, here i am with no mood and i feel like i'm worst developer ever.4
Meh-man has an interview later.
Meh-man is in a very rut and shitty mood since Monday.
Meh-man feels like he should care, but fuck everything.
Meh-man feels meh.7
You go very early to office with happy mood to code what you were thinking all night....and when you reach there is no network nor power (to laptop)....
Well... I guess I started learning how to program so many years back when I thought I could fix my girlfriend's mood swings with code. Guess what: we are married now and I'm still learning how to program!2
Anyone with experience in microdosing psychedelics, how's your experience so far? I'm mostly interested in effects on mood, creativity, and productivity I guess - but feel free to share other aspects of it.22
I hate mondays. Everyone in the company is in a bad mood, nobody wants to work and the clients are annoying. Mondays should be abolished.
No one asks us developers about our mood and that we spent the weekend working instead of lazing around and having a party.
I have decided to avoid contact with clients and companies on Monday.1
Can I just say, I am NOT a fan of fixing things or doing things for people because THEY work on the WEEKENDS. I mean like I'm chilling and maybe working on some stuff or having my me time, listening to some music or whatever and that's when you have someone from an internal team in your company (not my team) come to you with a bug or some FAVOR because apparently they're working even though it's a SUNDAY. It's just ruins your whole freaking mood.
Idk if I sound cocky or whatever but I just had to let this out.3
def day(self, mood):
if self.job.time > 28800:
if mood == bad:
I was in a okay mood. Then i drank. I had fun skyping with some people (dont judge, it was their choice). Now im drunk, alone and getting more and more depressed.
Im honestly considering going to McDonalds and give away a few rubber ducks and show some card tricks, maybe ill get some friends. Or haters.
Conclusion: I hate when i get drunk. When im sober, i cant wait to get drunk. This isnt even a conclusion, i have no idea what im doing.12
You know your life is fucking with you, when you need to start your college project from square-fucking-one again, for the forth time & looking through devRant isn't improving your mood. 😐2
I'm in the mood to learn a new programming language. I know python and I enjoy it. I want to learn a new language, but I'm not sure what I want to learn. I enjoy web development, but I want to learn a lower level programming language. Any recommendations?27
1. Finally someone who understands what I mean, someone who wont make A into B "becouse I thought..."
2. Finally someone who gives deterministic feedback that you actually can understand and work with.
3. Finally someone who dosent have different mood every half an hour
His name is compiler or interpreter... wait... his... Im male... shieeeet...3
The ability to ssh to an Earth terminal.
chown -R sionc /socialmedia/facebook
chown -R sionc /alphabet
I would then have the resources to do way bigger projects. Elon Musk can keep his businesses though. I like Elon Musk.
I'd maybe chown my company too, just for fun.
I'd ping my fiancé everytime she goes in a mood and ignores me for half an hour. She'd have to respond and it would annoy her. :3
userdel could be used on the bad people. >:)
There's probably a whole list of these that I've not even thought of that I'll see people write in the comments. I'm pretty sure this could get dangerous.6
I told my client i cannot do every shitty thing you say and change it again and again whenever your mood swings and it wastes lot of time doing unwanted things even if you pay me.
I m not guilty.2
So I developed this proxy server that will throttle down API calls to one of our providers so we don't get blocked for TOS violation...
Some dude had a tool running all day long which crashed 2 minutes before I left work.
This literally ruined my day until I recalled it's all cached!!!!
Mood is back again and I deserve my beer!
I really want to develop a mobile app that chooses a random combination of clothing and keeps track of the times I've used it, warning me when It's time wash them. Already decided that I want to try weex+vuejs, just need to be in the mood to start.
I am a discrete function. My mood is either a 100 or 0. Nothing in between— especially when I am programming.1
Oh, I've pulled a lot of all-nighters. I love doing hackathons. I find myself most productive when I work on something in a single stretch. I have ADD that way. If I leave a project mid-way, that's probably the last time I'll be working on it; unless someone comes to me and reminds me about it.
Other than attending organized hackathons, I go on personal hackathons. When I'm in the mood to code something up in my free time, I just find some stupid, random idea to code and code it up overnight. (Oh, I have a very long list of projects that I can complete over the weekend)
Other times, I'll just be in the mood as I'm working on something and then lose track of time (and other bodily calls like hunger) as I finish it.
If my weekend looks very peaceful without any distractions, I put my hand in my project bowl and pull something up to finish it off over the weekend.1
My phone broke down yesterday
And... I'm not even mad. I think I have now started to inculcate that these physical things are not that necessary to be there to be happy enough
BTW I did get a spare smartphone from my friend so that I'll be in touch with others via whatsapp.
Also, what phones do you suggest for under ₹20k given the fact that as of now I'm not in mood to buy a Chinese phone
I'm currently thinking about Samsung A50 4GB variant5
In the world where majority of coders are either coffee addicts or cat lovers, I feel a bit lonely.
Devrant has already do a good job by let us has pets in our avatar.
However, I don't see any rabbit, guinea pig, iguana, ball python, gerbyl, hedgehog and other exotic pet around.
Some dragons, dire-wolves, or unicorns might also help to boost up the mood :)
Google drive won't load on my pc, google docs fucks up the formating. I know i can stil download the document from the web io but i have to upload it every once and then to have it synchronized manually and that runins my mood rn.1
I feel the need for a personal AI is real. I mean at this stage of my life I feel replacing humans around/close to me with a strong AI.
The idea is kinda creation of a strong AI but control its learning ability limited to one user.
You have someone who understands you completely.
Knows what/how to talk no matter How's your mood.
Could be used to calm down the user even in critical situations.
Besides, if something doesn't workout just fucking tweak the code its yours no matter what the fuck you do with it.
Do I make sense??3
Time for a new laptop, bored with current. Taking community suggestions. May donate current laptop to some poor dev soul in need; has been a trustworthy machine.
I do some of a lot on any given day: c#, PHP, node and typically run vs 2017, phpstorm, datagrip, sql management, webstorm, plus slack, office, etc.
I have terrible browser tab management skills and prefer electron apps over web apps. Am a vm junkie, constantly spinning up linux distros to see something.
Do light gaming when the mood strikes, Spotify or Netflix always on.
Friday releases are always a bad idea. The feeling of dread over the weekend seeing all the "bugs" and changes come in put a huge dampener on the weekend mood.
I haven't written serious code in 3 months. By serious I mean I haven't thought a lot about a problem or developed something difficult to develop.
Also I have avoided coding whenever I could.
I did that after a friends' advice as they saw me burned out for real and quite sad at the time.
Honestly, I feel much better emotionally and my overall mood has much less tension. Gonna start coding for real soon after getting that out of my system.
I think it would be nice to see less contracts with those companies which only have in mind barebones training and profit. That kind of relationship between institutions drops the standards and it's expensive af. Those who sells cheap computers and bad software and charges more than ten time their value, those with enough power and influence to bend every single rule...
That kind of companies shapes the industry according to their needs, and will never give a shit about anything but the next semester. They teach you to be just a bit more than a user, they charge you like if they were really teaching science.
You end up full of debt, self taught on the technologies that matters, and accepting jobs on projects as outdated and mediocre as the "educational plans" you paid thousands for. And all that just to get a piece of paper signed by a stranger who doesn't care about you, and enjoyed by a corporation which wouldn't even consider to hire you because they know what they sold to the education department.
Fuck this, today I hate it all.
Maintaining a good mood, listening to Avicii and electro house music the whole time at work.
It works so far, no more Kendrick Lamar or NF.
oh man 2 1/2 weeks completely away from programming, IT things and so on.. was in trouble and in a shitty mood, but finally im back. hell yeah feels good.
Fucking Docker, for no fucking reason (no updates, no changes, etc), I tried booting it up following the morning ritual, and nope, ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE when connecting to my current project (means I managed to connect but for some reason no data is sent). Nginx container doesn't yell about anything.
Everything around works. Accessing the container works. Even pinging my dev domain works. Why the fuck suddenly fucking Docker just **stops**?!
Restarted Hyper-V, updated laradock, recreated containers, disabled AcrylicDNS. NOPE.
"Fuck you Phlisg, I'm not in the mood today" <lunatic Docker is lunatic>
Manager has asked for feedback thru some performance review system.... but this is so reassuring....
Guess I need to be in a super good mood to provide only the positives...
When I wake up from a full 7 hours of sleep, have Yerba mate ready to go, and have something mildly interesting to work on. Also bonus good mood if my wife and kid aren’t going to be home for the morning. Love seeing them, but hate hearing them while I try to work from home.2
Spent the last few days trying to solve a weird issue with our CI/CD pipeline for a project. Yesterday i finally gave up and told my coworker that i need a fresh set of eyes to look at this.
I leave for lunch, an hour later I'm back and brought fire and fury to the mix.. Then, 2 hours later i raised my hands and my mouth uttered the glorious words of victory: Fuck yeah, it works.
Mood was still shit though... 1 bug down, 99 life problems remain 😢
Anyone knows of any worthwhile android mobile games to kill the time going to and fro work, when not in the mood to read?
I'm tired of all the "Causal Clicker" or "Freemium" crap that is on the playstore these days...
Some of the best titles that I ever played were:
* Plague.inc - Strategy, infect and wipe out all of humanity kind of game
* Battle of Polytopia - Strategy, 4X game with very well done controls and cute graphics
* Pocket City - Cities: Skylines-esque city builder
* Stardew Valley - Farming-centered RPG13
So... In the mood for a new lang...
Mainly Java developer but have done Scala, Python lately and a bunch in the past (C, PHP, little js, HTML5).
Thinking of .Net or node js ATM...
I'd welcome any ideas :)3
I've talked to people, psychiatrists and tried religion just so I can stop watching porn.
I have a beautiful wife, MSc degree in engineering and well-payed job.
But for some reason, whenever I'm alone my mind bursts images of porn, and before I know it, I'm watching porn.
Despite the things I've achieved, it feels like my true potential is hold back.
This influences my mood, development work and so on.
Mindfulness doesn't work, plugins to block it doesn't work and talking to someone doesn't work. Everything is tried.15
Today our king passed away.
I had to finish my big project before the 20th, but there was no mood for doing it at all; everything feels lifeless and dark. All Thai sites were applied a css grayscale filter to show respect for his loss.
I'm not a royalist, but it feels depressing when you thought about how you would wake up the next morning, knowing he isn't there anymore. It simply was the darkest times in my life.
I spent 2 days finding the truth while Thai officials were trying to hide, and now my worst fear came true.
He was the best king I've ever had. May him finally rest in peace, back to where he belongs to.
I have a hdd left, in the mood of trying out a new os. Any new/hot os's to try?
Btw: my main os is xubuntu.8
Guys, I need a mood bump :/ Christmas is almost here and it's raining as hell outside..
Does anyone have a snowy view whereever you are? Could you share those views? Thank you!7
am I the only one switching between dark and light theme in my IDEs depending on my mood and the outside temperature?
today definitely light!4
I saw an interesting course event in my city, the post was on LinkedIn. I contacted the poster about tye price and more details.
And today it's the third day he messaging me and call me about enrolling and how can I attend the shit course. I already told him I'm not interested for now.
What can I do? I am mot in the mood to be harsh and tell him fuck off4
currently in the mood for rooting my phone again (samsung galxaxy s6 edge).
any good ROM recommendations?6
Walked in to work with an email subject "timesheets" and a calendar appointment to "explain".
Well. That's me in a pissy mood all day. Guess what's coming ...
Arse. Arse. Arse.
I was so excited to learn React Native and I know basics of React too, so I thought it will be fine.
Spent one and half hour watching video and I was happy that I'm almost gonna finish this and last point was Navigator......
Got error its deprecated and have to take another way. I'm still searching how to do it and eventually now I'm not in mood of learning that.... Fml1
Which way you prefer to write code?
3. Both. (as per mood) :p18
*me trying to fix the preview issue by editing layout file*
*issue gets fixed by clean build*
*me implementing a new feature as per plan*
*suddenly another issue occurs with the items in recycler view*
*tries SO, no related question and me too scared to ask one*
*trying different names, keywords, ids and methods to get atleast some output*
*checks json and recycler adapter, all fine but still the error*
*hello darkness my old friend*
*checks the item layout again with a microscopic look and encounters a 0 added to layout width which makes 95dp to 950dp and hence no output somehow*
*2 hours and sunday mood wasted*
Back in 2014, I was developing a personal web page and I decided to add something called flip card on the page (it flips horizontally when hovered)
It worked but was not feeling very "natural". I mean the flip thing was not giving "that" feeling. So I ended up a fine summer evening tweaking shadow, speed, z-axis, etc. And then the next day I deleted the whole project because it was taking a lot of my time. Mood swings. Moved on to Machine Learning and never touched CSS stuff again. Was a lot of fun though.1
What's the one movie/TV show that always gets you in a geeky project mood.
Like, makes you want to build, code or at least desire to create something?5
So, the PowerQuery type system appears to be a Joke.
For those you that aren't familiar with PowerQuery, it's the ETL language that is used in PowerBI, and some other parts of the MS PowerPlatform. It was formerly known as the M Language.
The language has a type system, that includes records (think hashes) and tables, which are, for practical purposes, a list of records.
The wonderful M language specification document states that:
"Any value that is a record conforms to the intrinsic type record, which does not place any restrictions on the field names or values within a record value. A record-type value is used to restrict the set of valid names as well as the types of values that are permitted to be associated with those names."
Except that the restriction is only to the set of valid names, and the language interpreter doesn't throw an error when I place a number into a text field, but also doesn't do any sort of implicit conversion. This is all hunky-dory, until you then try to load the data into the Tabular Model that underlies the query engine, which does expect the values to be of the type that is specified, and it throws an error.
But PowerBI, in its infinite wisdom, doesn't actually *record* the error, it merely tells you the error exists, and tells you to go back to the query editor to list the errors thrown up by the powerquery engine. Which, as previously stated, doesn't throw up an error for this instance.
So I've spent all afternoon trying to work out why my queries aren't loading, because I have an error that doesn't exist. fml.
[You can follow this issue on the communtiy feedback site here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/... ]
demotivated, opened some hacking/programming music on youtube to get me in the mood.
why hacking music? well whatever file you open you have tons of "smart hacks" to fix, as all bugs up to date since I'm here were just fixing brilliant h4xx0r ideas from developers that worked here before.
Maybe I should try to search for unhacking music instead!2
Windows apparently does reboots for updates n stuff outside your normal time of usage nowadays.
Windows apparently also thinks that your normal usage shouldn't be over 12 hours.
So now i have to decide if I'm more in the mood for random updates in the morning when i need to get shit done (ugh) or at night when i have finally time to relax.
I hate scheduled meetings then it gets cancelled. It destroys my development mood. Also meetings that go overtime.1
I noted music is disaster for my work. It distracts I loose my focus and efficiency decrease also.
mood swingings when I listen too much music I have a hated feeling l. So I decided to quite listening music during work.
It may help me in the rest of thr time when I am alone and need to really distress myself3
My music (often MrSuicideSheep long mixes) + good mood + my computer + knowledge of IDE or vim keybindings = maximum productivity
Really bring down mood to hell, when discussing things with designer that does not fully aware of application's mechanicsm
I seldom code without the music complimenting my mood lol. What artists do you guys listen to while working?8
How can you know my mood? Check my git commands. Am I using `git push -u origin SQUAD-feature-branch --force-with-lease` or `git push -f`?4
This is sucking major rooster right now. I can’t post a freaking mean to this site.
I was in such a good mood until I faced buggy fudging code. Ive worked way too hard today to have to deal with other ppl problems2

Them : "Well, I just tried what you told me on the deployed version and it works pretty well"
Me : "I actually just tried and it doesn't work"
That's some conversation to make my mood on a Monday
Power BI: wonderful tool, pretty graphics, and can do a lot of powerful stuff.
But it’s also quite frustrating when you want to do advanced things, as it’s such a closed platform.
* No way to run powerquery scripts in a command line
* Unit testing is a major pain, and doesn’t really test all the data munging capabilities
* The various layers (offline/online, visualisation, DAX, Powerquery, Dataset, Dataflow) are a bit too seamless: locating where an issue is happening when debugging can be pain, especially as filtering works differently in Query Editing mode than Query Visualisation mode.
And my number 1 pet peeve:
* No version control
It’s seriously disconcerting to go back to a no version control system, especially as you need to modify “live code” sometimes in order to debug a visual.
At best, I’ve been looking into extracting the code from the file, and then checking that into git, but it’s still a one-way street that means a lot of copying and pasting back into the program in order to roll back, and makes forking quite difficult.
It’s rewarding to work with the system, but these frustrations can really get to me sometimes2
It's a beautiful day today ! :) For this reason, I feel in the mood to make a playlist called D E A D L I N E ! :) (hue hue hue)
When you commit 4 hours to outsource & then they demand more time in the same amount then fuck them & their tasks...
Freelancing is by mood !!1
I drink enough water to be hydrated, throw on some random rock playlist or System of A Down album & I'm in the mood.
Christmas greetings from ol' Athlon
Fa-la-la-la-laa, la-laa, laa, laa
With a source code of many "if's" on
Fa-la-la-la-laa, la-laa, laa, laa
When the runtime errors are ringing
Fa-la-laa, la-la-laa, laa, laa, laa
I cheer up my mood with singing
Fa-la-la-la-laa, la-laa, laa, laa1
Hey guys it might seem like i'm ranting a lot about this but, I just can't help it. Apologies for that.
So i suffer from migraine, almost everyday. And the pain, mood swings just kill me. I can't remember a thing, I'm not able to focus on simple tasks. And on top of that no one understands what I go through. I feel like this freaking disease is getting the best of me.
I'm just losing confidence everyday bit by bit. I'm thinking of quitting my job, and taking a career break for sometime, in hopes that it would help.
Feel like i'm totally screwed. Does anyone else feel like this?2
What do you do when you don't feel like / can't get anything done? I couldn't focus at all. I feel like my brain is missing.4
Nothing more unproductive than "productivity software". Preparing presentational slides endangers my good mood. Probably just do a website instead next time!1
FUCK BT and GOOGLE MINI together, a good song comes to mind that might put you in a good mood , BT CONNECTS WHEN HE WANTS like a fucking child, BY THE TIME IT CONNECTS, IF! IT CONNECTS.. YOU ARE A PACKET FULL OF ANGER, the feeling of wanting to listen to that song fled and you just lost fucking time AND CAN'T ENJOY SHIT ANYMORE, FUCK. YOU. FUCK YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
I usually fucking ignore those shitheads. If I am in the mood, I ask tough questions to expose them.
