Bf: what you doing?
Bf: do you ever stop working?!
Me: I'm not 'working', I'm doing my own project.
Bf: but you do that at work. Why do you want to keep doing it?
Me: it's fun?
--- a few days later ---
Bf: what you doing?
Bf: omg you're not coding! What are you reading?
Me: a book about coding

IF YOU WRITE IN A FORUM ABOUT A PROBLEM AND YOU SOLVED THE PROBLEM, TELL US THE FUCKING SOLUTION YOU MORRON! YOU TOOK THE EFFORT TO JUST WRITE "I SOLVED THE PROBLEM" WITHOUT WRITING A WORD ON HOW THE FUCK YOU DID IT. DO YOU THINK I READ THIS FUCKING TOPIC FOR FUN? I AM ONLY INTERESTED IN THE SOLUTION, I DON'T GIVE A SHIT IF YOU SOLVED IT OR NOT!!!13
Most used lie you tell to client: -
Client: “Could you make the software do XYZ?”
What the programmer really wants to say:
“It’s software. Of course we could do it. But:
it would take a very long time,you can’t afford it,we can’t sell it to anyone else because it’s a terrible idea,by the time we finish it, you won’t want it anymore.”
“No” is just easier to say and is less insulting, especially when the client has a dozen of these great ideas.14
Interviewer: "Show me a cool side-project you have been working on!"
Me: "No! I do not have a cool side-project to show you! I work to pay the bills, and do other things in my spare time! Like go fishing, or play video games. Why the fuck are you assuming that I spend my weekends coding for fun!? Do you call random people asking them questions every Saturday and Sunday just for the LOLs of it?"38

Now have fun watching your victim struggle.7
The best part of being a dev?
You can be a nerd, you can dress lousy, you got all those fancy tech you can work with, it's diverse, it's fun. And on top of that, it's not even remotely hard to find a job and get payed well.9
I expected Python to be fun, but not THIS fun!
I'm gonna stick around you, buddy. We're going to accomplish great things together.12
Ex-coworker of mine fixed this bug a week after the site was launched and has gathered several thousand users in database.
Yep its exactly what you think it is, each time one user would update its infos, it would update his infos to all the users in the database.
Luckily I was not in charge of the project in that time, so it was really fun to watch how everyone's name was changing every couple of minutes for a whole week :D12
You know your week starts great, when you receive a call, that the whole shop database of a company is not working anymore.
Turns out MS Fucking SQL decided to drop all tables, just because the harddisk was full.
A SERIOUS FUCK YOU TO MICROSCHROTT!
It's not a lot of fun, when 15 people have to wait for you about 1 hour, until it is restored.
Why does this have to happen on a monday?12
You know you're not going to have fun when you get assigned to a project which required to install this software...8
Random: Ey watcha doin?
Me: Programming. What else?
Random: Oh, you're such a nerd...
Me: Programming is fun! I really like it.
Random: Please don't say this is your hobby...
Me: It is.
Random: Bruuh... *goes away*
Why the fuck are you here, if you're not interested in programming???
I don't understand such people.13
Project manager : I want you to do the job by tomorrow.
Me : I can't, there's some problem with MySQL.
PM : Then use somebody else's SQL, but I want the job done by tomorrow!
Me : *weeps in silence*6
Now I am not a web dev but I just stumbled upon Electron and envied all web devs.Seems fun being a web dev23
"++i" can be slightly faster than "i++"
Because "i++" can require a local copy of the value of "i" before it gets incremented, while "++i" never does. In some cases, some compilers will optimize it away if possible... but it's not always possible, and not all compilers do this.17
I have just modded my router and added working USB2.0 to it.
I told about it to my classmates and they told me "You dont have a life"
My response "Maybe not but i have router with USB2.0 soldered to CPU"
And then told them that its maybe not life for them since im not drinking alcohol every friday but that this is just pure fun for me to do this with Tech.13
A fun experience with a client:
Client: We want to use a database in the cloud without internet.
Us: Uhm that's not possible.
Client: Why not? You don't need internet to use a cloud database, because it's in the sky right?
We will never forget our first client.
p.s. he also wanted to use his wifi printer without internet and cable
I pray for a future where clients have a better understanding of IT related concepts🙏2
Had a fun little conversation with a potential employer...
Him: We use git for version control. To work with our team you'll be expected to do the same and be proficient at it.
Me: Not a problem. I am well versed with all things git! May I ask, what does your work flow look like?
Him: All of our source lives in a single repo and everyone commits straight to master.
Him: Conflicts will not be tolerated.6
I hate it when people from other "cool" departments come in to our office and call us "too quiet", "unsociable" ,"not fun"..
They need to stop for a second and realize how we got to being programmers...
Personally, I went through all the possible professions and asked myself.." which job requires the least amount of human interaction?"
SO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GET YOUR HIPSTER FACE THE FUCK OUT OF HERE!8
Just like basketball player need good shoes, programmer deserve a better keyboard.
Definitely not show off. Just wanna say I'm a big fun of Cherry MX mechanical keyboard.17
Will do a much-security.nl post with answering sent-in questions this weekend.
Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org 😊
Public GPG key can be found at either:
https://much-security.nl/concerns.a... or https://much-security.nl/concerns.h...
Oh and threats (including death threats) aren't much appreciated. They don't really keep me awake at night but if you're one of the people sending them, it's not much fun 😬)17
Brought two laptops: Linux and windows
Forgot charger for windows.
Graphics not working properly in linux
Three hours of package installation, documentation diving, package removal, driver fuckery and other assorted fun
I can now play Minecraft.6
Fun fact: "wix" of wix.com in German language phonetically translates to a vulgar word for masturbation. Not only describes my feeling towards services like these but also gives new meaning to the "do it yourself" mentality.8
So I had another seizure last night... (yea not fun), it's been awhile and yesterday's, I have no recollection of what happened.
But today, what do I do? Make sure I can still read and code :)
Honestly, if I forget how to code, not sure what I would do.....
Oh and I just wrote this and somewhat related:
Doing Linux server management stuff via ssh with a FUCK 500ms PING IS NOT FUN AT ALL
GET OFF THE FUCKING NETWORK EVERYONE 😤😤😤😤😤6
(I know Linux is not included)
Which one do you like most?
(and yes, it's far from perfect, just a little CSS sketch for the fun)27
I do not like it when a client can't come up with content for the design they approved... however , I do have a great deal of fun writing temporary content...7
I learned some fun things today!
Fun fact! A lot of things rely on python!
Fun fact! Python relys on a lot of things!
Fun fact! Updating just python and nothing else causes your entire fucking arch to break! ... Wait that's not fun. Shit!
Drivers across Operating Systems.
Windows: What the fuck is any of this? Here's something minimally functional.
Mac: That's not made by Apple, fuck off.
Linux: Here you go, have fun if you're missing functionality!5
People say programmers are no fun!! But they don't know the truth.
We have big Ass container of emotions almost ready to explode anytime. We are spending too much time in debugging stuff one after another that having a free time is just a hoax to us, even when we came back home for sleep, it's only to dream about solution. We would be happy with debugging the error that is not letting us sleep for weeks.6
I've recently made a devrant API for python!
It is available for use in your very own projects!
Here is the link: https://github.com/coolq1000/...
It is very basic with functionality, not much beyond getting rants by index starting at zero, or getting all rants available by skip, limit.
Has some documentation in the readme.
Mom: Oh cool! So you can hack sites and accounts now?
Me: No mom.. I'll be making stuff, not breaking it.
Mom: Well what's the fun in that 😐
I need a break.
A break from stress of endless expectations
From being made fun of
From criticizing myself
From not being able to do fun things
From vague instructions
From a lack of sleep
From unclear objectives
From financial/medical/emotional stress
From destruction of my emotional stability
From a lack of confidence
From unfulfilled decisions
From trying to hide under a mask
From repetitive obliteration of any hope I have
From me crap talking myself
From pleasing people
Oh well, at least after tomorrow, I’m on full-time break...12
Use Linux desktop they said.
It'll be fun they said.
So much to configure.
18 hours later and hibernation, Bluetooth, Sound and Nvidia Optimus still not working after countless modprobes and config changes.
Hello again, Windows. You make me feel safe.
I'll just stick to Linux on servers and nothing more.47
Can we, please, put some substance into our rants? Over the course of the last weeks the amount of rants of the type "%NAME% %SWEARWORDS%" has increased tremendously. You want tell everyone that (for example) Windows can go fuck itself? Great. But why? What is the story behind you're enragement?
Please make this place more fun to browse by sharing stories. Not just a random amount of names and swearwords.4
What I hoped to do today: program
What my parents hoped to do today: go to the pool
What we are actually going to do today: go to the pool
it is fun when ppl younger more than 10 years just entered into coding and tech scene offers solutions to solve my problems
which is nothing wrong and i encourage that
but then they miss core concept of how stuff should work and are not able to see real fundamentally broken problems
and then assumes im stupid
and then i want to burn them to ashes2
When a mobile dev says he knows phones inside out:
"Most phones come with a built-in, disabled FM radio chip, if I needed you to build an app that enables the chip and uses it, how would you do that?"
Not relevant really, but it's always fun to stump people who act stuck-up and smart. I'd never ask this question to someone who was nervous and/or humble.10
Don't get me wrong, I hate using Java for real life projects. But there is a reason why almost every university use it as introduciton language. It's great start to learn programming. Saying that the 'Hello World' in Java is complex and can scare people away, it's complete nonsens. For fuck sake, yes programming should be fun, but it is also hard. People can understand that they are going to learn what 'public static voiď means later. It's the structure of many Computer Science classes. It's the assigments that are not designed in engaging and fun way for newcomers. That's the problem, not the language.21
The combination of fun colleagues and trying to learn things (more and more CLI stuff in my case) make my days awesome, also some customer interactions are hilarious, that altogether makes it very much worthwhile!
(although: I'm a Linux engineer, NOT a dev professionally)3
I miss the days I actually enjoyed playing games.
6 years of programming later...
I'm always wondering how did they make the game? Once I find out how, I lose interest in the game.
I spend more time reverse engineering/exploiting/modifying the Client of games than actually playing them, more out of curiosity than causing harm.
Am I evil? 😫5
It is time for me to run an experiment with the people of devRant. There are just a few simple rules for this experiment.
1. Do not change the username
2. Do not change the password
2.5. Do not delete the account
3. Respect others
4. Don't get banned
5. I am watching
So.. Time for the experiment.
Learning CSS .
Understand CSS shadow today.
Did a little practice..
And come up with this. It's too easy..
Doing more practice just because it's fun 😄 I think that's why most coders code ! Because it's fun 😊 though I know it's not even "programming language" 😂9
Taking a class on Android Development. I'm mostly teaching myself here. But it's fun to start diving into the world of designing apps. Here's a picture of my current app. It's not much but it's a good start I think13
While I was working with my Android project that is written on Kotlin. One of my on non-tech colleague came and saw my screen and
said "Why are you overriding fun"
I replied him that we just not override fun we also have private fun and public fun.
Is it not funny translating code to real English 😂😂😂2
"Eww that is not Dev-related!"
Shut the fuck up. For me, devRant is a social media for developers and not a social media about only dev-related shit.
"devRant is a fun community for developers to share and bond over their successes and frustrations with code, tech, and life as a programmer!"
"about code, tech and *life*"
For fucks sake... Stop crying around and just dislike it if you don't want it.7
Be me, making a self hosted website-blog thing because why not
making the backend: yeah cool, easy, ive been doing this stuff for a while
making a frontend: ehh, some template will do fine, im not that great at js
making an admin page: yay this is actually fun
setting up portforwarding on my router to my pi: fucking piece of shit work already dammit8
Working at SQUARE ENIX is a love/hate thing tbh. It's fun and stressing at the same time. Pay's not very good , office's fine, but the management is...there's a massive room for improvement, at the very least.
Sucks that the company is doing worse and worse decisions.5
As a few of you possibly read in my last rant, I had to refactor a lot of my current story's code right before the deadline because senior colleague A "requested" it. Now my teamlead, who wasn't present yesterday, isn't happy with A wanting those changes. The discussion tomorrow will not be fun. Ffs people, the end of a sprint is NOT the right moment for that kind of shit. I'm not sure whether to bring popcorn or booze, so I can make my coffee Irish.2
Here's a fun game:
Describe an OS in four words!
Here, I'll start:
Linux Mint- Not Windows, at least.33
What a fu*#king stupid landlord. They got my devrant poster by mail and opened it. Not only that, they posted it on their wall for fun. YOU FU*#KING C*NTS24
Still fail to see why people give a fuck if you're self taught or have a degree. (By people I mean other developers, not employers.)
Why does it matter? Trick question: it doesn't matter. All that matters is their code.
And fun fact: both educated and self taught people can write shitty code.
Idk it just seems like unnecessary division in a group of people that all do the same fucking thing: program.30
Talk with a co-worker who has a bit of a motivational problem.
Him: if I had more fun, I would be more productive.
Me: you're not here for fun, that's why they pay us.
Him: how are you motivated?
Me: by money.
A bit later.
Him: do you plan for retirement some day?
Me: no. By then, there won't be retirement anymore. We will eat fried rats in the street.
He starts understanding why I'm wearing black metal shirts.10
Best part of beginning a dev ? devRant and rubber ducks and of course the fun of programming stuff and changing world and saying "fuck why its not working" and "fuck why its working"
Building an amazing RESTful web service from scratch in 24h.
Winners 'created an Android application' by wrapping an existing Webapp.
Fun fact: the Webapp was not even theirs.
They:Why didn't you come up with this solution 2 years ago?
Me: The framework on which the new solution is proposed DID NOT exist 2 years ago.
This industry is fun!2
Today I played hide and seek at work, this time it was not find the missing semicolon but instead find the unknown. After 30 minutes it turned out the request URL had a capital 'i' instead of a small 'L'
==> l = I almost the same but guess my eyes are not functioning as they should
It was a fun game11
Time to go to bed.
Why not trying this lib ? it's not that late, let's give it a try for an hour and then --> sleep.
Woaw what, two hours passed already ? I was just still beginning to have fun ! so frustrating. Na, I could not sleep if I'm frustrated, let's dig deeper for 30min and then, go !
shit it's been an hour already, man, go to sleep now ! ...Actually it's too late already, better not sleeping and keep digging !
In the morning : can't wake up, tonight I promise, I go sleep at nine.
In the evening : oh new angular ! could worth a quick try before sleep !1
What am I doing right now? Scamming scammers.
I'm attempting to build a delicious Windows honey pot for scammers to play in only to be terribly disappointed by how buggy it is.
That's right mother fucker I've rigged this computer to not work on purpose!
Have fun trying to run your shitty programs and steal data that isn't there.
Oh by the way if you want to play in this playground it's www.scammer.info3
A support request came in at 4:30 this afternoon, I logged onto the server somewhat pissed off that there was a support request at this time on a Friday.
I checked the logs and noticed 500 errors coming from our integration parter after a little log checking and with glee I declared "not my fucking problem!" I replied to the customer and ccd our partner. Have fun bitches, next time deploy your new version when we fucking agreed!
*looks for some reviews of a dentist*
Yelp: ah yes we have that.
*Enters Yelp site*
The Mail System of my university supports "identities", so basically I can choose another name and adress. But they do not check, if they are already exist, so I can write e.g. in Name of and with The adress of my prof. Its going to be fun 😈2
Not usually a person to rant about spacing and conventions but this is great.
4 devs, all using IntelliJ. Now IntelliJ auto-changes tabs to spaces which is nice, and GitHub doesn’t really care as long as the spacing is consistent. Now here is the fun part: 2 devs have 4 spaces per tab, 1 has 3 spaces, 1 has 5 spaces.
GitHub merge conflicts everyWHERE.
And yes it isn’t the old 2 vs 4 spaces. It’s 3 vs 4 vs 5 somehow6
Turns out Google round off the answer automatically, just like that, no side note, nothing, just round off.7
An intern who tries not to show that he doesn't know shit has been asked for fun:
"What's the difference between a pointer and a thread?"
He answered: "I don't know, I am not experienced enough in oriented object programming".
Seriously. Bullshiting has gone too far.3
Why is GOTO deprecated and not recommend!?
It was fun in school days programming, I used to write code randomly then use GOTO to sequence it.
Did anyone had fun with GOTO!?15
So I just completed reading this book and it was pretty awesome. Can anyone recommend me similar books? Which are not language specific but cover computer science concepts & is fun to read.10
Tried the CTF from MR.robot and holy crap that was fucking fun !!!
Spoiler: If you want to try it don't look down !!
//WTF hell is that I want to make it not show the down part with fucking dots and its not working have to type some stuff ahhhh.
Funny part was the bad configured nmap haha.
I can say that I recommend it to anybody who wanna to try it out.6
Just saw a thread about Global Reddit Meetup Day. Do we have one in devrant? If not, is it possible to have one? I know the user base is not comparable with reddit, but it would be fun meeting other local developers who rant too 😛8
Wohoo builded another quad yayyy it looks damn good and its not loud (weird) waiting for new 130 mm frame then i t will be fun
i've made a lmgtfy remake for fun over the weekend!
it's still not finished but i'd like some feedback
here is a demo: http://ntyhaq.dah.wtf/g/...!!!
(on mobile you have to tap)14
On Monday i have a Skype Interview.
Now i've bought a green screen because i thought that would be fun for showing my design stuff live as a virtual webcam. But this stupid Java 6 SE "Chroma Key Live" programm does not recognise any camera... and it's so ugIy... I hate java gui's.... :-/5
Hey guys, I have done a face reveal, but how about a .bash_profile reveal? I think this should be fun, am I right? I shall also include my desktop reveal in this, because why not?9
I thought I would quickly restyle the web version of devRant to make it a bit easier to read on big screens.
You can get it here https://userstyles.org/styles/...
and apply it using stylish or copy the CSS and apply it via the method of your choice.
There is another userstyle for devRant out there, but it's not complete and doesn't seem to be updated.
The lesson here is not to make fun of something if there’s a chance you could be in the same boat in literally two years5
Making a small update to an ionic app then spending a whole day trying to figure out why a button doesn't work. Tried everything to fix it and got no error messages.
Finally discovered it was because the button was inside a label and not a div.
Yeah, fun times.
A Gentoo installation might be fun, but it sure as hell isn't worth it, both in time and effort. Broken audio, broken video, broken stability. A broken kernel that doesn't recognize the hard drive or the network interface. And half a week to compile the fucking thing and it's still not done. This is not the right distribution for me.3
Time management tips one must follow to be successful:-
1. Remove distractions:- Phone, Whatsapp, Instagram, FB, etc. All away from you during work.
2. Remove clutters: Get rid of not required things.
3. Eliminate redundancy
4. Emulate others: (My favourite) If someone has spend time and done some work. Do not reinvent the same work done just replicate that work and continue from that point.
5. Share burden: Team work and depending on others is not bad.
6. Make work fun: Most important if you enjoy your work you will give your best.8
So we have a so called 'CoderDojo' this weekend, introducing kids from 9 to 17 into the world of IT.
40 Kids, 20 Parents (that have to watch their kids), plus 18 Mentors, 6 Supporter and the three organisers.
This is going to be fun and very, veeery exhausting.
(Info about CoderDojo: https://coderdojo.com, this is NOT meant as advertising)4
Discord's bot API is super fun to use, it's definitely my most used if not favourite, it's super easy to make chat bots for basically anything. I'm aware chat bots aren't too special but the API is pretty insane and some people have made entire games in Discord alone. Cool stuff.8
Finish all my on-going side projects that have been left to gather dust due to lack of time and resources...
They may not be any good however they are fun to work on when I can.
So I promised myself some down time this weekend since I usually end up working all night and in a blink my weekend is over. I also declined going out for better 'relaxation'. Here's how it's going so far...
>Gets home. Hmmm what should I do I can do anything! *thinking*
>Pours a stiff whiskey
>Trys watching something as well as playing a game, gets bored of each and abandons them.
>Opens a dev newsletter
>Realizes I'm elbow deep in some repo... starting to feel inspired.
>Decides to code something "fun"
>Uses "Well as long as I'm not *working*" to justify his addiction.
I'm really not sure what I did for fun before I started coding. It ruined things by being so damn enjoyable and ultimatley many other things became well... less fun.
This is what addiction looks like.2
Now I feel bad for calling myself a programmer as a highschooler after seeing so many people shitting on the younger people. Goddammit I picked up programming because I thought it was cool and fun not because I want money or shit. I'm not the retard kiddies that overstate my ability. I like coding, I just like coding.
Now I wanna quit.7
Fun fact: I got my first job on starting of week 77 as a developer. Coincidence! I hope not.
Even devrant syncs with my life now.2
Can’t even remember the last time. Last three years have NOT been fun and games. Hoping 2018 will be the turnaround!7
People have been making fun of me for not having WhatsApp. They say that I am 'behind in technology', 'old fashioned' and that I don't know anything about computers and modern technology because I don't use WhatsApp.
They even kinda make fun of my family. One other family who made fun of us owns both Google Home and Amazon Echo.
What the heck is even going on anymore?
Anyway I am gonna put lights on a fez and wear it to school on monday.
Simple sidescroller made in Unity featuring a little green pixel dragon.
And the fun thing is that the dragon is awfully similar to the Docusaurus logo. (see below image)
FB stole my idea. (lol)
And I am not releasing my dragon cuz people will shout at ME who seems to plagiarised FB.3
Google: The all mighty bug fixes for Android Studio are now live, see version 3.4
Android Studio: But I still freeze when I need to format xml files tho, but who cares...
** Days later
Google: Android Studio 3.4.1 is now live! Smash those bugs!
Android Studio: lool I still freeze when formatting an xml file ¯\_(ツ)_/¯1
1) Helping my girlfriend getting her graduation.
2) Maxing out my Cassette collection
3) Repairing my Gameboy
4) Growing my plants, especially my Carolina Reaper chili
5) Visiting my friends across the country
6) Lots of things that might or might not be illegal but fun5
I spend the whole day decoding Assembly code for special formulas that we require for a current project.
And the client doesn't have them anywhere else.
There's only that old desktop application - written in assembly.
My Pc and I never felt so close before...
If it sounds like it was fun, it wasn't.
NOT. AT. ALL.2
I'm working on this super fun project in which we can combine the newest technologies, and some not so new but fun to use, we are doing it with docker, ASP.Net core, Angular2, and suddenly the system maintenance guy from the client sends us an email like:
- Just wondering which content management system are you going to use currently we are using WordPress, Orange and Django which ease a lot adding new features and sections
So the PM and me are frustrated and scared that we are going to be forced to use something awful just to please this guy.5
1) I don't have to talk to other people while doing it.
2) The computer does exactly what I want it to do and failure will always be an error made by me, not someone else. That makes it satisfying.
3) I'm pretty good at it. It's just fun helping other people at school and creating small programs to solve problems.
TIL one does not just pacman -Rc openssl.
Most fun way to fuck up arch linux since rm -rf /. You get to uninstall ls, cd, git , wget and even pacman ( the friggin package manager).
I'm not even mad. Amazing3
I've never been hacked - not that I know of :D - and never "hacked" someone else.
(Sure, I did some things in high school to circumvent certain restrictions but nothing worth mentioning whatsoever.)
But all these rants that I read so far have me wondering if I shouldn't simply setup a honeypot sometime when I'm about to be really bored just to have some fun. Then again, I don't have time to be bored. :/1
This week has not been fun. I worked 12-14h everyday, slept 4h, felt like a zombie. It's 3pm and I still have 8 tasks to go.4
Every time I come back to Java:
"Oh man OOP is fun"
A few days later...
"This stupidly verbose, hand-holding garbage."4
I quite like Unity.
It's a good engine, BUT....
I despise doing UI in it, it's just so tedious to make everything work and show up.
In the past I didn't mind but then I learned about XAML in WPF, UWP and Xamarin. XAML works very nice with the MVVM pattern (even if you do that lazily) with the data binding.
So now I'm working on my own data binding, which is both fun and saddening (because it's not in there already)1
Since it's 42 & I am fond of the number..
The 'most fun' I had was making a completely useless feature for our customers that we (our team) knew will be useless (&wrong) once finished and we will have to rewrite it. But we had to do it nevertheless till the end of the week, since the customer is the king. It turned out hilarious and fun because everyone was making jokes on the floor about what idiotic stuff we code and implement. Even the boss was like: yes, yes, I know but please do it, you can rewrite it later to not do anything, just leave the button on gui. It was crazy it was fun, a little bit of mindless coding to lighten up the atmosphere and it (coding & jokes) brought closer the whole colective reaponsible for that particular customer.
Just bought a cheap wifi USB adapter with antenna and damn its perfect just little hot glue to make it not falling a part every so often.
Tried wifi hacking (My own wifi) works.
Packet injection Works.
Tried all the tests that airmon-ng offers and all passed.
Damn for 2 $ you can get really good wifi adapter for lot of things.
Ohhhhhhh it will be fun at school.1
I aliased the go package manager dep to derp
I do this because I consider myself a grade A derper.
I derp hard when I write in go, not because of not getting the language,on the contrary....I feel quite profficient in it which gives me the ability to derp whilst cosing.
Go is amazing. Such a boring language in the best way possible in terms of syntax but so fun in productivity.
Microservices galore l.4
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
My next stack overflow post on a fake account.
NOTHING WORKS IN WINUX!!!?
WEN I TRY 2 INSTAL WINUX, IT GIVE MEH ERRWOR. HALP!
I wonder how many downvotes I will get?
I'm not normally a troll, but today has been "fun"2
I remember the days when I coded just for the fun in it and not for some client I don't give a shit about2
I started my part time job as a tutor today. Yesterday (while preparing) I learned how a browser actually renders a page and bunch of other stuff. Don't get me wrong, I kind of knew it. But not in such detail that I could ever explain it... even though I work in web development since 2011
This will be fun, I wonder what I will learn next2
You know you're obsessed with your current codebase when you work on it until 8am the previous night, and are then annoyed at the inconvenience of not being able to work on it because you have to attend a party hosted by another dev, which you know will actually be fun2
not really a rant but the more i code, the more fun it gets. i havent really dived this deep into coding and allowing myself to take most of my time doing it has made it more interesting for me. now i want to learn more and start creating personal projects aside from real university projects. people may think its weird that i have been devoting a lot of my time writing code, but i guess they just dont understand the difference of coding for grades and coding for fun.
we are all in it for fun!1
Husband looking into online schools for CS. Anything data science related. He loves math (and is freaking good at it) and teaches himself R for fun.
I put 0 thought into my own schools (terrible, I know, but not likely to change any time soon). Any suggestions for good online data Science programs, with a math minor potentially?
It's for his bachelor's.7
what fun things can you do with a router running linux arm7 with telnet accsess?
apt is not installed, cURL and rpm is.
and sudo doesn't seem to work, but su.8
Fun fact for today
Do you know why we call computer bugs as computer bugs, and not just the formal word for it - "errors and glitches"
Some of you guys might already know this, but still worth sharing:
Just solved this riddle hidden in my friend's agency homepage. www.webfactory.ie. I am not looking for a job myself, but the riddle was fun anyways (despite short).1
No matter how hard I try it will always find its way.
Sometimes it's fun to debug sometimes it's not.
Tighten the belts on your printer they said. It will be fun they said.
It isnt fun at all ffs. Have to recalibrate my entire printer now. And thats not fun. If it doesnt bring some really good resoults then im gonna be mad and sad.2
Wishing to punch someone...
My dick boss pushes his frustrations on me because I don't reply... (was educated better then that)
If he's not yelling he's teasing or making fun..
I'm sick since I've been sleeping 3, 4 hours a day (overwork)
On the limit... Almost exploding...
And I know myself... If I explode I won't stop... Need this job
My JS app can crash IE11. Totally reproducable.
Had a fun debugging session to find out how this is triggered. Happens inside a deeply recursive call in a library I'm using which redraws the DOM.
Found a hacky workaround to avoid that as I see no real solution. It's not like I'm responsible for fixing IE. These are the days where I'm happy I'm mainly a backend dev...4
Just started today with Python 3. I don't know but I really start to like the language. Its not to difficult and it has nice syntax. Currently I'm working on a little financial overview generator. It parses the CSV file from my bank and sorts it into categories. Really fun to make. Do you guys made some nice projects in python?4
The Raspberry Pi is fun. As long as you not try to connect it via bluetooth to something and read/write serial-ish.15
A little and sweet rant about RANTS! What the hell guys, I can finally think about a social network happily, but I have the feeling that I'm not a part of this awesome community :'( I mean, everyone is getting problem with some clients or whatever. But I'm currently unemployed, and never really get through that kind of problems. Ok they lied to me on the job, ok I paid 15000 euros 2 years of school where there were still people who doesn't care about the work, ok I left my girlfriend, ok I have a fucking hard time to go back to work with that... But all of this is not really juicy, my life is simple and mostly happy :'(
Maybe I should hope that my next job will be with stupid people :o
I love you guys <35
I'm not allowed to talk about the coolest things I've done :(
NDAs always ruin the fun!
But I can tell you that they were freakin awesome. I'll come back to this in a bunch of years :)
Just know it was awesome!
I've seen a few posts on here; exclaiming their disdain when it comes to people finding out about how good they are with computers. And while yes Programming has nothing to do with "fixing" computers; I myself don't mind fixing other people's computers. It's fun and it's usually not completely related to programming. So that means I'm not really doing my job outside of the office.5
why is everyone hating on python lately?
I know it's not perfect, and it takes care of a lot of shit for you. and it's slow, and doesn't have a decent compiler, and PEP 8 encroaches on everything good in the world, and mandatory whitespace, etc.
yea. it's got some issues. but it's still a good language imo. and it's easy to write, it's fun to write, it looks nice (not Ruby level nice but ehh). not worthy of all the "fuck python!" talk.22
You know what's fun? When your client insists you use an agile process with a delivery at the end of each sprint, then proceeds to bitch at each release at the features that weren't implemented yet. The thing isn't even slated to be done until 4Q 2018 and is on schedule/early. Glad I am not on that team . . . yet.
@dfox I recently started playing around with Neo4j and find it really fun to work with. Would there be any way to get hold of parts of the devRant graph/graphs? Not private or secret stuff of course - only public parts of rants, tags and users. It would be fun to to play around with and analyze.13
My mother got me a programmagle calculator this year for christmas, a Casio fx9750gII. Needless to say I'm already hooked. Casio BASIC might not be the best language I've ever used, and working with string is pretty much impossible but I'm actually having real fun. Hopefully I'll finish my snake code by this week (will update with pics :P).5
Anyone else ever had to install Jekyll on Windows?
Man, what a displeasure the last four hours were. SSL errors everywhere because Ruby versions have differing SSL certificates for downloading gems or something, having to install the devkit three times, messing with Linux Subsystem and finding out the Ubuntu repos do not have a new enough Ruby version to support what you're doing.
All this to have some fun with GH pages. It's physically exhausting.2
So, I'm heading back down the rabbit hole. I did some web dev (backend) on the side years ago, but I've been out of the game since. I want to change up careers at this late date and I had forgotten how cathartic manipulating raw code could be. So now I'm relearning and learning all kinds of good stuff via the internets and was excited to find this community. Not much of a ranter but this should be fun.3
I think i will launch some app or website that will have how many updates im behind (Haxk20) This will be funny first and seconds it will be fun for users. Then they could yell at me that im not running latest commit of kernel.3
Kubernetes is actually sick. I love learning about it and playing around with localized clusters. The only thing that sucks is I would never use this for anything while I'm still a CS student. And I probably won't ever use this if I'm not in Devops. *sigh*. fun to learn about, regardless.
hey, look in jira on how to implement these features. lets not use any standard on how we format our tasks there.
add random screenshots on how things should or maybe should not look. add random tables in tasks with random fields from random tables in db which should be displayed somewhere?
lets not add docs to any of our code. name every method differently in every service although they do the same thing only for different types of data.
have someone come 3x a day to u asking: "is there something new to see in the ui? :D"
LIFE IS FUN HAHA :))
So the gf just came home, threw this in my face (literally, but not intentionally) and said "they were giving these away, thought you might have fun".
I've only heard of raspberry pi, arduino and such, but never actually used one.
Anyone have any experience with this thing in particular? Can I actually do anything with it or is it mostly for learning?8
*Finished the deploy*
Few hours later
Production inaccessible! Blackbox crawler failed with message 5xx.
And that was the day little Charlie learnt dev-ops is not fun and thrilling.
Release on Monday === almost 10h of code today... Though it's just an internal release, so not that serious really. Though it's be fun to have something we've been working on for half a year working decently the first time people actually get to try it... Well, well...
Dear @devRant, when a rant contains a link and I click it, it doesn't open in a new tab so when that happens, I have to click back on the browser which is not fun.
Can you please open the links in a blank tab.
Thank you :-*11
I recently started using Python 3, was using Python 2 for a while, and I know it's stupid but I kind of feel guilty not using 2 anymore, anyone else feeling that way? I mean Python 2 was my first real coding experience after mandatory C classes from an utterly garbage teacher, it was liberating and fun... Anyways, it can't be just me feeling stuff like this8
@dfox, @trogus, would you consider adding the topic for next week to be "Near miss: how I almost lost all my code/data"?
It sould be fun, and people can also learn something. Like what not to do, how to recover and how to prevent this kind of stuff...2
So I had a manager who just up and quit with barely any warning. We were shocked! Turns out the guy had been shielding us from all kinds of crazy office politics that we were totally unprepared to deal with after he departed... We managed in the end, but it was not fun.1
An incomplete list of 2018 personal dev goals:
* do more web development (It's fun. In a crude way.)
* finish the smart lamp I started building in 2016 ...
* fix up more electronic devices while learning their inner workings
* learn Python and some other language
* get myself a blog again
* get that testautomation thing which is haunting me in my dreams already to production
* be more relaxed
* do some home automation while not cursing all that much
*not a rant*
For the fans: Mr. Robot s02e04 came out today! Have fun watching.
For who doesn't know Mr. Robot; it's an amazing show and you should probably watch it.11
Having other people pitch you to hiring managers, raise the hype, and profess faith in your abilities is kind of nerve-wracking. But I found a tutorial to teach me how to write a compiler and it’s not in a language I know, so that’s fun and distracting. Been up since 4am. Is now 12:30am. Should probably sleep.3
Why use Arch. It sounds like headaches.
What is the benefit. Like, I used to have fun with
tweaking systems and so forth, until it became
not so fun when I had to actually do it to make
money, like server admin on my websites.
From the sounds of it, setting it up takes hours, none of the packages are quite ready, it takes google research and troubleshooting for common tasks, etc.
Why not say, Ubuntu, kde? Or whatever.15
I don't know exactly what year my dad bought the PC with a hard drive of 4GB, but it was not in the year 2000 and following. I'm not sure if it was running win98 or win95. Probably win95. Aaah those were golden times.
I remember having no internet, but still having fun drawing images on ms paint.
Oh and there was a game named sesame street for that os. Sometimes I miss those times.3
Finally got to release v2.1 of MultiCube. Now I finally decoupled input, processing, and output :)
Next version is going to include Gamepad support as well, for better cube control. :) That version is going to come only next year though.
Question here - what do you guys think of Kotlin?
Do you also think it'll be sufficient to learn Kotlin and not java to programm for Android?
I just began the transition, it's fun playing around with it, but a friend of mine wants to learn Kotlin to learn Android programming (and not java, he only has java basics).
What's your opinion on all this?12
What is something I can complete in a week (let's say 30-40 hours) as a newbie (I made an android app, played around with engines like unity and unreal here and there, tried some c#, and I always mess around with the linux command line, my RPi, etc etc)? I'll start working in a dual-studying job ('applied CS') in 2 weeks so I'll have enough learning-without-doing to do. I just want to learn something by doing something useful (e.g. a small android app that I can put ads in or sell, or maybe provide something for free that people like. I don't want to write my own engine( that'd take very long anyways) or make a compiler because I feel that'd be kind of useless and even though it'd probably be fun, I would lack initiative.5
I find it funny that, one of the most expected features on Windows, is not even a Windows feature. The teams at Microsoft must be feeling the same way we feel when, after a huge project, the client gets super excited when we implement or change something really, really small, that we did in a couple hours, just for fun.
HOD keeps coaching me in regards to my new role as a manager for my institution. I really like it, the man has a lot of knowledge and would show me stuff that not only deals with my job, but his as well. Thus far everything has been working rather smoothly, mind you, i have been acting manager for more than 6 months thus far, but they just made it official after our vp conaidered that most of the applicants for the manager role were not as qualified as I was, kinda had the advantage since I wrote the job requirements.
All in all it has been fun, stressing, but fun.
Going from 80% development/20% SEO at an agency to a new inhouse position with 90% SEO and 10% development. But it'll be fun.
If not, I will let you know for sure.1
Hello and welcome come to hell for developers. Take a seat at any open computer.
You may have noticed we did away with the fire and brimstone.
Instead we just have you maintain the legacy code from your first job.
We would say have fun, but that's not really the point.3
Having fun with my nvidia graphic card 😎..........
I am talking about graphic card's packet not graphic card LOL1
Taking a class at my local university for fun where the point of the class is to build some kind of project for local companies. The teacher talks a lot about Wordpress and how great it is... He's not a dev, and has only worked as a business consultant/pm.... It's gonna be a long semester, but at least he's funny and has good choices in tv shows to include in his lectures.1
My next project is a functional fitness/crossfit application and my client requires me to attend and participate sessions with them in order for me to understand and appreciate the sport. I got the point but OMG I only know sports via tv,youtube,etc.. and not really fun of socializing. I might die doing this project. Help me!4
When my boss says, isn't it nice to get to do something else than studying all the time (studying uni full time). My initial reaction, nope uni is a thousand times more fun than this reception job, second of all I get anxiety every time I have to go to this work, sorry not sorry man
I hope I’m not the only person who drafts a plan to build a thing to do a thing, and in the course of research about implementing the thing, winds up mashing together several other unrelated things because they looked like fun and the original thing gets left behind. (Oh, look, squirrel!)1
I see several post about linux, that made me remember the worst day of learning about linux installation many years ago.
I actually just want to know about linux, then suddenly install it without any knowledge about formatting harddisk and something like that.
And the first choice which come up is "install on entire harddisk" i think its like on windows installer and i go through next and next.
Then i got my whole data erased after that. At that time i feel regret.wanna burn my linux cd installer.
But the thirst for trying new is so high.its like wanna pay for the mistake.
After that i like to install many linux distro to choose which one suit my need.
I love linux!!3
So I'm a "Web Application Developer" but I have to go out on site whilst a trained engineer sits in the office doing nothing. Everything I can do on site I can do from my office with teamviewer. Hit the M25 at 09:00 and will hit it again at 17:00 ... not a fun day2
learning a different language can be difficult sometimes. since i already know other languages, i get them mixed up. putting semicolons, putting spaces even though i shouldnt, putting parenthesis or even forgetting some keywords because in another language, its not necessary. makes it difficult to adjust to the new syntax. but the fun part of learning is having more knowledge and experience.4
I signed up for a web developer job... I am now making programs in VB.NET
This was not what I was expecting, however I am completely fine with it.
Crash course learning is fun. Just know that the first hundred programs i write will be really unoptimised.
Hey you were not here yesterday so we assigned you to do this job that requires this training and is really fun and good for your experience
Says the coworker that was supposed to do it but does not want to do it because he thinks the work takes too much time and doesn't think the training is usefull.
I don't if this is common or not but it happens with me every day.
Reading from mobile and pressing down arrow on laptop.😂
But the most common one still is lowering or increasing the music volume on either devices, when the music is being played on exactly other. 😂😂
Multitasking is really fun.2
I'm way past the point of being pissed now....
So there's some software (API's, mobile app + website) that I wrote to manage supplier incentive programs in a big hurry last year - which lead to a bunch of stuff being hard-coded in to launch on time. So after last years promotion was done I took down all the services etc was very fucking clear that in order to finish & deploy it to run again I would need at least around 4 months notice.
On the surface its pretty simple but it has quite a large user base and controls the distribution of enough cash & prizes to buy a small country so the setup of the incentives/access/audit trails is not something to be taken lightly.
Then once I'm done with the setup I have to hand it over to be "independently audited" by 3 of the larger corporate behemoths who's cash it distributes (if I get a reply from one in 3-4 weeks it's pretty fast).
I only happened to find out by chance an hour ago that we are apparently launching an even larger program this year - ON FUCKING MONDAY. I literally happened to over hear this on my way for a smoke - they have been planning it since last year November and not one person thought it might be kinda important to let me know because software is "magic" and appears and works based on the fucking lunar cycle.
To be honest - task distraction
1. Starting a task, you need to do
2. finding old code you want to refactor
2. Doing some improvements
3.Fixing the bugs created by prev actions
Task not finished
But that's kind of fun. Livin' on the edge2
Prettier formatter, AirBnB linter.
Prettier defaults to double quotes for strings. AirBnB loves it some single quotes. Would probably be able to change the configuration in order to maintain sanity *now*, but when I was a newbie dev, I was given a repo with AirBnB linting built in after being recommended Prettier.
It was not fun times.7
DevRant-Stats Site Update:
Added a minified version of devBanner now. Might not be interesting to use for everybody, but it was fun to implement!
Also check out CozyPlanes, the creator of devBanner!
I fucking love my SD card reader driver fucking up my whole system. How did that driver even pass BayHub's fucking QA, causing a bluescreen of death right during reboot of Windows? Anyways thanks Microsoft for that nice new bluescreen not telling me anything about the fucking problem why Windows just crashed. But at least it looks nice, so that it's more fun working all night and half a day to find the fucking problem myself. Fuck this.1
Every time I see someone praising the intelligence of the algo I imagine dfox and trogus sitting there laughing their asses of trying their hardest not to tell everyone it isn't that intelligent just has convenient timing
Almost like the texts in school that were written for fun but the teachers somehow made up the authors whole life story just by reading a line.
Apologies if the algo really is this intelligent allmighty creature2
what should i do, any ideas?
i'm a student and have a very good payed job (19h/week). Im stressed and have an ill feeling at work, not beacsuse of others but because i really Dont like the job and dont know if im good at it.
this feeling and the job is affecting my studies. I could take a job, at my university, which is muss less payed but really fun.
Do you have any advise guys?7
Fun times with postscript:
I have two EPS files that are generated by a program.
In there there is the postscript describing the file (~6000 lines) and then the preview image as TIFF. Each ps and TIFF image on its own renders correctly and looks good.
Now the fun part: The ps in combination with one of the images works, with the other image it doesn't. Somehow the ps-renderer tries to interpret the TIFF-data, which yields nonsense and the renderer stops altogether. But only for one file not for the other. And it's definitely not the ps, because if I switch the preview images the other file doesn't work.1
rm -rf "specific versions of dependencies that have not been documented anywhere".tar.gz && make clean all
*Tries to build the .deb with the new versions of dependencies*
Result: get told to kindly fuck off.
... It was a fun weekend trying to hunt down the specific combination of versions to successfully build it.1
For me is the same Friday than Monday. I do not know if it is good or bad. Maybe it is good because I do not hate my job or bad because I do not make so much fun on weekends. 😗😗
Of you, you were the last I've expected such failure and misery...
Not once, not twice, but I have you a chance so many fucking times...
I won't deny it, we've been through good times, done so may things together, and I admit that I'd never be able to work without you.... this codependence is just too damn fixated...
But, I think I should part ways with you, I'll visit sometimes, not just to have fun, but mostly because of work matter.
Sorry Linux, you've failed me, I'm leaving you for Windows.5
How to learn Flash in 2 hours.
1. Take a job to amend some HTML5 banners.
2. Realize they were created in Flash/animate CC and exported to HTML5 Canvas
3. Have 'fun' learning a very innovative way to create banners...
Well to be honest as soon as I got the hang of it, it was not that bad, if you ignore the generated code.
I'm having serious fun solving ciphers at http://cryptogram.org/resources/...
Good site to take a mental rest at2
I need ideas of projects to develop in my free time, I'm tired of the old technology and ugly projects from work, I want to develop something new, fun, to feel the excitement of coding again ;)
The field does not matter i'm willing to learn.
And , no , I can get another job, that is not an option because of the special benefits it's offering that I can not find in another company(very flexible schedule, I'm a student and need it).6
Shit, I lost the rant again. Well let's begin from the top.
This is little bit personal but I'm not keeping any of this as a secret. I'm a hyperactive thinker at nights (ADHD). I must write this down, although it's well over middle-night at this point.
I just discovered that I might be better writer whilst I'm sleepy, hungry, out of affection of the meds or all of the above.
And may I remind you that I'm not a native English speaker or writer.
* Saved to clipboard, so I won't lose this again *
I've written now 2 long rants, 8 issue reports (devRant) and a loong collab posting in this one sitting, or rather laying. It feels like I'm writing perfectly without missing a beat. I know that's not right, it's the main symptom in ADHD; My brain is actually running slower than an average, much slower. That's a reasonable explanation for the “fast” innovation.
I'm running without restrictions of a normal human, I don't "overthink" every single word and rather go with the flow. That's what spell checkers are for.
* Save *
You can probably see what's happening. It's certainly also true when writing code. I left out the normal cleaning up (except for the grammar, found 10 errors).
It's pretty much the same thing as I'd imagine being drunk or even high.
I must not be the only one.
* Writing tags... *
* Update error count *
* Recover one part from memory *10
So lately, I've been screen recording when I am working on my projects just for fun. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and SimpleScreenRecorder for screen recording. I'm using VidCutter for video editing but for some reason, it's giving me some errors and not able to save my edited videos. I don't want to do heavy video editing. I just want something like Windows movie make if some of you remember that.4
fml. too tired to learn something new. after staring at the screen for half an hour i give up, shut down brain and await to wake up more frustrated because lack of creation.
thought i'd spend a good time coding during my vacation but instead i am exhausted of home restauration. i can hardly remember when was the last time i did something just for fun and not because it simply had to be done.1
Is there anyone who actually likes using Angular?
I decided to learn it (im backend only for many years) to be less clueless in the frontend world.. and so far i find it horrible.
Is it just a "culture shock" or do frontent angular devs also find it.. not so fun to use?
What i dont like so far is the inconsistency of syntax.. i feel like similar things done differently and not following rules that can be learned, i can't remember/guess anything, everything needs to be googled
i.e- `*ngIf` vs `[ngSwitch]`
Not to mention 3 different syntaxes to simply bind a property..
I tried vueJs about 3 years ago and it was so fun and EASY21
Maybe is just me but I'm starting to move from the idea that work needs to be fun at all.
If it is, awesome! If it's not it's OK because work is just about 20% of my life in which I don't have a lot of control but enables me to have control over the other 80% (hobbies, relationships, community, fun)3
So we have a work excursion tomorrow, but we're not all based in the same city. It's 2.30 am, and I'm going to have to be up in three and a half hours to make the train.
It's not that I resent these Mandatory Fun events. I just wish they didn't require sleep deprivation.2
I spend more time reading bad written documentations with ugly examples that don't work (and anyways won't apply to other use cases) and reading about new concepts and new frameworks that should increase productivity, instead than actually write code and program.
Yes, it's increasing productivity, but it's not fun anymore
So asked to help out on an extra project that another Dev ( who is a senior developer ) is working on and I go to clone the repo but find 15 or so commit messages on the master branch saying "Work on feature x" (not an actual x). This is going to be fun...
Tried rm -rf /* on my Red Hat Vm.
Was expecting the machine to go blank suddenly,but sadly nothing like that happened.
After sometime I stopped the process,and found that no command is executing, not even 'clear' or 'poweroff',lol.
I think deleting system32 in windows is more fun as it shuts down the machine suddenly. XD1
It's always fun... When it's not for work...
I guess the best one was when I figured out how to make extensions and used it to create an app that can monitor websites for updates (like new anime) so I don't have to keep refreshing 😆😚
Use CoffeeScript they said, it will be fun they said.
NO! No, no, no, no!!!
Converting old library written in coffescript to ES6 is just fucking insane.
I see 1000 lines of code to take me at least several hours if not a whole day.
and tests are yet to come.
I have so many things I could be doing, either fun or not fun, I wish I could spawn children (processes) to do them all and just return the memorable moments and results to my brain...2
Apparently by being assigned to mission impossibles and making it through.
It's not always fun, but it sure as hell improves my skills.
A new way appeared in my life.
Everything related to cars, metal and motor engines.
I may or may not have to dissapoint some people with it, but I am not going to be a dev I guess.
It was all fun and chill. Do not worry. I am not going to leave this awesome place haha, just felt like mentioning it. :)9
A few weeks ago, my phone's lock button broke, I don't wanted to buy a new one but few weeks after, the sound broke too, not only the speaker, everything! When I was trying to play a video without sound my phone crashed...
So I bought me a new phone, and it was fun**info worth !!!
The OnePlus 5t is really amazing 😍
My teacher is so fucking annoying. Assignments are never finished on time because he never teaches shit. Studying networks was supposed to be fun, now I am just not fucking interested.7
"Rejection process is not fun. It’s the red pen on the page, the discarded sketch, sometimes is the only way forward." - Jonah Lehrer
I have a colleague who keeps hitting ctrl+S when he's not writing any code. I hit it like twice or thrice myself, but he just keeps at it. Drives me crazy in a fun way. I tried asking him about it, but he just shrugs like it's nothing.10
Oh this is fun... PSA: do not upgraade to Android Pie if you want root....
Trying to recover again now that after flashing Magisk i get a boot loop....9
Riding a fixie is like creating web application by using C.
Tiresome, and you only do it for fun and exercise.
This one is not a pure fixie however. It has torpedo brake mechanism.7
I’ve been dealing with low motivation for a few weeks now. Usually, I would take a break or build something fun, but I’m not even motivated for those things lately. Looking forward to everyone’s coping mechanisms for ideas.
guess my username before opening this Rant.
comment what you got afterwards.
Dant tag the persons not to spoil them the fun of trying :P18
It not Christmas until you program a game you have be working on for the last few months. I've been gifted with two bugs today. Oh, what fun it is to fix bugs on a one horse powered laptop!2
I'm not at all a webDev, but I like to use it occasionally because it's fun and I really like its syntax... but it's an absolute pile of shit.
If you put racing stripes and a spoiler on a golf cart, it's still a fucking golf cart.2
Me: "We seriously have an issue with staff engagement and motivation. Programmers must be given more challenges, they need to be creative, to innovate...
Boss: "Sure, but we can only do the fun things if it does not impede the Business As Usual."2
Have you ever been stuck with CSS for weeks? Being stuck in an algorithm bug is thrilling. Being stuck in CSS is surely not fun.1
I've spent the last 3 days trying to figure out what on earth was going through the head of a (now departed) contractor when he wrote the code I'm trying to fix. Took a reasonably simple part of the system and convoluted it to the point where it makes no sense! And we've realised it's not complete either!! Fun times... they are not. 😕4
This aint a rant but can you guys recommend me a game to pass time?
Id like to have a
Realistic, but not europa universalis realistic
Fun to play
Around 30min/match or ability to save
Windows is ok
Not neccessarily multiplayer, i travel quite often3
I'm not that into open source contributions, but the hacktoberfest campaign this year caught my attention. There are so many challenges and events happening... I thought I should give it a try.
So far I got 2 t-shirts and had more fun than I thought.3
Thank you KDE for setting alt+F4 by default, my brother did not have tons of fun closing my eidtors and it did not take me 15 Minutes to find the setting (┛◉Д◉)┛┻━┻
Still loving Plasma nonetheless ;-)11
At work, we had a problem in a group, Have to temporary leave an if() condition not finished, and of course i'm smart, i wrote if(0 == 0) instead of //if()
Yup, that was the only one fun moment of the day. Plz kill me
It’s 14:30 and I’ve only just opened SQL Management Studio and Visual Studio after being at work since 9am. Sometimes I hate being a team manager... so much shit shovelling and not enough fun work1
Currently writing a long-ass new issue to the Docker/CLI repository, to tell them that their online documentation for the manifests is absolute garbage. I mean, a documentation is supposed to tell you how to run commands, not something like "Yeah you try it and maybe it'll work. No it's not the good format, you dumb fuck. Nice, bro, but if you check what changed... That's right, nothing changed. At all. For no reason. Keep trying, it's fun!"
Finally, I tried objective-c programming using only my good old iPhone 3gs.
Saurik has just said that there will not be any future development in the jailbreak scene.
why ?! I wanted to develop some stuff for fun.
PS: my current emotion right now:
Always fun when you leave 7-zip to run overnight then you check in the morning and it says not enough disk space. Now I need to spend most of the morning getting stuff to external drives. 7-zip why couldn't you give me that error last night so I didn't become angry when I looked.1

I am having a fun time learning Angular. It’s way different from React.
I do like the css scoping a lot. Also it’s strange to not have to deal with state.
I am learning it because I see the job market requiring it as opposed to React.
Any React peeps feel me?3
Dart is interesting. Had fun learning that language eventhough it's not as famous as other languages like js or python.
Rewriting scripts to blacklist IPs of hacked accounts from SMTP logs. Very fun learning experience. Not really any other cool projects for me lol
Idk if you noticed but there's a "DevRant Meetup" thing going on and it looks fun : https://devrant.com/rants/971370/...
I don't know if I'll be able to go but it seemed like a fucking great idea + they will probably organise a Hackathon and because I lack skills and experiences this seems like a really nice idea + gaming tournament \o/4
It is quite a hard pick either generally coding with friends for fun or getting my first ever program done completely by myself (and I don't mean Hello world but rather my first small 'project') . But I'd probably go with my first ever program. Even though retrospectively the code is let's say not that great, it was still an awesome learning experience to actually create sth working out of code
A database fetch. All rows at once. Not that many rows, maybe 50.
But oh boy when someone forgot that the repository is wired to magically inject SQL that joins other tables and does ineffective loops to create thousands of objects in the background.
Been fun finding memory hogs in the codebase.
Well, mine is pretty different.
I was in class (grade) 5 when I first introduce to computer, it was mostly restricted to windows painting software (I forget The exact name of software). It was fun. At that, computer are not used widely use. In my school, we only do painting, making colorful picture. No internet available!3
I am bidding on freelancer for more than 2 months with the lowest charge with 1 day delivery but not getting any project. In fact nobody is getting selected for that project. At last what I see is No Freelancer Selected..
What the hell is going on Freelancer??
You need to change your protocols..or something..
Are the employer just making fun of us??2
Previous job I worked, we had a system for taking bookings. I may have made a slight miscalculation in implementing the payment api. Which resulted in people being double charged, undercharged etc. Tbh the payment gateway was ancient and we had to grapple with their SOAP API not fun. But just shows we all made mistakes, suppose it's how you deal with them, when they crop up that defines us as devs.
Where have you learned "the useful" programming ?
I mean, programming math challenges and this stuff is really fun and makes you think about things differently.
But it's not useful(It very much is, I just mean that the output programs aren't). Where did you learn useful programming ? Like creating GUI apps and stuff like that.3
6 hours of work before I actually wrote a line of code today. Reverse engineering stuff is interesting but not always fun
Currently working in an office where my tasks are pretty boring and not fun at all. On one hand I wanna quit and get a job as a gamedev, cause that is what I truly enjoy and love doing, but on the other hand my current job is paying pretty good money, so it would kinda be a step back.
Maybe you guys got some tips or advice on what I could do?2
Am I the only one who hates it with his guts that most Active Record implementations infer fields from the db?
Which motherf*cker thought it'd be fun to imagine the model through several migrations, or to imagine the data types in the languague itself when looking at the database?
Let me write the model and infer the f*cking changes to create migrations, not the other way around.
Hacking events, I always go then gather the team in the event place with team-less people.
Making new friends, having some fun, and solving some challenges.
By the way, I couldn't get a girlfriend using my coding skills, it is not working.7
I don't really like the idea of posting memes on devRant. We are not supposed to have fun here. For that we have Facebook pages! What we need here are pure rants/experience sharing from the heart. We want to connect to each other on the basis of shared experiences.
Let us share words from our heart, not memes from the internet.
Please let's not make it another r/ProgrammerHumor !!!8
So over the past few weeks I have been smacking my head against the table tying to solve my work problem and failing to... Today I spend a few hours at work not working and playing with code making something fun and easy. After this I go back to the headache and if my magic get something working.
I was wondering...
What do you guys think of different work places e.g not working at your desk but instead working outside with a laptop?
I think you would lose alot if productivity because your screensize is limited and so on while coding. But if you're just writing/replying to Emails i think it could be fun.4
I'm probably going to stay up all night to finish my school project... It's not even for an grade but I would feel like shit not having finished it.
Also it's propably a fun story to tell.6
cout<<"I hate mondays."<<endl;
My favorite method to learn something new is just to buy a book or download a paper about it or something lock myself up in my desk and not go home until I accomplished something. Those have been some fun nights so far!
Tomorrow is the final technical review on a project we're working on with friends at school since September. The subject was not entertaining but we had a lot of fun trying stuffs (think Node, Vue, Raspberry). I've been writing my part of our final report all the week-end (security and deployment) and it is very nice to see how we managed to do something cool out of that subject !
Worked on a project where for three month had not even a single task. First week was a nightmare, later on ive lost hope and decided to learn something fancy. So in the end it was fun.
Mod_wsgi for apache is like scratching your freshly cut nails on a chalkboard while eating oysters covered in ketchup.
Why does WAMP have to be a pain for everything? I'm going to just use some premade thing for this because getting stuck on setup is not my idea of fun when I have python APIs to debug.4
Why those f***ers in Freescale was unable to keep architecture same across their product lines? Why has KL25Z completely different archtecture than KL28Z? Registers are renamed randomly, peripheries removed and added with different architecture... That naming is just happy coincidence not same line in their products...
This porting is gonna be fun.
Jumping through hoops to get on Toptal is not fun. Got so sick of the sample project taking up my time that I'm turning it into a real website haha.2
Pathfinder (D&D 3.5E fork).
I'm glad (but not surprised) not being the only one here.
My current character is a untalented half orc bard with huge knowledge who was forced to be a barbarian.
It's an interesting combination and fun to play.3
I really do not understand why people do not use the defaults, I see a PHP code and I see all the PSR's violated, SOLID violated, and as it is something of years, unfortunately we did not get more rapporteur in a timely manner. I didn't go to college, but I must say, what the hell do you guys do in college?
Then many (the good obviously) programmers do not understand why they take so much the fun of PHP, if they see the codes that I see lately...2
Well this morning has been fun with Github's pull requests and issues not working.
I always love when I pick C again just for fun. I'm really used to "print" something if I'm not sure about that in basically everything.
You wanna print something in C? Well unless you know what and where it is (no point of print-checking then), it'll just happily crash without any reported error. Not to mention if I wanna find a bug, I don't have to get a debugger! Printf alone is basically a breakpoint! Ah stupid me :D
Tried to install MS-DOS 6.22. Was not fun at all. Tried 3 iso flashers in total. The closest that happened to DOS was unetbootin getting bootlooped on the 10 second countdown to automatic system start. I gave up on it eventually.
Not a job but some years ago I have set up a boot password, I don't even remember, on 2 school computers...
Just for fun...
They didn't catch me though :)1
Working on a xslt just to change a single character in an invoice. The system I use does not have the euros sign...
Because fuck manually editing the pdf every month.
B awsome as usual and chill have fun wth coding not limited to working hours.
Make coding my prority one hobby... Then the rest 😉
Starting wt contributing to an open source project...
Not having ever completed a project, except for a really simple app my school asked me to do. It's like I start to make something, anything, but then I lose interest in it pretty quickly. I guess it's because I can't come up with an idea of something that I think would be really useful/fun.
Anyone else who can't comment on github?
Also was I had to try my pushes severally over the weekend(Not the fun kind).
Is github okay?1
There always fun working on ReactJS cause it always let you decide all backend part in front end except permanent storage.
When you not ready
When you ready
so yesterday was a fun day. I'm wiring up dbvis toour db life cycle envs. connection to dev, works. move on to Val, connection works. move on to prod, boom, dbvis violates some security protocal that obviously does not exist in dev or Val which locks out the dB acct. I single handedly shutdown production, simply trying to connect with dbvis. smh. what a day!!
Anyone had any experience running their own matrix server (not the movie one smartasses)? Seems like it would be a fun endeavor but i wanted to see if it was a pain in anyone's ass first.
1.) I enjoy puzzles
2.) It's an art form that that involves not only creativity but logic
3.) Breaking things is fun
I cannot not like backend, I'm currently trying to build an Angular WebApp together with a Java Project through Maven. It's just too much fun to mess with stuff like this.1
Got an enigma to resolve in my school during a treasure hunt (not sure if it's the good expression) which was translating binary in lattitude and longitude. That was not really difficult but fun
As my plan A for education/training failed horribly around two years ago(as it turns out, you can be too big for fun rides like commercial airliners), and as it is my currently working plan B, i guess it gave me new opportunities and will hopefully help me afford food in the near future. It also made me a lot more cynical, but i do not know if there is a distinct connection between coding and cynicism.
Me: * Not having fun writing hundreds of tests/assertions for an API *
Also me: * Submitting changes without running my tests *
Production: * BROKEN *
RUN YOUR EFFING TESTS EVEN IF THE CHANGES ARE SMALL OR STRAIGHTFORWARD OR SIMPLE OR WHATEVER
And don't fck up the rest of your life...
There are a lot more fun things not only programming. Enjoy
I'm looking at starting a SAAS app not for the money but for fun and XP. I know Todo SAAS are everywhere but I think that would be a great intro into the SAAS world. What are your thoughts?
