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
Mom: Oh cool! So you can hack sites and accounts now?
Me: No mom.. I'll be making stuff, not breaking it.

Hmm, this thing doesn't have a charger with it.. looks like it's taking 18.5V.. my HP laptop's charger supplies that but its barrel connector doesn't fit 🤔
Regular users: oh dear now I have to buy a charger with a fitting connector for this.. where do I even start?!
Me: Well I guess I could just remove the charging port and solder some wires straight into the board instead 🤔
But that voltage.. my HP laptop's charger is still in use and I don't really want to fuck around with that one.
Regular users: oh dear oh dear, shouldn't I just throw this laptop away?
Me: well I guess that I could just use one of the rails of my upgraded lab bench power supply for it?

Continuation from :
Hi everybody! I am sorry that as a first time poster I am building 2 long stories, but I really like the idea of connecting with other people here!
Well, as I was mentioning before, I got a job in Android development and had a blast with it. Me and the developer clicked and would spend our time discussing PHP, the move to other stacks (I was making him love the idea of Django or Spring Java) games, bands and cool stuff like that. This dude was my hero, his own stack was developed in a similar MVC fashion that he had implemented from scratch before for many projects. It was through him that I learned how to use my own code (rather than frameworks and other libraries) to build what I wanted. I seriously thought that I had it made with a position that respected me and placed me in the lead mobile development position of the company. Then it happened. He had taken 2 weeks of unauthorized leave, which was ok since he was best friends with the owner of the company, those 2 along another asshole started it so they could do whatever they wanted. And I could not make much progress without him being there since there were things that he needed to do, that I was not allowed, for me to continue. When he came back I was quickly rushed to the owner of the company's office to discuss my lack of progress. The lead developer was livid, as if he knew that he had fucked up. He blamed the whole thing on me (literally told the owner that it was my fault before I was summoned) and that we lost 2 weeks of business time because I did not had the initiative to make progress on my own. I felt absolutely horrible, someone that I had trusted and befriended doing something like that, I really felt like shit. I had mad respect and love for this guy. It got heated, I showed the owner the text messages in which I showed him my pleas to led me finish the parts that were needed while he was away. Funny enough, he acted betrayed. After that it was 3 months of barely talking to one another except for work related stuff. He got cold and would barely let me touch the internal code that he was developing. It was painful. The owner kept complaining about progress and demanded that I do a document scanner for the company, which was to be attached to their mobile application. Not only that but it had to be done with OpenCV. Now, CV is great, but it is its own area, it takes a while to be able to develop something nice with it that is efficient and not a shitstorm.
I had two weeks.
Finished in one. After burning my brain and ensuring that the c++ code was not giving issues and the project was steady I turned it in...to their dismay. And I say so because I felt that they gave me such a huge project with the intention of firing me if it was not done. After that it was constant shit from the owner and the lead developer. I was asked then to port the code to the IOS version. I had some knowledge of it already so I started working on it. Progress was fast since the initial idea was already there and I really love working on Apple devices. And when I was 70% done the owner decided to cut me loose. At first he cited things such as lack of funding and him being unable to pay my salary. I was fine with that even though I knew it was not true. So at the time I just nodded and thanked the company for my time there. Before I left, he decided to blame it on me, stating that if they were not producing money that it was perhaps my fault. I lost my shit, and started using my military voice to explain to him how a software company is normally ran. Then I stormed out.
It was known to me, that the lead developer had actually argued against me being laid off. And that he was upset about it, we made amends, but the fact remains that I was laid off because the owner did not think of me as an asset, regardless of how many times I worked alongside the lead developer or how valuable I was actually to the company, their infrastructure did get better while we worked together, so I just assumed that he never actually did any mention of my value.
I lasted 2 months without a job, feeling horribly shitty because my wife had to work harder to ensure our stability whilst I was without any sort of salary. At this time I had already my degree, so all I had to do was look better. In the meantime I decided to study more about other technologies. I learn React, and got way better at JS and Node that I thought I could and was finally able to get another job as a full stack developer for another company.
I have been here since 2 months. It has been weird, we do classic ASP, which is completely pointless at this time, but meh. At this time though, I just don't really have the same motivation. Its really hard for me to trust the people that I work with and would like to connect with more developers.21
Yesterday, my manager said "you don't have to worry, I'll take care of it"
Today, my manager says "finish it today by any means possible, otherwise I'm gonna get screwed by my boss"

One thing I've noticed about devRant is the ratio of web dev/mobile dev posts to database/architecture/big data dev posts. There's A LOT of you web peeps out there, and not enough data dudes, which I guess justifies my constant demand, salary and lack of competition. Just an observation.9
I was reading the post made by another ranter in which he was basically asked to lower the complexity of an automation script he wrote in place of something everyone else could understand. Another dev commented that more than likely it had to do with the company being worried that ranter_1 would leave and there would be no one capable of maintaining the code.
I understood this completely from both perspectives. It makes me worry how real this sometimes is. We don't get to implement X tech stack because people are worried that no one would be able to maintain Y project in the event of someone leaving. But fuck man, sometimes one wants to expand more and do things differently.
At work I came to find out that the main reason why the entirety of our stack is built in PHP is because the first dev hired into the web tech department(which is only about 12 years old in my institution) only knew PHP. The other part that deals with Java is due to some extensions to some third party applications that we have, Java knowledge (more specifically Spring and Grails) is used for those, the rest is mostly PHP. And while I LOVE PHP and don't really have anything against the language I really wonder what would it be of the institution had we've had a developer with a more....esoteric taste. Clojure, Elixir, Haskell, F# and many others. These are languages and tech stacks that bring such a forward way of thinking into the way we build things.
On the other hand, I understand if the talent pool for each of these stacks is somewhat hard to come up with, but if we don't push for certain items then they will never grow.
The other week I got scolded by the lead dev from the web tech department for using Clojure to create the demo of an application. He said that the project will most likely fall into his hands and he does not know the stack. I calmly mentioned that I would gladly take care of it if given the opportunity as well as to explain to him how the code works and provide training to everyone for it :D I also (in all of my greatness) built the same program for him in PHP. Now, I outrank him :P so the scold bounced out of the window, plus he is a friend, but the fact remains that we reached the situation in which the performance as well as the benefits of one stack were shadowed by the fact that it holds a more esoteric place in the development community.
In the end I am happy to provide the PHP codebase to him. The head of the department + my boss were already impressed with the fact that I was able to build the product in a small amount of time using a potent tech stack, they know where my abilities are and what I can do. That to me was all that matters, even if the project gets shelved, the fact that I was able to use it at work for something means a lot to me.
That and I got permission to use it for the things that will happen with my new department + the collective interest of everyone in paying me to give support even if I ever leave the institution.
Tonight is my school's prom and I'm the only one of my friends that's not going. My original date cancelled on me and the other one ended up getting a boyfriend and cancelled too. Oh well.

Me: soooo can you get this done by next week?
Other dev: well who knows what rabbit hole I'll fall down. There's no way to tell.
Me: can you just avoid falling down a rabbit hole? We have a deadline.
Other dev: oh ya there's no way to know for sure.
Me: ....... Can you please try harder
Other dev: I'm trying I can't.

School gave me 3 DigitalOcean droplets to try out Kubernetes in the cloud, awesome!
Wrote an Ansible script to not only simply install docker and add users but also add kubernetes, nice!
Oh wait, error?! Well I should've known this wasn't going to be easy... ah well no problem. Let's see... Ansible is cryptic as always, it can't connect to the API server? Is it even running?
Let's ssh to the master, ah nothing is running, great. Let's try out kubeadm init and see what happens, oh gosh, my Docker version has not been validated! No problem, let's just downgrade!
How do I do that? Oh I know, change the version in the role! Wait that version doesn't exit? Let's travel to Docker's website and see what versions exist of docker-ce, oh I see, it needs a subversion, no problem.
Oh that errors too? Wait then what... Oh I need a ~ and a ubuntu and a 0 somewhere, my mistake!
Let's run it again! Fails!
Same ssh process, oh wait...
Oh god no...
Kubernetes requires 2 cores and these things only have 1...
Welp, time to ask the teachers to resize my droplet by a small amount tomorrow, hopefully I'll get a new error!
My adventure so far with Kubernetes. I'm not installing it for any serious/prod reason, just for educational purposes. K8s seems like 'endgame' to me, like one of the 'big guys' that big enterprises use so I'm eager to throw stuff at a droplet and see what happens.
Going further down the rabbit hole tomorrow!
Wish me luck :3
(And yes, I could've figured this all out beforehand with documentation, but this is more fun in my opinion)8

Anyone ever run across some code that was so succinct and elegant, that you couldn't imagine ever doing something like that and start to feel bad?
<Look up who committed it>
Oh, well, damn... I used to be so good at this coding thing.
So about a month ago I started this project for myself and decided I would work on it almost everyday, even if it was just for 30 minutes!
But when I get home I'm always so tired all I can do is sit, almost brain dead and watch something (youtube, netflix, whatever).
Anyway, haven't touched it since that first week.12
When my most hated ex tried to contact me in LinkedIn, since he works as a recruiter for some lame, generic HR company.

Why I'm doing crazy shit all the time ?
Playing Metro, Skyrim, now AC Rogue on my Linux tablet.
Installing even Linux on damn baytrail tablet.
Installing MSdos onSSD (possible kinda)
Yeah I'm crazy geek as my friends say :)
Also who would fucking say that its possible to compile LineageOS onRpi zero ?
Well i didn't knew too but well tried it took so much time but well I have it running all day so oh why not.14
ohhhh nice installed kerbal space program and space enginners on my linux tablet but damn i want universe sandbox 2 soooo much but well 22 euro is kinda expensive but oh well not the point.
the games runs great.3
Sometime this year(what is left of it) or the next I will be promoted to the senior developer in charge of two schools.....
I already thought that the level of work that me and the current senior do is way too fucking much for two people. Can't really fathom all of it just being me without seeing a substantial increase in salary(there is one in place for it...but shit man I know myself and even then I am going to bitch about it repeatedly)
What sucks the most is that I can't wing it or just not give a fuck(my preferred technique) since I really like my department, my coworkers and specially my manager.
Its her fault. It really is. She is just so likeable and I really can't imagine not giving her anything other than my 100 .
And before everyone states that it should be 100 from the get go. I am not particularly fond of giving my all for a company/institution. Never.
The reason is that I have been fucked with way more times than I can count and normally feel that regardless of how much of a total badass I can be I will never see the full compensation of it. It has happened on every other job. So instead of working for the company I work for my team. If I don't like my team I don't give a fuck.
I am a good worker, was an excellent soldier and I am an even better engineer. But there is always this feeling that I am being taken advantage of that I just can't shake off everywhere that I am working at.
Even now, the reason why the lead is leaving is because of how he was fucked over during the reclassification process. It was a slap to him in the face. Now this glorious institution will lose someone that is really amazing all because they take shit for granted.
Everyone is a number, an id. As irreplaceable as we are they treated him as someone that would just take shit and be fine with it.
And trust me, where I am at, we ARE irreplaceable, this ain't cali where you flip a stone and you get 100 node/php devs. This is 0 man ground where devs are fucking wizards that no one knows exist.
Fuck me I forgot to eat (was too busy at work) and I lost my chance to eat anything from the cafeteria.
Oh well...vending machine it is.2
currently in a hackaton right now and I really hate my self for being so dumb in presenting/explaining my idea. oh well, better luck next time.2
I just applied for a an programming job for the first time. Yeah i know huge fucking suprise Haxk20 never worked as real programmer just home stuff.
I didnt want to send the resume yet but well i clicked the button and oh well it send it so well fuck it.
I would be kind of OK if they dont even call me but well if they do i will be fucking happy.16
Well happy new year guys.
I don't see why we would celebrate this day but ohhh well .
For me its normal day but for others some cool day that ends one year and begins another at least if would they celebrate it at the right time but well they do not celebrate it at right time.
Idk the exact time when new year begins but its definetly not 00:00.
In short our time in not accurate to earth rotation.
But oh well I adapted but still don't like it.
But well that may be only me who thinks about it like this.
This same applies to birthdays, Christmas, and other.
Its just normal day that people gave special meaning that I don't like.
Again this might be only me.
The fuck is wrong with android development?!
Every little shit app depends on Google-Services.
Oh you want this app that essentially just keeps track of your homework?
Well fuck you, because we decided to display a login-with-google popup at the start and now, the app won't run if you use an ungoogled ROM.6
Oh, it's finally done and works well!
Oh, let me just optimize that a little... And probably rename this...
5 minutes later:
Shit it does not work now.
10 hours of debugging later:
I'll fix it later
To all new devs:
Commit more regularly
when company releases a new hardware and decide to ditch and remove all documentation and software required for the previous model, it's a great reason to ditch the fuckin bastards and buy a competitors product.
oh wait, they went down 3 years ago as well
I prefer functional style programming because it is easier to me to think in modules and functional hierarchies than it is object style shierarchies.
All in all, languages like F# and Clojure have always been fascinating to me. I wish I could find a use case for Haskell, but I can't. If anything F# is awesome to me because I already know .NET and really dig the entire framework, the strides made by Core are outstanding.
I had tried Scala before and just couldn't get into it. Far easier to just stick to Java even if I hate the idea of extending classes all over the place.
Ocaml is interesting too, but I know little to nothing about it, and Elixir looks far too much like Ruby for my taste even if I do like Ruby.
Choice is good, but sometimes overwhelming14
Oh so your deadline is Wednesday and you will travel on Thursday? Let's have a full day meeting on Monday... WELL FUCK YOU TOO!!!
Partners off at TAFE and I've got 3 hours to kill before walking to work, maccas and writing it is then!
Wish I brought my Mac so I could work on my other projects but oh well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯11
Ffs when a designer just increase the mobile viewport size because their design didn't fit in UI.
Oh well, scale 0.8 here we come asshole.1
God fucking damnit automating a client's "Job applicant form" system is the most boring shit l've ever done.
Get me some damn monkeys to do this
"Oh OK so I just have to take this form and turn it into HTML. Oh shit, 25 check box's, let's just copy paste this shit in over and over. Oh damn, forgot I have to change the name and value fields for each one. God damnit this is boring, I guess I have to"
Fucking hell it's annoying work, Boring, easy, no thought needed. Ended up turning this task into a drinking game. Every time the word "Management" came up, I took a shot. Got me pretty fucked up.
Client emails back; "Oh ya, I forgot to tell you, we have these 3 other forms we want you to automate".
Well fuck at this point I feel like more of an alcoholic than a developer.5
WOW. Reported Freesync bug where im not able to see vrr_capable option with my eDP display and they responded in 15 minutes. Good job. Seems like this was high priority i guess.
Not my usual style of rants like not updating but oh well.
Ok, let's actually try and work on my games Dev kit workspace functionality and not get side tracked with devRant... Oh fuck I'm on it right now... Well shit!
I think I browse through devRant at an unhealthy amount lol
I hate subscription-based payments.
Oh, you want to charge my credit card 90$ if I forget to remove it from your shitty website? Oh, well.
Just remembered the CIO wanted to discuss a project with me when I "got a moment". That was 4 months ago... and I work somewhere else now. Oh well.
Playing horror games
| Lights on -> cant see shit on the screen and more vulnerable to jumpscares
| Lights off -> the atmosphere of the room is generally spookier and i get scared of misc. noises
Forget missing semicolons; accidental dots are IN. Was wondering how the hell the method that was working EVERYWHERE ELSE was throwing here. Oh well, now I know4
So ... Yeah ... I survived a week in my holiday apartment with no wifi...
Now to wait for that phone bill 😂 oh well
One of my closest friends at work is 50. He is very well kept despise his age and feels like a young soul to me. The man could be my dad because of his age but we still hang out like regular friends.
I am 27, turn 28 this month.
The other day he said that he was glad I went through the military. He said that it was because of that that I matured way past my age and that thanks to all the traumatic shit I have an older soul.
While I don't disagree, I kinda feel sad at it, it was one of the only instances in which i have felt that my military service has brought something semi good from it.
Friends are cool tho.9
Fuck you scp. I was uploading 6GB file to an EC2 server. Well, needless to say, "no space left on device" after all 6GB transferred was the biggest FUCK YOU moment. Seriously. Send the file size and check before you waste 30 minutes of my time. Oh, and don't read CLI command data as part of the transfer. You suck.9
Point out everyone else's bullshit. Some people will tell you you are mean or you lack soft skills or that they can no longer work with you and you should go to see a therapist, but oh well, you are an engineer not their mom. You are just being rational.5
A guy looks up the word 'spring' to find out about Spring season and Google suggests Spring Framework. Google, you nerds!
Oh well, cookies.2
Oh, I did it again!
Everytime I think I will write proper standard code with full documentation, but well, guess who didn't write documentation... And now forgot how his own code works.4
Five interviews and challenges later and I’m told they won’t be going further with me.
Over month of my life. Finally thought this was the one. But oh well. Depression.
I officially quit being a dev.
It’s been rad y’all.13
Like wtf ?? What wrong with you clang ?
Android-base/unique_fd.h not found oh ok.
Well its there.
Just changed it for another file and it worked.
I used full path to the file and it worked.
So how the fuck cant you find the file when its surely there ????????7
Reinstalling my linux partition and... Oh whoops.. ... ...
That was the windows partition.. ...
Well I guess that's gone forever now...
I should have learned by now that I don't multitask well... Note to self: Don't talk on the phone and re inst... Scratch that... Note to self: Do one damn thing at a time dummy..9
Not only is the documentation only in Chinese, but also the labels used in the components are. 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
Oh well time to get my hands dirty.3
I used to think decrappifying my own CSS was hard... trying to help someone else is a whole other monster.
PHP, JS all have some method to their madness but CSS: “oh you center aligned your heading? Well guess everything else needs to be pushed wherever the fuck I feel like on the page”
Well, a question and then a statement.
Interviewer: ”What would you say about [salary here]?”
Me, completely incapable of bargaining: ”Well, maybe I would like it a bit higher...?”.
Interviewer: ”Policy states we start at [same salary]”
Me, still incapable. ”Alright then! I’ll take the job!”
Later same day when turning down the other jobs I was simultaneously in the process of aquiring.
Contact from other firm: ”Sorry to hear that. I hope the reason wasn’t salary, because we could have solved that.”
Well, the reason wasn’t the money, but maybe the reason for choosing the other job COULD have been money. Oh well...
//OK OK not dev rant but oh well
Well fuck. Good day today. 1:42AM. Went out with friends. Had nice time. Came home. Came to some stream. Played marbles on Stream. Main prize Project CARS 2. Naaaah i cant win that. Guy is 20 points ahead of me.
3 wins and 2 times second place later i win by 6 points.
Holy crap didnt expect that surely.
TBH i wanted Project CARS and even 2 when it launched. But i coudlnt play it on my PC back then. Now that i can im happy that i won it because the graphics in that game Oh boy.
I just stumbled upon a first game I ever programmed back in highschool. Oh the nostalgia and the urge to cringe. Apparently I thought programing a game in visual basic and leaving an enormus memory leak was a good idea. Well I guess you have to start somewhere.3
Laptop has died. This is probably a significant blocker to development...
Oh well time to buy a new one I guess!1
Are they serious ? First commit to Linux kernel in 2019 is going to be ARM stuff. Well that tells us something about 2019.
If it was the AMDGPU fix pull then i would be fucking happy but ARM. Oh well. Still better then F2FS merge.7
Coworker: I've been working on this computer for an entire day now and it's still having issues
Boss: Well, we can give the client an option to get another SSD and clone to it before reinstalling the OS.
Coworker: But he doens't have an SSD...
Boss: Yes he does
Coworker: *opens computer* let's see, two 1TB hard drives... but no SSD... Oh, there it is. It's hidden. But it's booting too slow to be....
Coworker: Oh my god. I've been telling the computer to boot to the wrong hard drive. That explains everything!1
My boss started contemplating whether to start using styled-components for react.
I showed him Vue: "oh well, so we're basically recreating Vue within jsx?"
I'm not sure what problem we're solving anymore1
friend: Hey,what's this app, devRant on your phone?
me: well,it's where developers share their views....
friend: oh, it's like facebook for coders?
PBF: This program is so difficult
Me: what's difficult about it?
PBF: *may as well be speaking greek*
Me: Oh. Well, I'm sure you'll kill it. I believe in you ❤
When the client wants to deploy a patch to their app that is hosted on the cloud, but wants to do it onsite.
Oh well, might as well visit the data center of the cloud provider
When some other team wants to blame us because they're getting a HTTP Status Code 0....
That's not even a valid status... IT MEANS YOU ABORTED THE REQUEST AND KILLED THE CONNECTION...
OH STILL OUR FAULT... WELL DO U KNOW ABOUT NETWORK ISSUES AND SERVER OVERLOADING WHEN U SPAM IT WITH TOO MANY REQUESTS?
OH YOU RETRIED? HOW DID YOU RETRY? BETTER NOT BE SPAMMING US WITH MORE REQUESTS...
EVER HEARD OF TCP/IP BACK OFF LOGIC....4
Nothing like good old Adobe flash on Windows 2000 to keep air lines on time... Oh wait, what? Their computer system crashed again? Oh well, never mind :(8
The company's director and I:
Me: Well, we could just send the parameters to the server, let it render it and get a response back.
Me: With an API.
OK I have RAM but laptop is still in repair LOL. Kind of hoped that it would arrive as the laptop but I ordered it too soon. Oh well at least when it comes I will have the RAM ready.
Side project is swift. Loads of feedback! I'm happy. Fucked up part is the users who wants it uses Android. Oh well, time to learn React Native2
Time spent getting to grips with your OS is usually time spent well. While you're not operations, it really helps being able to solve general problems yourself without calling support.
Oh, and: Set up a good bashrc, and put it on the servers you're working with.4
I love python, but I hate dealing with python dependencies, especially on Windows.
I was tinkering and researching with neural networks, so I wanted to try out pybrain. I wrote my project, with pybrain installed via pip, and tried to build it.
Oh, what's that? Pybrain doesn't work with python 3? Well I'll download the version that's supposed to. Oh, that version has a deprecated numpy api? Let me just install those other resources. Oh, that requires a broken module that has no publicly available source?
Let's try python 2. Oh, now that's working, I just need to export environment variables for some "bls source". Some quick Google searching and the only solution that would work is building a bunch of cywgin modules by hand. That's fine, I have an ubuntu partition.
An hour later I'm compiling FORTRAN dependencies on Ubuntu.
Coding time: 1 hour
Dependency time: 3 hours6
As i said in older rant. Im preparing an patch for the linux kernel to allow overclocking even if pptables on GPU doesnt support it. Its beyond specification. Literally.
Oh well F it.
It may not even get mainlined but well F it.4
I am pretty much a designer.
I hope I didn't give others bad experiences~
Oh well I always loudly rant and get insulting when I see comic sans (in wrong usage) or ugly websites (not old or weird but old looking AND overdesigned 😓).
Probably that's what's most annoying when you're talking about me as a designer.5
Company A: Oh yes we work with this huge tech company all the time and our APIs are just amazingly well made! DONT WORRY!
Company B: Yeah we've worked together once or twice and nothing seemed to go wrong the last time. DONT WORRY!
Reality: 11 API warnings, no data transfer and a SQL error meaning nothing I've been working on actually worked. #Rantover2
If anyone here remembers the first 2 part rant story I posted then you will know that I got unceremoniously laid off by a company that tried to blame me for their bad decissions at one point
Well, a couple of days ago I found out that the senior dev and the owner took a trip to San antonio tx in order to try and look for growth opportunities and more developers. The thing is, being a Mexican company they thought they could go away with half assed solutions and mexican pay charts (to them it is completely reasonable to pay a dev with a degree and experience close to 13.99 an hour) just to find out that shit like that does not fly with American professionals. After I left, no one would monitor their .net implementations , the lead developer being a new php developer himself and not knowing much about .net had to take care of much of the things they had to work with, their API made no sense and it was damn near impossible to connect their services to a mobile platform unless you had ninja like skills and ingenuity.
I hold no grudges and really wish them the best, but it pleases me to know that they know now that their way of doing things is not standard in the U.S. now that makes me happy.
Saturday morning. 10am.
Me: happily sleeping on the sofa in a friend's apartment.
Boss calls: 'oh did I wake you up? Can you please develop this mockup over the weekend?'
Being half asleep I agreed.
Well. After 7h without any break it is done. But one Saturday is lost and I'll never get it back :(6
Story of coding affecting my dating?
Well whenever I start a new language, I always find myself having difficulties with time and date structure-
Wait, that's not the subject? ... oh the other kind of "date". Well, not finding difficulties for something I'm not looking forward to lol
Oh the landing page you gave me 2 fucking hours to complete isn't converting so well??? I wonder why 🙃🙃🙃1
Started working on a per project in Rust (first time using Rust) .. a scripting language.
Rust is great, so fast, compiles in 0.5-1.2seconds on my $200 laptop as well! Pretty rare for safety, speed, AND compile speed to exist in one beautiful language.
Also my scripting language is the opposite of beautiful. Oh God.3
The pain of using third-party library with unclear documentation.
"Oh just read the code"
well it would've helped IF THE CODECLIMATE RATING ISN'T 0.4. D:
WHY WOULD A LICENSE WORK FOR A BACKUP SOFTWARE ONCE, AND THEN NOT BE RECOGNIZED?!
I haaaaaaaaate shoddy license management.
Oh and Sage is an awful company with terrible software as well.2
They think I play too many games as a dev, in reality I play games when I don’t dev and am bored. However, even programming is a game somehow. Oh well, I still love every one of my projects.3
Wait spotify is blocked in my office but other guys spotify are not blocked? Oh well I'll just use the unblocked deezer. Thanks to my coworker.15
Lets make an app that shows a lot of ads. Oh, people actually have to download and use it? Well, let's half-ass a game and name it [...] of[...]!
-every mobile game studio2
... I really truly hate with a passion..
when you've agreed on one solution and when it's done, but not approved and deployed..
suddenly decides "oh it needs, x-y-z that I said it won't need"..
Mind you, that x-y-z things mean rewriting a lot of it...
Oh well, at least I get paid for the extra hours to be spent.1
Gotta learn myself through vim and tmux because I have no choice. My laptop burst and all I have is a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian core + MATE DE installed. Don't really wanna use heavy stuff with it because it'll become really snappy.
Oh well, as long as I can code.9
What's the point of opening a PR if you're just going to immediately merge it without even asking anyone to look at it? Just so you can say "Oh look I'm following process"? Well, you're not..2
Oh well, glad it's not a wk98 rant, just annoying to install and sync the data, this time I am going to do a full image backup after installing the basic things1
Ah I feel so accomplished. My desktop (running Manjaro) had a Linux kernal module error and couldn't find my drives after a system restore (my fault, forgot to restore a specific sector). Well after a few hours, I managed to save it! Oh liveCDs you're wonderful. No data lost~!
So I decided to try out Kubuntu 18.10, aaaaand it doesn't work too well for me. Oh well, back to 18.04 :v
😂 PHPStorm's integrated terminal sucks! Doesn't play well with other oh-my-zsh themes so I just use the default theme.
Plus the ugly block cursor in the integrated terminal which cannot be edited. LOL! 😂6
PREBUILD PC? YEAH... BROKE AFTER A FUCKING YEAR... AN ASSFUCKED YEAR! HOW COULD SOMEONE BUILD SUCH A SHIT OF A MACHINE...
Oh well... saved the grafics card, HDD and SSD... time to get new Parts and build a custom one myself...
Warranty you say? No i tell you...10
Y'know, up until now, everyone was just bragging about who has the most ++s... (I'm kidding, that didn't really happen... I think...?)
But now that we have ++s in binary, we can literally brag about who has the LONGEST... string of ++s.
Not... something else. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Oh well, size doesn't matter anyway.
Happy Easter/April Fools! °u°2
Today is SQL day.
Been some time since I had to go here, the queries are flooding back to my mind like water over a dam wall. How the heck I remembered these is what I pondered.
Oh well, back to SQL (at a client - yay).
Now you SQL me, now you don't.
So apparently, png++ is a shitty library that doesn't flush its output streams so I had to use libgd in C++ instead
We are moving from Oracle 10g to SQL Server 2019 because Oracle doesn't want to provide support to our legacy 10g database.
It doesn't much sense well anyways god bless us during data migration.
Oh one last thing, fuck business analyst team.4
when you are so used to Unreal Engine crashing while trying to debug your code that you're actually suprised when it doesn't x'D
ya I'm pretty sure I'm not debugging it in the most efficient way, but oh well. Progress I guess.
Me: *randomly streaming myself code just because*
Friend: "So what are you doing"
Me: "I'm trying to parse a file. The specs are here - oh"
Me: "I set screenshare to vs code only, so you can't see it"
Friend: "It's alright, just pass me the link"
Me: "Well, this is vs code, so I might as well check if it can display websites"
Friend: "No way you'd need that,"
* simple browser
Friend: "Please no"
"Enter url here"
Friend: *dies of bloat*
Me: "All hail the bloat"
Friend in heaven: "Stop, your bloat will drag me down to hell"
So yeah, bloat can be useful sometimes4
Listening to Home, In love with a ghost or any other no lyric chill music. Keeps me going for hours, oh lots of coffee as well ofc.1
Sales: Hey @chenb0x, we told the Client that you were a phone phreak and could make any communication device work.
Me: Well, I don't think that's such a good idea becau-
Sales: Oh, you can do it! Here's the equivalent of a black box and a pocket knife. Have fun!
Me: But, Sales I reall-
Well then..... t( '-' t)1
Remember how I made script to change brightness with keyboard shortcuts? https://devrant.com/rants/1845183/...
Well, after 2 days of complaining why the fuck this shit does not work anymore, I figured out I deleted it...also from trash.... OH, FUCK!!!3
Well, tried to install Ubuntu on my other personal laptop today.
Never have I wanted to use Linux so bad and not been able to. Why oh fucking why must I get this error, and the shittiest thing is I have no clue where to start.35
Why the fuck does windows use 100MB for the efi partition? Like oh hey I will exactly allocate enough space for me. Oh you want ArchLinux and NixOs too? Well fuck you have fun dangouresly moving around partition just to increase the fucking size of the efi partition I just allocated at install-time without ever asking you about it.6
Got absolute worse hair style today,
Had long hair with stubble (like Jesus)
Went to saloon and said surprise me , and oh well he did ...
It’s only fair to update the avatar7
Blowing up the PR scope waaayy beyond the ticket scope by applying the "oh, lemme fix this as well..." mantra.2
Friend: where did you go to college, to do something like that?
Me: oh well I went to the university of my bedroom.
Well, support chat of my bank has nice avatars of persons answering my questions. But they so small...
Ok. Inspect element... Image link. Oh, it's just 2500x2500 image resized to 35x35... Now I just need a small hand-crafted chrome extension to add click to enlarge on these avatars.
These girls are really pretty though:)3
So far I feel a lil in over my head. Decided to install archlabs. Not great with command line and I wanna get better so I figure this is as good a way to learn as any. Little nervous that windows is gone but oh well!2
Sooo, my first rant here.
Just joined a company and all of their websites are built on WordPress, and personally I am by far not a huge fan of WordPress, tried digging around for an alternative to suggest switching and just fuuuuuuuuuck, there is just too much shit, and half of it is even worse than WordPress, oh well...8
I'm back! I had to move and everything went to shit. Instead of being a proper person, I shut down. I think I'm ready for devrant again, you guys are awesome and motivate me so much.. I don't even know why I stopped being on here. Oh well.. Hello there!3
Tomorrow I go back to work. It was one beautiful week of vacation after years without having one (since 2012) and the next one is comming up in 3 weeks. Man cannot wait. Started a small Spring Boot project with Vue.js as the front end and have been having a vlast with it (see what I did there) after considering many stacks.
Went through Python flask, ror, php lumen, php codeigniter, mean, Meteor, Sails and finally settled on Spring :) the front end was a tad harder since I am better with React and Angular but wanted to try something different. Cant wait till I continue with this.6
I just hate when shit is out of data. And mostly kernel stuff. I just found out that our dev team (SODP) have 2_3 months old wifi drivers.
Normal person would not care. It works right ? Well depends. Sometimes wifi drops etc.
So I just decided to upgrade them.
Oh God thanks that we did not push too many changes there and I could just merge it all. Runs very well.
Surprisingly easy to do.2
Finnaly found some documentation and guidelines for creating Ubuntu suru icons, this took way too long to find!
Oh well, at least I can finnaly start working on some icon sets for my apps! :-D3
I always love trying something new, especially when it's Linux.
In this case, I'm installing Plasma Mobile on my phone to see how it handles.1
Took a whack at installing arch...
I failed. 😔
My rj-45 port is broken and i I couldn't figure out how to manually set a static ip, default gateway and dns for the wifi interface thru the terminal when installing.
Oh well. Maybe next time5
The worst is not being taken seriously when working on serious tasks...
Sure as an intern I don't get paid a lot, but that system I'm building has to work either way, you better fucking take that seriously....1
So my friend and I have been casually talking about developing some indie games. I, being the one who knows programming, tried convincing him to learn some code.
Me: Hey, did you read the books?
Him: What books?
Me internally: ‘ok, maybe he just used some of the online guides’
Me: How’s [code learning app]
Him: Oh! I downloaded that the other day!
Me: Oh cool! What’s your account name?
Him: oh, I downloaded it but never actually opened it
Me: Did you learn any programming?
Me: WELL THEN FUCKING LEARN IT!!!!!
We don’t really talk to much anymore.1
Been stuck for 3 days with web socket config on VPS and it turned out one of the libraries I use gets fucked when compiled to JS. Deadline this weekend. Oh well.1
When you find out the 960 EVO M.2 SSD you rush delivered isn't supported on your motherboard so you have to return it and rush deliver an 850 EVO instead.3
So yeah, we took a Cisco Certification exam 2 years ago in high school. If I didn't procrastinate to study, I might pass the certification. The requirement was 60%. I got 55.6% in that exam.3
Most interesting bug caused - created printer driver for vietnamese diacritical marks for old matrix printer without VN support by switching to graphics mode and plotting the dots and dashes. Print speed reduced about 200x and printer shook itself to pieces by rotating the cylinder back and forth. Oh well... Ended up buying two new laser printers instead.1
So I fucked something up on Friday (midday) without realizing it just so I would work overtime to fix my mess while my co-workers are playing ps4...
Oh well. Don't do anything major on Friday. Ever.1
Me: Ok lets focus on my games dev kit, just got the hang of UI using GML and things are going well...
Also me: Oh look, Udemy have some decent courses goig for $18 AUD... Guess im learning Xamarin and more of unity!1
OH, OKAY! that's what I should have do like 4 hours ago. Well, today I learned more of what can `replace` do in Golang modules.3
Architect: Oh hey Zaphod65, let me know when you're in. Some strangeness in [system], ta
Me: Already here actually [Archtect], what's up?
Architect: oh hi well let me do a little more digging. it may be in frontend
Why? Why do I *care* if you haven't even made sure it's my fault yet?!1
Got Sony Xperia 10 Plus today. I love it but apps are not optimized for 21:9 display yet and devRant isn't too so when loading it's smaller but oh well.7
Co-worker that is non-tech oriented:
"So what do BI developers do?"
"Well...." start simple then get uber complicated.
"Oh ok cool. Well my LAN isn't working, can you help me?"
Because of the amount of complaining I do at work concerning legacy php applications the HOD is trying to push for different technologies to use for backend services. We have met multiple times to discuss the proper way of handling the situation since there are a lot of very obvious things to consider regarding the push for a new tech stack. The typical names have come about, but my biggest issue will be training people for these stacks.
Testing environments with docker and so forth, push for CERTAIN applications to be more API centric and the use of better frontend frameworks that will remain standard for years to come(hard to bet on this one but I tend to orefer React) among other things are the topics of conversation.
Personally I would love to move the shop to something geared towards Golang, thing is, the lead dev is complaining about it saying that the training for a new language would just take time. After a couple of examples he is still not convinced.
I think its wrong of him to center himself on just PHP and JQUERY as the main development stack he uses and learning new things should be part of the job, I also have a case against the spaghetti code that results from just using vanilla php with no proper development practices(composer based systems, oop etc etc you get the gist)
In the end I am starting to think that it will become one of those "fuck off I am the boss" type of deal since I am going to be here after a long time and he has about 2 years before he medically retire.1
Self employment... Loved the freedom. But oh well, the country's shituation is going sideways, so I got employed in a shitty company for the steady income11
Had a phone interview sat in my car.
Don’t think it went well, could be wrong, but felt like i waffles too much
Oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained.1
The most annoying coworker I've had is one I still work with! He thinks he's a know-it-all but when ut comes to actually solving a problem, he can't think anywhere close to as innovatively as he portrays himself to be. -_- Oh well, some things you just cant help
Friend of mine during workshops yesterday:
F: "Shit, my copying is broken (ctrl c shortcut)"
Me: "stack overflow down and/or broken copy/paste - worst nightmare"
F: "oh it works again... For a moment there i was afraid im gonna loose my job..."
* I guess the comedy of situation doesn't translate well to rant, but still, it was funny *
I can't find a remote development job and here's Microsoft built a AI that can code. Well fuck you Microsoft, fix your fucken browsers. oh wait...Your AI again suck.
I think it's best I go back to the farm.4
I'm so used to watching all websites with the dev tools open, that when I finally close it, they all look skewed to the right and not centeret.
Oh well, that's just a part of the game I guess
Man i fucking love my current living situation. The people are so fucking nice here, my neighbours almost all go into the same school as me and are therefore technical versed/share the same interests. My School is super awesome due to some of the teachers, where you can learn so much. Really starting to have a passion fo programming although it takes up so much of my freetime, i nearly don't do anything else anymore but I want to learn as much as possible.
It's a super nice day even though I have to study maths all day but fuck it! That doesn't stress me!
And all it really boils down to is how you perceive problems and the like. Either you let it get to you or you don't. Now everyone have a nice day :)4
You must have seen the future - ready things but have you seen the future.
Well witness the future with Jio !!!
Magazines availability : March 2018
I mean : Oh yea !!!!1
Client: $importantThing is a go live feature now.
Me: Okay, but it would considerably postpone the release date.
Client: Oh well, then maybe after release. However, do $lessImportantThing for go live, no matter how long it takes.
I got the short straw and get the privilege of building our new website.
I really don't know PHP very well, but apparently everyone else says they know it less.
Yea! Holiday weekend. NOT!!!! :(5
There was a big concert event after work last night I couldn't go.
Noone is at work but me today....
and there is a ton of empty bottles in the cantina as well as quite some mess in a meeting room.
And noone has said they were taking the day off. oh well I'm going early then.2
When you meet up with the boss and accidentally commit to a difficult project...(face palm)..oh well the wine was good!1
I have been working for 3 days with less than 4 hours of sleep a day. I keep dreaming of conflicting layout constraints, failure in fetching data from FetchedResultsController, Xcode crashing in between (oh well). Never been more frustrated.6
You know why I know that Francois Chollet's Deep Learning with Python is a good book for beginners?
He takes the idea of A.I in the context of Machine Learning and Python, and makes people realize that we are not going to have big tiddy android girls from her till McCarthy knows when.
Well that sucks. One of my sole purposes behind getting to AI was to have me own Jarvis that could help me build 2B.
So far I've struggled with applying for software internships. Have been trying since last semester but most of them have either rejected me or ignored my application.
Oh well better to keep working on my own projects until I land something I guess! The most important part about being rejected is that you know you can get better!3
And so begins week 3 of 5 without full computer access. I'm able to do some research needed but I'm still very limited. The only programs I can use are IE11, and the three basic MS Office programs. Oh well... at least I'm still getting paid by the hour1
Java jdk 10 just came out, but I only just started moving my projects over to build under jdk 9.0.4.
Oh Java 11 is out in beta as well?
Version numbers mean nothing to me anymore.3
Who thought this was a good idea
oh well if they couldn't care to initialize the variable I GUESS WE'LL MAKE IT RANDOM
There is probably a reason for it... somewhere4
I'm currently developing a retro console powered by pico-8 that I'll be putting in front of the co-driver in my car :) Oh and I'll 3d print a handheld version as well.8
So they're working on a way to store data in DNA. That means next generation computer science students have biology as a core course!
How many fucking programmers does it take to build a fully functional human being.
One male and one female.4
Going to reasoncon vienna. My plane from japan will land the day b4 at 2100 and we get on the train at 0630 so ill be really tired but oh well. I really enjoy travelling to the other side of the world.11
Arghhh! Reactive programming took away all the fun, but oh well, we can be more lazy now. Functional programming just made a big come back this year.2
When you filed for a VL but you need to go to work on that day because you have a lot of work and testing to do. Sounds fun
I wish I could show y'all my fav youtuber, the dude's youtube name is Dross. He makes entertaining videos about horror, some of them are not legit at all, but still entertaining to watch. The issue is that they are in Spanish.
Embedded Qt project. Has to ship in a week. Has problems with touch events.
Trace it to a problem in Qt itself.
Bugtracker: "Fix version: Qt 5.8"
5.8 is currently alpha.
Well... I'm in apprenticeship, and the company I work for asked me to do insanely complicated algorithms about paid leaves and stuff (Oh and I'm in France so you get the mess about leaves). And I don't understand shit about that ! About TOIL ! I mean, I'm still in school goddammit ! Oh and I said to my boss : "Yeah, wow, that seems complicated to code" and he said : "Yup, have fun". So even him, knowing everything about that shit knows that it's hard af ! I'm currently dying of death and my brain is melting.
PS : Here's a rare gif of me reacting about what I need to code3
He basically abhorred me because i still have no idea why he abhorred me but honestly I'm glad he did. We never had to work together, but i once tried sparking a conversation thinking let's see maybe he is not all he shows... The conversation ended in 3 seconds... And he was acting all childish ... Oh well... Cheers everybody!
Sunday planned to Building a project VS family reunion long drive. No laptop at the moment. Beach later will just watch tutorials in my phone oh well 100 km long driving 😩
One good thing about being at a remote offline office with virtually no supervision or coworkers is long lunches. I left ~10mins ago, and if anyone calls (and no one will), I left just few minutes before they called.1
I fucking love 32bit boards in 3D printers. And when they are paired with TMC2208/9 oh god the perfect mix.
I just upgraded my printer. Cant say it was hard upgrade as EXP connectors were rotated but oh well.
When i got all shit working i launched a print and i was scared as moving the axis created weird sound. Nothing to worry about now. Just too tightened the X axis. Oh well. Then it was silent. And i mean silent.
Sure the fans were loud but some silent fans which are expensive AF as it seems and it will be perfect.
Not feeling well (plus cold office) but still extending time after work hours (OTY) because of a big task with a quick deadline (already have a short deadline set before the task was given to me)
Oh well. Grind, hustle and push!
Listening to this while working 👊 :
Seems to be I have dropped too many times my dear OP3.
I drop it daily and never learn not to put it on dangerous places and now finally it's giving up, well only camera, focus no longer works at all. Oh well I don't need that feature that much but I'm surprised that nothing else isn't broken yet.2
You know what I dont like? Platform specific propriety softwares...
Oh well, there is always a better open source alternative1
When a webshop stock owner gets mad when their stock quantities don't add up, because it magically doubled +1y ago, and has been corrected now due to physically missing products while collecting ...
Walking to work this morning I was thinking that being a web developer has a lot of future because everything is and will be online... I sit on my desk at the office and there is no internet...oh well... :/4
Yay! Let's go to this 'IT day' event with the whole company to do some mandatory epibrating the whole day. I have so much work to do... Oh well, they even pay me a lot to go there but it sucks anyways.
Why is it I just had an amazing idea for this project 2 days AFTER IT WAS FINISHED?
Oh well, time for a rewrite!
Fuck my life, my morning was very variable it went from "in 4 day's the DB server domain will expire and will be screwed" (was created by a collaborator before my time in the company and not is going dark) to "oh here is the server and there is even daily backups" so it ended well but it was a hell of a journey.
Django and whitespace never get along😂😂
I always end up putting whitespace where the shouldn't be😁
But oh well... Since I started doing django.. Life has gotten much easier...
Pardon my ignorance but is what I'm trying to do even possible?
I have a WordPress network and have domain mapping setup. So the original was domainA.com/map and the new is domainB.com. Is there a way for me to keep both the old sub directory and new domain without redirects.
If not oh well.7
Friday night : oh look at all these frameworks/package/tricks I heard about this week, time to test them !
Saturday night : well I guess I'll sleep better tomorrow...
Sunday night : fuck !
My concern only goes so far...
‘Wow! Two factor authentication is not main stream... Are you f*cking kidding me? And you own bitcoin!’
‘No, I have ripple.’
‘Oh, well, not bothered then.’
you presented your idea to the PM then thinks it's good then suddenly disagrees then gives you more work load... oh well1
Thought it had been a while since my last Arch redo. Now the fsck output is hundreds of pages long and I'm grateful for my backups, and all suspiciously occuring just seconds after a full upgrade. I guess hardware failure is a possibility, but the smart status on the drive says it's perfect and dozens of retrospective self tests didn't reveal any issues. RAM passed multiple tests as well. Oh well, not like I haven't reinstalled before.
Well just recorded my first ever tutorial and oh boy will I need to do a part 2 refresh!
Didn't go to well :-/3
Told my friends about this awesome app. It used to be my safe place earlier, but oh well... Kinda happy and sad about it at the same time. Hope they don't recognize my handle 😅1
Woke up today with the idea that I'm gonna make a website for myself now I'm a high school student and have 0 income so i thought ight well i will just use the github student developer pack .... oh wait my school blocks it ...... ight ill get a free .me domain from name cheap..... oh its blocked too ill try porkbun and get a free .design domain shit that offers over Ight ill try . Freenom ..........................................(15min of loading later) ......ERROR: cannot verify you are human
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Not today I guess
Can't get a fucken job cause i got school11
Me: Look boss i refactor application, now it is way faster then previous one.
Boss: Cool, but who wrote the previous code?
Me: OH! well me.
I work in a team that's predominately ASP.NET MVC when it comes to web development. We're merging with another government agency 's development and they're using Node.js.
So I figure that I should make an effort and learn Node.js as I've only had minimal exposure to it.
After five minutes discover that corporate proxy prevents access to npm. Oh well, never mind!4
When you just finished showering, scrolling through devRant... and suddenly water from your hair drops onto the screen, randomly tapping stuff and making everything unresponsive. Well, at least the battery is still.... oh wait no its empty. could this get any fucking worse.
Just installing Node.Js on my windows machine. I try to be loyal and show good faith in MS by using Edge. It fails, hangs or resets every fucking time. What a useless piece of shit browser.
Oh well, Chrome it is then....
I could almost swear, when Windows 10 is ready to install updates on my PC it starts slowing it down so i can restart it and then it can proceed installing them.🤔
but oh well...thats too far fetched1
I start my summer class tomorrow; Applied Probability and Statistics. I took a look inside the textbook for the class, and now I want to kill myself. Oh well, at least it's not Calculus 2.5
Death by a thousand mother flippin cuts. Oh well, it is FRI, have a cold one and some calamari or something. <- talking to myself there...but it will probably be nachos. it's FRI.
Finally decided to learn back C++ programming and trying to download CodeBlocks IDE from SourceForge.
SourceForge temporary offline.
I definitely switched branches but it still committed to master
Oh well... It's only a backup repository2
This is a PJ :
Teacher: What is 2 + 2?
Teacher: no.it's four
Teacher: What does it means??
Me: The pretty and well-mannered answer you give someone if they correct you.
Teacher: Oh! you are a good boy.2
Always fun when the thing you've been working on is definitely going to the dark corner of the projects that never get looked at again. Oh well, it was giving me a headache anyway. Can I do something useful now?1
"This is an easy task, call me when it's done"
5 months later
"well the test of senduser didn't pass"
Me: "this wasn't on the docu"
"oh, let me rewrite it"
I've spent two days of holiday to setup CircleCI. And I can't **believe** how hard they make such an essential service. I've uploaded 16 commits to Github just to fix the configuration. And what's the best part? It still doesn't work! The configuration reference is useless.
*looks at CircleCI*
Oh what's that? They're having a system slowdown? well, GOOD FOR ME... /s
Any time there is a meeting it is the worst.
Suddenly, there's a voice in my head that constantly says, "shut the fuck up!"
I want to let that voice out but that'd just be poor "soft skills."
When I sit down at look at code again the voice will go away.. Or will it?1
Jordan Castillo: Happy birthday sire.
Eddie: Thank you Maestro.
Jordan Castillo: 😊 How do you feel now that your life's code just ran past an age++?
*10 minutes later.
Jordan Castillo: Oh what? I didn't see your reply.
Jordan Castillo: You maybe forgot to echo it out.
Eddie: Oh well Jordan, I feel like an iteration I guess.2
