Colleague was doing something with a switch, wasn't working, he went to get another one:
C: hmm, this one isn't working, I'm gonna get another one.
Me: so you're gonna SWITCH them?
Lost the password to the main modem/router of our apartment (live in a normal flat of which the rooms are rented out to three students and me) which is in my room and tried to reset the fucker for a trillion times but couldn't get back in, the password didn't reset.
Took a closer look at the reset button and suddenly noticed some text under it saying "wireless connect". Then I noticed a tiny round "hole" above the reset text.
Fuck my sideways, I've been pressing the "wireless connect" button instead of the actual reset one every goddamn time 😐
I can now port forward again 😊6
How do you call it when production breaks and a programmer has find out what went wrong/fix it as soon as possible while the client is breathing down their neck?
He's going through a rough patch.15
Alright, the blog seems to be running again and its not breaking yet which is a good sign :P.
Although nothing has changed on the front end yet, the backend has been partly rewritten to be more efficient and of course, post sorting based on posting date!
I'm aware of most of the front end issues so no need to tell me all of them again, I'll look at that tomorrow as I need sleep right now :(
If you'd find any bugs/security issues, please, don't exploit them but report them instead! I take security very seriously and will try to patch any security bug as soon as I can :)13
That moment that you come across a domain name which you thought would have definitely been taken already.
Came across strtoti.me. (php function for converting date/time strings into unix epoch's). Quickly wrote an api for it and put it online because fuck it, why not!
Feel free to use it as much as you want, I can't guarantee its availability unless it would become really popular but I can't imagine that.
API example: https://strtoti.me//... 20 20:15
API example (url encoded): https://strtoti.me//...
API documentation (not that good yet, might improve it..): https://strtoti.me
Well, let's see how this goes. Feedback appreciated but I currently have a shitload of projects to it doesn't have the highest priority right now!12
Because the RSS feed is still down, hereby.
The post about what I personally take for security and privacy measures is up.
Hopefully you can learn something from it or even email me some tips!3
Ohai, a few devRanters (including me) have been working on planning a Dutch devRant meetup once again.
Although we're quite late with the "announcement", hereby!
It'll happen upcoming Saturday in Nijmegen (at least one German living person is coming as well and some people wanted to see it anyways so that's why).
Here's a collab edit thingy where you can put your name if you're coming!:
http://collabedit.com/wmj25 (yes, no https, I'm aware, I didn't chose this one but for now it works)
I'll mention some dutchies in the comments :)
Looking forward to upcoming Saturday :D49
Building on my last rant, a friend told me that resizing the partition caused the blocks to be no longer aligned, whatever tf that meant. So i adjusted the partition table and reboo—-
Grub: OHAI THERE, DO YOU KNOW HOW TO USE A GRUB RECOVERY SHELL? NO? WELL FUCK YOU BECAUSE HELP ISNT A VALID COMMAND HERE. FIGURE. IT. OUT.10

Intern: *writes text-color: 'white'* Hey, I'm trying to apply this color, but it doesn't work.
Me: Remove the "text-" from it.
*Removes "-" and makes it camel case.*
Me: No, it should just be "color".
Intern: Okay, that works. Thanks.
It's been 172 days (since my last post)10
Ohai devrant :D
I've been wanting to learn Ruby (specifically, Rails). Can any of you recommend a good learning resource for someone coming from a front-end / ReactJS background ?6
