Finally bought a smart watch! I can now be even less productive! (petition to make devRant smartwatch compatible) 😂13
Adobe will end-of-life Flash by 2020, and all big Browsers are joining this by disabling Flash features slowly
Let's make a petition to end-of-life Electron, it is basically Flash for Desktops and it is A RESOURCE-HUNGRY LAZINESS-PROMOTING PIECE OF SHIT THAT SHOULD IMMEDIATELY BE REMOVED FROM THIS VERY PLAnet.. what do you think about that particular idea?
I signed a petition on Action Network urging Congress to reject the dangerous EARN IT Act and protect our online free speech.
The Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies Act of 2019 — also known as the EARN IT Act — gives Attorney General Willliam Barr the power to demand that tech companies kill important encryption programs. That puts us all at risk of government censorship, cybersecurity breaches, and human rights abuses.
Don’t let Congress chip away at your essential freedoms online. Sign our petition now to tell your lawmakers to reject the dangerous EARN IT Act: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions...
Keep your fucking petition and readme only shit to yourself or those fucking petition websites, that everybody uses to fucking wipe their ass with, you fucking limp dicked piece of skunk shit
I am already fucking blocking all sorts of media not to hear about all your whiney fucking crap, now I have to also fucking endure your brainless fucking justice warrior bullshit all over github, all over rss feeds, all over fucking everywhere
go fucking get smoked by a car or go fucking overdose, for all I care, just fucking smear yourself all over a fucking wall, as long as you keep your fucking worthless opinion away from me
the fucking worst of it all is that every fucking shithead out there puts it up your face, even if you blocked a million of those fucking clones, then somebody that you follow or a website you visit, will fucking shove that shit in your face, github is not for your fucking propaganda18
I went to flwater.com and it is not a website about Florida's water.
It redirects to this change.org petition? It's incredibly strange. NSFW banner btw.21
After getting stuck in the shower this morning; I am starting a petition to get shampoo manufacturers to wrap their instructions in a do-while loop. Telling a developer to "lather, rinse, repeat" is a recipe for disaster...1
Fucking google not only that it knows everything about you but now they want to ruin one good thing they made: Android.
In Android P Dev preview 1 they locked the ability to add custom overlays.
That means no more substratum.
That's fucked up.
Google I hated you but believe me now I hate you even more.
I signed the petition and YOU should too if you care about Substratum.11
Been really depressed at work for the last two years. To the point where myself and colleagues would constantly petition our boss to work with us to change our internal process.
After being constantly ignored / seeing no really impact ( he literally renamed a step in our process and said he fixed it forgoing all the recommendations that we suggested and refusing to discuss anything with us );
I decided to resign before I say or do anything to completely burn the bridge.
Two days later one of my colleagues also resigned ( the only other device at the company ) now my boss is frantically looking for our replacements while also trying to maintain that he holds all the cards.. he offered my colleague less than he is on now to freelance for him. And will likely attempt the same with me in my exit interview today.
But I'm working on a web app which I find interesting. Problem is that I'm not as hopeful as the others working on it with me that it will ever make any money. (It seems like a money pit if anything)
I think I may be in for a couple of rough months. But at least I'm not working for a company that made me so depressed that all I would ever think about is how to convince the boss to improve things.
I'm worried but for the first time in 2 years I feel happy.4
Petition for devrant to start using iso dates. Or at least pick up the format from the device's locale. But preferably iso. Seeing m/d/y does my head in.30
@dfox please make avatar like the attached one, as for the moment I can't decide what to shave - my beard or my moustache 😉14
A friend of mine and fellow Dev is facing deportation back to Mosul, Iraq. He's in Sheffield UK doing his PhD, and was taken to a detention centre in the early hours of the morning a few days ago.
I am sorry to spam this place but I am desperately trying to get this petition out there. It hurts like hell to see a friend in jail over Christmas.
I feel like starting a petition to add `socks and sandles` under the shoes section when creating the avatar of dR profile so that it perfectly matches up with my name.2
Reposting this rant for more visibility. I do not like to repost, but this is really important, people's privacy is threatened.
Wondering how on earth the article 50 petition went down today. Someone must have been playing with loadtest!
In case you haven't heard:
Heh... Talk about making a lot of dev enemies...
Am I allowed to do this?9
Part 1: 2h including testing
Part 2: 2h-2days-maybe never (small changes on horrifically fucked up project noone understands with tons of tech debt)
Managed to pull off the part two in one day.. //yay me?!
Additional day to unfuckup git fuckups (including but not limited to master head not compiling because a smartass included *.cs in .gitignore file which he also pushed..don't ask, I have no clue why..) which was a huuuge deal for me as I usually use only local repo and had no idea how to tackle this.. coworker helped out.. seems I was on the right way, but git push branchy was acting up & said I had to login & ofc I had no clue what the pass was set to (first setup was more than 2yrs ago)..so new key, new pass.. all good.. yay!
Back to the original story/rant: Now I'm stuck with writing jira explanation why it was done this way & not the way customer suggested. They offered only vague description anyways which would require me to do a hacky messy thing, ew.. + it most probably would require major data modifications after deployment to even make it work..
Anyhow, this expanation is also easy peasy in english..
I must write it in my native tongue.. o.O FML! Spent almost 40mins on one paragraph..
Sooo.. if anyone will petition to ban non english in IT, I'm all for it!!2
I wanted to make a nice app with the developers API from pastebin.com
WHERE IS THE EDIT OPTION?
p.s. even started a petition, Help me out!
Forbes study https://lnkd.in/f4GDPnf shows that there has been a drastic reduction in pollution levels in China during the lockdown period due to Coronavirus outbreak.
I think it can be a pretty good idea to lockdown the world periodically to heal the planet. Here's a petition for the same. If you support the cause, please sign and share at http://chng.it/pxVMSKrmv610
A big fuck you to Maria Ruiz. He/She wants PewDiePie removed from YT because the New Zealand shooter said subscribe to him and other stupid reasons which Pewds has clarified as satirical.
And the 68k+ brainless entities who signed the petition as well on change.org5
ATTENTION UK NATIONALS:
We need your help to protect the peace in Northern Ireland, please sign this petition to demonstrate against the governments attempts to block MP’s from stopping a no deal Brexit which could (and some have argued already has started to) result in a ramping up to terrorist actions by the NIRA, RIRA, UVF, UDA and other groups -
If you don't count meals/toilet breaks/shower then my record would be 15 hours straight (08:00-ish to midnight 24hr clock) for a crap-tier black-white Nonogram/Picross generator that outputs near unsolvable grids because I know sh[BLEEP] on the games' generation algorithm. Yey /s. Petition to open /r/shittyprograms in parallel to /r/shittyrobots to celebrate how shitty my piece of a generator is.
petition to bad anyone to posts a tik tok on devRant
i feel like it's almost inevitably going to happen. please god no5
I've always had this in the back of my head, and off lately it's eating me alive.
Why don't we just rename python3 to python and Python to python2?
no I'm not gonna alias it in my shell. I'm talking about renaming them in all the distros.
there've been talks about renaming python3 to python and marking it as the default for quite long, but nothing has come of it yet.
I get that a lot of shit is gonna go down if this happens rn, systems breaking, migrations, panic, a lot of systems still working on python2 but we need to migrate.
we've also been hearing a lot of speculation about "Python 4", from earlier this year.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UGHHHH
pls revolution now7
Is anyone else getting a little irrated at the whole Microsoft/ICE thing?
Apparently there's now a petition amonst developers who say they'll leave GitHub if MS doesn't drop the contract: https://github.com/selfagency/...
Now, my question is...why? I understand the humane concerns with the decision, but dozens of other companies have worked and still work with ICE with no controversy. But once Microsoft signs it, everyone loses it... :/7
