Search - "pulp"
I want a name and a gun.
I've had my laptop for over 3 years now. Never, in these 3 years, have I installed Microsoft Teams on it.
I just turned my laptop on, and I now have the Ms Teams icon on my desktop, and Teams has started itself and is asking me to log in.
Control panel says it has been installed today.
I want somebody's head. And then smash it into a pulp with my bare hands and shove that up their ass.56
New "dev" at our company. One of his first questions. "Could an if clause have two conditions?"... /me *facepalm* ... where did my boss find this Person and what did he told him?4
Considering destroying my 3 year old car with a sledge hammer. Only 40k miles on it and it’s the worst I’ve ever owned. I’ve driven it more tenderly than you could believe and it’s on its third transmission. Fucked up as hell. All of my other cars I drove to 300k miles on the original transmission. It isn’t me folks. Pissed off. Somebody calm me down before I pound a small fortune into a pulp.12
1. There is nothing in this field that is impossible or out of reach for someone with the correct dedication and perseverance. Even if you suck at a particular topic, I highly believe that you can make sense of it through computer science, be it math, biology physics, finances etc. The field opens the doors to other subjects. This is true for everything else, but I seriously believe that Comp Sci makes it more reachable.
2. You cannot make development a quirky personality trait. There is more to life than just sitting around all day fucking with a computer, but at the same time that is how you hone your skills, find balance!
3. Being attractive and or charismatic in this field pays a lot, but also makes you a target.
4. I have never met more people in my life I wanted to punch to a pulp, and I worked in retail and was in the military....that says a lot.
5. Penises, there are way too many penises in this field. I hate being surrounded by dudes and since I grew up in a nail/hair salon I am more used/enjoy female company more.
6. Stuxnet se la come.10
I used to read.. A lot. Long and complicated stories, where the plot would only unveil itself after a long time. I used to dig myself into a book, learning about the writer's thoughts and mental image, reflecting on our differing viewpoints on the question at hand. I didn't expect action or beauty, merely thoughts which, by themselves, constitued a value to me.
But pulp and especially social media had lowered my attention span to the point that even reading through a short story without getting sidetracked takes a lot of effort. I still value what I used to value, the only thing that's changed is that I no longer have the patience and I feel discomfort due to the lack of sensations.
What do I do? Had anyone solved this problem before?4
My college wants me to submit my final project.... On a compact disk!
Yes, I'm sitting here facepalming myself to a pulp.
Like what the actual fuck, those things died six years ago! The last time I burned a cd was probably when I was in 9th grade and had a potato for a computer.8
New dev at our company. After two weeks he has finished a feature for a project. Want to merge it into the dev branch ... he worked in the master branch.2
Another chapter of my nano-drone love-hate story. Deployment using the old pipeline, but with new augmentations. Next week hopefully, we will deploy a better version with the new pipeline :)
My kick-ass merch from JapanCon Brussels (Nov 2018): a Yoda doormat, TallGeese Gundam Wing model, Pulp fiction displate, AND in front of it A 3D-PRINTED PICKLE RICK OMG CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!!! xD3
Best co-worker i have had was a 25 old guy with narcolepsy. He fall asleep every hour for about 10 minutes.
"The path of the righteous dev is beset on all sides by the inabilities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil devs.
Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, comments the lines through the codebase of the darkness.
For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost knowledge.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my repositories. And you will know I am the Lead when I lay my vengeance upon you."
So finally all bugs were fixed in the drone code, and we get a nice test score on the gvsoc. I got wrinkles from this intense debugging process.
Next step, testing on the hardware.
