Reading devRant feed is so fucking hard nowadays. Every other rant is about Windows rebooting, Google being evil, Quantum beating Chrome, M$ users being cunts and all these fanboy shits.
Fucking hell. Write some actual code and rant about some solid problems rather than being a stupid fanboy.12
Developer Says: We have trained a model to automatically categorize user posts.
Sales Department Says: We are building a decentralized peer to peer blockchain neural network based on a scalable containerized cloud of quantum computers to power internet of things devices in augmented reality while users get driven around in autonomous vehicles powered by machine learning and pay for renewable energy with cryptocurrencies.8
Why did the chicken cross the road?
Assembler Chicken: First, it builds the road ......
C Chicken: It crosses the road without looking both ways.
C++ Chicken: The chicken wouldn't have to cross the road, you' d simply refer to him on the other side.
COBOL Chicken: 0001-CHICKEN-CROSSING.
THEN PERFORM 0010-CROSS-THE-ROAD
VARYING STEPS FROM 1 BY 1 UNTIL
GO TO 0001-CHICKEN-CROSSING
Cray Chicken: Crosses faster than any other chicken, but if you don't dip it in liquid nitrogen first, it arrives on the other side frazzled.
Delphi Chicken: The chicken is dragged across the road and dropped on the other side.
Gopher Chicken: Tried to run but got beaten by the Web chicken.
Intel Pentium Chicken: The chicken crossed 4.9999978 times.
Iomega Chicken: The chicken should have ' backed up' before crossing.
Java Chicken: If your road needs to be crossed by a chicken, then the server will download one to the other side. (Of course, those are chicklets.) See also WMI Monitor.
Linux Chicken: Don't you *dare* try to cross the road the same way we do!
Mac Chicken: No reasonable chicken owner would want a chicken to cross the road, so there's no way to tell it how to cross the road.
Newton Chicken: Can't cluck, can't fly, and can't lay eggs, but you can carry it across the road in your pocket.
OOP Chicken: It doesn't need to cross the road, it just sends a message.
OS/2 Chicken: It crossed the road in style years ago, but it was so quiet that nobody noticed.
Microsoft's Chicken: It's already on both sides of the road. What's more its just bought the road.
Windows 95 Chicken: You see different coloured feathers while it crosses, but when you cook it still tastes like........ chicken.
Quantum Logic Chicken: The chicken is distributed probabilistically on all sides of the road until you observe it on the side of your choice.
VB Chicken: USHighways! <TheRoad.cross> (aChicken)
XP Chicken Jumps out onto the road, turns right, and just keeps on running.
The Longhorn Chicken had an identity crisis and is now calling itself Vista.
The Vista Chicken dazzled itself with its own graphics.19
Although there's been a lot of rants on Firefox Quantum, I'm going to add my experience anyways.
Just downloaded it on my laptop and netbook.
Motherfucker this thing is fast. No lag, pages load very freaking fast, consumes less ram than before and I fucking love the new interface!
Mozilla, you did a hell of a job!28
Step-dad : "Chrome is good"
Me : "Yeah but Firefox Quantum :/"
Step-dad : "That's a virus"
If the Firefox Quantum is really good then you don't need to say:
"Chrome will become obsolete"
"I hope Chrome dies"
"Chrome's dead, long live Firefox"
to prove that it's a great browser. Fanboys always ruins nice experiences.14
I counted 42 rants about Firefox Quantum posted in the last 24 hours (of a total of 295)... are you ok, guys? 😅17
The quantum mechanics of math class:
Your awnsers are both correct and incorrect until the teacher marks them.4
We are transferring our infrastructure to Google cloud and Docker. Last week one of our frontend developers tell me:
But it works without Docker!15
"Dude, don’t you hate it when people say "well yes and no" like they are some kind of goddamn quantum computer or something?"6
To celebrate Quantum release, let's share your must have add-ons for your browser(s).
- ublock origin,
- error indicator
Screenshot and pocket are already included with Firefox and work great. Chrome needs extensions for those though. I used to have disconnect and ghostry in past.45
Following a conversation with a fellow devRanter this came to my mind ago, happened a year or two ago I think.
Was searching for an online note taking app which also provided open source end to end encryption.
After searching for a while I found something that looked alright (do not remember the URL/site too badly). They used pretty good open source JS crypto libraries so it seemed very good!
Then I noticed that the site itself did NOT ran SSL (putting the https:// in front of the site name resulted in site not found or something similar).
Went to the Q/A section because that's really weird.
Saw the answer to that question:
"Since the notes are end to end encrypted client side anyways, we don't see the point in adding SSL. It's secure enough this way".
I emailed them right away explaing that any party inbetween their server(s) and the browser could do anything with the request (includingt the cryptographic JS code) so they should start going onto SSL very very fast.
Too badly I never received a reply.
People, if you ever work with client side crypto, ALWAYS use SSL. Also with valid certs!
The NSA for example has this thing known as the 'Quantum Insert' attack which they can deploy worldwide which basically is an attack where they detect requests being made to servers and reply quickly with their own version of that code which is very probably backdoored.
This attack cannot be performed if you use SSL! (of course only if they don't have your private keys but lets assume that for now)
Luckily Fox-IT (formerly Dutch cyber security company) wrote a Snort (Intrustion Detection System) module for detecting this attack.
Anyways, Always use SSL if you do anything at all with crypto/sensitive data! Actually, always use it but at the very LEAST really do it when you process the mentioned above!31
I am sure that a lot of you have heard about the gap between poor and rich growing. You know that the amount of really poor people and the amount of really rich people is increasing and that the amount of people in between is decreasing. The gap between poor and rich is growing.
But this rant isn't about economy or anything, I think something similar is happening in the technology sector.
I think that the gap between people knowing close to nothing or just really the stuff to get along and people that really know a lot about it is growing. Right now there are so many things happening in technology, quantum computers and especially machine learning. While on the other hand there are so many people not caring or rather not knowing about all of this stuff. Now you might think that this only is true for some of the 'older generations', those that didn't grow up with all the technology. But I can say that today's youth isn't any better.
One of my classmates had to copy a file into a folder. They both were on the desktop. He clicked on the file and dragged it onto the folder. It was loading and after around 10 seconds it still wasn't finished, so he stopped it, moved the file closer to the folder and tried it again. This really happened and I am 99% sure that he was serious.
Now I don't know if this is just some 1am thought I had but I really think that the 'gap' between people with almost no technology knowledge / interest and people who are making the stuff and really know stuff about it is growing at an alarming rate.
3 billion devices may run java but there aren't 3 billion people who know Java.
Please let me hear your opinion about this :)18
Idk why everybody hates Electron. I mean its damn cool negative quantum particle that orbits nucleus of atom. But it doesn't orbit it normally its in superposition until you look at it so its cloud of probabilities where it can be.
Now tell me what is not cool about that ?11

This I met somebody on the train that is following the education for Quantum Physics.
After a bit of talk, I noticed he looked like he could be 24 and 50 at the same time...
Well that's some dedication10
I've been using Firefox Quantum before it was famous. It used to be called Firefox Developer Edition.11
Firefox Quantum is the only software in beta stage I know of, that is more stable than the release one. I have to admit that I am somewhat of a fanboy when it comes to Firefox since I have been using it for the past 12 years. I never admitted it's quirks even though I secretly knew chrome had a better performance and stability lately. This rebirth gives me so much hope! YES! Firefox is not dieing!8
I’m a .NET desktop fullstack dev these days… Never worked web unless for my own small needs/personal projects.
I started using tech one way or the other by the time windows was version 3.1 and been through quite a bit ground-breaking changes in the industry of software development and the internet but if there’s one thing I cannot understand of it all, no matter how much thought I put into it is: How the fuck did we manage to make it so fucking complicated to develop anything these days?
I remember like it was yesterday that you could stand a website with HTML, CSS and JS, three fucking files and you’ve made yourself a single page site. Then came the word “Responsive”, “Responsive” written everywhere. Fair enough, grid system popped up. All of the sudden jQuery was summoned… and everything that happened after this point has been a fucking circus of high-pitched teens talking on conferences about fucking libraries and frameworks to make integration with real time, highly scalable, eco-friendly, serverless, data driven, genome aware, genderless, quantum technologies to interact with bio dynamically generated organisms, namely fucking users.
Every fucking bit of the process of building a mobile/web application seems to be stopped by yet another incredibly dumb attempt to suicide a developer. Can you go from starting an app and publishing an app without jumping through a thousand VERY specific hoops? No, fuck no.
I fucking hate it… It’s a bit hard to get Desktop dev jobs these days but for as long as I work on IT I will continue to stick to that area, until someone for the love of life comes up with a fucking solution to all this decadent circus of bureaucratic technocracy.
While everyone else is talking about Firefox quantum, I'm here wishing there was a visual overhaul to Thunderbird because right now it looks like shit.18
I tried the beta version of Mozilla Firefox Browser.
I opened 10 sites which consists of social media, email and youtube. And I found out it consumes less RAM resources than Google Chrome. Not bad Mozilla.
Here is an article about it: https://thenextweb.com/tech/2017/...26
why the fuck do people on here like firefox quantum:
- windows: works, does its job well, but fuck it!
- php: works, does its job well, but fuck it!
- wordpress: kinda does its job, but fuck it!
- firefox quantum: works, does its job well, but ❤️ it14
oh it’s a little bit old ...
now everything is firefox quantum! the best browser ever
download firefox quantum is your purpose :)))6
“There’s too many Firefox quantum rants...”
Lemme let you in on a little secret:
It’s nothing new, get over it.
Apple released a new phone.
Samsung or Google releases a phone.
Do any of you see a common theme? It’s the same people posting three metric fuck tons of posts about recent news. Wow, a tech person sharing tech news, imagine that. It’s just a phase, we all notice it. It’ll go away. Thanks. Have a nice day.13

I'm afraid that the wanketeers got a hold of this one.. as if I care how fast or slow your browser is, as long as it isn't completely shit like pre-Quantum Firefox used to be! And does it even make the slightest bit of sense when there's nice and snappy websites like the motherfucking websites, but a shitload of shitsites that load several dozens of frameworks, because long live Web 2.0. 22% faster, ON WHAT?!14
Why do so many people waste their time and their computers turning coal into heat? It really pisses me off.
Often I meet smart guys who are fairly decent coders and after what starts as an interesting conversation is instantly destroyed by cryptocurrency.
It is *exactly* like enjoying a discussion of the intriguing nuances of quantum chemistry only to have the guy say, "thats all cool, but how do you make meth?"
You want to use your decked out rig to make money? Fine. But please help us solve important problems instead of literally wasting electricity. Just google search "supercomputer physics" and you will find a thousand current problems requiring extremely fast computers for number crunching. All of them can make you more money than crypto and all of them help society at the same time.
We burn coal to make most of the electricity on this planet. Most coal stations burn around 20,000 tons of coal per day. The world burns about 250 tons of coal every *second*. This is converted into carbon dioxide. (coal = carbon, add two oxygens when you burn it, producing three times as much mass in CO2, which then goes out the smoke stack)
The big picture is this: currently we are forced to burn coal to make the world work. Turning off the boilers would result in an almost instant apocalyptic collapse of society. BUT, we don't need to burn it merely to produce waste heat in your video card array.
Please use your superpowers for good.
Firefox Quantum is amazing! I really like it... Except for the square tabs... They aren't aesthetically pleasing.14
So... I've seen my dad talking a lot about quantum computers, and it's getting quite embarrassing to be there when he talks about them. He doesn't understand shit about them, except that they somehow use quantum mechanics for something.
Last week my uncle from Spain visited us. He's a Cristian pastor, and a cool guy, so they always talk about god and similar themes. We gathered the family to have a dinner with my uncle as he only was going to be one day with us. This is how part of the dinner went by:
" so, <Uncle's name>, have you heard about quantum computers?"
me thinking:*Oh my God. Please not again... *
"The nasa, the US government and all kinds of powerful entities are getting the quantum computer."
He always talks about THE quantum computer as if it was just one big machine.
"They have found that multiple universes exist through it. If this is what they are telling us, imagine how far they've gone. Remember that technology is always 8 years ahead of actual public technology."
Me:*please dad, stop. Who the fuck is made that claim and how many fucking years ago?*
"Did you know that many people remember that Mandela died in prison, while in the oficial version, he died after it? They must be messing with multiple universes, or multiple timelines are getting intertwined."
Me: *please, not the mandela effect again*
Then my dad procceded to talk about multiverses and how THE quantum computer was the future and about some parts of the Bible that supported it. Bizarre, I know.
When we are alone, I always try to tell him how things actually work but he always twists my claims to support his. Last time I told him that the mandela effect was perfectly explainable by psychological phenomena around forgotten memories. But this is going to far... Fuck the guys that made zeitgeist. Fuck Alex Jones. Fuck random youtube conspiracy channels. They make technology look like fucking magic for muggles.10
We live in a society in which quantum computers exist, and yet I still have to r set my router constantly just to keep connected to the internet. Weren’t we supposed to have flying cars by now too?7
Just started playing with Microsoft's Quantum Computing Kit and it's so amazing 😍!
Well done Microsoft!25
Imagine if you will, a fictional world outside our own.
In this world, the requirement for getting a drivers licenses is 4 years of research into quantum mechanics.
- Was it interesting? Yeah.
- Did I learn it because I had to? Yup.
- Will I use the harmonic oscillation calculations of a particle when driving my car. Fuck no!
- Did it cost me an ungodly amount of money? It sure did!
- Will some dumb people still say it was useful because it is the minimum (fictional) barrier to entry for driving a car. You bet your sweet ass they will!!!
It was about as useful as any made up requirement, make-work, self-funding, circle-jerking, waste or time and money to feed the pockets of people who are too scared to do actual work so they teach, can be.
I paid all that money to be taught technology that was old when my mother was in school.
In the first year out of school, with only a $300 subscription to PluralSight some uDemy courses and hard work, I learned 100X as much as everything they put in front of me in school.
School has its place.
Children who don't understand the importance of learning and need their hand help.
Adult children (some of which on on their 3rd or 4th degree) who also need their hand held.
People too afraid to enter the real world.
I would do it again because it is the minimum requirement of entry, but thats nothing more than a bullshit make-work project.
Play their game as long as you need to. Keep your own game in mind. Don't drink the koolaid, just fake a sip. Then when the time is right, play by your own rules.
Trying to learn some golang after a break.
Made http / https transparent proxy for personal project.
Mind: You need to add configuration file with domains you allow traffic and block everything else using list of regex.
Me: Ok I can do it, 4 hours later ok done
Mind: Why not make it differently by making list of url you can block and test this shit on fucking ads and stop using adblock that downloads content.
Me: ok that will be handy I can watch websites faster and drop traffic I don’t want to.
Funny fact, it works I broke analytics, logging, quantum shit fucks and even youtube plays ok.
Go is awesome for networking stuff lol.12
I fucking hate this country. I hate this place. I hate these people.
I have to wait for seconds for chrome to even show up, I can't browse shit. VS Code fucks it up like I'm tryna solve some quantum formulas but in reality IT JUST HAVE TO OPEN A FUCKIN PROJECT FOLDER.
I hate the fact that I need to work for months to afford a decent computer, MBP or XPS isn't even a dream for me.
Wanna buy a XPS? Good. Now work for 10 months even without spending a dime. MBP? It just become 20.
Why did I have to be born in this fucking shithole part of the world? I could've just born dead, that would be less painful.17
Like u know how CPUs rely on basics of subatomic physics? So right now, in 2018, the biggest use of quantum mechanics is porn. Just think about that.2
Fucking news articles like wtf if they don't have a buzzword in the title they will never be published.
This Forbes articles talks about googles quantum computer and hotw it could break Bitcoin. FUCKING BITCOIN like who TF cares maybe you should talk about how it would break the ENTIRE FUCKING INTERNET.8
TL; DR: Bringing up quantum computing is going to be the next catchall for everything and I'm already fucking sick of it.
Actual convo i had:
"You should really secure your AWS instance."
"Isnt my SSH key alone a good enough barrier?"
"There are hundreds of thousands of incidents where people either get hacked or commit it to github."
"Well i wont"
"Just start using IP/CIDR based filtering, or i will take your instance down."
"But SSH keys are going to be useless in a couple years due to QUANTUM FUCKING COMPUTING, so why wouldnt IP spoofing get even better?"
"Listen motherfucker, i may actually kill you, because today i dont have time for this. The whole point of IP-based security is that you cant look on Shodan for machines with open SSH ports. You want to talk about quantum computing??!! Lets fucking roll motherfucker. I dont think it will be in the next thousand years that we will even come close to fault-tolerant quantum computing.
And even if it did, there have been vulnerabilities in SSH before. How often do you update your instance? I can see the uptime is 395 days, so probably not fucking often! I bet you "dont have anything important anyways" on there! No stored passwords, no stored keys, no nothing, right (she absolutely did)? If you actually think I'm going to back down on this when i sit in the same room as the dude with the root keys to our account, you can kindly take your keyboard and shove it up your ass.
Christ, I bet that the reason you like quantum computing so much is because then you'll be able to get your deepfakes of miley cyrus easier you perv."10
We do quantum development at work. Hence no testing nobody knows if the application is working after the deployment. 😶4
I hate it when you are enrolled in a college for a cse degree but they decide to teach you quantum mechanics and environmental sciences cause you never know, may need them someday. However in the name of cse they teach you what was magnetic optical drive and about mice and printers cause as a cse student you should know how the mouse, the keyboard, printers work. How is electricity that powers your tools is generated? How much energy is generated or required to display the colour on you monitor? And programming, well thats what the company train you in after recruitment!!5
I hate it when marketing people decide they're technical - quote from a conference talk I regrettably sat through:
"The fourth industrial revolution is here, and you need to make sure you invest in every aspect of it - otherwise you'll be left in the dust by companies that are adopting big data, blockchain, quantum computing, nanotech, 3D printing and the internet of things."
Alright, I have no idea who to blame!
Me and my Linux group at college hosted a Firefox Quantum Sprint with about 30people. And we promised them Firefox swag coz Mozilla promised us! Its been more than two fuckin weeks since we were supposed to recieve them... no swag!
Well, guess what? The local post office says "Insufficient Reciever Address". I specifically remember giving u morons More than sufficient sender address! My name, college name, college address, my number... thats enough to get me assasinated if u want and u cant send a package of stickers?!!!
Well shit.. after five more emails I havent even gotten a reply from Mozilla.. or maybe its the weekends... fuck! Why am i defending these assholes?!!
Send me ur swag Mozilla! Or I ll... I ll...
Wait.. i cant do shit!
Fuck my life! 😣😣😣1
2 things I'm working on now:
#1 a personal project I am hoping to commercialize and turn it into my moneymaker. Hoping it'd at least be enough to pay the bills and put food on my table so I could forget 9/5 for good. But it has a potential of becoming a much, MUCH bigger thing. This would need the right twist tho, and I'm not sure if I am "the right twister" :) We'll see.
#2 smth I'm thinking of opensourcing once finished -- a new form of TLS. This model could be unbreakable by even quantum computing once it's mature enough to crack conventional TLS. I'm probably gonna use md5 or smth even weakier - I'm leveraging the weakness of hashing functions to make my tool stronger :)
I mean how long can we be racing with more powerful computers, eh? Why not use our weakneses to make them our strengths?
Unittests are already passing, I just haven't polished all the corner-cases and haven't worked out a small piece of the initialization process yet. But it's very close6
Firefox Quantum! So fast, so great, amazing, the best.
Open with 2 tabs, Slack and YouTube homepage). Whats been rewritten exactly?8
I just love how liferay keeps finding ways to surprise me...
Customer: need to fix this security issue
me: fixed. Testing locally. Works 100%.
Me: testing on dev server. Works 100%
qa: testing on dev server. Works 100%
me: all good. Deploying to preprod
customer: it doesn't work
me: testing preprod - it doesn't work.
Me: scp whole app to local machine. App works 100%.
Me: preview loaded liferay properties in preprod via liferay adm panel. All props loaded ok.
Me: attach jdb to preprod's liferay to see what props are loaded. Only defaults are used [custom props not loaded according to jdb]
me: is there some quantum mechanics involved..? Liferay managed to both load and not to load props at the same time and the state only changes as it's observed...2
I’m really shocked at myself but as a last resort I chose Lubuntu for a light live USB environment because all others kept fucking out or lagging etc but holy shit I’m really digging Lubuntu!
Got a sweet conky setup started, Firefox quantum, some tweaks, my basic software stack and I’m almost good as gold!
Lubuntu for the recommendation! 👌🏼😁1
How to get investors wet:
“My latest project utilizes the microservices architecture and is a mobile first, artificially intelligent blockchain making use of quantum computing, serverless architecture and uses coding and algorithms with big data. also devOps, continuous integration, IoT, Cybersecurity and Virtual Reality”
Doesn’t even need to make sense12
After seeing so many posts about Firefox quantum using so much RAM. I can say this
"Firefox quantum is new Google chrome"4
I will die younger because of node packages
It's like quantum mechanics, so undeterministic, even with yarn.lock, I had this meeting to demo software and I was ready for 2 min past the meeting time, having worked nearly all night to save monorepo yarn workspaces issues where some module has peer dependency it shouldn't have and some other module installed a newer version of a package which broke another module with another version of the same package, one module checks if it's got an instanceof another package, but it returns false because it's another version of the same package that created it so X !== X.
I nearly had a nervous breakdown and my node modules won't fix when I remove all node_modules in the yarn+lerna monorepo and reinstall from scratch... it's like seeing ghosts with these errors all works for months and then a butterfly splashes its wings near 1 node module and the entire app fails apart.
Watching a TV series, where somebody stole a "quantum processor" that can "break every binary code".
Why dont they fuck up so much with all the other sciences? I mean, its 2019, ppl should know that thats b$!.
They never steal a perpetuum mobile, or a time machine? Or the complete PI constant, Nooho sir! They always steal some IT thingy that's not existing or makes no sense!20
Project Cortana: Day 56
*What I disliked*
Here is the rant where I described the project: https://devrant.io/rants/962190
Where do I start:
1. Skype: Horseshit. Fucking disgrace to chatting apps. Their mobile app feels like someone accidentally shat on android studio and uploaded in play store. Fucking garbage.
But, the desktop app on the other hand is great. Works well but uses a lot of CPU.
2. Edge: The mobile version is great, can't say the same for desktop version. It's definitely a bit slower than Chrome or Quantum. Lack of extensions never bothered me as the most important ones like uBlock, Ghostery and Lastpass is available.
3. Bing: Fuck that useless piece of shit.
4. OneNote: If you could wrap dogshit in a beautiful looking wrapping paper, you would get something similar to OneNote. The desktop app is almost non-fucntional but it is indeed very nice looking.
5. Promotional Apps: Fuck off Micro$oft. As mentioned by others, you get some shitty fucking games pre installed when you install Windows 10. Not only that, in the first couple of hours, it tried to install some further games while it's downloading updates. That is just horrible.
Everthing else was fine so far. The updates never bothered me. I got the "Restart" notification twice and I was able to change the time. It never forced anything on me.10
I installed the Firefox update before I left the house and now I am on my way back, filled with fear and excitememt, not knowing wtf everyone is so mad about/amazed by.10
My boss has been begging me migrate a nightmarish complex excel report he made to calculate the payout of a tiered rebates program with compounding rewards. Today I finally decided to make take the time and I sat down with him so he could break it down for me...
Me: *looking at the mess of formula's* it would be easier to rewrite the math than decode this - can you just give me the reward rules... where does that value in cellX come from?
Him:*pointing at the spreadsheet* There! All the rules are in there for you :-)... like it's some big favour...
Me:No I mean when you wrote this, what did you base this off? There must be something...
Him: *Very Gravely* No, no, no it's far to complex! It took me ages to get this sheet right and it balances so just trust me and use it ok?
At this point I will mention he's an accountant so yeah I fucking trust him... fast forward past 15 minutes of digging through what may as well be quantum theory and lo and fucking behold all 2 sheets and 100 calculations are mathematically fucking pointless. Aside from formulas like this:
which is actually equal to (X10/R4)/L10.
Anyway once you compound and sum the "tiered" benefits the rewards payout is ALWAYS = customerSpend*1.81.
This is why programmers name variables.
So this week we had another team come to us and say they need to go into production...only issue...they have nothing...sorry that's wrong they have something...a vbs script to do their installation which doesn't work...
So I currently use Edge as my web browser (and DuckDuckGo as my search engine) because I avoid Google’s services when possible. I have heard several good comments about Firefox recently. Is it worth the switch?21
Before, when you bought $3k Cisco router you got the box that will run indefinitely as long as it has power in about any environment you can go to install it; with or without fans, it had more important business than to give a shit about such things.
Now, when you buy $500k Cisco box you get a over-engineered chassis with 5 separate fan modules with their own firmwares, self tests, watchdog timers and shitload of bugs. It's a fucking fan, it should spin, not do quantum chromodynamic simulations.
Next rant could probably be how Cisco's switch from monolithic to modular linux arhitecture (in order to reduce downtime) turned into having time bombs just waiting to do some crazy shit.2
Stranger Things Fan: Have you seen Stranger Things? It's really good. You NEEEEED to watch it. Now.
Firefox Quantum Fan: Have you used FireFox Quantum? It's safe, fast, and uses less RAM. I don't know why it has such a low market share. You neeeeeeeed to use it! NOW.5
Playing elite with quantum scientist and talking about a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot of science while she streams it.
Or if thats not enough then i guess calculating PI to 1000 digit by hand says something too.
Damn would love to do that again but well it took me 10+ hours.4
Guys unofficial devRant extension for firefox version 2.11 is out it now finally supports Firefox Quantum (Yayyyyy).
But i had to remove the notification feature.16
So I am helping coworker with debugging a weather forecast feature on a digital display solution we sell to hundreds of companies.
He says he just doesn't know why but the forecast data isn't correct.
I open up file where forecast data is stored and the data hasn't been updated in 6 months.
Thats when he realizes no one has paid the forecast service provider in 6 months...
And this guy is supposed to be senior to me?1
Cause firefox quantum stoped to support legacy extensions i need to make a new one in the new API i was trying to not do it since it still worked but seems like its time to really do it ahhhhhhhhhh i hate when i have to change the entire API.6
Hmmmm its almost new year im having finally holiday from school and all that stuff but still working on ROMs but well another story and i dont have a thing to rant about which i think is kinda good but sad at the same time.
So all i wanted to say to you guys that 2017 was an amazing year full of learning new stuff and trying, meeting some cool people.
I have done a lot of work this year.
Created a sort algo which well was already created but i didnt know that sadly.
Working on encryption algo (Still)
And lot more but thats not what the rant is about.
It was as i said above an amazing year and im sure we had a loooooooot of fun at devRant.
Some big changes happened this year at devRant mostly the web UI and livestream which was totally amazing.
Also a lot of thing happened here looooot of awesome things and i finally updated my fucking firefox extension for 57 standard (Yeah i was late on that one).
I surely would have said more but nothing comes up in my mind now only some quantum mechanics stuff but well thats not what the rant is about neither.
So Happy New Year to all of you guys and let the 2018 be more awesome then 2017;5
I just tried Quantum and Chrome at my school libraries computer (4GB RAM).
Both times I tried opening my website (only one tab) and besides Quantum not even showing my website but a white loading circle... Here are both RAM usages..22
There was a kid in my programming class that was convinced that in the next 10 years ai would become self aware and seek for the destruction of its creators.
I wasted 20 minutes of my life trying to explain down how ai sentience would have to be an intentional decision by the group creating the ai
Of course, he spun around and tried to explain how secret government organizations are already working on general intelligence that would run on quantum computers to shut down enemy governments.
Maybe with people willing to believe anything the world is doomed after all :/13
Everything will be about the same, but faster. Quantum computing will allow brick-shitting speeds of data processing, Nvidia will at some point develop a quantum GPU and call it Fuckall architecture or something that will allow to simulate all the atomic-level physics of a whole car (and stuff), 1Tb network speeds will be common, websites and databases work in a blink of an eye.
Also someone will find a spectre/meltdown-level vulnerability in quantum CPUs and everyone will get f-d in the a. Again. Almost.14
After seeing so many rants about firefox quantum, I decided to give it a try. And now I am stuck at this screen for more than an hour. Is it windows or firefox? Guess, I'll have to look for the full installer.12
Fucking shit for brains authors that think the digital world is a fantasy realm where everything can happen just to aid their story. Out of boredom i watched "scorpion" today, a tv series about a group of geniusses which are a special case task force.
They got a visitor from the government saying the servers from the federal reserve bank were encrypted with ransomware. I already twitched when they said the economic system would collapse if the servers were left inoperational for a few days. Then one guy got to his desk and "hacked" the fed network to check... he then tried to remove the malware but "it changed itself when observed". But they got the magical fingerprint of the device that uploaded it. In the end some non-programmers created the malware, but it is super fast and dangerous because it runs on a quantum computer which makes it hyper fast and dangerous. They got to the quantum computer which was a glowing cube inside another cube with lasers going into it and they had to use mirrors to divert the lasers to slow down that quantum thingy. And be careful with that, otherwise it explodes. In the end the anti-malware battled the malware and won, all in a matter of minutes.
This is a multimillion hollywood production. How can a movie this abusive to computer science even air on television? Shit like this is the reason people still think the cyberworld is some instable thing that can explode any second. It's not, it's an instable thing that can break down any second. I remember "ghost in the wires" and people had surreal imaginations about the internet already. Shit like this is why people stay dumb and think everything can be done in seconds. If i ever should encounter one of these idiots i tell him i have an app that can publish his browser history by taking a picture of his phone and watch his reaction.
Time to shuw down the tv and learn vim again.11
I normally just have nightmares about the projects I'm working on, especially when I struggle with a bug for days. Those are usually about just me stressing out about it. However, I have a lot of dreams about computers/technology, not necessarily coding-related:
- datacenters were just potato fields. If you go work the field, you'd go data mining
- in Biology, when being taught how having children works, you only tell that "parenting is only chmod-ing the rights of your children until they become the owners themselves"
- IP addresses with emojis instead of numbers were a standard now and they actually managed to replace IPv4, because everyone was so into emojis. They named it IPvE
- I witnessed a new Big Bang when the 32-bit Unix time overflown in 2038, and we were all quantum bits3
Ok guys, since what Im using is a laptop with some low specs since Im too broke to even afford a new FM2+ motherboard to repair my desktop pc and have a little more raw power to use and make more fancy stuff, I wish to know if anyone here legit is interested in some Original content images that Im thinking in make just out of spite in the Zerg Rush of users spaming about F. Quantum and if its worth my already highly limited time just to get hopefully more ++ than my last AMD OC that pretty much noone cared about6
I swear IBM is just incapable of making a product that doesn’t fucking suck. I am terrified of their work with Quantum Computer research...because I just know they will fuck that up too.11
(Antman spoiler ahead)
When they hack a tunnel to the quantum realm in php ecks dee
Also when you can't enjoy the movie because you recognize php5
Hey everyone! This is a long one so get comfy~
TLDR; I'm glad to be back in the presence of all you awesome people. 2019 was a dream and I have a lot of you to thank for that.
If you've noticed, I've been away for a while. I took a sabbatical from a lot of my socials (including github - or at least public github :( this summer. Let me explain:
In late April/early May, I applied and got an internship at RBC (a big bank company in Canada) found out I'm getting flown out to San Fran for a talk I gave at a summit, and got accepted to this 2 week physics [Quantum Cryptography] camp @ UWaterloo. So I had quiet the summer. In order to throw myself into work and friends and all that, I decided that I was going to take a break. Although I took a break from Github I was still active on Github Enterprise for my job but outside of that I didn't do much.
Don't worry though, now that it's fall/winter season, I'll be in my room for way too long so it's back to the usual grind. Currently, I'm in the process of planning a hackathon, prepping for picoCTF 2019, filling out University applications, all while dealing with school :) I've got a lot of projects/things coming up so ya'll will hear more from me :D3
- Buy some big old computer.
- Sell them as quantum computer.
- Get cash and run away.
Currently this idea may work. 🤔3
I just want to get this off my chest, IE isn't a bad browser. It's highly outdated but it was good back when the alternatives weren't there. And today it's new "browser update" Edge isn't bad either. Edge really is a neat freaking piece of software. Microsoft tries their best to make a browser for their operating system (and a browser engine for their new app format!) that means it has couple of features the alternatives don't (or only with plugins) - oh and plugins, they're coming too. And still it's not slow either. From my own experience (I say this because every user says their browser is the fastest) it's way faster than Quantum. Yet Quantum is still a very good browser because it's faster than the old firefox, I guess it's open source(?) and still a privacy focused browser. Chrome (my personal favorite) on the other hand is really the fastest thing you can get - if you allow it to use all your ram - (if people like linuxxx say firefox is faster for them, I'll just smile) but for everyone worrying about ram usage and "spying", well - you know what I mean. And still I can understand people trying opera or FF/Chrome/Edge mods, I myself love "Monument". Just stop saying a browser is bad because it doesn't have what you like/does have what you don't like. The only bad browser is Midori, okay? 😘
IE isn't bad but old. Edge isn't bad today. Every high end browser (edge, quantum, chrome) has their perks and none of them is "bad".
What's your favorite Browser? Comment below9
Quantum Made all of my favorite extensions useless. I am crying.
Can anybody help me find alternatives?
especially for KittyKeys!!2
Hi guys, I've just downloaded Firefox Quantum for Fedora 26, and I've seen that it has the same problem as always on multimedia "players" of Twitter.
Do you know how to play those videos? I've seen that the codec "x264" is not native on Firefox, but I need some help.
BTW that's my first Rant <34
Visual Studio 2017 15.5 is so fast!
They should call it Visual Studio 2017 Quantum.
Hard Drive oddity: the Quantum Bigfoot. 4.3GB, 5", 7200rpm, 1996. (On top is a Seagate Barracuda 40GB for comparison.)1
I felt the internet speed was so fast today, so I went to speedtest and this came out.
Started opening tabs in Firefox Quantum like all you devs do during development. All of a sudden, firefox gave up and stopped loading any new websites.
Bookmarked all the tabs and closed ff. Clicked on again, the old process appearantly is stuck, so it showed a warning, closed the old one and opened it again.
Alright fine, opened all the tabs from bookmarks again. Firefox is again stuck. Realised some of the tabs might be acting up. Just to double check if it really is those tabs, decided to open them in chrome.
It opened fine and I continued to browse in Chrome without any hiccups.
Ok, so the new programming language Q# is out. VERY exciting for me! I love the idea of quantum computing! Then I realize that developers will need to know the basics of quantum physics to use it effectively. Yay or nay? Welp, those extremely big, expensive machines won't program themselves (yet).2
Downloaded Firefox quantum after seeing so many posts about it. On startup, I was left wondering if I had opened Opera instead. It looks and feels almost the same.4
Firefox is getting better and better!
There are even some nice new features like the screenshot tool (in 58 available for the private mode, too!) that are really exciting.
I am looking forward that Firefox could maybe become again what it was back then! It's so cool!6
I will never understand why my university is requiring me to take upper level physics. I understand the need to understand electricity and circuitry but this semester has been mostly quantum and I don't see how this will apply to development.9
Got inspired by Ewin Tang's paper on figuring out a classical computer algorithm for recommendation systems inspired by quantum computers and started to write up an email to a professor in some Quantum research I'm interested in doing. As a high school student, it's VERY daunting to start. Been researching the prof and I'm super excited but it's nerve racking! Like what if she doesn't even open her research projects to high school students and I'm wasting my time? In case, I am planning on asking if there is anyone else I should contact. I'm focused on doing this research with McMaster since it's nearby but I'm really doubting myself. People my age who do this stuff are phenomenal and I feel like I wouldn't live up to that. You guys are probably a lot more experienced in this so if you've got any advice or tips, let me know.
fireFtp broken -> all my ftp accounts in limbo now.
Just in case there was no Quantum rant today...
Mozilla's addon's page is down and i can't install Ghostery, error indicator, etc...
What a nice start for Firefox Quantum :(2
Well, for the most part it has already been evolving in the direction of ALL software becoming a SAAS subscription service and will continue to do so in the future. There will soon be absolutely no software needing to be installed, you will have 20+ monthly payments to 20+ software services.
Secondly, ML will be the new standard. Real ML, not if else statements :P
Convenience is the name of the game, and that is what the web and software allow. For all the bitching Developers do regarding Privacy or Lack thereof, it is this Lack of Privacy that allows for convenience and also drives the growth of our industry, so I am not sure why devs are all about trying to keep it.
I also believe there will be competitors to the World Wide Web or 'sub' webs.
There will be a biotechnics and implants revolution shortly where we will have gadgets enhancing our natural abilities and senses, so bionic will be the new norm. Our bodies will be connected to the web 24/7.
As a software engineer, best to start learning ML as that will be the continued direction of software, until at least the quantum computer is feasible, which will then allow for true AI. I mean after all, you need quantum for consciousness.
True AI won't be the end all, given the fact it being a probability machine like us, it won't have all the answers and will make mistakes and judgements just like humans.
Everything will continue to be automated.1
Absolutely love astronomy, astrophysics and astrophotography - the latter is pretty low-level but I make do with what I have.
Also really like things on the smallest level - string theory, quantum mechanics, particle physics etc.
I have many more, like mountain biking, gaming and various design things, but these are the geekiest by far and also my favorite.1
>over9999 times faster
-Ughm, okay, but what is the trick?..
-THE TRICK IS THAT NONE OF YOUR FAVORITE ADDONS WILL WORK!!!
Seriously this is fucking insane! Several of my addons which were essential for me to stay sane is gone and I don't even know how to live without them. And all this bullshit is happening because these idiots in Mozilla decided to enforce use of WebExtensions. For ones who unaware, WebExtensions is much, much poorer framework and many cool addons simply unable to work under WebExtensions because of its limitations.
Are you the one who loved the speed and joy of using mouse gestures? GUESS WHAT — IT'S GONE.
Maybe you made your browsing activity super efficient with use of the “Tab Groups” addon that used to allow you to group your browser sessions? SAY BYE-BYE TO IT!
And many more!
Most importantly, I cannot understand why would a company enforce use of a framework that will decrease functionality of a product.
Anyway, it seems like Firefox is not a browser for addon enthusiasts like me anymore; got to find a new one, any recommendations?11
Please do not flame me for makimg yet another Firefox rant. Besides, this is not about Quantum in particular and is definitely a self rant.
It was some time last month; i saw somebody here say something about Firefox Developer Edition, and I decided I wanted to be a big boy and try out big boy tools. I downloaded the tarball, unzipped it, and put the folder in my /opt/ directory. But it didn't work.
NO. My brain didn't work.
I forgot that Firefox comes default on Ubuntu, and I also seemed to inconveniently forgot that taskbar icons are not magic mind readers. I opened firefox and lo! Not a fuck changed; i was confused, but too busy to care enough to figure out the issue; I chalked it up to I wasn't meant to have nice things and went on with my life.
Fast forward to today, I got it up. And let me tell you, I am pissed with myself. I haven't opened a single webpage yet and I can already tell from the customization possible and the built-in tools alone that I'll be enjoying working in this browser very much.2
The number of scripters and 'data scientists' that call themselves developers will increase, the true art of development will become sidelined and the world's code will become progressively more bloated and inefficient as the rift between hardware and software widens to an echoey chasm.
Then quantum processors will come along, requiring new logic, languages and practices, and once again the true developers will rise up and pave the way for a bunch of entitled, know-it-all and self-promoting QuarkaScripters to come along decades later and pretend like they invented programming.
Firefox quantum has shown us what is "back with a bang" called. 😈😈 #smoothasbutter #fastlikelight
I guess, I have praised it a lot ! 🙈🙊
Thought experiment time:
Imagine that this whole universe is a simulation created by a Group Of Developers (GOD).
- Who would make up this group?
- What kind of design patterns would they follow?
- What type of programming language would they use?
- What kind of bugs are there if any?
- How do they test?
- Assuming the use of quantum computing, what are the implications? Parallel simulations? All possibilities play out?
- Would the controller input be life?
- Who is AI and who are players?
- Has all time already been rendered?
- Do we respawn?
- What would the leaderboard look like?
- What kind of stats are tracked
- What are dreams, nightmares, lucid dreams, sleep paralysis, birth and death?
- How is memory stored, accessed and pruned?
- What kind of neural net is used and where?
etc etc, if you can think of any other interesting fire away7
How far we went. Like two or three years ago quantum computing was something from a Sci fi movie, and now there is a fucking programming language for them that anyone can learn in theory!3
Reading. Textbooks mostly. There's nothing I love more in life than learning and there is just so much to learn.
I tend to get stuck on one particular subject at a time. At the minute it's quantum mechanics. Previously it's been philosophy (specifically the philosophy of artificial intelligence), politics and biomechanics.
You can find good books on any subject and the fact I can just spend hours combing through and learning is just mesmerising to me.2
FU OneTab. This is second time you lost my saved tabs. Off you go.
TL;DR OneTab extension has major bug.
Anyone who read my suggestions/comments to use OneTab to save your opening tabs on your Chrome and Firefox, I apologize from here. And suggest you to be careful with it. I know that I have recommended it plenty of times here.
I have no idea what's causing the data lost. I used OneTab since years ago on Chrome and it worked fine. I switched to Firefox when Quantum came out. OneTab came to FF addon repo this year. I was very happy and installed and used it straight away. But it wasn't as good as before.
I don't like to open lots of tabs. Max I have will be a dozen. I like to work different task, different project on different windows. I usually have 2 windows. One window for my personal and social use with tabs like devRant, discord, etc. Second window for one of my projects and I usually work on one project at a time. If I have to juggle among multiple projects unfortunately, I open third or fourth windows respectively.
Hence, saving all opening tabs of a window to be able to open it easily next time is a very useful feature for me. I don't even need those saved to be permanent. I save URLs I frequently visit as bookmarks and URLs I found useful to pocket.
OneTab served that purpose. But losing saved tabs is definitely major problem for me. So I have uninstalled it and now giving a try to Stash. Very new add-on, so I'm still not sure of it yet. On bright side, it is made for Firefox and open-source. OneTab is not open-source.
So far Stash is working fine. But I will wait and see for a week or so.2
So, Apple invented the lightning connector to avoid the quantum-state USB issue?
I just had to rotate my iPhone around 3 times to plug it in!
(in my defense, I'm in a completely dark room and iPhones have 2 short sides....)2
I was searching for explanations to the topic quantum physics, when I found this website...
Anyway they insinuate what they want to do...3
Firefox Quantum broke mouse gestures of any kind in Linux by forcing the context menu to come up on right mouse down, instead of up.
Lots of people love Quantum, but without a viable mouse gestures extension, it's unusable for me. I downgraded back to 56 until this issue is resolved.3
Which browser do you guys prefer ?
(currently switch between opera, vivaldi and firefox quantum(beta).)16
When after one month of the event, a month n a half of the request, and a failed delivery attempt, the swag finally arrives!!
Thank you Mozilla!!5
So I was reading some info and watching videos about the D-Line/NASA/Google quantum computer. I understand why this thing was built but how the heck do you program something like that?
Anyone concerned that having such a powerful computer coupled with AI is slightly nerve wrenching?14
A long time ago: Joking about QuantumComputingAiBlockchainVR ...
Today: Reading articles about QuantumAi ..
What comes next? 🤦1
I've got Firefox Quantum a couple of days ago now. It's really awesome!
But one thing bothered me...
Today I changed the icon to the old one.
Now it's the Firefox I love, it's perfect!2
Sometimes, I feel my codes follow quantum mechanics... Uncertainty everywhere.. Either it will run or follow proper standards.. Expecting both at a same time.. is not yet possible..
I can find a new excuse about my uncertain codes... If quantum engineers solve the uncertainty principle, then only my codes also will learn to behave as expected..
Has anyone started learning Q#? Or do you think it's creation was a little optimistic on Microsoft's part?8
To many "Quantum" this days: Firefox Quantum, Samsung TV Quantum, Quantum computer.......wait does that last one count??5
anybody ever work with ProjectQ or QISKit? I'm doing a project for my algorithms class on Shor's algorithm, and I'm trying to find a guide for an implementation.
The day has finally come! I was waiting for Firefox Quantum for me to make the switch from Chrome. I like the new design and it is definitely zippy. Loving it thus far!
Muuuuch lower RAM usage too. This is especially great for me since my Internet is slow and I only have 4GB RAM.
I just used the program from the download itself. Mint for some reason still uses 54 by default, which came out in 2015. Anyone know how to switch panel icons? I want the fancy new icon on my taskbar.2
Well this is interesting: just stumbled upon Microsoft's Q#, a quantum computing language, complete with compiler and sim.
It has a similar symtax to C# but is slightly different, and it also depends on C# for doing something with the computed bits.1
Firefox Quantum vs Chrome - Round 2
I was prompted with an update for FF (auto-updater always fails for some reason), went on their website, found that part on the page, and opened up task manager. Had a short laugh.
FF: 7 tabs
Same extensions (AdBlocker, Ghostery, PageSpeed). Chrome has JetBrains integration though.
Actually 60% more use. Quantum Optimisations™7
DEV dream journal: I dreamed about a decentralized A.I. that injected itself on every device and reprodused itself on a 3D printer. Well, in the end some sort of super quantum computer killed it tho. 🤣 should go out more often and stop watching terminator4
You ever wonder if we'll have jobs once quantum computers are the norm? How do you program a bit that's both on and off?5
I tried Firefox Quantum, but sadly back to Chrome it is for me.
I miss my extensions too much, and can't quite find an exact match for them in FF
It also still managed to use 3GB RAM 🙄2
Strangermeet up conversation
Me: just sleep bro ,u can't get girl here.
Stranger : can't sleep R8 now, reading quantum computing book.
Me : interesting
Yes we are now friends (#~#)
Share your thoughts of General AI /Strong AI
How far away?
Will it need Quantum Computing?
What company will get General AI working first?
Do you fear Strong AI?9
Frnd : Array starts at 1
Me : ya, when donkeys teaches Quantum mechanics and Einstein shits black hole3
rant && what do you think?
so one of our ISP (Orange Slovakia) had troubles with service for like two days. Their DNS servers translated domains to IPs reaaally slow or not at all. So when i saw the dns error in chrome (yes i use chrome and not quantum) I changed my dns to google dns and ignored it.
Two days later when the service was back up and running, this ISP went to the local media and made a statement "we had a DDOS attack, no user data were harmed, blabla" that was when my BS radar went bananas... so somebody DDOSd your DNS server ... for two fucking days straight... this is probably a lie or they have really noob engineers (or both).
I'm not an expert on network services or routing, or servers but, how about turning off this server, IP and setting up a backup on a different IP ? Possibly anyone here with experience how to handle DDOS? Whats the chance of this happening? i'm really curious23
NOT being able to handle hidden Select options on your own is one thing. FORCING ME TO INVALIDATE MY HTML (wrapping the options in spans, or paragraphs or whatever) to achieve such a trivial task, brings me up to the point where:
B) I have been machine-gun cursing all along the entire process of performing A), reaching the level where I HAVE EXHAUSTED ALL POSSIBLE COMBINATIONS OF SWEARWORDS AND HIDEOUS DEFILING CURSES TOWARDS EVERY BIT OF YOUR CODE.
C) I STILL HAVEN'T MANAGED TO VENT MY FRUSTRATION FOR ALL THIS SHITLOAD OF BARF.
FUCKING SAFUCKARI YOU SHITTY BAG OF FERMENTED SCROTUMS, I HATE YOU AS MUCH AS A PIG LOVES MUD. I WISH YOU BURN IN THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF HELL IN EVERY QUANTUM INSTANCE OF ETERNITY THAT EXISTED, EXISTS WILL EXIST IN THE FUTURE.
I can already imagine in the future:
Remember back in the 10s when there was quantum computers with the size of a room for tens of thousands of dollars? Now everyone has one implanted in their head with 100 times the computing power! With the old hashing algorithms we could mine hundreds of blocks every second just with thinking about it1
What are the thoughts of privacy conscious people about quantum computers? As far as I understand current TLS version encryption method is vulnerable to quantum computers, thus if your ISP or other agencies store all your traffic data right now, they'll be able to decrypt it after gaining access to quantum computers.
One way to secure your privacy would be to use your own VPN that uses encryption method that is quantum-resistant, but again the VPN would be using TLS to connect to the Internet.6
Hi guys, as I think this is the perfect good place to share point of view, I would love to know what do you think.
Years after years, people fight against hacks/piracy, like governments or video games editor.
Recently, we all heard about that piracy team who said that in the close future, breaking games protection would be impossible, yet the famous Denuvo (DRM) even if hard to break, is still broke few days/weeks after game release.
Here's what I think.
No matter what, hacking/piracy will always have steps ahead of protections. Because that's the way it is, the way it works. Maybe protections will be effective for a while, but there will always be somewhere, someone smart enough to break it. I start thinking that when a iPhone/Sony claims that they were safe and Geohot break their protections one by one.
There is no perfect protection.
(Quantum computers aside).
What do you guys think?3
Have any of you tried Firefox Quantum? What are your thoughts about it? I am thinking on switch from Chrome on macOS.7
Interplanetary networking and quantum computing 🤔 something to ponder about... I want to be there now!
. Resisted the urge of trying Firefox Quantum when everyone was talking about it on here.
. Finally gave in today and tried it.
. Fell in love with it.3
1. Give me the world's first fully functional quantum computer
2. Make it understand natural language but only me
3. Make it internet/network capable
And after writing all that I just realized... basically give me control of this guy or actually the blue one.
Am I the only one where the new Firefox Quantum just hangs when loading sites?(fresh FF install on Ubuntu 16.04)
Chromium works fine though...6
eBay's APIs make me want to cry.
Take the sandbox for example:
- Every time you log into a session, it logs you out.
- When you create an order (eventually!) and want to retrieve it, tough shit it doesn't feel like doing that today.
- Functionality both exists and doesn't exist at the same time on both the LIVE and Sandbox APIs. I don't know how they've managed to get quantum computers in their server room, but their GOD DAMN API LIBRARIES ARE NOT THE BEST USE CASE FOR QUANTUM COMPUTING!!
I don't know if I despise eBay or Magento more...
The last weeks I was reading and watching videos about quantum computers and I can't wait like ten years until they becomes useful.1
I'm loving Firefox quantum, but I really wish the firegestures dev would update to 57+. Turns out I am really, really dependent on gestures.
Welp, how much longer till someone building some magic to crack any modern encryption in blink of an eye.
tl;dr Google claimed it has managed to cut calculation time to 200 seconds from what it says would take a traditional computer 10,000 years to complete.
Hi. I stumbled upon this Kickstarter project: https://kickstarter.com/projects/...
Is it worth it or is it just a waste of money?
I am a quite of a lurker, but from the posts I read @linuxxx should be the expert on this subject (I mean no offense to any other devRanter and I apologize if you felt unappreciated by what what I wrote).
Looking forward to your replies.
Thanks for your time.10
Fuck. I don't think any conventional encryption stands a chance against this monster...
I'm frustrated with the Firefox Quantum. When a perform a query it takes a long time. I've unchecked the Prevent Accessibility option, I've reseted it, removed all plugins, reinstalled,... I do not know what else to do... Change to chrome?
Only 1 thing FF Quantum is missing, the rendered network preview :( Sure it sends back the html which I can drop onto an about:blank but it's an extra step I'd really rather not have to do
Why is everyone+dog starting to harden their systems against quantum computers cracking it? Are usable quantum computers available for all the insiders now? This is all giving me the deja vu feel of eternalblue/wannacry fix Microsoft was passionately recommending to update back when it wasn't publicly know.
Will we code on quantum computers in rhe future? What language will work? Will there be new language for just them?4
Got a weird bug today...
A new feature I just implemented works but outputs nothing.
So I start printing its inputs early in the code, fine no problem here. Then I print out the supposed results a little bit later, fine too. But now the full program work perfectly.
I find out that if I remove one of those two prints then suddenly my function start outputing empty arrays! WTF?
I think I find a quantum bug, you can observe the bug or the internal values but not both!5
My first experience with Firefox 57 (aka "Quantum"):
WHERE THE FUCK DID MY TEXT GO.
HOLY SHIT! HOW CAN YOU FUCK UP SOMETHING LIKE TEXT RENDERING.
Then I installed nightly and it worked again.
Most of the people here is losing their shit over FF Quantum.
And i'm over here losing it over the fact that I've just found out that Opera has a VPN built in
I wish I could be a quantum computing programmer! This way I can work on my side project while this other me attends all the boring meetings
whenever I want to explain quantum physics to someone I simply ask them to attempt to plug a dongle into both and observed and unobserved usb port.1
Quantum, Chrome, IE, Safari (the new IE), but wait... Anyone remember Avant Browser? I fucking loved that shit, seriously.1
I would end up on top of any other trend thing needed by humanity.
- building better AI's, building better robots
- neural networking
- quantum computing
- robot dating service
- artificial life
- holodeck design and construction
- free energy (any kind)
- running a private space shipyard
- research into new and unknown technology
And last, if nothing works, I would open up a deli on Mars. The robots would make the food anyway, I would probably only program the menu and fix them when they malfunction.
Downloaded Firefox Quantum after the hype. Opened it. Loaded a website. Closed it again 😂
What are the dev tools like? I was never a fan on the FF dev tools for some reason. Are they more comparable to Chrome now?5
Working on a mix of a toolbox/lxc-like container manager built on systemd-nspawn, and a really cool university research project that basically involves playing with quantum computing frameworks and writing out their comparitive pros and cons
Anyone familiar with the culture/environment over at NCR?
I have a job offer from them but am a little worried because I have worked mainly in smaller startups my whole career.
Am I going to end up wanting to kill myself after 6 months if I take this job?
I'm not a fan of reinventing the wheel but I have this new found motivation to learn everything related to tech , science and math from scratch. I'm talking new models and so on . It's probably not going to work like most of my other ideas but it's worth giving it a shot . For now I guess I will setup a new YouTube channel or something and log the progress and the development .
That said I'm not sure where i should start first but I do know I want to cover everything from programming and quantum scripting to rocket science . Work our way up slowly ofcourse ...
This year I'll join college and opt for BCA. But i want to take a step towards future. How can i learn quantum-focused programing language like Q# and become expert and write programs in it? Also, any career advice is appreciated. I'm just the beginner but i liked coding very much in my high school and i want to be a software developer in future.
