Search - "rss"
Three days ago I wrote a comment:
"It's weird how the internet shifted from protocols to platforms.
Devs still know the plumbing, but for most people IRC became Whatsapp, FTP became Dropbox, RTSP became Netflix, SIP became Zoom and RSS became Google Now... so people might eventually forget about SMTP and this whole "email" hype.
In a decade or two we'll have forgotten about URLs and HTTP and the "internet" as well. You just pay your monthly $10 sub to Google or Amazon or Apple to have your condensed streams of memes & bait funneled right into your eyeballs."
And now Chrome devs are considering removing URLs just like in Safari, just showing the domain you are on....
Enjoy your retard web, people.
What's next, new Macbook & Chromebook standardized designs to prevent people from being confused?43
Wrote some codes that uses your photos to compose an input image. Will post code later. Written in Python though. Also this is my dad. Also I wrote this in Yellowstone cuz I didn't like the view lol.20
After one year of procrastination I finally made the game with unity
Ladies and gentleman, spherical voronoi minesweeper
Yes, I made the game before with in c++ which looks quite shitty, but finally, unity30
So I've been pulling my hair out as for WHY ON FUCKING EARTH MY CHANGES DON'T SHOW WHEN I RUN THE RSS FEED GENERATOR.
Oh right maybe I should upload the file first 😅🔫10
Wrote some code during the break that transform an image to the following styles, is it good enough to post on github?23
Not code related, but.....
When you open a pron site and see this
Guess I should save the planet instead of jerking off10
So I was applying for a research position in linguistic department, and had the interview today.
Prof: So you know excel right
Me: (show a project to him to prove I at least know csv file)
Prof: Ok so you know excel.
Me: Yeah kinda.
Prof: Ok that's good. Cuz right now we are using amazon Turk, and the data they returned, which are excel files, are not really the way we want it.
Me: Ok sounds like a parser can fix it......
Prof: Yeah.... the students in the lab are doing it manually now
Prof: Ok move onto next matter7
Someone asked for an RSS feed for the security/privacy blog, I thought?
Well, hereby! There are three feeds:
https://much-security.nl/main.xml - a feed which is updated with both blog posts and external links relating to privacy/security I find interesting/useful.
https://much-security.nl/own.xml - a feed only containing the blogs posts themselves. For people who are only interested in that part.
https://much-security.nl/external.x... - a feed only containing external links. For people who'd like to stay updated on recent cyber security/privacy thingies.
Tracking: every time a feed is visited, a redis value for that feed get's incremented. No time, ip addresses, user agent or whatsoever is saved. Just one variable getting increased once.
New domain name will also be revealed soon (probs tomorrow, going to bed soon as I've just been sick) :D.
Oh and just a warning, the main/external feed are the only ones populated with exactly one item right now :P30
It's really funny to build a PHP based RSS feed generator when, this morning, I hardly knew what RSS even was 😆11
Just met my old friend a few minutes ago and he asked me, "what work you do?"
Me > Well you already know, I'm a developer.
He > Oh, so you make mobile apps and websites?
Me > Well kinda yea but I work on websites mostly, will build my mobile app later someday.
He > Yea, you have something called web2,web3 and RSS FEED and you know anyone can do coding and developer stuff, only hard thing is to get a good idea.
(that was exactly his sentence)
Me > ......................... (in my head)5
Things happened this year so far in chronological order:
Applied to PhD and got all rejected
Graduated without a job because I thought the last event wouldn’t happen
Decided to take more shots at universities in Europe and Canada
Paper got published and got best paper honorable mention
Interviewed by couple professors and the one in Canada seems to be interested in me
School in Canada, which rejected me before, reopened my case for review
Bank account got closed because my parents transferred me some money to support my unemployment ass and bank thought it was a fraud
The review process took so long I got hopeless and thought, if I end up writing webpages for other people, why not doing it now? And did two webpages which are in my previous rant, pretty good and highly recommended imo
Canada school promised a date but didn’t follow that date, depression attack
Finally sent them an email and got an answer saying the admission approved my application and they are working on paper work. But I still don’t believe it because I’m paranoid
Got an email from a professor today confirming they are doing paper work and I should receive official paper soon.
You can see the dramatic ups and downs, but in the end, guess I’m going to Toronto for phd14
Alright lets work on the security/privacy blog again.
Things I've got in the making right now: dark theme by default, font change and an rss feed!
Let me know what you'd like to see :)
I'll also reveal a new domain name soon!40
I wish there is such thing as branch in a relationship. So that whenever a couple are having a fight, they can create a branch and work their shit out in that branch and eventually merge to the master branch.
That just costs.... more conflicts3
Finally finished the blog post and (nearly) the last bugs (few remaining, still gotta think about how to solve them) are fixed.
The new blog post is online! I've taken a look at the Telegram messaging app and basically burned it into the ground. (Provided sources as well)
Next to that, a new domain name! As this blog is about online security AND privacy, I decided to change the domain name. The new one:
Dark theme can be enabled but will only work on one domain, you have to enable it on the other one as well to get a dark theme there. It stores the value in a cookie so it will remain when you reload the page and don't remove the cookies.
The RSS feed generator has a bug right now which makes that the page doesn't get updated, will work on that one tomorrow.
Last but not least, you can email me suggestions and so on at email@example.com :)34
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
Finally installed Ubuntu and successfully configured the wifi setting, any package I should install?31
You know the code is in bad shape when you see variables starting with "get":
I updated the UI as I said last time
Found out word cloud essentially is NP hard problem, so can’t do it in an efficient way.
However, now it is more interactive, and gives the illusion it is faster30
I created a mesh viewer
With matrix effect
Got a friend request on Facebook and it reminded me of xkcd #624.
I hope they're at least using git-lfs.19
Doing linguistic research where I need to parse 2000 files of a total of 36 GB. Since we are using python the first thing I thought was to implement multi threading. Now I changed the total runtime from three days to like one day and a half. But then when I checked the activity monitor I saw only 20 percent of the CPU usage. After a searching process I started to understand how multi threading and multi processing works. Moral of the story: if you want to ping a website till they block you or do easy tasks that will not use up all power of one core, do multi thrading. If you need to do something complicated that can easily consume all the powers of a single CPU core, split up the work and do multi processing. In my case, when I tried to grab information from a website, I did multi thrading since the work is easy and I really wanted to pin the website 16 times simultaneously but only have 4 cores. But when it come to text processing which a single file will take 80 percent of cpu, split it up and do multi processing.
This is just a post for those who are confused with when to use which.12
Now here comes my first zsh shell plugin. Its called dogesay and it will repeat your command with much, wow, nice...13
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
There are legal companies in my home country who make a living by selling pirated games and software for only 2$ each...15
I didn't even know what photography is a month ago. Then I was going on a road trip with my girlfriend so I bout a camera. Didn't read the manual just watched bunch of videos and realized it was just tuning parameters. Now I'm the master.6
Another project done in 3 days
Generates word cloud based on image and text file user given, the default is Lincoln and his speeches.
Doesn’t work on phones, please view it on desktop/laptop
My god I’m a fucking legend12
I rewrote my static website generation from jekyll to custom python code over single night.
Literally all jekyll plugins I use including seo, rss, syntax highlighting inside markdown content, sitemap, social plugins, css sass, all of it.
Now it’s around 400 lines of python code that I understand completely. I didn’t touch any existing templates and after comparing output I got even better results now and it’s working faster.
I skipped drafts as I don’t need them now.
Why ? Cause now I can make better generator for my side projects that can include some partial website generation, better modification and date handling, tree structure, etc.
What I will do now is that I will parse bunch of content to create markdown files that will be sucked by this generator to create static web pages that will flood internet lol.
Still I didn’t believe it was possible to rewrite all of it so quickly. I sit yesterday around 4pm and finished around 6am.
I started thinking that maybe I am crazy and no one can help me.9
Quarantine and unemployment gave me opportunities to do side projects, here is another one I’ve done recently and I think you guys will like it
It is an image mosaic that preserves features based on color gradient, and tries to use as many photos as possible instead of just repeatedly using same picture over and over.
Here is the link: https://github.com/txstc55/...
For those who care about my minesweeper game, I’m working on submitting it to steam and make it a free game.2
I'M BACK TO MY WEBDEV ADVENTURES GUYS! IT TOOK ME LIKE 4 MONTHS TO STOP BEING SO FUCKING DEPRESSED SO I CAN ACTUALLY STAND TO WORK ON IT AGAIN
I learned that the linear gradient looks cool as FUCK. Honestly not too fond of the colors I have right now, but I just wanted to have something there cause I can change it later. The page has evolved a bunch from my original concept.
The URL bar changed into a full command bar (writing the functions for the commands now, also used to config smaller things, such as the user@hostname part, maybe colors, weather data for city and API key, etc)....also it can open URLs and subreddits (that part works flawlessly). The bar uses a regex to detect if it's a legit URL (even added shit so I don't need http:// or https://), and if it's not, just search using duckduckgo (maybe I'll add a config option there too for search engines).
At this very moment it doesn't even take a second to fully load. It fetches weather data from openweathermap, parses it, and displays it, then displays the "user" name grabbing a localstorage value.
I'm considering adding a sidebar with links (configurable obviously, I want everything to be dynamic, so someone else could use my page if they wanted), but I'm not too sure about it.
It's not on git yet because I was waiting until I get some shit finished today before I commit. From the picture, I want to know if anyone has any suggestions for it. Also note that I am NOT a designer. I can't design for shit.13
So I finished my first semester in NYU as a CD master. During the first semester I took a class called heuristic problem solving. Every week a competitive game will be introduced to us, and will be played in two weeks. And trust me, the games aren't easy. I teamed up with another guy who I had no idea was and named our team as we don't know. At the end of the semester we won seven out of nine games, and by won I meant that we beat the whole class in the match. And my teammate became a really good friend.
By telling this story, I want to make a point. I love problem solving, and not problems in a algorithm book where you apply an algorithm and do some trick to solve it, but real world problem where you hope for the best and anticipate, predict your opponent's move. However, American's school system doesn't teach that.
When I applied to graduate school, no school wanted me because I have an average GPA of 3.6, and no outstanding achievements. I can solve problems in my dream becaus I have an active mind, I can propose solution to a project one month before my teammates realized they essentially were doing what I told them the solution should be. But so what, I can't write those on my application.
One of the professor told me that my professor shared the story of my team during a faculty dinner, and they were very impressed by our achievement. So I guess I'm not dumb. But after all, companies and schools will look at your transcript and decide who you are.
I love myself for having random thoughts all the time that can lead to innovative problem solving. But I also hate myself for not able to study like the good kids are.10
Hey, people's of devrant!
You guys seem to know a lot about this, so I'm going to ask this question here..
Can i have some recommendations for apps to use (Android) that respect privacy and are preferably enctypted?
Things I would like:
Google drive / Dropbox alternative
A nice looking image viewer / gallery (I don't like the Samsung one)
An RSS feed reader.
Google docs alternative
Maybe a calendar / reminder app
I think that's it. Also feel free to mention other apps that you guys use on a regular basis26
Just added an RSS feed to my blog (https://nixmagic.com/rssfeed.xml/ if you're interested), and as I was testing it out in an RSS reader, I noticed that the reader basically just renders the webpage as if it were a web browser.
Heh.. I have only the Webkit engine on my computer, so I suppose it's just using that in the backend or something like that? How much RAM does that consume?
*looks at Task Manager*
67MB. I shit you not.. 67 megabytes. And that is rendering an entire website with no noticeable differences from a regular web browser.
Idk if anyone here noticed.... sudo sounds like 速度 in Chinese, which means quickly. So the every time I use this command I just feel like I'm rushing computer to do something for me5
So one year ago, when I was second year in college and first year doing coding, I took this fun math class called topics in data science, don't ask why it's a math class.
Anyway for this class we needed to do a final project. At the time I teamed up with a freshman, junior and a senior. We talked about our project ideas I was having random thoughts, one of them is to look at one of the myths of wikipedia: if you keep clicking on the first link in the main paragraph, and not the prounounciation, eventually you will get to philosophy page.
The team thought it was a good idea and s o we started working.
The process is hard since noe of us knew web scraping at the time, and the senior and the junior? They basically didn't do shit so it's me and the freshman.
At the end, we had 20000 page links and tested their path to philosophy. The attached picture is a visualization of the project, and every node is a page name and every line means the page is connected.
This is the first open project and the first python project that I have ever done. Idk if it is something good enough that I can out on my resume, but definitely proud of this.
PS: if you recognize the picture, you probably know me. If you were the senior or the junior in the team, I'm not sorry for saying you didn't do shit cuz that's the truth. If you were the freshman, I am very happy to have you as a teamate.2
Do you fellow devranters know some cool tech/dev/programming RSS feeds you'd like to share ? I'm bored always reading the same few ones.6
After talk to the professor I'm working for
Professor: well, take a break.
Me: take a break? I have to report to you next week during spring break and you just released an assignment.
Professor: well but you have three weeks for the assignment.
Me: inside: but you said start early on the assignment
Professor: take a break4
Fuck dev.to and hashnode for shadowbanning my articles. I'm moving to my own self-hosted blog.
2500 subscribers worth nothing if they're on dev.to just for the sake of being on dev.to, just to post their shit and run away. 15 genuine subscribers are way more valuable to me.
That being said, subscribe if you want to read my essays. I even have RSS.
So I have the new Mac book pro for 8 months now, always thought that the butterfly keyboard issue will never happen to me.
Until three days ago I noticed my space key is kinda sticky.
I have an external monitor so I don’t recall any time I spill water or food directly on the keyboard.
So I made an appointment for a walk in.
BUT this morning, I was like: man, fuck this shit and smashed the space key.
Now it’s fixed.
Back with more features now!
Cuz I don't have anything to do at work
This image is composed of screenshots from season three4
Since the last post did not have the gif correctly attached, and @C0D4 suggested how to do this properly, here it is again.
With virtual camera, now I join meetings like this, and it is a live demo not just a video
Here is the repo to achieve the effect
You will still need a virtual camera software to project it in the meeting, for me I used OBS8
Fuck it, implemented another idea: image voronoi, it computes a voronoi diagram over the input image, each cell is then populated with the average color inside that cell
This is an image with the get high option on
I’m so productive and I’m proud of myself6
Lab needs a crawler to download some assets, none of my business though
But why not
Haven't touched crawler for two years
Google for latest state of art
I have to define a class for a crawling script?
Went back to beautifulsoup and request
Got the job done in 20 mins
When your professor invented the subject and you don't understand his lecture so you go online and search for the term and all you found is his slides from other universities when he was a professor over there.4
Each time I try firefox after somebody mentions it again or it's in my rss feed, it still seems to never actually advance
It's stuck and either gets worse or goes back to its stable non improving level again, how come do they still not have a proper mobile responsive tester, why are even the upgraded addons still suffering the same container and rendering bugs
how is it more important getting bad image by implementing mr robot malware, than getting on an actual competitive level
why is it default bloated with random pocket addon bullshit, why did it begin to lag, ..
I remember when I was using firefox for a good portion of my life and laughed at how google chrome is laggy, but nowadays theres simply no competition to chrome, its stability and developer tools
I wish there was competition, the grid tools were a great start, but then nothing followed and they just went back to their never improving flatline16
With the help of obs virtual camera, now I can join meeting like this
It’s real time not just a video, idk if gif works correctly on devrant now, but it’s me dancing
Edit: apparently gif still doesn’t work on devrant18
First of all, a great channel to follow and where all this is from: https://youtube.com/watch/...

No x-server, wayland. just drm and framebuffer. use computer just fine in this env. I can watch youtube and video. play music, play twitter, read rss, edit my program, surf a web, connect with other computer, view my image, read pdf with this freaking lightweight env.
Basicly, my super battery saver mode.
(want me to list all of these cli/tui app?)5
Never wrote a website before
Wanted to write a website for myself just for PhD application.
Learned Vue on Saturday and wrote the website in three days.
Conclusion: fuck css
I can post the website if anyone is interested to take a look though17
You know a server is having a jolly'ol time when, while logging through the serial console, it lags... Then, a few seconds later, you get a message
[time.seconds] Out of memory: Kill process PID (login) score 0 or sacrifice child
[time.seconds] Killed process PID (login) total-vm:65400kB, anon-rss:488kB, file-rss:0kB
10/10, only way to bring the server back to life was by a hard-reset :|3
Everyday I go on Reddit to find memes, and share it with my girlfriend. Maybe I should build a website for this?11
Reinvent the wheel but be prepared to let that little project aside.
Follow a lot of people (twitter, rss, slack, etc) but do not jesusify anyone.
Listen to podcasts but remember most of them are advertising.
Read technical papers but don't take every idea as brilliant.
Well it's a bit long but worth reading, two crazy stories in one rant:
So there are 2 things to consider as being my first job. If entrepreneurship counts, when I was 16 my developer friend and I created a small local music magazine website. We had 2 editors and 12 writers, all music enthusiasts of more or less our age. We used a CMS to let them add the content. We used a non-profit organization mentorship and got us a mentor which already had his exit, and was close to his next one. The guy was purely a genius, he taught us all about business plans, advertising, SEO, no-pay model for the young journalists (we promised to give formal journalist certificates and salary when the site grows up)
We hired a designer, we hired a flash expert to make some advertising campaigns and started filling the site with content.
Due to our programming enthusiasm we added to the raw CMS some really cool automation: We scanned our country's radio charts each week using a cron job and the charts' RSS, made a bot to search the songs on youtube and posted the first search result as an embedded video using some reg-exps. This was one of the most fun coding times I've had. Doing these crazy stuff with none to little prior knowledge really proved me I can do anything with the power of will.
Then my partner travelled to work in an internship in the Netherlands and I was too lazy to continue it on my own and it closed, not so surprisingly for a 16 years old slacker boy.
Then the mentor offered my real first job. He had a huge forum (14GB of historical SQL) but it was dying, the CMS version was very old and he wanted me to upgrade it to the latest. It didn't seem hard at first, because there were very clear instructions in the CMS website on how to do that. However, the automation upgrade scripts didn't work well because the forum owners added some raw code (not MVC plugins but bad undocumented code) and some columns to the SQL tables. I didn't give up and decided to migrate between the versions without the scripts. I opened a new CMS and started learning by heart all of the database columns so I can make a script to migrate between the versions. The first tests ran forever because processing 14GB of data on a single home computer is not a task meant to be done. I didn't give up. I made an old forum and compared the table structures and code with my mentor's. I think I didn't exhaustively finish this solution, the task was too big on my shoulders and eventually I gave up. I still owe thanks for that mentor for teaching me how to bare with seemingly (and practically) impossible tasks, for learning not to fear from being a leader and an entrepreneur and also for paying me in time even though I didn't deliver anything 😂
I'm so used to rss right now, I figured I would create a rss feed for top feeds from devrant.
Here's the unofficial devrant rss feed (based off Skayo's unofficial devRant api):
Just add this link to your rss reader (I'm using feedly) and it should be recognized instantly. Each feed will have the name of the ranter, rant, image, tags and user profile. I'm running this in free tier of Heroku. Feel free to use it.
You can find the source code here: https://github.com/Ullas-Aithal/...
It's a Node.JS script. There's a herokuBuild branch which it's heroku ready.
What do you guys think? Any comments, suggestions?11
In getting a remote job, go to a lot of online job boards. Filter their feed for remote work or work from anywhere. Get the RSS feed (if they don't have it, make one yourself), and add them to your RSS reader, like Feedly.
Do the following daily:
Go through the feed, study the job post ad, apply for the job as per their instructions. Archive those you don't have an interest in and those that you have applied. Repeat.
This also applies for hunting freelance contacts too.3
When you know you should be writing your tests first, then your code. But you secretly do it the other way round anyway.2
Not sure if many people heard about nltk in python but I'm currently using a lot now for research.
So one day I was doing multiprocessing while using lemmatizer in nltk, for those who don't know, lemmatizer is a thing that change the word to its base form. So it is like, ran to run, bitches to bitch.
Anyway, the nltk package, to ensure it does not take too much memory, here's what it does: it loads a data file, and once it is loaded and accessed for the first time, it breaks the data file into CSV file. And since I was doing multiprocessing, the data file is accessed for multiple time while it can only be loaded once, hence error happened.
Instead of changing my code, which I think is good already, I went to the package directory of nltk and directly changed the source code from there and now the code works perfectly.
I'm very proud of my self at the moment, this is a very good lesson that I've learned: always look for alternatives. And suck it, nltk.1
I don’t give a shit about boycotting Mulan, I paid to watch this movie
And the movie is shit, so I genuinely ask people to not waste the money to watch it. It’s just so shit and such a waste of my time74
Me, or everybody else.
I have bipolar disorder, it’s not entirely a bad thing because sometimes my mind flies and bizarre ideas just flush into my mind, ideas that eventually prove to be useful. However, not everyone can catch up my thinking speed.
This year for my senior capstone project, I teamed up with other three brilliant students. In the middle of the project I proposed a very aggressive method when our initial model failed, but they couldn’t understand my method. Towards the end of the semester I basically finished the project alone and claimed that they were just repeating what I was doing, and they didn’t realize that until the last week. At the end, the guy who’s always in charge of the other two people said that I was right, that the very aggressive method could have worked if given them more time to think about it.
I am both relieved and sorry at that moment. I cannot explain my ideas and that leads to my teams confusion.
I am still the same guy now, haven’t changed, will still be a pain in the ass when work with other people, I tried to be patient, but idk if it was just me being too impatient or others are too dumb.
I really tried......6
So I was in my linguistic workshop today where we were going over control and raising concepts.
Without second thought, I put down 'ctrl' for control. And the guy, who's also a coder, didn't find anything wrong when looking at my sheet.
I think my vocabulary is screwed up
So I'm TAing this database class and we constantly need to use shell to edit text. I am hosting the workshop with another student, who is a vim user and I am an emacs user. During one workshop he wrote down the commands for editing and quitting vim, and I simply told them control x and controls s, then control x and control c. And the stdents are fucking complaining that is too many commands? Like, wtf? And this week when we are holding the workshop and we need to edit something so he said just open your favourite editor and a girl was like vim, vim, vim , the same girl who complained emacs is too many commands. Like I'm the total loser using emacs there. Get your shit together people omfg you brainless followers. No offense to vim users, this is just personal.1
Some articles on hackernoon involve setting up multiple fault tolerant databases
Others are about "temporary hacking using just your browser"
This is why I don't trust RSS feeds.3

MORE WEBDEV ADVENTURES
Took a break for a while due to personal stuff. Just got a job (have to get a stupid work permit from school first to actually be able to work tho), had some shit happen with two close friends that now hate me. Right now I'm upset about something that another really good friend did. So I've been doing some webdev to distract myself for a bit.
So I'm turning my URL bar that I had into a little command bar. It'll be what I use to configure stuff along with URLS and shit. I was building a little config menu that I really hated doing, was just becoming too much of a mess. Currently changing the look of it just a bit, then I'm gonna work on the functionality of it later.
Then I want to have an RSS reader which I've been putting off for a while now. Trying to get everything else done before I do that.
At this very moment, the page takes about 1.4 seconds to load. I'm trying to avoid putting anything I don't need in it. Like I'm using vanilla everything. No frameworks or anything. But that's just my personal preference.
I'll make sure to share it with you guys when I have everything built and functional. I've had a lot of interruptions while doing this. My personal life tends to get in the way of shit I try to do, because I let it get to me.
Anyways I'm just rambling at this point. I fucking love you guys1
Changing code and pushing it to the dev build server, so i don't have to wait till the build finishes on my local machine
Everyone sees a notification popup when the build has failed... ( auto build on commit + RSS feeds for build status)
So my linux system didn't have any audio output now while it worked days ago and I haven't installed any new package. I was working on this for at least two hours. Reinstall drive things like that and none worked. I thought to myself: do you really want a system without sound? I mean it's good for coding since you can focus knowing you cant watch video now since theres no sound. But do you really want it? No, I would rather reinstall it. So I closed my laptop, didnt shut it down, and searched for how to reinstall ubuntu in command line and reopened my laptop, and magically, the sound is back online...... I guess linux is more powerful than I have ever imagined.
I don’t want to write paper/ run test to produce meaningful numbers
Anyone want an image like this?
Just tell point me to the image, a set of text and I will do it for you
Please I’m bored
This is the mandalorian using his lines from season 112
Inspired by my professor’s rant about people don’t know how to google stuffs, I made a scriptable script to solve all those issues. It’s a super smart script that shows detailed step by step solution of how to tackle down a problem
Here is the repo:
Please try it out, you will love it, I promise

So I just finished a group project for a database class, it's an open project and we made a website that is basically like rate your professor. We spent tons of time on it and the website is finally settled. But that's not the point, I won't put the URL here, I just wanna say:
I fucking hate php. Fuck it.
Just fuck it5
So I have question about my resume.
During my college time, I have done two projects related to politics:
One is to analyze the bias of media. What I did is scrape news covers for Trump and Hillary during election year and get sentiment analysis. The result is not surprising that among NY Times, NBC, Fox, Eashington Post, and CNN, Fox news is clearly favoring Trump, since Fox news is a republican news site.
The other project I did was to analyze the speech complexity and sentiment of the election. One of the observation we made was that Hillary and Trump are almost at the same level regarding speech complexity. However, Trump has a more positive sentiment in the speech, which is true consider how much he loves to say make America great again.
Now the question is, when I gave my advisor my resume, she said that I'd better not put those two projects on my resume since they are related to politics.
But, I am applying for a data science master degree. Seriously, I was just collecting the data and the data speaks for himself, why should I take those projects off my resume? I'm very proud of those projects I did as a matter of fact.
So here is the question. Shall I take off those two projects on my resume because they were political or I should leave it thereawarreally need some professional views. Please.1
I have a handy RSS Feed Reader extension in Google Chrome that allows me to add RSS feeds and check them in a popup in my browser and get notified when something new comes up. I've added RSS feeds for my email, GitHub, and a whole lot of other things. It'd be really awesome if devRant added an RSS feed too, so users can implement devRant in their RSS feed readers too (if anyone still uses them in the 21st century lmao). What does everyone think?
Progress on my blog (incocast) goes smoothly, even implemented a basic rss feed. Currently the blog is Service Layer only (because I still have to create a front-end)
It might even be interesting to open some api calls to the public... I don't know yet.. Maybe..
Either way the next thing to implement is a commenting system! :)
So I wanted to publish the spherical voronoi minesweeper on steam. I paid the one time fee, submitted my tax document and then never heard back, and that’s four month ago.
Shall I just open source it, it’s a unity project so idk how the structure of that should be.
I can also just put the built version on github, if the file size is not enormous.4
You know what
I’m gonna fucking rebuild my website since the ui got bashed pretty hard by a friend who studies hci
And just gonna make it faster while at it33
Why TF does nodejs just eats 100mb of ram away for a simple application with ONE websocket connection ? I've tried getting some heap snaps, memory allocation timelines and used memwatch-next, but to no result AT ALL! Since the heap stay small but the rss memory grows like there is no tomorrow.
Trying to make a new tab page for chrome, but can't even load external anything, so I can't do the main thing I wanted to do, ie have an rss feed. Anybody got any solutions? Pulling my hair out here. :/5
Spent yesterday customizing my homepage via start.me. Now all my rss feeds and commonly used websites are singularly located on my homepage across browsers. I updated fedora, and changed my desktop to cinnamon. I installed, mint, kali, and arch. Still finishing up arch configuration lol. Procrastinated my group project further. I gotta say, best way to end a year, I've had yet. (And I've had a few now, cuz I'm starting to get old. Lol. Ha. 😫)
Is there a way to dynamically change your IP address while scraping website so that you don't get blocked cojstantly6
I wanted to get the latest NASA APOD photo with Python. Easy, right? Nope! Firstly, their RSS feed is partly HTML, so feedparser doesn't understand it. Secondly, feedparser doesn't even get the titles of entries correctly.
Which is why I'm trying to parse it in a horrible way using Python regexp. NASA can put humans on Luna but not even get their RSS feeds to parse properly.2
Do you guys know any rss-feeds that publish news about Windows, like new updates, found vulnerabilities...3
pip kept screwing me up with permission issues in /usr/local etc. Changed permissions for respective python folders, still got pip permission errors,did a chgrp - R user /usr.
Have to reinstall :/4
Shall I switch to vs code?
I have been using sublime text for years and the sublime merge works well with it. And I did buy license since I love it. Idk if I should switch or not8
apparently youtube rss feeds are no more. [this link](http://youtube.com/feeds/...) worked just a week ago, now it outputs 4043
What RSS feeds are you guys subscribed to? My reader is so damn empty all the time. Preferrably CyberSec and Linux related (English or German).
I'm currently subscribed to Heise Security (German), Hacker News, NixCraft and Linux Journal2
Why are many of the customizable mechanical keyboard still not going wireless?
I hate plugging in cables to Mac, quite against their design philosophy.8
I have a couple of small ones, but one that stands out is actually fairly recent.
It was an independent project, more for practice than anything, but it involved fetching daily horoscopes from an RSS feed and showing it to the user upon request. I first just made it as a command line program,using some new modules I hadn't used before, and seeing everything work smoothly and neatly printed out made me super excited.
Not too long ago I even made a proper GUI for it using Tkinter, which also works nicely. :) Nothing so far has beaten that first excitement upon finishing the command line one, though.
So I've just about finished a simple application practice project, it's just a program that will show you today's horoscope for different signs from an RSS feed, but I'm wondering if or how I should include disclaimers/credits for things like fonts (The two fonts I use are both open source.), and/or things like the tools used for building it (Written with Python and Tkinter in Atom.)? Do I add it under a "Help" menu or something?
What are the rules and etiquette? And is there anything specific I should include in a separate file? This is also kind of my first proper project.4
I need advice.
I'm going to apply for PhD this year, but here's the thing, I don't have a specific interest in anything.
This sounds weird but I only want to do thinking. Like solving problems.
I would have a paper coming out this month as first author, but we discovered some weekends of our algorithm recently and decided to postponed the paper (there are 4 professors on the project and one researcher), so I guess this will definitely affect my application.
Like, what shall I say even on the personal statement? That I have one active mind that just won't stop thinking? The very fact that everything is interesting to me made me not interested to anything.4
Three professors, one phd, one post doc, one researcher in a meeting doing code review for you and tell you what a shit piece this is.
Ps. I'm not a phd3
Do you know some good tech RSS,Atom,... Feeds?
Anything about programming, operating systems, hacking, Hardware would be welcome.
But please not something trash like nixcraft, where every article amounts to "How to do this very basic thing that is literally a oneliner but we felt its so complicated, it justifies writing an article about it."2
What RSS readers that has a black theme and not requirering signup for Android exists today? I have looked everywhere but cannot find anything that matches my criterias. :o9
* Automated Technical and Fundamental Expert Advisor trading in MT4 with Python dealing with RSS News Feed on the Financial Calendar
* Food decision/recommender/randomizer app
* Food decision/recommender/randomizer bot
* Personal Companion set up on Raspberry Pi with Jasper AI, buy BrickPi and Lego Mindstorm to make it a friendly moving robot
* Cardboard fort for my kid
* A 3D game that involves hacking with drama storyline (inspired from Mr. Robot) and publish it on Steam
* A SaaS app like Tinder that matches would-be Project Managers with Devs to push Devs to finish side projects that we have and push Project Managers to use whatever PM techniques and methodology (Six Sigma perhaps)
And so much more... Ughh.
Follow up my last rant which people thought it was my fault
The school called, the manager apologized and said the security guards are not trained that way and they were suppose to tell me multiple ways I can prove that I am a student. He promised me that this is not gonna happen anymore.
I did not fuck up, people5
How do you guys calculate complementary color?
I feel like I have a good algorithm but I also feel like I've been posting too much recently so I just want to know what you guys do to calculate complementary color.3
Fellow Android users:
Is there a live wallpaper which downloads images from a RSS feed and low-poly-ifies them, somewhere in the infinite wilderness of the Play Store?
There are a few low-poly wallpaper things that I've seen, but none with RSS.4
Has anyone used catch2? How do I pass the command line arguments to a test when I have test in a separate file. The supplying main yourself document is quite useless, it only tells you how to get the arguments but not how to pass it to tests. I saw people setting a global variable in main but it’s not working for me.
I wanted to build a platform for student who wants to do research and are having hard time finding a good professor within university or from outside, so naturally I started asking professor I knew and this is what I get:
Normally they will only hire students from within university unless student himself has funding, and even with that hiring students from outside is a lot of procedures.
And no, such platform probably won’t be that useful as they get a lot of emails asking about research.
Startup idea instantly killed.7
I'm trying to fins an application that can give me a ticker style news feed and pull prices off of poloniex.com. Poloniex does not natively provide an embedded RSS feed so that wouldn't work but I don't know what the other options.4
Is there a good tool I can use to design my UI with vuejs support
I am looking at bootstrap studio but since I will be using multiple JS script as well as .vue file, it doesn’t seem to be good.
Not coding rant
I forgot my student ID today and was trying to enter a building.
Called my friend to swipe me in
Security: nah you can't do that
Me: why, I'm a student here
Security: Weill that student id only shows that he is a student
Me: I can provide you my student ID number and state ID
Security: no, either you go get a new student ID now, or you can't enter the building
Wtf? I've asked other people to swipe me in before and the security didn't day shit
I went home and filed a report against that guy
Straight up abusing his power7
I do not know what an rss feed, heard it a lot but never bothered to check it. Am I a normie? Did my earlier life go to waste?4
Hey pals, do you know any good RSS feeds about programing,Unix,hacking,... ?
Can be in German or English.10
Once upon a time I was working with an engineer who loved sed and awk a bit too much. We had data stored in SharePoint that was retrievable via an RSS feed. Said engineer insisted on using curl to grab the feed and sed/awk to parse the HTML ...
I on the other hand suggested using libcurl (primarily for NTLM auth support) and parsing the RSS feed using libxml.
Which engineer do you think management decided supporting?
Hint: Reusability and maintainability were big requirements in this project.1
I spent 4 days making this:
Cleaning data, learning threejs, optimizing the search because threejs is slow as shit, etc
Tell me I’m awesome (please)
This is like a survey: for people Dodd research when in school, how much difficulty did you go through to find a good research position4
