"You should use Windows server!"
It was a high security project which needed to run very stable. Even the windows sysadmin looked at that guy like 'dude what the actual fuck'.27
So my landlord just came up and asked why I'm using so much bandwidth (they've just had a new line installed so they're monitoring it like hell for some reason) so we had a chat, I told him I'm a Web Developer so I'm uploading and downloading a load, and bare in mind this is student housing, he offered to install a wired connection in my flat only so I'll have a decent and stable connection when all the other students come back in September.
This is the first time in my life I feel like I'm not paying enough rent!8
Almost every really successfully project...is open source.
- The Chromium Engine
- All the Apache Stuff
- Unreal Engine(WAS closed source)
and so many more
Open Source is the best way to build known, stable and useful software30
I am really sorry to inform you guys that I fucked up the notifications of v1.3.1. You might not have noticed it but it doesn't update the notifications correctly sometimes.
I would urge the existing users to update the app to v1.3.3 which is the most stable version right now.16
This is how 1 Gbit/s internet looks like here in Russia. It’s amazingly stable and it costs $4/mo23
Got hired by a company. Their iOS application was shit and client was breathing down their neck. Basically got their application up to scratch. Now everything is stable and client is happy. And I get laid off + They owe me two months of pay. All I get from them are excuses. What is the lesson here?24
Feeling blessed, left the army after 5 years, 3 deployments, to attend 3 years of computer science school and get a stable lifestyle.
I've got a supporting girlfriend, mentally never felt better, and for the next 3 years, this is my seat and view in class !
Happy coding all, and have a nice day✌️8
- My client on regular day.
U can manage your tasks by your own. App looks stable and you are doing well.
- Same client when I'm on Vacation
This thing is not working, that thing is not working. This is do or die situation for us. you have to cancel your vacation plans.
- Same client after I come back from vacation in which I wasted precious hours of my vacation time and fixed all the bugs.
I didn't release your changes yet coz I wanted to release it together with you. I was like "THEN WHY THE FUCK YOU RUINED MY VACATION" -_-4
The problem with Linux... It's stable, you can get exactly the desktop experience you want out of it, BUUUUT, there's always an urge to tinker a little more, then you break everything and it takes hours to fix6
My family thinks I'm unemployed (I mostly freelance) and that I will soon suffer from starvation, even though I am making more money than most of my peers with stable jobs.
That feeling when you coded a temporary solution and its stable in production for 2years already..4
"For our app we are using Docker, so for the new server we will need a barebone Linux install"
"Oh please no, Linux is not for a stable server and is very hard to manage, let's install Windows Server 2002 and you can virtualize everything you want"
"Wait, we really can use our cpu cycles to something better..."
"Sorry, too late, already installing!"
Our sysadmin is a Microsoft integralist, we should RUN!20
Scheduled devRant maintenance - I'm going to be upgrading some infrastructure later and there will be some downtime, probably about 15 minutes, around 9pm EDT. Apologies for the inconvenience and devRant disruption :) It will help with working towards an even more stable service in the future.
Feel free to let me know if you have any questions!11
Got my VisionTek Radeon 7750 today! Held my breath during the amd drivers installation on Linux (KDE Neon) but it all went well.
Rebooted, all screens (4 right now? upgrading to 6 soon) black.
Closed eyes, opened after 10 seconds and BAM, first display is working.
After some settings tweaking I've got 4 monitors up and running now, waiting for new hardware for two more.
Also waiting for a hex monitor stand ❤.
AMD, thanks for providing stable and working drivers for Linux for free!14
Started working at a large company with promises of a great framework, stable environment and bleeding edge tools, decentralised working environment, only to find visual studio 2010, no git, no project management tooling whatsoever, all documentation stored on svn, no slack or other modern communications platform, still using uploaded word documents as documentation for projects and meetings, so yeah I can truly say :/11
It would be fun to answer "myself", but I'm a terrible boss.
As a freelancer you're also helpdesk, finance and marketing of your own little company, and I'm horrible at those things.
My current boss lets me boss myself within the company, while I still get to enjoy the luxuries of company life — completely shielded from annoying questions, with a stable predictable income.
I do believe that's the optimal structure: Hire people who can manage themselves, and have a drive to improve the company with minimal oversight.
Don't have true "bosses" at all, just some people who are good at bridging communication gaps between the islands of self-reliant teams.2
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've been wondering for a while, how the backend my team has to use could have so many issues. I was convinced they had no alerting system in place and have been commenting on it for a while now, and complaining about it.
Was on a Zoom call with one of the backend devs today, he shared his screen and had his email open. I saw a folder he had setup called alerts, and sub folders under that. One of them was named the name of the service/app we are using ... it had over 360,000 un-reads ... and emails are automatically deleted after 4 months in my company.
So they have alerts setup, they just don't care ... problem solved. Enjoy your weekend folks!2
Just got kicked out of home.
I was living by someone else and they just (politely) asked move out soon as I get paid next month.
They said I'm generating costs for them - goddamn I'm paying 50 bucks above our deal, why didn't she talk just talk to me, I would pay more if needed.
Now trying to realize what the Fuck I did wrong and how am I going to handle this. I have nowhere to go and just 2 weeks ago I got in debt, thinking home was stable.
Not angry, just extremely frustrated.21
Backend: Sorry the fix we had isn't going to work. Turns out app is sending an "undelivered" status after you call the API where you claimed we had an issue. This is in fact the cause, please address it.
Me: We do not have an "undelivered" status anywhere in our codebase. We do not do this.
Backend: *CC product* turns out this issue is only affecting 0.1% of users, its very minimal. Lets push ahead with the release.
Product: Ok, lets go live.
Me: ... ... ... we all just gonna ignore that "undelivered" bullshit? ... ok ... very stable release, here we go.3
Okay... I think I will just delete AppData to have a stable Windows installation.
"Lockheed Martin Will Replace F-35's Faulty Computer System With Cloud-Based Programs"
So apparently those jets have such a fucked software that the recommended workaround is to use them offline and only reconnect them once every 30 days to keep the system running. It's so bad that two air force bases went back to an older system and the Israeli air force also replaced it for their own F-35 jets.
And somehow those stable geniuses think the correct solution is to make everything more network-dependent and apparently already put Kubernetes on a different line of jets.
I just can't stop laughing.13
Perfect job is when sandbox and production api endpoints works the same.
Fuck all api endpoints where their sandbox works differently than the production.
Fuck all those error messages that appear only in production, despite faithfully following the documentations.
Fuck the gateways where their sandbox is more stable than the production.
Fuck the endpoints whose api parameters differ in what they accept between sandbox and production.
Fuck those manuals that does not document these diferrences.
Fuck those developers and support team who don't know how to support integrators. They don't even know how their apis work!9
- Release the stable v2 of devRant unofficial UWP
- Work on a new app
- Improve everyday and never give up1
Wtf. My mobiles 4 core CPU by default is clocked at 1190MHz. So I just wanted to see if I can over clock it a little (coz why not) and edited some stuff in my kernel. Now it runs stable at 2265MHz.... I mean.... Why the fuck didn't they apply that by default if its possible?13
Forgot to push to stable branch before I left from work. Nightly build takes 5 hours so I needed to do that in order to get nightly in the morning. As I'm moving I have only cellphone with 16k internet at home. Sounded like I'm screwed. But luckily fetching few new commits and pushing them back to correct branch git managed even over this parody of internet connection. Love git, I'm saved. Whole repo has few hundred megs, if I had to download everything it would be faster to wait to get real internet connection in few days.1
I am so break down to the level I told a scammer to scam me after when i am stable ..... wtf is happening to me?7
Update to my CGI library for C++:
i've finally written the docs, everything seems to run stable!
if anybody is crazy enough to try it out and leave some feedback, I take everything!
Going to love this new features. Hope it's any stable and will give other options instead of just Ubuntu.7
Stack Overflow ..Are you kidding ? . <3 people who code . We have a 10+ developers in team still not able to build stable product.9
More than a year ago, frustrated by a sub par experience of linux on my laptop (drivers), I planned to buy a MacBook to get a stable Unix platform.
But it was too expensive.
I convinced myself that it will pay for itself.
And today my app, i created on this laptop, has finally paid for it. :D
I am very happy.7
Me: oh awesome, wine 4.0 hit stable. Let's compile and see how fast we can break it!
*./configure && make*
Ok... Ok... It's been 40 minutes... Ok... Yep still going cool cool...
I think I need a new PC guys...10
I feel like I'm in an abusive relationship with Ubuntu.
I love it but whenever I'm with it it screws up my environment and doesn't work when I need it to.
I go back to Windows reluctantly and get everything set up and stable. I'm happy, but not excited about it. And then, within a few months, I get that thought. Maybe if I put enough work in I can make Ubuntu work for me as my main environment.24
Coworker called me up and shouted at me for refactoring code. "It might break!".
But his copy paste addiction is sure to make everything more stable, right?
Course, he still hasn't figured out that I'm the tech lead, so I will completely ignore his useless whining, as I have his boss on board.6
Hmmmm. Laptop in repair. Hinge broke. Well now im on old PC.
BIOS showed 1066Mhz RAM.
Its 1333Mhz RAM FFS.
Sets it to 1666Mhz by accident.
Didnt notice it and did all the usual stuff i do on PC.
After 6 hours i notice it. RAM runs cool.
Well overclocked fucking RAM and its stable. Nothing to complain about.
Lets overclock CPU now. 3Ghz dual core just isnt gonna cut it. AMD athlon II X2 250.
And yes this is Haxk20 for those wondering.14
Hmmm... the GNOME paradox: make a desktop that is total shit without extensions and themes. Provide no stable API for them. Break them upon every release.
Top it off claiming that themes are bad anyway because if not all Gnome installations look alike, that hurts your "brand recognition". WTF?!28
Today, I had an interview with a development company that they request all developers to wear suits for work! From 10 to 7 o'clock, and no stable income salary, they work based on projects LOL!13
Best 2017: that’s a tie:
- refinding devRant and feeling like this is the place I was missing from my life!
- getting to the end of the year with a stable and complete project, bring on next years insanity!
Worst: still working ( minor routine tasks ) during my annual leave!
Recently for a project I needed to read/write ID3 tags from MP3 files. And after a long search, I found this bloated, monolithic but quite stable library, "getID3".
So, I was looking through the code-base and I found this. This guy literally storing the key value based data embedded as comments within the class file. Then wrote a method to parse the data and even used caching to ensure maximum speed! And such usage is repeated all over the code-base.
So, this is what people used do before arrays were invented :314
WanBLowS Vusta is more stable than this piece of shit that you call code. Yet you call yourself a programmer? Goddammit, even the shit that I dump in the toilet looks better. Because at least that thing is honest about being shit, unlike this craptacular mess that you call an application. Maybe consider kill -9 $(pidof life).3
Just had someone try to tell me that Windows programs are more stable in WINE than in Windows. Haha no.6
Dear new devs/me five years ago:
Practice the 30 second rule-- Whatever brilliant thing that your about to say, just think on it for minimum of 30 seconds. Is it still a brilliant idea? Then share. Else trash it 😉
43, I was in college with chance for an scholarship. Got instructed to get the best possible grades, and teachers kept telling me to do better. Did 3 tests in a row, and went to hospital in the 4th one. Doctor said that the amount of coffee and meds I had took could've killed me if I was not lucky.
P.S.: After I got my grades and asked about my scholarship I was told that they gave it to another person that was "more stable" and "healthy"...
P.S.: I don't know if this counts as working6
Vue vs React...
Which one do you guys use or like better?
I'm been dabbling in Vue and like it so far...just wondering if I'm putting myself in a pigeon hole against a 'more widely adopted and stable' framework
Why the fuck did you guys change my vps to read only file system.
WHAT IS FUCKING WRONG WITH YOU, THIS IS LIKE THE 6TH TIME.
What do you expect to tell my clients?
I should look into if I have legal rights to migrate everything to a more stable provider.
Sick and tired of having issues because other people fck up. It's a shame I have been using this provider for 5 years without any problems. And now servers left and right start having problems.22
My Project Manager to me, after attending his first ever Hackathon of life
PM : Did you see, how people create a full project in a day,
So it is POSSIBLE and here you always complain about the deadlines
Me : Yeah true :|
Of Course it is possible to create a well documented, bugs free, features enriched, stable and properly structured project in a day
My Bad :/1
I fucked again...
This is second time I've accidentally executed sudo poweroff on test server via ssh assuming it was my machine :(
It's all because my mind was not stable as we were testing few issues on test server and at the same time from client side someone was doing the changes from Admin side(Wordpress) and we saw menu and few text got disappeared.
Such a bad day. smh11
A vendor gave us what is turning out to be a very stable storage appliance/software, so we're happy for that. But even so, disks fail. So we need an automated way to identify, troubleshoot, isolate, and begin ticketing against disk failures. Vendor promised us a nice REST API. That was six months ago. The temporary process of SSHing(as root) to every single appliance(60-200 per site, dozens of sites) to run vendor storage audit commands remains our go-to means of automation.6
Damn! I never thought resigning from first company is not easy.
The team was amazing, overall culture was great. But after working for 2 years and making product stable enough, the learning curve started to flatten.
Decided to move on, last day was most painful. Sitting on the chair, wondering whether I did the right thing. All the memories flash black on that day. Nervous but little bit excited. Kinda mixed feelings
But turned out that job switch was even better. Good pay + one hell of learning to build product from scratch.7
Why fix tomorrow, what you can write properly today!
Seriously, why does everything have to be [M]otherfucking [V]omit [P]rojectiles and dealt with later when it falls apart, rather then spending that extra few hours / days making it fucking stable now, instead of months some where in the future.
Excuse me, I have yet another foreseeable fire to put out.1
So now that i have update half of GNOME on Arch to 3.31 i rebooted a system. And when it boots up im greeted with an broken TV screen with Oh no.
Well thats not good.
After 12 minutes in openbox i noticed that MESA is fucked up and glxinfo is reporting shit. Ohhhhhhhhh i know.
llvm-svn updated and now mesa cant find path to it. Ohhhh yeah.
*/Compiles latest mesa in 2 minutes/*
Boom GDM shows up. OK we are still good.
Weird but its actually stable tbh.
But damn was i worried that i broke some package.5
"Will update my Android app I" thought.
"Haven't updated it in 2 years and summer vacations are here so now's the time", I thought.
Opened Android Studio. It notified me of an update for the IDE. "I'll update it, because (stable) IDE updates are always good", I thought.
Then it notified me of updates to the SDK and libraries. "I'll update those too, because (stable) SDK and library updates are always good", I thought.
Then it notified me to update to the latest recommended version of Gradle. "I'll update that too, because (stable) Gradle updates are always good as they almost always reduce build time", I thought.
"Now I can finally get to updating my app", I thought. But no!
Gradle then tells me that the compileSdkVersion needs to be the latest, so I change it to 26. Done? Not so fast!
It then tells me that targetSdkVersion should match the compileSdkVersion or else some compatibility modes would apply, and I didn't want that, so I change it too to 26. Then it tells me that I would also need to update the support libraries to v26. I do that too. And then when I sync the project files with Gradle, what does it tell me? THAT IT FAILED TO RESOLVE ANY OF THE UPDATED LIBRARIES! Not even the initial version (26.0.0), neither it's alpha nor it's beta. Now I'm stuck searching on StackOverflow and elsewhere about updating the libraries and all, when I just really want to update my app :/
Can't this whole IDE, SDK, Gradle and library update process be automated, and that too in the background, so that I can do exactly what I really want to do rather than waste so much of my time on this nonsense?! If it can't, then I want to work on making that happen first before anything else. Because seriously, "This sucks! Why did I even update any of this?", is what I now think.3
As long as the couch does what it should and is stable, I think it's a good code. Programming means knowing what the computer does before it knows it.
Heaven for programmers:2
For the coming few months, refactoring my entire life. Everything will be redone with modularity in mind. So far it seems to be working well. Once the foundations are stable, I could start focusing further on the development of my Linux distribution. Hopefully that'll be done soon.6
Finally, I've installed everything I need in Fedora 24. It is now stable and has all the tools I need for development.
Oh, look. Elementary OS loki is out
So I spent the last two days wondering WTF I did wrong, because my Laptop (Debian STABLE mind you...) would only boot in read-only mode and therefore only TTY (which btw sucks donkey-balls on a 4k screen (see image for visualization)) but on the earlier Kernel 4.9.0-7, everything was dandy.
So apparently laptop-mode-tools managed to fuck shit up in a way yet unknown, but as soon as I yeeted that bitch off my harddrive, everything was working flawlessly again...9
Really hate when people say development for Linux is really difficult, especially when it comes to game development and porting engines...
It really isn't, it's no more difficult to bloody windows and personally think it's easier than Mac development. Worse comes to, mono exists and is pretty damn stable, getting something ported to Linux really isn't as difficult as people try and make it out to be -,-15
a client today wanted a specialized high performance, extremely stable, stock management software for pharmaceutical products, he also wants the software distributed, cross platform, and expect the delivery to be in a week or so, oh and did i mention that he also wants it to have an extremely good looking ui,
he got offended that i said you can only have one or two of those things not all of them,
for context, I'm just a freelancer not a big company and doing what he wants is impossible for me, also it was a billion ages since i worked on anything desktop related, web is all I'm diving into lately7
Searching for random Linux bug.. finds Gist with exact match (thinking, WOW, thanks Google!)..
It's a 2000+ line log dump. : |3
A classmate saw me using Firefox today and laughed at me saying Chrome is more secure. I'm not very knowledgeable about the security; I use Firefox because it uses less memory and it's more stable on my machine.
I doubt that info of his is current so can someone who actually knows about the security give me some counter-arguments for him? The more facts the better :D16
I suck with the ladies :( I turned 25 last week and have only dated 1 girl because my retarded ass decided to ignore dating until I have time and my situation is stable and now that I'm old and don't know how to get into a relationship I'm starting to regret my past decisions...25
When you're sick of Arch Linux ability to brick your system and you try to install a more stable distro like Linux mint.18
My thoughts on Windows:
Xp: fairly decently stable
Vista: OK wtf
7: what vista should have been. (The best one imo)
8.1: an attempt to fix trash
10: slightly less trash with more stupidifying4
I've had people tell me Windows 10 is the most stable and least buggy Microsoft OS yet. I want to disagree.7
Just fucking amazing. Updated llvm-svn to latest version and what do i fucking get ? Wayland and Xorg broken !
Just fucking fucking fucking amazing.
Now im running the stable version. FFS im Haxk20 i do not run stable versions. This is pure madness. The performance drop is driving me fucking crazy.36
Just had an interview for a position similar to mine in another company.
It was a breath of fresh air that the team lead was open and honest...
It’s not the best position but it’s stable Work that I’m good at, he was up front that it’s not the shiniest thing to work on but that there’s huge opportunity to grow.
His behaviour alone is why I’ll give the position strong consideration.
When you’re interviewing: don’t sweep anything under the rug, be up front about the job and at the least you’ll gain the respect of your candidate.1
Made the mistake of training my ML model in VirtualBox... Over 18 hours so far, and loss < 1 is nowhere near stable.1
I've been using Ubuntu 14.04 since it was first released until this moment (June 2018). What a stable OS i've ever used. Thank's Linux, you're free & awesome.
Thank Mr. Trusty & Tahr1
I once single-handedly developed an entire drag-and-drop ui for creation, provisioning and control of virtual datacenters and all its infrastructure. Other people developed backend and database and the whole project took about 10 months, but about three weeks before we had a working, stable release the company decided to cancel an entire project.
We thoroughly researched the market, and at that time there was no better such solution. We would have made something extraordinary.
Especially because it worked with VMWare.
Fuck 4 wheel X axis on 3D printer.
3 wheel is just way to go.
Stable, Awesome, Fast
Sure Sure it's not as good as bearing rails or some other crap but i will upgrade to that in time.
Shit shit shit. I forgot to tighten the belts.
Well end of rant.7
If it crashes, it's linux :/
Even the OS installation crashes, they call it stable release with LTS.11
So management wants this:
As soon as a customer reports a bug, management wants to have an "emergency button" to let their inexperienced hands make production fall back to the last stable version, without having to pass through IT and wait for them to fix it. If the server catches a 500 error, this process should be done automatically. All because they don't want to give us more time writing more thorough tests...11
I am so fucking happy with the windows October update!
Never thought I'd be able to say the stable windows 10 builds are more unstable and prone to fatal errors than a rolling release Linux distro, now if only more Devs would port there fucking software to Linux *eye twitches*7
Why OneDrive is so slow?
It took almost an hour to load the whole page of 1.2 GB of photos.
Yes, my internet connection was stable that time. Thank you.
You say my ROM is crashing and is unstable ???
How dare you ?
I have spent 1 fucking month running it daily just to test it and its freaking stable and fast even after 1 month of hard use and lots of apps.
So sorry but i cant fix that you are fucking stupid and cant read flashing instruction properly.5
"Yes, the work could have finished way earlier. But it's easy, and I would have probably been bored of it and left earlier"
Finally got the reason why our fucking CTO couldn't create a fucking stable Backend for almost a year while the frontend team got all the slack because certain things are still not functioning well and while the marketing team every fucking time got their face red while showing the demo because the fucking api is not stable. Seriously, we wasted a whole year just because you could write something more interesting and enjoyable. Fuck you. Never been this willing to murder someone.
Context: A simple booking platform. No need for creating a complex distributed system while our userbase may not even be in million even on a peak season.
And he laughily commented maintaining it would be a headache.
I could seriously kill someone right now.2
Xamarin.Forms be like
Carousel Page is depreciated and will be removed soon. Use Carousel View.
Carousel View was removed from stable release channel because we felt it was ready.
I'm not going outside until like 3 months after they lift the restrictions. I'll let y'all deal with the bugs and crashes and resurgences. I'm not really an early adopter. I'm gonna wait until they release outside 4.2 the stable patch1
You always think of the young buck, fresh-out-of-school hotshot devs as being the ones who are obsessed with chasing the Hot New Thing at the cost of stability and maintainability, but our head of front end is old enough to be my father and he's only getting worse and worse about forcing buzzword compliance on the company. New framework every six months. New language every two years. Containers on VMs on cloud boxes. I've got milk in my fridge that's older than our tech stack and probably twice as stable.
Apparently age only brings wisdom if you're capable of giving a fuck.6
Designed and written > 1.3k lines of code this week and 98% test coverage..
CI and CD set up and working..
Was a Long week and very exhausting but I feel really good now, happy to start the weekend with whiskey and beer.
This is gonna be one of my most productive sprints so far..
Hope you all had a successful week as well.
Happy Friday 🍻
And please don’t start with any „that’s nothing, I’ve written 5k lines ones“ comments.. It‘s professional, stable, optimized code and code I can actually be proud of.6
All is well in 2020 and claiming today will be my year.
1 updated my curriculum vitae and send my resignation love letter
2 hopefully be hired in a stable company and earn enough that can suffice my needs and wants as I moved out from my big sis home. Thank you ^_^
3 move into my long awaited own house for a couple of weeks. Thanks patience and perseverance ^_^
4 self study for freelance projects
5 settle down
I need a new OS.
I have one year of Kubuntu, one year of Fedora KDE and there years of Arch Linux (Openbox, KDE, i3wm).
Now I'm undecided between debian and Arch Linux as a stable System.
What do you guys recommend me?
I hate picking huge software from AUR and need to compile it, but i hate having always a, yes stable package, but under versioned...
(and, exist a Debian minimal without everything Archstyle?)15
"Helvetica is like a really good friend. You go off and hang with the other fonts (the artsy, grungy, trendy, thin, fat, tall, scripty types) and even use them a little, but helvetica is always there. A nice stable friend." - Andrew Frigo3
Thanks google for giving me the opportunity to work with neural networks without being an expert about them.
To sum it up:
1. Preprocess data
2. Use Automl to train classifier
Hotel wifi: Weak signal of a slow wifi that works once per 10 minutes
*goes to diff hotel*
New hotel wifi: Weak but stable signal that is fast and works all the time; admin:admin1
I want to lose some weight and tone some dormant muscles. So I decided that I'll do some pushups and crunches every time I run into a bug with which I'm struggling. Seeing as I write more bugs than stable code, I should be ripped in no time.2
Day 0: thank you for being an Amazon Customer, your database is about to be upgrade in the near future with or without your consent! Tough titties motherfucker!
Day 16: ok, every upgraded by hand in the test environment, everything seems stable, let's go make preparations for production!
Day 16.5: ssh user@<prod_bastion_ip> --yada --yada
Unable to connect
Oooook, let's try again,
Unable to connect
Day 16.5.1: WHY THE FUCK NOT, the IP is fucking right, the cert is right, the user is right, the..... fucking.... EC2 instance has been......... terminated.....
Why! why can't people leave things alone.
Excuse me while I hit the bourbon 🥃
Flutter 1.0 is announced and they even planned to make Flutter for the web in the form of Hummingbird. Exciting times.5
Ok that's nice and all Google but how about you fix the fucking UI, laggy interfaces, janked and half baked tablet mode and just all round fix what you broke from chromeOS 70 onwards?
You know.. make sure things are stable before pretty?5
I just switched from Arch to Fedora...
I know I know that all the cool kids use arch, but right now I'm not up for checking out random gdm bugs or some other manual tasks. I need a stable, fairly supported and well maintained distro and fedora just works!12
Tried several Linux distros and every single one has performance issues for some reason while Windows is stable. I am confused and can't find the reason for it. I like Linux very much but it's unusable for me.32
Oh my god. I woke up and read stan lee was rushed to the hospital. I was actually feeling horribly sad and then I read that he was in stable condition and was like heck yeah!!! No one taking him yet.
Damn, I really love programming. ❤️
It's way more uplifting and satisfactory than having a significant other.
Even my botched WP installs are more stable than most pseudo-longterm relationships nowadays.
Oh yeah and another thing:
How is it so extremely hard or even impossible for a lot of women to admit their own fucking wrongdoings to a close person?
guys/gals, I need your wisdom. Especially from the ones owning startups.
How do you juggle between your project and work at some company (stable income source)? Accelerators, personal financers (mom, pops, best-bud swimming in $$$s, some fat guy in the neighbourhood, etc.), or do you simple multitask btwn daily job and your project?
I'm trying the latter but it's nearly impossible to do anything productive at home after 9 hours at office..3
This weekend I'm going to attempt to write an application that I'm missing right now. (It might exist already but hey, I'm in for a programming challenge)
I'll probably have a stable backend within the hour, the frontend is going to be 'fun', though 😅
And yes, I'll be using a frontend framework because otherwise I could just as well quit right fucking now.
Its been a while, this is going to be fun!20
Spent 4 hours trying to figure out why my expressjs application wasn't working in my environment but DevOps loads it just fine. Turns out there's a difference between ^ and ~ on dependency version requirements. I was loading latest versions of nunjucks and NodeJs instead of stable.
What is life.2
Work thrives best when there is a stable flow of calm energy. Code a little, relax a little. Stress does little for productivity, from my point of view.6
So I had a piece of software crash on me earlier today...
I think "No problem, this was built internally and I saw the source code somewhere around here. 👍"
Locate source code...6 folders ("Project--v1.0--stable-2012", "Project 1.0", "Project 2.0", and a few others like it). Took me 20 minutes just to figure out which folder was used to build the project/exe. Turns out, none of the above. 👎
Had these people never heard of source control before?! 😣2
No! I don’t have any problems that you are deprecating various libs that I used in my software. Just don’t fucking insist that your code is production ready and stable and backward compatible. Please
Best: chief university lab position, 12 yrs as a 👨🏫 system engineer teacher, really need a break, updating me as a pro.
Worst: last chief just left email with CISCO passwords. No F* VLANS reference, no technical manual, deleted all Sh* documents on PC.
So I about 4 days no internet on university, reseted 25+ CISCO switches, reorganizing fibers, all week 💤 6am-11pm or more. VTP server core nice and clean, nice VLans, ClearOS formated an licensed, ubnt portal for Wifi.
December, organizing all the administrative stuff. We are back stable and documenting. Moving and painting office, delegation of staff.
Now in vacations with a “tepache 🍻 “ 🍍2
Aaaand this made me cringe.
When you are being a good slave and filling in one of those in chrome official stable release on ubuntu GNOME...
It's saying I either need chrome, firefox or internet explorer...
Rolled out a new application I built almost entirely by myself 2 days ago... But my dev group is understaffed and has a project manager who is literally the most clueless person I have ever met, so as a result, we don't have a functional/useful dev/test/prod framework and no standards for how to deploy apps. So my past 2 days were comprised of fixing bugs in the live system that could probably have been caught if I had the time and resources to get everything thoroughly tested. It's stable now, but damn our management for being generally idiots. Our motto appears to be "Fuck it, we'll do it live"1
Just succesfully converted my entire app from using web scraping data fetching to direct API by reverse-engineering their android app to get to their private API
App is running much faster and more stable now, feels good3
Linux mint is being a little shit. I can't safely eject my flash drive without "emptying the trash?!!!!" I don't remember if previous versions were more stable. This isn't the first time dumb shit stopped working. Should I install an old version or jump distros?12
My boss: now that the other project is stable, you can start working on this new one. It has to be built from scratch in Angular.
Me: is there any particular reason we have to make it in Angular? Last one in React+Redux worked very well and I am getting used to it.
My boss: Just to give it a try.
And Angular steep learning curve is not even the worst part. Lack of design and direction is.2
Today the version that those monsters call stable, decided to not render UI text (canvas) in a project I had to upgrade from an older version.
But it performs this practical joke (that stable software must do) only in the fucking editor.
How am I making sure that the text aligns? Ah, just moving the anchor positions, changing the font size, binary fucking searching for the right position for alignment by moving n pixels at a time, and exporting a webgl build and running it to make sure it's aligned
We're shifting to Unreal next year. I'll make sure of it3
For as long as the world needs computers to do complicated stuff, it'll need good, skilled developers to tell them what to do.
Good, skilled developers don't come easily or cheaply, so they can command a hefty premium, both in terms of job perks & salary.
So putting that together - a well paid, good job in a reasonably stable field? Sign me up.1
Deciding whether to stick to being a web developer, or switch to something else
(thinking more like rocket software, or something with security (but maybe sticking with web), or some other cool sh#t
I don't know yet, what I do know is even when I'm creating an erp system, I find it very unsatisfying
"I helped create the software on that rocket"
"that hospital uses the system I've helped to create"
Sounds a lot more satisfying than,
"that company uses my 'warehouse resources manager'/'webshop'/'planning system'
But then again I don't know, I now have a stable job, know what to do and know the language we use.1
Just created a tiny (not yet stable) selector library that allows you to change properties on multiple elements just like you would do on a single one. It also has some more useful features. https://github.com/kosimst/kazel
Still in development, but prototype should work. What do you think?6
I think I may be ending my distro hopping here (for a while anyway). Linux Lite looks pretty good, seems stable, isn't bloated af, works good OOTB (finally, a distro other than Ubuntu in which WiFi works just fine), and is decently hackable. I've been using it on and off for a bit, finally replaced Manjaro with it.8
Working from home is a cool experience for me, but video meetings are a hassle. Not because of the nature of the meeting, but because I need to be sure that certain giant pillow is not visible for the webcam.
Also, for some reason I'm the only one with a stable connection, so there's a large overhead of asking and nobody talking, because we don't know what just happened3
I don't understand why (or even how) I'm expected to be productive without a stable internet connection.
My computer doesn't have WiFi capabilities and the ethernet connection sucks too.
So, here I am passing time while waiting for Gitlab to load...2
If you call yourself a developer or consider yourself part of the IT world and at the same time complain about software updates (all those dumb windows update rants) then do one of the following:
1- write a multi -million line of code OS that runs on virtually unlimited number of PC configurations and hardware and get the code right the first time with no major bugs, no security vulnerabilities, and a consistently fast and stable performance.
2- stop calling yourself a dev, or part of the IT world.
If the last 2 options are unreasonable, unachievable, or unfathomable.... Then stop bitching about software updates.23
This is an anti-rant...
I had a problematic arch-dwm setup which i've been struggling with for a looong time, and when i thought i still needed quite some time to solve all issues, yesterday i somehow managed to hit the right solutions for each problem in a single evening. My setup is now in its most stable and usable state ever, and rsynced to a flash drive. I am no longer forced to use windows for my daily needs.
Praise be to holy gnu and holy tux! Do you think maybe i should sacrifice some electronics for the souls of st. ritchie, st. thompson, st. stallman and st. torvalds?2
>ooo new thing to play with and learn, yay!
>*Installs using directions*
>Hello world program fails
>Oh I need these dependencies
>Wait the deps all need their own deps...
>But one of them is deprecated.. what do?
I love the feeling of working on something new but
I hate ending up spending more time getting a workflow setup and chasing down random bugs or hacky fixes just to get something stable so I can start working!!!1
Look who is here!!
First of all, when was it ever stable and I can bet nightmare for front end developer has just begun.5
PC just crashed midgame amd started to bootloop afterwards... i guess my 1070 is not so stable :/ not even getting video signal anymore..3
Gotta love those moments when you expand your code and the legacy part magically works just fine. Congrats, past me, for writing a stable core.1
I am a senior .net developer and I should be promoted to a software architect over Java and .net soon, and my parents independently asked my wife and me if my job was stable. They also asked me if I was worried about losing my job. They have no idea what I do and they think it is nuts that I get paid what I do for the hours I work... I doubt they will ever get it.2
this is my cousin😎, his name is Gentoo(named after linux distro Gentoo(named after penguin species called Gentoo))
I suggested his name, all my folks thought that it's a cool name.
* he's now 10yrs. old, very stable, photo is taken with his permission6
Why the hell is Unity so bad at Linux, I just created a new project and it crashed everytime. Now I’m using Godot Engine, good things open source and stable.11
Smashed the screen on my beloved LineageOS Moto G4 last night.
(Alcohol may be partly to blame.)
Any suggestions for a cheap Android phone with a stable release of LineageOS?7
Every data communication example has Alice and Bob communicating with each other. I wonder after all these years how are they able to maintain a stable relationship.
I wish my girlfriend understood this.
Somehow, shit's more fucked up on Debian systems for me than it is on Arch. Debian's supposed to be the stable one, and Arch the one that breaks, but nah.6
Oracle, please get your crap together.
If you really wanted to make an amazing replacement for Java swing, you could have made the scene builder application for javafx not crash every 15 minutes on macOS. Seriously. I can't go more than a half hour without it freezing up and/or having the window disappear, never to open again. I get that it's a complicated program, but it's 10 YEARS OLD. It should have been stable by now.4
It was the only company which used to provide great budget android smartphone with stock android and regular updates. (ranting this on my Moto G3) But from moto G3, they fucked up with promised android OS upgrade (shitty Lenovo)
Microsoft (for fucking with windows 10):
Still remember that first stable build of windows 10 released in 2015. After the first update they never stopped fucking with user's computer with different bugs. Still I haven't seen any build as stable as first one.1
Nothing stops you from experimenting out like a highly stable system. Never let stability become a plateau.
Didn't found a simple mutpli currency read only wallet viewer to just quickly have a glance the current courses and your balances, so I wrote it quickly (and dirty) by my own 😋
Planning to write a stable Sail application of this idea
Why does it feel like nobody uses D?
I love it. It combines the best bits of C++, Java, Ruby and even some Python. It still is C ABI and C++ ABI (ish) compatible. It can do everything you need it to. It's not limited like Java. It feels cleaner than C. I LOVE IT. But I don't understand why there's not much going on about it. Is it because it's not 100% stable yet? I don't know. AAAARGH7
KDE is pissing me off!! So many fucking bugs. I used to like it but it just gets buggier every time and now its just a pain to use it.
What window manager is a solid alternative that is convenient and STABLE? I've used Gnome before but also had some issues. Currently don't wanna go with i3. I am using Manjaro what would you recommend me?8
How stable is Linux 5, beacuse the company I work for wants me to build a course on Linux 5 administration 👀👀👀32
NodeJS C++ add-on is one of the best and worst thing ever to exist in NodeJS.
Writing a native add-on is such a fucking pain. It's full of inconsistent API. They are trying to fix that by the introduction of N-API. But that shit is still in experimental mode.
I want to use nan but I know that that is also going to be deprecated once the N-API gets stable.
After a year using ElementaryOS, I'm planning to switch to another distribution.
I'm planning to go on Linux Mint (I need a stable machine with all the tools I need easily installable)
Now, I have to choose between KDE and XFCE. I've used KDE a little but I didn't get the point of all those widgets but I'm still open-minded. I've used a pure version of XFCE that was shitty-looking but was good at use.
Can you give me your opinion on both Desktop Environment?13
Wine 3 stable was released this week. A ton of games just popped up as 100% playable. If there was ever a time to go over to Linux full-time, this is it.7
If they want me to play with a stable connection so bad, maybe they could've not put the weakest available wifi antenna in their console?
Anyway I finally found out I can use my phone as a repeater so that's nice.11
someone asked for a stable nix distro, and i noticed too many google hits that recommend _arch_
do they not know what stable means?
stab-le, as in running consistently and not crashing. updating without any bullshit and breaking.
why is arch #1 on so many list?
gtfo. what is wrong with you people!?!?!17
Got an idea that needed prototyping, remembered that people always said Bootstrap is a good UI framework for quick prototyping. Had a doubt though, as the last time I checked Bootstrap sucks.
I ended up wasting hours to make it work with webpack. Turned out it still sucks.
The most irritating thing was they tell people to install the latest beta, or even alpha version on their website, not the stable one. Who the fuck would do that?
When you do the bare `npm install bootstrap`, it will install the latest stable version, but the docs page defaults to the... guess what, the latest beta version. I wasted nearly an hour just to figure out why the styles weren't working like the examples in the docs.3
Ran an app release yesterday, adding some new stuff and fixing a few bugs. Was scared this morning because APM didn't have any errors and the app was already in use by half of the userbase.
Turns out it's the most stable release so far! Day's all good again :D
I work in a company, where prototypes become instantly a product... People are far from being an expert in the technologies we use (technologies which were chosen by management without any further research).
Timeframes are more than short, so there is no chance to learn what you need to know to be able to create something really maintainable and stable.
Guess what - that shit is going to be installed at the customer site, where neither we nor them know what to fucking do if something breaks ...
Update on my Minecraft server if anyone is interested, recently just setup a test server to work out requirements, so if anyone has windows 10 edition of any form of iOS or Android Minecraft PE feel free to try it...
Just let me know how stable things seem and if you have any issues connecting (it constantly gets stuck on trying to find server but will connect if you try .-.)8
Does anyone else fall into the 'TODO' trap? I just finished my website (using jekyll) and I've got a stable build that I like and I should probably start writing content for it but at the same time, it would be cool to set up a better color scheme and refactoring the css into sass. Anyone else get caught in the trap?3
Just got sad news this week, we could work less and earn less or after a few days some of us might even lose their job, the economy is not stable because of covid 19. I have mixed feelings about what is going on.12
Welp. Time to ditch windows entirely! It's outlived it's usefulness, so my last windows computer is getting converted! So let's start a flamewar! To all the nonpurists out there, a question! Manjaro vs antergos? (I love arch but I'll be damned to have all my systems broken. I want at least one semi stable system)9
Not just dev goals.
-Stable relationship with [Redacted]
-Finish my projects
-Get new SSD
-Finally get paid for the DLR project
-Not fucking up my exams
-Finish my blacksmithing idea/project
-Play a good game that's not Destiny2
-Think positively for once4
our school says...
This school homepage was developed in 2008 as a builder.
IE7 was the main browser at the time of 2008, but now IE11 is being used as the main browser.
We are currently working on developing a school website builder that is suitable for modern browsers and sequentially converting all schools into new builders by December 2017.
Therefore, please use the Chrome browser to use and operate stable website when accessing the school website.
But WHY ISN'T IT WORKING IN CHROME, EITHER???!!!!1
Weekend thought: What counts as stable in development?
From my experience it seems that "stable" is a relative concept. My linux server is "stable" in the sense that the packages are tested for a long period of time before release, but my home distro is a rolling release and that is also stable in my opinion. So which is it? Can it be both? Or maybe we're just lying to ourselves that anything is stable.
When I'm developing web applications I always have this rule that is the user can't enter and exit the application without a major error coming out, it isn't ready for production. Once that's out of the way, from my point of view the application is stable. But if I were to present this to a company would they think the same? Probably not.
What do you think counts as a stable production release?2
Reading all your rants I'm glad my parents always supported me. They even helped to pick a good university and paid my dormroom all 6 semesters. I'm the first in the whole family who got a degree at university and I think they are very proud I have a stable job and a good income.
Though I doubt they know how rare (good) programmers are here and how much job offers I'm getting each week 😄
i swear to GOD i am so fucking productive, happy, full of life, thankful to live, WAY MORE PRODUCTIVE, WAY MORE NORMAL, WAY MORE PHYSICALLY BEAUTIFUL, WAY MORE MENTALLY STABLE, i get WAY MORE SHIT DONE, i appreciate people, i help people, i ACTUALLY BECOME SUCCESSFUL, i am actually WILLING TO LEARN ADVANCED SHIT THAT ARE BEYOND MY UNDERSTANDING *BECAUSE* IT IS SOMETHING I ENJOY TO FUCKIN DO, WAY MORE FUCKIN POSITIVE, WAY MORE FUCKIN SOCIAL, all of this --- when i do NOT fucking study or go to the fucking cuckold college.....5
Guy told me Java Swing is more stable and has more effective look than JavaFx. Okay mate, I'm sure. 😒
-- Who are we?
-- What we want?
A #stable project environment.
-- What do we say to project #dependencies?
so RC build are supposed to be more stable then -next right ? I have my doubts at this point. 4.20rcx gives me start job always. Trying -next kernel and what in the world is this. CLEAN boot. didnt test again since yes its -next and while every piece of hardware was working the display cut off and had to reboot. What do i expect from unstable kernel right ? But the fix to this is most likely in -next. If it ofcourse wasnt just a luck that it booted up.1
Fuck Android Studio updates. Why you morons call it a "STABLE" update when its clearly not? -_-
You guys ruined the layout editor -_- But you guys also left no way to use the older version nowadays.
Fuck you Google!!!
Still waiting for the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to be re-released or declared stable to go ahead, format and start over on my laptop.
Also still having trouble when using ZIP files 😑5
Never “try” to optimise just a bit more just for your own sake if the customer doesn’t ask you too. The next day you may be working on getting the service up and stable again on your holiday day :-(2
@dfox Wouldn't it be better if there were limited amount of push notifications if user haven't seen the previous ones yet? I commented on some popular rant and when I got to a stable connection, the phone vibrated like crazy for at least 15s :D It was awesome btw.1
I often have the problem of messing up my Linux installation, it gets unstable or the desktop envoirment gets slow / unresponsive
I want to switch to Ubuntu (with budgie) for quite a while but I'm afraid I mess up my system again...
Any tips for an inexperienced Linux person? tips to keep your system healthy and stable, tings to avoid when installing (like adding unofficial ppa...)
Thank you in advance 💙
(also how do you deal with errors? Do you just search the internet and try it out? ((and yes, I did brick a few installations 'trying it out')) 😅)7
Yay, I just finished the first stable-version of my configuration-manager wento. (Its only for nix-like OSes)
If you want to try it (or to break it),
You can find it on
(For Linux x64, the latest release contains a binary-version, for other eg. BSD,GNU..., you have to compile it yourself)
Just wrote the first part of what will become a rather large Go project!
Almost the whole thing is gonna be pluggable, which adds an extra challenge, but nevertheless, the is gonna be a fun ride!
Also, it's gonna be Open Source, but until I'm at a reasonably stable version, I'm gonna be leaving it closed. Lmk if you're looking for something to do and want to join, this is gonna be a big project.7
I'm so disappointed about these day developers, they rather make web than native app. Google technologies ? pls. The only reason why they afraid to make app on the windows 10 is losing customer of their crappy Chrome OS, oh not to mention they don't even have the stable SDK for their native solution on the ChromeOS. So they trick developers to make web more than native, PWA, SPA ? why dont you just make a native windows applications ????4
Super curious: Ive broken my arch frequently. And then fix it and go on with my day. Or an update causes some weird package confliction because I used pip instead of pacman for one library or whatever.
But I keep hearing from different sources that "arch being super unstable is a myth. It never happens!" Okay surely not all the time, my system is usually pretty good but:
Do you people never `pacman -Syyu` ?
How have you not broken everything?! Or do you just pretend like the AUR (the best thing ever and also the source of most of my problems) doesn't exist? What black magic are you doing to appease the arch gods?10
New update available on your phone...
Wait people to teste it before installing. It look stable, ok i will install it
After the update
Fucking shit the clock is on the left side 🤮 what the fuck is this shit android... The settings menu is now a ducking mess. The finger print scan is so slow i can cooke an egg before he unlock the phone. The multi tasking screen is like iphone and look like a garbedge. Some applications rushing running.3
received two job opportunities today.
Company A - a startup company that aims to provide SAAS.
Company B - MNC, current product is stable and making money. They plan to move to SAAS later on (but not yet confirm)
Which should I join? Please advise~~10
What really is the supossed advantage of GNU hurd over Linux? I am not at all into it, I just randomly read about it being in development since the 90s and still not being stable. We have Linux as a functioning and open-source OS alreadey. So really, whats the point?5
Just curious on whether or not to open source something or not...
As some would have seen I'm working on a game engine/framework and putting a lot of effort into the development terminal (lumber camp) and had a fair few people show interest in it so thought I might chuck it on GitHub as I go but I don't want to allow for merging until the main component is at version 1 and stable...
Should I release as I go and not do merging or wait till it is at version 1?4
To be out of this miserable shitty rut I'm in and build a stable life (I've just decided I'm definitely going to try and do this, I've had enough of this shit)
Maybe some of you will find this useful.
I just finished the first stable version of my JSON-library for Go.
It provides a DOM-like interface for JSON-documents.4
I've been waiting for Crystal to go v1 for like 84 years and now it's gone v1 but wait - still not stable & still not recommended for production.
What the fucking fuck? We have soft openings for programming languages now?4
so, any EE here?
I'm a self-taught EE (shots fired! I was told to call myself an "inventor" so I don't offend my dear EE friends!)
Anyways... I just made a huge insight that wanted to share!
in the circuit that has been breaking my head for the past couple of days (switching DC-DC [boost, buck] converter the inductor takes care of holding the current stable while the capacitor the voltage. (apart from an low-pass filter...) The higher the frequency the smaller the capacity of the inductor needed, the less amount of wire, less resistance, more watts!!!!!11
Fuck fuck fuck
Linux mint disconuting kde version
18.3 will be last version with official mind kde 😭
I always prefer mint kde rather than kubuntu
In my own experience I always found mint kde more stable than kubuntu
And I loved mint update software
Probably go with the now kde neon or back to elementary !
I used elementary for 2 years or so I installed kde mint last year and that's what I like the most now 😒
Not a gnome fan
Will try arch again 😄
Manjaro kde is good too so.4
Download link is labeled:
Does that mean that is the 5th hot fix? Not sure if I can trust it to be "stable".1
People are like a stable set of database artifacts blah blah
Repeat this repost that
Did anyone ever figure out why it is that trained human detection models don’t work better ?
All you’d think they’d have to do is run an animation renderer to create data representing a human figure in every conceivable position imaginable with limbs moving into positions that were within certain tolerances in different positions with different textures
I don’t personally think the full capability is being represented2
You know it's bad when Chrome OS Beta Channel has no bugs while the Chrome OS Stable Channel is filled with them :/
Oh gosh! Installed miui rom in eui rom of leeco le2 😋 it's even more stable than stock eui rom. God m loving it.😍 Feeling of owning a new phone. 😎5
Kind of feeling when started Learning Rust
It really fRUSTrating but..
Awesomeness of new beats all odds2
Any OS recommendations for my old HP Pavilion g6?
Something a bit less known, along the line of elementaryOS (but stable) or Deepin (but not Chinese spyware).22
What Linux distros do you use and how stable are they ?
I'm currently running antergos, but it's really not working out. I'm looking for something that is more or less stable in the long run (something that doesn't require me to reinstall the whole f-ing OS every other day)13
Damn java 9 is such a pain in the arse. First there isn't official support for NetBeans which used to be my primary java development ide. Had to move to intelliJ for that jdk 9 support. Then came xamarin and visual studio. And guess what they don't support jdk 9. So now I need to have two sets of jdk to keep my work going. I don't understand the point of having a stable release if there is no widespread support. I mean sure visual studio is Microsoft problem but NetBeans is available from official oracle website. At least they should be able to integrate support for it.2
I am using flutter in my office right now to develop a cross platform app. Flutter is great and everything but there is just one issue. WHY ARE FLUTTER UPDATES SO DEVASTATING?? Latest flutter 1.22 takes in dart 2.10 ehich replaces @reuired with anew keyword required. What the hell!!! And also every var is now by default null safe. Whyyyy??? I was just trying to adjust to the update made in 1.12. oh and btw it went from 1.12 to 1.22 stable in just 6 months.5
Question to all linux users:
tl;dr MS office alternate for linux?
I am planning on switching from Win to some linux distro. But I hesitate bc I don't know what I should use instead of MS office or how I could still use it. I am searching an office suite that has a rather comprehensive UI, is stable, can be used offline and is compatible with MS Office since I still have to use it in school.
What do you use or would recommend?5
Is there any good and stable devRant command line app? I have everything but that to complete my setup.6
Just tried to attach a reminder for tomorrow to the window object of my brain. Uff... Enough JS and JSON for this week.
Have a nice weekend with stable friday deploys, fellas!
Uggggh. Working on making an Angular 6 element all day today only to find out change detection doesn't work in elements 😣
When is the stable version coming out ffs3
why is kotlin picking up so much hype is it actually completely stable now? Would it be better to develop android apps in kotlin rather than Java for my next app? Is java going to become obsolete/deprecated for android?1
Is Ubuntu subsystem for Linux any good? I'm still unable to have a stable Linux install so I thought I would use it because I'm just so used to Linux.7
nice, the way too old and confused woman i have to do work for suddenly remembered she has a meeting to showcase my mid-development app next tuesday.
she tells me on a friday the week before where i got holidays to have people build stuff in my (new) flat and i have a 1 week work travel thing next week...
i hate people ugh.
sure i can do this till tuesday, not like that shit takes weeks to get stable >;(2
Installed Ubunut 20 on my laptop (Thinkpad). It cannot open the App Store (with A letter on it). Imagine building a system, marking it as stable (long-term-support) and shipping it in such state that it is unable to launch the default (pre-installed!) app-store. This is Linux for you.
Updated the system; still cannot start the freaking appstore.7
Anyone who's been part of the community has probably noticed a little OS mud slinging. It's natural, as everyone cheers on their "team".
I just realized that no one is ranting/name calling/general mockery of the BSD crowd! They just get away without a scratch. Not fair 🚫10
What do you think of my setup?
I carry a strong laptop for heavy lifting and an iPad for RDP'ing into either my laptop or cloud hosted VM's.
This setup is obviously optimized for mobility, if I had a stable place to work, I'd use a desktop with multiple screens.
launched major version today which has been in development nearly 2 years. daily bugfix builds for the next month or so until it's stable as we slowly rollout one cluster at a time. going to be my first time on production bugfix duty. man it feels cool to be a full time software engineer.
Something very interesting today
I worked on an API feature and it was approved and merge to the stable copy of the project. But then comes the demo.
Now we used Heroku(this devil)
The database uses sqlite. I can register an account on the web application. But the user table has only the admin account even though i have successfully managed to register.
I dont know what sorcery this was!
I simply went with the saying "it is working on my local machine"
Only to realise minutes to the demo the build pack was not done well at the beginning...
What is life...
Archbang, Archlabs or Manjaro?
I am interested in using i3 as my wm. And because I will install it in my daily driver laptop, I want it to be reasonably stable and not with breaking updates.
Any thoughts and / or recommendations?11
Feels weird when others are facing redundancy, and I'm in a stable position but applying to a new job anyway.
Not sure if it's a sensible move, but I'm deferring that decision for now, chances are I may not get it anyway which would save the hassle!
Sometimes I run `sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade && sudo apt autoremove` to see if I can upgrade anything on my (stable) pc
It always sparks a little bit of joy whenever I have 0 upgrades to install, meaning that I'm enjoying the latest features and bugfixes, even for functionalities that I don't or rarely use :)8
Losing faith in Netflix and their awesome open source projects.
Had a hard time trying to install Security Monkey : poor quality quickstart Ubuntu-only, almost no documentation, same instructions for latest (aka dev) and stable (aka prod) version, no depencies list ... oh and the UI display well only on Chrome ..
Then you surrender and just want to check the dockerized version they provide : it doesn't work neither (build fail or back end process just shut down) !!
I'm done ...
Don't you love it when your CSS has two equally valid positions so doing and then reversing a DOM manipulation leaves the site in a mess?1
WTF debian? no mysql server or client in your package lists?
Ah i see, its just not stable enough...
Either get some form of 'stable' release of my current gang engine or just grow a pair and finally teach myself C and go back to the drawing board and build my engine with complete portability.8
If you are in the US how are you preparing for the next pending recession?
I am thinking about staying at my low paying but stable job where they have never done massive layoffs because they are not publically traded.
Ugh. Homeoffice tomorrow. Would be awesome if the servers that I need to connect to work on a project wouldn't be limited to our companies IPs only and the VPN connection would be a bit more stable.1
I've always found commenting my code tedious, is it better to comment as I code or wait until its stable and then comment all in one go at the end?12
To ensure everything goes well on prod, the chief QA set an env called 'stable' after prod deployment to stimulate true prod situation. Then we found that some apis on 'stable' crashed more often then those on prod.
My favourite browser has gone shite. Safari don't take the place left over by IE. Vivaldi is not stable enough yet. Firefox is way too slow. Chrome, well that's Google.2
My mind is not stable.
Office work requires - Linux Internals (knowledge on kernel, Device Drivers, Yocto etc) & Networking ( security ) -> CR on C/C++
Office work also requires - Python for tool development
My personal project requires - NodeJs, React
And I also want to appear for Interviews so also require DS & Algorithm
I hope you don't judge me3
coding has given me the opportunity to have a stable job and to grow as a professional and as a person2
Is it worth it to upgrade to Android P beta? Using a Pixel 2. Is it stable enough to warrant testing, or should I wait until more updates/releases come along?15
getting a real, stable and properly paying developer or IT support job
I'm tired of doing people's assignments for money
"docker-compose is already the newest version (1.25.0-1)" after apt-get upgrade docker-compose. Actually there is 1.29.1 which includes the bugfixes I wanted, but apt seems to prefer the buggy version for stable LTS Ubuntu at least. Wasted 3 hours with seemingly broken repositories until I found out.2
Whelp, Fedora has frustrated me one too many times. Anyone have suggestions for a good, stable distro with at least decent NVIDIA support?19
As you have seen this week again we have a problem with data imports from <tool 1> and <tool 2>. Clearly the existing setup is not working. We are now encouraging more and more people from the project to start using our portal and we need a stable and up to date environment.
Can we have a call please to discuss the following topics:
1. Portal data integrity
3. Project Communication
4. Development efficiency
<Drama Queen PM>1
What do you think about btrfs? Is it stable enough?
I would like to switch from ext4 to btrfs, because of snapshot feature :)
I can confirm that Crystal lang v1.0.0 is not stable really. I seem to have hit a block. For example, I get error messages like this frequently:
`Error: can't use Hash(K, V) as generic type argument yet, use a more specific type`.
I love the "yet" in this message; it gives you some hope!5
So, we've finally finished our ASP.NET Webforms application, and we're looking onto MVC. We've decided against core just because it isn't as stable yet, and there are fewer libraries, which I'm cool with. However, we still have some baggage from webforms left in our way of approaching the problems. Since the college at large has a custom bootstrap release, we already have bootstrap and jQuery included in the project. What is the best way of going about implementing an equivalent of ComboBoxes, gridviews with paging, and anything else included in the default asp elements and AJAX toolkit ones? My boss is very much against taking in anything but large, well supported libraries like Angular & Angular-UI, so no jQuery plugins unless super stable and supported. I'm trying to save us from having to buy DevExpress for like 3000 across our team. Sorry for the long bullshit, and thanks if you even read it!
Update concerning the current state of RemindMe
Now after Skayo's great contribution to the project, RemindMe is as of now, stable.
Contributions is still highly appreciated though
I just discovered the most mind blowing piece of software I have seen in a while.
It turns your machine into:
- Application Server
- Any amount of virtual machines
This software is so stable it will even let you run a gaming rig as a vm without much performance impact!
What is better? Stable but boring company(currently working here) or risky but intressting job(small company can fail or grow).
If the company grows the pay can get a lot higher then the current job offers.
I'm struggling with this question for couple of days please help fellow devs.4
Does anyone use a hackintosh for Dev? I do like Mac OS. How stable is it with updates, and is it still as hardware dependent as it was 3-4 years ago?2
Spent all afternoon trying to make CI work for my own personal website, trying out a new concept, that I call Frontend only, it restores, builds, but fails to deploy with connection dropped after a few seconds... For all of the Gods and Saints of deployment please grant me stable connections, thanks
PS: you guys at cPanel Fuck You, thanks
I'm really frustrated by the size of node_modules folder that gets created every time for every project. So, I've been looking for some time-space saving solutions. And I found PNPM ( https://pnpm.js.org/ ) , Yarn ( https://yarnpkg.com/ ) and Pkglink ( https://github.com/jeffbski/pkglink ). But I'm not sure which is better to serve my purpose.
Things I'm looking forward to solving:
1. I don't want to re-download the same packages over and over again
2. I don't want the same packages to be in multiple projects and eat up space
3. I want a stable, fast and disk space saving solution
Looking for experts advice.7
I have published my app, it is stable and functional. Design is simple but not ugly. I do not have much downloads. What can I do to make users to try it?4
Need some help from anyone experience with MEAN.
Do you have a separate cache for data or is Mongo the cache as well?
Basically we have 500GB+ DB of data, how would you architect a MEAN system around it so that it's fast and stable1
Just saw a video based on the idea : what if the earth was a global country?
A provoking thought. If a 5000 people at google can control 3.5 billion people's data,
can we make a stable democratic government of a million(or more) politicians controlling the whole world's legislature?
Does this thought have a future? Since we are all connected by internet and simply moving towards a global village like environment, courtesy of softwares like fb or what's app, i think we would one day be ready to remove the boundaries .8
Once had a meeting for PHP update plan. Somehow the decision was made to 'update' to an older version than we started with as it was 'more stable'.
What are some bulletproof linux distros, I'm tired of semi-stable distros that need more attention than the work that I'm trying to do on them.9
used debian-mate for almost two years without update/upgrade and its still stable .
I just can't trust any other Linux distributions4
What should I use to build cross-platform desktop programs?
I'm thinking of learning Java and using JavaFX. I'm staying away from swing since it's a bit old and I've seen people say it's outdated for today's standards.
Flutter desktop would be cool but there's nothing stable for that stuff yet. I've also looked a bit into Haxe but I'm not sure if it's any good.
What's your opinion?23
Use linux they said. It is stable they said.
I use a linux VM for managing DNS with BIND and configuration via WebMIN.
A minor webmin update : Sure, let’s click.
“Update failed. WebMIN requires UnZIP” Poof whole interface is down. Here we go for 30+ minutes of manual rolling back, installing unzip, retrying update. That shit only happens on linux.23
I have an OPO and been looking to upgrade to Nougat for awhile. Think it's supposed to have a lot of improvements including better battery stats and control?
Was looking at LineageOS but it's still on nightlies... Are there any other ROMs that are stable?
And is N worth an upgrade or should I just wait for O? I'm on CM13 atm.13
Ok, let's agree to stop giving applications names that are so ambiguous that they give no clue what the purpose is.
Google Play Store has top 2016 apps... Under "most innovative" is the app, "Eve" by "Glow". Is it a game? General app? I was curious and clicked for the detail...
I never in a million years would have clicked on that! Wow. 😓
I have this fixation with minmaxing core clocks, voltages and their respective curves (P states, basically). I'm still not sure how much it actually improves my experience, but I'll be damned if it isn't fun and interesting to mess around with these numbers and see them climb higher but remain stable.
Currently messing around with a Vega 64. They come in severely overvolted, and I'm trying to get it to retain its performance with less voltage aka less heat. I don't even need to turn on central heating if I'm running stress tests, the bloody thing runs at 80°C! So I guess you can see why undervolting the card is of interest
Just went to update my nextcloud instance, is there an archive of packages for archlinux ARM, nextcloud stable isnt compatible with php 7.2.
I regularly clear /var/cache/pacman/pkg yes i already checked...
I got a call for interview in a company with glassdoor review 2.5! Big company with stable business!
Should I go? A friend said I should not?
What do you think ladies and gentlemen??3
Anyone else gotten really good at the screenshot -> crop -> send to friend workflow on devRant?
Why is save image disabled? Am I missing something stupid easy here?!
@dfox Please help make this process more streamlined if this is working as intended!7
Is there any stable Node.js framework that is convention based? My problem is everytime I begin a new project I have to think of the folder structure, packages to use etc. I looked into AdonisJS which seems to be what I need but then there are so many opinions on the internet regarding how it uses custom require mechanism instead of going ES6 style modules and how it is small and this will be no future proof . Tried Next.js and there seems to be steep learning curve. Any advices?2
I wish the U.S. didn't "pasteurize" eggs, because without that, eggs are shelf-stable, which would mean I could keep them in a basket on my countertop and label it "npm"2
really?? we have not seen any new framework for months now, or even any news of it...
I think we are on the stable phase now...
...or I could be wrong. :/
Robert Martin says in clean code, or maybe clean architecture, that one should separate the tests into what is hard and easy. GUI tests are hard and therefore brittle and so we should test against view models.
However on clean agile he says a story is not done until it passes automated acceptance tests which in my experience are always brittle and grow so large and brittle that things grind to a halt.
What am I missing? Are stable acceptance tests possible on the GUI? Should we test only an API?5
Finally got myself to buy a SSD for my laptop, so I was thinking about trying Ubuntu Mate...but wtf...
I like it because it is similar to Unity but stability is awful. It breaks every 5 minutes. Very not funny.1
Spent ages building docker containers for all our projects. All worked great and I released it. So someone added a new dependency that required an Ubuntu package to be installed but forgot to tell me. My colleague said "docker isn't very stable is it" when it didn't run due to said dependency. It's a Linux container ffs, see if you blame Virtualbox under the same circumstances you idiot
I tried to reach myself Ruby a while ago, but ran into a plethora of issues just trying to get a stable running version of the compiler going. There's like, three different sites claiming to be the official site, which is which?
Does anyone even use Ruby anymore? Is it even worth learning?11
Working on maintenance suck, but that's why most of the software developers do. Stable job and higher pay. Mundane tasks like fix bugs or modify small part of the software.
Working on an idea is interesting in startup. You don't see shit code and code from the ground up. The work is creative. But the pay is low because the company is not profitable.
Which one is your choice?3
Damn it. This WiFi service in the train sucks. Not only they do block so dangerous stuff like Ubuntu packages but it is not even fast / reliable enough to give me stable SSH. NOT EVEN VIA FREAKING MOSH! We are talking UDP and couple of kbytes. Thankfully they let me pay for it after using up my generous 15 free minutes. Suckers.
After spending time trying to work in frameworks and new popular environments on my Windows machine(😵), I now don't hate ASP.NET.
After one too many Yak shaving experiences, I am just so happy that it doesn't break the moment I change something. 😭
Freelancing as Android developer for a year now. Before that I was programming for myself in C, Java and Python for 2 years. Thought about getting a parttime job as android dev in a company for a stable income stream, I never worked in a company before. What does a Company see as Senior and what as Junior? Where do I belong to? I got pretty good references and reviews, made this year 20+ Projects, but some extra income and extra experience wouldnt be bad2
Hello All, Could you give advise please? I choosing a database for my new Joomla site. Is it better to use PostgreSQL than MySQL for my site? As I could understand PostgreSQL is more stable and safe database And the speed of PostgreSQL comparable with MySQL.9
Making music definitely made me a better programmer. In fact playing lots of instruments showed me the different roles that exist on a team. Lead guitarists are kinda like programmers, constantly looking for the next challenging song to make. Singers and rhythm guitarists are like the team leads and PMs who want a nice bow on the product. Drummers are like designers really, they kinda show up and make something bad ass and disappear. Bass players are like solid backend or ops folks silently making stuff stable and grounded.
Oh I just gotta love how low quality selenium is. Gotta love the fact that sometimes you need to commit your code 5 times before selenium tests do not fail completely randomly and the whole commit is rollbacked. Like I don't fucking have other shit to do other than wait for these retarded tests to finish just to expect that with 90% probability they are going to fail because selenium is a huge pile of poop when it comes to UI tests. Also testers do not seem to give a single fuck since they just keep writing more of those instead of making old test more stable, fucking awesome.
What's the most stable distro/flavour I could use? After working with neon KDE for a bit and havin to fix stuff, from grub to system drivers, I just don't have much time left for actual coding in my spare time. Should a I just go for Ubuntu?8
I am not sure if I am a lucky ass or fucking dumb ass!
Almost a year ago I started my current job in the banking industry as the 5th job in my career.. now days a guy from a cryptocurrency company located in the country next me - 1 hr drive - is asking me to join their team.
Am not sure if I should take the chance or stay where am I since its stable and there is “promises for improvements”5
I have a stable day job of IT administration.
But since college years have been enthusuastic about open source. Lately learnd Python and did well with job profile related simple tweaks and hacks. Mostly self taught lone wolf, dont have corporate development experience.
I keep reading and Courses cant see bigger picture, where I am heading? How far i can go with this?
Any suggestion, motivation, criticism, someone who have been in similiar situation. Most welcome3
VSCode offers to install the official MSSQL plugin as "recommended plugins for MySQL" without informing the user that they're getting fucked over. I tolerate very few deliberate minor inconveniences designed to influence my product choice, so what are my options for a reasonably scriptable, yet stable open source IDE with a good set of plugins?9
it's going to be a 'headphones on and don't disturb me' kinda day, fucking bugs and not stable apis and a lot of stories to finish...
Gotta love it when your untouched code worked just hours ago locally and now you have no idea why everything breaks, what has gone wrong and how to fix it ... but it's stable remotely on dev/test/live. Project runs on localhost + vpn on company servers. I can dynamically change the parts that shall be compiled locally and the rest will be loaded from the company servers.
debian:jessie has lot many old libraries that cause memory leaks, which gets solved in future releases of these libraries. Yet, debian fails to accommodate these new releases. They do this to make jessie 'stable' they say. I am quite curious if these instabilities faced is what they call stability. Example: glib
Discussion forum software: what is the most stable and secure as well as regularly updated package out there?6
Made a !rant about me making a market economy simulation.
It kinda works. It works way too good. Way too stable prices. Something will explode for sure and I can't fricking find out where or what!1
Hello folks, have a question, I can't decide if I should install windows 7 (super stable Windows btw) or a Linux distribution (debian or Ubuntu 14), I've always been a Windows guy and was thinking of switching to Linux on my new free dos laptop and wanted to have a hand on Linux, but please I don't want that Windows/Linux fight I just need real advice. Some friends told me to get Windows 7 and a VM Linux just for practice, I also thought about having a dual boot Windows Linux server , I think it would be the best config for me.. so..?3
I installed elementary os, and my computer froze every 5 minutes or so. I have a surface pro 3 any suggestions on a stable Linux distro? Pretty lame rant but I did try 3 distos and all were glitchy.12
Am I the only to have bad mojo with Android 7? It loses 4g network all the time, restarts, is generally slow... It's like they follow the Microsoft release model, one version stable (4), next one buggy and bad (5), then nice again (6), and now bad (7)...
This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with : "The Microsoft Edge team is pausing updates to the Stable channel for Microsoft Edge. This means that Microsoft Edge 81 will not be promoted to Stable until we resume these updates."
Should I take in a opportunity to work for a contact job for a year? There's a possibility of absorption but ever since rona hit we all need a stable job.5
Unity is the worst! Every single version of it has some kind of bug that prevents some piece of what I'm working on to be buggy. 5.3.4 seems the most stable, as far as the app working, but likes to crash on me several times a day on Mac OS. I'm really tired of this.
I am going for a new Linux distro which supports Optimus technology laptops , have a big community to support , stable .
P.S used kali Linux and it broke when installed wine and then tring to make it work
Used Ubuntu and it broke when install some kali Linux tools and it broke because of some dependacies and then python stopped working
Recently saw that Visual Studio 2022 preview build, I guess 4 is here, so any idea if this one is more stable? Like I had the 3rd preview build and sh!t was the worst. Felt like riding a bullock cart. Even the indent guides vanished outta nowhere. So guys?1
I love the idea behind arangodb and how fast and stable it is.
But why the fuck did they not make every possible effort to stick with SQL and build a friendlier microservice framework to make all that shit easier to use? (rhetorical question girls, no need to explain, I get it, they just rushed to butter some bread sooner rather than later)
they seem to have lost so much market share because of these two details...
Anyone here using openSUSE as their main flavor? I'm spinning up an instance in AWS to test out now and wondering if there's anyone that might have some insights/opinions to openSUSE.
Like, Do you like it? Is it stable for you? Any weird quirks or issues that you've run into while using it?
Thank you in advance for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! I really appreciate the feedback =)
