Dear unknown StackExchange random dude,
You don't know me, I don't know you, but, let's be honest : I came here to get answers, not to get my question fucking edited.
Go fuck yourself25
After some searching I found a solution on stackexchange.
The solution was a reference to a patch that I created a couple of years ago :)1
Ever tried "CodeGolf" on StackExchange?
I did it for a while and had some fun.
Until it became the usual dick-measuring contest that is StackExchange.
"Have you tried...?"
Bitch did I ask for your help?
The final straw for me was when it became obvious that people were checking to make sure I hadn't lied about my character count. Then someone downvoted my answer after I misinterpreted the question.
That was it for me, fuck y'all.
This C# Christmas Tree was my highest voted answer, approx 1 year ago. (Hope the gif works.)6
I really fucking loathe StackExchange. Some poor soul had the nerve (THE NERVE!) to ask a question about something they didn't understand (HOW DARE THEY!):
"What is the difference between a ping and a get request? The goal is to see if the site is up."
And par for the course over at smarmy-fucking-smug-pedant-land, in less than three hours, the question was closed: "[C]losed as not a real question... It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.
Allow me to indulge in some pedantic, "well actually" fuckery of my own...
Well actually, that actually is a 'real' question, because it's, you know, a fucking question. There's a question mark in there and everything! The person is asking what the difference is between two different things, and we can tell it's actually two different things because the person uses two different fucking nouns. And not only is this person asking to know what the difference is between these two different things, they even give us a use-case for why they're asking the question: they're pretty sure that they think they might know there's at least two different ways to check that their website is up, they just want to know what the difference is between those two methods -- hence the two different fucking nouns. It's almost like they're trying to give us some contextual information about why they're asking so that even if there is some vagueness to their question -- which is bound to happen IF YOU KNOW YOU DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE SUBJECT, WHICH IS PROBABLY WHY YOU'RE FUCKING ASKING -- then a reasonable, decent, helpful person who is making a good-faith effort to be helpful can infer from that context enough information that clarifies the question enough to remove any vagueness or ambiguity and thus provide a helpful answer. AND THAT'S WHAT FUCKING HAPPENED!
And what just fucking galls me to no end... the question was answered (SUCCINTLY, INFORMATIVELY, SIMPLY, AND CORRECTLY!) and even marked as accepted in less than fifteen minutes after being asked.
And that didn't stop some smug fuck from being an asshole and closing the question because "fucking scrub noobfags need to git gud."
If MySpace was a place for friends,
then StackExchange is the place for insufferably elitist smug cunts.4
Stackexchange hot network questions...
Whenever you're debugging shit like "What weapons could squirrels use" pops up and I'm not even kidding when I say there's fucking serious answers... Some of them a few pages long3
Yesterday I spent some time on the meta site for dba.stackexchange.com and found this one guy with 1 rep raging about how his questions aren't getting answered and how is answers are the best etc...
"I have 17 years of experience as a dba, blah, blah, blah, my answers are correct, blah, blah"
He got pretty destroyed by the mods and other users about how shit his answers were and how they weren't factually correct etc...
This just continues to show that no matter how much experience you have you won't always be right.
Same goes for my senior at work, he has 10 years more experience than me (I have 2) and he still asks for my point of view and help without being a dick about it.
I hope we'll all keep being nice people unlike that Stackexchange guy...2
Man, fuck the SO community
I asked a question on software engineering (all fancy like, links quotes checked spelling and grammar etc.)
if it would be beneficial to switch to another language in order to increase performance and memory limitations during a specific task
Literally one guy said it violated 4 of their rules
Opinion based; asking for language switch; too vague and another one
About 20/30 minutes later my question had a -3 score...
Fuck off with too vague, also why shouldn't I switch language for a single task... If it would be faster..
Anyway found an even better solution, but it cannot be enough said.. the SO community is a bunch of old stubborn fucks who only care about their score.4
Just found out that Microsoft Edge sends unbelievable many requests to the Server if you keep Holding Ctrl + R (Reload site)
Don't tr it at home haha
Now i got temporarily blocked on StackExchange (for About 8 h):10
When you're parsing SO's questions from your cellphone, you find one that's easy, you answer it, then when it's done, you read the question again to realized you totally missed the point.
When you realize that the StackExchange app doesn't allow you to delete your own comment, so you have to rush to the nearest computer to delete your answer before anyone downvotes it.
When you sit back again to resume your breakfast, the adrenaline rush slowly fading away.2
Haven't used stack exchange in a while - forgot how cancerous the community is. Posted a question today on the raspberry pi forum, and someone (within a few mins of posting) edited my post to replace a hyphen with a comma, and removed the word "basically".16
How normal people stalk others -
Follow them on Instagram , facebook
How programmers stalk others-
Follow them on stack overflow , github, twitter, codeforces , bitbucket.2
Looking forward to read of some nice "dumps", "leaks" and "overflows" there. :D3
Stack Overflow has this section in the sidebar that displays hot questions from the entire SE network.
I keep being distracted everytime I see it.2
Welcome to the Unix stack exchange network where ...
FUCK YOU! I AM THE UNIX KING AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR NOT KNOWING WHAT I KNOW2
Are there any plans to expand devrant to other fields/professions? Something like stackexchange maybe?
Complaining is a lucrative business and I bet most people would like a community that understands their frustrations.2
I don't know about you, but I have Stack Exchange's app installed in my phone just in case. I never use it, but it's there for an emergency (I don't know what kind of emergency, to be honest, but you never know...)1
Why the hell people like Quora?
I hate that it forces me to sign in. I won't, because it makes no sense. Fuck it, my time is precious, don't play with it.
StackExchange is doing great by leaving information free for everyone and even allowing them to interact without an account.6
Just asked a question on another stackexchange site. Funny how almost all questions and answers are being upvoted. Thats something that you are not used to experience on stackoverflow :P1
Endlessly tweaking your site's CSS thinking that you've gone insane until a random stackexchange thread points you to a bug that Mozilla has had open for SEVEN FUCKING YEARS.
This is outrageous and satisfying at the same time.
Error message meant for a developer and why the fuck the stackexchange app does not work on Google signin2
I think I've found my niche StackExchange site. I just found out I rank in the top 8% of this months reputation gain.4
Answering a question on Stackexchange. The OP accepts your answer as correct. Then seeing someone correcting your English Grammar on the answer. That someone happens to be Drupal and English language moderator at the same time...fucking awesome.
Bootcamp fked up during partition and macos disk utility disk utility simply sucks.
Now i have unaccessible 44gb space on this system. Also TIL, online help related to issues on Mac is terrible. Lol even stackexchange has no replies.
Apparently it seems i have to reinstall whole OS to recover it..
Or is there any other way?..8
Morons flagging questions as duplicate on stackexchange without even reading it.
Why did i even bother posting there?
Something I needed without even knowing, but finally realized today:
alias ls='ls --group-directories-first'
(mac-fags will need to brew coreutils and alias to gls instead)
All credits to that random guy on superuser (stackexchange). Make directories great again! 😇
Today I asked a question on RPG stackexchange, I made some typos, didnt format it nicely, added a wrong tag.
Within a minute I had 10 upvotes and an answer, people formatted my question and people improving the answer.
I was so surprised that people actually where nice. StackOverflow is one of the few stackexchanges that really sucks...
Why are devs such jerks?2
Crazy: I had this issue with vc-state reporting 'edited on a visited file even after all changes made were pushed to the remote Git repository in a commit. Looking for answers in Emacs Stackexchange I find someone having the same issue --in a different context-- but with no replies, the question passed unanswered like six months... until now!. Took me one minute this time (I have been dragging this during two years or so) to find out we had vc-refresh-state which solves my issue and the issue of OP in Emacs Stackexchange.
It was a matter of hooking it with some Magit's hooks and you are ready to go!.
MFers... DevRant is not StackExchange. Got a question because you don't know how to do something? F*cking go to StackExchange and ask there.10
Why the fuck is SE/SO buried so deep in politics? it's a fucking website with some fucking posts and some fucking people
Why can't all these fuckers just go run for congress so they can pull dick on taxpayers' money rather than cram up that fucking website with their bullshit
Tons of tons of tens of hundred pages of bullshit and debate and comments and what the fuck not over a fucking WEBSITE. I haven't seen this much bullshit flying around when fucktards voted trump for president.
I'm DNS shitholing all this fucking thing, right now it costs me more time to dig through piles of human garbage than it saves me on occasion
PS I'm not even sure I wouldn't just delete that whole fucking thing if I could. And have those fuckers dig holes in the ground to make themselves more useful. All this shit does is to make it easier for retards to jump on the software development bandwagon ruining the market for everyone else.5
Dude. I asked my question like 6 months ago. I got an upvote and two answers. I accepted the one which helped me the most and upvoted it myself.
How about you fuck off with your edit suggestions on a buried subject?
I have a BlackBerry KeyONE, because quite frankly I type more than I watch video or other shit on my phone.
For a few years now the keyboards have also acted as a track pad of sorts. It's nice for scrolling apps without smudging up the screen. Not to mention my fingers are already there most of the time anyways.
The StackExchange app for whatever reason scrolls the wrong direction. It's the only app from dozens that do this. It's so isolated it seems like this is a design issue with SE, not the phone.
You'd think of all the apps, the one for developers wouldn't be the one I have problems with.
"- Hello I work on this shitty Drupal project where the vendor directory is gitted, and we can't use composer becauses it returns error [note: i wish this was a joke]. So I installed a module that won't work, because it needs a depency. I installed it but it still doesn't work
- You need to edit your autoloader
- Ok, what do I put in it?
- Idk, you're not supposed to do it, and let composer do it for you"
Did I ever tell you how the Drupal stack exchange will one day make me turn into a serial killer?
So Stack Exchange (parent of Stack Overflow) is trying to add new features to help new users feel welcomed there and people are still behaving like there is a threat to their cult.
"You should be nice to everyone, not just new user"
So why don't you remember that when you deal with a new user?
Constructs that would help my team mates, but they don't listen to me:
1) classes in general
3) using dates from the API instead of date.now
4) not using exceptions for flow control
5) Stop using StackExchange verbatim, learn from the answer, not ctrl+c,ctrl+v
6) use datatables and read/write once to the db, not each "row"
StackExchange- the place you go when you have a valid question in any academic subject if you want an answer that includes being told how stupid you are for not knowing it
Ok so, i have no idea where i can ask this kinda thing so i'm asking it here (i know i could do like stackexchange or dead aws discord servers, ... nvm you know why i'm not going that route).
I'm looking for a comparison between a mongo+node setup on a basic t1.micro instance and a lambda+dynamodb setup.
Each one has it's perks obviously but i guess i sorta prefer whichever one gives best performance on the free tier.
I do know dynamo has 25 reads and 25 writes a second on the free tier, which might be a little less ? I really have no clue.
But how many writes/reads would a basic mongo setup be able to achieve on the t1.micro instance ? Any idea? Do share your experiences with these architectures as well. I'm sort of a newb with serverless, the downsides aren't worth it for me but I'm learning it nevertheless. It sorta tickles some sort of self-torture curiosity fetish (need more self-research to back that).10
Is there anyone here into DevOps? I have lots of questions to ask and no one is answering on StackExchange :'(10
