So basically there's this guy, that work with us that relocated from a small village south of Italy to the city where we have the HQ.
So after a while this guy has found a girlfriend here and after few days we discovered that he never had sex in his life. you may ask, how did you discover it? Yes, basically he disappeared for a week, his phone was off, no slack, no Facebook, nothing. We couldn't contact him in any way. After a week he gave a call to our cto saying sorry about what happened and explaining that he spent the whole week having sex with his girl, day and night. This story has also a good end because he still has his job.31
In case you ever want to hack into a computer with 14 lines of code only. This algorithm is just genius.27
Probably the strangest thing (bug?) I've found on Google Translate.
Mgr: "Why are you 'having to' debug in Chrome?"
-in an almost 'you didn't know?' condensing tone -
Me: "Umm...pretty sure you can."
-I do a quick search on stackoverflow-
- Mgr looks over and smiles, not trying to laugh -
Senior Dev: "Hey, did you watch that scene in Stranger Things...man thats a good show ..."
Not sure WTF just happened.9
4 week summer vacation over. Did not code any sideprojects and opened laptop only to watch netflix on vacation (Stranger Things ❤️). My liver will be pleased that its over. Tomorrow back to work, hopefully I remember how to code again 😜9
Even if interdimensional monsters are looking for you... never forget to naming your variables!
Instead of a rant I have a story for you.
I was browsing my emails and eminently pissed off, as I usually am. Came across an email from
and thought "fuck this guy and his adverspam!"
Because whats more rational than hating someone you don't know, over something they didn't do, because of something completely unrelated to them of which they have no control?
The email looked like this
"I have some fantastic news for you:
Clean Components will be released again on April 21!
With a "🎉" emoji. I'm in a more vile mood than usual today.
It goes on.
"Even better, I'm significantly dropping the price, so you'll definitely want to pick it up!"
I fire off a quick reply.
"What a bunch of bullshit.
I decide to change careers and a month later, just like in 2008, this fucking pandemic happens and the economy and hiring
And here I am getting sent this bullshit.
I had to rewrite and shitcan the response a few times for civility. I guess this is me being polite, but I was suddenly compelled to vent to this total stranger over what in all likelihood was an *automated* email.
Six and a half hours later I got a reply.
"Hey James, I'm sorry this pandemic has been rough on you.
I hope things turn around for you soon.
If it would help, I'd give you the course for free, but if you've switched careers I'm not sure it's relevant any more?
My god. A lone voice of calm in a wasteland of 24/7 bad and worsening news. Sometimes simplicity is the soul of class.
Hes got it in spades.
And here I was thinking "today might be the day. Thank god for giant bottles of hydrocodone."
It's not true that all gingers are soulless demons.
Some of them are angels in problem glasses.
No but seriously, hes a cool guy in my book.

So, stranger things season 2, Bob is hacking a system with BASIC, writing entire lines with one keyboard press. Such skill. Much wow.
Have I missed something lately? xD10
me: maybe i should update my pro- naaaaaahhh lemme just watch stranger things
*after almost 17 hrs of watching stranger things*
me: great, totally motivated to continue project.... but first lemme get some sleep.
i could have done so many things and i could have fixed some bugs but i didnt. procrastination at its finest.4
Hmm, I find it highly peculiar that I let a friend borrow my pc to watch stranger things on Netflix, with her account.
I signed her into the guest account, she picked Google Chrome (not signed in).
Now my Facebook feed and YouTube adds are all about stranger things..
I get the ip gets logged & mapped.. But srsly.5
Stranger Things Fan: Have you seen Stranger Things? It's really good. You NEEEEED to watch it. Now.
Firefox Quantum Fan: Have you used FireFox Quantum? It's safe, fast, and uses less RAM. I don't know why it has such a low market share. You neeeeeeeed to use it! NOW.4
Yet another reason, why I love the Internet and it's ability to remove remove borders that should not exist in the first place.
Around seven hours ago, I met a stranger while playing rocket league. Just now I said goodbye to a friend, with whom I talked about our lives, our opinions on certain matters and our cultures.
Just within seven hour I made a friend with whom I could talk honestly about things I could probably not even talk about with my parents.2

Ugh, doing laundry sucks. Partially because the laundry area is adjacent to the living room and that makes it harder to hear stranger things, but mostly because it signals the end of the weekend. But I decided to be positive and share some positivity with you:
No matter what challenges you will face in the next week, you can do it. The Universe/God/The Flying Spaghetti Monster chose you to face the challenges because you can do. If the universe can believe in you, then so can I. And so should you. Get out there and rock fellow DevRanters!!!
There's been quite a commotion about Microsoft joining the Linux Foundation, and if you didn't think things could get any stranger, well, it is. Windows 10 Creators Edition will merge Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04. That's what you get for eating mushrooms.14
I found a good method of testing everything before I add it to the project so rn I’m calm
On the other side of things, Stranger Things S3 is killing me2
Wherever i starts coding something new
There's assignments to submit,
And then there's game of thrones, silicon valley, friends, westworld, stranger things etc etc etc
Then again next semester....1
Stranger Things, apart from Mr. Robot, has the best implementation of computer hacking I've seen in a "television" show! Just straight up CODE.2
Why is everyone+dog starting to harden their systems against quantum computers cracking it? Are usable quantum computers available for all the insiders now? This is all giving me the deja vu feel of eternalblue/wannacry fix Microsoft was passionately recommending to update back when it wasn't publicly know.
