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.38
In case you ever want to hack into a computer with 14 lines of code only. This algorithm is just genius.28
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 😜10
Even if interdimensional monsters are looking for you... never forget to naming your variables!
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
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
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
I’ve always used Windows, all the way from Windows 95 till now, and I have been happy with it. But after the Windows 8 and 10 I just felt it was time to try something new. The flat interface (Metro – or what they call it now) dose not appeal to me. I feel like a stranger, and I don’t like the direction Microsoft are taking Windows. I often played around with Ubuntu on VM’s, but about a month ago I went (almost) all in and installed Linux Mint. So far, I love it and I don’t see myself going back. I kept a small partition with Windows, that is mend for gaming, and is used to upload my training passes from my Garmin GPS watch (which is not supported on Linux). I few things I miss is, Visual Studio and Microsoft Office. I’m now moving from C# to Python and I have a license for Office 365 that works in the browser, so I hope that will be enough to leave Windows for good.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
Stranger Things Fan: Have you seen Stranger Things? It's really good. You NEEEEED to watch it. Now.
Firefox Quantum Fan: Have you used FireFox Quantum? It's safe, fast, and uses less RAM. I don't know why it has such a low market share. You neeeeeeeed to use it! NOW.5
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!!!
What Pop! Funkos do you have @ your desk? 🤔

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
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.
