Search - "trump who?"
I'll keep it short:
My nastiest freelancing horror stories contain shitty clients who dont pay, the nastiest fucking legacy code you can imagine, and expectations as high as trump thinks of himself.
The lesson is simple: Choose your freelancing clients wisely and always expect partial payment in advance. Even from family or firends!9
If the java programming language were a human I would lock it in my basement and videotape a timelapse of it starving to death. I hate java. I'm irretrievably revolted by its existence. I actually just threw up in my mouth a little bit thinking about the possibility that there's a chance that I might have to write three lines of it before I die by stabbing myself to death as a result of having to write three lines of code in java. I think I would rather wrestle ten alligators than be within 100m of a computer containing a storage device that has binary code for the jvm stored on it, running or otherwise. I have cron jobs that search my system for any code that is stored in java bytecode format on my hard drives, and purges it with a 41 pass government wipe no questions asked once every hour just because it leaves behind a disgusting taste if it's not properly purified. I turn over and over in my bed when I think that some high school or college student somewhere is learning java and not wearing the appropriate hazmat suit while handling it and their children will be born with horrible deformities because of it. And they don't even know. I'm angry that president trump has not built a wall around oracle corporation and ordered the banishment of all of their employees that have contributed to java for a permanent vacation on Guantanamo bay.
Please say with me the prayer of the gnu:
Oh bless thee gnu that though might purge my computer of lesser proprietary softwares and software specifications, and deliver us to holy lands of free coreutils and runtime environments where our children's children may live without sin and curse the dark age of fucking bullshit languages, in thy mercy; and they will raise thy holy license up on high and say the great gnu prayer as you taught us to say: our father, who art Richard stallman, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy bug tickets be resolved. Give us this day our daily blog entry, and forgive us our sins, as we consider but ultimately pass on forgiving jvm engineers for ruining the world, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from windows, for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever amen.
So let's get back to java. It fucking sucks, I despise the fact that anybody believes it holds any advantages over c++ as it's memory model is fucked up in plenty of ways, and many critical bugs have been uncovered and fixed in the garbage collector over the years. It's hated by many. It's father was an investment banker, and it's mother won the Darby.55
Couple hours ago I've posted it to my LinkedIn page and now I regret it. DevRant is not a place for politics and racial desputes.. We're devs for fucks sake...3
My current company. It's locker room talk 24/7
I am a man. I don't mind sex, but my colleagues, and my boss, are talking like Trump was talking to Billy Bush in that bus. I am contemplating complaining to HR, who happens to join them in mentally undressing women and other lewd conversations, or handing in my resignation22
Get ready for a awesome conspiracy theory/ WhatsApp forward :D i like how people are coming with new stuff every minute of their boredom . Makes you ponder:
How to dominate the world quickly?
THE GREAT CHINESE STAGE
1. Create a virus and the antidote.
2. Spread the virus.
3. A demonstration of efficiency, building hospitals in a few days. After all, you were already prepared, with the projects, ordering the equipment, hiring the labor, the water and sewage network, the prefabricated building materials and stocked in an impressive volume.
4. Cause chaos in the world, starting with Europe.
5. Quickly plaster the economy of dozens of countries.
6. Stop production lines in factories in other countries.
7. Cause stock markets to fall and buy companies at a bargain price.
8. Quickly control the epidemic in your country. After all, you were already prepared.
9. Lower the price of commodities, including the price of oil you buy on a large scale.
10. Get back to producing quickly while the world is at a standstill. Buy what you negotiated cheaply in the crisis and sell more expensive what is lacking in countries that have paralyzed their industries.
After all, you read more Confucius than Karl Marx.
PS: Before laughing, read the book by Chinese colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, from 1999, “Unrestricted Warfare: China’s master plan to destroy America”, on Amazon, then we talk. It's all there.
Just Think about this...
How come Russia & North Korea are totally free of Covid- 19? Because they are staunch ally of China. Not a single case reported from this 2 countries. On the other hand South Korea / United Kingdom / Italy / Spain and Asia are severely hit. How come Wuhan is suddenly free from the deadly virus?
China will say that their drastic initial measures they took was very stern and Wuhan was locked down to contain the spread to other areas. I am sure they are using the Anti dode of the virus.
Why Beijing was not hit? Why only Wuhan? Kind of interesting to ponder upon.. right? Well ..Wuhan is open for business now. America and all the above mentioned countries are devastated financially. Soon American economy will collapse as planned by China. China knows it CANNOT defeat America militarily as USA is at present
THE MOST POWERFUL country in the world. So use the virus...to cripple the economy and paralyse the nation and its Defense capabilities. I'm sure Nancy Pelosi got a part in this. . to topple Trump. Lately President Trump was always telling of how GREAT American economy was improving in all fronts. The only way to destroy his vision of making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN is to create an economic havoc. Nancy Pelosi was unable to bring down Trump thru impeachment. ....so work along with China to destroy Trump by releasing a virus. Wuhan,s epidemic was a showcase. At the peak of the virus epidemic. ..
China's President Xi Jinping...just wore a simple RM1 facemask to visit those effected areas. As President he should be covered from head to toe.....but it was not the case. He was already injected to resist any harm from the virus....that means a cure was already in place before the virus was released.
Some may ask....Bill Gates already predicted the outbreak in 2015...so the chinese agenda cannot be true. The answer is. ..YES...Bill Gates did predict. .but that prediction is based on a genuine virus outbreak. Now China is also telling that the virus was predicted well in advance. ....so that its agenda would play along well to match that prediction. China,s vision is to control the World economy by buying up stocks now from countries facing the brink of severe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. Later China will announce that their Medical Researchers have found a cure to destroy the virus. Now China have other countries stocks in their arsenal and these countries will soon be slave to their master...CHINA.
Just Think about it ...
The Doctor Who declared this virus was also Silenced by the Chinese Authorities...18
How can instagram be even remotely popular? It's just unbelievable shit. Clearly not made by people who know anything about photography. I mean routinely cropping images in app and on the web in a quite arbitrary fashion. If your picture is wide or high you cannot even upload it without cropping. Instagram is minimalistic in all the wrong ways. A useless tool for the snapper with little brain and no interest.
Nobody uses Flickr, which is quite a good service. It's VHS vs Beta / Commodore vs Atari / Trump vs Roosevelt but much much worse!16
I remember when doing some privacy cleanup, looking at the third-party list of a website and visiting the sites behind them. I ended up one time on Crazy Egg.
3 months later, I got an email if I wouldn't want to use their services.
They did have my email.
From where? (the answer is obviously from the sites they track)
But I mean, who cares about your email when they have your f****** passport
This world is getting to crazy, I thought this would be the maximum. Of course...
I think tracking is a more serious problem, than I imagined (and I do already try to reduce data)
Oh yeah and btw I just noticed an iOS app could silently use my mobile data (was deactivated for the app) to display ads. Silently. I hope this was a bug. But I don't think so.
Cunts I want to punch in the face: (in order of priority, grouped by similarity.)
1. Anyone who uses the words 'doggo' or 'pupper'.
2. Rapists, masogynists, Scientologists.
3. Anyone with news about their latest Linux distro.
4. Kanye West, Fred West, John West.
5. Trump, Maybot, Bojo.
6. Friends of Trump, Maybot, Bojo.
7. Kevin Bacon (since the EE ads)
8. That child on the bus.
9. The parents of that child on the bus.
10. Anybody who disagrees with any item on this list.17
A former coworker who is now also leaving the project that's being managed by a guy who'd make trump look like Einstein. Anyway...
Him: You know the idea of measure twice, cut once.
Him: Well we sitting with a pile of sawdust and no glue...2
