Fucking gets me every time1
Linux... Is shitty... Ok it just is. I've tried all kinds of variations and they all just... Urgh
Now I know... I know devs are meant to love it ... But compare it to windows
(Yes windows fucks up more) but when it works it works.
... Windows isn't perfect... But it doesn't try to be.
Linux has that feel of... Clearly made by a dev... It works consistently but doesn't take into account how people want to use something...
Linux is something you have to learn to love. And I'm sure I could.
But with windows it's intuitive it's straight forward
I feel like if I was to pick up windows having never used it... I would know how it works. I could at least use it go online and watch videos do the basics... In Linux ... No it's not as easy, sometimes not possible
An os you should just know how to do everything you want to do, and not have to download tonnes of shit to get it that way
It is, the future... But holy fuck get your act together Linux65
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. Some people.... urgh!1
Sitting in the computing lab with my lab partner and the debugging duck. Shortened for hilarity.
Partner: Urgh, there's something wrong with my python code.
Me: Hmm, let's see. Oh, by the way you look good in that shirt.
P: Okaaay, thanks... Are you hitting on me?
M: Seriously, James? IT'S BEEN 8 BLOODY MONTHS AND YOU'VE ONLY JUST NOTICED!?
P: Oh, I'm straight.
M: Oh, eh, so what's wrong with your program?
Trust me to make everything awkward. Not looking forward to tomorrow 🙄🤐3
Fuck the NBN - you aussies will know!
So apparently Fixed IPs are not a thing for HFC connections unless you have a business account.
Are you fucking kidding me?
Although I didn’t pay for a fixed ip on adsl and it states it’s “dynamic”, mind you it hasn’t changed in 6 years... so it may aswell be fixed right? Right?
Now I have to go explore DDNS with Cloudflare, looks like a api call on ip change will do the trick but urgh.
Ps: I finally.... made it to the nbn - well that’s next week...
only 3 years overdue since my first “NBN ready” letter 😂2
I think its time to go to bed 😐
Edit: i forgot to attach the image
Edit 2: Where the fuck is the picture

So, those of you who have been in quarantine for more than a week, how are you keeping your sanity?
Specially the news, goddamn, people are so stupid. The number of infected around here has been skyrocketing so I'm not even afraid of getting the virus anymore, I'm more afraid of the damn numbers going up.
Also, those of you who don't live alone, need not reply. 😝
I like my independence, but goddamn this feels a lot like being in luxury solitary confinement. Plus, I have to cook for myself.
Me - sits down to code
Windows - need to install small update
Me - skip
Windows - HELL NO UPDATE
6 hours later.......
Why THE FUCK is Google Maps React just a gray rectangle unless we resize the window and it magically appears.
Comment banners, urgh! >:(

Write a FUNCTION you lazy piece of ****!2
I don't see the jobs.
-- I added them.
I don't see the "app-name".
-- Well, I have added them via an abbreviation "an".
Why though? That's so confusing. Why would I look for that? Assume I am a new employee. I would not know what it means.
-- You'll get used to it.
I. DON'T. WANT. TO. GET. USED. TO. IT. Why would you waste time by hiding necessary information behind non-saying abbreviation? Clarity counts.
Right,i consider myself a pretty damn good dev... I can back up everything I say to prove that I'm right on not lying to clients
But I see all these devs who do lie... Who withold data from clients cause it's not great.
And I go to clients and prove that they are lying not doing it right.
But I know saying to them... Oi your current devs are shit fire them ... Isn't a good way to get them as a client
Me and my company are open and honest ... we go all out on all of our projects. I work nonstop. It is seriously baffling the kind of developers are out there and how bad they can be I'm... Seriously just.... Urgh 😖
How should I go about talking to clients without going ... Fire them quick or saying that in a ... More humble respectful way...
I need more clients ... To survive and I don't mind coming across as a dick as long as they understand what's going on and that they are people ripped off by these asshole devs5
We are having a history lesson updating a system that was built around 1985.
It's a custom built sales and customer tracker, programmed in Clipper, which is a superset of xBase, that is a language that appears to be data orientated. DosBox and Dosemu have both failed to run it, the programs loads and indexes just fine, but when it gets to the program dashboard it shows the options and doesn't seem to accept any input, though it appears to be running as the time updates (any ideas?)
Tried compiling the source using harbour, compilation fails, something about "time" having too many arguments and other obscure errors. Urgh.
Dbf files are easily converted and opened but really we want to view the working program to see the relations so we can translate the data models.
It's both fascinating and infuriating at the same time.
Urgh clients, it doesn't work ? Ok how bout you tell me the error that's causing it and I might be able to help
All I get is it does nothing 😐
And you think I can diagnose a problem that apparently does nothing, from at least 10miles away with no remote desktop 😞
So. Many. Irrelevant. Emails.
It's getting to the point where I'm considering running a course for recruiters called "how not to annoy the fucking shite out of the people you're trying to hire / not be be reported as spam".
That moment when: You're asked to quickly code a fake login screen and you have a deadline to add it to 10 devices before 2pm.
First build: Forgot to force it to be on top, forgot to add closing preventions
Second build: Due to it going on tablets, it needed an onscreen keyboard, but being on top all the time means the builtin onscreen keyboard doesn't work.
Third build: Forgot to add try and catch exceptions which caused crashes
Final build: Avast kept closing and opening it due to DeepScan
What Im doing with my life, Hurricane edition.
So Im still working in a site that I have keep saying Im about to launch Soon™, most of it was already working for a while but the notification system was Youtube-levels of ""broken"", I personally didnt wanted to spend time on it fixing it since I really wanted to launch the damn thing already to show the world I havent been wasting my time/shortening my lifespan doing fuck all ... but I remember that your average normie wants eyecandy and all that stuff ... urgh ok fine, will try to fix and that I did ... but in doing so I ended from a ~90% fully working site to a crippled ~50% "working" site.Also some neat info for those prepping for the hurricane https://imgur.com/gallery/tzv0d, also because some stuff going with my life, it makes me aware of all the homeless people out there and hope they have proper shelter and such.2
The new windows subsystem for Linux might severely slow compilation time for me.
Microsoft is releasing a preview of WSL 2 which works fundamentally different to WSL 1, which I currently use.
For those who don't know, WSL (or Windows Subsystem for Linux) used to be a compatibility layer, which "translated" Linux syscalls to Windows syscalls. This enables the execution of Linux applications on Windows. The new WSL (WSL 2) doesn't do any of that, instead, it is a highly optimised Virtual Machine.
So don't get me wrong from a performance point of view there is no Issue, RAM and CPU usage is truly astonishingly small and performance of Linux applications is much improved over WSL 1.
BUT, apparently, accessing files stored on Windows through Linux is now piss slow.
Great, truly outstanding.
Why is this a problem? Well, I use WSL to develop c++ Linux applications using CLion, the way this works is that you set up an ssh server in WSL, which CLion uses to do compilations.
One _needs_ to have the project files stored on Windows as otherwise CLion on Windows can't access them.
If I wanted a Linux VM I would have installed one.
my biggest insecurity... I don't know, I have some problems with people who only stay with one idea, technology, pattern and cannot change, I am afraid of becoming that3
Got new isp, 200 200 very good speed yet the routers wireless doesn't go through a fucking brick wall urgh. Can't watch video from the other side off the wall xD3
SSL issues when behind a proxy.. i think.
Troubleshooting and solving issues are difficult when you just follow a guide about something you need :i
Why is it so fucking impossible to install SINGLE packages for texlive on ubuntu when my windows (miktex) can do that on its own?!?!
tried different solutions (e.g. tlmgr), nothing works reliably, I'm just texlive-fulling now, urgh.4
I hate VCS integration in IDEs. No I do not want to add the new fucking file to Git, IntelliJ. Urgh6
In general why do many companies hide the price of things like renewals, upkeep, etc. Just tell me how much urgh1
Urgh... No exceptions in Rust annoys me. Now you only have the choice between "this didn't work please handle this error, thank you ^-^" and "you fool, prepare for annihilation". So basically if anything remotely serious happens your programs dead and there's nothing you can do about it. I don't get why people have this hate for exceptions. Everytime a new language gets made it's always either "ew it has exceptions" or "it's so nice it doesn't even have exceptions". NOOO! They can deal with serious situations in the best possible way and they can be statically checked (so no "but they're so complex and unpredicable" stuff please). If you can expect an exception they shouldn't be used in the first place (eventhough they are absolutely no less good than Option returntypes or whatever, just different) but in cases when it's impossible to predict an error they really shine. And not having them makes your language worse. If a device driver accesses illegal memory it should throw an exception, so instead of the computer shitting the bed, first the offending function has a chance to resolve the problem at it's root, then a few functions up the call stack, the general control functions of the device drivers can handle it and restart the operation if applicable, and even if the driver fails to handle it, the OS can jump in and restart the driver, log an error and do whatever. It's absolutely beautiful: This hierarchical ramp from near the accident site to more high level operations code ensures the error can be caught at the right level of abstraction without introduction a lot of boilerplate. If everything fails and nobody can handle it *then* the program or kernel or whatever can panic.4
Spent half a day trying to setup a proper javadoc aggregation mechanism for a multi module gargle project. Urgh.. Why isn't there a good plugin to do this?
Can someone help me if they are aware of an existing plugin that works for gargle to do this?
Tried nexus aggregator for gradle. Doesn't work
I'm needing an idea for a new project. I began tinkering with one of my old C# projects and I'm just **disgusted** with the amount of crap in there.
What do you guys think, should I finish it or move on?
Any good ideas on how to find another idea for a new project?3
Anyone ever heard of OpenSCAD? If you have, there's a clone called Scorch CAD on Android - I both love and hate the thing. Okay, it's awesome to be able to write 3D programs on my phone, but mother of god, why is it closed source?! I mean, surely that's a GPL violation. I'm contacting the developer. He makes no money off it anyway - why is it proprietary?! Urgh.
I get a simple exception because of a connection reset, can't catch it becouse it "happens in external code" urgh, fuck you .net core..
