So there's this developer I work with. Let's call him Kevin.
I am a UX designer, former Developer from IBM - but I really love design, so I made the switch. My background however, usually makes working with Developers easy.
But not this guy! I provided a clickable prototype complete with code to easily inspect with Dev tools for measurements. I provided mobile references for some screens but not all.
Kevin submits screenshots for me to review the design. Looks nothing like the prototype, so I get out my Wacom tablet and basically draw redlines over the screenshot. "No border here, 22px should be 20px, etc."
His response was:
"I need you to say exactly what you one (want?) each pages and mobile pages to look like, text size of the font, etc.
You did a lot of red marking, so I am asking for clarification."
So basically asking for red line specs. I asked a month ago if he wanted all the mobile screens, or if what I provided was enough along with the style guide. He agreed. So now I'm majorly pissed off.
Maybe it's also the fact that one of the other developers has to hold his hand, because everything he does is bad. 😡 And his lack of ability to articulate a damn sentence effectively drives me crazy. Cherry on top, I suppose.
Would love to bring this up with my boss. ♥️ And suggestions. 😍3
*googles "Manjaro wacom support" *
*installed everything available in AUR to get Wacom tablet to work on Manjaro Xfce4*

- Bottle of coke light (so I don't get fat)
- Auna Mic 900-b (I used to do videos on youtube, though they were so bad i've deleted them lol)
- Two HP 24es screens (one of them broke when I let it fall while switching overheating cables)
- Mech keyboard with MX - Red
- Razer Naga 2014 (I regret buying that already)

Damn frontend crap.
The fact that you have to mask all of the disease with processable versions of css, html & js is bad enough, but there are like 6 dialects of each bandaid, and every project has traces of each.
The the design kid tells me to run this grunt script, frontender number two screams "no, dont use grunt, we use gulp! or was it bower? I guess just run it through yeoman, it's easy!", after which the third fucking shitty hipster yells "No that's outdated, just edit the webpack file, and then run yarn install... oh but run npm upgrade --global yarn first"
Did you just fucking tell me to upgrade a fucking package manager with another package manager?
Composer, gem or cargo are not always without problems. But at least us backenders have our fucking shit together. The worst we have to deal with is choosing Python 2 vs 3, or porting some old code so the server can migrate to PHP7.
The next person to tell me they found this awesome tool to manage his other tools... I'll fucking throw your latte all over your wacom tablet.2

So, yesterday I made a post asking for a recommendation on what to give my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day (He is a programmer and starting to learn how to develop video games) I gave him a Wacom, two online courses for Unity in Udemy, and, a portable coffee maker (since he previously complaint about the coffee in his office) What do you guys think? 😎4
Why the hell did someone remove the wacom kernel module in android since 4.x? It wasn't hurting any body and instead gave people the ability to connect their wacom tablets to USB OTG compatible devices. As a result we have few apps that have wacom support in play store and shitty reputation that the rotten apple is better for all things media.
And for me it means I have to:
* Figure out a way to root my device
* locate correct version and configuration of currently running kernel.
* set up cross compilation toolchain
* build the kernel module
* transfer it to the device
* insmod it manually
* say a few prayers
.... All I wanted to do was paint 😢
iPad + Apple pencil ONLY for note taking during lectures
Yay or nay?
Got any other combos that arent ms surface with a pen? (Bad experience cause of ssd failures)
Or what about those Wacom tablets? Are they even good in terms of pen to screen response latency?
Educate me if you saw me as an ignorant piece of f but are there any tablet with stylus pen support that are almost input-lag free like the apple pencil with iPad? I once tried it in the store and boi did it truly impress me, also I haven't seen anything else close to it, I tried the Samsung ones, they didn't look to me as fast as the apple pencils
Do you have like out-of-the-box ideas that are not pen and paper? Do write them down8
Ok so before i ask this, I feel I need remind everyone that it is the Lord's day and that Siri has already begun attempting to spread the gospel to developers this weekend. Not only that, but y'all are all one big happy linux family.
With that said...
Let's talk linux distros. I know ubuntu is for beginners, but honestly everything I read on it tells me that its exactly what I'm not looking for in a "new" dev. environment. I've been informed already that a hackintosh would be a lot more troublesome to set up, but the comparisons of ubuntu to macOs are so alike that I kinda feel like trying to commit the subtle Differences to memory would end up driving me crazy[er], and that in the long run if I wanted a mac os then I would be better off taking the time to do the hackintosh in the first place.
In any case, I don't want either, not for my first build. Rather I wanna try something small, maybe even a couple of something smalls, that may take a little more effort but I will be able to look back at them after they're built and be able to start attempting to decipher what's what.
So whats a good beginner distro for a not quite so beginner. I'm only looking to run strictly dev tools: nvim, ink, gimp, quantum maybe, and then some sort of lightweight audio program that I can make simple recordings and mixes on. The latter just being for hobby purposes. It'll need a simple gui, if for nothing else, something to look at while I consider building my own, but again I don't want a lot to look over and sort thru, just a few simple things that I can dig into the source maybe find out how their working. Also I tend to forget filenames and directories so navigation can be a pain still sometimes without something besides -ls to go by.
Additional ++'s would be the ability to program my multitouch trackpad along with my wacom pencil. Beyond that tho, think I'm open to trying whatever.
I guess the simplest way to put it is that it doesn't necessarily have to be running out of the box, rather I want it lightweight and easy to customize out of the box. As far as general browsing and day to day life, my macOs will still most likely suffice til I get a larger distro and desktop built, but I want to start small, not easy.
I've already put virtual box on here, and some of these i'm considering are less than a couple hundred mb in their zipped form so I can weigh a few options first hand, I just want to hear some opinions on them before I try because a couple of these I've never heard of til today. SliTaz & Puppy being two these. Also there's Zenwalk, vector, Salix and Sparky that I think I have heard of.
I brought these up to my cousin earlier and he clued in on that most were still Slackware (we've been back and forth a couple of times over the past month) and I'm pretty sure left the conversation a bit annoyed to say the least lol. But I honestly wonder if he doesn't think that I have just become obsessed with the name or something. He's been pushing me to ubuntu all along, but maybe he's just trying to avoid me bugging the shit out of him when I go to install it ~\_(",)_/~
But seriously, the whole adage "learn ubuntu you learn ubuntu, learn slack you learn linux" is kinda sticking with me and not only that but the more options you give me to mess with out of the box is jus the more options I'm going to take the time to fuck with, arguably a waste of time if I end up never actually using the option. Not only that but should I get used to a big linux ui and then switch to a smaller one for learning, I'm going to be looking for the stuff I was used to using in the other.29
Hey guys, my boyfriend is a software developer and he wants to start developing video games, he would like to design games but is not good at drawing, I have been advised that a wacom would be a good gift for someone that wants to become a game developer, what do you guys think? Is it a good gift even if he is not good a drawing?4
