Does anyone else experience this?
One of my co-workers regularly breaks his Dev. Environment [on purpose]. I know it’s on purpose because he’s been seen by others doing it and caught out several times.
He then plays dumb and pretends he doesn’t know why it’s broken, so he can sit there reading the web/personal emails and eating, doing no work.
This really pisses me off.
Boi did I forget what a horror is to deal with Wndows...
I just wanted to shutdown a laptop to replace the SSD and a wifi card. Prepared everything, clicked on the [start] and there were only "Update and *" options. Wha the hell I thought, I could spare a few minutes. It's just a software update - should not take long!
Little did I know...
That was 45 minutes ago and It's still shutting down. And I'm just sitting with that screwdrived in my hand, looking at that blue screen and waiting. I feel stupid
UPDATE: I gave up. Long-pressed the POWER button. que sera, sera, right?
Lights go out. I press POWER again to boot it back up (forgot to save smth else). And it boots up back to the "SHUTTING fucking DOWN" AGAIN!!!8
I need help with my stupid website: I made a section that gives you a random YouTube video, but since the API key that I have has restrictions, I need a way to get random YouTube videos without the API key. I don't think it is possible (I went to page 2 of Google and didn't found anything there too!).
By the way, this is the website https://funtext.github.io/rndyoutub...
I hope someone can help me... And thank you in advance!15
A "partner" company has created a "REST" API we use on an online shop we developed to send all shop-related requests to.
At least once a month, something fails on their end and the customer calls us every time, expecting that we did something wrong, but it has never been us.
These "partners" do exactly zero testing, are extremely slow in solving API bugs, have almost no logging and have no monitoring on the API at all.
Today at noon, suddenly no customers were able to order anything anymore for 4 hours.
How the fuck can you run a business so unbelievably brainless that this keeps repeating monthly?
Time they fire all their "devs" and everyone in charge of the company and operations. TERMINATE.11
For me there are two kinds of bugs. The ones where you lean backward and the ones where you lean forward.
If you found a bug and you lean backwards in your chair resting your hands behind your head you feel proud and relieved that you found that sneaky bastard. Good for your dev soul.
If you lean forward, resting your forehead on your fists or on the desk then it was a very stupid bug. Not sneaky at all. Something plain obvious. It makes you doubting all your career and life choices you made so far. Like needing one hour to find out that you named the "MANIFEST.in" accidentally "MAINFEST.in"...
Want to share any embarrassing bugs to make me smile again?3
I'm at a loss and need advice. I fucking hate my new job. Three weeks in and I'm bored as shit. The work isn't substantial nor worthwhile, my co-workers have the personalities of an old shoe, and I'm overall frustrated by my own lack of motivation.
The work is easy and the pay is good, but this is by far the most miserable job I've ever had.
There is another job on the market that I'm more interested in. It's a teaching role for software development. In fact, I was a teacher two years ago in the states, and it was quite possibly the most stressful, yet fulfilling job I've ever had. I miss the feeling of educating and making a difference.
I've been considering leaving my current job after this client contract is finished and seeking employment back in the education field.
What do you guys think? What would you do if you were in my position?4
Started learning python async with curio and trio just two days ago, and I must say I'm really having a blast.
I have a few pending ideas to combine it with websockets (also first time I'm learning how to use them).
Haven't had this much fun with python in a while!
Also, sidequestion: how can return a value from an async function with curio or trio? I can't find a proper answer or example about that, other than some hints about memory channels in trio1
IBM makes the ABSOLUTE shittiest products. It doesn’t matter what it is. They just don’t fucking try. They don’t try anymore. I don’t know if they ever did. I am convinced that 99.999999% of the world’s problems are because of IBM’s shit. War? IBM. Famine? IBM. Gun violence in America? IBM. The BM has to stand for Bowel Movement because that’s all they are. They’re fucking shit. And you can disagree with me. I don’t fucking care because I’m right and you’re wrong. IBM. Is. Fucking. Shit.12
Difference between && and || - 1,7K damages
So last Friday we released a my mistake, which resulted in 1,7 K losses for the company. I feel like total idiot, because I messed up if’s and instead && used ||. Testing did not noticed, pull req was approved, nobody noticed it for four days. But that’s because of complex nature of the function and it’s application, but in the end - it was me who put it there. How do you cope with that? I am leaving next week for a better position in another company and it totally messed things up in my head.
Our company makes 70k in revenue so I doubt it’s gonna put a big dent in finances but I feel completely hopeless and like shit.14

Larry Tesler, a computer scientist who created the terms "cut," "copy," and "paste," has passed away at the age of 74 (17 Feb 2020).
In 1973, Tesler took a job at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) where he worked until 1980. Xerox PARC is famously known for developing the mouse-driven graphical user interface and during his time at the lab Tesler worked with Tim Mott to create a word processor called Gypsy that is best known for coining the terms "cut," "copy," and "paste".
In addition to "cut," "copy," and "paste" terminologies, Tesler was also an advocate for an approach to UI design known as modeless computing. It ensures that user actions remain consistent throughout an operating system's various functions and apps. When they've opened a word processor, for instance, users now just automatically assume that hitting any of the alphanumeric keys on their keyboard will result in that character showing up on-screen at the cursor's insertion point. But there was a time when word processors could be switched between multiple modes where typing on the keyboard would either add characters to a document or alternately allow functional commands to be entered.11
So I'm I'll right now and my boss needed to upload an app to Apple store.
So the app was made in unity and it already takes like 5m just to build from unity to xcode.
After that. He could not figure out how to upload the stuff bc there was a missing provisioning profile and then the team information was missing and then other tens of stuff.
Now android does not have this problem at all, like why is iOS so complicated? Fuck Apple1
How do you bribe *cough* "thank" your character references?
I know a few people who vouched for me in the past without me asking for it and a few others that I asked for permission to list down in my character references. Most of these people live in different cities, companies, and some are even in different countries so the usual "I'll treat you to dinner and fuck your brains out." wouldn't work.
Kidding aside, do those online gift certificates make decent gifts? I'd love to have an excuse to stalk someone, see what they like, and have it appear at their doorstep but that might be too much unless I can make a lantern out of them.
I'm thinking that a certificate for several orders of coffee in a decent coffee shop would be a good choice since that's the common denominator of all the developers I worked with - coffee love.
I'm leaving my current job in a week. What is a great prank I can pull off on my team before/after leaving the company?
I'm more interested in a long con which plays out slowly after I leave (maybe on April fool's?) Please share if you got any cool ideas or experience.
Context: I designed and built a web app which is used to manage stuff (CRUD) related to my project internally.
I would really love to hear some funny and non-destructive suggestions.12

So for the first time in a while I’ve kinda just dove into development for awhile and it was fun. Here’s my thoughts
I basically finished watching someone talk about some of the basics of Razor Pages and said fuck it I’m learning the hard way and just dive in and learn the rest of the way as I go.
Since I’m new to backend I’m just starting with a sign up then login form, using a JSON file as a database prototype (not permanent dont flame me pls)
I’m getting confused on how to interact with the database with the post request. I’ve seen people create services but I’ve also looked into and I’m kind of confused by Dependency Injection so I’m not sure which route I should take there
I’m also kind of GETting confused on how and when to use GET requests.
There’s just a lot of blanks I’m gonna have to fill in for myself, but yeah that’s where I’m at.
Following my first rant, my boss had the brilliant idea of running the old and the new architecture in parallel. I had advised that it won’t be ideal since the same Scala code was ingesting into 2 different Kinesis streams and one was running an old KCL written in Java where as other was consumed by a Firehose delivery stream(eventually we will be ingesting it into Firehose directly). I had told few manual + automated tests on Code as well as from a functionality of the new architecture and a set of tests for checking the integration of the new Producer code with Consumer.
The statement I got from my boss was “This is the test, we test it on production in parallel”. My boss had a brilliant idea to fucking test the new code on the production directly but running them in parallel without accounting for undefined behaviour it might cause in the current production system. I mean my boss should get a Nobel peace prize for shattering our mental peace.
Anywho, we started the deployment today at 5AM in the morning. I had all the aws services deployed. Was just waiting to deploy the new Collector code which we did at 5AM. Immediately after 5 minutes the system went bonkers, there was fire, blood, demons and I was smoking a cigarette with the biggest “I told you so smile” on my face. I’ve just written an email to my boss and have told him calmly that “Listen motherfucker, 90 percent of the software companies aren’t idiots to focus on testing and quality. We need to start spending time on testing and quality else we’ll again be in the same soup after few weeks again”.waiting for his reply1

"I can teach you the physics of riding a bicycle. Indeed, the classical mathematics is relatively straightforward. Gravity, friction, angular momentum, center of mass, and so forth, can be demonstrated with less than a page full of equations. Given those formulae I could prove to you that bicycle riding is practical and give you all the knowledge you needed to make it work. And you’d still fall down the first time you climbed on that bike."
How beautifully put8
Anybody watch the "Electric Dreams" episode called "Safe and Sound"?
This makes me think this is where we will end up with tech companies altering searches/websites for the individual. Making people believe things that are not true by representing false narratives. The actions of these individuals will reinforce narratives presented to the masses. There is already people finding that search engines and social media can sway elections by several percentage points. It seems like someone could use that same tech to target someone and turn them into a <fill in the blank here>. Urging them to some action. The rest of the world is like "WTF just happened?".
This is not a world I want.2
