After 16 years of porn addiction, I've finally realized that the only way to stop any addiction, is to take control of your mind. Nobody can help you, except make you realize the source of the problem or factors that cause it.
It's strange to describe how the mind works, sometimes we need stuff in our lives because we need to spend time on something to avoid the emptiness.
Free yourself from the things you love the most, in my case I love playing video games, it helps me feel complete, but in all honesty, I don't need it. I like drinking energy drinks, but in the end, I don't need that too.
My point is that once you find a way to deal with the things you can't live without, you find a way to live with it.
The only reason I watch porn is to reduce stress or have something "fun" to do.
As Bruce Lee once said: Be formless, be shapeless, be water my friend.
I like to think that he means to let the urge flow within you, but don't let it control you.27
This site came up when I ragingly typed "HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO CREATE A FUCKING APPIMAGE AND WHY IS THERE NOTHING ON STACKOVERFLOW ON IT" into Google because the devs of AppImage just put "Look how these people did it" in their documentation instead of a helpful walk-through on what everything does and it was 2AM and I already spent several hours trying to find anything about the creation of AppImages.
I like the rants here, so hello everyone!14
I hate Microsoft for not making Office run on Linux. It's the only reason I have to use a fucking MacBook instead of a Linux laptop. No Microsoft, I'm not going to run windows on my laptop. The system ist too much different to my production systems.
I hate Microsoft for not thinking about the consequences of not providing a Linux version. I have to use the fucking Apple Finder in my daily job. I have to buy a thousand dongles to connect anything to my laptop.18
I had a friendly argument with a person over comparing visual studio with Xcode,the first thing that came into my mind when he said visual studio was visual studio code (keep in mind visual studio and visual studio code are completely different visual studio is an ide while visual studio code is a code editor )
I was arguing that there’s no point comparing an ide specifically made for iOS app dev with a code editor with intellisense with better code predictions as it would have made more sense if he was comparing a code editor with another code editor like atom or sublime.
This argument went on for a couple of mins in a group chat
Later on I found out he was talking about visual studio and not visual studio code which actually is an ide used for app dev.
This whole time I thought he was talking about vs code and he thought I was talking about visual studio 😂
I ended up agreeing it was my mistake for not getting the message in the first place 😂7
We are a small size product based company. There was a change in management a year back and the new management decided to fire the entire engineering team one by one. I was hired as full time back-end developer (C++). Just after I joined they removed the last 2 engineers from the previous regime and handed over devops and Python API development to me as well.
There was no documentation for the main product which was a sophisticated piece of software. There were no comments in the code as well. I had to go through line by line (roughly 100,000 lines of code).
Then they decide to hire more devs.Turned out to be false hope. They hired interns who had no programming knowledge.
Now they got two clients who are interested in using the service. They lured them using empty promises. The product is not stable. The cloud infrastructure is not at all ready. The APIs are a mess. I don't know which one to work on.
Worst part is that there is no other technical person in the office.
I'm thinking about quitting now. I don't know why I haven't already.😖😖2
OPPO sure has the BALLS to fucking install ads on MY FUCKING PHONE, first they force installed “Hot Apps” and “Hot Games” and I can’t remove it. I was like “Yeah sure whatever”. Then they installed sticker ads on THE BUILT IN KEYBOARD. “Ok”. This fucking shit actually installed ads on my fucking notification panel, and pop up a warning every once in two days asking me to”🔥 Update your software to latest version 💢” WITH THAT KIND OF TEXT AND EMOTICONS
FUCK YOU OPPO14
I was trying to understand the source code of aircrack-ng which is written in C today.
Suddenly I saw sth strange !
WTF !! what is #ifdef ??? I've never seen that before !
So I told myself : hey ! You have to download a complete C programming course!
so I did , but when I skimmed through the titles , again:
WTF ! I know all of them! So why the fuck I could not fully understand the code ? Where can I find anything I missed ?
So... I'm asking U :)12
Somewhere around the world that I call fatherland and the where the internet speeds are fucking terrible, baccalaureate exams got leaked on facebook years ago. Two unrelated things? WRONG.
It's been years now, every fucking baccalaureate exams period social media websites go down nationwide. No Facebook or Twitter. They do that rather than installing signal jammers in examination centers.
I'm not angry. I'm Just feeling a little urge to plant some C4 in one of "COUNTRY Telecom" centers but I'm mostly fine.8
So to give you a feel for what evil, clusterfuck code it was in: this projects largest part was coded by a maniac, witty physicist confined in the factory for a month, intended as a 'provisional' solution of course it ran for years. The style was like C with a bit of classes.. and a big chunk of shared memory as a global mud of storage, communication and catastrophe. Optimistic or no locking of the memory between process barriers, arrays with self implemented boundary checks that would give you the zeroth element on failure and write an error log of which there were often dozens in the log. But if that sounds terrifying already, it is only baseline uneasyness which was largely surpassed by the shear mass of code, special units, undocumented madness. And I had like three month to write a simulator of the physical factory and sensors to feed that behemoth with the 'right' inputs. Still I don't know how I stood it through, but I resigned little time afterwards.
Well, lastly to the bug: there was some central map in that shared memory that hold like view of the central customer data. And somehow - maybe not that surprisingly giving the surrounding codebase - it sometimes got corrupted. Once in a month or two times a day. Tried to put in logging, more checks - but never really could pinpoint the problem... Till today I still get the haunting feeling of a luring memory corruption beneath my feet, if I get closer to the metal core of pure C.1
A question guys, I'm a web dev since 2012, started with php, then shifted to frontend, for 3 years my main was PHP and basic HTML CSS, in 2017 I shifted to / did courses on vuejs, angular and react (loved angular the most) also laravel. Have also dabbled a bit in python, for crawling and mining. The problem is I've never worked with a team or for a full fledged Dev company, so I'm unsure as to how to judge my growth and whether I'm moving in the right direction. I feel like I need a lot better understanding of Linux usage and server control, or should I learn nativescript etc.
What do you suggest? Should I simply look for a mentorship program, if yes any clue where?3
Not dev per sé but annoys see he'll out of me on a monthly basis... 30 day password expiration, how does that make things more secure?! The thing that makes it worse is that I can't use any previous 28 passwords or anything too similar... Now I'm stuck with a 36 character password which I have to put in everytime my work machine decides to lock out... Which is less than a minute of not touching it.
What's that? No I can't turn around and answer a question because if I do I'll be taking 20mins off of my future career prospects as I'm working on leveling up my inevitable arthritis4
The other day I tried to have a debate with someone.
We had an interesting subject and I found just the perfect YouTube video (All 6 minutes of it, rather than 2.5 hours is as traditional when trying to drown someone in YouTube videos..) which would open out the debate on all sides.
But they refuse to watch it, saying it says X and Y, when in fact it says Y and Z..
I had hoped we would talk about Z.
Reminds me of a climate group I joined, again a YouTube link, but instead of a debate, we had a refusal to watch said video because it was obviously wrong..
Next I imagine is "I'm not going to read that book, because its obviously wrong because it has the word "The" in the title.."
Or, I'm not going to listen to person X, because they are always wrong, someone else said so !
Must protect those ivory towers..1
Fucking bugs everywhere. Normies around me say Google is the best, flawless company.
I can find bugs literally in seconds after hitting on a product.
Shows me a 'Like' button on my own post. Why the fuck would I like my own post?
As stupid as it can be, people actually do and I never understood why.
And when I try to like my own review (because I am fucking cool nibba), it throws a stupid error.
Not even a valid one.
This is SOOOO FUCKING ANNOYING.1
