That moment when you come to know that the weird behavior of your app is not due to your own incompetence but the bugs introduced by the OS itself!2
Friend was trying to send me a file via gmail to help her debug it. Gmail wasn't accepting the attachment, so I told her to upload it on github or pastebin. So she created a repository and sent me a link. After opening the link I saw the horror.
THERE WAS JUST ONE FILE IN THE REPOSITORY. THE WHOLE DAMN PROJECT IN A FUCKING ZIP FILE. I WOULD UNDERSTAND IF SHE WOULD HAVE UPLOADED THE SINGLE FILE WITH ERRORS IN IT BUT THIS IS SOME NEXT LEVEL SHIT.
Then on the next day I asked her about the fuckery she committed, she was like, "uh github wasn't letting me upload all the files at the same time so I made a zip file of the project and uploaded it."
PS. Most of the people in my class are supposed to know about how to use git and github, we're already in the 4th year of Engineering. Even our juniors know how to use the damn thing.4
One more reason to hate on StackOverflow... Apparently you cannot ask questions with certain tags if you are a newcomer or ain't active on StackOverflow. Just tried asking about sensormanager and they lost their shit! Talk about adding insult to injury! Pathetic Elitists!🤬2
😧 Remember when Nokia was making lumia devices?
Once they announced upcoming Lumia 1020 device and also a contest in which they asked users, how to make it better device and winners would win great prizes.
I went ahead asked them to use dual camers for better imagery and explained them in detail about how well it can boost the image quality. I even made a concept images and sent it to them, but they never replied.
What I see nowadays...
Every goddam android device is now coming out in market with dual camers... 😦8
So my little brother comes up to me saying, that he got C language classes in 11th grade so it would be nice of me if I install borland turbo C on his laptop.
Me: Uh, use something newer like gcc or clang.
He: No, teacher wants us to install borland C.
Me: Dude no. It's cancer.
He: ... You are not getting it.
Me: I am getting it buddy, nobody should be using that acient piece of crap that blinds the user as he works on it. (I know we can change colors).
He: .... *Leaves the room*.
I don't really get the Indian Education System's love for acient blue IDE.
I still get calls and texts from my non-dev friends asking for download links to that blue pile of shit and sometimes even their rants when it fails to run on their newer systems without dosbox wrapper. 😳
My similar other rant: https://devrant.com/rants/498891/...20
> Me Installs an app
> Launches it
> App greets me
> Just then google duo's monstrous ad comes up and shouts at me, "HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!!"
> Gets scared to death at 1 am1
Just decided to upgrade to fedora 28 and found out that it needs 2.5 GB data to download so I went for clean install and downloaded 1.7 GB worth iso of fedora 28 cinnamon edition.
> Lived booted it and it said cinnamon crashed, would you like to restart cinnamon? I clicked yes and it started smoothly.
> Carefully cleaned up my /home so it won't conflict later on.
> Installed it and booted.
> Cinnamon crashed.
> Tried everything, cinnamon crashed.
> Cinnamon crashed
Well. Fuck U Fedora/Cinnamon, whoever is behind this fuck up.1
When you do something awesome and remember that nobody knows jackshit about programming, but then you post about it on Facebook but only that you get likes from few people who likes all your posts anyway...
But then you remember that you are already doing a degree and so you share a link about that awesome thing with your degree mates but you still get usual "congrats" replies.5
Once I deleted my whole java project at night (10 PM) by using shift + delete keys accidentally while trying to delete old files. File recovery tools were not able to recover it. The worse part was that I had to present it on the next day. I didn't knew what to do, after banging my head on the table for an hour I called 2 of my friends to send me the backup of the repository. To my horror, they said that they never synced it locally! At last I called the last person whom I had sent the compiled JAR 1 month earlier for testing purposes.
He sent me the obsolete JAR at 12 AM. I knew that I had lost my all of my progress that I made in the month.
I calmed myself a bit and and decompiled the JAR, fixed some messed up stuff, and re-did the whole work till 4:30 AM and finally went to bed with those burning eyes (White eclipse theme + redshift).5
Some Indian mobile ISPs are blocking access to certain cryptocurrency sites and wallets. Using VPN 24x7 drains battery faster. Whereas using them for accessing one service and disabling them for other services is such a pain in ass... Fuck the government...😤3
I remember a story from my diploma college.
Sitting in the computer lab, having nothing to do and getting bored (internet was down, teacher didn't gave any assignment either and she wasn't present there at the moment) I decided to restart the PC which was running Windows XP at the moment. Grub showed up and I selected Ubuntu. I logged in and was swinging my mouse all over the screen. Just then, the lab attendant came up to me.
She: "WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?!"
Me: (Surprised) "... What do you mean?"
She: "Why you opened UUbbbaaanttu?!"
Me: "I was bored... And..."
She: "Do you even know how to use it? Don't mess with the computer, you will destroy it..."
Me: "Umm, I've been using Ubuntu for like 2 years. Don't worry."
She: "Close this *WINDOWS* and use xp"
She: "I will call HOD"
Me: "Jeez... Okay!" (I rebooted to xp again just because I didn't wanted her to shout at me again)
There were lot of incidents that happened to me similar to this one with that lab attendant...😂🤣1
My solution to avoid being a tech support guy to my friends. A friend pings me for tech support, then I ask them if they can do X thing on their system, and if they deny, I say, "Failing to do so = No support. So, GTFO." And then they say, "Oh shit! You are in Dev mode!"
When my friends ask me to root their devices...
To install custom rom: 0.1%
To do some random fuckery: 99.99%
Random fuckery like:
Friend 1: Root my phone!
Friend: I want to run this so called game hack tool.
Friend 2: Root my phone!
Friend: I want to hack my neighbor's wifi!
Friend 3: Root my phone!
Friend: I want to use netcut...
Me: But you don't have a wifi connection right?
Friend: When I use neighbor's wifi he slows down the internet! I bet he is watching some p***11
Since I don't have access to my card currently. There goes my virtual code buddy. It even makes those sounds. 😎
Here's my app: https://github.com/kvsjxd/...

I today went to computer store to upgrade my laptop's ram. My laptop currently runs Fedora Gnome. The shopkeeper told me that he can help me out by removing the "Chinese Windows" that my laptop is running...😂😂😂35
