I have a new rule for life:
Never mess with your environments after 11 pm
At the very least, I end up with a massive fucking headache. Every fucking time
Just go to bed1
Just a word of advice for the project managers and clients out there:
Just because your website CAN be built in React, doesn't mean it SHOULD be built in React
Sometimes, vanilla js is the better option5
My faithful laptop, which has been with me since I was a student, is finally starting to die.
It's still usuable, but the battery life is getting shorter, the screen is getting dimmer, and it's slowing down
Any recommendations for a new one? I'd like to keep the price under $500
Any OS is fine9
Me: Alright. I just wrote some code, and now its 11:00 pm
My brain: test it
Me: no, I need to sleep
My brain: just test it
And people wonder why I'm sleep deprived2
I’m thinking about learning dart, and I want to know your thoughts on it
Is it good or at all useful?2
I just spend 30 minutes debugging a JS bug that was caused by using the array method 'slice' instead of 'splice'
Why tf does js have 2 methods that are similar in function and damn near identical in name
FUCK THIS SHIT6
Alright. I was testing some js, only to find a mysterious bug. No error message, but the program isn't doing what I want
I spend some time debugging, but everything seems to be working fine. Strange. But lets keep looking
After almost 30 minutes of this shit, I find my mistake
I TYPED THE WRONG FUCKING EQUALITY SIGN. THERE WAS NO FUCKING BUG TO BE FOUND, I'M JUST AN IDIOT. FML5
Why the fucking hell is SQL pronounced as 'sequel'. What turdsniffing fucker whose pet rock has more brain than him made that decision
"I have 3 letters. Lets pronounce them as a full word"
English is fucking hard enough. Don't make it more complicated then it needs to be21
Fuck Google's extension security policies.
For some fucking reason, I can fetch JSON from a http:// source, yet I can't get google's own map API because I have to load it in a <script> tag.
I get why you want to keep things secure, but at least figure out a way to load your own goddamn map
Am I the only one that has a file along the lines of impress.py that literally just prints a bunch of programming buzzwords and random numbers to the terminal, in order to impress non-programmer friends?3
I just think about how far ahead I am of the people who think I'm 'hacking things' when they see me using a CLI3
There is no better feeling in the world than when you finally get to close all the tabs you were using to figure out a bug4
Fuck the overhyping of python. Its barely a real language, since you can import basically all of it. The syntax is annoying, the programs aren't scalable, and honestly, there's probably a language out there that can do what your python program can.
I'm not saying that Python isn't useful, it's great for small sidescripts and machine learning, but stop acting like it's a replacement for every other language out there.
Python is not the single greatest advancement in programming. Stop acting like it is13
Web Designer: "Alright! My CSS is looking good. Let me just move this div a little bit to the left"
