Is it just me, or has @LastPass hired too many interns lately?
First: you can't login for hours before they actually go and admit they fucked up.
Now: the chrome extension has been deleted from the web store.
I'm a patient guy, but what on the unholy fuck is going on.
The LastPass extension in the Chrome Web Store was accidentally removed by us and we are working with the Google team to restore it ASAP. Thank you for your understanding and patience in the meantime.12
What a day.
Reviewing and merging a months worth of work, configuring cloudformation for the new changes, and deploying to the staging environment when err mer gawd AWS decides to shit it's self.
Nothing like spotting "rollback in progress" and then not being able to access the EC2 instance... or ANY instance for that matter, from the console, so I'm like fine , I'll just wait for the roll back to finish.... it's usually only 5-10 minutes but no.... 3 hours later.
Guess I know what I'll be trying again tomorrow.
Why must some devs make life complicated!!!!!!
So, here I am enjoying my day (well enjoying the meetings that are taking me away from working) when I get a bug report that script X isn't sending out emails anymore.
Ok that's weird, this as far as I know uses the same email class as every other email being sent out from this project, and they all work.
Let's go have a quick dig...
/*do a bunch of stuff*/
Is being used, well that's odd, it should be $emailService->send()
But what ever, it's probably an old wrapper for legacy sake since this script was written years ago. But nope, I almost cried, it's a wrapper for mail() isolated into this script.
Like for fucks sake, why in the hell would this be used when there's an entire fucking class that's tried and tested and only looses 1 email every few months, coz shit happens.
Errrrr.... sometimes i really wonder why people can't just do what they need to do the first time round.4
that weird anxious feeling you get when trying to work out if this is a good idea or not.
"There was a problem downloading the required files"
OK, well that lasted long.
MS cant even have their installer finish anymore.8
Anyone wanting to get a bundle of steam games + help us Aussies with our Bush fires.
Now's your chance!!
Humble Bundle is donating 100% of purchases of this bundle to Wires, RSPCA and WWF.
CentOS 8.1 has hit the downloads page people's!!!!
I guess it's too early for release notes yet but what ever, I know where my next few days will be spent making sure projects can be lifted up without to much hassle.
Holy fuck EA (yea I went there)
So here I am playing NFS Heat, and my laptop is hot enough to cook eggs on the keyboard, no joke, yet spec wise I should have 0 issues running this game.
I switch on the turbo cool (basically spin the internal fans at full speed... It's an MSI) and this usually covers any heating issues, nope... not this time.
this fucker of a fan can't keep up , so I've turned down the settings from ULTRA, that's depressing, to Medium... it feels like 2006 showed back up, but here's this laptop still burning a whole in my fingers.
My GPU (GTX1060 6GB) is running at 95'c on Medium graphics, and LOW looks like I fell into a 8bit world with slow ass rendering.
Guess I'm going to need to get some cooling assistance for this thing.
Thank you EA for turning my 2.5k laptop into a stove top, I appreciate it.
I guess the name checks out, "heat"12
What's the general opinion around here on Authy for 2FA?
I've been down the road of phone wipes and phone swaps before that blow out the Google Auth codes which is nothing but a royal pain in the ass to get access back to all the accounts setup.
Authy having encrypted backups gives me some level of belief they can do what I want them to do, but I figured I would ask around before transferring over since... well that's a pain in the ass too 😂21
Happy new year everyone.
For everyone yet to catch up to midnight, let this be a pre-new year post!5
2020 dev goal.
To build a 10 inch laptop using a RPi 4 (4GB), so far I've come to the conclusion that it will be self powered with a solar power battery pack, a HDMI screen and a full size 104 key keyboard with trackpad or just a mouse if it's to large.
The case I'm currently staring at a pile of lego going 🤔🤔🤔 this could probably work.1
Or happy holidays for the people who hate Christmas for what ever reason.9
Let me just open by saying, I do enjoy a random post on the internet giving PHP a bit of appreciation.
But then I'm reminded why some people shouldn't be allowed to write articles for developers or junior developers when they them selves are oblivious to the content they are writing.
So... here I am scrolling down LinkedIn and spot this headline "why php is the best choice for 2020"
Well that caught my attention (you know, as a php dev spotting a positive php article and all), so I went and had a look and by god I was ready to rip my eyes out at the mis-information being written in this article.
I shall let you all enjoy the punishment I endured rather then bring spoilers
Yay I just got hit by the spam ban hammer, either that or these spammers are upvoting posts now 🤨12
This only took a couple of years to make.
a journey of @C0D4's life over the years on devRant.
Who knew taking a screen shot every now and again would pay off 🤗5
Sometimes, being the only fullstack dev with access to a lot of systems gives you the ability to introduce functionality that:
A) prevents future errors
B) introduces new validations to users to make sure A) is prevented.
C) apply these changes to different projects
But most importantly...
D) without a single person in management getting involved or having to sign it off.
It's like running a company you own, but without owning it.
Granted with such power, comes the trust and responsibility of deploying changes with the adequate testing being done prior and handling change management, but fuck, sometimes I wonder if "god mode" for lack of a better term, is too much, or just enough to get the job done without the politics.7
That's a hard one.
I guess it's a toss up between Salesforce APis and Cloudflare.
Both are straight forward and work within minutes of getting started, and both are well documented to the point, you only need a basic understanding of what you are doing or trying to manipulate to get it up and running.
If only AWS could do the same 😅1
It's the FUCKING....
I don't know about you lot, but it's felt like a long time coming since Monday morning.
Several concurrent projects pulling you in different directions take its toll.
Oh and to answer your question.
Yes, I am mentally unstable right now 🤪4
GitHub Beta for mobile,
A brief initial look reveals you can create an manage issues, view pull requests however you can't create them and browse code within a repo.
Oh and hook up to organisations - I'm not in one for this account, so can't browse that section.4
Oh my gawd, it's only been years since this should have been a thing.
But today, since no ones beat me to it, let me share Github's official mobile app - currently taking beta signups for both IOS and Android.
3 years, part time, $0.
I used to volunteer my time to an old text based rpg, handling code changes, sysadmin maintenance and the likes - back when those were a thing in the mid 2000's and money wasn't my issue in life - free for them, experience for me - win win!
Was something to get my hands dirty back in the day and contribute to an active community, but since then that place has shut down and been disbanded.24
I guess dfox found a way to kill the meme category after all.
Some side affects though, but let's all celebrate in #NoMemeDay.3
Those feelings you get when you know @dfox can see you in he's rear view mirror.
That awkward moment you beat Goolgle at its own game.
Inspired by @NotHappy's post https://devrant.com/rants/2301137/... to fix my issues,
Now what do i do?19
Ah certbot you sexy pain in the ass.
# certbot renew
> "Error: unable to parse files ..."
> 2 certificates renewed.
🤔I don't know how you worked, but you keep working!!2
That sad sad moment you spot someone returning HTML in an ajax request 🥺
Why lord must you punish me?12
Who said corporate life had to be dull.
Sometimes you just need to step outside and enjoy the view.9
