its finally being blown out of existence!!!!!!
Farewell flash, my old friend. you have no place in the web today11
Oh boy, I think I need a new pair of pants.
GitLab (!Github) have improved their ci/CD pipelines to allow you to chain jobs 🥳🤤
So here I am, skrewing around with the Google Authenticator app and the dodgiest base32 code generator I've ever built and generating a 56 char unique ID, and a 8 digit time based code.
WTF, all these products, services and logins that use 6 digit codes... and this fucking thing can handle 8 without breaking 😑
Now... to hook it into a QR code class... and spit out an image I can actually scan, without calling google charts api.
I can't say I've written one of those before 🙃9
A day in the life of @C0D4
Yay it's Tuesday.....
So morning goes something like coffee, yea no coffee no @C0D4, get to the office, get busy with normal morning routine - run the almost automated scripts I have to run - delete the 100+ emails I don't actually need from last night, read the 2 I do care about - yea 2 freakin emails out of 117 🤦♂️
But what ever that's what outlook rules are for... except I actually have to glimpse over them all just in case something of mine broke.
Go get another coffee,
Start working through the days tickets - ok cool nothing major to worry about, let's get back to writing tests from yesterday.
Well fuck that was a bad decision, no matter what I do this little fucker won't pass, yet doing this process step by step, detail for detail, it works - no issues, but automate this fucker and it screams its head off.
So fine, I give up and go to lunch,
Come back... spend next 3 hours on this 1 problem... 1 FREAKING problem 🤦♂️🥴🤦♂️🥴🤦♂️
This thing has beaten me, and for no apparent reason - it just doesn't like running under a test scenario.
Would have given up hours ago, except its a vital piece of code I'm trying to cover 😑 of course it is.
Well somewhere in there I managed to do a deployment for another project and change a few things in there.
This week is starting to look like hell,
Yay hump day tomorrow!!!!!
That's something, the week is coming to an end.... right? Please.... right!!!6
Soooo it's Monday........ 🤯
@C0D4 started the day fixing current projects defects (4 tickets smashed before coffee 💪)
Then after coffee, run a test coverage report and see a significant decline over the past few months, so spends a couple hours adding more tests to get some areas filled in - meh, nothing like 50+ lines per test... to test a if() statement but whatever - complex scenarios will be complex to get too, but no my tests break and I'm missing data I didn't know about🤦♂️
So let's comment all that out, and go to lunch ... mmmm lunch.
Get back, start working on those again, and then get handed a new issue, so comment that all back out again, ( ok I know what you're thinking, but I'm working in an environment that does not use git for deployments - don't ask, real pain in the ass I haven't had time to invest into yet - but as code versioning only) anywho, starts to workout this new issue but don't figure it out, enter a 30 minute meeting.................. yea that was 2 hours later but was a very practical whiteboard session only to work out I have something like 16-20 weeks of work over 4-5 projects to get out in like 6 weeks... hahahahahahaha fml..... oh and that's excluding another project which had a 6 weeks of work in the pipeline to get to somehow.... I'm not seeing this one happening, and probably conflicting projects needed on top of that down the track... but we'll leave those out for now!
Whoot is fucking home time!!!
🤷♂️I'm starting to think I'm like a team of 5-10 devs right now, maybe I should start asking for 5-10x more 😏
When you set an alias for vi and completely forget about it
# alias vi=nano
God damn, I was so confused for a minute 🤦♂️18
Not sure of devRant is broken, or there's really been no rants for an hour 🤔
So what's everyone up to?13
Promotions? What are those.
Every title I have gained has been out of necessity of needing someone to work on stack "X".
It usually goes something like:
Dev: I quit
Management: oh shit, we need another dev 🤔oh @C0D4 can do it until we find a replacement.
@C0D4: fuck, I don't know anything about this stack.
Management: we didn't find a replacement, this thing is yours now, here's a pay bump for your efforts.
@C0D4: I swear they'll regret all these projects being managed by a single dev 1 day.11
Wait a minute... something doesn't feel right around here, There's a certain someone missing from my devRant life again.
Enjoy your social leave.17
Oh my damn god,
I just found the remote-server plugin for vsCode and holy fuck balls, it's the one thing I've wanted from vsCode since ever.
When you dev in VMs and are forever working with remote code using SFTP and git on a remote servers, it's a pain in the ass.
But this, god damn this solves all of that, and with connection specific plugins, I think I just came.7
When you create your CV in HTML/CSS print as PDF and attach that to the job application, because word is annoying you with its lack of layout abilities.
I just wanted this bit of text over there --->
but no, I have to go make a text box, position that thing in an "absolute" way and have it still be wrong when exporting as PDF.
Really how hard is it to let me build a nice layout 😒10
Have a palindrome day @Stuxnet
I ran out of rants to ++, apparently I've already done that before 😂7
Sweet, chilling by the beach on vacation, for the first real time in years. 👌🎉😇

why in 2019, are browsers so fucking inconsistant.
im not even doing anything stupidly complicated.
simple UL List conataining links and background colors on the LI's....
and yet, every single browser is different, or in IE's case completly lost the plot.22
i hate my life sometimes.
as much as i can write frontend all day long and in my sleep, it never seems to amaze me how quick you can get into a deep nesting of elements in HTML.14
why.... why on this freaking earth would you go an enable Hypervision on me?
seriously #Windows, you are starting to drive me over the edge.
theres nothing like powering up a centos server - yea not even a DE, (that had no issues yesterday) and getting "VT-x is not available".
the last thing im going to think to look at is you enabling your bullshit despite it was already disabled,
since i finally have a laptop i can actually get away with doing mobile development... what would you guys, gals tell someone new to the whole Android dev world to use?
Java or Kotlin?
dont worry about my background, i usually just deep dive into anything new, but want to see what the general devRantsis is on the topic.
ive made it this far so... :D18
So for everyone that wanted the github repo for the ++ Battle i had with Haxk20.
@Everyone, I would like to congratulate @Haxk20 on being the victor of our little upvote fight.
It was a hard battle, and although I was ahead briefly, I would like to name @Haxk20 the victor!
As of post:
That's an impressive: 6,116 up votes in total from everyone involved.
As I have noticed requests for the repo, i would like to state It will be deleted, but I will re-release it as an empty template in the event others want to use it later - as per our original agreement.28
What in the unholy fuck is going on with the world!!
I get how our personal lives and data are bloody good at being used against us and tracking our behaviours but fuck Facebook won't let "good enough" alone and are coming back out with a new way to pay for our most sensitive data. Everything on your phone!
What more could they possibly want from knowing what,where,who,why,when, and probably even how we are shitting in a back ally besides controlling the masses
- no I'm not a privacy nut, just a concerned citizen -
What the flying git did I just do.
So here I am, finishing my billionth.. ok maybe not that many, feels like it some days.. task so I do the following:
git add /path/to/file.ext
git commit -m "yay done for the day" /path/to/file.ext
- yes I specify the files in a commit, I've had bad days in the past, plus I can work on multiple files at a time -
Then all of a sudden 20 other files are now staged for commit 🧐🤪🤭😱🤯
Guess I'll be sorting this mess out before doing a push tomorrow morning.1
Fuck my life sometimes.
I'd just finished my work for an ongoing project, it's been over 6 months only to be dragged out to be told another system needs an immediate change which at best will take 3-4 weeks.
Like seriously just let my mind come off down from the completion of previous project before dropping a new barrel of insanity on my desk 😬
I like being busy, don't get me wrong. but damn not even a day of recovery 😓1
SSD size 128GB
Windows 10: let's go and use 40 fucking GB for windows.old.
Like WTF, use 1/3 of my ducking storage for "I don't trust updating myself so here's a massive restore point"
Fuck you windows.17
