AWS: change this service by doing this, this, this, this, oh and this, haha we didn't mention this - now do this, umm and this too!
Me: oooooookay - looks good!
AWS: yeah- nah bro, thats fucked!4
is it just me, or do some people just make life difficult for the fucking sake of making life difficult?
now, lets ignore the lack of sanitised data, lets also ignore the lack of prepared statements, and for the love of god... lets ignore some magic numbers, because I still don't know what they mean yet....
but why! why would you create an array, implode it, smash it into a database query on the fucking fly, instead of just adding the data into the query in the first place.... it's not like you were doing this right to begin with, but this... this is next level!30
Skrew all these "modern" css frameworks, I'm returning to the 90's bitches!!!
The balls some managers must have to think that this is going to be an acceptable price.
I also find it hilarious that a $2 adblocker can fuck this in the ass.17
For anyone interested.
Google is doing a 30 days of Flutter event where you can access curated content from the Flutter team and join live AMAs with Google’s Flutter Team.
When you spend your day building a dark theme on stylish instead of doing your day job 😏
Ah the life of an easy day.
I shall sip on my pina Calada before the shit hits the fan tomorrow... oh wait, that's a public holiday🍹🧘♂️🏖13
C0D4 kinda hangry!
Yes that's a word...... maybe.
Ok, so I'm starting to see memes, memes and more fucking shitty memes, don't we have Reddit for that?
I wonder.. if it's a terrible idea in this day and age to remove the ++ button from meme posts, it would immediately remove the incentive to farm ++ and not contribute other wise, and it's not necessarily penalising them for doing it, it's just not rewarding them...
I know... I'll go jump in my bunker and hide from the riot that will probably begin now.35
devRant needs a poll feature :D
im starting a new project, and currently deciding on the css framework to pick. kinda sick of injecting bootstrap into everything and reworking it, time for a new toy.
so... Whats your preferred CSS Framework?

Farewell flash - you will be missed in the nostalgic archives.
You know your software is over when Microsoft pull the plug - now awaiting the IE removal 🤷♂️
- survived 2020 and all its woes.
RIP those that didn't.
- delivered a major project this year that felt like it never wanted to end.
Scope creep.... nope, scope realignment kills the soul.
- hired a competent dev!!! 🥳 Not being a SoloDev is a weird feeling!
- pay rise during a pandemic, that was a nice touch.
- dealt with several useless contractors and ended up redoing most of the work myself.
- don't lie to me when you say you *can* do something, only to throw yourself into a complex rabbit hole you can't dig yourself out of.
- major project took 500% longer then originally scoped - it was only meant to be a tight 6 weeks, not an excruciating never ending list of changes and rebuilds 🤯
good thing I get paid regardless - but I don't think the burnout was worth the while.
- let's see what the world has on offer to try and burn me out of existence this time!
Day 3 of getting this god forsaken react app to launch!!
My fucking god you cock suckers make life difficult.
Npm install - they say
Npm start - that say
Npm - go swallow my god awful error log and fix all these dependencies
Npm - here's a dependency that didn't install but I need it
Npm - what do you mean your not using a fucking Mac with sass files!
C0D4 - I'm this.close() to fucking stabbing someone!12
There's nothing like the fresh smell of emails on Monday morning, soooooooo fucking many random emails, actually, 2,708 fucking emails, 99.9999999% are stupid useless logs or alerts that have no meaning to me, and yet, I have to setup outlook rules to filter out this shit.
Ah, another glorious Monday 😤3
iOS (14.2) users:
Can you open epic games in safari?
Wondering it this is some brutal block since the whole Apple/Epic war started or it's just my phone.
Question time for the automators out there. Has anyone stumbled upon n8n?
It looks surprisingly simple to get up and running for a no-code automation tool, just wondering if there's any communal reviews on them before I jump deep inside.9
The only thing we can do is make a joke about the other bots that are not always in their own mind or if it's just an issue for them and then the other one ☝️ and then you don't get them in your mail to the right place for a long list of all that people you know you are not so far out and it's a joke that is why you haven't even paid for it and it's a lot easier for them but it's just like 👍 is not just the way of things like 👍 is the one ☝️ you don't have it on it but you can't even get the word for that one ☝️ or something that's what it looks it up 🆙 is it a lot better then it's not the one ☝️ thing that you don't have it on it or so you know it looks bad it's a joke it's a bad joke and you can't find a way you don't have a lot to me but I don't know 🤷♂️ or you want me to be like 👍 but you do not have any more than me I don't know 🤷♂️ but that's what I'm talking you know that I'm going through the whole time I'm going through the wrong 😑 thing I've been to you to see if this one ☝️ or I just want you to do something like 👍13
You know you've been a dev for to long when a program fails to launch and you instinctively open the log files.4
Yay, now I know what that windows update was about... oh no, this isn't another "fuck windows, update broke shit again" post.
This is a "wtf, you dodgey shit bags" kind of post, "you" managed to install Skype, install this stupid ducking "meet now" service - which is fucking hidden (anyone have any pointers? Google's not doing its job yet), and now I have to uninstall office completely to remove Skype 🤦♂️
Why won't you fuckers let it go, didn't we ALL move to teams recently?5
Juniors are a fun bunch to work with.
Over confident, hero complex of that fresh graduate high, and then thrown in to the real world! Where there hopes and dreams are crushed in minutes when they see what monolithic applications really look like!!
But don't let that overwhelm you, your not going to be changing all of it any time soon, hell some of this code hasn't been touched in 5+ years and still works without fail.
Don't stress about the work load, you can only write 1 line of code at a time anyway, and hell, even seniors make mistakes.
The key about being able to manage this beast is simple, break it! Because the more you break it, the more you'll understand how a project is put together, for better or worse. Learn from the examples in front of you, and learn what not to do in the future 😎
But more importantly, plan your changes, whiteboard the high level logic of what it is you want to add, then whiteboard in the current codebase and determine where to slice this bitch up, then when it all looks well and good, take out your scalpel and slice and dice time.
Don't worry, your changes aren't going to production anytime soon, hell, you'll be lucky to get past the first pull request with this working 100% the first time, and that's a good thing, learn from tour short comings and improve your own knowledge for the next time!3
Fuck, fucking cock sucking stupid ass prick of a little black box, why, why the fuck do you not fucking boot any more, all you have to do is fucking boot but no, that's to much for you to fucking do!
Ah well, good thing it's only a Rpi!
It had a good life, now to wipe the card and start again! I1
When /admin is protected by nothing more then:
var admin = false;
window.location.href = "/home"
My favourite to ever stumble on and dred going through hundreds of files to actually fix😣6
So, here I am browsing steam for something new to play.
Thanks kwilliams for a solid 30 hours of gameplay 🤘
But anyway, I was just scrolling through and came across and old gem.
And it got me thinking, if anyone else used to play this old bad boi around here.
It's not High Def or modern, although it does 1920x1080, but damn it's a trip down nostalgic lane.2
Not a rant per se,
But is anyone else experiencing weird peripheral device dropouts on windows?
For example, if i turn off my BT headphones and reconnect later, no audio will play through them until I reboot.
Although this doesn't seem to be limited to Bluetooth but USB devices aswell.
I'm thinking some service has shit its self.4
We seem to have a problem, if I leave the 50k club, there'll be no one in the 50k club 😦
Come on you 40k clubbers, you need to pick up the slack!26
When you have been heavily using 1 language for 6 months, then start a project in another - where da fuq did all my memory muscle go!4
When your bored out of your brain... and start messing with iOS shortcuts.
