Just got a new monitor (HKC NB34C) and connected it to my PC (which didn't have a monitor at the time)
The first thing I see is a green screen of death because of a power outage during a Windows insiders update.11
Ive just bought a domain name for my nephew of now 36 hours old. Ive a really common lastname and it took me 8 years to get a domainname with my name in it.
By the time he is ten (or how old they will be when they get their first email address) he will have his own personalized email and when they learn the basics of programming he can use his own domain for his site.9
Hacktoberfest has started today.
If you have an open source project label your issues with "devRant" or link your project here. This way people new to open source projects can help in a project by people they know.
At my current project we use SVN, but today I noticed a colleague of mine uses another version of version control as well.
Every singletime Ive to remove 40 lines of comments before Im able to follow the code and refactor it.3
In the last three days our team has had 4 people who were the final decider on priority for a single project.
Im staying here until my contract has ended but then I will tell my company they can find a new project for me...1
My current boss. He is never in the office and all he does is telling in which direction he wants the company to go. The backoffice works scrum and they are for any person in the company the people to deal with.
They care for personal growth and also tell you if you can get more money from them for example travel expenses.
The techlead is a female developer. If you are stuck around the place she lives in she lets you stay over or bring you home even though thats a two hours drive.8
Sorry fellow dev from another company, we really appreciated your help even though it was your free day. There is little chance you are also on devRant, but if you are we cant thank you enough debugging the dll provided by you and even supplying us with a dev version in which you made some changes for us to perform some extra tests. The changes looks promising as far as we have seen for now.
This might save our asses.
I was so fucking annoyed by all of those "tx eu" reposts that Ive just reported all rants of the last day that included a little bit of politics. One rant about a subject is fine, but. Dont have to see 20 rants on the same subject, if all you have to add is a word or 5 or less make it a comment on the rant above or underneath yours which has the exact fucking subject.
And while reporting I found out its possible to report your own rants, so I did, even though it was on a completely different subject I cant report people for talking politics and not include myself.
@xzvf: Since you didnt post a rule reminder about it like you did last time and even upvoted some of the political rants I thought it was wise to tag you in here as well22
Ive been looking for a contact manager for Android with a certain feature, but can't find anything for it.
Ive got quite lot contacts on my phone and some of them are from people online (devRant and other communities) as well as family, friends, old classmates etc.
Sometimes I forget who is who and thus Ive to add people as: "Jane (devRant)", "Jane Doe (Niece)", "Jane (Classmate school A)", "Jane (Classmate school B)"
Now I am looking for an app that allows for adding tags to a contact (preferably multiple) to avoid polluting names with something behind the name.
I dont need any cloud saves for it, although I would like it to be able to export/import it to csv, xml or json.
Does anybody know an app that fits my needs?5
13, my boss told me multiple times to leave, but I had to (for myself) fix someones fuck up first otherwise interns had nothing useful to do in the morning.
Got the next morning a few hours off to make up for that time.2
Im sitting here in a train and a guy two seats in front of me is carefully examining a ReSharper cheatsheet with shortcuts etc...
Do one of you ever print a cheatsheet with as goal to learn it from the top of your head while you are not behind a PC?13
Im way to fucking dense... Today a girl tried to show me she wanted to get to know me.
I was at McDonalds to get a coffee at McCafe. Since Im a regular there I know one of the guys enough to make jokes with him. So I was talking to him while he was making my coffee. Just before he finished it a girl interrupted him with the question if she could finish it. All she had to do was draw something with caramel on top of the cream.
I thought it was kinda rude because I was talking with her colleague. She gave me the cup and I walked out after thanking her, only to realize what she had drawn after I sat on my bicycle.
She had drawn a big heart with a question mark in it. I didnt really pay attention to the girl because I was annoyed she broke of the conversation and just took my coffee and walked out.
Now Im trying to remember what she looks like so I can talk to her tomorrow, but I dont even remember her hair color..24
Ive got three rooms I might work in, currently my desktop is in my VR dev room where the lights are broken.14
My company just made a nice design on the first door you see after entering the building.
Im so happy they started counting dev rooms from 037
Today I asked a question on RPG stackexchange, I made some typos, didnt format it nicely, added a wrong tag.
Within a minute I had 10 upvotes and an answer, people formatted my question and people improving the answer.
I was so surprised that people actually where nice. StackOverflow is one of the few stackexchanges that really sucks...
Why are devs such jerks?2
So Ive to make new screens in xaml in combination with C# (WPF)
So I had something like this in the codebehind
titleBox.Text = Properties.Resources.someKey
The resources looks like
<value>some text</value> <!-- this is some comment --> <!-- and another one -->
The title got as value "and another one", when I removed it it became "this is some comment" removing that resulted in the value "some text"2
I was looking for an single line ascii hug to let a Paizo (publisher of Pathfinder) employee know that he is going above and beyond with the communication because of delayed orders (delayed by Amazon).
Then I found the site on the screenshot. Guess they focused so much on the single line ascii art that they forgot to check the header :D4
The wordpress site I told my friend her friends I would take a look at made me feel a bit like a real hacker.
Without knowing them I guessed their username and password for the admin panel in 15 tries. Today they send me the password and username via email.
I just told them I already had access and that they should change the password.
TL;DR first off you are lazy, it isnt such a long text, but the real tldr is "Me Hackerboy"
Today a friend asked if I could fix her friends website, it is made in wordpress.
My reaction "hmm ewh wordpress, but I can take a look"
Then it hit me, my friend is a webdev and doesnt want to do wordpress herself.
I might get contacted about it soon and thus more rants may follow.7
Today I was being social, apparently not a success.
In the train on the way to work I had a talk with a cute girl. Ten minutes in the conversation she started putting on makeup, to which I replied that she looked great without makeup as well.
Then she was offended and put on music...
Apparently you cant give compliments54
Sometimes I wished there was no internet, computers etcetera and that the world would go back to the basics. When people from a village knew each other and married a girl from your village and lived in a wooden hut in the mud.
This all can be so much better than how life is at the moment. People ignoring eachother, fighting wars by killing thousands without actually fighting.
And yes I know some of us wouldnt survive it, Im not sure I would with my chronic kneepain. I cannot hunt because of it. I could be a builder or farmer maybe?29
Ive got this colleague who knows so much about cloud services, networking etcetera, but 90% of the code he writes I have to rewrite in a way.
So many typos that classnames become unreadable and not understandable.
Small pieces of code that breaks so many other pieces of code.
And code which isnnt needed because it doesnt do shite. "o = (o==null?null: o)" (this is the exact thing he wrote (spacing included))
Sometimes it takes me 6 hours to find the source of an issue because he changed something. Everything I change I confront him about because they are things that can be avoided by rereading the code written.
Fucking doesnt wanna learn....4
I contacted the creators of Nova Launcher because I want the full version. They have both an google play upgrade as an input code upgrade.
Since I dont have any google service anywhere I contacted them to ask how to get such a code because I dont have any google service. This was their reply:
"You would need to purchase the app via the Google Play Store, then once you have, email us a copy of the receipt and the email you used to purchase the app with, then we can give you a Direct License to use since you don't have Google Play Services."
How do I buy it if I dont have any fucking google service?18
Another rant about the downvoting....
I see more and more lies/incorrect things stated as fact. I currently downvote them as offensive/spam, but is this the right way to downvote those comments or should I label it as something else?3
Being an perfectionist.
Refactors on refactors on refactors, thats why I like a manager who keeps me from just that.2
Just when I want to get inspirations for my personal site by looking at other websites by devranters the famous website of @alice is down :(
Any other websites I should check out as example?9
