Do all the things like ++ or -- rants, post your own rants, comment on others' rants and build your customized dev avatarSign Up
Am I the only one who thinks the ++ spam is both annoying and makes the ++ of a comment or rant just worth nothing?
Every once in a while I get over 100 ++ by a single user, it is making a shithole from my notifs.
If Im the only one thinking this I will have to learn to get used to it but otherwise I think a x number of ++ to a certain user in a time limit should be implemented.9
So at the end of last month our complete team was fired because restructuring in the company. We have had this countdown running since the first day we got the news. Ive made this photo yesterday so only 3 days and a few hours to go and then a month of sitting on the bench at my work (Im a consultant and work on project basis for other companies)3
I just used a contact form of a local webshop. I couldnt enter my email address because it contains a +.
I contacted them to tell them about this issue and the response was it is because of security reasons. Since when is following specs a security breach? Unless their system is one leak I don't see how its possible.
Am I wrong or did they either lie or have a leak in their system?4
Opensourcing is great
getting other people involved is difficult
Doing a group project with volunteers is impossible.6
A platform where people can share their creations, collection of information sources about 3D printing and other CNC machines. (Alternative to Thingiverse)11
Am I blind of am I unable to post a collab? I rarely use the web interface because I can never find something. but when Im on the collab page I should be able to post a new collab right???7
I have a few questions for the people having a 3D printer and/or are interested in 3D printing.
1. Where do you retrieve your models from? Or do you make them yourself?
2. What is your thingiverse name (if you have it)
3. Personally I'm missing a single good information source where questions can be asked, models can be shared etc. Thingiverse doesn't have a mobile UI and is pretty limited in my opinion. I'm thinking of creating a "social media" platform where people can share their creations, collection of information sources about 3D printing. Would you like to help or is there a good alternative for Thingiverse that I have not found yet?29
My bike chain fell of my bike today. Which has never been a problem because I can lay it back on again, just have to get rid of the chainguard. Fortunately I always have a screwdriver with me.
Hmm there are 4 screws
one screw loose
second screw loose
Why doesnt this screw work? FFS its a torx...
Why in fuck sake do they make a single part of the bike with different screws?
Had to walk the 6KM to the train station and will buy torx on my way back...
Ffs stupid bike designers8
I came across an issue with Visual Studio 2017. I'm unable to collapse multiline comments, there is no - sign in front of it like with code blocks.
At home it is no issue and I can do this without problems.
Ive looked online and all I can find is people not being able to collapse comments in VS Code. And people who want to collapse everything but the comments, but the comments do get collapsed.
Is it a setting I cannot find?4
When you are fired from a project (restructuring and finance related) and before you have free time multiple companies are already soliciting for you....
Why people? I was planning on having a few days off....2
Find a job that allows personal growth on the boss time. This helps you do what you want while doing with being the slave of the customer in between.
In the end your company will profit from it.1
(Not dev, not rant, although it might become one later on)
So as some of you may know, I am colorblind. I always avoid working with colors because of it. Yesterday I decided to do something I've always wanted, painting. And no I don't mean painting on a canvas but miniatures and other 3D models.
I love catan, I love 3D printing and I thought let's print a catan set and paint it myself, without depending on family to ask for colors.
I've got this German paint tubes and used the wikipedia color descriptions to decide what to paint which color.
The following is the result, its a wheat tile (and in the background a wood tile).
Feel free to give tips and suggestions. If I picked a wrong color please tell me so I can update my tactics.
Finally took this step. Yay25
For the guys familiar with 3D printing.
Does your slicer also give you time estimates that are completely off? I'm printing something that would take 10 hours according my slicer. Started it at around 10 AM and its 1AM now and still printing. Halfway during the print I increased the printing speed to 150% because it was way to slow.
Is it just me or are the estimates completely off at each print and the longer the print takes the less useful the estimates are.
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.8
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
