Rantish story time!
Today I impressed myself. I was told in all seriousness by a PM "couldn't we do this API in HTML?" and kept a straight face. Even though he doubled down, following with "oh, do you think the language isn't powerful enough?".
Ok, who among you crazy people came up with this idea? https://userinyerface.com
That website is the UX equivalent of murder 1. It took skill, planning and a very special brand of crazy to create.10
I love mornings ; the dimmed light of the sun slowly rising, the stillness in the office, the smell of the freshly poured coffee and most of all, the excruciatingly loud motherfucker and his power drill.
@dfox man, do you realize the amount of desks that have cleaned *for the first time* because of this week topic? 😅
I'm puzzled, what kind of lobby put you up to this?9
To the person in charge of managing my lovely corporate computer, next time you deem timely to install god knows what software in the middle of the afternoon, discreetly burning 50% of my cpu, preventing me from working, don't.
Instead I would cordially encourage you to go fuck yourself with a cactus and ponder on your abyssal incompetence.
With restrained love,
Now this looks stupid already, but here is the kicker: by "partially hydrated cursor" i mean that once every page size an sql query is ran to get the next page content. This code is put in an event handler, executed once every time a file is uploaded in a dms where files get uploaded by the thousand.
To sum things up, this simple snippet achieves triple dipping:
* waste time on useless sql queries
* waste cpu on useless iterations
* waste disk space on useless logs
Icing on the cake, the author of this piece of shit was complaining about the overall slowness of the process.
Needless to say that when I stumbled on this, both internal *and* external screaming ensued...4
Damn, GitHub is on rampage lately. After dropping tls < 1.3 support, they are expected to drop IE support by July.
Praise GitHub 😍9
Please, oh please, tell me there's an exception for murdering people using their phone in speaker mode right in the middle of an open space.
Please ... I feel like it should count as public service and be rewarded ..
I'm trying to work here, it don't give the slightest flying fuck about the latest crap you dare to call code and how it fucked up your whole application.5
