Random advice: don't get an AI degree. It's as useless as a liberal arts degree considering how most countries are still using stupid systems.25
Anyone else fucking pissed off by all the shit saying "Learn to Code in 21 Days".
You don't see anyone trying to become a doctor in 21 days so why the fuck do people think our work is so easy that any fucking asshole can do it in 21 days.
Fuck this whole fucking stupid world...23
We got an assignment to build our own website (with HTML, CSS and JS) a few months ago. Now guess who's been procrastinating for around 3 months and has to do it in one day now.
Does anyone have tips on how to avoid procrastination?7
Update on my previous rant...
It's currently 9:00 AM and I'm halfway done with the homepage (two more pages to go). I'm too lazy so I'm using a framework to get shit done faster.
I'll post more updates throughout the day
It is now 7:50 PM and I'm finally done. I did procrastinate a bunch throughout the day but it worked out in the end!
But seriously, I should stop being this lazy...2
There is no single laptop stand for my ROG. Why everyone makes holders for tiny woman notebooks and snowflake mac-s? I am the only one who needs a massive, strong, adjustable laptop holer?6
I couldn't figure out what the giant "C" was doing in my screen. It took me way to long to figure this out.10
Things I love of being a dev:
I downloaded a big list of .mp3's. The server gave them weird UUID's, but it kept their proper title on the metadata. I wanted to change the names to their proper title, and I could've done it by hand, but I decided to write a little script to do it. Well, I'm not a scripting geek, so I had to dive into how to get the metadata and format strings etc, the basics of PS. I'm pretty sure I wasted more time there than I would have just doing it by hand... but hey at least I learned something new! On my track to becoming a full-stack developer!
Anything to not do something so numbingly repetitive and uninspiring as that7
Haha. Yeah threaten to fork my repo and make it more popular than it already is because I won't add a clearly out of scope feature.
Is there a way to display list of all weeklies outside of the devRant app, ie in any web browser?
There has been quite a lot of interesting weekly topics, but going through them on the phone is a pain.14
I have an Android app suggestion:
A different alarm clock.
- wakes you up by increasing ring tone, from least to most, each step taking at least two seconds.
- you can give it a stream url (e.g. online radio or yt) and it uses that to wake you up.
- you give it an offline ringtone as well, in case the stream doesn't play.
- has repeated snooze. You hit the off button once and it goes to snooze. You hit it twice or trice and it is off. Otherwise, it rings again in 2-60 minutes. (User preference)
- is free. 😛
Shouldn't take long to make. I'd make it myself if I had the technical capabilities right now. Do link me if you make it or if you know of one already existing. (The existing ones I've found so far, I have issues with unnecessary permissions they ask mostly.)18
I'm definitely not a person who says or thinks of those things liberally, but.. I think I might have a ghost in my apartment :)
I have no other sane/rational way to explain all those noises...7
I made a thing.
A recent user threatened to "hack" me using "Tampermonkey"... and while that is silly, it did get me thinking about trying out some User Styles for the first time in a while.
So, I present to you rapscallions DarkTronRGB.
Three Dark Tron Style CSS User themes for devRant that work with Styler and Stylebot browser plug-ins.
Enjoy. Or don't. I don't care.
Unpopular Opinion: most devs doing it just for the money are pretty fucking shit at programming and problem solving.
I do it because I like to make screen go blinkyblink. Top reason to be one: you are not scared if printer goes blinkyblink because you know why it makes blinkyblink.10
WERE ALL PRINTERS DESIGNED BY INCOMPETENT MONKEYS WHO HAVEN'T EVER TOUCHED AN ACTUAL PIECE OF PAPER IN THEIR LIVES?!
WERE THEY PAID SPECIFICALLY TO MAKE SURE THEY WOULD NEVER WORK WHEN YOU NEED THEM TO?!?
IT REALLY SHOULDN'T BE SUCH A FUCKING PAIN TO DO A GODDAMN SIMPLE THING LIKE PRINT A BLACK AND WHITE JPEG!
I'M NOT ASKING FOR MUCH, JUST A FUCKING EVEN HALFWAY FUNCTIONAL MACHINE THAT DOES AS ADVERTISED AND DOESN'T REQUIRE SACRIFICING A GOAT TO CONNECT TO
FUCK ALL PRINTERS EVERYWHERE30
Just went through a breakup. 7 months pretty much wasted. Felt like whiplash when I realized everything was a lie.
The worst part is my motivation is zero now, and I have projects and deadlines and hopes and dreams that all just seem fake now.
Just like opening the fridge at 1am to find nothing, and then again at 1:05am, and then again at 1:10am, hoping for something to be different, I open vim, then :q, then run ls about 5 times to see if anything's magically changed, then browse HN for a few minutes, open vim again, close it, etc. Motivation is zero.5
The amount of elitism you see inside of the dev community is the reason why I consider changing careers.
No, It don't hurt my feelings. I just don't want to surround myself from sexually frustrated loosers that think that getting cool points on the internet over hating and shitting over other's likes and dislikes means something.
It sucks balls and I smell the areas to be of dried cum and Cheetos.
Fuck man, being born ugly, anti-charismatic and weird must suck big balls54
I'm so sick of being forced to use CSS frameworks at work. Every time I see one of those HTML elements with 87 terribly-named CSS classes, I want to scream and break something
What's wrong with Vanilla CSS? Why is it so unpopular to just stick with plain CSS, I feel like I'm infinitely more productive when I can just write out some short CSS than trying to wrangle the dumbass CSS framework to do what I want it to do. Even things like Vuetify make me lose my mind with the stupid shit you have to do to get it to behave how you want it
Also, Material Design is ugly as hell to me16
K pop is garbage and yet somehow their fans are a bigger cancer than that sad excuse of music.37
