Them: "Automated builds and deployments are a waste of time, they do strange things you didn't tell them to and they make mistakes"
Everyone else: \/11
Must be doing something right, Had a hardware near-failure last night (turned out to be my gpu wobbling - didn't die though thank christ) and went into full panic mode "FORCE PUSH ALL BRANCHES FUCK THE HISTORY SAVE THE CODE", 5 minutes later Jenkins pings me on discord, everything built and deployed successfully :D2
Can we change the end goal of active noise cancelling to "Cancels anything from the top40 charts"? That new shitter of a Kylie song has an irritating fucking OOWAOOWAOOOOO tone that repeats incessantly because OF COURSE IT FUCKING DOES, Modern chart music has to appeal to the lowest common denominator of knuckle dragging mouth breathing fuck tard or it doesn't sell.
Even worse, aforementioned banshee squeal is at a pitch that juuuuust escapes the noise cancelling on these AKG N60s, so every fucking 30 seconds it makes my blood pressure spike to dangerously unhealthy levels when the red mist floods in.
Google! Get on this shit! You can already identify what's playing around me on the pixel 2 make a set of headphones that cancel that with extreme prejudice and I'll buy 10 of the fuckers.
I'm off to try prevent a rage induced stroke now in a sound proof room.
"I run arch Linux because it's so much better than conventional mainstream stuff, you get a sense of freedom and pride when it boots successfully for the first time"
That's fucking wonderful but I asked where you wanna go for lunch.7
Go do the dishes and remember how much I fucking loathed it when I worked in food, makes you want to write code so you don't have to go back to it.3
(friend in a terminal) "Oh fuck I didn't mean to do that!"
Well here's a neat fucking idea how about DON'T ENTER A COMMAND YOU DON'T INTEND TO RUN YOU MOUTH BREATHING WINDOW LICKER
Ever heard of trigger discipline? The idea of don't point a gun at something you don't intend to kill?!
IF YOU DON'T WANT THE DIRECTORY TO GO BYE BYE DON'T POINT A FUCKING RM -RF AT IT AND PRESS ENTER!
Jesus roller blading christ,
Anybody would think this is some new wave genius advice18
With a pad of paper and a pen, Fuck Evernote, Fuck Google Keep, Fuck your apps, Physically writing it down helps commit whatever it is to memory AND it makes managers happier when they see a pad of paper stuffed to the brim with scrawls, doodles, charts, notes and diagrams.
When in doubt grab a pen - your brain only has so much storage available at any given point.10
2 new favourite acronyms for CLI work;
RIBEYE - Read it before execution ya' 'eejit
RIBBED - Read it before breaking everyone's domains3
The huge icons for everything else aren't exactly great but dammit Facebook there's a UI guide for a reason3
Oh God I'm actually considering purchasing the jetbrains toolbox (as in the full pack), This is gonna be an expensive impulse buy at some point.
And yes I know students get it for free, I'm not a student. Some of us are trying to get OUT of debt not into it3
Mobile networks really boil my piss sometimes, Past my minimum period now and can upgrade, Found an offer on a pixel 2 matching my current plan for cheaper than I pay now, but its only for new customers.
What's REALLY retarded is they're not willing to let me upgrade to that deal, so I'd have to get my PAC code so I can keep my number, leave the network, sign up on that deal as a new customer and give them back the PAC code they just gave me, the fuck?!
Or I could go find a less pants on head retarded network, think I might do that actually.2
Protip - when a user unsubscribes from your mailing list that they never signed up to, DON'T SEND THEM ANOTHER FUCKING EMAIL CONFIRMING THE ACTION - DO IT ON THE UNSUBSCRIBE PAGE.
This is the FOURTH (4th) time I've unsubscribed from this bastard list, made a bunch of formal complaints about it and yet I keep getting their emails.
Probably shouldn't have bothered hiding the names, Flooding their inboxes would have taught them a nice lesson about unsolicited emails.18
The whole "walls are closing in" feeling when you're working on something, and someone pops up wanting this thing and it's urgent, and another person pops up wanting another thing and it's even more urgent.
Even though you put it on the back burner it does still feel like it's notched the pressure up a bit
Show stopper issue raised,
10 minutes to home time,
Critical service goes down,

"Your public key is a lot like a Jayden Smith tweet, it turns content into confusing, meaningless garbage before sending it out to the internet"
Why does every single app on my device feel the need to have a persistent icon in the notification tray? :/16
- "There's a bug causing it to crash IE6"
> "Any specific steps to reproduce?"
- "Ask it to load a website"
> "Our website?"
- "Any website"
Well played sir, well played4
Started a gradle build for the first time (never done it before) nearly 30 minutes ago, I'll never make fun of a java developer again, you guys have it ROUGH
If you're like me and you suck at picking out colour pallets check out https://colorbook.me, it aggregates colour pallets from the top few most popular designs on dribbble (yes that's 3 b's because designers).
My inner limey is in pain right now, I was forced to spell colour incorrectly more than never.4
- Get the first working version of llamaTORIALS live before expanding on it any more (trying to do the 1 man agile thing) & record some new content
- Get some form of secondary revenue stream on the go
- Attend at least 1 insomnia BYOC event
- Paint the apartment
- Get a picture with a Llama. Yes. I like Llamas.
The sheer irony of someone editing my SO question to "Fix bad grammar" and introducing even more bad grammar is hilarious.
You were there in SECONDS sir, props for that, Now unless you know your way around the Angular 4 view child system would you kindly fuck off? 🙃
(if you do know your way around aforementioned view child system and fancy a quick rep bump come save my sanity https://stackoverflow.com/questions...)
Edit - holy shit question has been up for 15 mins and its not at minus ten thousand, Tis the season!3
On one hand, emoji are an example of the miracle of encoding, and I should really appreciate them more from a technical perspective.
On the other, anyone that sends 14 "100" symbols and an OK hand sign should be legally prohibited from breeding.5
Designing stuff/general sketching/mockups, it started at first as a way to get a client to sign off on something instead of throwing it to the wind and letting scope creep ruin the project but holy shit, the amount of times I've gone back to my design tool (figma.com for anyone interested) and done a diagram or doodled a chart/flow for what I'm trying to accomplish is madness.
If you struggle to put things into words, make something visual for it, I get bitched at constantly for not putting things into words properly (bearing in mind the question is usually something like "what does getArticleService do?" "... It gets the article service") so I just throw a chart or a diagram their way instead, seems to keep people happy
Only 1 thing FF Quantum is missing, the rendered network preview :( Sure it sends back the html which I can drop onto an about:blank but it's an extra step I'd really rather not have to do
