Can't for the life of me get that iso bootable on that usb stick in linux. Etcher is crap. dd makes the stick unmountable for some reason.
Rufus on windows was so freaking reliable...12
Well I was there the first day but then I got incredibly sick and spent two weeks in bed. They were quite understanding though.
TLDR; windows sucks donkey balls
Sometime ago I started to get battery issues on my laptop using windows. Even with 100% charge it would soon display 0% when unplugged.
A few months back I switched to linux on my laptop and on my desk station. And to my surprise, battery issues dissapeared while using linux (manjaro i3). Anybody had that same problem?
Anyway I dual boot win 10 and linux just in case I'd need windows, and this week I noticed my root parition didn't have any space left.
For the next few hours I'm in a car so I thought hey great time to reinstall linux with a bigger root partition. I already had reinstalled windows, and with all the bloat removed, I could shrink my windows partition to make more space for linux.
Now all I need to do is prepare a usb stick with the manjaro iso. I could do that in linux, but since reinstalling windows killed my grub bootloader I couldn't boot up manjaro.
Right, so in windows I go and want to create this bootable EFI usb stick from the manjaro iso. Now the battery issue kicks in again, stating 0%. But with luck, the usb creation finished without my machine dying. Now I just need to restart my laptop and boot from the usb and .... Crap. my Laptop doesn't boot up anymore
Now i need to wait for a plug to be able to power it up again. Once I boot from the usb I'm sure I could use the laptop some more hours until the battery is actually dead. Fuck windows5
BLOODY FIREFOX DEVELOPER TOOLS
I was troubleshooting an app (inside container) hitting an endpoint. For debugging purposes I tried hitting the endpoint from my machine, but always got a 404.
So in the firefox developer tools under the network section you see all of the requests happening. Every request, application/json or url-encoded, lists its parameters inside the tab 'parameters' tab. I thought that means those parameters were i side the request body.
Turns out I should have sent the parameters as url encoded instead of POSTing JSON as the request body. This took me way too long.
Why not display the request url like http://url?key=value ... Firefox? Eh?7
I want to know how a certain type of software is called.
I once saw a talk where someone tracked his personal life for a year or so. This means photos are tomestamped and have a geolocation. Emails and phone calls are timestamped as well ...
On a timeline software he could then see exactly where he was and what he did on a specific date like 2 years ago...
There's a name for software that tracks all kind of data about your personal life. I think it starts with m.14
Gonna go to uni in a few months. So I applied to 2 companies for a side job. (10hrs/week - some kind of scholarship)
Of all the applicants I seemed to be the only one with enough technical knowledge to be considered. :)
They rejected me still, because I don't have enough time to have a proper onboarding process. They offered that I could start off in the holidays in the second year of uni.
Had a test with logic and a little bit of maths. Nearly completed that and then had a technical talk with their team lead. He said that I sound like I know my stuff. They are gonna contact me next week...
I think I aced the interviews, and being complimented on my knowledge feels validating.
Let's see where this is going...4
Does your company allow you to bring your own devices?
If so, dou have a choice on which programs/operating system gets installed?
If not, for which security reasons?4
Does anybody know how show/hide apps in i3 without using the scratchpad?
I have a number of apps running in the background inside the scratchpad that I can show via different keybindigs. But whenever I move something to the scratchpad and want to show it later, I have to cycle through all my other scratchpad windows first.
I couldn't find anything on multiple scratchpads or hiding/showing something without the scratchpad in the internet. Another idea would be to use a workspace for hiding/showing apps but I don't want to list that workspace on i3-bar7
How do you deal with information overflow? Like having to switch contexts quite often, or trying to learn a thousand things. Or remembering multiple things?7
Now the problem arises on how to remote control a linux machine with the i3 window manager. (With gui)
Teamviewer sends the windows key as the alt key and now no shortcuts work ...2
Pro Tip: Add a technology that you want to learn to your resume and send it in order to stop procrastinating learning it
gotta love them comments:
#TODO: move this,
#TODO: fix this,
#TODO: DON'T DO THIS,
#TODO: CHANGE THIS
I shit you not8
Played around with the window manager i3-gaps after seeing Luke Smith on Youtube. Seems really productive but I'm so used to minimizing windows.
What is the usual way in i3 to deal with Windows you keep open in the Background? Do you just move them to a different workspace?4
So a friend just told me one of his websites just got hacked and replaced with viagra advertisement.
He basically avoided joomla updates in order not to break something.
On the weekend I'm going to show him how to quickly spin up a docker environment for testing updates.
Let's asume I wan't to use software X. I notice software X is open source.
How do I validate that said software doesn't do shady stuff?
Is there some kind of platform which lists the audits of each software or alerts the internet if shady stuff happens?
I know about alternativeTo.net, where you can find software alternatives with licencing filters. (Which is great btw) but I'm missing proper validation of open source software...7
So here are my goals for 2019 in no particular order:
-contribute to open source
-switching from intellij to vscode
-finish side projects
-live a healthier lifestyle (less meat, quality food)
-do some hacking challenges
-learn proper linux system administration5
How seriously do you take TDD, CI/CD, automated testing, clean commits, good architecture, Agile, low coupling/high cohesion, etc ... ?
How much time do you invest in those things if you have a deadline up ahead?
Have you seen these things being valued or disregarded at the previous companies you worked for?17
If you want to resize and move windows without any hassle (with pressed ALT key) in windows? Just like in linux? Then check out AltDrag.
Wish someone had told me this sooner 😅
Docker is awesome for minimizing environment problems.
Current side project needed a database, a web server with php and a transpiler server running. Before, other people developed using XAMPP on windows. I dockerized the project and have now just one build script setting up everything the app needs, regardless of the underlying operating system.1
What do you think of Web Standards? (#nomigrations) Seeing that everything becomes more standardized motivates me to learn more web development.6
Just read Uncle Bobs book series:
Working with Legacy Code,
Read it in this exact order and each book was better than the one before.
What did you think of them and what other books do you recommend reading?
(Coding books of course)2
