Yesterday, my new (Irish) co-worker comes to my desk and asks me a question about an issue in his code.
His commenting all done in Irish.
Him: "If you want me I can translate the comments for you?"
Me: "Ní gá, is féidir liom é a léamh go foirfe." ("No need to, I can read it perfectly fine")
co-worker looking at me like: "wtf just happened?"
After a while, I spotted the issue (I noticed the expected output from one of the functions not being of the correct format - an integer instead of an array).
So I fixed it.
Next day (this morning) I came back at work, looked into my food drawer to see what I would eat for breakfast (yes, I have a drawer specifically for food, and yes, I eat breakfast at work), found a small box containing an Ulster Fry :D
Best breakfast at work in a long time :D6
me: "hey look, something new and awesome I could use in my projects!" (WebAssembly in this case)
also me: "I HAVE NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT I WOULD USE THIS FOR"3
*looks at awesome tech he could really use to boost his productivity*
*looks at wallet*
++ if this is you T_T3
Imagine the nooblet hell it would create if Python would throw actual errors all over the place if pep8 has been violated...
sidenote: I post this rant because I had to help my girlfriend and her project partner (for her study) because partner refuses to write readable code (no comments in the code at all as well) and both refuse to write in compliance with pep8 "because it's useless"5
So some student complained that the busses are to full in the morning (they are filled with students).
Student: "why don't they drive more busses?"
Me: "because that would raise prices of busses since more drivers and fuel is needed. It's simple economics"
Student: "Public transit already is way to expensive, they can easily drive more busses and trains for that"
Me: "public transit is already way to expensive.... Oh look! An iPhone, MacBook, AirPods, Apple Watch, Dr Martins and other overpriced shit you have with you now!"2
some recruiter posted a recruitment on a public page:
looking for java developer.
Must know: anglar 6, scala and react..2
Any other Screeps players here?
for the people running into a "Screeps is not defined":
Code how your harvesters should behave, how your soldiers should behave, how your builders should behave etc. etc.
So far, it is quite a fun game, tho my (Intel Nehalem based) laptop has issues handling it (thanks to a awfully slow GPU...) so it's difficult to play for me at the moment (I'm on holiday, my home PC is a LOT faster).
It costs about 15 euro on steam, and if you're into this stuff, it's well worth it.
Just make sure you finish the tutorial first... I didn't and I regretted it when I bought the game (it's a huge pain in the buttocks to get started if you don't understand the API and such).
Currently just playing on my own localhosted private server to discover how the game works and such, but will be setting up a public server later down the road to play with others.
Tho it would be nice if Screeps would allow for "team-based" gameplay as well so it'll be slightly harder for early players to bully the newer ones.2
I want to build an Android app...

On holiday with parents and gf...
Wifi here forces you to use their DNS (using Google's or Cloudflare or any other DNS is blocked)...
Can't use my OpenVPN either...
> tries to run `login` command on CLI tool I want to use.

because... you know... it's not like I am trying to do that...2
spends almost 5 weeks trying to get CI/CD to work with Kubernetes (including installing Kubernetes itself).
Decides that he might go see if Nomad is a better thing for him...
Man, if only I discover stuff sooner...3
Sitting in the train with dad when an old man comes walking in (already having struggles to stand).
lots of "younger" people (students n stuff) and nobody gives their seats...
I didn't notice cus I sat with my back towards the doors.
My dad (who is also somewhat old and has a artificial knee) gave his seat.
Not the younger people without handicaps, no, my dad with one...
So, he is old, has difficulties standing and walking and standing, but nobody gave his/her seat away to the man...
god this world is fucked up...3
Tried setting up a Cordova project using Docker (less dirt when I stop with the project or something)...
All cordova commands exit without error or anything...2
@dfox I keep getting an error when trying to post my wk112 rant :\
It does have about 4986 characters in total...
All I get is "There was an error creating the rant."9
Missed the fucking bus to work because they changed up the times here without prior notice...
So no more having the "nice" train (with comfy clean seats, wifi and airco) but the "crap" train (old dirty seats, no wifi and no airco) AND a quarter of an hour wait...
I rly need a drivers license...
This I met somebody on the train that is following the education for Quantum Physics.
After a bit of talk, I noticed he looked like he could be 24 and 50 at the same time...
Well that's some dedication10
Reinstalled my laptop from a hacked-together Ubuntu server install with i3wm and some other junk to a plain Ubuntu 18.04 install.
Man, I love this Gnome shell so much...
It's really nice when you have a small screen...
Helped somebody learning Arduino (he is new to programming in general)...
I saw this at the top of his file...
I admire his effort tho...14
Got postblocked on Facebook for saying a certain video (which shows useless "self-defense techniques") is the cause people are trash at hand to hand combat :D
30 days of not telling random people they are idiots, FML6
I am watching a video from Google I/O when they said "Ok Google", and my phone turned on (though saying "Your voice was not recognized")2
