Spend the past few days 3D printing those mask holders on my 3D printer, currently sitting at about 72 pieces in total to give away to friends and family around here :)6
me: *spends most of the evening coding his new shitty website*
me: *forgets to go to bed*
Da': "I hope you're not becoming game addicted"
My parents weren't very supportive about it at first because they somehow kept (and still are) linking it to game addictions...
But atleast now they accept that I became a dev because I always felt so empty when I was forced to come out from behind my PC and socialize like a "normal" person and talk about "normal" things.2
tmw you reach page 20 on Google just to find out how to make a fucking tar without this stupid "./" appended to the front of every file (and without that retarded empty dir that's literally just called ".")
Send back my PC for RMA two weeks ago (likely dead CPU, but I just didn't know anymore)...
They send me a mail confirming that they have received it and a mail that they would start on it (along with some terms)...
Two weeks of waiting, no news at all...
Mailed back: "Oh sorry, we forgot to add the line asking whether you agreed with our terms..."
Two weeks of not being able to properly sit at my desk, play games, work on code reasonably (with my 3 screens) and edit videos I still need to finish because they forgot a stupid line in their mail --'2
Trying Laravel for a few hours...
God I hate it... everything is in dumb places, need to do 3000 things to get something to work that'd take me 5 things in CakePHP... and my folder structure is already cluttered af D:
How do people like this turd D:15
tmw you need to find a bug in a function that is over 200 lines without any real documentation to speak off...3
Working on a (mostly) off-grid LAN.
Basically just a real-life meetup in or around Arnhem (eg. somewhere in a park) where we have some banter and some offline IT (or non-IT, whatever people attending want) fun.
Of course, taking the covid-19 shit in mind.
wrote an entire custom DNS server (using DoH only atm) for it, added a Matrix server (along with Element so people have a start) and a wiki for it :)
Still need to add a Gitea server (or similar, any suggestions?) to it tho.
Gonna see to have some trial-runs by myself (or maybe with 1 or 2 people) soon.
Soooo exited o see two months worth of planning and development start coming together :313
A friend of mine wrote a script that blinks the IP (in binary) of his raspberry pi.
I mean, I'm both disappointed and intrigued.11
Me: *works on some documentation*
Guy: "Why does it randomly say CUT DOWN LIKE LAMBS AT SLAUGHTER?"
Me: "Buggers I've been typesinging again D:"
Recruiter: "Do you have at least 5 years of experience with Angular?"
Me: "No, barely half a year"
Recruiter: "Then why did you get in touch with me?"
Me: "You were the one calling me [you moron]"4
So... the guy from my last rant completely screwed up a site he'd been working on for our company (blaming the web hosters for their "shitty config" while it was just an error in his .htaccess).
He then proceeded to do it all from scratch (instead of using already existing stuff like he did before).
He asked me to help him out.
I put as conditions that we where going to do it "my" way, with the tools I am pushing at work (Docker, Git, CakePHP and Sass).
He rejected it (as always) saying: "I don't care if the site looks good or works good, I just want something out of the door ASAP".
So I declined because I just can't work with that mentality.
He asked an intern (of which he actually has no saying but w/e) whom barely understands the basics of HTML and CSS to help him out.
Intern agreed and they started working on it.
Two weeks in and the guy takes a nice two week holiday, leaving the intern all by himself :)
something something "I want it out of the door asap"...
Tmw your angular app just stops working because of a mandatory circular dependency you simply cannot get around.
"Colleague" (he's there for day-time spending, he doesn't actually have a job) of mine keeps telling me I should F off with pushing for Docker, Git and CakePHP because they add an additional amount of learning for interns that they might not need to learn for school.
He wants us to keep working with the following:
- Google Drive for codebase sharing
- FileZilla (or atleast an FTP) for deployment
- "from scatch" PHP code where business logic and front-end code are all slapped into one big file and where functions are also slapped into one big file. also, opening and closing the database connection for each query made
Guy basically wants us to deliver a crappy products that we might not be able to maintain and are prone to a wide-variety of issues.
Yes, let's limit our company to *only* the things that interns need to learn for school, what could *possibly* go wrong :^)11
At work, we have a lot of daytime spenders (they just hang around so they do not sit at home all day).
I'm the only one in the entire company with somewhat decent programming experience (and I have to admit that I'm still pretty bad at it).
A few (4) of them have been assigned to one of the biggest projects (potentially even bigger than the one I work on daily) the company has ever had.
here is the fun part:
- 2 of them only just started coding and have no clue what they are doing at all (they heavily struggle with HTML).
- 1 of them overengineers everything (in a bad way) because she doesn't know how to do it somewhat properly.
- 1 of them doesn't even code (only sitting there giving ideas n stuff... basically the "client").
As a bonus point:
- None of them knows how to database
- None of them knows how to back-end
- None of them knows how to design
This is going to be fun, especially since I'm going to refuse to have my hands in there even the slighest outside of recommending stuff (like using a framework, certain libraries etc.) :^)2
me: *opens dev env using Docker*
me: *makes changes*
project: *permission error*
me: *fixes permissions*
Git: *Can't find a compatible repo*
Me: *finds bug*
Me: *starts working on a fix*
*4 hours later*
Me: "It's a total whack job but at least the bug is gone"4
1. Give me more knowledge
2. Give me some nice colleagues that have a clue on what tbey are doing
3. STOP MAKING MY CLIENTS SUCH BIG MORONS
Me: "<student> don't forget to go fap n nap in time" (he tends to game until way too late falling asleep during the day)
He: "I'm ready to learn hacking, I have aircrack-ng and A LOT MORE lol"
He: "machanger, anonsurf etc."
He: "wanna see?"
me: "not rly, cus you ain't gonna be using any of them for a looong time"1
Had to fill in the internship report for one of my interns...
He didn't look too happy after I handed it to him :^)
For those wondering: All he did was gaming and instead of showing initiative, he just went back to gaming when something didn't work.12
When somebody started bragging about his superior coding skill then I said that talk is cheap and that I wanted to see code (for some reason, this pissed her off) and then she started to DDoS me :^)
spoiler alert: she got a huge fine for it AND got fired from her job (whose servers she used to perform the DDoS)11
I just send an entire report out to one of our customers this afternoon...
Only to realise now that I accidentally used Comic Sans...4
"Got a new soundcard yay, lemme Install it!"
*5 mins later*
"why won't it give me sound ffs, the input works just fine"
*5 mins later*
"Great, sound output works"
*5 mins later*
"yay, input now works"
*puts on some music*
"ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME WHINEDOWS!?"5
Came home, opened Instagram and I feel this urge to make a rant about these fcking instagram thots that "code".
I'm not against women that code or anything (in fact, if they got the skill, then I think that is awesome), but I am against those special fcking snowflakes that try to get special attention just because they are a female person that is writing HTML and CSS >.>21
Can you please stop with using new Framework(); everywhere?
A PHP dev11
