Finally after planning for a couple of weeks, devRant's Mumbai meetup was successful.
(@vocuzi 😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏 sunna tune, SUCCESSFUL 😏😏😏)
@Teknas, @-Red and myself.
We attend a few music gigs at city's biggest art festival. however, due to extreme cold weather (19°C), we all were freezing and decided to leave early.
The best conversation went as below:
Backstory: @-Red is an IIT dude (for those who don't know IIT, it is a government college and the best one in India which is in Mumbai).
@Teknas: There are more cows than girls in IIT.
@Floydian: Can you confirm @-Red?
@-Red: Confirm what?
@Teknas: Better question would be, are there even any girls in IIT?
As nerdy as he can get, he is busy playing AOE on local server and has no interest in women.
We plan to meet again sometime soon. IF anybody is around, do join us.
Sorry, we were unable to click a selfie as our shivering hands wouldn't keep the camera stable. Will post it next time.75
What a shit fuck of day it was.
I had a terrible pain out of infection and my system is taking months to recover.
There's absolutely no work at office and I have to just wait to another month to be released so that I can join my new team.
I am bored out of my skull these days with absolutely nothing to do and just deal with office politics.
Friends are being dick to me because they think I betrayed them and switched roles.
Absolutely nobody to talk to when I want to share stuff and all my other personal tasks require time to complete which I spend slogging at work.
My stupid sister never listens to me, keeps blaming me, complains all day and makes my life worse in front of everyone. I am losing my temper with her.
God damn it. I am so fucking angry today.
And you know you day is fucked enough when you reach home, open your laptop and this shit happens.
Don't fucking tell me to switch to Linux. I WILL NEVER DO THAT BECAUSE LINUX IS UGLY AND COMPLEX.
Now just stop reading and fuck off, because I am pissed enough to break bones.21
Found this on Product Hunt.
Poor guys did deliver the product, but were unable to protect their website from hackers.1
Long ago (around a year and half), I discovered Medium and even created an account.
Found it too complex and delete the account in an instant.
I used to often read Medium post after being redirected from various websites I use.
These days, I am on a learning spree and decided to create the account again. Well, they are minimal now (not just decluttered, but minimal).
I read an article, followed by another and then the third.
Then after a short break, I was back to my reading. I open the fourth article and bam! Medium asks me to upgrade to premium version for $5/Month. Just three fucking articles per month on free account.
As stupid as it can get.
Out of curiosity, I deleted the cookies and refreshed the page. Voilà!!!
It works. Now I have three more free articles for the same month.
Well, is this a known issue by them or just a poor way of handling how they track the article count?
I don't know but I am about to delete my account there again because the content is extremely mainstream and American mindset is pushed there a lot (no offense to my American friends but this is what I feel about most of the internet these days).35
The way people have responded to this simple message on my company's Slack's announcement channel is pissing me off.
Mind you, 95% of the emojis are animated crap.15
New trend in India.
This couple has an Android app as their wedding invitation.
It even got 100+ downloads and 15 reviews.
More in comments below.35
Want to post and rant more often but have been socialising a lot lately so I lack time to do so (yes, I got a life offline and surprisingly doing well. Please don't hate me or kick me out of the community, I belong here).
Anyway, here we go.. after a long time..
INDIANS ARE FUCKING DOGMATIC IGNORANT RETARDS.
I am surrounded by idiots at work. People just don't listen and slog their ass all the fucking time. They don't know shit and acclaim themselves to be geniuses.
They feel pride in working late hours and are very happy even if they don't get paid the overtime.
Such assholes ruin the culture and set a wrong expectations for everyone around.
My mistake is I trust people very easily and later regret about trusting people. I also jump to conclusions too soon and I need to stop doing it.
I think I have become egoistic, cocky and arrogant lately and need to retrospect more often. I need to improve on lots of things because my stupid behaviour is costing me a lot of good relationships.
But again, I have come to a realisation that people will be with you only till they need you. You will be left all alone when you need people.
Not everyone is as they appear. Deep down every single one is greedy and selfish with their motives. Very rarely you will find someone who is honest, open, reliable and trustworthy.
Emotionally we all are alone as fuck. The jerks are busy scoring chicks and ass lickers are busy impressing management with their licking skills.
The problem is people do not tell me what's wrong and just expect me to improve magically. How the fuck am I suppose to grow in such an environment?
Moreover, one of my friend is in London for a good duration and the other one is drowned in work. I am left all alone and get bored at work as my migration to Product Management is still under process.
I am trying to utilise this time by learning as much as I can but end up scrolling Reddit. I FUCKING NEED TO FOCUS ON LEARNING AND GET DISCIPLINED.
I also recruited one of my office colleagues to devRant. We haven't exchanged our usernames so let's see if we can find each other.
To be continued..23
Any RSS user here?
Does anyone know how can I create a RSS feed of any Facebook page without having a Facebook account?
What feed generator do you use for Facebook/Instagram?11
Anybody interested in building an Android client for Spotify?
The current one is good but I find it cluttered and believe that it can be simplified a lot and can be made minimal.
Let me know if you genuinely want to work on this.14
Just got this e-mail from 'Anonymous Hacker'.
Somebody please help me to send Bitcoins to him. I don't know how to use Google as well.
My reputation is at stake. Plz hlp.52
Most of you would be happy to know that I will soon be volunteering for a Not for Profit Organisation known as INTERNET FREEDOM FOUNDATION.
So basically we will be drafting a bill for 'PRIVACY AND DATA COLLECTION' and will be presenting to the Government of India to pass the bill.

I am in talks with the founder and we had a good half an hour call on how to take it forward and where I can contribute the best.
After my role switch to Product Manager, now 2019 brings me this amazing opportunity. This is only getting better 😊26
Local newspaper finally delivers information I have been waiting for since ages.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the peak of Indian Journalism. Only downhill from here.28
I FUCKING DID IT.
TODAY, I AM HAPPY AS FUCK.
You all know how much I used to rant about my shitty manager and the shitty QA job.
And with all the lay offs at work, I was worried more and more everyday.
I never liked coding and automation is killing QA jobs.
I always leaned towards business and tech.
I really worked hard and gained lot of product knowledge of the one I was working on.
Last month there was an opening in Product Management team.
I thought of trying luck. I had good contacts and through their reference got an interview scheduled.
This evening, I got the confirmation call that I am selected.
I am fucking out of that soul sucking QA job and now will be a Product Manager of one of Oracle's 10 million dollar kernel products.
My happiness today knows no bounds.
Not only I am out of that toxic manager but this career switch has countless perks waiting for me. The more I count the less they are.
I once dreamt of posting this story and today it is reality.
Feels good :)
Edit: Really sorry for being away and not interacting with you all as I was busy with this thing. I am here now with you all.89
Rants incoming soon... Buckle up your seat belts as I am in a shitty new year party with family who suck sweaty donkey balls.6
On 30th December 2017, exactly a year ago, I was bored and was browsing Play Store where I was suggested devRant.
I was introduced to a new world of interesting people who had similar life struggles and challenges.
I ranted here a lot. Soon became fourth top user and currently the second I guess with all the digital votes.
What's more important is, I made so many good friends whom I shared so much about myself which I would never do in real life with anyone.
I don't even know the names and location of most of you but have learnt a lot from you all. The emotional connection is beyond words.
I am thankful to you people.
Last one year has changed me a lot. My stupid manager and the ass licker have taught me a lot on how to live in a corporate world.
And do you guys remember my crush about whom I used to be stressed a lot because I was serious about, but could not talk due to my shyness?
Well, just last month our mutual friend told me that she got engaged and possibly will be marrying soon. Yes, I am devastated. My friend helped me move on and taught me some skills. Lots of life lessons learned.
My priorities and aim in life have changed. I am clear about my vision.
I also used to crib about my shitty job and with all the lay offs, I have applied internally to another project with a role switch. I hope it goes well and I get the transfer.
Some things are fucked up, some are good while some remain as they are.
I am back here and will be ranting about my life and connecting with you all crazy heads because sometimes, the virtual life is better than the real life.
I not sure whether life is fun or sad because of ups and downs. But one thing for sure that things happen at right time with right people at right place.
Best things are never planned or anticipated.
Sometimes when you look back, it's all different. You never wanted it to happen, but you deserved it maybe because you being prepared for something.
Sometimes you do want to undo past but somethings are better left as they are.
You become a person you never wanted to be but have to because situations and circumstances force you to be. You regret but have no option or control over it.
Life is unfair and worst part is, it is never unfair in your favour.
Above all, life goes on.. it goes on...21
Possibly my last post here.
Bored of this place as there is nothing new and content is degrading.
If you want, feel free to stay in touch with me at
Will delete the account soon.72
FUCK YOU TOO YouTube
Let me watch the current video till the end before you shove the suggestion right in my face.
Or atleast show them on one side without blocking the main content.
Not sure whether YouTube does this or the uploader, but either ways, Fuck them both.17
You know your life is hard when you type 'DUCK' and keyboard suggests you 'FUCK'.
Have been swearing a lot these days.11
Just saw our artwork being used by Indian media.
Sue them Tim 😂😂

My broken display is being replaced by a brand new one by Lenovo under warranty.
This place seriously needs some quality control.
Things have changed a lot in last few weeks and I am losing interest slowly.
If the graph keeps falling down, I might quit soon. Well, nobody cares but still.33
Was cleaning my laptop screen with eye glass cleaning liquid spray and when turned on, the entire fucking screen went white.
I AM FUCKING PISSED AS WILD BOAR.
FUCK YOU LENOVO.48
The company I used to like the most, has turned into a pile of steaming bullshit crap.
Just saw this Apple ad on YouTube and out of curiosity watched it to understand the hype.
Description says 108 seconds and video ends in 107 seconds. Idiots.
Well, let's ignore that, but the video is shit fast and made me dizzy.
Neither was I able to read 90% of words and text, nor did I understand what crap they came up with in this new version where one needs to sell both their Lungs to afford it as Kidneys are not alone enough now.
A company which started as a counter culture idea has became one of the most mainstream, status quo brands in the history of capitalism.
Sad to see that stupid humans buy this crap and fall for something which can be achieved in less than 100$.
Fuck you Apple. Steve must be turning in his grave.36
