I am lately being active on devRant, LinkedIn and Reddit.
I made some good connections and friends. Never socialised any better.
However, after I installed the dR app again, I ended up wasting my time scrolling more miles and posting more bullshit.
I keep browsing Reddit for stupid memes and LinkedIn for no specific reason.
I recently cultivated a good habit of reading and I mostly read eBooks. That said, I finished 2 books past month and half way through my third book.
I had a plan to complete it over the weekend but *sigh*
So now I have uninstalled the apps and focusing more on learning and reading.
BTW I am not addicted to apps, I am addicted to people I meet there. You fuckers are awesome.1
Any devRanter from Istanbul, Turkey?
I am on my way to collect my passport from UK embassy and I am sure I got the visa approved.
So now my new airline tickets will give me a 20 hour layover at Istanbul.
Not only I am excited to explore the city, but I am more excited to meet my fellow ranters there. Let me know what works.16
Mozilla Executive uses Amazon Alexa.
And they say, they care about the browser respects user privacy. LMAO
Someone please notify Google that we are past half the year. Smh!
What pisses me off is the fact that they rarely provide any relevant release notes and often don't provide at all.
Just because it's their platform, they do whatever they wish to. I hate this attitude.10
Monsoons hit the city. Let me welcome my seasonal anxiety and sadness.
Unless it is pouring at night, the light or drizzling rains make me sad.
And in other news, I overhead a friend saying my crush got married yesterday.
I'll be back, there's some dust in my eye.8
So here's the deal on how I WILL sort my life and fix the leaks:
1. Get into the new PM position as early as possible.
No matter what it takes. I will have to stay low key.
2. Meanwhile learn all the shit of and around Product Management.
Includes reading books, learning tools, methodologies, communicating and interacting with fellow PMs, courses, reading more articles, blogs and books. JUST FUCKING LEARNNNN.
3. Get a new job as soon as I get the new title on paper. Because I need MONEY for survival.
Also, I want to be in B2C environment instead of B2B.
4. Meanwhile implement the stock market script/algorithm based on the theory I learned. Guys it works and if any of you need it, shoot me a message and I shall share.
5. Invest and earn. Want to have a side income and distribute my investments too.
6. Start with that goddamn side project. Outsource it if required (mostly after I score a better paying gig).
Stop looking for Plan B, Floyd. There is no Plan B. There is only one and we have to stick to it.15
Any devRanter from Cairo, Egypt?
For my London trip, I have a 13 hour layover at Cairo on my way back home.
Planning to see Giza Pyramids. Might catch up with some cool people there.
Coffee never harms (except that caffiene triggers my anxiety, LOL JK).
Let's meet :)6
Anyone into Art and Events?
I am looking for some feedback and help on my project.
I love attending music gigs and not using social media like Facebook, I often miss out a lot. I have to scavenge the internet and dig for good content.
That's when I joined Reddit and it striked me. I started a community/sub Reddit where we list art based events happening around.
This way, we get to share and explore based on community model. Things are going really great and using agile I implemented quite some stuff. However, the limitations of Reddit were not allowing me to address users' needs.
So I decided to create a simple one page web app where anyone can share an event they come across and at the same time find out one shared by others.
I am looking for feedback on idea, design and functionality while at the same time a tech co-founder.

With respect to revenue or monetisation, I am planning Google ads once we have some traffic. This is mostly a hobby project so what are your thoughts on Ad based revenue?
P.S.: Mockups for the new card design are yet to be updated.24
I will be travelling to London this June to meet a friend and unwind a bit.
This will be my first international trip and in fact first aeroplane trip as well.
Those of you belong to the great city or have visited, what tips you have for me?
Which are places I must visit? And being a Pink Floyd fan what are the related spots I must visit like Pink Floyd museum, Battersea Power Station, etc?43
1. 1000 people are standing in line
2. All of them are numbered from 1 to 1000
3. All odds are removed
4. Line moves forward
5. Repeat from step 2 until last person standing
Question: what was the original number/position of the last person standing?
Consider array starting at 1.17
Petition to ban @Jase @realJase @whatever-the-fuck-jase from devRant.
Every vote counts. Choose wisely.36
Been a long long time guys, been really long time.
Though I check dR everyday for notifs, comments and mentions, I am unable to go through my feed and/or interact with you all. Something that I miss a lot.
I often want to rant or post something but just lack the time, enough motivation or ability to structure my thoughts into words.
Lots going on in life with new side projects which I have been nearing completion. New role at work and job hunt along with offline socialising. Have been spending time with family too.
I really really want to be more active here and talk to you all. To my old friends here, I want to have fun with you all with trolling each other and sharing some really great tech (and philosophical) knowledge. To new folks, I want to discuss awesome things we both know.
So if you know me already, tell me what's happening guys? Let's get back to some fun.
If you don't, drop by and say hi, let's talk fun stuff.
I am Floydian. I love music (Rock/Metal), also a Product Manager at Oracle who was a tester earlier. What do you do and what do you like?33
Found this on PlayStore review section of Truecaller.
Guess which intern is getting bashed for this tonight?
Maybe they don't even know what they are doing.7
I have been using this DNS by Cloudfare and have seen slight improvement in performance.
How reliable and trustworthy it is?74
Followup on my previous post: https://devrant.com/rants/2018847/...
shall I purchase it from Ali Express or local reseller, considering the price, delivery time and warranty?
How has been your experience?41
Looking for some help to setup Pi-Hole on Arduino.
I am extremely noob when it comes to coding or Linux stuff.
However, I would really love to setup Pi-Hole on my home network.
Can anybody here share any YouTube videos or websites which have setup by setup guide to set it up from scratch?
Please just do not say that it's easy and do this that and done.
I really need some hand holding as this is my first time don't want to fuck up. I'd be happy if I am able to setup one.74

Anyone up for Linux vs. Apple debate/discussion?
I like Apple for their design, simplicity, quality and early innovation (which ended when Steve left).
I dislike Apple for selling their stuff expensive, surveillance and monopoly (as in dictating in their own way)/
I like Linux for its open source community, ability for user to configure it, privacy.
I dislike Linux because it is not user friendly in any way, requires quite a technical knowledge for layman to use.
Maybe wrong comparison between a company and OS, but anyway you get the point, right?
How about open source vs closed source?28
None of the ads are deceptive. Singles in my area actually want to meet me and I am earning 50K every month by working from home.
Why'd you ask?9
This VPN is so great and had such an impact that I got my ex back, I won a lottery and now am on a world tour with the won money and my girlfriend.14
How much I hate Indian devs.
Those sick fucks have absolutely zero sense of business and respect for other roles.
No matter how much you try to explain and help them understand simplest of the simple concept, buggers make sure to confuse you beyond the limits of human sanity.
Moreover, they their ego and IQ is inversely proportional. They ruin every meeting by just rejecting everything mentioned or proposed by other teams and just do what they want. Why? Because fuck you and all your team members that's why.
All they want is credit that they are the only ones who are doing everything to build the product. Anything expressed against their opinions will trigger them like a feminist. And then they will sulk in a corner and not respond to e-mails or calls.
Dumb-fuck-assholes with no sense of professionalism and maturity.
All they want to do is have more and more meetings only to later blame others when they are unable to meet the deadlines due to their own incompetency. This behaviour pressurises other teams and get those people in trouble for zero fault of theirs.
I started loving technology when I met and interacted with new people across the globe (especially via devRant).
But after past few months of working with Indian devs, I now know that the politics at Indian corporates can turn even finest dev into an ugliest person who just shits crap everyday.
Above all, they are never punctual, do not respect their own and others time at all. They keep you waiting and waiting and then ask you to wait even more.
These are the people who are responsible when other roles are demeaned and less valued in Indian tech industry (for example QA and PM/BA).
Though there are exceptions where good devs exists, but the mass is comprised of donkey dick suckers who just want to rule the world alone.
If your design and code is so perfect, go and push it to production and when it fails, cry in a corner you retards. I HATE YOU INDIAN DEVS AND HAVE LOST ALL MY RESPECT FOR YOU.
Oh and did I mention that they just asked me to wait some more...4
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.72
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.16
