So the train service has an app in my country to buy tickets, reserve seats etc. So doing corona the seat reservations has been made free, to limit the amount of people who travel by train.
So this morning someone/something fucked up the the endpoint to buy tickets/claim the seat that is required to travel by train.
So apprently whrn you clicked by the request were excuted fine and it id claim the tickets server side, but due to (i assume) an error in the response the app would return a error messsge and not generate the tickets etc on the app and nobody realized that. So people kept rebuying the free seats, so up to multiply trains had sold out all the free seats, so no one could use the trains who were full due to their policy.
Took the company at least a few hours to realize it.3
Shout out to the electrician working for our client, who choose to pull the plug to our server hosted by the client.
Like who the fuck does that, and then just leave like nothing has heppen. (I would like to think there were some kind og logic behind doing, but for now we dont know yet)5
Mood eternally suffering. I swear if i hear the word production one more time, i am gonna kill someone, we have been "trying to push to production" for this huge project for the past 3 mondays + today, everytime went shit.
From shit that should be made in the last minute(big changes), to missing reqirements from the client's side to misunderstanding between our team, leading to missing things due to the huge work load.
Someone just end my suffering already 🙃5
Do you know what i fucking hate? Companies that insists on making their own stupid ass launcher for their shitty games. First off all having a lanucher for every fucking game is ridiculous and ruin the point of having a launcher to launch games easier, if you have a launcher for every game you own, with their own account linked to each.
A good example of a Horrible lanucher is when Rockstar games first launched their launcher, it couldnt barely load, if it didnt crash and dont get me started on the horrible modern UI shit.
But so far the worst is the ubisoft shitty launcher that has only grown worst by the years, but when you their shitty launcher cant get any worst they are forcing you to use that for buying their newest games or using their even more horrible store that cant even its single purpose correct.
I do truely understand why people dislike AAA games, especially the big game companies behind them.
(To the first bitches, saying "But launcher monopoly is bad or companies are saving money by it" )
Well, that doesnt change that fact their joke of an attempt of a product sucks donkey cock.6
Fuck birthdays, i normally dont care about these kinds of things.
But i can feel its going to be a shitty day tomorrow, my mom gets fired tomorrow on that day after been fucked for years by scammers, traitors and other trash that rule the society in my country and if that wasnt enough getting treated as trash by people who are working for this trash government after been working for years in a low paying job and paid her taxes.
And if that wasnt enought its going to be a hell at work tomorrow. I would just eidh this shitty day tomorrow would disappear, so my suffering and misery would be gone10
Fuck fridays, fuck releases and especially s big fuck you to releases to productions on fridays.
So to give a little back story to my nightmare, we are working on a big system that are pretty complex for a big client. So 2 days ago we did get new feature requests/change how some of main things works (that would require big api/backend changes) So i am the app guy, so the chances were not that big for me, but due to the api changes i could first test it today, that started out to be fine everything worked, but like around 2 hours before our work day ended, i had to implement very simple thing. But everything went wrong, So i had to make some quick hacks, due to how i had designed it earlier. So the last 2 hours were a fight with errors in the api, and me getting pissed asf. 15 min overtime, the endpoint finally works as it should. At least it works now, i know everything else for that feature should work execpt from one option that i didnt get to test. (Its 50/50 if that part works). But i had to release it and have it ready for monday. So fuck me, now i need weekend and some time to relax.
I am sorry for my sins, for pushing some untested code :( (but the api is out of my hands)2
So i am doing a embedded project right now,
and the last feature i want to add, does require the use of a SD card. So of cause i cant use the built in API for the board to this, due to this model is one of the few that doesnt have the required pins (miso, mosi, sclk cs). So i have to use a library specially developed to this board i use.
So first of all the library wasnt even able to mount the SD card, so after fixing and making some changes to the library and happy me thinkingit finally works. Ohhh boy was i wrong it was only able to read files, so everytime i would use "w" for the FILE* and call fclose on it, it would delete everything on the SD cant (and of cause wouldnt write anything in the first place). It could mean some permissions shit on the SD card (which i have already tried). So now i am pretty much stuck. It would help if i acutally could find what the error code fclose returns means.
IIt has been a horrible day and i am tired and just wants to go to sleep and make this day go away.3
My familiy has always been pretty supportive about it.
But the open support & acceptance from my dad, really means a lot to me.
Also by reading so many sad rants for this weeks topic, makes me realize how luck i am, by having a supportive familiy.
All these random stupid ++ bombs, kinda makes me miss jASe when her used to ++ bombs everyone with all his accounts, only to delete them.1
A follow up rant to my former rant. I am not a hardcore privacy guy myself, but this is more of a matter of principle.
ts legit fucking bullshit how the bank just called me, if i didnt send a hell lot of informations about myself, then my bank account would be deleted and lose all my savings and money.
Its ridiculous how banks themselves have been able to do money laundering of billions of euros and the governments responds to this is to criminalise the average citizen by collecting a hell lot of data.
We are also talking about how companies are collecting data, and the laws the protect us from them, but in the end its pretty useless, so long governments are able to do whatever they want and we cant do anything about it.6
Wtf i discoverd a method inside a legacy controller that took a sql command as a parameter, that i could access via a simple http request since it was made in the controller.4
Apparently due to some new law last year that started earlier this year, to prevent white washing and sending money to "terrorists", its now required by banks to collect certain information to "verify" who i am. By sending screenshots of my passport, driver license and my yellow card (thats used for health stuff (has information such as the place of my doctor, my CPR number (the private number thats pretty important used to almost everything), ny current address as well as a picture of me, over some online shitty form.
All the parties voted yes for this bullshit, "because whitewashing and terrorism is bad". Calling Denmark a country of freedom and protection of their people is a joke. I lose my hope in humanity day by day due to their abuse of technology.7
Never had the need to feel imposter syndrome, due to i know people that are way dumber than me, could make it.
To give an example on some of the stupid shit i have seen from stupider devs than me. Yesterday at the company i am an apprentice at, me and an senior were debugging some shitty legacy code, from a comapny known to write shit code.
Here is some example of the idiocy from the company that used to maintain the projects we maintain now.
1: LoginActivity: Would first of all sending a soap request out to check if the device ID is whitelisted, then it would sending another one out to verify it, and then if it doesnt exists it would sending another request to that would make create the request (on the admin panel, were the devices can be whitelisted / denied).
Like wtf 3 fucking calls in a row and its fucking on the UI thread, stupid motherfuckers.
2: login soap request, lack the fucking authorization logic, like WTF you could even login without typing anything in the input fields. (Well it does have another system at least to only allow verified/whitelisted devices)
If those stupid motherfuckers that i heard were some fancy pantsy developers with university degress and years of experiences, can make it. Then every fucking one can make it.
The idiocy me and my colleagues have seen the last few months from that company (at least they did go bankrupt some years ago). Is beyond words.
So to anyone with imposter syndrome, if they could make it, everyone can fucking make it. Remember those idiots are likely multiple dimensions below you and could make it.
First of all i generally love everything about the company were i Work, the only bad side is the location.
About the location this monday i have to use public transportion for the first time in a while, so me looking the prices up like wtf the cheapest ticket type costs nearly $25 just for one way, that would be around $50 dollars for traveling expenses that day, one single fucking day, like thats close to around half a salvery earned that day.
Like what the fucking fuck, because of this Corona bullshit they arent selling the cheaper ones on their app.
Fuck Denmark, fuck public transportion and fuck everything.
I fucking tell you, its only in Denmark its worth shit to work, when everything is overpriced.2
So it was just announced that a lot of people from places such as schools, educations, and a lot of workplaces will be in quarantine for like 2 weeks.
Literally everyone from my old place i was "working at" basically got 2 weeks "of holiday" as well as my entire familiy expect from my dad due to this overhyped fancy flu called coronavirus.
So yeah its fucking great to know i have to work for a salary with a ridiculous tax rate, while everyone i know gets 2 weeks of relaxing time.
To understand the bullshit, get that my salary increased by 100% from the last place (was pretty shit before, but is pretty good now) so to understand the bullshit
(in the raw amount itself, i calculated that the amount i pay is 5x the amount as i paid before) so by the end even with 100% increasement, i barely get like 45% extra in my own pocket.
So yeah i have to work and still being "considered" a slacker by this "great society" while everyone can just relax and get paid for it. (not that i mind i have to work, i actually love it and the place i work is great)
I find it fucking funny how the government first thought about it could be a problem now, but didnt mind that our fellow citizens that returned from china and infected areas in italy etc, just freely could walk around.
I cant fucking wait for this coronavirus hype to die out.3
Fuck ISPs, i cant think of any other kind og business where its "accepted" to ass fucking their customers as normal service.
How fucking convincing to do a fucking maintenance in the middle of day (of cause only in my city) probably due to another fuck up from their side.
Dont get me startede og stupid most of their frist line supporters are, like fucking children who are able to read at decent level could do the same kind of job.
The slogans of danish ISPs are apprently (expensive and shitty).2
Fuck software thats locked behind, some kind of partner portal or some other kind of bullshit, for software to like devices as example, where the device is the product its self and not the apis.
The time i have wasted some of the days last and this week on contacting support is ridiculous. (at least at the end the support was pretty nice to give me access to what i needed)
Like all the problems i had run into the past few days, could easy been solved in like in a few hours maybe faster, if all the bullshit wasnt locked behind some partner portal, to understand the bullshit of locked behind" partner shit", i couldnt even fucking download the drivers.
It pisses me pretty much off, since it makes me look incompetent for wasting so much time, on something i know i could have done faster (this is my first apprenticeship so i really want to do a good job)
Bjarne Stroustrup, i generally like the way he thinks. In my opinion he took one of the greatest languages and made it even better.33
I am not sure if its qualified as a startup.
So me and my friend launched this platform (on android only for now) back march.
Basically its a platform, build around the idea to help each other. Let me come up with an example.
Let say you need help with something like "help in your garden" or "someone to babysit your kids" basically things you do in your daily life. Its also a way to earn money, by doing tasks like that.
It isnt really a big thing, but i do belive in it (its only a couple hundred registered users) and its only available in Denmark for now.
For me its not to build something really complex, but rather something that could maybe make the life easier for someone else.4
