Going on a trip in the middle east in less than 48 hours. Not gonna take my laptop. Can't risk losing it. Most likely will be offline for over a week.
Excited to see the pyramids and the holy sites. I wonder if seeing those holy sites for real would make me religious. 🤔
Most importantly, hope to be back in one piece🤞🏻6
Anyone using skysilk vps here? Is it reliable? What are your thoughts?
The website design looks sketchy, feels like a fake hosting provider.3
Idiots just prefer to berate you for using computer more than they do.
Fuck you. It's my tool that helps me do my job.
Don't compare me to some smartphone addicted teens.4
TIL running a proper CRM and Customer Support channel is quite insanely expensive.
All the services charge per agent.
And if you add their other services like email marketing, the price just shoots up.
Had to pull a jugaad, and currently have it split between 3 different platforms - hubspot for customer support, sendinblue for email marketing and zoho for free custom domain email.3
Cousin sis who was brought up abroad is back in the country, looking for further education opportunities.
Says she wants to study graphic design but from the short interaction i had, it seems she has no fucking idea about the basics of what goes into graphic design. Neither does her parents.
Haven't seen or heard any work or hobby from her that would make one think she has interest in graphic design.
Asked whether she tried doing some design and it seems she is not even aware of tools like Photoshop or illustrator.
It doesn't help that she barely talks at all and wants to get back to her phone. Compared to her, i feel like an extrovert lol.
People who barely interacts or expresses are cringey to talk to.
Trying to talk to her, I feel like looking at myself from 10 years ago.
The point is - learn to talk more. It can help you a lot in life.10
Do you guys take your main laptop with you on vacation / travel abroad?
I can't afford to lose my laptop. Every work is saved in it. Some important files have been backed up to cloud. But that's it.
Can't risk getting it damaged or stolen or taken in custody when abroad.
But, if something in my server fucks up when I'm abroad, i want to be able attend it and get it addressed.
I'm thinking of buying a low cost portable laptop to use incase an emergency situation happens.
How do you guys manage such situation?10
I may have over delivered my service to this first customer i got.
It doesn't help that pricing was dirt cheap and i over promised in a bid to make it attractive.
But in my hurry to please the client, I've been feeling so much stress since last 24 hrs. Dealing with customers suck. I hate this.
They can be little dumb and doesn't think much before blaming you if something's not working as expected.
I hate this feeling and now i remember why my initial business model was designed such that I wouldn't have to deal with clients.
But somewhere along the way, i forgot about that. :/
I wish I could get rid of this customer.3
The only time they ever come out of their pathetic walled internet is to attack your servers.
Fuck that country.10
I think my ultimate life fantasy is to chew mouthful of m&m's for hours.
It feels kind of extremely selfish and greedy to eat it like that.3
I'm just around 8kg away from officially becoming overweight.
As someone who had trouble gaining weight most of my life, this is very exciting!
Gotta get back to exercising soon. But I'm not a gym person. I guess I'll go for run or cycling along with workouts at home.17
I don't like it when guys use emojis when chatting with me. I find it weird.
But when girls do it, I like it. It's hot.🔥13
Some people are just disgusting liars. They find it convenient to lie rather than to keep their word. They don't deserve free stuffs or services.
This is why communism will never work.
Fuck those people.19
Anyone read this Android TV bug ?
It's mind blowing. I am out of words!!
I tried to buy this TV for our home. Well, crisis averted I guess.3
Currently in talks with a designer girl about collaborating and coding her designs.
I've put forward my deal and the price for the work I offered to do.
Will she say yes? Will this deal happen?
Let's wait and see.4
The monthly subscriptions plans are an open theft of customers money because of variable number of days in a month.
It's basically free money for companies with monthly pricing strategy.4
How to deny a "friend" who is asking me to lend some money ( what he is asking is the largest anyone ever have asked me )?
What's the social etiquette here?
I don't have good impression about him.
Few weeks ago, i changed my plans for him so that he could tag along with me to a place quite far away to apply for our course certificate . He delays the plan, not doing what he was supposed to do and had told me he would do.
I end up wasting 3 days waiting on him and finally goes on my own ( how it was supposed to be before I offered him free ride in the first place )
I don't like people who can't keep their words or let alone lie or don't tell you if they are not intending on keeping it.
Now I'm amazed by his nerve to ask money like that.9
So finally I just got my first credit card!
Now on, I don't need to worry about carrying cash when traveling abroad, enjoy free lounge access, buy things in installments and what not.
It's almost impossible to get credit card here without a typical 9to5 job. The best thing is I didn't have to work for it at all. It just happened. So that's something.5
I'm watching Seinfeld. I make mental comments like I'm one of the Seinfeld gang. Life has never been this beautiful.
So if you're invited to your "friend's" wedding, is it okay to say you can't / don't want to come?10
I'm this👌🏻close to buying affinity designer.
As someone who rarely get time to experiment with designs, Ai is just too expensive.
So Zuckerberg wants to integrate Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook together.
Maybe this is his desperate attempt to make people to not ignore his own creation - facebook.
I just hope this integration is optional and won't be forced.20
So my friend works in this big MNC company with good pay. He has had good education and certifications. He runs into a simple issue with someone's github project he forked and calls me for me help to debug the issue. Just helped him figure out the reason for issue over the phone.
And here I am technically "jobless" and loser in my relatives eyes because I'm pursuing self employment with no cool certifications to brag about.
Not sure if I should feel stupid for the choices I made in my life.2
About to shave my head. This will be second time ever in my life. It's almost like having reincarnation XD5
About a month ago I had looked up SMS gateway services.
I had checked out twilio few times then.
Today this happened. Coincidence? I think not.3
One Windows is being a bitch a won't boot. I forgot the login password of another one of my windows laptop. Internet at home is not working at all.
Also to top it off, i think i lost the pendrive with my cryptos
Not the best day of my life.1
So I was planning on a single page website for my relatives hotel websitte and offered to make it for free ( as an offer for other huge project i was doing for same person )
But just got told that one of my uncle told to tell me that website design should like the website design of another hotel xyz.
For second, I thought that other would be very nice. So I checked it out.
Guess what! That other site looks like it hasn't updated since 2005! No HTTPS. No responsive design. Looks like fugly crap from 2005 to me. Has a huge Click to enable Adobe Flash banner on homepage.
I lost my hope in humanity and I quoted a price for making that. I guess I just gotta do a shit job and will get paid for it now 😂3
Took me over 12 hrs to figure out why issues were happening on staging server and fix them.
