It makes me feel like a whore when looking for jobs.
I don't really wanna do it, but I'm in a situation where i have to do it to survive.7
Fuck! My brain just had a catastrophic forgetting!!
I can't remember the PIN of my Android phone that I'm using right now. Luckily, I'm still in because of my finger print but won't help is phone restarts.
Seems like your can't reset PIN without entering previous PIN.
So Facebook was apparently inflating the video views stats.
I'm have a doubt that the view counts on tiktok is also massively inflated to get people hyped.
I mean on tiktok, you can see videos with hundreds of thousands of views but barely any comments or interactions.2
Maybe it is too much of a dream, but I wish to work as rednurevoc tnega as a passive job.
I like the thrill and purpose of such a job.
The activity tab on Instagram has gone now..
That feature was really useful in understanding the people better - their quirks, their secret desires etc.
It helped me learn people without really talking to them at all..
So disappointed 😑5
So a client is apparently ignoring my request for payment to continue the hosting services for their blog ( which has been inactive for a long time ).
Thinking of getting rid of the client. I wouldn't mind if they voluntarily left because they don't want to pay, but now it's like i have to force them out.
This is going to be a rope walk. I wouldn't want their few hundred followers coming after me.
Thoughts on new Surface devices?
I'm particularly impressed with Surface Neo as a light weight laptop on the go.
I could see myself buying the next generation of Surface Duo, looks promising than other dual screen devices I have seen.9
A developer's true soul mate is a designer. It's like yin and yang. They will make a perfect couple atleast in professional sense.
If I'm gonna marry, she's gonna be a UI / UX designer.8
So Facebook is shutting down AccountKit.
I was using this service to enable signup / signin using mobile number.
Guess I'll be switching to Firebase phone authentication.
So it looks like my 80+ yr old grandma finally managed to get hang of her touch screen smartphone. She was recently set up with WhatsApp.
She has called me quite a few times today and when i ask what's up, she says she is just testing it out. It's so cute *-* and makes me happy to know she has learned to use it and called me.
I wonder how it must feel for her to be able to use this technology which was probably never even imagined during her young age.
Holy FREAKING shit!! This was worst stupidest mistake I have ever made!
About 9 hours ago, i decided to implement brotli compression in my server.
It looked a bit challenging for me, because the all the guides involved compiling and building the nginx with brotli module and I was not that confident doing that on live site.
By the end of the guide, the site was not reachable anymore. I panicked.
Even the error logs and access logs were not picking up anything.
About a dozens guides and a new server and figuring out few major undocumented errors later, it turns out the main nginx.conf file had a line that was looking for *.conf files in the sites-enabled directory.
But my conf file was named after the domain name and ending with .com and hence were not picked up by the new nginx.conf
I'm not sure if I wasted my 9 hours because of that single line or not. But man, this was a really rough day!4
Just saw a breaking news scrolling on TV about Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook being down 😂
I find it hilarious - it shows how dependent an average joe have become on these services.5
So I hear some drama going on in Vuejs community related to next version which will bring breaking changes.
I was just getting into Vue and feeling happy about learning such a beautiful and simple framework.
What do you guys think?14
So today I went to a nearby computer shop to buy the Asus Vivobook 15.
Left that shop with not only the laptop and it's free bag, but also a free USB flashdrive, a free set of 6 glasses and a free set of casseroles!
Getting kitchenware items was the last thing I expected from a computer shop.
The sales lady was really nice too. I'm really glad I bought it offline than ordering it online, the price was same as well.4
Currently on the market for a new laptop for work.
I'm thinking of Asus Vivobook 15 with 12GB ram and 256 GB SSD config. I don't trust Windows and it's performance on HDD. Since I'm coming from Macbook, I would really hate having to wait about 5 mins for system to be usable after boot up.
Slightly tempted to spend more money and go for a gaming laptop for that I can play Spintires sometimes. But not sure if it's a good idea to have a gaming config laptop for work.
It fucking sucks that there is not much selection of laptops or even let you try demo of laptops that are put for display in the shops here.2
The number fake accounts similar to sudanmealproject is an example some people have no conscience.
I am very skeptical if even the "real" sudanmealproject is just an attempt to make profit off gullible people.4
Looks like my macbook air is dead. Screen went black just like that after I logged in.
My life is kinda ruined if I can't recover the data.13
So one of my friend wants to know what a programming job is basically like.
What would you share so that she may get interested in programming ?
I'm thinking of a personalised demo of pure basic chatbot using js which she can try on her phone browser.
I could later share the lines of showing the logical flow of code.
Any ideas or experiences on this?6
I just saw the Aladdin movie. It was a beautiful and fun movie. I loved it.
Will Smith was perfect as the genie. I don't understand why everyone created a big fuss when they saw Will Smith as the genie in the trailer.
People are dumb.13
Who the fuck sends good morning images to strangers?!
And there was this person who sent me images of good morning quotes out of blue on WhatsApp. I have never met or know this guy and vice versa. I was very creeped out.
I didn't recognise the phone number initially, but later I figured out that this person might be an employee of my ( relative ) client and he was using the mobile number assigned for the business like his personal WhatsApp account with his own profile picture and all. Very unprofessional.
He sent me similar messages for a week and I didn't bother to open the messages. I'm gonna pretend like I don't recognise the phone number. Anyways, his messages have stopped.
I hope I'll never have to face him or have any business discussion with him. I'm never ever gonna visit this relative client at his place as long as he is an employee there.10
So one of my aunt who is a school teacher had her Windows 10 + Ubuntu 16 dual boot laptop updated with Ubuntu 18 by the school principal. The school principal having no clue what she was doing, ended up messing up the boot manager. I hear she simply deleted the Ubuntu 16 system files to make space and proceeded to install Ubuntu 18. The school principal took no responsibility of the catastrophe because it worked fine with other laptop.
The school has no IT department or anything of that sort either.
Guess who had to help there? Me. However, I have no clue about that area, anyhow, I managed to show a way to bootup Ubuntu 18 which is what they use at school. Windows won't boot anymore.
About a month later, now I hear the drive where Ubuntu 18 is installed is full and it is causing some issues. There is no delete option on right to make space.
May God help them. 🤷🏻♂️7
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🤞🏻5
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.9
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?9
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
