I can't believe it took me about 17 years to accidently press the back button on the mouse (mouse button 4?) when Visual Studio had focus. Apparently you can go back to the previous code file by using the back button...4
Just cloned a 90 GB Virtual Box, 15 minutes later when the clone was 90% done, I got an error message saying that I don't have enough disk space (I had only 80 GB). WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT 15 MINUTES TO GET THAT INFORMATION????4
I was just asked to correct a bug in a form, so I opened up Visual Studio, loaded the projekt, and opened up the code for the form to start debugging:
3500 lines of code in one form!
Encapsulation and classes are fresh ideas...from 30 or 40 years ago!2
Way back, 20 or so years ago, when I went to the university, every student got an account so that we could work with the Unix machines. Every user got the same default password, -apollo-, still remember it until today, and one day I felt a little bit evil and I tried to login to the administrator account, of course the first password I tried was the default password and it worked!!! I got super scared and told an older student about it, who was brave enough to scare the administrators a little bit by leaving a message like "you have been hacked!!!" or something similar. I was just too scared to do anything about it. All I wanted to do was see IF I could login ☺️ my few minutes of being Mr. Robot... Guess hacking was not for me 😃
Just remembered an old dad story:
Around 30 years ago I started a game on my Commodore 64, I was about 15 at the time, and back then you had to load the games from cassette tapes.
So I started the cassette player and waited for the game to load, and when it was done I stopped the tape. My dad saw this and he asked :
- "Why did you stop the tape if you want to play the game?"
And I guess it is kind of natural for someone who used cassette tapes for listening to music, to say that :-) Still I laughed at my dad...3
Whenever a language has a goto statement I can't resist :
On error goto hell
// error handling3
I hate when game developers make games without difficulty settings. Some people are more interested in the story, some are handicapped and so on... Don't tell your users how they should play your game...1
Life as a developer:
Yesterday I could reproduce the bug everything I ran the program, but I could not debug it. Visual Studio would not break at my breakpoints.
Today Visual Studio works fine but the bug cannot be reproduced at all.
I should have become a florist instead...4
Saw the following SQL in an SP at work:
Type_ID = CASE Product.Type_ID
WHEN 1 THEN 1
WHEN 2 THEN 1
WHEN 3 THEN 2
WHEN 4 THEN 3
Seems a little bit redundant to me :-)...1
