When you order a bezillion tiny things at small prices to avoid toll on one large package, and you have no fucking clue if everything has arrived.
Arduino stuffs, LEDs, resistors, stuffs like that wherever its cheap for those wondering.3

Hello Google, I know you're watching.
There's still room for improvements in your search algorithm.
Sincerely, you know who I am.12
Yet another thing i think is fucking stupid.. GDPR btw.
So, a guy in Denmark owns a grocery store and has an issue with people stealing from him a lot the last couple of years. He catches them on tape and shares it on social media to try and prevent it.
Im not sure why it didn't work to go to the cops, but it didn't.
What the owner ended up doing, was hang a note on the front of the store so people could see it before they entered, see attached image.
However, now he has been notified what hes doing is illegal, because the "user" doesn't consent clearly enough.
I dont understand GDPR, but if you do, you're probably gonna find mistakes in what i wrote.

Its his fucking store, if people steal from him he should be allowed to post it on pornhub if that was his desire.
It's illegal to kill someone, but if you're threatened on your life, you may kill in selfdefense.
To me, those are the same, just one is on a much more serious level of course.
Im not sure if im a good or bad person by allowing my users to set a weak password.
They get to use almost whatever they want, but it may be bruteforced easily.
I let users decide their own security on that point.5
When youre about to go on a 1 week vacation and you start to move all your projects to your FTP server as if theres no tomorrow, just in case you need them on your old ass laptop youre bringing.
Also bringing books. Some small, some thicc1

Guys, HTC is launching a Blockchain based phone.
The title goes like "First blockchain phone from HTC is coming soon".
I dont know if this is worse than the AI video i found on pornhub.12
I'm almost at the point where I give up on this project, I'm banging my head too hard against the wall here.
I'm making an android app that should make it easier for local fishermen (hobby stuff, not enterprise things) to submit their catches to the local unions. For that to happen, I need to be able to fill a form in the app, more specifically, this form: http://karupaa.com/dk/...
After some research, I managed to figure out its probably a POST request, but I may be very wrong here.
Also figured out the URL to post to is probably either the first url given, or this one: http://karupaa.com/dk/...
I'm extremely confused at on this area, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
I dont really know anything about POST or GET requests, except for the quick comparison I read on W3Schools. Its an area Im lost in.
I think its time to go to bed 😐

Im finding parts for my brothers new pc, and i really think that Ryzen 5 2600X is a great choice.
But then one of his friends said that Intel is better for gaming, and suggested an i7-8700k.
The price difference doesnt mean much, my brother just wants whats best for gaming, and now im starting to doubt my own decision.
Which CPU would you think is better for gaming only?
Literally gaming only, not even school . Its only gaming.
Lets not start a war, i just want pros/cons, straight up facts or your experience with either :)14
I was going crazy for not understanding it.
I went to binary to decimal converters.
I tried applying my own messed up logic.
I was about to post a rage rant.
Now i realized how it works.. fml
And yes, i took a picture of my monitor, enjoy eye cancer :)12
I purchased a preamp / compressor / de-esser / spectral enhancer / expander/gate to reduce noise from my mic. Its 1 item, it has a bunch of things you can touch and turn.
Now i just gotta figure out how to use it properly... xD2
I'm developing an app for a not so mobilefriendly website.
I do not coorporate with the webmaster, yet, so I need to sort of reverse engineer my way around everything (basically just one feature.. xD).
It's a website for people who likes to fish, and they *have* to submit their catches. So, when people submit their catches via the form and click "Submit", the URL they are sent to goes like
I can't figure out if that is a POST request, or what it is.
Somehow, I need to submit a catch from the Android App, and all I currently got is that URL.
What do I need to look into to solve my issue here? Any help appreciated :)22
External hard drive reliability question.
Im looking for a 2-4 TB external harddrive, depending on the price (best bang per buck).
I found a Seagate Backup Plus Portable, 4TB. It seemed reasonable, until i googled failure rates of seagate drives.
Do you guys have any recommendations for me? Anything is appreciated :)15
Im helping my brother build a pc, and i try to make him try a linux distro before he purchase windows, simply because i regret not doing so.
Now i got some thoughts going tho.. We both have/will have Ryzen 5 CPU and GTX 1060/70/80. Will there be any compatibility issues with some linux distros with that?
Iirc Nvidia cards had some minor issues on linux.
My brother will mainly use it for gaming on a serious level, and i use it for development and gaming for fun.
Also any distros you can recommend? I had a peek at Manjaro, it looked cool.13
External Storage recommendation questions.
Im in need of some sort of external storage, either a harddrive or a NAS server, but idk what to get.
Price should be reasonable for the security and storage space it gives, so heres what i figured so far for pros and cons:
+ Bigger capacity
+ Raid option
+ Easily expandable
+ Always accessible via the network (local)
- Difficult to transport (not gonna do that, but still)
- Physically larger
- Consumes power 24/7 (i dont pay for power currently)
+ Easy to pack away and transport
- If drive fails, youre fucked
- If you want larger capacity, you end up with two external backups
What do you guys do? Im not sure what i should do :i
Any advice is appreciated.
It will be used for external backup, as mentioned. For my server and my own pc.12
Ive been looking for a new keyboard for a while, im currently using some wireless HP membrane keyboard, no idea of the model.
I stumbled upon a Corsair Gaming K70 LUX RGB MX Silent.
Anyone have experience with this keyboard? Is it silent as the name indicates?
I really cant make up my mind if i should buy it. Its price is lowered 33% this weekend, but my current keyboard functions just fine. Usually id say i shouldnt, but a part of me wants to. Im split in half xD12
I need to know WHY THE FUCK one decides that the Esc button should TERMINATE APPLICATION WITHOUT ANY FUCKING WARNING...
Ive been playing Pokémon on a GameBoy Advance Emulator. Ive gotten used to saving every now and then, but out of habit i press Esc and not TAB to go back, and thats when I GET MANHANDLED WITHOUT CONSENT ITS NOT LEGAL FOR FUCK SAKE
Would there EVER be a case where this shit would be good to have?8
I really fucking hate when people or companies do shit like this..
Apparently Google is changing the salad emoji, which is a bowl that contains lettuce, tomato, egg, onion and stuff like that, to the same, but without the egg.
Why you may ask?
Well.. they did it to "make it a more inclusive vegan salad".
ITS JUST SOME WHITE PIXELS FOR FUCKS SAKE. How would any vegan, besides the crazy ones, be upset about a moist egg in their crisp salad?
I cant even.. im out of words.. fuck.
Additionally, the news page i read it on have been so kind to host a poll of what people think about it, whether its a good idea or not.
Ill let the image speak for itself, if you really need a translation, dont use google translate, ask in the comments.43
Flutter may be great. I want to learn it, so i decided to make this small app in Flutter.
About 2 hours later, and I STILL HAVENT POSITIONED THESE FUCKING BUTTONS AS I WANT IT.
I calm down a bit, and decide to not give a shit about the position of those buttons.. Moving on to launch an URL when one of them is clicked.
Found sweet few lines of code i could copy/paste. Ans tadaa, didnt fucking work. Fuck. Googles a bit, turns out i forgot that hot reload is not for major changes, my bad.
I decide i want to add a few extra features, so fuck Flutter for now, im going back to Android Studio.
Reading Flutter is great, writing it with no knowledge of Dart is.. what the fuck did i even think.7
