I submitted a PR on Eclipse Che, filed ECA, etc. etc.
It's not my first contribution however, I've been working on their dockerfiles repo for a while.
...then they merge my shit without waiting for QA...
excuse me what the fuck2
Is yubikey actually more secure than just super wide public key authentication? I mean cryptographically, let’s ignore the “2 different sources” factor unless that’s literally the only difference5
Recently, I failed a lot. Most of them were interviews. Some failed at code challenge. Some of them were leet code type challenge. Some failed at less quality vs other people. Used to be ashamed or angry. Now able to embrace it. Thanks to jack ma's documentary. Start to integrated his philosophy into life.3
My VPS provider makes me go through the most long-winded and unnecessary process to reset my account password, but whenever I spin up a new server they send the username, password and IP address in an email.10
Me in the last 6 months:
Lost interest in games
Lost interest in work
Lost interest in guys
Lost interest in girls
Lost interest in coding
Lost interest in planning new projects
Lost interest in devRant
Lost interest in computers and technology in general
Regained interest in girls
Regained interest in guys
Regained interest in devRant
Regained interest in games
Regained interest in coding
Can't be fucked coding anymore though, so I just think about it
Regained interest in planning new projects, but can't be fucked doing it, so I just think about it.
Now interested in becoming a pastor, but, ...that'll take too long and I don't think the world is stable enough right now to even bother.39
When you move a bunch of cables you haven’t touched in a while, and underneath you find this 🥳
Guess I know what I’m taking to work on Monday.2
Hi!, Greetings fellow ranters,
I got into thinking this past few days. Because over the years, i really wanted to start my career as a freelance web/mobile developer, i'm not planning to quit my job(yet), but i want to slowly but surely build my freelance career. I just need some advice from you on how i should optimally or best approach this goal, and where/how should i find clients or what sites should i find clients, i know freelancer.com but I've heard other freelancers who had nightmares with it, upwork is also kind of overcrowded.14
Fucking awesome. The 'encryption backdoor law' in Australia went through!
Now, whenever served with such warrants, companies which are active in Australia will have to pay hefty fines if they don't give encrypted messages to law enforcement in readable form. No matter whether this means just decrypting it with the keys they have or pushing backdoors/inject code into the messaging apps/services in order to extract the contents.
Now let's see how much the big companies really care about their users! (I'd expect them to pull out of Australia but the chance that this'll happen is as tiny as about nothing)31
C#? Should have used Java
Java? So much boilerplate, use node
Typescript? Lipstick on a pig
React? Should have used Angular
Angular? Should have used Vue
Vue? Why aren't you using jQuery + HTML
VSCode? Use vim instead
Stfu, no one gives a shit about your biased closed minded opinion. Your users really don't care what technology you use, so long as they're happy.14
Boss: Hey funny guy, It's your First Work anniversary. Congratulations and now share your thought on completing a year with us.
Me: Thanks Lady, All I wanted to say is Life was good and then I joined this project.
Boss: Told you, Funny guy. Now get back to work and I want those fixes by EOD.
Root's shortest and best rant ever:
I tendered my resignation today!
I feel so happy and free ^_^43
This post is a random, but who cares?
So about a year ago, I got a message from (at the time) a random guy with more ++ than me. This guy was @linuxxx. The message went something like this:
L: Do you want to join our little privacy chat?
L: Ok. send me your email.
.. And that was my gateway drug to the coolest group of people I have ever met.
Eventually riot.im got boring, then we moved over to signal and I met even more cool people.
So. After a year and a few weeks, I would like to say Thank You to this group, and to devRant for being an amazing place where like-minded people can meet eachother and learn from eachother.
Im going to inevitably forget some people, but the groups members are mentioned in the comments.52
Having an eye for detail and being annoyed by slight imperfections is extremely annoying at some times.
Yesterday I spent the evening setting up elementary os on my private laptop and I wanted to start coding a new personal project after setting up my IDE.
I ended up spending the evening trying to fix the font of my ZSH terminal which annoyed me so much but was absolutely not blocking any progress. Moral of the story: sometimes you just gotta let go3
An interview scene today:
Me (interviewer): Ok so tell me this.
Candidate: Umm, aaaa, blaa blaa blaa blaa, this and that.
Me: But I didn't ask you this.
Candidate: I don't know the answer to that but I know blaa blaa blaa blaa, this and that.
Me: It's okay if you don't know the answer to my questions, we will skip to the next question.
Me: Asks how "X" works and why should we use.
Candidate: Umm, aaaa, "X is a .." blaa blaa blaa blaa, this and that.
Me: Okay, I already know what "X" is, please tell me how it works and why would you use that.
Candidate: Umm I don't know, but I know X is blaa blaa blaa blaa, this and that.12
Son of a... insurance tracker
You hit delete and I’m stuck with this reply!?!
Stuff it, I’ll rant about it instead of commenting.
How’s an insurance e company any different to google tracking your every move, except now it’s for “insurance policy premiums” and setting pricing models on when, how, and potentially why you drive.
Granted no company should have enough gps data to be able to create a behaviour driven ai that can predict your where and when’s with great accuracy.
The fight to remove this kind of tech from our lives is long over, now we have to deal with the consequences of giving companies way to much information.
- good lord, I sound like a privacy activists here, I think I’ve been around @linuxxx to long.29
Wow... Magento 2.3.0 Adobe is making cray cray changes, strict PHP typing, Interfaces and Chains, rewrote the stockItem interface today on my module because it is deprecated as of 2.3.0 and the changes are just.... wow.... Adobe gots some developers.
The Turbografx 16 (or Turbografx PC-Engine in Japan) has the most amazing fucking expansion port I've ever seen. Every bus is exposed, plus sound out and IN (unused by anything ever made for the thing), composite out (not included on the console itself, but 3rd-party addons allowed it), VGA out (!!!) and CPU HALTING/CLOCK CONTROL were included over this fucking thing.
You can even power the system with 5v in through the expansion port and bypass the power switch with it.
Info and diagram:
To get composite out, send pin A22 out and ground the ground wire of the composite to any ground.
For VGA, it's a little more complex:
VGA1 to TG-A23, VGA2 to TG-B23, VGA3 to TG-C23, VGA9 to TG-A2, VGA13 (and VGA10 if you want compatibility with older displays) to TG-B11, VGA14 to TG-A10, VGA5-8 (and 10 if not hooked to TG-B11) to TG-C2
(VGA numbering from Wikipedia diagram)
this thing's fucking cool1
My friend - the admin of the Ancient Tor-relay got a green light from his ISP to activate the Exit policy for his relay again!
Bahnhof is a damn good ISP!9
So a friend of mine ran a Tor Exit node at home for a few month.
He upgraded to gigabit so he was able to push 950Mbit/s quite nicely. He has the oldest Tor Relay (11 years) and was the 2nd fastest exit node.
But he was sadly forced to remove the exit policy, because the police and some other government agencies knocked on his door today.37
the code from a school colleague. So written that you must load the index page and are redirected to a second. if you try to load the second page you get errors. Many errors.
Regarding my last rant:
I have all my 3 Raspberrys set up for seti@home now, reporting to twitter and my own "surveillance" system for them.
The system is still ugly, the code is ugly but that's getting improved next!5
Here here to another year. So it's year end and I'd like to share an insight why I'm not happy.
> Left good job but the pay wasn't so good
> Lost girlfriend, I blame myself for this
> We were on the same project, so naturally my entire project is sabotaged
> She gave away my very first API which I built by myself
> Been unemployed 2 months and did nothing
> Got hired for react js and AngularJS but boss wants me to do java backend
> I DONT EVEN KNOW JAVA, IT ISNT ON MY RESUME
> And I might not get gold 🏅 medal for the academics
2 years from now I'll switch from industry to academics, I want to shape young minds properly1
