Must've been when I coded something of the core module of a game... into and with the test interface.
I was reminded that by my colleague who initially made this and spent a huge ton of time more than anyone else on the project. I felt a bit powerless while trying to assist in that, but I also felt bad about that error of mine.
That or that time when I set my whole system to protected and read-only during a system programming exercise because it ran out of memory real fast.
Okay, I knew one of my colleagues was actually a work freak, but to this point...
He's been working for most of the day yesterday on a school project, and so was I. Satisfied with my progress, I push the code with TODOs on things we had to agree on tomorrow as well as mentioning it in the issue associated with it on Git, with my last commit a bit before 11PM.
I wake up, with a ping on Discord asking me what was that "bug" I just pushed, wondering what editor I use and asking me if I even use the console debugger. Said "bug" was the point of discussion I said we wanted to talk about tomorrow, I replied in the morning. But he decided of the fix on his own and committed it, as well as other things until... 3AM...
Honestly, I don't blame him for choosing at our stead, he's the leader of our branch and the Gitmaster on top of that. I just reproach him to call it a bug, not see the issue, and all that while he could, you know, sleep. And get some rest overall.
This dude has been working himself madly these last weeks, where he did about 80% of what each of the team member was supposed to do in a whole semester (which amounts to 150 hours of work) for this project (we're nine folks on it).
Now I'm pretty sure it's how he works and that he still gets a decent amount of sleep (like I dunno, until 9AM or so), so I don't expect a response beforehand.
And indeed, as he woke up, he replied to me.
There needs a garbage collector in real life, for those who pass in front of you, walk in front of you, and light up a cigarette to smoke it while you're behind them.
"Yeah, but isn't it worse than those entering the tram after having smoked?"
Here's a better question: where's natural selection when you need it?7
I give a draft version of my report to my colleagues so they can review it with things to add or correct while I eat. One of them:
"This report is really well structured. I think there's nothing more to add. Good job!"
I think the finishing touch consisting of "[...]" here and there had him fall in love with it.
The advancing of technology makes you prefer to take public transports instead of walking to go to work.

I wish I could invite the me of 3-4 years ago to my room and prove him wrong.
Basically, the me of 3-4 years ago thought: "What do I need a home PC for? I got a laptop."; hell, he always forgot to put the laptop with the plural 's', because understandably, for his study life, he took low-cost PCs that would only last like one year.
But my boy, laptops are cool and all, but have you ever experienced the complete comfort of a proper desktop? In addition to the bonuses of a home PC in terms of performance, it leaves a much better space for work than just a portable terminal in front of you and pretty up close to compose. The accessories didn't even cost me much. And it feels great to have everything in its own, right place: the screen at the bottom, the phone standing on its holder, the earphones on your head, your left hand on a mat with papers potentially on it, your right hand on the mouse, which is on the mousepad and also on that mousepad, that character you adore so much, when both said hands are not on the keyboard, beneath the whole table, or on it when no papers are on the way.
Seriously, that pleasure I longed for was something you could have started, me of 3-4 years ago, right when I began with my studies.
But I have no rancor over you, I'm still onto my studies, so this is still something I can take profit of, during my student life, thankfully ;)
I'll just take note at your stead, of not being too stubborn over things that can do oneself a greater good, objectively. :)6
I actually hate to work when there are kids around.
I get so unfocused when they run amok and shout around that I put points in front of my class names in DOM elements.
OF COURSE MY SELECTOR WON'T FIND IT!
Yet another reason to not be a parent, I guess.5
It has arrived! :D
To think it was all thanks to my "noteporn" rant and all that I was eligible for those stickers. Weird flex but ok :3
In any case, thanks again to the devRant team for providing such a good network to all kinds of developers or aspiring developers alike :)4
So it's been a burden I carried for long.
With the way I set npm up, I unconsciously did the installing process with sudo, and thus can't use npm properly without a sudo.
Is there a rather not convoluted way to set it back up so I don't have to use sudo again for that?11
Oh, now I understand why my past self had some pain in the neck in front of his computer. Twas his future self (the latest version of me writing this post) strangling him for the terabyte of duplicates of so many shit spread around my external storages.
Over 1 Terabyte of duplicate data among the 2.5 Tb in use, in the 3.5 Tb of maximum storage I have.1
>closes laptop to let it cool down at 5:10PM
>5 minutes later, boots back up on its own and doesn't go back to sleep
>opening and logging back in
"We have an important update for you planned for 5:30PM"
OH NO YOU DON'T, you fucker!
Shit like this makes me wanna call Windows the McDonald's of operating systems.3
Cordova: "Requirements check failed for JDK version (requires 1.8.0 or greater)"
Also Cordova: "Detected version: 11.0.2"
Lately, I've seen in some article against the Electron framework and read some people thought that "the Web, in general, is a waste/curse/..."
Did I miss something somewhere about that? I know Electron has that Java syndrome where it has to pack so many things in one executable while it could be less heavy than this (here, the Chromium browser for instance), but the Web in general?5
So first reflex in looking what Electron development looks like was making a Hello world app. So it just makes a window saying "Hello world".
Then I proceed to editing the menu, and the quit option is "Goodbye world"... and I realized, or at least I thought... this is a bit... grim?1
To be fair, I wonder if for a future job where I get to contact clients by phone, or even before, I could make a workaround using my phone plugged to my computer, with Wireshark or sth in the background intercepting calls, and identifying and btfo of scammers and phone surveys wasting everyone's time.
Idgaf if it's too ambitious, I wanna find out for myself, even more when I get a call now.1
Me: "I wanna mod Ikemen so it can have tag presets, a replay recording manager, a player card for online games, a gallery,..."

I'm trying to get started in making language syntax packages for Atom, mostly for two languages that are not so used as of yet though (Lisaac and S-SIZE), but I wonder: does one really have to upload the package to npm in order to be able to use it in Atom yourself?
Tfw your algorithm ain't even that great compared to the others, but you still hit a 18/20 cause you did the project in the teacher's language and alone :maximum_dabbing:
I think I have accidentally invented the term 'noteporn' the moment a colleague saw my lesson notes taken in LaTeX and said: "Wow, your notes are so beautiful one could fap on those!"5
As much as I may look down on Python for how simple it may look, I'm happy of it for having done a pomodoro with music playing in that language.
I'm sure that will help in dealing with my 4 projects and exams due before a month.
"[Gen] WRONG PIPE, BUCKO!"
- One of my processes, from a program I have made, to tell myself I have made a mistake
Anyone else using Enki has had most of his bookmarked insights and some of his courses unsubscribed?3
So I am doing a homework with the language my teacher made. He said we could opt for either Java or Lisaac, but he said the latter would be pretty hardcore. But I feel hardcore is just an understatement, and outside of an absence of documentation on the object methods which makes you look all the way through the library files when you look for one method/object, then another, then another and all, here's a single fact that will express my feelings:
In his language, there are three main types of errors:
* Execution errors: the program crashes when something that shouldn't be possible is attempted (looking for an item in an array that's out of its range) ; ok, I can take those
* Compilation errors: syntax errors, semantic errors, type incompatibility... the classic, ok, I can take those, I'm used to it
* Compiler errors: when the compiler compiles in C, but fails to do so! "Mister, am I allowed to ragequit?"6
I remember when I was on Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 18.04, there was that weird glitch on TeXstudio where it initiated a system shutdown signal when I just press on the power button, even for less than half a second.
And now, I don't have this problem on Xubuntu. I still don't know what were the circumstances of this glitch, but I don't think I need to bother about it for now lol
Story of coding affecting my dating?
Well whenever I start a new language, I always find myself having difficulties with time and date structure-
Wait, that's not the subject? ... oh the other kind of "date". Well, not finding difficulties for something I'm not looking forward to lol
