Dev related: To actually finish my projects instead of working on different ones, and end up finishing nothing.
I said I was going to create my own operating system. I started it, but barely. I haven't touched the compiler I was working on for months. Oh, and I'm working on an android app related to writing. I started it a while back, and never got to finish it.
My need to stop starting new projects, because if I keep doing this, I'll never finish anything.
Non dev related: To get my manuscript out of the slush pile, and finally published. It's currently in the dreadful querying process.2
Don't you just wish you can delete things from the internet forever?
I used to be a host on this show, not telling the name tho. It aired every Thursdays at 10 pm. And in case anyone missed it, the television station would post it on their youtube channel.
I was so desperate to remove it that I flagged it a bunch of times, but I knew it wouldn't work.
I'm dying of embarassment because everyone is finding it. It doesn't air on TV anymore, so that youtube channel is the bane of my existance.
I even got the idea to search myself up and delete any social media accounts, because I want to be nearly invisible on the internet.
That worked out. Except for that damn youtube channel.
I was a fucking 14 year old. I looked weird, acted weird, my mom made me dress weirdly. I was so nervous, I licked my freaking lips ON CAMERA. Not to mention, I had acne, and my skin was dark at the time because I was fresh out of middle school, and I did cross country in middle school.
Now I'm curious. Does anyone else have something embarassing on the internet that they can't get rid of?31
I'M AN IDIOT.
I accidentally typed the wrong command when I was compiling my C++ code with GCC, and guess what?
My .cpp file is gone. The .exe is still there, but that's useless to me right now.
It wasn't an important code, just something I recently started on, but I can't believe I did something so ignorant.21
I hate Linux so much. I mean, how could anyone of you barbarians like it??
I don't understand the hate for windows. It's secure, emphasizes privacy, and it's Microsoft. What's not to love?
Linux is just proprietary malware.30
I wish there was a way to feel well rested without actually sleeping.
Or maybe I could somehow learn to program in my sleep.
I would be so productive, and finish so many projects if those options were possible.17
Just curious, how is it like to work as a developer. I mean, as a profession and not a hobby or freelancing.
From devRant, so far I know that you work in an office, the managers and bosses are assholes, and people always write unmanageable and undocumented code.
What else is it like? Do you get to work alone or do you have to work with people? Do you stay there all day long?
I know its still going to be a while for me, but I want to know how it will be like.27
Personally, the best way of getting through tough dev days is by reading books or writing stories and poems.16
So many people are applying for computer science majors that it's making me nervous.
My classmates don't know shit about tech yet almost all of them are applying for CS. It's even the most popular ranked major in the US.
I don't think I stand a chance against them. They all have higher GPAs than me, and they participate in clubs and sports.
If those cave people get accepted I'm not going to be too happy about it.65
I decided to go back to freelancing.
But there's a lot more devs than before, and I almost forgot how difficult it was to attract clients.
Oh, and I can't believe I forgot about their shitty attitudes. I don't think a nice client even exists.8
Any other Americans participating in the walk-out?
The school said it'll count as a cut which sucks. I'm still excited, it's my first peaceful protest and act of civil disobedience!22
So when I was in 7th grade, my parents took the door away. Don't ask, they're just strict.
I got it back in 8th grade, but after that, it wouldn't latch. I tried fixing it for about 3-4 years, and no matter what I did, it wouldn't work.
So today I was desperate, and I loosened the screws from the door hinge. And guess what? Now it's fixed.
I wasted 3-4 years trying to fix it when all I had to do was loosen the screws.
It worked because the side where it latches is higher than the other, so I thought if I loosen the screws, it'll lower it.
And it did.29
Before my forensic teacher allows us to leave, he always says, "git."
I think he's from the south which is why he says that, but I always have the urge to finish it off by saying, "hub."21
Every since I've stared programming, I've been doing it almost everyday. But, I haven't programmed at all this week, and I already forgot the command to compile a C++ code.
It was just one week. What kind of idiot forgets things in one week?24
I dropped my phone and the charger port broke, so now I can't use devRant that often until the replacement comes.
At least I still have devRantron and the web app.16
Why the hell would someone name their function printSomething?
I literally just got a message from an old Sololearn user needing help with yet another thing.
The moment I saw that function name was the moment I logged out. Stop using shit function names.22
My school is fucking messed up.
There's rumors about a sophomore that's gonna go shooting in the school. The principal is taking extra precautions because of the thing in Florida AND what happened this year.
I made a rant about it, but ended up deleting it. I think only @Shellbug saw it.
But earlier this year, there was a Freshman with a gun. We were on lockdown and according to the rumors, he wanted to kill his unfaithful girlfriend or something. It was scary because he was banging on the door of my Forensics class.
There was a picture of him getting arrested, with the police taking the gun. I won't post the picture here.
No one was injured. He's probably in prison rn.
Anyway, I'm at school rn. I dont want this fucking rumor to be true. The one about the Freshman was a rumor going on for an entire week, no one took it seriously until it was too late.31
This isn't really a hacking story but it does remind me of something I did as "revenge."
In middle school, this one fool kept bullying me. Always tried to harm me, always tried to insult me, always tried to make me fall during PE.
I hated him a lot, so instead of trying to kill him as planned, I did a harmless little keylogger prank thing.
I installed a keylogger on the school's laptop before class. (I did it during break, and when class started, I placed it on his desk.)
He took the bait, and instead of doing work, he logged onto his social media accounts. Now I had his passwords and everything.
When I went home, I logged onto his social media. I checked his messages so I can get some dirt on him, didn't find much except for the fact he snuck out a few times, and smoked before.
I changed his profile picture to some cringy anime thing and messaged one of his friends (the one who always copied my test answers in History and would steal my homework) and I said, "tell --- that if he doesn't stop being an asshole, I'll do worse than "hack" his social media."
It freaked them both out a bit, but didn't change their behavior, which is a shame because my threat was empty. It's not like I was able to do anything more than that in middle school. To this day, they still have no idea who did that.
This was about 4 years ago.17
If you think you know the most idiot person in the world, you haven't met my brother.
His brain absolutely can't comprehend anything!
He forgot his Roblox password and told me to do something. I said I can't do anything about it. Then he yelled at the top of his lungs saying, "you don't know technology! You're too stupid and selfish. Fix it!"
I said I can't do anything about it. He throws the mouse at me and says, "I never get to have fun. You ruin my life!"
He's not a little kid btw. He's fucking 14.
Today my mom forgot to pay the wifi password, and she thinks its better not to pay it today so it can stop my brother from playing games. (He plays it from morning to night. No homework, no cleaning, no nothing. Just games all day.)
So he told me to fix it. I said I cant. There's nothing I can do. Then he punches my arm really hard. (He's taller and stronger than me so it really hurt) then he threw a shoe and said, "you're useless and stupid! You have your laptop so you can have fun but I never get to have fun. You ruin my life, and I hate you. I hate my life."
Then he ran to mess up my room by tossing things from the self, removing clothes from my closet, and messed up my bed. He pushed my sister, pulled my hair, and ran to his room, slamming the door.
Please. Please someone give him a brain! He desperately needs one. I said I can't fix it, and that my mom has to pay the WiFi bill, but he thinks I'm being mean.
He has the mind of a 5 year old. Dropping to the ground crying.130
I was on Tumblr and I thought I was on devRant so when I was scrolling I kept wondering why everyone kept posting book aesthetic pictures.
Either I spend way to much time on devRant, or I need to sleep.7
The shirt from the google code in challenge came :D
I'll probably wear it inside only since it's one of those tight and small ones. I like longer and looser shirts because small and tight ones are too revealing.63
There's crows everywhere! I literally mean everywhere! I live in a culdesac and they are all over the streets and cawing in everywhere it is really scary.
This is the best picture I have of them, but majority are in the camera's blindspot, like behind.
I've never seen anything like this and the caws are really loud.26
Someone hacked into a teacher's school district email, sending random stuff to the juniors.
When the principal sent an email saying any help in catching the perpetrator would be appreciated, a bunch of people from my classes were staring at me throughout the day.
Programmer != hacker
I hope they don't report me, I didn't do it. :/36
If you name your methods a, b, c, x, z, etc
Then I hate you.
If the idiot wants me to help then use proper method names!28
