Anyone worked or researched on visual question answering!?
I need a best way to start a research on that topic for my thesis!2
Customised my Ubuntu VM using
I3wm, polybar, Compton, conky, rofi,
And zsh shell !
The theme is inspired by unixporn subreddit post!
Btw it took 4days completely to do9
My one of my favorite open source project was Re-think DB!
It was highly light weight real-time DB.
One fine day, I read a blog by the CEO / founder, telling we are under loss since there is no financial support! and we are closing it, by just keeping the website and docs of prev version alive!
I was heartbroken , for days!
This takes the top place for favourite oss project
It has high no. of stars in github than Mongo db, reddis, etc..2
Hey, anyone in ethIndia hackathon (Bangalore, India ) !?
Iam searching for a team !
If anyone can take me in ?
I am newbie to block chain, but can do some stuff !
Please comment, if ur interested!3
I started running a Database benchmark yesterday morning, with my system configuration, expected time to complete was 36hrs(arround), so I left it and made sure no one disturbs (I stuck a note in the monitor) because it was on common system in the lab.
Then I went to my other work.
Evening ,I came to check the progress, my monitor was switched off, I thought its in power saving mode!
Fuck, I bend down and see the CPU is off!
Wtf!! Who shut it down ,even after the note.
Then I saw the electric outlet was off!
Then after wards asking ppl in the lab, they told ,the cleaning person was cleaning the switches, so yeah she could have by mistake!
* I facepalmed *
So again, I set it up with frustration!
Today morning ,I came to see the progress
FML, from no where ,
" It's in Windows automatic repair loop! "
It's been 3hrs, trying to get out of that loop without loosing the data.
1TB of data is there, took 1month to setup all the things
Fuck Microsoft for adding these kind idiotic stuff in windows.
Is there a spirit in the lab not allowing me to do benchmark?
Recently was in a recruitment hackathon for leading technology company.
So, to test ppls networking, team building skill they grouped ppl into a team.
I was teamed up with noobs, and had very bad experience.
One guy in the team was arguing to use PHP for developing a web app.
Me : What PHP framework are u good at!?
He: what is framework !?
Me : like laravel etc..
He: no I meant we use plain PHP!
Me (mind voice) : go fuck yourself, I am bailing out , I Do not need the job
Me : It's ohk we only know NodeJs , so, gave a wierd smile
He was still arguing ,but I gave 0 f***
This is considered as a fight!?
Yeah not the worst though
Apparently the recruitment ppl liked him a lot in my team!2
So ,was interning in a MNC ( one of the top IT service company ),
So an another intern changed her code, and later the software stopped working!
She panics and her manager comes,
He comes and says "it's ohk , just take ur time and figure it out, but from next time backup ur work by sending me a copy of code in email ! "
I facepalmed, and was laughing!
Do these ppl know there something called VCS!?2
I think there is a seperate place for GDPR mails in spam!
Come on, even websites like Topcoder Hackerrank etc.. are sending it..
Exactly, this meme is so relatable!
I was working with MPAndroidChart (Charting Lib), most of the working functions are deprecated! And new ones are not working
Had to fix a bug in flask App built by 3 ppl !
So I some how roughly figured out the code and was trying to fix.
The bug was
I click on submit, two times the record was entered into database.
(Second time, duplicate error).
So to figure out ,I just commented the code which inserts to DB!
Now only one record is inserted!
I still don't know where it's actually inserting !, And IDC , problem fixed
Shall I boast about my skills!?😂3
So arround a month back , I was watching videos and photos I clicked in the vacation I went.
All the photos and videos were in a 1TB harddisk and I connected to my TV for better viewing experience.
In the mid way, I had a power cut and suddenly TV switched off.
This was not supposed to happen because my inverter has to kick in !
Fuck it , something happened to my inverter and delay was just enough to switch the TV off.
Now TV is on , harddisk is recognised and
Hell yeah! There are no files in the harddisk!
I lost my shit !, Before I do any thing, I tried to recover the files, luckily some vacation images and videos were recovered but all of my project source code(the ones I Did not push it to github, those were done when I was learning), most of my documents etc.. were gone!
May not be the worst one , but I lost all my coding memories.I mean those projects were done in my school times.2
Yesterday I saw video (it's a sketch),
Where in a scene, there is a meet where the presenter says :
"We should use SAS instead of R Tools ! "
Do u guys agree??
BTW I completely lost my Mind after hearing that!2
I was part of shortlisting committee for workshop happening soon.
So I wrote a script to rank the entries according the answers given to particular question.
There was particular question asking " link for thier social presence?"
Guess what more than 60% ppl wrote as LinkedIn, github, stackoverflow..etc !!! instead of giving the URL.
So I thought of ranking these ppl low, out of frustration, and modified my algorithm such that if those were entries ,rank lower, but my algo failed for one entry which had linkedln as the entry and my algo Did not rank him down.
After 1 hr of debugging found that entry had spelling mistake it was spelled as Linked"L"n.(font was not able to differentiate)
F*** that guy !2
Using WhatsApp beta,
Got a update today , I installed
Saw my contacts, it said "No contacts" invite friend.
Iam like WTF ,what happened to my contacts!?
Now iam thinking on the developer ,who pushed this update!
I had registered for Machine Learning course in my university. It's a new course offered after looking at the subjects usage in industry.
The professor handling it ,have completely no idea ,and experience on ML., So yeah
His 1hour lecture is complete stand up comedy show for the students.
So, today he comes and says "ML is based on Probability", and explains probability, like for 8th grade students.
He put this question on the board, telling that ML revolves around concept requirements to solve this question.
Probability of getting sum of 7 or 11 when a pair of die is thrown?
Guess what, he tried to solve the question and got wrong answer.
I was highly interested in the course,since my project required it and thought it provide me great fundamentals, it's been 3 weeks I regret for opting it.😥
My first exposure to computer was at age of 6years.
My father had a very bulky laptop built by HP (I Do not remember any name of it).
It used to have sliding switch to open ,I used to put my whole power into open it.
It was running windows 98.
All I knew that time is
Start -> All program -> Accessories -> Games -> 3D Pinball !!
Then ,my father saw I was quite liking the games ,and he dual booted with fedora. I remember there was game tab with lots of flash games in fedora.
Like Tetris, games similar to candy crush, snake etc
BTW I got to know it was dual boot many years later.
I remember fedora because of that "f" logo.
I still remembered that After dual booting to Fedora, I was unable to start windows to play pinball (due to the boot option u get), I used to complain my mom that pinball opens if father starts the laptop, it doesn't open when I start!
I feel stupid now ,for that😄
Every time I try to git init ,and push the code to github,
I always forget the cmds to do it!
Every freaking time ,I have to google.14
Why do u use Terminator !?
When u can create multiple terminals and arrange them in the window!
By the way Terminator does not look appealing! But it's choosed by many why!?9
There is a parody of "Cheap Thrill's" by Mongo DB.
Yes Mongo DB ,it was for thier product promotion(Mongo DB Atlas)!
BTW it's one of the best DB I have ever used, it binds well with NodeJs
Here is it:
I know its way old ,but just want to share
The state of all fresh ranters..
Is like win update, 98%working on updates then ,stays there for ever.
When they (ranter) want atleast one rant to go 20++ ,
Then, one rant goes till 19++ then stops.
Why is GOTO deprecated and not recommend!?
It was fun in school days programming, I used to write code randomly then use GOTO to sequence it.
Did anyone had fun with GOTO!?15
My exact reaction when ,I was researching on legacy programming language and their copyrights for my intellectual property rights subject.
Python was released before Java did.
But the popularity Java claimed was faster than python
Python first release date 20 Feb 1991
Java first release date 23 Jan 1996
Could anyone explain y python gained is momentum later!?2
I tried to tailor two best things together for a wallpaper.
I used paint to do it, Did not have space to install PS
I tried setting up XAMPP for running my friends code.. it took 5hrs and faced atleast one issue in every step from installation to running.
1) XAMPP Did not download itself, found that internet was down.
2) downloaded finally, installation phase went till 98% fatal error, windows collecting info for diagnosis
5)after 3 tries , suddenly it installed successfully
6)Apache force shut, every time I started it
7)1.5 hours later found VM had occupied the port 80, making it shut.
Changed the port
8)PHPmyadmin was recent ,that SQL 5.1 support was not There.
9)Now after setting up new instance of MySql 5.6 , created conflict.
Project referred one instance and PHPmyadmin referred other
10) Changed port numbers and added service entry in windows to make it work
At last the struggle ended up with happy ending.
My installation story precisely
Iam new to PHP development and XAMPP.6
