I do lots of things in Tor Browser, which is why the videos not playing is pissing me the hell off, and it seems that I'm the only one with this issue.
"no compatible source was found", no, yo mama is incompatible. Yo papa is incompatible. Yo grandmas are incompatible! Firefox, chrome, and that one other shady browser I have all work fine, but you asshole have a problem?
"your system may not have the required video codecs for mp4"??? Kiss my ass, both you and that mp4 of yours!! 😠😠😠7
So, the deadline is tomorrow and Imma probably lose my uni offer cuz they ain't got the matriculation stuff yet, cuz post is hopeless and the uni don't want these stuff online.
And last week I resigned from my last contract, because I couldn't keep up with both and I need to quickly learn the language enough to survive. (which I haven't yet. I can read and understand to a basic level tho!)
Anyways, which third world country gives a fast residence visa, so I can move there and basically vanish from the face of earth?
P.S. Now I know that the muscle spasm in upper back was due to stress. Cuz I got another one this morning. 😒😒33
devRant meta rant 🦆
A) Why the fuck do you use "#" in the tags when it does nothing cuz this ain't twitter, when clearly with a "," you can separate the tags? 2007 called, it wants its pounds back. (Euro giggles in distance)
B) I'm not a nice person. I "TRY" real hard to be nice everyday. So sometimes I just don't reply to a comment on my post, because the response would go along the lines of "I call that bullshit, I'm gonna even call that bullshitship, because it was way too much bullshit, so I shipped it. Now go fetch." or "I fail to see the relevance of your comment and your existence to reality. Bye." So trust me, sometimes you don't get an answer because I'm trying to be nice.
C) Occasionally, I agree or have nothing to say. Which is why I just upvote. No need to express further opinion where everyone agrees. So why do you dig into the comments? Do I have to have a comeback? No, I'm tired. And lazy. Go seek attention elsewhere.
(disclaimer: I also fail to respond whenever I'm hanging out with depression.)
D) Why the fuck do you comment on a dead thread? I mean, if the post is from 2 months ago, I'm not gonna start a conversation on something everyone forgot about. Live and let die, Elsa!
F) Why the fuck do you feel the need to bite the OP in the comments? You have nothing better to do? If it's not immoral or illegal, why do you need to rant on a rant? I mean, I get it, it's devRant, but it's not "Last Rant Tonight with John Oliver". So congratulations, You're an ass-hat!
YouTube is chocking itself today with this damn Royal Wedding. And the "not interested" button also doesn't work. How much did they get paid to shove this down our throats?30

Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."

** Trigger warnings: depressing stuff **
So, y'all remember how last week I got accepted in uni, right?
So, in the instructions for accepting the acceptance (AKA matriculation) I had to send a few doccos back. Deadline for these stuff to arrive: 14 days.
So I sent the stuff in five days (time-zone difference technically makes it four days), given that there was also a weekend in between, Aus Post promises a 2-4 days express delivery, so it should all be good by now, right?
I have less than half a week left, tracking the package online says it hasn't even landed in the destination country but it has left this country, rang up post office, they say it's not lost and will arrive soon and I shouldn't resend the doccos, I'm panicking, already emailed uni saying that it's not my fault but it's gonna be late but didn't receive any response.
And it was while grinding the potatoes for dinner that it hit me.
I'm done. I said 2018 is gonna be a good year, but it hasn't really been. I'm just about to lose all my hope in life, I have not had a decent job offer in the past six months, I got into uni but am about lose it to fucking post (for an infotech course, can you believe it? "Practice what you preach" mofo), I haven't really connected with a soul and feel like a burden with my friends and family (side effects of depression, I know, but it gets hard to push the thoughts away after a while) and I don't have any close friends physically/locally near me, my health has improved in the past six months yet I still have to keep an eye on everything or it's back to square one. So what do I have left? I don't feel lost, I feel like I'm at the end of the road...
And that's when the grinder lightly cut my finger.
Great. Now I'm bleeding from where I shouldn't.
P.S. Here is a duggo to make up for your efforts to read through this:
I came to like neverthink TV. Seems that what I need from TV is actually making me stop thinking 😛5
Dear Spark shell,
"""Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/slf4j/Logger""" to you too!
f off. 😒😒😒6
Why do I have to send these documents overseas in paper form? It's 2018 and you're still asking me to print, sign the damn form with a pen, and send it to the other side of the planet physically?
Well... The post is shit, expensive, and the tracking is more shit. This packet doesn't seem to have left the country yet and it has been three days. (post promises 2-4 days international express delivery)
I'm fucking losing it.... 😱😱6
An article about a dude killing his family in Western Australia finally got me stressed enough to disable these shitty articles on chrome. (android)
And you'd think a sensible person would leave such a flag in settings as well... Well, newsflash: chrome is sensible if and only if everyone and everything on this planet is dead.
Like, why should I even Google for it? It's like Google is so in love with googling that it just makes stuff harder for the average user so that they have to Google for every little thing! 😡😡1
If you think you can do any work while playing the game of "what's this headache?" (is it migraine? Is it tension? Is it dehydration? Is it low blood sugar? Is it that time of the month?) you're wrong!
If only I knew how to use a braille display... #LightSensitiveAsFuck14
Best advice I was given was a quote:
"Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live."
(There were many other good advices, but none specifically comes to mind 🤔)3
Gotta admit, never managed to fix this ancient printer's duplex printing, and it weighs on my soul forever... 😐1
We are delighted to inform you that you have been admitted to the University of ***** and can commence studies."
Aaaaand that's how I panic-happy cried for half an hour.
Let's hope I don't fuck this up.
P.S. Today was a rough day...37
I pulled a muscle in my upper back.
I cannot sit, I cannot sleep, life is hell, and I have spent the whole day in bed. Mom, who is taking care of me, so far just nagged about how I need a husband (!!!) to take care of me. Despite being open to many things, she still believes I, of all people, should have a man (?) to take care of me.
It was Sunday so I didn't push it, but I'm behind in one of my non-dev projects. I also should've wrote a letter by now withdrawing from my contract (which I've been pushing due to anxiety. I'm useless when anxious, really)
So, all in all, life is a pain in the ass, neck and back.
Kill me 🙃37
Giving in to the evil. Bringing back all the (potentially broken, or it will end up being broken eventually) dev environments to my local, instead of sandboxing with vms.
Fuck this shit.
I need my productivity back.3
Standard German keyboard has Z where Y should be and vice versa, but not in a virtual keyboard, where z, w, a, q, m, and z are misplaced which is super annoying for someone who's used to English keyboard. And I'm not even talking about symbols being misplaced yet!
I've mistyped enough words to make a new dictionarby now. Srsly.16
You know what's irritating? That dudes who started their degrees with me, who probably finished their degrees one semester before me (if not after), who don't have more than 3 years of decent work experience at max, are now setting their title in LinkedIn as "software team lead".
So, to them:
Like, I as a junior wouldn't let you lead a team of toddlers in crossing the street, let alone a software team! We studied together, and aside from you being literally an egotistical moron, I wouldn't trust your expertise, because you never learn anything deeper than a textbook memorization! I'd expect them morons hiring you to also notice this shit, but don't let me stop you, please, go ahead with your career! Be the lead! Let's see what fresh hell you're gonna lead us to!
You know what, I don't really care. I just have to look back so often now, to make sure you're not in charge in any shit I get to be a part of. And that sucks.9
When you notice a detail in your just-signed contract that nullifies it before you even start the job. 😐😐😐 I think I'm gonna get out of this contract, ktnx.
As the deadline for uni application results approaches, and my stress levels go through the roof, I promise myself that I'll go and live in a third world country if this all fails. I'll go where people are warmer and the tech is more backwards, and the dangers are many.
Is it considered reverse migration? 🤔13
I've been rocking the "low motivation mood" for a while now. And I'm stuck.
Can someone kick me out of there please?12
Jesus fuck! I just ran out of battery (laptop) and the screen did the creepiest shit, where the screen became full of a repeated pattern of strips of blue, red and some other color. Restarted, logged in, same shit happens. Had a few small heart attacks every time I saw this shit.
Like, in which world is this shit a sign of "0% battery"????
Fucking creep is now working again after being plugged. 😒3
