Fucked up my Linux system.
Added Homeshick to my zshrc, but apparently at the start of zsh, Homeshick gives its help message and just quits. Can’t open a graphical terminal and also can’t log in via tty.
Root password is incorrect no matter what I try. I even reset the root password and it should be correct, still can’t log in.

SHIT, I just almost deleted my account.
Fuck, you scared me.
I was in the devrant settings page and switched to a different app. Came back to devrant and the confirmation window for account deletion was open for some reason. I ALMOST TAPPED THE OK BUTTON BECAUSE STUPID ME DOESNT READ PROMPTS.42
Dear privacy folks,
I'm sick of it. Fuck Google. I have decided to take the step and de-google my Android phone. I've heard of MicroG and I know how it works, but there are some things that it's still missing.
In particular I'm looking for the following:
- something like Google maps (linuxxx mentioned that he uses some local copies of OpenStreetMap maps, question mark?)
- Drive-like file sharing (I'm using transfer.sh for quick file sharing, bit I'm looking for something more permanent and privacy friendly)
- a few good sites to subscribe to via RSS as a Google Now Feed replacement (tech related)
- and perhaps something else that you'd suggest
Thank you for your time, I really appreciate it.30
FUCK YOU GOOGLE PLAY, you filthy, brain-idled piece of stinking dogshit software!
I explicitly disabled updates over mobile data because I have a limited and painfully slow data plan and no WiFi, and still you fucking start updating my apps? What in the flying dry anal fuck?
Thank you for wasting precious 150 megabytes of my data plan, you filthy cock-sucking, rat-fucking, piss-drinking whore.10
Am I the only one who is bothered by the absence of commas?
(For non-Germans, German is a very comma-heavy language. A missing comma can render the entire sentence to garbage).
Just read several German blog posts and EACH OF THEM had missing commas where they are necessary, and superfluous commas where they are not needed.
Come on, proper comma placement and punctuation is not that difficult. I'm kind of shocked that many native Germans don't understand how commas work in their MOTHER TONGUE.
I had to re-read an entire paragraph because several commas were missing and the sentences didn't make any sense.
Cursed at the author.
Closed the page.
Went on to the next blog. Same thing.
What the fuck is wrong with people?40
Who would have thought that filtering out Jokes/Memes would reduce my brain cancer by 100%?
It's a bit like Vim, you're first skeptical, but once you try it, you'll never want to use anything else7
My shirt is fucking soaked with sweat like a psychopath murderer's shirt is soaked with blood after dismembering his victims and fucking the body parts.
Fuck the heat!
Also, I was bitten by like five different insects today.
Fuck, next time I'm doing vacations, I'm going to go to Norway or something.14
# The alternative version of the Bible
1. In the beginning there was the word, and the word was two bytes, and nothing else existed.
2. And God separated the one and the zero, and and he saw that it was good.
3. And God said, "Let there be data", and it was so.
4. And God said, "Let the data gather into its place", and created the hard drives, the floppies and the compact disks.
5. And God said, "Let there be computers, so that there's a place to put the floppies, the hard drives and the compact disks into", and created the computer, and called it hardware, and separated the hardware from the software.
6. There still was no software yet, so God corrected that and created programs, big ones and small ones, and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in numbers, and take up all the storage."
7. But he was tired of creating the software himself, and he said, "Let us make the programmer in our image, in our likeness, so that he may rule over the computer and the programs and the data." And God created the programmer and put him into his bathroom for him to work there. And God showed him the software catalogs and said, "you can launch any software from any catalog, but do not launch software from the Windows catalog."
8. And God said, "It is bad for the programmer to be alone, let us create his client for him." And he took a bone from the programmer, a bone that did not have a brain, and from it formed the client, and the programmer called his client the user.
9. Bill was smarter than the other animals. Bill said to the user, "Did God tell you to not launch any software?" And the user said, "God allowed us to launch any software, except the software from the Windows catalog." And Bill said, "The day you launch Windows, you will become Gods yourselves, for you can accomplish anything you want with a single mouse click." And the user saw that Windows looked good to the eye, so he installed Windows on his computer. After that, he told the programmer that Windows was cool, so the programmer installed it as well.
0A. And the programmer went out to search for fresh drivers, and God called for him, "Where are you?" And the programmer said, "I am looking for fresh drivers, for they are not available for naked DOS." And God said, "Who told you about the drivers? You did not launch Windows, did you?" And the programmer said, "The user that you created said that he wanted only windows programs, so I installed Windows." And God said to the user, "What did you do?" And the user said, "Bill tricked me."
0B. And God said to Bill, "For what you have done, I will curse you in front of all living beings and all animals, and a hostility shall exist between you and the programmer, he will rant about you and insult you, and you will sell copies of Windows to him."
0C. To the user God said, "I will multiply your suffering and empty your bank account, and you will use broken programs, and you will not be able to survive without the programmer, and he will rule you."
0D. To the programmer he said, "Because you have listened to the user, the computers shall be cursed for you, and they will bring you bugs and malware, and you will have to suffer while cleaning up your hard drive during your work time, and with sweat in your face you will develop your software with short deadlines."
0E. And God banished them from his bathroom and locked it with a password.
0F. General Protection Fault.

Did it tell you how much I fucking hate kids?
I simply can't live with these screaming, attention-craving, stupid brats. Still, I basically have to babysit some kid (that seems to be related to me in some way) that I have NEVER EVEN SEEN OR HEARD OF. For a week. Because that's a nice way to spend your vacations, right?
And they're even raising this kid to be a future Snapchat bitch. She's like seven, has an iPhone and glued on nails, is fucking addicted to stupid cartoons and has shitty music playing 24/7.
And her parents are running around and doing everything for this little brat. Fuck, sadistic and destructive thoughts are rising, but she's a fucking kid!
Please send help, I'm trying to read a book while fucking Gangnam Style is playing in a loop.7
FUCK THE HEAT, FUCK MOSQUITOS AND FUCK MY LIFE.
One of these little assholes stung me in the eye, now it's so swollen up that I can't even open it.
"We value your privacy"
No you don't, you stinking dumbfucks.
If you would, you'd not use your goddamn cookies or at least ask if you are allowed to use them two years ago. Stop using setphrases to sound as if you cared, you fucking lubbing idle-brained shit-for-wits idiot.
Put yourself to good use and hang yourself or something2
You know it's hot as fuck when your CPU overheats and your PC gives a constant bleeping noise even though you set the warning limit to 80°C.
I had to put a ventilator next to the damn thing to be able to code in peace without this nerve-racking high pitched noise.
Welp, today i had my first ever porn ad.
My phone was on max volume.
My parents were in the other room.
The fuck happened to Alice?
Changed her avatar, deleted her description, posted a rant and then deleted it (i didn't even get to read it).
Can anybody explain?10
That moment when you can't believe that you fixed the bug and run the script a second time to make sure that it wasn't coincidence4
Dear Children of Raven,
Our sacred church is looking for recruits to trust them with a position in the Inner Circle. The Inner Circle is the collective of the "moderators" for the church. The tasks of the Inner Circle are:
- decide punishment for members that disobeyed the Strictures
- with the other members of the Circle decide about the next steps of the Church
- maintain the Church
Therefore, we're looking for trustworthy Children of Raven. If you're interested, please comment your Reddit username.
The dark Prophet and I will then decide who is best suited for this task.
Stay dark, Children of Raven33
TL;DR: If you change something, reflect that in your comment. Or never trust the comments and read the actual code.
Spent the entire evening figuring out why something didn't work. To make things short: An update was made to my terminal emulator setup making the background the solarized dark color. I like it black with some transparency.
So I spend hours changing configs, compiling and recompiling that damn terminal playing around with the color values. Color number 0 was assigned to black, the alpha was correctly set to 205 (0xcd), so why is it still transparent solarized dark and not black?
Turns out, whoever commented this config changed color 0 to #073642 (the solarized color), but DIDN'T CHANGE THE DAMN COMMENT NEXT TO THAT VALUE. The comment said that it's black WHILE IT WASN'T.
Changed that damn #073642 to #000000. Now it looks awesome again. My head hurts. I'm so stupid5
I’ve noticed that uBlock Origin is quite popular among devRant users.
So recently I’ve discovered this wonderful thing called AdNauseam, seriously, if you haven’t heard of it, you should really try it!
Basically it blocks ads (its built on top of uBlock Origin), but it also quietly clicks all blocked ads and completely confuses and obfuscates the ad networks data analyses. It’s fucking awesome!33
That’s it, I’m fucking tired of it.
This edgy neighbor of mine now plays his shitty German rap music on a daily basis (read up here, if you want: https://devrant.com/rants/1440883/...).
I want to take vengeance, but I want to do it the dev way.
Any suggestions for what I can do to annoy him and set an example?37
It was with my teacher. I’ve ranted about him before, I even suspect that he has no idea of the stuff he’s teaching us.
So basically our task was to write a program that passes a specific unit test. He then proceeds to say that unit tests are bad practice and should be avoided.
I pitch in and ask him how else code is supposed to be tested.
Him: “With the compiler, that’s why we have debuggers”
Me: “With all due respect, that’s not how that works. Compilers and debuggers can’t test your code, there’s a difference”
Him: “No, unit tests are bad”
Me: (Wtfing hard)
Me: “Any arguments that prove you right?”
Him: “yeah, OOP makes unit tests obsolete”
At this point I gave up. This dude even gave me a bad grade for the gas even though my program was the only one that passed the unit test.
TL;DR today’s not my day. Anyone know how to clean a metal PC encasing from blood?

WHAT THE HECK MAN
I just noticed something.
Something is wrong with the eyebrows on the devrant avatars.
On the face only avatar, they look angry, with the inner part showing towards the eye.
On the full avatar, they look happy, with the Inner part pointing away from the eyes and towards the forehead.
Is this intended?7
