You ever have these days where you're just bored out of your mind at work and can't get anything done so you start bothering others?
Well today... [read more]5
Can we just fucking stop with reposting commit strips already?
Not a single fucking release of them goes without it being posted atleast 3 times here, 10 times on facebook and fuck knows how often elsewhere.
People who want to see them will follow them and see them anyway.
And atleast fucking credit them if you still gonna be an unoriginal leech anyway9
"The path of the righteous dev is beset on all sides by the inabilities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil devs.
Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, comments the lines through the codebase of the darkness.
For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost knowledge.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my repositories. And you will know I am the Lead when I lay my vengeance upon you."

I DID IT.
Arter being stuck on a freaking hellish bug that had to do with some obscure edge case for a month i've finally fixed it.
All i had to do was remove ONE condition from a while loop 🙃4
Working from home yesterday when I got an angry call from an ex-client. (We don't work with her anymore because she is known to be extremely unreasonable)
After a couple of minutes of uninterupted yelling i politely told her i'd put her through to my hairy higher up "Sjors" whose in charge of these matters.
Seemingly pleased with this development of getting to talk with a higher up she actually managed to stay quiet for a minute while i was walking downstairs. Only to go into full yelling mode again the second i said "thanks for waiting here he is"
Sjors was more than happy to take the call while chewing his bone. Slobbering about.
It took about two full minutes before she realised my colleague is in fact my ever loyal golden retreiver.
She hasnt called back anymore afaik. 🙃11
Boss wants to launch beta on Friday.
After telling him that that is a really bad idea he is still insisting on it.
Guess who's gonna block his number over the weekend 🙋🏻♂️1
Testing my email filters today after receiving an email about the "gender" section of my form. Which only has male/female in it.
The person sending the mail (it) apparantly has "some" knowledge of the inspector and tried to edit in some gender.
Upon failing to do so i got a not so nice email, asking why i don't support all the other genders. And i got called some names instantly for being a sexist pig and whatnot. It waa obvious this person wasn't even trying to be reasonable.
Now i got small patience for people like that. So i send an email explaining why i couldnt add other genders. The reason being i render my gender form as a boolean. Male true/false. And that even the female option is just a placeholder that does nothing.
Apparantly i'm now on some gender hating blacklist or something. As my mail filter is just crunching about 20 mails an hour of people calling me a bigot amongst others.31
Unity fps counter: 120fps
Profiler: 170 fps
THEN WHY THE FUCK is it clearly running at only about 30 fps8
Day 2 of refactoring the mess my "senior" ex colleague left behind completed.
So far removed 3837 lines of code (from 17468 total).
Removed around 230 unused/duplicated assets.
Cut down the total apk size from 214mb to 163mb.
On average frames render about 3ms faster.
Fixed 2 "unfixable" bugs he'd ignored for over half a year.
And the code is actually becoming readable, and far from done yet.
It feels so good to not be obstructed anymore by an ignorant "senior" dev7
So just worked 14 days on minimum sleep to meet an impossible deadline as best as i possibly could.
Didnt have any time to properly test anything that had to be implemented.
First "proper" testing was done by my boss 2 hours before deadline and he's unsatisfied because of some minor bugs and sound values being off.
I wanted to become a cook for quite some time. Only con was that i disliked a lot of shit.
Ended up making spaghetti all day anyway...3
*after 4 hours of trying to debug a crash on the samsung s8 specifically, without a single error or log showing*
Me: reckon jumping out the window from this height will be a good alternative to continueing with this?
Colleague: sure, atleast it will probably be painless at the least.
New intern: *stares at us with wide open eyes*
Me: yeah take a good look son, this is the future you've signed up for.
The look on his face? Priceless1
So our office is located in a shared floor with multiple other companies. Every unit has its own alarm and security system.
And every God damn day someone somewhere manages to fuck it up and make their alarm go crazy. Without fail.
How fucking hard is it to disable your alarm before opening the door you thick skulled halfwit.
Some people are trying to concentrate and get actual work done.
That moment when your boss starts offering pills to colleagues against stress...
How about setting more reasonable goals and deadlines instead? And not change the plan and design every day.7
Your "easy and fast" hacky way of doing things aren't "easy and fast" when your colleague needs 2 hours to debug and fix the shit you fucked up with your "hacky ways".
Even after pointing out it was shit and broke alot of stuff he still stayed headstrong saying it was easy fast and the best way to do it.2
Boss: can you try doing X and y?
Me: no that won't work.
Boss: you haven't even tried it yet
Me: I don't have to because I know it won't work because this and that
Boss: can you try anyway?
Me: that'd waste alot of my already little time to finish this
Boss: just try it anyway
Why hire devs if you think you know shit better?9
There was this annoying fucking bug flying around my head for 3 nights straight.
When I finally caught the bloodsucker I hit it so hard it opened up a spacial tear into another dimension.
Put up its head on a stick as a warning to future bugs.
Am I doing this right? 😅3
I've been going through some resumes lately. And apparantly it has become the new hype to show your "expertise" in a language with some fucking pie chart or whatever nowadays.
They'll have some fucking graph saying
Stop putting fucking nonsense in your resume. If you think you have mastered a language for 75% by the time you leave your nursing school grow the fuck up.
Anyone doing this will immediately get turned down by me11
I was just starting to lean coding, and had just about learned what the inspector does...
So in a drunken fury I decided I would make a FaceBook/Google hybrid.
So I opened up old trusted chrome, went to Google and hit F12 like the madman I was. Copied everything into my shiny notepad++, went to Facebook and appended my file with their code..
Infuriated that it didn't work I made an SO account and started asking questions. (I have since removed said account out of shame)
I'm not a very clever drunk.. (note I was about 20 by then and should've known better even drunk 😂)4
Well this is a new one.
Had to download some forms online from a governmental institute. Tried logging in and I shit you not I got a message saying "we are currently closed, are opening times are X to Y"
BruhFuckingWhat.exe since when did servers get human rights and working hours8
*browsing some fresh SO questions*
Hey! I can help this poor fella out, I have been in his situation.
Take my time to write out a long answer explain what was happening and for what reason, links to documents and resources to back it up.
Write some example code on what I would suggest doing, again providing the underlying documentation.
3 downvotes, and a snarky comment from the OP that my example code wasn't tailor fit to his application. Accepted answer was literally "try this: <my code tailor fit to his application>", accepted answer.
Seriously what's the point in just copy pasting a tailor fit answer which doesn't explain shit on how you can solve the issue yourself next time?
Just hire someone to code for you if you don't have half a grains braincell to actually learn to do it yourself you ungrateful idiot7
