Dad: as if animals can use computers
My phone's been slowly giving out as apps stop working one by one. DevRant is one of the remaining apps that actually works. It's all I need anyways 😛2
Just found out that something like this would actually work in Java:
int a = 2;
int b = 1;
b = 2;
I know about the variable scoping part, but that doesn't means if the language allows this kind of shitty code you should use it.. Fuck took me 15 mins to resolve the merge conflicts. As during merge the 1st case was partially removed. And the code was filled with these kinds of logic. This could have been done in a minute without the shitty code..5
Got call from extremely angry customer, our product is shit and doesn't work. At all. Important customer so I went to visit.
He had the perfect setup, our product to the left, our competitor's to the right.
He connected the Ethernet cable to their product, it worked. He plugged it out and connected to ours... Nothing. Shit.
I started to debug on the premises, took logs, everything. It seemed like our product didn't receive any data at all. What the fuck? Tried everything, debugged low level, still nothing. Sweating as hell.
After two hours I got a strange feeling. So I swapped place, our product to the right, competitor's to the left. Now OUR product worked, competitor's zilch.
THE FUCKING ETHERNET CABLE HAD A GLITCH. IF YOU BENT IT TO THE RIGHT IT WORKED, IF YOU BENT IT TO THE LEFT IT WAS BROKEN.
I had never seen a customer be this embarrassed in my life. He apologized to me, my boss, his boss, the Queen, everyone.
We got the contract.19
Last year I made an app to generate project names. It now has over 1,000 downloads on Google Play. Sounds small compared to others, but I'm quite impressed from a personal side project with no advertising or publicity.
So my friend has two-step authentication for his smartphone.
Now he is not able to find his phone.
So, he tried to find his phone by logging into his google account via Android Device Manager.
Now, it is asking for the authentication pin which is in his phone.😂
He just got deadlocked.12

Stop labelling everything as AI, you attention and investment seeking morons! @&£$¢×xo##!29

I just received the most useful email from the COO since starting at this company. This email was sent to everyone in our company and the neighbouring company. I would assume that's 1k+ people:
Tomorrow <name> will clean the windows inside our building."
Thanks, I wouldn't know what to do without it.1
