We're announcing a new update to our software `FUCK YOU` to include a new 'feature' no one asked and would give a FLYING FUCK about, but we were sitting on our MOTHERFUCKING ASSES and had to justify our salaries somehow.
So this new feature really just makes your life horrible by taking away or breaking all useful features you were PERFECTLY HAPPY with before, but FUCK YOU if you aren't happy with it and don't throw half of your salary our way every month.
Remember our library you were perfectly OK with, that u integrated in your codebase? DEPRECATED from this second onwards. WHY? BECAUSE FUCK YOU ! That's WHY.
Oh yeah, and one last thing before we make your life a living hellhole, give us your SSN, credit card(s) and mortgage payments to us, you money-hungry CUNT. Haven't you heard the phrase already? YOU WILL OWN NOTHING AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY.15
I am having a weird ass Sunday.
Nanos deleted his account off of Matrix and devRant, apparently after I hurt him in a group chat.
Chonky boii went back 117 days to find a rant, then find my comment and then "slammed" me.
How's yours going?48
DevRant is starting to look more like a shitty fucking combination of Pinterest/Instagram to me.
Everybody's taking memes/pics out of other sites and upload it here, as if we devs don't follow meme sites ourselves.
It adds scrolling length for no reason, but if you say something about it, incels jump in be like "wHy iS tHeRe aN oPtIoN tO uPlOaD tHeN".5
I read this thing today that went like -
Your friends won't become clients. But your clients can become friends.
It struck a weird chord in me ngl.13
TL;DR: I'm losing touch with reality and relatability and I am seeing it happen to me.
Context: As a dev, as we all do, I started with a low salary and was poor for the first 4 years of my career. I used to take pride in my poverty and because of it I faced difficulties in life.
Somehow because of that (and drugs), it gave me a fun personality and I was able to crack jokes about it and laugh it off. I was fun at parties.
But now, with moderate struggle, things are much better for me. I'm a YouTuber, I have clients and a full time job and I end up making the salary from just one client what I used to make in 2018 from a full-time office job.
Now, when anyone jokes about being poor and struggling, although I can still laugh with them, I pity them. I feel they are not working hard enough (even though I'm aware that I don't know their story, so it's a bad judgement and unfair).
I can no longer relate to my past self.
For me, I get sad about myself that I still don't have enough, while knowing I have more than what I could ask for.
I know this is not a good thing to happen to me, but it feels like I'm helpless. Sigh, I'm becoming a boomer aren't I?2
Calling all devs with multi monitor setups.
What made you decide to get another monitor? I am asking because I want to buy one, but can't *really* justify it.
For ref, I have an Asus ROG Strix G17 laptop which has thin bezels, 17.3 inch screen.
P.S. I am aware that I'm using 'rant' tag. Please don't hate me lol.16
I HATE Ostream !!!
I was walking up to my car today to run an errand and as I approached my car, I had this thought in my head - "I am a cartard". I legit started to feel guilt while I was driving.
I hate that ostream made his place in my head without paying rent.14
See, you misunderstood me.
I realized that I was wrong 10 minutes ago.
Now I'm just trying to piss you off.6
TL;DR: I don't like working with 'most' Indian people. And some stories supporting that written below:
A client calls me directly to get features/fixes done on their site. No middle management shit at the company I was working at, at the time.
So I quit the company, but the client has my phone number. So he starts texting me to get more work done. I tell him "I work for money, if you can pay me that, I'll do all the work you ask of me".
They praise my blunt-ness and say they will discuss it. And I never heard from them ever again!
Client reaches out to me and gets me to work for them for 2 hours/day and pays me INR 8,000 (about 95 USD) a month. I say fine, I'll do the work.
I do the tasks as they say for 3 months then I ask for a raise to INR 10,000.
They start pointing out mistakes in my work, and they say they're not seeing the "dedication" in me. Only when I asked for the raise. Not before that, mind you.
Vice President of the company tells me that he saw me in his dream the night before.
I've told this one before so I just threw that in.
At the end, I do like some Indians that I work with. It's just that most of them try to massively underpay you, or want to get the most work out of you as fast as possible and sometimes both.9
Typing fast is something every dev picks up as a skill because of course, its the natural progression.
But it's amazing how this skill goes to shit when your crush needs help and is watching you type something.2
I don't understand women sometimes.
Context: So, How government jobs work in India, is that you have to move to a new job posting location every 3-4 years. Not forever though, more like the first 20 years or something.
It can be a city or a village. And you can't say no against moving there. You'd have to quit the job which in India, is a MASSIVE deal.
My cousin sister had her job posting in Jaipur where she lived with her kid and husband. And soon enough, the news came that her new job posting is in Bangalore, which is about 2500 KMs away from Jaipur.
2 months ago, she and my aunt made a full-on hoopla in front of us saying things like - She'll quit her job. I don't care what it is, but family is always first priority blah blah blah...
Fast forward to today, she's living alone in Bangalore.13
Government: Taxes have gone up due to inflation!
Company: uWu, No problem sensei-chan.
Supply Chain: Manufacturing costs have gone up due to lack of supplies!
Company: uWu, No problem sensei-chan.
AWS: Server costs are up due to inflation!
Company: uWu, No problem sensei-chan.
Employee: Cost of my services have gone up.
Company: Listen here you little shit.14
I am at a point where I am watching my own youtube tutorials to answer my doubts. I don't know why, but I was laughing at myself.3
I have just realised this. I have my laptop for over a year now and I haven't changed my Desktop wallpaper for both installations of Windows & Ubuntu.
I am officially old (and lame probably).16
This has nothing to do with AI but -
Fuck AI !!
Fuck OpenAI !!
Fuck Sam Altman !!
Fuck the whole AI ecosystem !!
Fuck anyone who said AI will replace devs !!
Fuck all of those marketing fucks who said AI will be smarter than people.
And at the last but not the very least,
FUCK YOU if you like AI. Fuck off.11
"I gotta go, ttyl".
Is a text sentence that infuriates me a lot when someone texts it in a group chat, which to me sounds like the person is saying,
"Hey I've got important things to do and I've gotta go while you all can keep wasting your life away in front of this phone typing and chatting waaa waaa waaa waaa"..
Like bitch, you wanna go just go. Don't announce it thinking it makes a difference.13
I want to rant.
I don't have anything to be mad at. And that's what's making me mad.
My job's going well. I am making good money, more and more each year. My health's good. I have a good body. I get laid every now and then. I enjoy being single.
And yet it's making me mad and makes me feel empty, for some reason. And every day it's growing in size too.9
I worked with a client, last year, over an app that I didn't think much of, and kept making YouTube videos after our contract ended. Two months ago, I got an idea of making an app for my channel and posted a roadmap video on it.
The client saw that video today, and sent me an email with legal threats, saying I can't do that according to our employment agreement. So, I deleted the videos. All good, no hard feelings. Good ol' Capitalism baby!
But then, I started overthinking about it and it made sense why most high level devs don't post tutorial content anymore and they make videos like "Day In the Life" or "Reality of programming" blah blah.
Maybe they're afraid too that they will get their channel terminated or their life would go to waste?11
I miss the spammers, and being able to openly swear at them. Like that chaosesqueteam guy, ashishtikhile and etc.4
All I want from Instagram reels is cringe creators dancing around producing more cringe,
But no, it has started to show me videos of people getting killed/slaughtered/slashed/shot these days.
I'm not even kidding, everyday it shows me a video of someone getting killed in a car crash, gang wars where someone gets shot in the head, someone splattering their head on the ground falling from a good height.
That too in full 4K quality, no pixelation or censorship.13
MOTHERFUCKING Stripe !!!
Changed their dashboard layout !! Yes, let's move the top navbar to the left and change the whole layout. Oh yeah, and let's make the page less responsive than before.
I seriously don't understand why Stripe had to do this. Their dashboard layout was completely fine and useful but noooo lets change the navbar from the top to the left.
Because of these fucks, I now have to train my muscle memory to get used to this SHITTY ASS layout.
Fuck this. FUCK ALL OF THIS.2
Go on @sandeepbalan, ask us how we're spending this weekend.
I haven't told anyone to fuck off today. Come on, do it.4
