Woo! I've finally bought https://skayo.dev !
Now I have to change the domain everywhere its used..... oof.4
I just found out that the devRant WebApp has a fucking dark theme...
After using the light theme for so god damn long...
Can I have my healthy eyes back?1
Some of you may have noticed:
I was working on a new devRant bot recently.
But this time it doesn't just post a boring random quote everyday, like my @RandomQuote Bot.
This time it actually reacts to the user!
Basically the bot uses https://carbon.now.sh to generate nice little syntax highlighted code.
I just thought this could be handy in some occasions here on devRant.
Especially in the "Questions" category!
Here's the link to the introduction of the bot:
A lot of work went into this bot, so it would be great to hear what you think about it and if you're planning on using it!
Thanks for reading!113
So if you guys had a variable with an "ID" in it, would you write it like this:
or like this:
Little #ad (Not annoying don't worry - it's a cool project)
Just wanted to let y'all know about the awesome project from the Stanford University named Folding@Home!
Basically you donate CPU/GPU power and they use it for researching cancer/alzheimer's/etc.
All you need to do is install some software on your server/computer.
Then the software downloads so called "Work Units" (no big bandwidth required - really small packets) and simulates/calculates some stuff. Afterwards the client send the results back to their server.
This way they are able to create a "supercomputer" that is spread all over the world.
You don't need to pay anything except maybe some increased electricity bills (but you change some settings to use only a little part of the CPU/GPU and therefore create less heat).
Of course the program only uses the CPU/GPU power that's not required by any other software on the computer. I can literally play games while the client is running. No performance decrease.
That's a short intro by me. I can suggest you to visit their website and maybe even start folding by yourself!
Also @cr78, @kescherRant and me are in a team together. If you want to join our team as well just use our Team ID:
Yup, there's this little stats site (https://stats.foldingathome.com) where all teams can compete against each other. Nothing big.
I hope I convinced atleast some of you!
Feel free to ask questions in the comments!
Multi-billion dollar company - don't write fucking changelogs
At least write "Fixed some fucking bugs" or something...
Is it that hard?13
First time in years that I've hugged my best friend. Felt weird and we got really confused looks from the others (class full of boys n shit), but we were so happy because we both got a really good grade on an important test!
Why isn't this a common things men do!? We should all hug more 🤗15
@dfox You complained about the mobile version of GitHub, so maybe this could be interesting for you!7
We had a little "discussion" about same-sex marriage in school today and holy fuck our teacher is very homophobic. I'm still shocked!
First we were normally talking about how it's good that homosexual couples help the kids in orphanages and stuff and after a while, when I was talking to my friend, being distracted, I suddenly noticed that my teacher was telling us a story. I didn't hear exactly what she said but it contained the keywords "next table, gay couple, and leaving". I was like "wait what". Then I payed attention to what she was saying over there. "It's not natural" - okay uhm wow wtf.
Of course my classmates enjoyed the ranting about homosexual people. I know that most of them are very homophobic too. But my teacher?! She was always very lefty when we where talking about politics. But that?
I don't get it. "It's not natural" - fucking hell your fucking expensive iPhone is not natural as well and you are using it everyday. Intolerance is taught. Homosexuality isn't. It's a thing that has been on earth for thousands of years. In the ancient Greece people had sex with everybody. It was normal (It still is). Even in the world of animals there's homosexuality.
So fuck off with your "It's not natural". Even having THE OPINION that homosexuality is unnatural, is more unnatural than homosexuality itself.
On top of that, my "a bit friend", said that parents of gay children are unlucky and how they could put them in a strip club to show them what they are missing. (No joke he said that)
Fucking hell. Homosexuality isn't an illness or something.
Gooosh... Mind your own fucking business... Leave these people alone.
(Sorry for this more political topic... I just needed to rant a bit...)9
Thinking about upgrading my security. Found this interesting project on kickstarter:
It looks pretty promising! Open-Source, no cloud services and Windows Hello support.
What do you guys think about it?
I just want a second opinion before I invest money on it!6
My goal for 2019 is to finally get into game development and release my first game on itch.io!
Also I want to finish a few side-projects, as always...1
Just found out about Yue, a GUI library for Node.js, Lua and C++ (and owners of the "gui" package on npm).
I'll show you what I'm making at the moment soon, so stay tuned!
Anyways I've built the same application in Electron and Yue, here's the comparison of the RAM usage:16
I always wanted to have comments in JSON files, but I just discovered a really good alternative:
"//": "This is a comment",
Looks kinda ugly but it works! No need for special unconventional parsers and shit.29
I'm thinking about creating a central login system for all my websites, where you get redirected to and then login/sign up and then be redirect back. A bit like oAuth.
I have a few websites (and more in development) that use a login system, so that could be really useful to have... Especially because all of them are built from scratch and have their pros and cons. And security wise it's easier to concentrate on one system instead of all of them.
Another benefit is that you save some DB space, if you have lots of users!
And of course the users benefit from it as they'll be able to use all my websites with a single account.
What do you think about it?
I'll still need to do a bit of research on security but other than that, I only see benefits!2
Never saw any collab since the update where they removed the tab...
I thought collabs are there to find collaborators. How should one find collaborators when no one sees your collab?8
If you like to hear music on YouTube, I can recommend you Headset (https://headsetapp.co), a nice little music player for the desktop, that streams directly off YouTube!
I've been using it for a year and it's really useful for while coding. Especially the ability to use the keyboard media keys!
Also there's a German translation since yesterday! (Done by me :D)13
Convinced another fellow developer to join devRant:
He's an indie game developer I met online and I'm helping him to translate his game, "City Game Studio", at the moment.
Check it out! The game is currently in closed beta and it's really awesome!
Got annoyed by the super bright default theme of the Arduino IDE. Decided to make a dark theme for it! Turned out pretty well!
Unfortunately there is no official way of themeing right now, therefore I had to edit some files in the program's directory, which was a pain in the ass to do... (and kinda scary)
I tried to adapt the Material Theme in Sublime Text btw.
Here's a comparison:20
Only company that I really "hate" is Abstergo haha.
All others have their up and downsides I guess....
+ Xbox One
+ iPad Mini (don't know any company that produces such high quality but very small tablets... Therefore I still use my ~6 years old iPad Mini 1. (The battery life is insane! After all this time it still lasts about 6-7 hours!)
- The new iPhones. No innovation. Just making money.
- Smartphones (a few crashes here and there, kinda ugly, explosions!)
+ TVs (webOS is the shit!)
- Heard the Smartphones suck, not sure
And so on....3
