Disadvantages of coding after midnight... Was modifying a makefile for an assignment when suddenly:
$ make clean
> rm -f com/package1/*.class
> rm -f com/package2/*.java
Fun happy story I thought I'd share with you guys:
I applied to a big tech company for a SWE internship. I was talking with one of my classmate that was usually landing big internship
Friend: good look with your interview, I know people that got it and their salary is x $/h
Me: *getting hype for that huge salary and preparing for the interview*
A few week later, after I was told that they did not have a place for me:
Friend: What ? No it wasn't x$/h I told you they pay, it's (x-10) $/h...
I guess I misunderstood him the first time.. anyways x $ was really a high salary for an intern position
But then, I got a call from the company, saying that they found a place for me at another location but they will pay for relocation and the salary is actually (x+5) $/h
Me telling my friend,
Friend: wth this is impossible
*le friend proceed to send his resume to this company*
PS: for other students out there: don't be afraid to send resumes to big company, they are most likely looking for passionate people like you !3
I was learning about packets and I was trying pirni (like Wireshark for iPhone) on my local network. I found a packet of my my roommate about a recipe of fancy a fancy dish
me: *enters the kitchen* Bro you need to see this I got this sick recipe of $fancyDish that I really wanna try
le roommate: THERES NO WAY ARE YOU FREAKING KINDING
I know its wrong to spy on peoples trafic but it was worth it hahaha7
My laptop was not able to boot unless plugged in because of malfunctionning built-in Intel Anti theft technology.
Turns out its deprecated and there is a software available to remove it
So I installed windows to be able to run it but it was not working no matter what.. Turns out it was also deprecated and not supported anymore, so there is no way to remove the faulty anti theft system..
I sent my laptop to ASUS so they could find a way to remove the software and I got the reply "we will have to change the motherboard, it will cost $600"
No way I am paying this much for something that was supposed to be a software problem so I asked them to cancel and send it back
Now I got it back and its not even booting anymore and theres a few screws missing
As a resident of Québec (Canada) who has been training for the Google Code Jam for a while, I was sad to read this while filling my application this morning 😑😔5
Most annoying thing about dual boot;
Windows doing an update, restarts and boot in linux... You come back hours later and update is not done -_-4
I started to code when I got a graphic calculator for high-school. I learned a few command and put them back-to-back, and soon enough I was a pro of ti-basic
As a CS student, where should I invest my time between these options ?
- Get a higher GPA
- Invest in personal project
- Contribute to open source project
- Have a part-time internship during school
- Take time for myself
I would like to have opinions based on your personal experiences !30
