E-Mail from client who couldn't add the WhatsApp link in her website:
"so if I click the link they can directly send the message through WhatsApp?"
Why the fuck would you click your own link to message yourself?
How is it that people can barely speak and still be a business owner?4
Random recruiter viewing my linkedin profile:
"oh, this dude knows C#, I gotta send him EVERY single .net job I have"
Nah, mate, I don't know shit about .net or microsoft development in general, furthermore I actually despise developing for either windows or mac os x.
Also, take 2 extra seconds to check I don't have .NET or Microsoft development in my skills list.
Let's say the app you built costs X.
How much would you make the customer pay for the non-mantained source code as it is at that specific point?
I'm asking because I just found a library which costs 50$ for compiled version and 2000$ for source code7
While developing whatever website that uses Boostrap, my boss always says:
"PLEASE JUST USE BOOTSTRAP CLASSES to make it easier for everyone else to actually operate on that after you're done"
I'm now working on a project started by him and OMG the mess.
The only bootstrap classes he's using are col-* and text-*, the rest is all custom classes like nopad, which is the equivalent of p-0 m-0.
I mean, I might get you use less bytes writing nopad, but be consistent with what you say8
Running brew install PHP
I soon get that brew is installing python and compiling its sources.
The more I work here the clearer it gets:
I just fucking can't make websites anymore.
I totally can't work on graphics, I can't transform a PSD into responsive HTML.
I fucking despise CSS, computers having different resolutions, having different browsers, doing mobile, doing iOS/safari which is always something extra.
I'm tired of not getting the appropriate resources and then people asking me why it just doesn't look the same.
BECAUSE IT'S NOT MY FUCKING JOB! I MAKE STUFF WORK, I DON'T MAKE IT LOOK PRETTY, I HATE PRETTY THINGS12
So I'm in Italy, close to Milan, the biggest infected zone in the whole country.
I'm still going to work as we're in 2 people in the office and we're alone in a 90 square meters office, so no big deal after all.
My city is actually empty right now, so I'm just going from home to work speeding on my motorcycle (no really that speeding, since my motorcycle isn't that powerful)
So nothing really changed actually and I'm still working the same way I did before8
I have to stop this in the first place, but:
Rebuilding something that already exists as a plugin or module.
Why the fuck should I make everything from zero if there's already something working that suits all of my needs?
On the other hand, avoid abusing the usage of plugins in order to avoid demolishing performance4
So I did make a few website, they kinda worked well, but they really were ugly as fuck in terms of UI and UX.
So everytime a company was asking "have you got any website to show"
"NO, ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOT, BUT YOU CAN TRUST ME I'M A REALLY GOOD DEVELOPER"8
So I'm I'll right now and my boss needed to upload an app to Apple store.
So the app was made in unity and it already takes like 5m just to build from unity to xcode.
After that. He could not figure out how to upload the stuff bc there was a missing provisioning profile and then the team information was missing and then other tens of stuff.
Now android does not have this problem at all, like why is iOS so complicated? Fuck Apple1
Sometimes I wish I had a manager to rant about.
Not having a manager means the whole fault is mine :(6
So my company was building a software to allow users to use a screen without the screen being touch itself.
It was made using a camera above the screen and then with openCV detect where the hand was.
Anyway I had to test it on the place.
And the place was a factory where they did produce pipes.
It's the biggest company in my city, and yet I was there, in the break room, coding a raspberry in winter in a factory.
The only source of heat was the fire used to melt the metal
That was literally awesome2
>Why is chrome making my computer turn off all of a sudden?
<Boss, you have a quite old iMac with fully updated chrome, which is known to eat RAM. PLus, you've been using that computer as a donkey to do video editing, even tho it's not made for that (looking at the stats), and you have your home folder on an external hard drive, plus like 10 other apps always active, including premiere, illustrator, airmail (with 12k emails always loaded smh), slack on 2 workspaces and at LEAST 12 chrome tabs on some of the heaviest websites
>Mmh... yeah you're right, I'm kinda asking for it2
A friend of mine and I are about to open a company and we're hiring a developer to develop websites, no specific needs, it literally just have to work.
We found this guy, who develops goodlooking websites, but isn't really a developer, meaning that he just uses visual composers. (which doesn't differ too much from what we want).
Well this guy kinda loves us because we're actual developers who know how to code "properly".
It's the first time someone likes me just bc I'm a developer and I'm already superhappy!
Hope it will get good soon enough!
Can someone please explain me why the fuck the following doesn't work in C#?
Dictionary<string,object> mex=Json.Deserialize(data.ToString())as Dictionary<string,object>;
if(mex.ContainsKey("sessionId") && mex["sessionId"].ToString()!=tkn.GetSessionID())
the previous condition is NEVER true, but the following:
Dictionary<string,object> mex=Json.Deserialize(data.ToString())as Dictionary<string,object>;
if(mex.ContainsKey("sessionId") && mex["sessionId"]!=tkn.GetSessionID())
will actually work as expected.
tkn.GetSessionID() returns a string, of course
and mex["sessionId"] is always an object that contains a string in form of a number, like 152, 552, 6246 and so on and no, it won't ever contain any blank or other character
Fuck this fucking shit from C#8
Dear fucking MicroSoft,
I really like the C# language, but the default System types have some little fucks up.
Like, if the DateTime.ToString() accepts "HH" to display hours with leading 0, WHY THE FUCK DOESN'T TimeSpan.ToString()?
As of my previous posts, I wanted to share with you my latest app.
It allows to read feeds from wordpress websites without having to deal with banners, ads, weird fonts and so on.
It's ugly as fuck as it still uses the standard ionic/angular style, but it works, and that's what matters.
Of course it's just for Android, as I really don't want to pay for an app store developer account.
Here the link:
Any suggestion or comment is really appreciated and I thank you in advance for any download, rating, usage or whatever feedback.
Thank you very much.3
So I'm making a very simple ionic app that creates a highly customizable feed from different wordpress-based websites of user's choice.
Can you please spam this post with wordpress websites? Just to add some "default" websites to the user8
Here some more information to despise Apple.
In the past few weeks I keep having a problem making the iMac connect to whatever website/host, so I had to rerun whatever I had to do: fetching from github, push to github, connecting to a LAN server, pinging to know to IP, accessing a webpage and so on.
Luckily enough, browsers tend to request again if an error occurs.
At my job, I upload app files to servers, like GooglePlay and AppStoreConnect.
For those who don't know, Google makes you upload the app through the browser (among other ways) while Apple requires you to upload your app either through XCode. No other possible ways.
Whenever XCode requires an update, the authentication is required, but the authentication server cannot be reached for at least 5-6 tries.
Then I have to upload the app and just to be ready to hit the "upload button" it takes like 3-4 minutes, which might be completely useless if a network error occurs.
How hard is it to make your fucking app-loader to try again at least a few times?7
>building the same app once again because of a bug
>look in the unity editor settings for android
>google it, find it might be useful to minify, obfuscate code and other stuff
>try to minify the shit of the app
>original app was 25.1MB
>minified app is 24.6MB
>minified app using "Gradle (Experimental)" is 24.5MB3
I took like 3 years to my company to get this huge-ass client to ask us to remake their website (the client is already our client for other purposes).
The old website was hosted on their local machine, behind a proxy that was there for other 30 website servers.
The old website took like 30-40 seconds to load on a browser and had a google score of 3-6/100.
We made the new website in wordpress, since it was basically a blog and managed all of the older links to redirect to the new pages so that SEO wouldn't get affected.
We then asked the previous developers to let their domain redirect to the new one (it was like example.com => ex.example.com and now it's just example.com, so we needed them to make ex.example.com redirect to example.com).
What they did was making a redirection to the 404 page of the new website, making everything go to fuck itself.
Damn this might be the first time I despise other developers, but this move was fucking awful.
I mean, I get it, we stole your big client, but it's not our fault if we made the google score go up to 90/100 in a week just by changing server and CMS.13
I fucking despise making whatever website that needs to send emails.
The final user won't probably receive the emails bc of spam, the customer wont like this and blame me or the company I work for, but never actually PAY for an email service to send emails.
And almost nothing works with the old-ass domains here in Italy, but people will still use those old-as-fuck emails just because they can't make a new one on gmail or outlook.3
Not really a rant, but:
Me, programming in unity using C#: well if I add that library, My life will get a little bit easier, but the final APK will be 2MB heavier because of it.
WebDev who never used compiled programming languages: can't you just minify it?
Made a game, it was like tetris but you had to connect at least 3 blocks of the same colour.
I worked on it for like a month, about 50h overall, and it was downloaded by 10-11 people all over the world and then removed after like an year or so for no real reason.
I then stopped making games.
I was too depressed by the whole thing3
Developing an app in Unity, gotta add some icons, my boss tells me unironically:
- "hey, use font-awesome!"
Yeah, right, like I can use HTML tags into unity or go check the specific code for the specific symbol, are you out of your mind?8
So once upon a time I had this dream while I was sleeping:
I was programming this videogame while I was inside of it.
It was something like VR where I had a tron-like world and I was the god in there, I was able to make and destroy anything as I pleased.
What I did was making a sort of challenge where you had to destroy someone else's kingdom by accessing it via FTP and then just destroy the useful files to kill defences and then become an actual king of that place.
Once awake I started thinking of making this whole thing into an actual game, but then I started reading the documentation for FTP connection in C# (I was thinking about using Unity) and literally stopped thinking about making it.2
Should I be ashamed?
I hardly ever use "i" as a counter in for loops
I most likely use "k" and "j"; "i" stands for "index"25
I swear I NEVER hated PHP before, but after seeing this shit, I just can't love it anymore, I feel betrayed
I mean, WTF? Just bc I'm using the variable as a reference in the NEXT loop the LAST element changes? What even is the fucking reason?
Yeah, I read the answer on StackOverflow, but seriously...
