Client: This new feature is not working on Internet Explorer.
Me: Do you have enough oxygen in the cave you are living in?7
TL: Why the hell you require a month to integrate this engine?
Me: It will take that much time, can't help it.
TL: it can be done within a week.
Me: Then you do it.
TL: Ok I will show how it's done in a week.
Me: What's the status on that integration?
TL: Oh yeah about that, you have to carry it ahead, I have some monitoring to do.
Me: Ok, give me the repository access, I will carry it ahead.
ME OPENS REPOSITORY.
There's only a new controller file with nothing it.5
Request: Stackoverflow-like theme for devRant so I can chill and read rants on work while the rest of my colleagues believe I'm working/ investigating a bug
I've noticed a weird bug with the Google Assistant swapping the scores when you ask it about sports.
Check comments for what I mean5
A Decrementing loop that compares against a zero is faster (even though insignificant on current hardwares)
than an Incrementing loop that compares against a constant/variable.
for( i = num; i != 0; i -- )
is faster than
for( i = 0; i != num; i ++ )
The difference shows up significantly on resource constrained hardwares such as 8-bit microcontrollers.
More details in comment.45
Dude I want to ask you , It's possible for me to call myself as a software engineer if I always got a cancer when I try to create HTML template ? I'm suck as fuck on front-end, I can't even create a single HTML template even if you give me help with css framework. I don't know what to do with HTML and CSS, they're totally fucked up my life.14
First they came for the atheists, and I didn't speak out - because I'm not an atheist
Then they came for the university teachers, and I didn't speak out - because I don't like universities
Then they came for the gamers, and I didn't speak out - because I don't play videogames
Then they came for Open Source and I didn't speak out - because "anyone can fork it"
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak out for me
I know I butchered the poem and I'm not comparing our social situation to the Holocaust (obviously), but I think it kind of illustrates that silence and gradually giving up ideals like justice and meritocracy can end up badly.
I also encourage you to read the actual poem it's pretty nice and food for thought.5
What profession would you say is most like software development? I'd love to be able to give people an idea of what I do, without making it sound like witchcraft...10
Can anyone show me a good place to learn how to use vim?
Been googling and found nothing that's actually understandable19
Recruiter: how many years of experience do you have?

Me : ???? No thanks
Recruiter: they’ll never know ... you can tell them later
Me : ....2
You know the Microsoft guy who installed Chrome because Edge crashed.
Don't judge him that much!
The guys at Google use Microsoft's VSCode for their Firebase. Also they use Typescript.
Our company (if any) shouldn't determine the tools we use. I haven't used Edge, but they recently added full Css Grid support. I'm gonna give it a try for a week or two...14
So, someone submitted a 'bug' to Mozilla.
As some of you may know, in the next year, the new mass surveillance law in the Netherlands is going into effect.
Another fun fact is that the dutch security agencies/government have their own CA (Certificate Authority) for SSL/TLS certificates.
The new law says that the AIVD (dutch NSA/GCHQ equivilant) is allowed to hack into systems through obtained certificates and also that they're allowed to INTERCEPT TRAFFIC THROUGH OBTAINED PRIVATE SSL/TLS KEYS.
So someone actually had the fucking balls to submit a fucking issue to Mozilla saying that the Dutch State certs shouldn't be accepted anymore when the new mass surveillance law gets into place.
This person deservers a fucking medal if you ask me.71
So... I learnt a couple things today about C++ language which I didn’t know before...
1. float var = 5.9;
std::cout << ( var == 5.9 );
// shows 0 (false) coz of float and double thing... apparently, 5.9 isn’t automatically converted to float when compared to one 🤔
2. arr[ i ] == i[ arr ]
Well... I guess I now like my college 1% more from the previous % whatever that was 😊☺️32
Went to hackathon
Earlier Thinking :- C language is father of all
Now :- Python is Godfather LOL ☺☺☺7

Short story time.
The last girl I dated was a proper geek. Like the kind of geek another geek wants. So one fine day she told me that she was making a greeting card for me. I was happy. After a few weeks she gave me the card and it was really cute. I loved it.
I reached home and received an email from her with a link in it. It was the link to a website she had made where each message from the card was deciphered to the real message.
That wasn't all. She didn't want the entire thing to be too easy. So the deciphered messages were password protected and I had to guess it.21
Boss walked towards his office asking a coworker to do something.
Coworker replied that he'd like to but only the boss has the login codes or something like that.
Boss: ah right *walks to coworkers table* let me enter that stuff *starts typing*
Coworker: Maybe I'm running a keylogger 😏
Me: *exchanging funny eye contact with coworker* yeah maybe he is.... 😏
Boss: *looking back and forth at both our faces suspiciously*
*three of us laughing*

Hot girl: hey sexy, you're looking fine today
> I acknowledge that
Client: hey could you add x?
Sibling: you're adopted
> I acknowledge that
Windows: I will update
> I will take that into consideration
trogus: I will make a line of debugging ducks with capes with their respective language on it
dfox: I acknowledge that
Bus driver: sir please wake up the busses are closed
> I acknowledge that *sleeps*
Python: wrong amount of tabs/spaces
> I acknowledge that *uninstalls python*
devRant: you are running out of characters for this rant
> I ackno12
What the hell is "4k mAh battery"? Come on guys, you know what that little 'm' means, please tell me you do.
You wouldn't say "4k miligrams". You wouldn't say "4k milliseconds". You wouldn't say "4k milliliters". So don't use "4k miliampere hours". It's dumb.
Just to be sure - everyone, repeat with me:
👏 0.000004 👏 MAh 👏 eqals
👏 0.004👏 kAh 👏 eqals
👏 4 👏 Ah 👏 eqals
👏 4000 👏 mAh 👏 eqals
👏 4000000 👏 nAh 👏
Thank for giving me 5k ms of your attention.20
Client: Is your code functional?
Dev: Well, it's not. It's imperative. Object oriented and a bit procedural.
Client: Well, make it functional
Dev: [learning haskell]8
