First thing Monday morning, get a group text about our upcoming release. Boss says there's nothing important, nothing to release, we can maybe skip.
I just busted my ass last week implementing things that need to be released this week. Good to know the rest of my team have been doing nothing productive for the last month.
I just realized the total size of the code we write in our lifetime is smaller than a video or movie that we can finish watching in a hour or 2....9
Today I went ALL IN
And also brought 3 lotto tickets
I just want financial freedom but the bills are just do expensive....11
Hm... Its sorta nice after another tiring day but not really feel I have to do something productive tonight... Since I already did something this morning. Anything else is now ++... And I don't feel as guilty watching TV/Just relaxing
What time do you get up on work days? I'm starting to think I should have me time in morning (reading, learning, coding my own things) before going to work.
I've think I've come the the conclusion that this job/team is sorta chaotic and tedious and there's no skill growth. Not learning anything new. Usually just something broken, integrate some new feature, build something that I've already built before but differently for this specific case. Nothing fun or challenging, or new.
And also tired of trying to be a "role model", make things right. I tend to like to keep things orderly, documented, well tested and clean but everyone else seems to just bulldoze their way to get whatever they need, leaving a mess behind... It's been like 2yrs already but the technical debt seems to be growing not shrinking...20
They fucking created a VM from the wrong machine even though I specifically told them the IP of the correct one over a month ago....
So I guess first day back from vacation, I'm doing a lot of yelling at people that aren't in...
I work remotely from the rest of my team and I just came back from a 1 week vacation. Logged in this morning and no one else was online...
My first thought was WTF happened... did something blow up do bad they all gelot fired???
Turns out today is a holiday for them. So now I've a whole day of peace and quiet to figure out what the hell in supposed to be doing again.
I don't scream because my teams are in a different country and we communicate by IM and email.
I do write long ranting/passive-aggressive emails or type really quick replies when I'm pissed though. .
An example of the latter:
Boss: I need you to make a "quick" fix...
Me: hmm ok sounds like we should implement it like ...
Boss: I was thinking something like this... since it's a temp fix
Need: (typing faster) why is it a temp fix... why not builds it properly so it can be reused
Boss: but that takes time, this is quicker
Me: it's bad design because ... (Typing so fast I'm making typos)... Anyway I can do it. This is better...
Boss: ... ok fine... if you can finish it before deadline6
True or false? You know your waiter is making a lot, and your probably being overcharged, when you see her wearing an iWatch.20
The only way to tell at a glance is the Java annotations...
Must remember to go to work tomorrow...
But the thought of the pile of emails and issues and work waiting to greet me is beginning to make my head hurt...1
I found a use for my OPO now!
Spent all morning trying to figure out why my PC emulator created from AVD is lagging. Checked HAXM is installed and running but still slow.
So now my OP1 is the dev phone, has a new home on my desk connected to my PC2
TLDR: Decision making is hard...
Get up at 7am, weather looks crappy but need go to the Drs today in NYC.
Original plan was to spend the morning in the park catching up on my reading list. Don't really want to goto the park now but lunch is still good? (Appt at 4pm, was only one left)
Walk into train station, pay for ticket. Get email from Drs saying he's sick...
Oh good... Except I already paid for the ticket.
Decide it's not worth it since weather is crap.
Walk out the station and... it's sunny... Fck...
Now what.... I can either go home and code or go shopping locally and eat out.
Currently decisions these and well shopping and eating out are also hard decisions...
How is it that after restarting... and updating Windows I go from 10GB free (no idea how it got so low) to 39GB free... and apparently that doesn't include the 27GB that Windows.old takes up?
And why does it thinking deleting all files in Downloads is cleanup...6
Hm... Apparently I've been doing TDD all along... it's just that I don't save the tests in a seperate project.
I just keep editing Main() to test whatever i'm working on (each class).
Also the NJTransit site is sneaky as ****. It seems the devs know a bit about how to prevent site scraping by checking Headers and Client information...
Took all afternoon to get this test to pass....
it works in Chrome but not in my code... and even after I spoofed all the headers... including GZIP.... it wouldn't work for multiple requests...
I need to create a new WebClient for each request.... no idea how it knows the difference or why it cares... maybe it's a WebClient bug...
And this is only the test app. Originally was supposed to be built in React Native but that has it's own problems...
Books are too old, the examples don't work with the latest...
But I guess this also has a upside... learn TDD and React rather than just React... hopefully can finish this week...
I'm actually on vacation... yea... i still code like a work day... 10AM - 8PM....2
I wonder what would happen if I replied to recruiters that spam my email with generic irrelevant roles with this:
Thank you for spamming. Your address has now been forwarded to a spambot.7
So reinstalled to learn React Native... and React as well while I'm at it. Can that be done or I would learn React and build a webapp with it first? (I don't want to build a webapp though...)
Also I want to target Android but seems all books target iOS... Are there any books for Android?
I'm just following the Facebook GitHub now.15
WTF.... did the latest Windows 10 update just screw up Visual Studios 2017....
XAML Designer won't load.... so much for my plans to code....3
Apparently my boss started his vacation today. I'm trying to finish all open projects so I can start my vacation on Monday
Sent email to my parents this morning telling them to contact me by email since the Pie update broke my One Plus 6 (when I tried to reroot it but got a bootloop and restoring from TWRP screwed it up even more somehow) so restoring it.
First response from my dad: you can use my spare S9...
Yes he has a spare because he got it in a 2 for 1 deal... but I'm thinking uhhh..... It's not like I physically dropped the phone and cracked the screen... (like he did to his late 2 phones)... I'm 99% sure I can restore somehow... Like I did last time (a few months ago)7
We have a project with source==target==1.7 in the compile plugin.
But on our servers we actually run it using 1.8 JVM. Is there any reason why we can't see it to compile with 1.8?
Or is it like the Windows backwards compatibility options?
Oh this is fun... PSA: do not upgraade to Android Pie if you want root....
Trying to recover again now that after flashing Magisk i get a boot loop....14
Best part of living alone... lip syncing ktv (karaoke) and dancing like no one's watching.
Oh Happy Moon Festival2
I just disabled 2 recommendation notifications from Google Map and Photos...
My first thought is Google is turning into Facebook. My next read Google knows too much... But what can I do...
It's also very convenient... when it's not data mining the data it stores...
