!Dev but reading this is just depressing along with the recent NATO news....
TLDR: the party is over, it long has been and unless your priveliged or old already, we're all screwed.
-Hard work != Success
-Climate change will end us all
Me extrapolating solutions:
-Restart the world again/wipe out civilization (sorta like Dr. Stone)
-Just don't give a fck, accept Extinction and not care about the future generations30
I cancelled prime a few months ago so when I was doing BF shopping on Amazon yesterday, delivery is now 1wk instead of 2-days.
And shipping apparently is $9 if you don't meet the $25 minimum and manually select free shipping; I remember it was $6 before...
So a few thoughts I had:
1. Amazon really must need the Prime memberships to cover all the shipping costs since it is now a pain in the ass to get free shipping on the checkout page.
2. Americans really want instant gratification? Waiting a week is that painful?
In contrast, stuff from China take about a month but are much cheaper
3. The only thing that's worth buying via Amazon now is electronics and stuff that are fragile... And food that's on sale because they have to uphold quality
4. Lucky for me, I get 1 week shipping, I have more time to cancel orders... Which is what I actually did9
Had a production issue last night where db hung so today whole team was investigating.
I checked the graphs and noticed a huge spike in inserts during a few hours. Normally it's distributed evenly through the day.
Emailed team with screenshots and also mentioned it to someone but then forgot to follow up... I assumed they were looking into it (I don't work in the same office as them).
Someone just logged in and notice the same thing happening right now... which made me remember.
So I asked him, did you see my email?
Also got another guy doing a sort of code review on a util app I wrote that deletes certain records from our db and why I'm not just using SQL. I tools him the most obvious way doesn't work I tried but he won't believe me so let him do try it himself.
Anyway, these few days just feels like "why doesn't anyone listen to me?" ... and just feeling overqualified and sort of not part of the team again....3
Is dilbert.com down/get hacked or did my IP get blacklisted?
1st time, I went today, all the comic strips were replaced with ads.
2nd, the site just hung in Chrome
After I turned on my VPN, the site was accessible...7
My life centered around coding... Not so much these few years though.
So that's around 15 years? But I just don't feel motivated or interested in doing anything new.... Unless I get paid...
Follow up sorta...
So I got pulled into a support issue on a day off. Some system was facing timeouts on our servers so had to investigate.
Over the weekend as part of the release, I released the ELK stack I built and today I used that to help.
Pretty much immediately pinpointed which machine was hanging though still had to investigate and confirm so split between KQL and checking the server logs.
One thing I've always griped about is how no one created schema docs for it mongo collections so can't easily figure out what they do or your to get the document needed.
Well guess it's my turn.... Because only I know the schema :)
BOSS allowed a last minute change that apparently was barely tested to be merged right before the last release of the year...
Me: ... I told you so....1
1. Broadcast (free) TV will consist 100% of live programming
2. All series will be bought and available on streaming services like Amazon, Netflix, Disney+
3. Cable channels or TV episodes can be bought individually (iTunes, Google Videos, etc), basically they will be their own streaming service (it actually that already exists, IPTV? just not in the US?)
Everyone will use DVRs to record TV shows so can skip all advertisements
Therefore only way to get viewers eyeballs for ads is live programming where you need to cast votes which affect the outcomes (supposedly)
Streaming services obviously don't have this problem and don't need to run ads since there's a monthly subscription fee that more then covers cost.2
Is there some sort of Query Builder for ElasticSearch?
I have ELK setup and in Kibana can generate all the aggregation visualizations but now I want the data to be usable in a program so it can generate reports like who are our top users.
But the aggregation queries seem to be very verbose... not sure how anyone can generate or understand it by hand vs telling Kibana I want a chart with X and Y axes using these terms.
IDeally I'd like to have Kibana then tell me what's the actual JSON/Elastic query it used to generate that but can't seem to find something like that.1
Just upgraded to OxygenOS 10..... and realized it don't have Live Captions.... which is the only reason I upgraded....
I should've just kept LineageOS....3
Sorry yesterday installing LineageOS because wanted to Android 10 and got tired of OxygenOS replacing recovery and root every time it updates...
The build failed and bricked my phone so installed Lineage Pie.... so same as before...
Then found out today there an app that will indeed OxygenOS 10 and for all future updates can auto install and keep root....
So now reinstalling OxygenOs...7
Why are these styluses so cheap ($.44 )
Yet the S Pen is like $30? I'm just looking for a still that works with my OP6. Am I missing something?2
What HTTP Header should be used to send an App identifier to a REST/micro-service
I remember reading about this a long time ago and want to suggest it again to my boss so it's easier to identify what specific apps making calls to our APIs3
If you watch a 30fps video at 2x, is it the same as watching it at 60fps?
I usually watch anime (all videos) at 2x on my phone but when I watch it at regular speed it feels stuttery now but not sure if 2x is the same or it just uses frameskipping. Not sure how that works wither but wouldn't that cause more stutter?11
Does nordvpn work in China? I just signed up because it said its speeds are fast and my Windscribe VPN has been show and unstable for the last few days... But works
Afterwards I couldn't connect to any of the servers in Android though...11
Don't quite get this.
There's some bug where u run sudo -u#-1 cmd, it lets you run it as root.
But then it says only if you have permission to do so.
Does that just mean "run sudo" or something else?
I'm thinking sudo -u#-1 /bin/bash would basically give anyone root?
It seems Java on Linux runs slower than Windows... Same code takes about 2x longer to run. And well this code is for a batch job...
Does anyone have experience with JVM tuning/optimization or can confirm/disprove this is the case?23
I don't know if it's age, having too many other things I can/need do, not having any more major personal tech itches to scratch, or just seeing no point in learning any new tech unless I need it for work... But I've just been coding less personally... And maybe even at work...
I feel like in terms of being a dev, there's nothing else I want anymore, nothing I want to learn unless I actually need it...
I haven't done any major personal projects in maybe the last year or more (although I have made small tweaks to a few of my existing ones).
And well I don't care anymore about React, Angular, or the latest JS frameworks or have any interested with Cloud or Docker....
And as long as I have a decent job, even though it's pretty boring and not much growth.... I don't care and no longer bother trying to get a better one...
Wondering if anyone else feels like they have peaked or just lost the drive and motivation to get better?
I don't know maybe it's just work... Ok my team I think I'm probably the best and will I'm tired of telling other people what they should do.... And maybe also tired of looking for or chasing "opportunities" that don't seem to lead to anything.... Except wasted time and effort?11
Just had a memory popup about my uni days about 5 years ago. I was in my Junior year in business school and was doing a "consulting" project involving the whole Class (200 students). Groups of 4 were assigned an international company in either Europe, Asia, or South America. We'd visit them (as well as do some sightseeing) and learn about them (performance, market positions, products) during Spring Break and come up with a real proposal. We would then compete with other teams, and the winning pitchs for each would be presented in the school auditorium in front the entire class.
Our team didn't get that far but that's not the point. We did win the individual classroom competition. Our company was Deutsche Telekom (owner of T-Mobile).
This was in 2010, when the iPhone/smart-phones started to become mainstream... And our team's idea was location-based advertising.
Looking back, we basically predicted the future... though we got the wrong industry...
It's also sort of funny though because I remember the main reason we came up with the idea was to be different.
All other teams just went with some expansion plan to a neighboring country or cutting costs.... pure MBA/business plan. But I guess I was being a natural techie so thought of a tech idea instead.
We had a meeting with our professor after he picked us and he told us he had a history of spotting future hits. We were like "hm... ok... let's give it a shot... we definitely got an A!" but at that point I was sort of skeptical if this would actually work in real-life (the basic idea was they would sell ads to local businesses and if you were nearby, you would get a text message with an offer).
But guess he was pretty right... we just needed to have Google or Facebook to have been our company... though Groupon or Yelp works too... basically a tech company with larger scale rather than a mobile carrier...1
I just uninstalled Anaconda Python because it takes up about 8GB... and I don't remember the last time I used it...
That being said I did sort of use Python last week at work... though even that's rare, just that I had a project used to analyze logs I wrote over a year ago... that needed to be used.12
What's a good book to learn ELK hands-on?
I have an instance set up and working but want to need some more advanced features? like mapping, index templates, querying remotely for aggregations.
The Elastic docs feel very high level and maybe assumes u can read their minds... A lot of snippets I just go "uhm.. where do I put this in the file, which file?"4
Today at work I accidentally redeployed our ELK instance without taking a backup of all of Kibana's saved objects...
I didn't realize Elastic stores all indexes including the Kibana's in it's app folder by default.
Tomorrow will be fun.... I can't decide what to do first... Recreating all the charts and tables from memory... Or fixing the deployment script to change the data dir path...2
So it turns out the site my app scrapes for those NSFW pictures actually scrapes another site.
Now it just seems to mirror that site like a proxy though doesn't work well... pictures not loading, links not working.
But then at the bottom there's like a Copyright tag which shows the other site's name.
I wonder if perhaps he got tired of playing cat and mouse with me and just said ah screw it... I give up, here's the source, go scrape them.13
