Sometimes I wonder how large the gap between tech savvy n normal is.
All those stories about too much time on social media...
and also not knowing why you should get a tempered glass screen protector.... Even if you're screen is reinforced with Gorilla Glass...17
Is there any program that can be used to cut out parts of a video file without re-encoding.
The way I'm thinking is if you already have a video file, you should be able to just copy the data from 1 file to another like a file splitter.4
I just realized this is the dumbest marketing stunt McDonald's can come up with
The card is actually a phone case with your name etched into it.
1. How do I use it if I'm ordering online?
2. Why is the prize meant to encourage mobile ordering a physical card to use in stores?
3. So every time the winner takes out their phone, s/he is just asking to get mugged or have it stolen?3
Our team uses story format titles for JIRAS like As a ..., I want...
But in our git repo, a lot of people create branches using the same name:
And I'm always like why the fuck can't you take 5s to name your branches more descriptively? I usually name mines using some keywords from the Jira Title
But wondering now what do you all think/do?2
I hate $ .99.... spent all morning trying to figure out how to get free shipping.
Tried looking for a filler item but nothing good. Then looked at some funko-pop figures but not that interested... and still cost $10
Finally just went asked them to waive it... but still... that took almost an hour...
And now back to regularly scheduled programming... with 1hr less sleep....oh n it's a Monday...
Can you overdose on strong coffee? I feel sort of lightheaded on and off when walking and heart feels like it's beating a lot... after drinking a large cup this afternoon...12
Live chat with Verizon support online
Wait in line for 30mins finally get an agent
But then she doesn't respond
I take a angry screen shot of the chat and send it to Verizon's Twitter
Get a quick response and the agent replies.
Me: I want renew/upgrade my services at the discount price
Agent: not possible. Contact regular support number to discuss
Me: what if I cancel and sign up again
Her: OK here's the direct number to our retention hotline2
We need to capture ips on our internal Network in order to figure out who is actually calling our apis because we will be meeting a breaking change so need to melee sure they support.
But in order to have IP capturing, we need a be Production Issue ticket...
So to prevent crashing downstream system, we need to crash their systems... 🤔🤔🤔🤔1
News says FB took a huge plunge and Zuckerburg lost $15 billion in 1 day and this is the result of all the privacy breaches
I'm looking at the price charts and even from my memory, it's still higher than when I checked last time.
Am I missing something or it seems news these days and the headline journalists are just monkeys finding the quickest way to get attention and some money? And reporting things out of context... Too me it just looks like a market correction... Just like bitcoins...5
At NYU doctor's office that forces me to register a temp account to use their WiFi.
I get an email saying my medical records have changed so I try logging into the site to check.
Site can't be accessed on the network..,1
The OP6 camera app is actually good?
Just went through the latest batch of photos I took. I used the default Camera app for half (no RAWs) and OpenCamera for the other.
They were on different days and weather but I just went thru the Camera JPGs and couldn't find any that I would want to mentally correct...1
Updating Oxygen OS....
1. WARNING: You will lose root.... OK
2. Fastboot TWRP
3, Install TWRP
4. Flash Magisk
6. Reinstall xposed from Magisk Installer
10. Re-enable Gravitybox in xposed
All done... did i do something wrong?11
Apparently someone has already tried this.... devRant wouldn't let me post after so much work and even crashing... Twice....12
I'm going to replace Designer with Architect.
Every single day: WHAT MONKEY DECIDED TO BUILD THIS SYSTEM THAT WE NOW HAVE TO CONTINUE DEVELOPING?
HOW THE FUCK DID HE THINK TO SCALE BY BUILDING A SYSTEM THAT TYING EVERYTHING TO A SINGLE DB?2
For those of you that had to answer a lot of "whats the Big O of ..." questions to get a job, how often did you need to use Big O analysis to actually do the work?3
If I'm not coding, I can't wait for lunch or too leave.
If I am, time becomes irrelevant me
It's 4pm now... Just finished coding... Time to take a lunch break...
Anyone else do this?6
I created a WPF User Control similar I guess to the Android GridLayout.
It just automatically places a list of Controls into the next available cell... in a inner Grid control...
But what is so bad about this that it wasn't built into WPF in the first place? And is there actually a full implementation?
I Googled before writing this but don't think I found any existing ones.
Is it just me or is the Collab section gone from the Bar.
Seems to view Collabs now, need to uncheck all other categories which is a bit annoying?10
Not really a fight but another Dev was telling me how I should implement things and to keep the code clean and clear/not spaghetti.
In the back of my mind I'm going yeah... I know what I'm doing... probably better than you.
I'm usually the guy telling other ppl to clean up their shit..or forced to dig thru it when their stuff blows up in production.
Anyway I'm going to add him to code review and maybe email the whole team... and then go, now this is how I want our code to look.11
Boss tells me to cleanup prod drives deleting anything older than a year.
So I find a script for that and run it after making sure works.
Told them it's done and freed up 20% but now they've gone silent.... 🤔🤔🤔🤔😥😥😥😥😥😟😟😟😟😟😟😟😟6
Great way to start a developer's day: Turn getting to the office a sudden problem with unexpected platform and services changes.
And only realizing after getting on the train. I had to pull up a mental map of the stations and connections. And guess the probability the right train was in service at the station...
How do I resolve this conflict of interest?
TLDR: I want to go out for exercise/health. But I also need an immediate goal. So when I go out, I will always end up buying some junk food.
It's such a nice day today. Let's go for a walk, get out the house and some exercise because I also love deals.
Hmm… where should I go? (Need a motivation)
I know let's go shopping! (Only reason to leave the house)
Takes a walk to Duane Reade (supermarket) 10 mins away.
It’s so hot/I want a reward! I'm out already why not get a treat… let's see I can get a large Iced Coffee for $1 (or some other deal) at McDonalds (which is pretty much next door now that I'm here).
I mean isn't that a great deal! I could make coffee myself but only the KCup and well they wouldn't be cold. I want it cold now, not in an hour… (i probably won't when want it then). So that dollar is just for the coldness mostly and i guess the service cost.
Also since I'm here already, i save the food delivery fees (this also applies whenever I order for pickup: I save so much on the delivery costs and I get exercise too!)
Healthwise and financially, this negates any benefit of going out and probably would've been better had I not gone out and just ate the plain salad at home.5
So I hit my OPO back since my bro didn't want it.
And I just finished flashing Lineage 15.1 so basically it runs a better version of Android 8.1 than my OP6.
And right now, it is fcking smooth and fast...
How do I solve this board without guessing? Always get stuck on these and what the pattern to look for is.13
So I gave my younger brother my OnePlus One since he is now using an even older Google Nexus and don't care much for phones. The camera is slightly better basically.
Asked him to test drive it:
Me: so did you set it up yet?
B: nope, what's the rush?
Me: well you see it's running a custom OS (Lineage) as it technically doesn't support it. You need to test drive it and make sure it works with your SIM? May need to change some configs
B: sounds like a pain, should I just get a new phone?
Me: ... yes probably...
He's a just graduated CS major that doesn't like tinkering with tech...
(Well can I have it back then so I can play around with it?)9
