About'99 baby King of microoptimizations. Fullstack developer before knowing what fullstack developer meant. Coded REST APIs before knowing what REST APIs were. 30% of my work is being a techno-maid. (yeah this is a rip-off)

Learn to program on your own BEFORE doing formal studies, or chances are you'll get either annoyed && (bored || frustrated).
Maybe just spam for some.
@Creep , here it is, the latest version of my desktop pets project. This has the main software and 2 examples, JDancing Flowey and JNeko.
All you need is there, enjoy.5
Rewriting all my MIT App Inventor apps that use online resources to make them use the new dictionaries instead of lists of pairs for the JSON responses. Super fun.2
Fuck mi ISP, really, fuck it.
It left the whole city without internet access for 3 days, and it's service is HORRIBLE.
Not only that, they don't expand the network they have and we are stuck with 5mbps! (3, effectively).
Imagine trying to download a file, while 2 other people are watching YouTube, and 2 other devices are PLAYING NETFLIX. OF COURSE IT WILL STOP WORKING.
I COULDN'T EVEN POST A RANT WITH AN IMAGE (it'd stuck loading for minutes).
I am trying to get a new ISP and this one will be wire to my personal PC, fuck them. However, as a house in the suburbs of a small satellite city, it's hard to get a decent new service.7
I hate it when people think I mistake them in a conversation.
Makes me think they are treating me like a fool or a noob.
I really hate it.13
I know selectors like these shouldn't exist, but double escaping? Hell no! I didn't even know it was a thing! I wonder what's the highest level of n escaping there is out there.6
Windows has just asked me the password to my Microsoft account to fucking access my computer.
... Do you mean that if I didn't have Internet access I couldn't use my won fucking computer? WTFF!??25
I've been looking for the source of the bug for 4 hours at least.
Tipical, it was an i I wrote for a j.
I wrote yesterday.
I'm angry, but very happy because it was the only thing left. ☺️3
Super selfish and targeted question:
Favourite singular VSCode extension?
Not the ones everyone has / are very common, something you have that most might not, be it because it's functionality is not very useful, because it's not very known, etc...4
Doesn't it bother anyone else that replies arrive as 2 notifications? Mention + one more comment on a rant you commented on.
It's no big deal but it's ugly.5
Made by me, the inspiration came after I actually almost wrote a console.log while debugging, it had been a long time since I last touched Java.7
A crowded bus, going to school, on a WhatsApp group that's only me and I use it to keep stuff.
It was quite uncomfortable.1
In PHP, constants can only be of simple data types like strings or floats.
You can't make a database connection a constant because it's not a simple data type.
That makes the only way of accessing complex "constants" within functions using the keyword global... which is not encouraged and forces you to make the database connection global (that may not be convenient in some software patterns).
The last option is passing the database connection as a parameter (either to the function or to the constructor of the instance whose methods will use the connection)... which would be good if I didn't want to go full OO. Because it's a pain to do so.
So all in all, constants are not well supported by PHP.
Come on, constants...12
I learnt Java in 2 months from 0 (or 0.005), a year before going to college. (the full experience™️; not just String, while and sysoCtrl+space)
On "Data Structures and Algorithms" class, the teacher says something like "usually OOP takes like 2 years to learn completely".
Me in my mind: "Aaahh I'm so proud of myself. *selfhugs*"
Of course I knew the teacher was exaggerating but even if she doubled what she thinks, I still was in the cool range. B|3
Ok so I had to make a revision on a PDF with JS that was being tested to fix some bugs, I hadn't touched it or Acrobat Reader for more than a month I think but I could work on it well back then.
I had to see the problem first so when I go and open it with Adobe Reader, it crashes. Weird. I can't get it to work.
Well I'm reinstalling it then.
After downloading the (now correct, I tried to use an old one I had and lost some time) installer, I tried to install it and it asked me to close Outlook and Excel. Weirder.
I do, and after finishing it said "you have a newer version, open it?". Super weird. Of course when I accepted it didn't work.
I uninstall my current installation and while uninstalling it asks me to close Chrome. Ok now I'm not ok with this shit.
I needed to fix it in some minutes and it ended up taking hours.4
"Don't you like the new site? (:"
I mean yeah, it's an upgrade from what was done in 2011 with 2007 recycled code.
But now the first access takes almost 10 seconds.
Was fucking WordPress necessary?
We went from a hotel booking PHP template to a blogging template.
60+ freaking Mb of shit, not just content but *shit*. (from the admin panel, only 3 of the 10+ sections are needed)
At least they won't bother me now about the main page frontend.
Oh wait, they do. So I had to learn how to hack the theme header behaviour because of course, cute boy WordPress couldn't care less on how the header behaves. I see more hacks incoming of fucking course.
Man I fucking hate WordPress.4
Hey, senior developers, is there a reason for this?
I just can't believe it.
The line that makes me wanna kill is the
$("#" + id).val(val);
Taken from a very profesional site.9
c3r38r170_201 was my original nickname back in 2012. <3
The _201 was later removed because it was too long for some Minecraft servers.10
