I'm a noob so I was dumb enough to google 'Eyeballs' in case it's a kind of tools that I don't known yet.
I was having a discussion with my Spv because I am stuck at my project, when suddenly he said :
"Hey, you seem to enjoy this subject!"
And I was just standing there speechless..
I spent so much time than required in the contract because I'm getting paid and more importantly because I can put this experience in my portfolio.
Not because I enjoy this job.
I'd rather work on my personal project, preparing for job interview or playing with my cats if I have another choice.
He is a nice guy and has helped me a lot, but in the end it's all about the money.
Or maybe because I have a hard time trusting people these days.
I can't wait to start job hunting next month so that I can say goodbye to this job.2
Spot what's wrong with this command!
It took me 10 minutes scratching head to find it out. This is why we still need to use our brain when copy paste-ing code.
From my Iranian friend :
Since the 16th of Nov 2019, there have been massive civil protests happening in Iran due to the sudden increase in gas prices. Gov has cut out the Internet connections of the whole country in an attempt to prevent the news leak. The armed forces of the government are violent and unfortunately, there have been more than 200 people killed in the last 4 days and lots have been injured and are being arrested.
Meanwhile, a lot of Iranian applicants are trying to apply for foreign universities. However, due to the internet blackout, it's impossible for them to get online and submit their applications. Moreover, as far as we know the international language exam centers have been canceled the exams because due to the current situation.
We, a group of Iranian people and our friends who care about human rights would like to ask for an extension of the submission deadlines of universities for Iranian applicants who are unfairly get effected by this major internet blackout. We know the majority of them worked for so long to make their applications and We really appreciate if you could give them a chance of later submission due to the current situation.
My department just installed a new high performance GPU, so :
1. Good bye, my old laptop GPU!
2. Let's play around and break the shiny thing! 😎
(more likely I will be the one who break down due to frustration though 😬)1

I want to print this pic out in enormous size and qty, hang them in many classrooms to show my female friends that it's normal to wear cute skirt and cute shoes while wringing cables on your shoulders.
Why are you so slow Kaggle...
I have tons of data to analyze with multiple methods...
Prof: "Hey, you can take a look at the source code that we used last year in this research paper"
Me :(surprise because other papers usually don't share source code), "Okay"
A few weeks later:
Me: "Prof, if you use method A instead of method B, you can get better performance by 20%. Here's the link"
Prof:"The source link that you mentioned is for another instrument, not GPU"
Me:"Yeah, but I tested in on GPU and I found it is also applied in my device"
This is why folks, sharing the source code that you used in scientific papers is important.8
Friends/Seniors : "Hey, you should take these courses. They are easy and you can get easily an A!"
Who the fuck decide what optional courses to take based on if it's easy or not?!
Students take them because :
a. They are interested in the subjects
b. Knowledge/skills after attending the courses will be beneficial for future career.
I put my money more on option b though, i.e I'd rather get C's in courses that I found it useful, than getting A's in useless courses.
(Btw, my avg grade is just a little above Cs)
If my sole purpose was just to get straight A's, I would enroll in liberal art courses instead of this stressing half-CS course we're in.
You're a joke to yourself, that's why I don't hang out with you.3
Does anybody here knows an opening for retail job/cleaning services?
I am so fed up with this sh*t I'm working right now.
What I want to write :
//TODO : Parallelized this sh*t ???
What I actually write :
//TODO : Parallelized this part later if possible (i.e after checking if overhead doesn't cost too much)
Sigh.. I want to add more of my personality in my code.
My non-programmer friend (a mechanical engineer) has better pay doing what she loves.
I have lower pay, clocking more hours, and stress, doing a subject that I don't like.
Should I change profession?
If I do it in python : Finish in one day!
If I do it in C++ :
1 week for installation and configuration
3 days for coding
Another 1 day for troubleshooting...
But I will still prefer do it in C++.5
I am just beating around the bush since I started this project, hoping that one day I got lucky and found the shiny solution.
After trying 4 different versions of installation, applying patch, digging through obscure sites, down the rabbit hole, finally
ERROR at 97%
(; _ ;)
Back-up plan : Forget everything... buy land somewhere in the in the mountain and be a farmer.2
"We can't install the latest Win 10 features and security improvement on your PC due to low disk space."
Time to clear up.
Should I delete my hands and feet too?
I just bought my laptop last year.
But I already crash it several times due to my horrendous C++ programs.
Lifespan is greatly reduced.
/*Please bear with me, sweety!
At least, until graduation!*/
Found out other team's project result about performance for uni assignment. It's that Matlab is the fastest, followed by python and C++ is the slowest.
They are gonna get roasted during presentation (by many people in the audience including me).
This is gonna be fun.
...This algo can predict new thermoelectric material discoveries years in advance...
Me to all material scientists : "Work harder or we'll replace you with AI".
P.S : I also need to work harder as I barely know the surface of Linear Regression.1
Pissed af at my idiot teammates for dragging down my project grades. But I believe this won't be the last time as there are more idiots out there.
I need the credits to graduate .. sigh...
Other people : save money to buy car, house, etc...
Me : save money to pay for this f*cking degree where 80% of what they taught will be useless after graduation.
The reason why I like to code alone in the dark is so that people cannot see my dumb mistakes such as 'forgetting to hit run after compile and wasting 10 min wondering why my code didn't show on the console'.
