Finally, after days through hell I finally made it to scale the wordpress sites at 6.5k req/sec even at a reasonable price.
Through, the data transfer rate will be sky rocketing 😂2
I recently got a project for scaling multiple wordpress sites for around 5k req/s
The biggest mistake I made is that even though it's wordpress I accepted it, fml!
Even aws load balancer gave up.5
For iOS users, all I have is: https://youtu.be/hNUKRULqutg8
I fell in love with linux again.
My root partition was full and for past few days I have been deleting/moving stuff to get my work done.
And since, it was MBR I thought I had no option except for reinstall arch and setup everything again.
Just converted MBR partition to GPT and also setup UEFI boot instead of legacy without formatting anything.
Then extended the root partition and now I can create unlimited primary partitions.
PS: It was work laptop and I didn't take any backup.2
Management: Add my email(personal) in the bcc of all the transactional mails (which includes forget password, email confirmation, payment, booking etc) we are sending in this project just to check the fucking cronjobs are working properly.7
How do you know someone is masochistic?
When the person tries to write an X11 application...not GTK or QT, simply everything from scratch.2
This week is unproductive as fuck.
I work as python developer and write bots to solve captchas.
But due to lack of resources I have been moved (working on both) my assigned python tasks and node project.
Guess what, I have been updating html templates for emails for this node project.
I wish to find cactus for the management.9
My most cutting edge story would be working on Huawei fusionsphere cloud for some big firm.
They needed some scripts to setup servers for their newly built data center which will handle the live feed from traffic cameras from all over the country.
It was during college but I think it still holds the top place except for the new one that I'm working on right now.
A few years back I was following Fisheye Placebo webcomic and author went on hiatus for sometime.
On facebook page or somewhere I found she was working on some start up and she hurt her arm/wrist with extra work.
I can kind of relate to her now when I'm working extra with office and my personal manga reader app.
Finally after 4 hours head banging now I understand how react native navigation works.
Really glad to see how it's turning out5
So this is my first experience of shitty code written by colleague
God, for REST API she used ?id=<int>
Not only that,
if the route was /cms
she used GET method for /cms/get/?id= to get single record and
/cms/getAll again in GET method to get all records
So the same guy who called Ninetails from Naruto a wolf is PM in this project with me
During scrum meeting:
PM: I read the project scope again and I realised there are scopes that we didn't get it. Each time I read the scope there's something new.
Me: *Sure, the scope is fucked with a long 8 feet dragon dildo to start with*
PM: Read the scope 5 times, cause we don't want to miss anything. If QA raises an issue regarding the modules which are in scope but you implemented it wrong then it won't be considered Change request and you have to do deliver it in time even work on weekends with no compensation.
PM: Now, go through the scope again today and we will hold a meeting after working hours (unpaid, but can be adjusted in monthly avg) and I will ask random questions.
PM: And anyone who won't be able to answer them will sit through the non-working hours and go through the scope again
Me: *YOU FUCKTARD, incompetence from your side or from business development team to create a simple understandable scope can't force us to sit through non-working hours.*
I already had an opinion about this guy from my previous rant, his improved a little in between but I guess not3
So I was messing with mitmproxy in my phone and for some reason all Google services are blocked on it.
Apps hang when I suppose they're requesting to Google api, though chrome works for some reason.
I just realised Google even tracks the links you share with your contacts via chrome's address bar.
I'm thinking of going no-Google, any rom recommendations?
I suggest, we should add programming tests or language syntax test to verify users and keeping devrant away from stupid people.
Or give some kind of verfied status for the real devs9
I committed a sin for which I can never forgive myself.
At work, we were using some react plugin but it was lacking some functionality.
In the end, I forked the repo and released plugin on npm -_-
FML, I contributed to this stupid shit while I was happy with despising over this stupid framework fad from other side.
Ps: It was friday.
So I was looking for some real-time dashboard app using vue, tried searching for it on google and found some article.
He lost me at setInterval.8
So, at my new workplace which completed another anniversary (my first) thought it's a chill place to work at.
Just heard internal bad bitching and stuff, fuck I hate corporate.
And there's this guy who must have watched a few episodes of Naruto and called Nine tails a wolf, a fucking wolf!
Then today during my introduction, the same guy interrupted me with a mock "This guy is a hacker and he can read all your messages"
I was very tempted to say what I used to do at my previous company but energy saving...
Ah.... I already don't like this guy6
Fuck you mesa
I installed arch again due to some other mess up (another rant 😂) and this time I was facing problem with sleep.
The system froze every time I tried to wake it up from suspend state.
This is how I wasted past 2 days:
- Wifi device sleep issue, disabling wifi
- Probably sddm issue, let me try lightdm
- Last time I installed gdm, might try that as well
- Had to remove all the bloatware then I suspected plasma
- Checked system logs and found amdgpu error
- Tried disabling graphics using nomodeset, system failed to boot
- glx IP block hung!, it's the graphics driver
- Checked another arch forum, a guy was having a same problem after upgrade
- Downgraded mesa to 18.3.4-1
Worked like a charm though hibernate is still not working4
Happiness is when someone continues your project and writes the code in similar manner like you did.
For PHP based ERP which is using MSSQL as database.
Looking back at myself, I thought the refresh button made computer faster by cleaning up ram.
It's just fucking repaints the desktop.
Worked entire day on an ML to predict train ticket status for Indian Railways.
While doing the analysis of the data, and trying to check/research which parameters to use and which not, I'm feeling like racist -_-.
I was looking for busy period of the year(read festive seasons) and I removed those festivals which are celebrated by minor groups.
There's more to it, but the results are better now.4
I was reading some google api docs and came across php function parse_str().
This function literally executes the passed string as php code.
Who the fuck in their right mind would even think of implementing it.
I knew php is widely hated language, but this thing is plain abomination.8
