Why is my todo list neverending ??? Like, goddammit I need to sit down and read a book without being behind on some deadline!
... Wait, gotta go, I'm behind for some paper's deadlines. 😶😑4
Hey, getting bored here, does anyone know of any cool API's that provide computing puzzles, decyphering, math shit like that.
For example, one of the ones that I have completed is the
I'd like something along those lines
If you were given an aptitude test for a job and they put you on a laptop with an wifi connection, would you use the internet to solve any questions you struggled with? I mean is it cheating or is it just using your initiative?1
Anyone else have people that seem to constantly try to "prove" themselves to you in this weird, competitive way that only makes them seem... very annoying? I'll call him Bob here, but it's always something like:
Bob: Hi Almond, how's it going?
Almond: Ah not bad thanks, PSU blew up in the PC over the weekend though so that was a bit of a faff!
Bob: Ah no! How old's your PC?
Almond: Oh, like 7-8 years old now. I don't replace it often.
Bob: Really?! I replace mine completely every year.
Almond: Ah, cool.
Bob: Yeah, I'm a dev so I feel I need to. It's like my tool, you know.
Almond: Sure thing!
Bob: I actually spend quite a lot on it. I make sure it's got the fastest memory I can afford. Like, DDR5 stuff. That's really important, you know.
...etc., while I try to get out of said conversation for the next eternity.
(while in a conversation about a frontend bug I was looking at in Chrome devtools)
Bob: Hey Almond, you know Firefox actually had a plugin that did all this stuff before everything else?
Almond: Err, yeah, I think so. Used it back in the day.
Bob: It was called firebug. It was really good. Revolutionary.
Almond: Certainly was.
Bob: It was launched in January 2006 you know.
Bob: I used it back then.
...I mean damn, I'm all for being civil, but no-one cares you replace your PC every year, or that you know the year firebug was released, or that you once set up 5 identical PCs with different versions of Linux to run some benchmarks...12
WTF is wrong with Manjaro, every package I install gets "error while loading shared libraries". VSCode, chromium, even yaourt?! I mean this just doesn't even fucking work.
I downgraded my kernel and now I get the same errors and when I -Syu, I get a thousand "Warning: x is newer than y"
So my recommendation will be to cool off first, after any intellectual task like programming — before going to bed.3
A "partner" company has created a "REST" API we use on an online shop we developed to send all shop-related requests to.
At least once a month, something fails on their end and the customer calls us every time, expecting that we did something wrong, but it has never been us.
These "partners" do exactly zero testing, are extremely slow in solving API bugs, have almost no logging and have no monitoring on the API at all.
Today at noon, suddenly no customers were able to order anything anymore for 4 hours.
How the fuck can you run a business so unbelievably brainless that this keeps repeating monthly?
Time they fire all their "devs" and everyone in charge of the company and operations. TERMINATE.13
I need help with my stupid website: I made a section that gives you a random YouTube video, but since the API key that I have has restrictions, I need a way to get random YouTube videos without the API key. I don't think it is possible (I went to page 2 of Google and didn't found anything there too!).
By the way, this is the website https://funtext.github.io/rndyoutub...
I hope someone can help me... And thank you in advance!16
Boi did I forget what a horror is to deal with Wndows...
I just wanted to shutdown a laptop to replace the SSD and a wifi card. Prepared everything, clicked on the [start] and there were only "Update and *" options. Wha the hell I thought, I could spare a few minutes. It's just a software update - should not take long!
Little did I know...
That was 45 minutes ago and It's still shutting down. And I'm just sitting with that screwdrived in my hand, looking at that blue screen and waiting. I feel stupid
UPDATE: I gave up. Long-pressed the POWER button. que sera, sera, right?
Lights go out. I press POWER again to boot it back up (forgot to save smth else). And it boots up back to the "SHUTTING fucking DOWN" AGAIN!!!18
My internship is extremely boring, I've worked at a company for four days and I've only had 2 tasks which took about 15 minutes each! What should I do tomorrow?8
Does anyone else experience this?
One of my co-workers regularly breaks his Dev. Environment [on purpose]. I know it’s on purpose because he’s been seen by others doing it and caught out several times.
He then plays dumb and pretends he doesn’t know why it’s broken, so he can sit there reading the web/personal emails and eating, doing no work.
This really pisses me off.6
Here, you are able to see a Windows installation in its natural habitat. This particular specimen is confused whether an internet connection exists or not.
(The internet was working fine on that machine btw)6

Much obliged if you stop reloading the folder and searching it every five fucking seconds you fucking cunts.
Good god damn this fucking 'feature' of windows 10 grinds my fucking gears. I hit 'x' to stop seeing the visual distraction of the fucking green loading bar when the folders already loaded. Same thing with music. All I want it to do is open and play my fucking song.
Does it do that?
No instead it spends precious cycles updating fucking indexes or sprinkling crack rocks on the corpse of my cpu or whatever cycle fairies at fucking microsoft programmed it to do while wasting my fucking time.
I wish I had a brick and a microsoft programmer within throwing distance, I'd be sorely tempted to nail the motherfucker square in his fucking big fat melon.
fuck count: 85
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
Can anyone please suggest me a good strategy game for android or desktop. A game which force me to think.13
