Microsoft Teams login says password is incorrect then and for a captcha
I type it again but fails...
I'm like wtf... Could it be the captcha...
Which I entered in all lowercase
It doesn't say the captcha is case sensitive though..
Next few times it gives me captchas with k... Teehee me like 5 tries to login
Are we trying to verify passwords/humanness or whether I can somehow tell the difference between K and k?1
Here’s Mark Zuckerberg demonstrating Meta’s high-end Project Cambria VR headset
**Without showing the headset**
They forgot to pixelate the part where they showcase the product...
The Verge: Google shows off AR glasses that might make a case for augmented reality.
See live translations... What a fckin joke...
The Live Translate and Transcribe features on the Pixel 6 and along with all the other features... Are a joke too....
Can only translate between English, French, Deutsch, Italian and Japanese...
So I deleted my last post looking for the next tech sale date as wanted a wireless charger because I found a deal...
It was like 60% off... But after I got buy instead regret...
The sites reviews are crap, it's a reseller apparently and no actual brand is listed...
And then I realized what I really wanted was a fast USB charger that takes a regular USB input instead of Google's choice of a microusb one ....
Another $20 down the drain... It seems the return policy is crap or non-existent...
Today I discovered a new feature of my electric toothbrush that I've had for years...
Sort of obvious afterwards but when I put it back on the charging stand, it automatically turns off.
Guess now I have a reason to put it back each time after use though2
I don't know if it's just me but if you sign up for Dashpass and then cancel during the month, it refunds the entire subscription...
Even when I've used all the benefits...
Seems like the devs forgot an if statement...2
I rewrote a giant VBA workbook (lots of business formulas, custom pivots of the data) into Java apps/microservices so that new tabs, other reports can be easily added using (JSON) data from the other apps.
In general, I was the only dev in the team that understood that monoliths are hard to change or scale...
I now know why Google Clouds sucks compared to AWS, and Azure.
1. No free tier
2. Pricing is confusing and designed for comp scis
3. Too componentized.
I wanted to translate text in an image like Google Translate/Lens.
Google: after a long search of the site's developer docs, I need the Translate and Vision APIs which have separate pricing specified in hours and task type
Microsoft: search Translate API,
Does images, first 5 million characters are free8
Just got an email from my company that a http server app I wrote years ago exposed the whole server it runs on because of a misconfig parametered...
Can use it to read any file using server.com/path/to/file1
Watching the NVIDIA keynote focusing on the Omniverse, would you say they have built a platform/ecosystem of products similar to Google, Apple Android/iOS where a lot of things would depend on/bully off their tech?
Anyone else using Algo in the Android app but can load the next other when they reach the end of the first?1
So Steam Deck is like a tiny PC, lets you play PC games on a tiny monitor?
Why would you want that? vs buying a gaming laptop/desktop
Assuming you already don't have one... And well if you do, why would you buy this?
Sense more like a downgrade?19
I want to run a simulation like rolling a dice N times and find out what's the distribution/probability of getting certain SUMs after the rolls.
However the dice is more likely to land on a lower number, and/or depends on what the number it landed on previously.
Stats wise I think ideally I want to be able to just input the avg, standard deviation, and skewness into a Random class constructor, and then ask it for N "random" numbers.6
Is there a portable DB format like sqlite but stores data like Mongo.
Each record contains key value pairs.
I guess I could install Mongo again... But kinda want to play with the data first. Pulls from a web api
I guess other alternative is to just save the json responses to disk in separate folders and files for now...
And abstract the DB layer behind an interface6
Figuring out how to cheat games is more fun than playing games themselves...
Especially mobile games where you need to watch ads to play or get rewards...8
Im so bored that I downloaded a 2d maze game on my phone...
I know it's cry very easy to solve since just need to go backwards but somehow still play it...
I haven't written a line of code in over a month ever since I stopped working due to health issues...
And I have no desire or ideas to create any new apps...
Sorta feels like I'm throwing away 20+ years of work/experience/passion.
Maybe I should just solve algo problems for fun?
Or should I finally try doing some (Java) open source...
Where to find projects?7
Me: Explaining what I do for a living (strip's title)
So true though as most of the workday is not coding...
Or is that how you explain all that typing (coding) to a layman?3
Meta made Horizons World open to all people that have Occulus.
I don't but watching a YouTube video all I can think is that the avatars and world look like the Wii one years ago... And well no better then mobile.
So would be better if they just used the anime art like Genshin Impact or Breath of the Wild...4
