No wonder the stock market is going up.... Commissions used to be $7, then $5, now $0.
Now everyone can trade... And appreciate since buying and selling one cost a few cents at most.... Even cheaper than lotto tickets with better odds...9
Not sure if this is somehow standard but have a new dev process we need to use to deploy a Docker image to an Openshift container.
(Is an container one node/vm or could be many?)
In the Jenkins build it seems the files are copied to in Docker image.
But they aren't copied to the container/OPENSHIFT deployment image. There's something mentioned about config map but not sure how that's related to file copy...10
I work for a big financial company and they're saying i'm going to get a promotion but have to go through an interview process and be compared with external candidates. Basically that a new position will be created and I need to apply for it.
To me it feels like an insult as promotions should be a reward for good work done on the job?
And technically I'm like the most experienced, expert on the team...
Everyone comes to me asking for help or to explain things...31
I need to implement a Java HTTP proxy with a login that basically sits in front of free Kibana.
Any ideas how to build it or existing libs, code I can use?7
Completion of vacation: 90%
Completion of TODO list: 20%
Reason: got sick... FML, maybe covid... or just a bad cold6
I think I just succumbed to FOMO.... just bought a NASDAQ ETF... bc it helps going up... And well I'm missed out on AMZN... though I wouldn't want to buy just that now to at the current price...
FOMO and rationality.... Always a battle...1
Mark: hey guys I wanted to connect with you all (on FB) and have a quick chat before the meeting.
Cook, Pichai, Bezos: ok, mhhm... what's up?
Mark: yes so I think we gonna be in for a grilling so want make sure we minimize the damage.
Mark: I'm suggesting we agree on the order which we join the webex so we don't look bad..
Pichai, Cook: I don't get it...
Bezos: ... oh I think I get it.... you mean appearing as FAAG?
Pichai: what's that?
Mark: not important but anyway... The solution is simple.
Bezos: yes Sundar just login first and I guess can send us all push notifications to our phones.
Pichai: hm... Ok... Wouldn't this get us in trouble though.... This sounds like collusion...
Mark: ok guys... Uh let's just end it here then... This chat Never happened...
Was chatting with a friend and he bought up the Olympics which is now cancelled and I thought...
What if we could never have a real Olympics ever again. Instead we have an e-Olympics for eSports.7
Are AMD chips now on par, better then Intel's now?
About 10yrs, Intel beat AMD hands down. My dad bought an AMD quad core around then but the performance was probably no better and an INTC 2-core if I remember.
After that I always bought Intel i7s.
But now wondering has AMD caught up?13
I'm on vacation this week but spent yesterday going to the post office for the Nth to follow up on undelivered mail. When got a diff package that said was delivered... But wasn't.
This morning wake up feel sorta sick but was OK, called USPS mail number and waited 1hr to get a person. And they said the post office closed all the cases I raised regarding the missing mail.
They said they will escalate these.. Which and to be just we'll do something, eventually maybe.
After the call I felt tired so went back to bed... Woke up 3hrs later (1pm) and sorta sweaty. Maybe a cold/fever.
I have an hard to schedule appointment with doctor tmr.
So took some meds and now hoping I feel better tmr and don't have COVID..... Just so I don't need to cancel...
And if I do go there only news I expect to hear is they discover some new health problem.
Some vacation this is.... Still gotta deal with the unending onslaught of problems in life....8
Tonight I'd thought I'd get a make bulk iced coffee... A fairly easy task except I used the wrong container.....
Apparently not all plastic containers can hold hot liquid....
Spent an hour wiping coffee off the counter top, everything that was on it, and the floor... Probably need to give it a good cleaning with floor cleaner tmr too...
But yes there went my evening of relaxing....19
My dad (taught me how to code when I was a kid) was stuck serializing a Java enum/class to XML.... The enum wasn't just a list of string values but more like a Map(String,Object>.
He tried to annotate it with XMLEnum but the moment I saw this enum, I'm thinking that's unlikely to work.... Mapping all that to just a string?
He tried annotating the Fields in it using XMLAttribute but clearly wasnt working...
Also he use XMLEnumValue but from his test run I could clearly see it just replaced whatever the enum value would've been with some fixed String...
Me: Did you read the documentation or when the javadocs?
Dad: no, I don't like reading documentation and the samples didn't work.
I haven't done XML Serialization for years thought did use JSON and my first instinct was... You need a TypeAdapter to convert the enum to a serializable class.
So I do some Googling, read the docs then just played around with the code, figured out how to serialize a class and also how to implement XmlTypeAdapter.... 20 mins ...
Text him back with screenshots and basically:
See it's not that hard if you actually read up on the javadocs and realized ur enum is more like a class so probably the simple way won't work...2
FFFFCCCCKKKKK!!!! SO MANY PPL ASKING ME IT'S NOT WORKING, WHY ISN'T IT WORKING, FIX ... TODAY....
Delegation doesn't seem to work and everyone else doesn't seem to be able to figure things out themselves....1
I'm looking into an app for work. It needs to connect to both a mongo and Kafka server using SSL or something, but different keys basically.
So need to load a jks file in the main() I think except I have 2 files.
I don't remember exactly how it works but I guess need to combine them into 1?
How do I load each though in app? Need to tell mongo, kafkaClient with one to use?1
Thinking of logging into work to do a side project and learn some new tech.... bc I don't have time to work on it during the week...
And there's no personal use case to do this stuff...2
If I app.properties in src/resources in a jar.
And load it in code I guess using Classloader.getResource()?
Can I override it at runtime? By I guess adding a different file but with same name into the classpath?9
TLDR: dealing with other people is stressful
I hate having to explain things to people and then they still don't listen.
Especially if they know nothing about the topic.... I guess like those little kids that ask Why? all the time.
Can't you see I have other things to deal with, just do what I say because unlike you I already tried ... Or just know what I'm talking about....1
Stuck on this problem all day... New project using Gradle... Usually we use Maven.
I added a Jodo Time to the project as a compile/implementation depency.
But it doesn't add it to/update the project so I can use it.
I'm not sure what part is screwing up.
Feels like if a class doesn't use a package it won't download it even if it's in the build.properties?
But well I can't use it if it's not downloaded?4
Watching Minions which mentions av lot of the minions by names.... So far I've identified the names of a coworker, head of tech, a client and my dad...
I want a staycation by myself away from all of life problems and the stresses that occur from interacting and having to negotiate with other people4
On Linux I want to scp a file from Machine B to my machine A.
Assuming B allows all connections is any key/cert file exchange needed?
I recall whenever I SSH to a new machine I need to accept a key on the first connect.
Guess general question is what is the connection process between 2 Linux machines for sftp purposes?9
I was just informed by email that it's my 9 year anniversary at my company....
Which also means I've been working for... 9 years.
First thing I checked was whether I'm fully qualified for social security and disability.... Apparently I was qualified a long time ago.
Next thought was "it's almost 10 years since I graduated...."3
Had a discussion about the future post- covid.
He said he and his friends don't go out much now bc of it.
TLDR: all houses will have a clean room at the door and a suits hanger2
Maybe this is old news but I decided to give it a try since I changed my username.
But basically u could impersonate users?10
The start of a new chapter of career life...
Until now, I always saw myself as the base raiser... but raising the base is not what everyone else on my team wants...
Only took me 3 years to realize... so I guess time to just fall in line...
I guess it's why some smart people act dumb on the job... It's just easier to blend in...18
The 6/30 LineageOS took ~4hrs to do the in place upgrade but ended up bricking my phone.
But this time I'm fully prepared! Side loaded from my dad's PC which I set up last week ago to try out TWRP and reflash Open GApps.
It only took 1hr, mostly from sideloading, and also reloaded a newer Open GApps.
And now my GPS location issue is fixed... Which is the main reason I keep updating...9
I just noticed, it seems no one rants much about their work or work mates anymore... Or ever?
Guess I missed the notice...14
A colleague on my team just confronted because she felt offended a lot by things I've said...
I don't recall saying anything that could offend her though other than an email yesterday that sorta triggered the convo.
But I'm like wtf.... Maybe I'm just not good at talking to ppl.... Especially girls8
