Me : The website renewal bill is up and it will due in 30 days
Client : Sleep
Me : 14 days
Client : Sleep
Me : 7 days
Client : Sleep
Me : Last notice, it'll be dead tommorow if we dont pay today
Client : Sleep
Me : F
Client the day after suspension : Hey, we can't access the site.
Me : Play dead
I think i should say "email service will die if you don't pay the renewal bill" instead
based on how quick they react when shit stopped working8
How to make your employee suffer, drive them insane and having suicide tendency 101.
Delay the paycheck for 18 days but still asking about task progress like a normal day. Like nothing happened.
I can't pay water and electricity bills that due in 3 days, can't buy medicine,
can't buy gas for the bike,
next week i'm not gonna be able to buy food
The good thing is, i still got the internet, i can look for new jobs and play some games to forget how shit my life right now while the electricity lasts.
I have no suicide tendency, just to make it more hiperbolic 🤣9
The performance is based on how much code you wrote that day.
Not mine though, i heard/read it from somewhere else.
But that’s fucked up, right?22
1. Kill Internet Explorer
2. Kill anyone who sell their web/app/design services cheaply that broke the market value
3. Kill anyone who want something in exchange of "exposure" or "you'll get the money when we get funding or IPO" or some shit like that, you name it.2
Create a html page on paper, a simple form.
That part was easy.
The hard part was to create the ajax submit function with the validation, jquery is ok.
Failed the test because no way i can remember those shit.
That was 6 years ago
Always bothered by mobile devs to make them icons and splash screens with different sizes for android and ios
So i made them a script that resizes one big png file into multiple icons and splash screens they need that can run via terminal
They never coming to me again since then8
WTF freelancer, just won a design contest and it’s so fucking hard to withdraw the money to my bank account.
“There is some invalid bank details in your withdraw request, please confirm with your bank”
I never withdraw money before so i have to wait 15 days for my first withdrawal for each withdrawal methods.
The first method (express withdrawal with no fees) was failed because the bank details issue, talk with the cs and they told me to confirm to my bank, confirmed and tried again (only 1 or 2 days waiting time) but still failed, been trying this 3 times.
Trying the second method a.k.a wire transfer, i have confirmed the bank about what details are required to receive money from overseas first so i can prevent some stupid errors.
Wait another 15 days and ...
STILL FAILED WITH SAME PROBLEM
This is the first time i regret when i won something.
I got an instruction to follow exactly what the client wants with the design i have made because they are also a “designer” and guess what
A nissan juke just got transformed into fucking fiat multipla
As long the client happy i must deal with it even it against my will
So sad and mad looking my design becoming something else
Thankfully there’s DevRant to relieve this emotion 🤣
Don’t worry, I’ll comeback...
When i need to download chrome after fresh install
P.S. not mine, i stole it from the internet using chrome3
Vendor : “We’ll implement blockchain technology in your website!”
P.S. I stole this pic from the internet6
6 hours of weekly progress report meeting in client’s office EVERY FUCKING FRIDAY.
Yes it’s a progress report meeting that can be done via email or skype
Yes it takes 6 hours
When we go to the meeting, we have
1. The boss
2. The 1% PM + 99% sales guy
3. The secretary who document everything in that meeting
4. Me as a dev
The only thing i do is to answer “yes, that’s technicaly possible” or “no, that’s stupid” when the client ask for some features or changes.
Sometimes i’m just being an accessory in that meeting.
It was years ago before i quit and become a designer 👌🏼5

I’m from wkwkland and holy fuck it’s true.
Just watched sam and niko youtube channel’s latest video about a bug/feature in windows when you do this:
1. Create a new folder
2. Put a file or two or more inside it
3. Select all those files
4. Right click and send to compressed (zip)
5. Press ctrl+z
6. That folder and its contents disappears to another dimension
Here is the video link btw https://youtu.be/YY5zfbDlSMs1
The website i made has been hacked today.
Stored in their server.
They didnt give me an access for it.
The user account in the cms i used for updating content while building the website was revoked when the website is completed.
Now they ask me for the latest backup.
I have no backup because how the hell i do a backup when i got no access to the cpanel.
The only backup is the zip file for initial uploading into their server and the contents were added after the website is on their server.
That goddamn IT guy who wont give me any access for “securty sake” is calling me furiously asking for the backup and how to set up the stuffs from the beginning.
I thought he was the one who know his shit but i was wrong.
But i still responding to him telling him step by step how to do shit with some swearing and sarcasm.
ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR SHITS, MATE7
Testing an attendace machine API one by one so i know what does what.
And there’s an API for wiping all the attendance data stored in the machine.
I didn’t realize it until i push the damn button.
The attendance machine just become fresh like new 😱😨😰
A testing session just become an extreme sport.
Thankfully the IT guy has a backup but just up to last month.
Well, it’s better than nothing isn’t it?
He just tell his boss that the machine was run out of memory and the attendance data for the current month were not saved.
And he ask him to buy me some machine for testing.
Yes, i was living on the edge by testing in the production machine.
When client requesting something, it has to be done ASAP.
But when i ask about the payment...
I must sign some documents declaring the job was done
The documents then must be sent to manager
The manager must create another document to be sent to finance division
The finance sent that thing to director to sign the damn document so finance can make a payment
Oh shit the first document before i start the project went missing, i have no idea why they need that
Some weeks has been passed till today
Cant find the document
Recreate the document
I must sign it back but they said no worries, we can advance to next step so i can get paid today
Manager creates a document
Manager sent that document into finance
Oh shit the financial division is having some seminar, its friday so it will be processed on monday
What a great way to start your day and begin your fucking 2018
The cat just pissed on my laptop (it’s a macbook air)
Dried the fucking wet stink af laptop
It still works
But the fans gone crazy and slow af
Trying to reset the smc stuff
Nothing changes, still retarded
I want to open the bottom case but i dont have the screw driver
With its fucking limited 128gb storage i store my shits in cloud storages like google drive, dropbox and mega and my projects are stored in bitbucket so nothing to lose
Me : 1 vs Cat : 1
To my beloved cat:
I work hard using this damn laptop to provide food and home for you and you just take a piss on it.16
My december salary is delayed for a year (i’ll get paid around 2 or 3 january).
This broke af fireworks pic is how my new year looks like.
P.S Pic is stolen from facebook4
Web version of whatsapp requires your phone to work, my phone is dead, fuck me.
They should spend money to make the web version better instead of dat stories shit that no one use8
Telegram is blocked in my country 😭
The web version is no longer accessible but the mobile app still available, but it just a matter of time6
The website load time is so fucking slow!!
And i saw the images they uploaded was a jupiter-sized images.
It's the devs fault for not making validation.
But me, as a designer must help them resize those fucking already uploaded images to be web-friendly.
