Mail provider: "You are over your storage quota"
Me: "K, guess I'll clean up the junk I have on there then?"
Mail provider: "We also block IMAP connections for accounts over the storage quota"
"We have a nice documentation you can use to get this up and running"
>half the bloody variables used in said documentation are never even mentioned how they are defined
Guy who have talked down on me for being a "shit webdeveloper who doesn't know what he does" suddenly came to ask me whether I could help optimizing his "company" (just one of those "I just say it's a company to look cool") website :^)1
This was actually written by a Junior of mine (and if it wasn't for me having to review it, it would have made it to production):
- On display, the HTML of the news article wasn't HTML escaped.
My brain: "Let's just send this XSS vector to this PHP script"4
Send an open-solicitation to a company for a medior PHP back-end developer.
Got rejected because "I do web development"...
Bitch, I'm writing an entire CMS in PHP, write entire DNS servers in PHP, write Discord bots in PHP, wrote an entire gameserver in PHP and you're gonna whine to me that "I do web development" because I also know front-end stuff?5
Me yesterday: "I have too much projects... maybe I should shelve some..."
My head this morning: "I have this splendid new idea for you to work on"
The year is 2020, we have:
- Self-driving cars
- graphene batteries
- graphene nanotubes to combat cardiovascular disease
- the ability to fly around the world for very little money (not taking the pandeming into account)
yet we still don't have a simple fucking way to use EXT4 drives in w10 without relying on 3rd party tools...11
Tried using a new language...
Syntax was really nice to work with, no additional bloat like webpack/babel required either...
And then I hit the roadblock...
they enforce *hardtabs* with no option to change to spaces D:
for crying out loud D:10
Me: "Oh right I still had to fix that"
Me: *fixes thing*
Me: *checks on staging to make sure it all works*
Thing: *works absolutely fine*
Me: "Cool, let's promote it"
Me: *updates production stack*
Me: *checks on production to make sure it works*
Thing: *still broken*

People that ask for help on a program I've written...

Build a tool two years ago that I used to download anime of a website.
Buggers now broke it by encrypting(?) a URL I need and using obfuscated JS so I can't find what I need D:4
Spend the past few days 3D printing those mask holders on my 3D printer, currently sitting at about 72 pieces in total to give away to friends and family around here :)8
me: *spends most of the evening coding his new shitty website*
me: *forgets to go to bed*
Da': "I hope you're not becoming game addicted"
My parents weren't very supportive about it at first because they somehow kept (and still are) linking it to game addictions...

tmw you reach page 20 on Google just to find out how to make a fucking tar without this stupid "./" appended to the front of every file (and without that retarded empty dir that's literally just called ".")
Send back my PC for RMA two weeks ago (likely dead CPU, but I just didn't know anymore)...
They send me a mail confirming that they have received it and a mail that they would start on it (along with some terms)...
Two weeks of waiting, no news at all...
Mailed back: "Oh sorry, we forgot to add the line asking whether you agreed with our terms..."
Two weeks of not being able to properly sit at my desk, play games, work on code reasonably (with my 3 screens) and edit videos I still need to finish because they forgot a stupid line in their mail --'2
Trying Laravel for a few hours...
