Some information in advance:
I developed a Word AddIn for automatic document creation. This AddIn pulls data from various systems, transforms them, if necessary and fills them into templates.
The AddIn gets rollout by another department. And by now there is version 1.3.3 out.
Now the story:
Since several months I have heard of users which have some reoccuring problems with the AddIn and I couldn't understand why. The first level support always helped them with some workarounds.
Now, I helped one user by myself and what did I see?
The user had version 1.0.5 installed!!!! WTF!? The version info is very prominent for the first level support and they should know, that this is not the correct version!
I think I have to implement a version check now, if the rollout is so great working...maybe I should have done this since the beginning...
Printed a Pi Zero Case for @joshbent.
Hope you like it (it is the non chamfered version). It is not perfect, but I think it came out quite good. The color is a bit off in the picture. It is a really nice red in reality.7
Someone here into 3d printing? Got into the hobby end of last year and built my own new printer this year. I love this hobby! So great to print custom housings for your build electronics.12
Screaming/getting loud is common sense in our office. If one of us thinks his opinion is the right one, we always defend our positions until a Nerf war emerges. Screaming included!8
Just surfed the devRant page on firefox and saw this. After seeing the tag "your website sucks" I wasn't sure, if it is a bug or a pictures posted by someone...
It was not a picture. Three rants overlapped each other.5
So much rant against the GDPR. In the meanwhile USA Today created a site just for the EU. No Tracking or Ads. A site which was normally 5mb big to load is now 500kb for the EU! Awesome! Thats what the internet could be!3
Today I wrote my first small python application as an exercise:
Scraping all post EuroJackpot draws from a website, save them in a database, sort them, some checks and do some combinations. Everything quite clean in classes and functions.
And the "application" is just 100 lines big. I love it so far how much can be accomplished with just a few lines.
Professional .NET Developer here:
After years of using Windows and C# for everything at work and at home, I finally switched yesterday from Windows 10 to Arch and from C# to Python for my hobby projects. Feels good!2
"Microsoft programming chief to devs: Tell us where windows hurts you"
You must be kidding, right? Since Windows 10 it hurst the moment it is installed on my fucking PC. I don't want those fucking cloud functionality on my fucking PC. If I want it, I would work on a Mac FFS!
Let me decide when to update my god damn machine! Even with a fucking enterprise edition it is not possible the way I want it! Yeah, I don't have to login with a Microsoft Account, but there is always a small, little, Microsoft-Hating-Devil in my Head telling me: "Who knows, if they don't sync your clipboard even, if you don't login with a Microsoft Account?" (Cloud synced Clipboards are the next bis shit coming!!!)
There is not much left, and Linux will be my all day OS (second boot atm).4
