So, me and my girlfriend were on a discord call and she said to me: "You know how you can get lost in someone's eyes? Well, I get lost in your code".
I've never been more touched and conflicted in my life. 🥰🤨6
And here we go again.
Found at my university.
I bet it won’t pay anything during the dev phase, and then “fail” and you get nothing.
FFS is pisses me off!
Oh and of cause an nda.20
Some fucker installed a keylogger on my Ubuntu laptop at home and registered it as a systemd service. From Wireshark, it's sending each keystroke to a server in France using irc. Tried accessing the server but the moron shut it down immediately. It's the last time am fucking installing code from prebuilt binaries. If I can't build it from source then fuck off your sniffing cunt. I was about to log in into a database from that machine.
UPDATE: I found the actual file sending the keystrokes but it's binary. Anyone know how I can decode a binary file?40
I'm starting to get the impression that ranting about Arch (and its users) is way more popular than actually using it. Can we stop that shit and just let people use whatever the fuck works for them? That type of ranting is unoriginal and it gets tiresome to read about after a while.
I'm one step away from programming a blocker for PHP / Arch related bashing content.10
Arch users are literally like vegans, or guys who study the law - they can’t live normally if they don’t tell you that they use it. Just because you can install it, doesn’t make you instantly a Linux god. It’s like Kali users that they think that they’re hackers if they install it, or MacBook users that think that they are “kool kids” because they have a laptop that thousands of other people have.
- Why don't you use jQuery and Ajax instead of Vue?
- jQuery, nor Ajax, is not really an MVC.
- Yes, it is.
My face: 😟6
Any Home Assistant fans out there? Got myself a RPi3 a few months ago and got hooked on HA, because of the huge product support and great community. Didn't find any dashboards that I liked so created my own, written in JS, fully customisable and support for most if not all kinds of gadgets. The purpose was to have something easy to use for the whole family, on a wall-mounted tablet. What do you guys think?
Anyways, has anyone done some cool home automations/scripting? Would love to hear about it!77
So went to my bros graduation at CMU. Weather turned out to be really nice unlike forecasted.
And I was even able to meet myself 😀... Sort of8
Java devs: grab a drink! You'll need it after seeing this.
The "Shit students do, even after almost a year of Java lectures" saga continues...47
At first I wasn't crazy about it,. but I think I'm hooked now. I am a big fan of fira mono. I switched my xterm to use it, and it's really distinct and helpful. I highly recommend giving it a try.
Anyone in London knows that when there's a single drop of snow on the train tracks, the whole fucking train system collapses.1
Why is it always free anti-virus? Story.
Friend had bought a new laptop over the weekend and bought it in to our Monday morning lab session, but when he logged in he got a black screen and a mouse pointer. Hmmmm.
Me: "What did you do to this machine?"
Friend: "just installed a few normal programs like Discord, Eclipse and Avast"
I sigh. Free anti virus in my experience causes more trouble than it's worth, but how do I kill it?
Ctrl-Alt-Del and get task manager. File>run... "iexplore". Great, now I have a task manager window and internet explorer. Now I try a file:/// url, and up pops the file explorer. I switch the file explorer to control panel and uninstall Avast. The instant avast is gone, his desktop and explorer.exe pop right up.
Needless to say, he owed me one 😂11
Anyone use the i3 window manager? I'm trying to get the hang of it, and I see no advantages, it's just harder to use, which is a shame because I /want/ to like it!11
I happen to be the only girl in my small dev team of 4 males plus me.
I'm freaking tired of hearing 'hey guys','how are you doing guys', 'what's the update guys' in every meeting/call when one of them is addressing the rest of us.
Yeah i know I/they can't do anything about it. I somehow grew numb to hearing it, but sometimes hearing it one thousand time in a single call is driving me crazy.
I once mentioned it to an a senior dev who happens to be the one using the g word the most during meeting.
Me: could you please stop saying guys all the time, I'm not a guy.
Him: what do you want me to say, 'hey guys and a girl?!'
Me: ... -_- (internally: seriously!!)
I hate to hate. Wow that’s a paradox. But Windows—why? Why must you have he volume be 2-3x louder every time I unpause a YouTube video. Then I have to adjust the volume to have it reset to what it was before.
I try to give every operating system an equal chance, but EVERY TIME I PAUSE A VIDEO? Not to mention you also updated *some* driver, in which I am very unaware of, while I was watching a video. Then Firefox crapped itself for no reason.
Please, stop it.
Okay so here are a few lessons that I have learned from being an intern to a junior developer (who’s just 2 years out of college).
- every ninja engineer starts off as a noob. There’s nothing to be ashamed of if you don’t know “everything” about coding
- Respect everyone’s opinion (including the one that shouts your design is crap in a meeting). Don’t process them too much.
- leave things that happen at work, in the workplace
- Keep yourself up to date even after you’ve bagged the 100,000$ offer. Never.stop.learning.
- Be polite to your interns (been there). They look up to you and treat their juniors the way you treat them.
- Be honest. Including your tiny scrum updates. If you need more time, tell it. If you’ve screwed up something , own it up.
- Never blame or point fingers.
- Nothing is irreversible.(except things like sudo rm -rf/)
- There’s always a way out(of any mess).
- Respect what came before.
- Respect what comes after (before you push badly written code)
- It’s ok to point out mistakes but Be kind. (Else you’ll end up in someone else’s rant ;-) )3
Do you know that feel when some relatives ask you why you are "gaming" all the time, while in reality you just released a new version of a library you wrote and wanted to get it right?7
Yeah I have finished my work on Linux and have 2 hours to play video games.
But first let me backup my work.
*error : file system in read-only mode*
Fix the error & update backup script
Switch OS to windows
*wait, windows is updating*
*game need to be updated*
2 hours later, I still haven't played.1
@dfox can you please implement a gang feature? Someone assigns an hashtag to some people and everytime this hashtag is called, the team members get a notif.
Adittionally, maybe you could add gang stats (how many new rants, how many times the hastag was mentioned etc...)36
