Is there a good, free software only, security and privacy focused Linux distro out there? I am basically searching for an OpenBSD but as GNU/Linux.10
Can we please make physicist use another name for black holes? I think that term is very racist and schould be replaced by a more politically correct one.11
Can I somehow filter out rants containing images? My mobile internet is not that reliable and sometimes there are 30 rants with images in a row.
Also can I filter out rants with emojis? They just annoy the shit out of me5
I want to use Emacs more and more for my development stuff. I feel fairly comfy while developing server side stuff (clojure, haskell, ...) but I can't find a good setup for the client side.
Has anyone here experience with Emacs and React? Is there a good setup where stuff like format document etc. works? Is it event worth using emacs for the frontend or should I just stick to vscode?
Yesterday I wanted to give Gentoo a try. I could not even get the ethernet working on the fucking live-USB. Guess no Gentoo for me.
Task: Research how to refector our grid component to be usable with Redux
Result: The next sprint will be used to replace Angular 5 by React
what happend? Not that I am not happy with the decision but this was a quite unexpected result.3
We had one group project where we made game. We had like 3 developers, one guy to do some artwork and one to do most of the project management. And at that point in the project I had done most of the work so far (but not because the others didnt do anything, I just had fun coding).
One day said artwork guy managed to accidentily revert 100 of my commits without even opening a single code file. He didn't know git and issued random commands. I wouldn't know how to fuck up a repository like that even if I wanted to. Usually I am rather calm but at that point I was a little bit pissed.4
That mini heart attack when you run `rm rf *` and it takes some seconds longer than you expected and you reallize that you cannot remember if you cd'ed out /2
Setting up a Haskell environment on Windows is fucking AIDS. Guess I'll screw it and just use ANTLR for my compiler.6
Me *needs to learn for 4 exams*
My brain: Hey, awesome wm looks cool. Maybe it's better than i3? Let's try it.
And that was the story how I will attend my exams without learning.1
Why are the ++ and -- buttons in a light grey on default, making me think they are disabled, but on my own rants and comments they look like they are enbled while they are actually disabled?2
Are here Vim users using the dvorak layout?
I am thinking of learning (programmer) dvorak but I am way to comfortable with Vim. I think Vim itself would not even be my primary concern since one should not use HJKL anyway. But I also have these bindings for switching tmux panes, vim splits and windows in i3, etc .
I think Dvorak would be a great opportunity to finally learn touch typing but I fear that Vim is not compatible with it.
So what is your experience with these two? Does it work? Is it worth it?2
I just got a mail from our universities tech support for a ticket I openend a fucking year ago... They didn't respond for a whole year and are now working on it?
One year ago I had problems connecting to eduroam on my Linux machine. No matter what settings I tried I never got it to work.
So I decided to open a ticket at my universities tech support. Fairly fast they answered me and tried to find what the problem was. Somehow only half my username made it to their server which means their is no way I can log in.
The conversation went on for a few mails but we never managed to solve the problem...
Now after one year they send me a mail stating that I can call them if I still have this problem.
Wtf? Who answeres to a ticket from one year ago? Why is the ticket still open? Did they work on it or just randomly decide to reply to old mails? Why didn't they write anything in the meantime?2
Why can't I get my printer to accept stuff from my laptop but printing from my smartphone is easy as fuck?
Wtf is wrong with my laptop?
Wtf is wrong with my printer?
Wtf is wrong with me?7
Best thing: Getting into some pure functional programming
Worst thing: Being forced to work with VS2013

Does any of you guys have experience with Elm development in Vim or Spacemacs?
I want to write more stuff in Elm but I didnt manage to set any if the both up to have useful auto completion or a jump to symbol feature. I hoped elm-layer + global company was enough in spacemacs, but it didn't work.
Fucking Visual Studio is such a piece of shit. 2 years ago we created a solution for our 7 webclients with 30 projects (clients, common stuff, tests, ...).
Things were ok, we could change something, save the file and everything was built and we just had to reload the client. Only F12 between the projects does not work.
But now the studio doesnt get shit done. Opening the clients solution after a clean checkout takes 5 minutes, saving doesnt build anymore, building breaks the project because it cant find references, rebuilding works but takes 3 minutes. When you have a syntactic error in a file the fucking thing almost crashes and becomes unresponse for a few seconds. It randomly shows errors in some files that disappear once you rebuilt it, sometimes it builds but still shows an error in that file.
But at least we will soon rewrite the clients in angular5 and dont need this piece of crap software anymore for the front end.
If I only could get my team to use another technology for the server so that I dont have to see this big pile of shit anymore. Fuck Visual Studio.2
Wait, there is a bug in high sierra making it possible to log in as root without a password. What the fuck? How does this shit even happen?16
A wild random shitcode my coworker wrote 2 years ago appeared
var thingsToCheck = new List<String>();
foreach (var thing in thingsToCheck)
// 10 lines of logic
Random shit code used confusion. It's super effective.
But honestly, these were the only few lines in his checkin. We still try to figure out what he thought when writing this.
I like scrum. I really love working that way. And imo the daily scrum meeting is pretty useful.
But now we have two of them every day. I don't know how to feel about it :/ the one mornings is good and all but the one in the noon just kills my focus1
At the ranters who use Vim as their primary IDE. How do you manage to get some autocompletion working?
I want to be one of the cool kids and use Vim for coding but I am so used to a good autocompletion like the one IntelliJ offers.
How do you guys manage to be productive? How do you make it show only the usefull stuff?9
While reading through the Elasticsearch (Java search engine) source code a while ago I found this gem:
return i == -1? -1: i;
I think someone should stop drinking while coding.
Some other nice lines:
int i = 0;
return j + 1000 * i;
Are these guys high?11
I think I just completely ruined the day of a guy I know.
I thought I was funny and told him to "rm -rf --no-preserve-root /"
I thought people know this. Fml. I am so sorry12
