Him: Is Hava a type of programming language?
Me: *looks at what he's looking at*
That's fucking Java 🤣😂13
I've always elected to program a lot of my tasks instead of manually inputting them. Using a computer to solve repetitive tasks is the name of the game.1
Hey I see that you're trying to access your account. That sucks, we don't have your phone number in our records. But that's Ok because we're going to send you the confirmation letter by snail mail...
I mean, I guess that's secure... but seriously though 5-10 days until I can see what is happening with my taxes? This is insanity1
Have I ever told you guys of the time that I had made my PM feel bad by saying I had to drop 3 classes because he was working me so hard?
Yeah that happened and he felt really bad about it!
GOOD! FUCKING GOOD! I want you to feel bad about it! Don't you dare say that I'm not putting in enough work ever again!1
Browser “Do Not Track” Signals: Most browsers contain a “do-not-track” setting. In general, when a “do-not-track” setting is active, the user’s browser notifies other websites that the user does not want their personal information and online behavior to be tracked and used, for example, for behavioral advertising. As required by recent Shine the Light law amendments we are required to inform you that, as is the case with most websites, we do not honor or alter our behavior when a user to one of our Websites has activated the “do-not-track” setting on his/her browser.5
So... um... I'm a real asshole... but this website where I'm applying for a job doesn't check how many digits should be entered for their GPA field.
At first, I wanted to see if I could put in the pi symbol (π). That didn't work.
So, then I added 10 digits of π into the field. When I saw that it had accepted that many numbers, I grew curious and wondered how many numbers can I fit in here.
I added 100, then 1000, then a million.
Sooooo, do you guise think I'll get the job?9
As my contractor job ends and my beginning the process of looking for new work the sudden feeling of imposter syndrome starts washing over me.
"I'm not qualified for any of these positions...", I say to myself, but then I think to myself, I wonder how devRanters deal with this.
So let me ask you, devRant, how have you dealt the *Experience Required* section of most jobs when job hunting?5
I get serious anxiety when someone is doing something on a computer and I know that the way they are doing it is the slowest way possible.10
Raise your hands if you absolutely need a screen to work!
Most of you? Ok.
Well, let me share a story of a dev who doesn't really need a screen at all.
Hey! How do I do machine learning?
Well first you start off with a metric shit ton of data.
And then you .fit() your data
from there you can .predict() your data
Trust me, the algorithms are already there. All you need to do is get the data.8
Not programming related but is related to devrant.
I recently deleted facebook from my phone, and just a few days ago I got my first ever facebook ad! (An ad advertising that I should download the Facebook app.)
If this is not representative of Facebook's slow and perhaps eventual demise, I don't know what is.
This is related to devrant because I deleted the facebook app because I enjoyed DevRant more. Oh and also I feel less stressed now that I've basically unplugged from that rotten social media platform.3
TLDR: Find a website that requires a subscription but doesn't check their cookies' integrity, now I'm on a website for free.
>wonder if it's possible to intercept browser data
>find that none of these really fit me
>go to youtube, search how to intercept POST data
>find something called BurpSuite
>Totally what I was looking for
>start testing BurpSuite on devrant
>I can see all the data that's being passed around
>wonder if I can use it on a website where my subscription recently ended.
>try changing my details without actually inputting anything into the website's form
>send the data to the server
>refresh the page
>Huh what's this?
>must be a userID
>increment it by 1 and change some more details
>refresh the page
>didn't work 😐
>Hmmm, let's try forwarding the data to the browser after incrementing the uid
>can see the details of a different user
>except I see his details are the details I had entered previously
>begin incrementing and decrementing the uid
>realize that the uid is hooked up to my browsers local cookie
>can see every user's details just by changing my cookie's uid
>Wonder if it's possible to make the uid persistent without having to enter it in every time
>look up cookie manipulator
>go back to website
>examine current uid
>it's my uid
>change it to a different number
>refresh the webpage
>IT FUCKING WORKED
>MFW I realize this website doesn't check for cookie integrity
>MFW I wonder if there are other websites that are this fucking lazy!!!
>MFW they won't fix it because it would require extra work.
>MFuckingFW they tell me not to do it again in the future
>realize that since they aren't going to fix it I'll just put myself on another person's subscription.5
John: You know, I don't appreciate it when I run the application and it crashes on me. Especially when you say it's working. If you say you've debugged it and got it working, I shouldn't be able to break it in the first 2 minutes.
me: You know John, with all due respect, there are two ways that this can go. Either we can actually work on this project as a team and get something done, or I can leave and have you flounder on your own trying to complete the rest of this project for the next 4 months. Now, I know that you don't have a lot of experience in this framework, so that means you owe me the respect I deserve and not complain about the way things are getting done.
Me: Ok, John, I'll fix it.1
You know what I do when I get upset or depressed?
I put myself in bed. I guess some things from childhood don't change.
Having a tantrum? Time to go to bed.4
Why does the FBI even bother asking Apple to put a back door into their devices when it already comes with backdoors?27
