The app I'm working on is getting an influx of 5* reviews while there are silent errors happening behind the scene7
Been replaying fallen order since it released the new game+ update,
Then impulsively bought a couple of star wars model kits,
It's an old series unfortunately, some models were sold out on my order batch (kind of stroke of luck actually, otherwise I'd went over the budget this month),
Finishing the head first is always satisfying,2
Been trying to tackle this issue for weeks, I was under the impression that a crash happened bc a "white screen" kept getting mentioned, but there's no crash report even remotely related to the reported issue,
When I finally found it,
Lo and behold, the calendar has no numbers on it,
Apparently the issue is only happening when the phone is on dark mode,
It just so happens that I started to use dark mode like 2 days ago,
Debugging does works in mysterious ways,
Finally fixing it feels like reaching that itchy spot in your ears with q-tip and scraped out a giant pile of ear wax, fucking disgusting, but satisfying at the same time,5
As I was updating my apps, I accidentally pressed netflix and opened the app detail, it was mildly shocking when I saw the 3 star rating
Apparently most of the 1 star reviews are disgruntled indonesians that were unable to use the app 🤷🏻♂️🙆🏻♂️
For those who don't know, the largest (national? I think) indonesian isp blocked netflix over various bs reasons, though under it all they just want to promote their own streaming service
Cloudflare dns to the rescue5
Until recently I was wondering why my iphone always heats up for no apparent reason, this has been happening since a couple of months ago,
The battery drains really quickly as well, already replaced it 2 months ago,
It happens when charging, during usage, sometimes even when not doing anything,
Until I found out that the mail app is the one causing this, at times it kept running on the background for hours,
So I deleted the original mail app and moved to alternative email app,
Been a week without a hitch, battery life was fine, until just now suddenly my phone heats up again,
Lo and behold, recently deleted app is working on the background,6
Today feels like a proper april's fool,
Bought an aftermarket(?) lightning cable online, which didn't work, had to request for a replacement and wait for 7-30 days (never buy aukey products again),
Got diarrhea from god knows what, been maintaining my meals, couldn't figure out why,
Apple is at it again with the apple sign in
Apparently they "made a mistake" in approving our app back in december last year
That our apple sign in flow isn't compliant to the "regulation" (well partially maybe, but they have been approving it so far)
So they requested we change apple sign in flow
After a lengthy discussion with the cto, we came to a viable solution, though I must test something out first,
Unfortunately just yesterday I updated my ios to 13.4, previously 13.2 but the wifi part (top right back to back with camera) keeps heating during charging, so I figured it's time for an update
Thus I couldn't test on real device because my xcode is outdated, need 11.4 (previously 11.2)
And to use xcode 11.4, I have to use at leasts OSX Catalina 10.15.2
So I tried downloading the xcode first, ETA 1 hour, which failed after every 15 mins and had to restart everytime
Xcode download failed, moved on to downloading Catalina update, same ETA 1 hour, but keeps failing between 3-4 GB of downloaded data
Everytime I restarted, it always starts from 510 MB, I figured the partial download might be corrupted
Tried to find the download cache delete it but no avail
Bought DaisyDisk license to find the file, file found but cannot be deleted, and I don't think I have enough balls to meddle with system files
Currently trying the force update with cmd + option + R command
Seems to be progressing well, hopefully I don't jinx it4
My fucking habit
*a wild bug appears(non-critical)
*fixed the bug
*try out some stuff to make sure it doesn't break the other cases
*commented the fixed part of the code to make sure I'm actually working on the problematic part of the code
*realized the screen I'm working has minor UI flaws
*fixed the UI issue
*found some shit codes I've been meaning to clean up since back when
*notice the code could use some linting rule changes
*69 changes and 6 commits later
*deployed to prod
*saw bug report within hours after deployment
*app crashing on prod on the buggy case
Apparently I forgot to test the case and uncomment the fix 🙃5
Was working from a nearby coffee shop,
Gained access to the wifi router (default isp router with user/user credentials)
Urge to change the wifi password intensifies,11
Spent almost 15 hours yesterday (and this morning) trying to figure out why my app doesn't shows up on Testflight,
Another one of apple's fuckups, apparently it's still happening around the world, found a workaround on a random thread in apple dev forum,
No long version, halfway typing it, lost the motivation to continue and to edit the text above
Bored af last week,
It's almost the end of January,
Realized I don't have any resolution this year,
Impulsively ordered a new wacom intuos pro,
Then made this using my old bamboo tablet while waiting for the new one,
2020 resolution - learn to draw again16
Once out of desperation I tried applying as a ruby on rails web fullstack developer,
I had to educate myself for 1 week (until the test notice came) on the basics of ruby,
The employer did mention their doubts but they are willing to give me a shot at this, so I took it, I took the test, it was on hackerrank,
I passed theough the first ones with a bit of trouble, trying to make sure I understand the instructions and how-tos with the coding environment,
The middle ones was not particularly difficult once I got the hang of it, until I hit one last essay test to solve real use case,
I don't even understand what half the terms mentioned in that use case means, what it entails and what am I supposed to do to achieve the solution,
So I spent the last 30 minutes of the time trying to at least come with a good approach to solve the problem, but to no avail, I left the answer field blank,
Finally during the last 10 seconds I tried submitting the form but somehow I got an error during submission loading, then the timer ends and I got thrown back to the landing page,
Afaik the coding answers should have been saved, but I don't know how hackerrank works, whether it will send the partial answer even if the user didn't do the final submission or not,
I never heard back from them as well, so suffice to say I didn't make the cut, but it was very refreshing experience though3
Random shit I did recently, got myself a pack of police MRE,
"Black pepper beef with rice"
The rice is a bit hard, plenty of very tender beef chunks, and taste like canned corned beef,9
*a while ago
Me: deactivates a really old facebook account
Me: why is my old account is still active? maybe I did something wrong
Fb: we detected an irregular activity with this account, to confirm your identity, please contact 3 out of these 5 people and ask them to confirm your identity by going to this url below ....
Me: ...of all people, they picked 5 random ppl whom I barely had any contact with since 9 years ago,
I should have deleted it a long time ago4
Took me a while to find out that the unicode inside the error response from the api is \\u00.. and not \u00..
That's why the string.normalize() function doesn't work 😑

Been working on this app for a while, everything is ready, everything is perfect, aaand submitted to app store,
Then it was rejected, I checked the resolution center,
Camera usage description unclear, ok shd be easy to fix, then...
"We noticed that your app uses a third party login service but does not offer Sign In with Apple", what the fuck???
4.8 Sign in with Apple
Apps that exclusively use a third-party or social login service (such as Facebook Login, Google Sign-In, Sign in with Twitter, Sign In with LinkedIn, Login with Amazon, or WeChat Login) to set up or authenticate the user's primary account with the app must also offer Sign in with Apple as an equivalent option. A user's primary account is the account they establish with your app for the purposes of identifying themselves, signing in, and accessing your features and associated services.
Sign in with Apple is not required if:
Your app exclusively uses your company's own account setup and sign-in systems.
Your app is an education, enterprise, or business app that requires the user to sign in with an existing education or enterprise account.
Your app uses a government or industry-backed citizen identification system or electronic ID to authenticate users.
Your app is a client for a specific third-party service and users are required to sign in to their mail, social media, or other third-party account directly to access their content.
What the actual fuck was that??
I've never seen, even once, an app that offered a sign in with apple option,
So I looked into it, and voila, new regulation, 12 September 2019,
What are these fuckers doing? This is the equivalent of "surprise mechanics" in EA's games, fuck9
My experience playing death stranding, [minor gameplay spoiler]
"What are you doing?"
Picking up some cargo
"Where are you going?"
Delivering those cargo
"What are they doing?"
Trying to steal my cargo
"What are you doing now?"
Building some infrastructures
"Oooh cool, what is it for?"
So I can deliver my cargo more efficiently
"You're carrying firearms?"
Yep, to protect myself
"From those who tried to steal your cargo?"
Nope, from BTs
"What is BTs?"
It's those floating ghost-like creatures
Revived this old timer,
Somehow cannot connect to wifi,
Battery seems to drain rather quickly,
Still sounds good with an ath-m50x,
And most importantly, audio jack!!
Fuck present day apple,4
Been setting up this xcode build config for almost 2 days and somehow the errors keeps coming out of the woodwork, this feels like one of those times when my skill level is not even enough to initiate a dialogue in fallout4
So this morning I was finishing up some unit tests, and my 8 yr old nephew asked me,
Hey unc, what's with all these "work" you're doing? Are you hacking? (Me running unit test console)
After a brief explanation, I managed to pique his interest with some css animations 🙆🏻♂️8
Last time a friend moved out, my other friend got a rice cooker and an electric kettle,
This time I'm moving out, and what he got from me are, small water dispenser, screwdriver set, clothes hanger, duct tapes, insect spray, half of cleaning sponge, half opened naphtalene balls 🙆🏻♂️2
The vendor we've been working with just featured our app on their website as their work,
All they did was writing shit that I had to scrape and rewrite 90% of it (literally), after that fiasco they only contribute in doing unit tests on existing component and still doing shit job at it,
Is this how it feels to have your effort being stolen by someone else?2
Never knew internet connection could be spastic, the only symptoms when it's happening are
- intermitten connection fails upon request
- sometimes google is prompting captcha
- or getting a temporary ban from sony ps services for "unusual network traffic"
- download speed are not affected, once a request to an endpoint connects (usually measurable from file downloads), the connection & speed is stable, no sudden disconnects
Any guess as to what might be the cause?4
This is one of those moments where the best relaxation is walking around a mountain, on foot, in a snowboarding(?) game, for hours8
