been a while, past few weeks have been a painful one for me.
I finally got that second monitor and also built the small home server( I'll give details in another rant).
been a lot going on around me, there's a protest going on and a lot of young "unarmed" people including children killed, lots of gory images, all we were asking for was to stop police brutality, they're still shooting at people. it's a lot going on here. I can't even concentrate. I took some time off social media because all the bodies I was seeing was beginning to get into my head.
I really can't Express how I feel right now. we were expecting the international community(I really dont know who exactly) to come to our aid, lol
It's all over Twitter. images, videos, everything.
I just hope everything gets better.
the image is my new setup. I just log hello world on the console and that's all I do with it.
my table is basically two wooden slabs supported by textbooks on chairs(at last I found use for them since I never read them in school ). server is under the table.
keep us in your prayers. thanks7
some old time clients finally decided to pay me, so I had a bit of cash on me (I feel rich, lol).
here's the thing: I am torn in between buying a second monitor and investing in that server i planned to build in a previous rant.
I could just save the money, I dont know if I am being extra right now, I remember when I just had half a laptop screen to work with, now i have a this used 24 inch monitor I bought for cheap now I want to expand with another 24 inch probably. this arrangement will make things a bit comfortable and faster for me but it still wont affect me if I dont get it...........ok I'm talking too much6
I really want to go back home to my computer
what kind of torture is this?
I haven't touched a PC in weeks, almost a month.
I feel like I am experiencing withdrawal syndrome
what to do? 😪10
my dearest president decides to greet us this Independence Day morning with this!
this country is a big joke13
I want to build a small personal linux server from an old PC
Intel atom n7 blah blah
Intel HD graphics card
4gb of ram
six cell battery(its a laptop)
sata hard drives
I was going to go for free nas but I read that I'll need to connect the PC to the router via a lan cable, I dont have a router and very costly for me rn to purchase one.
I also feel like it will end in tears but I'll try
pass or nah?18
not really that hacky but it was something back then
when I was still learning front end development. I enabled live server on my vs code, connected to a network went to a different PC and connected to same network, went to browser on second PC, entered the other PCs IP adress and added the port number provided by vs code, I was able to access the website I was working on so as I worked and saved the site automatically refreshes on the other computer and i saw the results immediately
this was because I had an 11 inch screen PC. a hp mini. was practically impossible to work with that so whenever my roommates PC was free I'd do that without having to code directly on his PC
later on I enabled auto save on vs code and it seemed I was on a roll. lol
I remember when an aunt met with me and I advised her to get a PC for her son.
he is just 7 years but he always wants to visit me everyday just to use my PC. even when I started using linux he still managed to find his way around. really smart for someone who didn't have a PC. I even found some Google search history of him Google weird instructions and errors and whatnot. since I wouldn't always be around since i was always travelling.
I put the PC together with the huge budget she gave me. it was waaaaay better than mine with all that rgb shit. I loaded it up with all that programming, softwares, ebooks and videos and games I could find. few weeks later he stopped calling me(usually he'd call me to know if I was at home), i felt lonely for a while before i moved out and i felt like i did the right thing. I felt like jesus, lol
at least if I dont get to become a pro at coding I know I did everything and helped him start early9
some African elders who cant just let a young person be a young person
if you can't do without minding your business, just ask me what I am looking at or doing on my phone. I'll turn the screen to you and explain.
they just start this very long unnecessary talk about young people and phones
the fact that this fellow doesnt even know me, never been to my house, just met me on a trip is just talking nonsense
blah blah blah blah
you went to school to sir! but you're here doing business. is that your degree2
lord knows I have missed devrant. my dad dragged me away on business. the hardest part was parting with my PC. I felt it.........
we buy cashew nuts and have them exported for this random Chinese lady. tried discussing about computers to the village boys but none of them understand anything. everyone is surprised I have a whole computer to myself at home, most have never seen any and just nod their heads like they understand 😂😂😂.
my dad wants me to be a produce exporter I keep hearing things like "there's a lot of money here, if you want to start on your own I'll support you". but then it's hard for him to drop a penny so I can buy a proper PC that is used(I just needed something efficient). I kinda feel like this struggle will make my success story much more interesting but then, what if I dont succeed?3
I am about to pay for a wireless keyboard and mouse, those ones that come with dongles. I was wondering if they work in BIOS or the OS has to boot before they become functional? thanks5
well... I really dont know how to explain this error
in the directory where I have my testing.cpp file, I type "clang testing.cpp -o testing"
my result is just supposed to be hello world and I am getting this.
note: clang is my c++ compiler since for some divine reason I can't install GCC on termux.
I checked the github and no one gives this complaint. I honestly can't read that error code, I just want it to go away
I hate coding on android, it's always a sorry case
I could have been a farmer or a teacher or a bus driver or an alien but I chose coding. I am really tired
I took a very long screenshot6
How come I never heard of Samsung DeX. I watched videos on hooking up a Samsung to a HDtv via hdmi but they never showed this stuff.
Practically turns my phone into a desktop11
My first rant. My very "african" dad just told me coding is for people who want an excuse to sit in front of a computer all day. An excuse for laziness.
it's funny coming from someone who never paid a single attention or gave me a single penny to support me 😪18
