My buddy is on his way to Singapore in an A380. Drinking fancy whiskey and eating little pickled fishes.11
Hey guys, how do you feel about the death of Python 2. As a stupid person I love Python and it's the only language I can somewhat understand 10% of. What's going to change by moving to 3? Any of you guys adversely affected by any of this?? Broken projects? Lack of support? I really regret not teaching myself programming when my brain was still spongey.....it's just a ball of poop right now.6
My top and only plan for 2020 is to buy the next iPad Pro and pen and learn to draw cats. No joke.5
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020 from BG. I'm protecting my cat from the 2 hour barrage of fireworks outside. I wish you all well, I really do!4
My $1 Unix stickers took 4 days to arrive at my complex in my Bulgarian village. Wonderful Monday to you all, you fucks!19
Why is it a faux pas to have a beer for breakfast but having wine, champagne or coffee isn't?
They're all delicious morning stimulants and should be treated exactly alike no matter the time of day. This type of discrimination should end now.
Not a rant, of course, because life is amazing but I have a question.
Any of you guys and gals heading to Cambridge for PiWars (21 - 22 April)?
My wife and I will there helping out and possibly even judging the robots.
Apparently there is even a place to have daytime pints nearby.
You fucks should come and say hi + it's freaking Cambridge...place is dope AF.1
I deleted my Facebook so now you guys have to like the photo I just took.
Ohhh and have a great fuckin' weekend, you fucks.21
Not a rant because life is fucking amazing... but..
I deleted my Facebook account. I can't fucking believe it. I have a bagazillion people following me and my booze fuled horseshit rants, photos of hamburgers and cats.
I fucking did it.
Not a rant, of course, life is amazing but why did I get a 3rd pack of stickers after only paying for one?
Also my new Pi arrived and I'm getting afternoon drunk.
Afternoon drunk = #1 drunk.
Have a great weekend, you fucks.10
Not a rant, of course, as life is amazing but...
... Here is a rare, beind the scenes look at what happens on the back end of our office.
Wishing you all a brilliant fucking' day from Bulgaria's Black Sea coast...12
Is this question still really that important?
Even when I update my Pis that have 32GB SD cards, I can spare the 12kb update.10
I AM MAD AT EVERYONE who has never seen Kraftwerk live. Holy fuckin hell what a fun retro-party this was last night. $1.50 500ml beers, too... Whooroooopooo!
If you get a chance to see them, please go.2
This is incredibly interesting. How the frikkin-frik did the WiFi and Bluetooth die on my Raspberry Pi 3. Yes, I realize they work in tandem but how does something like this just die after just sitting around and performing light duty tasks for just a few months.
Reinstalled Rasbpain 2 times, nothing. USB WiFi dingle works great.
Not really a rant but I wonder how shit like this happens.
The Pi is in a case away from my cats, in a temperature controlled environment and adorned with the official power adapter.
Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.
This is more of a rant about myself and what a prick I am. Last week I left my brand new Kindle at a hotel, just forgot about it because my brain is mush.
I don't even bother calling the hotel for days thinking and knowing full well the staff would have taken it (this stupid thing is worth a week's worth of wages here). I decide to call anyway and ask. "Yes sir, Mr. Matt, your Kindle is safe and sound in our hotel's main safe in a soft case awaiting your pickup or we will be happy to courier it to you".
I drove back to Varna and the super nice hotel guy apologized he didn't have my number otherwise he would have called (I don't have a phone number in BG).
I hate being the cynical asshole-dick I've always been.
I'm getting drunk now.10
Why the fuck is it raining right now and why the fucking-fuck does it cost 15 British money to ship 4 magazines to my apartment?
I also ran out of beer.6
OMG you guys weren't kidding. Windows 10 sucks. I finally understand why no one uses it anymore. I heard the Linux brand is very good.50
Why the fuck isn't there a DevRant coffee mug in the swag store? I am sick and tired of drinking java from a freakkin' plate.12
I'm so fucking non-agry right now and really feel like posting the following:
What do you fucks do when not waiting for Windows updates to finish, compiling Linux kernels or waiting for job interviews? What do you guys/ladies do for fun? What would you do if you didn't have to work in this, at times, horseshit tech industry?
I like exploring cities and villages by foot or bike with a backpack full of beer. My wife and I have explored more than 200 places across 3 continents, from London to Chernobyl to out of the way Cambodian towns and 20 hour drunken Paris hikes. We drink in parks like hobos and try to strike up conversations with everyone we meet, especially other foreigners/immigrants.
I also love Formula 1 and try to watch a race at least once a year (went to Monza last year).
If I had many bucks and a smarter/sharper brain I would get a pilot's license...but alas..
I also love playing colorful little kids games on my 3DS.
So yeah, curious what you guys do for fun? Any dreams for the future?
Answering this question is compulsory!12
What sucks more than running Linux as a desktop OS?....This hotdog-free IKEA restaurant.
Fuck this place.39
This stupid computer is in clamshell mode connected to my screen and mech %99.999999 of the time. I take it with me on a trip and the down arrow key breaks off (little plastic shit-thing snapped off)..WTF? 2013 Macbook that has about 5 hours of total keyboard-use, at best.
Walk into the Apple shop in Varna, 3 Euros and I'm back in action.
ahhhh fuck..it was probably my fault clacking too hard.
Good sushi here and my dry February has happily turned into large pints of Kamenitza...
Cheers from Bulgaria, you fucks..5

Obligatory DevRant sticker post. Cheers from Bulgaria, bowl of shkembe to scale.
