"sudo !!" Will rerun your last command with sudo privileges in a Linux environment.
It's like musicians and gear acquisition syndrome, coders love to have new stuff even if it's over-engineered, already exists, or redundant.
Hate dealing with tech hipsters 🙄 is nothing tried and true anymore?2
When you look back at Code from your 2nd year of university...
Using while loops as if statements to check for vowels... *shudders in fear*5
Am I the only dev who gets bugged when I see the common "a semi-colon just cost me 45 minutes!" joke, or similar?
Any modern IDE or text editor will show you syntax errors immediately, and even if they didn't you can usually resolve them in under a minute.6
Spent an hour on the phone with my dad because I needed him to scan and email a PDF. Literally no idea how to use a scanner, he got incredibly agitated as we worked through it, but the fax machine? Well that device is just human ingenuity at its finest apparently because that's would've saved him this headache!
Dad I don't even own a fax machine you wouldn't be able to fax it to me anyways.2
Resolved issues with iCloud and my moms massive photo library...
Months later. "What's Apple Music?"
It's just a streaming service mom.
"I've been paying $10 a month for it, why am I paying for it?"
"Do you like to listen to music a lot? Do you want it?"
"No I don't even know what it is, you must've done this with that apple cloud thing"
"Mom those are different things, I helped you with your cloud storage it's not the same"
"Cancel it for me!!😡"
All I did was clear my moms iCloud storage enough that she could do some photo backups from her phone, months ago. Never even moved her into the paid tier for the cloud storage, let alone an Apple Music subscription that she had for months and didn't want or use. Don't worry, I cancelled it for her.1
That feeling when the cpanel is locked from a startup you don't work at anymore, the sysadmin ignores your emails, and you are STILL CC'd on customer inquiry emails from their domain. 🙄1
