I wanted to let everyone know that I finally decided to release the new version of my website! 😄
TableTopFinder is a board game database with price comparing in several European web shops.
Any feedback is welcome, I like good ideas! 😊6
So I have a website as a personal project that has a decent amount of visitors each day. The codebase, however, is really ugly because it's something I made very fast in my spare time three years ago.
Over the past six months, I have been working on a completely new version of the website with a better layout and much nicer backend code.
At the moment I'm pretty sure the new website is ready to deploy. I even asked some friends who tested the website very thoroughly and came up with some minor bugs.
But now I'm really stressed to deploy the new website and I keep postponing it. What if I forgot a stupid error? What if some mobile part doesn't work? What if the new website isn't as SEO friendly as the current and I lose my visitors? 😱2
So, the last days I saw a few posts here about binary clocks. Somehow I wasn't able to read them, until I read a comment they had to be read horizontally.
As far as I know binary clocks are supposed to be read vertically. Am I missing something? 🤔6
Alestorm had a huge rubber duck with them at Alcatraz metal festival yesterday. I love them even more now! 😂7
That moment the client asks to add a single link to a header and you think: "easy enough". But then you notice their CSS.
Not a single f*cking class is used in the entire header, everything is done using :nth-child selectors etc... 🤬
Also, did I mention, the CSS is used for several headers, so adding an element to the header and modifying the CSS might break any other header in the application.
And this after they mentioned last week that they don't use a library like Bootstrap because it is too cumbersome.
I'm so mad right now, have been trying to fix this for half an hour. A task like this shouldn't take more than five minutes!6
I work as a .Net consultant. Currently I am at a company that blocks all sociale media sites and sites that look like 'em. I don't mind the social media, but YouTube is also blocked and I need my dose of daily epic music world while developing. So, I set up a proxy on my server to easily bypass these blockades. Note: company policy says nothing about not being allowed certain websites, I always read this before using this trick.
Last week, a new guy joined the company and gets a desk just next to me. After a lot of looking at my screens and trying stuff he asks me for the entire office: "Hey how are you going on YouTube? It doesn't see to work for me.". 😫
The rest of the day, I had to explain to co-workers what a proxy is (they don't care about any tech they don't need...). And I had to explain to the pm that I was not hacking their network...
I'm not sure if I will be getting along with this new guy.... 😧1
Dev colleague when searching something on Windows:
* Click the windows button
* Click the search button next to windows button
* Type the search string
* Wait for results to load
* Use the mouse again to click the first search result.
I try to keep calm, but this annoys me soooooo much... 😫4
Music, mostly Epic Music World or piano music.
I am a consultant and currently working at a company where nobody listens to music... I cannot understand how they do it! 😱
If I cannot listen to music at work, I cannot concentrate.
Let's make it clear once and for all: 60% of Belgium is Dutch speaking. So stop setting my language automaticly to French because of my country! 😡
Whenever I encounter a website that does this, I tend to look for another site that either understands Accept-Language headers or knows the above fact.
Yes, I'm looking at you Ubisoft store! But there are many more of these !#@% websites out there!7
I want an rx580 for my new pc build, but all of them are sold out...
Damn cryptominers, now I'm realy pissed!! 😠
So, I was building a new pc for gaming and dev, but I can't choose which cpu to put in.
So I thought let's put it here: i7-7700k or Ryzen 1700X?
I was just thinking that bookmarking a rant could be a good feature for this community. 😁
I came across some rants with info I wanted to check later, but no way to save the rant anywhere. I just saved the links to a text file for now.3
We had to learn flash and actionscript because it is the future of the Internet! That was only 2 years ago. Apparently that teacher also added silverlight after I graduated...1
Just wasted two hours finding out why one of our clients rest API is not working. Apparently it needs a referer header for no good reason and this is no where to be found in the documentation...
It is great that you even have documentation, but please include all basic details!!
Just wondering why most of you here hate php. I have multiple live projects using the Laravel framework, runs great and I love it!16
