I like docker. I think the technology is cool and I have a few ideas on how I can use it. But I sometimes think I'm too stupid to use it.
I'm currently trying to convert parts of my dev environment to use containers. But following tutorials on it confuses me and I get lost with it really quickly and get discouraged for a few days until I give it another try and fail again
Like fuck I already know I'm mediocre but this makes me feel like i should go into a manual labor field instead of software development6
Bought a laptop off my friend for $100 so he can get rid of it since he no longer uses it, and he can use the money to get more fans for his desktop to help that with it's overheating issue.
I took it home and for some reason didn't want to turn it on immediately. i decided to first take it apart and see if there's any internal issues just in case. As soon as the back cover is off I see that 1 out of the three segments on the lithium ion battery expanded. yep gonna order a new one of that tomorrow. I'm not the most hardware savvy but I'm pretty sure an expanded battery can cause an explosion1
System76 laptops good? Considering getting one to gracefully migrate fully away from windows since I'm basically in wsl and Linux vm's most of my day these past few months anyway4
So after my webhost told me the reason my ssl was broke was due to an issue I had no control over i threw a fit any 12 year old would be proud of (im 22) bought a new domain name and ssl certificate. Created an account on digital ocean for the cheapest tier and got to work learning about nginx (just to learn my new thing for the day nothing against apache) real quick
Few hours later https://jessiejfoley.dev is working
No content yet. But no server side errors I cant fucking fix through a limited dashboard
Don't know if that counts as petty but I feel better now7
Ok. I still can't get SSL working on my site so I'm gonna assume its my fault. Time to go back to a default template test that get it to work and if that works go from there. Ive done EVERYTHING my host says to on the dashboard side I can short of crying to them. And honestly. Fuck that2
What the actual fuck. I turn my my computer on and all my environment path variables are removed i can't use npm Java python or many other things i use until I put them back in the env path. What the fuck 😑
But I should have made a backup with all of them so its my fault I guess3
Why the fuck does my subdomain work with https but my main domain returns an ssl error. Wouldnt nether work if the ssl was the issue
Its midnight I want to fucking sleep not deal with this shit. I'm probably doing something stupid but don't have the fucking experience to recognize what I'm doing wrong5
If I only have 5000 page views my free tier commenting service allows. Is it necessary to let users know. Or is it alright for them to find out when they can't comment on my horrible site anymore until next month5
You ever feel annoying when you explain things to your co-worker, like they're stuck on an issue and you solve it for them so you explain what happened, why it did what it did, and how the fix works, but as you talk you can see them start to get a little annoyed and just waiting for the conversation to end.10
tldr; devRant is great
My favorite part of devRant is I ask an opinion on a technology and so many people give me alternatives or ideas to look into and learn about instead. This is why I enjoy this community I'm always learning about new things i probably wouldn't have heard about otherwise. Or at least wouldn't have run into for a long while. Thank you all2
How the fuck does my boss setup 2FA using her name, and then forget that she setup 2FA even though she sees the fucking app send her a code every time she logs in. Now we need to get her to reset her password so we can get the information so another team member can access the information they need.1
What's devrant's opinion on WordPress blogs?
I've wanted to start a blog for a while to share what I know and learn from others who read and want to correct my mistakes on the blog. But as of now my own site is barely held together and nowhere near ready to host a blog. So while I continue learning and building my skills to eventually make my site more reflective of my abilities I'm considering starting WordPress blog to just start now rather than continue the 'eventually' trend I've been following while working on my site.32
My office uses decade old refurbished optiplexs. One of them even runs win7 32bit (ALL the rest or 64 bit) last night I stayed late to finalize some setup for moving the shared folder from a network shared external drive plugged into one person's computer. Over to a system that'll act as a NAS as well as run some simple automation (nightly backups mostly)
While doing that I remembered one person complaining their computer not always booting right. So I turned it on. Made sure it worked didn't notice any obvious issues. Turned it off. Unplugged it. Opened it up. didn't see any obvious issues so I closed it back up. Tried to turn it back on and it refused. Then I smelled burning electronics. Quickly turned it off unplugged and opened.
I think something shorted and the hard drive finally failed or something. I don't know what exactly it could've been but I threw a fit and left for the day
I'm currently in my way in early to swap that computer out and do some more investigating. Wish me luck talking to my boss less than a month in and something breaks while I'm in the office alone8
I've been working here for a little under a month keep hearing about them not remembering passwords, or not being able to access something due to a rarely used forgotten password, so I decided to Set up a shared password manager for the team using keepass and a generic intranet setup, pulled a password csv from one random on the floor person's chrome to start with. Turns out they ALL sync data from the owners account, and the owners saved passwords include HER payroll login info, and the accounts for ebay, amazon, etsy, basically anywhere you can buy anything....
yeah I think this is gonna need to be a conversation with her soon.8
Anyone Know what the 'fixer for java' chrome extension does. How bad is it?
My boss had an extension called 'fixer for java' on her chrome browser. Now to me that sounds sketchy so I'm trying to find it online to see if the description or website can alleviate my worries about the boss getting hacked but I can't, does anyone know what the hell it is for, She's out of the office tomorrow so I'm gonna run all the virus scans but if i can get some information sooner that would be great.
thank you for your time.7
I may be getting evicted due to landlord stupidity but at least I survived budget cuts and get to keep my job after internship. The full-time job offer will be emailed tomorrow
Two interns got cut but at least I and another intern survived.
But sadly now I have to go over my friends work and learn what they were doing well enough to continue it with the other survivor1
Student loans soon won't be the only thing on my damn credit score.
Asshole landlord is evicting us to renovate and take advantage of higher home rates, we got a month to figure stuff out
Dad's credit score sucks so I get to put a damn home loan on my score so we don't risk another asshole evicting us if we rent and hope like hell my dad doesn't screw me over
Thank athismo my job pays enough I've been able to save for a good while
At least if we own it we'll be allowed to make modifications without waiting months for permission4
Just ordered my first Android after using the same iPhone 6 since 2013 in 9th grade of high school
Got the Galaxy S9+ on the recommendation of my friend. Hopefully it's not too difficult to get used to12
I'm about to graduate college and I still don't know a good note taking method that works for me
I just write terms I deem important and make sure I know those for when I need them(the test).
But now I'm trying to read a coding book and have no damn idea how to make sure I actually learn a damn thing besides passively absorbing knowledge5
Hi Devrant, my little brother showed me this site (https://commits.facepunch.com/) which is the commits page for a game he plays.
Some users comment block element characters like █▅▌▊▋ ▉▇█▅▍_▍▄▉▆ he asked if i knew if that meant anything and I don't, but now i'm curious myself.
can anyone recognize the block characters and/or understand if they actually mean anything, as far as a I know they're just block elements people use to mess with others, but like a lot of people are posting them
anyone has an idea of a potential path i'd appreciate it, i'm really curious about whether this means anything or is just a troll
thank you for your time5
Anyone else join a youtube livestream, go to the beginning and start watching at 3x speed to see if you can catch up before the stream ends4
WSL seems really cool from what i've been toying with it. WSL2 seems like it'll be even better and the integration with docker(another thing i'm toying with) looks interesting. as far as i can find though it's only on windows insider for now, and I don't like having telemetry on my main machine.
So i spent a good chuck of my day just setting up Hyper-v, learning about nested virtualization (so docker will work), setting up a win10pro vm, and i'm now in the process of setting this up to be a virtualized dev machine (not gonna be a one use only system cause i spent way too long on this shit) and setting up docker and wsl
I don't know much about docker or WSL beyond just some random stuff i've learned to toy with to simplify some things i do. but maybe this will give me a cool way to actively learn more about them and maybe use them as more than just boredom toys3
Yesterday my friend called me programming Jesus for getting her code to work properly
She's started learning python. All I did was fix the indentation issues and explain that whitespace is finicky in python and send her a couple of article links about it. pretty boring of an issue
I'm kinda bored I wish someone had a more substantial issue for me to look at and have to actually learn something new to fix it
Considering finding a project on github to try and contribute to as a side project when I need a brake from my projects. But as a worse-than-mediocre college coder I'm intimidated to even try5
I like to look back at what I considered 'programming' back in high school compared to what I'm doing now as a almost CP college graduate
Still know absolutely nothing. But that's immensely more than what I did as the best student in my high school programming elective and the barely accomplishments i achieved as a high school intern at CMU
I still have a copy of some my old high school 'code' (more like data trash)on a flash drive just for memory's sake
You ever get pissed at programming but also be having fun experimenting with getting something to work
I was up till 7 am angry at all the errors and issues but I couldn't bring myself to sleep until 7 when it worked a few consecutive times
Today I get to write tests
I'm bored and can't sleep soooo...
Bad clever code vs Good clean code
Worst / best examples. - what's devRant got
Stories, pictures, links. All mediums are welcome1
Knowledge management. My last job had notes recorded under closed tickets. Some people use hundreds of gdocs. Others have github gists some people I've seen just have sticky notes everywhere
How do you handle personal knowledge bases?? I want to set up some system for me and maybe my friends3
Favorite React begginner tutorials? It's time I actually do something with my website I pay for other than just a badly programmed digital resume I threw together out of bordom.
I plan to turn it into a personal site/personal blog so tutorials to make that plan easier is appriciated. Time for me to get a head start on google-ing while this collects comments.
Thank you in advance2
I can't sleep so I'm making a dark mode userstyle for dndbeyond. The only one I could find on userstyles.org is from 2017 and doesn't darkmode everything2
