Anyone else go to stackoverflow to answer questions when super bored or when there's no coding left to be done?3
Just had a random nostalgia moment:
Childhood days playing wolfenstein 3d in the telephone cable modem internet times.
I clearly remember the first cheat code i used in my entire life for that game : ILM
What was your first cheat code and the first game that comes to your mind when talking about your childhood games :)2
If you're planning to be a new entrepreneur (like me) here's a few things to keep in mind:
1) it'll keep getting harder but it's all worth it. Do not quit mid way no matter how hard it gets.
2) stop asking everyone for advice, they'll either be assholes or you'll end up getting confused by too much contradicting advice.
3) regardless of point 2, people will still advise you on everything (ikr). Listen to them, and if you don't agree with it... Do not bother to correct them, never helps... Just ignore it
4) if some one is an asshole to you or someone shoots your idea down, don't get discouraged. Reflect on it and if it's irrelevant, forget it all. Do not try to be an asshole back, always take the higher road.
P.S I'm also still learning... Hope you all very best for your endeavours :)6
Is it just me or does everyone's earphone/headphone wire get caught on any damned thing exactly when your favourite part of a song is about to play
Like say I see fire's chorus might be coming up and a random amoeba might crawl along and my earphones would even get caught up on the little dude.
It's just sorcery
Android oreo made me change so much code and broke so much shit like background services that my latest branch in git is FuckAndroidOBranch6
Resource not found exception occurred when i tried to set an integer text inside a TextView in android.
Spent an hour trying to comb through my entire android app's layout resources looking at all the declared ids and cross checking then.
Didn't work. Tried googling and stumbled upon a stray human who had encountered a similar issue.
Turns out if you print an integer inside the setText, it will not consider it a normal printable value, it will think that's it's a resource id and try to use it.
Fucking misleading exception. FML ANDROID5
Ever regretted leaving a job after quitting it for a while, only to remember all the shit you had to go through to them think that it was an amazing decision to leave.
Imagine this loop happening every few months. It's amazing how stupid your brain can be eh.
Share your stories of a nightmare job but now you are living a life with living.
Me: develops my first android app with firebase by google.
Me: finishes app, tests it and it works.
Firebase after 3 months: we were first going to scale our servers on our own based on how many people are simultaneously using your app. But now fuck you, we will have a cap of 100000 simultaneous users.
Me: fuck this kills my app if it scales. Have to Shard everything on the db side and overhaul the entire app to work will multiple db instances. Takes a month.
Android after 6 months: dude your app is working fine without any hiccups. Let me fuck it up. We will stop all your services when your app is not running or backgrounded. Also we will make it illegal to start services in this case and we will throw exceptions.
Me: what the actual fuck. They now want me to focus on a JobScheduler, fine... But now even intent services won't work properly. So use a job scheduler to start a JobIntentService which is essentially another job scheduler for queuing. wtf android.
Ps solved it and works again.
PS: WAITING FOR ANDROID TO FML WITH ANOTHER NEW VERSION. Maybe they'll say you can't run your app at all now4
