AboutLikes to lift weights & do programming. Prefers backend development. Often called a walking library and loves most animals.
SkillsRaw uncooked php, laravel, some js soup, a cup of Vue, a pinch of Ruby & rails. A sprinkle of c# & a hint of c++. Oh and not to forget, css. Mostly the third iteration.

I've been programming professionally for a year and it went without any embarrassing experience, even without thinking about preventing any embarrassment ._.
Am I boring?5
The last 3 days I spent with almost no sleep, just to deliver a shitty WordPress project, then when I thought I just finished and got rid of it...
"Hey, why this part of the layout isn't like our designer defined?"
"But it is, check the template I received, see?"
(a few minutes without a response on whatsapp)
"...oh, we sent you the WRONG layouts, sorry...we need to redo the front page, content pages and listing, also we have to..."
*turns cell off*
*slams my hand against the nearest table with all my might*
Thank you, designers, I "wuv" y'all7
I still don’t understand bitcoin. People buy it like it’s the future. It is the most traceable currency EVER MADE, far from being anonymous as people seem to be delusional in thinking. Why are people so fascinated with owning random data that happens to hash sum up to properties that are neither interesting nor remarkable?
When someone comes up with a currency that is not traceable, call me. Until then, let all these block chain egg minders trade this bullshit without me.18
The DNS server I'm writing in PHP (largely taken from another project) is starting to work!
Next to just blocking queries it logs every blocked query so I can have stats :3
A little terminal output:66
What's your thoughts on stored procedures(of DBs)?
What are the pros and the cost you found or perceived?
When they are opportune?
Overusing them more than a programming language is an abuse?
I was introduced to a software started initially by economy\finance people which knew a little bit programming, nonetheless their doing became messy though time and at a certain point hired a team of 4 people(from my company) to deal with it, but the approach of the two programmers to build most of the framework on calling stored procedures or queries makes me want to puke, there are almost no layers of separation of concern in place x_x6
Got a new hobby :) Have one solder that I had to fix so took the opportunity to clean both of them34
With the development of the past couple of days and the formation of different clans / teams and the fact that some of them are planning to join alliances with each other, I hereby announce the official emblem of the Cult of Pink, whos followers believe in the Spirit of Pink.29
Too much stupid today..
Client: "Our server is almost full, fix it"
Me: "Okay, you can upgrade the VM, or I can see if theres anything that can be cleaned up?"
C: "Clean it up"
Me: *Finds 5 extra MySQL DB's that amount to 50-60GB in total*
Me: "Well I can remove some of your extra databases, and some of the local backups, as they're also backed up offsite. They're currently unused and dated back to the beginning of 2017, everything is out of date anyways."
Me: "Okay, is there a reason?"
Me: "Okay, so we'll upgrade the VM?"
Me: "I'm sorry, but those are really your two options"
C: "Just fix it"
What in the ducking fuck !@#$#%?
If you're so fuggin smart, then why do they pay me?
I'm clearly stupid and unable to read your mind.22
Now that my ex therapist didn't terrorize me for a couple of weeks / months, I suddenly had a nightmare of him acting even more like a stalker and standing behind windows, etc.
Ow, so you use Arch Linux?
So doge, much congrats.
I use Gentoo in my NAS/MediaCenter since 2009 👌🏻😂10
Just switched to macOS High Sierra from Linux and I gotta say, really pleased so far with the experience. Everything is smooth, snappy and haven't encountered anything crashing yet.7
I recently started naming my devices in a certain scheme:
Laptop - Sagittarius (central black hole in the milky way)
Server - Sirius (brightest star visible from Earth)
Pi - Centauri (closed star system to us)
Any iot devices would be named like unnamed planets (i.e. Centauri A, Centauri B, ...)
Do some of you have cool/interesting naming schemes for your devices?17
apt-get install 'package name' -> Fails.
add apt repository
add GPG key
apt-get install 'package name' -> Fails.
add testing, contrib and non-free
sudo apt-get install 'package name' -> Worked.
portsnap fetch extract update
make clean install
Out of the two, I honestly can't see any reason why anybody would prefer the repository approach over ports.
Yes, using ports is slower, and you have to compile from sources but at least there's a single approach with FreeBSD, not dozens.
Unless you can be bothered using something like Gentoo or Slackware, I can't see any rational reason to use Linux over FreeBSD on a server platform, and I'd even seriously consider FreeBSD on a desktop if you know your graphics card is supported!
The Linux kernel is huge, the distros are overcomplicated, there are several package management tools, several documentation tools, dozens of forks of the various applications, you can never really remove any unused libraries as you might accidentally knock out another application which needs them.
I used to run Caldera many years ago - nice, slick system with very minimal bloat. The original KDE was lovely to work with (not pretty, but neither was Windows 95).
The same could be said for RedHat 5 - slick, fast, well documented and generally pretty damn nice to work with. The installer was good, if a little basic, but it worked.
Debian 4 was good too, it ran faultlessly for 5 years on a machine I used at uni, and it was really solid. It took several weeks to install and tune it properly, but it was slick.
In comparison, Ubuntu, Debian 7, CentOS (not as bad), Mint (utterly AWEFUL) are all bloated, mismatched and messy.
Then there was Mandrake, which I used to love, which then became Mandriva after a marge with Conectiva, then it turns into Mangela after a load of dev are laid off... it's just baffling!)
The ALSA/PuleAudio mess is basically cobbled together, driver support is largely oak so long as you never want to install a proprietary Nvidia driver, wifi is ok if your adapter is supported out of the box but if you need a specific firmware, you’re screwed.
If you happen to have a card for which the WPA supplicant isn’t correctly configured, you might as well ditch the card.
Every install of Linux I’ve tried in the past 5 years has had something broken on it. There’s a sliding scale of “working” from totally broken, to almost perfect.
No Linux install I’ve used has EVER hit the top end, but lately, it seems that they’re all sliding lower and lower.
Debian 6 ran beautifully on my wife’s laptop, until one day it decided to flip the screen through 90 degrees, and wouldn’t flip back. There’s no orientation sensor on it, but after an update, it decided that it was rotated and that was it.
This was a Xorg issue, as in the console it was fine.
On one of my desktops, the network device would periodically stop working - turns out a power saving mode was being activated, and I had no way to configure it other than to have another machine ping it every 5 minutes.
It’s all a mess of workarounds, with no solid fixes.
Considering that every Linux distro has essentially the same target in mind (free, powerful, well featured software), it staggers me that they’re all working toward the same goal but separately.
FreeBSD isn’t very automated, and it’s certainly not as slick an OS as many of the Linux distros, but I’ve got it set up with very few headaches, using one installation manual, and haven’t needed to google anything.
Not bashing Linux here, but it does make you think….21
Programming in a tree. I usually climb up here and read, but I decided to code, and I didn't drop my laptop :D
I covered the screen with my hand because my code's ugly, and I don't want anyone to see it lol.152
The stars have aligned,
The gods have awoken,
All the fortunes cookies I've consumed have given me fortune,
Helping the old lady cross the road gave me good karma.
I was supposed to start on an old project we had laying around today, and we had a new intern start this week.
Show up at work and i see a push from the new guy. "Refactoring". I wasn't in the office yesterday and no colleague informed me about this. Oh dear.
With freight I pull, not knowing what to expect.
BOI WAS I SURPRISED
He did one heck of a good job. Gonna buy him donuts later.2
I literally have a discussion with somebody who says C# is better than PHP, even though the person in question never even touched PHP...
Like: if you prefer C# over PHP because you actually used BOTH and just prefer C# that's completely fine... but saying C# is flat out better just because you never used PHP?
It's like saying "Coca-Cola tastes better than Pepsi" even though you never had Pepsi (disclaimer: I like Coca-Cola better, but I don't really care that much about the minor difference)11
