Just updated my motherboards bios and didn't think to fucking backup the fucking uefi settings so now it won't fucking detect fucking grub or windows boot manager fucking fucking fucking cunt2
I may love apt but fuck me, the amount of times I've gotten told that the process is currently locked is making me go bat shit crazy -,-7
Well... This look's fine...
(This is supposed to be my dev terminal not some twat mix of random colours...)
Just spent 30 minutes trying to work out how to do my dev terminals rendering in it's main for loop...
Only now just realised I should probably use 2 seperate for loops and rendering layers for the background and text... Well done dickhead
Built a software portal that tied in with our schools user management systems (fuck that shit btw, was written in Java that tied back to a JS backend) and I couldnt get password verification working probably so put a test in that just let you put the username in and whatever password and as long as the user wasn't currently in use you login correctly (only used it to track download limits and display the student's name)
Planned on fixing it the following week when my contract was supposed to renew, but they never renewed it and every time they have had me come back I haven't had the chance to fix it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯5
Not sure if this will be an unpopular opinion but unity8 was probably the best looking and most modern looking desktop environment to date...
Followed close by pantheon...15
So one of my friends has just had a child and it's already a month old...
Was thinking to myself what I've done this past month... Started 4 new projects, cancelled 3 of them already and drank 3 slabs of beer to myself...
Think I know who has had a better time...
*Cries salty Dev tears*6
Going to put my 2 cents on the Microsoft to use chromium based back ends.
I would personally prefer if Microsoft did a fork of the modules they are using and custom tailor them more, just that way edge will still be what it is but will have a much more matured backend (you can't deny Google has made more progress than Microsoft in this respect).
I agree that it is bad for Microsoft to go to chromium but it's an up hill battle for them to get edge as a legitimate competitor for Firefox and Chrome with as little maturity that it has3
Was at a party the other day and was talking to some randoms and they asked me about programming and said it must be fun and fast paced to do it on your own...
All I did was smile and told them I have spent 10 days trying to decide on 16 colour codes for a part of the software the average consumer will never even see...
Game development everybody!4
Finally selling my gtx 1070 and going to swap to AMD, just wanting to know if anyone has heard anything about the RX 590 finally playing nice with linux?
Heard it was causing a lot of issues, just don't want to buy it and have more problems than I am with NVIDIA at the moment!13
Windows... Why is your auto time setting so dog shit!
Its always either an hour early or late except earlier today it was apparently December 9th at 6AM when it was 10AM on the 5th...
Like it even got the correct timezone yet still can't get a simple concept like time correct... Fucking hell...
(The time is one hour ahead in this image and this legit made me arrive to pick someone up an hour early)4
Started playing skyrim again (Special edition on xbox one x) and fuck me does it make me feel inadequate as a game developer...
I'll never be able to make something anywhere near as gorgeous or absorbing, *sigh* why does everything I love make me hate myself
EDIT: Please save the bethesda jokes, your opinion is noted and ignored :-36
... huh... That wasn't expected...
(Although makes a lot of sense when you read the article)
Fucking hell my Chromebook is a confusing little cunt...
I use the Samsung Chromebook plus with a 64 bit based ARM CPU but the chromeOS installation is 32 bit... Buuuuuut it will prefer 64 bit android applications and runs the Linux container at 64 bit!
How does that even fucking work?!?!
(Yes I know Google blah blah, privacy blah, your opinion is noted and ignored ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)3
Need some dev feedback here, went to twitter and got nothing and thought here is probably the best place...
I'm working on a dev terminal for my game engine and I'm building a basic app development for it (CLI and CLGUI) but not sure if I should allow for full RGB via Hex or should I just stick with the standard CGA 16 colour pallet...
And I'm thinking of building a basic scripting language that will transpile into an obfuscated JSON structure (Mostly because I have a lot of experience at building systems that use JSON as a scripting language) but just want to know if anyone could recommend things to try2
Chose going to a 21'st I didn't want to go to instead of drinking at home and working... Half regretting this...
Send a fellow dev help1
So according to google domains I just put in a transfer request 5 days in the future... Fuck me I need to learn to contain these powers...30
I am so fucking happy with the windows October update!
Never thought I'd be able to say the stable windows 10 builds are more unstable and prone to fatal errors than a rolling release Linux distro, now if only more Devs would port there fucking software to Linux *eye twitches*7
Forgive me devrant for I have sinned... I'm going to use a website builder to design my businesses website...
(No it's not word press, I may be a fool but I at least have standards)14
Thinking about dropping Google cloud console and Google domains and just go back to namecheap, just pay the $80 a year to have them host it and not have to worry about the server's and databases personally...
Anyone else got good recommendations other than namecheap?8
Ok... Able to pry myself away from fallout 76 and fire up for some programming...
Van't decide whether I want to build my game engines debug and root dev tools how I thought, thinking of building the engine to almost behave like a VM but not quite, it still is compiled just like a normal game but has a built in developer terminal that actually acts like an extra operating system/BIOS that can be left to boot the games assets and everything like you would have for an end user or the startup can be interupted to initialise the terminal prior to everything being loaded...
Following the osdev Wiki tutorials to actually build the dev terminal itself but just unsure whether or not to impliment this system the way I think or not... Opinions?1
Can anyone recommend a good OSS NVIDIA driver?
Was using nouveau but didn't realise how out of date it was, currently using the proprietary NVIDIA driver and it's really causing some havoc20
So... Google Chrome on Android got an update (just reset my phone so maybe some funky Google roll out) and... I don't know how I feel...
I love it so much but hate it at the same time...9
Stroking my own pickle a bit with this one but pretty excited that a YouTube video I did in one take and am not entirely happy with my explanations hit 1000 views... Really should make another one aye...
Dear tech YouTubers, fucking stop trying to justify the iPad pro as an actual pro device that can replace a laptop for everyone...
Yes you can make music, yes you can draw and yes you can watch content...
Can you have multiple windows?
Can you write code and natively compile?
Can I use a mouse?
Can I power multiple displays with seperate apps?
Yes it's powerful but it's still an iPad, just because you made a bigger screenee phone doesn't mean you can claim it as a full PC replacement... Cunts -,-
(Would like to point this out mostly to Johnathan Morrison for that video showing off a single person using the iPad for a singular purpose, pissed me off more than anything!)17
