I spent most of today debugging the server part of my service. The logo on the page didn't show on the local Windows Server.
My first thought was that the static files path is messed up (nginx with Windows path might be confusing, is it D:/file, D:\file, or even D:\\file), so I tried playing with it. But wait, the page works, so it must be something else because css and js and even the fonts are loaded.
Could it be a cache issue? Are the images too big?
No, fuck you Microsoft, Internet Explorer doesn't show webp images. FML6
This week, they tested my backend and all hell broke lose ON THEIR SIDE. We had an emergency phone call and I proofed that it was not my fault which they even acknowledged.
Today, was a good day.1
How can you be a Server Administrator for more that 10 years when you don't know what a Terminal/Commandline is and that there's a difference between GET and POST?7
"How am I supposed to use this API? Do you expect the client to open that black thing [terminal and curl]? Why doesn't it work in the browser with clicking?"
- Apparently, I do frontend now.7
I hate this company so much. I was tasked to write a simple program wrapped in an API. They gave me freedom of choice to use any language and technology because I said it'll be deployed in docker anyway.
Now, when they gave me the server, it's Windows Server 2016, of course, without docker installed (or even supported in any way). The access is done via TeamViewer for which I receive ID and password by calling a guy.
Oh, and everything runs as admin. "It's easier that way and we always do it like this."5
So, I just learned that all clients connected with TeamViewer to the same server share all their clipboards to everybody. I now have a lot of passwords that I shouldn't have.1
Thank you very much for adding your git repo into our SVN repo. That makes everything very simple now.
I think Matlab was only invented to fuck with people. Yeah, let's start indices with 1. Oh, and set copy and paste on Ctrl+W and and Alt+Y.
You didn't save your code? Too bad, the network went down and I lost the license.3
I just trained a neural network to recognize if a word is uppercase. I'm sure it will be useful at some point.5
