Updated to pop_os 19.04
Xorg stuck on a login loop.
Checked the basics, still failed.
Guess who has a fresh Pop_os 19.04 install?7
Have no Degree (the paper, I did study), currently doing a master to actually get the damn paper.
Have been working with a good pay for a few years now.
The Degree will help pass some HR filters on the dumbest companies, but sometimes you do want to work there.
The degree does nothing in the new professional word in this profession.
BUT sometimes, a degree gets you information that you will not get on your own that help you grow faster. Talking about the basics that everyone says are useless... But they are not.1
Do you guys remember a website named something like "turn off your tv" that suggests 'smart' videos to watch?
I need that in my life again.3
So, need to secure some requests.
I decided on going passwordless on the website but I want to have an API too.
I am reviewing auth0.
I am also not sure if I can secure the same endpoints as private and public differently, so the private is used by the backend with no auth and the public with auth.
Wold you guys help me with some reading material?2
Talked to recruiter, they praised I know ruby, said I needed to do a code test in ruby.
I was given 1 hour to complete 5, exercises in a codefight like thing.
1 exercise had C as the only lang option.
2 more had C and Python.
The last two has ruby too, they were permutation exercises that never completed within the time restriction (that was probably on me, but they did complete on my local ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )
I told them about all this, I failed, no second chances, no explanation, no nothing.2
So many forked processes curling webpages to get response status that I exausted my bandwidth... I need a server with good connection -_-
I see lots of ranting about bosses or team members.
My boss values me a lot and my team is open to discussing amd value my opinion.
What the fuck to I rant about? fml3
Just had a discussion with a support person, it seems I need or use safari or opera OS to be able to watch a recording of an open class I has.
The platform they jse works on with flash (fucking hate it), and it seems linux is not supported because I need to install flash.
I was just reporting a stupid bug, I am watching these on my phone and staying away from installing flash.
Spent about 40 minutes trying to figure out why my stupid events were not tracked, something about CORS
so digged into the htaccess file and added the correct headers but the header value was being appended although i was setting it.
So I figured the "tool" i am using is setting it too but only when I set it, that was weird.
So on to to its github I went, someone mentioned there is a CORS setting in the UI, so I added the domain i wanted to allow and done, it fucking works.
Read the documentation kids, sometimes it is useful.
So I made a repo to have a template to initialize node projects.
I copied the folder to a new folder and found all commits where there but I wanted to start fresh.
Quick googling on how to just start fresh ... then I realized I might just delete the .git folder, see what happens.
Then BAM! All fresh,
git add .
git commit -m "first! Template set"
Life is easy sometimes.
I am trying to get this new is shit together, I am struggling with grasping polyfill, all the npm install shit.. for a front end thing.
Do I really need npm and polyfill?
I have read some quickstarts on this but all of them look like backend stuff to me.
I am planning on using Vue and vuetify
Any link to a good resource to read will be appreciated.3
Working on a xslt just to change a single character in an invoice. The system I use does not have the euros sign...
Because fuck manually editing the pdf every month.
Needed to download all my music from Google music, their download manager is crap (on ubuntu)
Decided to use their API, found a gem that works perfectly. Started downloading it.
Told my GF how I wanted to code something cool but gound someone else did, her response:
So why doesn't google make something ?
Me:They did, but it sucks in linux, and they have their API's which work fine.
And how are normal people supposed to make it work then?
Me: well it works, jut have to install this and run the CLI with.... wait.. am I not normal?
I guess we are not normal in the eyes of some people.18
Decided to update ruby because why not, been at it for hours.. i just wanted ti code something simple :(
I am almost done
Decided to fresh install ubuntu due to unexpected freezes, now I am stalling the Budgie flavor because J reaally wanted Solus.. but they still lack support for a lot of packages.
Well, now I have to set it up and its 12 am.. good for me.6
So my time saver automation can not be used because automation is not reliable.
Yeah sure make me extract data manually from 800 urls by hand and see if there is no human error.
Fuck my life.5
