Hi everyone, I have a question about VPN and hosting.
I have rpi which runs ubuntu where I have several things running like nextcloud, transmission, minidlna, samba etc.
I want to use a VPN due to torrenting via transmission on the pi. I had used private internet access(PIA) before and I'm thinking to go back to them as I had issue only once with them.
Question is if I had installed their client and connected to VPN, would I still be able to access to my services over the internet? As per my understanding only the outgoing and incoming generated from outgoing should follow the VPN tunnel, therefore interacting with my pi with it's public IP should still be possible, am I right?
I'm a newb when it comes to web stuff so any help is appreciated, also you can recommend other VPN providers if you think PIA sucks for any reason.4
Hey guys, my apple watch series 2 got broken recently. It doesn’t charge at all. It’s like electricity what’s that?
So I did all troubleshooting you can think of and all the ones on the web. Still no go.
Although some ppl reported that after a week or so their watches started charging again and didn’t have the problem anymore(which points out to some software error and once battery completely drained it kinda reset itself?). Anyway my battery is dead like nothing ever comes up on the screen anymore but still doesn’t charge.
I wanted to ask if anyone here had such problem and found a solution to it maybe?1
We were documenting a feature which has system wide affect. We’ll be delivering it to customer on Monday.
So we’ve asked the colleague who worked on it about how it works and asked few follow up questions that arise during the documenting. All were good.
Comes Friday when I had a question as some things didn’t add up and I checked the source. To my surprise the very core operation colleague explained us works in exact opposite way. I kid you not in %50 percent of the documentation we ramble about why it was implemented this way since it is faster/safer best practices bla bla.
Moreover we’ve already had some exchange with the customer and we informed(misinformed) them about this core operation...
Also changing the behavior will reduce the overall speed as it will cause extra branchings. Other option is to rewrite the documentation and inform(re-convince) the customer. If it was me I wouldn’t trust us anymore but we’ll see.
I really don’t know what to say about this fucker why would you say something if you’re not sure of it or why the fuck you didn’t confirm in the last 3 weeks....
Anyway we have a meeting on Monday morning to discuss how to proceed, that’s gonna be fun!1
I think the biggest help I provide is not answering really simple stuff and saying “google it” and hanging up the phone.
In my belief if I am to help with trivial stuff she won’t remember it next time but if she searches it or tries most logical options(which means she has to read all options and the text on the screen) she will have higher chance of remembering it or googling it without my say so.2
I fucking hate when devrant refreshes the feed when I pull down but not release my finger. Especially most of the times I already start reading the second rant but it all goes away with a flick...
Happened many times I even started changing my screen touching habits in order not to fall into this pit but still sometimes it happens and arrrgh.
I like sorting by algo and rarely use recent. I’m on ios so I’m not sure if it also happens on android but damn so annoying.3
Worked 2 weeks on hunting a memory leak on a product.
Ended up writing object tracker to find the leak(ironically it was in garbage collector). Found the leak and fixed it. It sounds cool but what I pushed was 9 lines commented out 1 line added for 2 weeks work..
Doesn’t feel very fulfilling to work for 2 weeks to comment out few lines. Only silver lining is that I might turn my object tracker into a library for colleagues to use.
P.s: not a linux or windows environment so tools like walgrind aren’t available.2
#define someError ( -1)
int func(params *param)
Spent like half and hour on debugger thinking why the fuck does it skip my statement. My manager who was passing by saw me puzzled and asked if he could help, so we spent another 10 minutes without success(tho my manager is technical guy but he had an unlucky moment I guess). Eventually senior manager saw our wtf faces and asked what is going on, it took one question for me to light the bulb "someError is a macro right?"
I guess you can imagine my embarrassment at that moment..
PS: Forgot return keyword before the error code.
It is weird how nobody calls ++ button as increment button. After all saying I incremented your rant/comment makes more sense than I ++ your....
Or do you call it increment/decrement but just write ++?5
