The EU is planning to put a law in place that prevents unlimited scrolling of media content.
I don't know how they're going to do this.
I don't know whether I support this.
I don't know who recommended this.
But it was favoured by the majority when it went to vote.45
It's a brand new year - and my first email comes in telling me the app is broken because they didn't receive any push notification (....no push notification was sent from them), the web cams don't work (....they've changed all the links to the webcams and now they're surprised it doesn't work in the app) and the app isn't available in France (the app is literally available in France).
Oh and if a user changes their font sizes in their mobile settings, it doesn't always look "very good" in the app.......5
My current project involves storing parents and children of parents in to a community database.
My current parameters include "availablechildren", "selectedchildren" and "forchildren"...and I'm worried somebody in this office is going to see this and I'm going to end up on some kind of register :S12
just got directly sneezed on in the office from someone walking behind me. Turns out he's full of a cold.
That's my November fucked then
Apple just denied my app because one of the screenshots for the app tells users that the live-data comes from the (official) company that this (official company's) app is created for.
Nice one apple....again...6
We were once tasked to create a 3-part Flash game to advertise the upcoming release of an album by a very famous band. Every part used a different gaming engine which we had to build from scratch (one of which was like a simplified version of the OG GTA game - top down driving with zooming in etc). On top of this we had to deal with user registration and score submission.
We had 4 weeks to do it in. We were 3 people.
We did an illegal number of hours to get as much done as we could, and we still didn't manage it in time because, frankly it was impossible.
Pretty good game though.1
If you're wondering how many hours of Marvel's Snap you can play on your phone per day before it melts your cpu and kills your device, it's two.
Two hours per day.
Starting of the week inside the belly of an absolute dumpster fire from hell.
Ending the week with everything completed and running well??
It's been a good week afterall.
Happy weekend everyone!
Here's to a random return to hell next Monday.
Alright, coworker is on holiday, I've got a nice manageble list of work to do.
Trailmix is in the bin
Good feels today
summer hiphop vibes and no disturbance
I have this idea for a story, but I lack graphic talent. It's always frustrated me that I can't bring the ideas in my head out in to visual form, but the programmer in me knows how to be descriptive enough.
Thanks to AI I genuinely think I might be able to make my story as a visual novel. Here's one of the first successful renders of a scene.
This might just work. I'm excited...9
Using AI to draw me a table that will look good in my small kitchen corner, just wanted to see some ideas slightly different from basic ones:
"a small table, big enough for only 2 chairs. The table sits in the corner of a room."
"the table has only 4 legs!"
"the chairs are not physically attached to the table"
"The table legs do not go through the table and in to the ceiling"
...fuck it.. I'm off to ikea1
Today, in Temu's wild and crazy online store:
Me: What are these?
Temu: Wear them inside OR outside
Me: But what are they?
Temu: They come in lots of colours
Me: But what ARE they?
Temu: only 2.77
Me: What...do they keep your arms cool..or hot?
Temu:...Better hurry...they're going fast...1
Screen design are fine, but putting a "download confirmation" link means absolutely nothing.
I can build you the button...it won't do anything or go anywhere unless you tell me what
and where a "confirmation" is....
<a href="#".....it is then.
Consecutive day number 3 of "What random dumb shit is Xcode going to pull on me today?"
today it doesn't like the ".storyboard" extension name that it created itself automatically. So that's my fault again I suppose?5

That dog story wrecked me
Telling the users of my website that the only cookie being used is the cookie that says that you've read and agreed to usage of the cookie on the website.
Can this GDPR madness end now please.25
Just finished updating a Laravel project to use page-specific dynamic JS imports using webpack mixins.
Everything feels so clean and manageable. I am zen......
I recieved a -2 on a stack overflow question because I mentioned the flutter widget that I was having issues with........2
An app I'm making for a client currently has 23 "pages" that are simply web views.
Most of those pages have A HREFS which open other pages (some external pages that I have no access to as a developer).
Additional to this, there are multiple versions of the pages depending on which language the user has selected in the app.
And nobody seems to have considered how the default back button handles all these possible eventualities (whether it can go back to previous web page, IF it was an HREF and not just JS mimicking a new page (and how would my webview even catch that), and of course IF the language hasn't changed during the user journey etc etc)
Am I wrong for being annoyed about this? Am I the dick for not developing a clean solution to it? Or am I justified because webviews have no place inside an app!
I'm sort of hoping apple deny this app due to too many web views :S8
What is the point of demanding an app if the app consists mainly of web pages?!?
And thanks for making it almost impossible for me to handle what the back button does when the user is balls deep inside of a website inside of the app.7
Just found an interesting bit of AI for developers:
Tell it to create something...5
Coming from a PHP, JS and Flutter developer:
I want to start building more websites entirely with Js frameworks. The less the better. Needs to import json data, perform ajax requests etc.
Can't decide, do I learn Vue or Svelte?6
Just remembering that time Britain started clapping for the NHS on a weekly basis, rather than giving them more money.
The longer ago in history this becomes, the more patronising it feels.4
Just saw an advert for a well known store, who are supporting Care for Children this Christmas. Nice advert.
One commentor trashed it saying "it doesn't mention anything about Jesus and it doesn't make sense". I replied with "neither does miraculous conception".
I was then called "ignorant"....
Interesting. People are...interesting.2
