Went into an ikea store. For a photobox. Also got one of their remote controlled light bulbs which can change light temperature I didn't know I needed before.
2€ photobox, 30€ for the bulb and its remote.
Well done ikea.5
"improved performance through newer third party libraries"
Oh, they did a proper quality check and blackbox test in the two days the app hasn't been updated?
At least better than "we update the app regularly to continuously make the app better" copied into each changelog.
Everything has to have MAC-Addresses. EVERYTHING!
(yes, I know. That's not one. But similar)

Do you also learn more using code snippets in the Internet than from sites and wikis trying to explain specific commands?
That's pretty odd in my opinion.
Wouldn't it be clever if a programmer decides to code his programs the way so that they always use the last CPU core available?
I mean: on 8-core: CPU 7 > CPU 6 > CPU 5...
I mean, if every other program is used to start using CPU 0 and then to move upwards... This could be an advantage...5
You'll probably know that Google removed the direct image link in Image Search...
Is there a Chrome extension which brings that button back?
Should be easy to do because Google now embeds the original image on the search results page.4
A Website where the user alterts us about a defect on his printer.
There are predefined categories (things like error messages in the printer display, issues with the prints, issues with paper jams, issues with noise and so on) maybe around 10 to 20 categories.
They decide which fields are shown when the user selects it.
Should I do a Dropdown? List field? Radio buttons?
Tech: PHP, Slim Framework, fontsawesome, resulting in a mail sent to our ticket system to pre-fill form items to avoid 1st level support...1
// doesn't work.
/* nope */
<?php /* uhhh */ ?>
Only devil decided that we have to speak PHP on nearly all our comments.
Bug: attach an image to a rant, then remove it and tap add image again.
Gallery opens, devRant crashes behind
Oneplus 3T, android 8, there's no update available in play store...6
Searching for a good PHP, webdev IDE... Suggestions?
Ideally free software with debugging and code syntax checks.11
Pharmacy... Preorder-mail got stuck in spam due to weird receiver passphrases so they didn't actually order it (it was "banana" followed by an steadily incrementing number). You wouldn't believe their faces after they saw my mail.
It took the pharmacy exactly ONE HOUR to get that medicine after I went up getting them to know that they missed an order. They express ordered it after I guess I signaled the urgency...
That's one of the pretty great things in Germany. If you need medicine and if you're in a medium populated area, you could get it within hours, or at least in 1/2 day if they not express the order and you order over their website.
But this is attacked due to European trade deals. Online pharmacy shops (the ones without local pharmacies) simply trade in from cheaper areas in Europe and can sell much cheaper. Also because they aren't committed to cross finance local hospital medicine delivery which then let's the health insurance raise their prices.
But due to the law for the minimum wage and therefore steadily decreasing wages the online-only pharmacies get more and more of the market cap....
Such problems aren't easy to fix...1
Got the chance to get into developing a monitoring frontend...
Imagine the step in between if your previous task was *phone up*, *translating consumer problems into consultants problems*, *phone down*
What's the most paralelized end user application you came across? I mean not that obvious things like gimp or photoshop, maybe things you experienced are just more speedy because they actually use the 8 to 16 threads of a modern CPU in full?1
This is simply beautiful. Visualized sorting algorithms using colors.
Just discovered it on twitter (@galka_max)
If you have capped mobile data, search for WiFi first. Could be pretty much data...
Watch them here:
The videos and gifs pretty much disable any compression technique.
Attached is their merge sort example heavily compressed from 16 to 5 megabytes to fit devRant's limits...4
They laugh at me when I'm still using windows batch scripts.
I ask them how to check the cpu architecture within a batch, to check whether administrator rights are present and if not, enabling the default windows admin and create another admin over the default admin. I ask them how they'd set a registry key within a batch...
They don't have any idea...3
Searching for the best mousepad in terms of most silent mouse movement... No idea what it could be. Plastic ones are noisy, aluminium depends on the mouse and textile is most times no noise difference...
Any ideas? Same for keyboards. The most silent keyboard without loosing keypress feelings...
German "deutsche Bahn" 6 days after a storm... Red and crossed means that it it isn't coming at all.8
Do you have storms that way that public transport trains aren't moving for multiple days? Almost entirely northern Germany is without trains for the last 5 days....2
Trainee accidentally said md5 is an encryption... Gave him the "functional specification of OpenPGP on ISO Smartcards". He learns OpenPGP now, before he reads that I hope.
Can you think of how weird it would be that someone greets you with the word "Moin"? Welcome to northern Germany...11
Senior dev. "we need a reason why we haven't fully implemented social service signup yet"
Junior dev. "let's say it's new for us"
Senior. "great idea. Let's get this done."

Reading financial advisors: "you should have saved your annual income at the age of 30 if you want to retire at the age of 67"
*swallows on my own spit*
I guess my life is senseless from now on.1
Me: "can we go to the cinema this weekend?"
gf: "uhm, maybe if blablabla..."
Please excuse: This is my first step into python. So consider this a beginners question:
This forked script checks a twitter page for words and sends a mail (probably using .qmail) to the owner.
If I execute this python:
"[$USER@$HOST uberspace-downtime-notify]$ python fetch.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "fetch.py", line 11, in <module>
ImportError: No module named html
Similar errors are fixed in this github commit https://github.com/datalib/... - but that's a more complex script and I don't quite get where the imported module is needed (on a code basis - on the logical basis all is clear)
Any idea for a guy with his first steps into python and back into programming languages since some years=5
My system needs 2 gb of RAM when 4 gb is installed and 6,5 GB when 16 GB is installed. Any ideas? Running idle system, just everything I usually use.9
