Vagrant, VMware and CentOS.
The perfect storm to drive me mad all day.
If anyone knows how to get the shared folders working in this fucking shitstorm of arse rain let me know I'm slowing drowning in this fucking river of shit.4
Any recommendations for a decent free web host service?
I'm using plain html with no databases.
My current host seems to be having issues with ftp.8
So since starting my new role I have had nothing to rant about. That changed today.
HR waited til one day past payroll cut off to issue my paperwork. Meaning I get paid at my old rate this month and then get back pay in my November pay slip.
Those mother cunting bastards waited one day extra to screw me for the whole month.
I've been waiting since the end of September for these twat monkeys to get off their rotting arses and sort this and they do it one day late.
It's a good job that I don't know where they are located, nothing good would be waiting for them if I did.
As this got cut from the tags:
HR please kindly go find a rotting puss filled dick and shove it up your lazy fucking arse you pitiful wastes of human meat bags.1
So lately I've been seeing a lot of hate towards languages like C, C++ and java.
Someone at work literally said go would replace C++ and that anyone still using it is a dinosaur.
He said no one uses this languages anymore.
Am I just being left behind or are most real time devs not using C et al anymore.
I mean c++ has a 2017 update and we work with devices for aviation and the like that need to be certified I don't see go becoming our main language anytime soon.
I'm not saying go isn't a good language I'm just saying the others aren't at the point where we take them out back and shoot them.21
So my ISP decided it was ok for them to log into my router remotely and re enable the wifi.
I turned it off for a reason and no your excuse that it will improve my upload speed is bullshit you stupid patronising fucking shithead.
I'm now seriously looking into cancelling my service with you because you don't respect your customers or their wishes.
Also I'm guessing there's a default backdoor password into the router as I changed all the passwords I could find. Meaning the whole thing is horribly insecure.11
Creating a custom arch Linux live usb.
Need install media with lts kernel and thought I'd go full hog with x/i3 and some of my apps/configs.
Wish me luck.8
Why are HR so slow.
Transferring to new role, just waiting for paperwork.
Endlessly waiting for paperwork.
I can't take much more of this.
I swear excel is fucking with me.
Use a formula to generate an array, all good.
Use same formula but passed into vba function, different set of data.
All of the ranges are hard set with $, if I use the formula in another cell the results are correct.
I hate Microsoft and my workplace for making me use this shit.
Stop wasting time setting up continuous integration environment and get on with real work.
2 days later: why aren't we using continuous integration, the plan says we have to.
I'm in the process of installing Windows 98 on an old ultra portable.
166mhz, 32MB of ram, 10GB hdd.
What should i install next?
Linux is not a possibility at the moment I'm only interested in Windows and DOS for this right now.
Suggestions in the comments22
Seriously is kivy just lacking documentation on purpose.
You want a tutorial will just look at these apps other people have made I'm sure that will help.
No looking at some game code doesn't give me any ideas on how to create a basic form or a nav drawer.
Seriously are we supposed to fucking guess?
At this point it would be easier to write a gui framework than learn kivy.5
Always check the licence when you include a new library.
Very nearly GPLed a large amount of commercial code by not checking this in one of my first projects out of uni.
Luckily someone else noticed and the library in question turned out to be dual licensed so it turned out ok in the end.
Just took an online C++ test as part of a job application.
Pass mark was 5.
I haven't used c++ for two years. What do you think my chances are for going forward?
Feeling really nervous about it.3
Any recommendations for a C/C++ IDE for Linux.
I really like PyCharm and IntelliJ for python and java but can't afford to splash out on CLion for C++.
Eclipse is completely out, I have too much of that at work and it is a total pain.
My current solution would be vim and clang but I'd like something more IDE like.10
Just got an email accusing me of not implementing a feature that is quite clearly implemented.
It's not my fault if your too stupid to #include my header file. Did you just expect the compiler to magically find the functions for you.
Also thanks for raising this with my team lead and his boss.
May you spend eternity in a cold ditch coding java script on a 386 with a 28k modem you disgusting fuck nugget.5
A long time ago in a decision poorly made:
Past me: hmm we're having trouble getting IT to give us a new build machine with the new compilers.
Past me: I know we'll just use one of the PCs that belongs to a member of the team to tide us over.
[2 months pass]
Present me: that's odd, Jenkins is really slow today.
[Several minutes pass]
Present me: holly shit fuck; it's building the whole weekends worth of builds at 9am on a workday and eating licenses like a cast away that suddenly teleported to an all you can eat buffet.
Present me: [abort, abort, for the love of fuck abort]
Present me: contacts IT, they can't find any problems, wtf happened.
Present me: discovers team member turned off his machine on Friday and builds had been stacking up all weekend.
Lessons learnt: disable power button on team members pc and hire a tazer guy to shoot whenever someone goes near the wall socket.
1 hour lost and no build results for the last 3 days.
It's looking like a bad morning
Someone just overwrote 2 weeks of work in SVN because they don't understand merging.
When they did an update before committing they ignored the conflicts and tried to build their work.
But wait it won't build if their are conflicts, I know I'll just copy this backup over the checkout and check that in instead.
It took me over an hour tho fix this fucktard's mistake and I still don't think they understand what they did wrong. Their supposed to have 40+ years of experience.
In the end it turned out they wanted to change about 10 lines. They had checked in files that they didn't even change, they were just out of date compared to trunk.4
So one of our sub teams had issues with me splitting a single function in two to help implement a feature that should be in their component in the first place.
All I did was suggest it as a possible solution and got a nasty email in response with my boss left off of the recipients list but my bosses boss listed instead.
Apparently we needed a meeting to suggest the idea of suggesting a new idea and three to four weeks to decide if we should implement it.
This sub team constantly complains that we don't approach them but at the same time makes themselves the most unapproachable group of people on the project.
Is anyone else getting issues with bitbucket begging slow and unresponsive. Just failed two Jenkins jobs because of this.
How come the cat pet is on the floor?
From my experience they should be sleeping on the keyboard or sitting on top of the mouse.
@dfox, @trogus: I would suggest swapping this around. The cat should be on the desk all other items should be on the floor. I feel this would more accurately depict typical cat ownership.6
Company requests that I do overtime to meet deadlines, I start working overtime, a week later I get an email "clarifying" the rules for overtime. None of which I have complied with because I didn't know about the fucking rules because they never told me about them.
Now they will "try their best" to put the hours through for me but they can't promise anything.
That's 10 hours of my life I probably won't get back, just glad I didn't do more now.5
