Client comes to me after a year to publish an update to his app.
I accept, start looking for my release key.... Found it.
Fuuuuuuucccck what's the password? I can't remember
Googled what to do if forgot password of keystore: Nope can't do shit other than brute Force. You've to forget your app and publish as a new app. Nice.
I must have written it somewhere... I'm sure. Check my password manager: Nope.
Start brute forcing:
Default pass: android. Nope
Name of app? Nope
After 10 mins of brute forcing:
Why would I not store the password in my password manager? The only reason I can think is the password is too stupid to be stored.
Try "password". App signed successfully.
I'm ashamed of 1 year older me xD9
Which podcasts do you guys listen to? I've listened to syntax.fm and devrant podcasts and both are amazing.3
I accidentally stumbled upon the devrant podcast and oh my God, it's so freaking awesome! Such great advice for devs. Looking forward to new episodes!2
Writing clean code.
Writing useful comments.
Commit before experimenting.
Just anything to prevent Technical Debt. Just because it works doesn't mean it should be kept as is. Later down the line you'll need to add a new feature and you'll spend 2x more time fixing the things you took for granted.
What's the most cost effective way of hosting a Lamp stack website? I have a pretty basic website with less than 50 viewers per week.
I am so confused with all the options: GCP, Amazon lightsail, Ec2, godaddy, heroku, etc.
What would you guys recommend for such a small website? Currently, I've hosted it on Ec2 for the first year but I don't think that's cost effective at all after the first year.4
Why are programmers not allowed in the Intensive Care Unit?
Because they like to turn stuff off and on again1
Today while trying to fix a bug, an actual bug came flying through the window and sat on my laptop. When I tried to make it flee, it went inside my laptop through the vent.
I guess now I have two bugs to deal with.2
I've done 24hr - 36hr hackathons twice and won't recommend it to anyone XD. The toll it has on your body is huge. I literally felt I lost 1 year of my lifespan going through that hackathon. Lots of coffee and tea. Felt sleepy and had a headache for 2-3 days after that2
I'm so happy today. Fixed a bug that was haunting me for weeks. My ionic app was working on Android, the browser, the toaster,... Everything but an iPhone. I thought it was an issue with iOS and this bug really messed with me.1
So here's the story about a big Fuck up by a TRAI chief in India
He posted an open challenge on twitter:
"Here's my 12 digit Aadhar card (social security no for Indians) number. Show me if you can do any harm to me. "
And Twitter obliged, a French hacker aliased @fs0c131y (Elliot Alderson) took the challenge and he started posting his phone number, email, and other personal stuff on twitter.
Still the official thinks he's safe and no harm has been done to him! He openly says, "Even if you get my bank account no what can you do?"17
So I was looking for an internship online and I came across this. How can someone expect so much from a student? The stipend is only (₹5000) i. e. $70/month.
Most of the companies on this site are basically treating jobs as student internships looking to get work done at cheap rates.
Need some advice

My classmate asked me to remotely download and install Java jdk for him via teamviewer. He's in 3rd year Computer Engineering...
I went to a hackathon and I was surprised to see that the judge was a fellow devranteer himself! Saw many people with devrant Stickers on their laptop! The community is spreading...9
Developing a website for mobile feels like a pain the back to me. Can anyone recommend any good tutorials?
I can design basic sites for desktop screens but I have problem making them work for mobile. I don't know the right approach. Should I add a bunch of @media queries? Or should I use relative measures like em? It's so confusing.
A teacher who came to see if I'm programming correctly asked me to start my curly braces on a new line like
because where the fuck did you learn the other version
" that's just wrong"30
One day a developer's phone accidentally fell into his toilet. The poor developer looked at the toilet but couldn't find it as it was too late.
Finally he burst into tears. Hearing his sobs, an Angel appeared before him.
The Angel dived into the toilet and came up carrying a golden phone. The developer did not accept it. He said, "This is not mine. My phone is not golden."
To which the Angel replied, "It's not golden, it's covered in shit!"2
Our university syllabus is so outdated, we are forced to do C programs in TurboC.
So we install Dosbox on Windows 8 machines...

In the game Civilization, Gandhi had a aggression rating of 1 which means he didn't declare war on anyone. Now whenever someone Researched Democracy their aggression rating dropped by 2. Now instead of it dropping to - 1, it caused an integer underflow and the aggression rating became the highest possible value, making Gandhi into a nuclear warlord. He nuked everyone!22
