I don't believe in supernatural stuff but sometimes I feel like the universe does not want me to do something.
I try to download a repo and wifi just goes poof!
I try using my mobile data and right at that time, there is no service!
I somehow manage to download over a few days' time and my hard drive fucking crashes!!
I mean WHAT THE FUCK!!!!3
Alright. This one's interesting.
We were building an android application which had some heavy lifting. Boss asked why app lags on his device but runs fine on other devices of same make.
The bug made no sense. The same code, same hardware, same os, everything same, except Boss's device had a thick protective case.
I stopped checking app logs and instead started logging thermal logs. And voila! It was CPU throttling at 70°C.
All i did was remove the cover and done.
Proudest bug solved without code.2
Whereever I go, snapchat ads everywhere,
I install the app, launch it once, uninstall.
Whereever I go, snapchat ads no where.10
If the HR asks you to not disclose your salary with others, most likely you are the one getting paid less.
Discuss your salaries. Know your worth.8
How does one write a research paper when they don't really have a solid academic background?
via employer is out of question as well7
I have done my research but haven't found anything yet. Asking here.
Is there an android library that helps you build dashboards easily? Like cards that host other interfaces? Graph, Image, Text etc.
If not, would you be interested if there was one?8
I deleted 13 of my old projects today. These started out great but died a tragic death. I just couldn't commit, in both ways.
Most of them were attempts to reinvent the wheel, few silly ideas and few promising ones but trapped under self doubt.
Therefore, From today I resolve to always build to take projects to stable production and to not try to reinvent the wheel again. More stress on the second part.
Let's see how this goes.2
If you get rickrolled ever again, use this:
It unrickrolls you. Stay safe out there.1
You ever read up an old post on devrant and you see users replying back to comments that no longer exist?
@s without an underline, half baked stories without a context.
Voids in a crowd.2
Just got off call with someone looking for a cofounder
Person: There is no defined requirement, the cofounder must do whatever is needed to get the business to grow.
Me: Okay, what is it that you are building?
Person: It doesn't matter. Software deployment is secondary. If you get on board, you have to be willing to do whatever it takes!
Me: Alright? Lets suppose I have onboarded, what am I supposed to do now?
Person: We need a chatbot.7
I want to start an online course that teaches you how to ride a bicycle.
Just for the sake of satire.
Pretty sure it will get sign-ups and people will flaunt their certificates.4
When I was a newbie to tech world I though Linus from LinusTechTips was the one who made Linux.
I was mildly surprised when I found out that two people can have the same name..2
Listen up devs:
The SpaceX astronaut launch was a practical demonstration of how the right marketing can uplift even a seemingly late project. Nailing marketing will also build up your brand and improve your product's reception for it's users.
Ok, I am out.1
Research pro tip:
If you are looking for a research paper to read and the paper is behind a paywall and is also not available on scihub, Reach out directly to the author.
There's a high chance that you will get the paper from the author as they barely get anything from paywall systems anyway.2
Boss before client meeting:
Boss: So sudocode, how are we planning to do this?
Boss during client meeting:
Boss: So sudocode, you should do it like this *explains the stuff I told him a minute ago*.
'I hope you understood!'
Me: ... *sigh*
So glad I am leaving this shit show soon.13

Fuck off already !!5
Searching for a real-time header-only plotting library for C++ on Ubuntu.
Yes that's oddly specific!
Can't use matplotlibc++ (reasons),
Can't use Win32api based libraries,
Can't use QT based libs cause project is commercial,
Can't use GNUplot cause documentation is outdated,
Can't use ROOT (cern) cause its bloated! (~200Mb +)
It seems I have already exhausted all options.
Looking for suggestions in case I missed something.6
And just like that google pushed a change to subscription service that basically now sends purchaseList even when a user is not subscribed.
And what that fucking means is that now all my users (1.3k+) enjoy free fucking premium without paying a cent!!!!
Fuck u google...
My rage is so high I cannot process it...11
Just got my first premium subscriber
I am happy :)
Listened to my own advice :
Everytime I have started ownership transfer in Bitbucket and backtracked mid way, Bitbucket has experienced a global incident in pipelines.
What are the odds I am responsible?
Q: Why did the C developer wear glasses?
A: Cause he had fucking myopia bob! Not everything in about programming! Get your head out of your ass!5
That moment when you come across an amazing repo with last commit 7 years ago
Hurts right in the meow meow (~_~;)7
For an IDE as popular and as recommended as Code Blocks, don't you think its barely usable or at least stable?
Or am I using it wrong? What's the catch?!16
Yeah go ahead and make yet another covid-19 dashboard app which fucking scrapes from the same source just like every other of 1000s of covid-19 dashboards!!
Lets organise a zoom call ( or whatever) for devrant but everyone must use their real names.
<This rant will be deleted subject to reception>12
One of the best things ever created in the history of savagery:
(Let me get that for you)
Like: Don't know where to learn programming? But can't do a simple google search? We have a solution.
Just go to :
