That moment when the CEO changes code out of nowhere, gives you the repo in a hard drive and asks you to merge to remote.
I am starting to see red flags in the new place I joined 6 months back. The environment is practically non-existent cause its a 14 personnel company. The problem is the founder does not listen! Like every fucking thing you suggest, ask or question is immediately dismissed! And I work directly under him!
Also I just got a 20 minute lecture on passion, commitment, patriotism and why I should forego my festival leaves coming next week when I mentioned that the approach we are seeing work was something I suggested long back but was not considered! And yes I am in office on weekend!
FFS can I not get a single normal fucking workplace in my whole fucking career to work peacefully!!!2
If I had the same level of dedication as my workplace for my personal projects, oh boiii would I be a millionaire!1
I stumbled upon one of those internet mysteries.
What really happened here? No one knows...
WayBackMachine has nothing as well!
KolourPaint is hands down THE FUCKING BEST PAINT SOFTWARE EVER CREATED! No arguments!
It has everything a terrible artist like me can ask for:
1, Image Transparent Tool : ✓ (its magical!)
2, Drawing Tools : ✓
3, Monochrome conversion: ✓
4, Grayscale Conversion : ✓
5, Image resize : ✓
6, Touch of nostalgia : ✓
It's so good I feel like donating the hell out until I go broke! Ughhh!!!!!8
My co-worker got removed from the team in the most unprofessional way. We all gathered for daily stand-up at 7 PM in the evening and everyone took turns to discuss cards assigned to them. When it came to my co-worker, he was simply not part of the board. All his cards removed, all his git/jira access revoked by asshole manager simply because he questioned his poor approach and his 'vision' (read lack of). He told to HR that his part of the work is done which I informed them was a lie.
Jerk guy didn't even have a discussion with him after that, totally left in dark with all the access revoked and nowhere to go.
I resigned next week. Co-worker is doing great now. Good Riddance.1
POJO : Plane Old Java Object
You have been cursed now,
you cannot unsee it EVER....4
Is your train really late if you already know that it's late and then adjust accordingly to reach on time for a train that is late?5
A colleague who showers himself with a strong perfume every half hour or so.
Take a bath dude! Stop burning our noses!
Dev : I swear it works on my device!!
Manager : Okay! Then we will ship your device..
And that my friend is the story of how docker was born5
That moment when an update goes right!
This data is such an insightful thing to have!
The dashed lines are when an update is pushed, blue line is number of active devices3
Me : *Logs in to Microsoft account to delete account*
MS: Eeeeeeeee, Add a recovery email or a number!!
Me: Wth! I want to delete my account, why would I give details of one more account.
*sees there is no skip button*
*Opens temp mail and gives temp email*
MS: Eeeeee, Now add recovery phone number!!!
Me: What the actual fuck!! No!
*Refreshes and its gone*
Me : *clicks on delete account*
MS: Eeeeee, we are sad , you will loose all data. also your synced device won't start unless you set 'reset protection' to 'disable'.
Me: Hmmmm, deceptive, how do I disable this reset protection.
MS: click here : link
Me: *Clicks to open devices, there is no fucking option called reset protection*
*Dafuq!! You wanna get complicated? Ok! Fine!! Get this now!
*Removes the account from every fucking thing from my system, one drive, store and what not*
*Disable this shit now*
MS: ok, disabling, please check the security code on your temp email!
Me: Glad I didn't close the temp email tab, here, do your shit now!
MS: Are you sure?
MS: Really sure?
Me: ..... Yes
MS: We have flagged for deletion, but if you want to activate back click on the only button we show you on the entire screen.
Me: I know these games of yours. They stand no chance in front of my awareness!!
I fucking loose it when companies throw hurdles in your way when you want to delete your account.
It's true that no one wants to loose a customer but making it difficult to leave ensures you never get that customer back.
Yes I am talking about you microshit piece of shit!!4
Any task that starts with 'just' is one of these:
1, An underestimated problem not understood well.
2, An order to complete a task without considering the points of the developer.
3, Nike advertisement.3
I have one experience where a guy reached out to me on LinkedIn for an excellent opportunity, so I assumed it would have to do something with an upcoming startup and the guy is looking to onboard me if things go right.
The guy was from a tech and managerial background as shown on his profile. So 5 minutes into our skype call and he says:
He : "Before I detail you this excellent opportunity for passive income, tell me why I should work with you? "
Me : Is this some sort of pyramid scheme?
He : Not exactly but similar..
Me: No, I would not like to be scammed, Thank you for your time.
< Disconnect >
And that was the first and last time I responded to a message that talked vague opportunity bs.
Oh Thank You for such a helpful feedback! I have added images of kittens in next update of my audio processing application. Hopefully you will like them?1
Call this exploitation, nativity or social hacking but whenever I wanna buy something online be it some stuff or flight tickets, I just casually search on google and other platforms and wait for a discount to come my way.
Have saved a few thousand bucks this way. Putting big brother to work.3
So someone earned $8.82 by contributing to my open source project. I am not even mad, that's amazing! How do people even find those ways?
Got to know when I saw my project listed on busy.org, don't know how that works though.22
Chalked out a TD game idea for android and there are two paths I can take:
1, Use Canvas (quick development)
2, Use OpenGL (relatively longer development)
What would be the correct path?
The most computation will go for bullet physics and collision check, overall the graphics are very primitive like circle, line on a canvas, no animations in background, etc etc... you get the idea.
Is the investment in learning OpenGL worth the time ?16
You know what doesn't bother me?
Not knowing something and letting the concerned know that you don't know a few things. It's perfectly fine, no one knows everything! Totally fine!
What really bothers me is when I ask you a million fucking times if you know git and you fucking lie and mess up the entire branch and boil my blood with senseless commit messages!! And after all this have the audacity to say you know git cause you did a crash course right after I asked you the first time if you know git you lying piece of shit!!!3
Saving asses since like forever.
Those who understand know what I am saying.3
Genuine appreciation ahead:
I really like how considerate and humane the Huawei health app is. The sleep monitoring and the suggestions are right on point with tiny bits of extra information ( like listen to nature sounds)
Gotta sleep now..
P.s.: There is nothing good about sleep deprivation, it's bad and very unhealthy. Always take adequate sleep.6
The word 'slack' must not be used as a verb.
Person : Can you please slack me?
Me : Ummm ok, I will send you on slack...
Avoid those awkward moments. Stay alert!12
