Spent 3 days trying to find out what I'm doing wrong and why the server cannot send emails in an obsolete project (https://devrant.com/rants/1806850). I started debugging the PHPMailer SMTP library (v2.0.3 since it is the only one that works with PHP4) and found out THIS SHIT.

Kington's Law of Perforation:
If a straight line of holes is made in a piece of paper, such as a sheet of stamps or a check, that line becomes the strongest part of the paper.
The newcomer who is 35 years old starting talking about his previous jobs and he reaches a point where he says exactly this
- IBM’s AS400 is the perfect operating system that ever existed, nothing can surpass it from today’s operating systems.
I nearly screamed at him for so many reasons that I could not even start to explain and kind of blacked out from the overflow so I responded with
It's 2018 and I am forced to add new features on project that was deployed in 2003 and lastly updated at 2009.
Best part is that PHP version on the production server is [drum roll] 4.3.8. I found out that this version was the latest at July 2003. On top of that, server runs on Windows Server 2003 and the database is oracle (meaning php driver is needed).
I have spent a WHOLE WEEK just trying to recreate that environment in order to start working on the new features.
Sorry for grumping but I had to take it out somewhere.12
Am I the only one around here that nobody is asking me to make any app/system for them?
Not even by friends or family.5
1. Understand APIs without reading documentation.
2. Write correct code from first try.
3. Know to program in every language.
4. Create the perfect fully functional AI system.
5. Center objects vertically with one line CSS at target object.3
You know you are a senior developer when you go to stackoverflow with only goal to answer questions.5
Power efficiency beyond this world.
I think I got Chuck Norris's laptop.
My MacBook WILL NOT FAIL ME, AT ANY COST. It nearly died... I felt sorry for it, I had to pet it later...10
When I turn off my laptop and the mouse starts blinking because it is trying to connect to the host I imagine a young boy in the fields shouting "Papa? Daddy where are you? [Crying] Papaaa"9
Who dares to say that he/she has cracked a system of any kind for his/her own benefit?
If you are brave enough please mention what kind of system.2
You got to love linux.
But linux doesn't love anyone else.
I find it way easier to read code than ordinary text.
Am I the only one? Do I have a problem?
After the first sentence my I eyes can't focus to keep reading text. This also happens to my native language except from English.6
FEAR OF DATA LOSS
Resolution => backupS
1: external drive (or NAS)
2: cloud storage (maybe multiple services)
3: git repositories
After all these backups you are kind of demigod of data recovery...8
devRant should add a new feature to create polls
e.g. 1: What OS do you prefer?
e.g. 2: Which programming language do you prefer for web dev, mobile dev, etc.
I bet after a while a cyber war would commence. And that would be devRant's fault because it gave developers a reason to hate each other.
So devRant please disregard my request for the new feature.
Narrator: And then he laughed sardonically.4
Why nobody uses public/private key authentication for ssh and disable password auth?
Am I the only one around here doing this?15
