No bloddy fucking way !
I cant be believe it !
I ported LineageOS to device that newer saw LineageOS support so port from scratch basically.
So i did that. The build was done in 1 day with tiny amount of patches on top of what was in repos already. Basically patches only to build it.
I got the zip and all that jam but i put it away since i believed that it woudlnt boot as its first build ever of LineageOS for this device.
Today i had to factory reset my device since AOSP10 fucked up data partition so i thought that maybe i could flash lineage just to see where we stand.
I flash it.
I see sony screen.
Wait what ?
LineageOS boot anim shows up.
Does the pass 3 times and shows me the final image of boot animation basically telling me it booted up.
OK in my head i was like OK but the UI wont load. There is no way.
I look away at my friend we have been talking with while this happened.
I look at device and see the device fully booted to LineageOS intro screen.
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK ? HOW? WHY? WHAT ?
(I totally wasnt screaming like a girl and dancing in the room when this happened. NOOO)
We were joking with the devs on different devices that it would be fun if the first build booted up since it required only 2 patches to build properly.
When i told them that the first ever build booted up they were going nuts as i was.
To be clear.
Porting usually takes hours of debugging to even get it to boot up.
Sureee not everything works as is expected. So whats broken ?
Camera, Bluetooth, NFC, Audio (Already building a fix), flashlight.
So there is fair bit of debugging still left but once audio is working then basic functions basically work and i can use the phone daily without trouble and as backup i have my old phone until rest is fixed.
This is the best day of the year i must say.8
I can't fucking believe it. 2 months ago I wrote patch to implement ability for user to change volume steps in GNOME.
Like how many steps there will be.
Didn't think it would get merged.
I just got mail that it got merged and will be included in GNOME 3.36. The bug reports for this go back as far as 7 years.
And I fixed it and added the feature under 2 hours.
Well this sure as hell is one way to make my day amazing.19
She: Do dates make you nervous?
He: Oh yes, especially when the client and server are in different timezones and I need to calculate the difference and they are in different formats and I mean why can’t everyone just use ISO8601, right?
She: Okay never mind thanks bye...8
If we ever colonize Mars or if we even go further I am already feeling sorry for the poor bloke that will have to work on DateTime library.9
Developer: We have a problem.
Manager: Remember, there are no such things as problems, only opportunities.
Developer: Well then, we have a DDoS opportunity.40
