Everyone Needs a Micophone2020-07-02
I hate listening to someone in a meeting without a mic.
Hasn't everyone already realized it's annoying when someone else doesn't have mic?
Buy a mic!
One thing that really pisses me off at work is when someone messages me about some error and they clearly haven't tried to debug the issue themselves.
I had someone message me about an issue due to a syntax error in their code, that they made!
The line number containing the error was right there in the trace!
They clearly didn't even look at the error, they just messaged me immediately.
Waste of my damn time man.
I should have hit em with a "What have you already tried?"
I wonder if there is a point in time when we can point to reddit becoming facebook.
Many default subreddits (funny, pics) look like facebook feeds.
Stupid pictures of people's kids (no one cares, it's not funny or cute) and other uninteresting junk.
Can I filter all accounts created after 2015?
We need a replacement, but it stops accepting new accounts once it reaches the number of users that reddit had in 2015.
I noticed that at the start of every video meeting, the host always says "Let's wait a few more minutes for more people."
Every host always says some form of that sentence.
Don't we all know by now that we will start like 2 minutes after the start time?
Don't say anything for 2 minutes.
Don't be a sheep!
I love when someone complains about TDD.
Cause then I know they're stupid.
With TDD, you write a test, then write the logic to make the test pass, then you know your feature/change works.
If you're unable to write the test first, you are starting to code before you have even thought about what you're trying to achieve and how.
Think before you type.
There are many upcoming programming languages in their pre 1.0 phase, and some "newish" languages that have gained some real traction.
Which languages will survive? I'll tell you.
I find it so odd when people lie on their resumes or try to apply for a job they are clearly unqualified for.
I wonder how often these people actually get hired.
The crazy things I've seen
There are way too many blog posts about missing RSS and wanting it to make a comeback.
Always followed by complaints about walled gardens like Twitter and Facebook.
Why does everyone feel the need to post about how much they miss RSS?
It's dead. Move on.
The r/python subreddit has fallen so hard, so fast.
Every post is
shut. it. down.
I wonder if phrases and words can become contagious?
I noticed "whilst", then "moreover", seemed to be frequently used in online comment sections.
Now I'm noticing sentences starting with "Imagine...", like "Imagine being this dumb..." or "Imagine being so rich...".
Someone needs to collect all reddit comments then chart the usage of these words and phrases over time.
Imagine not noticing this blatant...oops.
Gettin real tired of people somehow discovering how light and fast websites are when made with just HTML and CSS, and not a bunch of JS and frameworks.
How has everyone not realized this?
Is there just a new generation of programmers who grew up with heavy JS frameworks and never realized they can make a light website?
Welcome to "since forever"
How about everyone just stop complaining about electron being slow and bloated?
Every other hacker news link is a blog post about electron being slow. Electron is clearly winning developers due to it being easy to release cross platform applications.
No one wants to learn specific APIs and programming languages for Windows, Mac, Linux and mobile OSes.
Qt is the clostest for cross platform while still being minimal, but still isn't good enough.
