They are paying me 6€/h, to develop in fucking FoxPro, as a freelancer, illegally.
I don't know how to tell them I'd make way more money as a dogsitter (and also enjoy it way more).
It all began as a favor for my old company, "we really need it plz plz" and then I became a slave.15
After 4 months of remote working I can honestly say the biggest downside is that weed is really really expensive, even if you grow it.17
That moment when your server is so messed up you can only blame the devil.
So you throw away your stupid atheism, begin believing in jesus and you do an exorcism on your server.
You server still sucks, it's obviously because earth is flat and the instruction set of the CPU is meant for a round earth that never existed...3
Me: *changes a long and complex calculation to fix old mistakes*
Program: *keeps outputting the same wrong result*
Me: *goes mad for a good hour trying to discover the problem by debugging it like a angry rat*
Also me after one hour of debugging: *discovers he never changed the output source of the function and it's still outputting the old result*3
I really like SQL Server, but my dbms (ssms) is like 2 years old, I installed it from a predownloaded exe we had.
Can you please let me download the update without asking me to register?

Dearly, a Linux user who develops in .NET, sometimes13
The weather is so hot that I can use it as an excuse for the slowness of my brain melted software
Cool these chips better, not my fault2
Everyone that says you can't get viruses in Linux because only .exe compiled programs can contain malicious code or some bullshit like this is a fucking retarded
Sorry I had to say it12

How many monitors do you need and how do you use them?

In my home I use 2 1080p displays landscape22
Is it only me that when I finally meet a competent collaugue and we build consistently good products together for an extended period of time that I start seeing him/her as the whole world?
It's so rare finding a really competent collaugue that when I do, after many wonderful works together, I just can't stop compliment him/her until it gets weird.3
My company called the icon for the button to go back "preview" because they don't know the english for this word is previous
Edit: also they didn't know you can just rotate an image instead of making a rotated copy of it5
I'm a fullstack engineer, this period there is literally nothing to do, we are a 1000+ employees company.
I got so bored I toke over the database of our production server two times in a week, exploiting dumb vulnerabilities I discovered out of boredom, of course I reported everything.
The funny thing is that they just don't care, no one took action or is willing to fix it and they actually insulted me because I set a query in sleep for 8 minutes exploiting one of the vulnerabilities.
I work for a great company that hosts (in this very server) most italian citizens informations C: free to take for everyone c:7
