Imagine working as a programmer in year 2023 and counting days until you get laid off
Programmers are loosers; downvote if you agree 💭1
I watched a few reviews for the new nvidia RTX 4070 Ti graphics card. One question on my mind is: why is it so huge?
⏺️4090 is huge -> ok I get it, 450W power is a lot of W
⏺️4080 is huge -> ok I guess, 320 W of power is a still a lot of W; although it should be considerably smaller than 4090 (but it is not? why)
⏺️4070 Ti is huge -> 3 slots size for this graphics card? What the actual hell? This card is rated just 285 W. It makes no sense
I do not get it. The only explanation I can find is that the manufacturer got so lazy they cannot be bothered to design 3 different cooling systems, so they reuse the same cooling system on all graphics cards. RIP4
Hello guys. I present you my top 3 list of cringe people:
1️⃣ People who talk about their family, relatives, kids, partners, etc. No one wants to hear it.
2️⃣ People who talk about their mental health or body health issues. If you have health issues then go to a clinic. No one wants to hear
3️⃣ People who play Fortnite or Brawl Stars. People who play dumb pay-to-pay games for kids or smartphones. You're cringe
⏺️ People who live in a society = cringe13
Does anyone else feel that "retirement" is an outdated concept? Our generation will probably never truly retire, not in the same sense that this word meant in 20th century.
Considering how much the government-mandated retirement age went up; most of us will prolly die from continuous stress way before the day of "retirement" comes7
I just had a long talk with Character.ai; and well what can I say. Holy crappy crapping crap...
Is it perfect? No.
Is it above the comprehensive speech level that I though would be ever possible in my lifetime if I got asked about it just 1 or 2 years ago? Yes
Either that, or it is fake and provides replies from actual humans
The human engineers are now about 1 or 2 steps away from creating strong AI. We now have decent drawing AI, decent voice actor AI and a confident bullshit AI. All components are already there. Actual human reasoning is in essence confident bullshitter getting cross-checked a few times. Throw a few confident bullshitter AIs together, make them check each other's outputs, and you have basically human reasoning.
It is terrifying because of the coming implications for our society 🤡 At the same time, I am proud of the engineers who worked hard on the technical advancements for the AI and made amazing progress. I know how it feels to work tirelessly on a complicated technical task 💻🌙4
🎮 Why do so many videogames have bad anti-aliasing implementation? It is so easy to implement: just draw on a larger texture, then scale back to the target resolution
I've been playing Forza Horizon 4 and League of Legends lately and both games have terrible anti-aliasing; I can see pixels and cringy blur around the edges. Elden Ring is another game where anti-aliasing sucks
I understand that not every user can benefit from anti-aliasing because you need powerful graphics card; but still. Feels bad10
What if I could focus on coding 🤔 instead of
• freezing in my apartment
• asking dumb questions
Imagine having a font where two DIFFERENT letters look the SAME
Hello guys. Today I present you my top 5 list of things to do:
1. Write code 💻
2. Debug code 🐞
3. Review code 🔍
4. Cope 😔
5. Seethe 😠
6. Read memes during the online meeting 🤓
Just 5 days? What. Some technical problems take years to solve and you auto-close threads after just 5 days? Why you do this MongoDB 🗑️6
Hello guys. Today I come to unleash an army of bugs upon your
Hello guys. Today I bring you my list of top 3 programs that use too much memory
🪟 Windows 10+
⚛️ Web browsers, Electron
🐋 Docker containers
Honorable mention: ☕Java
The developers of those programs should put more effort into optimizing memory usage15
Java errors: if something is underlined in red in the IDE then it is a real error for sure
TypeScript errors: if something is underlined in red in the IDE then 50% of the time it is some 🤡 sh*t2
What's up with white flashes on Windows 11? Will they never get fixed? 🔆☀️💻
I'm workin on my laptop in a dark room. Whenever I switch windows, I get flashes of white light. What the hell. Explorer and Edge seem to be affected in particular.
I know I can install alternative apps for both Edge and Explorer, but I want to keep the number of installed apps to a minimum because of limited storage on my PC5
🐞 I get buggy behavior in Microsoft Edge browser.
The mouse text selection pointer is white.. on white background, so it is invisible.
What the hell, Edge??8
I hate and despise all governments so much right now. Blunder, waste money. Politicians are rarely held accountable for the bad decisions
People say that anarchy is bad. Like, the streets would be full of thieves and bandits: you walk 10m and you get robbed because there is no police. The real question though, is: do we have any real evidence on this matter? Just something I've been wondering about lately.
Do we have a real-world example where the crime rate actually goes down because of a good decision made by the government? Do we have a historical example of an anarchy society? The way I understand it, people were just more bloodthirsty in the past: many liked the idea of going to war and killing enemies (is fact). Now the culture has changed, but the governments are stuck in the past.19
Programmers: working tirelessly to create ever more advanced tech for handling information 💻
Governments around the world: oh, the citizens want something from us? They better get ready for PAPERS 📃
The year is 2022, ok¿13
Python decided to write unrelated unfunny memes on their official downloads page.
Python = 🤡 clowns, confirmed9
Linux package management is dumb for one simple reason: it is too complicated for its own good. There are too many different approaches and even within one approach there might be multiple repositories.
I am currently trying to set up a unit-test using Python Django framework.
I follow the official documentation step by step. I completed the steps.
It spits out an error: the table does not exist in the database.
Seriously, do you need any more proof that Python is bad? The developers of Python framework cannot even put together a working tutorial. If the unit-test framework requires the database then it should auto-create the tables3
