Have you ever not wanted to do something so much that you started doing it, and later on realized you had become distracted to do work instead of this thing? ๐Ÿคฃ

Warranty and insurance are legalized scams. They have no incentive to fix your issues because you’ve already paid them money, so they’re not motivated. And it’s such a headache. If you are legally not required to pay for insurance and warranty, don’t pay. It is a scam.

Idea for a passthrough VR headset: ‘IRL subtitles.’ Make the headset capture audio and convert them to subtitles, then show them floating in an AR environment in real-time.

I never had a problem pairing Bluetooth devices on Linux. It’s always fiddling on Windows, iPhone, Tesla. On Linux, it just works. I would admit one device I failed to make work: the Xbox controller (and you know it’s made by Microsoft).

In an ideal world, people do what they are passionate about and that makes them happy. Based on this, if you have a question: ‘Should I do this or that?’ The answer is: No. If you truly are passionate about this, it is not a question for you; you already do it.

Years ago, I had a first date at the cafรฉ and ordered an espresso for myself. At that time in my life, all beverages I drank were with sugar; I did not drink even diet versions. I think I did it just to impress my date. So stupid. Now I drink only black coffee and espresso for d…

Don’t you hate it when you type the app name in the search bar of your iPhone and it shows up for a millisecond and disappears under your finger, and you open a completely different one?

The software development process involves iterative planning, design, coding, testing, and deployment phases, with continuous feedback integration and issue resolution until the final product is ready for release.

Are you a software engineer? Use your skills to focus on solving real-world problems. Human happiness is a good example. Making frameworks, building scaffolding, making enginesโ€”we have all of this. I think we’re ready to start working on real problems.

I cannot understand how Kibana is better than a plain log file?

  1. It’s slow; it runs in the browser and starts dying after 100 messages;
  2. Then they invented their own query language, regexp is fine.

I ended up doing Ctrl+A Ctrl+C Ctrl+V into the text file.

Lately, I have been dealing with a lot of anger. I want revenge and justice for bad people. But I am just a software engineer; not even a manager or producer, let alone an executive. I cannot do much about it. They are skilled at manipulating the situation to their advantage. The…

I noticed a habit when I am using the terminal: deliberately, I do not type the last character of the command and press tab to be sure I did not make any typos in the command name.

There is an interesting video about word embeddings from computerphile; I wonder if we can make a word game based on it. One of the ideas computer gives you 2 words and you need to get from one word to another by adding and subtract…

BTW, we have a solution for global warming that we’ve had for ~50 years: nuclear power plants. They are cheap and reliable. But for some reason, people think making more nuclear bombs is better.

Recent layoffs in the tech and gaming industry have significantly impacted several major companies. For instance, Microsoft announced 1,900 layoffs, Riot Games 530, Unity 1,800, Twitch 500, and Epic Games 800, among others.

This situation has led me to reassess my perspective on…
