+Avast Software please fix your god damn fucking bullshit "Anti-virus" bloatware. I'm getting tired of telling my clients to uninstall your stupid products because you guys are blocking my totally CLEAN and hand written scripts for absolutely no reason based on totally arbitrary heuristics.

Clients are now thinking we are a sketchy app because of those false positives.

Sincerely, go fuck yourself.

It would be nice if they had the balls to answer you back.

Epic just got epic! Unreal Engine 4 is now free!

I think Epic understood open-source right: make your product openly available, attract lots and lots of people, make revenues over royalties for paid software based on it instead. Sure, it's not a true FOSS license, but that sure is a nice compromise between the two worlds.

I just made my code something like 600% faster by making the code sleep with setTimeout().

That's it, I'm done with web.

(For the curious, my problem is that I'm creating a ton of draggable elements on the page, and event binding appears to be the major bottleneck. So I do it after the page is rendered using setTimeout(), and it done in the background before the user even have the time to notice the UI is stuck again. But the search results are there within 300ms instead of 2 whole seconds!)

That's quite a frequent Javascript workaround. It's a bit ugly but once again it's Javascript so if you control it properly it's OK but it can be quite challenging to keep under control. I've seen it in pretty nice code.

I think computers and programming are slowly eating my life.

I just saved a recipe someone told me over IM as "chicken.txt" in a "Recipes" folder by copy+pasting the chat log right into it. And it feels incredibly dirty to me. I feel like I should at least have stored that in a sqlite database or searched for a recipe manager. But this is dumb: seriously, that .txt might not be indexable, searchable or anything, but it's fucking good enough.

I miss the innocence of just doing all the things wrong because I didn't know better.

It's happening! It's finally happening!

3 years ago, I was put on a huge project. That project was to redo the entire TotalCoaching website from scratch. That went pretty well, and only 6 months later we were registering all our new members on it, but kept the old one alive for our old clients that were used to that version and needed every feature of it. Fast forward a year and a half later, we moved several of our big clients owning a big chunk of the user base of the site to the new version as well, converting from an old database format to an enterely new one. That went well too. But one obstacle remained: stubborn users that didn't want to move.

Today is the day the old website is finally being completely disabled and erased from the Internet. After all those years, my initial project and goal is DONE. Today was a very great day.

And that is one reason why I always format and reinstall my computers clean before I even use them. (The same goes with all my Android devices).

Seriously, at the price we pay for that hardware, I would expect it to come clean.

Always.

Well.. .No... I look at it first.
Then I get mad at Windows.
Then I format.
Then I'm happy.

Story
Tagline
A very arrogant sarcastic developer. Works as intended, wontfix.
Introduction
I love computers and electronics. I could sit in front of a computer all day long! I know bits of everything I can get my hand on, which is pretty helpful in programming to have a general idea of what the hell is going on between the program I wrote and the hardware it's running on. People seems to think I work well although there's always room for improvement.

I'm a bit shy but I like meeting new people and talking.  I like to keep it simple and straightforward. If I have something to say believe be you will know about it.

Also, I'm such a faggot ~
Bragging rights
I didn't go to school for any of the tasks I do for work. Such a waste of time.
