@alvarezp "Can't create file 'backup.sql' 'cause the directory 'xyz' doesn't exist."

I mean, the problem was the directory, so that's exactly what should be shown, not "file or directory".

Do people nicknamed "Kansas" say, at the end of every workday:

"Fasten your seat belt Dorothy, 'cause Kansas is going bye-bye."

..then, the princess read the compiler's book, got hooked and decided to go really deep into the subject

re: Call of Cthulhu spoilers 

@codesections I remember reading his Complete Collection and falling asleep while reading.

Or getting tired of reading. Not physically tired, not mentally tired, just completely and utterly tired of reading.

Hofstadter's Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law.

re: Call of Cthulhu spoilers 

@codesections Lovecraft, spoilers for everything:

Lovecraft horror is based on adjectives: "abnormal ticking", "nameless sound", "sinister with latent horror", and on and on.

His terror is based on throwing adjectives that sound bad instead of stories that actually do something.

I could promise myself that I'd take a look at it on Monday, which is a holiday (so I could do whatever I wanted), but I'm pretty sure I'd not even bat an eye on this code, no matter how strong the promise I made to myself.

I do hate how the system refuses to accept data when there is one single missing line and there is no information about what the problem was.

Shit. Fuck. Crap.

amazon launched in sweden two days a go and a /lot/ of products, especially video games, have absolutely awful machine translated title. Watch Dogs is "look at dogs", and a bunch of nintendo switch games just have "?circuit breaker" at the end of the title seven times

5 minutes fighting pg_dump 'cause it was complaining that the backup file was "No such file or directory", only to realize the file had a missing letter in the directory.

Developers, please, better error messages!

MDN Survey question: "How long have you been developing for the web?"

Me: "Haha, I'm going to mark '10+ years'. Hahah. That would be... 2010? Hold on, I AM developing for the web for 10+ years! Holy cow!"

Fucking hell, forgot my earphones at home. How am I going to code today without them?

I can't find the creator of this wallpaper, but I quite like the representation

I'm guessing the information came from this image: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fil

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Java. I think Streams and Functional Interfaces are a hell interesting, helpful and make the code looks simpler.

But heck, I can't find it "fun" to work with Java.
