Linux is driving me insane April 30, 2016, 1:20 pm
How do people seriously develop software for this? The entire OS is a monstrosity. If somebody with as much experience and broad skillset as I have can be completely defeated by this thing, then I don't understand how it works for anybody.

Originally tried to install steam-dev on Mint. Wouldn't take, complained manifest file sizes didn't match. So I trash that entire VM and install Ubuntu 14.04. After two days of confusing unhelpful error messages I figure out I'm supposed to do apt-get update and THEN try to install the chroot environment. OK that is supposedly working now.

So I bring in the code to my game. This is not an open source game. I must build this game in a way that the resulting binary is redistributable. How do I do that? I have no fucking idea. So I start just trying to compile the son of a goddamn bitch as step #1 because I need to make sure that's working at a basic level. CMake can't find libpng headers. Because something so simple doesn't come pre-installed on a kiddie candy piece of shit distro like Ubuntu.

So I apt-get install libpng-dev. And I end up with libpng12 from like, 8000 years ago. Great!!! That is FANTASTIC!!!!!! Because my PROGRAM needs libpng 1.6.12 and I have NO fucking idea how to build it, there are no DIRECTIONS anywhere on how to build it, and, after 2 hours of googling for any sort of advice I have found NOTHING. And everybody on IRC can just stare blankly at me like I'm a fucking idiot for not knowing what a deb is.

I am goddamn tired of this, it is all bullshit. What would be simple problems anywhere else, that in most cases should not exist to begin with, are impossible to do anything about without already knowing every possible arcane command line invocation for the entire operating system. There are NO inroads to this shit. You either already know it or you have to get somebody who does to do it for you.

Tattoo #3, got it just today. It's the older Skinny Puppy logo for those who don't know.

I'm hoping to get another one next month, and a few others by the end of the year.

Exempt From Finals! April 27, 2016, 8:33 am
Just got out of my CIS class twenty minutes after it started. Apparently a few people (including yours truly) did well enough in the class to be exempt from the final examination this semester. Ergo, I get to sleep in until 10AM on Mondays and Wednesdays from now on!

Fuckinaye for being the shit!

Let go without warning (not anymore!) April 26, 2016, 9:20 pm
So my most recent job was being a cashier at a grocery store. I tried to work quickly and accurately, nobody had said anything about my speed. The last time I went in to get my paycheck, my hiring manager asked to talk to me, and told me that customers complained multiple times about my speed.

First of all, I wasn't going slow, do people expect me to be The Flash? Second of all, why was I not told about these complaints? I could have responded by working faster, I just didn't think there was a need because nobody fucking told me.

I called the corporate office just to ask WTF was going on and why was I given no warning to improve, and they're actually looking into it for me. At worst they'll say "store didn't feel like giving advanced warning and we don't care", but maybe something more will come of it. I'm hoping to work at the location my friend works at, perhaps.

Okay, so today I reinstalled gmod due to a massive fucking error from the CSS content pack I downloaded to fix the missing textures bullshit. I'm gonna try it again because I don't wanna have to spend a fuckton of money just to fix the missing textures shit.

Liking Judas Priest more and more April 22, 2016, 11:16 pm
