I had to do an engish exercise where i give advice.
"Your pet dog has lost his apatite recently": "You should put him down"
"Your sisters car has been makin strange noises recently": "You should call an exorcist"

Anyone else have windows 10? Cause I was programming and forgot to do so in notepad++, and then windows update ran and deleted my changes.
My cemetech username is awesommee333.

That moment when you realize that you like programming, again, and wonder why you spent the last weeks watching youtube and playing video games wasting your time on your comp.

To be fair everyone has moments like that. You can't be programming 24/7 after all, it would get boring. :P I received some hardware parts two days ago so now I'm messing with them but before that I've been messing around while being bored, and before that I was focused on keeping a commit streak on github for as long as possible (lasted 65 days).

Speaking of hardware. Mfw something doesn't work because I set the wrong pin numbers in my code.
Also, mfw I ordered boards only relying on the pinout in eagle for my flash chip instead of checking the datasheet for the right one. Now I have to use green wires.

Today I had to record some stuff with a professional video camera for school. I forgot to turn the mic input on. Which was probably a good thing, thinking of that...

I hate when I spend 10 minutes recording a video, only to discover that sound failed to record >.<

When companies don't notice you before automatically charging money to your debit card or Paypal account. That really sucks.

(I don't trust automatic payments and try to avoid it when possible, but sometimes it's not possible (looking at you, Netflix and my current ISP). Also a robot arm to Namecheap who seems to be pretty much the only one I use who understood. That and my rent, but they probably just can't do the automatic payment thing since it's not an internet service.)

Yeah I noticed that some companies are quick to do that, but the thing is most I encountered asked me permission to do it, so I am generally fine with it. It just sucks if they do like RN and tells you that you only have 1 upfront payment to do with no yearly fee, then a year later charges you an hidden yearly fee. As for my rent, I use checks for the time being so they can't take any of my money until I paid.

Juju

Well, for my rent, (also the landlady I had before) I usually pay it in cash with a ton of $20 notes.
