Contractor Code




  • There was a previous programmer that was on contract. While they were here, their code always seemed to work. But the moment this person left, stuff has crapped on itself. While this code snippet is not technically an error, it does show the kind of code we are repairing. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.

    This is RPGLE free format code.

    Var1 = %Trim('SOME_CONSTANT_STRING');

    WTF is he trimming?

  • No, don't kill, it's being improved and is quite nice to work with these days.

    He's attacking the darkness!

    This is like a very short, but polite, Blakeyrat post.

    Irregardless, it's not up to you to decide what is pertinent. And just the fact that you like RPGLE is evidence enough that you can't think straight so you would not be qualified to be part of a Pertinence Committee if one was ever created.



  • Don't speak ill of something you know nothing about. RPGLE pays the bills, it will continue to pay the bills... I do prefer .net C#. Unfortunately we are not there yet.

    Funny thing is, that WTF is lame but because it's a new poster and nobody was replying I figured I'd post a generic common sense reply before it got buried under funnier threads, leaving the new poster in the awkward position of someone who's never picked for dodge ball in middle school. See what a nice person I am? And how I was rewarded for my generous contribution to building a vibrant community?

    Also RPG is pretty awful. This is hello world in that language:

    dsply 'Hello World';
    

    And here is how you loop in "crap":

    read crap;
       dow not %eof;
          dsply ODOBNM;
          read crap;
       enddo;
    

    ODOBNM is basically the primary key (reserved word). Awful. Plain awful.



  • Hey dickshit. The forum category is side bar. It may be a lame wtf. But it is quite interesting if you know this person. Trying to trim blanks from the beginning and end of a string that contained none. It's almost as if he thought he was trimming the result field.

    I didn't really post for responses. I was just sharing.

    I thought this forum would have been a fun place to hang but with fucks like you who needs it.

    wha?  Resorting to bad language doesn't help your case. 

    Replies are what you get when you post to a forum.   And Ronald's reply actuall quoted something from your post, with one of those fancy "owl memes" the kids use these days.  This is what happens on a forum.



  • @TheSchutte said:

    Hey dickshit [insert Charlie Brown's teacher voice sounds here]

    For your convenience I can add you to the long list of people* I never reply to on this forum. So far here is the list:

    • Pol Pot
    • Kenny G
    • The guy from the Tostitos commercials
    • Cuntdoleezza Rice
    • Theo de Raadt
    • Any actor who ever played a bad guy in a John Candy movie (especially the guy on the left)
    • You

    If anyone else wants to be part of that VIP list please post a photo of yourself writing RPG code while wearing nothing but a sombrero and cowboy boots. (Go is also accepted for those who don't have access to a TN5250 terminal emulator)

    * actual people, not just stolen avatars

    The first thing the Wikipedia page for this thing does is point out it's a "high-level programming language (HLL)", complete with hyperlink to the article. Just to remind you that there was a period of history when programming languages that weren't high-level were actually a thing.



  • @Ronald said:

    Irregardless

    First class trolling.

    TheSchutte, you need a thicker skin man. You're losing your shit because someone said something you didn't like about a PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE.



  • @TheSchutte said:

    Hey dickshit.

    Now you're getting into the spirit!

    @TheSchutte said:

    This is really good stuff. I chuckled out loud.

    Wow. More bad blakeyrat impressions. Or maybe the electroshock is having an effect?

    @TheSchutte said:

    Yes, this is definitely WTFy. So is RPG. And complaining about threads not going in the direction you thought they should go. Neither you nor blakeyrat own threads. Just go with it and you'll be much happier.

    There is no other explanation...

    I was afraid MasterPlanSoftware suddenly reappeared. Afaik he's still the only non-spambot that has ever been banned from the forums.

    How do people who (have to?) deal with that usually pronounce it? I would probably go with ar-piggly.

    Yeah, why did that happen again? All I remember was he was having epic troll-battles with SpectateSwamp and an insanely high post count. Higher than his buddy Morbs -who stays in the shadows nowadays- and blakeyrat (what's with him, on holidays?)
    Actually, if their style weren't so different, I'd say they're all the same guy.

    Morbius is gone from the users list and suddenly dhromed is the only account with >10k posts.

    blakeyrat ragequit after having his threads derailed one time too many. mikeTheLiar, as the one who caused the ragequit, now wear's blakey's avatar as a symbol of his triumph. It's actually a shame that blakey had such a thin skin, as he did contribute valuable lulz.

    Whether I agreed with him or not I found his posts very entertaining. And once I got past his angry blakeyrants and wild exaggerations, I generally agreed with what he had to say.

     



  • Both morbs and blakey seem to be lurking. Both of their profiles show them as having visited yesterday.

    This may be a complete whoosh!, but 1) are you calling me a liberal? 2) Are you serious, or trolling? If you are seriously calling me a liberal, I have a one-word response: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... *cough* *cough* Ouch, I think I hurt myself.

    As soon as his $634 million website works Obama will make all your pains go away (including cancer and religion).

    What do you mean by religion? I am confused.
