The Queen is dead

And majority of sane people don’t give a fuck.

Didn’t know her. Never met her. Don’t fucking care about someone who’s position is an accident of birth.

The same mass hysteria on the scale of Diana’s… ahem ‘accident’ is on show, with the same cretins on TV, remembering how they saw Queenie whizz by in her car 30 years ago and how it’s all so emotional for them now she’s plucking harp strings with her husband now. Whoop de fucking doo.

But giving a shit about the UK royal family isn’t the point of this. Nor is the blanket, one sided version being fed by the media.


How about a woman being arrested for holding up a sign calling for the monarchy being abolished?

What about a man being arrested for heckling Prince Andrew?

Man arrested for heckling Prince Andrew – https://www.cityam.com/man-arrested-for-heckling-prince-andrew-at-edinburgh-procession/

And the fucking cherry on the shit sundae, a man hassled by the police for holding up a blank piece of paper, warned that is he write notmyking on it, he’d be arrested for a public order offence because someone MIGHT be offended.

Fuck me, people have lost the plot along with their fucking minds.


How not to describe a film to the wife

Every now and again, the wife asks me if I have anything we can watch. Since we have widely different tastes in films, it’s not often I have something we can watch together.

However, I thought I was on to a winner with this one as it’s a film based on real events (she likes that) and a murder (hmmm maybe on that one).

When she inevitably asks me what the film is about, because IMDB is a mystery to her, I open my big mouth and say with: “It’s called Sister, My Sister and it’s about two French Maids…” and that’s when she walked off with a sigh.

With the benefit of hindsight I could have explained it was about two maid who were French as it sounds less PornHubby.

For anyone not familiar with the story behind Sister My Sister, and it’s as fucked up as you can get, here’s a documentary about the Papin Sisters.

How to query an API. Or not, in this case

It’s a fairly run of the mill task for developers to access an API. Send a token, check you have permission to do so, and process the data sent back in the request once you have been authenticated.

It’s quick and secure and powers the internet.

No problem.

Like I said, you could do it that way if you were semi-competent. But there is an alternative method.

As a ‘senior developer’ you could alternatively skip the security and authentication and just send the users email and password to the server as plain fucking text in an GET request.

Yeah that works.

And to make this clusterfuck even better, could could error_log() the request, again not worrying about encryption or obfuscation. You could also put that file in a directory so anyone can type /log to the end of the URL to see the fucking file and see everyone’s email and password.

But only a fucking retard would do something that stupid.

Not saying it happened, nor did I spend three fucking hours changing all my fucking passwords and sign back in on desktop, laptop and two mobile phones.

No, I dreamed all this.
