Did you try setting it to wumbo?

[-] [email protected] 14 points 2 weeks ago

I tried editing the thingamajig to set it to wumbo but it started erroring again when I turned on the doohickey

[-] omidmnz 1 points 2 weeks ago

That explains it then! Turn doohickey off and try richhickey.

They're both making the same joke, but one got upvoted and one got downvoted. I don't understand people

This is a fake screenshot that aims to highlight how new programmers can not understand programming terms and ask about it only to have their question misunderstood.

[-] [email protected] 30 points 2 weeks ago

Oh... I thought they were both just being silly

Your explanation makes a lot more sense. Thank you!

[-] [email protected] 3 points 2 weeks ago

New programmers. Lol. I see people who have been doing this for 20 years, and don’t know how to read an error message.

[-] [email protected] 46 points 2 weeks ago

The downvotes seem to indicate: don't put this fake garbage here and waste people's time

The upvotes seem to indicate: since we're here in a joke post, the joke answer is appropriate and funny. Added benefit that it is in the form of a very unhelpful response (merely rephrasing the error message) which is a relatable experience

Its stack, it doesn't matter what the question is, the answer is "fuck you for asking"

This perfectly describes StackOverflow

Holy shit people are toxic. The poor guy that responded.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 2 weeks ago

It's a fake screenshot.

Such a great piece of art displaying one of the many issues with stack overflow.

Of course it's GUMBIES'S fault for not providing good documentation! Every debian based distro is affected. This isn't a small issue.

Here's the link to a fix: [Dead link]

Some error messages are pretty weird so I wouldn't guess that this is fake.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 weeks ago

As a non programmer this is just how all programming questions look like to me.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 2 weeks ago

No MVE, no indication that any work was done to fix the problem yourself. Closed as a low quality question.
