Everything is mobile in Skype!
Including IQ of Skype's developers. It shifts from one to another!
When winter ends and March is coming, Google Calendar fails completely on event repetition functionality for events that are repeated by the end of each month:
It doesn't have such a repetition value like "end of month". And Google Calendar's developers are morons and didn't figured out that event set to repeat on 30th or 29th of each month must appear on February 28 in each non-leap year.
You cannot use non-alphanumeric characters in your passwords (which greatly increase password complexity and strength) and your password is limited to 20 characters at most -- new AliExpress madness:
The biggest China on-line shop offers you the biggest piece of shit when it comes to security, password complexity and strength!
Microsoft released a Windows 10' update that virtually kills your computer. That is -- upon restart your PC is unable to boot and keeps restarting to Repair Mode.
This is because some morons at Microsoft figured out that it will be so cool if an update to Windows will also fuck up boot sequence in your BIOS. Windows Boot Manager is thus set as first boot device and for some evil reason it is unable to find actual SDD disk which was (in my case) device number 7 in BIOS' boot sequence.
Booting device to BIOS (for which Repair Mode has even a cool button) and throwing Windows Boot Manager hell out of boot sequence or at least putting it into one of latest positions actually solves the problem.
You only have to eat your lunch then because this particular update also installs itself nasty long even on fast PCs.
When you open up settings screen in Google's Photos app, you'll see this:
That's pretty much everything about how Google care for you, what you may want or think. Zero! You're useless, mindless idiot. You cannot control, set or change anything. You must use this app (and everything from Google) in the exact way how Google is telling you.
This is the pure madness of Google. This is the pure madness of today's IT. This is the pure madness of the world we're living today in. We control nothing. Others tells us how to live.
Cisco truly knows their business when it comes Webex and its support...
The "big letters" (for stupid Americans and even more stupid Japaneses?) are not true. The "small letters" (for cleaver remaining part of the world?) are true. I've been using Cisco Webex in 64-bit version of Google Chrome for past three years with absolutely no problems.
Microsoft Outlook's offers a support for Free/Busy functionality -- a nifty feature for sharing your calendar details with others, which helps you organise meetings in the moment when every attendee is free for joining it.
Actually, this is an unspoken standard that is also supported in Thunderbird and many other calendars/mail clients. Only in Outlook it is so badly fucked up.
Eleven years after being launched OneDrive still sometimes fails on its key feature -- file sync -- and on some devices it recreates and syncs back files that were actually deleted on some other device.
This is the latest of at least three huge fuckups in this service that finally caused me to say: "Screw you, Microsoft, I am going back to Google!".
I'm not surprised that people are using partner services like Booking.com to book a hotel, if they can find at other hotels that many that huge fuckups, when trying to book on-line, as they can find at Vienna House.
The sweetest one is given above. There are no free rooms starting from tomorrow even though there are starting from today?
...or how to easily loose your files.
Microsoft introduced .zip files integration with Windows Explorer in Windows XP. And starting with 2001 you could operate on .zip archives just as you do on regular folders. In theory...
From the very beginning it was one of the buggiest and wasted functionality across entire IT world. And the one of the most irritating flaw were stupid errors appearing when doing copy-paste operations on .zip archives.
Sixteen years later nothing has changed. Doing some copy-paste operations on .zip files in Windows 10 is the fastest way to loose your files permanently.
Spotted moments ago during Office 2013 installation on Windows 10:
And now what, Bill?
Because Microsoft must always mess up and change simple things into complex one, with Windows 10 they have introduced two display off timeouts, i.e. amounts of time after which your screen is turned off:
First is set to 10 minutes (desktop PCs and laptops on AC power) or 5 minutes (laptops on battery). Second one is set to... 1 minute. Yes, every mother fucking minute after you lock-off your Windows your screen will be turned off.
And ya know, what? You can't change it! :>
The confirmation dialog box from Sublime Text 3's updater:
And you know... everything!
Qustodio.com is one of the market leaders in securing and controlling children mobile devices. They're keen and open to hear all your feedback, feature requests and changes suggestions.
However, there's a small glitch and you may be surprised finding it out.
Revolut is a great alternative to foreign payments and maybe even -- as its name says -- a banking revolution. Thus, it is even more sad that it hires morons.
One of these morons decided that it will be extra cool to let Revoult's mobile app add
Send money and
Request money items to your each and every contact:
Yeah, you've heard it. To each and every one. Even to those of your friends that know a damn thing about Revolut, never used it, never heard of it. Even to those of your contacts -- as above -- that aren't even people at all.
The same moron decided that it will not be possible to disable this feature!
Here you have 3,5 year old post that counts eighteen points to prove you that MTP protocol is a huge shit. Three+ years later nothing changed except for the fact that Microsoft and Google itself finally realized what they've invented:
It's error coming from MTP protocol-based file transfer and description of the protocol itself in one!
With the introduction of a new Gmail design you cannot access contacts quickly and you have to add yourself a shortcut to 9-dot menu (another stupidity by Google):
This will open the "new" Contacts screen in a separate tab.
Seeing such error in a buggy Android 7.1 isn't very surprising...
...until you find out that this application is...
...disabled and should never be run by Android!
Now, let's do some math. Android is made / sponsored / supported by Google. YouTube is Google subsidiary. Two plus two gives four. Guys at Android dev team made their homework, titled "I don't give a shit what user wants", very well!
Vivaldi is an interesting browser alternative with a very annoying bug in its updater.
It asks you, whether you're sure that you want to close Vivaldi and continue with the update... even, if Vivaldi is already closed (updater is the only running program):
And the biggest fuckup is that after update installation is completed, the updater always opens Vivaldi for you... even, if it wasn't opened so far.
...in Windows Update, haven't you?
Now what, Bill? :>
...does exist! :>
Couldn't believe with my very own eyes, so I had to make a photo.
Among many other stupidities in OneDrive here comes this:
File is downloaded, but... not.
The second counter (bottom one, with smaller font) went from 0 to 1 019,5 MB in the exactly the same period as first counter (top one, with bigger font) doing the same. Then -- magic! -- The smaller counter got frozen 1 019,5 MB while bigger counter started counting from 0 to 1 019,5 MB again.
To make yourself (itself?) sure OneDrive decided to download everything twice! :>
