I was trying to find some rare route with SWISS Airlines and while one-way ticket was find, there were problems finding return trip on that route. SWISS informed me, that in this case I can fill out time table form to check, when their planes are flying on my return route. Well... I did so and this is, what I have found...

There's a stupid (hoping temporary) bug in Wizz Air website's configuration causing users, which are trying to unsubscribe from Wizz Air mail offers to see strange errors, they should not ever see.

British Airways website (actually: booking system) not only still looks like most pages looked ten or even fifteen years ago. Seems that latest look change they had before Zuckeberg invented Facebook. You can only dream about optimized, mobile-friendly design. Anyway, that is not all. Their website is also full of stupid fuckups and nasty bugs.

It took five years to develop an image uploading mechanism in Google+, that does not block entire page from doing anything else, when uploading image. And that allows you to upload for than one image per once! FIVE years!

For five fucking years Google+ users had to struggle with extreme stupidity of not being able to write post's text during sometimes horribly long image upload process and in the same time were forced to upload image collection one-by-one.

Welcome to the future, Google!

Due to nasty bug in Gmail, warning about possible SPAM takes precedence over possible phising attack warning. Thus, if you receive an e-mail that is both phising attempt and is identified by Gmail as possible SPAM, then you will not see usual red warning, but a simple SPAM warning instead.

Ever wondered, if someone could design a program, who is saving changes without asking user for a permission to do so? Well... the answer is yes! There's even more. You must pay hundreds of bugs for shit-software, that do things like that. You don't believe? Well then, take a look at Enterprise Architect 8's Project Browser tree.

I was forced to change my phone to Microsoft Lumia 535. It was my first Windows Phone based device. The phone is generally a good pick (better in many aspects than all my Android-based phones used before). But, since it is (now) designed and produced by Microsoft, it would be impossible for it, to not have some serious fuckups. Here you'll find a list of biggest ones, that I found so far. Most of them are not too closely tight to Lumia 535 and there is a high chances of possibility, that you will find similar or the same in any other Lumia phone.

I was forced to change browser to Opera after years of using Chrome. The key reason was an absolute lack of Chrome on Windows Mobile and the fact, that on Android it was one of the worst, lest stable and most buggy apps, that I ever used. However, as I may expect, Opera is also full of fuckups, that are only waiting...

You start up your Windows, Skype starts up as well and welcomes you with the following error message:

Skype DAX Error

And everyone knows all about it, right! DAX Error? TUCServer? WTF!

We just love all those Microsoft Fucks, that design their software with plenty of meaningful, self-explaining error messages, right?

You can't set home or work address in Google Maps using PC. You must use mobile device. If you don't have one -- you're screwed. If you do have one and open Google Maps on it and go to My Places, as instructed, you may be surprised to find out, that this time you can't edit or delete your starred places and you must use PC for this purpose.

This is one of the most brilliant fuckups, Google Fucks has come so far!

I have never been using Microsoft Outlook, because this piece of software is huge, ugly and stupid. And most of all, it is a local, desktop program, thus (on contrary to all kind of webmails) you must install it anywhere in order to use it. Few days ago I was forced to start using this crap and I must admit, that Microsoft Fucks continues their long journey of bringing stupidity and fuckabillity to the highest levels.

SnagIt 8 is supposed to be somehow integrated with Skype, because it's uninstaller requires you to close Skype (among SnagIt's apps) before proceeding with uninstallation process. If you agree for an auto-close, you will be surprised to find out, that SnagIt's uninstaller is not only able to close Skype, but also... its own applications! I died laughing. How can any uninstaller not be able to close own apps (i.e. those, it is about to uninstall)? How can anyone design an uninstaller-like joke, which forces user to manually close all applications, that are being uninstalled?

If you set your Google Calendar's event to be repeated monthly at 31st day of each month, then what would be more reasonable in your opinion:

  • repeat it monthly on every last day of a month -- 31st day of each month, that has 31 days and on 30th (28th or 29th in February) for other months,
  • repeat it "monthly" on every 31st day of each month, that has 31 days and do not repeat it on every other month, that doesn't have that much days.

I don't know any person, who would pick second option. How can you say "repeated monthly", if it occurs only five times per year?

Unfortunately, due to Google Calendar engineers stupidity, second option is, what actually happens in current version of Google Calendar.

When you try to return data from Microsoft Query 97 to a Microsoft Excel 97 worksheet, the spinning globe icon (which signifies that a query is processing) may appear for a long time, and then the query returns no data to your worksheet. If you Google enough deeply to find a solution for this problem you may find solution filed under Q168702 in Microsoft Knowledge Base. It is just a rocket-science killer.

Today's evening, after my father's seventieth birthday party, the world has ended for me. I opened up Google Maps to find a road back home and all I saw was...

This fuckup is nearly as old as Windows 7 is -- meaning it has around six years:

windows-anytime-upgrade-fuckup

And six years wasn't enough for Microsoft to publish any update that would hide this dully behavior and block user access to non-functioning feature!

The biggest fuckup of all Nokia / Microsoft Lumia phones is, that you can't manually configure your Wi-Fi connection. You must use DHCP. If your local network does not offer this feature, you simply can't use that network. And you're sucked!

This is the weakest part of Chrome browser and one of the biggest IT fuckups, this world has ever seen! To be honest, I simply thrill, whenever I hear "Chrome Password Manager". Thinking, what in the name of God did they wasted this time?

There are many, many huge fuckups in Android 4.0. About most of them I wrote in a separate article. But dropping the native-USB support in favor of some lame shit and extreme useless stupidity, called MTP (Mobile Transport Protocol), seems to be so devastating fuckup, that it surely deserves for a separate article.

If you change your website and some, old-time ago remembered, links stops to work, you must implement a permant redirect to new, working URL!
Failing to fulfil this simple rule may lead you into loosing your customers because no one want's to see some garbage, even when using old links.

Thus, this is very surprising that companies like eBay had fuckups like this!

The Pirate Bay (in cooperation with the Cybernorms Research Group -- researchers affiliated with the Lund University Internet Institute in southern Sweden) has made the third annual survey to "better understand file sharing people's needs".

On step four you can select continent, where do you live and on step five you select country in previously selected continent, where do you live.

Idiots at TPB and Cybernorms Research Group put:

  • all countries from Central and South America to one group (one "continent"),
  • while separating "all" countries from "North America" to a separate group.

So, if you select the latter one in step four, you have... two options to choose in step five: Canada and United States!

Surely, putting everything to one group, called "Americas" was beyond imagination of TPB or CRG morons.

There are new, enhanced security settings in KitKat, which causes, that you (the device owner) can't copy files directly to Downloads folder. Well... you can, only these files are not visible on your device once you access this folder. This is first of fuckups on Android 4.4 KitKat. And so... the Google Android Fuckup Saga continues.

You know that PayPal isn't English? It is an AMERICAN English! And if you have any account with non-American nationality, due to large fuckup in PayPal, you can't access neither help system nor contact form. This is another big fuckup found in the world's largest on-line payment platform and it makes me start thinking if my money is as safe as I thought it would be just a few days ago?

When your account has so called non-standard (non-American) nationality, you can only select your own language and English. You can't select U.S. English< because this option isn't available on the list:

And since you're English, not U.S. English, any attempt to open Help Center or Contact Us page ends up with a beautiful error message:

Beautiful fuckup!

Android 4.2 JellyBean has come to my phone this night, so Android Fuckup saga continues. Of course, again, I have lost my nearly entire data plan, during middle of the night, because on of the biggest Android 4.2 fuckups is, that it again download system updates via GPRS, giving a damn shit, whether user decided to update everything via WiFi only.
