Well... I was trying to contact Air Berlin to ask them about some issue concerning my reservation. Finding contact form (after digging through some mindless FAQ) was an experience itself. But, when I actually found it, filled it up and tried to send my message then... CAPTCHA killed me completely.
First of all, Adobe does not ask you, whether you'd like to become part of usage data collection program. So, there is no usual "Yes, I agree" checkbox or "No, I'm not interested" button. Adobe thinks, you're a lossless piece of shit and only kindly informs you, that you're part of this program.
But, there's a far more shit behind.
I just wanted to create a 4 minutes long home video in Sweet Home 3D:
But, it turned out that on my dual-core i3 with 8 GB of RAM it will be ready... within next 25 days (!), that is... after Easter!
When you're using some shared computer (i.e. university, hotel, airport etc.) and you want to get access to your Google services, you have four options:
- use Guest / Incognito mode,
- login in Google Chrome browser,
- login to each service used separately (i.e. Gmail),
- login to Google account via https://myaccount.google.com/.
Since you're cleaver user, you will most likely use Ctrl+Shift+Delete to purge browser out of private data. Great!
If you selected second option above (i.e. login to Google) then now you're really screwd! Next time you wake up you'll see your account completely purged out of all your private data.
I've been writing about stupidities found in Firefox and other Mozilla products for years. Finally, I've decided that there is so many fuckups and bugs in Firefox that I actually stopped using it. I switched to Chrome and left Firefox installed only for one reason -- very cool download-youtube plugin, which lets me download YouTube video with a snap of fingers.
Up until today I was downloading single video per day, so I didn't noticed, how fukky and wasted Firefox downloader module is. Even in newest version of this dully browser. Today I had to download 27 parts of a large video guide. The way how Firefox was choosing folders for saving each video brought me to only one conclusion -- either this is purely randomized madness or Mozilla morons only knows logic behind this.
Looking for self-desctruction torpedos. Is it a single search result...
...or two? :>
On just a little bit slower computers running Windows 7 you may experience a really strange "blurry" behavior of Windows Update main screen, when downloading or installing a large amount of updates. But, that's not the only problem with this service. It also get completely wako, if you install certain fixes using offline installation packages.
We all know about stupidities of recreating
Documents folder in OneDrive each time you manually delete it. Something for which Microsoft in general and OneDrive in particular are very, very famous recently.
Today, I found something way bigger. A fuckup that kills everything!
The Mio MiVue 658 Touch dashboard camera is generally a good piece of hardware.
Unfortunately, among some extra features (like included safety cameras warning feature) and some obvious things, found in most dashboard cameras (like being able to use it for just 10-20 seconds without external power source) it also has two huge fuckups, which may not be so obvious to people willing to purchase it.
I have upgraded TeamViewer to the newest version and... well... I was quite surprised to see, what TeamViewer 11 Remote Control can.
In case you didn't know, Windows can install a driver for an unrecognized device:
Where is your god now, Bill?
Well... sometimes you must tell your members a really honest reason, why you can't give them, what they're expecting to get!

OKI engineers proved that you can create a driver setup program, that is not only as less user-friendly as possible, but also isn't able to correctly detect a printer, it is supposed to install drivers for. In 2016 OKI developers proves that such things are still possible.
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...
