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.

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:

  • regular one,
  • lock-off screen one.

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! :>

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.

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! :>

It turns out that number of fuckups and wasted things in the new Google Calendar design gets bigger and bigger. Not only Google Morons introduced a lot of new shits, but also wasted something what was working pretty perfectly in previous ("old") version of Google Calendar!

Liked previous post? There's more to come!

A brand, new Google Calendar interface design has flourished recently.

Unfortunately, entire power of dev team was spared on changing look & feel. No significant changes in logic & functionality can be observed. Including, still absolute lack of drag-and-drop event copying. Again, Google Idiots failed to discover and develop this awfully obvious functionality!

There are two ways of deleting a message in Gmail. You can delete entire thread (by using Delete button) or just one message in it:

The second delete won't be replicated in mobile Gmail. You will see this message still appearing in given thread, just as you would ever delete it. You must purge Bin folder in order to get this message delete in mobile Gmail.

Another fuckup discovered in Android... and in mindless heads of Google dev fucks.

According to fastmail.com ("SSL/TLS vs plaintext/STARTTLS port numbers" part) and thousands of other sources in the Internet (emphasis mine):

  • IMAP uses port 143, but SSL/TLS encrypted IMAP uses port 993.
  • POP uses port 110, but SSL/TLS encrypted POP uses port 995.
  • SMTP uses port 25, but SSL/TLS encrypted SMTP uses port 465.

That doesn't count to morons who produced Microsoft Outlook 2010. They've decided that switching encryption method for IMAP between None to SSL will change port from 143 to 993 and back (correct!). While, doing exactly the same for SMTP won't change port at all.

This way Outlook is problably the only mail client in the world who is trying (unless you manually correct it) to establish secure, encrypted SMTP connection over port 25. An attempt which is doomed by its definition. Congrats again, Microsoft fucks!

I had a simple case. I wanted to rent a car for a week at Europcar. My initial attempt (to provide all the necessary details in an email and receive initial quote through this channel) was bumped with Europcar employee responding to me and advising me to visit europcar.com instad.

So I did. And here's where all the madness started.

The stupidity of Power Point itself and all those fucks with "I'm working for Microsoft" tattooed on their foreheads is simply beyond imagination. You actually cannot change language of all PowerPoint slides at once. You have to:

  • do this manually (each and every slide and text box separately!),
  • mess up with outline view (won't work for future-written text!),
  • mess up with system settings or
  • even be forced to use Visual Basic for Applications (here, here, here and here).

Thirty years of PowerPoint's development wasn't enough time for MS-Morons to figure out that global change of language would actually be a useful functionality!

There is a third (next to this one and this one), quite pretty fuckup with HP printer's settings. Even though they have full hardware support for duplex printing, this feature (as good as many others -- like manual page feeding) comes disabled.
