Things that piss you off that shouldn't

Recommended Posts

Websites that use fixed-width columns, so regardless of what resolution you're viewing the page from, it looks the same. Excellent, in theory. Except when you're using a low resolution, such as a notebook, you have to scroll over, because it's too wide, and if you're using a decent res, half of the page is taken up with white space.

The BBC website, for example.

This forum is an example of a good design that just adjusts the width to the resolution. Whereas the Guardian site is shit.

People who send you a message asking how you are, what you're up to, etc etc and then don't bother replying when you tell them.

Did you reply with a 'how are you' of your own? Because that's the only reason they text you in the first place?

I couldn't give a toss about the person in question, I was just replying out of courtesy.

What video game? Football Manager? COD?

And I'm feeling pretty much the same delighted we won!

Thanks.

The Job Centre actually came through for me on this one as they recommended I go on a course which has resulted in the job.

I first heard of him from Monty Python

My laptop is getting worse by the day. Every week there's something else **** with it. A new way to bring about a blue screen, or freeze my taskbar, or force everything to close, or just reboot completely, or freeze all my explorer windows.

For instance if i turn it on and enter my password too quickly I get an instant blue screen. I have to wait a couple of minutes, then enter the password, then wait til "the system has recovered from a serious error" box comes up, then I kill dumpprep process and I'm good to go. How I figured this out I don't really know.

If I open a folder with a video file in it, my computer goes **** mental. I don't have to open the video file, it just has an episode if it sees that I might be even considering watching a film.

People on here who during a debate, answer back with some smart arse comment trying to get a laugh instead of answering the question posed to them, while trying to blind the real arguement with fancy words. Just answer the **** question!

Well there ya go. I know about Ataturk, aka Mustafa Kemel, but I had no idea there was a stadium named after him (although I'm not surprised).
