People stopped in supermarket isles so they can play on their phones. Grrr. There were about three today I had to navigate around.

 

I know I'm biased in the first place as I don't like cellphones at all.

The endless listings on Trade Me from places like the USA and UK that have been loaded by (I assume) some sort of automated system, so you end up with heaps of pages of stuff from overseas, usually not including taxes in the prices. Under camera bags and cases at the moment are 7 pages of Pelican cases at insane prices from the USA (where they are usually much cheaper), including several listings for replacement foam sets at over $500 just for the foam!

They finally added a new zealand filter to the location, probably after howls from south island sellers since everyone I know was just setting it to north island to get rid of all that useless overseas crap on there.

Unreal words. Such as "hella".

 

Hella is a company which makes lights for rally cars, not a silly abbreviation of the perfectly useful term "hell of a".

 

As bad as our local butcher writing "chopz" on the blackboard as if that is some kind of time saving over writing "chops"...

I thought the name Hella was chosen after the founders wife Helen.

After a very long time I tried a pineapple pizza Hawaii for what reason ever. Well I think it's enough for another 20 years. I'm convinced no native Italian ever would create a cat killing food like that. I'd rather gone with the Diavolo or plain classical Magherita choice. If the restaurant can't make a classical tasty Magherita - you can surely forget all other stuff.

Fortunately there's no chance of my cat getting any of it because I'll eat it all myself! laughing

Passwords, passwords and passwords. They're hella annoying. Use unique passwords for each site and account (I mostly do). Change your passwords regularly (I hardly ever do). Goddamned things!

Click on File Explorer in Windows. It opens. Click on File Explorer again. It opens another window directly on top of the first one (almost) every time. Why would I possibly want two File Explorer windows plonked on top of each other...

With the MX mouse you flick the scroll wheel in Chrome (or wherever) and if you press control before its finished scrolling it changes the zoom setting.

People who raised questions or ask for help in forums but never tell how their issue finally has been solved.

There's a name for that; Fermat's Last Post.

 

"A post to a bug tracker, mailing list or forum in which the author claims to have found a simple fix or workaround for a bug, but never says what it is and never shows up again to explain it (even after others have been puzzling over the bug for years)."
