When people say "somethink"

 

 

Haha! My wife is from the 'naki, and I'm from Auckland, and she's always teasing me for saying "somethink" instead of "something", reckons it's a JAFA thing (or should that be "think).

Fun* fact - Dire Straits were originally called Cafe Racers...

 

 

 

*Disclaimer - actually degree of "fun" may vary.

The noise of a 2-stroke engine.  More whiney than the voices of Axl Rose and Pippa Wetzel combined.

I am really fed up sick to death of artificial stupidity! I trip over this all the time. I avoid updates for precisely this reason. I always keep autoupdate turned off. Today I decided to manually update my browser because I noticed an issue with it. It downloaded, restarted, downloaded again, restarted, rinse and repeat. J**** F***** C*****!

 

Then I received yet another unwanted bla-bla email from my VPN provider. I am fed up with these so decided to finally unsubscribe (from the emails). I have a paid account but the dumbot insists that unsubscribing will kill that and kick me back to a much more restricted free account. I told the chatbot to stick it up its grommet and am now awaiting contact from an actual person.

 

I absolutely do not understand why people want to talk to machines. I have a Shield with Google voice search. It is the most annoying thing I have ever dealt with. I couldn't wait to install a Flirc and keyboard so I could type what I want and actually get what I type. What a useless moronic gimmicky piece of crap that is. If I had known in advance what I was getting I never would have bought it. I haven't touched it for six months.

 

Artificial stupidity is something fairly small in the scheme of things, but it really, really annoys me!

People who come to an event and proceed to put up a huge fricking gazebo in the busy field.

Mark: People who come to an event and proceed to put up a huge fricking gazebo in the busy field.


Likewise, similar event goers who cannot indulge in moderation and become a drunken nuisance to those around them as the event progresses.

I wonder whether we'll ever get geolocation working reliably. The "someone just logged into your Twitter account" email I just received doesn't just have the wrong city, but the wrong country too!

Mine usually tells me that it was someone near New Zealand when I log in.

If have to log in to my Apple account from another machine in the house, it usually tells me I have a log in attempt in Glenorchy!

Google shrieks that someone has tried to use my account and was that by any chance me? No, Google. It was the hacker.

The genius who's decided our one and only local dedicated post office isn't going to be a post office any more, its going to be a Kiwibank only. Hey, the towns population is only 20000, why would we possibly need a post office.

 

(apparently all that stuff is moving into Paper Plus).

Our nearest PO is in a PP store. It works exceptionally well and gives great service.
