After reading that thread about password strength, thought I'd be a smartypants and got my password manager to generate a 29 character password for a work website.

 

Defeated by the fine print stipulating max 15 characters.

How my LG speakers are permanantly able to be paired to just because they are powered on but doing something else like playing wifi or aux in, so anything in range can connect and start to play audio.

Aredwood:

ASB Internet banking.


 


Filled out the reference fields as part of making a one off payment, then realised that I hadn't yet entered the account number. As soon as I move the cursor to the 1st account number field, everything that I had typed into the reference fields got deleted.


More time wasted having to retype and recheck the 6 reference fields.

oh that irks me something crazy when web forms do that.

Ive had one where it had a free text field to but city, and then a country. When you choose the country the text one changed to a dropdown, but without what I had typed selected in it. The country field was after the city one on the form. what dumb designer does that?

Tried to open an extra account with ANZ. Already have a range of accounts with them, just wanted to add an extra account. Fill out the form online last week, then over Easter weekened while I'm away I get about 4 texts saying they cannot get hold of me to open the account. I ring them back on Wednesday on the number in the text, and the personal banking team cannot open it for me, need to put me through to business team, who have a long queue, then personal support rep has to get approval from team leader, and eventually is able to open a simple free account. I appreciate what the rep I was on the phone did, but why make it so complicated to open a simple account!

Just been a nice coastal walk on ANZAC morning only to have the peace and tranquility destroyed by buliders working on the aforementioned ANZAC morning. VERY disrespectful.

Why do I have fill out a declaration that I am not an American citizen, dont do business in USA for IRS via nz IRD.

I already spent 45 minutes dealing with this crap when I opened by business accounts last year.

Do we really believe those who are doing dodgy stuff are going to admit it....

Just like those us immigration forms where I admit to being a terrorist and a member of the German nationality party in 1930's...

I'm a tradie.

 

I can't see anyone who has to work on ANZAC day disrespectful whether they make noise or not - as long as it's not before 8.00am or interrupting a ANZAC Service, that would be disrespectful.

 

What about planes flying overhead, traffic, outboard motors etc etc

It's more than just noise. As an ex serviceman I do find it disrespectful for any non-essential or discretionary work to be done on ANZAC morning, because the only motivation in that case is money, and therefore is no different to shops opening.
If your employer makes you do non-essential work, they are the ones being disrespectful.

Did you take it up with builders and ask them the reason they are working?

 

I'm working because a couple of my customers cars needed repairs to get them on back on the road, not utterly essential - but means they can go back to work tomorrow and they appreciate my effort.

 

And I don't get holiday pay, so I better get back to work.

Okay. So not a builder then? And automotive repairs that could be considered 'essential' and will take all day to complete?
