People walking slow in front of me

 

 

Especially when in groups that block the footpath. Groups walk slower than individuals.

This may be here already but....

 

Websites that appear to have loaded but just as you click on a link (or press if on a phone/tablet) another section - not always an advert - appears and shifts your link and puts another one right where you click so you end up somewhere else.

Having to trace cables to figure out which USB plug is the mouse, which is the keyboard, etc. None of the manufacturers seem to make the plugs green and purple any more!

Would that not defeat the purpose of the U(niversal) in USB?

The plugs, not the sockets; you could still plug them in anywhere but it'd make it easy to see which plug belongs to which peripheral.

My razer stuff says on the plug what it is for some of them. Its the other crap on my desk that doesnt like the streamdeck and hubs etc that annoy me. I need to unplug the streamdeck because it reverts to a elgato logo in white when the PC is locked, because that is totally logical to do, but its very annoying and bright.

Having to wait 😬 for my forum topic to be locked/closed because other users won't agree with me and it feels so mean. It really hurts my feelings.

You poor man! What a terrible thing to have happen. How can people be so cruel?

Buying a laptop battery from Trademe seller who advertises a 97wh version at a higher price than a 65wh one and sending me the 65wh one.
When I mailed they said they don’t stock the larger capacity one.
I said give me a refund.
They came back with “we just found one in stock”, but as it’s a short week it’ll take a while to get it to you. If you pack up the old one and print and attach the label in this email we’ll get the courier to pick it up”

Courier arrived to take wrong battery. Knew nothing about a delivery.
Emailed them: and they’re awaiting stock!!!

Lazy / thoughtless developers. I've had to submit passport details for a flight from nz to oz. Part of this is selecting the nationality of the passport. 

 

Since the flight is from nz to oz those 2 countries there's a high chance the passenger is from one of those 2 countries. Those 2 should be pre-loaded to the top of the list. Some passengers will have to scroll, why make everyone?
