Telemarketing is Life Destroying!!!!

Here's a lady who actually hates telemarketing more than I do: Crazy telemarketer call.

The scary part is that I actually relate to that lady more than the little punk-ass telemarketer.

New Versions of Napster

I get sick and fucking tired of Napster repeatedly coming out with new versions and not allowing me to continue enjoying the old ones. I want to download something RIGHT NOW, not fucking get sent to install hell. I am busy and have many apps running that need to KEEP running, not be set on the back burner so I can reset my machine to complete yet another bullshit update on Napster just so I can download a couple of songs.

The stupidest part is that they never seem to get rid of the annoying pop-ups inviting you to upgrade. I use Napster to buy singles, not as a radio and they should leave me alone if that is my preference.

And don't tell me iTunes is better, because it's not. I hate that shit.

The goddamned dog likes to nest under our computer desks so we keep her out of our offices, but she has commandeered the desk in our living area which holds two computers plugged into a power strip plugged into an outlet . . . under the desk. She rubs her shit up against it and loosens it, making the computers turn off, which makes us lose three of our voyeurcams, and of course concerns us that she'll get shocked and/or we'll have power surge problems with those computers.

I fucking hate standing around rebooting computers. HATE WAITING FOR THEM TO DO THEIR SHIT. Tonight I got this big nasty error on our main laptop after the dog did this again, and we canNOT afford a computer problem now. Can *NOT*. It seems to be working now, but I really despise ending my evening standing around worrying about shit like this, waiting for the computer to do it's thing, blah blah blah. Fucking WORK already. I wish I had a robot to take care of retarded crap like this but then it would just be one more bullshit machine to have to fix.

What is up with the Flickr romance? I don't get it -- everytime I go to someone's stupid Flickr page IT TAKES FOREVER TO LOAD. EVERYTHING takes forever to load on that site. And then people seem to enjoy being sucked into this comment vortex where you give sappy compliments on every fucking image posted. Do people not have better things to do? Flickr is a fucking waste of time.

Tales From Packaging Hell

Wired talks about one of my biggest pet peeves: Tales From Packaging Hell.

It's fantastic to see this nuisance addressed and have some medical statistics to back up the harm that this shit causes. And it doesn't even mention the blood pressure issues! ;)

Shitty Ass Mouse

Ugh -- I hate sitting at my boyfriend's computer. The machine itself rocks, but he keeps using the free cheap-ass mouse that came with it instead of switching to the nice one he had hooked up to the laptop.

Cheap shitty-ass mouses suck, give you carpal tunnel syndrome, and destroy work efficiency, not to mention creating accidents when you click on the wrong thing because the ball hasn't scrolled to the position you anticipated, the position it would have IF it weren't a cheap motherfucking worthless piece of shit.

Springing Forward

I fucking detest the component of Daylight Savings Time known as "springing forward". I don't want to lose an hour of sleep, no no NO I don't.

The sickening part is that it throws me for such a loop that I more than make up for it in naps, and a vicious cycle is perpetuated: nap due to sleep loss from Daylight Savings Time, look at clock and get depressed seeing how late it is and that I've lost so much time, depressed tired feeling induces more napping, and so on.

The only good thing about it is that it's darker in the morning longer, keeping those damnable birds quiet for a while longer until the days get so long we barely have any blessed night. Sigh.

I hate it when I have something really bitchy to gripe about, but by the time I sit down at the computer I can't remember what it was or recall the fury with which I bitched about it earlier.

Music I can't Turn OFF!!

I fucking hate websites that automatically set music to playing when their page loads AND FAIL TO HAVE AN AUDIO-ON/OFF option clearly visible at the top of the page. I just went to MadTV and had to just close the browser since the whole thing is flash based so just hitting "stop" doesn't make the music stop.

Bombarding me with stimuli really sends me into convulsions of anxious misery. I suppose it has a lot to do with having Attention Deficit Disorder, but I can't mentally process 1) a noisy song with lyrics, 2) an unfamiliar site layout, 3) text, and 4) other visual stimuli (photos, etc.) all at the same time. I'm just not up to the challenge.

I'm a very impatient surfer, and I prefer to deal with one thing at a time and visit sites that make it easy for me to find what I'm looking for without waiting, without sacrificing hot keys for their own personalized bullshit manners of navigation, and without crazy auditory distractions. I think it's cool if people offer audio as long it's easy to turn off. If I have to hunt for it, or there is no possibility of turning it off, your site is a worthless annoying piece of shit to me.
