Things which piss me off.

Programs that require an internet connection in order to access the help "feature."
Seriously, what the fuck is with coders who write such shit?  Winamp, I'm looking right at you.  What the fuck makes them think you'll have a connection 24/7? Especially if you're using a laptop.  Not including a help file is just bullshit

Drivers / App installers that again, require the fucking internet to install.
I'd rather download the installer package ONCE, thank you.  Just gimme the
whole package in one fell swoop.  The days of needing a installer to cherry
pick what features to install (so as to save time downloading) are pretty
much done for most folks.  Gimme the option to download the whole damned
thing, that way I can back up the installer and not have to fuck with
finding and downloading it again.


Programs that require that you find/download some obscure fucking .DLL or control.

Programs that automatically add themselves to windows's startup routines, so you get the 'joy' of waiting for the fucking things to load after you log onto windows.....especially when those programs aren't used every time.  One example of such a program is Winamp.  There's also Steam (for games and such) and things like Bittorrent and Emule.  You know what, coders?  If I want your fucking software running all the time, it's trivial for me to get it to do so.  Defaulting to 'start with Windows' is plain fucking bullshit.

Programs that grab practically every file association ever, and then run a shitload slower than the software you were formerly using.  Quicktime, I'm looking at you.

People:

People who post stupid shit on places like Youtube (mostly heavily edited, pointless waste of time videos. )
People who rip off other people's ideas for videos and whatnot.  Seriously, grow the fuck up.  If you can't come up with your own ideas, then fuck off.
Emo people who whine about how unfair life is on the internet and how horrible it is to get old and whatnot.

Seriously, what the fuck are you smoking?  Odds are, since you've got the ability to whine about your bullshit on the internet, your life is a helluva lot better than most other people on this planet.  You have access to:

Computers
The internet
Running (hot and cold) water
electricity
non-contaminated food (and a good variety thereof)
actual police protection without the use of bribes to ensure your own safety.

Sitting there whinging about how life treats you like shit is just absurd, especially considering the horrors other people in the world routinely deal with.  Remember the folks in New Orleans after Katrina?  Remember the folks in Darfur?  Now those are people who could whine about shit all day long and you'd just have to shut the fuck up... because THOSE are folks who got a shitty break in life.

Gangsta wannabes.   Folks, I know real gangsters... the idea that anyone would want to emulate their lifestyles is just insane.  You basically can count the number of years you're likely to survive real gangbanging on the fingers of one hand...and you'll probably have a few fingers left over.  There's all kinds of things that can happen to you as a gangster.  The idea that rich/well off suburbanite teenage white kids actually wanna play at being thugs like this just blows my fucking mind.
Get a clue, you little fucktards.  You think it's cool because some dumbass rap artists sing about 'poppin' caps' and all that horseshit?  It sure as hell wouldn't be so cool if you got your dumb ass shot for infringing on some other gangs territory.
Of course, the ones who DO get shot up and survive try to play it off like they're so hardcore that they survived it, and then go back to the same old shit again... Fucking morons.

  1. My favorite is when your internet goes down and the help or whatever to get it back running requires you to go online. Does this solve your problem? uh, no, duh.
