Microsoft, fix the stupid broken Storage Sense in Windows 11


Ok Microsoft, tell me how you can have a feature around for literal fucking years and it’s still broken to a point it’s literally fucking not working at all? Like for example StorageSense. Those 4MB of cleaned stuff is highly questionable and if files in Recycle Bin older than 30 days are deleted automatically, then why the fuck I still have files in it that were deleted back in November 2022. Fucking 4 months ago? But hey, that stupid shit you keep removing and adding back months later is so fucking important. Or moving of taskbar around the screen edges. Windows 98 had that shit. How about you first fix your existing shit and stop removing crap we had 30 years ago? For fucks sake. What an absolute dump. With how much tracking and idiocy is in Windows, it should be fucking free because it’s in worse than BETA state for years. WTF?!

Anti-fraud service Eye4Fraud hacked

Apparently this service got hacked per recent news. What’s the biggest irony is that they were suppose to keep customers safe from fraud and now, what I can only assume, their pure incompetence resulted in leak of over 16 million customer accounts information. This includes customer e-mails, physical addresses, phone numbers, partial credit card numbers and more.

More can be read here:

Adding extra insult to injury, users can’t do anything about it because they are some 3rd party no one asked to collect user data got all the user data and no one even knows what websites use this service behind the scenes. You may get a notification that your personal information was compromised in a security leak, but you pretty much can’t do anything about it because some unrelated 3rd party fucked up. Slow clap Eye4Fraud.  You may just as well go bankrupt at this point, given that you failed at very thing you exist for…

SkyShowtime and how all streaming can go fuck itself

I’ve been seeing billboards about SkyShowtime because this service apparently came to my country recently. Being fed up with lack of content on Netflix and Disney+, I’ve decided to check it out. Wow, so there is CSI on it. I loved that show, but due to life things, I missed bunch of episodes. I’d love to binge watch all of CSI episodes from very beginning to its very end. And then they only list episodes from like season 12 and upwards. Are you fucking kidding me? Ok, maybe I’ll check Law & Order: SVU, because I had same limited ability to see all episodes back in the day. Season 17 and upwards only? Oh fuuuuuuck you. WHY?! At this point I’m like, fine, I’m just gonna watch Halo series. Right? Like, it’s a new show and it starts from Season 1 Episode 1 because there’s just one fucking season so far. Click the thing on my laptop running Firefox on Linux (with that DRM shit enabled) and the service is whining how my current system isn’t compatible with SkyShowtime. Are you fucking kidding me?

I was ready to check some stuff and be subscribed for a month or two. But no, you utter fucks literally encourage piracy. Guess what, all pirate sites will happily serve me entire fucking CSI from Episode 1 to its final one for as long as there are some seeds to serve that shit to me. Same for Law & Order. And I won’t have any issues playing fucking Halo on whatever the fuck system I’ll desire. How in fuck are these companies worldwide success with such fucking imbecile incompetent behavior? Like fuuuuuuuuuck you all. You want to go legit as consumer and not pirate shit just to deal with more dumb inconvenient bullshit. If I just pirated the fucking content, I’d have none of these problems and inconveniences. How the fuck does this make any kind of sense?

This is why I haven’t pirated a single game for over 15 fucking years. Because I never had to deal with such utterly dumb bullshit. I give them money, they give me game. It’s so easy and convenient I literally can’t be bothered chasing game ISO image and then dig for the right crack that works with certain version of the game. In this case, piracy is inconvenient and I can’t be bothered with it. Meanwhile all the streaming services are ramming head into wall with this inconvenient fuckery that just makes you want to just download shit from somewhere and watch it in fucking peace. Like, come on, is this 1995 or 2023 ? I don’t remember being so inconvenienced by fucking VHS tapes and we had to go to a nearby town to fucking rent them back in the 90’s. You’d think we’ve progressed somewhere in this consumer obsessed world run by money, but nope. Nothing fucking changed in the movie industry. In fact it just got worse from the looks of it.


I’ve now also tried spoofing user agent in browser and the fucking thing wouldn’t work with ANYTHING. Setting it as Windows with ANY browser agent, be it Edge, Chrome or whatever, the dumb SkyShowtime keeps whining about unsupported device. You fucking pile of wanking dicks. WHY?! Why the fuck is watching of movies not allowed in Firefox on fucking Linux? You have the fucking DRM module there for this fucking purpose you utter fucking morons. But who the fuck cares, I’ll just go on PirateBay and watch fucking Halo in peace on my fucking Linux laptop without your stupid ass whining. Congrats, you solved piracy by blocking Linux users!

Got the Galaxy S23 Ultra and here’s 2 things that are bothering me so far

I was actually waiting for new Galaxy phones for almost half a year. Was decided to buy iPhone 14 (I had iPhone XR at the time), but the price hike and lack of new things on base models, I decided not to go that route and instead decided to go with Samsung this time around (I like both, iOS and Android so switching between both is no issue for me). There were already rumors and leaks about new Snapdragon powered Galaxy phones even in Europe, so I decided to wait. And here they are and they really are very good. Still not sure if it’s 1300€ “very good” as I’ve never in my life paid this much for any phone, but I intend on sticking with it for very long thanks to good Samsung software support so I can justify that over buying 2-3 lesser devices in same time for about the same money. Aaaaanyway…

OneUI’s App Drawer weirdness

This one is actually really weird. Samsung’s OneUI offers tons of tweaks and settings to really tailor phone the way you want it. But for some reason they insist on using app drawer that only knows listing of apps in multiple pages. Coming from Xiaomi where app drawer is a continuous list of apps in alphabetic order in grid array and iPhone that actually has alphabetical list, this one feels really awkward and there is no way to change that. To open App drawer, you pull the display down and then you need to swipe left and right opposed to continues downwards swiping I was used on Xiaomi’s MIUI. It’s just not fluid and convenient and to make matters worse, it remembers on what page you left of last time which makes returning to it very inconsistent and unpredictable. Why can’t we just have option to have all apps in a continuous alphabetically ordered scrolling list. Not grid but a list. With alphabet index on the side so you can quickly drag on letter index to jump to list where app starting with certain letter is. Apple had that in iOS and I freaking loved that thing even though you could only get to it through app categories panel. It’s just more predictable and faster to find apps than apps in this grid multipage nonsense. Come on Samsung, just add option for this in the App Drawer settings. Grid multipage thing is just terrible to a point I organized everything in folders to keep all apps within a single page. Not ideal, but way better and faster to find app I need than hunting for it on multiple pages in overwhelming grid lists.

The way how Camera app captures photos

People seem to complain about shutter lag for years  on Galaxy phones and I’m not going to lie, I hesitated a bit deciding for Galaxy because of this. Imagine paying 4 digit Euro price and have camera with mega lag when capturing photos. Well, as it turns out, this is not really a problem, but a solution to it leads through installing another app just to flip a settings switch which is a bit annoying.

For some reason, Samsung’s Camera app captures photos in a different way than other vendors which creates this “lag”. All other phone makers that I know start capturing photos the moment you touch the display on the “Shutter” button (take photo button). Samsung on the other hand, for whatever weird reason actually starts capturing the photo when you lift the finger from the display after touching the “Shutter” button. Which means to snap a photo quickly you need to also quickly tap the “Shutter” button and not just pressing it. You either have to train your muscle memory to have quick taps when capturing photos or you have to install “Camera Assistant” app from Good Lock Labs on Galaxy Store and use “Quick tap shutter” setting that makes snapping of photos happen the moment you touch the display, without having to as quickly lift the finger to actually do it. It’s really weird design decision on Samsung’s end and even weirder that this “Quick tap shutter” isn’t a setting available in the Samsung’s own Camera app in the first place.

Samsung, where is my white color for Galaxy S23?

Ok Samsung, you fucking donkey, you launch new Galaxy S23 series with all the fancy stuff and then you decide to launch devices only in Phantom Black, Green, Levander and Cream colors. Where the fuck is WHITE color? I don’t want stain looking “cream”. I want WHITE. What the hell is up with that? Imagine a car brand that releases the car without black or white option? But you get “cream” option. Yay?

White just looks so premium and different, but not too flashy. And it’s the opposite of fingerprint and scratch magnet as it can be all nasty, but won’t show on it. Just why? I freaking don’t understand it who asked for ugly stained cream over brilliant white color? WHO?! Like the idiotic European price of these devices wasn’t enough, you fuck it up with dumb color selection too. Ugh. What an absolute monumental flop.

Extensions button in Firefox 109, fucking why?!

Seriously Mozilla, fucking WHY?! Who specifically asked for this shit?


Firefox isn’t dumbass Chrome with its idiotic locked down “Google knows it better” stupid ass interface where only thing you can do is disable fucking Home button. You (Mozilla) already had fully customizable “drag buttons you don’t want out of the view” option in Firefox and if you didn’t like something, you simply dragged out of the view into a “holder” panel where you could return any button back if you wanted. But noooooo, your infinite wisdom decided to copy fucking Chrome again and put another pointless button into my view that I can’t hide or remove. Even though there is already “Add-ons and themes” button in the hamburger menu that takes just 2 clicks to access. Lets don’t forget how NO ONE needs to access extensions controls every minute of the day and if you fucking do, you probably already put that particular extension into toolbar yourself, making this dumb Extensions button totally meaningless and just wastes another slot in the interface. How fucking stupid are you Mozilla? Stop fucking jerking off to your stupid retarded telemetry and think for one god damn fucking minute for a change and stop making suck moronic pointless dumbass design decisions and stop being a stupid Chrome’s bitch and just do your thing. No Chrome user will swap to Firefox if you copy their bullshit, they’ll swap for literally every other reason Firefox is better than Chrome. What you’re doing is just pissing off existing Firefox users. Again, FUCKING WHY?! It’s like you want us to try alternatives and eventually stay with them because of such fucking stupid changes no one asked for.

And yes, first thing I did was go into about:config panel and look for anything related to this and couldn’t find anything to disable this bullshit. If you happen to know a control switch in there that disables this shitty Extensions button, please, do let me know so I can add it to my Firefox Tweaker and disable this garbage trash out of my view.

Android 13 update borked Poco X4 GT’s bluetooth with Smart Band 7 Pro :(

What the hell Xiaomi? Poco X4 GT and Xiaomi Smart Band 7 Pro worked like a charm, but ever since I received stable Android 13 update on the X4 GT, Xiaomi’s OWN Smart Band 7 Pro keeps somehow disconnecting and then failing to automatically reconnect back.

For some stupid reason I keep getting pairing dialog where I need to confirm pairing on both and to make matter worse, the damn thing doesn’t even work. I can confirm pairing and it won’t pair. I have to then manually turn off bluetooth on the phone, pairing fails and when I turn bluetooth back on, they suddenly get connected back together like nothing happened.

I’ve contacted Xiaomi support and unfortunately they weren’t very helpful. I did a factory reset for them and now NFC doesn’t work anymore with my banking app even though it did before and it didn’t fix anything. In the end they just directed me to a local service center. Ugh.

I really like the Poco X4 GT. Relatively cheap but really nice phone and Smart Band 7 Pro, while it has bunch of compromises, it’s also really nice and I enjoyed using both, but now the experience is so messed up it’s really not fun to use it when it keeps randomly bugging me with stupid pairing thing. Anyone else having same problem?

Imagine being dumbass like this…


Had some problem with login on GOG support webpage, asked on Reddit and some guy replied I should clear the browser cache. Knowing it’s not suppose to fix anything, but tried it anyway for the sake of it and then replied that to him. Then came this fucking SheKilledHerself idiot whining about my “attitude” of being angry and ignorant. Really? Which part of my reply was angry (literally how?) and which part of it was ignorant considering I ACTUALLY FUCKING TRIED JUST THAT. Eh?

And that isn’t even the cherry on top. Whole post spiraled into downvoting of my comments and 2 dumb users bitching about my attitude when I told this idiot to fuck off. And then clowns point at my last angry reply and whining “see, the angry reply!”. Wow, really dumbass? That wasn’t my initial comment that you whined about, it was AFTER you were acting like an absolute illiterate smartass and I called you out on it.

Why is internet always full of morons like this and somehow, they always manage to find my fucking posts somehow? And fun part, they literally contribute less than nothing. They never talk about the problem I had, their entire whining is offtopic bitching about my attitude spamming the entire thread with worthless useless posts. Go eat shit you fucking cretins. Don’t you have anything better to do than spam comments?


CDKeys “My Orders” page serving plain text gibberish?

Anyone else having this weird problem with CDKeys page? Entire webpage works fine, except “My Orders” menu inside user account profile. When I click My Orders button, it just serves me webpage in plain text instead of actually rendering it. Been talking to their support for days and apparently no one there knows how to go to that menu and fucking check it. I’ve tried in all the browsers that exist, on Windows, Linux, on Android, I’ve tried using 2 entirely different ISP’s, with adblocking and without, same fucking shit. It always serves me that page in plain text for some fucked up reason. And to make matters worse, I can’t redeem any game I buy because of this shit.

Can anyone who also uses CDKeys check this for me? Go to your profile and click on “My Orders”. Specifically this page:

If anyone else has it rendered in plain text instead of seeing a normal page, please let me know. Thanks

NVIDIA is playing it dirty with naming of RTX 4080 cards

If you’re in a market for new graphic card, pay attention to how NVIDIA is marketing the latest RTX 4080 series graphic cards.

Everywhere it’s being plastered how NVIDIA launched RTX 4090, RTX 4080 12GB and RTX 4080 16GB. And to a casual consumer, just going with model that only has 4GB of RAM less but costs 300 bucks less. But reality is, it’s not just memory capacity despite NVIDIA making you believe that way.

RTX 4080 16GB:

CUDA Cores: 9728

Memory bus: 256bit

RTX 4080 12GB:

CUDA Cores: 7680

Memory bus: 192bit

What this means is that you’re not just buying same card with less memory. No, you’re buying ENTIRELY DIFFERENT graphic card. Some are even poking the idea that this 12GB model is suppose to actually be RTX 4070 or even lower, but NVIDIA, in an attempt to jack up prices intentionally positioned it this way, so they can cut down actual RTX 4070 when it comes out even more and still charge insane price for it.

I’m not going to lie, NVIDIA makes quite a lot of really good tech. And I like new tech. But I just can’t get past how shamelessly they are going out ripping of people by intentionally make their products deceptive to casual consumers. Especially after we’ve all been saying to everyone how crazy memory capacities are meaningless for most users…

So, just buy RTX 4080 16GB straight away and call it a day? Not quite. My advance right now is, just wait for AMD to launch their Radeon RX 7000 series and then see. The whole DLSS 3 4x performance promise sounds great, but never buy anything based on a promise, because DLSS 3 may end up depending on implementation and it’s questionable if it’ll just instantly work in all DLSS 2 powered games. If not, that means you’ll again have to wait for ages to get that promise.

And RTX 4000 series cards come with hefty baggage. Literally. Their heatsinks are absolutely insane in size. We’re talking 3+ slots being a standard now. Power consumption has also been increased so you better have a good power supply. And of course, jacked up prices across the range. Which NVIDIA always plays it off conveniently by what I can only assume intentionally leaking way higher prices before launch and when launch of new product comes, they announce somewhat lower price, but still higher than for last generation and everyone is like “wow, I was expecting it to be 2000€ for RTX 4090, but it’s just 1600€ now, that’s not so bad”. It’s fucking clever, I’m not going to deny it. Make people mentally prepare for the worst with ridiculous prices through “leaks” and then announce lower price that’s still higher than last time and people will be more willing to accept the jacked up price. Fuckin clever. And fucking deceptive, just like 12GB and 16GB memory capacity on RTX 4080…

Just wait for AMD to release RX 7000. It can only get better for everyone if people just wait for competition. I’m not expecting RTX 4000 cards to suddenly drop 500€ in price if AMD beats them badly, but anything helps. So, lets wait and see.
