Category Archives: Rants

My personal rants over idiotic, dumb and stupid decisions made by others. Or myself.
May (or most likely will) contain lots of swearing, the F words and all the other words not appropriate for little children.
You’ve been warned (not that anyone cares lol)!

Banned again from Vivaldi forums XD

Ahaha, you can’t make this shit up. So, I got banned again from Vivaldi forums.

First I got banned because dumb moderators got butthurt over perfectly civil feedback I gave them. Because they arrogantly just banned me straight away I ranted about it here on my blog. Because why the fuck not? If they don’t allow me to respond there, then I’ll do it here, on my terms. And some lovely chap from actual Vivaldi team got in touch with me, thanked me for feedback and unbanned me.

Days and weeks have passed and I didn’t post anything on Vivaldi forums since then. Today,  get e-mail that I was banned from Vivaldi forums (again) for, wait for this shit… coz I was rolling on the floor for whole hour after reading it XD

This is the reason why you have been banned:

Violating Terms of Use / Offensive language at https://rejzor.wordpress.com/2018/10/02/vivaldi-browser-forums-are-run-by-fucking-morons/

First of all, I can’t violate your fucking ToS by posting a comment or rant OUTSIDE of your fucking webpage and secondly, stick your fucking offensive language up your sorry fucking puritan ass. Jesus fucking christ, this obsession with politeness everywhere is becoming fucking revolting.

The rant solely exists because of you fucking idiot moderators. If you weren’t such fucking arrogant retards, none of it would exist in the first place. I don’t even give a shit if I’m banned anymore, I don’t want to participate in such garbage community anyway.

MSI X99 Gaming 7 BIOS update 7885vHG is garbage

I was getting bizarre random system lockups, freezes, crashes, BSOD’s with things that just didn’t make any kind of sense like SoundBlasterX AE-5 drivers BSOD’ing on every cold system boot or games regularly but entirely randomly without any real meaningful pattern crashing the system like there was a power cut making it look like faulty PSU (which is impossible since I have a relatively new top of the line PSU from BeQuiet) and this was happening for weeks until I ran out of all software and hardware possibilities and looked at the BIOS that I’ve updated ages ago and which was designed to mitigate the Spectre/Meltdown nonsense. It’s version is 7885vHG and it seems to be the root of all these problems. I’ve downgraded it back to H.F version and all the mentioned problems disappeared. Not one crash, freeze, BSOD or anything.

I don’t know what the fuck MSI did here, but BIOS 7885vHG for MSI X99 Gaming 7 is absolute garbage. Not only they delivered it months after it should have been released, it’s also of terrible quality. And since Microsoft patched the vulnerabilities with OS microcode update, there is next to no reason to use this BIOS, especially since it’s such garbage. I also can’t believe my system is the only one experiencing these problems or people just never managed to figure it out it was MSI’s BIOS update doing this.

Well, now you know.

Vivaldi browser forums are run by fucking morons

So, few days ago I gave Vivaldi 2.0 browser a try, because I tried early versions and it was just too basic and lack of Sync was a huge no-no back then. It’s now generally pretty good, but still has tons of really weird design decisions so I wanted to help by giving feedback and telling them what should be improved and changed to make it better.

And that’s when the real shitshow began. Everyone started jumping on me like I’m taking away their fucking candy even though I clearly stated I don’t want things to be taken away, just changed by current settings still being available as an option in settings. After several posts of fucking defending myself for posting a honest feedback because you know, you want fucking browser to become BETTER.

So, today I posted a feature request for something, you know, like people there asked me to do and some moderator named Pesala whose IQ is apparently of average temperature in Siberia moved a browser feature request into Forum Feedback section and commented it with “uh oh tone down your language”. Nigga, what the fuck do you want from me? Are you retarded? I posted a feature request where you asked me to and described it as it is. The feature is fucking insufferably annoying and named in such retarded way it’s a fucking miracle anyone ever manages to find it. But who gives a shit about that bullshit annoying feature when someone’s fucking feelings got hurt. Fuck you, you retards at Vivaldi forums. Someone comes there with good intentions of making browser better by giving well meant feedback and everyone fucking curls up into fetus position because some fucking words hurt their feels.

I’m not Vivaldi’s enemy, their own fucking dumb fanboys are. So, good luck Vivaldi team, you’ll need it when you’re surrounded by morons like that.

I’ve deleted Vivaldi from my PC the moment this fucker banned me and I can say with 150% assurance I won’t be installing it ever again. Or recommending it to anyone. Excellent job Vivaldi forum moderators, brilliant work you’re doing there. Dumb fuck.

Don’t even bother with Vivaldi, go with Firefox or Opera. Far better browsers and their community actually fucking listens when you have suggestions or criticism and they don’t lose their fucking shit because someone said something over their fucking love child.

Farewell to TechPowerUp

After being a part of TPU community for 10+ years I have today fucked off from it permanently.  TPU used to be great community lead by W1zzard who’s an amazing dude from Germany. He’s doing hardware reviews, codes apps like hugely popular GPU-Z and even made apps for companies like Sapphire. Unfortunately his community got infested by fucking snowflake moderators who are perpetually offended and have to compensate their small dicks by shelling out warnings and bans for every fucking little shit they see. My behavior was apparently fine for over a decade, but now I’m all of a sudden “toxic”. Fuck off. Usually they don’t seem to have any fucking clue about the discussion they are allegedly moderating, but they still feel entitled to warn users because some shit offended them or they can’t handle straight fucking facts. If they at any point use the word “toxic” you know they are full of shit and you’re communicating with the dumb snowflake. Only these idiots use word “toxic” to describe what we call A FUCKING NORMAL CONVERSATION where shit like ARGUMENTS happen.

It’s just a shame such cool community went straight down to the bottom of the dumpster in basically a matter of 1 year thanks to dumb moderators. I don’t regret anything, I just feel sorry for W1zzard because few idiots will fuck up everything he worked for for years and years. It’s how basically all forums I know went downhill. Every single fucking time. First there are tons of geeks and enthusiasts who literally compete who will help noobs the most. Then SJW’s arrive and fuck shit up. People start leaving and then community simply dies because there is simply no point in such forums even existing if they are a desolate wastelands. Oh, sorry, “safe spaces” without any “toxic” behavior…

I wished W1zzard best of luck and thanked him for all the service till this day. He’s really an amazing chap and I’ll still be reading his reviews, but that’s it. I’m now moving to Linus Tech Tips forums, so you might see me there a bit more. Lets see if they already have snowflakes for moderators there…

WeSendit, is this a fucking joke?

Welcome to 2018 everyone. And it’s not even April 1st…

WeSendIt_A_Joke.png

How can services just outright arrogantly BLOCK Opera browser (basically a Chrome clone!) from even interacting with webpage at all? They just fucking not support it at all so fuck you user. Well, fuck you WeSendit, I’m not gonna use other shit browsers. Chrome is Google’s pile of spying shit and it’s still useless sack of shit with their fancy ass “modern” design, Edge and Vivaldi are too primitive and useless, Firefox still has absolutely no concept of touch control for my hybrid netbook with touch screen and fucking no support for any password managers on Android, not even under god damn Android Oreo with native Autofill support. Firefox Focus does, but has no Sync feature so fuck that useless shit as well. And there is Opera which for some fucking illogical reason is only used by tiny minority of people and has it all and makes other browsers look like a sad joke from interface and usability standpoint. It’s loaded with really good features out of the box, has stuff logically laid out, has excellent touch support, runs on Chromium engine so it’s as fucking advanced as Chrome, supports password managers on Android and has Sync, but services like this want me to switch. Fuck off. I’m not gonna. But I will drag you through bull feces for being fucking lazy fucks.

Devastating performance hit from KB4338825 update on AMD A9-9420 APU

For weeks I couldn’t figure out why my AMD A9-9420 based laptop bought in January 2018 became so horrifyingly slow just half a year later I can’t even use it anymore. Sure, it’s an entry level dual core laptop, but it clocks ridiculously high to 3.6 GHz and with single thread optimizations replacing multicore “Bulldozer” microarchitecture it was super responsive. It also has 4GB of RAM which is alright, but it also comes with a 256GB Samsung SSD. It’s not one of those crappy DRAM-less SSD’s, this is basically an OEM version of mid end Samsung Evo drives. Something between 750 Evo and 850 Evo. A well rounded package for not very demanding usage of music, videos, browsing and Youtube.

Except it became so slow opening Start menu takes 1-2 seconds and it opens in laggy way, opening simple JPG image takes up to 10 seconds, opening Opera browser takes like half a minute, playing 480p video on Youtube was lagging and 1080p30 was so slow it literally stalled the whole laptop and even moving mouse across the screen feels like it’s lagging and stuttering. All this at CPU usage of 0-5%. But feels like you’re having a 100% load on CPU by something.

I thought AMD drivers were the problem, but no matter what I tried, nothing changed. So I downgraded Windows 10 April Update (1803) back to Fall Creators Update (1709). And it was fine. Until it updated itself. So, after 5 total OS reinstalls, I managed to pinpoint the problem. This motherfucking KB4338825 update. As soon as it gets installed, laptop becomes the slowest thing in this world. I had to rollback from 1803 to 1709, but there is no way to selectively uninstall and disable fucking KB4338825 update, not even with the tool for this. And if I install April Update (1803), this garbage gets carried over automatically.

So, now I’m literally at a point where I can’t uncheck this update, uninstall this update and block this update from installing and fucking up my laptop. As soon as I’m on build 1709, this fucking update gets installed and fucks everything up.

If Windows Update worked like it did in Windows 7, I could reinstall OS, uncheck this update and I’d be using the laptop normally until I annoy Microsoft enough for them to finally fix this shit. But that’s just wishful thinking. God knows what else is screwing up my main rig because it often feels like it’s performing worse than i did months and years ago down to as simple things as moving mouse which just feels laggy. Sounds oddly familiar to this situation with my laptop, but since PC is so fast, it’s not as dramatic. But I can sense something is off.

So, here it is, if your PC or laptop feels like it’s entirely useless because it’s so slow (despite clean Windows 10 install), it’s because of this shitty update. I’ve left the report on Microsoft’s Feedback Hub, but I’m not expecting much because they won’t give a shit about a single user. Which just shows a sad state of PC industry. Linux is still garbage despite years of everyone saying it’ll overtake Windows and Microsoft just plain doesn’t seem to give a shit about the state of Windows or what its users want, because they know Linux is shit and we have to use their OS whether we like it or not. Which absolutely stinks as hell. And I run 3 systems, 1x Windows 10 Home and 2x Windows 10 Professional, all genuine licensed versions. Absolute fucking disgrace Microsoft.

What’s even worse, I used to have AMD E-450 APU, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD laptop and it became exactly like this at one point. Which is why I bought this newer, much faster one. Which yet again turned garbage slow with exact same symptoms. Do you know how annoying it feels that I bought a new laptop because some other update fucked up performance of that one for no logical reason and I thought it just got slow somehow? Unless Microsoft is doing this intentionally to screw AMD and subtly force people to buy new laptops and migrate to Intel because everything AMD gets slow as turd “eventually” thanks to these magical updates. After seeing this on 2 laptops with like 4-6 years of age apart, something is going on. And it stinks.

1.FM, fix your dumb password policy

Check this idiocy!

10charpass.png

The password must be fewer than 10 characters. Who the fuck enforces the max length of passwords? And more importantly, why?

Upper password length limit shouldn’t ever exist or if it does, it should be something like max 64 characters which is so high not even most paranoid people would complain about.

To make matters worse, their Twitter account doesn’t exist anymore and they don’t have any other contact. At all. Yay. So, here is their page of “fame”. Years ago I’ve complained about local ISP and Adobe webpages, now it’s this one doing the same nonsense in 2018 when I thought we’ve gone past this point already…
