I frankly just don’t get it what’s going on through Microsoft’s mind. Or designers in it designated for this portion of Windows 10. I’ve just installed latest build 1903 RTM because I heard they made changes for easier language selection. And I’m “happy” to report they haven’t changed a single god damn thing.
I just don’t understand what’s so bloody hard to make it work right for NON-ENGLISH users who want interface in fucking English!?!?!?!?
Windows 10 has several language sections that affect how it looks and works:
- interface language (Windows interface and elements)
- apps language (Microsoft Store apps)
- region (time and date display etc)
- keyboard language
- language for non-unicode apps (Win32 apps)
Now, I want just ONE simple setup for my Windows 10:
- Interface in English US
- Microsoft Store apps in English US
- Region set to Slovenia
- Keyboard language set to Slovenian (just 1 keyboard setup)
- Non-unicode apps in Slovenian (because of special characters that are not found in English)
Sounds simple, right? Well, it isn’t because stupid Windows 10 keeps on fighting itself between these 5 settings for some dumb reason. Set interface to English US and apps to English US and it will also fuck up time and date formatting into American nonsense and when you change the region to Slovenia to fix that, it fucks up the apps language for some illogical stupid reason. And then you change apps language back to English and it changes the region settings again to English, fucking up time and date formatting YET AGAIN. And don’t get me started how it keeps on fucking up keyboard setups and bloody endlessly adding English US keyboard next to Slovenian and showing stupid keyboard language switching button in taskbar that I absolutely hate and don’t want to see.
I mean what the fuck Microsoft? You turned something that should be simple and straightforward to set into absolute nightmare for us users outside of America. Why? You know, there are people in this world who want Windows in English, but support for their own language at the same time because we have different (better) time and date formatting and use letters that don’t exist in English alphabet. And that’s it. Why is it just assumed that if I’m not English that I want or need whole fucking thing set to my native language? I don’t hate my language, but I certainly don’t like it for computers because terminology for computer stuff is just weird in my language and often words are WAY longer than in English which is super annoying and often breaks interfaces and makes communication harder since I mostly talk to people in English and I need Windows in same language if I need to guide them through it or even show screenshots of it. And what’s even more annoying is having entire Windows interface in English, but Microsoft Store apps are in Slovenian because of language/regional settings. It’s just pushing my OCD into a mental breakdown mode when it does that.
And I have to go through all this fuckery to set it and I bet I’ll get stupid ass keyboard language switch button in taskbar the next time I’ll run CS:GO or some other app because that game always spawns that shit by automatically adding English US keyboard for some reason and it drives me insane.
Just make this thing right so I can just simply set what I need without settings conflicting each other and adding things automatically. It’s annoying and makes no sense. Damn it, it’s been since Windows 8 and that was back in 2012! Come ooooooon Microsoft!
When I was deciding to go with iPhone I only checked if browsers I like are available on iOS. Not knowing the browsers that were available are just a faint shadow of themselves on other platforms like Android or Windows.
There are 3 massive and critical issues I have with state of web browsers on iOS.
No default browser option
You can have 10 browsers installed and dumb ass iOS will ALWAYS open all links in Safari with absolutely no way of having one browser as default that would handle everything. Android had this for so long I don’t even remember when it was first introduced. Hey Apple, year 1995 wants your stupid ass logic back. Not even Microsoft was this bad when shilling Internet Explorer and here we are in 2019 with you pulling shit like this. It makes even less sense given point 2 I’m about to make…
Web browsers are forced to use Safari rendering engine (Webkit)
Now, in a nutshell, that’s not a bad thing since Webkit is generally a good web rendering engine and is basically used by most browsers today except Firefox. Which is a problem. Firefox’s engine is also really good and the Firefox you use on iOS isn’t actually Firefox. It’s just few extra Firefox features bolted on top of what’s essentially a Safari browser. I know Apple wants to control everything on their platform, but this is just idiocy and is killing the progress and functionality. Same web browsers on Android are infinitely more advanced, with more features and just better browsing experience in general.
Next to useless web browsers on iOS
I learned that Apple has a “no 3rd party extensions” policy, fine, whatever. Rip that out of Firefox for Android and call it a day. Nope. Firefox on iOS is so damn limited and missing so many features and settings found on Android it’s not even funny. Opera didn’t even bother doing Opera for iOS the same way it is on Android. They just offer Opera Mini and that’s it. Thanks Apple for absolutely fucking up progress of browsers on your platform and dumb people are apparently just fine with it. Well, I’m not because browsing experience is absolute shit on iPhone and no one tells you about that when you’re deciding for iPhone. You have this expensive, the fastest hardware in the world and then you’re limited by garbage web browsers because of stupid Apple’s policies.
Come the fuck on Apple, it’s 2019 (yes, hashtag current year), you don’t need to resort to such dumb ass shit just because you’re “Apple” and that’s kinda synonym with your brand. Do better and for start to at least offer ability to set a desired browser of user choice as a default web browser so everything opens up in that. And then work from there to allow web browser makers to include more functionality, even if they can’t use addons/extensions like Firefox does on Android. Because the state browsers currently are on iOS is absolutely shitty.
I wanted to install AORUS Engine for my AORUS GTX 1080Ti and after installation, it just doesn’t run. At all.
So I checked event viewer and the damn thing is crashing because of itself. I thought my months old Windows install was getting dirty so I just installed it clean. Guess what, exact same result. It used to work fine, but now it’s just broken to a point it won’t even start anymore lmao. Get your shit together Gigabyte…
Faulting application name: AORUS.exe, version: 18.104.22.168, time stamp: 0x5c94a430

Tried version 1.60 that was just released. Same thing. Wouldn’t even start. Lets play a game how long it’ll take for Gigabyte to fix this shit…
I did met few cool people that I have as friends now and few absolute randoms that we joked with how we use hax and shit (really just calling abilities hax, like Soldier 76 Tactical Visor which is an aimbot or Widows’s Infra Vision that’s essentially a wallhack) or joked how Sombra is a hacker. We also call each other stupid shit or you just, you know, fucking rant when dumb stupid shit happens.
And there, apparently in the core of the Overwatch playerbase is this specific set of retards that keep reporting people because they purposely disable nasty words filter and then report people, they can’t take a joke, rant or I don’t know fucking what. I never said to anyone “yo faggot X, fuck off this game”. Not a single time. If I did it was at a character, like “fucking Genji again”. Which means a game fucking character and his annoying ass abilities, not at the player of the Genji. How fucking hard is that to understand? If I directed an insult at you, I’d call you by fucking name, not by game character name. So, because of dumb motherfuckers like this, game is bitching again about “abusive chat”. Go fuck yourselves, dumb fuckers. The moment I got that warning everything fucking dropped for me. Lost almost all wish to even play this shit anymore if my account is being threatened by weak snowflakes that can’t stop being offended. If I’m so fucking annoying, mute my chat or whatever, but reporting me for shit that mostly gets half censored and not directed at anyone but per situation rants, fuck off.
I’ve played many games the same way as this one and not once I got threatened to stop being “abusive”. Coz apparently, only in Overwatch it’s all fucking sunny days, bunnies and butterflies and everyone singing Kumbaya around fucking Zenyatta. This fucking world and people being unable to take a fucking insult. If it was at least fucking directed at them…
So, I got reported for “abusive chat” by “fellow players” (fellow players don’t report ppl over their personal insecurities ffs) whatever the fuck that means given this game comes with “Profanity filter” enabled by default…
So, there are apparently literally people being offended over words that come censored BY DEFAULT. Because I’m pretty sure that when I write “well, this round was shit” the people on other end see it as “well, this round was ****” (because some player even asked me what was the word in the end once). And people went out of their way to report it. Why? If you’re so god damn offended even over censored words, what are you doing with your stupid pathetic sad life? This applies even more if you turn off profanity filter and then bitch to Blizzard over words you see. Oh and boy I fucking hate people who write “gg” after every god damn game like some fucking generic robots even though they got fucked hard in the ass by enemy team without any lube… Vent it, rant about it. I miss days when everyone did this and no one gave any fucks. Now everyone needs to be coddled and protected from “mean” words. Give me a break stupid perpetually offended snowflakes.
Not to mention I directly talked to someone in ALL chat (not even directly to a person via private chat) only on 2 occasions, the rest were general joking rants like “great, we only got the shittiest heroes” in Mystery Heroes mode when enemy team was packing the best heroes, often even two of the same (like two D.Va-s) and I kept getting all the heroes I never play because I’m shit with them. Who are these dumb people who get offended over this? Who are you and why are you being offended over shit that’s not even directed at you?
Ultimately I don’t give a shit, I just had to vent it for 5 minutes, but they are really only punishing other players with this “punishment”. Mostly because I seem to be the only player who ever warns the team about enemy players trying to get behind us, like “um guys, Reaper is coming behind us on the right”. Well, happy reaping then for the next 7 days coz I ain’t telling you shit now lmao XD
I just hope this “silencing” doesn’t include friends in groups. Coz that would be retarded. There is this guy who I play with regularly and we’re the best team. I call him “Gangsta Hamsta” coz he’s rolling around in his hamster ball and I’m usually his dedicated healer. He’s one of the most badass Wrecking Ball players I’ve seen and would suck hard if we couldn’t joke around anymore, even if only for 7 days.
So, I guess, see ya offended again in 7 days… XD
I’ve been noticing for a while how shit Netflix is at recommending things to watch to me. And I’m not sure if this is just an European thing or is it so shit in US of A as well. They keep on sending “Netflix tonight” mails with movies I’ve either already watched or they keep on repeating same ones while freaking NEVER letting me know about actual newly added movies and series unless it’s Netflix Original.
The other day I was lurking through bunch of categories and noticed there are movies I was interest in, but Netflix never let me know they were added. Not even in fucking “Recently added” timeline. But they made sure to recommend me ARQ for the freaking 8th time…
So I purposely went out of my way to look for “what’s new on Netflix” by using dedicated “Recently added” screen. Guess what I got. A home screen with all timelines which you get when you open Netflix in browser for the first time. WTF?
And if I click on “Explore all” next to it I get this…
And if I select A-Z instead of “Suggestions for you” I again get the home screen with all “timelines”…
Netflix, stop dicking around, this is ridiculous. And they are planning on ramping up the prices. Are you shitting me? Not only Europeans get like 4x less content than Americans for higher price (coz of fucking awesome $=€), Netflix can’t seem to get their basic fucking functionality work right. Finding things that were added to Netflix is fucking pain in the ass and instead of just checking what’s new and adding it to My List for viewing queue, I need to dig through entire god damn library skipping all the fucking movies I’ve already watched and look for thumbnails that look new. Fucking hell. Get your shit together Netflix…
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:
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.
