Title: What annoyed you today?
Post by: lurkalot on February 23, 2017, 01:52:58 AM
Those little things that that really wind you up.  I'll start with,

Microsoft Edge Browser.

What a pile of $*** this is.  I must have lot all my favourites about four times over the last couple of months.  They just disappear.  :tickedoff:  Sometimes they will come back if you restart the computer sometimes they won't. Not sureif it's after updates that this happens, but it's almost like it's a fresh install when it happens.

Wish they would sort this thing out. Please.

It scores very low for me and I only rarely use it. Got stuck on FireFox some years ago and have never found any other browsers that measure up.

Brain power/function.

What really sucks is when you know what you are losing.
Something like Alzheimer's might be better, at least that way you wouldn't have a clue! (https://www.tinyportal.net/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ourfamilyforum.org%2FFamilyForum%2F%2FSmileys%2Fdefault%2Flaughing7.gif&hash=2f8bc4a6d3172abae4d1a12fec286c84)

I'm a smoker, although I'm trying to give up the nasty habit. 

Just found out the smallest pack of tobacco I can buy is now 30 grams and now costs me over £13.00 a pop now, instead of just over a fiver.

Perhaps the time has come. :knuppel2:

Me and my wife both stopped smoking about 2 year ago, we both use vaping now, much cheaper too.

Les, glad you mentioned vaping, I bought a very cheap blu pro kit 12 days ago to see if it would be of any help, and have to say it really does work.  I've only had about half a dozen real sigs since.

Now this being a cheapie starter kit, I'm thinking I need to move up to a proper system. Haven't a clue what to go for though, there's so many options. Some not so cheap either.

Well done to both of you for getting and staying off the smoke.  O0

We both went cold turkey, never even thought about having a cig since.
I use one similar to this one, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/E-Shisha-Cigarette-Lite-electronic-50W-2200mAh-Vaporizer-Sub-Ohm-Cig-Tank-Hot-/172451311866?var=&hash=item2826e630fa:m:mLSrunoUzISXsi9nP8sDicA

And we buy the juice from pound shop, I dont like the flavoured juice though, Lisa does sometimes.

Les. Thanks for the info, and the link. Not a bad price for the spec.  I was looking at the eleaf ones on amazon, but they cost a small fortune.  ;)

What annoyed ME today?

Riding the motorbike to work - drizzly and wet roads... nearly got run over by a tosser in an Audi who came shooting out of a side road with no warning.  'twas a puckering moment.....

Not today, but after the last Windows 10 update the Cortana search box has turned bright white, very annoying.  Sticks out like a sore thumb now.  :knuppel2:

BT usb wifi adaptor on my old PC.  That really annoys me. Works fine for a few seconds then stops.  Have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it working for another few seconds.  Make it very hard to update your PC like that.  :knuppel2:

My ISP sold me an "updated" router a few months ago. The problem is the old one seems to work better!

Strange isn't it. You often find the latest and greatest gear isn't quite what it's hyped up to be.  ;)

Only the gear from my ISP. If I buy it from a store it works great. LOL

Just got another one of these on here.  This site didn't really suffer from this error when we moved servers, but my Guitarist Guild one did.  Now that one seems alright, but this one has started doing it.  :knuppel2:

What really annoyed me today, and over the past week or so.  BT email, throwing errors at every opportunity.  Really wish they would sort their system out properly.  :knuppel2:

I stuck with Firefox forever, not using MS Edge or any MS browser for a decade or so.

Refused to use Chrome forever.  Now I use Chrome a lot and it has great features.

Sorry to hear about your issue.  It has been a while since I browsed on TP
Later all,  H

Windows update again.  This time took about four hours to update before I could get on to my laptop, then to find it's logged me out of everything I was logged into previously.  Now having to find login details for everything again.  That does pi$$ one off just a tad.  :knuppel2:

Restart in Windows 10. 

Mine takes about ten minutes before you can use the bloody thing properly after a restart.  :knuppel2:

Another couple of updates for windows 10 this week. This time it appears my wireless mouse is playing up, every few minutes it stops responding and has to resync itself. Very bloody annoying.  :knuppel2:

Backing up all my stuff on my laptop etc, and it's taking ages. 

Reason. 



Thing is, this morning this laptop downloaded and installed a update, and it's currently awaiting a restart. :knuppel2:

Looks like they did pull that update after all, it was a couple of different updates and they seem ok. Made me backup though, which isn't a bad thing.  :)

Windows update again. 

Some customers report that KB4494441 installed twice on their device.

I was one of them that had to install it twice to get the damn thing installed.   :knuppel2:

The download on mine got hung up at 1%!  :tickedoff:

Now I'll have to wait until my data 'bonus' time to continue the download. (2A-8A)

Doh, that's a nuisance Ken.  Hopefully yours will install properly first time.

Thing is, a couple of days ago these updates were sitting there waiting for me to restart so they would install, which I did.   Then today, I noticed the same update that had installed previously was downloading again, KB4494441 Checking the Windows build, it had the wrong build number, now after letting it install again it has the correct build number.

Stick this in google KB4494441 and you'll see others have had the same problem. ::)

Yepp, it can be a nuisance.
Mine is now having a 'black' screen problem that I've not checked out yet, so it may be the update or it may be the computer but I don't know at this time. After finally getting the update it took a couple of hours of fiddling and thrashing to get it back on, so I'm dreading the next restart to see what happens.   :(

Ken.  Dunno what's happening, but noticed there was another Windows 10 update waiting for me yesterday. Wonder if this is in preparation for the big one at the end of this month.

Maybe, but I've not tried to keep up with the news.
Getting ready to do a restart on mine to see if it gets the black screen on its own and not just on the update restarts... it's normally left on all the while.

Well, that was a fun couple of hours!  :D

Looks as though the Windows 10 update restarts are not the cause of the issue, it is instead the restart that is the issue. So, what is the underlying cause?

My next line of testing is checking for heat problems and I've installed the RealTemp utility to start tracking the CPU cores to see if they might be running hot.
