Here's a quickie that grinds my gears.
When a piece of software asks me for the a hostname but expects a fqdn and when the bloody thing automatically fills in a fqdn into the hostname field!


HOSTNAME = doesmyheadin
DOMAINNAME = my.domain
FQDN = doesmyheadin.my.domain

If I'm wrong about this I fully accept it, but these are the standards I've been using which to me make perfect sense!
Bloody nonsensical bullshit modifiers.

    It makes no sense to me not using dots as separators in domain names... why?

    @lo98be I just used it as an example, at my work we have the domain ".isc.ac.uk", I just went with that :)
