Sure, WhatsApp. It's not like humans have been using the 12-hour format for literal millenniums. Change it to this weird English format with no apparent way to change it back. Thanks.6
Me - Wants to transfer chat history.
App: "Log in to the new device and scan this QR Code to start transfer."
Me - Logs in on new device.
App: "Oh, a new device logged in? Let's log you out from your old device. It's not like this feature you are trying to use specifically requires 2 devices to be logged on at the same time while I literally don't allow multiple devices to be logged on at the same time. You're welcome."3
This is all the DHCP settings I get on this shitty router I got from my ISP. The other settings are more the less the same, which is trash. Don't even get me started on the interface.
The thing doesn't even support *WRT firmwares because it has a Realtek CPU.
Thanks. Guess I'll have to buy a new router now...7
YouTube: Wait 5 seconds to skip this ad.
Me: Ooo this ad looks interesting.
*Watches for 15 seconds*
Me: Nah I'll watch my video now.
*Presses "Skip Ad"*
YouTube: Oh you like ads? How bout I give you another one right away? And this time you can't skip it!
(For those wondering, I usually don't mind YouTube ads. I have Pi-hole running on my network to block other ads)7
I just got ghosted by a live chat support member... Guess they finally realized they are idiots.
This is what happens when you give me some incompetent generic support staff that not only doesn't know shit but contradicts his own statements as well.
Time to give them a call and hope they have some actual technical people how knows their stuff over there....2
I hate it when people sort numbers in a drop down box like so:
[1, 10, 11, 12...19, 2, 20, 21...29, 3, 30, 31...]
This is just pure infuriating...5
That moment when you see someone selling your eBay products with the exact same pictures, exact same descriptions on another site but with double the price.
Enquired about it and suddenly I get an eBay message.
What do we have here? It's the exact same username from the other site!
Now, how should I play with this guy....
*Insert evil smile here*2
An entirely sentient AI. Saved on a floppy disk.
People in the late 90s had quite the colourful imagination about the future...2
I need help...
Barely got any sleep for the past few days, don't even have the appetite for most meals.
I've dropped into another rabbit hole it seems...2
That feeling when they don't understand something, yet you know that no matter how much you explain about it they still wouldn't understand...
My heart can only take so much torture...5
What are the chances that algo will chain the following two posts along with this post? I kinda wanna see some devRant-ception...1
How to beat jet lag with style:
When your normal sleep schedule was so broken it became completely normal in the different timezone.
I used to sleep from 5am to 1pm in my country. With a -7 time difference this became 10pm to 6am.
Should I be happy?9
Of course there's one of these in the airport.
Why do they even use Windows for just a monitor I will never understand...4
I was at a family event, and you know that one aunt who won't stop talking and asking you questions? Yeah she was basically harassing me, and since family and all I can't really ignore her even though I really want to.
In comes my 3 year old niece, who just walks towards us like a badass, pats that aunt's leg and goes "no one likes to talk to you!"
I need my niece as my personal bodyguard and human filter.1
Me: make me a sandwich
Me: sudo make me a sandwich
And then I wake up and realize this "her" does not exist. I feel like I have a problem if I'm dreaming about these kind of things....3
Why doesn't height:100% of an element follow the height of its parent that has a max-height value set? Width works just fine.
A minor annoyance, but an annoyance anyhow.3
> Website registration form is a popup dialog.
> Fills in a bunch of details.
> Accidentally clicks outside of the dialog instead of register, dialog closes.
> Tries to register again, all details are gone.
Great, I have to waste another 5 minutes of my life filling your stupid form.3
That feeling when your housemate restarts the WiFi router without telling anyone while you were doing some remote work.....
Would it kill you to at least notify us? I would really love to see what happens if my other housemate was on a ranked CSGO match or something...1
"Can you zoom in to this teeny tiny spot on this photo and sharpen it like how they do it in CSI?"
"You can uncensor this, yeah?"
Yeah let me poop out the winning lottery numbers while I poop out nonexistent pixels for you.3
Should I go for $30 or $60 a year hosting?
$30 is a local company with very lousy specs but would (hopefully) be good enough for a basic website.
$60 is DigitalOcean's cheapest droplet with far better value when comparing the specs offered.
Basically what it comes down to is should I prepare for the future by paying twice as much?14
I can't believe FontAwesome doesn't have a devRant icon yet... And the request to add it has been there for almost 2 years now :/2

Spare me please…
It's not that I don't know how to use vim/vi, I'm just lazy to get used to it…2
It's funny to think that in a world where we keep telling ourselves that each of us are unique, we are always forced to follow societal norms. And I'm not just talking about stuff like sexuality, even people with small quirks have to bend themselves in order to be accepted by the masses...3
Whenever I get free time I spend it on another nerdy hobby of mine.
Anime is trash…
And so am I…1
