I'm not sure this screen is advertising what it's developers intended.8
What is with the current trend of hiding the content of the webpage that you have gone to visit under a 'continue reading' button on mobile?
For example, Huffington post article. Content all loads, then dissapears behind 'continue reading' button, showing only the first sentence.
I came here to read the article. I'm sure I want to continue reading..
Who the hell thought this was good design???
What is it with these companies and mandatory updates?
Microsoft with windows 10. Sorry your doing work? Nah, we've decided your going to update now! Sorry, we based our default update time on people not working late at night.
Philips hue. Wanna turn on your lights? Sorry, mandatory firmware update. You'd better install that before being able to see.
YouTube app on ps4. No sorry, can't open this, mandatory 80mb update.
FUCK SAKE PEOPLE.8
OK morning rant from yesterday.
Get into the venue, connect my surface to the dock, keyboard won't work.
Try more USB ports, try another machine, keyboard (corsair k70) is totally broken.
Disassemble keyboard, someone asks me a question, turn around and knock full coffee cup over my surface book.
Now I need a new laptop.4
Custom software deployment for a big conference in Berlin worked perfectly. Almost didn't need to open visual studio the whole trip.
That almost never happens.
Bye bye Berlin, until next time.
Don't attempt to debug a crash on startup using visual studio remote debugger over team viewer vpn using the worlds worst German hotel internet connection.
If you do, get a drink while it takes 2 minutes for the debugger to break.
