This comic strip is a rerun and was published first time in 2008, when internet data collection was starting to get attention. And where are we today, eleven years later...?
Oh, so when i want to open an attached pdf document in an email received and read in Outlook, I must install Outlook. Sounds reasonable.2
Programming embedded systems from scratch. All hardware, memory, timers, peripherals, etc, must be set up correctly at startup, and if you set even one single bit incorrect in any of the sometimes hundreds of 32- or 64-bit configuration registers, you are screwed. There is often no terminal that prints error messages to help you, but if you are lucky you have an (often very expensive) hardware in-circuit debugger to step through the start up code.2
Documenting. Starting Microsoft Word to fill in a preconfigured template. It contains two numbered lists, but the numbering incorrectly continues from the first list to the second. Right-click > numbering > Set Numbering Value > Start new list. Bang! MS Word fucks up the complete formatting, margins, tabs, paragraph spacing... But the list numbering still continues from the first list to the second.
I SO FUCKING HATE MICROSOFT WORD FOR WINDOWS!!!7
Here on devRant, there are lot of developers complaining over incompetent and ignorant clients and managers. But that made me thinking: have anybody seen any "client rant" site? That is, is there a place where clients and managers whine over incompetent and ignorant developers? It would sometimes be nice to hear the other side's version.6
