Things that annoy the HELL out of you.

I just use Sublime Text with a terminal. Atom is a disgrace and a sickness of the "WEB ALL THE THINGS" movement. A code editor should not have any absurd performance issues on any reasonable hardware. I dislike vim and emacs because they're esoteric abominations and I cannot use bizarre key combinations/shortcuts to save my life.

Hey, JavaScript is nothing to be afraid of :P

 

My issue is the incredibly poor performance of applications that are little more than a WebKit instance, like Atom. JavaScript itself has nothing to do with it.

 

It's mostly because it's a new technology. It performs perfectly fine on most machines, just some OS and hardware combinations have problems. Using Electron/NW has a lot of advantages so I'm just glad I don't have one of those bad combos

The build process is taken care of with a build generator (e.g., premake/cmake for C/C++) for heavier things. Generally, if I were to release whatever I develop, I'd have to go back and create a build generator configuration anyway, since IDE-specific solutions are hostile outside of the specific IDE they were created with and oftentimes any machine but the machine it was built on.

 

Not to mention IDEs are just too heavy and cumbersome. It's easier to edit a configuration file, rather than dig through a dungeon of menus and use mouse-centric input fields for lists and so many other woes...

 

Eclipse has always performed really well for me. Coding in a text editor is too cumbersome for testing and debugging, I do like Sublime for HTML though.

Idk about other languages, but there aren't really any IDEs for JavaScript that have good debuggers. WebKit's debugger is the best by a mile, so I'd much rather run my app through iron-node if I want to debug it. Using a built-in debugger doesn't really get me anywhere.

 

And idk how much an IDE would improve testing. Maybe my workflow is wrong, but when I'm testing, I just type npm test into my terminal and it runs my test script. I haven't used an IDE since college, though, and back then I definitely didn't write unit tests lol so I don't really know what IDEs do different wrt testing

Eclipse took five seconds to open on my computer (Intel i5-4670 / Samsung 840 Pro SSD / FreeBSD 10.2). Opening any Java source file takes a minimum of two seconds to display. (And there is a pointless close confirmation box, too. Excellent UI design!)

 

Sublime Text takes less than a second to open. Opening the same Java source file (2 KB / 100 LOC) takes less than a second. Opening a 350 KB / 12,000 LOC C source file takes around a second to display.

 

Atom is worse than Eclipse, but it's not in ports or in the packages so I can't see how much more.

 

I very much dislike how incredibly bloated software is becoming. I use a multitasking operating system and would like to keep it that way.

[bleep] cars. Today I had *another* window lift go out. That will be the 3rd one I've replaced in 2016. I would just say screw it because I don't really roll down the rear windows that much, but the window won't stay up unless it is taped up.

 

It isn't that hard of a job, but it's getting old.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

I also hate cars.

 

As a pedestrian, cars are dangerous and driven by oblivious people. As a bicyclist, cars are dangerous and driven by oblivious people. As a scooter-er, cars are dangerous and driven by oblivious people.

 

Though on reflection car drivers probably hate me, since I'm only ever a pedestrian/bicyclist/scooter-er. I follow the laws very strictly, though... Namely using turn signals at all times and stopping at stop signs, which seems difficult for others.

 

They are also terrible for the environment. I could only justify an electric car, in honesty.

I avoid cars as much as possible when I'm biking or walking around. I don't trust drivers to be looking out for me when there's a strong chance they're messing around on their phones

There's two "no U-turn" signs at the main entrance to my neighborhood. Every few months the one on a concrete divider (added to make U-turns harder) is knocked down by a car making a U-turn and crashing into it.

 

I don't know how much clearer the indications against U-turns can be, but it seems a lot of people don't listen.

 

Not to mention how incapable people are at slow intersections... There was road work near this same intersection. The cars would not wait until there was enough room to cross, so when they had to stop, they stopped in the middle of the intersection. Is the car behind you going to someone overtake you?!

By 5pm I usually don't care about being a decent person anymore. Especially when I've been stuck behind a driver going 20 under on a 1 lane road for 15 minutes.

See, I'm the exact opposite. I'm a total dick from the hours of 6am-8pm, any other time I'm a respectable human being.

It isn't that hard of a job, but it's getting old.

One of my cars back in the US had a similar problem. The elevator on the driver's side broke. At first it was so that the window just wouldn't close all the way, leaving about a 1 inch gap. Later on i'm not sure what happened but gradually the gap became larger to about 5 inches, and then one day it just went all the way down. My friend and i actually ended up taking the door apart and jammed a plastic cup (very hard plastic of course) stuffed with newspaper and all taped-up, into a hole that somehow managed to keep the window all the way up. Well, there was still a very tiny gap but it was hardly noticeable. And because the car was convertible the sound of the wind coming through the tiny gap was pretty much also unnoticeable. Quick and cheap "fix". Only downside was that we could obviously never use that window.

When i meet a girl/woman i get along with well and have things in common, and then she talks about spending time with her boyfriend. It might be something many people encounter, but it's still annoys me. Forever alone.

Shouldn't annoy you.

 

To elaborate.. not her prerogative to immediately inform you of a significant other. Shockingly, humans are allowed to speak to one another without [bleep]ing.

I love that spam accounts are taking the time to read the threads and format their spam to be related to the topic. Like, isn't the point of spam to just get the message out there as many times as possible? Seems like that would slow you down a lot

I think we've entered a new era of spam bots that can tailor their posts. Scary future we live in. Thanks cleverbot

Yeah, I guess that could be a neural network generating the text. Seems like overkill, but hey, who am I to judge.

I think it's rather a poor bloke from Zimbabwe doing it, text is too coherent for a bot.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc
