How very fucking cute. I just spent half an hour debugging connectivity problems on my neighbours computer — she could access the (HTTP) login page in our network, and all other types of traffic, but any HTTP connection to the outside would just die without any explanation. I went through the usual routine of gutting Norton’s Internet Shit, to no avail, then went to diagnose network connections, which wasn’t exactly helped by the fact it’d crash every time I got near the network properties capplet (yay Vista).

I went into the safe mode (with networking) boot, where I could access the network properties, but the network did fuck all. Finally, thanks to her telling me (up front) that she installed MSN yesterday to be able to talk with someone, coupled with a ridiculous (and obviously unlabelled, that’s be too easy) popup after one reboot, stating:

The Family Safety service has been disabled. Please ask the adminitstrator of this computer to enable it. Until it’s enabled, you will not be able to browse the internet. [The fuck!?]

I was able to track it down to this brilliant MS service. I have no fucking clue what it’s supposed to do, but I know what does — kills your internet without any way to turn it back on. Thankfully you can uninstall that piece of crap, which of course restored law and order. Well fucking done, MS, that’s exactly how your non-technical users are best served. Twatmonkeys.


The word for today

… is whatever. A bit sad, but mostly glad to have it over finally.

PS. I apologise for my lack of reply on what exactly I dislike about git, I promise to do it when I have less taxes and friends moving out to take care of. In the unlikely event that you care, the RSS feed will tell you when I have posted a comment / post on that (I will see how much content can be squeezed out of this).

Smug git weenies

It’s things like this that make me wish there was a compulsory smack in the balls before people are allowed to use git.

I fucking hate git

I hate how it requires me to go through a 14-years training routine in Tibet before I can do something as simple as succesfully checkout and keep up to date something that’s 1) a mere dependency 2) I am building using automated tools, for fuck’s sake, and how its author, its users, and the goddamn tool itself can’t fucking NOT try to convert me to their vastly superior world view when I just want to move along and not care. I found my VCS already, so would you kindly leave me alone and go fap to your perfect tool somewhere else?
