Because this stupid Epson printer thing couldn’t get any more difficult, of course it is. I tried to print to the printer via a mac book pro, and found out the drivers are only for the very latest OS, which JUST RELEASED LIKE 10 days ago. OF course I didn’t realize this right away… nah, I was like,
“Sure, I’ll upgrade from 10.10 to 10.13 because it’s a mac and that doesn’t even sound like a major upgrade amirite? Fuck no, I’m not right.KERNAL PANIC
Fuck yeah. So installing new printer drivers turned into 2 days of fucking around trying to resolve this piece of shit problem.
Oh and fuck wordpress because I don’t know why it keeps rotating this fucking image.
I’m clearly having some sort of technology breakdown going on in my life. Is this a sign of spiritual sickness? Did I not make the proper sacrifices to Vulcan?
Epson software can’t find the fucking printer on my network. I can clearly see it on the network via router software, and I have literally connected to it via IP. I can print from it now. But the Epson software, and WIN10 says they can’t find the printer via printer software. How the fuck can you make a printer that struggles with wifi in 2017. It blew me away too – I saw all kinds of complaints about cannon printers having issues… wtf guys.
Why the ever-living fuck isn’t the NEXT > Button on the right?
- We read from left to right. So the concept of motion is left to right.. so why does choosing the rightmost button take you backwards?!
- This metaphor of pages turning, or moving places from left to right is so ingrained in this example, there is even a FUCKING RIGHT ARROW.
Back / Cancel should be on the LEFT, and Next on the RIGHT. Look, I can maybe see this layout used if the user is about to do something really fucking scary… maybe wipe a hard drive? But in that case you would probably want to highlight cancel.
I see this shit all the time, and I swear to god it started with oversseas programmers, and in the last decade has become the standard for idiot UI.
Oh hey a quick google showed me two articles:
Looking at the reasons for “OK / CANCEL” and they are stupid as fuck. Except for one… “Microsoft does it that way”. Which is a half assed argument. Not surprised that Apple does it correctly “CANCEL/OK” because they know half a shit about UI.
Well, I’m old enough to remember when it was done correctly, consistently, so fuck all you all. It should be CANCEL/BACK/OK.
Bah – they won’t let me set my active hours if they roll over midnight. Pretty fucking stupid.
I hate this crap. Following the provided password reset instructions won’t allow you to get a “strong” password, and so your password gets rejected. Never mind that it has 19 characters, upper and lower case AND symbols. Nope you have to put a fucking number in there too.
As you can see, I clearly have 2 of the following: Uppercase, lowercase, numbers or symbols. What they REALLY mean is you need, ALL of the above.
Even though I have a green check by the password, it still doesn’t get approved. Great job assholes.
And god I hate that type of error messaging at the top. For some reason I miss it half the time because I’m looking down at the password. Or if I had a previous error ( say passwords didn’t match ) it isn’t clear that I have a NEW AND DIFFERENT error message.
So yeah, fuck off.
