    I use Brave with ads, trackers and pop-ups blocked, and it often breaks sites. That's right, once you assert a minimum level of privacy, today's internet doesn't work. Anyway, might be worth trying a different browser with different settings.

    thanks. yeah, my computer goes through a work VPN so the solution is often to turn the VPN off, but that didn't work here. But I tried it in Chrome (I was using FF) and that worked. So the robots are safe from the water for now.

    Ublock origin in Firefox with lots of filters including cookie consent blockers work really well for me.

    The arms on desk chairs make it impossible to pull the chair in to the desk. And who ever uses their desk chair arms for anything? I'm not fucking Captain Kirk, I have to type on a damn keyboard all day. I removed them on my desk chair at home and it's the platonic ideal of office chairs now, but I'm in a co-working space today wrestling with these dumb chair arms.

    My chair arm is set at the perfect height to support my elbow on my mouse hand. This drastically helps keeping the carpel tunnel from popping back up.

    Whoa, never thought of that. I also had carpal tunnel in my dominant hand back in the day due to excessive PC gaming. I switched to mousing with the other hand at work and 20+ years later, I'm fully ambidextrous for productivity apps (but not gaming).

    How come when I post one thing I get the 45 second error, but if I actually do make another post within 45 seconds, it posts just fine WITH NO FUCKING ERROR MESSAGE!!!

    Example--this one.

    so weird how these bugs impact different people. I have not once received that 45 second thing, but probably 75% of my posts double post.

    I was getting the double message error every time I made a new post. None of those times were within 45 sec of a prior post. If I clicked post reply again it was a double post. Just navigate away, and it was just a single post.

    I never have these problems. I think it's user error.

    Customers that don't do things to help themselves annoy me. When they cost themselves money by not hitting free shipping thresholds and then whine about it is fucking frustrating. A couple of times a week... Arrggghhh

    This is something I can relate to directly. On the other hand my company started charging a shipping fee on every single delivery so I guess I’m currently more annoyed by my employer than my customers

    Spring in New Mexico - the wind. Going into day 5 of constant dry wind with gusts in the 35 mph range, which gets old. OTOH, next-door Texas is getting slammed with tornadoes.

    I guess we’re lucky the winter moisture was pretty good and the whole state isn’t on fire…knock wood.

    Dude you are cursed! I have yet to have one go bad, and they are everywhere in the house. The only place I don't use them is my beacon for some irrational reason. They've been flawless. Ironically I found 2 leaky duracells in my desk drawer yesterday, just sitting there oozing. Never been used.

    Seriously, use anything, anything but Duracell or the crappy rebranded Duracells (Kirkland)

    The cheap crap that comes stock with remotes, etc. No problem! But Duracell...

    Telluride Town Park's reservation system annoys me. Putting a campsite into your cart does NOT hold it, unlike recreation.gov; you actually have to checkout. So you go through the song and dance of grabbing spots and putting them into your cart, only to have them disappear when you go to checkout, lather rinse repeat until there are no sites available.

    FedEx was supposed to deliver today, when I was working from home. They punted to tomorrow. Since I’m on the road now, I tried to reschedule for Thursday, when I’ll be home again. They wanted $5.55 for that. They can suck it, and send a driver to waste his time with a door tag tomorrow.
