I hate windows. I hate it I hate it I hate it. It's the most stupid, user-hostile piece of shit operating system on the face of the planet. This morning, I'm working on a bunch of open documents when windows, in its infinite wisdom, decides to delete all my desktop icons and file icons. I'm left with text, but no icons. Then it shovels them all over to one side of the screen and the text all starts blinking. I guess it was trying to refresh or something. In the end, it apparently gave up and just turned the power off to my PC. No shutdown. No "would you like to save your documents". No. Just power off, and fuck the user. So they can put idiot boxes in to ask you stupid questions like "are you sure?" but when it comes to something critical, nope - nothing. Just screw the user and corrupt all their open documents. Fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck!

Swine flu - we're all going to die.

Oh my god we're all going to die. Swine flu is going to kill us all! Just like SARS did, and avian flu, and the hole in the ozone layer...... Pff. Whatever. Get a grip people. Sure it's something to be concerned about, but the way the press are reporting it makes it sound like End Of Days.

I hate companies making decisions for me.

No Chris, you can't have a PS3 SixAxis controller. You must buy the new rumble-enabled Dualshock 3 controller instead. Why? Why can I not buy a replacement PS3 controller anywhere? Why do I have to buy one which is too heavy and has lousy battery life now? I hate it when companies do this, and Sony, it has to be said, are one of the worst. The original PS3 controller was lovely and light - nimble and easy on the hands. The Dualshock one is 40% heavier. Wonderful. So gone are the lightweight next-gen aesthetics, and back are the 1990's nasty plasticky housebrick. :-(
