Never ask what you would do with a bigger hard drive, a faster computer, or a faster Internet connection; because you will find that one day no only will you use it, but it will be required.
Recently I've been using Chrome to watch Youtube videos because Firefox doesn't get along with Flash on my PC. Not long after, they decided to change the comment system to integrate with G+. This has widely been seen as a bad idea.
For several days I thought it was just straight up broken, I couldn't comment on anything. It kept insisting that I had to log in, but I already was logged in, I couldn't see my subscriptions otherwise. Turns out that Chrome won't let me comment. Youtube (a Google product) won't work with Chrome (another Google product).
For some idiotic reason, someone decided that allowing hyper links in the comment section was a good idea. I now refuse to click on any link that shows up because every link I did click on was ether spam, trolls, or even a virus. The best part about this problem is that the report link doesn't exist in Chrome and only shows up some of the time in Firefox. Most of the time I can only report for really bad stuff like illegal content or harassment. That's fine for the viruses, but won't work for the spam. Spam isn't illegal, just bad form.
Then there's the unlimited sized comments. This I can understand, and I think this is also where the only shred of thought was put. If someone writes a 200 line comment, Youtube only shows the first few lines by default. The problem is when you accidentally expand one of the huge spamy comments and you have to scroll three pages just to hide it again.
This is just for those who watch videos. It gets even better for those who make videos. There is no inbox any more, at least not one I can find. Yes, the original inbox still exists (if you can find it), but no comments go in there. I don't get a lot of comments, so I like to know when I get them. The only way for me to do that is to memorize the current number of comments on every video and check the video manager all the time. I have 256 videos in my channel.
On a side note, I'm sorry to anyone who comments on any of my older videos. I'll never know you did.
Please or or whoever, for the love of sanity, fix your shit.
Tonight was different. When the sleep timer ended, the TV did the exact opposite of turning off. The volume cranked up and started blaring this terrible screeching noise and the screen started flashing.
I had just fallen asleep by the way.
The cat, thinking quickly, jumps off the bed, where she was also asleep, and disappears. I lunge at the TV and press the power button. Nothing happens. I press it again and hold it. Nothing. I briefly contemplate throwing the TV to the floor in the hopes of breaking it when instinctively I spin the TV around and yank the plug.
I hope a half an hour of sleep is good enough, because there's no way in hell I'm going back to bed.
And just to let you know, I did find the cat. She's just as freaked out as I am, but otherwise fine.
For example, I just upgraded to Windows 8.1. During the final steps of the upgrade, it insisted that I crate a Windows Live account to log into the PC. So I did a search and found the way around.
Knowledge is power and the Internet is a near infinite resource of knowledge.
