I hate it when there is an operating system upgrade and a program that used to work no longer works.


message 2: by Susan65 (new)

Susan65 I hate the rocking chair girl on Goodreads


JustJen "Miss Conduct" I hate when I get errors, and I really hate that I don't know how to fix the problems said errors are reporting


message 4: by Kim (new)

Kim Alan (KimPossum) I hate when the techs work on my computer and everything resets to factory defaults and I have to re-configure everything.


message 5: by Macky (new)

Macky (mactut) I hate that most of the time I have to bluff my way through because I don't really know what I'm doing.


Ije the Devourer of Books | 11187 comments I hate it when everything slows down or crashes.

Tj (bluesmokey) | 632 comments I hate that I understand computers so little even with a daughter going into programing.

And no hatred can be more than mine for Apple when it killed Final Cut Pro to replace it with ass-backward Final Cut Pro X, which is sheer drivel, and never warned me that upgrading to Mountain Lion would totally disable my $1,500 FCP v6.

And there's no going back… <-tears hair out->


message 9: by Macky (new)

Macky (mactut) I hate my ipad touch keyboard because it doesn't ever type the stuff I want it to. I have to keep stopping and correcting It! Just typing his comment has taken me a day and a half... OK slight exaggeration - 5mins!!


message 10: by Preston, Moderator (new)

Preston | 20148 comments I hate that batteries on pads and laptops can't hold enough power to last for weeks of use.

Macky (mactut) I hate that I bought a crappy netbook that is so slow I've named it tortoise!


message 12: by Roger (new)

Roger Kean | 17278 comments I hate my iPad touch keyboard because when it's off and the light catches the screen just right anyone can see which end I've been typing on and some clever peeping tom could probably tell which letters I use the most.

You had better not surf on gaydar, dudesnude or alike on iPad, Roger.:P

Yup I hate that too because the photos of the naked guys are so much smaller than on my Macbook Pro but the retina display of the iPad does show some interesting views of...um...detail :-)


JustJen "Miss Conduct" I hate that GR isn't letting me like anything today. :<


Ije the Devourer of Books | 11187 comments Same with me. I keep getting an error message and I hate that.


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

I hate when GR have not the like button and when I type the button, that is not showing it :-( and why is GR saying that there is no connection to their server, when I few seconds ago there was not any problems?!?


message 18: by Anil (new)

Anil (loykalina) | 303 comments I know this phrase shouldn't appear on this thread, but I love how the same acronym has a different meaning for each member. I thought JustJen meant gayromeo with GR when I read her comment. I had to check her profile to see that how wrong I was. :-o


JustJen "Miss Conduct" LOL. I hate that I had to look up gayromeo just to see if I was missing anything good. :)


message 20: by Anil (new)

Anil (loykalina) | 303 comments LOL!

I hate that Goodreads changes the default language to Italian on its iPhone app. I can't speak a word of Italian let alone understand complex sentences.

Get a desktop iMac with 25-inches


message 22: by Kendra (new)

Kendra (book_lover_too) | 337 comments I hate that my year old $1300 Asus laptop keeps getting viruses on it. That then leads my husband to jokingly tell me to stop looking at porn which I wouldn't mind so much if I actually WAS looking at porn. And don't say we should get an Apple. We have a friend who works for them who tells us that all the time, leading to long discussions between her and my husband on Apple vs. PC. I, personally, have no preference other than ease of use due to familiarity but since he is the techie in our house, I usually go with that.


Ije the Devourer of Books | 11187 comments I hate my PC at home. It is just so slow and problematic.

message 25: by Macky (new)

Macky (mactut) I hate that every time I go on my netbook a stupid pop up keeps telling me my comp is running slow ( I know that) then it offers to do a free download that will help it run faster and more efficiently but then when you download it it turns out its not free you have to pay a subscription fee before it will actually do the job! WTF?


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I hate spam.

Its good if you grill it and put loads of brown sauce on it..... Oooops you mean the other Spam!!


Little Butterfly I hate slow internet. It drives me mad to wait for the pages to load.


message 29: by Preston, Moderator (new)

Preston | 20148 comments I hate that I don't do backups as frequently as I should.


message 30: by [deleted user] (last edited Mar 26, 2013 03:51AM) (new)

I hate when kindle make problem when downloading a book or you can not open a book, because the screen locks up. Then I need to delete kindle and download all the things again, this take a long time :-(

Oh, that never happened to me #fingers crossed
Maybe you should contact Amazon about that problem?

This is the second time that have happened to me and the first time I contact amazon and they say the only way to kindle to work again was to delete and download kindle again, that work and well this time I do not need to contact them for I know what to do this time, *finger crossed* that it will not happen again.

That's probably MacKeeper, if you're running a Mac. And yes, it's free to show what a crappy state your machine is in, but expensive to download the actual stuff that supposedly speeds it up tenfold… only it doesn't. My iMac now runs slower than before, and a much better option is to use the Install disk, navigate to disk utilities ans let that do the clean-up.

If you're on a PC, you're buggered anyway ;-)))

Danni | 248 comments I flipping well hate the fact that whoever bothered to spend their time uploading my story to some torrent site, couldn't be bothered to spell my damn name right - ffs.

I also hate the fact that there are so many departments in the Complaint Department, I didn't know which one to put this in. Is it computers or people I hate? I just don't know any more!

You can post it anywhere you'd like because we don't sweat the small stuff because we are more concerned about YOU than where your complaint is posted.

Considering someone is trying to make money from your work I say this was a very important complaint so I would put it in the section for "Compassion and Hugs for People with Serious Complaints."

However, since it is here I'm going to send you a big, comforting, warm hug right here and now because I hate that someone is taking advantage of you.

I'm sorry Danni. I wish I could fix this for you. All can do is give you is lots of empathy and tell you I care.


JustJen "Miss Conduct" Dang, Danni. That just bites. So sorry you're having to deal with that kind of issue and hope those people will get what's coming at one point or another. Big hugs from my neck of the woods. :)

That sucks the big one! I'm sorry they stole your story to get people to pay to use their bit torrent or answers those endless surveys. It screws you and anybody who attempts to use those rip off sites for downloads.

Reaching out and holding your hand (in a very gay, comforting way.)

Hugs too,
Preston

Oh no!!! I can kick some butt if you need, I have some really spikey heels that would hurt. I have never understood why people take what isn't theirs. Then to add insult to injury, they can't even spell!!

I agree with Lucas, this was definitely a post it anywhere complaint.

Big hugs being sent your way, and here's to hoping they uploaded a virus to the site that makes it crash and burn! Or onto their computer, either would be fine.


message 42: by Danni (new)

Danni | 248 comments Thank you Lucas, Jen, Preston and Kendra,

In all honesty I'm not too bothered about it - while it's annoying to have someone use your stuff in that way, there's not a lot can be done about it and I'm very aware that if it weren't for t'internet I would never have the fantastic opportunity to have anyone read anything I'd written. Sooo I guess you've gotta take the rough with the smooth. The wrong spelling of my name hurt somewhat though!

That said, I will most graciously accept any hugs, hand holding, or butt kicking that is offered, and will even do my best to resist the naughty temptation to turn it into something totally inappropriate and not what was offered at all ;)

Danni xx
