It's okay now because my mum's okay. But I just feel sapped before the week even started. Thanks, of course.

UNHCR, your ftp is so damned slow that it is going to take me all day to get our files synced. Coupled with our slow system, I have a whole day of terminal lock.

I swear carrier pigeons would be faster.

That feeling when you start reading a long DNL prime comment, and it starts out good, so you up vote it, but then it goes in a completely different direction than you thought, and now you want to downvote it, but can't. You can't even take your upvote away Disapproving

EDIT: I also loathe when people post the appropriate hedge phrases in their writing, and then a responder quotes the hedge phrase and uses it to formulate a snarky response. Way to punish humility and nuance, guys.

Darn it, when I'm told by a very good friend that because he's married, he needs to see me stay single because of plausible deniability... this does not bode well for my dating prospects.

Mind you, I know this is a perfectly valid concern for my buddy, and I know his marriage is more important in the grand scheme of things than me having a chance to date, but it still rubs me slightly the wrong way.

Can't take another friend acting like there is a crisis or end of the world only to find out the situation isn't severe at all and they're just feeling a bit sulky (this is excluding friends with any form of mental illness).

It's one thing when there is a real crisis situation; texting me 8 times and saying "I really need a friend ,please come out and talk to me" to tell me "I've been FRIENDZONED ZOMG" with someone you weren't even dating/didn't express interest in, after 2 weeks, is also your roommate, and only said "I don't feel comfortable going further, I like where we're at", is just...it's not acceptable! It's not ok to treat each issue you have that gets resolved like you're about to off yourself! And when I bring up "Wow I was really worried, are you okay? " " Oh yeah I just wanted to grab a beer with you, it's whatever" NO.

Aiya, when a clearly baiting troll sounds like it's making sense about how terrible you are, while actually trying to mock people who make fun of you as well (yeah... it's both I think... ) one can't help but feel a little sad.

<mod> Wisp, mods have reminded people in this thread twice already in the last week that this is not an appropriate thread to rant about things you don't like in the DNL Prime comments. Please respect that request. </mod>

As further clarification, I personally am okay with the first part of your post because it's mostly about the mechanics of the site (not being able to change your vote), but the Edit is directed specifically at commenters. I went and looked up the definition of "hedge phrase" because I thought it was possible you were chiding me, which is exactly the kind of issue we're trying to avoid. (That is, making people feel others may be criticizing them without their really being able to defend themselves if so since this is a rant thread not a discussion thread.)

Thanks for the helpful insight, but I've known I've been the villain all along for half a decade now. I just wish it was a bit less Smug Snake and more Creepy Cool.

There's nothing like a random person coming up to you while at work and rambling about the most random topics, then jotting down information for you to follow up on and mentioning that they are in the building often so they can help you out with the unasked for homework they just gave you.
Found out I still only look 18 or 19, so I guess I did learn something from his speech.

Has anyone else noticed how the most counterproductively confrontational feminists are as often as not male?

(And fuck if it isn't hard to resist lowering oneself to their level.)

Rant +1! I've been called a "fake feminist" by certain males claiming they are feminists.  I especially tend to butt heads with "gold star" types; if you don't follow my exact guidelines on how to be an enlightened female, well, you're just part of the patriarchy! *smh*

<Mod> NonA, after multiple infractions, you were explicitly told to stay clear of comments touching in any way upon feminism. I'm not sure why you would feel that a random comment in rants is worth disregarding a very very clear mod order for, but regardless, I'm banning you for two weeks while the mods decide whether or not you should be banned permanently.</mod>

ETA: Given the repeated pattern of disregarding and trying to get around mod instructions and general forum acceptable behavior even after multiple warnings, we've decided the ban will be permanent.

Totally immature "that's life" rant: that the world is so big, and so full of things to experience, and yet there just isn't time to do everything, and wanting one thing can be in direct conflict with something else. I want to be an author, and a great costume maker, and be fluent in at least 3 languages, and live in Tokyo, and live in London, and be a fantastic programmer, and have a cozy house with 3 dogs and kids all at once. It just isn't possible, and it's so unfair!

^ I'm in a similar mood after tallying all the possible points of failure and obstacles past the one I've never passed. Life's too short for patience and too long for complacency. I'm sick of rolling the boulder, but there's nothing else around here that rolls. We stay because / we don't know where else to go.

There is nothing more infuriating than your router taking a dump when you have a deadline and spending most of your morning setting it back up than getting shit done. silent

OK, seriously, are there ANY women on Tinder who don't charge by the hour. Literally every single match has messaged me with a rate.

DUDE, OMG YEAH!

And any women I do find who seem like actual living humans don't respond. Ever.

I had two needles on my coffee table earlier tonight. Now, I only have one.

Somehow I'm sure the other will turn up eventually...

We have a meeting in two hours. Why are you just sending out the survey you want everyone to answer with true, insightful solutions that will break up the clique mentality and bring the team closer?

I'm all for giving immigrants but if they have a heavy accent and/don't speak much English please don't put then in a job where they onteract with customers. I always have trouble understanding them, and then I feel like the bad guy for not understanding them.
