What pisses you off? [NSFW - language]
« on: January 03, 2013, 01:41:20 PM »
Well, everyone has been through it. You fart around and waste time and then you finally find the answer...

What pisses me off is API methods that don't work. I spend hours trying to do what should take minutes.

Here's a recent example:

Code: C# [Select]
  1. // This doesn't fucking work:
  2. //wv.LoadData (html, "text/html", null);
  3. // Spent fucking hours trying to get around that shit when I finally found this:
  4. // http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3312643/android-webview-utf-8-not-showing
  5. // Jesus fuck... why can't shit just work?
  6. wv.LoadDataWithBaseURL (null, html, "text/html", "utf-8", null);

Yes. That is what I write in my code. Or at least before I release any code that is open.

It's just damn annoying to waste so much time on something that has been in since API level 1 and I'm testing at level 12. Sheesh...

Thing is, this kind of stuff happens pretty regularly. :(

Another pet peeve is people that necro-thread things gone past 4 or 5 years ago... :P ;D

Overly complicated answers.

I kind of think that I should have been more explicit about "things" being programming things...  :'(

I just went straight for the lowest common denominator: people create things, people use things, people buy things, people imagine things, people cause things to happen

Get rid of people and things won't piss you off.....simple.

Wash your mouth out, Landcruiser, OKA, Unimog or nothing  :P
