I hate it when people just randomly IM me and I don't know where they're from (I don't want to say something in pidgin when they're on the mainland).

today's pet peeve:

Computer builders who uses plastic ties to make the cables neat. Us computer repair people hate that because we have to bust out the scissors to cut that - and risk almost cutting the cable itself!

So when you're done what do you tie up all the cables with? And you really should be using side cutters instead

Yeah, I always thought that cable ties' primary use was to keep cables tidy...that, and as ad hoc handcuffs. Did you know you can reuse some cable ties by using a straight pin or needle?

I forgot how to make a computer tidy ever since I built a SFF computer.


Oh, and tonight's pet peeve: When people leaves a message asking about the status of their computer at another store!! The person sounded irate also, so I don't know if I should call them back and make them more furious that they called the wrong geeks, or let them march down to the other people and blow up on their face.

The (now shortened) Kapiolani Blvd. town-bound morning contraflow lane. Aaaacck!

It now "BRILLIANTLY" ENDS JUST AFTER McCULLY (Waikiki) st., forcing unexpected motorists to have to suddenly merge right, one lane over. I already seen a truck side-swipe another car there once, which almost turned into an ugly road rage. Someone almost side-swiped me this morning at the same place.

It should at least be coned off up to Atkinson Dr., so that town-bound motorist can split off to Ala Moana Blvd. But NOOOO... this idiotic merge placement negates the contraflow completely, forcing motorists who once split off have to rejoin the main lanes just several blocks down. A totally wasted (and potentially hazardous) effort.

It used to go all the way down Kapiolani Blvd., which makes perfect sense, but road construction near McKinley H.S. is now in the way.

I need a relaxing massage right now.

BTW...I still use lots of cable ties.

They're a little more expensive, but those velcro cable ties are a real winner.

There are also reusable plastic cable ties, with a little release tab on them; I've used them for decades on audio cables, phone wiring, etc.

My pet peeve for this morning is people who fail to see the inconsistencies in their own thinking. This lack of logical thought processes is a dead giveaway to one's overall low intelligence.

My signature usually highlights bad logic. I'm gonna change it to reflect some of the lunacy I have listened to this morning.

I dont know if anyone sells them, I used to see them in Dell's, but the little cable twists are neat. The plastic ones that have 2 knobs at the end that you just twist to secure or undo? (not the metal twisties)

Oh man, that was a headache.

Luckily I got the weekend to find some cable ties and make the computer nice-nice (another reason why I hate windowed-cases)

And to day's pet peeve is.... not having everything you need. I know, follow the boy scout's motto "be prepared" but its hard when you're running out of USB ports on your laptop and running out of options on how to get XP back onto a laptop with a broken CD drive.

I have two for today:

- When someone tells you something (in my case, my cousin told me to pick her up at 12 midnight last night) and that person either never calls you or she never picks up her phone.

- When there's a computer emergency and you get a rude awakening just to fix it.

I hope you charge the person who called double time for the inconvenience! Plumbers and electricians do that all the time, and I think you should, too. Besides, what kind of "emergency" can a consumer have that can't wait until the next day? I can understand maybe a business like a hospital that's operational 24x7, but Joe Blow? sheesh.

I dunno if I consider it a pet peeve cuz it's pissing the hell out of me. The noise from low-flying aircraft over the Punchbowl area on the daily. I dunno if its Greenharvest, military, commercial, whatever, but it's waaay too loud.

Angry Re: Pet Peeve of the Day

My pet peeved for this day is....,

Going down to do the laundry, & droped off my rags & a rug I really wanted to clean, & I really needed to use my rags, so I needed to wash them.

Went up to my door, to get my soap & coins, later come down to find out that some lady which is a neighbor of mine, took it out !!.

Now, come on!! did that look like it just got done, & ready to be placed in the dryer or what???

Get a clue lady!!, those rags, & that rug is still dirty, & you didn't even wait longer than 1 whole minute to just take it out !!.

She said that when she went down to wash her rugs, that there there something in the wash already, & she didn't see any one around, so she took it out!!!

WTF!! get a clue lady!! the laundry isn't even clean yet, & I didn't even start on it, & it was still dry!!

gawd!! I can't believe I have idiot neighbors living in my building!!!.

Couldn't she just wait about 2- 5 minites or what?!?!?!!!

GAWD!!.

Today's pet peeve is when teens/young adults put a modified exhaust (aka fart can) onto an automatic transmission car. My younger brother pointed that out when the car infront of us was always shifting at the same point - and we were in a park with speed bumps.
