I Don't Like It Edition
- AWS has a new billing dashboard. I spent the first decade of my programming career working on accounting systems, and I have to say that this particular system is dogshit.
- Is Peter Pan more like a hedgehog or a galaxy-sized agglomeration of sardines? (Nautilus)
Proof once again that the leading experts in a field (in this case, neuroscience) are very often completely retarded.
- China has banned sales of Micron memory chips because they "failed a network security review". (Tom's Hardware)
Memory chips don't have networking, and don't have security. The Biden Administration's spokesmop is more believable than these idiots.
- Microsoft's Visual Studio code is a free framework that is utterly useless but has a dazzling array of third-party extensions. What could possible go wrong? (Programming Geeks Club)
Oh, yeah. Right.
- Let's put all the Python libraries created by all the programmers in the world in one convenient place. What could possibly go wrong? (Bleeping Computer)
Oh, yeah. Right.
- Google has no customer support because you're not the customer. (Vortex)
This is true even when you are the customer. We went through a similar situation at my day job when Google refused to assist us in any way when the only thing we needed to do was pay our bill.
- Don't buy HP printers. (Bleeping Computer)
Not only will they brick themselves if you try to use a less insanely expensive third-party ink cartridge, they will sometimes brick themselves if it's Tuesday.

But it does remind me that when I was in my teens & twenties, that style of absurd false dichotomy was something we found highly amusing, though I think we also tried for alliteration in the formations. "Are chickens like cheese or chocolate?" So "Is intelligence more akin to indifference or indecision?"

(This is missing at least one instance, like from The Two Doctors, with Patrick Troughton saying it to Colin Baker). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4Q0hlu1qt4
