Rant

Peeve of the Day

So I select the items I don't want, and I click on Trash. And then I open the Trash Manager, and I select them again, and I click on Delete. And then I get a page saying that these items will be deleted, and I click on Delete again. Then I get a pop-up asking me if I really want to delete these items, because if I delete them they will be, like, deleted.

YES I BLOODY WANT TO DELETE THE BLOODY THINGS YOU PIECE OF CRAP!!!!

If you design your software so that it treats your users like morons, you will soon find that only morons use your software. And you will have to take all the support calls because everyone else will somehow contrive to be at lunch when the phone rings. Even if it's 8 am.

1 Shift-Delete. And there's a setting somewhere so it doesn't ask you "if you're really, really sure that you want to delete it, maybe you should call your Mom first, this is the real deal y'know, can't be undone, how about you sleep on it and try again tomorrow".

3 Real men don't delete files manually. They have a cronjob delete a random file every 10 minutes.
