I updated skype and teh experience was a complete disaster for a while.
They have changed so much that even when I got an incoming call, while in the past a popup box appeared with answer call icons now small icons at the top of the application light up which you click on to answer a call. It took me a while to see them when a call came through as I had to filter out all the other weirdness of the interface.
As for changing my settings - I have to click on my own picture to amend settings! Where on earth do these UI design and UX idiots get their ideas from?
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
imho, Skype is the poster-child for the mutilation of a useful application, used by millions, by an acquiring corporation ... to such a degree that it is kind of a bad joke ... compared to its original form.
Did I mention that it sucks ?
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
If only the misery ended with my gas and electricity provider...
Last week I switched to a new internet and television package.
I'm going from 40 mb/sec to super fast 200 mb/sec internet!
Anyway, I decided to check out my account to see how the order is coming along.
If they have that data on my account at all.
However, I can't remember ever logging in to that account.
The only reason I'm their customer is because my old provider merged with them.
So I go to their website and see if I can retrieve my password. Nothing.
I tried creating an account, which requires a customer number, from which they can tell me that I already have an account...
Last resort, forgot username or email option... But it works the same as the create an account page.
All it tells me is that my customer number already has an account and I don't get an email with my password
Seems like I'm going to have to make some calls
WTF is wrong with these companies?
In this case, I think your internet provider is run by the DNC (or maybe even Hillary Clinton herself). They can't find anyone's data/emails either.
