I was playing Minecraft when my screen went all grayscale. I tried rebooting, but that didn't work. A quick Google lead me to a thread about this, and is appears Win + Ctrl + C will activate a screen filter of some sort. This might be NVidia, but no one in that thread was sure.
That's very annoying.
What do you get when you cross a joke with a rhetorical question?
The metaphorical solid rear-end expulsions have impacted the metaphorical motorized bladed rotating air movement mechanism.
Do questions with multiple question marks annoy you???
I hate poorly-implemented hot keys. The Windows Accessibility subsystem and the Language Bar are two examples.
The Accessibility hot keys actuate if you hold certain keys down for too long. This changes mouse and keyboard behavior, and there's no obvious way to turn them off.
The Language Bar, used to switch between keyboard layouts, has checkboxes for turning features and the bar itself off. Unfortunately, the morons who programmed it don't pay any attention to the settings. The outsourced asshats who do assembly on our machines have a habit of installing [redacted] keyboard and language support. We then get support calls from customers complaining about their machine switching to [redacted] and they can't operate it any longer.
I just saw an update notification the other day (yes, I am well aware I can hide/ignore notifications, but I always like to have the latest) for "Visual Studio 2017 v15.5.6 (<--- notice the "Revision" level update now!) is available."
So, now we are updating Visual Studio and making everyone download and reinstall because a new source code comment was added, or one line was changed? I mean, this is getting ridiculous. It's always great to push the latest out the community I suppose, but can't M$ space the updates out a little bit? It seems like there is an update available practically every time I open VS. So annoying.
Again keeping in mind, I am annoying myself on purpose because I keep insisting to click the "Flag" when it lights up...but hey, I've been to the "DefCon" series of conferences -- I am pathological about keeping the code on my computer patched.
