Trying to stay polite while spending ten minutes telling the tire guy my brakes are fine, I don't need anything else, and please just put the new tires on.

Not at the top of my list but I had to go through that just the other day. I'm spending 600 bucks for new tires and that's not enough... no, they want me to spend another few hundred for all new brakes too.
In spite of the fact my brakes are fine, and they just don't realize I had just had them all checked. They think everyone's some kind of gullible idiot.

I have loads more, but that's the most recent gear-grinding event. ;)

My ex emailed me yesterday and wants to meet for a drink next week...so I can meet her "super nice" new boyfriend.

Ha. I think I'll skip it. I am not nearly as easygoing as I pretend to be (with regard to relationships) and don't want to blow my faux-cool cover ;).

Oh man, she still wants you. Wants you to compete for her, that is, wants you to out-do her new guy, so you can be closer to perfection for her. Apparently you didn't quite make it the first time, but are close enough for her to be willing to give you another try. ;)

1) Royal Mail striking...first off, they should be glad to have a job at all when so many people have lost their's, preventing mail from getting delivered isn't exactly going to help matters is it? Secondly, what happened when the miners did the same thing in the 70's...that's right, the industry went tit's up and they all lost their jobs. The country is trying to get out of a recession, the last thing it needs is for mail services to be disrupted.

2) My dad forgot my birthday last week...for the 2nd time. He has become obsessed with his college course,which I'm actually quite proud of him doing, but it is all he ever talks about. Last Wednesday (my birthday) he phoned me to tell me about his course and ask about interviewing me for it...he didn't ask me anything about what I was up to so I kept quiet. He finally realised on Monday, called me, said 'sorry I forgot your birthday, I'll drop something off in the week', then talked at me for another 5 minutes about his f'in course...grrr!...sorry if that classes as bringing down another person but it has been driving me mad for a week.

3) X-Factor...I know several people, all very talented, that have auditioned for the show. They have all been through several rounds of auditions and only one reached 'the judges'. It is obviously a show geared towards viewing figures rather than talent. The voting is very dubious, there are always 'scandals' to encourage more phone votes (and therefore more money) and yet people still watch it and treat it as a talent show....It isn't a talent show, it is a TV show, scripted, edited and designed to encourage people to spend money on it. Worst of all it parades people like a freak show then destroys their dreams and humiliates them in front of millions of people.

There's quite a few things that make me go argh....

- Adverts that say "travel from 」1", then in small print (plus a 」0.50 booking fee) - no, unless I'm missing something, I can't travel for 」1 as I *need* to book it!

- Adverts that say, prices "from under 」5". So let me get this right, 」1 is under 」5, but 」100 is from under 」5. So really, it's any price they want and the statement is meaningless.

- Web sites that don't have a phone number, and only an online contact form, only to find that it errors when you try to use it.

- Windows Vista UAC and it's need to blank out my screen for 10 seconds just to pop up that useless box. I know, I could just turn it off.

- Holding the door open for people who don't even acknowledge you even exist, let alone say thanks.

- BMW not installing indicators in their cars. I think I'm yet to see a BMW indicate at junctions and roundabouts.

- Cars going down the motorway that could easily go in the slow lane as there's zero other cars in front of them, but, just don't.

- Cars going over the speed limit and tailgating in the fast lane of the motorway expecting you to suddenly bow to their superiority and get out the way.

- DVD warning copyright notices that I can't skip. But okay, sure, I understand I *must* read it, but let me skip the 5 other languages!

- Parking meters that tell you how long you can park for as you put in the money, but insist that you must pay a minimum time of 2 hours when you only need 10 minutes.

- Microsoft Windows' inability to know if my network share password needs entering or not, and spends 5 minutes doing something then saying it couldn't connect. Yet, I can map the network drive and explicitly specify the username/password and it works.

- Apple QuickTime Pro. If I buy QuickTime Pro 6, and they release QuickTime 7 with h264. I can't upgrade to the free version while keeping my version 6 pro features without paying again! This means, I cannot enjoy free playback of h264 video files simply because I've been a valuable customer and buying a previous version.

- IE6 still being in support.

- The UK car tax service not allowing me to renew my tax online if my car insurance coincides with the same date. The result of this means I have to buy a tax disc in person at the post office, and they don't accept credit card. The bit that irks me off, is all the renewal documents clearly advertise - "RENEW ONLINE" - but I can't because of their crappy system. I had a long conversation on the phone with them about how I can offset my car tax without having to pay extra for the 6 months tax.

- Having to trust car garages. My car went in recently and when they fixed an issue said they've found a tear in one of the tires. I have to trust they didn't just do it to make more money. I can't exactly say, no give me back my car with 3 wheels either.

- Companies trying to sell you something when you call customer service. Like credit card companies trying to sell fraud protection insurance when I just want to activate my card.

- People who interrupt my private home time by knocking on the door trying to sell something.

- Unlimited mobile broadband that is capped at 3GB. Now, if I'm not mistaken, that's a limit right?

- Having a Sky+ box that when on standby can be heard doing something from across the other side of the house. They replaced my last faulty one with a different make, the last one was silent.

- Companies using the phrase "economic climate" or "financial downturn" to not admit that they are shortchanging customers or employees.

- People being impatient in car parks when you stop to reverse into a space. What, it's a car park, what else do they honestly think I'm there to be doing?

- My old ISP supplying a help card saying, "If you're having trouble configuring your internet, visit this web site for help".

- Companies being paid by direct debit charging an month extra when you cancel an account, then reimburse you a month later.

- Having to buy upgrades to all my Mac software because the new OS doesn't support those any more.

- Price of food a cafes inside large department stores. Would be okay if they had a good selection of food and drink.

- Price of popcorn and a coke at the cinema.

... okay, I feel better now :)

...roundabouts...

Roundabouts are starting be be installed at more intersections here in the USA, unfortunately, no one has told American drivers how to use them. If I use it like one is supposed to and safely slip into traffic without stopping, other drivers freak out and honk because I didn't stop. Most everyone stops when they don't need to!

You can actually feel a lot better about everything if you let go of the past, especially negative thoughts and focus on what is abundant in your life.

Why relive the stuff that wasn't pleasant? Let it go.

The present is now...the past is been and gone and the future hasn't happened yet.

Oh they install the indicator but it only blinks in the cabin. The exterior bulbs are merely to make them US legal. They actually do nothing. Its all a part of the BMW mystique.

I own a few BMWs and I do not care for the ego / fru fru / caviar and crackers identity side of the brand but I do think they are the best cars to drive in the world.

Here's one thing that burned my *** this week. I was talking to my Precal teacher today and she informed us that we were going to have a test on Monday that would be a take-home test. I thought that this was weird in that she never does that. I do have other teachers that do, but not her. She is very strict and I actually appreciate that in her. I have learned more from her class then the previous two math classes that I have taken in that she makes you work for it and you feel a sense of accomplishment when you get a test back and it has a 100 on it. But, anyway. I asked her why she was doing a take-home test and she responded that all of the teachers had a meeting last week and the president of the college is rip**** about so many students having poor grades. She instructed the teachers to do whatever it is that they had to do to get the grades of these kids up. She doesn't like the image that it's giving the college with so many kids failing. Now, many will say what is wrong with that? Don't you want these kids to succeed? Well, yes and no. Most of the kids that are failing, and 98% of the ones failing are between 18 and 20, haven't done ****... They haven't turned in their labs, they haven't bothered to study for tests coming up, they haven't done any of the homework. I ask them what they plan on doing being so far behind and they all simply reply that the college will give them a pity party and someone will help them. ******* ********. I have a 3.8 GPA at this point and I worked my *** off for that grade. So, here comes the college all worried about their image when compared to other colleges and I get to sit in interviews after graduating next to these bums that didn't do a ******* thing to earn their grade. They just got fed through because of politics. The only thing you can rely on is that the student councilor has some say in who was who, but I really don't think in the end he will have the cojones to give anyone a bad rap. So, I'm back to what I was getting at earlier in that we all come out with a associate's degree, whether you earned it or not. ******** in my eyes. One can say, "Well, when you hit the job place, it won't take long for the bosses to see who's who..." That's ******** too. It's always the lazy pieces of **** that are there suckin' off the bosses to get the higher positions. It's days like this that I hate the work field. I can't remember how many times I've seen humanity show it's abysmal core so many times... Anyway. You posted a rant thread, so there is mine. Guess if ever there was a place to piss and moan in this forum, it's here I guess... I do feel a little better though.

Oh no, now you've gone and done it! :D

I'm finding as I get older, I'm turning into Victor Meldrew (US peeps, Google it).

Here are a few that come to mind:

TV adverts
I have to mute them, I can't stand them, they ALL wind me up.

Terrestrial adverts at the cinema
Not only do they wind me up, but now it seems the annoying TV adverts are also at the cinema, I'm not talking about the really poor local adverst for the local curry house, they have a naff charm about them, I mean the same adverts you find on TV, grrrrrrrrrr!

Email spam
An obvious one I know, but I would love to take a wire coat hanger to the japs-eye of these fkers.

Drivers who jump the lights at yellow box junctions
If I'm first in line at my junction to turn right, I _should_ be able to get across while my light is green, but noooooooooooooooo, these wankers squeeze every last second out of the amber light, and even go when it's just turned red for them, leaving me to either wait and have it happen again and never get out, or be forced to be like them and go through when it's dangerously close to red. Pisses me off no end.

Rip-off Britain
Why we have to pay more than everyone else for the same stuff really gets my goat.

Political correctness & Nanny-state Britain
These two issues have become ridiculous in our Country, you feel like you can't say or do anything for fear of 'offending' someone's sensibilities.

I don't mean to suggest we should be rude to one another, but when Councils are entertaining the idea of changing "Merry Christmas" to "Happy Festivities" for fear of offending other Religions, things have gone too far. Or having an "everyone's a winner" mentality at School sports days for fear of upsetting the losing kids, what message are we sending? It's okay to fail?

No, it has to stop now.

Another one for DVDs ...

DVD 'Special' Feature - "Interactive Scene Access"
NO, interactive scene access is not a SPECIAL feature, it's part of DVD technology, a Director commentary is a special feature, otherwise why stop there? Might as well advertise a "slim disc" as a 'special feature'.

When I get there , I have Ford Explorer (new shape) pull down dvd player ,keypad on the door handle "wtf is that all about" anyway its complete beast of car , excellent I have no problems driving it .

IN THE UK : we flash our head lights to give people aknowlegment or right of way [general]

I had guy try to rip me out of the car in downtown Manhatan "ok I did cut him slightly " what a fright he got when I went bersek and my Scottish accent scared this **** out of him ...that was a good day !

Tailgaters, I mean, fer fecks sake, you're travelling at 70mph less than 6 feet from the guy in front. Do you HONESTLY think your slow a$$ed brain is quick enough to even get to the brake pedal if they slam on the anchors, never mind stop?

folks who zoom up to your back seat and sit there when there is plenty of space to pull out and overtake, but nooo, they want YOU to speed up because they don't know how to turn the gorramn steering wheel. If they do, it apparently HAS to be yanked violently from one side to the other.
(It's quite hi-larious letting these guys sit behind you, slowly speed up, then reach a parked car - not that *I* would ever do such a thing :devil: )

People who swerve in and out of lanes when you are in a long, long traffic jam. I mean, fer fecks sake, can you not SEE the 2 miles of solid traffic in every lane ahead of you, just where the feck do you think you're going to go?
A 30 foot gap appears, they floor it and screech to a halt, oh yeah, very feckin clever!

Dozy women / old farts in the middle lane doing 5 mph slower than the inside lane.
Middle lane drivers who, even though there is no traffic for a frickin mile in the inside lane, sit contentedly in the middle.
Same dozy drivers who pull into the outside lane of a dual carriageway and crawl along because they are turning right, at some point, several miles down the road.

Folks who pull out to overtake a lorry, then frickin SLOW DOWN? WTF?
Scared of overtaking, they take forever, when common sense dictates the sooner you are past, the sooner you out out of possible danger. Oh, silly me, common sense, so gorramn rare it's a super power!

The "I'm not trying to sell you something" cold caller who then goes on to try and sell you something, all the time maintaining that they are not.
What? No, I've not took a baseball bat to your head, it only seems like it from your perspective!

Oh for the chance to thin the gene pool sometimes. :2guns:

- Apple QuickTime Pro. If I buy QuickTime Pro 6, and they release QuickTime 7 with h264. I can't upgrade to the free version while keeping my version 6 pro features without paying again! This means, I cannot enjoy free playback of h264 video files simply because I've been a valuable customer and buying a previous version.

- IE6 still being in support.

- The UK car tax service not allowing me to renew my tax online if my car insurance coincides with the same date. The result of this means I have to buy a tax disc in person at the post office, and they don't accept credit card. The bit that irks me off, is all the renewal documents clearly advertise - "RENEW ONLINE" - but I can't because of their crappy system. I had a long conversation on the phone with them about how I can offset my car tax without having to pay extra for the 6 months tax.

- Having to trust car garages. My car went in recently and when they fixed an issue said they've found a tear in one of the tires. I have to trust they didn't just do it to make more money. I can't exactly say, no give me back my car with 3 wheels either.

- Companies trying to sell you something when you call customer service. Like credit card companies trying to sell fraud protection insurance when I just want to activate my card.

- People who interrupt my private home time by knocking on the door trying to sell something.

- Unlimited mobile broadband that is capped at 3GB. Now, if I'm not mistaken, that's a limit right?

- Having a Sky+ box that when on standby can be heard doing something from across the other side of the house. They replaced my last faulty one with a different make, the last one was silent.

- Companies using the phrase "economic climate" or "financial downturn" to not admit that they are shortchanging customers or employees.

- People being impatient in car parks when you stop to reverse into a space. What, it's a car park, what else do they honestly think I'm there to be doing?

- My old ISP supplying a help card saying, "If you're having trouble configuring your internet, visit this web site for help".

- Companies being paid by direct debit charging an month extra when you cancel an account, then reimburse you a month later.

- Having to buy upgrades to all my Mac software because the new OS doesn't support those any more.

- Price of food a cafes inside large department stores. Would be okay if they had a good selection of food and drink.

- Price of popcorn and a coke at the cinema.

... okay, I feel better now :)

People who don't know how to walk on sidewalks...blocking your way. Just pretend to be a car and follow the same road rules...stick to your right or left...which ever the case maybe be.

People who try to save their position in the checkout line by leaving their stuff in front of you, to go and get more stuff. You move, you lose your spot....unless you leave a living human behind.

Perfect strangers who think they know better, giving you bad advice in those public exercise parks.

BBC Prime...running constant repeats. I don't want to watch the second season of Doctor Who for the forth time in a row :devil::devil:

News programs...where it's anything but news.

Wolf Blitzer...asking a guest a question and then retelling the whole event, so people can be up to date before allowing said guest to answer.

3D in movies...it's all about realism...it's boring as hell. Be different, be stylized and unique.

Quentin Tarantino not directing a 3d movie, things need to be shaken up a lot...blood, guts and naughty bits. 3d needs to be targeted to adults for a change.

You can actually feel a lot better about everything if you let go of the past, especially negative thoughts and focus on what is abundant in your life.

Why relive the stuff that wasn't pleasant? Let it go.

The present is now...the past is been and gone and the future hasn't happened yet.

Enjoy.

Virgin Mobile are the only UK cell phone company to allow direct debit charging for pay as you go at the end of the month rather than requiring top-ups before you use it...WHY? I'm searching for a new phone, would like to switch to O2 but I don't require a contract and 'topping up' is a rediculous idea...my landline doesn't require me to guess how much credit I might need in advance, restaurants don't ask me to pay in advance for food that I might eat, shops don't require me to buy credit before I walk through the door...so why do phone companies? I don't know how much I'm likely to spend, some months it's 」30+ others it's under 」5...I'm much more likely to spend more when I'm not concerned about running out of credit...So, well done Mr Branson and for f***'s sake catch up everyone else! I've been paying at the end of the month via direct debit for nearly 5 years on Virgin and it's the only reason I haven't switched.

MS hiding my Administrator Account by default.

Windows Media Center requires a registry hack to look for the library of ripped DVD's. If it's supposed to be user friendly then WTF? The average person doesn't want to do a regedit.

Companies who now assume everyone wants a Flash page. What ever happened to the HTML only option on the home pages?

Companies that write software that assume that everyone has internet access. They don't and even if they did, not everyone has admin rights on an IT controlled computer to run your silly program that could have just been a downloaded portable app where the end user doesn't need to be an Admin. or could run it from a thumbdrive.

People who speed up to overtake and cut back in front of me...to get to the red light ahead.

People who see no liner in the trash can and yet throw things in anyway.

People who take out the trash and don't replace the liner.

The sense of self entitlement that is rampant in society. So many people who think something is owed to them or they deserve to play at their jobs while others have to slave.

Some little gear grinders-

Going to the laundrymat and there's only 2 people in there but ALL the f**king machines are occupied.

Coming back from the laundrymat with one sock less, every frekin time. I swear those machines eat socks.

In porn fliks, when the audio isn't even remotely relavent to the picture.

Spending like $20 on chinese take-out and the clerk asking if "you would like any sauce"?, and replying "Lot's of ducksauce", and she puts 2 little packets in the bag that when you get home turn out to be hotsauce anyway.

Getting the wrong order at the drive-thru.

Drive thru speaker systems - "So you want one ...ounder, with ...se and ... s... er and a large ...thy ... ke, would you like fries with that, sir?" <-What the f**k you say?!

People who go to the bar and order a diet soda.

Dog poop.

The people who don't pick up the dog poop.

People who let their evil little children run around like hopped-up-sugar-junkies in public places. If another little kid runs into my nads with their forehead chasing one of those ridiculously super bouncy rubber ball things I'm going to start carrying mace.

The line at a theme-park water slide, you spend 3 hours waiting for something that'll be over in 5 seconds.

Dog poop.

The people who don't pick up the dog poop.



Being a dog owner myself, i'm going to add to this a couple of things that grind my gears:

-Dog owner who didn't bother to spend less than 2 weeks teaching their dog to poop not on the curb but in the bushes (all it needs is saying 'no' when the dog tries to poop on the curb, then quickly pick up the pup and carry it into the bushes and say 'poop'), it took me less than 2 weeks and my dog has never ever taken a crap on someone else doorstep or curb.

-Dog owners who can't be bothered to carry a couple scented plastic doggy bags in their coat so they can clean up after their dog so i don't have to step into it. Yet they manage to carry their wallets and cell phones at all times, even when walking the dog

-Dog owners who don't do any basic puppy training with their dogs because since they have a small dog they don't think they need it. You know the type of dog this becomes? the stereo type small yapping asocial little bastard that attacks other dogs and people. The times i just wanted to kick such little bastards over the roof and then strange the owner with the dog leash.

-Car owners who don't use blinkers so i can anticipate

-Car owners who don't seem to understand the concept of a roundabout and yield (the times i have stared death in the face as a cyclist ,ans this is Holland, we have more bikes than we have inhabitants and we have special roads for bikes next to the car roads)

biliousfrog

....we have more bikes than we have inhabitants and we have special roads for bikes next to the car roads)

We have loads of dedicated cycle paths round here, a nice seperate strip in red tarmac, with a pic of a cycle at each end to easily identify it, and raised from the road with a decent verge to keep the cyclists safe....yet, every day I have to swerve round bloody idiots that insist on riding along the edge of the road, weaving around drains, bumping over potholes and blowing around in the wind. The council has used tax-payers money to encourage cycling and make cyclists safer yet it seems that some idiots would prefer to dice with death on busy roads...that really bothers me.:bangwall:

Dumpster Trucks.

Dumpster trucks at 4 am.

Dumpster-Truck-Drivers at 4 am in the parking lot in front of my house that lift the dumpster and insist on driving around the block with the dumpster high in the air.

Dumpster-Truck-Drivers at 4 am in the parking lot in front of my house that lift the dumpster and insist on driving around the block with the dumpster high in the air and end up ripping the power line from my house with their "extremely keen sense of judgement of distance" and then decide to frantically drive off as if no one will notice them. Your driving a f**king dumpster truck for f**k's sake, it's 4 am, trust me you're not remotely inconspicuous a**h**e!

Hey, I already did this one, but I called them garbage trucks. ;)
But that's OK, I'm sure nobody likes this one!

What's funny about this though is this almost *exact* thing happened to me a few years ago, only it was my cable line, not the power line. At least the power company will get you fixed right away, but I had to go without TV and internet for almost a week.

I just got back from an AVL conference. Before going to the conference, I had all but decided to get rid of my VT-5 and go with Final Cut pro. It seemed that I couldn't get the support and help from VT that i really needed, and I have had so many problems with VT that I wanted out! AFter being at the conference for 2 days, I started rethinking. Maybe FC isn't better? Maybe Mac isn't the answer? Some of the things that VT will do that FC and others won't, had me rethinking. So, with new energy, I decided to see if I could just find a local VT support person and try to find out WHY my VT won't do the things the manual says it should do. I went on NewTek's web site, looked up resellers and found one provider in Seattle. I clicked on the providers web site and guess what I found? A RESELLER OF FINAL CUT PRO!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?! They didn't even offer VT stuff!!! HOLY @#[email protected]%!! So, I decided to go to Newtek customer service. Before I could get off the first page, I was done! I couldn't believe that NewTek is still advertising their office hours for Christmas and New Years - FROM 2008!!!!! GIVE ME STRENGTH! So, now I'm thinking, "how in the world is this company (NewTek) actually going to HELP ME when they can't even update thier website to current years, OR get resellers to sale their products!!!?!?!?!? I want to believe in NewTek, honestly, but I am looking for the nearest bridge!

You probably don't need to post the same message in this thread and create a brand new one as well.

That said, I can certainly empathize with you when it comes to the management of Newtek's site. It isn't updated with information as rapidly as I'd like, which leaves some areas to be outdated.

I hope you get some assistance with VT soon. Maybe giving NT a call on Monday during business hours could prove useful.

Forums that dont let you post this "TOSHIBA FORUM CUSTOMER RANT "mines


Firstly I'll state I know first hand that sarcasm and being generally rude via a forum will not get issue's resolved any faster , but I feel raped by Toshiba and 3rd parties and obliged to post

Lets start at the beginning , that's usually the best place .

On 2008 I bought a Toshiba , being a 3D artist I thought this would be a great investment .
But sadly I was wrong .

Purchased at PC WORLD GLASGOW - for 450 GBP "just for geographical reference "

Once I had opened the shinny new box and carefully unwrapped the dangerous contents , I switched on my laptop with bated breath........................

Guess what ?

3 dead pixels not at the side nor the top but right in the middle .
Now you can understand my concerns being a graphics artist , but this issue was quickly resolved "After a Huge fight with PC world because there generative manager policy for today was

" You cant return Unless it had 5 or more dead pixels "

" WRONG ANSWER MY FRIEND "

Ok ,so excellent they swapped it ,after I had to fork out another 50 GBP for an upgraded version because they had none in stock ! .
So effectively I got another machine that I didn't want for extra money .....superb

Ok so, I get this machine home , TOSHIBA EQUIUM A210
everythings fine and dandy for about 1 week

A) DVD DRIVE

-At first I notice the DVD drive acting funny , reading discs then not reading them it lost all function except the ability to read ,ok not a problem I have a home PC that can burn discs ,I'll let that one slip .

B) PAINT FLAKING OFF
the paint on front panel "where the lights are " starts to flake and fall off .

-Ok I'll put that down to wear and tear but its still only a month old

C) OVER HEATING (MEGA) Burnt my daughters arm .

- As I mentioned above I do graphics , this machine main purpose was to browse the internet ,maybe a few world docs , not render out 9 million polyz , I fully understand this concept .

but it started to overheat , I'm not talking about a little bit warm , I'm talking full on ,that much you could cook an egg on . not only did the machine but also the power pack . remembering this machine is still less than 2 months old .
The heat was that intense that it burnt a perfect rectangle onto my 3 year old daughters arm .

-arguing with my wife not to sue for faulty/dangerous electrical goods I phoned customer services up , and spoke to a very nice gentlemen that was happy to help .

Excellent Laptop getting picked up and taken away to get fixed ----SEE CUSTOMER SERVICES NOTES .

I was that considerate that I re-formatted the machine ,dragged all the essential tools onto the desktop ,you know control panel , system setting ect . and even made a nice jpeg schematic where the faults are "because I know how much off a pain in the teeth it can be working on the tech side and anything I can do to help "

1 or 2 weeks later I get my newly refurbished laptop back .
Superb , or so I thought ...................

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jump forward 6 months later , just before the manufactures warranty runs out IRONICALLY

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inbetween random faults and the paint starting to fall of AGAIN ,
The machine starts to switch its self randomly off ! without prior warning .


"Ok , maybe it was just a system fault , I'll restore .

Nope still doing it , Maybe its the battery not holding charge and it's struggling to detect it ?????

Nope its still cutting out ................

May I also add after the return off the machine ,which in my professional opp " YOU JUST REPLACED THE SHELL AND BLEW THE DUST OFF " . --------- PLEASE POST CUSTOMER SERVICES NOTES ...."maybe I'm wrong ?"

Now due to the machine randomly switching it's self off it caused massive corrupt sectors and chkdisk errors and loss of data ."some of which was costly , but functionally I'm an intelligent spices I managed to back MOST data up .

Ok so not a problem It's getting old (1year and 3weeks to be exact ) , its generally used for Internet ,theres some work and some personal photos ,nothing thats going to rock your world .
I'll use it for that .

OVERHEATING AGAIN :

Now this can be caused by dust ,also quoted by one of your ignorant members of staff .--

!!!!but this was caused by another mass produced product ,quickly shipped out and grossly missing product user safety testing .....................

HOW DO I KNOW THIS ::::::::::::::::::::::;

Mainly because when you Google Toshiba A210 it hits over 3 million user faults / problems
"Excuse me for sounding like one of your tech guys , but I used google search string to legitimize the search "
and the evidence is there .

Ok so its overheating ,thats maybe why it keeps cutting out ?
not a problem ,not UNTILL TODAY .

"sorry it took so long to get here "

So today My daughter "now 4 " is playing on nickjnr home page "Carefully avoiding the hot lava that pours from the heat vent at the side , and it cuts out again ....

Goto Switch back on

" A method we now call " PULL THE PLUG OUT AND SWITCH ON AND OFF 5 TIMES ,STAND ON 1 LEG & PRAY .............

and up pops this

http://www.johndball.com-a.googlepages.com/images-mlsBIOS.JPG

some here may have seen this before ...................


THIS IS CAUSED by poor programming and bad development

BIOS :

Its called BIOS lock "and yes i did try , TOSHIBA , ADMIN , 12345678 blah blah blah " effectivily the machines decides to encrypt or maybe not encrypt a password , just depends how it feels that day .

Toshiba know about this fault and offer a fix ##maybe at a price ,just depends on what sales rep you get ##

This is the whole point of the conversation so If I lost you with bad grammer / spelling at any point in the post please PAY ATTENTION this is the IMPORTANT PART

================================================== ==========================


I searched ways to brute force , fix , remove battery and so on when I decided enough was enough this machine is faulty -------I'm going to give legal jargon here just so you know where on the same page .

The Sale of Goods Act 1979 as amended

Goods must be:

テδ「テつテつ「fit for the purpose they are made for
テδ「テつテつ「safe
テδ「テつテつ「durable - last for a reasonable time
テδ「テつテつ「have no minor defects
テδ「テつテつ「acceptable in look and finish

There's others if you would like me to continue ,even better ones but I'll just use this one right now , just to be polite .

Your PRODUCT was faulty since it left the covaor belt , your people should have picked up on this when it got returned but I'm sure they may have been busy ! .

Now we can argue these points and justifications but ontop all that .................
this hurts the most .

Today I phoned - TOSHIBA CUSTOMER SERVICES :
"Sorry Mr Scott for the problem you can either wait and we'll send someone out to fix it , OR I QUOTE you can take it to PC WORLD and because there TECHGUYS they will be obliged to fix FOR FREE due to it being purchased there .

I PHONE SEVERAL PCWORLD NUMBERS UP and bounced there calls try to get an answer before someone on the end says # " Maybe you should take into your local store 15 miles away " ----

great thinking sherlock

OK

I GOTO PC WORLD : Yet another human with the capacity of a moth , 300 million sperm and that's the one that got threw .

TELLS ME " We don't do that because we are are not obliged to fix it " ,"But i have a piece of paper with a customer reference that a trusted toshiba services man gave me :(

Ok hold my breath walk out and go and phone TOSHIBA up again not a problem ................
This is where it gets good , I phone you after speaking to another 4 or 5 people on your side .

When I get to speak to someone that's happy to help but at a price ,who decides to become law and Order roled into one, the conversation gets silly and YOU throw potential threats and jargon around #congrates your grease monkey can read off a pdf document ,well so can mine ,but fortunate she has practiced Law for the last 10 years and is pretty accurate ...


but again I said Polite so here it is :

YOUR QUOTE TO FIX YOUR PRODUCT ::: 100 + GBP give or take just depends on how constructive your people decide to be that day ...

So here is my QUOTE

PHONE CALLS
TOSHIBA 8 : average length 20 minutes 8 GBP
PC WORLD 4 @ 1.50 min 15 GBP
GAS / FUEL : 15 GBP
Loss of Earnings : 90 GBP @ 5 DAYS 410 GBP

Damages " DO YOU GET MY POINT YET ? "

As I mentioned I'm a reserved man ,but getting shafted by TOSHIBA from all angles does has Limits


Now what I would like to see arriving on my front door is a new brand spanking Laptop with " WE ARE SORRY " note attached .
but for some reason I don't get that impression ?????

I'm hoping we can remedy this issue in a sensible fashion ,
If we can't , I do have a great idea of posting a YOUTUBE video of me destroying your product with several sharp objects , counter productive maybe ,but when it hits a million hits I'm sure I will get another company to give me a laptop out the kindness of there heart ................

Now for forum posters I apologize for raining on your day , to TOSHIBA please try to understand why I'm a little bit upset .

Have a nice day

PEACE .

Wedding in West Virginia this weekend (not mine, god forbid). Came out with a couple more mild "gear-grinders":

1) Granny cleavage. At my table there was cleavage...old and deep as the grand canyon.

2) Groom used the word "utilized" in his speech...twice. The word "utilized" is a worthless word. Unlike, say, "leverage" or "employed," which might clarify meaning in some cases, "utilized" adds nothing but pretension to a sentence IMO.

If you mean "used" say "used."

* Spending 20 minutes signing and/or initialing 30 separate sheets of paper just to renew my auto insurance - after waiting at the office for half an hour to talk to the rep.
I mean it's the same policy I had last year, and the the year before... why can't they just slap one bundle of papers in front of me and get just one signature for the whole mess? Total waste of time as well as paper.

* Realizing once again that after 27 years of driving I've never once made an insurance claim, have had no accidents and only one ticket, and have never gotten a dime back from any insurance company. I don't even want to know how many thousands of dollars I've spent through all these years to have auto insurance for "just in case". Might as well just take all that money and toss it into the street.

* Not being able to claim "self-insured" status and just deal with any problems on my own.


Yeah, I just got back from my insurance agent's office...

*Oh yeah, having to go into the damn office to renew my policy and not just being able to renew it online like I pay my monthly bills.

Grrrrrrr.... :cursin:

IMI
11-09-2009, 01:49 PM
Well this one would not be wise AT ALL - unless of course you are independently wealthy. :)

Not independently wealthy, but I'd just as soon play the odds against my impeccable driving record and take my chances. Having a law that *forces* me to give money to people for no good reason burns me up.
Just be glad I don't rant about it online every month after I pay my bill. I do rant about it every month though, just not online. ;)


Edit-
But yeah, I know, I know. And I would probably still have insurance even if I had the option to be self-insured. You never know, and all that.
But if there's a law saying I have to give money to these f'ers there should be a law saying they have to return some of it each year if there were no claims. Why should the cards be stacked totally in their favor? why should WE be the ones to get nothing while they make billions of dollars doing their best to *deny* legitimate claims?

Just a rant though...

IMI
11-09-2009, 02:28 PM
Well maybe not so much outright denying claims, although I have heard cases of that happening, but also, other people's lawyers suing for far more than the insurance company was willing to pay, and winning. And of course, the insurance company's lawyers are going to look for every possible loophole. All that smiling and assurance you get when buying a policy is really rather fragile if some corporate attorney ever has to get involved.

But even worse than that is they don't have to deny claims. I know a whole lot of people who have had fender benders and simply paid it out-of-pocket to avoid the insurance company's involvement altogether. Because you know, all they're going to do is raise your rates and in the long run it's cheaper to pay a few hundred for some minor repair work, as opposed to several hundred more in increased rates.
So just the threat of knowing that is enough to discourage people from actually using what they're paying for.
I just don't think it's right, is all. :)

IMI
11-09-2009, 04:00 PM
Well I can't help but feel that if auto insurance policies offered real incentives, like a sizable portion of your money back for filing no claims, that people might just be a little more careful, that the roads might be a little bit safer.
Aetna (I think) does that, but it's something minuscule like only 5% back or something like that, but it only applies if you buy the better policies with all the bells and whistles. And if you pay a thousand a year for a policy, that's a measly fifty bucks, while the other $950.00 went to their profits and paying for other people's claims.

If it were up to me I'd raise the driving age to 21, but allow for exceptions for 18+ year old's who really need to drive for work or school or hardship situations. But I don't know of too many 16 year old's who are really ready to be out there regularly. And alot of what we pay is to cover the costs of the careless and inexperienced. Thinking back, neither I nor any of my friends should have been driving when we were 16. I can't believe I survived that age. ;)


***********************


But anyway, back on topic:

*Junk mail. One of these years I'm gonna save it all and weigh it at the end of the year, then multiply that by about a hundred million to get an average for the whole country. I wonder how much money is wasted on creating and sending junk mail. Even my Post Office regularly spams me with junk mail, reminding me I can buy stamps through the mail or online. I mean, do I really need to be reminded of that every month?
And I get 3 or 4 huge mailers every week from the grocery stores and Wal Mart. Practically catalogs, they are. ;)

And the auto dealers with those "coupons" that look like checks or come wrapped like a W-2. Do they all think we're idiots or something?

I saw an interesting light in the sky tonight. At first, I thought is was a large bright star. Then I noticed it moving and I checked to see if it had red blinking lights..to see if it was a plane etc. Now the thing is wobbling as it flew....which lasted about four seconds. Then the light dims to the level of a distant star and maybe shrinks as well(not sure), three seconds after that the light goes out....nothing left.

They can do, depends how much we're talking. What happens is that sometime you get the rare combination of a fat skydiver and a pilot that goes too high. Their wobbly re-entry looks exactly as you've described.

Rumour has it that in the future this will happen again with an incredibly fat person who will accelerate so fast they will transcend the speed of light, traversing time and space eventually emerging to hit Earth in the distant past, wiping out the dinosaurs.

Yeah, reminds me of a couple more that regularly irritate the hell outta me:

*People who have 50 coupons at the supermarket checkout and want to haggle over every last penny, as my ice cream melts and my beer gets warm while waiting in line. I once actually gave a woman 5 bucks just to quit arguing with the cashier and get the hell out of the store.

*People at the supermarket checkout who realize they needed another loaf of bread or something so they send their kid to go find one while holding up the entire line.

*People with 25 items in the "15 items or less" express lane at the supermarket.

*Trying to defeat Wal Mart's desire for me to be in there for a long time waiting in long lines by going really early in the morning. Only to be defeated by whole sections closed because they're waxing them, and finding out they only have one checkout lane opened and still I end up waiting a long time.

"he was totaly in the wrong " and when I told him nicely to shut the F(^& up he decided to pick a fight with me .

"wrong move my friend "

But if there's a law saying I have to give money to these f'ers there should be a law saying they have to return some of it each year if there were no claims.The only place I've ever lived where this happened was Saskatchewan (birthplace of many of Canada's socialized policies). My annual fees were pretty reasonable as I recall, and at the end of the every year, I used to get a check back from SGI (Saskatchewan Government Insurance). I don't know if that is stil true or not, it's >20 years since I lived there.

People complaining that someone else always thinks he or she is right whenever he or she argues. I call that respect: if I'm arguing I think I am right and the other point of view is wrong. Why would I argue if I don't think something is wrong?

The clerk getting offended when I check if the 20 bill he just gave me after buying something is legit or fake after he carefully checked my right-off-the-cash-machine 50 bill without me complaining.

People talking to me without any consideration and about anything important at all when I'm reading, as if I was just bored ("hence the book" they might think.)

They can drift around a tiny bit as they slow, was it more varying degrees of brightness?

The brightness only dimmed at the last few seconds before it totally went out. As it was wobbling side to side, it stayed bright (same brightness) for about 5 seconds, once the wobble seem to stop....it dimmed as well.

There was no light streak like you normally get (see photo), it just looked like a solid ball at all times. There was no smoke or anything I can see.

Not independently wealthy, but I'd just as soon play the odds against my impeccable driving record and take my chances.
The problem is that it basically insures others, not you.
I.e. if you get run over by some poor driver, you'd rather be able to make a claim then get zilch because the driver is broke.

That also means that others are paying for your insurance though ;)

uh, life's a journey, y'know?

My biggest client had his sales nearly cut to half, which in turn made my purse sad. Searched for an employment, found something that really sounded nice, got screwed (that prick still owes me money), landed a nice freelance project, done a self-promo dvd (3 reels), some job applications, and waiting for the fruits to harvest. Two companies invited me to an interview. And worked for Toshiba for two posts.

*The fact that I can't get a good enchilada anywhere and haven't had one in so long I can't remember. Years. And authentic Mexican food in general.
Everything around here is either Taco Bell or some variety of Tex Mex, and watered down to make it more palatable to sissfied Americans who can't handle spicy food.

*Something went bad wrong for pizza several years ago and it never recovered. Pizza Hut is bland, Papa John's is crap, and Domino's is the excrement of a feces eater. About the only "big name" pizza I like anymore is Sbarro's, but I can only get that at the mall 20 miles away.
Of course, the small time, no-name Italian pizzerias still do it right at least
(unlike their Mexican counterparts around here).

* "Pasteurized Processed Cheese Food", "Pasteurized Processed Cheese Food Substitute". WTF? I spend way too much time trying to find the "real" cheese, and it's just kind of hidden behind 500 pounds of fake cheese varieties made with vegetable oil.

*Reduced fat this, low sodium that, heart healthy this-n-that...

People whose car stereo causes my vehicle to shake as though a herd of T-Rexxes is thundering down on it when they are parked 6 cars behind me at a red light.

Surely it cannot be even vaguely safe to drive a car in city traffic with that much interior noise. And even if it is, why must I listen to their choice of music (which I pretty much always find offensive and juvenile, btw)? I would pay serious money for an untraceable electronic device that would blow up their speakers from a distance of 100 feet - and even more if it could produce a satisfying mushroom cloud from the (former) speaker at the same time.

So many people today have major hearing loss because of loud music. I have noticed they speak much louder, and don't hear allot of sounds that I can easily hear. They probably couldn't hear a siren anyway...

When I see a child or even a pet like a dog in a booming car like that, I feel rather angry at their ignorance regarding the child's or dog's hearing damage. For a dog it could be really painful, and the child's hearing is being permanently damaged.

Health care these days in the Netherlands and the power insurance and pharma companies wield in politics, that grinds my gears to no small amount.

We have to pay more and more each year after the government stopped government controlled health care and opened up the market so 'companies can compete' (read, create cartels and control which cheap-*** medication you are only allowed to use so they can boost profits).
So far all it has done is it has tripled the prices (i pay around 1400 euros a year now just for the insurance (8 years ago i paid 456 a year) and they introduced a policy excess of a 165 euros.

Then i go cut my thumb to the f-ing bone and stuff that was supposed to be under my skin was now poking it's head out of the wound, me going to the emergency room, they made me wait half an hour in the normal waiting room (all the while dripping all over the place), then finally a doctor comes, oh no wait, she makes me sit on a hospital bed and buggers off again, for 45 minutes (this way they can charge you for using a hospital bed), when she comes back she takes a 10 second peek at it and puts a band-aid on it...a BAND-AID?...a year later the spot on my f-ing thumb has a small crater and it still hurts when i rub it...oh...and they charged me 150 euros, guess how much my insurance company paid for that stellar piece of medical work.

We separated mutually and amicably. Having said that, I am not numb to the sting of seeing a former lover with another person for the first time.

It is probably exactly what what you are expecting: disaster porn. The characters, script and story seem contrived only to connect various scenes of gratuitous destruction.

If you lower expectations and consider it a glorified FX reel then it is entertaining IMO. But it is a groaner to be sure (perhaps fitting for a "disaster porn" flick...)

I went with a client and a couple of her friends. One of them was actually weeping in a some scenes. For obvious reasons I kept my cynicism to myself but I was imagining that classic Tom Hanks "There's no crying in baseball!" scene and swapping in "There's no crying in...crappy disaster flicks!"

The Vatican is taken out in especially spectacular fashion along with other long-standing Christian symbols.

Why should the filmakers fear offended christians? Larry David relieved himself on Jesus last week. Family Guy and South Park make an *** out of anyone who practices Christianity practically every episode.

Do Mormons and scientologists routinely react violently when offended?
Both religions were brutally skewered by South Park without incident.

Makes me wonder why Comedy Central is not an equal opportunity offender. Are some ideologies so sacred that they are simply above satire and secular criticism?

Speaking of 2012, here is one to add to the gear-grinding list. In the movie monuments from all major ideologies are destroyed with one glaring exception... care to take a wild guess which one was spared and why?

That is a rhetorical question. The filmakers themselves acknowledged the unfairness of the omission.

Haven't seen 2012 or heard what was spared, but my initial guess would be they spared Al-Masjid al-Ḥarām and the Kaaba.

I don't think you can dispute that I ALWAYS back up my views with cited sources and express them with all due courtesy (unlike members like MeshPig who must rely on petty personal smears or bogus accusations of bigotry). Accordingly, here are links to Roland Emmerich interviews in which he discusses why monuments of one particular ideology were spared destruction: http://www.hollywood.com/news/2012_Director_I_Dont_Want_to_Become_Salman_Rushdie/5722181

http://scifiwire.com/2009/11/5-best-things-2012s-direc.php

I propose the following. I'll do my best to restrain my "rampages" in all forms on this forum.

I'll happily stop my "rampages" altogether as soon as:

1) militants stop decisively justifying their real "rampages" with scholarly sources: http://rubinreports.blogspot.com/2009/11/why-i-murdered-13-american-soldiers-at.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Rubinreports+%28RubinReports% 29
2) moderates like yourself start honestly acknowledging and addressing those ideological elements that are indisputably sexist, supremist and anti-democratic (as opposed to villifying/smearing people like me who merely report on how militants universally leverage those elements).

Deal?

Chris, is this some kind disease/sickness with you??. I thought we got over this with the ex Nun that Jin linked to. If she can't make you see your wrong then no one can.

This is a symptom of what happened to you that you won't reveal. You are fighting something that can't defend it's self because it's a ideology, not a real person...so it's safe for you to attack. It makes feel good for awhile but it still doesn't right the wrongs that happened to you and you might feel like a hero doing so....but Chris your just deluding yourself.

Chris, be really brave and tackle those events head on, don't lash on to something that's safe to do and you have no fear of reprisal. If you do really care about this, then take your local Islamic organization to court. Win that court case and then I'll say your right but until then you aren't looking like a healthy, intelligent, sound minded person...I must say.

Of course, you'll say things like the courts and government are scared of reprisals too and such a court case will be useless to undertake. But you and I know the real reason is that you are wrong and will be laughed out of the courts, otherwise you would have done so by now.

Here you go...are you happy now??

As for the director, he sounds like an idiot. Buildings do fall down all the time and taking the self censorship route and blaming supposed/feared outcome is just ridiculous. For some reason, western people think if they show the destruction of an Islamic building..it means the destruction of the religion itself or is some how an attack on the religion. We have all seen news footage of bombed Mosques in Iraq and Pakistan, why wasn't there an uproar directed at news stations for showing such images?? Buildings can be rebuilt..I hope you knew that??

I haven't seen the movie but that interview you linked to, the interviewer only mentioned Islam and Christianity...why did the director omit destruction of other religious symbols. What's his excuse there???

Come on Chris...be brave and tackle the root issues affecting your view on life.

Emmerich's decision was not political or religious, he and the other guy helping him just didn't want to get stabbed.
Why this heated discussion? It's a hollywood movie, doesn't worth dying for. It's not Cannes or some human rioghts film.

11-16-2009, 09:21 AM
And here we go again....

Chris, is this some kind disease/sickness with you??.

Thank you for proving my point. This is my last public post on the matter. Feel free to PM me but be warned I won't hold back like I do in public forums.

Personal attacks and smears instead of addressing the issue. A tired tactic. If I am wrong, why are you incapable of directly addressing how and why I am wrong?

I believe in freedom of expression, equality of sexes in legal testimony and equality of muslims and non-muslims in Muslim nations. Do you? Why am I a villain for believing so?

You CANNOT REFUTE that some mainstream scholarly Islamic literature preaches that Islam is incompatible with democracy and freedom of conscious. I can post endless links supporting this position (AGAIN, this is not MY postion, this is the position of some mainstream Muslims): http://www.islamonline.com/news/articles/3/Ruling_on_democracy_and_elections_and_participatin .html

"Democracy is a man-made system, meaning rule by the people for the people. Thus it is contrary to Islam, because rule is for Allaah, the Most High, the Almighty, and it is not permissible to give legislative rights to any human being, no matter who he is."

It says in Mawsoo€™at al-Adyaan wa€™l-Madhaahib al-Mu€™aasirah (2/1066, 1067):

"It is not permissible for a Muslim to vote for him or for anyone else who will work in that government, unless the one who nominates himself or those who vote for him hope that by getting involved in that they will be able to change the system to one that operates according to the sharee€™ah of Islam, and they are using this as a means to overcome the system of government"

The above link is a popular source for many moderate, mainstream Muslims.

Am I a villain for alerting others to this view and for assuring them it is anything but bigoted to defend democracy and personal freedom?


If fighting for such freedoms is "disease," then I am proud to be "sick"



I thought we got over this with the ex Nun that Jin linked to. If she can't make you see your wrong then no one can.

I seem to remember thanking Jin for the link and acknowledging the nun's views were worth researching. I did my research. Her name is Karen Armstrong and it turns out her scholarship is consistently and verifiably dishonest and/or sloppy. Here is one infamous example where her attempt to sell politically correct delusions exposed her ignorance (just ask if you want others):

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2007/04/karen-armstrong-reviews-spencers-the-truth-about-muhammad.html




This is a symptom of what happened to you that you won't reveal. You are fighting something that can't defend it's self because it's a ideology, not a real person... so it's safe for you to attack.

When ideology is defended by its adherents with fear and pathetic attempts at intimidation (ie. your behavior in this thread) then I personally think some reform is in order. Was it safe for the Dutch cartoonists to satire Islam? Why did Yale, in a text analyzing the outrageous reaction to the cartoons, refuse to reprint the very subject of discussion?: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32732243/ns/world_news-world_faith/

Similarly, Emmerich admits in no uncertain terms that he edited his vision of 2012 specifically to avoid offending Muslims. You see a pattern here?



It makes feel good for awhile but it still doesn't right the wrongs that happened to you and you might feel like a hero doing so....but Chris your just deluding yourself.

Another useful example. Thanks! You CAN'T refute anything I say say so you try to discredit me instead. It won't work. As usual your statements are complete presumption. You don't know me. You KNOW you don't know me. So let's drop the idiotic pretence shall we?

13 people were just murdered in an attack justified by legitimate Islamic literature. Countless opportunities to intervene and possibly prevent the attack were undermined because moderates and/or politically-correct stooges accuse people who point out the ideological ills of Islam of being "sick" or bigoted. Let me make that clear: People were afraid to speak up because they were afraid of being labeled a "racist" or a "bigot" or of demonizing a supposed "Religion of Peace." Why were they afraid? Because of people like you.

The West is waking up.



Chris, be really brave and tackle those events head on, don't lash on to something that's safe to do and you have no fear of reprisal. If you do really care about this, then take your local Islamic organization to court. Win that court case and then I'll say your right but until then you aren't looking like a healthy, intelligent, sound minded person...I must say.

Haha...your idea of a "civil and honest discourse" is people agreeing with you....anything else is just wrong in your view. Take your research on the Nun, it didn't fit your view and now she is " verifiably dishonest and/or sloppy". Nice one...again you are right and everyone else is wrong!!

You have this fundamental need to be right on this issue even if you can't win, just to be validated as a good person or whatever the personal need is. You scan the internet (goodness knows for how many hours) for obscure stories from obscure sources and claim you have proof.

That to me, is a symptom of someone that needs help. You'll either end up harming yourself, or some innocent Muslim woman like what happened in Germany recently. Sorry for the bluntness but sometimes you need to be blunt. So once again...get help, talk to someone outside your little anti Islamic group and try to overcome your past.
