    Running a project and then instantly spotting some minor syntax error. Then, while cursing the world, waiting and watching the progress bar lurch towards the eventual failure.

    'Cancel' buttons that don't do anything... :(

    Robocalls! Some days I get so many I want to hurt somebody. And yes, my number is on the do not call list. And it's useless to threaten decapitation to a recorded message.

    That ICANN forces you to provide an accurate address, email and phone number when you register a domain, leading to Robocalls, junk mail and junk email.

    You can use a forwarding service to reduce the amount of nuisances. Dynadot even offers it free.

    I'm more upset that there's a system in place that allows scumbags to just suck up the details from all new registrations. I believe that ICANN should have accurate details on file, but it also shouldn't be accessible by the general public.

    Remember, the telephone does not have a Constitutional right to be answered. Caller ID and answering machines are your friends.

    Set up a Google Voice Phone number so it acts like an answering machine. Best thing I've ever done! Now I don't even hear it ring. :)

    Just a small issue with the OP of this thread and his updater module:
    Initiater is not a word.
    (Initiator is, however!)

    @BillPlunkett Telemarketers.

    I love using Asterisk PBX and the blacklist module to put them in a conference room jail with each other. You guys talk amongst yourself and stop bothering me. :)

    When you try to make a teaching point and someone goes and provides code answers.

    It’s legitimately impressive that this thread still hasn’t been locked.

    ooo... I am bad for this one... My apologies to those whom I did this to, and to whom I will do this to in the future :)

    The fact that the 'Latest' link on the right doesn't take me to the latest post in this (any) thread.

    Well, yeah. I think I once mentioned that I had a pet peeve until my cat ate it.

    Always puts me in a bad mood.
