    That stupid little "press here to open box" on the side of a box of KD that is not perforated very well
    So when you DO press here to actually try & open the box you just crush the box

    Any kind of system that takes way too long to handle a simple request.
    (ATMs, government, and payment transactions :P)

  10. The somewhat variable interpretation of the word "urgent" in public sevices (ie people who tell you to make an urgent appointment to see a dermatologist and then say we can fit you in 3 weeks on Friday).

    Write an accounting app in C and then you'll understand where Cobol works very well :P
    For some things it is THE perfect language

    Everyone knows that a COBOL is a fantasy creature, similar to a goblin, who will jump you in a dark alley, beat you !@#$%, and steal your stuff. (Ok, that might be a Kobold, but I think it accurately describes COBOL as well.) ;)

    Sounds more like the CFO who beats you silly screaming "What do you mean it isn't 2.6???????"
    when you have code like

       i, j, k float ;
    
       i = 1.3 ;
       j = 1.3 ;
       k = i + j ;


    a few billion $ and that rounding error and you get a pretty big problem
    COBOL does it exactly and you get 2.6 ... exactly without thinking about it

    Oh yeah - pet peeve - THAT CFO

    SPOIP (spinning pizza of infinite patience)
    every time I touch iTunes

    And Apple for having turned iTunes into such an increasing huge pile of dreck over the last bunch of year

  17. The rapidly advancing realisation that I am, in fact, a moron.

    Just when you think you're done working in Windows, shut down the VM, and find something you need to test in Windows.

    @David W The rapidly advancing realisation that I am, in fact, a moron.

    A self-defeating proposition. Only the wise realise they are morons.
