23313 Breaking News - AIBU
I think there should be strict time limits on how often news channels are allowed to display the claim 'breaking news'.

Breaking news should be the start of a new likely-to-be headline story, not a recent update on a pre-existing story, unless it is such a significant development that it is a new likely-to-be a headline in and of itself. Obviously there's a philosophical problem as to what would count as a 'significant development', but with a daily time limit, the news channels would soon figure it out.

I don't even want to be that strict on it, but just to throw a suggestion on the table, a maximum of 4 hours of displaying the words between 8am and 8pm, and a 4 hours overnight would be satisfying for me. Planned national events, like Remembrance Day should be forbidden from claiming 'breaking news' as the Queen lays down her wreath. However, planned national events like a general election could use the 'breaking news' display when announcing the overall winning result, but this would have to come out of the 4 hour allowance and should be planned for in advance.

Those dogs sound like they are badly socialised and trained; they shouldn't be picking on other dogs or jumping up once told firmly to stop it. Medium to large dogs, or even small yappy ones, should not be allowed to go mad with jumping on people as dogs are stupid and don't always tell the difference between jumping on a grown adult and a 4 foot child. The fact that they didn't respond to being called back also indicates they're poorly trained. Also, when you have that many dogs being walked how do you even cope without at least a few of them on leads? The fact that you remained fairly polite and calm in the face of being threatened indicates that they were being more cunty than you were.

22678 Estate/ Letting Agents
How is there not a thousand post long /101/ thread on these fuckers yet.

I'm currently having the privileged of negotiating a letting contract with them. Which they are insistent they cannot change. But it doesn't matter that my wishes for use of the property and that I informed them of originally are contradictory with because 'they just won't enforce that bit it's just legally required we put that in there' (it isn't).

This is a deal on a property where we should be moving in in 4 days they gave us the 40 page contract last night and insisted we should be signing by the end of the night that makes reference to agreeing we have seen documents they are yet to provided us with.

Oh yes and they want £150 of fees for providing this standardized contract that they seem incapable of understanding amending, or are being deliberately obtuse as to the implications of 12 months down the line and about £500 more just because.

So I gave the fingers of thanks to this young woman waiting on the other side of a single lane arch as I drove past.

She looked at me with either total confusion or antipathy, I'm not good at judging women's emotions as they're not my thing. It's left me questioning, did the young today never learn proper driving etiquette or am I a proper ugly cunt.

When I have to cross the road, I stare at the cars headlights (because in my head, that's the cars eyes) and wait for it to alert me to cross. It takes a long time to realise that I should be looking at the driver, and not the car, but by then the driver flashes the lights (the cars eyes tells me to cross), and I cross.

22550 Cunt enablers
Some years ago I was on a plane coming back from visting a relative who lived abroad. At the time I was a very heavy smoker and was dying for a cigarette after a 5 hour flight but knew there was no chance of having one for at least another hour while I went through customs and waited for my luggage.

Cue some bloke who just lights up a cigarette whilst walking through the terminal as we come off the plane. He was a big bald bastard with a mean face and wearing a football shirt or something similar and he simply didn't give a shit that he was breaking the law.

Of course I flirted with the idea of following suit, but I didn't dare. I knew the moment I took my first puff some sort of official/staff member would come out of the toilets and issue me with an on-the-spot fine. Or my fellow passengers would suddenly decide to complain instead of just ignoring the smoke.

I didn't even know his name but I hated that man. I have lain awake every night for the past six years thinking about how much I still hate him. He was breaking the rules and getting away with it. He was doing what I wanted to do but could not because of the fact that I care what other people think and he doesn't. And that made me hate the silent majority of people who did and said nothing, including and primarily myself. Because I was jealous.

We all know the sort of person. The kid who experimented more heavily with drugs as a teenager than the rest of your friends but still went on to be healthy and successful in adulthood. People who shaft business partners and yet are still always somehow able to find someone new to invest in their latest scheme. People who cheat on loving and loyal partners and then get another chance when caught out. Etc etc etc.

Fuck those people but a thousand times more fuck the people who allow those people to continue by allowing themselves to be charmed or won round or even intimidated. Letting someone get away with being a cunt is a negative act, it harms society.

If we live according to our true cuntish nature we end up with third world shitholes, which are unsafe and uncivilized.

>It's worth remembering that mobile is the only place where we're really genuinely getting more power.

This. The iPhone 6s is 20 times faster than the iPhone 4. Apple have made vast performance gains by designing their own silicon from scratch, throwing billions of dollars at the problem. The 6s is faster than most laptops.


Apple aren't actively conspiring to gimp the performance of old devices, but keeping the OS lean isn't a high priority either. Adding features to software invariably degrades performance. It's inescapable - bigger binaries take longer to load from memory, bigger config files take longer to parse. With that said, Apple are clearly working on performance, if only because saving CPU cycles improves battery life. iOS 9.2 has significant performance improvements in many areas.

Devices also unavoidably get slower with age. This is partly because users tend to install more software (meaning more background tasks) but also because of flash ageing. Flash memory performance plays a large role in responsiveness, but flash does wear out with repeated writes. As flash cells start to fail, the memory controller has to work harder to correct errors and reallocate data, reducing performance. It's roughly analogous to a magnetic hard drive becoming fragmented, only permanent.

There's also the dreaded nostalgia filter. People complain about how long their Windows machines take to boot, forgetting that they've always taken that long. It was only when talking to my dad about our old computer that I realised that it wasn't just me being a young child that distorted it - our old 486 on Windows 95 really did take long enough to start that he could boil the kettle for his coffee. (If he wanted tea, he could always use the dial-up.) Last year I moved my desktop from a spinner to solid state, and the increase in speed was very noticeable. We have become so accustomed to things happening near-instantly that waiting even a few seconds for a device to start seems like too long.

Well, in the server market the focus now is less on hardware and more on virtualisation/cloud computing. Rather than running a traditional HA pair to get your 5 9s reliability you can spawn as many virtual machines as you like in the cloud - this is something Amazon have been doing for a while now, and more companies are looking to copy them.

Server hardware is still hugely important, it's just now the main goal is performance-per-watt rather than raw performance. DCs are using all sorts of clever tricks to deal with their gargantuan power and cooling requirements. Google have been working on high-temperature DCs that run at >40°C ambient. Intel are developing distributed UPS systems with a small battery in each server to reduce distribution losses. Several companies are working on ARM server chips with massive core counts.

22096 CV whinge
I was going to tag this onto an existing thread about asking for advice on writing CVs in /job/, but it just spiraled into a rant, so I thought I'd post it here.

I've always hated jobhunting. But, this is the first time in five years that I've been unemployed. I would have probably tried to find another job during the time I had the one I had last, but I hate jobhunting so much that I couldn't bring myself to do it. Now, I'm forced to. I'm hating it even more than I did in the past, probably because I've grown up and gained a more mature perspective on the world of work.

I don't lack confidence in looking for a job or in my expectations of finding one before too long (I took out unemployment insurance years ago, so that I'd be able to keep paying my mortgage, plus I've some money put away, so I don't have the fires of hell under my arse yet) but as regards writing and/or amending my CV, I feel like I've stumbled into a carnival fun house designed by a madman for the explicit purpose of luring others into the depths of insanity.

Firstly, the infrastructure of job acquisition is ludicrous. I've been told that during the sixties and at least early seventies, you could walk out of a job in the morning and be working on the floor of your next job that afternoon. Obviously the low unemployment rate in that period was one factor, but it also meant something else; one person applying for one job, meaning that 0% of applications were rejected for certain job postings. We are told that these days, there are thousands of people applying for single positions. We are forced to accept this, but it's madness.

We now have a situation in which the process of selecting appropriate candidates has been rendered so difficult that automated computer searches through the piles of CVs are used to gut them for snippets of metadata, despite the fact that the results are often completely erroneous, just to select an elite few actually considered worthwhile reading. We are told, however, that our CVs ought to stand out from a crowd. This means that your CV needs first to conform to a general standard of content, formatting and with the correct set of whatever buzzwords happen to be in vogue at the moment, but thereafter somehow stand out. What?! At the very least, it should be apparent that since everyone is expected to make sure their CVs conform to certain standards, that those standards are, in fact, wholly irrelevant and simply exclude those whose skills do not necessarily include the ability to dick around in Word for hours on end. For the vast majority of jobs, this is not an essential skill.

The advice on writing CVs (not from you guys, but “official” sources) seems to completely ignore the realities of what workplaces are actually like. We are told to use 'active' words- achieved this and slashed that, as if we're all captains of industry or something and actually are given the opportunity make any sort of difference or contribute to society at all. The vast majority of us begrudgingly turn up for work every day doing the exact same shit for no other reason than because someone is forced to pay us to do it. What the fuck does a gas metre reader achieve beyond reading the requisite number of gas metres? How does a checkout assistant meaningfully contribute to anything? What does anyone actually get out of doing customer assistance in a bank?

It's pretty disheartening if you've never had a job before, but for those of us who've been in the world of work before- I mean, come on. We've all worked under bosses that had no idea what they were doing and qualified people who are completely incompetent. We've known environments where the one person who's good at their job gets passed up for promotion year after year in favour of a usless kiss-arse. We know privately that anyone could pick up our job after two weeks of faking it, because that's exactly what we did. We know that people keep turning up for a job that they detest because they're afraid of the vague and confusing world of jobhunting, where nothing makes sense and there's no guarantee they're going to match whatever paltry income they're on now.
We're always expected to pretend like we give a shit, like we've achieved anything, like we stand out from the crowd, that we actually want whatever job we're applying for and would be a valuable addition to the team, despite the fact that everybody knows that we're all just going through the motions. No doubt many of us lie to ourselves and tell ourselves otherwise, and many of us perhaps perceive the insanity of it all and, seeing so few others speak up against it, assume that, in fact, there's somehow something wrong with our selves. But, beneath that, we all know

It's blatantly unfair on people who don't know how to play the game. Before I went self-employed, I was working in the IT sector. My CV was gratuitously stuffed with every keyword imaginable to get through first-line filtering. I wasn't writing my CV to usefully communicate my suitability for the job, but simply to trick a bad filtering algorithm. It was like the worst kind of pre-Google SEO. I'm certain that much better candidates than me missed out on good opportunities because they weren't as cynical about the recruitment process.

HR departments frequently insist on all sorts of absurd "requirements", because they're so far removed from the actual work. Particularly for highly technical roles, they have no idea of what the job demands and what makes a good candidate. I can't count the number of times I've seen job ads requiring five years of experience in a technology that has only existed for three years.

Not OP but this has been very true to me. I'd rather play than watch.

One: I'I don't know.
Two: I somehow ended up watching hours of supreme commander 2 videos the other day.

Alright, I've had breakfast and I'm ready to post.

So usually the gameplay videos I'm watching are games that don't have very big audiences, or for videos of games I don't play it's usually because the people playing them are interesting. Those second lot are probably more akin to radio shows I guess. Also have you seen most TV? It's usually boring and being repeated for the 4th time that week, and/or full of ads.


Because Amnesia was scary and isn't narrated by a man with a nice accent, I watched this instead. Thinking about it, it is narrated by a man with a nice accent, just not a nice Shefield accent.


This is clearly bibble to anyone not familiar with this game/the inner workings of late 20th century combined arms warfare. But because not many people play this game, this is one of the few places to pick up strategies and discuss things.

What sort of UTTER FUCKING CUNT thinks that word-diarrhoea is acceptable? All I hear in my head when I read this sort of shite is "I enjoy the smell of my own farts and I think I'm better than you".

Depending on my mood I could find myself on either side of the Cereal Killer Cafe window.

Not only that, but he's too much of a special snowflake to use Spotify like the rest of us.

I switched from Spotify to Google, but can't remember why. Maybe I preferred their Android app.

I like Spotify, but I realised I've had premium for about three years, that's almost four hundred quid down the pan.

I am concerned that the world is becoming more and more exhibitionistic in the worst possible way. Any idiot with a popular enough blog/twitter/YouTube can suddenly become an over night expert in the eyes of increasingly lazy and stupid journalists who in turn feed thesencretins to the masses.

Then there is the over sharing people do on social media. Posting about your wedding is fine to a point, but a week of new fucking updates AND new albums from the same event ever day!

My neighbours also had loud sex which irked me more than it should have.

Excellent and true description. I used it for about a year before, hopefully, quitting forever. The word 'used' does imply the subtly addictive qualities.

My friends list featured some fairly high profile writers, artists, and musicians I know, and guess what? They are all acting like exhibitionist teenage halfwits too. They are all calling out their partners, blatantly hitting on attached people, posting fucking selfies or pics of their horrible kids or dinners, getting catty and passive aggressive with their best mates, threatening to end it all or posting direct threats of violence drunkenly. It might be good for people who are housebound or live a long way away from their IRL mates but it's a madhouse and I've heard even worse things about twitter.

You're describing narcissism, not exhibitionism. I like exhibitionism, whether it's me or others doing it. It's a nice, harmless taboo.

To an extent, it has always been like this as far as I remember. If only the scale was noticeably smaller (journalists wouldn't interview those people).
