What annoyed you today?
« on: August 13, 2009, 07:52:26 AM »
The recurring theme of those little things that definitely irk you ::)

The ITV Player  ???

I watch most of my TV online - the old programmes are the best and I don't have digital [just can't be bothered]. ITV probably have the best selection but their player is rubbish. Takes about 5 minutes to warm up - the advert breaks take up over 5 minutes as there's a blank screen in between them - some of the adverts blast out at twice the volume - sometimes you get to the last segment of the programme and the whole thing freezes - and I've found the only way to stop it totally freezing my whole system after the programmes over is to restart the PC.

And I think there's talk of them starting to charge for it!!

I saw on the news that News International are going to charge to view their newspapers online. As ITV posted a large loss in their results, it's possible they may consider the same. I think it's a possibility that others may do the same.  >:(

They seem to have more than enough adverts to pay for it!

I read these threads and sometimes feel inadequate because not much annoys me (though Future/DCMAG do a pretty good job sometimes).  ;) Even when things do irritate me I don't tend to remember them long enough to post about them. I think it may be a character flaw...

The only thing that really annoys me is there is not enough hours in the day  :( I really need an extra 8 hours per day to do what I want.

Spending about 3 hrs. shooting at a nearby botannical garden to discover I was shooting in Jpeg fine and a lot of the shots that are slightly off don't have enough detail in them to recover in my software.
And more, much more than this, I did it my way

Went swimming this evening and dropped my watch..... and now it doesn't work.

Managed to get the battery back in the right place (Though the holder is bust) and it to physically power up, but it won't show the right time.

Its a radio controlled one, and should set itself - but it seems to be 1 1/2 hours out - though at the moment its stuck at midnight.

Not happy, I like that watch :(
