Skudd's Grumps

December, 2021

I am feeling incredibly overwhelmed and grumpy today.

This hold music is interrupted every third measure by the standard "have your information handy" recording.

The pronunciation of "Hors d'oeuvre"

A GPU driver update broke my cryptomining. I had to roll back to an older driver to get it to work again.

The diceware phrase for the last private Grump I made was wholly xenophobic and inappropriate.

Video games are supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable. They are all being pushed by their offering managers that the releases and updates are so far from good quality that the games suffer and cause the people who spend money on them to feel cheated and frustrated.

Star Citizen is a pile of dog poo.

Waking up before the sun is fully up due to a caffeine headache.

The Cessna 208 in MSFS 2020 is so broken after this last update, it's un-fly-able.

I was going to give Jr his iPad, but the living room looked like Toy Story had vomited all over the place.

I was snoring away in my chair, only for Jr to wake me up, asking to play on his iPad.

I am so incredibly tired of these stupid web applications that load a basic static page, then use JavaScript and async requests to load the relevant information on the page.

Go go Gadget Excedrin!

Festering ant bites on my lower left leg.

I was just looking at Jr's math schoolwork and saw "12 - 8 = ___". I had to think about it for a couple of minutes before I realized the answer.

My authentication cookie expired and I had to log in again.

Robinhood sent me an email to disclose that they had a security breach that has exposed my email address to the attacker. This means that I'll start seeing more spammy and scammy emails.

I haven't added "forgotten password" support on GrumpLog, and it's been 5 years since I launched the site.

Facebook, stop alerting me about things, especially when you won't let me see them.

I get so tired of the clearly-Photoshop'ed text on things, attempting to make it look like it was originally handwritten. It's even worse when people use Comic Sans as the font.

I woke up to the sound of garbage trucks early this morning. We only get trash pick-up Monday and Thursday. Between that and the nonsense I'm seeing elsewhere, I'm not so sure it isn't actually Monday.

My desk chair is so noisy.


People talking on the phone when it's set to speakerphone mode in public.

My Jimmy Dean egg cup thing is supposed to have the egg cooked for 1 minute before mixing in the meat and cheese. I didn't pay attention and cooked my egg for 2 minutes. The cheese and meat is now just a sprinkled topping, despite having been cooked for a minute after the egg was fully cooked.

Work meeting went long and delayed me getting to my appointment in time.

Facebook Messenger keeps sending me a mobile notification for the SAME SINGLE MESSAGE.

I woke up this morning with a mild headache. I figured a cup or two of coffee would help, but it didn't, so I took some Excedrin. A couple hours later and the headache is very intense and feeling migraine-y.

4:30PM meetings

I can't bring myself to look at any "news" sources today. Mostly because I don't want to have to add another section of drywall to my list of walls to repair. No, the other holes aren't from anger.
