Anythime there's ranked, there's whiners. Might be why I dislike competitive stuff so much. Why bother making it a show of who has the biggest dick. Might be why I also dislike PvP games.

True, there's always a whiny tryhard and since Overwatch revolves around switching characters to counter it can be a pain when you get a dumbass that won't switch because "muh main" or some bullshit like that.

Kinda like when you have a Pharh/Mercy on the enemy team going unchecked but the dumbfuck Reaper doesn't want to switch to a hitscan to help.

Yeah, I know that feeling. Like the white mage getting all the aggro in FF14 and getting killed over and over... If you can't bother to play the game as a team, why play it at all? As if everyone had all the time just to give a specific player most of the attention.

Don't remind me. Hell even in competitive where you'd expect people not to be as bad I've seen some people do stuff that just baffles me. Reinhardt players that charge in leaving the team vulnerable and are so far in the enemy team's backline they're dead, Winston players that jump in on an enemy group with no support and get slaughtered, and the usual favorite: The DPS that doesn't communicate and thinks he can lone wolf everything while away from the team.

People who think that when you are trying to correct their behavior, that is not improving despite being addressed multiple times, instead turn it into a personal vendetta you have with them.

Obviously if it is something that has to be constantly addressed...it isn't me picking on you, it is you doing something wrong that needs to stop. -.-

I went out and sprung for a new computer this weekend as my old one still runs XP and they don't make external HDDs compatible with it any more. As the 1TB drive I was using to store most of my life on recently kicked up and died I wanted to make sure that I could quickly get the backup onto a new drive, so I grabbed a 4TB My Book. Got the new computer hooked up and started copying things; first everything I've written, then my MP3s, finally pictures and my hentai stash which comprised the bulk of the roughly 910GB on my backup drive, which contained roughly 99% of what was on the drive that was lost. This took the better part of two nights. I couldn't help but notice it took a very long time to copy large numbers of smaller picture files. Oh well, only had to do it once.

Finally finished the undertaking at around 3 AM this morning. Shut the computer down, stashed away my backup drive safely and went to bed. After work this evening, I got home, fired up the computer and got ready to transfer the two smaller drives I keep most of my MMD stuff on to the new drive so I can play with MMD on my new computer and finally use it the way it's meant to be. I glanced at the free space on disk... and stopped. 910GB of data was taking up 1.76TB of file space on disk.

Ten seconds on Google and a quick glance at my file system (which would have been quicker if Windows 10 didn't suck buttermilk through its asshole but that' a whole other story). WD formats the fucking drives in exFAT, not NTFS. That's why the tiny pictures were taking so long; the drive was assigning enormous allocation tables to them, which then caused them to take up massive amounts of disk space. Aside from cross platform with Macs I cannot fathom why anyone would use such an inefficient file system.

Soooo I had to reformat the drive into NTFS which wiped out everything I just transferred and now I get to do it all over AGAIN. Meaning I have to leave my backup drive plugged in and vulnerable to power surges a second time. (Yes, I have a strip. No, it doesn't do shit if something like lightning hits the circuit. At least my power lines are buried.) The only good thing about it is that the file transfer is going way, way faster now that the drive is in NTFS. I'm two thirds of the way through of copying my roughly 60,000 sound files and I just started it at the time I started typing this post. Also reformatting to NTFS wiped out all the WD utilities on the drive, not that I was going to use them, but it was nice to know they were there.

Moral:

WHATEVER TEH FCUK YOU DO ALWAYS REFORMAT YOUR EXTERNALS TO NTFS BEFORE YOU START COPYING SHIT. (sic)

Also: Windows 10. Sucks. I've heard Windows 8 was worse, but this is bad enough. I had to get through like fifty screens just to start it up the first time and they tried to sign me up for all kinds of shit I won't use. No, I'm not giving you my contact information so you can flood me with spam. I can't even get a My Computer icon to put on my desktop, there physically is no way to create a "This PC" shortcut. I have to put a fucking tile on a fucking start menu that requires a fucking scrollbar because there's so much shit I'm not going to use and didn't ask for cluttering it up. No Cortana, I'm not going to talk to you, if I'm going to end up in a codependent relationship with a virtual woman it's going to be GUMI, dammit. And I've never played Halo.

It should be pointed out I've been using Windows XP since 2005, and before that I used Windows 98 so I'm used to the old menus, but I use Windows 7 at work and it's totally fine. But it is gone, never to return. Why Microsoft felt this was necessary is beyond me. I know there are third party programs I can buy to mimic the old style functionality but I should not have to. This is why I put off buying a new computer for so long, it's like having to learn a foreign language, they've changed so much. Nothing is where it was before. Also I heard 10 does not have Windows Picture & Fax Viewer, which is like building a car and not putting headlights on it. Oh yeah, and no installation disc. Guess I better hope I never need to reinstall Windows!

Thirdly: Fucking Nintendo. Preorders finally go up for the damn SNES while I'm at work and they sell out in a minute. All to appear on eBay at 500% markup. It'd be one thing if I could get one later but I can't. One more thing I desperately wanted but will never lay my hands on because some executive can't bear the thought there might be a single box on some shelf somewhere that shipped but didn't get sold. But never mind that; they don't want my money, they just want to try to force more gimmicky controllers on me. Much like Microsoft, Nintendo hates things they've done right and want to make everybody use things they screwed up. They are forcing me to emulate.

That rant went on longer than I thought it would. The MP3s are all copied over, 58 GB in about 15 minutes. All that's left is the pictures which I just started. At least I should be able to get the second transfer done tonight at this rate, I'm getting 60-80MB/s as opposed to maybe 2-3MB/s when it was exFAT. In fact I think I'm going to get it done within an hour.

Fourthly, there's a whiny manchild currently trying to get every living thing on this globe killed but don't get me started.

Also my toilet tank is leaking.

If they still sold it I'd use it. Unfortunately my old laptop barely is spec'd to run Vista so I never even tried to use 7 on it. I actually had it downgraded to XP. My work computer uses 7 and it's smooth as hell. It sucks that Microsoft will still sell its old OSes to businesses but refuses to do so to consumers. The fact that so many businesses are still using 7 I think says it all. I'm dreading trying to get all my old games running on this new computer so my laptop will be kept until it dies.

Nothing like clicking on a JPG file and Windows going "DURRRRR which program am I supposed to use to open this?" It's pathetic.

Did you perchance purchase a Mybook ''Mac ready''? Cause so far, I never had any kind of troubles with windows only Mybooks. For me, a 512 Mo hentai file stays a 512 Mo hentai file.

Also, I agree Winshit 10 is crap. I have it on my laptop (had 8.1 on it before) and I hate it when winshit updates itself, reboot the whole laptop without my knowledge nor autorization and fucks everything up because it's winshit. That and I hate Apple and all it's I''stuff''. Overpriced for the brand is never a good thing, what are they gonna get out next? The IFuck? The ISit?, the IEat?, the IShit or the ISIS?... Wait, is Apple behind ISIS? I'm tired of all those terrorist attacks news on TV...

Only thing Apple has going for them is the Iphone, and even that is starting to get some heat... especially after the rumors of the pricing for the Iphone 8 (or whatever it will be called).

Well Gulk, the pricing is not rumored for the latest Iphone. $1000. Seriously, if I want to pay over the market price, I have to go with Apple. Good thing I hate them.

Now, small rant here about north american animation. Yesterday, I was shopping at Walmart and what do I not see? The latest Dreamworks movie called Capitaine Bobette (Captain Underwear) with a kid in underwear. Now this is highly questionable!
1. How come such art has been depicted when they can't depict a little girl topless on a sunscreen bottle! (seriously, there was a lawsuit against coppertone because of the topless little girl in their logo)
2. Where the fuck is the world going with north american animation!?!

I'm just going to name a few old and new shows.

We had the Smurf, we had Goldorak (Grandizer's french name), we had Albator (Captain Harlock's french name), the Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry and many other shows ripe with cartoonish violence and morals.

Today, kids get Sponge Bob (which seems to have been designed by someone on crack or something), Bugs Bunny: loft story style (no more cartoon violence today, they drive cars, go to pizza and even watch TV or have a psycho girlfriend), lego (now this is violence, they hit the enemy and he explodes in pieces, only to rebuild himself back with spare parts) and a few others on the same trend!

The only time you can see a cartoon or an animated work with violence in it, it's on Cartoon Network late hours and in japanese animation!

Since when did the kids give a crap about the ''healthy psyche of a children''!?! Yes, violence on TV can't be good for educational purposes but please! Please bring us back some cartoons where the road runner causes the coyote to hurt himself! Let kids be kids!

Chaotic week at work. Have 5 projects I'm juggling with now and need to meet deadlines before this Friday. So yay for late hours.

And to top that off my incompetent coworker is aware of this but still thinks I'm going to hold their hand through every thing they don't know.

This has been the month of annoyance, mainly first world problems incoming!

First, the fact that there is bills bills bills, all over the place right now and barely enough money to pay them all off. Thank god today I was told a raise is coming soon....not a very big one..but raise all the same.

Second, my graphics card went frrt on me quite unexpectedly, but it did last 4 years or so before it did. Luckily for now, I was able to 'bake' it and get it to work in a temporary stance cause I can't afford to buy a new one at the moment.

Lastly, today while going into work for a meeting, my rear driverside slave cylinder seized, locking the pad to the drum wall and cooking it until it cracked and broke apart. Spent a good couple hours getting the drum off to replace the pads and the cylinder on one side. Just have otherside and bleeding the brakes to go now. Glad I can save a bit by doing the work myself, but annoyed it always happens at the worst time.
