Jaggoff Ajit Pai Finally Decides to Overhaul FCC Comment System Only After He Corruptly Gets His Way

CNET – The Federal Communications Commission is reportedly mulling changes to its online comment system after the public comment period on net neutrality prompted 22 million fake submissions.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has informed two senators that he’ll propose rebuilding and re-engineering the commission’s electronic comment system “to institute appropriate safeguards against abusive conduct,” The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

“It is troubling that some bad actors submitted comments using false names,” Pai said in the letter, according to the Journal. “Indeed, like you, comments were submitted in my name and my wife’s name that reflect viewpoints we do not hold.”

This fucking guy is literally the worst of the worst.  After months of ignoring everyone calling out the FCC (including his own commissioners) on how crooked the public record commenting system is, he finally decides it’s time to overhaul it ONLY AFTER he got his way. Are you fucking kidding me? Literally turned a blind eye to the entire process (ie – the New York Attorney General opened an official investigation on these fake comments and Pai told him to go fuck himself). But wait!  Someone impersonated Pai and his with viewpoints he doesn’t agree with? Stop the presses! We need to fix this comment system! He sincerely hopes congress approves the funds. WAT? These players told you to fix this bullshit last year.

Fuck this guy. He’s literally as low as they get. Someone ought to shatter his dumb, giant Reese’s mug and shove the shards up his hypocritical asshole.

Google Chrome Sucks Balls at Multi-Monitor/ Multi-DPI Settings on Windows 10

March 27th, 2018 6:25pm Comments off

Google Chrome is on my shit list on the grounds that they have blatant UI bugs with multi monitor multi DPI and they haven’t done dick about it in over a year. Bugs that are annoying AF that piss me off on the reg.

My setup:

  • Laptop Display: 3000×2000, 175% DPI scaling
  • Monitor 1: 1920×1200, 100% DPI scaling
  • Monitor 2: 1920×1200, 100% DPI scaling

So what’s the issue? Well, if I log in to Windows undocked to my other two monitors, everything is fine on the main laptop screen. But if I dock after that, certain elements of the UI are HUGE if I drag Chrome to my other monitors (file picker dialog, tooltips and scrollbars):

On the contrary, if I launch Chrome while docked, it looks good on my two 100% scaled monitors, but if I move it to my laptop display, some elements like tooltips and the save dialog are microscopic:

 

 

 

So in theory, they implemented multi monitor DPI in this Chromium ticket, but its implementation is garbage. Windows 10 realized that its OS level support for this stunk, so in the Anniversary Update, they added a thing called DPI_AWARENESS_CONTEXT_PER_MONITOR_AWARE_V2, which fixes a bunch of bugs. Of course, there’s a ticket to implement it here, which is unassigned and idle for over a year

You know what browsers don’t have this issue?

  • Firefox
  • Edge

Get your fucking lives together, Google. This is a technological embarrassment in 2018 that this isn’t supported properly. You don’t need to be a QA Engineer to see that it looks like shit. These are blatant UI issues that make the browser look horrendous. Come on. Don’t developers have multiple monitors. Can’t they realize this is junk?

Fix it.

I Don’t Have any Problem With an Emotional Support Dog Biting Your Dumbass Kid

February 23rd, 2018 3:13am Comments off

DALLAS (AP) — Southwest Airlines said Thursday that a dog injured a child as passengers boarded a flight in Phoenix, an event likely to fuel the debate over the growing number of emotional-support animals on planes.

A passenger on Wednesday’s Phoenix-to-Portland, Oregon, flight tweeted that a dog bit a girl as she approached it, and that she screamed and cried. The man, Todd Rice, did not immediately respond to a Twitter message seeking further comment.

Southwest said the dog’s teeth “scraped a child’s forehead” and paramedics checked the girl, who appeared to be 6 or 7 years old.

Southwest spokeswoman Melissa Ford said the dog was in the plane’s first row of seats with its owner, who said he warned the girl not to approach his dog.

Police interviewed the girl’s family and the dog’s owner. The family decided to remain on the plane, while the dog and its owner left and took a later flight, Ford said.

Judgment in favor of the support dog and his or her owner! The dog is a very good boy or girl, providing emotional support and protecting its owner from annoying little humans.

Rule number one with dogs (or really any pets) is that you always have to ask its owner permission to embrace it. Period. This is 100% the girl’s parent’ fault for not keeping their kid on a leash. They should have taught this to their child, and if the kid still didn’t listen, stopped her. I read 4-5 articles from different news sites to try to understand the full picture and my opinion stands. None of the articles mention the girl’s parents… That’s probably because they were like “well shit, we have no case here, they told our daughter not to pet the dog and she did anyway.” You know what also has signs that say Do Not Touch? The third rail. Getting a minor scrape on your face is nothing compared to electrocuting yourself to death.

This here is some bullshit:

  1. The flight was delayed 20 minutes, and you know how I feel about wasting people’s time
  2. The person with the emotional support animal had to take a later flight. F that noise. I’d throw the kid off the plane instead.

Also, fuck Kristine Phillips at the Washington Post for writing a biased article like an asshole:

She’s probably a cat loving, dog hating asshole. Nowhere did she mention that the owner told the girl not to approach the dog. Shame on her for that bullshit, completely misleading headline that made it sound like a child was attacked out of the blue.  Nope. A little girl didn’t “see a dog” and get attacked. She approached it when the owner told her not to. Serves her right. There are consequences for not following instructions and getting bitten in the face is a very good lesson.

But of course, America is getting softer by the day and I’m sure Southwest will change their policies on emotional support animals.
