Journal History

So, my laptop has decided to stop giving me low-battery warnings, and just shut itself off. A friendly reminder that this thing cost £500 pounds and occasionally actually functions the way it's supposed to.

So when I finally got the thing going again, I tried to open Skype. Skype proceeded to open twice. The first was my normal Skype window. The second was a message telling me that it couldn't open Skype because I was already signed in. No problem, right? Close the second one and move on.

Until you remember that Skype was designed by a complete moron who thinks that "Close" should really be "minimize". Because that's a useful feature, right? A program that won't close if you click the close button. Funnily enough, clicking the close button more often than not means that they want the program to close. If I wanted to minimize it, I would click minimize. THe only way to close Skype is to right click on it in the task bar and click "Quit Skype". Yes, even Alt-F4 only minimizes.

Well, the second page is an error, right? So it will go away by itself! Nope. It's a sign-in option. It's asking me to log out and log back in again. So I decide to close Skype via the normal way and restart. And it only closes the window where I'm actually signed in.

Dude, I've seen your argument with :iconpsyco-the-frog:.

Don't bother talking to him. He's IMPOSSIBLE to knock sense into.

Trust me. I've tried.

Just leave him to his bellyaching over what coulda-shoulda-woulda, and you'll have a better life. Believe me.

Still, you have as much of a shot reasoning with that big baby as you have winning the lottery.

Just keep him to his "I'm So Cool" universe, and eventually, reality will nip him on the ass. HARD.
