Why are some people so opposed to using their signal lights? I was at a 4 way stop. Guy across from me was turning left, but didn't signal. I started going straight since the assumption was he's going to go straight too. Yes, I know that I'm supposed to be stopped until he's passed through the intersection. And I knew there was a good chance guy was turning. I wasn't actually going to proceed through the intersection, I just wanted to prove a point, and a chance to yell at the guy to use his effing turn signals when he gave me the wtf hand signal as he was turning.

Using Microsoft Edge and going into some forums, if you use scroll on your mouse it will generate forward or reverse pages.
Just seemed to start on CP, even though it was happening on other ones for awhile.

It's not that they are opposed to using signal lights. They are just lazy and inconsiderate. Really signalling is all about being considerate to the drivers around you and that's becoming a lost art in regards to driving.

They do that on purpose though. Microsoft is the Evil Empire and they are using their nearly unlimited power just to mess with you. Presumably because they find it funny.

The state of the Canadian oil industry and how no big projects can get done really grind my gears. US has announcements on new export terminals for their oil every few weeks, Canada cannot even get one completed to date.

Yah the ineptitude of this country is staggering. But everyone seems to want to be a welfare state and soon I imagine we will be so, yay?

Yup, even when I go Incognito it just doesn't matter.

But nobody uses their ####ty browsers. IE and Edge combined have less than 5% of the total browser market share worldwide. That's less than Firefox and a tenth of Chrome's market share.

That's your IT department saying you're spending too much time on CP and to get back to work.

I was curious if windows would ever try and tank the other browsers.

Apple grinds my gears.
and if this is true, it's another reason to dislike them.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...developer.html


Apple quietly blocks its Gay Pride watch face for Apple Watch wearers in Russia, according to prominent iOS develpoer Guilherme Rambo.

When the Apple Watch detects it is being used in Russia, the software will automatically hides the rainbow-coloured Pride watchface.

This behaviour is 'hardcoded' into the software, said Guilherme Rambo, who first discovered the quirk.

The worst is getting stuck behind someone at a red light without a dedicated left turn lane who starts signalling once the light turns green. I see it happen at a couple intersections on my commute every day. Cars in left lane and no one is signalling a turn so I assume traffic will move smoothly once the light turns green. When it does the guy at the front of the line starts indicating he is turning left and at that point it becomes impossible to get into the right lane to get around him.

One of the worse things a person can do. I just assume they have no courtesy in real life either. Auto DB in my books.

Maybe we get what we pay for. Time to start offering more competitive salaries?

This isn't really anything new though is it? Every tech or whatever company who operates in ####ty countries has to do this stuff don't they? They could boycott but no one does that.
