use this to get off the steam when you need it.

I fricking got home today to realize my brother updated my PC to Windows 10, without asking me at all. I'm so pissed now, I'd like to kill him.

I don't want this bullshit. I liked windows 7. After 5~10 years I finally got used to it and came to like it quite a bit. Sure it had flaws, many of which I found ways around, but overall it wasn't too bad. The main point is adjusting to something. You can adjust to anything it just takes time. Time Which I DON'T FREAKING HAVE RIGHT NOW! This is pure bullshit and I'd like to start nuclear wars with many countries.

I don't like windows 10, it's very different, it's not suited to my needs. This is bullshit, it's not fair. Maybe this is really only just one in a long list of signs that was telling me what I should be doing.

I am so sorry.

I've heard Windows 10 is an improvement on 8 which is what I have, but going from 7 to 10 must be a nightmare. :(

I still wish I had XP. That was pretty much unequivocally the best.

I'm kinda surprised you can still even do that, I thought the free upgrades to Windows 10 ended over a year ago already.

If I recall, you have like 3-10 days to roll back the upgrade (in your case back to Windows 7), I don't remember the exact steps but I'm sure you can find them on Google.  Of course, I suppose there could be a small risk that the roll back may not work smoothly and then you could wind up with a brick (though I haven't heard any such stories on that, most stories were about unwanted upgrades).

I'd suggest trying to adapt anyway. It's not a bad environment.

today's topic: PASSWORDS.

in particular: WEBSITES THAT FORCE YOU TO USE MORE COMPLEX PASSWORDS

First of: I understand the reason behind using a complex password; and I generally agree with this concept. For websites like your bank, or anything containing personal information that has a danger of being corrupted; you should use a difficult to guess password and you should change it often.

Here's the problem: These suggestions keep coming up on websites where this is not an issue at all. I don't freaking care if someone hacks my AnimeList account. What are they gonna find out? What shows I've been watching; I don't give a horse's A$$!. What's so annoying is they force you to have a really extra long password with lots of numbers and capital letter/non-capital letters. These are really hard to remember. I spend time making a good password for important s---. When it comes to sites like these; I want to spend as little time on the password screen as possible. I don't feel like having to remember 50 thousand difficult passwords for all the stupid websites I visit. And the funny thing is: you don't get these reminders on sites like google; email, my bank's website. Ya know the few places where it's actually important, where someone might benefit from this advice. No, on these sites you can just use your dogs name so your neighbor can hack your account. But heaven help us if they hack into my anime list account; my life will be over. F------ horse----.

Clearly a popular strip -- I typed "xkcd" into google and "password" was the first offered choice for completion.

I tried clicking your bronco451 internet thing on another website and I just remember oh I've already added an internet, you have 104 internets now. :) (All my life I want chicken, you might remember that one)

Oh passwords can get annoying at times, I think I sometimes struggle with my short term memory and certain passwords I end up forgetting. I don't like it when I forget a password because it means you have to request a new one which can take a bit of time.

Actually something that has scared me would be if you were to have left your facebook or twitter account on and you were logged in on the computer someone else could go on that computer and post a very rude message, those type of messages that get you into trouble such as threatening to kill someone or other messages that can get you into trouble.

I know in the UK they are getting stricter when it comes to social media.

Another new topic; already! from the same website too:

Websites with those stupid annoying bars that follow you around.

You've probably seen this: They often appear at the top, side or bottom of a webpage and they move when you scroll down the page. They usually move in a dramatic way too, to grab your attention. Well they're a$$. They're a distraction, not to mention the fact that they block a portion of the page you're trying to read! Who invented these things? Someone who wanted to irritate visitors to their webpage?
Having buttons quickly acessible is nice; but this is best handeled like other sites have: a bar that remains at the top or bottom of the page and doesn't cover up existing text/images. These bars don't move and never get in the way. That's how it should be done.

All my life I've been hungry :D

Being a web developer they always warned us to not use those bars that follow you around, or at least practice extreme caution with them. Not only can it be annoying to a user but it can block a lot of content especially when viewing said website on a phone. Even those bars that remain on top can be problematic if done incorrectly. The code used to keep them up there can sometimes be very buggy on mobile devices, like when it seems to jump when you scroll up or down, or when the entire webpage seems to jump upwards when the bar starts sticking to the top (although that's caused by not "filling" in the space the bar left behind when it changes it's position from relative to absolute).
