That the Logitech Squeezebox Duet I just unpacked is fucked up out of the box:

The damn WiFi remote doesn't work properly (it powers up, but the display doesn't do shit), which means I can't configure the box, which means this is a useless pile of garbage. But hey, it's only 300 Euros, right? :rolleyes:

Can't you return it/exchange it?:blink:

Sure I can, but I have to wait until the new year has arrived, cause the guys I got it from don't start to take up work again before January. And I expect a quality control of a 300 Euro product to be able to check whether the damn thing goes on before they ship it out to the shops.

- Christmas
Sure its nice seeing family and friends, but hell do I hate the decorations, music, commercialization of it, the food (Turkey? Seriously? Its dryer than the sun).

- My life/mind.
Why, if I have so much ahead of me, do I feel like I am lacking something so great?

Agreed^infinity on the Christmas commercialism/food rant.

I really don't like the food.

Best part about today: no more Christmas music for a while. THANK GOODNESS.

Ow! That sucks, and yes they should have made sure it worked correctly before leaving the factory.

We're finally gonna need a car where we're going.
Organizations/Foundations that suddenly want money in December cause the whole world is dying from something during X-mas.

Having no monies anymore thanks to trying to spread some Christmas cheer (when I really have none and hate the whole damn freaking thing). Bah humbug!

As an atheist I must say: AMEN :p

You are on a forum you lazy twit! You should not only know how to read and write, you should spell out the fucking words to prove you do.

Animated avatars. Extremly annoying trying to read something when something else is jumping up and down, in the corner of my eye, basically screaming "LOOK AT ME! HELLO?! IM OVER HERE! LOOK!!!"

FUCK OFF!

I don't mind the subtle ones (Jay's is a perfect example), but the flashy ones can be a bit irritating. The .sigs get out of control too (to the point where I turn them off via the user CP).

You made me realize that I haven't heard it anywhere this year. Not even in the supermarket! :)

me neither, strange really :blink:


You guys should have switched on to NDR2. I suppose the average waiting time for it to be played was 30 minutes or so :cry: Together with "Thank God it's Christmas" from Queen and "Something about Christmas Time" by Bryan Adams. Those three songs make up the annual Christmas radio trio of horror.

Thankfully it's over now and radio will return to the usual shallow lala music... wait, shit :(

People complaining about avatars when the simple solution is easily reachable via UserCP.

I get annoyed by animated avatars, but you are right. It is easier to just turn it all off

old ladies who talk to their pets like they understand EVERYTHING.
And then want you to do the same...

They understand quite a bit more than you'd think, although I'd never expect anyone else to talk to my pets.

Just old ladies? my mother does that to, to a hairball with feet!
