I had to look that up

Trying to get quotes today for web hosting. Because we have an 'app' then we have to talk to the 'hosting architects' wherever we went for a quote - all of whom had more knowledge of 'plumbing' (aka the wires, networking and such) but beggorah all of application / server planning.

I really really hate developing web apps.

I'll revise mine to include "having to work out why these internet browser creating muppets can't get their .... act together and just agree what the rules mean instead of having to flounce about and interpret them all differently and then argue forever about why they had it right and everyone else is wrong".

And thats before I start on the mega-muppets who design JavaScript. Some seriously bad drugs were involved there...

I hear about the "browser incompatibilities" from my wife all the time... she does web design (not applications however). Maddening when something as simple as spacing shows up differently on different browsers...

YES! Especially when it's a website of a large company, which can afford to get it right, and especially when it's a basic function like Logging In...!

Today's annoyance; our decrepit old cat, who wouldn't eat any of the THREE different kinds of food we tried on her this morning. *grumble*

Nuts, bolts and other hardware when dropped seems to find a hiding place and when found refuse to come out. How can it just fall in but take 20 minutes to get it out, if you ever do.

Expensive tools which fall into the smallest, hardest to get to, spaces. Like my brother-in-law's superfancy torx key that's been sitting between my transmission and its mounting bracket for the last 9 months. I had to buy him a whole new set, since they don't sell individual keys
