Ever been working along on something, and you see an ad or get an error that just boggles the mind? You look at it and just think to yourself, “what the… why did they… I… don’t… can’t… even… imagine. Ugh idiot!” Well here’s a few that have hit me lately.
I know, really, NOT a big deal at all. 1 penny. But seriously, it’s supposed to be the free tier. It probably cost MORE to charge 1 penny against my credit card than to just fix the mistake. Meh, whatever, it’s rather hilarious really.
I got nuthin’. Seriously, this is inexcusable for a corporate environment. How many other security protocols or other things are completely in disrepair? This type of nonsense actually concerns me. (and btw, this was using Chrome, the IE message for IE 9 came up the same way)
Oh dear. It’s bad enough using TFS internally, but hosted! I can only imagine the horror! In addition, at $20 bucks you could have gigs upon gigs of private storage for a Git or Mercurial account. My take, go get an Unfuddle or Repository Hosting Account and use a seriours distributed source control system. It’s time to step away from the sourcesafe… err, I mean TFS… and use a functional, scalable, and non-hindrance prone source control system.
Hope that was entertaining. That was my PSA (Public Service Announcement) of the week. Enjoy.
