Use this thread to pour your guts out. We're here to listen and offer advice.
The senior HR officer at my work who changes her interpretation of policy and procedure according to the whim of the senior manager chairing any given meeting. Her teeth are like a yappy little dog's teeth, in fact her mouth is like a Yorkshire terrier wearing lipstick.
They're not showing the second series of Enlightened in England.
Someone on DL posted a link to a place you can download the episodes but I had to download a player and it was full of spyware and add-ons.
Can't seem to get off me big fat duff!
Deleted threads on DL.
I love my new job, but I had to move from a warm place to a c-c-cold place to get it. I thought I knew what I was getting into, but this weather is KILLING me!!!
Summer's Eve and Massengel don't seem to be effective anymore. And lets not even bring up the store brands. Why. Why? WHY!!!!!!!
DL kicked the Connie Ford thread in the cunt. I want to kick DL in the cunt.
1. All of my big projects require cooperation with other adults who have complex time constraints - like kids and day jobs
2. Everything I don't want to do is tedious, but needs to be done while I have time on my hands
3. I should put my laptop in jail so I can get icky work done
4. I have some money, but I'd like to enroll in an advanced audit class - required to sit for CPA exam. I may need the cash for bills if I can't change the job situation.
5. All the jobs for which I'm applying take time to interview, interview, and interview before any decisions are made
6. I promised myself I wouldn't give advice this year and now I have a flock of straight people whining to me. I'm letting them vent. It's difficult keeping my mouth shut.
I've had that horrible Jack Wagner song "All I Need" stuck in my head for days now, all because the thread-- which I have never clicked into-- keeps popping up on the DL front page.
"...to be sure, what I feeeeeeeel..."
Sitting on a Board of Directors that do not have the collective balls to fire the fucking 50-something ED who abuses women and turns a blind eye to reportable offenses. Their solution? Keep him on while trying to change his behavior.
My lack of drive, and then again I really don't care.
My adult kids are on spice. They don't listen to my pleas to stop.
Don't invite me to dinner and neglect to mention that it's going to cost me $2000.
I want Lance so bad but he doesn't want me!
My computer has decided that none of my programs will play mp4s anymore.
I couldn't find a speeder that I really liked, with the open cockpit and the right speed capabilities.
fucking and running over the wife and kids o f my buddies.
Basic office civility. When you ask me a question and I promptly respond, please say thanks or follow up with me if I didn't give you the right information. Your superiors are all courteous, you should try to emulate them with someone on your same level.
Bureaucratic stasis. My supervisor used to be very open and accepting of suggestions to improve our location. Now everything gets dismissed and shutdown upon presentation, usually with the excuse that he has to ask his manager, which results in rejection.
I suppose he could be telling the truth but I suspect (as it appears) he's pre-quit his job and intends to do nothing more than the minimum required until he finds his way out.
My Raw Mix No.1 doesn't contain nearly enough brazil nuts. I'm about to go all Amy Bishop about it.
I'm always frustrated when there is a shortage of cute men to spank--to spank is to be frustration free.
R2 you can watch the entire series here and it's free usually the put locker links are the best. No need to download anything either.
Thanks SO much, R25! I watched the first episode and it worked, no nonsense. I thought that website had been shut down when they got all heavy about...everything.
Now I need to think of a new frustration to post.
First thing that springs to mind is a TV show here in England I think called The Sherrifs. They are a sort of collection agency. If someone takes someone to court and they don't get paid these guys have to go and get the money. There was an old widow who'd been done over by builders, taken them to court and still they hadn't paid up. Such NASTY people praying on the weak, poor and vulnerable. It stayed with me all day yesterday.
Some of these old crooks, who rip people off, are so nasty if you cast them in a film you'd think it was ridiculous.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
