Not sure if anyone also feel like me but I really get annoyed when I have to think about things I shouldn't have in first place. Below are few examples of things that I get really annoyed at:
- Like this blog If I am pasting xml code I have to convert it to xml entities instead of copy paste. This blogger should take care of it.
- When you enter credit card information some sites use expiration month names instead of numbers. The credit card itself shows the expiration month as a digit then why the hack I have to convert it to a word when I enter it, instead of entering 7/11 I have to think oh yaa 7 is Jun and I have to select June 11.
- Like the Grouping function in Windows task bar. if I have 4 Firefox windows open I have to click first on the taskbar on FF icon then think oh which window I have to open. I usually disable that feature.
- I use this tool called as HotKey Plus that will allow me to type CTRL+ALT+F to open FF. But when I go to other developer machine to debug I hate when this combination doesnt work as I have to open start menu and then search it. Atleast windows7 allows me to search through the available programs by start typing.
- Like everytime I start tomcat I have to tail the log so why type two commands. Finally I stared using unix and started using aliases :). Looks like I hate when I have to repeat some thing manually that can be automated.
- Consistency is the Key. Like the ordering of buttons on ui is always OK then Cancel button. I was swiping my credit card and hit the first button after signing and damn the first button was cancel and I had to swipe the card again. So again I had to look and think oh yaa whats the order of buttons.
- Damn each key board maker shuffle keys and make then small or big and every laptop has different key set, its Qwerty but the order of keys is diff for numlock,delete and insert (I hate to make typing mistakes when I use my wife laptop as I am used to my keyboard, we both have Dell laptops but though the keyboards are different). Why does I have to again look at the keys and think when my subconscious mind had made the decision that this position is delete keys.
