This is a question Things I've gone off

Spimf says: I've always enjoyed listening to Pink Floyd, but lately I've noticed if my iPod plays any of their tracks, I skip them. I'm starting to realise I've gone off them. What have you gone off lately?

He used to post endlessly amusing and/or interesting stories to QOTW week-in, week-out, but these past 8 years he seems to have just given up trying to make b3ta a worthwhile site to visit.

But please, whatever you do, don't ignore him. He doesn't like that.

I've gone off unbalanced threads.
There was always mundane stuff in some of the threads on here but it was counter-balanced by sometimes witty criticism of the OP's and others' comments. A poor thread could be saved from mediocrity by the input of other members (ooh missus).
With judicious use of the ignore button a, do you mind if I say, boring poster can isolate himself from criticism so that it appears that the forum in general approves of his contribution.
Is the ignore button, in the wrong hands, unfair censorship of material which as forum members, we should be entitled to read and comment about?

My old cock
I had an old boss that used to eat sardines in his office, and chucked all the tins in the corner.
If I neglect the old fella even briefly he puts out a stink like that office.
He's up when he should be down and down when he should be up.
If I ever give him a little encouragement he pays me back by waiting for a full bladder to start working to rule.

iPod touch, iPhones & iTunes.
Call me a dinosaur. This isn't meant as an Applebash but may well turn into one.
Our household is a mishmash of operating systems - my daughters netbook is windows8, the missus laptop is xp and that's the way she likes it. The house tablet is Android - I've managed to root every android device I've owned - with absolutely no fucking dramas whatsoever! Me, I can count on one hand the number of times I've logged into the windows (7 I think, or vista) drive on this desktop.
For the geeks- debian, but since I spend most of my time in tty1, I always have xfce just to keep it gui.

xp - "Windows cannot find a driver for this device - do you want to look online?" Even when you do get the drivers sorted then you install itunes. & the fun begins..
"Ipod touch device needs resetting - warning all data will be lost" Oh goody, no chance to back up and I get to lose all those games I downloaded. Yay! I even tried jailbreaking it (redsn0w and blackra1n) - nada.

linux - found it in lsusb, mounted it in /mnt/ thru /dev/, installed gtkpod, found it was too old (debian repos. for you!), got it from git and built that. Once, only once having had to gksudo a file manager did I find it and was able access files on it. EDIT: Yes I did try install itunes thu wine. Suffice to say, I did not have the last laugh.
If any of that didn't make sense to you and you own an iPhone and want try linux - think twice.

windows8 - "Windows did not recognise this device." Back to the Apple Knowledgebase. Install drivers, install itunes, rinse & repeat.

I have a 2nd gen. 32gb ipod touch going cheap. My missus is getting rid of the iphone and going android. My sister in law paid just shy of AUD$1000 more than what my work laptop cost for a macbook. With lower specs. than my laptop.
Me, aside from the whole "treating pancreatic cancer with hoodoo", I think Steve Jobs was one of the smartest men on the planet.
Sell people something you've told them looks good, make small changes as iterations but sell them as huge innovations and above all else make sure you keep your hardware/software closed so that the only place to get it from is you. Fucking brilliant.

Anyone with suggestions - I appreciate it but there's probably a good chance I've tried it. If you want a really cheap old ipod touch gaz me.

after a night on some ropey 90% proof shit from the philippines that saw me vomiting for 4 hours straight and then walking across waterloo bridge in my nightdress and passing out on the strand.

vodka with diet coke (keeping them separate is fine) after a night on some ropey own brand from kwik save that tasted suspiciously of almonds and saw me vomiting for 4 hours straight and passing out face down in a flowerbed whilst my so-called friends took pictures of me and covered me in petals. they only thought that i might have died about 3 hours later.

whisky after a night on some seriously ropey shit that we mixed with fresh orange (we were 14) in the absence of anything better and that saw me vomiting for about 4 hours straight the following morning whilst trying to hide it from my parents.

and so on. there is a bit of a theme here.

Not sure if it was discovering that the woman I thought was the love of my life, my soulmate was really my pretzel-headed sister, or the fact that I now have a robotic right hand.
