f*ck you windows. seriously. just f*ck you. i explain:
i just installed turbotax. and itunes. which both put shortcuts on my desktop. cause of course they do. cause obviously they're THE MOST IMPORTANT THING i do on my computer. anywho, i don't want them there. it used to be i could just drag them into the recycle bin. and windows would pop up a user access thing demanding i enter an administrator password. cause you know, windows needs to be sure that i want to actually do what i told it to do. which was irritating. really frikken irritating. but they'd be gone. and good riddance. at least until next time. sigh.
anywho, so imagine my surprise today when i dragged the suckers into the recylcle bin and they frikken ignored me. no permission request. nothing. just fuck you. we're not going. you can't delete us. we're THE MOST IMPORTANT THING on you computer. sigh. so i started up a command shell as administrator. then i had to wander through the various user desktop to find the stupid links. they went quietly into the bit bucket.
i pretty much only use windows for taxes and 3d printing. and i wouldn't if i had a viable option. hint hint. is anyone hearing opportunity? you should be.
