Click and, uh...



You can't see, but there's another monitor sitting right alongside the one in this picture. Have a look at the screen; that should give you the idea. There's a lot of information on there, and a lot of things to adjust. No problem though. Just click SAVE and you're all set, right?

No.

This "industry standard" piece of software sucks my superfluous nipple. Turns out, there are some things it doesn't save, and once you find this out, you have to go through, double-check, and reset all the shit that it decided to forget for you.

Good news? It really only forgets one thing.
Bad news? You use that one thing all the time.

Fuckers. How did this ever get released?

"Well, we don't quite have the SAVE thing worked out, but we think it's otherwise pretty full-featured."
"Great work! Let's go to press!"

Reminds me that I've always considered the phrase "industry standard" a bit of a red flag. Wish I'd remembered that a few days ago.


p.s. Am I the only one who wants to see a copy of this video?
