What is it about tech companies and their ina-fucking-bility to create a website that doesn't make you want to track down their coding monkeys and peel them and roll them in salt?
Because I work with Informix, I spend a lot of time on IBM's website. 'Nuff said.
But it's not just them. Today, I was advised that there was a new release of the VMware player available. OK, I thought, let's get that then. Try and reg up a new account. No, you're already registered. Use my normal password. Nope. OK, try the "forgot password" link.
Now remember, this is to fucking download VMware player, nothing else.
They send me some entirely random password, one I definitely would never have chosen. So I didn't set that. So I log in. And it asks me a whole shitload of questions, which I answer. It then sends me ANOTHER fucking email that contains the download link.
So I click the link and ... it asks me to fucking log in AGAIN.
And don't get me FUCKING STARTED ON THEIR FUCKING INSTALL PROCESS WHICH TAKES HALF A FUCKING DAY AND REQUIRES A CUNTING REBOOT!!!!
Fucking useless cunt monkeys...
