I now know what to do if I want to torture somebody - stick them in front of a PC with a device that is trying to randomly connect.
I know that is a good torture as I was close to breaking something trying to find out what was causing the irritating noise. I finally traced it to my partners mobile phone she had plugged into a USB lead I had connected. There was nothing on the screen that was telling me it was trying to connect as the phone was off. Why did it keep bleeping for about 10min; why did it not think I have been trying to connect for 10min without anything happening so I will stop trying?
Other similar things:
Did you mean to go full screen - yes that is why I clicked the full screen icon
Did I want to close full screen or exit - yes that is why I clicked the icon
Did I want the website to use my location - no that is why I turned my location off
Every time I pug in a USB device I get “Do I want to download and sync my data with every device I have contact with” - no if I wanted to do that I would initiate it.
At work it is nearly as bad as they use the “cloud” for everything and every piece of software I use is linked to every other piece I am scared to delete anything a I delete the wrong thing.
Onenote syncing - I ended up with about 20 versions of the same thing on my PC as instead of syncing it was copying until I found a way to turn syncing off.
Buying goods - At the self service till “Have you brought your own bag?” click the yes button and scan the first item and before I can get it in the bag there is a message “unknown item on the scales” Yes that is the bag I just told you I have. Wait for the assistant to wander over and reset the error before I can proceed. People must think I am mad as I argue with the till!!!
