its fun when someone from a different organization invites you to a teams meeting and if you click on the join meeting button from outlook it creates an infinite loop of launching a browser tab that tries to launch a teams session that launches a browser tab etc. the only fix is to close teams and click on the join in browser button before it can reopen teams

its actually unironically very cool and good that windows 10 has a built-in 3d object viewer so you can preview .obj files without loading up blender or something equally heavy

Microsoft has a incredible ability to make things they have complete control over not work. reminds me of an error I encountered where for months I could not install windows 10 updates (tried all the troubleshooting steps multiple times) until I find a random reddit post saying to disable a certain windows mixed reality service and it actually worked

my htpc likes to reset itself to stereo output whenever it wakes from sleep but if I just adjust the windows volume so it makes that sound it remembers itís supposed to be 5.1. truly baffling behavior and running a program that produces sound doesnít fix it like adjusting the volume specifically from the notification area does

i'm still mad that clicking the audio icon doesn't open the mixer anymore

and that there isn't even a setting to change it back

if you have the Xbox overlay running you can hit win+g and it has a mixer pane, I actually find it to be really useful

teams has new unsightly animated emoji. but you can also use the system emoji picker and it uses the system emoji font for those. good use of engineering resources there

In desperation I installed windows 11 and it seems to have fixed the specific issue I was having. and honestly itís not that much worse than windows 10, which made me realize I had gotten used to how annoying windows 10 was in the first place

microsoft laid off an ethics and society team that was supposed to guide ai development. on one hand, too on the nose to even be funny. on the other, Iím sure they had exactly zero influence ever and there are three other teams with an identical purview still operating somewhere in the ms hierarchy

i also kind of wonder how much nuts-and-bolts ai microsoft do themselves at this point, publicly at least they're certainly on the openai train.

youíre right but microsoft is releasing openai stuff under their own brand, like image creation stuff, bing chat or whatever. thatís what the team was focused on, for example how to credit artists when people used image generation to rip off their style. none of that was implemented of course

the ms store seems extremely shady and I donít trust anything that I didnít get from a direct link from the developers website. there are tons of scam apps and Iím sure malicious repackages of legit software is rampant

do any of y'all actually use onedrive for storing personal files with any sort of expectation that they will not disappear or be hacked by china or whatever?

i have other backup solutions in place but i am getting old and lazy and onedrive is JUST THERE waiting to be used on my PC

the annual pricing actually seems cheaper than s3 unless you use a s3 glacier option. i wish there was a good private '1 tb of cloud storage for free' option but you get what you pay for i suppose

yeah I use OneDrive, itís fine if youíre okay working around its limitations. namely you canít sync arbitrary folders, you have to put everything into the onedrive folder on your pc, and it doesnít have a Linux client. I mostly use it because it comes with my office 365 family subscription tbh
