Infuriating technology!

As a Comp Sci (aka X-Comp aka XxXtreme cool guys) I know when certain things can and can't be done with technology. The two technology problems that really piss me off:

  • Why can't I have a way of taking a picture on my phone and sharing it easily? Currently I have to bluetooth sync with my Windows laptop, VNC in to it from my main Linux laptop, upload the file to my webserver, and then link it before it becomes available! If my phone ran Linux I could easily write a script. Grr. And the 'shareware' (crippleware) FTP client for smartphone is worse than useless.
  • Why does Windows XP do a better job than Linux at using a VPN? I've got a VPN server set up in Linux on my server, and I can use it just fine from Windows – but using the same software on my Linux laptop – openswan – I just can't get it to do anything. It sets up a connection then looks blankly back at me. All I want is a PSK client!!! No bastard certificates…

ARGH! Infuriating
