    When you are trying to buy something on CL and the seller stops replying. Cash in hand ready to buy an ATV that doesn't run and the seller has dropped off the face of the earth apparently.

    Just give me the cash. You can keep the iphone. My work truck as CarPlay which is paired with my work iphone. They're discombobulated, unintuitive, buggy, unreliable mess. AndroidAuto has worked for me 95%+ of the time. CarPlay is currently batting 95%+ failure rate...

    [old man rant mode]

    I miss the days when you pushed a button and electronic devices actually worked with no fuss. You power up, and the next button executed exactly the function you wanted. And if it didn't, there was a verifiable physical component failure as the culprit.

    These days God forbid you don't sign your life away and subscribe (monthly payments, of course) on every platform, every separate app, every website, etc. in an effort for information to be shared and passed seamlessly. Except that doesn't work either because X platform doesn't support Y functionality and vice versa.

    GAAAH!!! :annoyed::frusty:

    Trying to get a GPX file from a website (MapMyRun) to load into Garmin Connect. Doesn't want to play with android - the app won't give me an upload option in the route creation section, it has to be done from the website. Fine, I log into website, but since I'm on a "smart" phone it keeps opening the app and forcing me to go there. It won't let me exclusively use the website because it sees the app on my phone. Would be fine if the app had ALL of the accessibility and options of the website, but it obviously doesn't (like most android apps). :frusty:

    Interestingly, I can almost get it on the Chromebook, but not quite. Something wrong with the file saved as GPX on that platform - it fails on upload in the Garmin website.

    3rd try, pulled out the dinosaur Dell with windows, and I can't figure out why it only wants to download as an html file. Absolutely refuses to allow me to change file extension. Garmin won't accept the html file type. That didn't surprise me.

    MapMyRun keeps trying to force me into signing up for an account on their site or signing on with Facebook. WTF does FB have to do with anything? We've paid for the @*#! run, just give me the GPX map file to upload!!

    To note: the organization/website we signed up for the run with redirects to the MapMyRun site for the maps. It's not a MapMyRun event, so to speak.

    It's entirely possible I could get what I need by creating an account on MapMyRun, but it's a stand on principle now! They're trying to manipulate me into doing just that. Well... I very much resent that!

    I can see the route online and recreate it myself. Just would be easier to upload the file and use these electronic gadgets we've sold our souls for. Dammit, I'm GenX, and unlike these darned kids who sign up for anything and everything all willy-nilly, I know how to read and use a map. I'll draw that shit on paper with a pen and a highlighter if I have to.:rofl:

    I love this.

    I don't have FB, and I don't link my accounts for one off product/service uses. Hell, the only reason I have an email is because I have to have one to file taxes or play my video games online. And this site requires one, too, so I guess I'll have one. Doesn't mean everybody and their dog needs to know it or send me crap.

    As I suspected... wife caved and created a mapmyrun account and they gave her the GPX file. Bastards! :rant:

    Anyway, now that I've calmed down, with the help of Satan himself (Google) I was able to figure out how to stop my phone from automatically opening apps from the web browser. Thus, I was also able to log into Garmin Connect via web browser on my phone and upload the GPX file she emailed me. From here it should be easy to transfer to the Garmin device when I get home.

    If you don't see another "old man rant" this evening, you'll know it worked. :rofl:

    What a PITA. 80's technology was so much less aggravating! Well, except for when the motormouth DJ wouldn't shut up in time and ruined the beginning of the song you were trying to record for free off the radio broadcast. :cool:

    The glory days. I've literally never heard a DJ not talk until the first verse starts. THE INTRO IS PART OF THE SONG, TOO!

    DJ's make me angry and are the second reason I no longer listen to the radio. No, I don't want to hear your inane babble about whatever irrelevant shit happened to pop up on your faceplant news feed. Shut the hell up and play the tunes.

    Ads are the first reason I don't listen to the radio and also a reason I don't have cable TV.

    I watch most of my cable TV by recording it on the PVR and then skipping the ads. Mrs Punishment won't let me drop cable.

    I would listen to less radio if my Tundra would let me plug in my iPod Classic and listen to it.

    Ain't nobody got time to be skipping ads. Completely takes me out of the immersion of watching a show or movie too. I visit the buccaneer's anchorage or a similar bazaar of film and television collections and acquire them in ad free HD to be played at my leisure.

    When someone on your right or left gets to a 4 way stop well before you do then waits until you get to the stop and have sat for 3 seconds before going. It's like they need to passively aggressively delay me just a bit for some reason.

    This happened to me this morning; heavy traffic on the 2 lane road that has right of way (north and southbound). I'm in a line of cars at the intersection needing to turn right, more cars opposite of me needing to turn left. Main line traffic has a couple of well-meaning idiots (southbound) stop to let people waiting turn in. Problem is, northbound traffic is coming fast and they're not stopping, who goes? Both (one turning left southbound, one turning right southbound) and nearly collide. I've seen it before here, people trying to be nice create confusion and accidents. You have the right of way, KEEP MOVING! It's what everyone expects you to do.

    My simple solution to most traffic problems around here is: "Get that piece of shit moving!"

    I used to be the same, but years ago I had a lemon of a caddy and I was the piece of shit that couldn't go fast. I gained perspective that humbled me a bit, and I modified my expectations. Now, it's different when it's a perfectly good vehicle with an inattentive or stupid driver. That gets the blood boiling, but the beaters get a pass from me. I've been where I only had a junker and I felt bad enough without the guy behind me getting on me about my POS.

    In this case, POS is metaphorical and applied to any vehicle being driven badly, which is usually the high end ones here. (Lots of bad drivers of Toyota cars here, too, actually.)

    Yeah, the ones that don't know what a turn signal is, how a 4 way works (very different from a 3 way ;)), or the ones that have to get out in front and then slow 5-10 MPH below the limit. Those get the swears, but the jalopy held together with duct tape, twine, and hope gets a pass.

    Well, now I'm taking this as you volunteering to teach me how to use it when I get my new truck (hopefully). I'm going to try and embrace the new cool kid stuff because google listens anyway. Might as well get some benefit from it, eh?

    You should tell him to at least come back to share his Pug pics with us. He can say whatever he wants in group PMs, too. Mods have okayed that, so people can still have their discussions.

    Sorry, it doesn’t make me feel better, it’s just dumb.

    You know what else is stupid, is grown men walking around with a backpack?

    What are you 8 years old?

    The stupid activity called Soccer also pisses me off!

    The leading cause of death of soccer fans is boredom!

    Played by a bunch of Nancy boys not tough enough to play Rugby or football wearing little girl man buns!

    That really irritates me!

    1. People that sit in the same line as me at the boat ramp, sitting in their cars and not prepping before they get to the ramp. Then clog it up while they load all their crap into the boat while holding the ramp up.
    2. People at the boat ramp in general!!
    3. When I pass someone doing 35 in a 40 on a double yellow (yes, because PA doesn't recognize passing ability on a 2 mile straight away where the posted is 40 and should be 60, no homes or side roads in sight) and the guy I passed acts like I just personally attacked him. They speed up, flash their lights like they are a cop, etc. If you drove that way in the first place, I wouldn't have passed you.
    4. School buses stopping at every 3rd house to pick up or drop off kids. They have mirrors, they can see the 20+ cars behind them, pull over and let people pass. I will not pass a school bus, contrary to #3 rant.
