Journal: When Did 'Beta' Become A Dirty Word On /. ? 5

Journal by MonTemplar

Just spotted that people are stuffing comments into various stories here for the sole purpose of complaining about the /. Beta.

Maybe it's because I only occasionally visit here, but are people really that hung up on the current design?

Hell, I can remember when /. didn't even bother with any testing, period, just shoved changes straight onto the production servers. Fun times. (Not)

Having looked at the Beta, it seems to me a damn sight cleaner that some news sites I can think of*. Ok, the comment view controls could use some refining, but that's the whole point of beta-testing, right?

(*I still have nightmares about pre-2000s ZDNet. Makes the current design look almost pleasant by comparison.)

Journal: THE END 8

Journal by MonTemplar

Although I stopped posting stuff here ages ago, I've had the My Amigos feed in Google Reader, and have occasionally wandered in to have a look.

But now I've decided to cut my ties here permanently. So as soon as I've posted this, I'm unsubscribing My Amigos. I've already updated my User Info with how to contact me.

To those few of you who still post here, thanks for the fun times. It's nothing personal, I just need to cut down the amount of time I spend on social networks generally.

-MT. signing off.

Journal: MT has left the building... 3

In view of the fact that I hardly come here any more, plus the fact that TPTB here seem intent on fscking up the UI even further :| I've decided to call it a day here.

You can follow my antics over at deviantART or Multiply (sorry, Jorg), or add me on Facebook.

Alternatively, you music lovers can check me on Last.fm, whilst most of my linkage is over on StumbleUpon.

It was fun back in the day, when I had more time to spare, but now... *shrug*

Au revoir!

Journal: [Danny Says] Danny's Fool Proof Excuse 10

Journal by ellem

Recently the family was at a hotel. I asked Danny to get me my shoes his reply was, "No. I can't. I'm naked." He was, in fact, naked at that point.

Several days later I asked him to do something:

Me: Danny, beer me!

Danny: No, I can't. I'm naked.

Me: (looking at him) No you aren't. You're totally wearing clothes.

Danny: Not anymore.

And then Danny was naked. In my living room. Naked as the day he was untimely ripp'd from mother's womb.

***

No, I can't. I'm naked.

***

You have to admit it's a pretty good excuse.

So. I was really bored of seeing that other topic. So I started this one. It's not really a topic. It's place holder.
