Boo. Eff. Enn. Hoo!

Are you seriously that OCD that you absolutely have to race to your dryer the second it turns off to fold your clothes? Is your time that god awfully important and precious that you can't spare a couple of extra minutes doing laundry like people have done for at least a generation? If they're wrinkled, turn it back on for 5'ish minutes!

I'm good friends with a neurosurgeon who also does extensive cancer research. His time is VERY valuable. You know what? He's completely fine using a traditional dryer with a timer. Why? Because it's f'ing laundry!!!

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Knowing financial companies, this would most likely be a Java heavy widget that breaks every time Oracle sneezes.

As it is, people are too lazy to think ahead and call their CC to let them know about their travel plans (a 2 minute phone call from personal experience). Do you honestly think those same people will pry their heads out of their asses long enough to go to a website?

Meantime every ass-hat website is adding more and more bloatware (advertisements) which makes websites feel SLOWER than dial up.

Has anyone truthfully tried to use dial up recently? It's awful. Websites have gotten so bloated that you need broadband just to have a functional web browsing experience.

Almost anything derogatory you could say about today's software design would be accurate. -- K.E. Iverson
