As my previous function at the office has slowed drastically, and the promises of more work have fallen through, i have realised that i best get some more work for myself. I am funded until the end of the year, but if i cannot justify my existence, they'll find somewhere else for that cash.
So, two projects in the group i'm in group use
Some quick notices on my part showed me that MS's push for integration made a system that has no specific purpose. First make a project, then choose the language. Maybe i'll like it, but the idea makes me queasy.
Then there's those floaty buttons on the toolbar. Why haven't they gotten over that insanity yet? Buttonwise, Windows has gone from squarish and clunky, to rounded edges, to small, to floaty. I liked the rounded edges one alot. They looked real. They had shadows to imply a third dimension, and were intuitive. Now, it looks more like well done graffiti on a small toolbar. Hmm... I guess that's where IE started. Whenever i have the chance i change it back, but i see no option here. Maybe i'll just remove all toolbars instead of looking at it. Yeah, IE is like that too, but for some reason i don't think it is as bad.
The help looks really confusing. The windows popping up all over the place. On the upper left side, and the bottom middle for results. The VB3 IE was nearly best. The basics fit on one floppy, and had a minimal IDE unless i asked for more.
Oh well, i guess i have no choice. As long as the functionality is there, i'll have to be happy with that.
