Just let it go...

by Matt 14. January 2007 17:25

You might find it hard to believe, but I've just found a good, intelligent comment on Slashdot. Struck a nerve, and made me smile. Computer-y type people do have a tendency to get religious about things, and bear grudges, and sometimes it's hard to admit it when we're wrong.

Now let's imagine email had never been invented, and we just came up with the idea. How would we design an email system? I think we'd think it obvious that we have to make it at least as capable as regular mail, and would probably come up with an HTML body plus attachments as the format (for portability, as opposed to word processor formats). I think there is zero chance we'd say "wait a minute...we'd better make this plain text only, because 25 years ago, many computers did not have graphical displays".

Common sense is a wonderful design tool.

I wonder if he cheated on her? I remember he cheated on his previous wife with JLO so it wouldn’t be surprising.

Well good for you! I have a lot but one I just thought of was when you lick a crease of paper so that it'll rip in a straight line and it actually tears in a frayed straight line rather than rips awkwardly. I love that bleachy taste and that bleachy satisfaction.

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Tensai grabs the mic and wants Fandango out "NOW!" Fandango's music hits and he and his... dance partner? ...make their way out from the back. In order for you to enjoy Angry Birds, the game creators made it available on different mediums. ISwap faces - Wish to find out how your face would look on the body of a buddy?
