And now I'm on slashdot. Again. For the third time in almost as many months. The comments section is what I dread the most. They're obnoxious.

New Comic: Strategery

You see it in message boards, blogs, craig’s list, Nerve personals – just about anywhere on the Internet that’s co-ed. Girls looking for LTR (that’s long-term relationship), and guy’s offering up “no strings attached” oral.

It’s like a dog selling a cat a bone on the merits of the fine gnawing experience. It just doesn’t have any appeal to the target.

MySQL... Will It Compile?

gcc -DDEFAULT_CHARSET_HOME=\"/usr/local/mysql-64-gcc\" 
-I.-I.. -I./../include -I../include -I./.. -I.. -I.. -O3
-DDBUG_OFF -m64 -mcpu=ultrasparc -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
-DHAVE_RWLOCK_T -c bmove.c -MT bmove.lo -MD -MP -MF
.deps/bmove.TPlo -o bmove.o >/dev/null 2>&1

Hrm... will it successfully compile for 64-bit?

1997 called, they want their web design back
2004-01-10 00:17:33 ET

You know what I hate? Pretentious web page designers. Especially pretentious web page designers that are awful at web page design. One thing I especially hate is when someone puts on the page "best viewed at x resolution".

I just went to a website, a pretty terrible one at that, where the designer went through the trouble to write the javascript or whatever to detect my monitor resolution, and had the nerve to say "I see you're running at 1280x1024, please set your resolution to 1024x768 to view this site at it's optimal setting".

Now, I wouldn't change my monitor resolution just any web page. I probably wouldn't change it for any web page. No single page is worth it to me to screw up how my icons are laid out, to change my entire purpose and negate all the thought I put into making my system optimal to do what I want to do with it, because someone isn't skilled enough to make a page viewable by all, or is so pretentious as to think their page deserves such careful consideration.

Especially not for a terrible web page.

Here's a funny Penny Arcade comic on a simliar vien.
