The Problem with modern computing

... the applications are beta, and are used by beta people.

I can go on for an eternity about the failures of Vista, the pointlessly dated vulgar argot of Chrome's error messages, and Microsoft's current, blatant disregard for UI design principles. But the thing that really annoys me these days is twitter. It's a horridly evil tool, promoting nothing but shallow thoughts, poorly organized marketing campaigns, and the juvenile ADD pop culture that is America today. On top of that, the concept is executed by some of the worst excuses of release candidate material I've ever seen -- and I've been known to release code into production after multiple sleepless nights, inebriation, and lack of quality assurance.

Delete your servers and create something useful, already.

 I'm somewhat amused that all the ad banners on the sites I frequent have turned into reminders of what I do for a living.

No more do I see "Download WoW" or "Find books on X at Amazon" ... 
Now it's "Shop New Era Caps" or "Free Shipping on Babyphat"

Two things I don't normally deal with.  Baseball caps and women's clothing.

I think the designers at JudithLeiber are like me: dreaming up the most amusingly dumb products imaginable, just to see who buys it.

No shit -- it's a $6,000 Purse made to look like Asparagus.

Moving out again

I feel horrible about leaving the dog, because I fear she'll die before I see her next.  If only I had the money, I'd live in a wonderfully large speck of land, and take her with me for the rest of her golden years.
