Title: Thoughts on recent Google changes
Posted by qman on 2010-08-31 12:26:06

Frankly, I've had just about enough of this web 2.0 nonsense. Unless you live in a cave, you know that Google has been messing with its classic services, search, image search, and whatnot, with useless, performance-sapping JavaScript animations and sidebars I don't want to see. It started with Fade-in, moved on to that useless search sidebar, and now Image search is completely worthless. Where will it stop? When will they wake up and realize the whole reason people like me used Google in the first place was the simplicity? Not even YouTube was safe from the murderous web 2.0 rampage. This is the modern equivalent of animated GIFs and marquee text. Google is neither the only nor the first site to do this, but I honestly did not expect this of them. I thought they were better than this.

Please, just stop. If you are creating a website, don't load it up with heavy, non-functional code. If you are running a company, don't ask for fades and flashes and slides. If you are a user, petition the sites you visit. This trend needs to die.

Title: Site Issues
Posted by qman on 2010-02-04 23:46:58

As you might already be aware, I had some issues with the site recently. Turns out someone was abusing a mistake in the SQL code, hammering the SQL server. I've fixed the problem and the site is back online, for what it's worth.

In the process, the forums went away. I had an outdated version of phpbb3, and since it never got used even once, I decided to just kill it. If you need to contact me, just hop on IRC or send me an email.

Title: Site Updated

So, as you may have noticed, this site doesn't get updated very often. Well, today, I revamped it. No longer is it static HTML. If you're reading this, you know I've added a news section.

This site doesn't get many hits, so I figured I should actually put some content on it. More to come soon.
