  • Re: Goddamit, Gmail

    I'm going to post another screenshot of what GMail's email compose UI actually looks like, because I think it was disingenuous of you to start a discussion about a UI with a screenshot that's staged to make the UI look bad. [quote user="Lorne Kates"]And what about the buttons? If people ignore the buttons they ...

    [quote user="fire2k"]There is no reasoning. You say "your behaviour is broken", but you don't say why my behaviour is wrong.[/quote] I thought I'd stated it quite plainly, but I'll lay it out on the table for you. If you want to control the playback of YouTube videos, then you should use the video playback ...

    There's nothing quite like a TDWTF shitstorm. Always brings out the best comments,. [quote user=" penis mightier"]Up yours cunt[/quote]   Who really cares about the opinions of people whose reading comprehension doesn't even extend to an understanding of the phrase "right or wrong"

  • Re: WTF 101: Serialized array strings in MySQL DB

    I am intimately familiar with this database design antipattern. The excuses always boil down to "I am not confident about my MySQL skills so this seemed easier", and it always turns out to be worse in the long run than using databases properly. It's "Expert Beginner" territory.

  • Re: How old is your machine?

    Gah. When I came in for my first day at the place I work now, I was handed a box containing an El Cheapo desktop replacement laptop from the local PC World.

  • Re: God's GIF to programming

    [quote user="Zemm"]I noticed that an image generating function would send out http headers[/quote]  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: TRWTF. Sending HTTP headers from an image generation function makes about as much sense as if I used the rest of this post to write a letter to my grandmother. Dear Grandmother, I hope this letter ...

  • Re: Is Germany Serious?

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]I am continually amazed by the restraint the Israelis have shown in the face of overwhelming violence, aggression and terrorism. If it was me, after the first round of terrorism I would have given 48 hours notice to get the fuck out, then bombed the whole fucking shithole until it was nothing but ...
