Woes of a Web Designer

Bad Photos make a Bad Website
Woe No!

I make a beautiful website design for these people and what do they give me? Terrible, terrible photos! Then they call up saying that they don't like their images. What the hell do you want me to do about it? It's so depressing :(

Erect a tree in the middle of Victoria Square and don't decorate it. Doing us proud, Australia!

Google and Adobe are ruining the world

Back in August I blogged about something that really pisses me off: When applications install in to your C drive regardless of where you tell it to install.

Another thing that is similar and just as heinous is when you download a program, run the installer and then the installer downloads another installer. Again.

Ruination

If this isn't the installer, what is it? An installer for the installer? Redundant much?
I could give a flying fuck if you want me to have the latest version. Create an auto-updater for your software if you want everyone to be on the bleeding edge. I downloaded the setup file because I wanted it to be accessible from anywhere. If I knew this was just going to be a proxy for the real setup I would have just run it from my temp files after it had finished downloading. I chose to save the file so I could use it anywhere and any time. Now I need to be attached to the internet just to install your stupid browser that nobody takes seriously anyway. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, this is Google after all, not exactly king of the software realm. Unfortunately though, they aren't the only ones that do this.

Dear developers: Stop it. Just stop it. It's not clever. It's not cool. It's stupid and you're stupid for thinking it's any good. Just quit it.

Happy birthday to me.
I’m a hundred and three.
Something something I don’t like your face.
THE END.

I wasn't going to post this but it's become sort of a tradition.
