1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Sounds like you are blocking.

    +1. If you're going slower than someone else on the highway, get out of the way

    People who stop in the middle of a crowded walkway to talk on their cell phone. C'mon, Skippy, the legs can move independently of the mouth.

    That I don't understand either, but then again I have no qualms with cutting by right in the middle of them. I have also seen an elegant and small older woman in downtown Seattle use a well trained Doberman Pinscher to get people to stay out of her way as well. [​IMG]

    I don't understand why this Zune my client gave to me can't read freaking unicode. 99% of my music shows up like goddamn heiroglyphics and there is no solution for the v2 zune yet. Why in god's name would you release an mp3 player, such a mainstream one, with no unicode support? It's unbelievable. I'm going to crush some microsoft employees this monday...

    Actually, for what language, Eason? I had issues initially with Greek characters but a lot of it was solved by sticking with only ID3v2.4 (iirc).

    People who jaywalk 5 ft from a crosswalk, with kid in tow (or even a baby stroller as I've seen)

    Why Fedex ground has to go thru their Memphis main hub...so a ground shipment from LA to Pasadena goes thru Memphis and takes 2-3 days for a 20 minute distance.


    It's more efficient that way.

    Are you trying to pass people on the right? When I'm in the left lane, I box people in all the time who try to do this, as it's illegal in just about every place under the sun. Mind you, I'm going at a healthy clip myself, so I suppose I'm not exactly what your example points to...

    Legal passing, either by going into the oncoming lane on a two lane road or passing in either lane on a four lane road, or on a divided highway....all legal, they always speed up!

    Someone that will stand in the cashier line for several minutes, watch their goods get wrung up, get told the total, then, as if in total surprise payment is expected, start to look for their money, CC, etc.

    It was fun driving to Canada up I-5 and I started seeing these signs once I hit Oregon. I was amazed that people actually followed this and it was nice, only to be outweighed by the fact that people switch lanes, almost cutting you off every time.

    unicode is unicode and it really is amazing that M$ is allowed to get away with something like this. All that money at their disposal and they don't even give a shit.

    I think if you really care about someone you can't help but be a little insecure since you have so much to lose.

    Insecure people who belittle others constantly is what I don't like.
