Pricks

This is a bit late, but the ACSI published their annual report on customer satisfaction in the US and this time, its about E-Business. So like, holy crap right? And this year, they added social networking companies to the list. Since I’m a total prick when it comes to social networking, I thought I’d talk about that. Whoops, I forgot the link. Here it is. Okay I’m just joking, here it is for realz. Go check it out—I’ll wait. Cutting the crap, Facebook gets 2nd to last in the long list of competitors. Though with social networking, there’s not a lot of precedence to compare to. But if Facebook is so horribly “unsatisfying” why do 400 million people continue to use it? [source] Customers are willing to suffer through a poor experience in return for the benefits Facebook provides. This… more →

iRobot

Bleghh.. Physics is such a drag, along with websites to do, SAT crap. Then I’ve got to write crap to keep this lame website alive. Inuyasha!.. but then I’ve got to write a report on the biggest Transformers-geek in history. News to keep up with, free mousepads and trolling 11-year-old’s.

I just noticed something at the part when James Cromwell is spewing crap about how extremely complex programs have the capability to transform and evolve themselves. Here’s the exact quote: There have always been ghosts in the machine. Random segments of code, that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul. Why is it that… more →

Mustang

This is genius. Editing flames into a clip of me snapping my fingers. Anyone else think FMA’s ending was a bit underwhelming? They could have all died or something. But meh, it never happens. NHS’s website is nearing completion. Well.. not really. It’s come a long way, but there’s still a lot I haven’t done yet. While making the event creation form, I found this service called JSLint. Now, HTML and CSS have the W3 (World Wide Web Consortium) validators to make sure everything’s neat and tidy. But JavaScript isn’t so lucky. So JSLint takes your JavaScript and tells you everything that’s wrong with it. And damn, it is relentless. I thought I had good coding habits.. But in return, you get reliable, quality code. This made me laugh. Firefox had a rush release the other day. Just 3 days… more →
