Opening Links To New Windows: Annoying or A-OK?

26 06 2007

I found the comments on ProBlogger – whether to have links on your post open to a new window or not – surprising. I have all of my links open to a new window since Firefox opens them on a new tab – I’ve set up the preferences on Firefox that way. Besides, when I browse I don’t like opening links to the same window as it doesn’t let me go back and forth, especially when I’ writing about, I don’t know, something just like this post.

Some of the comments mentioned middle-clicking. What the hell is that?

What’s your take on this? What do you like opening links to:

A. Same window?

B. New Window?

C. New Tab?

While I’m at it, your preferred browser is:

1: Internet Explorer

2. Firefox

3. Safari

4. Opera

5. Another

You can leave your comment with just the letters and numbers. For me, it’s C2. Of course, it’s totally up to you if you wish to talk about why or why don’t you prefer a certain answer above.

Alive in Joburg

23 06 2007

Back in March I’d found and added the short Alive in Joburg on my Emonome Pod. I just thought it was very well done and thought nothing else of it. I had no idea the director Neill Blomkamp is directing the upcoming feature, HALO.

Here’s the short again.

I Should Be Ashamed of Myself

23 06 2007

My blog isn’t a big deal…yet. I’m still building up. So what in the world possessed me to make people register before they leave a comment. How big of a dumbass does one have to be to not have noticed that all this time? Apparently, big enough to be me.

Some of you have been kind enough to point out the error of my ways and asked me to allow comments from people who don’t feel like registering. Thank you for pointing it out; I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Oh so stupid one (I) can be. I’m sure a lot of you thought of me as a condescending prick, which I am somewhat. Want to know what’s even funnier (in a sad sort of way)? I couldn’t find out where to turn off the option on the blog. Ay ay.

Sorry, folks, I didn’t know. Apologize. Here I was worried why people won’t leave a comment while I was the one fucking up.

Please, please come back and tell me how I should be ashamed of myself. It will make me feel better.

French: baiser

German (three ways, huh): 1. ‚ficken‘, ‚vögeln‘   2. ‚Fick‘ m   3. ficken

French: fuck that! – j’en ai rien à foutre!

German (looking forward to it): fuck you! a) du Scheißkerl!,  get fucked! –  b) leck mich am Arsch!

Spanish: fuck him! – ¡que se joda!
