Some food for thought concerning social networks.

Having obtained an invite for Google’s new social network, Google+, so far I’ve enjoyed mightily my experience with the system. But as more and more people I know have signed up to it, I’ve found myself getting more and more Circle additions (G+’s concept of a “relationship” in the network) from people that I have no fucking idea who they are. Naturally, I’ve been blocking these people left, right and center, but this has once again sparked the same question I had when Facebook started being the social network by excellence:

Why THE FUCK do people have this seemingly PATHOLOGICAL need to “add”/”friend”/whateveryouwannacallit as many people as they possibly can without giving a shit if they even know them or not?

Did some graphical/aesthetic rearrangement here.

Moved out that ugly RSS button in front of my goddamn moon and put it on the sidebar, made the entire header a clickable link to the blog homepage, and removed the Home link from the Link Dump. I think it’s a little easier to navigate and now my fucking moon is clean, the way it was supposed to be all along.

Oh, and it fully validates 100% correctly as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

I think this guy pretty much explains it better than I ever could.

People complain too much about moé anime these days and how it’s ruining the industry. You have to consider a couple of things:

1. It makes money
2. That’s what Japan wants (they aren’t called the “culture of cute” for nothing)
3. It makes money
4. The kind of dark, gloomy stuff that western markets want is usually a mediocre success over there, so they have to revert to…
5. It makes money

Any arguments should be referred to points 1, 3 and 5 above.

I thought SQLite would be the solution to all my overhead problems…

This pretty much defines my entire existence with an uncanny level of accuracy.

Somebody punch me in the face.

I’m developing this management software, and I need to get AT LEAST SIX MORE WINDOWS full of controls and capable of managing data before I can even call it a BETA release.

And I have no motivation to do it.

And I’m doing this pro-bono.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Seriously, somebody shoot me.
