MySpace Is Still Stupid, But You’re Just Insane!

May 11, 2006

Touched on this once before, no?

Paid my daily visit to One and Four just a bit ago. Saw there the same thing I saw a few minutes earlier in my e-mail. This. MySpace, the stupid yet innocent megasite for people to meet and interact with other people (as much as you really can via the written word on a screen anyway), is considered such a danger to youth by almost exclusively folks who never use the Internet let alone that website that politicians are planning on making a federal law that schools and libraries prohibit anyone under 18 from accessing the site on their computers.

Yeah, I’m a Bitch

May 9, 2006

So I came across this cutesy crap in my MySpace bulletin list today. Figured it was worth a mention over here. Basically, it’s like “if you’re a guy, would you do this with a girl?” or “if you’re a girl, does this all sound nice?”. Something like that. Well, I’m a girl! May as well answer it.

What’s the Point?

March 24, 2006

Why do so many blogs have “Recent Posts” on their sidebars? It’s redundant. In like every case, every one of the posts in that list is right there on the blog mainpage still. Just uses up sidebar space that could be better used for something else. Want to know recent posts? Oh, I don’t know. Scroll down perhaps? 🙄

What? That’s it. If you wanted a longer rant, tough shit, dumbass.

I’m Not Deprecated! You’re Deprecated!

February 21, 2006

It hit me just right. I finally discovered I can set the target attribute for the Friends of the Fortress links so they open in a new window. Quite glad I could do so without diving into the PHP code, which undoubtedly would not turn out well. Then I saw it. On the WordPress admin page for adding a link, when I finally spotted the Target radio buttons at the very bottom, I saw the following:

(Note that the target attribute is illegal in XHTML 1.1 and 1.0 Strict.)

Reread that a few times and let it sink in.

MySpace Is Stupid, But Give It a Break!

February 6, 2006

MySpace is stupid. Everyone knows it. It’s buggy, you get too many stupid bulletins from people who don’t realize that their stupid bulletins are annoying, too much whining, too much spamming, and I’m so sick of people putting so much shit in their profiles that it takes forever for it to load. Why the hell do people put music videos up? Who the hell actually sits and watches them? And why have music playing at all? What I really hate are the ones with music playing but they don’t provide any means of turning it the hell off! Look, when I’m at my computer, chances are I’ve got my Winamp playing. In fact, I’ve got it playing right now. “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen. Good song! But, yeah, so I’m already listening to my own music. I don’t want to hear yours.

Quick! I Gotta Pick a Major!

January 16, 2006

Hmmm. I never would have guessed. 😉

You scored as Biology. You should be a Biology major! You are passionate about the sciences, and you enjoy studying cell growth and evolutionary concepts which enable living organisms to survive. Pursue that!





























Ah, well, now that that’s done, I’ll just pull out my trusty college transcripts and see how they match up. Well, what do you know! Biology major and chemistry minor!

Tiny Blogs

January 1, 2006

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time for a special Sure, Why Not? session of….


Today’s recipient of this message of suckiness are people who have, create, or are somehow or another involved in those tiny blogs you see sometimes. Blogs in general have a wide, vast range of stupid shit worth bitching about, and I kind of hate to kick off the Fortress’s YOU SUCK sessions with something so common, but I don’t really care right now. Anyway, on with it.
