ATTN: Browser developers.

I’m pissed off at every browser developer out there. I’m talking to you ie, firefox, opera, safari, konqueror, galeon, lynx, and links.

Why?! Well you’re all a bunch of jerks. Why? Well I’ve been working on an upload progress bar. Yup something simple, something really simple, or so you would think.

For those of you who don’t know anything about uploads on a web page, they look a little like this:


<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="POST">
<input type="file" name="somefile">
<input type="submit" value="Send File" />
</form>

That basically tells your browser, hey send this file when visitor presses submit.

What bothers me is I’ve spent the last 10 hours of my life working on something that isn’t going to work on all browsers, and should have been implemented in the browser to begin with.

To get your browser to show those upload progress bars on web pages, is a hideous hack.

Senate Bill Could Restrict Political Commentary | TechFreep Web

This is just plain unconstitutional, and if it passes, America is no longer America.

Baby held in locked room at airport dies – The Honolulu Advertiser

Baby held in locked room at airport dies – The Honolulu Advertiser

You know there are many “reasons” to have increased airport security.   In the end this is the sort of thing that happens.  People who have time dependent life or death situations are dying.

Honestly, we need to stop harassing innocents in the name of security.

More likely than not nobody is going to get in trouble for this.  Because like the SS Storm Troupers they were just doing their job.

Pay too much and you could raise the alarm

Pay too much and you could raise the alarm
This is just insane. Apparently now you can be considered a terrorist if you pay too much on your credit card bill.

This sucks because we were planning on playing a big amount off on one of our debts when we get a refund this next year.

When is paying off a debt going to make you a terrorist? I would think if you were funding a terrorist operation you would pay cash.

I guess being responsible and paying your bills off isn’t “American.”

Next thing you know if you buy gold you’re going to be considered a terrorist, and not someone who is just trying to get prepared for the future in the event all your assets are frozen because you “might” be a terrorist.

We shouldn’t be under such scrutiny.  Paying a bill off is so freaking harmless.  I’m not scared of Terrorists.  I’m more scared of the government looking for terrorists

I sorta think this is insane … couldn’t you have taken 10 billion from the military and given it to our schools?  No wonder Americans are considered so stupid, probably because we are.  Grated I sorta think school is there to teach you what to think, and not how to think.

Portrait of a miserable person: It’s Like Taking Candy From a Multi-Billion Dollar Corporation · Violent Acres – response

Tag: Things That Get Me Maderm @ 12:08 am

This person is an idiot. Reading the story makes me wonder what kind of a person they are. It’s clear that they are confused with the amount of money in their bank account, and their annual income defines their value as a person, and not their actions as human beings.

This person is trash, complete and utter trash. They may live in a nice neighbourhood, drive a nice car, they might even belong to a country club, but as a human being they fail miserably, and have no value.

It’s clear that while they make enough money, and only go to high class stores they are miserable. So miserable that they want to spread their misery. I hope I never make so much money I look down on people like that.

I would have left a comment, however it looks like this is the only way I can do so.

Go ahead read the story, and see if you don’t agree that she is a miserable human.

Chantex – Stop Smoking Cessation Pill Gives Smokers Hope Again on Squidoo

Quitting smoking isn’t about “being healthy” it’s all about getting you hooked on Big Pharma drugs.
