HDR Sucks – Take a Photography Class Instead

HDR does to photography what Thomas Kinkade did to painting. The majority of what you see is over-saturated, poor examples of people not knowing how to use their equipment. I mean, c’mon, grass is NOT supposed to look like that. Don’t get me wrong, there are some really good HDR images. I think knowing how…

Get Your Crap Off My PC

I find it amazing that you can uninstall stuff on a Windows machine but it doesn’t leave. As an example we’ll say…Symantec. I uninstalled the suite because I use AVG (a very nice free antivirus) and it’s still there. Worse yet, it’s now active where before it was turned off. What…the…HELL. My computer. My choice….

What happened to Ask Yahoo!?

Ever since CBS took Schoolhouse Rock off the air in the 70’s I’ve been looking for something to fill the void. Something that would help me remember the little “Cliff Claven-esque” factoids I know and add a few new (albeit useless in most regards) to my repetoire. Ask Yahoo! filled the void nicely. So nicely,…

Grossitude: Somethings Can’t Compare

I’m coining a new word: “grossitude”. Think of it as a measurement of the grossness of something. The scale is very similar to the Richter Scale and the “Hot Chick” scale. 1 – Sitting in ABC gum. 2 – Stepping on a snail. 3 – Catching your parents having sex. 4 – Finding cat poop…

MTV: We Don’t Like Mac Users

Adam Curry was right….MTV SUCKS. I got this great error message when I tried to view content on MTV.com. How can you leave out a large segment of computer users? “We’re Sorry. In order to offer a broad selection of full-length music videos on-demand and free of charge, MTV Overdrive uses Windows Digital Rights Management…

Exotic Foods on Flickr

Something I’ve noticed on Flickr: people like to take pictures of food. It’s very strange. It’s almost as if they’re saying “God, I can’t believe I’m going to eat this.” Keep that statement in mind next time you’re browsing someone’s pictures on Flickr. It’s particularly funny when you see a photo of less exotic food…

Fuck Cross Browser Compatibility

I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m so fucking tired of trying to code for browsers that render shit funky. Here’s the deal, if you don’t support standards in a non-funky kinda way we’re not going to support your browser anymore. You won’t have a market share if no one is supporting…

Fatal Exception Error

The new BSOD (Blue Screen of Death for all you non-techies) is the “Fatal Exception Error”. Oh yeah, the whole platform doesn’t crash like Win9x would, but you still have to restart or forget working in the application you were just working in because you’ll get the error again. Moving to the Mac now. I…
