My Day at Work



A Pet Peeve

Or two.

I just need to get these off my chest because they’re pretty annoying and it really sucks when I want to read someone’s blog but:

1. To everyone who has a song/Quran set to automatic play on their blog. Seriously, this isn’t myspace. Yes, maybe its Quran, but when my hub has the sound set to blast on the computer, I end up with a heart attack and I wake everyone up. Seriously, Zuzu jumped twice as high as I did and she was sleeping next to me. Hubby woke up, snorted, and asked “fih eh?” thinking the end of the world was coming. Have songs as you wish, but please don’t put them on automatic play, it just means I’m less likely to check out your blog.

2. To everyone who has moving animations on their blog. I’m talking about little weemees or whatever you call them that pace back and forth in their little box, or the flying butterflies, or whathaveyou. Not everyone has huge supercomputers that download megabits at lightening speeds and are unaffected by the overload of moving icons that you just love and feel express who you are. Now, this one doesn’t annoy me as much as the automatic play songs do, it just makes me sad because the internet sucks here in Egypt and if you have a lot of info it will take me +days to open your site. This equals less traffic to your blog. I also had the same problem when using company computers back in the states so its not just being in Egypt. Remember less is more and if it takes forever to open your page then a lot of potential readers are being discouraged and giving up.

3. If you have a blog that asks me to type in some gobblygook verification code in order to post a comment- that shiz is wack, and 9 times out of 10 I will just not comment then because I hate those things. I understand it cuts down on spam, but if you’re having that much spam that you need it you should consider moving to wordpress. They automatically check for spam and kick it off. Its easy as pie.

So please, have some consideration for people who would like to read and/or comment on your blog. You’ve got worthy things to say that I would like to read and maybe comment on. It would make this blogosphere a better place.

Also a note to Brujita’s Cloud, I’d like to read your blog? You’re invite only and I don’t have an invite. *sadface*

Thanks for listening, I hope I didn’t piss anyone off.

Julius Caesar Just Spammed Me

Is anyone else getting spammed with quotes from famous dead men? They’re all from some sort of survival gear website and kudos to them for making me, for a second, want to approve them just because they’re super cool quotes.

Some examples:

Beware the leader who bangs the drum of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor. For patriotism is indeed a double- edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and patriotism, will offer up all of their rights to the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Julius Caesar.JuliusCaesarJulius Caesar

Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge… / Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice / Cry ‘havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war…WilliamShakespeareWilliam Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, III:1

Progress doesn’t come from early risers, progress is madeby lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.
