Andrew Pollack's Blog

Should I quit pretending that I'm going to have time to update this blog site and switch to Domino Blog?

Ok, you tell me. I know some of you really don't like the UI on this blog design. I'm tired of it too -- but the idea of using some canned software doesn't thrill me. I've put off doing it because I have some big ideas for the site. So far, as anyone can predict, I've had no time to do anything about them.

Tell me the truth -- does this design suck so bad I should dump it as soon as possible?

One advantage to this one though -- no spam.

There are  - loading -  comments....

Dominoblog will keep your spam protection - but whilst your site is not a
"modern" design (no offense meant - I can't design UI anyway) it serves its
purpose from what I can see.

Content is easy to see - comments are easy to use - it has a clear navigator.

Maybe seeing the content of the comments together would be an improvement?

A nice compliment from a "competitor" ... and Steve is rightBy Jens on 10/25/2006 at 05:44 PM EDT
yes, it serves its purpose very well. And yes, reading the comments is the one
thing I would wish to have enhanced. But den losing the tread-structure, that
Andrew has implemented, would be a loss of information and hence readability. I
would wish to have a blogsphere or so that would have the ability to have
comments in a threaded structure.

I read your site for the content, not for the layout. Reading comments together
with a main post would be nice. You might want to let go from the beveled boxes
(I guess some css would do that trick) and beef up on the title bar?

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything. Not just killing people and breaking things, but ......

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
