I logged in to WordPress today and things looked different. My little dysfunctional way of getting to the new post screen was gone and the font sizes were different. And I don’t know why. I understand changing things that don’t work. I understand adding stuff. But why oh why do people change things to change them?
Like IE moving the favorites list from the left side of the screen to the right. Why???
I know there’s probably some reason somewhere for why people do things like that. But, having been in the room every once in a while when a system change was being discussed, sometimes it’s just because whatever picky little &^$^ that’s in charge thinks it would look better the other way. NO. Don’t do that.
I am amazingly sensitive to the aesthetics of things. I get used to a certain layout, appearance, etc. and then someone changes it and it annoys me. Like having a hair stuck on my shirt that keeps brushing against my skin that I can’t seem to locate. That kind of annoying.
Anyway. I needed to rant today and I just can’t bring myself to address what I really want to rant about. So, you got this one instead.
On a lighter note…I love to see the search terms that sometimes bring people to my blog. They generally have nothing to do with what I blog about and they make me wonder if the person was just really dedicated in clicking through to potential hits or if there’s a dearth of relevant web content out there on topics you’d think would be covered in fairly complete detail. Maybe someday if I get bored I’ll do a web links post to help those poor suckers out.
Not today, though. Today is see The Hobbit day.
I have the same issue with the recent changes to Yahoo.
They have set the default line spacing wider than it was before and set everything to a larger font; some frames can be reset but others cannot so I have a choice between some frames no longer fitting on the screen or all of them not fitting.
Worse they have changed the accuracy of filters so none of the ones I created worked.
I view myself as fortunate that this is the thing about which I wished to rant.
Agreed. We’re both very fortunate in that respect.
