Things I Hate About Facebook – Mostly Everything

February 20th, 2010 Comments off

They keep changing the layout. Now I have to be at the top of the page to see any updates? Why couldn’t those have been left at the bottom, or at the very least made the top portion a non-scrollable frame? And how come they only seem to notify me of updates if I refresh the page?

Also, why can’t I see all newsfeed updates on my iPhone app or even from the mobile version of the site? Why must I be logged in on my computer to the full site to see everything?

Why does my view always default to Top News instead of Most Recent? And why can’t I customize my Newsfeed?

Why does Facebook require every move I make to be posted to my profile? It’s no one else’s business whose status update I like or I posted a comment on. But now I have to go into my own profile and delete those once they decide to appear?

And why sometimes do I post an update and it doesn’t appear? I’m getting “page cannot be found” on my own profile right now in fact.

What a piece of shit buggy site Facebook has become. It’s getting on my last nerve. I hope something new and better comes along soon. There’s just no excuse for the crappy performance of that site.

Fucky fuck fuck fuck

December 15th, 2009 1 comment

Ok, I really don’t understand website design anymore because I don’t mess with it like I used to, but does anyone have an idea what the fuck is wrong with my blog? I can only use a few select WordPress templates. Most either give a 404 error instead of showing my index page or they will display the basic design and sidebar but put a 404 error within the part where the latest entries should appear. Seeing as how they don’t all do that, I need to know what’s different about this one I’m using compared to the others that make it work while the others do not. It’s driving me apeshit.

I was poking around last night and gave up, switching it to the one template that seems to be working, but I’d really like to be able to switch templates based on seasons/holidays. I am really aggravated and short of exporting everything, reinstalling, and then importing all my old entries, I don’t know how to fix it. And I really don’t want to do that because ultimately I don’t give a shit what this site looks like, but it would be nice to change it up once in awhile.

Where are the WordPress elves when you need them?

Not going anywhere

December 14th, 2009 2 comments

I was going back through my archives recently reading random posts here and there and realized that I’ve really neglected this blog the past two years or so. There was a time where I’d have more posts in a month than there were days and yet for this entire year I’ve only posted about 61 entries, give or take.

I’m thinking perhaps a New Years Resolution is in order – to write an entry a day. Maybe a photo a day too, although that sounds a bit ambitious for a lazy person such as myself, so maybe the entry thing should be my primary focus. I can’t help but marvel at how many things have happened which I had completely forgotten about until re-reading my own blog. This site is like a public diary, so I’m not going to let it die.

Sold

June 3rd, 2009 Comments off

While we were off work we managed to get rid of two things taking up a decent amount of space in the garage – my old damaged rims from my Jetta (which are 5 years old) and Joe’s motorcycle.

We posted both on Craigslist but the rims didn’t garner any interest so we ended up taking them to a recycling center and got some money for them.

Only five minutes after posting his motorcycle on Craigslist, Joe had a few e-mails. The person who e-mailed him first ended up buying it the next day. We almost sold it to a dealership a few months ago but their offer was far less than it was worth so I’m glad we held off on that.

It’s so nice to get to some stuff in the garage that used to require me climbing over the motorcycle. Part of me will miss it since when we were first dating I got to ride on the back of it a few times. But mostly we’re both happy to see it go. Joe hasn’t ridden it in years so it was just getting in the way. Now we have to decide if we want to fill the empty space with a deep freeze or not. I’m kinda enjoying having less stuff in our lives and I’m not sure I want to buy anything new right now unless it’s cute and furry. ;)
