User Interfaces and Al Qaeda - a solution


Recommended Posts

It is my considered opinion that we could reach an accomodation with Al Qaeda if they left off killing people who offended their worldview, and instead ruthlessly pursued DESIGNERS WHO PUT 'HELPFUL' FEATURES INTO INTERFACES, LIKE ZOOMING IN AND OUT OF A DATABASE BECAUSE THE USER HAS CHOSEN TO ENTER A CERTAIN TYPE OF DATA.

Like Excel removing my lead zeros. If I didn't want them I wouldn't enter them buttholes.

Someone at health and safety told them lead was bad, so it's For Your Protection.

 

I slay me, or I would if I don't sometimes wonder if that's exactly how MS's software engineering works. Clippy may be gone, but his spirit lives on every time an MS product does something 'helpful' automatically which you absolutely, totally don't want.

Just wait until the Al Qaeda sysadmin upgrades their XP machines once support expires later this year.

My experience is little bit dated, but don't suppose to designate the cell type :/ Edited by Mor

The package I'm using insists that I can't write 3.2.1 I have to write '3.2.1, or it turns it into 3rd Feb 2001. Seriously.

 

And this is not an option you can turn off.

I had to change it to text. I didn't have much experience with it. Google just said if its designated as a number cell it removes leading or trailing zeroes, when I looked into why it would automatically alter what you enter by design, there were no answers.

Yeah, changing the cell type to "text" usually fixes/ workarounds this stuff. It's still super annoying, though.

Helps to enforce typing though.

I just read Al Qaeda on the title and immediately knew this was a Wals thread.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Pulldowns of 40 items that aren't sorted alphabetically is my pet peeve.

How insensitive it would be, if I suggest that their poor countries closed society and very little access to internet and thus porn. Might have something todo with them exploding all the time?

In most of those countries the median age is about 25, so you basically have a lot of teenagers with nothing todo. Think of those annoying clips on Youtube where they chant allah akbar, wouldn't it better if they were looking at a computer screen at that time I mean AlLaH AkBaR  :dancing:

I believe you may have a crouton wedged in your keyboard.

I always pictured Al Qaeda as running NetWare 286 2.x IPX/SPX protocol on machines running DOS.  Have I been living a lie?

joke I tried to moderate with PC, playing on the lack of internet porn, as the cause of Al Qaedas variant of sexual frustrated teenagers exploding while praising god. Edited by Mor
