My space, your space (2)

  • Not so good is that every other profile page has music embedded and initially I couldn’t seem to convince the myspace account settings that I really don’t want those to automatically play. Ugh!
  • Not so good is that the profile pages are a throw-back to webpages of 5-10 years ago, but with double the (browser lagging) content.
  • Good is that MySpace appears to make an effort to prevent spamming. I can’t write in (group) forums yet for instance, because my account is less than a week old.
  • Not so good (from my perspective) is that it encourages ugly hacks to get customized CSS in place, instead of just giving in and providing a single look’n’feel entry for the experts to play with. What happens now is that you can enter HTML/DHTML/CSS bits in other fields and users dump it there so it’s loaded halfway the page instead of at the beginning. Ugh.
  • Good is that MySpace has a private profile option for the younger kids.

I’m currently vaguely looking around MySpace; You know, where all the cool kids hang out these days, or something. 😉

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone reading here is out there too and wouldn’t mind extending their network some more?

Foolishness (2)

Here are some more:

  • Wireless Extension Cords at ThinkGeek.
  • The introduction of a new TLD for Fryslân, a province in the Netherlands that actually has its own (official) language. Unfortunately I can’t see the entire joke because (I’m guessing) only customers of the participating Dutch ISPs can currently see the otherwise non-existent .fy TLD.
  • MS blogger Robert Scoble would be going to Google.
  • Wikipedia (of course) has a list of this year’s hoaxes.
  • Similarly, Wired has a top 10 of internet hoaxes/spoofs over the years, courtesy of Drew Curtis of Fark.com fame.

Have fun reading through all that. 🙂
