May 17, 2005
To whoever it was that blocked me into my space in the sports centre car park this evening (and who consequently got a well deserved clamping by Security), i'd just like to say thanks very much for inconveniencing me and my family for the evening. I had to get my dad to drive down to the uni to pick me up and then drive me BACK there again after you'd gone so I could reclaim my car.
You parked on a yellow gridded area (which indicates no parking funnily enough) – as if that wasn't bad enough the upper floors on the multistory car park right next to the sports hall looked deserted – and the parking is free in there after 4pm! You were off to play an hour of sport so surely another 30 seconds of walking wasn't going to be the end of the world was it? And worst of all, there was absolutely no way I could get my car out of the 'gap' you left me.. what the hell were you thinking?!
Next time use your loaf. It'll save you £35.
Why oh why Microsoft can you not code a good, working browser. All that money.. all those resources.. the potential to make the best software in the world, and instead you inflict upon us a substandard broken product.
Allow me to explain myself. I've never really managed to work out web design and coding.. I am pretty handy at general techie type stuff, but coding and such have always been a bit of a problem for me. But recently in my job i've been introduced to Dreamweaver and have been adding content to the current and the forthcoming website. My current task is creating a little set of tabbed pages which will contain contact details for different sections of the academy.
This is where i've come to learn how badly Internet Explorer sucks. The tables that I make preview fine in Dreamweaver. The tables that I make render exactly as I expect in Firefox. The tables that I make render NOTHING LIKE WHAT I WANT THEM TO RENDER LIKE in Internet Explorer. I truely sympathise with guys like eLab – a site as big and complex as Warwick Blogs for example must be an absolute mind bender to get working right on the different browsers out there!
Damn you Microsoft.. the day of my switching to an Apple Mac is approaching rapidly! Grrrr…..
