Why Do Website Over complicate things?

Saturday, May 15, 2021
Why do websites over complicate things? Well I guess it’s apps too. They seem to think that it’s a good idea to add as many steps as possible to do simple tasks. I could understand, but still be highly annoyed by it, if they did it to show more ads. One particular website that I use daily to look at certain things does just that. You have to go through five or six clicks to bring up today’s workout.

Websites Think My Address Is Invalid

Monday, Nov 9, 2020
This is for a major company’s website not just some brand new company. The company begging with the letter V needed me to update my card for billing as the old one is expiring. No big deal I thought. Annoyingly my address has a half in it which every once in a while becomes problematic when trying to order something. Too many of these large cooperation' website try to verify the address is valid.

Funny To See A Page Of Browser Tweaks To Get Rid Of Web Annoyances Have Several Of Them Itself

Sunday, Aug 23, 2020
I was searching to see if there’s a method to disable the stupidly used and unnecessary fade in effect that so many pages seem to use these days. There’s nothing like waiting for the stupid fade ins when things can load pretty much instantly now. This is really noticeable with discourse based sites. Between that and the “infinite scroll” that they use it really makes things so much slower than they need to be.

Websites With Large Unhideable Headers

Friday, May 1, 2020
I saw a link to a website with an article about Corona Virus last night so I decided to read it. The websites header took up a quarter of the screen and there was no way to make it go away. It was far too much of a distraction to read the article. I hadn’t seen these type of headers in a while but they seemed to be more of a fad a few years back.

When Websites Aren't As Smart As They Think They are

Tuesday, Apr 28, 2020
I just spent entirely too much time trying to sign up for a a grocery store’s delivery or in our case pick up at the door service. They really do make that whole thing far more difficult than it has to be but I get it. They want you to go into the store and impulse buy stuff. The problem with going into stores right now is the whole inconvenience of them wanting you to follow lines and arrows and go through hopes in the name of social distancing yet other people just do what ever they want and have gathering chit chatting in the isles anyways.

I Don't Need An Animated Scroll Effect To The Bottom Of Your Page When I Click Support

Wednesday, Mar 25, 2020
I just visited Samsung’s website to find out something about my SSD. They’re website has been shit for as long as I can remember, even back when I had a note 5 phone. When I clicked support to find out just out of pure curiosity whether there are any firmware updates available for it after reading about a bug in a different brand. I don’t doubt there are firmware updates since SSDs basically are controlled by their own mini computer.

Endless Scroll Can Be Annoying

Tuesday, Feb 25, 2020
We’ve all come across the stupid endless scrolling where when you hit the bottom of the screen it loads more entries. One some of the social media sites it sort of makes sense since that sort of stuff is virtually endless but quit with the auto refresh shit so you lose your place in the middle of reading a post. The real annoying use of this that comes to mind are two types of sites.

Why Are Restaurant Website Still So Bad?

I may have posted about this before but it certainly still seams to apply to this day. Why are restaurant websites so shitty? What does a fancy animated logo add to the website and what do they gain from having a menu system that only works with java script? Then you also have to just love the stupid PDF file food menu. We do go to this place and I do like it a lot but if I hadn’t already been there the website would have turned me off

What Is It With Pictures Of Menus On Restaurants’ Websites?

Tuesday, Mar 1, 2011
Well I found yet another website for a local restaurant that is pretty much unusable to me and many others. Usually if we’re planning on going someplace I haven’t been I like to look for them online ahead of time to look at their menu if they have a website. For the place we’re going to be going I thought great I found their website. For one thing it’s slow loading and that’s just annoying.

Stupid Flash Websites

Monday, Jul 7, 2008
The other day I stumbled on a website for a pizza place in our town while searching to see if they have a website with a menu. I wanted to see if they had anything new. I always enjoy their food. What was really disappointing was to see that the whole site is just flash. except for a link to the designer’s website of course and what I see as a spammy area of text with keywords for search engine purposes.
