Funny how those things, like history, repeat themselves so much.
But Tumblr is my soundboard. It speaks my thoughts. If I’ve nowhere to express myself, how will the Internet caress me and long for my delicious brain?
My paper journal is not like Tumblr. It doesn’t speak to me. It doesn’t tell me that I’m smart. That’s why I hate it (though it actually has the ability to comment on your own posts).
Sarcasm and joking aside, it’s been a long day for me. Normally I skip replying to things like that, but when you have a long day of work and spend 3 times the amount of time driving home due to College World Series clogging the interstate, it can kind of ride on your mood.
Americans will tolerate most anything as long as it doesn’t hold up traffic.
I SECOND THIS.
HEY ALL HARD DRIVE COMPANIES
(X-F) space units IS NOT X space units.
X being advertised size, F being formatting
honestly this pisses me off all the time
“YAY 160GB HARD DRIVE”
“…WHERE DID 8GB GO”
TL;DR: I third this
The size given, by metric terms, is technically correct.
An 8GB iPod has 8,000,000,000 bytes. The problem is the prefix. Since items in PCs are measured in multiples of 1024 (binary prefix), your numbers will vary.
8,000,000,000 bytes / 1024 bytes per KB / 1024KB per MB / 1024MB per GB = 7.45GB
They’re trying to switch things over to a new set of terms for the 1024 variants, such as the kibibyte, mibibyte, and gibibyte. They have some information about that here.
It’s not bad. Actually, I hardly noticed a difference. Messages aren’t on the front page, sure, but those were messages that associated with your first blog you made, which is essentially your default. This update modulates them in a way, leaving them separate. Even so, those with email notifications still get a message when they get an update.
What they need to do is make something more like iGoogle. http://www.google.com/ig - Always have the Dashboard as a part of it, but also allow the user to add Tumblr’s version of “Gadgets”, be it message notifiers or what not. Looking back at that suggestion, it may seem overly complex for a system that has very few options to begin with on its dashboard.
Comments also need to be fixed. Everyone I know cannot stress that enough. Being able to reply to your own posts reduces the need for new blog posts, which could in turn reduce the overhead on Tumblr’s infrastructure.
