blah blah AOL millions Fuck Off

I decided to start a new category for fuck offs based the messages I get for the site. Here is the latest one.

why does your chatter box show most recent at the top instead of the bottom? its like reading a paper in Asia. Why follow a conversation backwards? AOL made millions the other way.



The reason I don't copy the AOL chat style is because our chatter box is in a browser and the latest chat is most important, not the chat from the near past. So when people get to the site on a smaller screen or even on a big screen but a smaller window they can still see the latest, more important info from the chat without have to scroll below the fold. Same with a mobile browser, there is no reason to keep having to scroll down to check for new data in the box.

Just because AOL made a convention like that (in a completely separate context - dedicated chat program/versus piece of web site) I see no reason to have to follow it. Should I also have it say "You get mail!" when the user gets a message and fill their inbox with loads of spam?

Secondly, I have no interest in making millions from estrip if that is what you are suggesting and I definitely don't think the chat being the other way is what is separating me from being a millionaire. Have you not noticed there is no commercial aspect to this site?

Fuck off,
Paul Visco

Holiday Potluck tonight!

Tonight's (e:strip) holiday pot luck begins at 7:00 PM at 24 Linwood Ave.

Below is a list of members who have so far confirmed and what they're bringing. Anyone who has not yet signed up is still welcome, just review the list and bring something to complement what's already being brought.

We'll also be collecting canned goods to bring to the food bank, so if you're feeling charitable bring a little something for those who are less fortunate, there will be a box near the entry way for collection.

Hope to see you all there!

(e:jim) & (e:james): cheese potatoes and a big mixed greens salad

(e:tinypliny) (& guest?): spicy potato-garbanzo beans mint-coriander tamarind jaggery street food from north-west India. and maybe raita (a tangy yoghurt dish, just in case the former thing is too spicy.)

(e:mike): mini cheescake desserts

(e:janelle)& (e:drew): lasagna

(e:metalpeter): some kind of cake or pie or ice cream

(e:carolinian): flan and thai peanut chicken linguine.

(e:brit) & gaylynne: spicy green enchiladas (and maybe dessert)

(e:terry): risotto and a cheese/cracker platter

(e:enknot) & Megan: pumpkin soup

Epad Discontinuation

I am going to drop the epad in the new version of estrip. I may offer some other substitute in the future but it doesn't look used enough to continue maintaining it. So if you have something in your epad, copy it out soon.

e:strip Holiday Pot Luck

Please sign up in the comments of this post if you're coming to the (e:strip) holiday dinner, to be held Thursday evening, December 13th (two weeks away) at 24 Linwood. It's a pot luck, so when you sign up include what you'd like to bring. If you're not handy in the kitchen, volunteer for drinks or something purchased from the store.

We'll also be collecting canned goods to bring to the food bank, so if you're feeling charitable bring a little something for those who are less fortunate, there will be a box near the entry way for collection.

Hope to see you all there!
