Woo! It's not just around Christmas apparently. We passed the most recent thousandth in the middle of the year this time. Spring, 2021, probably? The count's up at 3,152 now and counting...

Not sure why I see the need to post about numbers like this. As if the social involvement on a blog is the best indication of accomplishment and reach, or the writing itself a quality measured by number more so than wisdom and/or witticism, but regardless of the reason I do have a thing for numbers! it seems the higher they are the worthier a cause for celebration, and in this dystopian world we can use any cause we get can't we?

It is nice this place still garners a little activity too; maybe more so now than in a while now...

If you haven't ever left a comment here before why not leave one today!

I'll be back to respond in a couple months or so.

The New IMDB

I don't like it.

A while ago they had a poll asking for user feedback. I considered adding my two cents, but skimming the much more in-depth comments other users had left I was joyous to see that pretty much the entire community shared my views; that the new layout was terrible. That the two-column cast list with extra spacing and circular actor images in particular was difficult to get an overview of compared to the proper single-column one of old, and that it was the same with so much else on the page; barely a detail there that wasn't a step backward in terms of usability.

And today, low and behold, they've moved over to this new layout.

It's not better.

It's not fixed.

They didn't listen to their users at all.

It's not a huge change mind you. Apart from all the extra and highly unnecessary new spacing it still seems similar to how it's always been, but that spacing's so unnecessary. The cast list in particular is the exact same cast list I and so many others had no love for during the beta.

I respect IMDB so much less for going through with this despite the heavy critique (read: helpful feedback) they were given.

Rotten Tomatoes? Maybe it's finally time...

What's going on here hmm. I suppose I should contact them...

That Flash Thing

In regards to that Flash thing. About it being the end and all. Read this.

Basically it's not over!

If you happen to spend your days on NG you'll barely notice a difference.

If you happen to spend your days elsewhere you might want to try Ruffle or SuperNova - or just click that link above to find ways to make Flash work just like it used to. No need for extraneous plugins... just a little configuration file replacement and/or other tricks.

Here's a nice read too. Somewhat relevant but mostly nostalgic.

Lettuce make sure Flash lives on forever now.
