twitter changes its DOM a lot, and I only hit the web site when I've uninstalled my Twitter clients deliberately. I only do this when I want to take a break from Twitter. but sometimes I want to take a break from Twitter but occasionally need to log in quickly to DM a specific person, or something like that. since anything on the site which annoys me will encourage me to continue whatever break I'm taking, and discourage me from making exceptions, I'm going to call the annoyances of Twitter's bad UI useful for that purpose.
this is really funny. a Microsoft platforms guy writes a blog post about writing better JS and CSS. I read it because it's on HN and read his CSS/DOM shit so that I can clear out the sidebar(s) and make his shit readable. the better CSS he advocates writing does not appear in the code for his blog. just sayin.
give it up, quora, it's never going to happen. I'm not ever going to sign up or log in. you're a site which tries to be a Stack Overflow for everything but code, and where a question about side projects rates a comment BY A GUY WHO BUILT A FUCKING PLANE below a comment from one of your own engineers who supplies no evidence of having ever completed any side project successfully at all. http://www.quora.com/Productivity/How-can-I-increase-my-productivity-on-my-side-projects-at-the-end-of-the-day-when-Im-tired-from-work reminds me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bExOGt34ZIU
