One Year Later: What we love & hate
« on: July 19, 2006, 12:05:38 PM »
July 19, 2006:

After reading this humorous list of what digg users love & hate, I decided to find out what it is that the members here at Donation Coder love & hate.


:-* We love:

  • Windows Explorer
  • Process Tamer
  • Maxthon
  • autostitch
  • the Coderman site
  • the idea
  • the community
  • AutoHotkey
  • word games
  • reading these reviews where the so called "Opera fans" have to resort to insulting a user
  • Lifehacker
  • Genie Backup Manager
  • feeling vindicated
  • my webhost
  • that feature
  • articles like these
  • reading ebooks
  • this guy's sense of humor
  • their simplicity and approach to disseminating content
  • win key
  • to download and try software
  • needlessly complicated terms
  • glitter
  • how you can drag it around
  • *nix
  • trees
  • custom sounds
  • if someone would do that kind of hard work for me and write up what they think the differences are, pro and con
  • visualisation techniques
  • old games
  • computers
>:( We hate:

  • snoops
  • CSS
  • having to save the image
  • the whole concept of marketing
  • having to go to each merchant's site to track each individual purchase
  • paint
  • Linux
  • MS
  • receiving a canned response that doesn't even remotely address my problem from a company whose software I paid for
  • desktop icons
  • This Key Deluxe Edition
  • those keys
  • programs that freak out and dont offer you a way to override
  • people with neat ideas
  • when people quote stats like this
  • haiku
  • advertising
  • to admit it
  • installing the logitech drivers
  • the ribbon
  • 5 star reviews that say nothing more than "The best", "Nothing beats it"
  • to imagine what it was like before that
  • the sound of your voice
  • when I hit a web site with a loud midi background theme at 2 AM and wake up everybody in the house

This was only from the first page. :D

Very strange that Cody didn't make the love list.  :-[

Aren't we a silly bunch. We love *nix but we hate Linux. I don't know if we even know what we love or hate. :D
There's allot of stuff in that list that I'd switch around tho, that's for sure, but that's just me :)

I hate lifehacker with a passion for example, I dunno why, I get this big yuppy-alert vibe from it :P Maybe I just don't like them telling me how unorganised I am ;)

hehe, that one's funny,..

We hate:

I caught that too...

Stat scripts can be fun, for example Homokaasu's Gematriculator says donationcoder.com is 35% evil and 65% good.

Wow, who knew you could capsulate all that in one post! You know, it would be cool to take photos of cody dolls from all around the world...

 — Cody facing off against a St. Louis Cardinal
 — Cody skinny dipping with Salma Hayek (or Orlando Bloom)

July 19, 2007:

It is exactly one year later, to the day, since I originally started this thread.

I thought it would be fun to see how much things have changed since then.

New things:

:-* We love:

  • SuperCopier
  • collectorz.com's applications
  • Jesus
  • Coding in C++Builder
  • the maverick attitude in the RkUnhook help file
  • Colorado
  • lots of customization
  • FARR
  • buying... well, everything on eBay
  • pocket watches
  • criticism
  • Opera
  • to troubleshoot
  • Tuffmail
  • using WordPerfect
  • Canon scanners
  • making juice drinks
  • my student id
  • google webapps
  • Easter Islands statues
  • DC mugs
  • its content capture facilities
  • this program
  • people making bold claims without making any reference to which platform they tested it on
  • this game
  • being able to customize stuff
  • to know about other cultures, countries and people from outside my little circle
  • to point out how greedy and awful Microsoft can be
  • Editpad Pro
  • EverNote
  • that there is also "JABOD"
  • the fact that you can select options on one tab and move to another and set more without resetting the previous
  • the Bulk Rename Utility
>:( We hate:

  • draggable toolbars
  • amatuer porn
  • rebooting
  • Photoshop's UI
  • throwing anything away
  • inputting data
  • probabilities
  • Norton
  • talking on the phone
  • Apple/Mac
  • mean people
  • most typography on the web
  • being 15
  • to see them fight like that
  • proprietary shit
  • when people do that
  • that big-ass PATA cable
  • coding
  • Adobe and all their programs
  • to disagree
  • dead space on stage
  • systems
  • golf
  • .NET apps
  • to continue to rely upon it
  • having to hunt down where an application stores its various parts and pieces
  • adopey stuff
  • when the small devs get pirated
  • to create Backup
  • to travel for each category or list trying to find that station
  • to throw that money out of the window
  • to miss the discount

Things that didn't change:

:-* We still love:

  • Process Tamer
  • this idea
>:( We still hate:

  • paint
  • the idea of canned responses
  • having a desktop full of shortcuts



This is still only using the first page, just like before.

Very strange that Cody still didn't make the love list....again!  :-[

Speaking of Cody...

what i want to know is..
how long will it take before Cody has his own website?



Stat scripts can be fun, for example Homokaasu's Gematriculator says donationcoder.com is 35% evil and 65% good.
 ;D

We are now 30% evil, 70% good. We get better with age.  :D
