General Impressions

The new format of fbi looks real nice so far – a lot cleaner.  The only thing I miss is the grayish background which helps attenuate the bright whiteness of my screen.

Cool! cool

White is an important choice because it allows most images and copy paste stuff, which most of the time have white background, to blend with the page. It’s also universal. I have seen this on quite a few computers and monitors now and it looks real sharp and is not glaring on modern monitors.

Can’t you simply turn down the brightness on your monitor in low light? My iMac does that automatically, but isn’t fairly easy?

When and if user profiles are an option, stuff like that can be personal preference.

Yeah – a bit of extortion since that is the way it used to be.  I will get used to it. Not easy to shift on my desktop screen (even worse on my TV screen) which then changes all my websites.  I am getting used to most browsers having “read mode” which has it’s own controls including white on black which is easier on the eyes to read.  I use it a lot to read books on my Kindle. yes

See, it’s stuff like you saying “a bit of an extortion” that gets you feedback like unto having your head up your ass. You either have no clue at all, or you are just an asshole. Because there is so much about this that what you just said is doing nothing but pissing on. I’m not worked up about it at all. But I don’t have any desire to interact with that kind of attitude and energy as my creative self.

incidentally, perhaps missed here, is that the tip jar is an unusual, perhaps excellent, way for a user to interact with a developer …. being pinereed here … perhaps for the first fime. newsurprise

What do you call taking a feature away & then charging to put it back on my request? I say things with tongue in cheek – most of the time with a liberal sense of humor.  Such was the way I was raised by another Gemini who was the last one whom I granted the authority to tune my attitude.  If you don’t like it then maybe use LOA to attract a more resilient sense of humor otherwise :

I guess both of you are literalists.  I applaud the work. Not the attitude adjustment. Such a thin skin! There is a term for such interaction which I will save for later.  Notice how often N threatens to excommunicate me if I don’t blow smoke .

No excommunication. You just get back what you give out. Don’t like it? Don’t give it. Get your head out of your ass!
Not like you didn’t get plenty of warning when you started sticking your head up there. You’d think the smell of that energy itself would deter you. But I guess you are used to it.

it is a fact that i have learned to live with your continual mocking and negativity … that does not mean that i like it … or that it makes me feel good afterwards.  
choy 2015-12-27 14:03:03 [item 19405#39472]
Maybe I should tell N to go fuck off then! I’ll remember that.  I am NOT politically correct with anyone nor am I likely to be without physical force being applied.  Maybe you need the smoke – IDK. I will criticize when something makes no sense to me at all. A lot of your previous writings we disagreed on. 
Get off your high horse. Has nothing to do with agreeing or disagreeing. Has to do with the way you treat people and how you attack things to get reactions and how you try and provoke people into playing RWG games with you because it’s the only way you feel like you are in control. Once you start that shit, there is no going back for hours. You’re a lost case to the world.

Maybe I should tell N to go fuck off then! I’ll remember that.  I am NOT politically correct with anyone nor am I likely to be without physical force being applied.  Maybe you need the smoke – IDK. I will criticize when something makes no sense to me at all. A lot of your previous writings we disagreed on.

i never have any coplaint with disagreeing.   i have a problem with the substance-less way you do it.   i have a complaint with you acting as if something was about me, or about yourself, when that was not what was being said.   if you have a substantive response to a thought, it shoud not break any of the fallacies .

I was hoping after this change is complete to resume some semblance of normalcy in the living stream at fbi. At that time I will see what I can do to avoid the past & support or ignore your pronouncements. Show me the same courtesy & maybe things will get better for at least Seth & Mark.thumbs up
When you remove your head from your ass, not just blow flowers out your mouth, you energy hasn’t changed one wit, I will treat you as I always do when you are head up person. Until then, reap what you sew.

incidentaly … and now i am talking as the wizzard of fastblogit … as we go into another phase of reaching out to the world … we really do not want to turn peoplle off with a lot of negativity here.  Really we do not.   In the past people have come here, perhaps to interact, and have gotten turned off by that kind of energy.  I am pleading with you Mark, … we need to make a higher energy public impression.

I do know the difference. Show the way by demonstrating wonderful clarity & brilliant prose as well as ideas which go beyond! A brilliant idea of what you want out of it – like a vision – would be helpful. Some don’t like visions, though, so maybe leave some breadcrumbs as clues so I can have somewhat of a differentiator between fbi & G+ or Facebook or ….. 
well that is happening on group niche … and the far fectched parts on group ai smug … and incidentally those are positive think spaces … do have fun and contribute.  and there is even places for common logic like thinking … brought up to modern times, of course.
