But only with your help! Please donate and spread the link around. Every little bit helps. We’re gonna have a great time on the deck of the SS Tittyhawk and we’re almost there.

Like many “upgrades” that prioritize making things easier, some bells and whistles seem to have disappeared. For instance, both the “terrain” and “satellite” maps have gone missing, replaced by the new Earth view (a shame for hikers and bikers, since “terrain” gave a much better sense of elevation). - Google conquers cartography again with faster, cleaner, smarter Maps | Digital Trends
Pathetic. They tried to go white on black, but didn’t even change all the pages. They removed the “sets sidebar” from the main page and didn’t even bother to code the three different views from the old flickr. Large photos, Medium Photos, Small Photos, with or without sidebar. Those were the view settings of the old flickr. But the new flickr, apparently done by one man on a deadline has only one view. It doesn’t even have a link to Collections and when you do find the collections page through one of the old links it clearly has the old design.
Much like the way Windows 8 pathetically calls home to the old windows interface, the new flickr says more about flickr’s laziness and their inability to commit to a completely new design as well as their foolhardy abandonment of flickr’s past and usable features.
They have gutted the corpse and left her for dead. For a long time they left Flickr alone and many thought this was a mistake. Now we see it was better to let her starve alone in the woods than to be transformed into this.
I was kind of in a mental fog, and it had nothing to do with the booze. My mind wasn’t right. I wasn’t focused. I went into a deep, deep depression after 9/11. 9/11 just knocked the wind out of me, and I don’t know even now if I’ve recovered from it. It really, really hurt that man could do that to man. - Billy Joel on Not Working and Not Giving Up Drinking - NYTimes.com
