    • It's not the programmers in charge of the features...

       

      Also, remember the programmers often have fast high end computers, so they don't really evaluate program performance on older hardware.

       

      The feature creep is driven by trying to make more money by adding more features in software, both the o/s and the applications programs.

       

      You want a bare bones O/S? go Linux.... oh, you want a whole lot of cool software? Then you are stuck with Windoze...

      John, yea, well that was in the days before bloatware, GUI interfaces, sound effects, 3D effects and all the other fluff we don't really need, but the programmers think is just too cool to not have.

       I was talking with the Xerox help desk, and the help desk guy posed the idea that if we could get Windows 98 to run on the latest hardware, it would probably be so freaking fast that it would just boggle our minds.

      Which now has me wondering whether the compulsion for bloatware has any effect of driving hardware developers toward more speed.
      Which then encourages the bloatware developers ...

      Bingo. But if the programmers could only take a step back, and do a bare bones version of an OS, it could be super fast. And without all the conflicting fluff, it might even be rather stable.

    • You have discovered the secret!

       

      "feature creep" requires more cpu, ram, hard disk, video speed...

      ....a million pixels. 

       

         It still astonishes me that we sent men to the moon and safely returned them to earth with a 2K computer on board the space ship.

    • The only PC i have is a home laptop I've been having problems with, so I was hoping to do it directly from phone. Pain anyway you look at it as i still have to resize any phone pics before going into the album as the smallest size image I still like a million pixels.

      I actually came here to post an update.  I'm pulling out a bunch of non-essential features that seem to be causing slowness issues on various parts of the site. 

      Facebook and other cross posting related social media sites ?

       

      Nothing against it other than how "Embeded" they become crossing into posts

      I'll be grateful if we can find a way to load pics to my album from my phone.

      Perhaps this is a project for the internet experts Vic?

       

       

      I would like to nominate someone in the Ontario region within a 50 mile radii (not diameter) since that is a hub for internet travel on the east coast .

       

       

       

      Perhaps when the solution is found they can hopefully upload them to Greg's website (with permission) so the instructions will stand and not be molested.

    • "Benevolent Dictator" is a registered trademark? Whoda thunk?

    • You want a date? Heck they cannot even figure out the name:

       

       

      Note the words on the right don't match the logo...  of course the word "large" is in some places and not in others all over the site... maybe after this year the LS part will be completely gone....

       

      Anyway we will be here, thanks to our BD...
