i’ve been doing some beta testing of ma.gnolia lately.
you know. I really wanted to like it, but somehow I don’t.
its very much like del.icio.us, in that its a ‘social bookmarking’ site.
its 6.10pm and I just hit ‘save’ on Visio after a long and productive day.
I’m *sure* I hit save earlier in the day. And, anyway, isn’t there supposed to be autosave and document recovery?
(you know where i’m heading here, don’t you)
so, as soon as I hit ‘save’, Visio informs me that its had an error and needs to close.
Fair enough, I think, we all have our moments. I wondered how much it would not be able to save and how much I’d have to redo.
I never thought that I’d end up losing the ENTIRE DAY’S WORK.
but yes. that appears to be the case.
we are not amused.
Here’s some of the pages I’ve tagged on Del.icio.us today.
eh. I’ve had this thought a few times now so I thought I’d scrawl it down quickly.
I love that Gmail now has a delete button (rather than being obscurely positioned as an option in a dropdown!)
but in the time that i’ve been using Gmail I’ve become so accustomed to using that dropdown, that I still go there first to delete, even though now, I would argue, the delete button is in the correct (intuitive?!) position.
Its amazing how quickly habits form, how easily I’ve ‘learned’ this bizarre placement, how long its taken me to ‘unlearn’ this behaviour (ok, its been about a week or so… still, I’m using it frequently, every day).
there’s something in that for all of us.
