I spent the better part of an hour going through our PAX East pictures. I rounded up the cosplay pictures, grouped them, gave them titles, tagged them, and put a funny caption on each. Then I created a slideshow and discovered that Flickr doesn’t display any of that. It just shows pictures. At a fixed rate, moving from one image to the next whether the viewer is done or not.
There is no way to share or embed these pictures in a way that preserves the captions. I can’t even point you to a link off-site that will accomplish this. And I’m not going back into that clunky interface so I can copy & paste all my captions here.
Now I remember why I don’t use Flickr. It’s a pain to share photos (it requires at least four clicks to get the URL for a picture to share, so alt-tabbing back and forth can get to be very tedious.) Any site dedicated to sharing photos ought to be at least able to share photos as easily as YouTube share videos.
C++ is a wonderful language for making horrible code.
A game I love. It has a solid main story and a couple of really obnoxious, cringy, incoherent side-plots in it. What happened here?
Diablo III Retrospective
We were so upset by the server problems and real money auction that we overlooked just how terrible everything else is.
DM of the Rings
Both a celebration and an evisceration of tabletop roleplaying games, by twisting the Lord of the Rings films into a D&D game.
Game at the Bottom
Why spend millions on visuals that are just a distraction from the REAL game of hotbar-watching?
