So, I have been forced (with threats of rape) by Sir. Johanakin Solo Skywalker the XVIII (aka wardrox) to join this here website.
And thus, I moved my cute little cursor to the "Get started - its fast and free" link. The first thing that struck me is the lack of apostrophe. I mean, I know grammar isn't fun and should be kept at school, but you could at least make an _effort_ in a place that's supposed to advertise to new folk who maybe, just maybe, find correct grammar positively spunkerific.
I looked beyond this possibly accidental mistake and clicked the link anyway. To my confusion I was presented with a form entitled "Welcome back" that was populated with but two fields, `email' and `password'. This seemed a little strange for a registration form, but being a well-trained sheep, I did what the page asked me and filled every last field in! Submit. And wait, what's this? Something about an incorrect username? But I didn't enter a username, I was never asked to! Aha, I see the problem. A quick glance at the url and for some inexplicable reason, the "Get started" link has taken me to the login page.
Well, shame on me for having the cheek to try to "get started". Instead, as Daniel Wallace would have me do, I clicked the "Join Us" button. Ah, the sweet taste of success!
So now I come to write my first "blog", as commanded by Mr. Wardrox. These are nice looking buttons; "BBCode Help". That looks like a good first target, I've not done any forum posting for a while, so it'd be nice to make sure my link tags don't end up as "delete my account tags"... After my experience with "getting started", I'm a bit wary, you see? The vorpal cursor went clicker-clack, and... Pardon me, what's going on here? This certainly doesn't look like a BBCode help page to me... Well, OK, let's try "Upload photos"... `Changes saved.'. That's really nice, but I'd like to "upload" some "photos" now, please? No? Well, I have a feeling I know who or what the culprit is here. Could it be my browser? Well, there's only one way to test this theory.
And now, I return. Driving a shiney new, memory whore of an open source piece of shit brower. Well, at least the buttons work. But seriously, making me change browser just to blog? That's a little upsetting really. For the record, Opera is my main browser because it's _not_ a pile of bullshit and chips like all the other browsers... Well, this is a little strange to say the least, "Save Draft" is now taking me to the "Upload photos" page. OK, I'll take the hint and upload a picture, after all, a picture says a thousand words. With no chance of a grammar mistake either!
That seemed to work, although this entire blogging malarky is seeming more and more like using a coffee mug as a helmet - a pain in the arse.
Well, with that little rant complete, I can now introduce myself. I'm a young lad from the United Kingdom of Kingdomshires known almost universally as "Tubs", "Tubby" or "Tubwald the Fourth". And that's all you're getting out of me. x(
