How on earth does this get you 40,000,000 views?

Well I suppose everyone can relate to it.
As a matter of fact Sittin On Tha Toilet now. Not.

Haha, my old first gen AMD Phenom x4 PC loads it no problem. I load the Roku app on my TV occasionally without problems as well. When Youtube came out in 2005, before Google owned it, it was absolutely great. Sure there were other sites, but Youtube had no ads, free content, and no bloat.

I honestly don't understand the Javascript comments. Maybe we're just old. I'm 21 in two weeks. I like the cheap Nokia Windows phone so far. Not many apps, but it has the essential ones. The layout takes some getting used to but it's surprisingly fast. The battery lasts, 2days minimum with a lot of use.

You're preaching to the choir. So many websites are overloaded with "widgets" and things designed to give clueless web designers server side functionality on the client side, it's becoming a real problem. YouTube is unusable on single core PCs now if there are more than a few hundred comments. I struggle to see why comments need to be supplied by JavaScript.

I admit that I listen to a lot of Leo Laporte's podcasts, have for years. While not in it really for technical info it's interesting programming. But I dare you to visit Twit.TV with anything lower than a 4 core i7. It's so overloaded with "Web 2.0" that it takes 5 - 8 minutes to render on my old TC4200. I've since upgraded my laptop so it's not a big deal but it practically maxes out all 4 cores (i7) while it renders and the fan sure spins up.

I really can't comment on Facebook. I've only seen it a few times. But I hear you on keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts are one of the reasons (one of the many reasons) I will never stop using Blackberry.

I just hate the new YouTube altogether. It has so many problems. Even on my six-core gaming PC I have problems with it. Half the time, these newer websites where EVERYTHING is java and shockwave crap, most of the links don't work. One of the reasons I love Wikipedia. It hasn't changed, and hasn't had to change because it works so well.

People nag about Facebook changing, but once you actually see the little shortcuts they do that most normal people wouldn't think of, it makes it a lot easier to use, and you can use the keyboard more instead of relying on the mouse. After messing with Linux, I'm all for keyboard shortcuts.

Funny, I have no end of problems with Ajax based pages. Especially YouTube comments. Seems about half the time, the content arrives but the scripts do not. Or there is no indication the browser is running some JS parsing the whole page and all functions are not yet available. Or the wonderful YouTube "An error has occurred" error 75% of the time I click on Comments. Doesn't matter the computer, browser nor connection. What ever happened to just serving up HTML? And it's worse on a touch screen

It actually is, but I'm not trying to race right into the Instagram or Twitter. I had Twitter, but it was pretty stupid. At least with Facebook it doesn't send you to a new page for EVERYTHING.

That's so Web 1.0 ;) lol

I thought MySpace was making a comeback?

Then again that makes about as much sense as the industry mouthpieces who say that Facebook is on the way out.

What's a 'MySpace'? You mean Facebook?

It's looking quite good with all the nifty fading, but one thing I did notice is that the links at the top are activated by script, so search engines aren't going to be able to navigate and it's a bit confusing for the user when the cursor doesn't change into a hand.



Hi Aaron,
It's great to read your input on this.

When deciding how I would implement website navigation I knew that the route I have currently gone with would be unconventional and not as straight forward as hyperlinks for SEO. It instills a more unique and memorable user experience. Since a growing number of website these days are using Ajax for website navigation I researched into how feasible it would be to make SEO work properly on this approach. It turns out that it can be done but it just requires a little bit more work to set-up than an hyperlink based website. Google is working on creating Ajax crawlers. I believe they are/have creating/created Ajax crawlers to index Facebook comments.

Regarding the pointing finger cursor over the buttons, I have tested that the CSS to produce this cursor change works in the latest IE, Firefox, Chrome and Safari web browsers so no problems there. I haven't made all buttons produce the pointy cursor on mouse-over yet.

P.S.
I forgot to mention that SEs can actually completely crawl my website as it stands through the hyperlink based sitemap that is shown at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. This sitemap is dynamically created by a PHP script. As other parts of the website grow, the sitemap will also grow without my help.

Aaron, have you ever fixed a broken hood release cable for a gen2 RX? Mine broke this weekend and the only posts I can find on RX7 Club pertain to the gen3 and advise to go through the driver side signal. Do you know if that fix would work for the Gen2? Let me know if you have any expertise in the matter please!!



Been there, done that. You'll need to reach up through the front of the bumper and wrap your hand around the back side of the latch (the front will be blocked by plastic air diffusers, assuming they are still in place). Once you feel the mechanism, there is a lever along the bottom which if pushed towards the driver side will unlatch the hood. If you have large hands, you may need to borrow a small child or girl and instruct them on what to do. It's a bit of a pain but can be done. Most likely the cable itself has not broken, but the plastic retainer which holds it to the latch has and the cable has simply fallen out. If that is the case, you may also be able to push the cable back up into position while someone else pulls the hood release from inside the car.

hi johnny. . .how is your website?


Hi Juan,
I'm very happy with how it's coming along. I'm working on it almost every day. I'm developing it locally but I will synchronize it with the main server which is connected to the WWW when bugs are sorted out and major features are added. I can't wait to have visitors other than bots come to my website.

Here is the link again:
http://johnnysprojects.com/

It's not finished yet so there isn't much to do which is why I had the website link in my last post for only a few days - enough for some visitors to take a look.

The next website synchronization will have the projects section completed for the most part. Adding projects to the projects section is something that will take more time.
