A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Start.com, A Little Annoyance

I really like what msn are doing with . It looks sweet. It is sweet, but I have a little bug bear (I think that is a saying) with the site.

Here goes:

Every single button on the page, be it an "X" close button or a double cheveron button except the search button only respond to a type of mouse down event. It really bugs me that I cannot cancel my action (mouse button press) by taking the mouse mid-click off the button. Normal buttons normally allow this.

Put simply, if I start to click the X Icon to remove a feed, the feed is a removed, I don't like that. Normal windows elements normally require you to complete a click before the action is started. It is as if the only tactile feedback is via the "finger" icon.

Thats it really :)
