Trupe! (5, Funny)

mwvdlee (775178) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517258)

Just 50ms to make an impression is very short, so Slashdot just does the logical thing; they're giving it 150ms!

Re:The solution (1, Redundant)

frp001 (227227) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517284)

The article was posted @8.08, parent comment @8.18 and noone made this joke before! How can it have been modded "redundant"?

Re:The solution (1)

ArsenneLupin (766289) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517298)

Similar jokes have been made while it was still a dupe.

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#14517305)

Because it was posted 3 minutes earlier [slashdot.org] .

arivanov (12034) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517337)

This is a record as far as I know. Dupes - yes. But tripple posting of the same garbage is a bit too much to my liking. Even on a slow going Friday morning.

hackstraw (262471) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517448)

Hah. Do what I do, resubmit every dupe you see. Eventually I'll get an article posted that way...

Now that does not seem that effective because this is only the 3rd or 4th trupe that I have seen here on slashdot, and I'm more than a regular, closer to obsessive-compulsive.

Everytime it happens, I post a link like this [google.com] where I can find the other articles in less than 10 seconds, and I don't even work as an "editor" for slashdot.

My conclusions have been 1) they do not care 2) they like the negative attention 3) they have not read my posts, nor have they learned how to write a working search engine or use a working one called Google.

I mean, the attached search is a cut and paste of the headline "First Impressions Count in Website Design" preppended with site:slashdot.org to it, then hit return.

So, which is it guys?

Oh, I realized. The 10 seconds is 200x greater than 50ms. That is probably the reason I forgot, the editors have a low attention span like the 3 articles say.

And don't get me started about the musical.

Just wait until the musical is turned into movie starring a gay straight man, a straight man who might as well be gay, and a former SNL alumn.

Then we're talking!

There have been lots of tripes before. But I'm too lazy to look them up right now...

And there has even been a dupe which had a goatse pic in one of its links (although many people speculate that that was inserted between the first and the second incarnation, i.e. not really there the first time around)

Breaking the cipher, replying on-topic! (0, Redundant)

Willeh (768540) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517255)

I'm gonna break the mold and reply on-topic here:

You know this idea that people make judgements in the first 50ms before you can really gain a conscious impression of it (though probably something flashes in your subconcious) remind me of one of the entries in the "Dangerous Ideas" article in Edge Magazine in which Nobel Prize winning biochemist Eric R. Kandel argues that much of what we call "free will" is processed unconsciously without awareness:

http://www.edge.org/q2006/q06_5.html [edge.org]

Interesting read for sure.

Re:Breaking the cipher, replying on-topic! (4, Interesting)

mysticgoat (582871) | more than 8 years ago | (#14517416)

"Nothing to see here..."

One of the interesting points made in What the bleep do we know is that human retinas are bombarded with millions of data bits each millisecond, and somehow the brain reduces this to a few tens of thousands of bits in the process of forming a conscious image, which happens pretty quickly. So these questions arise:

  1. What are these processes that filter all this data before we actually experience "reality"?
  2. To what extent do these very fast working processes control what we think we are seeing?

So in terms of web sites, it seems that even though I might not know how to define it, I can recognize quality before I see it. Yeah, that fits my experience: I'll google for something, open up a dozen of the most promising links in new tabs, then run through most of them at full click speed because I can instantly tell that they aren't the ones I'm looking for.

Viva tabbed browsing!

Anonymous Coward | more than 8 years ago | (#14517265)

50 milliseconds huh?

Here's my list of things that almost guarantee that I'll leave your site behind, never to look back.

1 - Music - Your taste in music is not mine. Your music sucks!
2 - Pages that don't load - It's usually the page that looks like it has exactly what you were searching for too!
3 - Pages that don't contain the information "as advertised" - you know the ones...you click on a link and it goes to some search page that tries to reset your home page.
4 - Pages that are more banner ad than web page - Get over it. No one wants to see that much advertising. 5 - Anything that blinks - Thank god the W3C deprecated the blink tag
6 - Anything that demands I install a plug-in for "the user experience" - espeically those stupid cursors 7 - Anything that spawns pop ads
8 - Anything that doesn't present easy to read and use navigation (www.thetrueagency.com/true.html is a prime example of this)
9 - Anything that doesn't have a sufficient amount of contrast between the text and the background.
10 - Anything that uses more than 5 different fonts on the same page - Its a web site, not a comic book.
11 - Sites that redirect to another redirect - We get the idea that you move - a lot.
12 - Anything that uses more than 6 colors on the same page - It looks like a circus barfed on your page.

9 - Anything that doesn't have a sufficient amount of contrast between the text and the background.
10 - Anything that uses more than 5 different fonts on the same page - Its a web site, not a comic book.
11 - Sites that redirect to another redirect - We get the idea that you move - a lot.
12 - Anything that uses more than 6 colors on the same page - It looks like a circus barfed on your page.

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
