    user perspective...

    we all were users... not programmers once... but when showing all of you my demonstrations, it was interesting to hear your responces... some of them were pretty vague, and i realized i could have offered more debugging information... [if you got the blurred screen, what was it? knowing me, you could just have expected that much, but you knew it when you saw it...]

    =-{so with the next version i'll have many more options, granted it'll take more time...}-=

    so about that, remember when you were users? remember when your perspective broke down and was rebuilt in the name of logik?

    I write UI as a job.

    Half is trying to code for all stupid possibilities.

    While making the most used features one less click away.

    I give people who do not use PC's / web browsers and ask them to do stuff (if I can find one). No help or guidance. If a new user can get the app to do what they want anyone can.

    Well the person who made the first ever software-controlled computer might be one of us.

    He was a programmer before he was a user. :P
