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
