  • Mood:

back in the cold

Thanksgiving was fun. (except for the flight down - it felt like my sinuses had acid in them for about an hour and that my ears were going to explode on the way down! Cold + airplane == bad) It was nice to see David's nephews again, although I didn't really feel like taking pictures so I didn't. Weather was good, too.

I actually got up early Friday morning for my first Black Friday experience. I was trying to get a Wii but came up short. (the gamestop in Victoria didn't get any...) The crowds in Target and Best Buy were amazing - at least a two hour wait to check out, I'd say. Luckily (I guess) I didn't have to :-)

I was in a bit of a mood last night after getting home so I worked on the LJ backup some more, and was able to make it spit out a calendar (which I had been dreading). Thank goodness! Oh, and here's a fake poll for example purposes when I get around to parsing them:
Poll #876473 a sample poll

What do you think about radio buttons?

They seem pretty useful.
3(20.0%)
Frankly, the word "radio" is so yesterday.
6(40.0%)
I want to choose every option! Booo!
6(40.0%)

OK then, how about check boxes?

Now I'm confused; too many choices!
0(0.0%)
This could work, but I don't like the square shape. Someone could get cut on the edges!
0(0.0%)
Click1!
0(0.0%)
Click2!
0(0.0%)
Click3!
0(0.0%)

Interesting. And drop-down boxes?

Ooh, this is more compact.
3(20.0%)
But what's the difference between this and radio buttons? Just that it's harder to see all the choices?
11(73.3%)
Is this poll done yet?
1(6.7%)

In 50 characters or less, explain your feeling on free-response polls.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how glad are you that this stupid poll is over?
