Getting On My Nerves

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2015 in Internet |

Sometimes I have the feeling that if you compliment someone – or something – too soon after a change, things go bad. I don’t mean that a relationship sours off or anything like that, but what you have complimented, what you considered good, an improvement or whatever, tends to be overshadowed by something else.

Changes For The Better

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 14, 2015 in Internet |

Back in March, as some may well remember, I complained that I felt Yahoo could be killing Flickr with their advertising policy, with slow connections and so on.

Humor?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 3, 2013 in News & Opinion |

It’s a good thing that the article at least has the word ‘humor’ in the title, although I suspect that most people would have overseen this single word and might take the article as a true representation of the facts.
