Tribute to Dune

In light of waiting for the new movie by Dennis Villeneuve, Dune, I felt like posting this.

Frank Herbert’s Dune is literally one of the most full, articulate and solid Science Fictions books I have ever read. Honestly, I just can’t get enough of it! Plot, characters, setting, scenery, scenario, it is amazing!!!

The downside is I’m never happy with the movies though. The most serious approach (even though the director literally denied the word serious), was by David Lynch, in 1984’s Dune…

David Lynch’s Dune 1984

It was a good movie, but only for the fans… Very slow, with a lot of strange scenes, but it was something… The rest of the attempts are simply not worth mentioning.

Super excited with this movie!!

While we are waiting for this, I remembered my primary school games, and this blew my mind…

Trib-une, a TRIB-ute to d-UNE

Only the best strategy game I could play back then… I think it revolutionized modern gaming…

The Useless Web

Ah, the Internet. A place where most people can do their job a lot faster. A place where people can express also whatever the heck they feel. I’m one of those people. Plus some give or take more or less skills.

The birth of this Website

was mainly to express some frustrations while working as a software engineer, but also to report some findings my colleagues find during this endeavour.

Useless

That’s a word it has a very good meaning. For most of the people, quite the opposite, but, damn, when you’re useless you are funny (sometimes).

To the point then :

You have to click 2-3 times for the javascript to work.

A colleague found The Useless Web

An awesome site (of which gave me the idea of a trolling based context site), contains 1 javascript which after each click gets you to a

Completely Useless, Pointless, (and sometimes Offensive) Site.

Author is Tim Holman and I quote what he says:

The Useless Web… because some websites, we just couldn’t do without.

Damn right! Some sites in there are PURE GOLD.

 The Staggering Beauty

Move cursor violently and you'll see the beauty behind this ugly  worm like being.

And classics such as “Is it Christmas?

This one I think the guy also changed it. Now it resolves your IP and responds in your language :D.

Useless you say ?

Well I got one more step further. Below you will find all the sites featured in the master site , of which I got them from his source code.

Have fun 😀

Patience is a virtue!

Indeed. If you do not have Patience, you’re gonna get old really fast.

A greek proverb and in our line of work :

Please Wait - Most do, but there are @!#$holes!
Please Wait – Most do, but there are @!#$holes!

It’s true! Most people do wait when you prompt them. But there are also exceptions. In our line of work this happens a lot.

“Uhm, there is a wait screen…It says ‘Please wait, do not go back or cancel the waiting screen or your transaction might fail’… I clicked back, have I purchased the product?”

Again and again and again!

or, another client once said:

“I click the update button while the page loads, and it does not update!!!”

and to our dearest Project Managers:

“Come on, you have 1 day to rewrite the whole app, it is more than you need… You are a <<Ninja>> dev..”

Those people should be served with this page to see that Patience is a virtue :

Waiting…
