mrchocky: Try again with a more rational start? What part of my post wasn't completely rational? Instead of taking it personally, how about (as I think you're fond of asking others in these kinds of discussions) you actually address what I've said instead of ignoring it all by becoming upset. From you reply I suspect you stopped reading after my first sentence.

Appoligies for being a little rude, but try and get past that.

Nothing I've read suggests you know interface issues 'exceptionally well'. Care to point me to something specific? And regardless, it's not what you know, it's what you care about and plan on acting upon.

All you have to say is something like 'yes, I know that a style guide complient interface is important and it's something I'd like to work toward' and I might support the project. I can only assume, however, that your thinking is along the lines of 'making it style guide complient would be very hard/ very time consuming work, therefore I can't justify doing it'. You've now taken that line of reasoning to the twisted extreme by trying to suggest that nobody really wants a style guide complient interface, that browsers don't need them, that it would make no difference... whatever you can think of to justify not doing the work.

If you don't want to do the work, there's obviously nothing I can do about it. But just admit the real reason you're not doing it, don't try to suggest there's no value in doing it. Or do you really not understand interfaces as you claim to?

  • Will Wakefield 2009 see a new graphics card for RISC OS?
    Speculation is mounting that the Vpod, a mysterious new product pre-announced this week, could be a graphics card on a podule for RiscPC-class machines. Well-placed sources have said that the Vpod is not an April Fools joke despite it being hyped up on April 1st by Stuart Tyrrell Developments, which sells the Unipod upgrade and is linked with A9home manufacturer Advantage Six.
