Weird observation about WordPress themes

Have changed blog’s theme to Garland… Looks really nice, IMHO, except for one little thing that bugs me for some time already…

I have an impression, that ALL free themes available from WordPress are a little bit flawed in one way or another. This one, for example, doesn’t have bullets in lists, which reduces readability greatly, although it has bullets in sidebars. All other themes I’ve tried had one or few minor “glitches” in them too – sometimes it is bullets missing, sometimes it is the color of the links, sometimes it is stupid looking list of categories, etc.

Is it just me, or WordPress simply doesn’t want us to have excellent free themes, but rather forcing us to pay few bucks to get CSS editor? This is ugly thing, if that’s the case, ’cause many people are either CSS-illiterate, or simply do not have time to play with those styles (in my case)…


Internet is Shit? Yes, it is!

Sometimes ago I posted a link to the site that claimed exactly that. Now, after dealing with DNS, registrars, web hosting and other Internet crap I have to admit – that guy is right. Even more – Internet is MEGA-shit and I do not understand how it can work altogether, taking into account its infrastructure and those “web/dns/you-name-it hosting crooks” that live around it.

Domain hosting companies will make your life miserable when you want to transfer your domains to other registrars – you will have to fight with them before you will get your domains (NTT/Verio). New registrars will suck you straight during the purchase/transfer of the domains – in place of X dollars you expect you will be charged (based on their ads) you will pay something like X * 2.5 and they will have a nice answer to the “Why?” question (GoDaddy)! DNS changes are propagating at the lightning speed of one change per week (sarcasm intended).

IT JUST SUCKS! Have a good night!
