SMH: Tumblr Pet Peeves

I obviously like Tumblr as a multimedia microblogging platform since my first post almost exactly three years ago, but whenever I use the web interface, I’m always annoyed by:

Landing Page (screenshot #1): Signing up for a new account is prominently displayed in the center of the page, but existing users can’t login from the main http://www.tumblr.com landing page. Instead, existing users require an extra click on the not very prominent “Login” button at the top that often blends into the color scheme of whatever image or theme you happen to get when you visit the page. Most services, social media or otherwise, have both sign up and login prominently displayed on their landing pages, including Facebook, Twitter, and any Google services behind login (Gmail, Google Calendar, etc.). Even the main http://google.com landing page has a prominent blue “Sign In” button in the upper right hand corner!

Login Page (screenshot #2): When you do get to the login page, you have to login with the email address associated with your account rather than your username despite the fact that everywhere else in the system, your Tumblr username is basically your primary identifying handle for you and others to find you— for example, unless you use a custom domain, your Tumblr URL is actually username.tumblr.com. Twitter allows you to login with your phone, email, or username and even Facebook allows logging in with any of the email addresses or phone numbers associated with your account. So why can’t I have the option to login to Tumblr with my email or username?

Okay, just needed to get that off my chest— I’m done now :)

Korean Food Truck Day 1: Bob Cha (밥차)

I don’t know what kind of weird food truck vortex our office happens to be in, but there is at least one Korean food truck everyday. Since I was basically doing it anyway, I’m now going to see how many days in a row I can do Korean food truck for lunch.

Today, Monday, we have bibimbap (비빔밥) from Bob Cha (밥차), which literally translates to “Rice Car”.

Coke Can Drinking Glasses

Random trip to the dollar store comes through for me once again. Of course, the real question is:

Is the glass half full or half empty?
