The little girl in the commercials for this site is a nosey asshole.

Mind your own business, little girl. Your grandfather is a creep and there's no Santa.

Site setup is easy, but you make your profile WELL before you are given payment options. What this means is that you get invested in the site, and then you are shown the rates, which can be a bit shocking if you have never used a dating site before.
I highly recommend finding a promo code for the site before starting.

Additionally, creating your profile is easy, as there are lots of prompts to help you know what to put and where. It can feel a little pushy sometimes, but it is probably for the best that you follow its lead with such things as "add a 2nd picture to your profile".

The initial contacts are also intuitive and, by design, you cannot directly talk to people. You can send ice breaker style questions to someone you are interested in, or you can request permission to go right to chatting, but the other person would need to agree.

A few problems that I've found:
1) if the site breaks, it is not rapidly fixed, though it was fixed
2) if you live in a very small town, you'll get hassled to expand your preferences. for instance, when I lived in Alaska, it wanted me to allow matches up to 6 hours away by car.
3) as you start discussions with people, the message chains try to bury themselves under your other contacts. there is no way to make someone a primary interest, and thus see what they have said to you easier.
4) you end up doing a LOT of scrolling to keep track of everything the site throws at you.
5) there is a "pause" function, if you start to date someone, but like many fringe features, it is hard to find.

My experience was negative in the small town, but positive in the large town, even though I've not found someone who fits me yet.

The site also includes a lot of helpful articles on dating subjects in general, that are unrelated to online dating.

Does it bother anyone else that the founder looks just like Don Knots?

Freaks me out, man.

You can't sign up for this website if you're gay. I wish I could congratulate all of them personally for the chance to miss out on this shithole of a website. eHarmony can suck my metaphorical dick.

Ars Technica

by tb2571989

I started reading Ars Technica after leaving LifeHacker as I wasn't a fan of the re-design. I still find myself back every now and then, but Ars is one of my daily check-ups.

One of Ars' strengths is the seriously in-depth articles and reviews. The ridiculious but fascinating 40,00...

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

The History of Byzantium

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.

It's so amazing that we have the opportunity to listen to so many years of history is such a fine detail. It's a marvel of the modern world. Thanks for doing this, Robin!
