You don't need a mobile app, you need a website that works, one that spent time and energy on the mobile experience. It will get better.

06/11/2018 - 8:40pm I’m in West Michigan and…

I’m in West Michigan and more than willing to help, if Brian and company needed it. If Human Element can handle it, then more power to them. I’m not interested in taking other people’s work from them.

06/11/2018 - 4:52pm If you work for a company…

If you work for a company that develops websites, it should be very obvious to you that Human Element specializes in more of the "back-end" development, stuff like data migrations (which this blog had probably one of the largest data migrations to tackle), software upgrades, custom integrations, etc.

They probably don't specialize in Design/User Experience/Front-end development (even though their marketing website will tell you otherwise), stuff like the look and feel, user interactions, etc. I bet Brian paid a good chunk for the back-end development and the front-end was a secondary priority. Putting money into the data migration is the right place, because losing data would be critical to this site.

Now that a solid foundation is in place from the upgrade, getting the back-end stuff solid, they can (and should) switch their attention to the front-end/user experience/design stuff that they didn't spend enough time on.

Unfortunately, all of us users only see/understand the front-end and don't understand the herculean effort that went on in the back-end. Me, being a developer who focuses on the front-end, I see and agree with all of the frustrations but also see both ends of the spectrum and cut them some slack.

I'm sure some updates are coming, now just hope that they find the right person to make the user interface/layout fixes.

Damn. RIP, Anthony. I really enjoyed his work. Makes me so sad when I hear people end their own life.

Plenty of people survive loneliness without having to resort to this sort of thing. I'm not sure human prostitution needs to be explored. This guy is just one messed up dude.

I had to re-login after clicking that url and getting that message on mobile, then it worked fine. 

06/07/2018 - 9:33am Here is the url to post a…

Here is the url to post a new topic to the MGoBoard.

The mobile view of the site has a few bugs and this is one of them. I hope the MGoBlog team wants us to keep posting these. Maybe we should have a sticky thread for a while, instead of creating a new topic each time.

What is the point of 40 rounds? Has anyone made a career in baseball being drafted that late? This seems like something that is easily changed.

02/16/2018 - 2:46pm I hope Michigan's offense is

I hope Michigan's offense is gangbusters next season and Brian has to suck a giant debbie downer dick.

02/16/2018 - 7:47am I would love to know

I would love to know what data Brian is working from to compare the Jim McElwain hire to the Greg Robinson hire.

I have to hat tip /u/Don for commenting in another thread and posting Greg Robinson's track record and it was abysmal before getting hired at Michigan. Jim McElwain's track record is not bad outside of Florida.

Brian used to be rational and thought out in his analysis but it appears Michigan football has broken him and now he's just throwing out feelings. It's like he's one of us now.

02/15/2018 - 12:41pm Why doesn't Nik ever blink?

Why doesn't Nik ever blink? It's weird.

02/15/2018 - 12:04pm Brian compared the McElwain hire

Brian compared the McElwain hire to the... Greg Robinson hire. Brian has definitely lost it. Nothing is that bad.

02/12/2018 - 12:56pm There is at least one

There is at least one more plate snuck in on each side. Looks like 25# plates. I would guess this is 455+, maybe a 5 snuck in there too.

An impressive weight for reps.

02/12/2018 - 12:54pm Because of guys dancing and squatting?

Because of guys dancing and squatting? I can't believe that was the missing formula all these years. All Hail King Herbert!

02/07/2018 - 11:26am The only thing I have right now

Which is Johnnie Walker Black. It's fine. This is fine. Everything is fine.

02/07/2018 - 10:45am I put an offer on a house today

The way this is going, someone from Ohio is going to outbid me and I'm going to lose out on that too. If you need me, I'll be in the corner with some scotch listening to R.E.M - Everybody hurts.

02/06/2018 - 6:36pm Why would I pay $4.99

Why would I pay $4.99 to watch the ESPN Loading screen and get to see every third play of the games? ESPN has one of the worst streaming services I've ever experienced.

It was so bad this year that I decided I will have to get cable for the next football season because it was unwatchable at times. And no, it wasn't my connection. I was 60mb down, hardwired to the modem to my TV.

02/01/2018 - 8:01am Anyone else think

Anyone else think this was going to be an old video of Herbert talking about taking steroids? Thankfully that was not the case and it was just a nice one minute montage. Whew. Nice click bait title, OP! You got me!

Time to work, WITH SOME JUICE!

01/30/2018 - 12:23pm Haha!

Haha! I have been off of the boards for a few days and this was the first comment of yours I read since logging on. I'm sure things will return to our regularly scheduled FauxMo programming.

01/30/2018 - 11:55am Okay, what is going on

Okay, what is going on? When did FauxMo become rational and reasonable? I'm uncomfortable for completely different reasons than normal when FauxMo posts.

01/17/2018 - 1:17pm Not sure but

Not sure but I heard their next smoothie blend innovation is going to change everything we know about everything, change the way we do everything. The best smoothie yet.

Spoiler: Its the same smoothie you had last time they just added one more strawberry.

01/17/2018 - 12:54pm The photo with the glass door

The photo with the glass door and all of the smoothies makes it look like an Apple Store with nothing but smoothies.

01/17/2018 - 12:44pm Talking Firearms would be awesome

Talking Firearms would be awesome. I hope everyone could keep it respectful. Do it!

01/17/2018 - 12:42pm I got you. Stick to dancing.

I got you. Stick to dancing.

For future reference, if you remove the emojis from the text in the embed code, it works.

01/17/2018 - 12:41pm I was told you have to remove "emojis". Let's see.
01/17/2018 - 12:38pm I would over pay

I would over pay for some of those Michigan branded weights. 

01/17/2018 - 11:40am I actually like the G19 stock trigger

I actually like the G19 stock trigger. My favorite trigger is the HKVP9, which is on my "to buy" list. I want to get my hands on the Walther PPQ because I've heard that is the best stock trigger out there.

BTW - you found yourself a keeper in your wife. That is a great wedding gift. 

01/17/2018 - 10:46am I liked it

I can't compare it to the P250 but I have shot my buddies P320 Subcompact a lot and really like it. Have you shot a Glock 19 at all? It feels similar to that pull, imo. 

01/17/2018 - 10:45am P365

I'm very eager to shoot the P365. I have the S&W Shield 9mm and the Glock 19. I use the Shield for when I'm being a little more active and its very comfortable for that but I have to be honest, I hate that stock trigger. I know I can upgrade the trigger. I don't love the G43, so I'm very interested in the P365.

I love shooting my buddies P320 Subcompact, so I'm hoping I'll enjoy the P365 too.

01/17/2018 - 9:38am I second this

I second this

01/17/2018 - 9:38am I use LastPass

I use LastPass. It's free and does what I need it to. 

01/17/2018 - 7:28am Raise your hand

Raise your hand if His Dudeness would have been the last person you would have guessed to be vegetarian on the board.

/Raises hand

01/17/2018 - 7:19am Yes, they have a program

Yes, they have a program going that you can send in your gun and they will fix everything. Takes like 4-6 weeks from what I heard, which means you'll need to buy a back up firearm while you wait. Oh darn.

01/12/2018 - 11:42am 7-6 and 3-9

I can't wait to compare Harbaugh's 6th and 10th season to Dantonio's. Dantonio was 7-6 in his 6th season and then 3-9 in his 10th. Something tells me that isn't happening with Harbaugh.

Dantonio is a good coach but Harbaugh he is not.

01/09/2018 - 10:40am Youth is no longer an excuse!

Youth is no longer an excuse! Lots of true freshmen were making huge plays on a huge stage. I'm tired of the youth excuse.

01/08/2018 - 12:56pm So stupid.

So stupid. There are gun laws in place, just like there are traffic laws in place. The 2A community isn't saying get rid of all gun laws. They're saying increasing the gun laws aren't going to help prevent bad guys from getting them, in the same way that increasing the traffic laws isn't going to help bad drivers obey traffic laws.

12/28/2017 - 2:25pm No coffee provided

No coffee provided. We were allowed to bring in our own coffee makers and brew our own but we had to buy the grounds. So, as a dev team, we purchased a coffee maker and rotated buying the grounds.

12/28/2017 - 2:21pm 2018

2018. Its time to make some changes in your life.

12/28/2017 - 2:02pm Warmed up coffee for me

Warmed up coffee for me. Hate it. Ruins it.

At my last job, some guys would take their coffee from the previous day, warm it up and drink it before getting a fresh cup in the morning. They were extremely frugal or terrorists.

12/22/2017 - 2:06pm Haha, I agree with you

Haha, I agree with you.

12/22/2017 - 12:04pm No more sympathy

No more sympathy. This guy deserves the worst.

Strip clubs are nasty in general but there is strip clubs and then there is strip clubs in Ohio. We can all agree that a human being is more vile if he is interested in a strip in Ohio than say, Michigan. 

12/22/2017 - 8:46am A strip club in Ohio

A strip club in Ohio, of all places. He killed a mother and a 5 year old girl for a strip club in Ohio. This guy is a piece of shit and I hope he doesn't see the light of day outside of prison for the rest of his life. 

12/08/2017 - 9:52am I shouldn't have read/watched that

I shouldn't have read/watched that. Calm down, don't get excited, don't get excited.

Oh God, I'm excited.

11/30/2017 - 9:24am He's just there for the parties

He's just there for the parties.

11/30/2017 - 9:22am In 10 years

In 10 years, when Herm is of no use, he will pay dearly for his actions.

11/22/2017 - 1:27pm This will not suffice

This will not suffice. I need hourly updates, please.

11/22/2017 - 1:26pm What is the difference?

What is the difference?

11/16/2017 - 1:24pm Okay, cool

Okay, cool. I'm fine with that. I was worried I was off my game and missed ONE piece of Michigan Football news this week and was starting to evaluate my life.
