MySpace Hates Mac

April.27.2008 at 10:38 pm 5 comments

I honestly don’t understand why MySpace hates my Mac, my beautiful baby. I use Safari when I’m on it and for some reason that is unknown, everything on MySpace loads fracking slowwwwwwwly. Sometimes pictures or people’s profiles don’t ever show up.

Most of the time I refresh the page like a crazy mofo, but still … everything loads slowly or not at all. But what did I expect from them in the first place? I don’t even want to see what’s behind the scene at all. Okay .. so maybe it’s just the browser you say?

I downloaded Firefox for the Mac and still have the same problem. Pages load slower than molasses, seriously … to the point that it feels like dial up to me. I even tried Camino, another browser for the Mac, with the same results from the other two browsers.

It’s kind of frustrating to navigate to MySpace now whenever I’m using a Mac … stupid MySpace … get your act together and fix the damn code. What the heck is going behind the scene … I swear it’s like the site was made specifically for Micro$oft.

Anyways, the weather was HOT this weekend. It felt like summer and even though I sleep shirtless … I wanted to just take my shorts off and sleep in my boxer briefs.

I didn’t have a good night sleep because I kept tossing and turning in my bed and the dream I had was odd. It was weird because I was on vacation in Europe and towards the end of it, I had a big argument with my buddy James. *Rolls eyes*

Anyways … I’m happy to have seen on the news that it’ll cool off a bit by mid-week. Thank goodness for those onshore winds! And it’s getting closer to June, which makes me happy because WWDC is nearing!

    I have the same problem…
    when you look at your friends lists it takes forever to load the pictures and sometimes it doesn’t even load, it just puts up the question mark picture..
    I love my macbook, but this is really annoying

    – Nelson: No problem .. have fun snooping!

    – Kevin: Exactly … I get those damn question marks everywhere. I know its something with the Mac, because everything works perfectly on my PC, what a shocker huh?

    I haven’t found a solid solution to use, so for the time being, I guess we have to put up with this.

    I’ve always hated myspace too for the same reasons. but I just discovered a seemingly fool-proof way to listen to the music player on whatever page isn’t loading properly.

    Open the Activity window (Option+Cmd+A), look for the link lads.myspace.com/music/musicplayer.swf….. and double click it. A new window will open with the music player, and should play properly.

    If you’ve never looked in the Activity window before, welcome. 🙂 This is also a good way to download youtube videos directly.

    Hi Eliot.

    Thank you so much for your tip! I just tried it out and it works well because i’ve been on some bands site, but their profile wouldn’t load because of what I’ve mentioned in my blog post.

    I’ve never looked in the Activity folder before, so this helps a lot. I’ll try it out on youtube too! Again thanks for the help.
