I recently added a metric to imperial unit converter to the site. A few American friends thought I wasn’t being very nice because as an Australian I used the metric system … and this was in some way deliberately prejudiced (one even called me racist because obviously being the bigger nation the USA way was the only way) … of course I laughed at this and told people to learn how to multiply by 2.54 … obviously if they couldn’t do that then this site was way beyond them anyway. Well you know how it goes … suddenly wordpress offered this easy to use plug in that did it all automatically. Whoo hoo I exclaimed and installed the plugin … that’ll keep the lazy American’s using the lazy pattern section happy. Well you’d think so wouldn’t you? As it happens the American made plug in had a few bugs that didn’t do what it was supposed to do and it messed up the way my script took information when you entered your measurements … as a result the lazy persons patterns stopped working from time to time. After 30 minutes trying to work around the bug I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror … here I was trying to fix a problem created by poor programming that was designed to help lazy people be even more lazy … so I stopped, deactivated the plug-in, and deleted it.
If you want to use my lazy person’s patterns and you prefer inches, then learn how to multiply … and don’t come and tell me it’s my fault … my 13 year old can do it without a calculator so you should be able to as well!
