    1. What are the differences between the Autobahnen and the Interstate Highway System?

      I know there are some Germans on Tildes, figure at least one of y’all might know. How does a typical Autobahn differ from a typical Interstate in design and construction? How often is repair work...

      I know there are some Germans on Tildes, figure at least one of y’all might know. How does a typical Autobahn differ from a typical Interstate in design and construction? How often is repair work done and how long does it last? What work would be required to upgrade an Interstate to Autobahn standards?

    2. Possibly the worst user interface I've seen all year

      This is a webpage for a courier company. This screengrab is the whole page as served to me. If I want to track my parcel I have to enter the details into the pretend phone on the right and pretend to use it like a phone, complete with tiny screen and fiddly controls.

      I get that they would like me to install their app but this is almost offensively user-hostile design, and pretty much ensures I'll never install anything of the sort. I might consider installing the app of a company who deliver to me regularly and have a good track record of being good at their jobs, if that app offers useful functionality which can't be offered via a web page - but even that's unlikely. But these guys who I have never heard of until today and are pulling this nonsense? No way.
