37signals is a pretty cool company. But sometimes, their blog posts irk me like no other. For example:

"Do you have a project in Basecamp that has been running for a year or more and need to know exactly when a message was posted? Now you can. On the permanent/comments page for a message, we're now including the year in the date stamp as per popular request."

You added the YEAR to your timestamps?! WOW!!! Please, write more posts on stuff like this! Hey, how about a blog post about how you guys make peanut butter sandwiches? That'd be great!

Edit: Wow, Jason Fried (or somebody claiming to be him, when will retarded Tabulas ever add OpenID?) responded in my comments. Pretty cool that 37signals listens to the peanut gallery ...

I guess it's just a difference in philosophy.

Roy would have made the change and wouldn't have said a thing, these guys do it and essentially pat themselves on the back, twice.

You're irked because we announced that we added something that people wanted? People were asking for it, it was a quick addition, we added it, and we let people know.

And people wouldn't have noticed the change without announcing it two separate blogs? It's one thing to be in the product blog, but what's the point of aggregating it into the company blog? Is it entirely necessary to announce you made a 1-line code change twice?
