Little Google App Bug

It says on the right hand side that the max users I can have for this domain is 3, but on the left hand side it tells me I've reached the 2 user limit for this domain.

Hm...

I only paid for 2 users, so the left hand is right.

Also, it's too bad we can't have premium and non-premium users in the same domain.

What the heck iHandy Level?

I was playing around with my iPhone during the conference at boisecodecamp.org and this is what I found with the iHandy Level app.

The question is, what is the difference between the first picture and the second? Moreover, why?



Installling Ubuntu

I had just cleaned off my Windows Vista computer of everything I wanted and inserted an Ubuntu install disk ready to shutdown and reboot to repartition, reformat, and choose packages I wanted to find out that the Linux world had become so friendly and easy I almost cried..

Blogger on the iPhone

Blogger.com has a cool layout that it doesn't require much updating to have it show up nicely on the iPhone.



As they take a snapshot of the website as the button on the homepage.




To take a screenshot on the iPhone, press the Home button and the Lock button at the same time.

Import your blog RSS feed to Facebook

1) After you login, click on the "Home" link on the top navigation bar.

2) Click on the Notes link

3) Click on the "Import a blog >>" under the titel "Notes Settings."

4) Type in the name of your blog, check the checkbox and click the "Start Importing" button

5) Scroll to the bottom of the page

6) Click the button at the bottom of the page called "Confirm Import"


I keep multiple blogs, so I was disheartened to learn Facebook doesn't allow you to import more then one blog to your profile.

Practical Problems with .ME Domains

at 3:52 PM
The website for this blog is blog.jane.me. Both the blog -the subdomain- and jane -the domain- I chose. You can also choose from a number of Top Level Domain (TLD) to host your domain. Just having a .com is the way of the past. Here comes the new .me.

The problem with adopting a new Top Level Domain (TLD) as a permanent email address is that not everyone is aware of the new TLD. My guess it will take some complaints to change the web code to allow it as a valid email address.



This one is from Amazon:


It must be a default error message. The same message also appeared when I typed "valid@email.asdasdfasdfasdf."

Practical Problems with Plus Addressing

at 3:31 PM
Plus addressing allows you to make aliases with your email account. Gmail.com happens to support plus addressing. If I wanted to sign up for a Gander Mountain newsletter, I might tell them my email address is zubterfuge+gander@gmail.com and the email will still come to me (at zubterfuge@gmail.com). Everything after the plus is ignored and comes to my mailbox, but I can filter emails based on the address I gave Gander Mountain. I can also see who is selling my information too.

Read more on plus addressing here.

The problems with plus address in the practical work are numerous.

They are great for sorting incoming mail and seeing who is selling your information (based on who it was sent to).



Those taking myself off a mailing list seems to pose problems when websites start filtering for the plus-sign.





It looks like the form filtered out the plus so it submitted the address "zubterfugegander@gmail.com for removal.

Now how am I supposed to get off of people's email lists?
