In the event I can go back in time after placing my order?

Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at 5:13 PM
"Please note that due to high seasonal order volume, orders placed for delivery between Dec 21st and Dec 24th cannot be cancelled or modified after Dec 18th."

If I placed the order between Dec 21st and Dec 24th, it's already passed the Dec 18th cut-off for canceling. Also, it's "canceled," with one "l".

Google Groups attachment limit of 4MB

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 4:11 PM
"Hello Jane [redacted email address and last name],

The message you are sending is too large. All messages must be less than 4.00 MBytes.

If you have questions related to this or any other Google Group, visit the Help Center at


Google Groups"

So Google's Gmail lets people attach up to 25MB to emails, all the addresses I have on my very short Google Groups list are Gmail address and I can't send more then 4MB to the address?

The grandparents are not going to be happy to only get 1 grandson picture per email.

Aw, Snap!

Friend Checker for Facebook

Wednesday, June 2, 2010 at 4:19 PM
Want to know you rejected your friend request or which friend disappeared from your friends list?

Check out this greesemonkey script!

First you need to use firefox for Facebook browsing
Second, you need to install this Firefox add-on
Lastly, install the script.

Then it'll grab a base line and tell you from there on out which of your friends disappeared from your friends list!

Check it out:

I found friends who deactivated their profile (because the script gives you a link to their profile) friends who have blocked me and rejected friend requests.

The one that blocked me, I viewed the profile from another Facebook account in another tab, switched back to my regular Facebook account while trying to send a friend request. Turns out Facebook knows better:

I even found a friend who deactivates her Facebook during the day, and turns it on my night. Funny!

Facebook Privacy Defect

Thursday, May 20, 2010 at 4:02 PM
One of my friends mysteriously disappeared from Facebook and realized it was probably on purpose. I decided to do some good investigation I searched for her by email, then imported my address book.

She was not found via an email search, but was found by an email import.

Don't worry, I didn't try and friend her again. I'm not into Facebook games.

Facebook - completely down

Friday, April 23, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Now there is something you don't see everyday! Facebook - completely down!

I explicitly said not to install, so it installed it.

I often like to use CutePDF to create a pdf of something I would have printed out if I had a printer. It's a neat little tool.

After installing it today I was really disappointed. I explicitly said not to install AskTool Bar:

So it installed it anyways:

It's a usability nightmare. Why even give me the choice? Now I don't trust CutePDF anymore!

Another Quality Defect from Quality Center

"Not enough storage is available to process the command."

I had just opened the webpage.....

The 'is' in the sentence makes it hard to read. Without it sounds better:
"Not enough storage available to process the command."

Though I haven't figured out what the problem was... nor what "storage" they are talking about.

Google Voice

It doesn't take much, input a code on your phone after singing up at the website:

Get a redundant message:

Have a friend call you with a message:

"Hey it's just want to go go black about that."

Hm, that didn't make much sense. Fail.

The actual message (way cool I can download it or embed in my blog!):

Actual message: "Hey it just went to Google Voice, how about that?"

Also note a previous post about Google having something in the works!
