What's the brown stuff running down your leg?
With a title like that I know you are going to have to read the whole blog post eh? Saturday was, as it almost always is on race day, an early start. The Seattle Rock and Roll marathon was in town and I had snagged a $45 entry a year ago when they announced...
Goodbye Yahoo Messenger...
Today I got notified about an important update. Though it never really explained what had changed other than their terms and conditions but I started the install anyway and over on the right hand side I noticed a non standard button that said 'customise...

Alaska Airlines followup
So the other day I wanted to send general feedback to Alaska Air and they made it so difficult that I blogged about it . As generally happens these days companies search for their names and try to help when they find a complaint on a blog so as you can...
Don't you hate companies that don't really want your opinion
I see on the TV this morning that Alaska Airlines, who I mostly enjoy flying with, made a big loss and also announced that they will be charging $15 per checked bag going forward. I'm sure 90% of people will start whining just like they did when other...

It doesn't matter who... customer service sucks
Yes AT&T and LetsTalk.com I am talking to you. Lets start with the fact that if I walk into your store you expect me to pay for a phone and yet I can get the same phone for free, with a 2Mb SD Card and a car charger (and a free Xbox 360 deal which...
Comcast - maybe not as bad as I implied
Never let it be said that I'm not capable of admitting when I am wrong. After my last blog post where I wasted several hours on fixing up email when Comcast pulled the plug on port 25 I got a blog comment directly from Comcast . Initially I was very...

Hey web pages designers quit moving the focus...
I've noticed a recent trend of web pages that set the focus control to a sensible place but do it after the 3-4 seconds it takes their page to load. This means that if *I* have already moved focus you steal it back from me. Live login is the prime...
Network Solutions - why do I hate thee?
Its not just because they think there is something special about domain registration that they can charge more than anybody else. its because every time I have had to deal with them they treat you like they are used car salesmen. I'm helping a friend...
Twitter is NOT........
A way for you to chat 1 on 1 with a buddy...... there are already plenty of applications for you do that . A way to notify us of your blog post.... this is a well solved problem A discussion area.... there are much better places to do this A place for...
DRM vendors thanks for shutting down...
[Wow 2 posts in one day and neither about running!] There are a lot of people out there who hate DRM with a passion. I'm not one of them. I understand that its a necessary evil in a world where most people will get something for nothing if they possibly...
How to be annoying at a conference
Last week was the annual(ish) MVP Summit here in Seattle and as a regular observer of idiotic behaviour there was no shortage of things for me to watch out for. When there is free food its there for you to stock up your hotel room with. To the MVP who...
Retarded dog owners
Just because your dog responds to 'sit' when you are sitting quietly at home with a treat in your hand does not mean your dog is trained well nor is it 'under voice control'. So when you take your dog to a park please follow the city law...
Airline Logic
I just returned from a trip to GDC in San Francisco where United Airlines moved themselves very low down my list of airlines to choose if all other things are equal. I never actually say "I wont fly them again" because airlines are all much...
Tax refunds are for fools...
Yes its that time of year when the TVs are full of people promising you big refunds and mates bragging about their $2500 checks and how they are going to live the American dream by spending the refund on something they don't need. When I tell them...
