1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It was kind of a shock when I got a little bit older to discover that the world is full of "adults" in their 50s and 60s who still don't have any more common sense or maturity/responsibility than the average 13 year old.

    'authorities think the daughter -- who the mother said had some mental issues -- was upset about something.' -- Detroit Free Press. Biggest 'no shit' line I think I've ever read in a published article.

    I was auditioning lead vocalists for my new power trio rock and roll act there was one guy I liked a lot but he insisted that his stage name was "Giuseppe Fury." I told him I wouldn't accept him in to the trio with such a ridiculous stage name. And so he was like "Ok how 'bout Giuseppe Savage?" I was like :censored:

    Garbage in, garbage out. A lot of times a reporter will start calling around and that's the best response they'll get--people will just shrug and say "I guess she was upset about something."

    Valentine Weekend. This is the weekend that all those people that rarely go out to eat, go out to eat, and expect to be treated like regulars/ballers.

    Thank god the day of doom itself is Sunday so Friday and Saturday won't be totally fucked up.

    Customer service feedback requests that only let you check certain boxes without adding comments, which clearly were designed by someone in the CS group to yield inflated performance numbers that they can report up.
    Boring detail on recent example:

    Ordered some prints of photos from a recent example from Shutterfly. After a couple of weeks, realized they still hadn't arrived. Checked the order confirmation, which contains a purported UPS tracking number. Try the number, which just returns an error message from UPS. Email customer service, explain the problem, and specifically ask about the invalid tracking number. Get a response saying that because the prints haven't arrived within the estimated delivery window, they are deeming them "lost in transit" and sending replacements. All fine, but no response at all to my question about the invalid tracking number. It's actually relevant to whether I'll continue to do business with you whether it's your fuck-up or UPS's, and whether you're willing to own it if it's yours. Also emailed UPS asking why the tracking number simply returns an error message (e.g., is it even a valid UPS tracking number that corresponds to a package they have a record of receiving from the sender?). No response as yet.
    So no, not going to check the boxes on your customer service survey when I haven't yet received the replacement order you supposedly sent and haven't gotten an explanation of why I never got the original one.
    The whole "tracking number" thing (as you might have guessed) tends to make me all hibbeldy-jibbeldy. Merchants love to make a big deal of WE'RE GIVING YOU A TRACKING NUMBER SO YOU CAN TELL EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOUR ORDER AT ALL TIMES, ISN'T THAT GREAT!! But I've found that with some regularity the "tracking number" is about as helpful as a RickRoll link, and neither the sender nor the carrier will explain why it doesn't actually correspond to anything or yield any actual information.

    Also, based on additional data I'm doubling down on a previous post. People who drive white cars are douches and really need to finish their personal grooming before getting on the freeway.

    I've found recently that some companies through amazon due this same crap and figure most people forget or whatever and they just make the money. We had ordered some office supplies through an amazon company and kinda forgot about them until about two weeks later. Email them and they pull the whole "Well it was lost on its way to the carrier" even though it has a tracking number. (ironically through ups as well) Complete and utter bull.

    I always learned you are not suppose to shop when you are hungry buy too many things that aren't necessary. You should wait until your hunger dissipates in intensity.
