Tip: These results do not include the word…

I’m fucking the “These results do not include the word…” feature of Google.

Tip: This blog post does not include the word “HATING”.

Suck it, Google.

Thunderbird “send later” button. WTF.

September 22, 2009

I’m gonna bitch, the only place I know how to bitch. On my blog, which nobody reads.

What the FUCK is up with the “Send Later” button in Thunderbird? Maybe it’s a Beta thing. I don’t know. But whatever it is, it pisses me right the hell off.

I’m offline, but I forget I am. I send someone a quick email (fortunately, only to get them a picture off my camera as an attachment). I’m half-drunk so I click “Send” – or I thought. It really said “Send Later” but I missed the “Later” part. I figure it’ll be saved in my Drafts folder until I send it. Urr, no. It’s not. It’s nowhere. It’s not in Sent, Drafts, or otherwise. I can’t find it anywhere. It’s fucking gone.

I get online right away and get new mail (I use IMAP, which basically means just “go online”). It doesn’t say anything about sending mail. Nope. Nothing. I check my bandwidth, it’s not sending. The mail is completely gone.

What the fuck is Send Later supposed to mean other than “send when available but make it possible to see this email in the meantime””? Wouldn’t it make functional sense to put it in the Sent folder, where it will be the next time email is sync’d (if all goes as planned)?

May be just beta blues but god damn it’s fucking stupid.

Happy anniversary of the death of the aviation dream, America!

September 11, 2009

/shock

Seriously, the most serious impact that 9/11/01 had on America, in my opinion, is the total annihilation of the dream of aviation for many people. Prior to 9/11, the FAA wasn’t made of a bunch of tin-foil-hat pricks. Okay, maybe it was, but now it’s just ridiculous. Before, it was almost common to see people parked out, watching the planes take off, in a dreamy daze. Now that the government believes everyone looking at planes wants to hijack one, anyone watching planes is a terrorist.

Fuck the people responsible for 9/11 – terrorists or inside job, it doesn’t matter. Lives were lost, and the whole country was shaken by the disaster. But furthermore, fuck the people responsible for totally killing the aviation dream in America. Bastards.
