I wonder if product X works with product Y..

I'll google that..

No answer..

I'll check the technical FAQ's on the manufacturers website, no mention..

I'll search their support forum:

The following words in your search query were
ignored because they are too common words:

Gizmo 7.

You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

Well, that isn't very bloody helpful is it !

No problem, I'll just send them an email via their online webpage form...

The form was not submitted for the following reasons:

The following required fields have been left blank:


Please use your browser's back button to return to the form and try again.

Well, you didn't mention that telephone was a must fill in part until now !

And of course, when I go back, the form is empty..

Grrrr !!!

So, today's wisdom, whenever filling out an electric form, always copy and paste to a text file in case the form messes up somehow..

    This reminds me of the issue I was having with my butter dish..

    My butter dish is a rectangle.

    Local butter comes in round shapes..

    No problem, I'll ask the butter dish people to make a round butter dish.

    "No!" was their reply..

    No problem, I'll ask the people who make the butter to supply it in rectangular format..

    "No!" was their reply..

    I think I see a pattern emerging here..

    I'm reminded elsewhere, where I've been for 10+ years, folk pointing out that going to random URL's posted online is too dangerous and no one should do it !

    Not even from folk who have been there for years and you kinda trust that when it looks like a youtube link, its probably a youtube link..

    When did folk get so paranoid about URL's they can see ?
