Why is the bloody picture blue !
Is it because its a png file ?
lets upload it as jpg then and see if there is any difference..
Oh something about lost transparency when I converted it..
It vaguely reminds me of some groups I still kinda belong to.
New members will see me, and ask how long I've been a member..
Well, 28 years ago, the group was founded by our now dead leader, I was the 5th person to join their group about 2 hours after it was created..
So, yeah, I've been here a while, read everything ever written by anyone in the group, and still think everyone else here is a complete idiot, apart from me. :-)
Well, actually, a few non-idiots do join from time to time, but then leave, either because they find the place full of idiots. (Apart from me..) or they get kicked out for daring to disagree with the group being 100% right about everything..
Which about sums up about 99% of groups in the entire world I notice..
Incidently, sometimes its wise to not officially join a group, but just to sneak into their meetings, since you have been there forever, folk just assume you are a member. :-)
That way you can join every group!
I wish I'd spent less than 40 quid on amazon >.<
I bought a dyson with my reward card points.
I probably have a problem.
I rarely use Amazon since most stuff is cheaper on Ebay.
Maybe once a year at most, perhaps once every two years..
Amazon give reward points ?
Ebay do, but if you don't spend them physically locally within 6 months, you lose them from what I can gather.
Nearest local point to me to spend them in is 500+ miles away, and would cost me a small fortune to travel there and back !
Local travel is a bit like this..
> CAR DUMP in ocean during
> huricane stormy weather
There's a reason why amazon search is so crappy and frustrating
It was coded by the same folk who did the Ebay one.. ?
I often find myself reporting a specific search engine being unable to find something I know is in its database.
Each time the company fixes it..
And a year or so later, its broken again..
I must be the only person telling them, since who searches for something they already know where it is, just to check its working !
Well, I want to know if I'm searching for something I don't know is there or not, that if it is there, it will tell me..
Doesn't anyone test these things..
Maybe, but could it just be its badly coded ?
Since it seems almost universally difficult to find one that is well coded !
I have difficulty imaging not finding the thing I want to buy is best for profits. :-)
It reminds me of here, when I suggested strongly that the local carpark needs to be bigger, because otherwise, where are all the tourists with fat wallets going to park..
So much negative feeling against the idea !
But they did eventually do as I suggested, and it didn't cost $50,000 !
I think it cost the price of a crate of beer, some earth moving equipment, and some gravel from the local quarry down the road..
