You know that PayPal isn't English? It is an AMERICAN English! And if you have any account with non-American nationality, due to large fuckup in PayPal, you can't access neither help system nor contact form. This is another big fuckup found in the world's largest on-line payment platform and it makes me start thinking if my money is as safe as I thought it would be just a few days ago?
When your account has so called non-standard (non-American) nationality, you can only select your own language and
English. You can't select
U.S. English< because this option isn't available on the list:
And since you're
U.S. English, any attempt to open Help Center or Contact Us page ends up with a beautiful error message:
I understand that Microsoft Office is eager to secure me as much as it is possible. And therefore there was introduced a "read-only" mode. How Microsoft / Windows / Office "knows" which of my private files come from the Internet and which don't? It gives me the creeps... Moreover, it seems to be a cool, security-oriented feature. But why it works for printing documents too?
What harm can I do myself or to my computer, even though the document contains a malicious code or any other kind of unwanted content if I print it out on a piece of paper? Will that execute some harmful macro? Is there any reason or sense behind this, except for pissing me off each time I have to click on
Enable Printing button on such docs?
Linkedin does not use any solution that would presist user state across subdomains, i.e. you can be logged-in on
www.linkedin.com and logged-out (looking at the registration form) on
nz.linkedin.com. Or any other country-related linkedin subdomain.
In other words, you can display somebody's profile browsing through main domain (e.g.
http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=66666666) and you're logged in. But when you use the very same guy's national URL (presented below his/her photo), e.g.
nz.linkedin.com/pub/some-guy/1/235/567 you'll see a form asking you to either login or register a new account.
What a lame!
If you ever lose your username/login at Clickatell (one of the world's biggest text messaging provider), you won't be able to recover it. Why? Since you go to a login page and click on
Forgot username? link, you'll be redirected to... Forgot Password form, where you're asked to provide your... username!
Nice! :] I just love stupid people in the Internet...
