As much as Borders going out of business sucks, cheap books are a win. I now have "The Big U" (very early Neal Stephenson, and until recently impossible to find), Burning Chrome (William Gibson short stories), Mona Lisa Overdrive (Gibson, novel), and Will Grayson will grayson (John Green).

Internet shopping is awesome. Not for me, but I was talking to a very nice old lady the other day; she'd had a heart attack, so wasn't allowed to drive any more, and lived in a tiny village with no shops. She didn't have a computer, and all her family live abroad, so her family have been using internet shopping to get food and other essentials delivered to her house. She said that her fridge and freezer hadn't been so full for ages :D

I suppose it's alright for groceries because you can specify a time you know you'll be in, and the delivery guy has no excuse not to deliver. But just try and get non-consumables delivered. You have about 3 nanoseconds between hearing the barely audible tap at the door and the postman driving away. I swear, sometimes they've gone before the "you were out" card even hits the doormat. And that's if they even bother to come anywhere near your house in the first place and don't just update their tracking system to "card left" because they're too fucking lazy to drive their van down your street.

It's even more galling when it would have fit through the letterbox if only the seller had packaged it sensibly.

Sorry, this is supposed to be the awesome thread, not the rant thread. Shutting up now.

Your mileage may wary depending on location and indeed the very person doing the deliveries in your area.

Huh. For me (in California, and I never really pay attention to which company it is), it seems that they either drop the box in front of the door, ring the bell, and leave; or toss it over the gate to the backyard and leave a sticker on the door. I don't know how they decide which one, but I don't think they've ever held a package if nobody was home... or waited to see if anybody was home, for that matter.

UPS always attempts to deliver the package before the postal service center down the road (which collects all the mail on this side of base and distributes it to all the dormitories) before it's even open, then doesn't attempt to deliver it again when the service center is open. Whenever I order something that has to be shipped using UPS, I have it sent to the UPS Store. I'd rather pay $5 extra to pick my package up at the UPS Store than have to chase it around town for two or three days.

I found it's not only down to which company does it, even the very person doing the rounds in your area is a factor. The driver for one company making fairly many deliveries to my parents' house for example collects all the shipments and only goes there on saturdays, because their deliveries usually aren't that urgent and saturday someone's home at least (of course he only does so because they asked him to). Not really part of valid company policy, though, I'm sure.

Wait, you have to pay extra for them not to deliver it? You have to pay for the privilege or picking it up yourself? What manner of bonkers is this?

Who's "We" ?

People who are still on IE 6 generally aren't ignorant. They're using shit that hasn't been updated since 2002 or so. If the Mission Critical Web Application won't work in IE 7, 8 or 9, then.. you can't get away from 6 because it's sure as fuck not going to work right in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari or another browser.

As for why they haven't updated the shit.... fuck, that's the question for the goddamn ages right there. Do you realize that right now.. RIGHT NOW.. there are still active NT Domains out there? Not even 2000. N fucking T. Because it's necessary for some Mission Critical Application that the developer has not updated to something modern.

But yeah.. generally speaking, people using IE 6 know it's out of date because it's not what they use at home. They just know that their software vendor has either instructed them or their IT department to not update from IE 6 because the application doesn't work in 7. And so they just keep right on trucking, day in, day out, year after year not because they don't want to update, but because they can't. Blame the vendors for not upgrading the shit, blame the bosses for not yelling at the vendors to update their shit, blame the vendors for not forcing the upgrade on the companies.. I don't know where to start. It all depends on who you think should be responsible...

Should the software vendor force companies to update hardware and software when they know that even if they drop support, the company will just keep using the old outdated system because it's cheaper as they don't need New Hardware and New Training?

Should the company yell at the Software Vendor for not updating their shit because the Software Vendor doesn't want to have more than two or three live versions of their software and the Vendor knows that some of their clients will essentially refuse to update?

Should computers be built with self-destruct devices that automatically fry the equipment after six years of use so as to force updating hardware?

The whole system is just totally screwed, actually. I'm just trying to desperately hold on to the dream of not having to deal with IE 6 and it's shortcomings. Pretty please?

(Realistically speaking, of course, I'll still have to make things functional to an extent with old browsers. I might just toss them to the low-fidelity, responsive-actually-for-mobiles version instead of the modern swooshy version. But a guy can dream, right? After living this frikin nightmare of IE 6 support developing? /crawls away from chasm of darkness)

Okay, just finished a week at a XC training camp. For some reason, I've learned, Ultimate Frisbee is to Cross Country as swearing is to sailors, so we had a tournament during our free time.

The two teams playing in the tourney (not mine, sadly) were having a pretty even match, with each side just swatting down everything on defense. One team had a particularly aggressive guy in particular - our rules are "arm's length" coverage and no roughing receivers, but he "accidentally" tackled a few people a few times.

Have you ever seen "Facing the Giants?" In one scene (the final game, I think), the QB takes on a malicious player on the other team by ducking down, taking out his legs and flipping the dude on his back. Well, that happened in the last two minutes of our tournament, and may I say, it looks AWESOME in real life. We all laughed about it, though.

I switched ISP from BT to Andrews & Arnold today. I had trouble connecting, which turned out to be due to my router being broken, which is not awesome. But the tech support! I called and was immediately answered by a competent fleshling. And then later, at 11PM I was helped by an off duty employee on IRC, who was conversant with linux.

After failing a dozen would-be coworkers with fizzbuzz questions (I work in the web development industry), I ask, exhausted, a final candidate with the question "what would you put on a university website", and he gives me a blank expression for 5 seconds, before proceeding to answer "maps, course lists, calendars and contact information. Don't let me cheat with an xkcd question."

He breezed through the rest of the interview and we let him in that afternoon.

I'm afraid not; it was a spur of the moment type of thing and I didn't have a camera. It consisted of a loop of tape to tack down the end of the handle, and a cradle made from several layers to prop it up off the table.
