About Face

I have finally given in to the fact that social networking is a necessary part of didigtal life in our current world and joined Facebook.

Sickening, isn't it.

Darryn Mercer's Facebook Profile

Yahoo Groups

Does anyone know how I can add an alternate email address to yahoo groups? It keeps saying that it's sending a verification email, but it never does.

btw - I tried submitting this as a problem via their help pages, and that doesn't work either!

Shooting themselves in the foot...

Signing up for internet access/phone service with slingshot, I discovered no less than three bugs in their sign-up system! You'd think they'd get this right at least!

Eye Spy

For the last couple of days I have been suffering under what the doctor identified as a 'Severe Corneal Abrasion', apparently suffered while I was sleeping. If you get a chance to try one of these for yourself, I suggest that you don't.

So why do I love them so much?

Well, those of you concerned that acute Rock Band withdrawal might cause me to embark on a shooting spree can rest easy. My PS3 has been repaired ($220 - third party repair job), my XBox360 has been replaced ($200 - shop soiled model from tricky dick's) and my hard drive resurrected once it was put in a different external enclosure (weird thing, that - any other drive worked in its enclosure, and it worked in any other enclosure!).
