エスカレーターは階段として使用可能なのに

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

今東急線の駅の下りのエスカレーターに「節電のため、使用を中止しております。」が書いてありますが、エスカレーターは階段としてできるのに、なんでそれも中止するかはわけわからない。

東急は馬鹿馬鹿し。。

www.がないとアクセスできないサイト

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

さっきブックマークから、東急の時刻表をアクセスしようとしたら、HTTPエラーもなく、ページがまったく表示しない。。。

http://www.tokyu.co.jp/railway/jikoku/oi_wk_2_42.shtml

するとtokyu.co.jpを手打ちしたら、またつながらない。。。Google Chromeは一応、親切に「もしかしてwww.­tokyu.­co.­jp」と出してくれるから、割と素早くいけますが、今頃、www.がないとアクセスできないというのはなんで原始的で、お客様のことは考えてくれてない感じがします。

ま、でも正直のところ、東急グループに対しての不満はDNSサーバーの設定より、毎日の通勤電車のギュウギュウのせいだけど、つい、東急グループを馬鹿にできるもの探したくなるんだ。。。

そういえば、faq.tokyu.co.jpには「Powered by OKWave」と書いてあるから、それはちょっぴりイノベーティブかなぁ。。

Set Overage Protection???

What the hell is Set Overage Protection????

Well I’m buying a new hosting package at Godaddy.com, and it was one of the options. ?So I clicked on the help icon to get more info, and it said:

Bandwidth Overage Protection shields you from costly bandwidth overage fees by automatically suspending your account when its allotted bandwidth is exceeded. Your suspended account is reinstated at the start of your next billing cycle or when additional bandwidth is purchased.
Basically there are no surprises this way…. I was thinking about if Rogers or any of the celphone carriers I’ve ever worked with had an option like this, particularly around data… But it would probably fry their business models… Like travelers check companies who make most of their profit from CCs which never get cashed, the celphone carriers probably rely on people signing up for the wrong plan and?unknowingly?going way over what they wanted to spend…

Digg.com should let people change links

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

There should be a mechanism in Digg, that when a linked media goes down or changes URL, that people can change the target URL through a voting process, instead of having to search through the comments for a mirror site….

Also unrelated, but I noticed digg.ca was for sale, starting price 1000 USD. ?I wish someone would buy it and make a Canadian oriented Digg… I know there are alternatives, which brag having more of an?international?viewpoint… but I can’t be bothered to remember any…
