Check your Google Feedburner feeds: are they serving the correct sites?

A month or so ago, our Feedburner stats for Lucire’s RSS feed delivery tanked. I put it down to the usual “Google being useless”, because we would have expected to see the opposite. The take-up of Feedburner feeds has usually slowly grown since we started this one in 2007, without any promotion on our end. […]

I’m not the only one who has a problem with Internet Explorer

I realize software crashes can happen to anyone at any time, even Microsoft Windows president Steve Sinofsky, when demonstrating the new Microsoft Surface tablets in front of an audience in Los Angeles.    However, it does remind me of the year where Internet Explorer 9 would not work on any of our computers. The question […]

It’s the 1st of the month, so Facebook Timeline stops updating

I know I’m not alone on this, as I have heard from two other Facebook friends, but Facebook has trouble getting to a new month with Timeline.    Ever since my Facebook went to November 1, Timeline stopped updating. What rests there is the last post of October 31.    Earlier today, I could still […]

It’s nice to be believed

The bug I wrote about a few days ago that’s emerging when I use Autocade is now filed with Telstra Clear—and it’s been escalated.    For years I would report various faults, including with Telstra Clear, and I would not be believed. What a difference now that I am believed.    For around two years, […]

How do you take a screen shot when Alt-Print Screen stops working?

This is an error that happens to me at least twice a week for years, and no one seems to have a solution. I’ve read some of the help pages on this in web searches, and none of them help.    As far as I can tell, only one case of this has been reported, […]

Another false accusation from Google

For around a year, I’ve been at Google for its misbehaviours. And one thing I dislike about these tech companies—whether it’s Facebook or Google or any of their ilk—is how they are slaves to technology, rather than masters of it. Somewhere along the line, they have allowed algorithms to determine guilt, thereby offending that old-fashioned […]

Hong Kong disappears from Cities I’ve Visited app?

I have a feeling something is wrong with Cities I’ve Visited on Facebook. (Actually, something’s been wrong for a long time, either with the application, Facebook, or something between the two.) Not only has it not published new cities I’ve entered on this most recent trip, I now notice that while the important metropolis of […]

When Facebook robs you of having a profile pic

I will have more from my Swedish and French tour soon, but I will say that I had a marvellous time in Malmö and Lund on my first day in Sweden (especially getting a feel for Lund’s environmental programmes), Kristianstad and Hassleholm on my second, and on my return to Stockholm. A big-up to Stefan […]
