no-ip.com, no-thought.com

dear no-ip.com,

please stop sending me useless and unproductive renewal notices for my reverse DNS renewal account each month.

your service is not worth paying for, I use it because it's free.  if I have to pay for it, I will abandon it for something else.  probably also free, if not I'll pay someone else on the grounds of their being less annoying alone.  spamming me will not change that, so all you are doing is wasting both your time and mine.

I realise that it costs you next to nothing to send me a false-hope nag renewal every month.  please understand that it only cost me a few minutes to automate a response, so from now on, you're wasting your time alone.

like many others in the online industry, you have confused ability to annoy with translation to some sort of branch to profitability.  sorry, but that archaic thinking went out the window right around the time that the average consumer had the technical ability to fight back.  and we're a hell of a lot more agile than you, and with the groupthink of the entire planet focused on you - good luck.  I hope you don't have a lot of investment options yet to vest on that one.

sincerely, and with all due respect, fuck you.

technorantia.

Embedding gfycat GIFs

Just an aide memoir to how to do this, it was enough of a pain to figure out once.

Reset the clock

You know, it would be nice if we could just get through ONE week without a raghead muslim terrorist act, you know?

CCTV of the cultural enrichment in progress:



And the aftermath.  How's that open-door immigration policy working out for you, Sweden?

Overentitled prat of the day

You wouldn't think it was possible for most BMW drivers to be bigger knobs, but yes it can be done.

Note the TWO reserved car park spaces.

Reset the clock...

Another day, another terror attack.  Three people killed with a vehicle, the driver stabbed a police officer before someone could put a couple of bullets into the prick.

Who would do such a thing?





Surprise!
