Cheap Shipping



  • Well, relatively speaking ...

  • [:|] OMFG. WTH Kind of compact flash card was that?!!



  • BTW... I'm beginning to think Amazon.com is the source of the WTFs in the code section. My gawd.



  • Of course! The estimated ship date is September 22, 2003; shipping backwards in time is still relatively expensive! [;)] As more use the service, the prices should come down...



  • OK, a WTF to myself on this one; that's the actual price of the item, not the shipping...[:S] never mind... [:#]



  • Wow, you use an old version of Firefox/bird!



  • No, I don't use an old version (I use 1.0), that screencap is just that
    old. I've been sitting on it for a while and after seeing the other
    Amazon sidebar post here, I thought I'd share it.



  • Surprised nobody has mentioned/noticed the Oracle9i bookmark at the top...



  • For one million dollars, I'd hope that it came with a "la-ser".

    Well, I would consider a browser that is 3 years and a whole major version out of date an "old version"...

    So, which version of Firebird would you have used in 2003?

    Why do you insist on using the attachment feature for your own posts, but limiting the rest of us to image hosting services?

    There are a myriad of reasons.  The primary being that he doesn't want random joe with a script to fill up his quota. 

    Are hosting services really that bad?  I know I've used them a couple of times and they were very simple.

    Also, way to resurrect a 3 year old thread for some bullshit.

    How about because it is his site, and he can do whatever he wants?

    That's just a form of "because he's an arsehole". It's no different to "it's my ball".

    I don't understand your comment. It is his site, he can make rules as he wishes. Saying that the rule is stupid might be valid or invalid, but questioning his ability or right to make the decision is pointless.

    It's my fist, and I can punch you in the nose with it if I want to. Questioning my ability or right to do this is pointless.

     

    Oh wait, no, that's a load of crap. Were you beaten with the stupid stick when you were a child?

    I can't reply to that logic... since it makes absolutely no sense. You DO have the right to do anything you want to do... and face the consequences of such actions...

    I get the feeling you are off on your own tangent though, so I will just step out of your way.

    Which would be why I asked _why_ he made that decision (which has two parts: disabling attachments for us, and continuing to use it himself).

    Do you run a site? If so why do you let yourself put stuff on it, but not me? Do you have a house? If so, why do you allow yourself to put stuff in it, but not me?

    Because Alex has granted you the additional privilege of posting text on his site, you feel that he has an obligation to let you upload images too? You know, he can also post questionnaires here too - and recently has - so why not let everyone do that? If he wanted he could also post binaries. Again, where does he get off not letting us do the same!!

    Personally I'm just annoyed that he insists on putting his own revenue-generating ads on the site, but limiting the rest of us from doing the same!

    Best troll ever.

    Oh, and happy birthday, thread!

    My point exactly. Much better stated though.




  • How are people getting upset that someone asked a question and politely brought up a valid criticism of the site? That said, it's most likely that he doesn't want to end up hosting something of questionable legality. Other forums have additions to integrate them with the free image host sites, but that's probably too much to hope for with Community Server.
