  • I bought something on the web. The company thoughtfully provided a phone number to use to call if you have any questions.

  • TRWTF is saving a picture of text as jpeg.



  •  He'll video-shoot himself capturing it later, then video-shoot the playback with additional inane commentry.

    Problem is the cropping.  Inline it says "If you have questions about your order, we're happy".

    I took a screenshot and saved it as a png. Is that better, Mr. Extension Snob?

    The lossless compression of PNG is perfect to demonstrate the damage caused by the lossy compression of JPEG. However it is likely that if you used the PRINT SCREEN button to take the screen shot you injected a BMP in the chain of evidence, so it's all in vain.

    Cropping is dependent upon your browser width.

    On this widescreen netbook I get a bit more, but I either right-click and do "show image" or right+left to use ImageZoom.

    Cropping is TRWTF.  On a "normal" website, there'd be a scrollbar I could use to look at the right-side fringe.

    On this widescreen netbook I get a bit more, but I either right-click and do "show image" or right+left to use ImageZoom.

    On this widescreen notebook I prefer to keep my browser a bit less than the full width of the physical screen so I can see enough of the other open windows on my desktop to tell if something's going horribly wrong.  Very few websites require the entire screen width (the company that does my home insurance insists on rmaximizing the browser window -- not merely recommending that I do so, but seizing control itself -- even though there's less essential content displayed than on a typical icanhascheezburgr.com page).

    This past Christmas I bought my wife a new 24 inch monitor to replace her old 17 inch model   And I immediately noticed that she always has her browser full screen, even though half the screen in empty on most websites. I asked her why she didn't take advantage of the bigger screen to be able to see more than one thing, but she just looked at me like I was crazy.

    Oh, the amount of times I've chewed someone out for sending me a maximised-window screendump that's stupidMileage x severalParsec resolution and over 90% of it is pure whitespace, meaning the interesting stuff is crammed top-left and miniscule.

    I don't know what it is, but I rarely run any window full-screen (a few games and maybe a video player, maybe) - I don't like about the fact it could be complete obscuring something in the background. I guess this comes from having continuously-updating terminal windows monitoring server stuff, but I just feel uncomfortable about the full-screen thing.

    Don't worry, BMP is also lossless. (Although it doesn't compress very well, and often isn't compressed at all.)



  • Better now?

    The order number seems to indicate that either the vendor is very optimistic to reach millions of orders and/or very unsuccessful since they have made only 554 ones so far. Unless the number is random, or is reset every day, or is account-specific (which means snoofle is a big buyer of whatever they sell).

    Of course it has already been established that snoofle is fudging numbers in his timesheets so he is perfectly capable of forging the order number on a receipt. The circle of trust has been broken.



  • But, but, did you try calling that number? who answered?
