21545Yahoo Groups: excuses and suckage.
- Oct 7, 2006I don't know if anyone else views the mailing list via the Yahoo ML
website (I don't like floods of emails in my Outlook Express. With
the website I can just click on emails whose title grabs my
attention)... but Yahoo have definitely instituted a "we want you to
go away" policy.
Y'see, you have to login to Yahoo, and like any logins it keeps you
logged in for a certain ammount of time. Usually until you clear out
your browser's cookie cache. NOW it is different. Now Yahoo logs you
out in 24hrs max, and after that it will ask you to login when you
visit the site again.
Ah, but what if I visit within 24hrs? Won't that reset the clock?
Well... no. It is a hard set maximum time limit, and even if you
visit 23hrs 55m later, it will prompt for your login details again in
Me, I use Firefox. I have a folder of Morning bookmarks and Evening
bookmarks (with Yuricon in both). That way I just click on Open All
Bookmarks, and every single webpage will load, and I can just sit
back, relax, and mouse-click-close each website I go through. NOW, I
must sit up and enter details on the keyboard. Every time. Yes, that
is WAY too much effort.
...which is why from now on I'll be checking out the ML once a week or
so. Or whenever I can be bothered logging in. It happens.
All this means is that I may not reply to certain threads until maybe
several days later when everyone's moved on. Naturally, if I ever
find goodies that are scan-worthy, I'll be posting it that very night.
I just won't be up to date on current events, is all.
Which means less snarky replies to Erica's posts. This is a good
Just letting ya know.
(Oh, and I didn't get past episode 4 of Kashimashi, by the way. I
just couldn't be bothered watching any more. I found it boring as
hell. Not a confession, since I don't feel bad about it. All the
Yuri in the world don't make a bad show good. It's can't be that I
have high standards, since the following pic STILL makes me laugh.) ^__^
