Scalzi’s Best Of “Whatever”, 2012
Calories in, calories out
I just wanted to put on paper (so to speak 🙂 some thoughts on CI/CO. If you’ve read GCBC none of this will be new.
“The Catholic Bishops Lobby Against Legislation to Protect Children”
SiriusXM continues to amaze …
… with their stupidity, I mean.
I have a SiriusXM account. I want to “listen online”. I reset my password, ’cause I couldn’t be bothered to look it up in the other room. I try to log in with the password that I just reset. It doesn’t work. I reset it again. I try to log in again. It still doesn’t work. I look it up in the other room and try that. The old one still works.
I don’t know if they have some latency between resetting the password and when it becomes valid (which is dumb), or if they have different credentials for you “SiriusXM account” vs. your “listen online” account (which is dumb). But if the latter, what is ESPECIALLY dumb, is that the “reset your password” link on the “listen online” login page RESETS THE WRONG PASSWORD.
Did I mention that this was especially dumb?
Spammers ruin it for everyone.
I’m just a tiny blog that no one reads (except you :). And yet in the past few days I’ve started getting 10-20 trackback spams a day. So I’m disabling trackbacks. *sigh*
Tips welcome on what to do about that crap.
