I have been a yahoo user for over 10 years now and always been happy with them until recently. I am receiving the same damn spam message from same damn sender(s) with the same damn subjects over more than a year now. Everyday I woke up open my email to see constant 7 number in my spam box. Seriously what else a user can do other than tagging the freaking thing spam? What else do you need yahoo? I have to go and create a filter for you to just the trash the damn thing?
Here is the other deal and where the title comes from. As some of you may know, in like 4-5 years before webmasters used to ban hotmail accounts because it was so stupid, none of the posted emails made it to people's inbox not even spambox. Well most of the so called webmasters did not know what was going on so they just banned hotmail as a solution.
Now I have a small social network and a forum on this server. People gets notified by email if they choose to. Analyzing my server resources and user complaints I found out that yahoo emails always getting a 2 day defer at least! Now I have to explain tons of users why they can not recover their passwords or did not get notified although they so wanted to be. Here is the log from the mighty yahoo.
host in32.mxauth.yahoo.com [188.8.131.52]: 421 4.7.0 [TS01] Messages from
*.*.*.* temporarily deferred due to user complaints - 184.108.40.206;
Well no user with right mind will click notify me and then say this is spam! I opened the postmaster support page to see the error is not actually that but my server is always sending them stuff so they are suspicious it may be spam or bulk. Suspicious?? wtf ?? check the freaking mail contents at least huh, ever seen a 1 kbyte spam mail??
I fill in the necessary fields with all the explanations they need, send in the support ticket 14 hours later the reply comes FROM A MACHINE. Sending me the same page contents I read before filling in the ticket form, only in text format this time. Seriously yahoo, whats up with you recently? so here is my sad reply against the new winds in yahoo.
Your automated system just replied to me with the same information on the yahoo website!
As I stated before yes we have huge activity (social network) and users choose to get notified by email.
Yahoo always deferring my emails and making my mail queue amazingly long, wasting my resources.
Poeple can not recover their passwords or registration operations due to defers.
If you are going to judge my server based on its constant activities and not solve the problem then I am afraid I will have to ban yahoo email usage and notifications.
I have been a yahoo user for nearly 10 years, while people were banning hotmail I never thought I will have to ban yahoo emails one day.
And you know what is the ironi in all this? Well check out my mailbox and where the support mail from original yahoo landed while spams made their way into my inbox.
Huh you say what about hotmail? it is still a joke what about it.. good for msn only
First let me explain to you the problems of uploading and downloading as a user who does both of them alot!.
You upload some files to share with your friends, community whatever it is, post your links to your friends. Everything is fine until your hosting decides to delete them. You do not get any kind of information that your files have been deleted by them... woah thats bunch load of bs. You have to go back to your friends, websites and track down what has been deleted, who could not download what. Plus when something is wrong with your upload again you have to go back and check if everything worked out or to see feedbacks, requests. If you shared your files more than one place (thats what most of the uploaders do) well then good luck hunting down your posts in thousands of forum posts, blogs, comments. If you still have patiance for all and you reuploaded your stuff, then there goes the updating of your links in all places.
So you decided to download some files. You click on post, blog or email to get your friend's link click on the file just to see "haha we deleted the file you wanted. pwned!". More annoyingly, lets say your friend shared a game dvd. That has min of 80 parts in it or so, you download 70+ part just to see that 72nd one was deleted ages ago! Now how the hell you were suppose to know it was gone. So you begged the uploader to upload new one and he did, but you dont know it because you forgot mb you were lost in billions of posts.
I am back to my family house for a limited time and my old TV set got busted Well I don't watch TV but hey whats gonna happen to my xbox? It was CRT but colors and screen size was perfect for SD gaming and movies. Well when I was down, thanks to my friend he offered to me his new LG LCD HD TV set for my personal pleasure.
TV looks really nice. Shiny - glossy black, slim, with background color, table deck and nearly invisible speakers. Well first things firts, hooking up xbox HD is pretty easy and you have multiple of everything nearly. TV works amazing with 1080p settings with the fastest and really good looking games. I had made my visual tests on my favorite + best looking driving games. Colin McRae Dirt and Grid, both from codemasters Well after busted TV view, HD 1080p Dirt was amazing in 42 inch! Then PES 2009, Fear 2, Resident Evil and so on with perfect viewing and nice surround sound. Integrated sound system really makes this TV for HD gaming, you don't look around to hook up your 5.1's to the console. Remote was faily big for a TV but I got big hands so bigger is merrier for me . Settings and input selection was like a walk in the park.
I did not experience any of the TV flaws described in this expert review. But to be fair I never used the TV for watching TV and can not say anything - btw I have a SD satellite subscription, no sense reviewing a HD TV in a SD test. But plays most of the HD Vidoes on my hard drive perfectly. Anyways most of the expert reviews are always too technical and cruel to the product. In this case TestFreaks website and user reviews are more helpful because you got to hear the real home users opinions about the TV. I agree with the 9.0 rating. I don't have an eagle eye but I know what quality viewing is. If a product satisfies your needs more than expected, technical details are just gibberish numbers. Enjoy your TV if you buy one.
Nokia already is experimenting with the new touch screen options. Beta labs produced a nice application called handwriting calculator, it is basically what we all dreamed about. You write the equations on the paper/screen and put an equal at the end and viola application does the operations and gives you the result Even for the complicated recognitions. Here is the examples I took, sorry for the quality they are captures with Iphone camera. Lol the irony. You can install it from the Ovi Store free.
This is actually my response to a yahoo answers question.
I just got my Nokia n97 and as an Iphone 2G and 3G user. I wanna go over some aspects.
N97 is new and not many applications and games developed for it yet but it already has large list of existing symbian applications. It has free download application already and Ovi store. Filled with some nice apps already in 1 week time. Compared to the appstore which happened 1 year later (copy catting the installer - jailbreak / hack - idea ) and 1 year old. Do not expect dumb applications such as bill divider or metro maps, Nokia will say you have a mind and calculator. Iphone users are mainly dumb - me too - it spend 1 years before you can even use a IM application on it. Iphone came to this point in 2.4 years while Nokia - Symbian phones did everything for years.
As a user development part should interest you also, why? Because apple sells the Iphone SDK and training, meaning you need to pay apple in order to develop some application or game for it! While symbian is open and used for years. Anybody can do anything with it, if they set their mind to it. If you really want touch and view experience I suggest you to wait 2 more weeks and get the HTC Hero Phone. It is bringing the Android OS - developed by Google for Mobile Devices - which beats the crap out of Iphone experience. In couple years Android and Andro Phones will grow much more than Iphone closed SDK.
Touch screen is pretty accurate. You can touch with anything unlike iphone you are suppose to touch with your bare skin. Comes with its special pen, which is pretty good in handwriting. Makes writing a lot faster. Supports double clicking. Sliding, scrolling is not as fancy and smooth as Iphone. You are suppose to point click and scroll like in PC environment, not with the whole screen. N97 keyboard is nice and enough spaced to let you write fastly. Symbols and numbering options are not user friendly as IPhone's though.
Finally it made it through. Agile is on the way also

Well like after two years crappy apple finally made copy/paste into this crappy rip off device just because nokia is about to hit its answer N97 to smart phones. US does not know how to produce mobile phones anyways, if apple was in another country it would starve to death ages ago. I used to hate Microsoft but they done and are doing so much for IT world than this posers. What kind of an company only advertises by throwing mud on competitor companies and products? And what kind of an commercial ethic that country has? Stop bitching and show us what you did instead! Mann, I really hate apple. Anyhow as my hatred towards apple and its rip off products, viva la jailbreak and open source programming.
The amazing iphone dev team did it again and jailbreaked the os 3.0 after 1 day of release nearly. You can find the details and pwnage tool in their offical website http://blog.iphone-dev.org/post/126465561/trois-drei-h-rom. Ultrasn0w is on the way also which enables the software sim unlock for 3g phones. For windows users well you have tree choices.
- Download a custom build ipsw with pwnage tool and restore your iphone with it. You can find these at comments section and on some other websites via google by now.
- Use vmware and install mac OS then build your custom ipsw
- Wait for quickpwn release, which will be out by tomorrow morning.
- As of today quickpwn is still on the waiting list but iphone dev team provided a windows pwnage tool with the name Redsn0w for both windows and mac os.
Happy jailbreaking! and do not forget to buy the apps you like so they can keep on living.

Quickpwn will be coming too. Winpwn was the greatest but he gave up on the releasing, he is now providing support for iphone 3G S as of today. Maybe he will release a 3.0 jailbreak tool soon also.
