Frugal Friday's TPS Report: Shirred Dolman Sleeve Tops
I think you have to be logged in, but it won’t show your real name associated with your pin. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see a button in the top left: Edit. If you click on that, you will see a blue pin icon at the top of the map. Click on that and then click where you want your pin. At that point you can just put your handle or an anonymous #, and as far as i can tell it doesn’t show your real name anywhere.
Ooops! I lied! I don’t see my own name on my pin, but i do see other people’s names on their pins. Hmm. Maybe if you want to add a pin anonymously, ask here for someone to create a pin in your area, and then you can just add a # to the comment box anonymously? I don’t know… this is a good point tho for ppl who have their real name attached to their google account. ;o\
There must be some way to avoid it, because I do see some pins that don’t have a “last updated by” user attached to them. I’m not sure how, though. Maybe it times out after a certain amount of time has passed? It shows only your first name, unless you don’t have a name associated with your profile, in which case it will show your full e-mail address — so be careful if your e-mail address includes your last name and you want to remain anonymous.
I have a shiny new “Anastasia” gmail account, now. :)
On the subject of browsers, anyone like Google Chrome? It was auto-installed on my laptop yesterday (at least, that’s when a popup informed me.) I had the option to uninstall it, and I did, and my Internet Explorer is working better today than it has for a while. I wonder if that is because my IE had been hijacked by Chrome and I liberated it.
Also, I am a heavy user of Google Calendar. Recently, when I open my calender in IE, a popup informs me that I am trying to use Google Calendar with an “unsupported” browner and I can hit OK to read only (not helpful) or “cancel to continue loading Google Calendar and hope for the best!”). That’s an exact quote, including the exclamation point, from the popup. Really? Google Calendar won’t support IE, a major player in the browser market? That seems like a stupid choice by Google.
Anyone know about this stuff?
Ugh, this reminded me that I actually spoke too soon saying I never use IE. I just started using a doc review website that requires IE to log in. Part of the appeal of it vs. the native programs hosted on our firm server was the ability to log in from home without going through my firm’s slow remote server and even slower doc review software. Now I’ll still have to remote in because there’s no way I’m installing Windows on my personal Mac.
Honestly, who still designs web-based programs that can only be used on IE? When I did VITA in law school, the tax software the IRS provided was IE only and it meant we only had about 3 people who could prepare (vs. doing mostly pointless intake interviews) because very few students had PCs.
Just want to vent. I ordered a sweater on Valentine’s Day from a small chain store and was told it was out of stock but shipping 2/28. Haven’t seen anything or heard from anyone since. So emailed the company. Their response to me this morning:
Thank you for contacting us! I am sorry to tell you that the back ordered
cardigan is sold out. We expected to receive returns in perfect condition from
the holidays to fulfill back orders requested by customers. Sadly, they sold out
and we are unable to ship it to you. You were never charged for this cardigan
and the order was canceled.
Wtf? No email to tell me it was cancelled? And this was what they planned to do to fulfill. It’s more than two months (!) after the holiday. And the sweater wasn’t deepy discounted or anything–it was $100. Maybe I’ve gotten spoiled by places like Nordstrom and Zappos for their great service.
I guess there are worse service experiences though, right?
Anyone want to do a round of What Are You Wearing, for this lovely (casual or not) Friday? Everyone who hates them, feel free to skim ;)
I’m wearing my trusty J. Crew Tippi sweater in flame, with Urban skinny jeans and white/black/yellow/purple/turquoise/lime striped ballerinas. I’m channeling my inner Betty Draper and wearing a single strand of pearls–irrationally, I feel like I’m playing 50′s housewife dress-up every time I wear them; bangs are corralled with a bobby pin ornamented with a white lacquer cherry blossom.
Oooh World! Super Jealous. I made it to State 3 times, but never any farther.
I’m trying to remember what the Problems were that I worked on, and the only one I remember for certain had to do with Time Travel. (We created a HUGE book that was the time machine AND the backdrop of the different scenes.)
There was also a skit involving soccer-playing fruit, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what the...
