Flop Ya Mac Out casually observes that John Gruber‘s latest batch of t-shirts default to ‘Guy XL’ when one places an order.
One can rest assured that when Flop Ya Mac Out releases t-shirts, upon ordering, they’ll be defaulting to ‘Ladies Tight Fit.’
Horses for courses, people. Horses for courses.
Full disclosure: Flop Ya Mac Out owns Daring Fireball t-shirt stock.
We love you, John.

Damn it! To register root.me from Godaddy for a minimum two years is AU$104.84!
Time’s running out to register a “dot me”, so I guess I’ll have to point ladies I fancy to some other URL to make a sweet proposition to love…
Just givin’ Firefox 3 beta 4 a whiz around the track, and Gmail was being really unresponsive for me. So I did what any ‘experienced computer mechanic’ would do, and gave the page a few heart felt clicks with the mouse. That didn’t yield any results I wanted it to, but something unfamiliar and rather peculiar appeared from ‘out of the cloud’…
I don’t have the Google Talk client installed, so I Googled around to find out if this was a new feature or just an anomoly, but within two searches the only relevant results that came up were this this article which showed a different implementation of the inbuilt call feature, and this other one talking about the possibility of what I saw, coming soon.
Nothing happened when i pressed the new buttons of the box that sat bottom left in the web browser, and refreshing the page got rid of it.
Rather random, but perhaps I got a sneak peek at how the call function is going to integrated into the ‘chat’ box (on the left), when you click on a contact. Is this news? Or have others seen this too?
Feel free to speculate what the music symbol and purple circle are all about…
Checking out the features of the upcoming OS X Leopard on my iPhone this morning whilst still in bed. Went to open up another page from a link using the great Open In New Tab bookmark and got an unexpected alert message.
It went something like, “You cannot open more than eight pages in Safari. Go use a proper computer to get the most full Internet browsing experience”.
Well i didn’t know there was such a restriction. And why?
Does it slow down Safari if you have too many pages open at once? Does it make Safari or even the whole iPhone unstable?
Perhaps the number eight is simply Steve Jobs favourite number. Or the number of days one of Steve Jobs weeks contains.
As I hear it, Myspace is old hat, and Facebook is where it’s at. Who am I to contradict? Yesterday I set myself up a nice little account, added my photo and began the laborious task of wasting time.
My first faux-pas was that I inadvertently invited my entire Gmail address book to be my friend. Yes. Friends. Work colleagues. People who I sent hate mail to and maintained their address ‘for the record’. Everyone.
Oh well, I’ll just retract those invites won’t I?
Nope. No can do, says Facebook.
So I delete my account and make a new one, to find that Facebook is yet again one step ahead, and has kindly preserved all my settings and pending friend requests. Super.
I contacted Facebook about this and will report on my findings. In the meantime, I guess I’m just going to have to keep a close eye on that ‘friend’ list!
I am a little amazed at how much is tracked by this thing: appearances in other people’s photos, how I met people, what I say about them. How gay I am or aren’t.
I get a little freaked out by all this, so I’ve been hunting through the privacy options, turning pretty much everything to off. I found a fantastic little article called How to use Facebook without loosing your job, all about protecting your privacy on Facebook, which that I found rather enlightening. Do check it out!
And I’m of course not saying that I’m anti-sharing. I just don’t want freaks and future-employers seeing my nudie runs.
Full disclosure: Jason has never nudie-ran.
Update: Facbook has this to say about my pradicament:
“Unfortunately there is no way to retract a friend request. In circumstances where you may have invited a person who you would not like to become your friend, your first option is to remove the person from your friend list as soon as they accept your request.”
Hats off to Facebook for that nugget of a policy.
