It doesn’t recognize mpg files? You have to convert your raw files to wmv? What a lame-ass piece of poo. I’m not going to convert my raw footage to wmv, just so the piece of junk called “windows movie maker” can crash constantly, and then fail to output my movie to a viewable format. but that’s another story.

Many people have a frustrating time when trying to use Twitter on Internet Explorer and Firefox, due to a bug on the Twitter Website that has apparently been ignored by the Twitter Development Team. When attempting to “Tweet to” another user the browser hangs and you get a “script running error.” Stopping the script has not effect, and from that point on you are unable to Tweet.
Why has this bug been persistent for so long without being fixed? My guess is that power-users don’t use the Twitter Website, but other tools, like TweetDeck or Hootsuite. The actual live person who tries to use Twitter is probably a small enough percentage to ignore. How does Twitter make money in the first place? I have no idea. Having some frustrated users is probably not hitting them in the pocketbook, and that’s what really counts’ isn’t it?
The only answer that I have found is to use Google Chrome. I’m able to tweet away without my browser hanging. If you need to use multiple browsers to access multiple accounts, I suggest sticking to Chrome and using the Swap My Cookies Add-on to change from account to account. Or you can hold your breath until Twitter fixes their website.
I just made the changes required by Google Apps to get my email off of Postini, and I can not receive email from hotmail:
Arrival-Date: Tue, 19 Jun 2012 15:12:13 -0700
Diagnostic-Code: smtp;550-(snt0-omc4-s14.snt0.hotmail.com) [188.8.131.52]:24085 is currently not
550 permitted to relay through this server.
A lot of other people have been having the same problem for at least 3 years now:
This has been a known problem since 2009. Basically, Hotmail tries to send the message based on the A record (website), not the MX records (mail server), so if you don’t have those at the same IP address, the mail won’t go to the right place. For some reason the problem has been reported predominantly with Google Apps and sometimes Gmail accounts.
Of course, as everyone who has tried to get support from Microsoft or Google, you ain’t getting it, puny human. Their forums are sometimes a place where we idiots may work out the problems for ourselves. Anyway, I’m hoping another user who is smarter than I will provide an answer. Here’s to hoping.
