When Success means Failure

I got two emails yesterday from Namecheap. There was one for each domain and they both took this exact form:

** Auto-Renewal Information **

SUCCESS

I read the email and thought “Okay, so it was going to expire but it has been auto-renewed”. I knew there was cash in my Namecheap account so I thought nothing more.

Today I get two emails from Namecheap. There was one for each domain and they both took this exact form:

Dear Mark,

This notice is to inform you that one of your domains has expired. Please act fast and reactivate the domain as soon as possible.

Details of the domain are provided below.

Domain Name : domain.com
Registered on : 10/28/2006
Registered for : 8 year(s)
Expired on : 10/28/2014

What?
Yesterday’s email said the auto-renewal was SUCCESS but today the domain has expired?

I try their Live Support.
Apparently the SUCCESS means that sending me the email to remind me was a SUCCESS.
I’m told that auto-renewal was not ON so they could not have been renewed.
So why did Namecheap use the word SUCCESS?
I have no idea but apparently it’s my fault.

Oddly though I have no idea why.

I have 2 .io domains with Gandi.net so maybe I should move there.

Russell Brand is a

He told Evan Davis: “I don’t want to look at a graph, mate. I ain’t got time for a bloody graph… This is the kind of stuff that people like you use to confuse people like us.”

i100

So Russell Brand is too stupid to understand a graph? Or does he just act like a window-licker to try and garner votes for the “revolution”?

Nope. The simple fact is that this guy is a phag*.

Believe him and you need locking up as well.

Red Ed has to go

Ed Miliband’s leadership of the Labour party is under renewed pressure as sources close to Johann Lamont, who dramatically quit as Scottish leader on Saturday, claimed he banned her for a year from condemning the bedroom tax while he made his mind up on it.
Guardian

What the hell? There was never, even for a minute, anything remotely close to ANY justification for the bedroom tax. That Ed wanted to ponder for WHOLE DAMN YEAR just shows how incompetent this wanker is.
Original-Labour


I do not believe in Ed Milliband’s version.

The corrupt French

The UK has been told it must pay an extra £1.7bn (2.1bn euros) towards the European Union’s budget because the economy has performed better than expected in recent years.

Under the new calculations, the UK and the Netherlands are both being asked to pay more, while France and Germany are both set to receive rebates.
BBC

Sooner we get out the damn EU the better. That France are paying less just cannot be a surprise – there is a higher chance that turkeys would vote for Christmas.

Why should the UK stay in a corrupt club that for the 19th year in a row cannot get their accounts approved?

Looks good to me.

Inbox: Google owns my life.

Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters.
Larry’s Propaganda Spokesman

Oh just fuck off will you. The only “something new” created is a way to suck even more user information in to feed this advertising company need to know more so they can pack your eyes with even more ads.

“When you start using Inbox, you’ll quickly see that it doesn’t feel the same as Gmail—and that’s the point.”
The point is that they don’t want you to feel like you are being data-mined.

Please – are you so stupid to fall for this?
