Thanks to some very stale DNS records at a partner site (they were caching the old IP address for the site and wouldn’t let it drop for anything!) we were unable to have any images show up since June 2nd. I finally dug in hard, being nearly a week later, and found someone to listen to me complain and fix the issue. Which reminds me of something that’s far too often true…

Every day when I get bored at work I start browsing around and usually end up on the Yahoo home page for a little while. What’s got me bothered is your stupid AUTOPLAY VIDEO AT HIGHEST VOLUME POSSIBLE policy. I mean c’mon, I’m trying to be discreet and shit and here you go again blasting news to the office or worse, some non-targeted commercial for tampons or something else I have no possible use for…
So — all I ask is that you identify my IP address and only play commercials that are focused soundly around beer, condoms, and breasts, or just plainly turn the sound to minimum and let me choose how loudly I want to hear things.

There is a subtle difference between sarcasm and irony.
Sarcasm: That sure is a nice question mark, Grammar Nazi #2.
Irony: Why did they misspell, “Congratulations?”
