Same goes for Google.

If this happened on renewal, means the customers who explicitly asked for Privacy protection didn't receive that service. Shouldn't Google at least refund all the customers the privacy protection fee because Google failed to provide the service it charged customers for?

EDIT: I understand that bugs are unavoidable but Google should be bearing the cost of its bugs. Google should volunteer the refund of $6 X 300,000 (approx. 1.8M dollars) not including negligence penalty of course.

I had some domains that fell under this bug. Google has paid my registration on the domains for an additional year, more than the price of the privacy service.

Thus effectively locking you into their service for another year.

"Sorry about the rat feces in your soup, here's a coupon for another free visit."

-----


Isn't that the point of any company who goes out of their way to correct a mistake?

Are you arguing you'd rather not have them attempt to fix the problem?

-----


He's arguing that customers don't have to be satisfied with letting the offending party decide what "making the victim whole" looks like. Which is true.

-----


Well the cost for the user of fixing it is to move to a new address.

So google hasn't even paid 1/100 of 1 % of the true cost.

-----


He is not locked, he can certainly transfer his domain any time.

Well, if rat feces appeared in the soup because rats chewed their way to the kitchen through the wall from neighbour's basement and you like this restaurant for their quality service and food, then I think you'd like to accept such coupon after they fixed up that hole in a wall and dropped rat poison into the cellar.

-----


Why were you using it, BTW?

-----


That's what I was wondering, but I _think_ it sounds like they weren't charged either, past the first year.

> However, due to a software defect in the Google Apps domain renewal system, eNom's unlisted registration service was not extended when your domain was renewed.

I'm not sure if this means they were charged for something they didn't receive, or if they simply weren't charged -- their subscription to the 'unlisted registration service' was not renewed.

This does seem to be a pertinent point, that the OP doesn't really clarify.

Could you please elaborate on time speed up or slow down? Or if you could refer me to some reading material? It's an interesting problem and I'd love to deep dive into it.

Parallel construction is a great way to bypass the trivialities like constitution and law.

It's funny ("funny") how much police work operates like how I wrote papers in high school.

Write it from one (possibly unapproved, but convenient) source, find citations for various passages in several books after it's done, mostly by using the index to find exactly what's needed to avoid needing to read more than a couple paragraphs of each book, until the "minimum sources" number is hit.

Websockets were mentioned in the blog post. Has proxygen been deployed with websockets at facebook scale? How much support for websockets is there in the opensourced proxygen?

wrong thread

I didn't even realize that the page was scrollable. And, it's broken for me too. Latest FF on Mac OSX.

Usage in US was hoax. Jenkem isn't.

Why does it matter if it was written by Schizophrenic or by a dozen monkeys jumping on the typewriter? Does it have merit or not? Is the content of any value? Is it a well-thought schema for keeping journals?

My assessment: I'd read a couple of chapters and it seems more complicated than necessary.

-----


Isn't it also a false dilemma? I'd be lost in my thoughts and will shock myself just for the kick of it too, maybe as a curiosity or maybe in a masochistic way.
