Long Time No Write…

dead

It’s been a really long time since I’ve wrote anything here, wow… I haven’t been doing much, sleeping, or actually trying to sleep because I really don’t sleep anymore. A  couple or maybe a few hours each night, usually 2-3 hours if that, but it’s broken sleep and no straight through.

1-336-436-9730 Scammer

what

So 1-336-436-9730 is a scammer number. The number is fake of course as you can’t call it back and you can’t block it (on my Android anyway) as I still get a voicemail every time they call.

They have called me now 6 times in about 24 hours.

Bad Company Asked Me to Remove My Review from Amazon…

pyruscale9

I’ve been reviewing products since 2004, maybe even 2003 and I’ve done thousands of them and every once in a while you run across bad companies. I get emails all the time asking me to review products and the majority of them I ignore or tell them I’m just not interested as I only review things I have a need for or things that I would actually buy, or consider buying.

I Need a New Car…

what

So I just took my car, or actually mini-van to get inspected as we have to do here in PA every year. Well he just called me and it’s going to cost a little over $800 to get it to pass inspection. The inspection itself is $70 and the rest is to fix the things wrong with it to get it to pass inspection. Yes it’s older, a 2002 model, so I guess I should have expected some issues, but I just wasn’t expecting those issues to be that costly. I don’t even really drive it much, I only put about 2,000 miles on it since last inspection so that’s like about 170 miles per month which is nothing really when compared to how much everyone else drives especially.

It’s getting older so I see more and more issues arising as tends to happen, so I need to figure out a way to get something newer for sure but I don’t know how to do that right now. How do you make money when you can barely walk or have issues using your hands most of the time?

Oh well, my rant for the week I guess…

Netflix New Interface Redesign is Horribly Not User Friendly

netflix

I love my Netflix. I have cable, Verizon FIOS, but I can’t remember the last time I turned on the box to actually watch something. There’s never anything on and the commercials are ridiculous so most everything I watch is through Netflix. I have Amazon Prime too and I watch a few things on there that I can’t get on Netflix but I’ve got a feeling I’ll be watching it more.

I’ve been a Netflix subscriber for many years and I’ve dealt with the price increases, it’s worth it to me as I more than get my money’s worth from it.

I also dealt with the last interface update and didn’t like that one either but I got accustomed to it as they did revert my list back to the way it was originally and I could go to a page and there was everything. The last interface wasn’t that bad, at least you could go to a page for the movie or show, but now you can’t do that it seems.

This new interface is horrible, it’s dark and you can’t go to a shows page anymore.

I’ve been catching up on SHIELD and there is no page for it anymore with the episode listings. You have to actually click on it, it starts playing, you have to hit the X button up in the corner and then you’ll see sort of a list of episodes which you have to scroll through. What the hell was wrong with the old way as just having the list of episodes there for you? (oh wait I just noticed an arrow there at the bottom when you hover that opens the overview and episode listings, not exactly intuitive is it?)

What’s with all the clicking I have to do now? Before I could go to a page and there it was. Just hover over and click ‘more info’ and I was taken to the shows page with everything right there for you. Now I have to hover, click the arrow, click the episodes, click the ‘more like this’, click the details, and of course I have to click the arrows to scroll through the episodes. Who thought it was a good idea with all the clicking now? What was wrong with having everything on the same page for you to EASILY read with basically one click?! Reviews are now overlaid on the screen so more clicking there yet again. Going through it, it’s hover, click (to open/expand), click (episodes), click,click (to scroll through episodes, with more clicks for more episodes as it only shows 5 at a time ), click (to start episode), click (more like this), click (details), click (reviews), click (to close reviews), click (to close expanded view). It’s basically 10 clicks to watch a show?! Even more clicks if you want to find a certain episode to watch as the screen only shows 5 eps at a time. Who though that was good idea?

And what happened to clicking the section title on the homepage? I used to be able to click something like ‘New Releases’ or ‘Watch it Again’ and it would take me to that page so I can see them and sort them as well. Now I can only scroll through them left or right on the main page. Some of them you can click, but the ones I want to be able to click I can’t.

Who thought this new interface was a good idea?

Also the interface is broken:

broke

Where’s the rest of the screen? And no I can’t scroll anymore. That’s the sci-fi section that I sorted A-Z, so where’ the rest? It’s just cut-off, I thought there was supposed to more?!

I refreshed the page and got this:

broke2

A little more but that’s it?! It just stops at ‘Big Fish’!  Where’s the rest of the movies? Where are my movies?

I do most of my watching on my PC and it’s not exactly a mouse friendly site. It might be easier to use on a tablet, but on desktop, no it isn’t.

Also, why is it so dark? Nighttime mode I guess right?

As I said I’ve been a Netflix customer for many years and through everything I’ve dealt with it, never really thought about seriously cancelling my membership until now. This new design is just horrible and it makes the user do more work than they should have to.

Bad Hacker IP Addresses

So for the past hour or so this site has been under attack I guess you could say by hackers trying to gain access via the Admin account.

So here’s a nice little list of all the IP addresses they used. A lot of them are single attempts, but most of them are multiple attempts to gain entry into the site…. So these all could be considered bad IP addresses but I’m sure a lot of them are spoofed as well, so it’s hard to block them…
