Twitter Down Again???

Posted by midnightcraz on May 30, 2008

Twitter wont let any of my Apps work? (Twhirl and Twitteroo) Twitter wont let them update.

Twitters Response is “The API limit is still being kept at 30 requests per hour to help us stabilize the service for everyone. Some folks will get “rate limit exceeded” error if you use API clients that request data from us at a higher rate. Please reconfigure them appropriately for the time being.

The API limit is still being kept at 30 requests per hour?’ My Twhirl is set to update every 5 min (12 times an hour) and I still get a “rate limit exceeded error”

Twhirl gets the “rate limit exceeded error” after 3 Updates and Twitteroo can’t even start because Twitter wont even let it update the first time?

Twitter is Slowly Killing Itself!!

We are still getting those “Whale Signs” saying “Twitter is Over Capacity, too many Tweets.”

How long can this go on before everyone switches to Pounce or Jaiku?

Twitter blames its users

Posted by midnightcraz on May 30, 2008

It’s so sad to watch a business make so many bad decisions like this one is doing. Right now a pretty significant part of Twitter is down. Track isn’t on. IM isn’t on. Other parts of the service are giving me tons of whale photos that say something is technically wrong.

Twitter is Down Again!!

Posted by midnightcraz on May 28, 2008

Twitter is over capacity. Too many Tweets! It is like MSN Messenger saying too many IM‘s.. Or your Cell Phone Company telling you “ We’re down right now because there are too many Text Messages..” Gees!!!

Twitter’s response was “ We’re currently getting a flood of messages from our SMS provider, who was having issues earlier. Please hold on while we weather the storm! “

The problem is they are Down All The Time here lately.. And they always come up with these Pity Excuses like they make things better?

If they are having Money Problems a few Google Adds placed on everyone’s home page would generate some Revenue? That’s not a Problem obviously or they would be all over that, you would think?

Oh, well they are just Shooting themselves in the foot, because all they are doing is driving people to Jaiku (Which I am sure Google Loves.) and Pounce.

Twitter’s Down Time is Ridicules!!

Hair patrol: La. barber ticketed for Monday work

Posted by midnightcraz on May 27, 2008

HOUMA — Police in this town wouldn’t cut a break for a barber who ran afoul of an obscure law barring him from working Sundays and Mondays.

Clyde Scott had opened his shop May 19 just to trim up a few students getting ready for their graduation ceremony when an officer gave him a citation.

A law on the books in Houma for decades bars barbers from working Sundays, Mondays, any of several holidays and even the day after Labor Day.

“I didn’t know it existed,” said Scott, 32, who has owned Clippas barbershop for about two years. “It’s crazy.”

Parish Council Clerk Paul Labat said he didn’t know exactly how long the law has been on the books, but that it dates to the years before the parish and city governments merged in 1981. “It’s still an active law,” he told The Courier of Houma.

District Attorney Joe Waitz Jr. won’t be prosecuting the case. In fact, he’s asking the parish council to repeal the law as unconstitutional.

“It’s our job to prosecute criminals, not barbers,” he said.

Life Lock ID theft protection firm sued

Posted by midnightcraz on May 18, 2008

I wonder if he got the $1 million dollars Guarantee every time his Identity was Stolen?

For a time, the ads were everywhere on TV and radio, the ones with the head of a security company brazenly challenging would-be thieves to try to steal his identity.

Richard Todd Davis, CEO of LifeLock Inc., was so confident in his company’s ability to protect his identity that he publicly revealed his Social Security number: 457-55-5462.

But according to a new class-action lawsuit filed last week in Jackson County, LifeLock’s identity theft protection services were so inept that Davis’ personal information was stolen repeatedly.

“While LifeLock has only publicly acknowledged that Davis’ identity was compromised on one occasion, there are more than 20 driver’s licenses that have been fraudulently obtained [using his personal information],” the suit states.

“Furthermore, a simple background check performed using Davis’ Social Security number reveals that his entire personal profile has been compromised to the extent that the birth date associated with his Social Security number is Nov. 2, 1940, which would [inaccurately] make Davis 67 years old.

“The lawsuit maintains that LifeLock, which claims on its Web site to be “the industry leader in the rapidly growing field of Identity Theft Protection,” made false and misleading claims in its multimillion-dollar ad campaign about the level of protection it provides.

“Through its advertisements, LifeLock misrepresents and assures consumers that it can protect against all types of fraud including, without limitation, computer hacking, password theft and other noncredit-related theft,” the suit reads.

But LifeLock doesn’t protect against many forms of identity theft, according to the lawsuit.

Connecticut boy takes off Jersey after 4 yrs

Posted by midnightcraz on May 6, 2008

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Finally, David Witthoft shunned his Brett Favre jersey for the first time in 1,581 days.

The Ridgefield, Conn. boy, 12, wore the No. 4 jersey every day since receiving it as a gift for Christmas in 2003. David’s father, Chuck Witthoft, said Monday that his son’s last day wearing the jersey was April 23 — his 12th birthday.

Witthoft conceded his son was starting to become more concerned about his appearance after the jersey barely came down to his belt line.
