only wanna be with you

Hootie and the Blowfish - Only Wanna Be With You (pops)

Special Weekend Edition!

Okay, it's only to make up for missing my usual post, but still, shouldn't you feel special? I took time out of my busy weekend (*stifled laugh*) to post, just for you, my loving audience.

Speaking of which, the only comment I've gotten lately was from a corporate drone at PodBridge, who responded to my complaint about their product with a quasi-form-letter.

That tells me several things.

One, they're worried about their image enough to scour the 'net looking for complaints.

Two, they have enough complaints to even have a form letter.

Three, they actually have employees who would rather respond to complaints instead of, you know, actually doing something about them. Like updating their product to work with Firefox's latest build. The browser covers around fifteen percent of the total market, according to some recent statistics. I'd say people familiar enough with computers to use PodBridge would have a much higher Firefox usage rate. Firefox gets updated regularly. In order to keep up, you have to do the same. If you're not prepared to offer maximum conpatibility, please be so kind as to remove your product from the market. M'kay?

Four, my webpage is apparently popular enough to warrant recognition when I complain about something. Yay me!

Now I should probably complain about something else to see if I can actually get something important done.

Should I criticize the war? No, too obvious, and I've already got my little image on the sidebar doing all my talking for me. Plus, I can't think of anyone who's gone up against the military-industrial complex lately and won. So that's out.

Should I try to get a recall on dangerous products marketed to children? No, Ralph Nader's already got that covered. Plus, I don't want to become a potential Green Party candidate. So that's out.

I know! I should rally the masses around something that is really important.

Bring back Sheriff Lobo.

I implore you, Viacom, bring back the hilarious comedy stylings of Sheriff Lobo, and all will be forgiven.

(And Mr. Government, please ignore that little remark about the military-industrial complex. I hear Guantanamo's nice this time of year, but I'd rather not find out for myslef. We cool?)
