It’s definitely not a life crisis or emergency and may be something secluded to us here in the Asian region (oh, did I ever mention Asia will represent MOST OF THE WORLD soon if not already?), but it’s annoying. I’ve been waking up a bit early and going to sleep later most days since getting back from a quick trip abroad. My body clock isn’t back to normal, but I also have a million things on my mind and feel like I need to do. Anyhoo, in the midst of all the stress, I have to admit facebook is a nice stress release. Did I say “stress release?”
Today it’s a STRESSOR instead of a stress relief.
I’ve tried to log in for the past hour and all I get is a page that hangs. You can see from these images that I have the hourglass icon because it’s hanging or the page displays improperly because I can’t get anything back from the Facebook servers.
I guess the post I wrote a few months ago is finally coming true…or at least more signs point to it.
(USUALLY this shows up on the right hand side, but resolved to the left and basically in a broken page)
Can you imagine your facebook account shut down after years of uploading all your precious memories? Honestly, I also feel like Facebook is responsible for me being able to get in touch with so many past classmates and finding friends I haven’t talked to in years. How about all those chats via the walls? It’s like all those funny conversations basically disappeared?
Well, it may be a possibility. Facebook has grown too big for it’s britches. In this Businessweek article, Facebook is reported desperately seeking cash to finance it’s operations. At one time, the wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg was compared to William Gates, but now he may just become another dot bomb CEO if his management skills don’t start to step up. Perhaps it’s not just him that’s the question though at the company. I wouldn’t honestly want to be the Chief Operations Officer. The COO may be blamed for the lack of foresight in the traffic. I remember my days in Doubleclick where that job was literally impossible. It’s so hard to predict and the hardware costs are enormous. The bandwidth issues, the storage issues, the database issues… I would be stressed out. Continue reading

The language, the offbeat content and quotes like this:
“…we’re going to be a family if I have to kill all of you!” by the lead character “Nancy Botwin” or “Shane goes on a paint rampage. Get’s suspended. Two of you ditch school to fuck in my guestroom,” after accidentally walking in on her son & dysfunctional gf are why I’m watching seasons 1 through 4 when I can. The first episode of Weeds previews enough good stuff including the walking in on her teenage son, blunt racist sarcasm, adultery, homosexuality and of course the drug dealing perfect suburbia mom who knows how to wield the “f” word better than most gangsters.
My life these days in a sentence: Work, my boys/family, emails, SEO Testing/Experimenting, Facebook, OCW classes when I can, Weeds & a periodic flick or two here and there.
Pretty sad, eh?
Trying to just say “Happy birthday” on someone’s wall today, I was told “You are not permitted to do …” WTF? Can’t write on a wall? Does Facebook now give people the power to prevent others from writing on their wall?
I was doing something else on the website & was given the same message of not being able to do something or not having the permissions. I wonder if this is part of their new “redesign”. Interesting…o.k. it’s not.
Hey (Brandon)-(actually, I did fill in the Brandon part…)

Like I said “porcupines,” “Korean women” and many others like “how to say hello (or thank you) in Korean” are dominating the traffic on the blog these days. For a snippet of the rest of the popular posts, check out the following WordPress stats for The Real “South” Korea: Continue reading

“Quietly, Facebook restored message capability to groups over 1000. This means, at least until we hit 5000 members, that we can send out a couple of messages! Thank you, Facebook.”
So, Facebook doesn’t give groups other than popular ones the ability to message others or should we say “spam others?”
That’s an interesting “Nazi” like request. Rather, who says you MUST be one way or another? It’s YOUR option to join facebook and it’s your option to write as you will. Why is now required that people become more grammatically correct when they write on Facebook? So, they can drive more traffic and business?
