As you know, I offer GMail invitations.
Now two things I have figured out: Gmail addresses you generate now have @googlemail.com and I have got now 100 invites to giveaway instead of “only” 50! 🙂
Well, after months of a disaster because my new cable ISP (before I used DSL) sucked so much (please read all about this at my previous posts about my internet connection, it wasn’t funny anymore!
But now, they have lowered prices, so I re-signed up with 4000/512 internet!
WOW! What a download rate!
Now I reach the boarder where some download servers cannot offer the speed I could handle!
Yesterday, my Logitech USB 30 Headset broke a second time, again broken cable.
Now, in Germany you have 2 years warranty, but in the 2nd year the costumer has to prove by law that it was broken because of technical error and not that the costumer himself broke it.
Logically, that is impossible to prove as a costumer, so no company, trader or mail trader cares
You get 2 years full warranty anyway.
Except in this case I received an email from the mail trader saying I am 6 weeks over the first year and so they refuse taking the headset back.
I was calling them, and after passing the waiting loop I have got the same ass that wrote that email, on the phone.
he explained to me the law (which I already was aware of).
So, I was calling Logitech directly.
Which said of course they give me 2 years warranty like anybody else does.
So I had to break apart the microphone and usb plug and send it to Logitech which is in Switzerland!
So, I wrote an angry email to the mail trader.
I received an email back saying sorry for the wrong information from his co-worker.
of course they send damaged stuff to the manufactor as every mail trader does (for free as the law tells).
I get my 4 € back for the postage to Logitech in Switzerland.
but still, they are not-so-nice.
I couldn’t believe, they refuse to give me warranty and discuss with me about a small tiny paragraph in the law.
logically, that is impossible to prove as a costumer, so no company, trader or mail trader cares.
you get 2 years full warranty anyway.
Especially since nowadays you have so much mail traders, making an exception from the “common way” will cost you costumers. Well, especially this makes the behaviour of that co-worker of the mail trader non-understandable for me.
A while ago, I wrote about the Digital Lifestyle Award voting and amazingly enough ICQ reached the 2nd place!
My personal congratulations to ICQ for getting 2nd place for Communication Tools in the Digital Lifestyle Award!

Skype took first place.
Gmail, imap. Does Gmail support IMAP? (http://gmail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=10339)
Gmail doesn’t currently support IMAP access. As part of our ongoing commitment to give our users easy access
to their email, we have introduced POP access. We look forward to announcing more features as they become available.
Q-Why this petition?
Google has recently provided POP3 access to Gmail.
While POP3 is fine, many would prefer IMAP support.
We are hopeful that Google will provide IMAP as a free or paid service.
Q-Why is IMAP better than POP3 for Gmail?
Gmail offers 2+GB of space. In 2 GB you can store 120,000 – 500,000 emails.
IMAP maintains the folders created in your webmail account while POP3 does not.
There are no folders in gmail, instead there are “labels” but they serve
the same purpose*.
Can folders and labels be implemented in a IMAP mail system?
Fastmail has done just that.
If you use IMAP currently, you will appreciate IMAP’s benefits with gmail.
So, go ahead and sign the petition.
However it’s not totally impossible as somebody made it possible! 🙂 You can read about this here!
After 2 1/2 years I am this year again able to upgrade my PC.
Since I am a Management Assistant in Informatics (PC repair, building, helpdesk, etc), I put together PCs myself since year 2001. 🙂
this is why I wrote support emails to MSI, because I needed a BIOS update.
So following the link, you will see what board.
As case, I thought of this one. It’s pretty pretty, don’t you think? =)
Also it seems to be _very hard_ to find PCIe compatible power supplies. Well, mine isn’t. 🙁 Plus it’s very hard to find in this country adapters for PCIe! 🙁
So finally I found some trader that has them 🙂
Furthermore Silicon Image promised to deliver me a Windows XP 64bit driver for their external controller. that is good, because yet I didn’t buy this OS anyway. 🙂 but soon will!
I will keep you updated!
