SkypeIn and Voicemail subscriptions expanded to a week

I just received an email from Skype saying sorry for their recent outage and to calm me down they expanded my SkypeIn and Voicemail subscriptions expanded to a week!

At least something positive out of this! It did for sure cost them some customers anyway (the outage lasted 2 1/2 days!).

News at GMail

Gmail allows now to have GMail’s interface in 41 language.

Also, now you are allowed to upload attachments up to 20 MB. Quoting:

“What’s the maximum attachment size?

With Gmail, you can send and receive messages up to 20 megabytes (MB) in size. However, the precise amount allowable will depend on the attachment.

When you add an attachment, the size of a file may increase because transport encodings are automatically added. (Transport encodings are the information that allows your message to be safely sent and read.)

This means that in some cases, attachments that are 17 to 20MB in size may push the total message size above 20MB. When this happens, Gmail displays a warning that your message exceeds the 20MB limit.”

Happy Birthday Blogger? Nah, because I don’t like you anymore!

Blogger celebrates today its 8th birthday. Is this a reason to celebrate? No!

Thanks to everyone who has supported us over the past four-fifths of a decade, and thanks especially to you for all the blogs. Come back later this afternoon for a present.

Thanks not for ignoring all bugs and bug reports I sent in since August 2006.

You have no idea how much I hate this since you had been really coolk with me before and always helpful and caring (and I think you for this) but since September 2006, I am ignored, and the bugs are really heavy and nobody cares.

I even wrote to your personal email addresses and got ignored too, even writing a comment in your blog gave no result.

If there is any soul in the Blogger Staff who is willing to fix all the bugs in Blogger, let me know!

Skype with Fax… errm, Fax with Skype! PamFax!

Like Ike writes, it’s now possible to send fax through Skype, thanks to the Skype Plugin PamFax.

System requirements:

Windows 2000, XP and Vista

Requires Skype for Windows 3.0 or better.

However according to PamFax:

“Currently does not work for sending faxes from U.S.A. and Canada (sending to recipients in U.S.A. and Canada does work).”

Currently does not work for sending faxes from U.S.A. and Canada (sending to recipients in U.S.A. and Canada does work)? Bad πŸ™ I wonder why. Will try to find out maybe.

Skype – A questionnaire

According to Ike’s Blog there is a student who started a questionnaire about Skype.

Quote from the Skype forum:

“Dear Skype user,

I am conducting a questionnaire as part of my master’s dissertation to understand Skype users attitudes, behavioural intentions and their response to influence of other users or experts in relation to the Internet telephone Skype.

Your opinion is important in enabling me to obtain as full an understanding as possible of this topic.

It is a largely multiple choice based questionnaire, further instructions will be included in the questionnaire. The information you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence. You will notice that you are not asked to include your name and address anywhere on the questionnaire.

The questionnaire should take you about ten minutes to complete.

The findings from your questionnaire and others will be used as the main data set for my dissertation and they also enable me to give future suggestions for Skype in issues covered in the questionnaire: how Skype can improve the service for your benefit.

The questionnaire can be found on the following address:

http://www.eformular.com/maarjagavronski/skypefinal.html

I hope you will find completing the questionnaire enjoyable.

Thank you very much for your help!”
