Google Music

I received an invite to the Google Music Beta. As I signed up, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that based on the type of music I like, I would get a number of free songs preloaded to my account (in my case about 228 songs as I like most music). Everything seemed to be going well as was listening today, but I started to get some repetition due to the size of the library. I figured I would upload some more music to alleviate this situation. So I downloaded ad installed the Music Manager provided to do so. And now I'm irritated. On attempting to log in I get this:

This is not acceptable. How in the holy name of fuck does this happen?

  • I'm currently on my work laptop. Which only I have the password to.
  • Even if I wasn't the only one with a password, I'm the only person who uses this laptop.
  • I just got in to this two days ago. When the fuck would anyone else have had time to use my work computer to sign up for the fucking beta.

Not only that, but when I click on the link for help, there is nothing that pertains to this issue in the documentation.

Fuck this and fuck Google. I'm going back to Amazon Cloud Player.

UPDATE: Email from Google

Thank you for your note.

We've isolated a compatibility issue with virtual machines and are working on a fix. At the moment, simply having a virtual machine installed can prevent access to the Music Manager. The VM doesn't need to be running to cause the error.

Fuck Winter

I fucking hate winter and everything about it. Does anyone know how often airlines delay and cancel flights due to bad weather? More often than you'd think.

Ingenious Design

Alright. It's been a while since my last post, but I figured I should write something. So, last week, my littlest daughter spilled a drink into my keyboard. I was able to grab the drink before too much spilled, but it was enough to fry the bottom row of keys(i.e. space, ctrl, alt....) and the B and V keys. I figured there was just some liquid in the keyboard I wasn't able to soak up and it was interfering with the electronics, so I spent 6 hours carefully popping out the keys from my keyboard and drying the inside of it. This is what it looked like.

Needless to say, it didn't work. So, it was off to eBay to find a new keyboard after Acer Customer Support informed me of the $199 it would cost to have them fix it. Twenty dollars and three days later, I had my new keyboard in hand and fixed my computer.

Finally, one last picture for Vanlandw.

Told you I'd get one.
