WOW!

If this happened to I, I would not be amused. Strange bug. Obviously software, but in the calendar software. Usually bugs in calendar software gets picked up during beta testing.

Good to KNOW. I will now be even MORE hesitant about getting a Suunto watch — and right now, coincidentally, or otherwise they are having a 50% sale.

Possible Intermittent Power On Problem With Sony a65000 — Best To Keep In On ‘Airplane Mode’.

by Anura Guruge

More than one person has reported this.

It could be fixed with Firmware but we are unlikely to see a Firmware update for a few months.

Keeping it in ‘Airplane Mode’ seems to be a temporary bypass. Not a problem for I. I don’t believe in using Wi-Fi on cameras. So, whenever I can, I have my cameras on this mode.

Fuji X-Pro 2 Firmware Issue — Resetting All Custom Menu Settings …

by Anura Guruge


xpro2defect


Just happened to see this, by chance, when I was browsing through “DPReview” this morning (in my constant quest to try and stay abreast of camera news).

This flaw, which appears not to be an isolated fluke, distresses me. The Fuji X-T2 which I hope to purchase as soon as it is available will share much of the base firmware code from the X-Pro2 (as it should).

Yes, as a software programmer going back to 1969, I fully appreciate that any and all new software will have some bugs. But this, in a very basic and key function, is not acceptable. They had to have seen this during the testing. That is what bugs me? How could a global RESET like this go unnoticed when thousands of folks, inside and outside of Fuji, would have been playing with this camera as it was being developed.

Yes, of course, Fuji will release a Firmware Update to fix it — and I am surprised that they haven’t done so already. Hhhmmm.

Ironically this harks back to one of my pet themes when I was a much more active IT consultant to leading manufacturers. I would argue passionately that for reasons I could not explain the Japanese (and the Chinese) were not that great at creating software — their prowess being hardware. I think that still stands. All the major software companies — Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, eBay, PayPal — are all U.S. That is NOT a coincidence.

I will keep you posted on this X-Pro2 issue.

Given that I was a avid (and quite a good, if I may say so myself) programmer since I was 16, back in 1969,
it goes without saying that I am a great fan of Grace.

I used to teach about her in my Programming Classes. See two images below from those classes.

This whole scam is much, much worse than Solyndra.

That they, i.e., Obama, gave it to a Canadian company says it all.

Easier to get the money out of the country.

BIGGEST fraud perpetrated on U.S. taxpayers.

IF we don’t take action now all the culprits, led by Obama, will skip the country come 2017.

Obama will seek asylum in Kenya.

While I have done work for Canadian software companies, lets face it,
Canada’s biggest technology ‘success’ is Blackberry and they IMPLODED.

Lets not even talk about bloody Northern Telecom (NT or Nortel)
that embezzled 5 years of my pension making my destitute even worse.

Since 1991 I have been promoting the FACT that the ONE AREA that the U.S. has
an UNBEATABLE lead is software development.

IBM, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Cisco, Oracle, Adobe, Facebook, Linkedin yada, yada, yada, yada
are not Canadian, not Korean, not German, not Japanese, not Indian, not French,
not Kenyan.

All of the world’s BIGGEST software companies are American.

So why the heck would we give Obamacare to the Canadians
given that they don’t even have the sense to move to a
warmer country?

This is FRAUD.

Impeach Obama.

Round up all the other crooks and throw them in Jail.

This is why bloody Sebelius would NOT answer John Stewart’s REPEATED question: “how many people managed to enroll in Obamacare last week?”

NONE. Nonbody. ZERO.

All accounts setup at healthcare.gov last week [i.e., Oct. 1 – Oct. 7] were DELETED on Sunday night. 

Ditto applications.

So don’t sit there smugly thinking that you are all set. You have been screwed, right royally, in your derriere and you still haven’t worked it out.

I know because they told me.

I set up two accounts and applied through the call center.
ALL LOST.

I applied again. So I know.

Liberal media is covering this up for Obama.

Republican media, i.e., Fox News, too stupid to understand what this means.
Way too complicated for them. Pity.
I called and e-mailed them offering to take them through it using small words.

Just remember WHO broke this story.

Can NO LONGER logon. I was able last week — as this post proves.

As I write, I am ‘on hold’ with the 1-800 Call Center. Their computer system is down too!

All accounts created last week LOST. Official. Call and find out.

All data lost.

Yes. Gone. Will have to apply again.

Just confirmed. My application data was ALL lost.

OFFICIAL.

They are retyping it. 

Yes. The Website sure has to be under ‘Denial of Service’ (DoS) attack. That would explain some of the problems, but not all.

They should have anticipated DoS attacks. That was so predictable.

This is pure and simple FRAUD.

Nothing has happened with my plea for a Congressional Inquiry into this — the BIGGEST FRAUD perpetrated on U.S. Tax Payers.

Obama and his cronies have to have lined their pockets with BILLION OF DOLLARS claiming it was for developing this system.

I spent 40 years of my life involved, intimately, with LARGE computer systems. This is FRAUD.

Why aren’t the Republicans going after Obama for this?

This is how they can shutdown Obamacare.

Impeach Obama before he skips town with his ill gotten billions.

Once he gets to Kenya we will never be able to extradite him.

I Apply For Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA)/Obamacare Insurance By Phone, Through Call Center, Not ‘Healthcare.gov’.

Well according to this, and it took me 40 minutes and 8 attempts to logon to healtcare.gov, my current application is being reviewed.

I do NOT trust it.

Here is the kicker. I was told that I would get the approval or denial by mail!

Around 2:20 pm yesterday, Wednesday, October 2, 2013, when the fraudulent healthcare.gov system would NOT let me proceed because I had dependents that did NOT require health insurance, I in desparation first tried the ONLINE CHAT. That was a joke. Just automated messages that told me to try again in March 2014! I kid you NOT.

I then called the 1-800 number.

I was surprised. Somebody answered with a few minutes!

She was very pleasant, actually quite friendly, very professional and helpful.

She said that they knew of the dependent problem.

Then she said that I could apply online and that she could type it all in.

So we did that. It wasn’t too painful. Obviously she was using a system different to what we have at healtcare.gov. That alone is criminal. Bryan Sivak, the reprobate behind this billion dollar scam should be arrested. Republicans can be so dumb sometimes. They can shutdown Obamacare just by highlighting and focusing on this scam! Forget the funding. Highlight the scam. Close the system because of the fraud. But, that is too technical for them. Alas.

She had to put me on hold about 6 times to go and find out answers. But, it was OK. Much better service than I have had from U.S. Cellular or DirecTV.

When it was all done and filed she told me that that was the FIRST application she had processed!

I was floored. This was 2:30 pm on the 2nd DAY of bloody Obamacare.

She told me that she got a LOT of training. So she must have started the day before though I didn’t get a chance to ask her that.

So about 30.5 hours after it went live, I was the first application she had processed!

Amazing.

This is such a travesty. Such a scam.

For this Obama should be impeached. That he let this happen is criminal, pure and simple. But, Republicans don’t get it. That is why they lost the last election. Just don’t get it. I have tried to help. I am even telling them what to do … like calling for a Congressional Inquiry.

‘Healthcare.gov’ Obmacare Healthcare Registration System CANNOT Deal With Folks That Do NOT NEED Insurance For Dependents!

This is bloody (and the word I really want to use is not that) AMAZING.

They, these damn crooks, NEVER coded this system for a person, with a family, that just wanted insurance for themselves.

You have to enter spouse and all dependents you will claim on 2014 Tax Return.

THEN YOU go into a never ending loop IF you don’t specify that you need insurance for them.

I called the 1-800 CALL Center. They CONFIRMED that this was a known BUG.

Bloody amazing.

This proves that these crooks NEVER tested this system. They should go to PRISON, but they won’t. They just became millionaires off this scam.


It starts LOOPING, endlessly at this point. You can't get out. I called the 1-800. They knew of this problem! Trying to fix this.
