Not so stupid - the game has a clear behavior-bug. If you got connected with an other of your bubble while growing and the very same time one of the 'bouncy ball's hit the very same bubble you loose a life, without loosing the bubble...So it's not only a time waster - it's also unfair!
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. (V)
I have two sites with same set of users but based on different product. So I want if user logged in to first site, they are automatically logged in to the second one when they try to visit the second site.
But saying that, both the sites are on different domain.
I don't think cross domain cookie is even possible. Is there any way around it?
I just had a bizarre on-line chat with Microsoft. I was looking at the Australian web page for the Surface Pro 3 and noticed an interesting set of dimensions. Clickety[^] In case they fix them up before you get there, the dimensions were listed as:
7.93 x 11.5 x 9.14mm
Someone forget to convert all three measurements to millimetres, which is fine I suppose. I tried to do the right thing and tell them so they could get it fixed. It took me about 15 minutes to convince the on-line chat guy that something was wrong. A short excerpt...
Me: The dimensions listed for the Surface are truly tiny. I think someone has messed up inches and mm.
John: Dimensions: 7.93 x 11.5 x 9.14mm Weight: 079kg
Me: They're the ones.
John: Those are the accurate dimensions.
Me: Wow! That makes the Surface about the size of a pea. Don't you think that the 7.93 and 11.5 are supposed to be inches?
John: That is just the exterior of the device.
Me: Are you sure?
John: Yes, I have the figures here.
Me: Can I suggest that you get a ruler and draw a 7.93 mm line, an 11.5 mm line and a 9.14 mm line. Imagine the box that they would make. It's going to be pretty small.
John: I don't have a ruler.
Me: Look. You just need to forward this on to the web developers. These figures are obviously wrong.
We kept going for a while yet. Eventually I think that he got the message but who knows. I just couldn't believe it took so long. Serves me right for trying to help.
If you spend your whole life looking over your shoulder, they will get you from the front instead.
clearly it was an automated conversion; and since the first two numbers were dimensionless they didn't need changed.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I remember someone on here a few years ago saying they had been in hospital after their heart started beating ridiculously fast and they had to stop his heart and start it again to make it beat properly again. As he put it they effectively turned him off and on again.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
