Random thoughts

It’s been a looong time, I know. So here is a short list of very random thoughts.

1. Is it weird if someone on Flickr classifies you as family even though you’re not (and this person is also not a close friend)? I’m thinking, perhaps the person clicked on the wrong button.

2. Has anyone else lost their Quick Contacts section in GMail? I don’t have that option anymore, using Firefox of IE. * sniff *

3. Anyone use Virb? Is it the next big thing?

    Heya Eszter. I did lose my quick contacts section, but it was because I’d turned off the view that allowed me to see it. So, I don’t know if this is your problem or not, but at the bottom of most screens in gmail there’s a line that tells you how much memory you’re using and then beneath that there are a few links that allow you to toggle the view. The “standard with chat” view ought to bring back your quick contacts list. Once you’ve done that (if that is actually the problem in your case) you’ll find that the chat tab in settings will have more options which allow you to do things like switch the quick contacts list with the labels or change the number of people listed. Hope that helps!

    Thanks very much Kristina, that did it! I must’ve clicked on that link by accident at some point. There’s no reason I would’ve disabled that feature on purpose. That was an easy fix, which is nice.

    I clicked on the virb.com link and front and center – JASON! Well, his band anyway. Kind of a shock – good one tho.

    Hey there — I’ve been using Virb for a couple of months. It is the only really aesthetically pleasing soc net site I’ve seen (though a few people have managed to make their pages ugly anyway) and it’s got some very nice functionality (integrated blog and flickr import feeds). Next big thing? I dunno about that. I hear tell that the designers are all into it (or not), but not much happening there for me. I wish there were though because it’s nice to look at.
