Time and Upgrades

I feel obsolete because I haven't had the time to migrate from Liferay 5.2.3 to 6.0.x.  The custom theme changes are still just too involved for the little blocks of time I have.  I dearly want a lot of those features, but consistency is more important at this point.

Distributed service + browser plugin for streaming video where users hit mute when commercials start nad unmute when they end.  If enough other users hit mute, send a message to other people's browsers to mute them and unmute them accordingly.

flickr hates android

The flickr mobile website sucks for uploading photos.  The email function is a dumb workaround.  Why did they bother developing an Apple app but not android?  The free apps that are available stink and don't integrate well with android.  I'm not going to use facebook for my photos.  I don't want to pay more than the pro fee I already paid.  What a bunch of maroons.

Microsoft Online BPOS Tech Support

I rue support tickets with these guys.  It's like talking to a ghost standing on the other side of a long hallway who is also unwilling to open their mouth more than a millimeter to let the sound of them speaking get past their lips unless it's quieter than a feather falling onto fresh snow in the Himalayas.  I swear I don't answer the phone with them because out of 4 or 5 support tickets, I have never once understood anything they said without three or four clarifications.  I need one of those old people mega-blaster amplifiers for my phone or something.  Or they need to SPEAK UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I don't care what kind of wonderfully peaceful quiet office you guys are in.  I CAN'T HEAR YOU!  THIS PROBLEM IMPEDES YOUR ABILITY TO DO YOUR OWN JOB! 

Doesn't matter if I'm on a landline or a cell, you guys are way too quiet.  I can't even understand the voicemails when I turn my computer speakers up to full volume because you're averaging the same decibel level as the noise floor on a typical phone line.  And I know it's not always the same guy (although it was at least the first two times).  I'd open a ticket about it but that would make my head explode.
