Amazon UK Free Shipping Bug

August 12th, 2012 No comments

Something I’ve noticed on a few Amazon UK Marketplace seller items is the following misleading bug. On the item page, the price clearly states Free UK shipping:

However, when you come to check out, P&P has been added. This is not new – Amazon regularly try this on and default to paid shipping, but in this case there is no option to reject this and select free shipping.

It means Amazon is promoting free shipping when the option does not exist. Not sure whether the marketplace traders realise this. Maybe they think they’re offering free shipping, but Amazon’s bug is putting people off actually placing the order.

Escape Key not responding in AutoCAD

October 31st, 2011 No comments

If you find that the escape key is no longer responding (or only intermittently) in AutoCAD, check whether you have an instance of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements open, as this program seems to commandeer the escape key even when it is not the window in focus.

iPhone reboots when attaching for sync

My iPhone 3G has started rebooting when attaching to the Mac for syncing. This has only started recently and is intermittent, but it would appear that I’m not alone. It is obviously not supposed to do this because according to Little Snitch, mdcrashreporttool is connecting to to report the fault:

Sky+ bug

January 24th, 2009 No comments

Sky PlusWhile Sky+ works well most of the time, I have found a bug in the software when faced with a dual recording.

Normally if you have a concurrent recording set for channels A and B but are watching channel C, the box will pop up with a message saying that you have to cancel a recording to continue watching channel C – fair enough as it needs both tuners to do the recording. If you do not respond to the pop-up it will assume you are not there and record both programs, switching away from channel C.

Having two young daughters, Sky is often still tuned to CBeebies when they go to bed. CBeebies closes down at 7pm. If Sky+ now has two recordings set it still displays the pop-up but doesn’t time out meaning that one of the recordings fails unless you come back, switch the TV on, see the pop-up and respond to it, which normally results in missing the start of the one of the recordings.

It would seem that if the channel C in the example above is a channel which is not currently broadcasting, Sky+ fails to time out and you lose one of your recordings.
