Yes. They get their analytics via people that have installed their browser toolbar. The results bear no relationship to what ga reports and seem to be complete bullshit. I don't understand why it's a business...

I just cancelled my subscription to Skype. All went ok, through their cancellation site, then I got this scary message a couple of days later...

'Unfortunately, we have been forced to reverse your recent order with Skype. The order did not pass our anti-fraud measures. We will return the money to the account the payment was made from and stop delivery of the service you ordered.'

Why Skype ? Why not just accept the cancellation gracefully... .?? All it means is that now I definitely won't be back...

Skype lost me when they changed how the programs works with the task bar.

I can't close the window? That's fine... (uninstall).

Wonder why we show boarding passes at airport shops? So they can claim back the VAT we pay. Turns out it's not a legal requirement, but just a weasly scam...

+Lenny Cunningham alerted me to this parse.com announcement , where they are saying there may be some rest api problems with some changes they plan to make.. 

I just tried their test and it looks like apps script will be fine..

Logger.log(UrlFetchApp.fetch('https://sha2-test.parse.com').getContentText());

So good news for those of you using any of my parse.com libraries.

Probably not so good news for my VBA /Parse.com implementations though... sigh.. so I guess I'll be back on Windows tomorrow..

parse blog post is here...
