This is what happens when you don't QA your before you launch.

Among other things that didn't work in the buying process, included my suite number getting stripped out when I submitted it, the inability to change my billing address despite the prompts to do so, and the follow up email that offered a link to "complete my order" that lead to a 404 page I also clicked on a chat link in the checkout process out of pure desperation that resulted in a 404. Note the URL, that's my favorite.

Information Architecture trouble shooting tip: You can be pretty sure your information architecture is sub par when the people (employees) who know the content of your site best insist on using Google's site operator (site:www.mybadIAsite.com) to find information rather than navigating to it.

I finally have a custom URL for my G+ profile. https://plus.google.com/+NickMusica/

So, I guess that's exciting.
