So the other day I got a HDMI cable through the Apple Store and since it was made by XtremeMac, I decided to go check out their website. I managed to stumble across a typo on this page, and seeing as there was a handy "Comments" link at the bottom of the page (which most sites don't seem to have these days), I decided to let them know. I sent them an email about it, and the next day I get back a reply with a 10% discount code. (And more importantly, they fixed the typo). Sweet!

I haven't yet gotten the chance to use the cable, so I can't comment on actual quality, but they sure know how to satisfy their customers :)

how is fixing the typo more important than your 10% discount?!

Because it shows that the people in the company actually talk to each other and get things done, rather than just throwing around money for no reason.

Not necessarily. You could just get an HDMI cable or something.

Use it to strangle people, clearly. Using shoelaces is *so* last century.

Well then, I guess you really do have no use for an HDMI cable. Pity. Coulda gotten 10% off!

You know the joke about how men and women shop? Women will spend 50 cents on something that costs a dollar, even if they don't need it. Men will spend 2 dollars on something that costs a dollar, only when they need it.

No.. I don't know that joke. But apparently it doesn't apply to you.. turning down a 10% discount! For shame!

Also, I really like how this thread demonstrates my exponential indenting. Nice smooth curve of indented replies :)

Except something funky happened to the formatting? Comment text is appearing formatted like links for me in some comments (like all others on this page; dunno about mine yet), but not others.

Could be my browser, though; it's doing...interesting...things to me today. I blame my five year old Windows install.

No, I think that was my fault. Made a small change to the code and didn't check non-Opera browsers to make sure it worked. Stupid cross-browser compatibility.. anyway, should be fixed now.

aha.

That explains it. I was quite confused and wondering if Adblock had been acting up again.

It does that sometimes. :)

In the spirit of not ruining the curve..

I blame all the males I've been surrouned with for years. and the trend continues. I'm the only woman on my team (out of 15 people. not terrible but still)

Truth be told, I've never heard that joke that way - only ever as a Russian joke.

Speaking of Russian jokes...

What did the nouveau rich Russian ask the old Jew"?
"Can I have some money, dad?"

Or - and this is really a favourite -

Two new Russians are talking about a new tie. One asks the other, "How much was the tie?"
The other replies, "Oh, a $100".
The first stares at him and exclaims, "You've been ripped off! You could have gone across the street and paid twice as much!

PS - Kats, I just the following CAPTCHA: KHANN!

I actually didn't hear that from a russian source so I don't consider it a russian joke, though it very well may be.
