Something small that really annoyed me yesterday was Google locking my account and going completely ballistic because I checked my email from a friend's IP address. I had about 200 hysterical warnings that someone had stolen my login and I had to keep issuing reassurances that yes, it was really me. Surely an outfit with Google's technical capabilities could come up with something a little less ham-fisted?

I get one 2FA request from Google when I use a new IP for the first time and have to confirm with my phone. Are you using a POP/IMAP client that's repeatedly polling your gmail account?

I do use popmail but polling is off. It only checks when I click on it. I actually clicked on it by accident when checking something else, then I got all the over-the-top crap from Google. I don't have a phone so don't use 2FA.

Courier tracking is up to its usual tricks; apparently I had a package delivered tonight at 10:56 PM.

Complain *now* to the Courier company that it wasn't delivered. That should screw up their incident tracking system foot-in-mouth . You might even get a free TV!

Mouse sneaking into my $1000 subwoofer, destroying it then mummifying.

Not totally sure if it was the mouse that wrecked it coz the problem seems to be the amp module which seems fairly well sealed but I guess it could have short circuited the speaker wires causing something to fail.

For real?  I ordered a phone case from Samsung this weekend but got a call from the courier yesterday enquiring about a TV he had to deliver to me.

After the last few days I've had, my BS detector is shot to hell.  Definitely needs recalibration...
