i've somehow racked up 39 friends but they consist mostly of old high school acquaintances, ex shags, old uni acquaintances, and a handful of real friends. and ned ;)

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:28 (twelve years ago) link

Hah! I managed to get about 70 friends. All people I know from here, Kindamuzik and a mailing list. haha

nathalie, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:29 (twelve years ago) link

i'm enjoying the voyeuristic nature of it though - seeing what's going on in other people's lives.

but i'm also finding myself feeling quite embarrassed by the fact that every single one of my old acquaintances is travelling extensively/making lots of money/happily ensconced in a relationship.

meanwhile, i am still in my home country, working two crap jobs and going to school. and single.

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:31 (twelve years ago) link

Traveling: they are escaping their problems.

In a relationship: the other is probably fooling around.

Making lots of money: They have to or the mob will slit their throat because they can't pay off their debts accumulated through online betting.

nathalie, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:33 (twelve years ago) link

oh, nathalie - you're awesome!

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:41 (twelve years ago) link

I have searched for maybe 75 people from my school, univ, work past and present, friends, neighbours, band-mates, family.....

...and have found only 2 people outside of ILX who are on Facebook. For various reasons I'm not sure that I want them as friends anyway.

Loads of people I've asked have never even heard of it. I'm trying to figure out what that means (apart from the fact that I am old and everyone I know is old too).

Dr.C, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:42 (twelve years ago) link

acrobat, mine was doing that earlier as well.

i am mainly using mine for playing scrabble btw.

CarsmileSteve, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:48 (twelve years ago) link

acrobat, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 12:51 (twelve years ago) link

The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 13:35 (twelve years ago) link

that happens on myspace all the time too, so i've taken to writing in a notepad file or cutting and repasting them.

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 13:39 (twelve years ago) link

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 13:49 (twelve years ago) link

"Hey, your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience."

been saying this since last night

blueski, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 13:51 (twelve years ago) link

Seems fine for me.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 13:56 (twelve years ago) link

Facebook doesn't want to be Stevem's friend!

blueski, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 14:12 (twelve years ago) link

i just joined the ILE group. let the games begin!

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 14:21 (twelve years ago) link

ok, now i have full access to the account of someone called katie hobbs but no access to my own.

acrobat, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 14:45 (twelve years ago) link

to the account? hoo. the fun you could have.

i sincerely hope nobody is having the same fun with mine.

grimly fiendish, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 14:51 (twelve years ago) link

might be worth dropping facebook a line and saying, er, dudes, this isn't good.

if you're going to go on a wrecking spree, do it first, natch :)

grimly fiendish, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 14:52 (twelve years ago) link

i'd guess they probably have an idea, it does seem to be happening a lot...

CarsmileSteve, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:00 (twelve years ago) link

Hi Ruby R!

Facebook is working fine for me. Possibly too well.

Mark C, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:05 (twelve years ago) link

What's the rule about letting people go? Is there a notification that gets sent to them?

kv_nol, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:38 (twelve years ago) link

apparently not - when i mentioned upthread that i had accepted a friend req from an old moronic ex out of politeness CJ (i think) told me that you can unfriend people and they don't get a notification.

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:42 (twelve years ago) link

scrabulous is ruining my life.

molly mummenschanz, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:47 (twelve years ago) link

Ah, okay so. Scrabulous is the devil.

kv_nol, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:55 (twelve years ago) link

It's not that bad! come on folx.

Ms Misery, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:56 (twelve years ago) link

Given that I have no self-control, I can't stop playing.

molly mummenschanz, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 15:57 (twelve years ago) link

Well me neither. but I've also managed to submit a design mock up for one site and nearly finish building another since this madness has become. Granted I have the manic, ADD-riddled mind of a young child hopped up on chocolate and coke so the paces suits me well.

Ms Misery, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 16:02 (twelve years ago) link

That said, I will wait awhile before taking my turn with Molly to give her some breathing space. :)

Ms Misery, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 16:03 (twelve years ago) link

wtf?? the ILE group is 'currently unavailable'. so much for my attempts to stalk all your asses out.

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 16:05 (twelve years ago) link

my quadrupulous bingo droppage over the last 24 hours is the only thing keeping me going right now in light of last night's PC death. at least they've let me back on now.

blueski, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 16:06 (twelve years ago) link

FB can be quirky. though not nearly so as MySpew.

What's your name ruby? (if you want to post it here)

Ms Misery, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 16:06 (twelve years ago) link

just1n3 paul

:) okay i'm off to sleep for realz this time.

Rubyredd, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 16:11 (twelve years ago) link

A coworker of mine got a friend request (wich she accepted) from on old friend of her brothers (old as in they hadn't seen each other in years). He then proceed to send an unsolicited email to another (rather attractive) coworker of mine; whom he'd never even met before!
neither of the girls were amused.
i was tho.

The last thing I did before it died was start a game of Scrabulous with you. I'm not sure I want it to come back up now :-(

ailsa, Tuesday, 31 July 2007 18:32 (twelve years ago) link

It's back.

official statement:

"This morning, we temporarily took down the Facebook site to fix a bug we identified earlier today. This was not the result of a security breach. Specifically, the bug caused some third party proxy servers to cache otherwise inaccessible content. The result was that an isolated group of users could see some pages that were not intended for them. The site has now been restored, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."

It's not letting me send messages to people now, annoyingly.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:28 (twelve years ago) link

people from school friending me and the snowball effect (once you accept their request you feel you should anyone else on their list you also went to school with) is freaking me out right now.

blueski, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:28 (twelve years ago) link

nobody from my school seems to be on it. I am assuming this is because I'm old.

Grandpont Genie, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:34 (twelve years ago) link

i'm collecting ilxors like baseball cards - eventually, when i have enough, i'm gonna sell them off to some poor fb loser with no friends.

Thinking similarly here.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:37 (twelve years ago) link

Here cause we're still catching up. They are at the point of discovering electricity.

stevienixed, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:40 (twelve years ago) link

i don't have schoolfriends' email addies (or they mine) on the whole so that problem hasn't come up, fortch.

That one guy that hit it and quit it, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:53 (twelve years ago) link

that doesn't matter at all - you can just search by name. some lovely old friends have found me in this way.

CharlieNo4, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 14:57 (twelve years ago) link

500+ profiles

That one guy that hit it and quit it, Wednesday, 1 August 2007 15:00 (twelve years ago) link

I cant find any of my old missing friends, it makes me sad panda.
