Stupid sodium hypochlorite! [May. 30th, 2007|09:23 pm]
I have been cranky off and on for no particular reason the last couple days.

Now I have a reason: I was spraying some household cleaner around and some got on my shirt. The major ingredient in this stuff turns out to be bleach, and now my shirt (which I liked) is kinda ruined.


I saw a tiny bunny no bigger than my fist while taking out the recycling, but I am still cranky. Somebody suggest something that will restore my natural good humor and faith in the universe!

LJ's phone post auto-transcriber is some amazing stuff.

I don't believe it's transcription by computer. I believe it's transcription by Indian. If you look at the webpage for the company involved, there is very little evidence of actual R+D work, but lots of suits.

....That would explain a lot, actually.

I phoneposted my horrific experience being gangraped by Suzanne Somers and five Oompa Loompas and the transcription never showed up.

Information yearns to be freeclosed captioned for the hearing impaired!

Like why it doesn't know how to spell 'Tyrannosaurus'.

Hah! No shit! I thought it might have been a machine translator that spelled things phonetically when it couldn't get a solid match...

I'm going to start posting disjointed rants on outsourcing and New York City cab drivers and see if any get transcribed.
