Update: Website problem corrected

The last few hours you may have seen a redirect problem with the blog (this particular camera deals blog, not the main blog/domain) with a destinywall.org and letstakemetoad.com redirect warning. This was caused by a WordPress plug-in for related posts that was retired/abandoned…

Related posts are widgets that go below each post and recommend other posts.

From the looks of it, the domain letstakemetoad.com was registered late on 4/15/19.

If you know anyone using this plug-in, you/they would probably want to deactivate and delete it as soon as possible…

This is one of the reasons some people prefer to write their own plug-ins instead of using publicly-available ones. Of course in order to do this you have to have the time, energy, knowledge and/or budget…

Refunds are coming in July: all Microsoft ebook purchases

Trigger warning for Zune fans!

Microsoft has one more time decided to kill a previously-launched media store. This time they decided to kill their ill-conceived e-book store. All ebooks purchased (including the free ones) will disappear in July 2019. Until then, you can access them with the Edge browser.

The refunds should happen automatically in July to your original payment method IF that payment method can accept refunds (eg credit or debit cards). IF your original payment method cannot accept refunds (gift card, expired/cancelled card, etc), you will receive a Microsoft online store credit).

And IF you left any notes/annotations in any of their ebooks prior to today, you will receive a “bonus” $25 Microsoft store credit.
