GeekBuying Customer Support Lied Four Times

My advices is “Never trust GeekBuying”.

Here I share my terrible experience when I tried to buy Xiaomi mobile phone on GeekBuying.

Jan 20, 2018
I ordered the item. The item page said “Shipping: in 2-7 days“.

Jan 27, 2018
I contacted with their order tracking support and asked when my order will be shipped.

Jan 29, 2018
Reply from their tracking support:

My replay:

The page of this item still says “Shipping: in 2-7 business days”. Is this true?
Do you mean if I cancel my order and make a new order, I can get this item faster?
Can I confirm which is true?

I clicked the link then jumped to their private Goole Group. The page says you aren’t authorized to access this group…

Jan 31, 2018
My reply:

Dear Cecilia,

It says this group uses a private domain, so you have no right to access.
Anyway I will write a review after I receive my item. Naturally my review depends on how fast I can get my item.

Best regards,

My confirmation:

Dear Cecilia,

I really appreciate I could get your reply for the following questions as soon as possible. My order number is #XXXXXXX.

1) When I ordered this item, the unit price was 22471 yen. (I think you can check it on my order) However, today’s unit price is 22070 yen, increased 401 yen. I suppose I don’t need to pay this additional 401 yen because the reason is your shipment delay.

2) You promised that you will ship my order 2-3 days later at 19:15 on Jan 31, 2018 JST. Can I confirm you are sure that my order will be shipped until 19:15 JST of today?

I really appreciate you reply to this email as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance,

It’s Monday, so I directy contacted with their support by their online chat.

Agent Service03 has joined the chat.

In the last phrase I got upset and made a mistake about how many days have passed.

However, GeekBuying deceived me four times as follows.

Lie 1) Shipment in 2-7 days when I ordered.
Lie 2) In stock 8 days later when I contacted with the support for the first time.
Lie 3) Will be shipped 2-3 days later when I contacted for the second time.
Lie 4) Out of stock until the end of Feb 2018 when I chatted with the support.

Never trust GeekBuying shipment term.

搜狗輸入法でbin型式以外の辞書ファイルを作る方法

2018/02現在、搜狗輸入法でテキスト形式で個人の辞書をエクスポートする機能がなくなり、なぜか暗号化されたbin型式でしかエクスポートできなくなっている。

気軽にインポート、エクスポートできる型式の辞書を作ろうと思ったら、搜狗輸入法公式サイトで詞庫の作成を申請するしかないという面倒なことになっている。

辞書ファイルのアップロードはこちらのページから。ログインが必要なので新浪微博などからOAuthでログインする。

https://pinyin.sogou.com/dict/create_dict.php

アップロードするのは1行1単語、ピンインも何も必要なく単語をタテに羅列しただけのテキストファイルでよい。

その後1~3日間審査を待って無事検閲を通ったら、誰でも使えるSCEL型式の辞書ファイルとしてダウンロードし、インポートできるようになっている。

面倒くさい…。

Amazon Cloud Drive Sync Never Ends

Amazon Cloud Drive (US site 1TB plan) file sync between local PC and cloud drive is too slow compared with Dropbox. I decided to stop using it.

For syncing about 30,000 files, Amazon Cloud Drive PC application never finishes syncing after two days while Dropbox Plus plan (1TB) PC application finishes at least within one day.

I choose Dropbox Plus plan.

PowerShellでフォーム認証Webアプリのログイン後セッションを使いまわす

PowerShellでフォーム認証のWebアプリケーションにログインし、そのセッションを利用していろいろな操作をする方法。

詳細者こちらのMicrosoftのページ

$loginURLにはログインフォームのあるページのURLを代入しておく。

フォームのあるページのソースコードを表示して、ユーザ名、パスワードそれぞれの入力欄のnameプロパティを調べておく。
ここではそれぞれ「username」「password」だと仮定する。

-SessionVariableで「ss」と指定しているので、セッションは$ssという変数に格納される。


$ret = Invoke-WebRequest $loginURL -SessionVariable ss
$form = $ret.Forms[0]
$form.Fields["username"] = "yamada"
$form.Fields["password"] = "hogehoge"
$ret = Invoke-WebRequest $loginURL -WebSession $ss -Method Post -Body $form.Fields

Google Chrome拡張機能なしでフルスクリーンショットを取る方法

Qiitaのこちらの記事「極めろ!!Google Chrome Devtools 52の関節技」で初めて知ったのでシェア。

Google Chromeでフルの画面ショットをとるのに拡張機能は不要。

Windowsの場合[Ctrl]+[Shift]+[P]を押し、「caputurefull」まで入力するとフルキャプチャーのコマンドが選択できる。

ファイル保存ダイアログが表示され、PNG形式で保存できる。

以上。
