I headed over to Google.com, found the “Contact Us” page and the “Report a problem” link, chunked in a brief problem description and a link to the archived copy of the long technical description from that same mailing list thread, and thought to myself, “Gee, I’ll never hear about that again.” But then one afternoon a week later I get an email that said, basically, “We’ve received your problem report, and forwarded it on to the appropriate department, if they need any further information they’ll contact you. Thanks.” Again, I thought, “Gee, how nice. I’ll never hear about that again.”
An interesting, hopeful read for computer geeks.
The story behind me getting my current job is almost as exciting: I applied for it online, forgot about it, then a year later I received an email asking if I was still interested in working there.
