|ROFL. You find that or put it up? |
androidtech - I found it! - Since I posted it I can see from the sellers 'feedback' that they must have sold at least 6! $45 and counting :)
I thought, hmm, some person has sure decided to make a nice little side business selling off invitations. But I delved a little deeper, and found that the seller has made a whopping $11 so far, lol.
Goes to show you it is all in who you know ~ and I've already been invited ;)
Bad news guys. I just received a patent on applying to Orkut. In addition, I received a patent on anyone trying to break my patent with prior art.
Pay up or be exiled.
Jenstar I can tell you are not an eBay user :) You only looked at 2983379992 the same person also has them going on 2983383889 and 2983450342.
Maybe more by now - click on "View seller's other items"
Am I the only person (perhaps lacking a sense of humor) that finds the ebay sales to be more obnoxious and annoying than funny?
Then again, I'm also the same guy that thought the Fakesters were the results of immature folks with WAAAAAY too much time on their hands. (after ending up with a useless Friendster 'network' of 50,000 people, all of whom were tangentially connected via Cookie Monster, I pretty much gave up on Friendster)
OrkutGuy, OrkutAdvisor... forget that, I'm still trying to think of what Google will rename the service to bring it inline with its oogley naming scheme.
It's a shame that Orkut's first initial wasn't 'n' or something like that, or it could have had the oh-so-sexy name of "Noogle."
"Hey, Marge, have you been Noogled yet?"
"No, but I heard Betty already has one Noogie and another wannabe Noogler!"
Other names we wish Orkut had been:
- Stan (Stoogle... nah, sounds like a watery bird recipe.)
- Brad (Boogle... but that's just one letter off from a site that Google's lawyers are already abreast of. Minus two points for that one.)
- Walter (Woogle? Uh, nope.)
- Todd (Toogle... three gull, four gull, bay gull... uh, nah.)
- Pat (Poogle? Definitely not. Sounds too... fluffy.)
- Darren (Doogle? As in Doogle Howser, M.D.? Didn't think so.)
- Henry (Hoogle? No, they're saving that for their updated whois function.)
- Jack (Joogle? No, that's a different site that searches the Talmud.)
- Kit (Koogle? That's what my Grandma made AFTER she studied the Talmud. Also, a certain Tim may have a problem with it.)
- Matt (Moogle? Sounds udderly mad!)
- Zack (Zoogle? What the service'll become if it gets too crowded, I suppose.)
Okay, I give up. It's clear that orkut.com is the best choice! :)
Orkut shows what a little PR & viral marketing can do. It won't take them long to blow past my userbase of 33,000 members.
Someone invite me :)
When trying to access orkut.com I get...
Bad Request (Invalid URL)
Yep... Same deal for me.
Ack! Growing Pains!
403 for me. ;)
What is really odd is that I haven't heard a peep from them all day, then suddenly I get all my notifications from Orkut from all the people who have asked me to be their friend or who have given me testimonials today, but I also get the forbidden error now when I tried to go and follow up, lol.

Jenstar, same thing I thought I was missing something when I already had friends and stuff earlier. Mail delayed. :P
A little bird told me that h4x0r3d gave orkut a big kiss!
big development... orkut goes "HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden"... must have brought in the google engineering heavyweights to clean up the mess. :)
Glad it's not personal.
Orkut is a beta, so I'd expect it to go down from time to time..
