comment How do you share a Facebook photo album with people that don't want to register for Facebook?
@Alex it may not be a bug. It may be that Facebook simply now force people to sign up to view the album.

@phwd Here's a test album: facebook.com/media/set/… It leads to this page (in IE also): postimage.org/image/6r1c3yx8r

@phwd I tried the "With timeline" process again just now. If I open the link that I get in Step 7 with a Chrome incognito window (no cookie for Facebook login), the link wants me to sign up for facebook. I'm downvoting until someone clarifies.

comment Gmail, how to forward email to group using a filter
+1 for explaining the steps. I'd say that a Google Group is better than an autoforward address because users can "unsubscribe" (if they don't belong to the voluntary tax syndicate anymore).

comment Gmail, how to forward email to group using a filter
is it a group address (e.g., lottogroup@example.com) or are you trying to specify multiple addresses?

comment How can I delete my Facebook posts from an open group where I'm no longer a member?
Another route: ask one of the other members to become the admin and add you to the group so you can delete those posts. If the current admin is defunct, anyone can assume that role. "If you're a member of a group with no admins, you can become an admin by clicking Make Me Admin under Members in the right column." from facebook.com/help/121869921229278

Are you sure your posts are visible to others? Try the "view your timeline as..." to get to the postings? Otherwise, you could report the group, claiming it's harassing you (admin is inactive, won't re-add you to allow you to delete posts). There's an option in the sequence of screens to "Report to facebook" and the final step allows you to "Receive an email from facebook after the report is handled." (or something like that)

comment Cannot copy text from PDF generated with Google Docs?
@ALJIMohamed I can now copy/paste the first line that's legible. I've updated my answer below. I'm curious what font you chose before? It would be great if you could reproduce the problem in a Google Apps document that you can share with everyone.

comment Cannot copy text from PDF generated with Google Docs?
@ALJIMohamed here's what I get when I paste the first line: (using Chrome's preview) ,QJpQLHXUeWXGHVHW'pYHORSSHPHQW (using Adobe PDF) 􀀬􀁑􀁊􀁰􀁑􀁌􀁈􀁘􀁕􀀃􀁥􀁗􀁘􀁇􀁈􀁖􀀃􀁈􀁗􀀃􀀧􀁰􀁙􀁈􀁏􀁒􀁓􀁓􀁈􀁐􀁈􀁑􀁗. The PDF properties (in Adobe) say your PDF was produced by the application "Documill Publishor 6.3.12 by Documill" -- I just generated a PDF with drive.google.com and got the same properties, however accented characters are OK. The problem in your document seems to be the embedded fonts with custom encoding. Can you try changing the font in Google?

@leora See my edit about "keeping them collapsed" (if you open the triangle to see subfolders, the bold disappears).
