I promise this is my last blog post about spiders...
But I just got sent this "business spider" by the wonderful Joseph Macloed!
It is absolutely beautiful! I loved it! So I wanted to post it here for all you lovely readers to see :D
Joe sent this spider to the email address I use for msn. I never usually check the emails on that account though, so the only reason I saw it is because Joe's twitter message prompted me to go looking for it. While I was signed in to that email address looking for Joe's spider, I noticed two emails from youtube dating back to October. It turns out I had been offered 2 VIP type tickets to the Youtube Live event which took place on November 22nd.
I know several people in the UK got invited to the event, but I thought youtube had just overlooked me. I'm glad they didn't ^_^ Although I'm slightly annoyed I only just saw the invitations today after the event has already passed. I wouldn't have been able to afford to go to San Fran for it anyways, but it would still have been nice to know prior to the event, that I had been invited... ahhhh well.
I also feel a little bad about not RSVPing to let youtube know I wouldn't be able to make it, as in the email they asked if I could let them know either way, so that my reserved tickets could be offered to someone else if I couldn't come. Hopefully I'm not in Youtube's bad books now for ignoring their invitation xD
In conclusion, I have changed the email account which is linked with my youtube account, so now all emails will get sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, which I check several times each day, so something like this will not happen again :)
