Unscheduled Downtime

The website was down for 10 hours yesterday due to a hard drive failure. The site came back online around 6pm with no loss of data.

I recently backed up the entire website, so I wasn't too worried about data lost. If you host a Blog or Website, make sure that you perform regular back ups. Don't rely on your hosting provider, as their last back up might miss some valuable data.

Verizon Upgrade Fee

I am a little confused by this text message I got this morning from Verizon:

Free VZW msg: Dear customer, we're pleased to reward you,
you've earned an upgrade: you qualify for a new smartphone!
Feel free to call 888-745-5774 or visit your local Verizon store to find out more!
2yr Agmt req'd. $30 upgrade fee will apply. Reply 'X' to stop msgs

Wait, What? A $30 upgrade fee? I am confused on what did I earn - The privilege to spend $30? Oh by the way, since I am no longer under any contract, I am fully free to select ANY provider and I am sure that AT&T won't charge me $30 to upgrade my phone.

So Verizon Wireless, why did you send me this text? and Why are you charging me an Upgrade Fee??
