What other free phone message broadcast services are there?
group2call wins on volume, tweaks, dial-in.. but loses on privacy and unresponsiveness of staff
justknow has very little free.. while phonevite and group2call have at least 25 messages DAILY justknow limits free to 5 per MONTH. sucks.
edit: Jan 10
DialMyCalls.com – ONE call per day up to 25 recipients
Asterisk voicemail broadcast

oh, and thanks for the delightful “activation” ‘scheme’! It really slows the load-to-ready state of all the applications! If I wanted to wait I would have wasted money on visNta
I’m sure you won’t mind me removing it

Please kindly note that the order # [a number] was used Egg Saver (DHL); after reviewing your account, we notice that your order has already been shipped out on [a date] with DHL tracking number [a number]. Please kindly note that the item actually ships with a DHL tracking number and it is then distributed to USPS so that they can then deliver it to you.
In this case, it does ship out with DHL first but it takes 4-5 business days to update the information. Usually, it takes 3 to 7 business days for the package to be delivered to you. If you cannot receive the package after 7 business days, please reply to this email so that we can further assist you. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.
Not only does allegedly-new newegg merely eventually ship the package but they cannot be bothered to surround all surfaces of the enclosed retail box with padding material inside the shipping container as outlined by carriers (UPS, FedEx, et al). Perhaps they do not understand that I prefer my new retail product to arrive in new condition. Having seen how UPS handles packages within a UPS facility I shall not accept poorly packaged items. Fighting over $200 is not worth the time, but as a matter of justice it is.
CDW knows how to treat both packages and customers. Sure it does help to have ordering power backed by a multibillion dollar multinational company.. that usually wins me free overnight shipping on my personal CDW account. :)

microsoft developed technology to store celestial objects online. google already possesses technology to steal bits of soul
Transmogrification too good to be true?
We’ve designed Hotmail storage to grow with you, but at a reasonable pace. That means you should have plenty of storage unless you suddenly want to store the planet Jupiter on Hotmail, in which case we’ll send you a nice e-mail asking you to please not try to store planets on Hotmail (although gradual storage of planets, moons, and asteroids is ok).
Google already cunningly has users of its various ‘free’ services spoon feed themselves to their evil webmachines… now with toothy gears!

WHOIS should be optional. Use the contact widget on the given site should the owner desire to provide that facility. If the site “is illegal” in a fashion a subpoena will acquire the information.
I don’t appreciate having to pay an additional fee to not have a bunch of MY personal information in every DNS box on the planet. Maintaining a PO box or other devious methods (we have no intention of revealing), web voicemail number (or fun with sip), ought not continue for the sole purpose of satisfying a tyrannical bureaucracy with slightly more functional value than the British monarchy. ICANN exists at its sole pleasure? It will be difficult to burst through the tubes to dump ones domains into the exoether (the space between the tubes, manifolds, etc) in protest.
I cannot ICANN abide.
18.104.22.168 Registrar shall make a complete electronic
copy of the data available at least one time per week for download
by third parties who have entered into a bulk access agreement with
Who aren’t bright enough to setup their own DNS box?
22.214.171.124 Registrar’s access agreement may
require the third party to agree not to sell or redistribute the
data except insofar as it has been incorporated by the third party
into a value-added product or service that does not permit the extraction
of a substantial portion of the bulk data from the value-added product
or service for use by other parties.
MAY? please don’t spam our customers but whatever. Have you
read the agreement banks sideswipe you with on new account creation in
its ENTIRETY? third party spam fest out of which you may not opt,
until such time as you are automatically opted-in. Tacit? NO.
They’ll treat you like a tinfoilhat loon
And the solution is held in “may land” well beyond the ken of exoether in section 126.96.36.199 (emphasis added) wherein:
Registrar may enable Registered Name
Holders who are individuals to elect not to have Personal Data concerning
their registrations available for bulk access for marketing purposes
based on Registrar’s “Opt-Out” policy, and if Registrar
has such a policy, Registrar shall require the third party to abide
by the terms of that Opt-Out policy; provided, however, that Registrar
may not use such data subject to opt-out for marketing purposes
in its own value-added product or service.
Damnable “may”. Godaddy would never provide that without extortion at least $8/year up to $30/year for ultra private but with some information provided about a business. Hide less and cost more. Brilliant… but for whom?
Businesses who wish to create a strong loyalty base MUST have a double opt-in system and assume the customer only wishes status on purchases or responses to inquiries.
ICANN employs wiki*dia style “truth by consensus” …. stire in some socialism and reflect on bygone generations globally… epic fail.
… need sleep… more analysis of cretinous requirements forthcoming …..

This delightfully structured ponzi scheme bailout will not only require creation of a magic interest free circle for the ‘plan’ to make money, but is entirely unamerican, much as socialism is antithetical to our ideals. His failure was in not stamping veto on this absurdity. If you people elect Obama the socialist expect much worse. obama is marxism personified, a racist, and wholly unsuited to any AMERICAN public office.
Let’s ‘borrow’ money from everyone to save the foolish from their own respective failures. NO! Let’s not!
Personal responsibility, pursuit of happiness… there are no guarantees to success some will fail. That’s life… and their failure isn’t my problem.
As before: my money is mine.
Dear God, please spare us from seeing FDR history repeat itself.
