I'm Easily Amused
This amused me:
Your account has been cancelled.
It was sent by Seagate, who made one of my external drives, and had included with it X months of data storage so I could jam things on the external drive, then also back up by uploading X amount to their data storage facility deep in an abandoned NORAD missile silo (or anyway somewhere). I never could understand why I'd want to do that, so had never uploaded anything. I still can't understand why. If I wanted space out of the room I'd stick it on my host (I thought long and hard when dreamhost had that "unlimited data/bandwidth" birthday deal, then finally decided no, because SOMETHING should limit my overactive production of data, for the good of the planet.)* or burn it to a dvd or something (which isn't fool-proof by any means but so what). Of course, after X months they have tons of yer precious data (whatever that may be), which can be a useful hostage as after that it will be X dollars a month to preserve it.
I think it should've said, "Your account has been cancelled. Good bye," but then I'd have less to feel amused by. /me wonders if she can send Seagate the youtube link.
*Update: Oops, I accidentally upgraded to the infinite plan.
