Why I have a UPS

Comments Off on Why I have a UPS

We lost power today. I don’t know why, but the whole neighborhood blacked out at 6:57 am. Fortunately, I was getting up at 7 am to sing in the choir at the early service.

Unfortunately, we use whole-bean coffee, and had no ground coffee on-hand. After thinking about Dunkin Donuts for a few minutes, I realized that I had a UPS for the phone system and the house computer! I carried the coffee grinder to the basement, and in a few minutes, had two cups of great coffee.

Isn’t technology wonderful?


Canary Wireless exposed my email address to spammers

Comments Off on Canary Wireless exposed my email address to spammers

I just discovered that I’ve been getting spam for at least a week to the email address I used when registering with Canary Wireless. I always tag my email addresses with the name of the company I register with.

This doesn’t happen very often. Seybold Seminars revealed my address with them, but I expected that. The odd one was the Hearts of Space web archive. I assume that was just carelessness.
