Journal: growing up around here

Journal by digitalsushi

12 or 13 years on slashdot now.. i knew most of you were kids when i mentioned mac addresses are unique, and all you clever fellers snickered at how stupid i must be for not knowing you learned how to spoof them. But that stuff about operational domains was just a bunch of fluff. sigh

Journal: Drivesavers drivesavers.com is evil

ARGH

We paid driversavers.com 6000 bucks to get a directory back off a 3 disk raid5.

The sales lady tells me they can't do directories specifically. They pull all the data completely before they tell you whether they got what you wanted or not.

They got our directory back.

They told me they had a complete copy of our data on disc.

So my boss, a week later, goes "find out how much it would cost to get a CD of this other fringe directory I'd like."

I call them back. "It will be discounted because you already have a ticket on it. The cost will be exactly 5000 dollars, thats 1000 dollars off! We can mail it to you on a hard drive for 60 dollars, and you can even keep the hard drive!"

so, driversavers.com is evil.
