You're not missing anything. It's a scam. If you have friends overseas you can't send them free SMS. You could use one of those services you mentioned, but they all require that all your friends have an account and are tech-savvy. WhatsUp works like SMS and for them is free.
I'm sorry but this is horrible
I'd allow this if the price is cheaper and they give me free hardware to do it.
I'd still keep my network on a different VLAN (just like I do now with my cisco WAP)

Kid goes to nearest pond and dumps them... no natural predators around, fast-forward a few months and boooom! Huge agricultural disaster, yaddah yaddah...
Neil is that you? I didn't know you were a slashdotter

Well, perhaps that will put a stop at the number of folks who simply went back to Debian. I'm considering that myself, but I'll wait and see...
I accidentally became a Linux security expert by being in the right place when hackers attacked.
* Evil hackers attack network
* FBI calls us (we were an ISP)
* Boss gives me full access to all Linux servers and firewalls
The rest is history.
I do not believe in certifications. People should study the material and use it on a daily basis.
Ah but we all know who Linus is. He's a nutter
They can suspend all they want. Who uses this thing seriously?
Well said. Spoken like a Buddhist
I'm a vegetarian who would not mind eating eggs or drinking milk or even eating honey. Killing animals is where I stop. Now plants on the other hand, I have no regards to "killing" them and eating them.
There is no easy argument to adhere to here. A lot of people eat dead animals and they seem to live just as long as those who don't eat animals. We all eat plants of course and I don't think we can easily avoid that until we develop some form of skin pigment to allow the production of energy directly from the sun (or whatever other source).
For the meantime, people should continue to be happy with whatever choice they make. I just hope that choice doesn't involve killing or supporting the killing of animals, which is just my opinion of course.
I can see why you posted as anonymous as this is completely bogus and naturally your own opinion. There is no mention of any empirical data showing what you say is true.
My hand is full of salt now...
Steve is pretty clear about the USB disk situation. SpinRite is meant for disks with actual heads. The magnetic media and that kind of storage.
