Gmail users complain of vanishing data
http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2006/12/28/tech-goog...

Users of Google Inc.'s free e-mail service are reporting that their e-mails, archives and even their accounts are being irretrievably deleted.

Starting as early as Dec. 17, some subscribers of the internet search giant's Gmail offering have found that their messages and accounts were wiped out, according to some accounts.

Frustrated Gmail users have been posting messages to online discussion forums — including the company's own Google Groups — complaining of the problem and demanding a resolution.

1. But Google TOLD them that could happen. Read the Terms of Service, people!
If you don't pay attention, you lose stuff.

And furthermore: You get what you pay for. Especially with a "free" service.

2. Google also told them...
"You can keep all your important messages, files and pictures forever, use search to quickly and easily find anything you're looking for..."

The large print giveth, and the fine print taketh away.

3. Tom Waits fan, are you? Me, too. "Step Right Up" is a true classic. 30 years or so
since it came out, and I'm not even CLOSE to being tired of hearing it.

4. I like just about everything I've heard by him.
As much as I like him, though, I own none of his albums. A lot of musicians fall into that category for me. Too many years of being exposed to too much good stuff working in retail music stores, I guess.

But "Step Right Up" is definitely one of my favourites.
