Correction...
Seagate Fail -- their agents didn't pick up. InstantService cannot force Seagate's agents to do anything.

Re: Correction...
I never said InstantService(tm) failed. I said "Instant Service Fail" -- i.e., someone (Seagate, in this case) offered, and failed to deliver, service that is instant.

Though, given that the company chose to use StudlyCaps to name itself, I think your reading of it is probably pretty common.

;) plus the big FAIL added above InstantService's logo visually attributes FAIL to InstantService rather than Seagate. See you in h311 Seagate!

Re: Correction...
OK, fair enough -- and now that I recognize you, perhaps the new owners would take a suggestion from me via you? It would be pretty easy to remove the location bar, and only display the InstantService logo AFTER Seagate takes the call. That way, the brand is protected from misassociations like this. :)

About Me

I believe in humanity: our indwelling capacity for good, our insatiable desire to make ourselves known to one another, our coruscating passion for knowledge, our ability to handle the truth, and our capacity for learning from really dumb mistakes.

I believe in humor as the universal solvent of ignorance, grief, and fear.

I believe in public libraries.

I believe in using intellectual property rights to establish a sustaining wellspring for the creative endeavors of others; I believe in the Creative Commons license.

I believe in putting final punctuation outside the quotes unless it was present in the original.

I believe in the Oxford comma.

I don't believe in rigid gender lines, violence as national economic policy, or any particular religion (though I'm congenial to many).
