My First Blogroll
Bill also has AdSense-style adds on his blog and I noticed that, presumably as a side effect of a long entry he wrote about his experiences with T-Mobile, that several ads for mobile phone service showed up, although none for T-Mobile, which would have pleased me more. As it happens I've been a T-Mobile customer for quite a while (or rather, my employer has been and they pay for my phone) but I've been perfectly happy with the service, although they put somebody else's outgoing message on my account a couple of weeks ago. I love computers.
And here's a technical angle to this: how hard can it be to correlate a recorded message with a phone's account in the T-Mobile master system? This is such a basic aspect of data management that I marvel that this error occurred at all. Which just further reinforces my assertion that "all tools suck". I mean really.
