There hasn't been a status update from "tech support" (and I use the term very loosely, as I haven't seen anything from Google yet that deserves the name "support") since 3PM Eastern yesterday.
I've relied on a lot of Google-based free services for everyday computing - Google Apps and Google Voice in addition to Gmail, to be sure, but also Blogger (since 2004.)
I'm done with that, I think. Monocultures are dangerous.
As a first step, I have a new personal e-mail address. I'll be sending updates out shortly - for those of you who care, Fastmail is my new provider of choice, for the following reasons:
- Good reputation for quality and transparency in the geek community
- Multiple tech support options
- Affordable: USD 35 for one year of "premium" e-mail service (free and lower-cost options are available)
And in the meantime - well, I guess it's finally time to suck it up and move enrevanche to a new home. Stay tuned.
