I forget who said it, but "the cloud" can way too easily become "you can’t get your data because of the failure of a machine whose existence you had no reason to suspect".

I prefer "the cloud is just someone else's computer".

This thread has reminded me of the demotivational poster that says,

...and that's why I don't depend on it exclusively. Still though, trying to get my employer to put a dedicated backup program in place is difficult. We're still waiting on the 3rd party tech--who is supposed to be showing us how to do "fire drills" with the equipment--to actually do it. He doesn't care, mostly because my boss threatened him while working on an unrelated project. This has been going on since March. Anyone want to guess what's going to happen if the backups fail?

Default Voicemail

What gets me is the double voicemail.

The first time you know after his manager heard it, the manager would say something to Mr. Loud Mouth.

The second time, Mr. Loud Mouth should have realize his manager was not really on his side and even if he did not know about the voice mails, he should have realize his manager would hear about his threats.

The only thing I can think of is that Mr. Loud Mouth, was so dumb as to not realize that all phone calls were recorded in his company. Whenever I call a company and am talking to someone I always assume I am being recorded. Even in places where the recording has no legal standing it lets people prove to their bosses what type of person you are and how you treated them.
