Some cell phone customers will be getting a $5 refund after a technical problem limited their texting for a time on October 8th.  Union Wireless is applying a five-dollar credit during the October 2012 billing period.  On Monday, October 8th, both large and small wireless providers across the country experienced a disruption in text (SMS) and picture (MMS) messaging transmission between carrier systems.  It took over 40-hours to ascertain what caused the issue and to correct the problem.  The outage was caused by a data center in Plano, Texas that experienced a disruption in power supply from the local utility.  Union Wireless officials explain that this center serves as a hub for SMS and MMS traffic nationally.

  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]
