The Conversations Network and IT Conversations have running on servers at The Planet for many years, and we’ve been very happy with the performance and support. Apparently — I know nothing about it — there was a fire in one of their data centers or something. In any case, it certainly hasn’t affected us. But the folks at competitor Verio smell blood. I’ve received three phone calls within the past hour, each one for a different person who doesn’t really work at this location such as Paul and Leah. The callers are trying to scare us into switching. However, the number they’re calling is on the national do-not-call list, and since I have no relationship with Verio, they shouldn’t be calling us. And the substance of teh calls is quite sleazy. Shame on you, Verio.
