Fucking Sweetwater...

by Chris Randall
 

If you get the Sweetwater inSync mailing which goes out every week, you know that they "scour the web" each week looking for the best freeware/shareware. This week, in their infinite wisdom, they chose FuzzPlus 2.2. That's very nice of them, but they didn't warn us of this, or let us know in any way, shape, or form that several hundred thousand people would be downloading it today.


As a result, our entire box is running slow as fuck, and all the posiNET sites, including this one, are stuck in the mud. I took down FuzzPlus 2.2 until this storm passes, so things should pick back up, but it sure is annoying in the short term. I guess they just assume everyone has huge server farms.

You just can't get the full impact of that quote without the befuddled lost look that can only come from the leader of the free world.

hell, sweetwater, is ok, they are salesmen. For better or worse oth companies don't even give you that. Sweetwater at least tries to appear to give a shit which is way beyond their competition. Their prices are inline now, probably thanks to EVERY manufacturer having a lowest allowed advertised price.
For their volume they probably are the best, but aside from som quiklok racks and some moitors they don't carry anything else i'd want, so Analog Haven is the place my likes, but no free shipping. And no sleazy sales guy that was required to leave a message for ya(i hate that crap but hell at least the care enough)
