Great Customer Service from Pogoplug!

I really enjoy my pogoplug.

I guess because I am cheap, uh I mean green...

It uses 4 watts of power, it does everything I would have a computer running for.

Being the mad computer scientist, I am constantly rebooting, running different OS's... The pogoplug does all the work I need a 24/7 computer to do.

It went unresponsive, the front LEDs are dark and the RJ45 LEDs are faintly flashing.

I had no idea that there was a warranty on the device!

I got a response from tech support in minutes!

They looked up my account and are going to replace it!

Waiting for final arrangements.

After a year of service...

RIP my friend. :(

It is a nice day for flying ....

It is a beautiful day, all is going well...

My thoughts on my approach to landing on the road were of my wife and daughter. I wanted to let them know how much I love them and how much they mean to me.

I met a town full of incredible nice people, even though I made a rude un-welcomed appearance. So many people pitched in and helped.

There are so many people I need to thank, first and most important, The Lord God, that everyone is safe and unharmed.

I am afraid to start thanking people that I may leave someone out...

More to come on this post.

I got to have one, now I need to figure why...

I have a two terrabyte pogo plug. It is hacked and runs many different programs. I can not figure what to do with more space than that...

But the video and build is so cool!

The big issue for me is that I am just completely outright jealous! Great video toys, great video production. Really cool application of technology.

I have some arm chair quarter back suggestions for improvements, but will not pen them... until I build one myself. ;) PS Don't tell my wife where her jewelery fund is going. :)
