In a couple of days in The Netherlands there is a Google Summit going on.
I filled in the form and got an email they would contact me. Two days later my colleagues did the same and within 5 days after subscription the received the mail I never got. They are allowed to go.
Last Friday I contacted Google (their email really stated they would contact me) and they lost my subscription. Serious. Google? They have a summit for database guys like me and the cannot register the subscriptions of a DBA? Today I finally got the email and that said:
Thank you for your interest in attending Google Cloud Summit Amsterdam. Registration for this event is now closed, but please keep an eye out for future events where you can learn all about the potential of the cloud.
We hope to see you next time,
The Google Cloud Team
I think i'll never see them. They can't register my subscriptions!!
Here in the UK, we are reminded every other week on TV to switch our energy suppliers often to make sure we get the best deal. But ... it's a PITA.
Then I saw Dragons Den, and a bunch that promise to do all the work for you, and thought "OK, lets see..." and they did very well - they find a better deal, they do the switch for you, I'm happy and several hundred pounds a year better off.
Until today when I get an email from them:
You may have heard recently that Spark Energy has gone out of business.
