Re: A headsup re Verizon Wireless paging
I'm not sure I'd fault Verizon, it's got to be a major pain to keep the spam level down on pagers. It would probably be useful if SMS/paging companies posted a "this is the approved way to...." guide for customers. I set up nagios/netsaint with a pager system, and programmed it to send an "all is well" page twice a day to a couple of key people. If you have one of the super-duper(tm) motorola pagers that skytel uses, you can even filter those messages so they won't set off the audible alert; they just show up in the "received" list. I made a habit of checking the freshness of those messages right before staff meetings and customer calls. --- "Michael R.
