Subject: Possible interruption in website service
Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2003 14:04:41 -0500
Dear TechJamaica.com member,
We would like to advise you of the possibility of an interruption in the service of the website sometime later today. This possibility, although slim, exists because of a pending solar blast from the sun expected to reach Earth at about 3 p.m. EDT and its effects could last 12 to 18 hours. The solar blast should affect neither the site nor its server directly, but could affect Satellites, pagers, cell phones, electrical grids and by extension some of the telecommunications infrastructure upon which the website and the Internet on a whole are dependent.
Please visit cnn report for more information on this topic.
Thanks for your continued support of the site,
The Support Team

I found this quite funny. Considering that one hour before the world is about to end, I'm getting emails. Even with the possibility of cellphones going out of service and satellites falling from the sky. Of course I'm exaggerating it abit but it's still funny.
