Some free things are more free than others


Backed up my desktop PC tonight. I do a backup to CD-R once every two or three months. (The last one was in early January.) I use Carbonite to fill in the gaps between these backups and I also email copies of whatever I'm currently working on to Gmail. I really hate having to redo anything, so such caution is warranted.

Wednesday was Free Small Iced Coffee Day at Dunkin Donuts. I got one cup at the Dunkin Donuts on Route 17 in Ramsey and that was it. Could've gotten another one later, but I didn't think it was worth going out again in the evening. I'm guessing they intended their Free Iced Coffee Day to be on the first day of Spring, but there was still snow on the ground and the outside temperature was just a bit above freezing, so it wasn't really iced coffee weather. Even so, there was quite a number of people at the DD who asked for the iced coffee. Free makes it worthwhile.

Free, but with strings attached...Collapse )
