Are you still alive? Part Three

You probably remember my previous posts about Dead Man’s Switch and the e-mails I’ve received from the service.  Here’s a follow-up to the last e-mail.

Subject: Dead Man’s Switch is REALLY worried about you

Hi, Are you okay? You haven’t answered our last two emails. If you don’t answer this, your emails will be sent out in one week.

To update your status, visit the following address:
http://www.deadmansswitch.net/update/

Hope to see you there,
Dead Man’s Switch staff

There’s only one more week before my test e-mail gets sent out.  I’ll be sure to post when it gets to me.  Stay tuned.

      Ummm…. so what happened? Would be pretty ironic if you had ACTUALLY died at this point in the experiment. And with no more posts after a promise, well… your readers may be “REALLY worried about you” :-)

      It turns out that I never received the message. I should go back and give the service another try.

      Hi, I’m Stavros, the creator of Dead Man’s Switch. I know this is an old post, but I’m not aware of any problems with the service, or any problems with sending emails, everything is working fine. Can you let me know if you’re still experiencing a problem?

      Hi Stavros, I haven’t tried in a while. Good to hear that things are working properly. I’ll let you know if I hear of any issues.
