Re: Backups and redundancy, FFS
Considering the majority of Reg readers are supposedly from a technical/systems background, I’m surprised that downvotes outweigh the upvotes on this one...
We know that 100% uptime is BS, so if you can’t be ars*d to implement a simple fallback solution, stop whinging.
Similar to the OP, my primary bank issues Visa only cards. So, I also have a MasterCard from another provider as a fallback for *when* the Visa or my bank’s own systems fail. Costs me nothing (no annual fee), and is a simple solution to avoid the drama.
Avoid the drama, folks xx
