PowerCity Notes

Send Article to a Friend

PowerCity Notes -- PowerCity, which started sponsoring TidBITS last week, was briefly overwhelmed by the unexpectedly enthusiastic response. Unfortunately, their response time increased significantly during the peak load times. The PowerCity folks are working to improve their response times, and ask that if you merely want more information about PowerCity that you put the words "Ordering Information" in the subject of your message. You should definitely read this information before making a quote request so you know what to expect. Also, when making a quote request, put "Price Quote" in the subject of your message, or, although it shouldn't normally be necessary for a fast response, put "Price Quote - URGENT" in the subject line if you need the response as fast as possible. Finally, please send requests for ordering information separately from quote requests. [ACE]
