I’m : a web and mobile developer based in the Manning Valley, Australia.

Why bother?

As is the usual tradition I got a few SMS messages from friends and family to wish me/us a good New Year. Thanks for that and I do appreciate it - but what really annoys me is when I get a bog standard message that has obviously been sent to everyone in their address book.

Uhm it does not mean anything and looks really cheap ... especially when it shows up as "FW: Happy New Year!". Do you think that they even knew it would do that?

So save a few cents and exclude me from your mass mailing again!
