might lose internet access- i'll be back
« on: July 10, 2014, 02:56:00 PM »

dear awesome people that I've grown fond of:

my internet service provider's billing department is incompetent. there's a 50% chance that I will get disconnected either tonight or sometime in the next week.

if that happens, I'll see you before months end hopefully.

i dislike IRL-land.

Should we publish any of your drafts in the meantime?

everything I've been working on (that you know about) is final enough for the time being, so sure :)

liondani I don't know where you come up with this shit but I love all memes and videos you post. I still go back and revisit "people are awesome," that song 'stay awake,' really sends chills down my spinal.

update on this. finally got the bill. they did significantly overcharge me. and I will not be complying. I'm also probably going to report them to the BBB (although I looked at the company's BBB page and they have ALOT of unresolved complaints)

what gripes me is this isn't even a big internet service mafia company, it's a local yokel company.

they seem to be taking their time shutting me off. but yesterday I got a job. as long as the piss I used was the right temperature, I should have enough money to go through a different ISP. so we'll see how it plays out. in the meantime I sit here wondering when they're gonna do it.
