13 Cents?!

Someone please, explain this to me. I just wrote out a check for thirteen damn cents to AT&T. Why? Because they sent a bill, for thirteen damn cents. They expelled the energy and costs to print a bill, stuff it in an envelope, and pay the postage, to deliver a bill for thirteen cents?!

Which of course, I have now wasted the paper to cut a check, for thirteen cents, and my better half (as part of the deal we struck when I looked at her like she had grown a 2nd head when she said “I need a check from you for thirteen cents..” like it was an everyday occurance) will front the 37 cents to mail it back to AT&T, who will then expend more time/energy/money to process a check for 13 cents. Keep in mind, banks like to charge businesses a ‘per item’ deposit fee.. (usually around 20 cents on each item)… So I figure this 13 cent bill has cost them ATLEAST a buck fifty to process/send.. (postage to us, check deposit fee, paper, envelope, time, manpower,etc).

Ten times what they ‘gain’ from my payment. And I’m sure somewhere inside the dark cooridors of the AT&T Death Star, some upper management guru is trying to figure out why their stock is trading at a third of what it was a year ago. Here’s a clue my friend, it’s because you spend $1.50 collecting a 13 cent check, when you could have just rolled it forward to next months bill. :sigh:

Next time, I call and make them charge it. muahahaa.

Napster Bad! Fire Bad!

Sue All The World

That is all.

(It *does* make a point. Sorry Mr and Mrs RIAA, but the reason I do not buy more albums has *nothing* to do with my ‘evil’ file sharing and *everything* to do with the fact that every new album you put out sounds like complete and udder shit. Produce an album worth that is worth purchasing, and I will.)

Excuse me, while I weep in my Corona

Well, I think it’s pretty much a safe bet, 723 is gone, never to reappear in any shape or form…

It was about a year ago now that I happened to stumble down that way one night looking for a place to hang out, and well, the other options were severly lacking in fun, so a trip to 723 was in order… only the place appeared closed and dead… uh oh, not a good sign.. but there was hope of course, that maybe the place was just closed for renovations, or maybe the place had been sold and would reopen under new care. However it appears the property goes up for Auction on the 21st, along with most of the rest of the block… no doubt destined, like much of the surrounding areas, to be overdeveloped into some hangout for yuppie scum… just what the world needs, a couple more Starbucks…

I know some people loved it, others were less endeared with the place…. myself? I’ll miss it. Dearly. Many a good night were spent there in the company of friends and strangers alike. Many interesting folks were met, many cold beverages were drank, and many a fine booty was sighted… :sigh:

And the bloggers said “Thank You!”

Last week the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals made a ruling that I’m sure will make many bloggers happy campers. You can read all about it here.

Just when I’ve begun to lose all faith in the US Judicial system, they go and do something right.

Guess Who’s Back, Back Again

I know, I know, I’ve slipped endlessly behind once more.

Since I had to take the laptop with me to California, I had planned on using it to update the site.. either in realtime each night, or just composing my little words of wisdom in notepad and pasting them in when I got back.

Well, you know, it was vacation, so that idea didn’t hold up for long.

So sue me.
