[Linked Image] Me thinks someone got nailed with verizon's $0.002/kb ($2/mb!) data charge.

We've got a bright group here, I know you guys can work out the $ figure! Those are both trivial expressions, should take about 30 seconds to do in your head. [Linked Image]

Just remember...engineers ARE the center of the universe.


After all; they define the coordinate system.

It's 2/10 of a cent.
My guess is that some dumb computer kept dunning him for that almost-zero amount and he just snapped.

It happens...My sister closed out a bank account years ago and kept getting monthly statements showing a balance of $0.00. She finally wrote a check to CASH in the amount of $0.00 and the statements stopped.
I guess that HAL (2001's computer) wasn't the only machine that was insane in the mainframe.

Webmaster blurred the name, but the only thing blurred in the original was the routing & account #s. It's a different guy, but the date coincides with that guy's blog. I'm sure they're related, but only indirectly.

That's correct. I thought it wasn't a good idea to have someone's Name and Signature displayed.
