The topic: I don't feel so good
I woke up this morning with a major case of bloating. I've had this problem on and off for years now. It hit me last year on the first day of our annual big Disney trip. Not fun.
Even though it was in the mid 80s this afternoon, I was cold. Right now, my face is burning up and my feet are freezing. I hate this.
I've been sleeping off and on all day and occasionally come back to check my email. Imagine my surprise to find an email from Cox telling me that I was in danger of having my account suspended because I was using too much upload bandwidth. I do some checking and find out that the account I'm paying for has a 10GB per month limit. There's a daily breakdown for the past week. At the rate I'm sending files to my websites, I'll have used 20GB by the month's end.
So, I check their website, figure I might as well upgrade to the next level. I call. "I'd like to add another computer (by the way, I'm paying for two right now and your website says I've only got one) and upgrade to the next level."
I'm asked if I'm using a router, because they show I've only got one computer hooked up. "Yes, I am."
"Well, then, you only need to be paying for one computer."
So, I'm given a credit on that and then they add the charge for the upgrade. It will end up costing eight dollars more a month. But I don't think I'll be shut down. I asked if this was just a recent thing (since their phone queue was so long) and she said "yes". I kind of laughed and said "I bet you're getting lots of calls!" "Yes, we are."
I guess they're trying to catch people using personal accounts for business. I guess if I was charging to look at the cameras, that would be a business. But, I'm not.
Anyway, that was my fun afternoon.
Now, if this darned headache would go away.....
