Verizon People Are Dumb

So the phone bill comes in and they made a completely retarded mistake.

Here’s the bill. I hilighted the part that’s messed up. Since it’s small I have an image below it showing what the hilighted part said.

The regular monthly charge for my packages is $49.95. With my discount, it goes up to $54.95! First of all, it’s supposed to be a $5 discount, so why did they write 4.50? Traditionally, when you get a discount, you are supposed to lower the price, not raise it! Everyone check your Verizon bills because they are clueless and probably get away with this all the time. A three year old can add and subtract better than the people workng in billing. Honestly…

…you get slammed with work. Here I am thinking I’ll have a nice easy last week until break, but no. This past week was awful. And there I was thinking “only 5 more days until a nice week off.” Wrong!!! When you get slapped with three research papers and three assignments for another class, it’s not fun. And these three research papers are only worth one test grade! That’s crazy – it should be worth more.

What can you do? Oh well… There goes my break.

Uploader Fixed

It’s up again – now with a nice little php script that password protects it. So yeah… Nothing else to say. You put the username and password in and use the uploader. If you have access to it, consider yourself special. Don’t forget to log out by clicking the button on the upper right corner of the uploader, especially if you are on public computers. (*cough school cough*)

Now it’s time for me to watch the Superbowl. W00t.

Edit: The script is a little funky in Internet Explorer (If you press the back button you will get a “page can not be displayed” message. To correct, just go to the main uploaderr page and log in again. Firefox keeps you logged in). How may times do I tell you children to use Firefox?? IE stinks. Oh yeah – make sure cookies are enabled. If the cookies are blocked, you’re not getting in…

Uploader Down Again

The uploader will be offline until I can write a good php password protection script to prevent the abuse that’s been occurring… I can’t put a .htpwd on the directory, because then images remotely loaded on my forums or other forums will then nag for a password. For instance, you can be on another site, but if an image was in my password protected folder, then it would ask for a Portfolioso.com password on another site – and that’s not fair. (If you don’t get what I’m saying, then forget it.) All you need to know is that I will have a simple php authentication script (aka password login box). That should do the trick.

Edit: I got the php script working. Now it’s a matter of matching the layout and adding last minute fixes.
