I’ve been so damn busy with software purchases, hardware upgrades, audits and such at work, and the holidays at home, and gaming in Tulsa, I haven’t had time to up date at all. I’m sorry I’m keeping you all in the dark lately. Maybe when I get to Virginia and things slow down a bit, if my parents still have internet, I’ll send a little note.

Sheesh, back to the grindstone.


A Letter to Discover – Am I over reacting?

Sunday, December 14th, 2003 | LiveJournal Archives | 1 Comment

This isn’t a question so much as a comment on how I’ve been
handled lately. Through some errors on the part of Discover Card,
a ballance transfer was made twice from to my Discover Card from
another store credit card I was working on paying off. There were
some timing issues that resulted in Discover Paying them twice
and as a result, my Discover account was put in a negative
ballance. I was far over my limit.

When I contacted Discover about this, they explained why it
happened, and promissed me I would not be penalized for this
action. I was thankful. When I asked if they could fix the
situation, I was informed that they in fact could not, that I
would have to contact the other Credit Card, get a refund from
them, transfer that to a check and pay it back to Discover.
Needless to say, that took almost two months (from the initial
mistake) to get all cleared out and I’ve still sitting at a
negative ballance.

I called to figure this out, and I was informed that large
payments to Discover can take over a week to process. That’s
added yet another week to the already excessively long time that
this error has been plaguing me.

My opinion of this is that even though Discover Card made a
mistake, and essentially locked my account for two months, all
they’ve been able to do to make ammends for it, is to promise not
to penalize me for their mistake. Seems like poor business.

I just wanted you to know how I feel and how little respect
Discover seems to give their card holders. Sure, my card says
member since 1997, but I think I’ll probably be canceling my card
once all my problems are all sorted out, if in fact they ever are
sorted out. This is a poor business model and I hope you do not
treat all your “members” this way.

Thank you for your time and I hope your hollidays are less
stressful than mine have been.

What happens when you have
1) nothing to do
2) a sharp knife
3) a large lime
4) a patient cat
5) too much tequila
6) and it’s football season?

I went in a posted some mini-journal entries from last weekend. They’ve been post dated, but I haven’t really posted much since then, so they shouldn’t be hard to find if you just look at my journal.

In other news. nothing, I got nothing. I’m going to Tulsa again this weekend and looking forward to it, mostly. I’m really ready for a morning I can sleep in and I’m not getting that until Sunday!

Something Always Fucking Happens!

Wednesday, December 10th, 2003 | LiveJournal Archives | No Comments

It seems like no matter how hard I try to do a little extra, to help someone out, to get something done at an opportune time, something always happens to keep me from doing it.

Tom asked me to do a banner for the interactive and I designed it last night so that I could come in early this morning and print it. Well, of course, if I come in, Craig has to come in and bounce the same server I’m trying to print through. So not only can I not print, but it cancels the print that I came in early to do. So getting up at Fucking 6:30 so I could get here 15-20 minutes earlier than normal is completely defeated and I’m still stuck with nothing and the possiblity of haveing to come back up early tomorrow or late tonight. Fuck Fuck Fuck. Who’s kharma did I run over this time!

Hmmm. I was going to leave a goodnight message with a phone post, but I must have screwed something up because all I get is “invalid login.”

Oh well. I’m giving up for now.

The 4 hour trip up here wasn’t too bad. Talked with Tom about all kinds of crap, mostly gaming though. When we got here, Tom had me convinced I had to finish looking over the module tonight. After falling asleep twice, I’ve decided to give up. I thought about doing a phone post, but felt it might be a bit wierd to be talking to my journal this late at night in someone else’s living room.

Anyway, I need to get some sleep. I’ll try to write more when I get the chance.
