@vector Were we talking Discord bots or Mastodon bots? I did finally succeed with the latter, but am still stuck somehow with the former.

@dredmorbius I believe I have collected all of your links here, for later perusal (along with redacted copies of all documents thus far exchanged): htyp.org/Frontier_Communicatio

I have started a project on my billing app for this. Every time I find myself worrying about money*, I will do a bit more work on this, and I will track the time spent. :scowl::kestraglow:

Thank you all for your supportive comments, and Morbius especially for his research.

@dredmorbius Hmm, maybe I should think of this as a paying gig -- of which I could use more right now...

It's not like I always get paid on time by my usual client anyway >.>

@dredmorbius That would presumably require several hours of time, with unknown probability of victory?

Could I possibly claim for the time invested, at my usual rate of $60/hour?

So, Frontier is claiming I owe them $74.98, months after I cancelled the account.

I sent them a letter asking for an accounting of the amounts which lead to this total, with date for each, so I could verify that I actually owed it -- and their response has been to send it to a collection agency, CCS, who is (of course) reiterating the demand without providing any new information.

Does anyone know how to say "fsck off, I don't owe this" in legalese?

@Ghost Only if you use the cables with gold-plated plugs, and make sure the signal paths are consistent with sacred geometry.


Also, is fried air fattening, and does it contain cholesterol?

Inquiring minds want to know.

We seem to have gots it workings! Configuring the email was the last piece missing, as far as I know, and that is now done.

I have questions...

* Does it come with a tool for converting my old analog air?
* Will it fry all of my air, or just the air I've digitized?
* Does it use DRM so I can only use their brand of air?
* Has it been tested to make sure it won't install a rootkit that gives it control of *all* the air?
* (most important) Can it be gendered? (I need a pink version that's safe for my daughter to use. I'm sure you understand.)

If you're in America, instead of sending money in for Notre Dome have you considered sending money into one of the black churches who were arsoned?

One in Louisiana seems to have had some funding success on the back of this other popularized tragedy.

But there are a lot of other churches that haven't got the attention this one did.

On a meta level is kind of fucked up that the attention economy plays a role in hypocrisy of taking care of each other.

EU: "football" -> US: "soccer"
EU: "rugby" -> US: <divide by zero error>

that's always been my reaction -- have these people never heard of the concept of "hybrid vigor" in biology??

...yeah, probly not.

@cat_tharsis I've been given lots of documentation with which I might be able to figure out the answer, but haven't had time to pursue it... and I unfortunately needed the server back online sooner rather than later, so I moved back to the old one for now :-/

Welcome to sunny, conservative Pine Wood Manor, where the early bird gets a penny earned!

Thought for today:

Sometimes one group of people has to do something that *seems* objectively silly[1] because another group of people is doing something that is *actually* silly[2].
