Some months back, I signed up for Big Pond broadband, I was unhappy with my previous ISP, so I decided to change.
Nothing wrong with that you say, and you’d be right, except when I transferred my account, Telstra, bless ’em, neglected to cap the account.
I realised this when I received the first month’s bill, well above the contract price by several hundred schmackeroos.
Over the past few months I’ve been whittling away at it, and I have made some headway, but I’ve decided in the interests of my own stress levels to disconnect the Internet at home.
Based on the concept that when you are in a hole, the first step is to stop digging.
Rest assured AWOL will continue on strong, I’m not going anywhere, I’ll just be posting from public internet terminals rather than my own lounge room.
The spin off effect for you guys the readers is that it may take slightly longer for me to respond to comments made.
Other than that, it’s business as usual, just letting everyone know up front so you didn’t think I’d forgotten about you all.
