And then there's the ATT U-Verse outage for the better part of a week.


On the other hand, I've been unsuccessfully trying to pay my Verizon
Fios bill for a month now. The credit card died two months ago. They
keep trying to bill it. Can't log in to the linked account online. The
web site mentions that a temporary password can be had from the paper
bill they haven't sent in the better part of a decade. After hours on
the phone the representative "opened a ticket with IT."

They sent me an email reminding me that their billing failed. With no
return contact information, just an invitation to log in to my
non-working account and pay it. What fun!
