[PUBLIC] Again

Its been one of those twenty-four hour periods. Last night, just before I went to bed, QUARTZ developed the same problem that killed SAPPHIRE -- the right-side hinge seized, and now the case won't close without trying to rip apart the display casing. I'm trying to determine if the machine (9 months old) is under warranty still. At work, I got an email yelling at me for not implementing a new policy I hadn't been told about, and then the actual project we were working on insisted on dying in every possible, creative way it could. Then rows began magically disappearing out of a system database. The DBA group insists they did nothing. I think they lie.

When I got back, I went over my credit card statements to find that Verizon had overbilled me nearly $800 for some purchases last month, so I called up their store. They were nice enough, and asked only that I provide PDF's of the statements so that they could verify the double-billing. Since they asked for that, I can get nothing but "our systems cannot access your accounts at this time" from the Bank of America website.

Oh, and there's apparently not a pizza place on the face of the planet that delivers to this hotel.

EDIT: So it turns out that our esteemed colleagues at Domino's will not deliver to 3815 US Route 1, however, if I call it 3815 Brunswick Pike, its 30 minutes or the pizza's free. Ordering pizza is now truly like computing; you need just the right incantation to get it to do what you want.

That does sound like a crappy day. I hope you can get something resembling a good night's sleep, though...
