Journal Journal: Verizon Doesn't Know The Difference Between Dollars & Cents

A Verizon Wireless customer is keeping the internet updated on his quest to be freed from a $71 bill after he was quoted the amazing rate of .002 cents/kilobyte. Verizon then sent him a bill for .002 DOLLARS per kilobyte. He is fighting the bill on the grounds that he was quoted in cents. You can follow his adventures in educating a multi-billion dollar communications giant that .002 of a penny saved is .002 of a penny earned.

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
