Comment Cool Story Bro time. (Score 1) 250

Back when I had an ISP that had just been bought by Earthlink, I had been keeping my dialup line connected pretty much all the time. I did build in some 'downtime' randomly so that it didn't appear like I was trying to stay connected.

Anyway the rule was that each connection was billable. So I could log in with my user name twice, but I'd be billed extra. The software they used though was not so good, because if the time between connections was less than 6 or so minutes ( it was random) they billed me extra. I had three months of this crap before I finally left them and went with a much better dialup provider.
