|My UPS unit made the "need battery" noise right after I turned it off and on again today :(
I know it works for at least a couple seconds at a time, since the power went out recently, but it immediately started beeping like crazy during its 3-second ordeal... It's mean.
Called the cable company about the pay-per-view charges... they wondered if perhaps, someone else had access to my home, since they said it was ordered "with my remote". I told them, no, I've even been home during a few of the charged periods, and the poltergeists and I weren't watching TV. Gee, you think the poltergeists might be playing tricks on me? Those dead bastards! The customer service guy said some other department would call me back sometime, then I'd know if they were going to take the charges off my bill... Man, I really don't want to have to cancel this cable and get a phone line just for DSL. Also, I asked about getting an HD cable box, but it would have been $5/mo extra plus $40 to install and $17 for some other stupid thing. Jerks. Maybe if I call my cable guy, he'll be able to h00X0r me up for teh free... Maybe he'll have forgotten me by now.
