Contacted Cox tech support today with some trouble.  The guy on the other end spend 15 minutes trying to convince me to give him my password.  Bad form +Cox Communications.

As a reminder: NEVER give out your password to an online account to ANYONE.  Companies should have a way of resolving issues like this without requesting your private user credentials.

Here are excerpts from the chat:

[REP].: I understand that you are having problems to
loging in on our website. Is that correct?

[ME]: yes

[REP]: Okay.

. . . General troubleshooting . . .

[REP]: Okay, you can allow me your password and
User ID for me to try access. Please.

[ME]: I will not give you my password

[REP]: Is the only way to fix and know really what is
your problem. You can change it them.

[ME]: . . . You should not need
my password to inspect logs on your servers relating to
my accounts

[REP]: We manage all your information, we are help
to help you.

[ME]: giving you my password goes against every best-
practice I have ever heard of

[REP]: I can reset your password too, to verify if was
your account locked.

. . . More troubleshooting . . .

[ME]: . . . I will try something else

[REP]: But if you do not trust in us, how can we help
you.
. . .
[ME]: It is not that I don't trust you, it is that I do not give
out my passwords to anyone
[ME]: ever
[ME]: that is just good security

[REP]: Okay. I understand but, in this cases we ask
for that information for verifications. Then you could
change your password, but I respect your deecission.
 . . .

[ME]: That is a horrible policy, and you should do what
you can to have it changed

. . . More troubleshooting . . .

[REP]: I would resolve your issue, but you do not
trust me.

[ME]: Again, it is not that I don't trust you, it is that it is
bad security to give your user credentials to anyone
[ME]: whether or not you work for Cox, you should not
need my password to resolve my issue

John, I apologize if the interaction you had made you uncomfortable in any way. In rare cases it is helpful for us to be able to try to recreate the issue you are having in order to determine if it's specific to your login. As for looking at logs, that is not handled at the first tier of support. I'm not sure I understand what problem you are having, but I'd like to help. What exactly happens when you try to log in to our website? Are you willing to provide me with your user ID so I can check the status of it? If you'd prefer we can take things offline and you can email me at cox.help@cox.com with the account information, details concerning the issue and a reference to this post. -Colleen

Share this photo in the next 24 hours (starting July 7, 2014, 23:53 GMT) for a chance to win this ebook bundle! Contest details below.

The Cosmic SciFi Bundle at http://StoryBundle.com/SciFi is available only until Wednesday night. It includes works by Anne McCaffrey and Jody Lynn Nye, Frank Herbert, Jay Lake and Ken Scholes, Michael A. Stackpole, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Mike Resnick, Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason, and Peter J. Wacks, along with me, Brandon Sanderson. This is a great lineup, and in the tradition of bundles like this, you can name your price and receive six of these ebooks, and if you pay more than $12 you receive the first six as well as Legion, Crisis on Doona, and Perfectly Invisible. All are DRM-free. You can also decide what the split should be between the authors and the Storybundle organizers, and you can optionally pick how much should go to the Clayton Memorial Medical Fund, the preferred charity chosen by Jay Lake before he passed away on June 1st after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer.

Please do note that my novella Legion is the only part of the bundle that can’t be included worldwide for licensing reasons—it’s not in the bundle if you buy it from the UK or Commonwealth/former Commonwealth countries (except for Canada, where it is included in the bundle). I apologize for throwing this wrench into things, but my UK publisher has exclusive distribution rights in those countries.

I have 5 download codes to give away here on Google+. So let’s do a little contest—just hit the Share button (with the ➦ arrow) on this picture (at the original URL: https://plus.google.com/+BrandSanderson/posts/W1CBtaB4Ap3 ) and say why you like this bundle or any of my books, mark your share as Public, and you’re entered. At the end of 24 hours from when I posted this, we’ll give away download codes to the posts with the top 2 most Likes, and the other 3 winners will be selected randomly from valid entrants.

Who can enter? Anyone who is geographically able to include Legion in downloading from StoryBundle. If you’re not sure whether your country counts as a UK/Commonwealth/former Commonwealth country, go to StoryBundle.com and click on the cover image for Legion; if you’re in one of those countries the page will display a warning.

--------------

Legion is a fast-paced, witty, and supremely fun thriller with a psychological bent.

Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad.

A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems . . . for a price.

His brain is getting a little crowded, however, and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property—a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past—Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions—and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.

--------------

Later this year Subterranean Press will be releasing a limited edition hardcover of Legion‘s sequel, Legion: Skin Deep, which you can preorder here: http://subterraneanpress.com/store/product_detail/legion_skin_deep and read a preview of here: http://brandonsanderson.com/legion-skin-deep If you haven’t read the original Legion, this new bundle is a great way to whet your appetite and get ready for the sequel.

Batman, Elsa, and Spider-man walked into a Costco . . .

Is there a punchline to that?

When my front bumper fell off, I found Westcoast Auto Body to have excellent reviews. I contacted them, and Frank personally gave me an estimate over the phone. When I arrived at his location with the vehicle, he looked it over with me to get a more complete estimate. He was very understanding with my desire to get the job done on a budget, and only fixed the damages I had indicated on the vehicle. After securing some after market parts for me (to keep costs lower), he called me personally to let me know that some extra work needed to be done (which had not been apparent during the estimate), to get approval for the extra charges. On the whole, the work performed exceeded my expectations. Although the office is a little disorganized, Frank is excellent at what he does, will work with you individually to get your vehicle looking nice, and seems to genuinely care about each of his customers.

Fraudulent pricing practices. Signage indicated one price, which was accurately reflected on the pump, however, once I selected the grade I wanted, I was charged 5 cents more per gallon for that grade than the signage and pump advertised.

Good food, however when we went to pay for our meal with a $100 bill, they told us that they didn't have change and couldn't accept the money. We will not be returning as a result.

Delicious, but pricey. We ordered our meal take out, and picked it up at the restaurant.

Loud and busy. Multiple staff were bombarding me with questions at the same time while I tried to order 4 sandwiches. They skimped on the vegetables, and tried to toast my sandwich even when I asked them not to.

Staff is below average. They do not listen well when you order, and are not always on top of the freshness of the apples and drinks in the fridge. Received expired and rotting apples from this location once. They can also be stingy with the vegetables.
