But for light pollution, etc...THIS is what the Andromeda Galaxy would look like in the sky (naked eye), with the moon shown for size comparison? CRAZY.

Apparently, "bite me" wasn't the correct answer to my previous CAPTCHA challenge, so it then gave me this one.

I'm seriously wondering if Google is evil (aka "why I'll never give Google my credit card information again")

My old office's (where I left almost two years ago) Google Apps account (email) renewal was debited from MY personal debit card (again -- it happened last year too). $550. Boom!

Apparently, because when I sent up the Google Apps account years ago for my old firm it was linked to my Google account, now I'll get billed FOREVER for the service.

*Lesson learned: if you set up an email account for your office, use a brand new email address...do not let it get tied to your gMail account.

I have no way of, in Google Checkout, cancelling the subscription. No way of modifying the subscription at all. Perhaps it is because I don't work there any more...I'm not admin.

My old office even changed the billing information to a different credit card...yet Google still debited me personally. My old office indicates that they can see my gMail address is associated with the account, but can't delete it.

We've tried everything there is to try regarding transferring ownership of the account...with no luck.

It is unbelievably frustrating. Next July, I'll see another $550 charge...

I'm pretty sure that if I could get someone at Google on the phone, we could quickly fix the issue. Here's the evil part...Google doesn't allow you to talk to a human being on the phone regarding billing issues regarding Google Apps. Period. Even the phone number they provide my bank (with the charge) is bogus...unless the message "Google does not offer live customer support at this time" is helpful. They don't even allow you to email someone.

So, I just deleted all my credit/debit cards from my Google account. I will not be re-adding them. I just can't trust Google with my credit card information (because they don't provide any way to resolve issues (other than referring to their website).

"Rather than email yourself a reminder to print something, just print it." -- I'd have to email myself a reminder to pick it up off the stack the next time I was in the office. ;-)

Funniest thing I saw today: my eight year old trying to figure out how to put a VCR cassette in the VCR.

"Which end goes in?"

He kept giving me the "you're pulling my leg" look.

I'm shocked we've been "DVD-only" for so long...
