    $40/month and you aren't/weren't interested in paying attention to that ad?

    You could buy Google Adwords or even Ads for $40 and have/100 clicks (or whatever you set your CPC value at and that would have been served you. Even back in 2007 when Google was upcoming.

    What do you pay your hosting company to host your website? Is it their fault if they have a server crash and you lose all your databases because you never backed up your site to your pc? Or if someone "hacked" your server and changed all of your links to point to a porn site.

    underestimated: AT&T messes things up all the time, both the advertising and the phone end. i have had issues with them also. they sent me a proof i told them no on it they sent me another which i agreed to, book comes out and the ad i told them no on is in the book. another one was when i moved the shop to a bigger location we had to get a new phone number, i paid upfront for the fowarding messege( the number you have reached has been changed) for 1 year. well after the normal 90 days they let it go. i relized i hadnt gotten any calls in a while so i dialed the old number and it just said it was disconnected, no fowarding messege. i called them and it took 5 days to get back on, and about a month later i call to check and its gone again. same BS with them took 5 days to get it back. at about the 6 month mark i called to check on it and someone answered the phone. they had given away the number to someone and i was SOL. had to have a lawyer send them a letter to get a refund on what i had already payed them.

    They do the samething with our office lines, and fax line.

    Our property has two different accounts on it, residential/commercial/fax and everything is a disaster. I think At&t sucks in general, as well as their service...but that's another story.

    Are all of these "proof" correspondence done via email? or via phone? I can see where the wrong ads could get messed up, and go into print...but most places (most) double/triple check and require a written "yes" or "no, you messed it up" via email.

    I'm not defending At&t, I'm just in the internet industry and understand both sides of the fence's arguement. :)

    i use that technu stuff you can get at walgreens, get the scrub, not the lotion. I had it all up my legs, up my arms and on my one side, tried all the usuals. Gas, diesel, brake clean, and nothing helped, then i used that stuff and it went away by the second day.

    Plus, if you scrub it in, then take a really hot shower, I swear it was like pure sex!
