Just the Fax… (OT)

Filed under: Bill Bickel, fax, telephones — Cidu Bill @ 1:41 am

This has nothing to do with anything else, but as long as I have the attention of so many outrageously knowledgeable people…

I’m trying to get rid of my land line telephone completely, but I still need to be able to send and receive faxes. Is there a simple, computer-based method of doing so?

Thanks.

Unknown Numbers

It so happens that my own son, like Arlo and Janis’s, just went off to college. Unlike Arlo and Janis, however, I know my son’s telephone number. 

Or am I missing another joke here?

A couple of weeks ago, by the way, Gene’s departure was the subject of a clever “breaking the fourth wall” strip:

What Part Of Cancel Don’t They Understand?

Filed under: AOL, Bill Bickel, scams, telephones, VOIP, Vonage — Cidu Bill @ 5:17 pm

Just wondering… Has anybody else had a problem canceling a Vonage phone account? I’ve called them three times already, but somehow the cancellation never managed to go through. Sounds a lot like the scam AOL used to pull, until they were prosecuted for it, in which they’d simply ignore cancellations and continue to bill (former) customers’ credit cards.

I’m one of the lucky ones: My credit card was compromised last month (usually not a lucky break), and Vonage keeps trying to bill my now-closed credit card number without success. Several times a week they e-mail me asking me to call them to give them a new credit card number to bill.

Probably not gonna happen.
