Customer dissatisfaction

Professor Death recounts his unpleasant experience with Delta, and over the weekend he linked to Isaac Spaceman's rant against US Air.

Now, I've had nothing but praise for Delta after my initial confusion over Dad's frequent flyer miles passed, but then I don't have much to compare them to except for Northwest Airlines, which these days seems intent on living up to the acronym painted on their planes' tails, NWA.

No sleep 'til Detour

That seems to be the way it's working out this week. I went to bed at a quite reasonable hour last night (10:30 PM) but did a lot of tossing and turning before eventually getting back up at 3 and staying up until 5, at which point I went back to bed and managed to nap for a couple of hours before finally getting up and going to work. Not sure what's going on - probably stress from all this BS with the badges. :(

I'm more than a little worried about this. Every time my sleep schedule gets screwed up in a major way, bad things happen, and this is not a time when I can afford bad things to happen. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'm going to catch a break until (maybe) Thursday night. We'll see what happens.

Meanwhile, work is a great yawning void of boredom this morning. I've accomplished practically nothing today for the glory and profit of the Evil Banking Neighbor. Fortunately, what I do has zero effect on the stock price, which is continuing to rise after dropping like a rock last week along with the rest of the S&P 500. I'm waiting for it to rise another buck or two before I cash in my last set of options; hopefully the price will get up to $35 or maybe even over $36 in the next week or so. I need that money for some outstanding medical bills and my Praxis II exams next month, and obviously the more of it there is, the better.

One of the cool things about EVE is that it allows play on many levels at the same time. For example, the grizzled veterans of GoonFleet are working on adapting the tactics of the GoonSwarm to this apocalyptic threat:
