Stardock Closed for the Holidays
Jan 5, 2015 8:45

Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

On the lighter side: €11,721,000,000,000,000 phone bill

That’s more than the world’s GDP.

And you thought yours was bad. This lady only wanted to close out her account. I figure if it were true, she’d be the reason for the next world recession.

Neowin published the article…

A printing error indeed. That works out to $54.3 trillion dollars (U.S.).

I wonder what her husband said…

Oh, it's OK.

She doesn't have to pay it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

....which is ever so nice of them.  I expect she might have had to work late a few nights a week to cover it.....

Reminds me of the time on Red Dwarf where he found out he had left a light on in the bathroom for 3 million years...  and the Electricity Board was coming to collect.

GOOD GWAVY TWAIN! Is she on a time payment plan? Might take a few million years to pay it off.

I wonder what her husband said…

With that much phone usage, he probably couldn't get a word in edgewise.

He'd only have to wait 'til she was too weak from malnourishment....

That bill alone will solve Euro zone problems

He is probably resigned to it.

Quoting Fuzzy Logic,

Don't speak to me about gas and electric bills.  We are using less and less each quarter, yet the bills keep going up and up.  And what really shits me is that the CEO of my electricity provider just took a 1.5 million dollar pay increase, taking his annual salary, with share options and bonuses to $8.7 million... and he is only one of dozens at the company who took a huge pay increase this year.  This is not the reason we are being told electricity prices are rising, however. 

The reason we are being told electricity prices are going up is to put up new infrastructure to cope with increasing demand, yet all I'm seeing going up lately is bills and executive pay levels, and at alarming rates at that.  And what's this bullshit about increasing demand?  Everybody I know is using much less electricity than in the previous quarters, and in some cases by rather substantial amounts, so WhereTF is this increasing demand coming from, as usage shrinks and bills keep rising considerably?

Ours are going up again. After 18%+ rises earlier in the year, its now another 8%.

Why doesn't the price come down when the wholesale price drops?

What happens to the billions of profit they make?

42.

Into their pockets and stockholders pockets... unless it's "nationalized". Then it's into the government's pocket (read politician's and their retirement funds).

You misread some of that, the 54 trillion was mentioned as a reference to the total GDP of the world, the amount owed worked out to much, much more than that.

Mind you, this is in Australia. Sounds like a number of CEO's/SOB's here in the US...

And the number one opponent to the Carbon Tax took.....how much was it last year? .....oh, that's right....something around 36 BILLION....

Just to put that into perspective.....40 hour week..... 50 weeks a year....THREE POINT SIX MILLION DOLLARS per HOUR.

....if you're still lost....that's a $1000 per second.
