I recently stopped using my CapitalOne card because every time I try to call them, or log into their web site to manage my account, its a big pain in the ass. 'No Hassle' guess again. So I stopped using it.

Back in spring, I had bought a new waterbed on the card at Jordan's Furniture. Fast forward to October and the Red Sox win the world series, and I have $770 coming my way. Unfortunately, the way they are refunding your money (the contest was buy furniture during a certain time frame and if the Red Sox win the world series, you get it for free), if you bought on a credit card, the money is refunded back to that card.

So they do and I have a $770 credit on my card. So I call up CapitalOne and told them I want to cancel my account and have my money sent out to me. They asked why, I probably told them that the card gives me zero rewards, which is another reason to get rid of it.

So a few weeks after that, I'm sitting around thing where the F is my money? It's been a while and its Christmas time, I need that cash. I call them up and I get a recording:
- A request has been made to close my account (yeah no shit)
– My account won't be closed until I stop using it for one full month after I made the request.
– The money they owe me won't be mailed out till at least 10 days AFTER that.
- Then the recording tells me to hang up and doesn't even let me talk to a human.

Can you believe this shit? So I've already gotten two blank statements from them. And I'm still waiting and waiting.

AVOID CAPITAL ONE. Out of all the credit cards I've had (Discover, American Express Open, Fidelity Visa, GM Mastercard) no card has busted my balls more than the CapitalOne card. And the card doesn't even give me rewards for my troubles. And now they steal $770 from me. One of these days I'm going to have to spend hours calling number after number, lying about my account, and say I want to sign up for a new card, just so I can get to a person to fight with. This is what 'No Hassle' means...

Unfortunately, I had just enough time to mess up the site, but not enough time to fix it and make it not look like crap again. Ooooh well.

So me and my friend called CapitalOne today and double teamed them. As usual, they wouldn't let me talk to a human. We called the number and pressed NO buttons, menu after menu, until finally we go to a human. We asked about the $773.36 and she said she will put in to have that money sent to me. As of right now, it's been 56 days since I closed my account. And they waited for me to call and ask for the money, before they'd send it. But even then, I had called a bunch of times before, but they WOULD NOT let me talk to a human, until I cheated and didn't use their automated menus. In other words, you call up and it immediately asks you to enter your account number. If you do, you get a recording and then you are told to hang up. Only by sitting there did we get to someone. This is such bullshit! CapitalOne has got to be the worst credit card company EVER. I will NEVER, under ANY circumstances, get another CapitalOne card, car loan, ANYTHING, EVER AGAIN!!! And we'll see if I actually get my money '10 business days' from now!

As you can see, I finished the mess I started the other day.

There is the new style and I rather like it. I may update my myspace to match it.

I've also made some changes to the posting script, so I don't have to hand code HTML anymore, which should make posting a little easier. These include some linking codes which I'm going to test right now.

This should link to apples website: www.apple.com mmmhmmm
And so should THIS

Also this should be bold and this should be italic. Thats about it. If you like the new look, leave a comment why doncha?

I finally got around to fixing the photo albums. They now link to my dot Mac account. They have really cool effects and stuff too. Much nicer than anything I would have come up with had i done my own photo album. I've had this dot Mac account for months, and I'm just now getting around to using it.

Also, some of the albums are again password protected. So if you want the username & password, just shoot me a message.

I finally got my money. About 2.5 months after Jordan's Furniture refunded it to my credit card. Mere words are not nearly enough to describe my hatred for this company. The whole reason I closed my account was because I was so pissed off that I could never log in to my account online, and I could never get through to a human when trying to call up and complain about it.

Having done a few google searches, it looks like I've made out quite well though. Often times, people dealing with CapitalOne do NOT get their money back. What a rip off.

Michelle mentioned me in her blog today. It's all downhill from here ;-) I guess I made a decent website after all. And those Raleza's are all about calling me a genius. Hooray for my ego!

I had to take the shock off my Maverick so I can send it in and get it fixed. It makes some really funny noises when you compress it. And during the summer, the dampening went away completely for like an hour, then it came back and was fine. Very strange. So they're going to fix it. Meanwhile, the shock is not just suspension, its a structural piece of the Maverick frames, so when you remove it, the bike kinda falls apart. It makes me sad to see my bike like this. Oh well, it will be back whole soon enough.

I might be selling it anyway, I'm not that attached to it :-) I need an upgrade to their bigger frame.

BTW the title of this posting is a reference to Deep Space Nine, NOT a reference to a shitty Vin Diesel movie.

I made a new photo album, "Me Biking". Its a bunch of pics I got my hands on from all the DieselBikes rides I was on last year. They are all from Lynn and B&Ts, but I'll probably add more from the Fells and other places.

I'm getting pretty high on that thing. I'm still too scared to go above it but one of these days I will...
