Well I tried to log into my internet banking yesterday, only to find that the log in screen was now for their financial management service. Now they'd been talking about merging the two for some time, so I wasn't too surprised.

Except that I couldn't actually log in.

Eventually I rang their customer service line.

"Hello, I'm trying to get into Internet Banking..."
"Oh yes, it's broken."
"Ah, that would be it."
"Apparently we have a broken link that's slowly taking over our website."

Now isn't that a wonderful explanation? It sounds like a rushed explanation that a tech has given to someone who doesn't understand the technology and it's grown from there.

I like it.

Of course, I still can't access my account...

I had my new electric blanket last night. The joy of having already paid for it months ago means I could just pick it up when they called. Pity it didn't work.

I think the controller is too technical for its own good. It has a digital display, several modes, a timer...and this one is broken.

It worked for a while, then reset itself; the clock, the timer, everything. Then the display segments decided to come on or go off at the wrong times. Then the 'up arrow' got stuck on, which meant that it continually changed what temperature it wanted to be, and kept beeping. You get the idea.

Ugh. It was nice to have a warm bed last night for once. And snuggly soft since this has the lambswool cover too.

It's payday today. A bittersweet day. You get your payslip and look at the figure at the top and think 'That's not too bad'. Then you look at the figure at the bottom, after tax is taken out and think 'well...it could be worse'. Then you fork out for utilities, rent, loans, food, other bills and think 'I'll be glad when the next pay gets here'.

Account is somehow in debit $150, when it should be about $120 in credit. I have to go through my records (not at work) but I'm hoping this is their screwup that can be fixed. I always keep track of where my money is.

My car, according to one repairer, might cost me about $700 to fix because they have to respray the entire panel. I believe this is crap.

The web interface to my bank has been down now for two days, so I called them to find out what was happening.

As usual I was put into a phone queue, and various recorded messages telling me about services filled my earpiece.

The first recorded message was telling me that with their 'weblink' I could access my accounts 24 hours a day....
