I gave in.
I upgraded my now-defunct iTools account to a .Mac account. And yes, I did wait until the last minute of the last day for an upgrade.
Funny that the half-off offer ends today, a federal holiday. Federal holiday means banks are closed. Closed banks mean that the deposit I made on Saturday has not gone through. Deposit that hasn’t gone through means not enough moolah on the check card to upgrade.
I had to do it the old fashioned way. I called the 800 number, and was able to do a electronic check. Score!
Watch me pull the same crap next year, when I shall debate whether to pay $99 a year instead… oy.
