I Is Dumb….Dumb As Dirt

I booked a rack rental from Internetwork Expert for tonight.  I was pretty stoked because I nabbed a session from 9 pm – 2:30 am for $15.  That’s 9 pm to 2:30 PST.  Since my time zone is CST, that means that the session would run from 7 pm – 12:30 am because of the two hour differential.

7 pm rolled around and I tried logging in….about 10 times.  Readers with more than a sixth grade education will have already spotted my error, but it took me a trip to the InterWebs to find out that my sweet 7 pm slot would actually begin at 11 pm local time.

Oh well.  It looks like I’ll only be using a couple of hours of that rack rental.  Oh, and just to pour salt in my wound…the slot before this one runs from 5 pm – 10:30 CDT and costs….$15.   🙂
