Just did a quick calculate on my usage meter and says I have used $2.54 of accountable traffic 1.65GB @ $1.54 and then I subtracted 69.95 for fusion from $72.49 on the cost to date and that equals $2.54 so no problems here.

Its correct again.

Either its fixed, or its some form of time based bug

My Firefox Xnet plugin is broken (exclamation mark in red circle) and the Xnet Usage Monitor (V1.7) reports

Local 0.08GB
National 0.39GB
International 21.01GB
Accounable Data 23.41GB
Cost to Date $97.89

I'm on the Flood Plan, so the above doesn't quite add up... should be charged around $75, not $97.  Just thought I'd mention it.

Hmmm...ok, its not fixed...the 'Cost to date' was correct for a short time there, but incorrect again now.

Also the usage meter zeroed again for a short time (totals back now though)...appears to be a pattern as another geekzoner sugested...

Now thats interesting....

My laptop 'Cost to Date' is incorrect (was correct breifly earlier today), with a Cost to Date of: $37.48
My desktop Cost to Date is correct though, with a Cost to Date of: $36.03

I 'Refreshed' both to look for differences, make sure both were upto date...
They both state the same data count in all fields...

Hmmmm...

What did WxC say when you rang the helpdesk?

This is fixed now, so the Cost to date is accurate now.
I've removed the random number generator  Wink

Cheers,

Filterer:

No, it was a serious question asked becuase I know TheBartender said:
Furthermore, I am in no rush, I am sure it is just a bug that will get ironed out like all the rest, and can wait untill Monday before making a call to the call center to logg a fault...


So I was wondering if he (or anyone else who posted saying that they had the problem) had called WxC, and what the helpdesk said about it.

Why, they were already aware.


Frio 23:30 on sunday night: We are aware of reports of the problem
Mav 0630 monday am: We are looking into it

It it would seem redundant to then ring the help desk when they opened.
What would you say? "I know you are aware of this problem, but I thought I would waste some of your time anyway"

edit: Perhaps I misread your post, I can't work out if you are being sarcastic or not ;)

Why? Because geekzone is not the helpdesk. Cranz put it so well:
The WXC staff are not here as a personal fault logging service, all faults should be logged through the correct processes for any company.. I.e. contact their support team first - this is WXC's first point of contact just like any other company.

Besides, the people who fix it may well hang out here, but nonetheless, if everyone started coming to the Geekzone forums for support, then it puts more work on the technicians, cause I'm sure they have to log it through the system anyway.

Edit: No that was not a sarcastic reply. I am genuinely interested in what the WxC helpdesk had to say. :)
