Tell me boys and girls

How much do we hate people who don’t program bandwidth auto-notification emails properly?

For the last few days I have been receiving ever more frequent missives telling me that I had used 80% of my allocated bandwidth for the month. I discussed this with webhost support, and was assured that seeing as it was so close to the end of the month, and that the notices were only saying 80%, everything should be all right.

Wrong-o.

Apparently, the last few emails should have been saying 90%, 95%, 97% and 98% – but they weren’t. No biscuit for my webhost’s programming team. Still, because of that error on their part, I’m not getting charged for going over the limit this month. (Thanks metafilter et al – I think.) So, we’re back again.
