Re: COMMON at Gaylord Palm, Orlando



fixed





Leo,

That's too much money.  The rip-off Gaylord was 20 minutes free and $.10
per minute for local calls.

For those of you collecting horror stories about the Gaylord Palms, here
is one of mine:

As those of you who were staying at the Gaylord Palms (for the COMMON
Conference) know, the in-room (high speed?) internet WAS NOT  working.
One day I had to check my e-mail messages, so I used the telephone line
in the room.

I just checked my hotel bill and my two long distance calls (one to get
the messages(1), and , the other one to send back one quick reply (2))
cost me over $110.00 US in long distance.
(1) $79.67 US -- about 15 minutes
(2) $30.68 US -- about 3 minutes
Totall: $111.35 US

Outch!

Leo Lefebvre


PS: Notice that this message is also sent to the Gaylord Palms hotel, so
they will know that ALL of you on this list will learn about this!
David could probably tell us how many people will be able to read this
message (would over 500 people be a good number?)
