    Drat, budget cuts are annoying...

    Just when I wanted to go pick up an EZ-pass so my work travels will be just 'that much' easier, NY goes and shuts down 4 regional 'walk in' centers. Now i can still pick up an EZ pass locally ,but it will require my going home, accessing their website and setting up my account, whereas the walk in center I'd have been good to to go immediately.

    *sigh*

    ah well, supposedly they're saving $1,000,000 per year by closing the centers. I suppose fiscal responsibility is a good thing, so I can't fault them for trying to balance the budget... however... they could have waited til the end of the year! Argh!

    Well Ned there is a price tag to convenience and its becoming a little to unaffordable for the whole world not just NY.

    in this case, it wasn't quite as painful as it might have been. I picked up the new tag on my way home, went online, created an account and I'm all set in about 10 minutes... so in restrospect I was wrong. that was E-Z, maybe NY knew what they were doing after all.
