"Yahoo Plus" Availability

by / August 21, 2005 5:00 AM PDT

I used to have a Yahoo Plus account and somehow the Mail Plus portion of the account was cancelled. Anyone familiar with Yahoo Plus will understand that Mail Plus is a main feature of Yahoo Plus. Anyway, I tried to get the situation corrected with Yahoo Plus customer service to no avail. (Yahoo really must have a talent for hiring incompetent people.) Rather than repeat my problem over and over again to these people, only to be forwarded to someone else, I decided to just pay for another Yahoo Plus account. I have been trying to do this for at least 3 months and still have been unable to sign up.

Following is the message on the page I reach:

We're sorry, the period of time for which this request is valid has passed.
Please return to the beginning and try again.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

Of course the idiots at Yahoo know nothing about this and are giving me the run around again. They are aware of the problem, but don't know when it will be fixed. What a way to run a business. Does anyone know where I could find an answer or who to contact. The format of Yahoo Plus is great. It is hard to believe that a company like Yahoo put this together.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
