forgot to mention, after tweeting about the $15 charge from FreedomPop, they finally offered to refund the charge, and they did. Twitter is definitely a useful tool for publicly challenging any corporate, celebrity, or other entity, because they cannot easily ignore you, especially if you have over a thousand followers (which is easy to do if you're part of a support group like TGDN (Twitter Gulag Defense Network, organized by Todd Kincannon, who later ran off the rails), and they usually, in my experience, do what they can, publicly, to make things right.

so I added that $15 back to my "other expenditures" fund, and was able to place my Amazon order for a new coffee grinder (my old one is falling apart) and shoulder bag (ditto). got them today, after coming back from the Loon Lake campout.
