Why @PayPal is wrong regarding @Regretsy, according to their own policies. « greengeekgirl.
After reading the story of the Regretsy nightmare with PayPal, I would like to find some alternative to PayPal to handle my on-line micro-finance needs. I am especially alarmed at the idea that PayPal can freeze my account for 6 months on the whim of an employee. If I ever decide to put a “Donate” button on my web page, it won’t be with PayPal.

I have gotten tired of all the nonsense hits I am getting on Google, so I am trying out another search engine -blekko. I made it my default Firefox search engine.
It seems on Google that if you inquire about a subject then you must want to be buying it. No, if I ask about “bookbinding” I want to learn about “bookbinding” not buy “bookbinding”equipment or books.

I just heard about ‘Shopping Walls‘. Basically, if you see something you want to buy, you take a smartphone picture of the code box next to a picture of item and you will be automatically routed to a web site where you can quickly seal the deal and get the item mailed to your home.
Now if I was of a nefarious bent of mind I would cover the little code box with a code box of my own and direct this person, who is about to disseminate credit card/account information and who expects to provide this information, to a dummy website of my own design that will collect the sensitive information. I might even relay the information through to the store so that the buyer does not notice that anything untoward may have happened.
(I don’t have a smart phone so I have no idea what they are doing.)

I use the box as a great way to carry Dominion game cards, but after reading about how he uses it as a tool box, I will have to investigate another use.

An intriguing talk. If I lived in a dense urban area I might consider the editing he talks about. My main problem is that I don’t want to put my books into digital format.The second problem is that you can’t fit two people into his space. That will need some extreme editing.
I wonder how he gets that coffee table to seat 10 for dining? I think I found the link. Its not a coffee table.
