Thanks guys! We've made it to $178. The bill is paid! :smile:

Until we get billed again next year, any new donations are just good vibes, good will, (and compensation for the time i spend maintaining the site).

Cheers,

I have removed the paypal link, as I am having troubles with them right now!
For any further donations, please use kagi (info at top of thread).

Thanks,

In case you're wondering, the reason I stopped using Paypal was because I had received a fraudulent payment (unrelated to planetz donations -- it was an auction payment), that paypal reversed, and left me with a big negative balance, blah blah blah. Their seller protection policy sucks - it favors the scammer. Basically I don't want to do business with them anymore!

I thought I was the only one to complain PayPal... There were the days of good cooperation and then worse times came - they wanted some additional data from me to make me be able to use the service further. I e-mailed them what's wrong and got an answer 'Polish citizens are no longer supported'. I felt somehow worse breed :cry: The situation is weird as I can't use the service but also can't remove myself from it because I haven't fullfilled the mentioned requests... Shame!

Oh, yeah Paypal's protection policy is quite awful. It's the handiest payment service, but it sucks if you get reversals 1/3rd of the time. I sell webdesign and animation services, and you wouldn't believe how many people do reversals or use fraudulent funds -- and get away with it!!

Hmmm. I hope I didn't pay for the next 10 years. Kagi was a bit cagey tonight.

Anywho, sent some money.

Thanks for the great site, John! :smile:

If you do not receive the product from Planet Z within 48 hours after you receive the kagi notification email, please send email to support @ planetz . com.
Well John, I'm curious what kinda product I'll receive within the next 48 hours for my 25 bucks :wink:
Keep up the good work!
Cheers,
Rob
