    Ughhh...I just have to vent a little bit. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    I just spent the last 45 minutes jerking around with setting up a PayPal account so that I can buy a new welder from some company selling them on Ebay. Freaking PayPal, now I have to wait for some stupid "expanded use number" before I can buy it. Ughh..I consider myself to be somewhat computer savvy, but this was just a rediculous set-up process in my eyes. For all I know, with as many "submits," "cancels," "backs," and "continues" I hit, I probably paid him 8 times. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif I should have just given the guy my CC# and gone about my business.
    Someone tell me I'm not alone in hating "easy" computer things sometimes. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I got really upset a couple weeks ago.
    I have a certified bank account with funds and I wanted to pay someone for a part. I went to send it and it would only let me do a CC or e-check transfer and not a dorect payment /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I called them and asked about it and they said "The software, for some reason, believes the transaction may be a abnormal risk therefore it will not allow direct payment"

    I asked them what the requirements were to flag a 'risky' transaction. They said "we dont know, its whatever the software designer built in" /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Maybe some other service will come on line someday. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    i signed up on paypal way back in the day... seems like it took about 5 mins tops back then. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif guess this is what happens when things get lawyered and secured all to hell.

    See my rant about Windows XP... MS makes things so easy that they're harder than they were to begin with. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
